Considering that I've only begun watching it, I'm probably as lost as you are. As far as I know, each of the victims seem to have had some sort of troubling issue on their mind that grew worse each passing day. Then finally, when all hope seems lost, Lil Slugger comes and bashes them on the head and somehow... things start to get better for them... but I don't know... it's a confusing anime.

yes basically gemakai explained it all its about troubled ppl and how lil slugger helps by smashing their head with his golden bat...ppl think lil slugger is just an illusion and any other illusion based. There is this one episode where the police finally catch him and lil slugger claims he is a holy warrior or something but i dont think thats the real lil slugger tho dont know i have to watch it today

I thought S-CRY-Ed would've been good... but I got lost by the second episode (or it was possibly the 7th, who knows?) In either case, I decided not to record it much more.

I have only seen very few of the episodes, BUT, I do know that currenly the story is about two detectives, trying to capture "Little Slugger", who has attacked that girl, and then he attacked that reporter guy, and then the guy who had to steal for some other guy. The story is really complex and deep, and most of the time it's hard to understand. Later in the series, the Slugger is caught and claims that he's only "helping" those who are in need of help. But, It's really deep, and I kinda don't wanna say anything else to ruin it for others. Unless this is a spoiler site, then I can spill what i know.

i luv it....the show represents evrything that is eerie, funny, and a lil bit weird.....

YoshiToshi
07-18-2005, 05:22 AM
I think that the show is really graphic. Remember in the early episodes, when that weirdo-reporter-fat guy was talking with that girl? He was imitating the other women at the place the girl works, and she started to breath heavily, and they showed the guy's lips, eating that cherry, and alot of other stuff..... When I watched it, I was really confused. :confused:

YoshiToshi

Khari
07-18-2005, 08:02 AM

YoshiToshi
07-18-2005, 08:26 AM

Khari
07-18-2005, 08:39 AM

Demonhacker
07-20-2005, 11:02 PM
Im wondering about something...at the end of the Suicide episode...Im confused of what the meaning was of showing the condom vending machine was...Was it supposed to symbolize that they got aids or sumthin???
Also to anyone who was confused..

*Spoiler*
The Old Guy, The Tall Man, and the little girl were already dead...Thus they had no shadows and were unable to kill themselves again...It also explains seeing the guy who was hit by the train get off again...
*Spoiler*

Also you guys should wait for the next episode this saturday...I believe its the episode were they take all the old Japenese classic folk tales and put Shonen Bat....(Little Slugger) into them..

Khari
07-20-2005, 11:09 PM

Satoku

Dont Read Below if you dont want Spoilers....Im gonna explain what Shounen Bat (Lil' Slugger) actually is.

*Spoilers*

When Tsukiko was a child, she had a cute pet pink dog, named Maromi. One day walking it, she got careless and it was hit by a car, which drove off. What do you do when you're young and you're in trouble? You make up a story. Apparently she tells her father and police it was a boy in rollerblades with a bat. She believed her lie so much it became a reality, in her mind.

Fast foward present day. With a new cutsey dog in the form of her childhood pet, another part of her imagination was born from her. This being Shounen Bat. Much like the Maromi sensation sweeping the nation, the people of the nation began to all believe in this mysterious villian, Kozuka's real life form only pushing on the belief of the batter more.

As Shown in the Episode were The Older women talk of tales of Shounen bat...Everyone starts to believe that He is a real entity and in Form he grows bigger. Thus everyone starts *attacking* themselves...and it eventually leads to a riot in the city that nearly destroys everything..

SPOILER

so lil slugger was just an illusion/halucination

but i still dont understand the pink dog

Satoku
07-20-2005, 11:32 PM
Ive been knowing that
he comes out when people feel cornered or something like that...

Demonhacker
07-20-2005, 11:32 PM
The Pink Dog Maromi was Tsukiko's dog....but one day tsukiko daydreamed and let go of maromi's leash....Afraid that Tsukiko's Father would punish her for getting the dog killed...She made up the whole story of Shonen Bat A.K.A Lil' Slugger.
The Doll Maromi is modeled after her old dog.

So now that everyone knows of the Shonen Bat story... They use him to get as an excuse to get out of cornered predicament.

*Spoiler*
Youll see in a later episode about a company making an anime....but as they get closer and closer to the deadline each staff member dies one by one...supposedly its Shonen Bat..But really they all commited suicide.


Also The impersonater Shonen Bat...Did commit suicide....and when the detectives saw him that meant they were starting to believe the story....In the Happy Family (Suicide Episode) You find that the Impersonater was "Fox" the all knowing one in the ways of suicide...and he was gonna commit suicide anyway..

I've seen all of the episodes. I still don't get most of it. In the end though(spoiler) the one detective gets this techy style and has cool glasses. He gets a bat from the one girl's(first "victom", the one who designed the retarded dog" father. In the end little slugger and Miromi(stupid dog) are the same thing and are both created by that one girl(damn what's her name?) Some black ooze.....and little slugger......damn I'm get the biggest f***ing headache explaining this. They have that puppy that gets run over. ToT, sooooo sad. Can someone pick up where I left off? Owww!!!
