After watching 6, this series has really begun to impress me as a top-notch effort, top to bottom - OP, ED, casting, animation, script... The things I enjoyed from the beginning - Samatarou and Tenko's interaction, Meme, the sharp wit - are still there, but what's impressed me is the way the weak elements have been shored up. The rest of the family are losing their maniacal edge - Papa is showing his loving, thoughtful side, Mama showing her wacky behaviour stems from insecurity, even Big Sis isn't quite as cruel as she was. The more serious elements of the premise are slowly being woven into the fabric of the show.

6 was a real winner - some big laughs, and a genuinely interesting premise. Some nice development for the secondary characters as well.

For me, the best episode so far is without a question episode 4. I strongly recommended this show to a friend, and while his impressions of the first three episodes were skeptical, episode 4 won him over.

Any body have any data on the release of the OP and ED singles for Kamisama Kazoku? Or are they existing songs already?

I agree that ep.4 was particularly good. I think nobody had really taken Samatarou seriously before... he did not, in fact, act in such a way that he could be taken seriously before. 4 was the episode where the series went from being a string of jokes to becoming a drama, without losing all of its humor. Like many such series, it will probably continue to grow more dramatic until the end, but so far it doesn't seem to give up on the humor either. I really have a hard time seeing this end in a tragedy, although I can easily see it end with a reset, without all the plot threads resolved. We shall have to wait and see, though!

So, anyone got any info on the OP and ED themes of this show? Oh, and how many episodes... dang it! 13... Well, probably due to the effects of the anime, the manga for Kamisama Kazoku has been on display up front and center in the stores. Wonder if I should buy that.

It cannot easily be helped... there was a delay with both of the fansub groups, one of them is reorganizing and the other (only one person at the time) had problems translating ep 5, which has a lot of talking heads. So the whole thing was a few weeks delayed. Normally, two fansub groups should be plenty for a romantic comedy.

Another question, though: Anyone know if the novels are finished? I suppose we cannot expect a conclusion to the anime if there is not one to the novels. (I believe both the manga and the anime are based on the novels.)

Episode 7: http://raspberryheaven.net/~adtrw/to...5D.mkv.torrent

I'll be out of town this week, so I don't know when 8 will be done. Honestly, I rather hated the way 8 ended after so much good development, but we'll keep doing it anyway.

I understand how you feel about ep 8. But look at the bright side: It could have happened in the last episode. That would have been depressing. It's not like we haven't seen that happen in other anime recently.

But for now, thank you for subbing ep 7. A lot of people have been hungrily waiting for it, of course. Hopefully most will be able to take some kind of summer vacation while we wait for you to struggle through Ep 8 in the summer heat, after your week out of town. ^_^ Seriously though, thank you. It is like a small christmas every time a new episode of is out! Because right now, KK is my favorite anime and has been since you started translating it.

Well said Itlandm. Wish you to have a nice trip Chikushou. Like Itlandm said above I'm sure I will come and silently celebrate in this thread every time the episode is coming out from you whenever you do.

Quite weird that Ai chan grew up so fast in such a way.The girl in the wheelchair got me interesting in this episode.I belive she has a devil within her.I'm just wondering the little girl who stopping her is Ai chan.I hope she is.

If you have watched Ep 7 to the end, I recommend you go back to Ep 5 and play the sequence where Shinichi and Samatarou are in the tree, and Shinichi points out the particular girl he is interested in. Do you see the same thing that I see? ^_^

Yes, I played that sequence again. But no matter how I'm looking at , I still can't see a hint. >.< In that scene, Shinichi told Samatoru that he loves that girl and Samatorou felt de ja vu to her.Is that pillow a hint ?

O.o Oh the manga! I haven't been able to find that in Chinese (PM me if you have found it in Chinese though). I am glad to find it in English.

The only problem is I have forgotten how to use mirc. <.< Now I need to read through that blasted tutorial all over again.

Concur. This was not a very good episode, and quite a few inconsistencies appear, though that may be simply due to shoddy story editing. Most prominent of the problems is Samatarou's inconsistent attitude towards Tenko; upset at her forgetting their kiss one day, jealous of her the next, then repeating the mantra that she's just a childhood friend who has nothing to do with him.

Problem 2: The re-introduction of Kumiko is done poorly, in my opinion. How does she just pop back and ask Sam out, just like that? No lead up, no explanation, like a very unpersuasive con.

There are other holes besides these, but they were particular glaring in this episode. The poor transition in emotional development has been the primary weak point of this otherwise delightful and entertaining series.

Question: For those who've finished Eureka Seven, was anyone reminded of that chilling scene of Anemone when Tenko was laughing even as tears ran down her face? Eerie... even the laugh bore strong resemblance.
