wow. that was an amazing episode and so. sad. 10/10 for sure but the animation quality WTFF. did they cut the entire budget or what, cuz this epically legendary episode could have been even more legendary if the drawing was good.

Actually they upped the animation quality in this episode. The action scenes were very well animated and were very fluid. Especially the army scene, but it resulted in the creators compromising with the drawings in the non-action scenes making people think that animation got worse

The action inside the house was so dark that i could not make anything out. Seriously? That ruined an otherwise godly episode.

I know the odd ball treatment isn't anything especially new, but i absolutely loved the emotion, and tension in the second half. I am not sure i would of guessed the outcome if i had not been told, but I made a lot of sense.

(Excellent 9 - damn animaton =( )

Some of the action scenes and animation kinda worked for this episode. Not certain since I DID know teh degradation of the quality.

Ryner betrays Sion to help him with his duties of kings, but to do so, he has to betray Ferris. Ouch, but not to worry, it'll get better soon!

9/10

(QUESTION: So is Tiir Rumiblue part of Ryner's side and going against Sion?)

Still lol'ing at some parts where the soldiers where animated.

Anyway, great episode once again. Liking the fact that Ferris is now chasing for him.

Awesome episode, I always wanted Ryner to ditch Ferris and now it has happened. Maybe now he will finally get to sleep away his days. Just a question but are there translated versions of the night novel for this online?

Amazing episode.

Tiia is such a badass, I think he is the best character in the anime. Anyway, I did not liked Sion's attitude towards Ryner, I wonder what is he going to do next.

The change in animation style actually gives more feel to the story and removes some of the genericness....

This was a very good episode in the character development section.

Need a tissue?
The new animation wasn't bad at all i liked Ferris and Ryner's new outfits, and Shion looked good with those shoulders.

I wonder how the fight between Luke and Miran ended, the fact that Luke disappeared has a number of possibility's.

And i wonder how this twist will turn out as well.

If that happen it would freaking owns everyone definitely.

I hate funimation making the Quality suckish. Go watch raws or search Derp subs for better quality.

Ahhh it was moving to see Ryner tell Sion that he "knows" about the letter/order...

Sion AND Ryner looked great ^^*;; love Ferris' new costume.

I think this episode was solid in terms of plots...

can't wait until next week!

Hmm, I'd say this was the best episode since episode 3. There were some interesting developments, like Ryner and Tiia joining up, and, from what I could tell(lousy Funimation stream...), the animation style used here was very unique. I especially liked the scene where Tiia ate that one soldier guy. Disgusting, yeah, but nicely animated. =)

Didn't like the animation changes, thought it looked horrible and in parts was ridiculously dark. Also it had Iris in it speaking so yeah. Other than that good solid episode. I kind of wanted to see Tiia got up against Sion and his army more but what we got was still great.

Looking forward to the next episode, the less Ryner and Ferris are together the better the series seems to get.

That was some pretty awesome animation but an unusual art style. The action sequences were amazingly done, fluid and complex. But they could have worked on getting the geometry of the characters right.

Poor Ferris, she looked really hurt at the end of the conflict. D:

I thought that last week's episode was great but this one was even better. We begin to see Ferris develop more emotions thanks to Ryner. I'm guessing we won't be seeing any Ryner/Ferris anytime soon.

Great episode, plot-wise.

The animation was really fluid and it felt alive albeit a bit clunky, but it lost on quality, like colors, shading (wtf with Lucile's face?), et cetera. I think I preferred previous style, it was more pleasant to the eye. The change doesn't suit this series.

I look forward to the next ep, but I won't hold my breath for any eye-candy anymore.

Holllllllllly shit, Tiir is so awesome.

But what the fuck happened to the rest of this episode? It was awful. Ryner being emo, Ferris being OOC. Tiir could have just killed everyone and taken Ryner away... letting them live doesn't sound like him, either. What a clusterfuck.

So Ryner just goes with Tiir. Doesn't ask him where they're headed to, who Tiir is, who his "friends" are. Doesn't second-guess his decision to hang out with someone who chooses to kill and enjoys it (as opposed to Ryner having no control when he goes berserk). Sure. Because any sane person would do that. I can understand if Ryner had said something like "I'll go with you if you let everyone live", but that isn't even what happened here. Shitty writing is shitty.

This ep needs moar Miran. :[

The drama goes along with the decision thinking.
Ryner's decision is determine when Sion call Tiia as a monster.
Althou they did not explain it like in the LN, but the director use orange color to cover the screen....

How old are you?

One should know that such conflicts where there isn't enough communication can lead to such things in real life, too. What did you expect Ryner to say? "Well, everyone has betrayed me, I feel like a little shitball but for the sake of justice, I will kill you right now!"? He might have laughed at him and could've showed him how miserable he is. But Ryner being a fighter of justice would be so unfitting at that point. Good thing that he didn't do that, that would've made the anime shit.
You mustn't forget that real people do mistakes, too. Especially if they feel as down as Ryner did. Sometimes they do what they know is bad out of sadness, defiance, or because they want to pay others back without even noticing any of this.

The last couple of episodes had a meaning, you know. And the anime showed us the feelings and the ways of thinking of the peopole in this anime very well. It was very obvious how hurt Ryner was. He pretended to do it for the sake of the country and even lied to himself, but I believe that he just couldn't handle the situation and wanted to flee after being betrayed once more.


I think that the inner conflicts of all of them are presented very well and all of this will lead to a nice tragedy. They will fight against each other even though they don't want to. Talking to each other much earlier could've prevented it, but this is just how it has turned out for them.

Looks like every good anime need an episode with TTGL'ish animation. It's an amazing ep nevertheless, I'm thinking about finally giving this show a 10.

Oh, and Luke disappearing makes me wonder if he really won that fight against Miran.

It wasn't a bad episode, but it was insanely dark. By that I mean so many scenes were black and shadowed. Couldn't see a darn thing. It kind of killed the enjoyment.

What was with Sion's wierd arm-waving in so many scenes? Looked like he was being controlled by a puppeteer on crack.

Still it was a great time seeing Ryner so depressed and everyone feeling misunderstood and betrayed. Like a classic breakup: really, the problem is not you -- it's me.

Do NOT watch the Funi version. It's REALLY bad. Get the Derp version which has Funi subs + brightened video.

The animation was neither good or bad but i loved it. It's strange at some points but it's awesome at fights.
This was a sad episode aswell, but Sion looked cool in that outfit <3

Can't wait to BD releases. >.<

As far is I know, Derp uses own translations, not FUNi's.

Did you not watch the show or something? As Tiir said: Killing Sion would make Ryner enter the berserk mode. Hence he didn't attempt killing anyone. With this its quiet clear that Alpha Stigma =/> Tiir's eye power(damn did I forget or has it not been mentioned yet?). So with this its clear that Tiir is not only a hottie but also someone with functional cerebral hemispheres.

Firstly Rryner said he will tag along because it was the easiest escape route in the situation he was in.....you know with the emotional drama and self depression. It doesn't guarantee that he will abide by Tiir's orders or actions. He is simply spending his time so as to not be a burden on Sion, Ferris, etc etc. He is trying to accept that he must live alone forever so as to not hurt people he cares about so why not travel with someone similar. Plus Tiir is evil. Even if Ryner goes all berserk on him it really wouldn't matter because of Tiir's counter ability and the fact that he kills people like ants.

Loved the drama and Tiir❤ and Ryner❤ and where is Miran❤?
Wow the gore❤
Tiir moves like a poltergeist XD
Wow the animation ☹
Yes yes Ferris go after your boy!! ♪......love is in the air♪

Except that when I compare the two, the difference is not even noticeable. So I am doubting the fact that they use their own translations.

From the last episode's preview, I was expecting more development in this episode. They were stuck in the same location for this whole episode. I was really loving the exchange between Tiia and Ryner, along with Ryner, Sion and Ferris. Quite alot of mixed up feelings and emotions over there, no wonder Ryner chose to leave. But at least he was thinking for Sion and Ferris sake if he left, such a caring friend..

Tiia could unexpectedly be quite a 'good' person when you see him away from the battlefield. He's quite a good persuader, he mentioned he had lots of other friends as well right? It's like he brought them all together from what we see in the next episode's preview. But..why are they all KIDS?! I guess they all died before they reached maturity..

Overall, I really liked the episode alot (though I'm still wishing it could have gone on a little longer!!). Ahh well, one more week to go~
