「攻め来たるは・・・」 (Semekitaru wa…)
“The One who Comes Attacking is…”
I didn’t expect to see Suou (Sendai Eri) again, but she sure made an immediate impact, snapping back at Utao’s cold behavior toward her goodhearted head and cheek rubbing. The latter made wonder if the series is intentionally trying to make Utao come off as a pet of sorts, especially with all the squeamish noises that Fukuen Misato was making. Along with the noticeable shift toward the lighthearted aspect in the first half, they sure made it plainly obvious that Utao’s completely infatuated with Kyouhei and dangerously close to brotherly complex-like levels. Not like it wasn’t apparent already, but if there was any doubt from the first two episodes, there shouldn’t be anymore.
Of course, getting confirmation wasn’t all for naught due to the cute factor, much like showing how Aki escaped added to the gore factor. With Aki back in the picture, there was a stark change in tension during the latter half, and one that I rather enjoyed after an episode and a half of the goofier side of things. Thus far, Aki’s proven to be a rather intriguing character, killing everyone who rubs him the wrong way except Kyouhei. His reasons for doing so still aren’t all that clear, but he did allude to how Kyouhei should’ve walked the same twisted path that he did, supposedly after the massacre that we still see regular flashbacks about. I feel like they’re overusing that scene, since I’m sure everyone gets the foreshadowing by now; however, this time it did suggest that Kyouhei was in on whatever happened back then and didn’t simply witness Aki killing everyone. The difference appears to be that Kyouhei tried to stop it, whereas Aki basked in it. Whatever the case, I gather we’re not going to be divulged the details until Kyouhei’s ready to someone else — likely Hibino — about it.
In the meantime, Hyuuga Koushirou’s (Murase Katsuki) arrival came with on unexpected development — Aki running away from him. Kyouhei’s childhood friend has done a pretty impeccable job of coming off as a heartless killer, so he doesn’t exactly have the type of personality I would expect to run away from anyone, even if they are a pain to deal with. However, I do like the implication that Aki isn’t the most powerful Seki of the village and simply can’t be restrained, since it adds some extra depth and complexity to his character. i.e. He’s dangerous because he’s calculating and manipulative, not because he’s all-powerful. Granted, he was up against the mysterious Hyuuga Kirio (Kobayashi Yumiko) as well, whom some people might remember from the season preview is described as a young boy that looks just like Utao. I’ll let you guys come up with your own speculations about that, but suffice to say, writers don’t point stuff like that out because it’s a mere coincidence. Let’s not forgot that they’re members of the village’s two big families either.
With all of that going on, they somehow managed to slip Kuuko back into the picture as well. I figured she’d make an appearance when I heard Sawashiro Miyuki voice the boy who saw Utao flipping cars out of the ocean. Bump into Aki and haul his ass away to interrogate him about the village’s secrets though? I can’t say I saw that coming. I suspected Kuuko would get pulled into the loop before long, but not on the wrong side of the fence. Now she’s stripping Aki down and hogtying him up, which I imagine will lead to an interesting dynamic between them. Interesting for me anyway. Absolute nightmare for Kyouhei and Hibino.
* That was a pretty long omake this week with a hyper Utao biting Kukuri. Fukuen Misato’s really pulling out all the stops with this role it seems. Maybe she’s taking a page out of Utao’s book and loading up on sugar by eating a lot of cake.
– breast still disturbingly big…
– evul twin still no show… except in the end…
– omake becomes part of the anime
– breast the size of melons
haha, the different is SO BIG
I wouldn’t say that Utao is completely smitten with her brother. I just think that she’s protective of him. Anyways, Utao was adorable this episode.
I kinda feel like they’re really milking that scene of Aki killing everyone. It’s the third episode and they’re still showing it. Also, that sword that the two men brought with them in the trunk better have some sort of significance. Because really, who would bring a sword to gunfight/giant robot battle?
u got a problem with melons?
Will it kill you if I do?
who let this guy out of the wolf rain set….
and lol kukuri fishing out a car…
It somewhat boggles my mind why some people dislike big breasted girls so in anime.
Do you react the same way when you see a big breasted girl in real life as well?
I guess it disturbs the lolicons that not all girls are underdeveloped.
lol @KingOfMelons for wolf rain comment.
suddenly the WR op song was in my head. – do not want!
IKR? There’s big breasts, and then there’s these balloon bullet breasts that seem to defy gravity or use bras of steel. That chest is like, 99th percentile or close to.
Yes. I am a pedo IRL with no plan on marrying due to my sexual reference. PROBLEM?
I like big breasted girl (well, maybe not to the size of queen blade or eiken) I like big breasted girl in RL too. Nice to sleep at.
They need to defy gravity, otherwise it will be all saggy. Nobody like too much reality in anime.
I’m not a pedo but I like flat too. Louise is cute
Well, they are definitely gravity defying, but that isn’t quite the same as complaining about them being too large. And it’s not like they are to large that a bra couldn’t keep them up. That they look the same even without a bra is something you can’t complain about as we didn’t get to see that.
Personally I find her wasp thin waist a bigger break from reality as it’s difficult to get big boobs while on a starvation diet as they are mostly fat after all. The natural way to get a body like that would be to eat a lot while growing up and then diet away the waist while older, but I guess she is a bit young for that and the waist a bit too extreme.
Those are over sized even for melons, so over sized they look ugly rather than arousing.
it not arousing because she is clothed conservatively. Maybe when she go to onsen or swimming?
Miss Torpedo Boobs could do with less boobage. I’ve outgrown my ‘idiotically large == awesome’ stage some 14 years ago.
Yea, idiotically large == awesome is not cool. However since Hibino is in University and pretty smart. I’ll say she is intelligently large == super awesome. 🙂
What Do You Mean It’s Not Awesome
What!! Think about it, BIG BOOB + intelligent = Perfect women. Provided all other spec of her is checked out ok.
If you mean melon by breast, then no I have no problem with it. Except maybe I’m anxious for our onsen or swimsuit episode.
Not gonna happen yet because:
Show Spoiler ▼
The anime actually skipped a nude scene of Hibino and Utao this episode 😛
I have a lot of dirty thoughts going through my head with Aki looking all tied up next week. Could be a good or bad thing depend on your tastes XD. Wonder why Kyouhei is tearing up.
anyone want me to spoil what actually happened between kyouhie and aki during those flash backs based on the manga raws?
You don’t need to go to raws for that.
I suggest you don’t spoil people by mentioning the end of volume 8. 😛
They should keep teasing Utao lol… I swear, her expressions made this episode 2x enjoyable. Its just so cute and fun to look at. In one scene where Aki was standing, he looked so much like Accelerator.
Sorry for the double post Divine, just thought Id remind you that Suou did make a short appearance in ep.1.
Because Bro Fist isn’t just for dudes anymore.
This is the show I’m enjoying the most at the moment. I’m thinking the reason is Utao’s cuteness and Aki’s borderline insanity in contrast…
This and Stein’s Gate are the shows I’m most looking forward too every week. I’m not completely sold by the fights yet but the characters and the story make up for it.
Steins; Gate is one of my favorites (currently running) too, but I haven’t been keeping up with it; not from a lack of time, but purposefully because I hate suspense in shows with complex plots. (You forget important details over the one week wait for the next episode, and reverse analysis helps tie together complex plot points that may otherwise be confusing.) Instead I’m marathoning it once it’s over.
Not watching this, but this pic actually made me smile 🙂
I bet that kid will end up looking like Utao. I can just see him being like an evil twin or something.
Show Spoiler ▼
It’s still only episode 3 and they’re already removing some scenes from the manga. It’s a pity since some scenes were pretty cool/funny, Show Spoiler ▼
Well, they can always show them later, right? I mean, Aki’s escape was suposed to be shown in episode 1 and was simply postponed, so why can’t these scenes? But yeah, it disappoints me that we couldn’t see most of the fight =/
Yes, from what I could make out in the ending song’s preview, they are going to go into more depth with the Aki fight of this episode just like they did with Aki’s escape. I’m very interested in that style because it allows them to get to cliff hangers and then fill in any gaps. It reminds me of what Durarara! did with retelling stories from different character perspectives and I really liked that.
Those breasts are annoyingly large. And they are not being used for fanservice nor do they fit the tone of the show. It’s like they were forced in but when they were there all they were was akward.
yea, they should have a lingerie pillow fight. Not trying to be sarcastic but it my true feeling.
I am not a fan of Kuuko and quietly hope she learns not to mess with things bigger than her. A mutilated limb or two would suffice probably.
Your prayers WILL BE ANSWERED!
are they in Odaiba?
Wew, I want to watch it,, but alas my computer is broken down,, 🙁
I refuse to believe in Suou’s mangos. I refuse.
Utao won massive cool points with me the way she took on danger without even the slightest signs of fear. For someone her age, that was amazing. I hope to go in the medical field with that kinda confidence.
I love the previews: “Yaaah! Kukuri mo yorokonderu!”
I suddenly pity Aki… nobody deserves to be left at Kuuko’s mercy, no matter how heinous crimes had he comitted…
Kuuko is shipped with Aki in the LN so it’s ok… maybe…
i can’t wait until Kyouhei use a seiki. If he uses once 😐
I am really hoping for that too. If the opening is to be trusted, he will be controlling Kukuri again at some point. We’ll have to wait and see.
I just cannot get into this series, episode 1 was great but the previous two have screamed mediocrity and as a whole I think it’s just slightly boring, which is what most of this episode was. :\
ZOMG… The OM-NOM-NOM potential here is OVER 9000!!!
this is the real OMNOMNOM:
homage to Index?
I’m not sure if we’re looking at the same thing here.
I dropped aoi because of the abnormally big chests reveal. I’m really interested in this show, but… sigh.
Isn’t it rather shallow to judge a series based on the boobs size alone?
But with that size , won’t the cleavage be deep inste… oh wait you’re talking about something else. Never mind.
I thought BIG BREAST is a plus?
Brain’s Base is doing a great job with Kamisama Dolls. The sequence of the series of events is slightly different from the manga but I think it works better this way for the anime adaptation.
More full length images of Hibino please ;D
When I first saw the Kami-sama dolls episode 3, I notice an unusual number of people comment refer to Hibino breast one way or another. Spark a weird interest of fun, I decide to comment on each and everyone of them for some sort of cascading effect of people talking breast. Needless to say, I failed to make anyone make more comment of it. I will also give out my result out.
Before I began commenting there are 38 comment all together, 6 of them regarding to breast
End of project: 48 comment all together with 9 referring to breast.
That bring 18.75% of the comment is regarding to breast
If I was to include my own comment which is 10. And since all of them is discuss the breast.
That will bring up to a high 32.76% of the comment.
32.76% people comment on the breast as in of 23/07/11
Man, I got too much time.
