I think Haruna's becoming cuter as the episodes go. I didn't think much of her at first, but she's a pretty nice pattenko.

That's true as well, since she was not being accused or anything, merely playing the role of a "victim" of a serial killer who seemed to have killed everyone except her.

Especially during the strange hallucinations

I can't escape the feeling this is a tragedy posing as a comedy, though it's still just a feeling at this point. The violence is just a little gorier than it needs to be, the humor is just a little meaner, and there's a moment or two in every episode that's so much darker than the rest of it that it's a little bit shocking. And I can feel a kind of gloomy, morose depression lurking slightly under the surface all the time, just busting out at odd moments...

I wasn't hoping this is a tragedy, but I do hope for more depth. The comedy is good though. Saw the entire set of 6 volumes at Kinokuniya yesterday, was almost tempted to grab them, but then, no time to read.

Loli? With that chest and in comparison to Haruna?

And how come people are calling her twintails, not by her name?

This episode did nothing for me except all scenes involving Sera.

Still waiting for my mystery girl.....could be a long while.

They went out for bowling and never considered buying more pudding?

Good episode. I actually enjoyed this one more so than the last one. The jokes felt flat at times though

So where could we discuss spoilers for this series? I can't seem to find a novel thread. Is it alright to talk about spoilers in here if the spoilers are tagged?

That girl in the hospital is definitely suspicious. My random theory is that the actual killer is some sort of spirit that Yuu is pursuing and it possessed that girl and killed her parents. Now it is trying to get close to him and casts doubts because he realizes that Yuu brought him back (the killer did kill him after all), and wants to turn him against her.

I'd keep it on the safe side and automatically assume no. AS is extremely anal about a lot of things, and spoilers are definitely one of them.



Anyway, I kinda agree with what Enzo said. I know it's a comedy, but I can't help but feel they're trying to actually put something deep/serious in there somewhere (for who knows what reason). I doubt it, but the 2nd episode brought up some concerning information that seemed a little darker than the initial tone the show gave off. I have yet to see the 3rd episode, tho. Will comment on it later on today.

Someone in an earlier post did mention the author wanted a dark feel for the novel but was "corrected" by the editor or something.

Going off the tangent here, Sera only called Ayumu a piece of shit once in this episode. When she's alone with the other girls, she addresses him by his name.

Haruna was also quite sexy herself. Oversized shirts are an underused fanservice device in anime.

I strongly doubt this is a tragedy, but I agree this show probably has a few dramatic moments in store for us. There is some kind of duality in this series, which was also present in the PV. I don't think it's "posing as a comedy", both the comedy and dramatic aspects are an equally integral part of the whole package.

I think the PMMM shock still has an effect on some people. I don't think we'll see that kind of tragedy in this series. Well... at least I hope not.

about the sunlight and zombie. sunlight definitely affect more on ayumu and make him weak compare to other human. but not like he will die instantly when he hit by sunlight. it just matter of annoyance. he technically will "survive" if you leaves him dry on the sun (he is zombie after all) he just dont like it

This really does remind me of Angel Beats. Not only does it feature humourous deaths, but the comedy to drama transition is a little jarring. Unlike Angel Beats however, I'm still not sure whether I'm supposed to take the drama bits seriously.

I'm still enjoying it though.

Haruna Vs. PUDDI! That made me LOL.
In case someone doesn't know about this meme, here's where it started.

But seeing how Ayumu died only clearly showed one person that is skilled with a katana/sword.
I was wondering if this was some kind of difficult-to-translate pronoun problem.
Did she use a plural form in Japanese?

But why did she start wearing pants...

I'm truly surprised, when i first heard about this series, I thought the whole serial killer thing was going to be a plot line that they may once in a while whisper softly about it while the main focus would be on comedy (not alot of romance going on as well), but as it turns out this murder business is taken as a rather serious main plot huh...
