Indeed. The sNow openings were a million times catchier. Without the neat visuals, the new OP would be boring on its own.

The Caged Bird

The feeling and atmosphere for season three almost deviates from the conventionality standards established in the previous two seasons.

I feel that most of the stories have a unique shoujo theme style that, nonetheless, meet with a tragic scenario at the end of each episode.

What I start to take a liking about the cases presented in season three is that the writers and storytellers begin to establish questions upon the audience whether the victims' tormentors are fully guilty, and if they deserve to be sent to hell according to their actions.

The conventionality of the previous two seasons, which for most of the cases made the stand-alone stories somewhat monotonous and dragging, was that the victim used the Jigoku Tsusshin to send his or her tormentor to hell, because the bully truly deserved it.
But what I start to see in season three is that the victim is just seeing one part of the picture about the tormentor and not the full profile, thus, making herself or himself blind and to close down to the possibility that maybe the tormentor is afflicted by something else or has reasons to undertake on cruel actions.

Spoiler:


Another that got me hooked up in the second episode was that both Ichimoku Ren and Hone-Onna brought to discussion about why Ai chose Yuzuki as her vessel.
All of us want to know what happened to Ai in the space between season two and season three, and why she specifically chose Yuzuki to come back through her. However, as Ren said that will be answered later on in this season.

I have to disagree here. SnoW's songs pretty much sucked IMO.

SnoW's worked great as TV size. As full size, not so much. Hopefully this one won't follow that trend.

And quickly

05:36 - What would you suggest? Screw the nuance.
06:41 - Filing a complaint is legal action. Check Rule 3 of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure.
14:16 - I thought that the If X, then Y clause was awkward. So I changed it. From my POV, the meaning remained the same, so I was justified. I'm not concerned in the least about preserving original sentence structure.
17:44 - I know it would have been worse. That's why we went with dropout. And the unemployed part was because there was an implication of unemployment. I also question how you know what someone else's intentions are. Especially someone you've never met.

Sorry, that was a sleep-addled ad hominem attack.

lol, I just found yet another group doing English subs for this, some "FTP Anime" group (never heard of) and downloaded their stuff to see what's all about. They don't seem to be any lower in anything compared to the other groups but still, it's hilarious, after nearly a month of no subs, now we have 4 xD.

Everyone has different translations for a bunch of things, I should stop comparing or else will go crazy... (it really sux not being entirely fluent in Japanese >_> *hates kanjis*)

A line in the OP karaoke;
Yuurisan: "The marks of nails that nestled with daisy's dreams"
Aero: "Bringing light to the future and snuggling upon a dream of daisis, trailed by scars"
AoShen: "The clawed scars that nestle close to your dreams"
FTP Anime: "We will be close to our dreams after we are buried"

Uh... yeaaaaaaaaah...
(this seems to have become my hobby now >_>)

Love this song... Still listen to it to this day.
Though it seems Snow doesn't do anime songs anymore... or something? From what I heard somewhere...
Pity... If only they did this season's OP too...

I've liked subs from FTP-Anime in the past, but they have a history of dropping shows after a few episodes.

Personally, I think Mitsuganae has been good so far. It's getting into its overall story arc a lot quicker than the first two series did, even though they're also continuing the stand-alone episodic format as well.

Spoiler for Episode 4:


Oh, and also...

Spoiler for Also Episode 4:

I wish Snow did sing the opening because it's a tradition but this opening is also cool.

I hate to admit it, but I think I've gotten used to this OP. But I do find Ai's appearance sequence kind of repetitive. Poor Mikage.

I say we make some sort of fund raising and buy Ai a new PC. Seriously, I feel sorry for her whenever I see that comp of hers, it looks like those IBM PCs from the 80's... Not like she uses for anything more than receiving messages anyways but really, just imagine Ai getting into WoW... ok so maybe not...

Mobile as in a palm/blackberry or as in a labtop? It's true that she's a traveling gal but I don't think any technology out there can handle her demonic pressure xD
