Since Lykos without a doubt still has some emotions, it makes me wonder if there's something about her that's different from everyone else who gave up their hearts or if anyone who has done so can also regain their emotions over time.

Things sure escalated towards the end. Being a childhood friend who isn't the main girl means she was guaranteed to lose, but this was unexpected. I bet the council of elders is going to have a hard time explaining this to everyone on the mud whale.

I don't get the impression that Lykos is special, just that time away from the actual Lykos creature lets you keep your emotions. It was constantly feeding on them, and obviously it can't do that when the person is not there.

But wow. That ending made my jaw drop to the freakin ground. Also, that's the most beautiful locust swarm I'm ever likely to see . I'm loving this show.

I stumbled across this one when watching a compilation video of openings from the fall season. The animation and art style drew me in so I watched the first two episodes, and man, I was not disappointed. I love the setting and the magic they use.

I didn't really know anything about the series so the ending of episode 2 caught me off guard a little. Now I know I gotta have tissues on hand while watching future episodes.

Episode 2

So it turns out Lykos isn't that girl's real name, and it's the name of something that feeds off emotions. While there was an ominous vibe around her, Chakuro is determined to make her one of them. And thus everybody sees a bunch of locusts flying in the sky, quite a sight to behold. Lykos doesn't have a heart, but Chakuro and company are there to fix that, or at least give her life meaning. Just when things were getting good, they have come under attack as their sins have left them to face judgment, and Sami is one of those who gets shot. It will be interesting to see who those guys are as they have some bone to pick with these sinners. Things had been pretty chill, but now things are about to change in a big way as everybody realizes they got themselves in quite a big mess.

great show and great ep. I didn't expect the show to go that direction and I just love it already. overall the ep went around as much as I expected an attack on the whale island will go just harder to watch and had more death than I thought and better than I expected. overall good show and ep.
I really didn't expect sami to die (rip) and t made me feel.

I really can't believe more people aren't talking about or watching this show. I guess that's how strong this season really is?

Beautiful art design and color pallet. Ambient music and sound design. A very interesting story and almost post-apocalyptic sci-fi vibe mixed with magic.

Ep. 3 clearly set sup this show as not holding much back and giving more context to every episode from here on it feels.

Pink haired psycho looks like the MC of Neo Yokio with a He-Man hair cut.

What made this massacre even more messed up than it looked was the fact that all these people were raised in such a peaceful environment. They just stood there getting shot because they had no idea how to react to the violence. Reminds me of Psycho-Pass and other supposedly peaceful dyspotian shows where people are just so accustomed to peace that all it takes is a single act of violence to create mountains of bodies.

I bet more people would know this show even exists if CR had it and advertised it like they do for a dozen other shows airing this season. Thanks to Netflix there won't be any legal way to watch this outside of Japan for many months. The manga doesn't seem to really have any hype behind it either unlike Kakegurui or Fate/Apocrypha, which just being part of the Fate franchise is enough to attract attention. So basically we've got an unknown show that's harder to access than almost everything else currently airing.

Personally I believe Ouni is in the right during this genocide.

This episode was just brutal. And it made me wonder about the background for it all. Those on the Mud Whale keep being referred to as "sinners", both by the council and those attackers. Yet the irony of that label considering the violent attackers wanting a genocide and the non-violent Mud-Whalers makes the term ludicrous. So what was this "sin"? Considering that the attackers all seem to be willing servants to the Lykos, one might speculate that Mud-Whaler's "sin" was to object to serving the Lykos and escaping, which if the Lykos are the masters of all other people might have resulted them in being labeled sinners. But it is only a theory.

I like your theory and I was wondering if the Lykos does indeed feed on emotions and make dark skin tribe(Clown masks) emotionless why was fuchsia hair dude(see my avatar) scream with delight about killing someone crying was definitely showing emotions!

Episode 3

Quite a brutal episode that was with all of those clowns massacring everybody there. And all this happened largely because they picked up Lykos as those clown mask soldiers were after her. These Mud Whalers are labeled as sinners, which is what they use to justify their attack, and that sure was agonizing to see all that going down. Then to make things even more hellish, Ouni fights back. It turns out those guys in those clown masks are of the same race as Lykos. That sure was the big game changer that everything was leading up to.

So I think I'll wait until Netflix puts up this show before continuing with it.

The elders decide to sink Mudwhale and do massive suicide with everyone on the island. Why cant they discuss with the younger people not sure another mystery. How the Mudwhale can be sunk will be revealed next episode its interesting how some can sense the future and others must record the history of day to day activities or all the deaths and activities might be loss and disappear. More questions then answers another good eisode
