I watched episode 4 and it had some semblance of moving the plot going forward but didn't actually go anywhere hopefully this show picks up the pace soon the episodes are so formolatic so far goes more or less like past for the past 4 episodes

>Saya wakes up to go to school and has a short talk with her dad.
>Walks to school through oddly deserted town.
>Saya begins singing accopollo
>Encounter Strange dog on the way
>Arrives late to school which apparently only has 7 people in it
>Eats lunch outside with freinds
>Encounter mysterious emo guy and makes him eat something to cheer him up
>Walk back home and stop to eat some delicious Guimauve at the only cafe in town.
>Night Comes time to go kill some monsters
>Mission briefing with dad then transform to dark saya and go kill monsters.
>Defeat monster after a bit of a struggle
>Come home covered in blood

And some where in there through in a monologue by some mysterious narrator accompanied by random images. I'll keep watching as the comments on niconico make it fun to watch and the show isn't that bad fight scenes are well done the plot just needs to pick up.

I've already seen the first 4 episodes, and "Blood-C" really feels like a "Slice-of-Life" interpretation of the Blood Vampire series. I really do like the art-style of CLAMP showing up in their adaptation of Blood (the fight scenes so far are also fantastic)----but in terms of the structure of the episodes so far, it feels like two different shows that are lazily slapped together: the first half of each episode is a quiet "a day in the life" tale of a high school girl, and the second half abruptly transitions to an "action series." What would make Blood-C MUCH more interesting is if the series focused on exploring how Saya will react when both her "quiet" and "violent" worlds start to collide and intermingle

In terms of the overall story arc that's been trying to get developed during these past few episodes------I've read other works of CLAMP like Chobits and Tsubasa, and it seems like CLAMP's style of storytelling is to save the true "plot" of the series for the very end instead of stretching it out and building tension and anticipation throughout-----it feels like that is what they're also doing with Blood-C. As a result, the climaxes in CLAMP works are usually sloppy and feel like a runaway train (Tsubasa is a REALLY good example of this). I'm afraid that the same thing will happen to Blood-C as well.

Has anyone else noticed that the guy who talks about what makes up a person and how hard it is for a person to change and whatnot sounds exactly like the guy who runs the Café Guimauve. I also found his behavior rather suspicious in episode four... it's like his observing her.

as I said before, somethings very wrong here.

And as Greylurker said before me "There is a Lie here. A huge Trueman Show level lie."

Gotta agree with you.

My own theory is that Saya is really one of these 'Elder Bairns' and her dad isn't really her dad. and yeah most of the adults are in on this.

not sure where the dog fits in but in ep. 4 we're given the impression that no one else sees it. AND that it's observing/following her. rather than being a random local pooch so cute that she has to hug it.

her stream of conciousness singing seems at times to be hinting at something her concious mind is not yet aware of. And her meditative vision get's longer and clearer all the time. It started as a light ball, then a sweep of light, then a luminous suggestion of a sword, and finally now we get flashes of a large humanoid torso being cut by a sword swing.

The three guys whom Saya failed to rescue in this latest episode said some odd and incomplete things that could mean nothing OR could hint that some adults no more about saya than saya does.

Anyhow. yeah.... ep. 4 is the first real tear in the curtain we've all sensed dividing what we are told and what is hinted.

I see we agree on a couple of theories. I had not stated anything about most of the adults being in on it, but it makes sense.

What are your thoughts on the other item mentioned in my linked message?: That Saya was the one that killed the person she thinks is her mother.

I hadn't thought about it. but it makes sense. Though I was thinking more on the lines of the one Saya thinks of as her mother being a sword weilding killer herself. or perhaps a fiction. maybe her human mom is the truman sized lie?

Funny enough I don't think the other kids are in on it. And I think the boy she likes may prove to be her salavation when she realizes she's been decieved.

Guimave owner is starting to creep me out a bit to be honest. I'm starting to wonder whats in her coffee and or those pink cubes.

Remember when she brought friends and He had just run out and had to brew a fresh pot?

And her father doesn't Drink coffee?


It's all little circumstantial things that don't mean anything until you get properly paranoid. And Then of course, everything is suspected of hidden meaning.

this is why I'm still watching.

Episode 5 was excellent. The mystery of Saya deepens. She was awesome in her one fight of the episode too.

uh.... i don't like the main character's ADD/bipolar personality. Her clumsiness is fine, but there were so many times i imagined it would get better. Especially when she was going home and saw a CAT. I was beginning to see her as an interesting person who can think clearly. Then she completely turned me off with, "OOO, there's a CAT."*I'm happy again.* not expecting this anime to be interesting

I'm totally getting a Kyubey vibe from the cafe shop guy. Pleasant on the outside, but something ain't right there. The teacher/researcher clearly knows something about what's going on, but to what extent? She said she would do anything to learn what she wants to know. I'm betting she knows a secret about Saya and became a teacher (or was placed there) to monitor her. I'm still undecided on the dark haired mystery guy in her class though.
