I'm still kind of disappointed that Zakuro just falls for the other Lt so easily.
Other than that it was an interesting episode, the twins are great.

So there is more behind Zakuro then she herself thought, which explains why a group is after her.
The question still remaining is what is this reason and what does her mother have to do with it.
This Anime is getting better with each episode wonder if it can keep this up.

This was a good episode. Those twins are stronger than they look. I wonder why their branches don't turn into a knife?

*emerging from the shadows*
I find Otome Youkai Zakuro quite entertaining(explaining the high score on my list). And I say this after 5 episodes already.
The love between Zakuro and the lt. never existed. She was purely infatuated with admiration for him. This episode showed where Zakuro's true base, true pylon is. The action felt a bit rushed. If this is going to be a 12 episode series, it's completely understandable, but still, it fills a bit rushed.
All in all, good episode and can't wait for the next one, because things are getting interesting.

Hoozuki and Bonbori are the kind of ladies I want to be drunk with, so cute and loveable even when drunk (more so when drunk).

This was beyond beautiful

Zakuro surely is a badass.
Seiously why did they employ Ganryuu in such a serious business? He seemed like a complete wuss during the fight.
The twins are defnitely my fav now, apart from Zakuro.
...and the exorcism twins's song just doesn't get old.

This.
Also it was very clever of lt. Hanadate to play as a victim.

really love the song they always sing during exorcism :D

I guess that this will be a 12-episode anime because of the pace and the current volume of original manga is only 5 (or 6?).

Anyway, this anime is really good and quite entertaining. Hope JC Staff will keep this up until the end :)

I don't think he was a complete wuss, actually. He did want to fight and protect his twins, but he just got held back by them, as they were scared he couldn't handle it,that's why he ran away after the fight had ended with that 'angry' look on his face, that most characters do when they feel misunderstood. ('Because I WANTED to protect you'!)

He couldn't even swing his sword (before he was held back) because of fear and of course he would be pissed. Being protected by two girls is embarrassing you know.

To be fair I think he is more frustrated with himself. He stepped up and got shaken so easily. One small attack and he was down the corpses only adding to his panic. Then he got protected and could only watch as Bonbori was injured. If it hadn't seemed like he needed to be protected they might have been able to handle it without Bonbori getting hurt. But yeah I'm sure his pride has been hurt by this. Though I'm not sure how that's going to be resolved since he really doesn't seem that good in a fight.

Maybe Ganryuu will become tech support lol

But i really like the twins now since they are more than just silly girls. They are rrly compassionate and caring too. They would rather sacrifice themselves than see someone they care about get hurt. *siiiiigh.

And the other two couples are just to die for. I can hear the wedding bells chiming in the distance lol

Really great episode! One thing I didn't quite get though.. the scene where the girls came out after putting on those dresses for the evening party. Why did Riken look away from Susukihotaru?

I assumed it was because he thought she was cute at first, but looking back Susukihotaru didn't really take it that way. Now I'm confused by it as well...

Good episode. It's nice that these last 3 episodes have all been character development, first Zakuro, then Hotaru, and now the twins. Plus, this one didn't shut out the other characters as much. They all had their moments. I now officially like all of the girls.. so hard to pick a favorite.

What is it with 2/3 of the guys in this show being useless, though? Riken is the only one to do anything! It's be nice if they could make Agemaki a bit more helpful. I never expected much from Ganryuu in the first place, so I'm not so disappointed about that. Even so, I hope they prove more useful in the episodes to come.

Can't wait to see next week's. I really hope this series goes for longer than 12 episodes.

I give this episode a tops of 5/5. The plot of this ep got me awed.

Going to a ball and waiting for the creepy person to show her face


Seeing Zakuro so scared


So kawaii

Knowing that Zakuro is gonna learn about some deep mistery in future episodes.

I can't wait for next one and the next and ...

Seems like this show just keeps improving. Looks like there will be some drama when Zakuro finds out whatever it is she doesn't know yet.

You can also wonder why Ritsu is only on Drums or Lockon is the one always using the MS with sniping gun attached to it lol. Everyone in anime has different powers. to simply answer your question :P

i second this. but wasn't ganryuu included because he is assumed to be the prodigy in military. the youngest to become a second lieutenant in the history of the imperial army? they did mention in episode 1, remember?

I never thought how an episode can change one's impression, i seriously love the twins now, but just before the episode, i always thought they were silly and just to make up a cast of characters. btw, i can differentiate between them when they are talking. since i am a huge fan of horie yui. when she is talking, its hoozuki and when she is not, its bonbori. :P

it was because riken was at loss of words (unlike hanadate's fake comment just to win over zakuro) at the beauty of susukihotaru. and thats why he took his eyes away. but she did misunderstand him. but later on, when she touched his shoulder as he leaned towards her to help her stand up, she accidentally read his mind and thanked him. awwww. i want her so badly. <3

The best part of the episode, OMG i cant really decide.

making a grumpy face, agemaki: "he talks a lot for someone at a loss of words" +1

leaning at riken's shoulder, susukihotaru: "Thank you very much..." +1

zakuro crying after hitting agemaki for taking his eyes of from her. +1

holding zakuro in his arms, agemaki: "she's so powerful, and yet she is trembling" +1

Twins singing in rotation while being drunk. so lovely. +1

Revealing the powers of the twins and their determination to protect Ganryuu. +1

Twins fight scene and you-will-never-get-tired-of-the-lovely-song. +1

This is easily one of the best anime this season. The story is great, the artwork is great. and the character development thus far has been absolutely brilliant.

ANN is not reliable. They just put the number of episodes according to the announcements of airing schedule in an anime quarter. ANN sux anyways.

Yea, but he even grunts as he turns his head. Like as if he was displeased with Susukihotaru, which I thought was kinda weird.

I think he didn't like what Susukihotaru said when she came out "This outfit is making me nervous" (that's how it's translated by [baaka]) <-- so I dunno if that translations is accurate or not, because why would you dislike her from saying that?

This episode was great, as everybody said it really made me like the other characters more evenly now. I already like Susukihotaru and Riken so this episode helped with the others. I am starting to root for Agemaki and Zakuro harder than before (obviously they will be getting together at some point, but I wasn't a huge fan of them separately or together) and the twins are really showing their true colors.

As for why Riken is the only guy fighting is because, imo, he is the only one who has a "weak" girl to protect. Susukihotaru's power is useful but it's not a fighting power, and she herself said she isn't good at fighting. Zakuro and the twins have powers that give them an advantage over just a sword like their male partners have so they tend to take the reins more.

Yeah Ganryuu could have slashed at the spider or whatever, even shot it if they have guns, but do you really think it would have done that much good? It probably would have overcame him easily and either the twins would have had to step in and save him anyways or he would have been killed. Also in regards to him being a prodigy maybe his expertise is tactical and not so much actual battle.

As for the manga volume 5 just came out not too long ago so yeah, not much material to work with. Seems like it's one of those series that takes it's sweet time coming out too :(. I special ordered vol. 1 and I can't wait for it to arrive :3. If it's anything as good as the series I'll have to get the next 4 as well!

Maybe he likes her better in her normal/traditional wear? Or maybe he grunted his approval and it came across wrong.

Nice to see more of the twins in this episode. I feel bad for Ganryu-sama, because he can't protect Bonbori. Anyways, that was a good episode.

NOOOOOooooooo! NOT 13!

Ahem, I have to hope the poster quoted above is right because otherwise that would suck so very terribly. I am so sick of good shows getting so few episodes and crap shit getting the full season.

I love this show more and more with each episode I watch. I am dying to know why those people are after Zakuro and what secrets are yet to be revealed about her and her mother. Also the twins were so funny and cute in this episode. I can't pick my favorite out of the girls, I love them all! I hope this show goes for at least 26 or more. I'd hate it if they condensed it into 13 episodes, that is unless there would be a season 2, then I'd be okay with it ^^

Well on MAL it says there is an N/A number of episodes. Maybe they will do something like Kami nomi zo shiru Sekai has. It was reveled that KamiNomi will have a number of episodes depending on the number of the auditorium and if it is really popular, they will make even a second season. I really hope JC Staff will do the same with Otome Youkai, but I doubt it it will be an over 13 season. Why? Because from what I heard, JC Staff has for the winter a couple of big works. They might make Shana S3 as well.

It also seems like Agemaki has gotten a little closer to Zakuro.

Ahh this show is absolutely brilliant. Thanks everyone for the screens.... those are some of the BEST moments.

This is in the running for my fave of a season; the romance, the art, the music, the characters, the story... it's all pure win.

Brilliant.

The twins really impressed in this episode. Always playful, relaxed and comfortable in their own skin, the twins were in their element at the ball (and incredibly adorable when they were a tiny bit drunk). However, they also showed their strength, calmness in the face of danger, resolve and how much they care for Ganryuu.

Ganryuu must be feeling awful right now, much like Agemaki did awhile back but probably worse. He's no Riken, but he hopefully he'll get to the point where he can at least not be a liability in a fight.

Really nice moment between Zakuro and Agemaki. It will be nice to see them grow closer together. To see her start to realize how much he likes her and to see him realize how much she relies on him.

I don't remember him grunting but maybe Riken is more shy than he lets on. The scene later on where she responds with a second "thank you" pretty much reveals he thought she looked great on the dress. He's a man of few words already, so yeah, he showed some shyness.
