Blake! His name is Blake! Sharon's servant guy that is. That makes a lot more sense than Break or whatever the scanslations called him.

guys, be very careful with those spoilers. If there's something you want to discuss from the manga and it hasn't been shown in the anime yet, the manga thread is here.

if there's something you want to speculate, please use the correct labels in your spoiler tags (e.g. speculation from ep. 2; or speculation for character X). if you want to speculate something from the manga, do so in the corresponding place.

Pandora Hearts is plot-driven, and those spoilers may or may not ruin the enjoyment of the show depending on what you are about to say. This is the only place to discuss about the anime---let's be considerate for now.

I will also point out that posts such like "PUT SPOILER TAGS!!" etc will simply add more oil in the fire, as it will lead to the assumption that the said portion IS a spoiler although it could have been overlooked by the readers for any reason (hint, vague, etc).

As such, if by the offchance a spoiler is left intact, please use the report function () This method is the fastest and probably the least harmful to prevent a spoiler being spread like wildfire.

For some reason, whenever I see his name in Japanese, I always read Break though... Actually, I like that. Break. I'll keep it that way.
Though Blake definitely seems more logical.

No his name is officially romanized to Xarxes Break (ザークシーズ ブレイク )

Another good argument for ignoring "official" transliterations. Clearly, that should be Xerxes Blake.

I don't really mean that, of course. We probably have to go with a transliteration if it's recognized by the official site, just for consistency. But I do wish Japanese companies were more respectful of English, and maybe of the original authors, who may well have known what name they were aiming for. Oh, well, tit for tat: it's not as if we don't butcher Japanese.

Where exactly does this 'official romanisation' come from, by the way? People have been unanimously romanising ブレイク as Break, ナイトレイ as Nightray, ラトウィッジ as Latowidge, etc. since forever, and I'm curious as to whether there is an official source for these suspicous romanisations or not.

IIRC the First press of the Drama CD or a volume of the manga

Episode two features classic Kajiura Yuki pieces. Guess it was about time i guess, though i was hoping she'd break anyway from what she's always doing and create a score unlike anything we've ever seen from her (Kara no Kyoukai for example). Ah well, it's just a great score upto now.

I'd never heard of the manga before, but I think I'll really like this anime, judging by the first episode.

Ok, second ep helped me to tolerate Ayako's voice a bit. I guess I can try to get used to it (as her serious voice is much better than her cute one)

Wow, each episode is so packed that I wouldn't be worrying about fillers yet. And funny, Oz came off as more of a flirt in the manga, here he was more of a lovestruck puppy over Sharon.

Second ep even better than the first, I thought. Maybe it was due to no OP or ED, but I swear that felt like about 8 minutes - I couldn't believe the entire ep had flown by at the end. Again, this is the series that seems fully realized to me - it seems totally ware of the story it wants to tell and way to tell it, and just goes about doing so brilliantly. And again, I'm left counting the hours till the next release. That's a very good sign.

I thought the same thing, can't believe the episode flew so fast. The ceremony was great, lots of mystery and suspense is just what it needs

Some names are mistranslated thanks to difference in pronounciation, like the r->l thing. Other names change 100% to have a more english air about them (like translating Sakura to Nikki etc.)

It's too bad I didn't get to see the preview of episode 3, I have a feeling it will be just as interesting...

Next episode is probably one of my favorite parts i've read in the manga. Going by the preview, it looks like they've captured the Abyss perfectly.

Shame most of you aren't sharing your thoughts on what you think of the black rabbit.

Ummm...I have a question. Are there subbers who don't sub the OP/ED of some anime? Cuz' I'm trying to watch the 2nd episode somewhere (I would mention, but I'm not allowed to), but the OP and ED aren't subbed!
