1. What is the translation for the sentence that just pops up (the one with HICBC.com in it)?
It's some advertisement for another show (iirc it was sailor moon live action, don't nail me on that though ).

2. Is this sentence also in the A-Keep version?
Yes, as it was in the raw. I don't know of clean way to remove scrolling text (besides cutting it out ), and I doubt that one exist.

CU,

Episode 4 IMHO must be the most disturbing incest related anime that i have ever watch. At 1st i was kinda sympathize with the woman ( Oyoshi ), i just thought she was a victim of circumstances, but at the end of the episodes she just simply make me sick. I'm a little dissappointed cause the show did not point to her motivation for
Spoiler:
. Maybe cos i didn't really get it. Could someone here kind enough to enlighten me on this.

Call it fortunate or not, i have the pleasure of seeing the original ep 5 release from akraze. It really change my opinion over Momosuke. He seems to be more active in the group than in previous episodes . Maybe all that wimpy side in him is good afterall.

Btw Ogin-san is really the hottest female anime character in the this fall season.

I'm a bit curious about Ogin's and the others' motivations in general for letting Momosuke tag along and saving his skin on a regular basis. Maybe it is simply a whim like they "feel like it." I'll bet as the series goes on, they'll genuinely form a sort of friendship bond with him tho.

As for episode 4...

It seems that they have a mysterious leader who has told them to let Momosuke do as he wishes. I wonder what his motives are. The interesting thing about this show is that there are all these strange supernatural beings responsible for crimes. They always turn out to have mundane explanations, kind of like a R-rated Scooby-Doo. Then we have the monster hunting, arm of justice, who I think really are strange supernatural beings. Caught in the middle of this is Momosuke who is looking for the supernatural even though he is afraid of it. He initially believes in the monsters until they are debunked by the Ongyou, but doesn't see the real mysteries right under his nose. Speaking of real mysteries... what was that tiny gnome he was discussing matters with in episodes 2 and 3?!?

Yeah, that episode was truly horrifying without ever needing a "supernatural" monster!

Yay I'm glad that this series is finally the attention it deserves. Ep4 is the best episode so far although its rather distrubing.

Oh man, now I'm gonna always think of this as an R-rated Scooby Doo... X_x

The world of this show is one where the supernatural is very real, as are the creatures of lore. It's a fantasy. As for my own personal knowledge of Japanese mythology, I do confess it's rather limited. I have no idea what the hell Momosuke's "boss" is. At first I thought he may have been a kappa, but there's no hole on the top of his head for water or whatever.

Earlier episode spoiler references...

Isn't the little ghoul is the editor who is pressing Momosuke to produce his "ghost stories"?

I think he's curious as to what he is exactly. You know, where does a creature like that fit in God's plan and soforth.

i like this series a lot. each tales unravels around a very specific human frailty/vice - jealousy, cruelty, incest, etc - psychological realities which compel mortals to acts of transgression for which there can be no atonement excepting some kind of judgment delivered by the supranatural beings.

Pretty soon they're gonna run out of ways to gross out the audience.

Hmm... looks like Momosuke starting to become a more willing accomplice to the others' escapades.

I don't think they'll run out of ways... the Japanese can be pretty "creative" in strange ways. Ever seen hentai?

Nahhhh....How can they? These stories are reflection of us. With little exaggeration all those stories so far intensified the horrors humans are capable of inflicting on others and that's merely vary in 5 different story. *off to watch another R-rated Scooby Doo - ingeneous NoSanninWa*

Yeap.. Those two little ghouls seem too be the "middle man" that are relaying the information for the Matacihi group to complete their deeds. I guess that is how they know, all there is to know about the villains and are able to take appropriate action to get confession out of them. Also, it gives an idea of what the boss might be in position/status wise. If our heroes are the enforcer than the boss would be... I will save my speculation. The boss seem to be amused with Momosuke. Good sign?

Dont try to watch all of them all at once for the possbilities of having a major overload.
