An individual with two abilities?
Channeling and pyrokinesis.
Interesting and challenging.
Looks like another addition to the special school.
Yusarin & a multiple personality disorder..
She sure is one scary girl!
Interesting episode.

I'm just preparing myself fully expecting the "overly cute adorable sister" to die, since she has that whole "character designed to die so we can make you cry buckets" that Key seems to be fond of.

Same here, only because she's the odd man out - no abilities, yet seemigly important to the plot at hand. So far all siblings had powers (Nao and her bro, Yusa and Misa), I fully expect her to show some later on in the show. Sacrificial imoutos are a thing, I guess.

Loud imoutos are not my dish, so I dun think I'll feel a thing when it's her time on the stage.

Everything still looks good, but I want my Kanie+Lelouch illegitimate child back.

Episode 3 was amusing and entertaining, though I agree with the rushed pacing and questionable dialogue criticisms. I might have more to write later, but I'll leave it at this for now.

That confession at the end came out of nowhere and weird as hell. Plus that Sho guy changed his mind so fast all the whole tear jerking (to him) lines he just said vanished into thin air.

Again Midori is the only character worth watching this time round.

My bet is they are coming from the fickleness of fiction, not reality, overabundant imagination and a specific disconnect from reality. I'm arguing this because in Charlotte's case it looks like it's state-sponsored.

I'm just going to pretend that the stupid evul scientist foundation doesn't exist. Episode 3 had been pretty enjoyable, the pacing didn't really bother me. I actually kind of like Nao. She acts like a normal girl, a rare feat in anime.
I have a bit of a difficult time understanding what it is you're trying to say here. But, if I understand correctly, you're believing that our criticism of real life scientists' integrity is a false accusation? If you want actual facts to prove that scientists have carried out unethical human experiments then I recommend looking up the research that was done on people with disability during WWII by Nazi scientists. When the government condones such acts, there are researchers who will embrace it. Like I said, we don't see it much nowadays due to Ethics Boards that regulate this body of practice. Scientists, like doctors, are mere humans. Not all have bad morals, obviously, but there are always a few rotten apples in every basket.

In the case of Charlotte, given that the Government in this universe is supporting this type of research, I'm not surprised that these special kids are in danger. But I do wonder about the intention of their daddy-long-legs.

Looks like the last member of their club has an interesting situation. She is technically two people and one of them is already dead.

Unless Misa moved onto heaven... Still, Yusa attending Hoshinoumi Academy is better than being exploited by shady producers!

This episode would've worked better if it focused on the Sho and Misa side of the story and then brought in Team Hoshinoumi at the end. Charlotte can direct a mean scene, but the overall product don't have any attitude.

lol at the 1000 hit combo as well. Nice job with a short and fun lolcap, reflective of Nao herself, really.

I hope Misa pops up here and there during the series; she cool....and hot....uh

And Ayumi's nosebleed moment was pretty funny. It's not every day you see these kinds of phenomena.

Episode 3: We hardly knew ye, quite literally

Episode 3 was pretty interesting. The first half was pretty typical slapstick stuff, and it was so uninspired in trying to be funny, it was pretty much forgettable. I think they really could have spent more time getting to the chase, because the 2nd half was actually pretty good and wasn't overly dramatic mainly because it happens so suddenly. Pacing still leaves much to be desired. Anyhow, we have yet another special person of the week, but this person is going to be a major player, with some rather hot abilities. And she's split personality, which fits the general profile of Key girls. So she'll fit in.

Note: I did not screencap most of the first half; it was so lame that I replaced it with screencaps from Sound Euphonium. I'm not going to talk about the idol part, because meh. They shouldn't be spoilery (they range up to episode 4-5 of that show, and are butchered out of context, but just in case..., I've split it into two parts. Also, yes, I'm aware this post is pretty rushed, but I think it goes along with the episode if it is!

Spoiler for S! E!:


And now back to Charlotte.... We finally find out that Yusa's channeling her dead sister, who's also insane. Oh joy.

Anyhow, short and sweet, but it didn't have to be. Overall, it'll be interesting enough to keep me watching for now.

Seriously those screencaps made my day, great job with them

Well, personally I found out I will keep watching this for Nao.

Also, they could tone down a little bit a loveliness of MC sister. He is so nice etc. this is even more unrealistic sci-fi than whole "evil scientists" case.

Fun episode. I hope Yusa gets more character development soon, because the little we saw of her made her seem rather... dim.

Also, I agree that something is obviously going to happen to Ayumi. However, I don't think she'll die. At least not easily. I expect her to be further evidence of the scientists that Nao keeps talking about, since as it is her brother is the only "proof" we've seen that they're a threat.

I have watched 3 episodes and well... its lack luster for me. The comedy isn't funny enough for me but still the sad/dramatic moment still hits. Like the flashback scene where the mother begs her son and daughter to attend the school, the experiment, and the scene in the hospital.

Episode 3 is nice and all but its pretty weak. Specially the confession of extra 1 character to Misa. Misa looks interesting and all but well, 2 personalities isn't that new and the contrast is too much for me to enjoy. But at least, Misa and Nao would complement each other.

I have nothing to say for the MC aside from lame and overconfident that he get himself caught easily in episode 1. He depends too much on his ability and decide to make it all perfect without back up plan which ended up with him being caught.

The teleporter guy is also lame.

The only nice one that made me watched it is Nao. She is interesting enough to make me stay.

This is 1 cour too right? Good. the characters aren't that many to made it all cramped up in 1 cour show.

I really enjoyed this episode. Once again the comedy was spot on for me.

Did anybody noticed how Yusa changes her hair color when she gets possessed?

Is there a chance that the school they are attending in is a big experiment too?

Like in index where the whole city is a experimental field of the scientist.

The student council gathers the ability users and the scientist provided the environment where they can live peacefully but secretly being stimulated to develop and use more their abilities.

Its a friendly environment but its only the front face of the school. For those who have useful abilities or disposable ones. Are being put secretly into experiment. Like Nao's brother.

Nao is just busy now with the gathering of the espers but she is just being used too and lied by the person she trust.
