Ha, Herman is such a womanizer XD too bad he gets tricked a lot smh

Good episode overall. Herman is my favorite from the show so I'm glad the show is giving him a spotlight to deal with the threat present. The horror imo looked ugly as hell this episode. Definitely liked the way Herman took the fight to it though. Why is he half naked this episode. The ending is fucking priceless ha

This episode was so good. Herman is the much-needed comic relief in this serious show.

Soooo much fun. Lol

Art/Animation: Some great choreography as usual but nothing outstanding. The art design overall is as good as it usually is with the horror not getting much screen time so I didn't get to fully appreciate it's design. Oh well.

Music: Love the music as usual and the voice acting is very well done as well with some great chemistry between characters via dialogue, everything feels believable in a weird way.

So much GAR this episode. Herman is so manly and charming, he's just a blast to watch.

So... Herman had history with the Black Knight after all. Before his wife was burned. I look forward to seeing that fight when it comes up.

Overall, this was mostly a character driven episode and fleshed out Herman very well. He is still my favorite character overall.

Man, I wish we could see German getting a blow job from his whore, and this episode looks more like a prequel from the last episode where German shows up naked in front of Leo, man talk about a streaker. Lol

Splitting the last episodes b/w Leon and German's stories turned good! The contrast feels great and delivers information - the Makai Kishi can fall in the dark side if they choose to misplace their power. Leon is not safe from overdoing it as much from failing to learn where the kishi power truly lies.

German certainly advertised himself well in the city :) I love this guy! :D

I loved the whole chasing scene where the soldiers chased after Herman.

Nice to see the past of Bernardo and Roberto.

Lol @ him STILL getting into the panties. Good back story though, it's like bernado killed those guards and turned into the black knight because he went against the makai knight vows.

The reason why Herman was naked xD

Getting tricked and got all his stuff stolen, liked how he checked using the bell with an intimidating look before running! Running in the town away from the guards butt naked xD That leap over the woman to get some covering!

That serious look with that attire, number 1 xD

Bernado and Herman being rival friends back in the day!

Saving the girl that tricked him from a horror. That wolf''s cry was perfect for the situation!

Coins in his eyes, bleeding nose and completely naked in a serious situation ^^ ohh Herman!

Haha so that's why he was naked! This episode is too funny.

Of course, it was also nice to learn about German's connection to the Black Knight. I hate these kind of friends become enemies stories :(

I'm glad we got an episode from Herman's PoV, although I'm a bit concerned about time constraints. If this is a single-cour anime, I don't think we'll get enough character depth and developement. Even if this episode aided in fleshing out some of the characters.

The plot itself could also use some work. Not to mention the small amount of screen time that Alfonso has been getting. I'm glad he's going to partake in next week's episode though.

Really fun ep. Probably my fav so far. Herman is awesome and hilarious XD

No matter how much Irene acted like that in the end she wanted the D XD Must've been a fun night :P

The chase was lots of hilarity lol...Nice save when he caught the arrow there.

Wonder what happened to Bernardo? And can't wait to see Alphonso and Raphael nxt week.

Nice way of connecting things with last week.

So that's how he lost his clothes. He got tricked by that woman! Hahahaha! Herman is really a funny guy. A hilarious womanizer for that matter. Being chased around town barely naked is a thing for him I suppose.

I bet that housewife was smiling in the end because she was getting good fanservice from Herman.

Irene in the end took the D with pleasure. She played hard to get that's all.
She was really quite sexy, you can't blame Herman.

Lol at all his serious style speeches while dressed like that. The white loli was just like WTF when he visited her.

Shaniyaz said:

Bernardo sacrificing himself to let them escape was great, but then what happened with him? What lead him to become the Dark Knight working under Mendooza?

I think it's obvious. He went and killed those soldiers that were humans. A makai knight isn't suppose to hurt humans so that made him into a black knight.

yeah Herman! I love that dude.
Sad back story though. All that work to protect Ana and he has to watch her burn to death anyway...
And wow! He ACTUALLY gets Irene in the end. Damn dude. Do you have any idea how to turn the charm switch off?
I love this show as a whole, bu seriously...wheres it going?

lol so that explains why Herman is naked XD At the beginning of the episode, I thought it was a repeat, but thank God I've kept on watching it. It's hilarious!

YAY! Leon and Alfonso will finally meet next episode! I wonder how they will interact with each other :3

I enjoyed to be shown the history of the last episode for the father's point of view, the plot was irrelevant, but the context has changed slightly
Apparently next episode already there will be more battles ..

The live action series actually does show boobies and in many cases, the women they cast to do nude scenes are porn stars like Hara Saori for the Red Requiem movie and Okita Anri for season 2.

Herman is such a badass. This show might have been more entertaining if he was the main lead instead of Leon.

wtf why does irene try to hit German with a pole just to cry into his arms about her friend/colleague turning into a monster O.o

3/5 events of the episode weren't so random under the context of explaining why German ended up naked with no money at the end of epiosde 7.
I don't consider myself a good judge.

Episode that manages to be a lot more fun than the last, but it is also related to the profile of German, as Leon is more taciturn and grumpy.
With today's episode, even the previous episode takes on a different meaning because it is seen in a different light.
Drawings and animations of a good standard, although my idea is that the budget available to the TV series is not very high, but it is my hypothesis.
Even this anime deserves much more attention from the public.

Looks stark naked, fights naked but still looks badass.. :v.. That is Herman for you.. Irene was so beautiful and so was that other woman drying her laundry...

Also, seems that Bernardo might have had feelings for Anna from the past that was revealed. Now, seems that Bernardo became a Horror. They did not reveal how exactly it happened.

Does anybody know the name of that woman who is in a girl form with white hair? She is supposed to be a Watchdog or something but what's her name?
