THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Such a Steph~

It was awesome seeing Jibril though with Sora and Shiro now imo. Jiibril is such a spy tbh...although I find her quite useful with her knowledge of the world.
Overall it was a fast yet good build up episode imo as we enter a new arc soon. Steph and her tears....

Next episode looks like
will be introduced. I'm curious to see how this will be adapted.

Transition episode - so bear with.
Starts with enough fanservice to get the fanserhaters out in force - so far so good.
Jibiriru loving to torment Steph - check
Kurumi on the rebound - she is starting to power up intellectually - Check
Steph wears granny panties - confirmed
Another Ghibili reference - Nausicca this time - Check
More development on Sora's personality disorder - Check
A bit more background on Sora and Shiro and their relationship - check
Steph's grandfather, oh dear - knew that erohon joke was coming from the start. Must have been one hell of a guy in his younger/later years.

So the stage is set for warbeasts.

Overall haters going to rage how "boring" this episode was, elites will rage about the unnecessary fanservice and tentacle parody, so just another week in NGNL.

Jibril joined the party, so i guess it's going to be a harem pretty soon.

Not really unless your definition of a harem is "multiple females hanging around a male mc", then sure.

I find it hard to believe this plot can be wrapped up in 6 more episodes. It would be disappointing to not have a second season.

Jibril sure has a wild character.
Nice to see Kurami again and her thoughts on Sora & Shiro.
Steph needs to cheer up.
We got a background of the previous king.
Wonder how the game against the warbeasts will turn out, considering their abilities.

True but you gotta remember the LN is only up to like 4-5 volumes I think so it has high hopes for the future I think

Not a bad episode. Setting it up for the next challenge they will do. Nice Dragon Quest reference with the 'zoom' spell. I really in a mood to play one now. >.> Well I'm glad they answer some questions about Sora and why he trusts humanity so much and why Imanity lost so much territory and Steph's Grandfather wasn't as foolish as everyone thought.

Transition episode, I expected it and it was a good episode either way.
I'm looking forward to the next episode or should I say the next game. I hope it can match episode 6. This show will probably get a 10 from me.

Amazing adaption, really great build-up ^^ The emotions were depicted wonderfully :D Based MH ^^ AND DAT HYPING OST IS TOO GOOD >.<!!

Lol'd so much at the interrogation part XD What was that a reference for? Sora was hilarious in it XD

Loving Jibril more and more. She's such an awesome and fun character ^^ And the way she's realizing how humanity isn't as low as she thought was nice development. Lol'd at her love for battle and blood with how she was describing the battles of the past fighting Dragons and Gods while drooling XD
Also Loved her conversation with Sora about Shiro and how humanity has potential. Really nice stuff :) How she made Steph come to listen to their conversation was a nice move.

Lol'd at how Steph is still in denial about her love for Sora XD Poor Steph when Sora made her cry :( But I was really happy that she heard his full conversation with Jibril instead of the cliche running away in the middle of the talk while leaving it as a misunderstanding. And how cried from happiness after Sora praised her gramps was quite the FEELZ inducing ;_;

Sora's first meeting with Shiro was quite interesting. Damn, even I still can't believe how smart she was when she was 3 years old lol XD She owned Sora XD

Also lol'd so much at "There's no mistaking it! It's a porn stash" XD The way they solved the complicated puzzle so easily was lol. Great to see the king actually being such an awesome guy. Pretty much lived as an anti hero, making people think he's an idiot and a fool but in truth he gave them huge amounts of hope. Respect!

Nxt up...Izuna!! And Ino XD Can't wait :3

Oh and ofc...DAT Fan service before the OP *A* Steph's oppai pressing on Shiro was :3

This was a very solid transition episode (obviously it can't be epic like the other battles). Much better than the previous one before the Jibril encounter. While it didn't have the thrills of an edgy or mind-bending game, I thought that it did a lot to help with the characterization and development of the characters (especially Steph and the previous king) that gets a bit lost when it's only Blank going HAM on opponents. Also, Jibril just adds more onto the great comedic fanservice and I have no complaints about that. After seeing that preview, I'm pumped for the encounter with the Eastern Federation and girls with cat ears.

bit of a boring episode, the old kings voice was nice though really fits him, its a shame that stephs voice soon replaced his.
Hopefully things start to pick up and get a bit more serious

Not a single episode of this series disappoints me. It feels like everything has its balance; the comedy, stephservice, philosophy etc. Whilst not that great, it's entertaining nonetheless, and that's what truly matter most.
I can't wait to see what the old king deduced from his eight defeats. Truly a king worth mentioning in the anals of history; challenge your politician to do that!

No comment. Knew what was coming from the LN and since the adaptation is as good as an adaptation can get (at least from the adaptations I seen up until now) I have nothing to say about the epicness in the show...

I'm still having a bit of trouble trying to like Sora. Must be his voice; I really don't like his VA.

Anyway, good episode to set up the new challenge.

Ye, one question: Where exactly is stated that they didn't go to school in their past?

Well was a nice transition episode and covered everything and more than I hoped for :D

So the Warbeasts are actually a more fearsome race then expected which makes me wonder what kind of game they where playing against other races.
Something tells me it's a less complicated game then expected but i guess we will have to see next week.

That Elkia was the last country to challenge them wasn't that surprising, and Steph's reaction gave it away as well.

What i wonder about most right now is what Kurami is planning.
She seems to think something is up with the Warbeast and Sora.

I don't like Ino's design... I magined him, from the LNs as a 2.2m, heavily muscled beast-on-a-chain type of character. You know the kind... the ones that don't rip your throat out, only because it's againts the law.
And there were a handful of things I didn't like.
Like how they made Kurami appear again. The LN did it better!
Or how they didn't include the full length of the secret room's explanation.
Or how they twisted minor things about the scene there.

But those are minor gripes really...

Also, I'll point it out. The werebeasts can read minds.

Even Jibril is starting to reevaluate her opinion about Imanity (or at least about certain individuals). Kurami is still stuck thinking that Imanity is powerless without the help of the higher-ranked races. I thought the figurative smackdown Sora gave her would be enough, but apparently not.

This is how you make an adaptation, make the emotional impact harder visually. XD

Nope in the moment she is already at the turning point.

This is already indicated by how Fie said that Kurumi practices to apologise to Steph every day.
It is just that she won't just blindly trust Sora and what she thinks about is not shortsighted or dumb but an actual concern:
Sora just went out and beat one of the Flugel and then he tries to challenge a country against which the elves, one of the greatest countries in Disboard lost 4 times.
That is suspicious in itself. ;-)

EDIT: @GreenDrag Actually about Kurumi's appearance here, I like it more as in the LN, simply because we had more insight in her thought processes as in the LN and

I guess the wisest people is the most foolish person afterall.

Hahaha. This phrase has been through since the old times, where people who are smart as regarded crazy by normal people.

Totally loved this episode. Can't wait to see the knowledge of Steph grandpa has.

This episode was just a transition episode (still very awesome) so haters please don't complain how "boring" it is. This episode for shadows the amount of epicness that will be brought into the next episode. About how they finally figured out the secret behind Warbeast's game. Imanity has hope and the potential is infinite. Giving insight about Sora and Shiro's past confirmed (for me) that i've been guessing after watching the ending, that those two may not be actual brothers and sisters but met at an very early age. Other than that, Jibril acting all crazy and overly excited as she usually is and Steph as emotional as she always is. But through this episode i realised what Steph's grandfather has been working towards and what he hoped to achieve and now i have high respects for that guy. It really takes something to sacrifice everything you have including your life to believe in the potential of humanity and put your complete trust that there will be another heir to the throne that can bring Imanity (humanity) to become the #1 race and overcome Tet himself. This episode was definitely a 5/5 for even without much action its still plenty of awesomeness not to mention the amount of moe before the opening ^_^

the next episode *might* be interesting though (if they make it right, but i wouldn't be surprised if they made it like episode 6 (i think..?) and inserted a bunch of fan-service crap in the game
