Shiro both challenges Steph to a game, and also decides the game and the rules (rock paper scissors). I didn't notice it the first time, but I'm reading the LN now and this blatant disregard for the rules that they just established is annoying. You could say Steph is dumb for not realizing but it's still blatantly a creator error

5. The challenged party has the right to decide the rules of the game.

well, i guess maybe the rules don't say anything about the challenger is forbidden to choose the rules and you can say steph is dumb, but i'm still going with creator error

Hilarious episode! Last episode that made me laugh this much was Samurai Champloo's baseball episode which I watched just a few days ago.

Pretty good episode, it's interesting to see how much winning a game can change a person. Love stephs character this series should be good.

Comedy was a big hit for me.

Damn Shiro and Sora are smart as hell. I could barely keep up with the paper, scissors, rock explanation.

They are definitely getting the crown from the cheater.

I'm so tired of the "accidental" groping trope. Even in an ecchi title, it's unimaginative at best.

Maybe I'm slow, but I couldn't follow the rock-paper-scissors game. Or maybe the joke was that it wasn't supposed to make sense, or Sora is plain unbeatable no matter what he does.

Ah, the siblings. While I'm still not sold on all of their dynamic, the part where they got separated was pretty funny. I hope Shiro becomes a separate identity from Sora, because so far she acts like Sora's right hand and she doesn't make her own decisions. If not, well, I won't be disappointed, only dismayed.

And if Steph can tone down the slapstick a little bit, maybe she can be a little more bearable too.

What I don't understand though, is what changed Sora's mind about interfering in court matters? At first he implied it wasn't his problem that the kingdom and Imanity is failing, but then suddenly he and Shiro are both totally on board with helping Steph. Maybe I missed something, or was I supposed to guess their reasoning?

Damn interesting, The rules always being on default makes this more tricky.

Way too much mind gaming for that rock paper scissors game ... anyway I thought Sora said he HAD to win using paper or else it'd count as a loss for him? Did I just misread the subs? Awks ... well anyway, it's weird to think the Covenant magic is strong enough to literally just make Steph fall in love with him o_O Seems like I was right last episode about them helping her get the throne back though. The backstory with the different races and their affinity for magic was interesting too. Looks like Clammy, the girl who cheated, managed to win her way to become Queen ... hmm, now how is this gonna work? I guess they'll have to bet the throne :P We get the ED this episode and eh ... again, I don't love it, but I guess it fits well enough XD

Whoa, the brother/sister complex in this series is STRONG. Judging how they behave when they aren't together, it seems they've gone through some harsh trauma in the past, which may also be the reason why they rejected the real world :c

Anyway! The games seem like A LOT of fun, and the fanservice is rather creative for an ecchi series, so I'm already invested :3

It's still only episode 02 and it's already captivating me. I was a bit worried though when I saw Steph banging her head against the wall. Reminds me of "Love Hina" one of my most hated anime of all time. I'm just worried it would turn out to be too an exaggerated corny antics in the anime and I might end up bored.

But for some reason, I can't help being optimistic because overall, the storyline is pretty much interesting and witty anyway.

Holy shit. That was better than the first, and gaaah I love Stephanie. She's my fave character in this anime so far. <3

Sometimes Sora and Shiro can really be annoying, huh? With them being savage af outta nowhere. Haha. It'll take time for me to like those two.

I LOVE STEPHANIE DOLA! Gaaah. I lost it everytime she bangs her head. Hahaha!

I'm wheezing at Sora and Shiro being so far away from each other. Haha fuck.

Good luck, Sora, on your goal being a King of that world.

Sora played Steph like a fiddle there, that Stephvision was hilarious.

Sora and Shiro sure are attached, they enter instapanic mode when they can't see each other.

Their brother-sister relation is adorably cute! They're so attached to each other that they can't function properly when they're too far apart. (Though, maybe that's because of their anthropophobia...) Also, seems like Sora is not into lolis or incest which is a good thing especially if he's always close to Shiro.

The characters are so loveable, it only takes that jankenpon match for me to like Steph's character! The world is finally explained, I can't wait to see more of Sora and Shiro wrecking everyone on their path to become the king! (Also looking forward to seeing the looped fanservice moment every time after the opening and ending!)

Nice Doraemon reference right there

Haha, it was funny when they got in shock from being far from each other.

A Doraemon reference? Where?

More statistics and probability, game theory, emotional manipulation, inception, psychological warfare, etc.

Wow so they can't be too far apart or they'll turn into useless bags of meat! O_o Interesting.

At least the foolish granddaughter of the foolish last king whom they might try to prove right in the end provided information on the world. Humans sucks in magic but I wonder what were the rest of the races that were not mentioned?

I'm not really digging this anime so far. I couldn't really care for the entire Rock-Paper-Scissors game. I'll continue to give it a few more episodes because a friend highly recommended it to me.

This episode was much better than the first. The characters were fleshed out a lot more.

I didn't really understand what was going on through that Stephanie's head during the RPS game, but I loved the bit at the end - "Welp, guess I'll just become king" xD

Heeee!!!! That's why guys love this show, because of ecchi.
Over dramatic and fast pace show.
The cards game reminds me of Liar Game, and also Kaiji but Liar Game is the best!!!

I like how they gave us more information about the kingdom, humanity and the former king.
I thought Steph would be just a fan service character but the second half really improved her personality.

Did I miss Sora telling Steph his name? After she throwed him out of the room, she went out and called him Sora, but I don't remember him telling his name.

Maybe they ignored rule number 5?

Nice episode though, got a few laughs. I didn't remember the amount of fan service this show had, it's a lot.
Feels good knowing the JoJo reference now, didn't get it the first time.

Wow, the rules of this world are really absolute and you can't be against them. I didn't expected it could even change the behaviour of a person.
