And so, the unofficial Paranormal Investigations Club goes on a summer "training camp" in the school grounds. Kirie's more vulnerable side is shown further, and we have lots of good scenes where Teiichi and Yuuko are alone together. Kirie mentions growing out her hair... I approve of this idea.

From an anime only standpoint, the episode was fine. I liked how there were still enough mystery and horror elements to balance out the comedy and fanservice elements. I also liked the colors that were used for the lighting and the backgrounds, and the night sky was beautiful.

The things that I didn't like in this episode were the alterations that were done (yet again) for the anime. A supporting/minor character from the source was cut. Which leads to people asking why they were staying overnight at school unsupervised by an adult.

Don't tell me they plan on minimizing the number of characters for the adaptation as much as possible. Could the fact that there are still only 4 voiced characters after 4 episodes be a sign that the project has budget problems? I now fear for an anime-original episode, or god forbid, an anime-original ending...

Any artwork done by Maybe would also count as official art, wouldn't it?

Oh, my apologies; I'm sure her age has been brought up before, but for some reason I ended up forgetting it. Even so, she's very well endowed for a 15-year-old girl. Not that I'm complaining.

Where do you prefer the budget to go, animating a dull adult that adds nothing worthwhile to the story or into breath-taking scenarios and coloring?

In the manga chapter 2 page 47 Maybe has drawn a picture of the club room with all the secrets unveiled...

Spoiler for secrets:

She has a habit of picking things up that interest her and she brings them back to her room as she did with the doll in episode 2

Yup. Since he is the author and artist of the manga. Conversely any artwork done by Silver Link or directly associated with them for the anime series can also be considered official. Such as those in official anime magazines like Newtype.

Can I take it from you that they really are having budget problems, then?

They have already eliminated three. Granted, those characters were minor characters, but it does make me worry about just how far are they willing to alter the source material, and which characters won't make it into the adaptation. I'm all for faithfulness to the source, you see.

Well, nonetheless, I'm ready for either an adaptation of the manga series or an adaptation based on the manga series.

Doesn't change the fact that they existed in the source. It's still part of canon even if those stories are less important. In fact, I think the alterations to episode 1 is to blame why those stories, and the characters in it didn't make it to the anime.

The distinction is that you cannot truly say those characters have been eliminated until the series is over, and we know for sure that they aren't going to do those stories. The nurse, on the other hand, was actually supposed to be present in the stories told in episodes 3 and 4. And even if they never air those stories, it's one thing to cut out an entire story, and in the process not introduce its characters. It's quite another to cut someone out of a story they were actually supposed to be in.

Thanks for sharing that. I hadn't seen it either. Quite impressive visuals. Every bit as good, if not better, than anything I've seen in the anime so far. Particularly liked the seductiveness of not showing her full face, and those ruby red lips, as well. Do you know if there are any more, non-animated promos?

When referring to doujinshi nowadays its more often than not understood as hentai. Carenelian and Kaishaku works are known to be hentai which is non-mainstream, and the doujins they produced were based from other mainstream works. As for Togashi Yoshiro he was never known to be a hentai mangaka/artist. And the only "doujin" he ever publicly released was from YYH which didn't have any sexual content whatsoever.

We go back to Cosmic Eagle's statement which isn't false but probably has to be reworded to "Japan prohibits their mangakas to publicly or commercially produce doujinshi (hentai) based from their own mainstream works". I think the reason behind this is they believe if the original author/artist created doujins of their mainstream works it loses it's distinction even if the story isn't canon. Fans and even publishers would probably take it the wrong way since the series was intended for a much wider demographic.
