Yep... I've repeated it a lot of times,... Day 19, is the game 'Go?', I've speculated that a higher rank interrupted the game or it is Tet.. xD (I just don't get to why why Day 19 is important.. xD
This just proves my deductive skills ain't that good enough... But still thanks! I'll put myself into deeper thinking


The game is othello (or reversi), not go, only bringing this up because go is a different game (and far more complex). Small tidbit is that I used to play othello a lot as a kid and never knew it was invented in japan until much much later; then again I didn't know that the transformers was Japanese until I was an adult as well. Shows how provincial (i.e. American) my upbringing was!

Speaking of which, my first exposure to "beastgirls" was Thunder Cats (ah Cheetara!), so this isn't something new :-)

I think the only importance of the 19th is that it tells us that Shiro has missed a day (since her tablet says the 21st).

The warbeasts make people forget things, now everyone has forgotten someone. That seems like a very strong connection to me. Why is the better questions.
Religion is regarded by the common people as true, by the wise as false, and by the rulers as useful.

Their memories (except Shiro's) were probably tampered so you'd think it's probably the Warbeast guys but why do I get the feeling that Kurami and the elf girl are the perpetrators here? Sora's probably already aware of what was happening and for all we know, there's probably already a game on the way with the conditions affecting Shiro and company. Must have something to do with othello? They wouldn't zoom in on it if it wasn't relevant...maybe.

Well I am not a reater (reader + cheater, SAO joke, you know I love you all), so I can only guess. But personally I think that far from Sora being taken away and everyone's memory altered, wouldn't it be easier if Shiro was spirited away? Then no one's memories would have to be altered.

Anyway, I think that Shiro is being given her chance to shine, which would be fine with me, she is by far the most undeveloped character, so giving her a chance to prove her mettle would be a good plot development.

True- it's more efficient in letting Shiro be the one transported away- giving the name "Fake End."

So the Warbeasts doesn't have mind reading abilities. Izuna was so cute. Though I like Shiro more. It really is thanks to the previous king that Sora has figured out the Warbeast's tactics. I got goosebumps when top scores showed up behind Sora and Shiro.
What happened to Sora? Disappearing like that. Promising to Shiro and all.

Things got really good! This never disappoints me.

Wow. That was truly amazing—the explanations—no, the entire episode was fantastic; surprising me each and every week. Sora disappearing at the end had me utterly confused. Maybe he somehow went back to the real world or the game has begun since he was talking about getting the "Final Piece".

Sora's disappearance is probably part of the game or like Jubril said earlier episode it requires a lot of energy keep the two in this world, maybe that is failing.

Amazing episode.

I love Jibril's reactions and comments :3. Her quarrel with Hatsuse was so damn funny.

His interaction with the werebeasts was hilarious and awesome.

And wow, dat ending was just... How am I supposed to wait another week!?

Quite a coincidence that they call video games "video games" in the other world as well, if you know what I mean. Just when I came to like Sora and Shiro combo... Seriously, sometimes their "OPness" is too OP for me.

But I am glad that they are including Dora and Jibril in their games. Yet again, I am watching this show for the characters other than main duo. This episode proved how selfish they can be that they will go as far as betting other peoples' lives for their own purposes. Sure these purposes aim for a more national advantage. Sure they are gonna win and sure once they do, they will be considered almighty but I can't take it. Count me out of the "They are so coo!" group. Maybe, I too began to think that way too but not anymore.

8/10 for the overly done 'we know it all'. I did like the last scene and the ED without Sora. Looks like he is planning something.

Why must people always nitpick so much? Though I agree, this show can be considered both be plot driven and character driven.

Sora disappeared? I guess since it seems that only Shiro can remember him, it is some kind of game where Shiro has to find him or something... now who is he playing such a game with? especially considering even shiro isn't aware of said game... and what are the bets? geh, now I want to watch the next episode xD

Since I was expecting a full game, thought this episode was--though coupled with some laughs here and there (8:14 gets me all the time)--pretty meh, until... That. Fucking. Cliffhanger.

Once again, looking forward to the next episode. Pretty sure this week would feel longer than other weeks, though...

Also, loving Jibril more and more.

Loved that cliffhanger, and the thing they did with the ending. And i believe that what happened at the end was that the warbeasts couldnt have shiro telling anyone about the game, so they had to erase everyones memories of him until the game is finished. But thats just a theory. I haven't read the manga.

That Conan reference! And that Yu-gi-oh reference!!

It will be interesting to see them apart, but I can pretty much call every possible outcome from it, so it won't really be that interesting after all.

I hope it really is a video game, would mean I've got more chances of figuring the game out which I usually don't.

Not wanting to give off any kind of major spoilers, let's just say that everything that is happening is..... planned!!

If you really don't care for spoilers, and want a few tips (not the spoilers per say, but some clear clues) of what is happening, then click here


Spoilers, Spoilers!! Next episode you will all find out, so until then, please present your theories.
(Of course those who have read the LN must be extremely careful not to give too much info - for example I only used the data everyone knows so far, never really saying what really happened)

7/10 ok episode.

Sora discovered how the warbeasts were always able to win; they cheat but since video games and cyber space is unknown to other races the warbeasts can cheat all they want without getting caught.
Now if Sora leaves and tells the elves, for example, about this the warbeasts will be exposed and will not be able to have easy victories.
The warbeasts are now in a position where they HAVE to accept Sora's challenge and try to win to erase his memories. Basically he cornered them.

That's pretty much the gist of what happened. Other than that, specifically what happened to Sora, I have no idea either.

Ponder on this situation. If he kept saying they were late, if he said he was waiting for something not from Eastern Federation, but instead from someone with more backbone, and if he said that he was getting the final piece.... what did he meant?


Actually, to me, it seemed like he was talking about "someone with more backbone than the protesters", and noe about someone with more backbone than the EU.


So - "Let the people who don't have the guts to challenge us whine all they want."
"More importantly they are late. It's been a week."
St - steph goes and taks about how it takes time to prepare for the bet for the EU's entire continent.
So - "Yup. So before that... I'm waiting for someone with more backbone."
"They are finally here"

That's roughly what was said. (I pretty much skipped Steph's part, to show how what Sora said can have double meanings).

That's why I said this was a clear clue for understanding what was going on... plus, it's funny to play with theories this way, someone throws a decisive clue, and everyone must try to figure out what that clue means...

Also I edited the message so the clues would stay inside a spoilers tag in order to avoid teasing those that do not wish to be teased, it's bad to just throw the clues for those that do not wish to know....

Ultimately, all we're doing is saying what already happened. You're not getting teased much, by getting what you already saw repeated, hell most people, who don't want to get spoiled, don't even come onto these forums.

5/5

Epicness in its pure state, it seems to see a lucid madness.
Plot that does not lose the enamel seen from the beginning, the story is hilarious and at the same time deadly serious.
The drawings, however, fell in several places, I hope Madhouse remake them from scratch in the BD version.
Very fitting the new ending, who knows what will happen eventually.
This episode has amused me very much, I can not wait to see the next episode.

Izuna is so hilarious and cute!

ahahaha you are probably missing a point dude... I know what really happened so I'm the one who wants to tease those who don't know...

So I'm trying my best to help allow those who don't know to create their theories, that's why I tried not say much, but, after reading all the pages of this thread I understand that most people either want spoilers, clues for understanding, or are just biting their nails trying to figure out the situation..

All the spoilers that follow were already said before on this thread, so if you join them with the clues I gave from before, a solution is clear:



If even joining all the clues from before you are still unable to understand, and you really want some true spoilers, then open this bracket (DO NOT OPEN THE FOLLOWING BRACKET UNLESS YOU ARE WILLING TO ACCEPT TO KNOW WHAT REALLY HAPPENED):

The ending left me dumbfonded though. IT WAS SUCH A GOOD EPISODE.
POOR SHIRO. THE ED made a huge impact on me. It wasn't that necessary but necessary at the same time since it just tells how import shiro/sora's relastionship are.
Can't wait for the next episode-
