It didn't mention anywhere that it was under American occupation. It is just an assumption that the time setting for this is a little after American occupation.

Interesting first episode. I like the fact that the title character is presented with abit of a dark and almost villainous slant to him, Should be fun to find out just why hes killing these people and whats up with his "associates".

Overall I like the look and feel of it with it appearing abit grittier with its visuals then, as someone mentioned earlier, Darker then black.

Starting was a little cliché damsel in distress, interesting thing to note was the change of night vision color from green to red. That awesome opening made up for the slightly cliché start.

Did remind me a bit of Guyver the Live Action movies kudos to the anime and the manga ka they have gone through a lot of trouble whilst designing the city

Episode 3 is weird. Not trippy, just... weird. It's hard to explain, but whilst the show is turning out to be pretty solid I'm not exactly looking forward to the next episode. The Skull Man isn't even an anti-hero; he's just cruel and evil...

Episode 0 seems to imply that the Skull Man is indeed a hero.

I really, really don't know what to think of Skull Man after 3 episodes so far. Izubuchi might have taken it up a notch too far in his interpretation imo. The Skull Man protrayed in the anime so far simply isn't a hero, at all. More like a psychotic vigilante that needs to be put down. The writing and art direction is really good, but the scenario is getting a little distasteful.

Eh, it's not bad but it won't be climbing my favorites list anytime soon.

The anime I've been watching lately has been focusing on following the lives of journalists, paparazzi and news reporters; I might stop following just because I'm overwhelmed at the moment with these types of characters.

The script and direction in episode one is excellent though; I have no complaints about that.

Oh that episode is ep. 3. There was a clip from that in the promo on the website IIRC. Waiting for the raws like everybody else.....

Also, that's what makes anti-heroes so interesting....

That's what they're trying to make you think... though I think you may be baiting people on a bit. ^_~

Ep. 3 screencaps and summary.

But then again, I do agree that it seems he's no goody two shoes. I am disturbed by the indiscriminate cold-bloodedness.

It's been like a day since ep4 aired, but there's still no reviews?
I guess the raw isn't out yet then.

Anyways, episode 4 didn't move the story much.

I have a summary written up for my blog, but I'm waiting for a high definition RAW to make screencaps (I have an analog recording on my computer).

Remember that Japan has been about ten years ahead of us, technologically speaking, since around the sixties and seventies so it is plausible for that stuff to look more modern.

Except, highflyer, that I personally lived in Japan myself during the 70s and 80s, and they still look like mix of diffrent eras.

Apologies if I overstepped in that reply. Simply meant to say that under that assumption, having something that might be a little too advanced under American pretenses migt not be so for the Japanese.
