THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Ah it's Izuna...

Her voice is okay I guess. And of course, she is made fun of somewhat by the siblings lol. Oh Shiro, you so funny with the detective gimmick. On the other hand, Sora is confident as ever. CHECKMATE. I like how the two siblings have a lot of trust in each other though. Let the games begin. Holy shit, I wasn't expecting that ending.

Anyways, Steph doesn't know what or who Sora is anymore. Oh boy. On another note, I think the anime did the details well for Elchea.

That ending, wow!!! As someone who hasn't read it, I wasn't expecting that at all. I love how they changed the ED as well to match. Wasn't sure if that was just the stream at first...

Start of volume 3 of LN: A Half of the Gamer Siblings Seems to Have Disappeared...?

I remember voice actor for Izuna and her cuteness max.
Well, the game has start now and I can guess this game is about looking for Sora and it seem like he knew this will happen.
I probably going to pick up this LN since I'm a bit curious what is going to happen.
Oh, that ED!! No Sora in there. :P

Loved the "Quiz Show" format when they were answering the questions, not sure if it was one specific show since for me most of them run together.

Excellent move at the end, you have the idea that Izuna is going to become Shiros first friend, so it is good time that Shiro stop being pretty much a blank and become more of a character. They started this during the episode with her answering more, so I expect more next episode.

I have to listen to the English on this one to get what is going on, but I have a feeling that the warbeasts just don't know how bad they screwed up there with that move.

Excellent move with the ED.
That made so much sense it was nearly scary, still I wouldn't have expected it even though I knew what happens in the LN ;-)

Especially things like that make it worthwhile to watch things animated instead of just reading them ^^

EDIT: @elior1 The ED pretty much shows what happened ;-) but obviously not the why

Izuna's voice was what I expected from Sawashiro Miyuki. Perfect choice.
And checkmate already before the game even began. Warbeast have no choice but to accept the game. And yeah, Sora is definitely not right in his head. This will get emphasized even more.
And welp, never expected that they would even use the ED to emphasize this weird situation that happened. Brilliant move. Fake End definitely like the title of the episode.
Start of volume 3 next episode. Prepare for a wild ride.

This episode was just wow.

First off Izuna is so cute!! Funny how she adds please at the end of sentences. Then my boy Sora calling out the werebeast on their mind reading trick. Damn so they really couldn't read mines. That ending took the cake. WTF happened to Sora? Who was he talking to? Why is Shiro the only king? So many questions I need to be answered. I don't want to wait till next week T_T!

Great episode 5/5!

Sora disappears.
Wow even though it was just them talking its so exciting.
I like how it teased a little about the game next episode before he disappeared.
I really hope this has season 2 when more of the original comes out.

Now i am very confused, there are many things that are bothering me.

1st, who the heck is Sora talking to before he vanished? I thought he was talking to Clammy Zell.

2nd, why the heck did Sora disappeared? Is it part of his game plan? or is it just to make Shiro stronger?

and 3rd, Who the heck in his right mind will bet other lady's pantsu. LOL.

P.S i dont read the LN/VN or whatsoever of this anime.

EPIC episode :D

Gotta love Jibril. The way she was making fun of Warbeast and Ino was lol XD The grudges are hilarious XD

"Kininarimasu" Chitanda!! Is that u XDXDXD

Izuna's gap moe and her liking the touches from the perverted siblings was kawaii <3 She's tsundere for their skills. "Who told u to stop" XD

Ino is so lol. Like a doting father XD

"Play a game with me with the prize of ur Granddaughters panties. I'll bet Steph's" XD "Or would u like Shiro's? U're sick old man XD Or Mine?! I'm not gay" XD

The way Sora and Shiro Checkmated Ino and Izuna to play them betting their species piece and the intimidation they showed was AWESOME!!! Ino just shat his pants XD Kuuhaku is BOSS!!!

Their self confidence is so friggin amazing! Video games! BRING IT ON!!

Lol at Shiro and Sora pitying Tet for how boring this world is without them XD

The last scene was done so friggin well!! RESPECT BASED MH!!! The way Sora was leaving his last words to Shiro and his trust in her was so emotional

And even making the ED all glitchy was awesome.

The post-credit part was really sad :( Poor Shiro. No one remembers Sora. Can't wait for the nxt ep. Should be awesome showing the strong bond between these siblings :D

AND DAT OST is just too good >.<

That was truly epic. Gosh, it had me at the edge of my seat for almost every sec.
That explanation about the warbeasts is truly fascinating. I didn't expect almost all of it.

And why would they forget about Sora? Damn... next episode, doku desu ka?!

Ah Shit the Epilogue wasn't expected and what they did to the ED without Sora was too awesome move.. It's EPIC!!!

Poor Shiro she's all alone now her Onii-chan was not by her side now... And Sora had like "Take her Soul Away" with him... She really should be gotta strong now... Damn it!!! Can't for the next episode next week!!!

If someone still are confuse just like me... I'll make guess on what happened... And P.S. I don't have read the LN or Manga yet.

Izuna is really cute! The grandfather getting mad xD
Sora managed to see through everything about the warbeasts.
The earlier bet for panties! Wow, Sora is betting his entire race towards this. All or nothing... Sora's four rhetorical questions were great!
The stake is high for both sides!!!
Sora disappeared... Shiro all alone without her brother. It was somewhat sad to see Shiro crying over Sora's disappearance. His whole existence is forgotten except for Shiro!?!
Idk what will happen next in the next episode, may be some sort of rescue mission for Sora? The bet would had to be delayed or is it part of a big conspiracy. I can feel that there will be lots of feels next week between Blank!

Sora is so badass. I would be scared shitless by how he challenged that old man. I really like how the antagonist feels like he can outsmart the MC but then comes back with an even more badass move. I will finally try reading the LN now since there's more translations.

They did a great job with animating the entire betting of the Race Piece! The excitement during that segment was great!

What they did with the ending credit was nice.

Yep, I am expecting the "the MC is too awesome, that he knew that the Warbeasts couldn't mind read was SOOOOOO predictable, the writing here is SOOOO weak, he just makes Sora know everything and everyone is SOOOOO stupid that they just play into his hands".

I figure the over/under on something like this is about 20 posts.
