Its a shame that one of my favorites out of the bunch had to leave so quickly... Still I'm very glad that she didn't end up dying :')

I can't be the only one getting bored of this formula. I want some kind of twist. Like haru all of a sudden kills or attempts to kill Azuma. Or haru actually getting killed.

Favorite episode so far. The classmates make assassinations look so hard though... All they have to do is get a knife out, cut her throat and be done with it, yet they just torture Haru. Although, if it wasn't like this Haru would've been killed already. xD

Haru being friendly to her would-be killers is still hard to swallow.

Will every assassination attempt end with the assassin still alive? Though I probably wouldn't mind either way.

I was a little afraid at the beginning that this was going to be a typical school festival episode, but Haruki changed .the mood wonderfully when she stated that it's all a lie :D

I was hoping that since Haruki was being focused on this week she'd reveal information. On Haru since Nio already gave her some background information about Haru butchering her family

Was anyone else hoping that Haruki would still be in the next EP. Since this was only the 1st 24 hours of her assassination attempt? I guess she couldn't be since she got pretty injured (probably should have died) at the end.

The music in this series is so great! I'm glad to see another good ending song. Would anyone happen to know when the soundtrack and full versions will come out? I'm not really sure how it works since they have a new ending every week.

Meh..this is getting boring. The same formula every week.
Honestly I thought Azuma would be a nice MC but now shes just so dam boring but I really hope this picks up and something interesting actually happens.

Nio still best girl!

Nobody died yet and it's getting repetitive, I'm disappointed. Q_Q

Formulaic, not as violent as it could have been.

Dammit. So this show is going to be "Assassin of the Week" :/

Still okay thought. The action scenes are great.

The premise for this show is fantastic however the execution could be so much better. It really frustrates me that the mystery element in the first couple of episodes seems to have disappeared and there is now an obvious and predictable formula with the assassins failing one by one.

I'll stick with the show since its enjoyable but its annoying since it could be so much more than what we've got so far, I'm holding my breath though.

I'm finding this show less enjoyable every episode with the Assassin of the Week formula and Haru's still an idiot.

Episode a bit too short for my taste, always seems to end at the climax, at least this time, Tokaku has struggled quite a bit to put the carpet Haruki.
The look of the girls when they are pissed is really scary.
I hope that the study Diomedea best designs in view of the outputs of the BD.
Discrete animations, this time you do not understand what has happened to the murderous turn.
Nio is too sympathetic, while among Chitaru and Hitsugi, there is some complicity, but still do not want to say too much about its nature.

I think they'll probably remove the censors in the BDs for the bath scenes- " nope

6/10 for this ep.
Isayama Hajime should be awarded The Manga with The Highest Inconsistencies of Characters' Appearances.
He keeps performing multiple plastic surgeries on those Shingeki No Kyojin characters in a SINGLE chapter.
Yes, I've read up to the latest chapter of Shingeki No Kyojin manga.
Forced myself to read through the kidsketching chapters after the anime's ended. At least from now on, I only have to go through the hell once a month.
Patiently awaiting SNK TV/movie/OVA anime-sequel.
The 2015 SNK live-action movie would probably suck.

I Liked it.. 4/5

The fight was good... it approached the maximum near a real fight would be...
Damn..! That Haruki's broken arm was intense..

Stop thinking they are "super-heroes" and the fight should last 10 minutes or more... and that they would be doing unimaginable attacks, evading and dashing like a "super-hero".

As always, another end (with a good music) that fit perfectly (the lyrics, the scenes and etc) with the current "assassin" of the episode.

When Haru walked into the room and starting going on about how she was told to meet up there and shit, I face palmed so hard. LOL

Waaaah. Haruki was my fave assassin plus she was hot. No more fan service from her I guess, though that bath scene was nice while it lasted. She also had the best personality. I feel some of the other assassins are just the stereotypical "I need to kill" type of deal like it has been the past two assassins.
This has been my fave episode, but I feel like I have to turn off my brain while watching this as it gets so unrealistic at times. And haru. She is so annoying. And naive... Oh well. The fight scene was also good at least. 4/5 this episode.

I'm all for the predicatability of this series as long as the backstories remain as deep. It is rather bittersweet when it is one of the better backstories like this one, you get connected, and then they are gone forever.

Haru wasn't as grating in this one.

Nice to finally get some clearer clues into the Azuma thing as well.

Haruki had decent motives, but "karma" was like "Not today".

Oh, pitiful shadow cloaked in darkness.
Thy actions cause men pain and suffering.
Thy hollow soul drowns in thy sins.

Did Haruki thought that falling stage set up can kill them?? Thats lame!! Lame way to kill a person.

I didnt see that coming!! Only death can get it out of the cage! How thoughtful.

So can anyone explain why they don't just stab the girl in the classroom?

You win if you kill her right? Then just kill her.

Worst episode so far. Just pure nonsense.
