Heh, they are really pushing the terrorist idea now on the train. The episode took pretty much entirely on train while it's moving as the others are in trouble.

They also squeeze bits of more fan service like with Aoi's knee socks. Very typical with a happy ending.

Sasshou dropped her towel in front of Aoi. Ehehehe... /yurigoggles off. Don't mind me. This show has just been a huge disappointment, now I'm just trying hard to find some good points. Besides Sakurai and her stockings that is.

It definitely has.

Best Harem show of the season any one?
As of 27/7/14 I have decided trap anime Sword Art Online II has more appeal than Mahouka.

Why are they always pushing Takayama X Aoi almost every episode? Aoi is just a violent tsundere. I totally prefer the chum, Mari the most, then prolly the caring, but possessive yandere, Koumi next.

Once again, they didn't praise Iwaizumi for a lot of his courageous ass-kicking efforts this episode.

Naoto x Bernina...

DAT ASS DOE!!!

Wait now... Naoto x Aoi... no... Naoto x Iwaizumi... freaking hell his harem is too big XD.

I was sure that Haruka got captured lol.

Dat ass... I should really stop saying this lol.

Naoto's looking cool in that royal prince outfit.

They sure saved her without wasting too much energy lol.

That scene sure could cause misunderstanding for some people around here XD.

Naoto x Aoi once again... hmmmm...

So glad that the next episode is the last one. Pretty disappointed in the last few episodes.

Sakurai barely withstand that shock attack, while Naoto withstand 3 attacks? wtf?

This anime just seems so cliche x.x Seriously, wtf with that NaotoXSakurai. Getting sick of it. That's no coincidence at all, it was completely intended.

The breaks didn't work again? How surprising.

The only thing this episode was missing to look like a copy of a hollywood B movie was a make out scene.
And to be honest i demand a make out scene since as usual in anime it was interrupted meaning we are heading towards an other open ending.
And i don't want to read to Light Novel this anime was adapted from.

Ginko29 it's also strange we where hearing the gun since it's clearly equipped with a silencer.

Takayama is getting pushed on Sakurai this time. And yes, it was forced. Obvious harem is obvious.

I don't think there would be any worthy conclusion next time. Other than that he won't become conductor but stays with JSF.

well ain't even arguing about the stupid terrorists that attack a train with 4 or 5 ppl, and when half their crew is defeated, they think they're in position to bargain, but whatever...
i am rooting for aoi x takayama, but this is getting a bit booring, cause he doens't make a move on her and he keeps flerting with every girl
i am hoping he closes the deal with sakurai

The animation dropped big, so big that just in the first couple seconds I noticed a bad animation mistake (When he put the prince in the room, the prince literally whent through the corner of the wall).

Scenes of battle with the bad guys with guns and tasers (pew pew pew)

The scene with Takayama fixing Sakurai's leg wound, was that made on purpose because I bet you over tons of people took that the wrong way. AND SHE WAS BLUSHING TOO!

And the ending of the episode...please hire a new animator omg I was dieing of laughter of how bad it was!

One more episode left!

Just as other people are saying, the animation is really bad

around 36 seconds in when Aoi kicked the thug out of the room and into the hallway, it looked like he came crashing in from the outside window rather than from out of the room. (・_・ヾ

at 19:46 the train was just cruising along at a decent speed, then after we get a close up of Aoi's face and the driver's cab is shown, the train looks like it's travelling at 6x the speed of sound. XD

I'm so confused at times where Takayama doesn't know the simplest things yet still wants to be an engineer. Like at 15:10, where Haruka is explaining the reverse clutch to him.

Izaizumi is a beast. They could have a spin-off with just him and I would watch it.

Maaaan. They are truly showing Aoi best girl in this episode...

Of all the animes I've been watching, this has got be the lightest, no-need-to-use-you- head type of show. It's pretty much the same thing every episode, with the team fighting bad guys and Takayama getting all the attention without really doing much...

Next episode is THE FINAL. Looking forward to see how they'll wrap it up.

Man, Iwaizumi seriously needs to be the MC. Takayama is fucking useless, he said he wants to be a train driver yet he asked Koumi about everything. So far it seems that Koumi knows more about the actual trains than Takayama. That's not even without going into the fact that he's a wimp who always panicked and can barely defend himself.

This prince arc is stupid anyway. Lack of security, no back up for the amateurs dealing with actual terrorists. I've watched plenty of shows that insult the viewers' intelligence but this is probably the first ecchi harem that ever got close to the level of Mahouka's stupidity. I'm glad this torture would only last one more episode.

Excellent episode as usual, this Prince arc has been one of the best in the series for a multitude of reasons. The Takayama x Aoi teasing this episode though. Make it happen. More development for Takayama who is increasingly a great character. Like how me made his decisions and (mostly) stuck by them. Iwaizumi was a beast again this episode, he is basically the muscle at this point in the series but there is plenty of time to add development for him. That scene where Aoi was taking off her tights though. 10/10

There really is no other reason to watch this show other than the fanservice. The funny thing is when it does focus on the trains and the action, it's surprisingly boring. I've said this before, but it really should have been more fanservice-oriented. Huge disappointment, indeed.

"Non sia così"...is that Italian?

Well that was pretty stupid. Iwaizumi's job was to draw scarface's fire, while Aoi was to shoot the flare tube, yet she also had a clear headshot and could have been done with it. They're hitmen, killers for hire, and firing an SMG at you!...not common thugs that can be rehabilitated after a slap on the wrist. Aoi, shoot to kill! They gave you a lethal weapon for a reason.

Guns, bombs, kidnappings, assassination attempts...yet not a single life lost, even on the enemy side. The "wars" in the title is a bit of an overstatement. This show needs more blood. Unfortunately it never will.

Aoi was also pretty stupid to volunteer to detach the train with Takayama when she knew of her leg injury. Now that I think about it, did they bring the hitmen to the passenger cars before detaching, or throw them off? They didn't seem to be on the train with them after the detachment.

Wait...that's it!? What the hell happened to the 4 family members of the "prince"? Nothing is resolved, godammit! And with the next episode being the last, it's likely nothing will: not the reciprocated feelings of the girls with crushes, not the "prince's" family accident, nothing! Next episode looks to be wasted on a filler-esque date with Iida-san unnecessarily joining the fray. These anime girls just love the weak loser type of guy don't they?

It's not surprising this show has a rating of less than 7 on MAL. If this was a test score, it'd be a D--for disaster. The only saving grace was Aoi's legs...and Sassou's disrobing.

...Talk about excessive fanservice. -_-

Anyway, the beginning of the episode made no sense. Sakurai got tazed in the back, and she fell, but when the thug/terroist/whatever he's supposed to be also got tazed in the back, he fell as well, but was apparently unconscious. What...?

I agree that the animation has gotten pretty bad. *shakes head*

I didn't give a flying fuck at the Sakurai and Takayama part, because I don't see anything good between those two. Sakurai is a bitch (I can tolerate Tsundere's, but she just makes me want to punch her), and Takayama is practically useless!

I'm so glad the next episode is the final one. I don't expect anything good, though.
