I just finished watching the first episode. The story I think is great and That Hei guy is like a undercover assasin (to me). This anime;s plot is a little different from the ones I watched.

It looks interesting. Hei is a bit creepy. He's like this dork at one moment, creepy scary person the next.

...I like it!

Ah! Shouldn't have given into the temptation. Should have waited until the 2nd episode aired. I should have known from past experience of Bones watching ( ) that waiting until two episodes have aired should be the sensible thing to do before jumping into the wagon. Oh, how I suffer! Now that I think about it, could it be that I'm just as silly as 7th?



When will episode 2 air? Are we there yet? and so on...

I've just finished episode 1. I like Hei. He is so cool with assassin personality. With the other personality, he is cute. ^__^ Yin is cute too.

I have some thing that I don't quite understand. What is a doll? I watched the entire episode and I still have no clue about it.

Very interesting. I don't think that is silly. I thought it was a pretty cool post!

That was a rather interesting and relatively fast first episode. My favourite scene has to be Hei fixing the television set . I just love his faux innocent expressions.

Since the first episode sub is already out, I'm not going to bother with a spoiler tag: correct me if I'm wrong but did Misaki say that Hei is a Contractor for the police/Department of Public Peace ? So he's actually working with her or at least on the same side? And he was being hypocritical saying he disliked Contractors when he's one himself. I'm wondering why those Contractors have to do the silly or not so silly exercises to complete their contracts; I wonder if Hei is required to do the same thing?

Dolls are "soulless" mediums that can detect information over a large radius, basically like a living-radar. That's my understanding.

The first episode was great but, yeah it did go by pretty quick. There are a ton of reasons too love this show it's great but my reason for loving it is going to be the stupidest one you'll ever hear. I love the mask he is wearing in the first scenes of the episode. I love creepy mask like those it's why I watched innocent venus and tolerate bleach.

Watch this anime(some spoilers). Not expecting it to be like Ghost Hunt. Yeah, Heis a dork with super natural powers(like Hiyu in Tokyo Gakuen Kenpokucho), very common. He cant beat the guy in Ghost Hunt, that guy seems much superior than him.

Seeing how he shoots out strings from his belt looked like bat man, except the part where he pulls out his knife, and i was hoping he used it to removed his spinal cord.

He says he hates the contractor, but i feel his voice dont mean it. Hes a assasin alright, but he uses his seduction more than he used his knife(looking foward to the knife).Im thinking, is this another double timer, well it is, since its the director of NHK ni yokosou who made this anime. Probrably trying to potray his life experiences.

Well ill keep watching until something interest me. The action was good in the beginning, but the OP is kind of a dramatic sexuality craving love sort of thing.

I simply cannot figure out how on earth you came to that conclusion.

Specially considering how many times I mention TENSAI OKAMURA's name when I talk about this series.

I'm assuming the way the powers work would be like the whole FMA 'equivalent trade' theory.

The person is 'contracted' so that when they use the powers they need 'pay' their part of the contact by doing something. eg, Breaking fingers, arranging stones..

Pretty interesting!

Pretty interesting!
Isn't FMA's "equivalent trade" just the conservation of mass taken to metaphysical levels? ie: assigning some physical value to souls and memories and stuff

Anyway, yeah it seems like the contractors have to do something strange and specific in order to use their power. I wonder if the main character's behavior is related to that...

My theories:

- We will eventually meet a contractor who has to cut cameras in half by karate-chopping them =)

- Hei's contract is to fix electronics. In general, his powers seem to be electricity-based.

Wasn't Hei's contract connected to stargazing and astronomy? I think one of the interviews wao posted mentioned that that was that.

Yeah, it suits that role far to well to just let it go.

Are you suggesting Hei is a... NOOOOO.. Hei is NOT a peeping Tom.. or at least, I would like to think that.

The preview has me anticipated for episode 2 like no other show in this season that I have watched so far. Are we there yet?
