Good ep with a nice setup. I hope the game with the Warbeasts starts soon. 4/5

I'm not a fan of the show but this episode was quite good. Maybe it's a turning point.

Steph sure did cry a lot, maybe a little too much?
The warbeast that would erase memories for formidable foes, but imanity isn't one of them.
I liked how Sora deciphered the previous king's intention. Always for the best of humanity just like what Steph does.
Jibril is quite funny ^^
Good episode, great build up for the next ep.

Hmm, I feel like nothing was achieved in this episode which also made the episode feel incredibly fast.
It wasn't bad neither extremely good but well yeah... more progress next time hopefully :3
I'm not a manga reader, so when i watch an anime, i only consider the "quality" of the series from it's story and visual, effects etc... i don't care if people think a certain series is bad compared to it's manga when i haven't read that.

This episode just made realize the king is the best character in this show. He went beyond the fact that he was not the person meant to make his own race great and by accepting this he went on to take the biggiest gamble of his life. To make the biggest fool out of himself and lost countless battles just to make the other races think his race is inferior. Then hold a gambling tourtument to determine the next king by a game of gambling. It isn't sora winning these battles it's the former king. If I could watch the story of how the king carried out his will I would definitely find it more interesting than this show. Imo plus I could see his legendary porno stash!

Well but if Sora and Shiro hadn't won the tournament then what he gambled on, that there is a human that can win against the other races, wouldn't have turned out good ;-)

Ah and something for the people still calling this wish fulfillment. How is something wish fulfillment when the main char says about himself that he is trash? Imo that contradicts the very definition of a likeable and perfect protag...

Bro, I would actually like to see that but... this anime already exists so it would kill the ending of the will of the king if that was ever made into an anime.... So don't use if.. If that IF is never going to happen.

Hmm, maybe because so far the MC is still quite OP by winning all the games pretty easily, has two girls all over him (not counting the imouto), and it's not like he completely think that humanity is trash since he also believe in "human's potential".
And is it that bad to have your favorite animu called "wish-fulfillment" anyway?

Episode 7 is... okay, I guess? I admit that Jibril's slideshow about the warbeast is pretty well done

Really excellent episode following what was possibly the best episode yet from last week.

We were given a lot of info, and all of it was much needed. Glad we got some back story to Sora and Shiro. But what I like about it was that they only gave us a little, and they're still keeping their pasts' a mystery.

The previous king's work was really interesting and actually quite smart. Good for Steph that the man she believed in was definitely useful.

More awesome references too! Doraemon and Evangelion. The Eva one made me laugh out loud. That was so great.

Another fantastic episode. 10/10

I wonder how this show will wrap up though, if it's only 12 episodes?

The king is making a huge gamble, and is hassling the other race by acting the fool. Regardless of how much slander he will receive, you have to give the king some respect.

For a transition episode this was brilliant. The character development was solid, the info-dumping didn't even feel like info-dump, and the foreshadowing was handled with care.

Jibril is a fun character, I'm enjoying her input in the group dynamics. She even jumped on board the "dump on Steph" train there in the beginning, but it all works out in the end. Steph's tears of happiness FTW!

Kind of saw the old King not losing his memories, and not being a fool, coming a mile away. But, still, it played out well.

I'll give this episode 9/10
Odds are I'm not going to find my way back to a thread after my first post, it happens on occasion but not often. So, if I say something that offends you and you feel the need to force your opinion on me because obviously everyone should have your opinion or none at all, feel free to post it in the thread that I'll probably never see again. However, if you are interested in intelligent discourse, feel free to message me.

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.

There definitely going to be more seasons because Soro still has to actually capture another race...right...right guys..?

That fan service in the start....yes!
Bath scenes for the win! x3

Ermm....Doremon reference? owo

Anyways, pretty great episode. Nothing much, except how the ending where the old king showed the future king why he forced himself to lose the games....and his land.
So, with that in mind, looks like the War Beasts are the next target~! x3
The preview....cute wolf girl! x3

Oh! When they were flying to the skyscraper building.......PANTY SHOTS!
YES! Upskirts for the win! xD

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.
Thing i like the most about Sora is exactly his voice lol.Couldn't think of better choice for his character.

Good Doraemon reference in this episode.

So, that's how Shiro met Sora...not bad. I really want to see more of Shiro's and Sora's past.

The previous king was a brilliant man that deliberately allowed his opponents to trick him and make them believe they truly deceived him in order to find their weakens. Smart King.

Great episode!!!

A good deal of back story was provided by the conversation between Kurami and the Elf. Right now they seem to be co-conspirators, the Elf was helping Kurami who in turn was going to help the Elf save her race from the War Beasts (which makes sense since both seem to have lost a lot of territory to them recently, and both think that old, senile leaders were to blame). They both seem to be friends (if not more) as well, though I will be curious to see what happens when they no longer share common goals.

I like that Kurami refuses to consider that a human could defeat her without magic; contrary to what many of the critics here think, that isn't a sign of a "stupid" character, rather it is the most likely explanation given the world as she knows it. This seems to be a general problem with most of the criticism here, all the critics think that the characters should "act like them". Since Elves are only ranked 7th and Warbeasts are ranked 14th, even IF the Sora beats the Warbeasts then there are still other races who could be helping Sora. The really curious question is how have the Warbeasts at 14th, beaten the elves at 7th four times in the past several years, this points to the conclusion that "Ms. Shrine Maiden" is the key to their sudden prosperity (it also explains why both Kurami and the Elf think that they are involved).

Small scene, but it provides a lot of detail. It also again shows that Kurami is a human patriot (I loved that she was practicing apologizing to Steph in secret), but being a product of this world cannot believe that a human can win on their own.
