not exactly. The facial structure's a bit different, and he looks a little younger too I thought

I actually think their talks are not completely gibberish. Usami obviously wants to do what the guy in the old movie wanted to do. And it apparently have something religious going on. And when something is related to religion, it's more liekly to come out like gibberish

For the gun-wielding Skullman, I think I can actually understand it

Nope, after episode 5 everything is clear as daylight now about the gun using Skull Man

I admit I was as confused as Aohige after watching episode 5. My reason for the confusion was that how the dialogues in the movie were being interrupted, but it turns out the interruption was very important to follow the plot point. Thanks Sshock2. I also understand now by the question asked by one of the accomplice as to why the two accomplice were helping the Skullman-impostor, Usami, and later, have betrayed him...
"The voice of God... Is it not possible for me to hear it?" and Usami's reply was, "The Voice of God is the gospel of the chosen. A servant like you hasn't the right to hear it."
In other words, what ever Usami says, goes. Those two just need to follow. Obviously, the accomplice didn't approve most of the killings Usami undertook, and it was time to cut loose.

My remaining confusion is that I still don't clearly grasp the significance of the Nietzche reference other than the usage of those famous words, "God is dead."

I'm loving this series!

One thing I hear a lot about Nietzche is the becoming an over-man who is master of oneself. I haven't actually read any of his stuff so I don't know more than that.

Up to date (5) on the episodes so far, and so far I'm very interested of the series. Looks like I'll be rewatching it a few times at a later date to understand all the little hints and references .

This could still turn out like the manga, though I hope for a different ending. The ED animation definitely hints at main characters dying.

Spoiler for ep.6:


This is definitely a complicated title.

The Shotgun-Skull is most likely the same man as Kiriko's-Photo-Man. I didn't pause the frame to make sure, but then again, nearly everyone with that hairstyle looks the same in this series.

But isn't it strange that Kiriko started busting out those moves?

When they explain why Kiriko knows martial arts, they'll also explain who the Kiriko's-Photo-Man is. Hopefully soon.
