Rollo confessed of having killed many people ever since he was a child using his Geass, being used as an assassination tool by Britannia. Since he never had any family before, his undercover operation as Lelouch’s brother seems doubtful to achieve but he is aware that he is doing it for the sake of his mission. More after the jump.

After telling Xingke his intention, Rollo got a phone call all of the sudden. To his surprise, the call was from Lelouch at school with Villetta there to confirm it. This leaves Rollo with no other choice but to turn back. More after the jump.
Alright, so here’s a quick look at episode 2 without going too deep into it. We are first given a recapped on [Spoilers] the powers of the shinra banshou after which we see kumohira pledging his loyalty to miharu. [En d spoiler]His response?
This is my motto.
Ok, so here’s nabari no.1. Let’s first take a look at the anime series’s name : Nabari no ou. A quick reference to ANN provides two alternative titles or should I just say, translated titles : Ruler of Nabari and 隠の王 (Japanese). The latter title in japanese using kanji has the words “隠” which is similar to a chinese word for ‘hidden’ and ‘王’ which is exactly the same as King/ruler in chinese. So we can conclude that Nabari no ou means the ‘King of the hidden’ (kingdom/ninjas etc.) OR it could mean ‘Hidden king’. I’m opting for the latter after watching the first episode. Summary and thoughts after the break.
edit 16/4/2009: Realised this post is still getting some traffic so I have to apologised for this lengthy summary full of spoilers. Moved the ‘Thoughts’ section to the front so you can bypass the summary without getting spoiled. Enjoy.
Alright, so nabari no ou’s OP, Crawl by VELTPUNCH has been released as a PV rip and there should be a mp3 rip out there right? That’s right,sringangel from livejournal has kindly agreed to allow us to use her
hotlink for the song which you can download here.
Go over to her site and give your thanks =D
Hm, was bored so I clicked the 1st thing I saw on her livejournal. (Below is a printscreen because the code misbehaved in wordpress, I’m so gonna spank wordpress.)
This makes me an excellent typist and thus, blogger. *Goes off to polish up Nabari Ep 1 review.
So episode 1 review is delayed once more. Outpops the release of a heavy weight group, Group C as compared to two relatively newbie groups, Group A and R (correct me if I’m wrong). I decided to be funky and run all three videos at the same time using VLC, MPC and WMP to compare their subtitles.
Here’s an update from ANN. According to the official statement released on the official website, the video leak is caused by human error or should I say, more of a technical complication. Bandai Channel, the network responsible for online distribution of the entire show, was testing for a new system that was supposed to prevent unauthorized video post of the show but instead accidentally uploaded the video of the last 6 minutes of episode 3 onto the internet. Despite the error caused, the episode 3 will be aired as usual at its usual time slot on Sunday.
“I don’t know what the button is for but it sure will do something.”
I’m glad that there won’t be any immediate changes to the show for now though after watching the video leak, it’s pretty much that I know the shockers of the next episode. Even so, that does not mean that there won’t be any changes of the future plot of the story. That will remain disclosed for now.
Despite of what the official announcement stated, I still do believe that the culprit responsible for this is none other than Zero. After what would happen in the last 6 minutes of episode 3, I bet Lelouch commanded the staff to leak the video so that the plot can be changed and his arse is saved. But then again, there’s the Emperor of Britannia need to worry about.
