Episode 4 was all about revenge. Revenge of the white censor fog! Revenge of the unit vs the main character. Heck for a bit I thought we was gonna see something rare. But it went half way. We learn the main character is out for revenge. The engineer wants revenge for her " new" job. Yes revenge is in the air!

While it did not add a lot of new things to the gene, it did do things well in this episode. An yes the hq guy from the mechs company must be akin to the devil with glasses from Log Horizon. He stole the episode.

3rd episode of the new edit Just to me felt like two episodes back to back. With no new animation that I could spot. Tho maybe some scenes were buffed an polished with more detail. Looks like the glare bit was toned down on the polish. Which is a good thing me thinks.

Hmm episode 4 went fan service um service. Can a show about police for trains have a beach episode? Yes! Yes it can. So this was the in joke fan service service beach episode. Yes the harem train has left the station.

Not sure where the wars are in the series. But do hope for some deeper story lines. It always worries me when a anime goes beach episode this early in its season. Regardless of the actual yearly season its in. Sure you can argue summer episodes it would make sense to have them front loaded... um so to speak.

3rd episode was pretty great. Seems those that follow the manga are fairly happy with the anime. An those like me who have not yet, but still enjoyed season 2 well enuff are happy as well.

After the tight rope part I thought the butler would LOL but he hid it well enuff with covered giggles.

@takashichea: I broke my watching the opening rule. So this opening is creative an does not spoil the story. Will anime learn from this? Probably not. But last intro that was creative with no spoilers that sticks in my mind is Cowboy Bebop into. :/ They really need to learn better or at least learn from the more popular shows that have a spoiler clean intro.

@LHWKnight: I agree episode 3 was light hearted fun. An poorly fitted swim trunks.

3rd was subtle an good. The subtle part is the color saturation for the episode changes with the good detective. How his past in Hiroshima as a second generation survivor shaped him. The color fade out from that point on about summer was a subtle touch.

Show now feels 10 miles deep. Great illustration style. Good animation. Fair amount of drama with a slow burn on the players history in this. Good stuff.

Number 4 was great. From set up to end you knew where it was going but the ride was well thought out enuff to see it threw. Predictability is not bad if it has story style to carry it along. An this episode did.

So this one put out that half breeds are hybrid stronger than full bloods. This sets up the main character to be over powered with in the story with out feeling cheep.

edit:

Some are griping about the broken cup piece cutting the main character. As a knife would not in a earlier episode. Its not a plot hole if the broken cup piece has some of the other ghouls blood on it as that is their weapons. Not a plot hole but it can look as one. Also some are saying now its off the manga rails to so its breaking off the plot path of the manga.

138 + 139 sets up the death wish wishing game. Such a use of wish an the offsets are amazing plot wise to me. Killia is much smarter than his family an after 139 I believe they know it now.

Episode 3 was pretty good. But what people are calling " the guitar walls" is the same line scene fade i was talking about, an hate. Well seems its not just me. Not sure who thought on their creative team that would be a good idea as a scene break. Its actually the only thing I really hate about the show. The guitar noise fade over it is starting to sound like nails on a chalk board to me.

Rest is pretty solid. Good world build with a decent animation style ( minus the guitar walls ). With happy go lucky crew an a story that seems deeper an connected to the 1st season.

Episode 1 was average. Nothing great. A few plot holes or at the very least character establishment problems. Aesthetica of a Rogue Hero main character had bravado that this main character seems to want to have but wavers. Long as it stays average even generic average I will watch to see if it gets over that. But yeah it feels like the grandchild of quite a few harem battle anime.

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.

3rd was not bad. But feels like the pace of now. And it feels more anti hero than hero now. Looking forward to see how they pace the plot. But one kill a week will ruin the unpredictability.

3 was good. But it reminded me of this movie...

" Not bad for a bunch of kids huh?" This feels like a anime version of that.

16 was a great episode. A good fight for the build up. But we learn more what the main character is..

. Odd thing tho one site I visit people rarely comment on the anime unless its very popular ala Fairy Tail or Attack on Titian level stuff. But this anime gets comments alot. So its playing well in some corners of the world.

15 was start of a short arc looks like. But with this show its hard to tell. One of the things I like about it.

@takashichea: Romance goes with mystery shows more in anime I think. Their staples like bread of a good anime mystery show.

@DocHaus: Lucky for me I have more time than not for anime. Even hold over shows I'm always looking at new "old" shows seems. This one for me is fun an reminds me of days when me an my father would watch tv mystery shows an guess who done it. The crew of this returns have done a great job. An as it progresses it seems they have added more of the older music style an flair. Its not a reboot just a time update. Wish more older shows were done this way an not the reboot route.

Episode 16 was pretty good. No surprise who the pumpkin guy is tho. Also some of this story line reminds me of Days of Future past an the Bishop arc parts from X-men. Just kinda.

@takashichea: Hmm thanks for looking that up. Was thinking the manor burned down in season 2? Memory is not what it used to be :/ But if it did then that would explain the coment about the manor being rebuilt so fast in the 1st episode.

2nd episode was solid. Some are griping more now how the 1st episode gives away alot. Because manga pace was a then b then c . An the pilot put c before a. Knowing how things play out is not always a bad thing for a plot. It becomes who an why an how. Sure that takes the drama out of it. But since I never read the manga this works for me. An if you have read it then this will feel different.

Tho I will agree different is not a harbinger of good.
