Still find it weird that Ryouko's fighting style doesn't seem to involve any boxing moves. Kinda wish her punches had Takamura's 'impact' =P

Love the hunting dogs =3

Would be cool if Ryoushi moved around more in combat mode to different spots. ie: Batman begins or that gang raid scene from ninja assassin =P

The Narrator speaks...

Is because it's a "Fairy Tale" like story...
Meaning there's a need for a Story Teller... (thus the narrator)
But than again... they might reduce the narrator as the story moves... like how Hayate no Gotoku is, remembers the Santa Narrator in the first half of Hayate no Gotoku's season 1 anime...


The thing for Ryoushi's weapon of choice is...
He's used to only using a sling shot type weapon.
Give him a gun and he'll miss like crazy...

he DID say he's a hunter. now if you spot your prey, all you have to do is load your gun (in this case, lets use bow and arrow/slingshot) and sit still so that your prey will not run away. same goes in the rule of sniping. he's not yet shown that he IS a sharpshooter, but a sniper that covers ryouko's back. also, he would be caught if he was always in that freakin spot all the time. once you fired a few shots you move so as to increase stealth. i want to see ryoshi do a headshot for once now. all he's targeting is the foot and the nape with his OMFGWTF accuracy

Our main lead suddenly decided to try and become epic and the Narrator was awsome as always.

Its a good thing Ryouko showed up or we would have some pointless fanservice on our hands

First off for a sniper, the less mobility the more stable the shot is. Also he was in an enclosed environment where there wasn't alot of places to setup and move around.

Second of all I'm pretty sure he could have aimed for the head, specifically the eye, if he can shoot a moving pipe out of someone's hand. All his shots were to throw people off not to cause direct damage himself.

I'm absolutely amazed that he took a level up in badass . He actually went toe to toe with the guy. I guess it shows he does have some hand to hand experience.

Not as big a fan of the ED as the OP though.

Nothing special to report for this episode which's ok.
Technically episode 2 has nice animation as expected from Hiroshi Tomioka who was the animation director and the only key animator for this episode.
Plus he knows how to draw hair with attention

However I've always difficulties to bear the narrator.

I really thought this might be a smart-ish, parody show but it seems to be disintegrating into just another action anime with plucky teenagers. I'll stick for one more episode.

Hm, I liked it especially the part when Ryoushi actually started to do something. But then they played the OP...

Yeah. Woulda been better if he actually got a better weapon though.

Get rid of the Kuroko narration and you have a modestly entertaining show. As is, every time she speaks the show becomes unwatchable for me. That voice! ugh.

I did like seeing some flashes of valor from Ryoushi. There are even modest signs of chemistry between he and Ryouko. But that voice...

You're right that he probably should have moved but my guess is that he most likely didn't see the guy at the foot of the ladder due to the viewing angle and he was probably paying attention to the fight.

Good episode, though first was better I thought too. Also glad to him showing some progress already, and sniping scene was pretty awesome. I think I'll keep watching show, and I thought the narrator was amusing again.

I agree I thought the OP was great, while the ED was just decent.

I think without the narrator I'd find the series a lot less interesting. I'm happy Ryoushi has finally shown off his skills and truly earned his place among the gang.

poor Kuroko... she just needs some love. Her Onee-sama isn't very generous on that front...

By the way, I might actually have found out how kuroko ended up as narrator in this show: It was all a devious plan made up by her Onee-sama in order to get rid of her, and her antics.
Look, it could have gone as follows:

Spoiler for it's too looong:

Same. I found the latest episode not to be as interesting partly because there wasn't as much quirky remarks to be had.

The other part was because we can already predict the whole hunter/wolf thing from last episode, so the subversion of fairy tales this episode had less impact.

Hopefully next episode we hear more narration and see a new fairy tale subverted.

Take away Satomi narration, and you'd have one less viewer . Without her the show would be pretty bland and boring imo.

Agreed. The main attraction i have for this show are the Fairy Tale homages, so i hope that's just not a first episode trick.

Yeah, I like it when she makes fun of the cast.

Personally I don't really think episode 2 was as much an obvious subversion of a fairy tale as episode 1 was. As I mentioned in my blog, it felt more like a re-imagining or maybe a reinterpretation of of the Boy Who Cried wolf since it wasn't used as a plot point but as a point for character development.

Which was a very good idea in theory, but the whole reworking of the Boy Who Cried Wolf rather than subverting it or working it into Ookami felt a bit flat. The motif wasn't used as well as episode 1 did IMHO.
