    Re: BTOOOM!

    meh, not too fond of the first episode. I've only read the first few chapters but they skipped some details, made the protagonist look less like a jerk and instead made his mum appear more crazy. It's not too far of but I didn't like the little changes here and there + that marriage thing was never mentioned in the manga, at least not at that part.

    Just hoping they will stay close to the real thing, the changes are not that big but I dislike it when characters change, even if it's only slightly. Guess I will read the manga along to see how close they're adapting the series.

    Re: BTOOOM!

    I think that has a lot to do with the voice actor, I feel his voice is too soft even when he is mad.

    One thing I love though is the background music, it's jazzy!

    Re: BTOOOM!

    yeah, I couldn't resist and look also at second episode, but although at first I hoped it would be cloaser to manga, there were really quite a few small changes that make a story much more dramatic in manga than in anime...

    So I think they should definitly stay closer to the main story, why blood, murder, and rape were more or less shown with as few pictures as posibile, what I didn't like at all so far !!!

    Agreed on both. And damn, the anime made him look even more like Yagami Light

    I probably should tell you that that the episode will air "uncensored" too, at least that's what I heard from a few people who are watching the show. Dunno how much they will show there but I guess it probably will include some juicy stuff like the detached hand f.ex.

    The second episode was not too bad. I kind of feel sorry for the chick because of the decision to leave your friend while she was getting raped and then the friend hates you afterwards. And then you were almost raped by an obese virgin.

    The next episode looks promising, I just wanna see some more action

    I'm not saying I want to see those girls naked, because the presentation can be changed in a way you would not be able to see anything, but I at least wanted to see something like following when Himeko's friend was raped:
    Spoiler: hands on glass, that represents suffering (cruel thing like rape): show


    or some horrifying scenes, not just red stains from a first guy that was killed in first episode:
    Spoiler: disintegrating body from manga: show




    So uncensored or not I imagined myself it will be more of a horror, like Undercity's first chapter:
    http://www.mangapark.com/manga/Under-City/c1/6-1


    What I meant to say was that such cruel and shocking moments/scenes, that sended shivers down my spine in manga, were literally "cut out" in anime !!!
