If you read other threads, you'd know why I haven't watched anime recently (hopefully to be rectified soon).
Can you please simply point out the major reason(s)? Thank you. I've been keeping reading many of your posts, but have skipped some.

Pandora Hearts anime is one of the worst ever created compared to its original manga. The only reason why I decided to read the manga after finishing its average quality TV anime 4 years ago is there were a lot of things I didn't understand from the anime. The whole manga was nothing more than any other manga in 2011, but it turned to an extraordinary one since the middle of 2012. The mangaka Jun Mochizuki is a great author. She is talented in plot setting and character making imo, and is so hardworking (see spoiler). I am one of her fans who is truly touched by her work Pandora Hearts. Furthermore, it reached its 100th chapter last months, and there are at most 3-4 chapters to go as being said, so it's almost the end!
She keeps this drawing style for more than 5 yearsShow

My answerShow
This Echo we know well was not in 100 years ago's Sablier. Every Echo personality has a time limit. Of course Noise was in Sablier, but at that time it was another Echo inside her. Chapter 97 will explain the Noise & Echo relationship clearly.

The chain is Dledee. Dledee is Noise's chain. Dledee has the power to create "new personality", which is called Dledum, inside person's body. Dledee can control that person via manipulating that newly created personality Dledum. This is exactly how Dledee controlled Gil in episode 1. You can think Dledee is the master, while Dledum is the doll. But 100 years ago, Noise gave Dledum a new name. She called Dledum "Echo". She said Dledum (another personality) was like an echo inside her. Chapter 97 will make this clear. I know this is so complicated, which is why many people don't want to read Pandora Hearts. Haha

I think I'm getting it now but, I just read Ch.91 and Oz called Echo/Noise Zwei. is Zwei another personality that was with the Baskervilles before, or is just another name? The place where I'm reading PH only have til Ch 93 :onion110:

Zwei is 2 in German, so you can think Zwei = Noise + Echo. Actually it's like Noise's last name. I think it's because Noise has two personalities, so other Baskervilles started to call her Zwei.

So. Decided to read a few chapters of Nagato Yuki-chan no Shoushitsu in preparation for the anime, and honestly I'm not impressed. The characterization is completely off. Kyon loses his quirkiness, and Nagato isn't even the same Nagato we see in the Disappearance movie. I truly hope they don't keep this characterization in the anime.
