You know, Zakuro's lips when she starts smiling during the blade transforming scene just rubs me the wrong way... it just doesn't look natural enough for me.

Maybe it's her spirit half that's bugging us. That 2nd side of her coin sure looks serious when she is.

Oh bugger, you just made me wonder what the other girls would look like when (if) they go solo.

So far this show is pretty interesting and I'll definitely watch the rest.

I love Hotaru's hair though...

That's the funny part -- this series is from a seinen publishing house (yeah, the art work is deceiving). Another fine example of why not to use genre labels in choosing one's entertainment material

A note on the names - they are names of things, and are actually very unusual. At that time, women tended to have shorter names like Chiyo, Fumi, Yoshi and such, usually 2 or 3 kana and often spelled in katakana. These are very "youkai-esque" names.

Zakuro is Pomegranate
Susukihotaru is "susuki (a type of grass) firefly"
Bonbori is a type of paper covered lantern
Houzuki is the Chinese Lantern plant

Ep 4 was just perfect. This is such a gorgeous series, visually and story-wise.

Ep 4 was great, keeps proving that this is my favorite series this season. I'm still loving the assorted youkai designs.

Ep4 was a really good episode. It's nice to focus on the other characters once in a while. Hotaru and Reiken make such a sweet couple. Totally love them!

This 4th episode was sure well handled.

So THAT explains why she sounded so familiar.

eps 4 is nicely done as well, this may turn out to be the best of the season

Mugi's story is touching, Riken and Susukihotaru are good combination, but clearly the main plot will be Zakuro-focused

Such a sweet episode <3

I have to agree they paired the the guys and the girls up very well. Susukihotaru and Rikuen make a wonderful couple, they're already in perfect symbiosis. I can't wait to see how the twins and Ganryuu's relationship will evolve. I'm also curious to find out what kind of powers they have.
