Ouka's unwillingness to see there marriage as more than a fake for the mission does seem to sadden her a bit.

Ouka's willingness to say no to her makes it all the more important to her to sway his opinion. As far as we can tell he's the only person she knows who tries to relate to her as an equal.
Think you have a good insight on it. Plenty of people like a challenge, what they can't have, those willing to stand up to them. Ouka is certainly going to look at things his way and will clash at times with how Kyouka looks at things. Though of course when he does praise her or compliment her its because that's how he feels. Not because he thinks that's what she wants to hear.

After the first episode wasn't sure how those two would interact. But does seem like it will work out somehow. Sometimes Ouka will win out and sometimes/many times Kyouka will have some fun.

It does seem like Ouka is starting to get used to life with the "family" at least. As FlareKnight said also, he only does compliment her because that's how he feels. He's not exactly the person to just shoot lies off to get her off his back. He's an honest person, which I like about him. XP

I just bought Vol 1 today and I don't know if the anime will cover this but...

Spoiler for Ouka:


Also they left out a lot of stuff that happened before episode 2

Edit: There's 9 main story books and 3 "extra" books.

Yeah, knew that. Was watching on Niconico and there was a commenter who kept on complaining about how they weren't following the novels and spewing out other related stuff too...

OK.....it wasn't as hard to watch as I thought. Some scene took some cringing.....especially the flashbacks.....they were painful to watch. Ginka was AWESOME this episode with his "Just an ally of justice" and "Despite how I look, I'm pretty string". And he IS pretty strong....almost everyone is. Hyouka had to hold back during the final confruntation so he would not kill anyone. Ouka once again proved he can fight. Kyouka is way stronger then anyone though she was, as she kicked the most ass. Even Ouka was wondering where that incredible power was coming from. Also...they blew up the mansion.

SO.....except the ass-kicking at the end, and a couple of coments by Kyouka, there was not much comedy this time, even less then last episode. We explore Senkos past. She was indeed the last Solitary Doll, and she eventually broke. She did on to Yuuka as was did onto her. She had an encounter with Ginka when she was little, when Ginka promised he would save her, but he did not. That was the moment she truly broke. Meeting Ginka again reminded her of that pormise and along with the interference of "somone" (you should know who) she was "fixed). After they attack the Oni mansion for some payback, Kyouka gets her into the family by using her ability to controll minds to make the lab think she is also a child of Enka. Senko begs Yuuka for forgiveness....and Yuuka, of course, forgives her.

Interesting things this episode:
- as I thought, Senko was not really evil as much as broken
- Ginka was AWESOME in guy-mode, speaking and acting like a yakuza
- don't piss of this family unless you have and army or two
- Gekka is way more then meets the eye. She seems to have an ability simmilar to Kyouka's
- The Destroyer still has good candidates: Yuuka (Dark side), Kyouka (to powerfull), Gekka (big mystery), Ouka (amnesia, and my money is on him). I don't think the others could be The Destroyer, but this show is full of surprises.

does Senko remind anyone else of Sugintou? If she was voice by Tanaka Rie, it would be perfect.

In any case while she had a well let's just say rough start, I think I'm going to like Chika over all. Especially with Kyouka as her mother now. Also maybe it's just me, but some ways it almost feels like this series could be used as analogy for adoption.

Looking at some of these opinions, I've just got to put in my two cents.
Spoiler for if you don't already know about Senko:

Like I keep saying, Senko was never really EVIL. She was brought up in pain, and mostly only knew how to give others pain. The ones who are to blame are the ones who started the tradition of the "Solitary Doll", and the ones who enforced it. At least one of Senko's parents could have been against it, but weren't. THAT is unforgivable, and those "parents" should have their asses handed to them by the Enka familiy. Chika will probably fit right in, since she's just as messed up as everyone else in the family. I doubt the Oni family will try anything, but if they do, you can be sure they will recive Kyouka-sama's Divine Retribution.

BTW, anyone know how many episodes this show will hava? AniDB says 13.......but AniDB also said that Bleach had 52 episodes, so.........
