At Sky..
Ahh I see I see..
You mean to say that in the past Yorito was a Yoka like Matsuri, hence why he had that dark cloth while walking to the cave.. and that's why he's so in love with the sky now, because of what he feels for Matsuri.
(I was wondering why we saw no body)

@freedom.. you have valid points, I've got nothing more to say.

...

Yorito cannot be a Yoka/Yaka. When he was walking towards the cave his hands is free from clothing and it was clearly exposed to sunlight.

While I don't think it is the reason for what Matsuri said about Yorito, she could have been refering to the fact that Aono is several hundred years old and could not possibly have a little brother in this time.

The world in the show seems to be a cross between medieval Japan and medieval Europe.. (if not earlier) Hmm.. Or.....

It be its still our world..
But, was it normal for men in Japan to wear capes?!.. or really long cloths, and in summer out of all times.

Correct me if I'm wrong but I believe there was some anti-cristain movement in Japan, correct.. considering things like the church and so..
I wonder~

The is my brother isn't that strange if we were to think several hundred years ago she had some sort of brother complex, instead of a love affair. This would explain the friendliness towards Matsuri.

Mmm.. reading the translation it doesn't sound so, but if I listen to them.. mhh~
How possible is it for Matsuri's cut-short reply would have been: But he is.. gone.

The Blood Sacrifice

I should not had seen this episode while the sun was still very high in the sky. I got drowsy at the scenes involving Aono with Matsuri, but not due that they were boring but instead the voice tone for Mai Nakahara and Mamiko Noto in both Aono and Matsuri was so soothing, that my body started to fell into a deep relaxation and lethargy.

Since this would be the halfway episode, I am very glad for Aono to leave the hospital to return back to the house. Thankfully, we will get to see her background fully disclosed for the next couple of episodes ahead.

Exactly what could have happened hundreds of years ago...

I don't think the church is that significant. And I don't follow how you think there's a European connection.

The church represents safety. Holy ground is generally considered a place of sanctuary. Takeshi chasing Matsuri away from that safe place forebodes the eventual meeting of Matsuri and Aono, and facing the unresolved conflict between them.

It also looked pretty cool with those high-intensity lights blazing through stained-glass windows.

Since everyone is sharing their crazy theories, I've got one that'll really twist your mind around...

It's about time someone compiled a list of speculations, along with the speculators credited for them, no?

@Telliamed
Honestly, that doesn't really sound all that insane. You've actually got something of a complete picture going there.

@Nobody in particular:

Plot aside for a second though, I'm more interested in the thematic side of things for this episode. Particularly the details on what makes a yaka a yaka. From what I gather they're pretty much humans that have been immersed in dark emotions. Immersed in it so much that it's pretty much integral to their being. Originally, I was assuming the whole "sunlight burns" thing to be typical undead creature cliche, but now, probably not. Whereas the darkness represents negative emotions, the light represents all the positive ones. And they can't exactly just switch sides either, being their stuck in something of an endless cycle where all they can do is fear their prospective loss of happy things and bask in their own loneliness (something this episode got across quite well I think). Thus positive things, like the sky for instance, are portrayed as objects of desire that inevitably cause pain.

Basically, it seems (at least on some level) that the issue can be traced to the mental states of the characters in question. Which brings me to the issue of a potential "cure" for the condition. Rather than some magic remedy, I'm kinda expecting something like a proverbial "pulled out of the darkness". And with Yorito being the center of attention, both in the past and present, he could very well end up being the one doing the pulling. And before anyone bites my head off, yes I'm aware that sounds like typical visual novel staple that some of us aren't so fond of, but I digress. Also some poster's speculation of a possible love triangle would complicate this idea further as, obviously, it's rather difficult to perpetuate a "feel good" situation for all parties when it comes to such things.

Anyways, just my ramblings.

Oh, and also, Ascaloth was saying that Mayuko might not have the whole sun problem. If my previous speculation is somewhat accurate then that really makes a lot of sense to me. If she's only half-yaka, to the extent that her growth has been halted while not frying in the sun, one could attribute it to her unique situation perhaps. She was obviously fairly young when she was turned, which would indicate a childlike innocence of sorts. She's also not really suffering from that feeling of loneliness that plagues the others, being she's had Takeshi with her all this time. So her affinity with the darkness could be low enough where the sun doesn't effect her.

...or maybe he really did haul her around in that box. ^^;;

Yeah, I'm not investing much in the idea until I see a bit more evidence.

Good lord you people have some crazy theories! Makes for good reading and fun seeing how close everyone is to the "truth".

10/10? I dunno. I gave last episode a 10, but honestly every episode gets better and I find myself in a rare position of eagerly awaiting every new episode. It's nice to see some new faces around here though, seems interest is starting to pick up.

Then I have failed.

Okay, how about this... Mayuko is actually an android. Aono is Matsuri's daughter. Takeshi is Yorito's father. And Mana is an undercover agent for a government organization trying to learn the secret of yakas. Koyori is her genetically-engineered esper sidekick.

Better?

I haven't ranked any of sola a 10 yet. It's early and I haven't been really shocked yet. Hopefully, I'm not over-anticipating, but it seems to me that the real heart of the story is still ahead.

And there's enough technical problems I can nit-pick on that prevent me from calling this "perfect". It's a shame really, because there are just as many details I can point to as being excellent.

Eh, I think you'll be safe in that assumption. Considering the person writing the story, I'd expect the true "fun" to begin in the last 3rd.
