Show Spoiler ▼
I really would love to see a good animated adaptation of the manga, but I have my doubts if the current anime is ever going to get there, and even if it does, the question remains if there will be too much edited out in terms of violence or religious imagery. Anyway, I’m going to give the anime four or five more episodes to see if there are any signs they’ll be returning to the manga story, and if it doesn’t look promising, then there’s a good chance I’ll be dropping the show by the end of this season.
-Drills were chosen because boys like drills in Japan.
-Because of the negative reaction to episode four, they won’t be trying stylistic changes like that again.
-Episode six was edited because it was airing early in the morning in Japan. The DVD will have the full version, which might feature what they originally had in mind: Kamina peeking at the girls in the hot springs.
-The reason humans live underground will be explained in episode 16.
-They are currently up to recording episode 21.
-Yoko may or may not be 14 years old, but time underground may be measured differently.
