What's poor about it? It makes perfect sense, especially after the build-up the whole show has had regarding the town being a fake. It was quite nicely done.

Pretty hard to tell if we'll get an actual ending by that preview, though next weeks episode is looking quite good. Can't wait.

To be perfectly clear, I'll clarify I bit what I meant since I think with this show you need to separate these things.

I think that this is ONE of the few cases in which that is actually okay. Things moved SO slowly in the beginning that to take this episode and do the exact opposite makes sense and it is satisfying for (what is probably) most people.

As someone said, everything is banking on the ending to this show, so it better be done right. And I'd prefer them getting it over with much more than having them unnecessarily draw it out over more episodes.

Spoiler:

I can't wait for epi 12, looks like it'll be really good.

This is exactly what I was talking about with CLAMP. They tend to seem slow and repetitive, yet keep dropping subtle hints that something is off, but never really giving enough away as to exactly what, leaving the audience to speculate as the series goes on while making things more and more obvious that more is going on beyond what we're shown, then near the end *BAM!!!!!!!!!* they just spring the twists/answers right into our faces before ending in some big way.

Is it being implied that the 'father' is an Elder Bairn? ie: Same shadowy figure in the flashbacks that seems to be Pretty-Cafe-Boy's assistant.

I don't know that anyone is actually surprised at the Truman Show direction. Those random fishermen in an early episode complaining they hadn't signed up for "this" as they were being slaughtered kind of set the framework for that already.

Good to see it all coming out in the open though. As long as Cafe-Pretty-Boy gets slaughtered by the end, I'll be happy.

So this is Episode 11.....The main cast punk'ed Saya and it was all an act...an experiment. I really thought Saya was really protecting the town....but no they're were just experimenting her.
Still liked Yuka and class rep. That dog better save the day. The teacher and Fumito.....who's the villain here? they both just do their own thing and doesn't give a fuck about Saya in which I really felt bad about her. I hope Saya will go Rambo and kill the twins, tokizane and whoever the director chooses.

Good series overall, and props to CLAMP for mindfawking me yet again, touche.

So that clears up a few things. I wonder what role the dog plays in it all. So they haven't shown the face of the one Fujimoto used to knockout Saya, he also said he would give him her blood. I wonder if that's supposed to be her father. So since the monster in this are different from the monster in Blood:TLV, i'm assuming they are man made monsters or else how would they be able to be under Fujimoto's control. I'm assuming he took Saya's blood and engineered those monsters.

Well from what Kanako says, it sounds like she is running out of time for whatever, so it's appropriate.

The whole Truman Show thing didn't surprise me, but what did was Tokizane turning out to be a jackass. Funnnnnyy stuff

And I finally like the twins! Their shit-eating grins gave them actual flavor, at long long.

In fact, it's safe to say these characters received more development in this episode alone than throughout the whole series. And I don't just mean because their real personalities came out. No, their fake personalities could've received an equal amount of attention in previous episodes instead of being cardboard cutouts - actually it might have made this reveal more powerful, because we'd be more attached to the "characters" of the twins, Tokizane, etc and their "bonds" with Saya, and their revealed douchebaggery would've thus been more upsetting for us. But because they never fleshed out even their fake personalities, seeing that they don't really care about Saya isn't exactly tragic, because they were never real people in our eyes - we never saw them have a real friendship with her, since they were nothing but one dimensional stock characters.

Well, maybe the point wasn't to make us feel bad about that. I don't know

Oh and I liked the very last shot. Loved the use of that creeping piano theme as Fumito shows up and dons his friendly "I'm going to blood rape you all" smile.

That was a very well-executed plot twist. The "Truman Show" elements here had long been speculated at, but the true nature of Saya's "friends" was interesting to behold (particularly with Tokizane, where I have to applaud Blood-C for making many viewers think he sincerely cared about Saya even if Saya was the star of something akin to the Truman Show).

However, the "star of the show" spent almost the entire episode in a borderline catatonic state. Indeed, I don't believe she uttered a lone word.


For Blood-C to be a true success, in my opinion, we need to see Saya shine, at least to some degree, in the final episode. It's possible that she's the only true protagonist now.

How that comes about, exactly, I don't know. Tokizane and the twins clearly don't care much about Saya. Kanako seems to care about Saya to some extent, and is probably the closest thing that Saya has to a real ally here. But after that, who knows?

Saya's world has completely come crashing down, and she may be entirely friendless, as well as with no real family members accessible to her. What does she hold on to in such a situation? Who does she trust? Who does she turn to? What motivates her to move onward? In some ways, it's not hard to see why she's borderline catatonic in Episode 11. It's a very sad situation that she's now in, and how she handles it will be telling.
