Well, the anime didn't mention it...But there is additional rule about sexual activity, for example. If bloodshed is prohibited, then sex supposedly impossible. But actually "bloodshed" allowed if both parties accept it, so reproduction process is still allowed. more or less, that's how i remembered it.


As long as something is "consensual", meaning, that the party taking the infringement is fine with it, anything is possible (maybe even euthanasia).
However, the point stands, if they did lose, they would be able to do what they want, and get the same treatment from others. (just shows how narrowminded even the strongest beings are in that world, not figuring out, that they could theoratically do as they pleased if they lost their piece).

I just realized that Tet is voiced by one of my favorite seiyuus (Rie)
we need more episodes featuring Tet!

Trying to get caught up. This episode was good and that end was not something I was expecting.

This episode was much better than the previous one.
Lots of details too.
I have some theories about what's going on, but I'm too lazy to write them down. ^^
I almost never read discussions after I made my post, if you want to reply PM me or post on my profile page.

I don't think that they haven't figured it out, it's just that the 1st race to lose their piece will have all 15 other races against them at once. Since they would be the sole race not bound by the oaths, they would be a liability to everyone else, thus prompting the other races to all attack together.

The war prior to the ten oaths had no clear victor, meaning no one race is powerful enough to win. Thus whoever loses their piece would not be able to survive for long, not even Old deus. Even they wouldn't be able to stand up against the combined might of the other races.

It's risking everything for gaining only the ability to be violent, but also at the cost of being a victim to violence as well.

On top of which, if they lose their piece they'll forever lose the ability to ever challenge Tet's power. You can't regain that power if you lose your standing as an intelligent race.

Sorry, but that is only an assumption the races made.
It pretty much contradicts what we know of Tet.

What the fuck?

The glitching and greying actually creeped me out. And the malfunction ED. Creepy. Omg can't wait to see what has happened

I actually got creeped out earlier when Sora smiled and said "It's just a game, right?" Like, I had Christina's reaction. Maybe it wasn't the intention but it felt like he was playing with their lives because he treated everything like a game and he wasn't even from this world - the series could have taken a dark turn there with the main characters and eventually turned them into antagonists.

"Watashi Kininarimasu"... Get that reference?? xD
Izuna's seiyuu = Miyuki-sama???!
I didn't expect that.. Well, Neko Inumimi Loliii!!!

Wager = Pantsu!! "Noooo"

Yu-gi-oh reference detected!!
Those two are badass gamers, not even cheats could beat them.. I wish there are people like them IRL :)

I didn't expect that kind of ending.. I don't like this :(
Oh, next ep will be the most serious ep

Sora and Shiro are dauntless.
Betting all of Imanity's remaining territory, including the lives of all citizens in a game against the warbeasts.
Not only that, they're also brilliant, figuring so quickly the questions behind the warbeasts' gaming style. Thanks to the secret room that contains the former king's last note.
But then, Sora suddenly disappears.

And that "tv static" effect before Sora disappears and during the ending credits.

Wow, this sure was an intense episode, the first one to really make me interested with any besides humor. And no, it wasn't because of the ending, even that cliffhanger was overshadowed by Shiro's play earlier in the episode.

Good thing someone said about the ending on the first page... otherwise I would have skipped it fast to see the next episode.
Wow quite creepy xD...

Also I did not expect that from the ending!! What is going to happen ;-;

Very interesting development, I really wonder what his plan is or if he even existed at all! Really impressive! But damn that ED nice touch to the overall ending of the episode, together with a cute character appearing I wonder how the game will go!

Oh shit, what happened at the end, that sorta got me hyped for the next episode.

I really dislike Sora's personality, would love to see them lose for real with those heavy bets they're putting out.

Anyone catch the Hyouka reference? I guess it wasn't direct, but that reminded me too much of Chitanda when Jibril said, "I want to know!"

Very good episode. A yugioh reference was too good. Izuna was so Kawaii even her bad tongue. Sora showing why when It comes to games hes the master strategist. Blank never loses but Sora and poor Shiro.

That Hyouka pun and previously Doreamon
Unraveling the werebeasts secret was captivating

Not entirely sure what happened at the end with the scrambled ED added,
I think Shiro sacrificed himself somehow or went dark on a mission

Not loving the series yet disappointed it's only 12 episodes. At best they'll beat the warbeasts by the end of the season, quite the tease.
