Synopsis

The protagonist, Masaru, has just inherited a big fortune after the death of his father. However, people are trying to get their hands on it by any means necessary, even if it means killing him. Narumi helps Masaru from being kidnapped after fighting strange figures. He finds out that they're not humans, but wooden puppets with amazing strength. After a hard fight, Narumi is forced to admit that he's no opponent for them; and just when he starts to think that Masaru will be captured, Shirogane, Masaru's watcher arrives from France with a weapon, the puppet Arlequin. Here begins the story of Karakuri Circus.

Great OST: Check
Shirogane being one of the sexiest girls of the season: Check

Apart from that, confusing first episode. Arlequin looks rather damaged so I guess it gets upgraded along the way.
Not much else to talk about... What kind of disease kills you if people don't laugh for you? Just watch a youtube video of laughing people?

This reminds me of D Gray Man due to the setting.

Good OP, ED, OST, entertaining episode.

I know the manga is from the same author, but with Koyama voicing Narumi, his attitude etc. You can't help but think about Tora.

Shirogane is not only hot. She is cute! :wtf

I really like the main trio. Good episode. It was fun too, Narumi's disease is incredibly annoying.

Could Shirogane please change her outfit? This is way too sexy and I can't concentrate on the plot with those curves and PLOT in plain view.

I agree with Arjuna though. In a way this also reminds me of D.Gray-Man.

Narumi X Shirigane ship growing

Also a character development for Masaru.

His father is setting some real mystery.Why Masaru as a bait?I feel some mystery is there.

And i also feel the entire assassin clan will be now Masaru's ally.

Shirogane is the best girl of the season! :wtf

Masaru turned into a badass in a few seconds. Great episode.

You need the kid's approval to be adopted? I didn't know this.

Masaru, you keep on smiling. You can cry. You can clench your teeth. But other than that, you keep on smiling.

If you’re ever feeling lost, think with your heart and decide what you should do and when you realize that it’s time to smile, don’t cry.”


so cute ♥

Ffs Narumi. This isn't what Masaru meant with lending him a hand.
After seeing the key visual, not much of a shocker though. As you can see him wearing some sort of metal arm.

PS: Ffs Shirogane...Now she is incredibly cute as well...

How did that arm stay like this though? Is it a Chinese martial arts technique? :D

Masaru is some kind of super genius. Smart, has apparently monstrous strength, can copy puppeeter's moves...

According to some Manga readers they skipped the fact that he has a perfect memory, so he can copy anything he has seen once.

Great episode.

Shirogane is quickly becoming one of my favourites.

Narumi lost his hand, pretty sure he will get that metal razor hand.

That last scene was truly shocking, but I'm pretty sure that Kato is still alive and that will come back with a mechanical arm, I can feel it.

Just caught up on this.

Narumi X Shirogane is justice. That is all I have to say.

Shirogane is just too good! :wub

I am liking the beginning of this new arc. I would have liked to see Masaru retaliate a little, but showing strength without violence is better in the end.

The lucky bastard!!! :cussing

Shirogane's gymnastics demonstration may have been physiologically improbable but somehow that just made it better.:nosebleed

Though I feel like we need Narumi back soon. This episode was great and all but there was still a piece missing that needs to be there.

The lucky bastard!!! :cussing
Sometimes you just have to respect the better man.:amuse
