This one could really go either way. I do like what we’ve seen of the setting so far, and the characters all seem interesting.
BUT— and this is a big but— the series this episode most reminds me of is Ookami Kakushi. Let’s hope the resemblance is only superficial.
As for establishing a creepy atmosphere— well, the classmates are all creepy, although not because of anything supernatural. I particularly liked the scene in the hospital. But Rei’s vague insinuations aren’t doing much for me. Neither are the random shots of dismembered dolls.
I’ll stick with this for now. I may end up blogging it too, depending on how the next episodes of Symphogear and Moretsu Pirates go. And on Inu x Boku. This season’s been pretty slim pickings… I may just give up and do funny screencaps of Milky Holmes.
