THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
Yay! Muneakira and Jubei have been rescued (if that's what you really want to call it). It's kick ass time now!!!
I really Liked this one. Seems almost as if with each new episode the amount of plot points per episode increases. Kanetsugu was useful to the team this time around. Jubei's gonna be back, Gisen got a serious case of red eye now! and Yoshihiko probably gonna get his butt kicked... I can't WAIT!
This episode was action-packed and all but I lost the excitement when they started spouting bull about samurais, trust, power and confessing to Muneakira.
What do they see in him? He's been fairly useless after episode 1.
That's the universal question: What do the harem girls see in a harem protagonist?
I appreciate lots of plot movement and all but I think I prefer if this show stuck to comedy/ecchi moments and being plotless if the plot included lots of cliche talks.
Oh well, two more episodes left.

I hate to get away from the episode. What did you expect? That's how harems are. I think all the talk about samurais and trust and whatnot actually help you realize that there is actually some seriousness among all the girls and jokes. They are going to fight the boss (can I call them that in an anime?) and the show kind of needs to redirect. I don't feel like it makes it inconsistent either. It's to be expected.
I personally disliked this episode, mainly because the pace of the story got sped up on such short notice. If the previous episodes were going to go that slow, it should dictate the pace for the rest of the show.
In the intro vids you see a lot of action that we never seen yet in the show itself, which is why i think this would be a lot better if it was a 24 episode rather than 12 episode series, this way, a lot of stuff doesn't need to be crammed rushed and other things dont need to be left out. I too also disliked how Yoshihiku started babbling off an suddenly losing his cool after a few words... Muneakira woke up and and appeared out of that glass case somehow....and then Nia softening up...
2 episodes isn't enough screen time for Jubei's master samurai form... the story still revolves around Muneakira and Jubei, but if only 1/3 of the series was screen time for jubei in action, it's not enough. The intro alone tells you there's going to be LOTs of action over a fairly long period of time, because you see jubei in many scenes in the intro...soaring through the midnight sky and supposedly fighting during the day.
If only the first 8 episodes' pace didn't go by so slowly... then what we saw in ep 10 would be much more appropriate in my eyes.
Pretty good episode. Yoshihiko is insane with his project! I would certainly not like the whole artificial process such I don't like stemming at certain costs most likely. The beginning was also pretty crazy with Gisen illusion of a erotic harem of Hattori/Matabei and Kanetsugu. Lots of Gisen fan service too. I also liked the spiritual fluctuation reading along with the whole set up of it.
The second part Kanetsugu was brilliant whether being sad or happy with self confidence. The fight with the normal soldiers was ok. Probablyy most impressive was Sanada when she begged to know Muneakira's condition ot Nia, Nia resisting Yoshihiko's orders and finally Muneakira getting out of the curse to the point of producing pain towards that evil eye. OST was good and Sanada is still the best really like her the most.

they can uncencored the boob part, but I hope they don't uncencored the dick part as well.
ROFL! I know all this Muneakira ink should be left there, I would not want to see his ass at all! D:

I really hate how Yukimura(?) refused that boobjob from (that white haired girl with the red eye).
How does he dare call himself straight after refusing such opportunities? He is a disgrace to the heterosexual men.
