Dansai Bunri no Crime Edge episode 13

So the anime from this spring are ending again, huh? I have my doubts about some of them, but I’m generally glad by how Dansai Bunri no Crime Edge ended. The cliff-hanger was pretty good and there was an amusing little twist at the end. It’s funny how this show gets another season and other shows, better shows, don’t.

[Anime-Koi] Dansai Bunri no Crime Edge - 13 END [h264-720p][564E6E68].mkv_snapshot_11.10_[2013.06.27_22.44.15]It was kind of hard to accept that Emily, after all that Kiri and Iwai went through, joined the family as though nothing had ever happened. She, although still scared of Kiri and his messed up abilities, accepted Iwai right away and started treating her as though she was a sister whom she has known since birth. It was a strange turn of events and I’m sure not everyone can agree with what happened.

The hardest thing to accept is that it ended with them taking a bath. I’m sure all die-hard perverts out there loved the sight of two loli’s bathing together, but I rather would’ve seen something else, something more exciting and interesting. The story did not get any better from having seen that scene, not one bit.

[Anime-Koi] Dansai Bunri no Crime Edge - 13 END [h264-720p][564E6E68].mkv_snapshot_17.44_[2013.06.27_22.44.42]I’m just glad it ended with Kiri. We can all expect that sex will once again play a significant role in the next season, so prepare yourself. I’m kind of getting my head around the fact that Violet approached Kiri in the hospital. She is obviously an enemy of his and she actually admitted that Emily, like several others, was a man-made murderer. She doesn’t carry the blood of a famous murderer, she was simply trained to become one. That in itself was hard to take in, although it wasn’t that unexpected, but then Violet actually had the audacity to steal Kiri’s first kiss. Things suddenly became a lot more complicated. It makes you wonder about what’ll happen in season two, even though the show in itself wasn’t anything special. Either way; thank you for giving us a decent ending!

Dansai Bunri no Crime Edge episode 12

My oh my… This episode turned out a lot better than I had expected. I was really expecting another one-sided fight between Kiri and that loli. Too bad, I was really looking forward to seeing Kiri getting his ass handed to him again.

[Anime-Koi] Dansai Bunri no Crime Edge - 12 [h264-720p][3098FF6E].mkv_snapshot_01.30_[2013.06.20_22.41.25]So yeah, it was quite strange to see Kiri break character. He was the aggressor in all of this, which is something that doesn’t really suit his personality. I would even go as far as to call it an act of desperation. Maybe he was desperate to end things, hoping to save Iwai-chan from any unnecessary grief or something like that.

I believed it even more when I saw him lose. He thought he had a terrain advantage because he could hide behind tries, but that never stopped Emily from cutting him apart. One second she was right in front of him and the other she was gone, hiding somewhere on the branch of a tree, waiting to strike when the moment is right. She was the one with the field advantage (if anyone at all).

[Anime-Koi] Dansai Bunri no Crime Edge - 12 [h264-720p][3098FF6E].mkv_snapshot_17.14_[2013.06.20_22.42.53]The only thing I would’ve changed was the way Kiri gained power. Rather, he lost consciousness and the “killer within” (for lack of better words) awoke inside of him, turning him into a wild, mindless beast that tears into its victims. Sorry if this doesn’t sound very convincing, but I could never get used to seeing him like that.

I must admit though that I like the fact that his ability isn’t to just cut up his enemies. His ability is to inflict unbearable pain, which I think is just awesome. People don’t like pain, they don’t like to feel as though their limbs are being cut off. That is why his ability is so much worse than death, it messes with your mind. I love it! I hope I get to see more of it soon!

Dansai Bunri no Crime Edge episode 11

Oh, quite the cunning episode if you ask me. I have very little idea of what they were trying to accomplish with this episode, but it was certainly very amusing. I do wish they would stop with all those annoying scenes where characters suddenly get al ‘sexual’ when there’s nothing going on.

[Anime-Koi] Dansai Bunri no Crime Edge - 11 [h264-720p][ED5611BA].mkv_snapshot_03.33_[2013.06.13_23.39.38]So they decided to focus a bit more on Emily, huh? I’m okay with that. It was nice to see how she got to where she is today. Sadly, not much changed. She grew up in the streets, she had no friends and she fought to get food. That’s when that man came to get her, a man that got her off of the streets and turned her into a killer. You’d think that he wanted to do the right thing by giving a little girl a warm home (not unlike your average paedophile) and some new clothes. The image of a kind-hearted man was instantly shattered when he introduced her to her Killing Goods.

[Anime-Koi] Dansai Bunri no Crime Edge - 11 [h264-720p][ED5611BA].mkv_snapshot_10.31_[2013.06.13_23.39.59]It’s quite disappointing that they didn’t focus a bit more on that man. He’s a complete mystery right now. It seems that he, too, is somehow linked to Iwai. Perhaps Iwai was picked up by him as well when she was younger. It’s all very much possible at this point. In fact, anything is possible in Dansai Bunri no Crime Edge right now.

It’ll be interesting to see what happens next. Will Kiri get defeated again? Or will he somehow obtain his ancestor’s powers all of a sudden? I hope it’s not the latter, I hate it when things like that happen. There’s nothing more boring than a sudden power boost. Things like that need to be built up if you ask me.

Dansai Bunri no Crime Edge episode 10

This was the best episode ever… is what people with bad taste would probably say. I must say that I’m a little shocked by how this episode turned out. I have no idea why, but I feel ashamed and very perverted right now. Normally I’m very proud of being a pervert, but this time it’s different.

[Anime-Koi] Dansai Bunri no Crime Edge - 10 [h264-720p][9E517F6A].mkv_snapshot_05.16_[2013.06.06_23.09.39]It’s nice to know that Iwai and Kiri are finally starting things up. It’s been ten weeks now, so why not? Dansai Bunri no Crime Edge could certainly use a little bit of romance, no matter how innocent it may seem (at first). That is when I saw it; Iwai was getting out of bed, revealing her childish panties for all of us to see. Was I supposed to like that? Was I supposed to jump up at the sight of her panties? Something must’ve gone horribly wrong if that’s true, because I only feel ashamed at this point. I cannot believe they put panties of a grade schooler on Iwai. That may be cute in a way, but certainly not in the way that they portrayed it.

[Anime-Koi] Dansai Bunri no Crime Edge - 10 [h264-720p][9E517F6A].mkv_snapshot_20.54_[2013.06.06_23.11.14]I thought that that was the end of it. There have been very little to no panty flashes throughout the show, so why is it that this episode suddenly revolved around underwear? Why is it that this episode introduced yet another new character, a little girl to be specific, whose panties we’ve also seen, when things are already so hard to grasp as it is?

The thought of a little girl defeating Kiri in a one-on-one fight when he’s wielding his special scissors really messed things up. There’s really no way for him to train and get better at killing without actually killing people, so that’s not going to happen. I’ll bet it’s going to be another one of those sudden-power-increase-due-to-family-history-scenes. Man, this episode really left a bad taste in my mouth.

Dansai Bunri no Crime Edge episode 09

Huh? I should be happy… Why am I not happy? I’ve been looking forward to seeing that guy die after we discover his weakness. The time has finally come and yet I’m aggravated and slightly disappointed. How stupid am I?

[Anime-Koi] Dansai Bunri no Crime Edge - 09 [h264-720p][EA66B7E6].mkv_snapshot_06.56_[2013.05.30_23.38.22]So Kiri didn’t end up dying after all, as was already shown in last week’s preview (stupid move, Japan). It would’ve been better if that part remained a mystery, although it would’ve been predictable nonetheless. It’s safe to say that Kiri won’t die in this story at all. I guess he’s too important at this point.

So Seigi finally died, how quaint… Why did he have to die by the hands of some unknown character? Why is it that that blonde has so much control and acts as though she owns both him and Kiri? That’s what’s so aggravating. I’m bad with characters like those to begin with, but to actually continue watching that was pretty difficult.

[Anime-Koi] Dansai Bunri no Crime Edge - 09 [h264-720p][EA66B7E6].mkv_snapshot_20.20_[2013.05.30_23.39.16]I’m just happy that I saw a few of Seigi’s weaknesses. You see, he has to open his book, flip a page or two and speak a few words before his Killing Goods actually do something. That would mean that you’d have a small window of opportunity to take him down before that noose takes you up. A bullet to the brain should suffice, wouldn’t you agree?

I’m also happy about the fact that Kiri and Iwai are finally starting to get more serious about one another. Their relationship is slowly improving. It won’t be long before that childish crush of theirs turns into something more, because I’m kind of getting tired of watching that same old I’m-too-shy-to-be-aggressive-crap. Time to open up a can of love!

Dansai Bunri no Crime Edge episode 08

I couldn’t stop myself from sighing throughout this episode. It was like warning a kid no to put his finger in an angry pit bull’s ass, only to see him do it anyway. The dog is going to kill you if you do something like that, of course.

[Anime-Koi] Dansai Bunri no Crime Edge - 08 [h264-720p][7343F03A].mkv_snapshot_04.46_[2013.05.23_21.43.40]It’s a strange comparison, but I could help it. I knew from the very beginning that it could only be trouble for Iwai and Kiri if they went to that party. They knew it, I’m also pretty sure they were warned, yet they went anyway and they faced the consequences. Sometimes it’s better to say no and leave than to try and fail.

The one thing that confused me the most is how composed Iwai and Kiri were when they saw that ridiculous play about Iwai’s life. Anyone would’ve gotten angry if they were being made fun of by a bunch of unknown people, and that is why I was confused when both Iwai and Kiri didn’t even look angry or upset.

[Anime-Koi] Dansai Bunri no Crime Edge - 08 [h264-720p][7343F03A].mkv_snapshot_13.50_[2013.05.23_21.44.05]It even got to the point where they themselves were called out on stage for everyone’s amusement. I knew it would go wrong, I knew Seigi couldn’t be far away and I knew that Iwai would only get in the way again. It’s quite rude of me to say, but Iwai really is useless when it comes to things like these. She’s simply too weak to do anything.

I have no idea what else to say right now. I’m pretty bummed out about Seigi’s abilities. They seem overpowered. Or maybe it’s Kiri that’s just too weak and inexperienced? Killing Goods cannot be destroyed, we know that, but that noose around Kiri’s neck shouldn’t fall under that? Kiri should be able to cut that noose, yet he swung around like a mad man on crack, hoping he might land a lucky hit… So strange…

Dansai Bunri no Crime Edge episode 07

Huh, what? Where the hell did this episode come from? I got to say that this week’s episode was really awkward and relieving at the same time. I got kind of tired of seeing the same thing anyway, but one of these episodes is enough.

[Asenshi] Dansai Bunri no Crime Edge - 07 [7F817D82].mkv_snapshot_01.49_[2013.05.16_22.50.30]The problem with this episode is that I had gotten used to seeing violence, perverted murderers and strange tools that could easily kill people. That is what I got used to, when suddenly I started watching another episode where all the characters suddenly wanted to peace, where they wanted nothing more than to befriend each other. That is really strange when I’ve seen watched six episodes with nothing but characters coming for Iwai’s life. It’s beyond that point where you simply need to get used to it, you know? It was simply awkward.

[Asenshi] Dansai Bunri no Crime Edge - 07 [7F817D82].mkv_snapshot_12.32_[2013.05.16_22.50.53]The one thing that excited me the most was when Kashiko and Kiri started to talk about how they met and whatnot. I got to be honest here; I wouldn’t mind if Kiri ended up dating Kashiko instead of Iwai. Iwai may be cuter and sweeter, but how far can one go with a girl like that? Kashiko seems a lot livelier and a little bit kinky (that’s right, I’m a pervert).

But, like with most viewers, I’m keeping my eye on the prize here. It’s far from over. It seems that Kiri is once again being set-up for some kind of Iwai-related trap, even though they made it very clear that there’s nothing to gain from killing Iwai. It’ll be interesting to see how Kiri will be tested from now on and by whom.

Dansai Bunri no Crime Edge episode 06

Okay, I already know my popularity won’t increase any further if I say this, but is it just me or is the story simply going in circles right now? You have a certain amount of characters, each character has a partner of some kind and they all want something from one another.

[Mezashite] Dansai Bunri no Crime Edge - 06 [609D1BF5].mkv_snapshot_08.46_[2013.05.09_23.55.56]This episode was strange like that. Character A managed to successfully manipulate Characters B and C into killing Characters D and E. We all know who’s who, but the question is why. Is Character A, Seigi, a character whose Killing Good allows him to kill murderers only by reading from his book, after which a noose appears around the target’s neck that stranglers him/her until he or she is dead (or passed out when it appears that he or she is not someone worthy of death (yet)). One would think that some (or more) of the characters are overpowered, but they all have their own weaknesses, I’m sure. That’s how these things work.

[Mezashite] Dansai Bunri no Crime Edge - 06 [609D1BF5].mkv_snapshot_10.09_[2013.05.09_23.56.03]First thing’s first; Seigi’s abilities are simply fascinating. His abilities are somewhat restricted, as he can only kill bad people. His target needs to be a murderer or his abilities won’t be effective. That sounds weak in a way, yet murderers can’t seem to escape his grasp. Take Kiri; he, too, was caught by Seigi’s noose, he had nowhere to go at that point. What happened? Kiri almost died at the hands (so to speak) of Seigi because he showed that he, much like his forefathers, has pretty much everything it takes to be a good murderer. Let’s focus on the fact that Kiri has a pair of scissors that could cut anything, doesn’t that mean that he could cut Seigi’s noose as well?

[Mezashite] Dansai Bunri no Crime Edge - 06 [609D1BF5].mkv_snapshot_18.07_[2013.05.09_23.56.32]Don’t get me wrong, I’m not unleashing a scissors-cuts-rope-discussion, as I would probably be dead already by the time that ends. I’m saying that everyone’s kill goods has a fatal flaw. Maybe Seigi’s flaw is that he needs to read from his book, or that he needs to focus at all times for his abilities to work. I mean, Kiri’s abilities blossom when he has Iwai to protect. Ruka’s Killing Good, a whip that allows her to control people, only works on certain people. People that have been whipped cannot be used to harm their loved ones, so that, in a way, is quite a big flaw in an otherwise great killing tool. She, if it weren’t for that one flaw, could create an entire army of loyal subjects and have them do her bidding.
