What has happened with this series? Originally, I was worried that this show would rush the plot after seeing the first 3 episodes quite a bit but that wasn’t the case here. I’ve looked back and forth between the episodes and what the light novel had, and there is not much of a change. I’ve enjoyed the animation, the music, and the characters, but we are left so much in the dark about Juugo’s father, the killer of Nanana, and so many areas of the original club that I have to wonder if they can cram all that in this adaptation. Also, is it just me or have the treasure hunting challenges been a bit lacking?

Here we had a bunch of development of Ikusaba. Plus the writers decided here to hint at Yun being more than what she appears to be. She knows about the ruins, and she seems to have a connection with Ikusaba that came out of the blue. With only 2 episodes left I cannot see this ending well at all. One has to wonder if this series could pick back up sometime next year, considering Noitamina has already announced their lineup for the rest of 2014 and one series going into winter 2015. Let us hope this show can redeem itself if even just a little bit for its final two episodes.

OVERALL IMPRESSION: 4/10
