Oh boy, the animation for the 3rd episode sucked big time. It was embarrassing. :(
Yeah I'm dropping this for a number of reasons. Rumors of a do over on the episode seem common now. Rumor goes this was not the quality they wanted an had to rush the animation. An parts of the story got changed etc. Meh. Not interested. Rumors or not its funny reading the comments on other sites.
Funny tho for all the talk of it not gonna be yaoi for them to blame the fill in animators seems fishy. Half the people in the comments ( other sites ) get mad for people dropping it because its not what they were told it was. Are the same people who last week telling people what the company line was that it was not gonna be yaoi. Cant have your cake an eat it to in this. While I understand some people like to make other uncomfortable. Cause its their thing. Does not excuse the rumors an lies.
Wonder now tho if the company was behind some of that because they got on PS vita now to http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2014-05-10/dramatical-murder-vita-fall-date-anime-visual-unveiled If 3rd is any indication on animation quality along they are in for some hurt. Many were dropping the show just on that aspect.
@takashichea: If you do let me know. I'd like to hear what you think. For me the game wasn't that interesting in the beginning, but as I played more the characters and each of their stories got me hooked. But I must admit that the so called main route, the one that comes after finishing with all the four guys' routes is my least favorite. The ending is pretty weird, even for this setting. However, it's most likely the anime will stick to that ending (minus the beach scene, unfortunately).
Since I've played the game, it's hard for me not to make comparisons between the original material and the adaptation, so please forgive my little rant here. I must say that my disappointment finally kicked with Koujaku's episode. I wasn't sure how the second half of the story would be adapted, but up to that point I was convinced that the anime writers would take a slightly more creative approach in combining all of the characters and their stories together. Instead they went with the laziest option, adapting each route one by one. OK, not the worst thing to do, but they should have spent at least two episodes per route. Everything is just so rushed and I am sure that even viewers who are not familiar with the game feel that way. Not to mention that they didn't really think of giving Koujaku something to do once Noiz shows up and goes on his little adventure with Aoba, and the same goes for both Koujaku and Noiz who are put out of commission once Clear shows up. It will be ridiculous if that keeps up when Mink shows up in the upcoming episode.
P.S. One of my favorite scenes in the game is when Clear finally takes off his mask in front of Aoba. It's such a sweet and touching scene and of course the anime cannot deliver in that respect. Not to mention the very sweet scene in the rain when Clear kisses Aoba, but understandably there just wasn't enough time to squeeze it all in one episode. Not that they would anyway.
