Another point

considering this series continued a week after the first series (Shikabane Hime: Aka) finished. Another point to note is that FUNimation list the series as Shikabane Hime (not Shikabane Hime Aka) on YouTube.

I don't know how to begin at interpreting the fifth episode.

I mean Takamaru and Takamasa's backstory nicely explains why Shikabane Hime aren't human, which would partially explains as well why Akasha destroyed his own Shikabane Hime.

Spoiler:


First of all, the problem I got with this episode was they sorted attempted to pull out an empathetic reaction from the audience to feel for the characters.

As if they wanted to make the characters even more pitiful and miserable than they already are to manipulate the viewers' emotions.

The current plot still doesn't moves on with the issue of Makina not carry on due to Keisei's death.

I just saw episode 4, but I don't quite get it. Why did Itsuki go beserk?

I guess that that act poisoned the relationship between Itsuki and Genpaku, and destroyed any sort of happiness that he had intended?

I'm really engrossed with the various aspects of Shichisei. Especially the way they tout their nature of being, and how they're released from the struggle to keep down their desires in life, they just become incredibly dangerous IDs as corpses.

Also, it seems each Shichisei member has their own ways of fighting and ways to get on Makina's nerves in various psychological (and obviously physical) ways.

These guys reminds me of Akatsuki in Naruto. I love bad guys who are so diverse and yet have such a dangerous philosophy going for them beyond simply being bad for being bad's sakes. Though I guess that is what 'tapping into our own nature' talk really is.

Special thanks to SuperKnuckles, DeathKillz, and serenade_beta for their comments on episode sixth.

This episode turned out decent and good for the reasons posted by the above people.

Spoiler:


Well, this particular episode was informative enough to have the highest priest of the Kougon sect brief in about the Shichisei.
Spoiler:


Deathkillz, I know was inverosimile that Makina bare-handed crush Enna's curse operandi.
Spoiler:


I do agree as well with you three that Omune-sama's 180 degrees change of attitude is creepy as hell.
Spoiler:


And we see the Ouri started to grow angst and jealous about not being to compete against the late Keisei for Makina's love.

It became confusing to me to understand Nozomi's reason.
Spoiler:


serenade_beta, things are turning like in the Buffy the Vampire Slayer TV series that in which the students at Ouri's school are starting to realize the bizarre things happenings but choose to overlook them for the sake of going on with their lives. Of course, that doesn't mean they'll play stupid and forget what happened to them. It's just that they would prefer to carry on, that's all.

It's been hinted at quite a lot, so i hope this series will show us some of the backstory for Sadahiro and Akira at some point. I'm dying to know how they ended up in the position they're end, which will include why they're allowed to kill both the dead and humans.
