THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Hmm, Angel Trumpet..

Looks like it's Chitaru's turn this week. I probably shouldn't pay attention to the OP song so much since it revealed her weapon of choice. I did like the style of the episode though and her outfit was nice. Actually, I thought the energy of this episode was decent in ways especially between Chitaru and Hitsugi's performance on stage.

Great ED by the way!

...and I thought the manga was slow-pace, and prefer the anime,
but there are not enough foreshadow about Chitaru and Hitsugi in the anime, not enough description about their character and backstory, which was more abundant in the manga, so I guess the part of Chitaru and Hitsugi will be more touching in the manga...

So there are actually some character dead, but will Shiena back?

1. At least 2 week's worth of episode was saved by killing Kenmochi, namatame, & kirigaya

2. Really liked namatame x kirigaya. Their stories were told way too fast

3. The ost quite good enough for me to buy into the cliché romeo x juliet setup

4. thought that kirigaya was a guy cuz she kept refering to herself as "boku" (which means "I" in japanese, primarily used by guys)

Jesus christ, they're in a hurry to kill off the characters.

I haven't been very impressed with this show, the ending of today's episode is my favorite part right now. I was like "oh no they won't" and then "fuck they did"

shit. that was very depressing.

I never thought an action packed anime filled with violence and profanity will have a very tragic and depressing episode. Almost made me cry :') XD

Romeo and Juliet tragic story + real murder and real suicide onstage + sad ED = ULTRA FEELS.

it is like they heard the complaints about no one dying so they just killed 3 in one episode..

great episode but kinda depressing.

while it was a fitting ending for these two i am not a fan of it. chitaru wanted to see her sensei smile again that is why she wanted to kill angel trumpet. doubt her sensei will smile when she finds out that her student killed herself..

again nice ed theme

Not at all, Shiena used "boku" too. And almost all of the girls are a bit boyish given the circumstances they grew up with. http://puu.sh/8Fk9Q.png

I almost shed a tear when they both died and then laughed when the audience started clapping cheerfully lolz.
Well I guess we can see a bit development in Tokaku and Haru's relationship. Tokaku looked shy when Haru tried to feed her the food haha. I was expecting for a little kiss for this ep since it was romeo and juliet after all hmm

Three deaths in one episode, Chitaru and Hitsugi's death was pretty good... kinda sad that Hitsugi had to be Angel Trumpet. Really liked how they used the play so well to the very end. Hitsugi really does treasure Chitaru to tell her the truth and wanting to be with her.

Great episode, I did like this episode, kinda depressing but was done quite well for focus of two!

This was the nicest episode of them all.
Plot speaking it was really good, I liked it, but the way it was executed was inevitably rushed.

3/5

I kinda get the feeling that if it weren't all girl assassins in this class, and if Chitaru had actually been a guy, then the story would have definitely flowed much better. I don't mind Yuri per say, but as a guy, I think it would have made it all the more sadder in the end if the two of them had actually an inkling of a possibility of a life together after all was said and done.

The abundance of back story, however quickly it was introduced in this episode, meant that Haru and Tokaku actually took a backseat in this episode, which was actually quite welcoming, as we didn't have to put up with Haru's lame "I want to be friends with everyone who wants to kill me" antics.

That said, I kinda feel sorry for Ken-Mochi. She was off'ed way too quickly, I didn't even get to grow fond of her yet, and then she was gone....

That ED was so great. I loved how the song completely reflected the last few scenes of the episode.

I wonder what the body count will be by the end of next episode XD

Kenmochi out just like that :(

The sword fight could have been better.

Tragic, but what do you expect when something has Romeo and Juliet in it?

And I hope they answer this, are the other girls dead or not?!

You're basically saying they didn't have a possibility of a life together because they were both girls? How would the story have flowed much better, what drastic change would it have made?

That was the best episode of the series by far. But it was also the most depressing! So many feels about characters I didn't know I cared so much for...At least we understand that they were actually a yuri couple finally!

I'm still not entirely sure that Shiena is done for, I mean she didn't get the chance to have an ending song, and that doesn't seem fitting, so I think she could come back...

As for the next character to leave, it has to be Suzu or Banba.

Damn, that was total BS. 3 characters written out in one episode. That ending was pretty depressing. That was a really impressive Romeo and Juliet play tbh though.

Seriously this episode some tears of me got shed... It was the first time, that i actually saw someone die in this Anime, which is really interesting, due to the show beeing an Anime which includes assassins.

The end of this Anime was so sad, they really played Romeo & Juliet with the ending of both dieing, this was so unexpected, I seriously thought, that both of them would come out alive. And then Kirigayas wish was also that both of them could get out of the class and live together in peace, such a cruel episode, Soooo cruel this world!!! QQ

Loved it 5/5, even when I cried like a little baby, and then this ending song, sooo sad..

Three people died in this episode, that's a little bit too rushed.

Chitaru and Hitsugi killed themselves in that act.

Wow. I gotta admit, I was surprised how devious that Hitsugi was. I knew from the moment that Chitaru said Angel Trumpet that she (Hitsugi) was the one, but it was fairly obvious to begin with, she was just too innocent throughout the show to NOT have that kind of intent behind her.

Still, the more that this show seems to go on... the less demented that these girls seem to be.

I mean, two episodes ago


Still, I would like to be able to see more on Haru''s past as well as Tokaku's, because it's getting a bit obvious from previous episodes that they have some hidden intent behind them as well.

Good episode even though a poison assassin becoming so attached to another female assassin so fast was kind of a letdown. Best assassin so far was Otoya( don't know how much of an assassin since she was a serial killer).Looking forward to Isuke,Sumeriko and Nio(dat girl is one craaazy one). 4/5 because it was too rushed for me

It was rushed, and Chitaru's death was meh, but overall the episode had feels. I'm glad Kirigaya wasn't this super monster psychotic assassin. She felt pretty human-like throughout. Chitaru shouldn't have died, but oh well. Sort of like a lovers suicide.

Isuke was hilarious with her death threat though

Nooo ;_; why did you do that Chitaru and why were Kirigaya 'Angel trumpet'... They were both great characters. I suspected there was something odd about Kirigaya since the start of this episode but still.
So depressing and that "for a moment, i thought they died for real" D:

2 dead and 3 out in one episode.

Even though their deaths were sad it didn't hit me to hard since we barely knew them :/

My biggest question is how are they going to explain it to te teacher...

Figured they'd both commit suicide once it was reveal Kirigaya's identity was revealed.

I like how author established the storyline of this episode with close references to Romeo and Juliet. It's nice parody and rendition of Shakespare's play in itself like how Tybalt going againist Romeo with so many ironies are also included. I like these sort of witty plots a lot. That was really nice and my favorite episode so far in this series.

edit: The ending lyrics were pretty ironic and was so meaningful too. Yeah this episode gotta be my most favorite episode so far. Oh by the way what's the answer to this week's riddle: "You can find _ on pretty floıwers". Since flower might refer to Hitsugi my guess is that sweet people like Hitsugi might be "poisonous". Even though they look sweet outside just like flower but their torn might kill you. Correct me if I am wrong. That would be appricated thanks ^^/)

only thing I don't like, Kennmochi got kicked out, now we'll never know what's her fighting style.

Decent but disappointing episode. That evil loli was good though.

The episode dissappointed me because they got rid of 3 assassin girls in just 1 episode especially one of the best ones, Chitaru. They gave glasses girl no time at all and just ended her life. So not cool. I knew they will eventually have to do this but come on, they should have eliminated at most 2 girls in one episode 3 is too much.

Honestly, this is the best episode I've watched this week (besides the Saturday line up). All I keep saying is wow for 10 minutes after I watched the ending. Sometimes just an average can produce some fantastic episodes. Oh the irony.

No~! D: The 2 girls, Chitaru and Hitsugi are gone! D: They were so cute together as well....dang. :/
It's sad to know that Chitaru joined the Black Class to kill Angel Trumpet, and later she found out that Hitsugi was Angel Trumpet!! D: No~! D: Tragic....

Chitaru was "forced" to kill Hitsugi and Chitaru killed herself by drinking poison....
Damn...tragic indeed. :(
