Please keep in mind that whining about fansubbers (or the lack of them) is frowned upon in the Forum Rules. As I'm sure you know, sometimes subbers wait 'till the dust has settled to pick up new shows, and also first episodes can take more time. So please be patient, and don't whine about it. I've no doubt someone will pick it up eventually.

Hmm. Dunno about that. Miyu really had a much different feel than this. I'd say this is more like Shinigami No Ballad crossed with Jigoku Shoujo.

I was about to drop the series after episode one, but episode two revived my faith in this love-child of Shinigami no Ballad and Jigoku Shujo. Star-Crossed blog is right in saying that the plot is a bit crude compared to Jigoku Shoujo, but Jigoku Shoujo was so restrained that it dropped into boredom, for me.

And just to give credit where credit is due, Fumika is played by Ueda Kana, who was Yumi in Maria-sama ga Miteru and Rin in Fate/Stay Night, and is Sakuya in Hayate.

As for subs, the fansub wiki still shows three groups planning to work on this: Reflection Subs, Ai-Subs, and Menclave.

EDIT: I should have mentioned specifically that it was Solace who first compared this to a cross between Shinigami no Ballad and Jigoku Shoujo.

I'm not really so impressed... about the opening, like any other work from Ali project (and the fact that all of their music sound very alike does not help). Luckily the episode was very good and so the OST, so I'm going to follow the series.
Menclave on this? That's a very good news!

I have a chance to check this series out, and I really like it alot. Kaoru Chujo is right about this series is love-child of Shinigami no Ballad and Jigoku Shujo. Even know that Winter Season supposed to be very weak, it is coming with alot of good titles and this is one of them. Cant wait until the next eps.

Contemplating murder can't be easy, but once that line is crossed the reason to commit one after another becomes easy. The one question I've got from this episode as to what the detective means when he used the word, "Junsui." He says to his young detective partner:

Spoiler for episode 2 specific:


I'll be interested to know how "junsui" can be translated to capture the meaning behind the kind of "criminal" Asuna is. I do understand what the detective means, but I just can't put it into words by associating the meaning "junsui" has. As far as I know, "junsui" means "pure".

If the show can continue to capture the ugly side of humanity in this manner, the series should be one of the highlight of this new season. Looking forward to episode 3.
