Um, yes, I do. The point I was making is that those anime don't include in-your-face sex scenes like their game counterparts do, and are based on the actual story from those games (Fate/Stay Night is a prime example here, amongst dozens others).

I'm pretty sure that was what he was trying to do. Again, this might be explained later, but it's another reason why I got so picky with the way this episode was set up.

The first two episodes were fairly good, bucked some trends. e.g. never seen before tail-grab, merciless slaughter, relatively interesting characters, etc.

By the way, where are people getting "leaves" from? Isn't it supposed to be Muy Kowwha, the purple amber?

Spoiler for episode 3:
It was translated as muikou leaves in yesy's sub. It probably had something to do with the leaves being ground up in that scene. After all, someone not familiar with the game would assume the medicine to be herbal in nature.

Aww.. CG .. you've done that scene already ... Super Neko FTW

And yes, I agreed with the idea that Oboro is raiding that mansion for the money needed to buy that purple thing.. not for that thing directly. Also, how could Benawi know that Oboro gonna challenge him later on? From his dialogue... I can draw out his character as one that is so knightly person.. and He viewed Oboro as nothing more then a petty thief, thus as he said, unworthy enough to be killed by him.. Unless, say Oboro going to that mansion to kill the owner for example, I dont think he can get away so easily.

"Honey.. Honey..."

Hey, I thought you were perfectly clear ... correct grammar and all. Someone needs to read the post more carefully before violently agreeing with you.

I like Oboro Character he has brought more interest into the show for me ^^

Most of the other characters are a bit too.... nice and simple right at this moment ^^;; Its also partly because of his twin swords that make me like him. Though what got me about him in episode 3 is that he got hit but it hardly looked like that other guy made contact.. >.> and there was no blood >.> he seemed to get beaten and hurt without getting hit on the body, I hope they animate things better and more beliveable next time.

In the AIR anime, there's an episode where the main character starts to fight against some soldiers using the back side of his sword. This is done so that he can defeat them without cutting/killing them.

Perhaps something similar happened in that scene in particular?

Benawi is the reincarnation of Himura Kenshin

Thanks for pointing that out, now it does make sense.

Also for another example, Motoko uses the sane style to take out the "attackers" of Shinobu and Kaolla, who were actually part of a samurai movie. (Intriguing that I was just reading this volume of the Manga the other day :P)

I didn't really! have a Problem with the blood as that he could of hit struck him in a way without there being blood. (but looking at his weapon (sharp at the tip) and the way he slashed Oboro I would of thought it would cut) It just that.. he hardly even made contact with him ^^; He didn't swing hard (he was closing his eyes with the swing ) and yet Oboro was in a world of pain... ^^;; It wasn't believable that Oboro couldn't get up at that moment and also latter on was found lying down really hurt ^^;; that scene had me laughing.

It looked like more of a hit so that his swords were went flying out of the guys hands. hence the sound of the weapons hitting each other. If they wanted to to look more painfull and such they could of added blood, or have it so his clothes were cut, but they did show no sign of being cut or added him swinging his weapon a few more times. Or just make the one swing look like it would hurt, It didn't look painfull.

Oboro had bandages all around him, one around his leg and around his lower abbs and up around his shoulder.. Come on! ^^;; if there was no cut what was the need? mabye....

*Because it makes him look 'Cool!'*

(It could of been possible that he got attacked between the time of the night to when those two found him.. but bla! I dont like.. that, they should of shown Oboro in a fight if they did catch up to him)

In in the context of this show.. it should of been better. (imo) Even though I wasn't happy about it, I'm sure other might not care or think it wasn't that bad ^^

It could be just as you said evil-samurai.

I was just trying to make sense out of that scene. Of course, there's always the "Secret Multi-injuries-in-one-hit Technique" explanation .

But for now, I'll give the show a chance to move along and just wait for the next battle scene.

It is possible.., also Hakuoro does not have any feathered ears.
They are either human or the hair doesn't let the feathered ears show (altough this last assumption is quite unprobable)

Now.., for episode 3..

No serious plot advancement yet from what I saw.., still introducing characters, altough at a good rate.

We did learn though that...

As for Orobo..

As for Benawi...

So then, it would be perfect, absolutely perfect, if in, say, episode 14 or so Hakuoro regains his memory, turns back to the dragon, and goes evil Kerrigan-style. That would provide for some insane drama.
Or maybe the last thing that he saw while trapped within those jaws of death. Thus probably causing his injuries, physically, mentally. Either way be cool though, should it ever come to that.



Memories. Buried deep within the depths of the mind, a past. Tearing the way to the surface, yet evermore, perhaps part of the person that he once was, should the time he fully awaken.

That at some point, that some may have eventually caught up to him, severely injuring Oboro. Same thing for the other soldiers chasing Oboro, but in this case, may be even dead by Oboro's hand.

Spoiler for With that, (Ep. 3 observations):


Next episode preview looking interesting, -probably even playing well with the previous episodes. That is, if indeed the devil is within the details.

3rd episode was ok, a bunch of new characters introduced and it looks like the plot is about to get going. Although the whole thing didn't seem to flow very well imo. And ofcourse... Needs more tailgrab (ok I'll stop saying that from now on :P).

Subtle? Noooooooo~ It was a sore thumb (or toe?) sticking out!! Being an apprentice physician herself, and staying with her grandmother for so long, She must be used to all these sudden disappearances. Further, its not like this is the first time Tusukuru-sama was summoned to the fort with such an armed escort; also, I don't see how it could be have mistaken as a kidnapping, it's not as if Tusukuru-sama was in a hurry, if I remember correctly, the first time, it was just a regular checkup. (plus they had time for a not-too-shabby fight scene too!)

But okay, I admit, it is possible for a slightly paranoid mind to view it as a kidnap; but thats the point.. its only possible. And to base a whole episode's events on a possibility. Thats what makes it stick out. So, possible yes, but subtle, not to me, no.

I hope we're still friends!!

Hmmm, I'd prefer characters introduced only as they're needed into the story ... not just to jam them all in "to get them all introduced". But at least thats out of the way.

The only way I can see it seeming like a kidnapping to Eruruu is if it was the first time it happened. So its a bit of plot lameness.

I'm not seeing any dragon in the opener of the first ep.... just some very nasty teeth. Unclear whether Hakuoro is remembering a prior self (sealed in the oni mask) or a bad experience (munchmunch).

The fight scenes... meh... if they're pertinent to the story. I do not want to see any "lets fight to see who's the best" juvenile bullshit (though if the character is juvenile that might make sense). Anyone who has actually been in combat and acquired some wisdom knows you resort to that only when there's no other choice. The knight knows... perhaps he feels Oboro has potential if he could learn not to be such a moron. Its a good thing for his sister.... or she'd quickly be alone --- something Oboro doesn't seem to consider.
