----------------------------------------
Suzu's turn this week huh?

I noticed she treats this like a game at the pools. I actually kinda like her style though and this episode really did feel like a game with the clock ticking.

On another note, I find their teacher to be almost laughable. I find Suzu's ED song nice though.

That was a nice chapter owo
That underwater kiss from Haru and Tokaku was nice
Highlander syndrome? Inmortality? It kinda let me down her real motivation, but whatever...

Why they have to kill the Haru in such a fancy way? Can't they just shoot her?

Sensei is so laughable, he just wants to be nice

6/10 this episode.

Ep 5 and 6 are still the bests

All the Kurogumi class thing are just like a game, and the fact that everybody are assassin is no longer a secret...
...even Watamote won't make me cringe so bad, this episode is more like a game than before...

...I suddenly have a new guess, maybe the teacher is indeed a normal guy, but being subconsciously controlled or something, to make him do anything such as giving Tokaku a clue about the code, and he doesn't know that...

Tokaku was blushing for the first time and why does the teacher don't feel anything weird about transfering stuff.

1. Haru kissing tokaku underwater was kinda hawt I guess

2. Another generic episode. Only thing keeping me going is the yuri

3. series should've focused on a few assassins so development can happen instead of 10+ girls. not feeling anything for the assassins atm

4. glad that the teacher is not the main hero. seeing him constantly say "i'll protect u" with his enthusiasm would be hell

6/10

There was a "transfer" of air kiss!
So Shutou never aged and is from probably the late 19th century?
The riddles were pretty interesting especially the "something valuable one", I thought that was time but turns out to be a card or life.
The password 0715, the birthday of the boy she loved, Shutou is quite softhearted to use it.

It definitely was an awesome episode. I think I can guess at her age(she's got freaking immortality and eternal youth) she was born in the Meiji period which was from September 1868 to June 1912. So assuming that it's 2014 in the anime Suzu could be anywhere from 146 to 102 years old.

I'm taking this guess because she wore a kimono and her friend wore a suit which was more common during the Meiji period and the fact that picture and animation was sepia/black and white proves it.

This was definitely a good episode.

Banba made the episode, I giggled throughout the whole episode. Uh, yeah, and the kiss was okay ish. Haru could have easily opened the cage and let Tokaku out faster, so, free will kiss? Tokaku did look a bit dazed, but still.

I definitely agree with that statement.
The lack of character developement is really making my wish to sympathize the tragic stories of the assassins fade away.

The answer of this riddle was quite easy.
I was confused by Tokaku's reaction when Haru hugged her. Although they slept in the same room until now, did Tokaku nothing with Haru? I got shocked.

What... it was never implied she was doing anything with Haru. Where did you get that impression?

Suzu was always my favorite, and this definitely made me feel for her more. It's sad that she has to leave now... But she was the one who got the closest so far!

The air transfer was nice, and unexpected. After NGNL I guess that this was just the week for kissing!

I'm going to say that Banba will be next, but I kind of hope she sticks around...It might be Hanabusa next...but I kind of hope its Isuke next because she kind of annoys me...

That kiss <3 And Suzu's backstory was pretty sad, i feel sorry for her. ;;
So i think we all already know whose turn next week from the preview and the next episode's title, yeah? :D Really can't wait for next ep.
I don't follow any of the threads that i'm in.

That freaking teacher I still think is the biggest mystery around here lol.

So Suzu is after Haru's ass this time around.

I guess Suzu's condition is pretty sad but I'd take never aging or w/e her condition is over growing old and dying any day of the week.

Holy crap! A kiss!

Well another failed attempted assassination.

I wish Horriblesubs would just write -san instead of Miss X since they are using -chan :/ it's not something convertable so might as well not translate.

That was pretty sly to invite them to a trapped area and as Nio said was a fun change to the gameplay.

Like "Danganronpa", this show really could have used some episodes just introducing the characters so that viewers could actually feel some slight attachment to them before they are gone forever.

Banba earned a good 3/5. Otherwise this episode was beyond dissapointing. Everyone will focus on the yuri though,meh.

I know that characters wishes have something to do with the riddle of the week but this was a bit hard to solve for me since I am not feeling well. So what was the answer to this week episode's riddle by the way which is "What's it that you can never catch up to?". Since she is immortal or at least she can't age which is really convinent disorder for me by the way and I wish I also had this kind of disorder so that I would stay always young, so I thought "aging" would be answer or "the times". She can't age so she will be a person who would fell behind of times so I think catching up to times of the era would be kind of answer in my opinion but I am not sure either but I would also like to hear what you kindly denizens of forum think of too.

Next weeks riddle will be about two guardians who is protecting the gates of heaven. So since Mahiru is good gatekeeper who isn't lying and Banba is liar who protects her so I am guessing next week's episode will be about Banba because of her split personality which I can't wait to see it.

Of course they would have a swimsuit episode but that was a nice spin on things.

Also it seems like everyone else is actually forgetting that Ichinose is supposed to be killed cause all of them were hinting at where to find cards or not even get in Azuma's way.

Yes! xD

Ichinose chose a really adorable one~! x3 So cute. :3

So, Suzu's turn huh? Fun way to kill someone.....LOL! If that even sounded alright. xD Which I doubt. :3 Anyways....so she has some weird disease that makes her stay young? Immortality. o-o

Anyways! xD She's gone know....since Tokaku figured out most of the riddles, but Haru figured out the last number for the code! Woot! x3

Nice episode. :3

So it's a little fanservice episode, but a time bomb on Haru. TBH it made the clues so easy for Tokaku to follow. I did not expect a kiss from Tokaku and Haru underwater...

So it's Shuto's story, and reveals that she can't age up because of her illness. TBH A like her story though, but it could be better if it expanded her background better. Felt anti-climatic when Tokaku is about to die and Haru saving her, didn't feel the intensity on that part. Kind of laugh when Bamba gave sensei the finger XD.

Well at least the bomb is defuse, but Shuto had to go :(

Well, the riddle in raw was "永遠に追いこせないものは? (What's it that you can never leave behind?)". And, to tell the truth, she talked about the answer in her flashback.

「じゃが、いくら年を重ねても、わしは変わらぬわしのまま。そのお方だけがわしを追い越し、大人になっていった。」
"However, although time passed, I was still in my age that never changed. Only he left me behind and he grew to an adult."
(Sorry. This is my translation. I don't know any sub about it.)

Therefore, I guess the direct answer is "him (her lover in the past)" or "his age" or "his times". This was also linked to the answer "0715" (his birthday) about the bomb trap. I think the answer of this week riddle had not been generalized. It was a personal riddle about Shutou Suzu.

Banba is her surname. Haha.
Mahiru: 真昼 (midday)
Shinya: 深夜 (the middle of the night)
I personally think Mahiru is more evil than Shinya, although Shinya behavior looks powerful.

Judging by clothes in the flashback, that girl's probably just over 100 years old. Was she always in the show, though? I never noticed her before. What's the point in giving these characters sad backstories when you barely even show them prior to their episode? I don't recall her even having a single line.

Really good episode. Toka has a nice cartoon butt. And I feel really bad for that teacher. He thought he was doing something good by wishing her a happy birthday, and she'll be gone the next day. He's totally gonna blame himself now.

mmmm... i smell a tiny scent of yuri

anyways, i like how Suzu made her attempt a game with riddles (I feel bad that i didn't know the answers except for the last one)

for some reason, it feels like the teacher plays a very important part like he's actually an assassin or something but he's still my favorite character
I am currently breathing passionately on you trachea.
