Episode 2

And now, Izzy enter's Seigi's daily life as she becomes an undercover transfer student seeing that her tattoo causes her to stop aging. Once again, there is some out-of-place comedy here, although with this episode being far less serious than the first that it's not as out-of-place as in the first episode. Anyway, Izzy is getting too close to him that Touko is suspicious of him, and as it turns out, Tom's house is normal above ground, but below ground is a secret training facility. And then Arya seizes the throne to set things into motion, all while Touko gets possessed. That was pretty silly the first half, but things get really serious there at the end.

Episode 2

Between Taboo-Tattoo and Re:Zero, it seems like there is a negative aura over the shows this season. Maybe it's because there isn't as many harem shows this time. I know in the comments on other shows there were a number of people commenting that they were trying to recover from this week's Re:Zero.

Remove more of the the comedy and this should would be better. Meanwhile, it looks like quite a bit happened this episode with the way things developed. Two tattoo users and we also got Blusey Flusey (seriously that name...) transferring.

I'm guessing they'll have to explain their powers better soon.

I like every facet about this show <.< , the MMA is just a sweet sweet icing on the cake.

Episode 2: Surprise Attack

I like this show. The action is great especially the way they choreograph the fights along with the cinematography. It meshes well in my opinion.

The comedy is something I had a gripe with last season with Bungou Stray Dogs. Didn't think it went well with the seriousness but when they are serious, they are serious and that's what matters. I enjoy the comedy.

Aww don't use Touka as your puppet you little blonde umbrella holding PoS. It's not the time for him to be lectured, she has to go buy some cabbages to break first XD.

I'm looking forward to the next episode since things are heating up with the Coup and some 1v1 battles to ensue. Also Bluesy Freusy is a cutie patootie.

Damn that ending. I'm really liking this show can't wait to see what happens next. It's not exactly something that's never been done before but it's being done very well here.

I really like everything from this show, but Seigi's childhood friend is quickly becoming the useless female who is only there for fan service like Orihime in Bleach and I hate this type of character so much. If she's not going to be useful to the story then I hope they kill her because if she lives and will only get jealous of Izzy and do nothing except trying to win Seigi then I'll drop this. And judging that scene with Izzy at the beginning, she's clearly there just for having a pair of big breasts in the show and nothing else.

Mob Psycho 100 will still have more priority to me on Mondays than Taboo Tatoo, but if this gets rid of the problem I mentioned earlier and manages to stay as good as it is or even improve a little bit, then I'll still watch this without a doubt.

I'm going to guess Bluesy is at least in her late 20s to 30s. Why? Stockings. When she stomps on protag-kun's neck while in his room she's wearing flesh coloured stockings. Not something your typical Japanese teen would wear, particularly with a long skirt. Definitely OL inspired.

Showing me this has me dropping it without even picking it up... This is probably all I have to look forward to when it comes to comedy, huh? Old and tired fanservice with huge boobed lolis.

I see given the premise of the show that people might consider it to be extremely cliche', but to my eyes it doesn't seem like it commits anywhere NEAR the crimes of other's like this that we've seen lately. They didn't even do the accidental boob grab - yes, they did do the intentional yuri boob grab, but that one isn't used nearly as often.

Really, so far I am feeling hopeful for this. The dialogue isn't terrible either and that's a good sign. Not that many things can make me stop watching a series like I did with Big Order - bad dialogue certainly can.

I wouldn't have minded if it had just lasted long enough for the "I'm jealous you're bigger than me" trope but instead it stretched into "I'm groping the heck out of you" territory.

I like this post very much. ^_^
Yeah, the "overbearing childhood friend with a secret crush who gets jealous too easy" is just the shittiest character trait. She's even worse in the manga, as I recall..... I'm trying to like this show in spite of it's genericness, but man that girl...... she just ruins things.
