THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Wow, that got weird. Poor Cecil.

Moyo's reactions to that magic circle made me go wtf this episode. That was quite the action this episode though. Cecil made the save like usual and that was quite nice. Still, she's got some ways to get her mom out of jail.

I think Cecil is going to discover more to the truth at Makusu's impeachment case. We'll see next episode.

Did the studio run out of money or something?

I'm only half way through the episode and the number of closeups, instances of the camera panning away from the actual action and still scenes is... very jarring.

They saved what little money was left to transform Tokyo Tower into a mechaloid but wow, we haven't seen a partially animated episode like that for years, years! Ever? Has there been a worse partly animated episode which aired in recent memory? Wow... I thought they were going to end the season there, why have episode 12 after that half animated farce?

This has to be the worse episode I seen in my life lol. Wtf was up with the animation in this episode? At times there was things going on, but I couldn't see them happening. Only heard them.

I'm scared to see what the next episode is going to be like. If I can see it at all. I'm might just be starring at the tower again.

Moyo kinda freaked me out a bit after she saw that circle. Makusu asking Cecil to defend him after everything he has done so far. Can't wait for the next episode.

Well that was cool watching the same magic conjuring vortex go back and forth during the underground fight at the beginning...

I forgot to add. This episode ruined the entire show which wasn't anything more than decent to begin with.

I was actually looking forward to this episode a lot, but the animation ruined it. I was dumbstruck when I found it out that my video stream wasn't buffering, but they just decided not to animate stuff... very disappointed.

edit:

Ok, so they wasted all of their time and budget the big robots ...

Sigh, I liked the turn of events though. I was somewhat right about Moyo with here being a demon and all.

I was kinda disappointed in this episode..

I found it a bit stupid that Cecil, somebody with 'so much' magic could be taken that easily as well as Cecil had 2 other people with her.

As well as the animation was lacking in this episode, I felt that a lot of the time we were just listening to the scene and not really watching them. I didn't even realize that the 'guy' got shot...

Oooo.. of course she gets wings... who wouldn't have guessed

and they even don't show this scene?
Makusu asking Cecil to defend him? Seriously? o.O

Episode deserves on 4/5...

...
Of course she has so little magic that she is defeated easily and yet so much that she attracts Lucifer but in fact Lucimoyoyon had been around all the time... and could decide at any time to give her power to Cecil instead of her summoner because... she felt like it and because they weren't obeying any rules so why should Lucifer?

Stupid, stupid, stupid... and too bad really as the show started out with an interesting premise. Sigh...

Wth was this sh!t?!?
I literally laughed at all the random stills and sound being off I thought it was my vlc acting up or the video itself being bad.

Complete joke they better redo episode 11 or some junk or 12 better be out of this world cause this was....just bad.
I felt nothing when that dude got shot he transitioned from holding Cecil to just lying on the floor, then the dude shot him like 5 times and there was no blood, no jerking nothing just motionless still with gunshot noise in the background the hell??

A lot of stupid face stills. If you're going to do that at least show something more attractive.

Lol at Shizumu being shot but all we could see was Cecil's derp face.

This is 2014's version of Psycho-Pass' episode 18.

Please put this show out of its misery as quickly as possible.

It was sad to see Shizumu's death. Shizumu's death scenes got some animation error problems.

Now Cecil is going to find the truth of "Makusu" and defend him for goods.

Yes, this episode was so weird like wdf@ Shimizu's death. never saw his face and Cecil didn't even care when his father kept shooting at him. Lucifer doesn't seem at all upset about the merge and is now Cecil's personal cheerleader? And like everyone else said, at the beginning when Shimizu starts showing off a little bit and then i see his close up for like 5 seconds now and then.

Depending on how it ends makes it a 6/7 for me

What low production value,probably the worst episode yet.The director or whoever was responsibly for Kite should just stick with hentai,atleast then the lack of quality is acceptable.

Ohh,she can fly too.

Likely that is the man himself:
Umetsu, Yasuomi
Director, Episode Director, Storyboard, Series Composition, Original Creator, Animation Director, Character Design, Key Animation, Chief Animation Director
Not quite the one man animation studio of Cencoroll Atsuya Uki but with that list of jobs, it's close... or maybe it is the same LOL. Should really hire some help for his next project.

The battle reminded me of a Marvel movie. Anyway, good battle. Shizumu despite being a dog was a good guy.
Moyoyon has me intrigued, she's a mystery.
Bad animation, I gotta emphasize this.

I made an account specifically to look up, and discuss, that I was indeed not insane. I paused the video, tried different mirrors, until I actually realized that it was the anime and not me. I think this was by far the worst episode I have seen in years in terms of quality. So many still shots, camera panning, and nothing actually happening when you can clearly hear it should be. What the hell happened?

No one remember's the End of the second season of Birdy the Mighty from not too long ago?

That last episode had it's animation quality drop substantially! Absolutely bad. It looked like a fan-group was given the reigns for that last episode. It had a shit-ton of action. Good stuff really, but below average animation for sure.

The previous mentioned anime had it worse than Wizard Barristers.

I remember AOT having some still-image scenes mid-way through the series; the last occurence of budget-saving I could remember but it wasn't particularly bad IMO.

To anyone wondering why there was so much missing animation, the answer is simple; this episode was simply unfinished. Oftentimes, an episode of anime is handed over within an hour of the deadline and when you see unfinished animation, that's what it usually means. That being said, this is the most unfinished episode of anime I've ever seen. Keep in mind, I'm assuming, but this is the most likely reason; the deadline came up and they weren't ready, but they had to turn the episode over anyway.

I heard the reason why this episode was "unfinished". They didn't made the deadline (This is already announced by them).
They're working on Episode 12 as we speak and gave it some more priority than Episode 11.
So let's hope they'll make the deadline for the final episode!
All of this will be fixed in the BD version ofcourse~

Wow, that was pathetic. That death scene was so bad, the most important antagonist in the whole show and you use a still shot for his 30 second death scene. I swear half of that episode were still close up shots or the same animation sequence looped over and over again. That episode just ruined a perfectly mediocre show.

I tried so many differents links, I was thinking that it was my computer's problem, now I see that it was the animation's fault.
I was looking for this episode, so much importants things happened! I don't know what expect for the next episode, maybe the only animation we will get is the OP and the ED

Moyo 0_0 First she saves the investigator's life then we find out she is Lucifer.

Not much actual animation this episode :/

Shizumu saved her, but why?

The fuck is with this horrible quality...

So they showed the Meta/Diabloids getting formed properly, but didn't show Shizumu getting killed? Lame.

Bad episode... they need to fix this episode if they ever release the anime on DVD or Blu-ray, such an awful episode.

The whole episode I was reminded of the final 2 episodes of Neon Genesis Evangelion...

I really hope that was a single episode budget save because of the amount of Diabloid scenes there were, and that the quality returns next episode...
It would be nice if they later improved this episode for the Blu-Ray edition too :)

CG vs artwork by hand.

However, I'm pretty sure they deliberately left the death scene unanimated for certain reasons to be revealed next episode.

Wow I thought my player was acting up that's why I was missing some scenes. That scene when Shizumu was shot I was like "that scene is so stupidly framed. Go for the close up shot!" Then I heard Shizumu gasp his final breath after getting shot again. I kept looking at the timer maybe it stopped or skipped but it was running normally XD

So I guess they really blew all their budget on episode 1.

On another note, called it that Moyoyon was Lucifer XD!

The problem is not about budget, it's about meeting the deadline. They simply didn't have enough time to draw everything for some reason.

Yeah, I don't even. Its not only the animation, but the direction and pacing as well. Also they added a lot of things which they probably won't explain. Also, next episode, the trial? It seems a rather strange way to end the series.
