That was really quite the episode. I wonder how long it took to think that up.

Loved how they opened the episode. And loved Sora's mind game. He's sort of a genius! :D
But that ending freaked me out, though! I'd have killed myself if Sora turned out to be a creep'o! ;_;

Let's take over the animal world now! It's about time!

Not sure how this show is going to wrap up in 12 episodes!

I'll be honest there was a lot going on here that was hard to keep up with at times (for me, I couldn't stay focused). But it all came together in the end :) Still getting Code Geass vibes from Sora...

So it was not what I thought... :/ They are still in this world...
Both episode 8 and 9 were not the best ones from this anime, they were different. It is not bad, but some things were not explained enough for me... Maybe I should read the novel then?

I hate it when anime/manga that I enjoyed ends, especially when there could be much longer plot and when I love main heroine :P

I wish I had magic glasses that let me see real world in anime colors ;)

That is interesting. Most people thought this episode was a nice change from the usual, myself included. However, I will agree with you it was not explained quite well enough. The whole Othello game was very complex and I still do not fully understand how Shiro is able to participate. That and the whole memory trading deal.

I don't understand.

If the final goal is to just get Kurami to trust in Sora and help him out, why didn't Sora just make that as the result if he won? Why goes through the huge trouble of risking his existence???

lol at the backstory at the beginning. It's like they chose such a Mary Sue-ish backstory on purpose.

Also, this show is not winning any extra points by making retarded meme references.

What an amazing episode the concept for that game was amazing!!! The fact that he had absolute trust in his sister is epic. This episode made this amazing show stand out even more. The most beautiful part was the three most important things, more important than his own existence. The way to win the game, His absolute trust in his sister, and everything I am <3

That episode was intense. Trying just as hard as Shiro did to figure out what was gong on. Impressively done. From what I have seen in the comments it says that the LN goes into greater lengths. Interesting, might have to check that out

I just finished this episode and the previous one and holy hell, that was intense. The beginning of the episode starts and I am already getting worked up. And that ending was a great way to play with my emotions. Geez, That's one emotional roller coaster that I am not ready to experience again soon, but I probably will end up returning to rewatch this one.

Tbh this was a pretty slow ep, it seems that NGNL is awesome mainly thanks to Sora's charismatic personality, Shiro wouldn't be able to hold it as well just with her cuteness :c

Probably the worst game so far, but now we have Elf and purple girl at our side, yay! Kemonomimi land next!

Ugh, rewatching this episode and I still feel so moved by Sora and Shiro's bond. I can't get enough of this anime. This is one of my favorite anime duos of all time.

Rewatching it this week, I was starting to feel a little bitter towards them because of the way they mistreat the others around them, but I had to remind myself they were ostracized and rejected by society so of course they are hostile towards others. I think they're relationship is so special and this episode pinpointed the heart of why.

I wanna say, "I can't wait to see what happens next" but I've already watched this anime over the summer!

Shiro says he does not accept losing and moving troops
~> Shiro's flag is white and is Jibril's turn (black).
It was obvious that the black moon was shining like a white king then ~> Shira lost
=> That chessboard is not good

This was a pretty cool episode, with Shiro working with Steph and Jibril to slowly figure out what was happening. That game of theirs was definitely interesting, would've liked more to see what was going on, but seeing Shiro's side of things was cool too. Not to mention Sora's top 3 pieces! The colouring effects really was some nice detail that fit in really well, especially considering last episode's ED. Seems like this makes Clammy and Fiel join up with our protags (who definitely are protags of a shounen series lol). I guess we have a couple episodes left to take over the Eastern Confederation but ... obviously we won't get through challenging Tet eh? :P I guess that's to be expected though XD

Sora is indeed insane for gambling something like this! But hey! taking risks is what makes them having fun!

Super interesting episode. I wasn't sure what to expect. He just disappeared! But it was great. Just don't know how they are going to become god in 3 episodes but I can't wait to see.

That sure is trippy! This episode clearly shows how familiar Shiro is with Sora. She knew what would Sora do even if she almost doesn't have any memory of him or even know EXACTLY where the game board is.

Also, it's already mentioned that Sora and Shiro are not blood-related before but the past was finally told to the audiences. Seemed like Shiro has been experimented on...

Now I guess they have all the pieces to begin the complete world domination!

So they're not blood related? She was adopted.

Eh? I will never win that game, I'll be trapped like Saito in limbo in the movie Inception. >_<

This anime is such greatness
I really wonder what the game will be
And now I am not sure that they will fight the god in the next 3 episodes that would be waaay to rushed

Sora is a terrible protiganist, he's totally unrelateable. How can anyone relate to someone who never loses, is always perfect but is also arrogant. Hate him so much honestly. How they keep winning isn't even believable, just total ass pulls.
