I dunno, I mean, yeah, Maria's more... personality centric in the anime, and certainly less whorish, but like, Daigo's a non-entity in the anime. Then again, we haven't really gotten to his story arcs yet. But the others in the Core Five seem to be having much more screentime.

I kinda liked Anko in the game, but (Episode 5 Spoilers?)
Spoiler:


Along those lines, I hope I hope I hope I HOPE they make Maiko less annoying in the anime.

I haven't read any of the game spoiler things, but just watched the ep.

A.) Kimono and hairbun Aoi's pretty hot.

B.) Breakdancing homless people are pretty weird.

C.) Swimsuit Aoi and Komaki. <3

Very Aoi-centric episode with zero action. :sadness: The nurse appears a couple times, but doesn't really do much of anything, though looks like she'll probably play a major part of next episode as this one ends with
Spoiler:


Screenies (hooray, I learned how to abuse MPlayer to make these automatically!):


The gradual lessening of the action worries me greatly. This ep was pretty much devoid of anything in terms of fight scenes or the like, and I wasn't paying close enough attention to try to follow what exactly was going on. Tch.

erm anyone care to fill in the general plot of the series? so far it seems to be wandering mindlessly with very little to go on how things will continue ~ besides the only fact that we know that theres some big tattooed boss to kill really so far its been quite episodic (not that its a problem soo far but i fear the future)

ep 5 ~

Well, on the plus side, they're actually getting somewhere with the story. Which is good, in a way. For some people.

The bad is that they're taking another extremely short chapter and stretching it out for far too long.
The bad of Episode 5:

Don't know if this has been asked before, but does anyone know how many episodes this is scheduled for? I remember reading 11 in this thread but I can't find it anymore. ANN only lists 8 eps so far.

Dude, Kyoichi and Tatsuma are nothing short of gay for each other, I'm convinced. o_o

I kind of enjoyed episode 5 despite it not having action and stuff. The animation was actually still relatively stable and they're still doing a good job with the backgrounds and scene composition IMO. Each scene has a good level of detail in it and seems framed nicely too...

And hey, I like emo kids shut up in their room.

I don't really understand the friendship (relationship?) between Kyoichi and Tatsuma. In episode 03, Kyouichi said he wanted the girls to war swimsuits, then Tatsuma replied that it wasn't really what Kyouichi wants (or something). What's really going on between them?

What is really a bigger mystery is what's going on in Tatsuma's head. He actually understood the feelings of Kyouichi when he load all his crap about Aoi being week. (When they ate ramen) Did actually Tatsuma agree to Kyouichi about Aoi, or something more hidden? (like Kyouichi likes Aoi or something)
I have no chance to understand Tatsuma's personality. Why did he watch when the others (includet Kyouichi) was kicked aroung. They could have died.

Otherwise I enjoy the show even though Aoi goes on my nerve. >_<

Aoi's powers in the game are healing and defensive. In the anime, she seems strictly regulated to creating barriers, and telekinesis, as she's been shown to be able to stop the moving of rocks and whatnot. She can apparently also mess with the memories of others.

The anime is about the guy with the hood.

can someone please fill me in on this anime. i've seen 3 eps so far and feel totally lost. First off, why do these kids have powers? i take it ep 1 is in the future and ep 2 takes place before that, so does ep 3 take place after ep 2 or after ep 1? Why do they all say that Aoi has no powers, when all the other kids just woke up the powers themselves and somehow Saikura knows how to use a magical bow-n-arrow that came out of no where. So, yea.....this anime is cool but after watching the first 3 eps.....i just feel lost and need someone to help me out and fill me in! Thanks

I know what Hiyu's fighting style is, but the name escapes me at this moment.

As for Aoi not having powers, they mean she has no offensive abilities. Komaki can use a bow because she's Magami Gakuen's star archery gal, and Hisui is the one who gives her those goofy looking arrows.
