Touka Gettan 03 -- Japanese wiki

There is a Japanese wiki for Touka Gettan which collates information about the show, including a run-through of each episode, as well as details about the characters, links to other sites, etc. I thought I'd translate the wiki for episode 3. It may not be as useful as I thought -- and it is definitely more work than I expected -- so I may not do others. But here it is.

Up to episode 3, this show just gets better and better. Unique and fascinating. Episode 4 aired a few hours ago.

→inference, question, etc.
+++ hashihime

Hmm yea this definitely doesn't tell us much we don't know already. It is a nice find though. It might be a nice source to go to in the future. ^.

I hope you continue the translation as I found it's very useful for me to follow the storyline. Best regard!
