THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.

Aww, I found little Tokaku to be cute.

I think they'll probably remove the censors in the BDs for the bath scenes. Anyways, looks like Haruki's turn this week. The fight scenes were okay I guess. Haruki vs. Tokaku :p. Oh well, at least Haruki put up a decent effort.

Tokuku? And she "should" have died with all of that.

Fixed. Maybe I should refer to her as Azuma later on.

Alright. And is it wrong that the best part of this episode for me was the teacher's scream? He worked so hard, the poor guy. The hug was nice too.

Azuma with her family was interesting I guess. A play...really? Haruki's fight to me had far more depth than the previous two. Hopefully they'll keep going in this direction. The teachers scream was quite funny.

Even though I already read the manga, it somehow really hit me hard when Haruki said that Haru would still smile even if Azuma died. Also love the OST that was playing during that scene.

I actually liked this episode. Seriously thought Haruki was going to die near the end, but I guess she just gets to go home now.

Was just about to sleep, clicked refresh and this came out!
Haruki is the big sister of such a big family! Glad that she didn't die.
Still for Haruki to attempt at such risk, just wanting her family to smile, she was a nice person. The teacher's dramatic scream at the end xD
When Azuma was young she was cute, though she looked somewhat like a boy.

Haruki vs Tokaku was average.

Haruki didn't died. The teacher's scream at the end was the best part of this episode.

So it will be an assassin of the week formula :/

Decent back story and an alright fight.

"Noooooo!" Best moment this episode :P Poor guy.

Cool ED

I wonder if there is any kind of punishment for losing?

1. Namatame x kirigaya playing romeo & juliet was perfect

2. Ty for the hot tub fanservice

3. Meh, another assassin of the week taken down. At least the fight was intense

Hmmm. So it will be the assassin of the week kind of thing (not that it really bothers me). I hope the fights get even more intense.

Seriously though, this is Danganronpa with yuri.

Its always Romeo and Juliet isn't it? I've never seen an anime do any other play.

I like the backstory/reasoning for the assassins to be there I kind of wish we got more stuf, also the fights are really good but get finished once we get into them too.

Oh and what happens when they fail? I know they get kicked out but they always leave flowers which makes me think they killed them for failing the job.

So another assassin has been expelled, though at least she is still alive. At least we get a little backstory for Tokaku and Haruki for her siblings. Haruki was cool but sad that she is gone :(

The action was good, though I like how they shift into blue phase into red phase tbh. The teacher shouting was pretty funny XD.

Nice to get some backstory on Tokaku. The Romeo and Juliet scene was particularly yuri-tastic, as was Haru's hug near the end of the episode.

Unfortunately, one of my two favorites led the charge this week, and of course will no longer be appearing, which is surprising since I had her pegged to be in it for the long haul. Well, the cast is getting smaller, so each one will be getting more screen time probably!

As for next week, I predict we will lose either Suzu or Shiena. Since I feel they are contributing the least...(Even though Suzu is my favorite...)

K... I've reached the "information card" of the episode (so haven't read any comments yet) but with the "family structure" of the Azuma and Kuzunoha clans, doesn't that mean Tokaku would become heir of the Kuzunoha clan? Judging by what her grandmother said? She said she was the heir to the main clan. Which judging from my knowledge based on other anime that cover clan politics, if Azuma is the branch family, and Kuzunoha the main family, then when she said "main clan" then she meant Kuzunoha right?

EDIT: Also I can't wait for the BDs. I hate censorship of any kind! Glad there are some anime that do ATX releases with uncensored content and then just ramp it up for the BD release or include "OVAs" with over the top content.

EDIT2: Fight scene was rather short, but still I really liked it. I'm glad Haruki didn't die. I actually really liked her.

The fight Haruki put up was decent, although Tokaku was clearly stronger.

Poor sensei, his play and stage is now in ruins.

Ya. I enjoyed the fight this episode. Still wish they were longer but I guess that's to be expected of a 13 episode series. At least it doesn't feel rushed to hell and back like this week's black bullet. Evidently they absolutely MURDERED all the plot, etc for that episode.

EDIT: I'm also wondering if there truly is no punishment for losing besides the expulsion? Given how everything is set up, I'm wondering if the assassins who failed are secretly executed? Or is it up to whoever sent them, etc? I mean I guess a failed contract is punishment enough as it tarnishes your reputation as an assassin therefore you are much more unlikely to get a new contract from a future client, then you would if you succeeded.

EDIT2: Also I liked the ending hug between Tokaku and Haru! But is it just me or did Haru kind of look like she was being a bit sadistic with her expression? Or did I confuse that look with a flirtatious look?

OMG the bullshit!!! All of them happened to stand in the gaps?

For once I thought "wow Haruki's a competent assassin" because she did what everyone should've done from the beginning (handing a notice and then waste no time to kill) but then what did she do? choose a killing method that offers chance for resistance and took a long time to execute.

Have these assassins never heard of guns, knife, or any kind of blunt object? Haruki could've stabbed Haru's neck (fatal injury) or bludgeon her to death or shot her head and be done with it. Just because she made that inquiry to Nio doesn't mean she has to force herself to do a suicide-murder. That's just stupid!

How did a girl with a seemingly wholesome family (albeit most likely orphaned) become an assassin in the first place anyway? when exactly did she receive the training to become one?

The only good things in this episode were the fan service and ending song.

Yup the anime trailer had me fooled because this junk is bad ESPECIALLY with a dumb MC who knows everyone wants to kill her and still plays dumb and even tries to be their friends on top of all that is just stupid just complete nonsense, only so much I can take so I'm done with this.

Tokaku's got dem knife skills.
I have to admit, Haruki's threads looked pretty cool.
I'm glad that she made it out alive.
I wish the fight scenes lasted a bit longer than this.
That 48 hour one-time chance is really dulling out the action.
It is rather intense but I'd prefer if they came up with some other rules.

The best episode since the 48 hours murder thing begun.

I liked Haruki, and she putted up a pretty decent fight, at least better than the first two..

Pretty shit the way Tokaku and Haru survived, but well..

I freaking love Haruki character, that ending ? Was goddam cool, I would see several episodes dedicated to her... Therefore good on you show for having such a good character...

But then what happens ? They fucking get her off the show... with close to none screen time... So much potential wasted... Goddamit

At least we still got Nio *-*

A sharp metal knuckle punch to the face must hurt like sh!t. :O

Why is everyone saying she's alive? I didn't see anything confirming it, she could be killed offscreen :(

Why didn't she use a gun? why didn't Jack the Ripper use a gun?! huh? answer that one.
There are people with guns see the rich chick.

The action was so short. The teacher's reaction was pretty funny though. This anime sure has a lot of shower scenes, not that I'm complaining.

Nice episode.

I liked Haruki's style, using the strings to kill. It felt more assassin like when she attacked Haru.

At first Haruki looked like a strong killer and I didn't expect her to have a nice side like taking care of her family and all. It was surprising.

I did want her to put up a much better fight and not just nicely give up. I expected her to be one of the strongest of the assassin girls.

The Azuma-Haruki fight was nice with good animations and all.

That blonde one (I don't remember her name) is kinda weird. A carefree type girl who only cares about the outcome, whether the target was eliminated or not. Sort of a comedic girl I must say. Always trying to make jokes and stuff with a smile (mostly evil) on her face.

Yeah that part got me because it's probably true. I have a feeling that was what was bothering Akuma later too. I hope they explore that and dont' just drop the point.

The fight was cool and all but Haru's naivety is kind of annoying me.
End hug was nice I guess.

For now I'm in for the Yuri. I hope it gets a bit better from now on.

This was a great episode. However, I'm a little bit disappointed about Haruki being the one who was removed from Class Black...

She always reminded me of Kyouko from Madoka Magica.

Enjoyed this episode more than the previous one, only because Haruki's background. Aside from that she is one of my favourite and glad that she didn't die, but Nio is awesome too. ^_^

She was cool....WAS cool....but now she failed her mission of assassination....and failed at killing herself, and now she's gone. :/
Oh well....anyways....

Pretty decent episode: Haruki's weapons were some sort of spiked fists....right? Pretty cool, a fist fight.....against someone with a knife. owo
Nice. :3

Can't wait to see who's next in the assassination trial. :P
