For the first time in, oh, weeks, I actually bothered to watch the livestream. Given it was a livestream A) it therefore had a small and crappy image, and B) I don't speak Japanese, I'll save thoughts on the episode until I see it in a version that is both decent and I understand fully.
That said, Ling was brilliant.
Oh, and for Teh Flist's viewing pleasure, I can link you to the New OP and the new ED. I'm not quite as in love with the OP as I was with "Again", but it's full of pretty and foreshadowing. (I am also now trying to work out at what point the next OP will come).
Though I do still want both those songs for my auditory pleasure.
