just to throw the ball away from the spoiler topic

The episode didn't show Kinji's ancestor XD The hysteria Mode was Passed down through every man in the blood line of Tohyama Family. Aiding the members in their absolute justice.

Btw, the little fight at the end was fine, the magical hair can be good or awful depending on the aceptacion from those who are watching but still I don't like those CGs...

"Can't" and "Not Allowed" are two very different things. Like Cops are not allowed to kill unless under extreme circumstances, that's why there's always a massive stink on the news every time a cop kills someone.

It's human to lose yourself to emotions, emotions is what makes us human. I wouldn't fault Kinji for slitting her throat, I know I would. Hell I wouldn't fault Aria for putting a bullet between her eyes for framing her mother. I do understand the initial confusion, but the confusion was gone when he had the knife to her throat.

Eh, whatever this doesn't matter, can't change what happened.

Okay, am I the ONLY one who thought Riko would get seduced once Kinji entered Hysteria mode? When he got up and left, I totally facepalmed. I mean, I thought he was "the Mega-Playboy" dammit! Ah well, that scene was outta nowhere, esp considering her personality up to this point. The fact that it was not expected made it all the more sexier =0-3.Of course, I would have been perfectly unaware, IF PEOPLE DIDN'T SPOIL AND HINT AT THE WHOLE THING !

The gun fight near the end was definitely great to watch. It certainly wasn't Noir-pretty, but the choreography was good enough to get me excited. I absolutely LOVED Riko's yandere voice; it was f'kn amazing(esp when she got shot the 2nd time saying "iitai")!

I expect him to use Hysteria mode and, in Mega-Playboy fashion, skillfully beat Riko whilst throwing on the charm. Damn, next week can't come soon enough =03!

Damn didn't think Riko would be behind all of this. Figures the most cheerful and energetic girl in the group was the one that was behind this . She definitely used the charms to quickly trigger Hysteria Mode and get Kinji moving into position. Both he and Aria have plenty of reasons to be after Riko right now.

Guess we'll see how things unfold with Kinji and Aria moving forward. I can see why he would want to get out with how he was treated and how his brother was talked about. The guy managed to save so many lives and yet got insulted and put down after sacrificing himself. Could understand not wanting to help people like that. But now he'll have to make the call and whether he can really just let Aria go her own way.

The hair thing was weird, but it's probably not the oddest skill out there. With Aria down it'll have to be Riko vs Hysteria Mode in order to settle this.

I guess you can say that he couldn't and that's why Hysteria Mode triggered .

Well maybe part of it was Kinji thinking that they needed to take Riko alive for Aria's sake. Sure they are Butei, but if they can bring Riko in and have her confess to her crimes it'd make helping Aria's mother a lot easier. While they can say that she said that, Aria does have a personal connection and probably wouldn't be as convincing compared to coming from the source.

Well it wasn't much of a surprise though with Kinji leaving. While he does go into playboy in that mode the most important part of it is the desire to protect girls. Realizing quickly that Aria was in danger would override any desire to stick around there with Riko.

Hmm hm episode 04. Now that this hit the fan, maybe I should release that manga chapter after all...

But Riko was no surprise for the obvious reason, but I guess I never got my wish of seeing a booby holster the lack of Shirayuki is understandable but displeasing, and someone refresh my mind, but were there windows in the cocktail bar of the airplane? Surely Aria's and Riko's stray bullets must have hit more than a few wine glasses

But really Riko, you hate your name? Wait till I tell you my name (though I've learned to live with it and it's been a goal of mine similar to Riko's: I want people to see it as not who it was for, but what it did.)

I mentioned that earlier too. It kind of left some viewers speculating heavily because they never really showed why Kinji wants to quit being a Butei until now. But I noticed something, you know. This series is Hidan No Aria, and as fragmented as the Anime has been [compared to its written counterparts], they conveniently didn't show Aria's reason for intruding into Kinji's life until now as well. It's that thing I mentioned for last ep, both characters had their realizations at the same time.

Regardless if this is what the scriptwriters wanted, it still woulnd't have hurt to show some of the crucial bits they left out.

(cause it was deleted before i could look at the thread again.) but hey, it was pretty dang obvious. who else had access to his room that we saw aside from Aria? no one else but Riko.
Heh, join the club. No matter how many hints I throw out, my words aren't deciphered 99% of the time

But from an Anime viewers' standpoint, it was actually not obvious it was Riko playing clockstopper. Visually, only 2 other girl's painted Kinji's apartment, so I still stand by what the manga showed us, which I had thought it was a close enough blueprint for them to use, but not so.

also, they're using gunkata. badass.
I'd pay gladly

But, last time enjoyed that in Anime form was School Rumble Second Term, but that was a bit more of a comical version

What? You'd slice the cute deadly girl? I wouldn't! Even if Riko had her guns aimed at my balls, I could never stain that cute loli version uniform of hers with her own blood, I just can't!

So, have a few animated gif avatars, not the full set but it's a start.


Though, I'm thinking just fulfilling requests is more time manageable than throwing out random ones, my gif making process isn't basic as it looks

Spoiler for no excuses explanation:


damnit I've had it with my shitty wireless carrier. My post looks like a freaking comment system.

Yeah, but it wasn't until AFTER he left that he was shown knowing the result of the info Riko gave him. When she said 'Shirayuki + Aria is elsewhere, we can do whatever we want', I am no way thinking anything about Aria being in danger, despite that it was hinted at by Aria's mother. It wasn't like his H-mode(i'm tired of typing "Hysteria") was triggered by a desire to protect Aria either, so it kind of came as a shock to me when he instantly got up and left.

'doggietron'

I had a feeling the gifs might be too fast. They were originally timed for my Firefox install, which I'm just about fed up with that browser after I see it was what slowed down my blog too.

I'll re-time the gifs in a few hours, right now it's past midnight and I'm playing catch-up with emails and such after the ridiculous downtime my wireless carrier has been having lately.

Can't and Not Allowed are really 2 different things but Butei's "can't really kill" because if they kill someone. They will not be treated as butei anymore and more like murderers and be arrested or be turn into criminal.

That's the world of mercenary or butei. If the people want to catch someone be dead or alive. They will send in the police and if they want it dead they will send specialist and if they want it alive. They will send in a butei.

Just like what happen to Kinji's brother. Death is not tolerated in butei works. All the deaths will be blamed onto you so killing the enemy and death from your side are both things a butei mustn't allow.

That's definitely a pretty rigid system they have to work under. Though I suppose the allowance to carry all those weapons are just tied into those limitations. Would still make things pretty tough since if a criminal is crazy enough to make a suicide run betting on those regulations being followed it'd be trickier to stop them. Would have to be good enough to disable their ability to escape while not giving any fatal injuries.

I have to comment on this because I've seen a lot of people get this wrong. Riko is not acting yandere here. She is acting kind of yangire. There is a difference between the two.

Butei get away with a lot of stuff so there has to be some balance from the side of the government and normal citizens.

Also yeah killing Riko won't prove there was a real Butei Killer and get Aria's mother trial put into question.

Riko awakened the masochist in me. I think her similarity to Kyoko from Korezom is amazing... sugoi! She's just amazing, and a quadra as well. She must be a pro at cosplaying if she can disguie herself like that. Bunny would suit her. Still, I miss Shirayuki. Now that I've seen what a Butei is capable of I would be delighted to see what Shiryauki can do with her katana in dark aura mode. Anyway, good stuff...

woah what a development in plot. Riko is a descendent of Lupin the thief and Aria is a descendent of Holmes. Aria said Kinji was her slave what she meant was partner, as Sherlock and Watson. This plot kinda reminds me of Milky Holmes but with action. Riko mention that Holmes and Lupin both were equal, and Aria is Quadra so Riko being Quadra also isn't a surprise.

Spoiler for I made a skin of Aria, what do you think?:
