Animation quality was a lot off from place to place, particularly the close shots of Suzuka and Ranmaru.

However, I really appreciate that Suzuka was given the spotlight to properly inform Ranmaru of the delicate situation he has come in contact with.

First of all, I will always enjoy the Suzuka x Kunikida moments where she holds no back to joke at the back of his expenses or ridicule the poor inspect. The anime really pulls out how sardonic and playful Suzuka is, since I consider her my most preferred character in TOKKO.

Second, Suzuka coming up with a date for Ranmaru and her spending and having fun at the local fair and being eyed upon by all the couples who found Suzuka's wardrobe way odd.
The date served as comic relief to release suspense and tension built from the last couple of episode and to show Suzuka's inner child literally.

Third, those Suzuka kodak moments that fans like myself were crying out for. Just like Ranmaru, it took me off guard that Suzuka unexpectedly unzipped her vest (being topless) to feel the fresh air.
Then, that close shot of Suzuka's exposed bossom after showing her tattoo mark to Ranmaru I thought was unnecessary but that scene alone screamed fanservice to Suzuka fans.

Finally, the episodes accomplish plot wise different expectations I originally had.
Spoiler:


I think the storyline is foreshadowing with hints delivered at each episode that Ranmaru will not make it through the end.
Spoiler:


According to the announcement at the very end of episode six, there will be no TOKKO until June 17th.

Ah, almost forgot. Do you recall why Saya complained her brother was too late for dinner?
Because her wish for Ranmaru was granted. Like all healthy boys he was dated by a really, hot babe and ended more than what he expected.

I have a feeling all the Machida survivors would have to commit seppuku
Spoiler:

BTW, there's a mistake in the title screen:
".7 Who kills my brother " - while it is episode 6

In response to SinsI, the unnamed TOKKO guy is called Inukai.

He's slightly changed in the anime, contrast to the manga that he's shown very protective for Sakura.

I don't understand some things:
1) how did a Phantom enter in Shindou's body?
2) how is their relationship? I mean they're two different entities like Naruto and Kyuubi or two sides of the same coin like Ichigo and his hollow?
3) Is the series only 13 episodes long?

And also an all-out retaliation from TOKKO. Your typical hell-on-earth scenario ... End of Days, anyone?

Well, there's too many demons and not enough Tokko. Odds are not in their favor.
Spoiler:
Maybe there will be a season 2 somewhere.

Oh yeah and another observation ...

I think they're adding more "filler" into this series since apparently the manga has been stalled after 2 volumes (of the main TOKKO story, not Phantom Hunter). At least that's what I heard when looking for more TOKKO manga.

Man looks like it will be a sad end and all the Tokko Hunters will have to die to complete the box in the end.

Interesting about the 5 days before the massacre but than why wasn't the hole seem to be such a shock to Suzuka and Akito when they saw it? if that was the case.

Seems it's more of a willpower when the phantom awakens to who controls whom. If the human's willpower has diminished or not strong enough than the phantom wins. What a sad fate for them to be hunters they have to willingly risk awakening that which may kill them.

I really hope the Phantom Hunter siblings return in the anime. After reading the Phantom Hunter manga, I find Araragi Itsuto (boy with swords growing from his back at end of ep 5) way more cool and interesting than Shindou Ranmaru.
Spoiler for Phantom Hunter Manga:

The story about Yukino and her father originially involved the Phantom Hunter siblings in the manga but the anime changed it to involve TOKKO. If the anime still bothered to show us the siblings at the end of ep 5, I still have some hope that they will appear later in the anime with speaking parts and action scenes hopefully!

Yet again another anime I'm following with a manga counterpart. And yet again I’m enjoying it being utterly oblivious to changes. Ignorance is bliss.
