HanaKana? Not surprised.

Kido is a pretty cool character though.

She has the best power though....She could literally take anyone in a fight, escape any situation, go into any girls' locker room. They made her too OP.

if she 'onehits' them all yes, she said something about that the effect breaks, once you touch somebody didn't she?(maybe i got it wrong)

I forgot the rule where it says she can't carry a knife. Or a gun. Or a frying pan.

Obviously parts of what is good and what isn't is based on subjectivity. Personally, i found the first two episodes interesting in the context that they presented decent ideas with that signature shaft style. Yeah the first episode did feel a bit like a Mono-clone but the second pulled hard away from that while setting up a more "Artistic" style. Each does well to introduce the two core characters (I assuming they are core considering they are at least the PoV characters for the first two episodes) and the stark contrast in styles from episode 1 to 2 is rather interesting to note; it gives the two PoV characters more "character" simply from the way the visuals were presented. Episode 1 shows Shintaro's loneliness but also has a large contrast to Momo's loneliness and though they are both lonely, you get a distinct different feeling from each episode.

This 3rd episode opened things up a bit more, giving the show a direction as well as successfully introducing more of the characters with out them feeling too one dimensional. It tied the other two together rather nicely and set things up to go from there. I think its a good way to start an anime; getting most of the characters out of the way before heavily focusing on the plot.

I read an anthology where she tried to go into the girl's change room(without using her eye power) all the girls looked at her and thought she was a (male)creeper

The problem is KagePro is a series with many main characters and if SHAFT is planning a one-cour without a second season then the first three episodes could have been condensed into two. Because of this pacing many conversations were dragged out but for some reason, a few important scenes were also cut out. If a second season was announced then I won't mind this pacing as much.

Hey Crunchyroll, next episode title should be Heat Haze Daze, not days
(common misconception, but it's been confirmed by Jin on so many occasions)

Those are some good points.

They did set the stage pretty much in the first two episodes and episode 3 really made things interesting and brought the show back on its feet. The first two episodes were pretty abstract and uninteresting, but maybe that's what they were going for? I just thought it wasn't a great way to present a series.

I actually really liked this episode. Better than last week's by a long shot. I like seeing everyone's powers, and when they were in the shopping center I said out loud, "Oh.....I see where they are going with this episode. Nice."

I did find it a bit convenient that Momo was suddenly able to control her powers with that much level of control, though.....

Really great episode that ties into the first one well. Hopefully this made the series better for people who haven't had contact with the source materials.

Real deal.

As long as it's not her physically touching them it seems fine. She hits that guy in the head with that thing Marie threw by accident and isn't seen.

She only had to stay out of sight of the people, her powers don't work without line of sight, so I think of it less of her controlling her powers and more of it being a well thought out plan with the distractions to keep everyone's focus off of Momo and Marie until they got into position.

Maybe I misread the subtitles, but it made it seem like she could actually like see everyone's line of sight, though. It just seems like she sprung new stuff on us is all....

Ep 3 definitely got me hooked onto this show now, the whole second perspective to the first episode was cool too

My favorite character has to be Ene.
Her face when asked to forget about the hidden folder on Shintarō's PC is priceless.

I'm glad the pace is picking up! Compared to all the derpy preview shots of him, Kano's looking pretty close to Shidu's art now.
Confirmed that their eyes actually turn red and can be photographed. Interesting. I always assumed it was sort of a power glow.
