Kure-nai 07: How not to go into hiding

“Even I could find me”

1. Don’t change your name

You went through all that trouble to escape; now you risk getting caught because you’re too lazy change your name? This is the same shit they pulled in Seirei no Moribito. At least Balsa made up some excuse about nobody believing she’d still be alive. Sure. Hey, check out that insanely hot spearswoman with a once-in-a-generation talent for kicking ass in every way imaginable. Is that Balsa? Couldn’t be, I heard she’s dead. Wait, did that kid just call her Balsa? Eh, I’m sure it’s just a coincidence.

Besides, your name probably sucks. This is the perfect opportunity to give yourself that badass moniker you’ve always dreamed of, like Dick Masterson.

2. Don’t change your appearance

How the hell is a girl with that distinct purple hairstyle supposed to blend in with the general public? The fact that she doesn’t stand out in the middle of Tokyo just reinforces the stereotype that all Asians look the same. Cut her hair. Dye it. Give her a ponytail. Do something.

3. Walk around aimlessly in public

I’m pretty sure they didn’t even leave town, or at least the general vicinity. This story makes no sense. I can’t believe a man wrote it.


WikiHow has an shitty guide for How to Go into Hiding.

    Overlook Shinkurou’s stupidity in not giving Murasaki a disguise of some sort, and we have ourselves an awesome anime, right?

    Because kure-nai is awesome. Say it with me, kure-nai is fucking awesome.

  2. keke says:

    Want a good anime? Watch Jigoku Shoujo. A) It has a badass girl who takes evil people to hell by request (voiced by mamiko noto) B) the poor bastard who made the request gets a one way ticket to hell aswell when he/she dies C) the episodic stories are well written and arent repetitive.

    2 seasons and third will air this year. Watch it if you havent yet. Oh, and take the Ayu release instead of SHS, the video quality is a lot better.

    Nice post by the way Baka-Raptor :p

  3. Baka-Raptor says:

    @IcyStorm: Kure-nai is fucking awesome*

    @keke: I’m disappointed in you. I already reviewed Jigoku Shoujo. And Jigoku Shoujo Futakomori. You need to visit my archives. Actually, you shouldn’t even have to. You’re one of my old school fans, aren’t you?

    *when you ignore the plot

  4. keke says:

    I am very ashamed indeed, how could I have forgotten? Haven’t checked your archives since I read them when you posted them. I was wondering why the name seemed familiar when I stumbled upon it in anidb.

    The two seasons will be ready by today, so I can get watching^^ I just finished watching the first few episodes and its totally awesome. Who cares about repetition when its about real human emotions, you can’t get bored of that.

    But a thing that bothers me, that thing should have an age limit, why let 11 year olds’ use it when they cant comperehend something like hell.

    “Pull the string and when you die, you are going to hell as well” – “hell? mm, ok”

    The soundtrack is damn good, has a very higurashi vibe in it though, but it fits the theme.

  5. Shin says:

    Hey, I talk about clothes with the gays too.

  6. Shin says:

    I mean guys.

    I see my problem now.

  7. Lelangir says:

    – kure-nai is fucking awesome (plots in general….not paying attention)

  8. Nagato says:

    Caring about plots? In MY anime? Nonsense.

  9. otou-san says:

    right, right. anime. the medium that brought us the LeDouche Brittaniamatic Plot-Hole Generator 5000. Kure-nai is actually awesome, though.

  10. digitalboy says:

    Who needs plot? Anime never has a good plot. Focus on the fuckwin

  11. Viktor Berg says:


    Except for FMA. But that’s an exception.

  12. Teeif says:

    Everyone knows that if Kurenai was realistic, Murasaki would have been vaginally explored agaist her will multiple times already. She’s a Loli AND a Miko… in JAPAN!?

    My proof is the current Megami poster of Murasaki; it is a bit unsettling to say the least!

  13. Baka-Raptor says:

    @Shin: I’m going to pretend you didn’t do that on purpose because it’s funnier that way.

    @Viktor: Agreed.

    @Lelangir, Nagato, otou-san, digitalboy, & Teeif: You realize this is going to result in some sort of revenge post, don’t you?

  14. digitalboy says:

    Don’t fall for this trap dude. If you try to make a post in the defense of anime’s plot, the voices of dissent shall only grow. Then again, with the chance of it being a multi-blog event, go for it.

  15. Teeif says:

    I am happy with that, I’ve made improvements to the defenses since Jurassic Park… and you’re not even a clever-raptor!

  16. Baka-Raptor says:

    @Teeif: Don’t be fooled – Baka-Raptor is just a name. Just like TeeifyoukeepthisupI’llwritethemosthatefulreviewofKurenaiever is just a name. Doesn’t mean anything.

  17. korosora says:

    Kure-nai is quite disappointing.
    It shines at moments and yet. :I


    @TeeifyoukeepthisupI’llwritethemosthatefulreviewofKurenaiever: You have your goal in life.

    man continue with good work…. i hv liked the anime, but the end was a crap… but its your opinion, i dont know why people are saying craps like “go to hell, awesome blah blah”.

  27. Gersen says:

    I finished watching this piece of shit today. I realize this is very old, but anyways: she wasn’t supposed to be hiding. The woman that took her out said that she was just following her dead mother’s wishes: to let her see the outside world and know love. After that it was ok if she went back to her prison to be raped by his brothers forever.
