they have been doing one episode per chapter. If they keep it at that rate, we will see the conclusion of this arc in episode 6.

if they do adapt 2 novels then...episode 13 (or one of em) would be an OVA like last time?

I didn't really understand much of that. I know before hand that this show is difficult to watch raw, though wow it really is a challenge. I do now that the preview shot for episode six is pretty epic.

Episode review please.

Wait, is there enough material left in this story to fill an entire episode? It'll be weird and less satisfying in my opinion if they don't end it the way they did in the book, I loved that scene!

I assume they're directed at Japanese domestic viewers who record the broadcast and then upload them on the Net..... so no actual 'piracy' occurred, no bootlegging, etc. 'making available' doesn't seem to fly in most court cases. Even the 'copyright infringement' notion is edgy -- sounds a bit like someone complaining because their website was seen in a cache. The only part of the equation possibly 'losing money' is the cable channel who'd prefer a subscription.

And frankly, the little messages can STFU until they provide another way for me to view the broadcast prior to purchasing their DVDs and other merchandise.

Back on topic, as far as the series so far... I'm pretty satisfied with the adaptation from the books of this story arc. It is one of the more complex ones emotionally in regard to Lawrence and ホロ and how they assess their feelings about each other.

2 episodes without horo... i am at my limit.
I liked this one even more than episode 4. Lawrence feelings were beautifully shown, for example when he was shocked to see horo standing next to amati, but quickly changed his expression so that amati wouldnt notice.

Moreover Deanna rules^^, i think she left a pretty superior mark (comparable to horo^^)
Mark´s little speech was great too.
conclusion: 10/10
i think next episode will be around 20/10 ^^

Looks like they included the scrolling message this time too.. I hope they realize that they are only encouraging those activities even more, since now people are going to want to obtain text-less copies...

This episode had better production value than the last.

The part where Bartose closes his eyes and the ambient background sounds get really loud and he hears Lawrence's breath. That was too cool.

Then the scene outside Deanna's door where the clouds move out from in front of the moon and the whole scene becomes moonlit.

Bleh, what a sausage fest this episode was. I didn't realize how much I took Horo's charm and presence for granted until I finished watching this one. Aside from that, it turns out Lawrence would be pretty bad at playing poker contrary to what I previously assumed. Hopefully he can get his composure together by the next episode. It's just too pitiful seeing him like this. Anyways, 7/10, needed moar Horo...

Oh my god... I love Horo, but she's seriously driving me nuts. If I were Lawrence, I'd have left her by now (my personal opinion).
