    Episode 1:

    "Roll up your skirt"... Azuma knows what she wants.
    Most of those girls are completely insane. Especially the girl with the silver hair... Do you have to swing that way to be an assassin?
    Furthermore how could Haru be oblivious to so much killing intent? It's not like those girls are trying to hide it... Makes me wonder what is behind her nice face... Forgiveness huh? I wonder.
    Well I am interested.

    PS: Hitsugi-chan...

    Re: Akuma no Riddle

    What I said about Blade & Soul, could be said also about Akuma no Riddle.
    Anyway my first impression of this show is positive and Haru is just to kind to be an assassin.
    I can't wait to see the romance between her and Azuma blooming, because, you know, there's a Yuri tag.

    Good first ep. A class of killer full of insane girls and there is a white sheep among all these wolves. I wonder what is Haru's mission, if she is not a killer herself.

    Not sure what to think, but I am definitely interested in what happens next. Seems like an interesting show.

    Episode 2:

    Wow Haru has many of scars... Probably from attempts to kill her. Her whole family getting slaughtered...
    Nice that Azuma "defected" And so a friendship... or maybe even more in the future... was born.
    We finally saw all of the girls from this class... This won't be an easy battle... Pretty sure Azuma won't kill anyone. I wonder what her secret is.

    Makes we wonder... IS there a curse? Or is that just a figure of speech?

    It's a figure of speech......at least I think it is.
    Anyway I really liked this episode, because Azuma, after all that has transpired, decided to side with Haru and protect her (yay for the Yuri flag. ) and all the girls in the black class have been introduced.
    I'm kinda looking forward to the battle royale that there will be soon in the school.

    Episode 3:

    Serial killer insurance... Now THAT is what I would call a lunatic.

    One question though... How do you become an assassin if you're as stupid as Azuma? How could she fall for that...? o__O

    Nio is the best character so far. Her accent is the best and she is the biggest mystery.

    But seriously Azumas naivety made me a bit angry... It is okay for Haru but Azuma...? Our little killer wasn't much better either... Just don't answer your phone... <.<
    Most of those girls don't have a dark aura surrounding them. So wo will target Haru next?

    Re: Akuma no Riddle

    Well, that's what you call a Psycho. LOL
    If she would have succeeded in her assassinations attempt, the world wouldn't have been te same. XD
    However, what I'm looking forward to right now is that Nio girl.....what did Takechi see under Nio's slashed clothes? She's really a mistery as of now....
    In any case I really liked this episode, but I do agree that Azume was too naive for beliving in Takechi's words. -__-
    Thinking about it, I wonder if Takechi has been killed or just incapacitated by Nio....

    Not quite the damsel in distress as you might be led to believe... kicking Takechi away such that the scissors cut the ropes. Seems like while she might be hoping for the best, she's prepared for the worst.

    Re: Akuma no Riddle

    So far, Tokaku is a bad bodyguard . If the killer had not that tendency to torture her victims, Ichinose would be already dead. With the same plan(simple tactic) I would have succeeded to kill her.

    Yes, she killed her family after all.

    I guess my question is whether she actually killed them with her own hands, or does she just blame herself for their deaths, seeing she's made comments about surviving this time without anybody else's help (sacrifice). Which, of course, may not bode well for Azuma getting involved considering Haru's history...

    From what I undestood, she didn't kill her family, but was saved by it from an unidentified murderer.
    That's why she said that she can't die, because her family sacrificed itself to save her...
