THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Shinya is awesome :3 I like her other personality tbh.

On another note, Isuke makes her move. Like some of the other girls, her past wasn't very bright. Damn, a pretty intense episode. Azuma vs. Isuke caught most of my attention. Bamba/Shinya's ED song is alright I guess. Well coordinated with her movements.

This is a two-part episode. It has to be. When I was watching the episode *Since it was raw when I was watching* I thought Isuke's father(Or...Mother. I don't even know anymore) looked like Kaiba.

Am I the only one who thinks that? O_O

Best episode so far,
the first time that two assassin take action at the same time,
the first time that we have to wait for the next episode to see what will happen.

Banba is quite the psycho; just another typical assassination attempt ep

This was an intense episode, the storm is definitely brewing up.
Shinya freaks me out, kind of like Takechi.
Isuke is going full out with those knuckles with side mounted blades.
I would like to see Tokaku with duel wielding knives.
It was a big mistake to leave Ichinose like that.
Shinya knocks the door out with the assassinatio notice, sticked on to a huge sledgehammer.
Poor Ichinose =/.

Not really, I think he kind of resembles Kaiba too.

The close combat scene was intense. How did Isuke managed to hit Tokaku!
I wasn't expecting for two assassins to work together!
Isuke's actual parents... and her adoptive parents. Killing for money.
That different name for the notice! Wow, Bamba's weapon is a huge sledgehammer.
I would had looked through the window and a gory scene would had happened :O
How will they escape this situation now. Tokaku limiting her abilities by not being able to kill!

I was watching a random Yuru Yuri episode before this so hearing a Toshinou Kyouko deranged killer version was really weird. Didn't know Yukarin could do that kind of voice :o

Finally after 8 weeks I've finally found an episode I really like. There is hope.

Oh yes! Isuke and Shinya gang up to assassinate them!
I've been waiting for Shinya/Banba to show up with her hammer! I just love Shinya's character so much. So badass and spicy! I don't want her to die lol but too bad there will be no assassins that will make it alive isn't?

Wonder what's gonna happen next. Will Tokaku fuckin make it to save Haru??!

I need an instrumental version of that ending song :) when?

Banba-chan <3 about to go ham

Isuke was abused by her parents and was "saved".
Her parent that is an assassin she calls mama and the normal guy, papa, who doesn't know that they're assassins.

The storm will play a part in all this, Banba or Isuke falls of the building because of the strong winds? or slips to their death? :O

Taken from last week's discussion.

"Myozunitonirun, post:30, topic:9179" said:

There are only 5 assassins left (counting Azuma). There are only 6 episodes left. If they keep doing assassin of the week, and assuming Azuma doesn't try and kill Ichinose, all the assassins will be dead/gone by episode 11. This would mean that there is plenty of room to set something else up. However, Sumireko and Banba could get 2 episodes each, making the total episode count. I exclude Nio because I don't think she's going to try and kill Ichinose.



----------
Hmm.

Azuma said that there are only three assassins left meaning she doesn't consider Nio a target.

I'm definitely getting the sense of a plot twist.

5 episodes, 5 assassins.

------------

All of that is what I said on another site, but yeah, I'm really hoping for a twist.

I think someone other than Azuma will save Ichinose.

Pretty good episode! Iusuke is pretty cool when she gets serious! I like Banba so I'm glad she's still around for a bit. It looks like a two pronged assassination attempt. I wonder how it will turn out?

So Isuke's mama is actually a guy lol...I guess he plays the role of both mother and father...

Isuke was found by Inukai Esuke and adopted so she can succeed him it seems.

Time and time again Tokaku seems so weak compared to the others, since she can't kill them.

Oh great, like Isuke wasn't enough trouble, now Shinya is also onto Haru...

Shinya is a great character, when I heard the knocking on the door I was pretty sure it would be a bomb, I really wasn't expecting a huge sledgehammer, that is by far the best weapon used so far.

Banba is awesome. Damn i bet Nio is teh beast though. Part of Isuke's past, would love something more detailed ( i hope we get something ). 5/5 for Banba's hammer-dat girl is NUTS.

Also loved the Banba ending theme.

When I started this anime, I was watching it, but not with the awesome feeling. The last 3 episodes were like AWESOME! I'm getting the Fairy Tail (2014) feeling: GIVE ME THE DAMN NEXT EPISODE!
And this cliffhanger on the end of this episode: WOW! Didn't saw that coming. I can feel a nearby plot-twist. I think around Haru's personality.

That was an intense fight. I absolutely love Banba.
Finally, 2 assasins at one episode. Definitely my fav ep along with ep6.
I don't follow any of the threads that i'm in.

This show feels so flat, rushed and dull. I think its biggest problem is going to be the small episode count and the fact that the premise is still somewhat retarded. It's just some crazy bitchy lesbians trying to kill some cutesy other lesbians because of reasons. I mean we don't even know why the hell Sayaka even wants to protect Madoka in the first place. Was it really because of love (some inner monologues of Sayaka or at least something like that would be nice!) or just because she liked the way she does her hair or eats her lunch? Their "relationship" or "romance" - as the Yuritards love to call it - feels so corny and forced and I hate all the Yurifags praising it as the MOST AWESOME ANIME EVER!

The show also barely explains anything, the riddles get even more in the background, what were they about all along anyway? Was it just because they didn't have another name for the show? Because that's exactly what it seems. And the 2 minute edgy flashbacks make this show feel even more trashy than it already is, they barely excuse anything the characters do. The show reminds me a lot of Mirai Nikki or Deadman Wonderland which is not a good thing to be honest. I also couldn't care less about the characters, they all look the same except for the colors, are barely developed or fleshed out and just act crazy for the sake of acting crazy. But that's what the audience wants! That's the stuff doujins are made from, HELL YEAH! Plus Haru, Tokaku and the red-haired one with the Pocky's are just Madoka, Sayaka with a Homura personality and Kyouko from Madoka Magica who transfered into this city Akuma no Fiddle my Diddle takes place. Originality and stuff.

What I do like about the anime, though is the soundtrack which is probably among my favorites this season. I mean they even make a new ED theme for each character which got the spot light in that particular episode and the lyrics even fit their character for the most part too. That shows they at least tried to put some effort into it.

Other than that this episode was among the better ones thus far, finally it's shown that Sayaka can't always be at Madoka's site even though the sole reason why she even left the safe room in the first place is beyong my imagination. Plot convenience and stuff but having to sacrifice a characters credibility.

Banba finally gets her episode. I probably prefer Shinya over Mahiru since she is much more badass. I'm pretty happy that her arc didn't end in this episode since it is both her and Isuke attempting to kill Haru this time. Hopefully we get to see more of Banba's past next ep since she did mention Mahiru being locked away for a long time. Anyways, this ep gets a perfect score from me. The fights were really intense this ep.

Bamba ftw, but Nio's still best girl.Not a fan of Isuke tho, she's kind of annoying.
Now how will Haru survive, and will Tokaku kill Isuke? can't wait.

Wow! What an episode~! D:

So, Isuke did a cheap move by providing the letter to assassinate....but with a different person's name. D: Cheap, but sneaky. >:3
Anyways......Mahiru!
OMG!
She also sent a message to kill Haru.....oh crap! D: Not good....so now 2 people are after Haru's life...damn! D:
Intense episode, so can't wait for the next one~! x3

Only thing that picked my curiosity was why did Azuma leave Haru alone and went looking for Isuke. Wouldn't it make more sense to stick alone to Haru and guard her from near like she usually does?

This episode finally did something different, so I'm happy with it.

when i first watched the preview of this show i was so happy, finally a yuri without super romantic drama or stupid moe characters or ecchi. then i wondered who is the writer of it and oh no... it's kouga yun, the writer of "loveless".
loveless(manga) has a deep and growing story with characters that always surprise you. the premise was mysterious and well, people loved it BUT then kouga yun got lazy or lost her inspiration (or idk) story got just confusing and stupid and pages of the chapters decreased highly. i looked at some other manga of her and it's the same! she has a habbit of dropping the story! D: anyway loveless had an anime adoptation like akuma no riddle, only 12-13 episode and it ended with an open ending(naturally because the manga is long running serie and they probably just wanted to show people the manga). who could have imagined yun kouga would screw it later?
anyway since the main target of the akuma no riddle is different and they foreseed the manga of it will just get deeper and then confusing, i think they decided to do a mediocre action anime that at least has a proper ending :/ tho im just guessing all that with my knowledge of kouga yun and productors, i think that's the reason why this show is so flat.
oh btw i didnt read the manga since it's not translated but there is no "sending notices" in it fortunatelly.

this story is getting interesting... And I still believe Haru some secret that may be hinted next episode, since she'll have to defend herself.... (unfortunately it can however go through the "normal route" and we'll end up just having a internal fight between Shinya and Mahiru)
