Holy shit, this episode was tense. Puppets and a fancy room along with Hanabusa. I always thought she had this poker face on.

The episode surprised me though. She is much more skillful in combat than I had thought, putting Azuma in quite the danger. Damn, Hanabusa's battle outfit Her theme song is awesome imo. Probably the best so far.

Loved Sumireko's ending & she is terrifying omg, I guess no one saw that coming
Queen Bee is Haru, the worker bee is Tokaku.
Also, Haru seems to know exactly what she is doing to Tokaku, but cant seem to tell her because she is afraid.

What did I just watch...
Otoya is back, Hanabusa is a cybrog,
and Haru can be really truculent when it's necessary, that didn't surprise me, though

Awesome episode. Takechi was the one of the girls( except Kirigaya and Namatame ) that i was sure was dead. Thought Nio would have torn her to pieces. Anyway awesome episode, Haru isn't the" i wanna get along with everyone" girl anymore, which is great.Looking forward to learn about the true reason behind the Black Classroom. 5/5

Also the teacher is a naive one. I would love him to be the Mastermind behind this though.

Wow. Didn't expect Haru to do that O_O loved how she threw the grenades on her when she went for the elevator. And how she threw herself off with Hanabusa then kicked off her arm. Shit that was merciless XD not bad Haru. Mysteries intensify around her now.

And damn those puppets were creepy. Lol'd at the cyborg technology too XD

Takechi managed to break out from her confinement.
I can't believe they still managed to walk into a blind trap again, especially since Hanabusa was the only one left.
That was a nice setup though, the tea party with those puppets of transferred Black Class members.
Hanabusa is very good in combat with her prosthetic limbs.
Nio totally freaked the hell out of Takechi again.
Man, I can't believe Tokaku is still alive after getting smacked with a chandelier like that.
Haru was pretty smart to blow up the door they came in with an AT-4, in order to lure out Hanabusa.
The ending dissapointed me a bit though, how on earth did Haru manage to defeat Hanabusa so easily on the rooftop?
I guess her body was heavily damaged from the grenades Haru threw into the elevator shaft or something.

That was a surprisingly episode, go Haru for finally being not useless. So now we have 3 episodes left with no assassins? So that means Nio has to finish the job?

This is becoming like the yuri hunger games.

Hanabusa's sexy transformation completely surprised the hell out of me.

Haru I dare you not to break Tokaku's heart at the end of this.

that's simply the most amazing and beautiful thing i've seen in this rather dull show.. it finally went full retard/awesome in the best way possible.. the majesty and strength of Hanabusa's true form got all my attention and is definitely the one thing i won't forget in this show.. she may have not become queen, but she's definitely the queen in my eyes.. it was all just surprising that she's got all that terminator under that ojou-sama dress.. it's too bad that like space marines, what can defeat a cyborg is also falling damage (ignores toughness and armor).. Haru has some explaining to do (as expected)..

LOL Omg Hanabusa won against Isuke for being the most sexy being in this series. I seriously didn't think she would transform into a kill la kill outfit sexy cyborg. Anyway, this episode was intense. Seen sexy action and Tokaku's underwear lol

Wat da hell Otoya haven't you had enough trying to rape kill Haru?

Tokaku was already knocked out and she was more concerned with getting rid of Haru.

But yeah, her defeat was really dumb. It's one of the few things that were wrong in this otherwise good episode.

Wait what? I thought when someone fails she sure dies after. What's with Otoya coming back?
Well,I didn't expected the Ojou-sama to be a cyborg.
It would be really fucked up in the end Haru being the main antagonist and Tokaku realising that protecting Haru was a waste.
I really hope Nio wouldn't die,she's the most interesting.

That was crazy.

Pretty damn good episode. Love the action. Those puppets were creepy as hell. Sumireko looked sexy with that outfit on. Wasn't expecting to see Takechi ever again. Guess she kind of helped. Haru being called queen, what's up with that? I feel like she is an super killer, or assassin, or something. I mean she killed Sumireko. She clearly has the skills. I guess I will just have to wait and see.

Never underestimate Haru! I never believed she was as innocent as she seemed, she's seen, and done some pretty dark things, I wonder what they were though?

The scene with all of the characters at the party confused me because I know for a fact at least 2 of them are dead. But then it all made sense. Plus they brought back Takechi, it makes sense, since she was the most insane. But I wish they would have brought Shiena back so that she could get her own ending song too.

I wonder what's going to happen since all that is left now is Nio... She pretty much entranced Takechi with her body didn't she? I wonder what's up with her?

Also, Hanabusa was surprisingly awesome, she basically was the Terminator, except crazy and based around emotion, but her battle was probably one of my favorites in the series.

Hanabusa is goddamn scary 0_0
I thought she was going to set up a bunch of elaborate tricks and traps and make a maze or something. She set up a bunch of elaborate traps but in a completely different way to what I imagined. Crazy, sexy and scary bitch.
The characters just get more and more amazing as the series go on.

Haru is a pretty darn strong girl. She could probably fight against a few assassins and beat them.

Ok, now bare in mind I'm not finished with the episode yet, but they keep saying there's only Hanabusa left. But what about Nio Hashiri? She has yet to do anything and she's in the game as well. The only assassin to get removed from the 12 was Tokaku-san. So is Nio not participating either? Or is she "the final boss?"

Plus there's still 2 if not 3 episodes left. (depending on if they are stopping at 12 or stopping at 13.) So we still have Nio, and 2 more episodes to fill with either back story, to continue with the last two assassinations (unless Nio isn't participating), and some potential romance.

Lovely episode! I love Hanabusas assassin outfit. I don't know her past and story but it looks like her clan did experiments on her and made her into a robot. The top floor looked gorgeous, but hanabusa said she renovated it so it must've costed her a lot (I don't even want to guess the price...)

A big laugh at takechi breaking out of that jail/detention/whatever it was and trying to assassinate Haru once more. What a disgrace xD

At the end there you would've thought Hanabusa was a little smarter than launching a grapling hook at Haru with a railing right behind her, them being on such a high altitude and haru being perfectly able to dodge. She is an assassin and should take every countermeasure to ensure the win. BUT, yes, I understand that things didn't go according to her plan, it was in the heat of the moment and she had to be defeated in some kind of way, it's just that imo that was a very retarded way of defeating her.
Props to Haru for being badass and jumping over the ledge with Hanabusa though, to ensure her defeat. I absolutely loved the elevator trick that haru pulled, that was a genius one.

A score isn't needed but hey, everyone does it so, here's mine: 5/5.
(lately I've really started to appreciate this series. It felt kinda "meh" in the beginning, but got interesting very fast. It's one of the few ones this season, and the past few, that have dark themes/assassination/murder involved. About damn time)

Hah I knew there was something strange about Sumireko! Cyborg.. I see :3
Seems like we have yet to see the most insane person... I expect Nio to be one sick girl with those tatooes or whatever that was we got a sneak peak of. Just the look of Takechi's face when Nio saw her, truly an expression of fear.

Oh WOW! I didn't expect Haru to do all that! So she is capable of actually killing or severely injuring someone. NEVER EXPECTED THAT!

I see, so they finally mention the fact that Haru has this "queen bee power" which allows her to basically manipulate or control people and get them to fight for/protect her. I wonder how Tokaku-san is going to handle that? That Haru has been manipulating her this entire time! (or hopefully just in the beginning.)

I found out about the Queen Bee power from reading the wiki entry on her. As it was mentioned already in the manga. I wonder why they waited so damn long to mention it when the manga is nowhere near the anime? It's still back on like the 3rd or 4th assassination attempt.

But I wonder what Haru means about waiting to tell Tokaku-san about it? Does she mean the right time to tell her is after the Black Class is over? Considering Tokaku could end up turning on her? That may be the twist for this show. That Tokaku decides she didn't like being manipulated and that Haru didn't develop feelings for her (when she did. Or at least it seems like she did) and decides to try and assassinate her as was the original plan. But somehow, I don't think that's going to happen. While Haru does seem to have this "power" it doesn't mean she hasn't actually developed feelings for Tokaku-san. That's been evident from the very beginning. She MAY have started out by manipulating her, but she has developed feelings for her. At least it seems like she has. Unless she really is a cold fucking bitch and one HELL of a liar!

But I wonder what the last 3 episodes are going to be about? Nio having her chance, or Nio having her chance and the possibility of a major twist surrounding Haru's "Queen Bee power?"

While I don't mind dark endings, I really don't want a dark ending for this anime.(Black Bullet should be the show this season that has a REALLY DARK ending. Not this one.) I've grown attached to the relationship that has been brewing in the background between Haru and Tokaku-san. I SERIOUSLY hope Tokaku-san doesn't decide to betray Haru because of her basically manipulating her in the beginning. But it all depends on how deep this power goes and how deep of a betrayal it causes in Tokaku-san's eyes. And in relation to that, how much Haru has been using the power. Whether or not she's been constantly using it, or she just used it in the beginning.

Overall though this has been the best episode of the series!! Really enjoyed the fight scenes for this episode!

Evidently it was explained at some point in the manga. Even though the manga is nowhere near the anime. As it's still on the 3rd or 4th assassination. But she has the ability to control people and get them to fight for and protect her. Well not exactly control, but manipulate or "charm" them.

It explains a bit of it on the wiki. Not a full explanation mind you, we all have to wait for that. but enough to get the general idea I have. That she can manipulate and/or charm people into fighting for her and protecting her. Which is most likely how she survived this entire time and how her entire family was slaughtered.

So in a way Nio was right all along. It was Haru's fault on why her entire family was slaughtered. She used her "queen bee power."

EDIT: But they put A LOT of emphasis on it this episode and I'm guessing the next 2-3 episodes. Especially with her telling Tokaku-san that it's not time to tell her yet. So I'm wondering if Tokaku-san is going to end up turning against Haru? Or at least Haru thinks that may happen which is why she isn't telling her yet. Maybe that's what she meant by it's not time yet and she'll tell her when it's time. Meaning at the end of the black class ensuring her survival? Because if she tells any sooner there's the possibility that Tokaku-san isn't going to like it at all and decide to take up an assassination attempt.

So either Nio or Tokaku-san is the "final boss."

Tokaku blushing at Haru's cute dress~! D: D'aww! x3

Anyways....epic episode! xD Well, it was intense is what I'm trying to say. xD
Sumireko is the next assassin....and whoa! What is up with her body!? xD It was weird how she grabbed the scissors, at first, but it later got explained why she was like that.
Her body a robot! Pretty sweet. :3

Haru actually did the final blow, which was awesome!
Next episode! Anymore assassins?! xD

Tokaku's glance at Haru in a dress while blushing when they were in the elevator was my favorite part of the episode. I also find amusing to make a big deal out of hearing Haru calling Tokaku without the -san, it's lovely.

And Tokaku could've, you know, let Hanabusa get smashed by the gigantic glass (?) wall rather than pulling her the whole way through.

Well, this show just went full retard. And what's up with Sumireko being unscathed after getting all those grenades dropped on her? Did she take anti-grenade pills that morning? She shouldn't have been all that hard for Tokaku and what's-her-face to fight either. All they had to do was aim for any part of her body that wasn't a limb. There were guns all over the damn walls, so a single bullet would've done the job.

Can't say I don't feel bad for the teacher.
Otoya coming back from some sort of prison like facility.
That's some grand preperation for the confrontation of Haru.
All those robots, weapons and just the extravagant designs.
Hanabusa... all those experiment on her. Their family background and something about being a queen is quite interesting. Still all those crushing of guns and scissor!
Haru's retaliation of those grenades and that stomping. Seeing Haru making some offensive actions were refreshing!
That queen business and Nio showing a bit more about herself. Otoya feeling intimidated from Nio's markings. Some serious stuff is coming!

This episode was not worth my time sure it was entertaining but come on a cyborg as an assassin who look like she can withstand anything from scissors to knives to grenades. As I think about it the show is just getting out of proportion with the dumb teacher who doesn't suspect anything, The main character whose main goal and purpose is the protect Haru and wave it around like it is a banner because we know say something else besides that. I don't know why they brought Takechi back. Finally the only reason why I am continuing to watch this is for the mystery of our two favorite girls Nio and Haru. Especially Nio to know why the most psycho killer in the entire show beside Banba night version is afraid of a girl with tattoos.

Wow. This episode is awesome.

I've always thought Hanabusa's gonna use her wealth and money to kill Haru. I guess not.

So Haru is the queen bee? The queen?
(We now have 4 queens just for this spring eason lol)

I wonder what's with Nio though.

I was kind of hoping that when the tea party started and introduced the puppets; part of me was hoping it was the girl's corpse that failed to kill Haru. It would've been much more creepier! However, puppets are just as creepy. It's cool that Haru is a badass and I'm hoping my potential waifu didn't die. I'm hoping she shows up in the next episode. (I'm talking about Sumireko.)
