Great episode of Rakudai. Ayatsuji deceived Ikki at the beginning by making him use Itto Shura; I actually thought she was legitimately committing suicide there. Ayatsuji was just so desperate to defeat Ikki in order to face the Sword Eater and take everything back from him. Ayatsuji planted traps before the match even started; this just shows how desperate she really is. However, Ikki had a feeling this would happen and told the supervisor to overlook it. Ikki still pulled through and was able to win. I'm glad Ayatsuji is now back to her senses and trusts Ikki again. The fight scene was pretty good and I agree with the others with the blood gags being unnecessary. Ikki falling on Stella's chest was quite the scene, I was expecting more... :P
5/5

The blood thing is not a gag, since the anime already skipped it i guess i will explain it. Yuuri vomits at least 1 litre of blood per day since childhood, she has been having this weak physique for a long time. Coincidentally this became useful for her as a Blazer.

Oh, what a surprise, Ayase is a bitch but they try to justify it all with a sob story. What a load of shit. Don't try to force me to care with heavy-handed, stupid flashbacks. Oh, and please stop with the stupid, retarded bleeding teacher gags. It wasn't funny the first time, and it still isn't funny 7 episodes in. Stop wasting time with shit like that.

Don't even get me started on the fight. Sure, it was nice to look at and all, as I expected, but it was still very lame. Once again Ikki was getting dominated and destroyed (this time by the power of absolute bullshit (to suggest that magic can make cuts into whirlwinds is taking the piss, really)) and once again he's able to win just because he wants to and just because he's the protagonist. At least try to make it seem like he has a chance in the fight so it doesn't seem so forced when he inevitably wins.

This should have been good, and it was significantly better than last week, but there's so many problems that I can't overlook that it's just pretty crap, in all honesty.


Ikki has never lost and will probably never lose.

You know, when someone has a vagina, that person has to be able to act and do whatever the fuck she wants without any sorts of consequences. Japanese chivalry is truly disgusting. Sick and tired of bullshit girls doing utterly selfish shit, like cheating as done here and getting away scot-free every single time. I don't dislike her, but for fuck sake, give her some form of punishment for what she did, having a sappy story behind it doesn't give you extra privileges.

Otherwise, pretty good episode.


Had he chosen not to do that, Ayase would be punished without learning the lesson and could harbor future resentment to him because it was unresolved. As it stands, the lesson itself is punishment enough.

The last thing Ikki wants to do is to be like his family and trample others who are trying to stand up.

fatalystic said:


It wasn't as obvious in the anime, but if I'm remembering it right they did get pretty close as friends and fellow swordsmen, so it's a lot more believable that he'd want to forgive her and try talking her round.


She is the daughter of one of his idols. Id say it is quite obvious why he would want to teach her her mistake instead of punishing for it.

BGMaxie said:

As for Ikki's personality, while goody-two-shoes man is not new, I can say that on Ikki's case it is a lot more complete than that. Ikki is a good person BECAUSE he has suffered. He has gone through a lot of pain and endured a lot and THAT is why he can be such a good person. Sure it isn't a rule of thumb thing, but I can talk out of personal experience, I was bullied by a really LONG time, and the only thing I don't want is for any other individual to suffer this bullshit. So on that sense I can understand why Ikki is a good person.


One could even say that Ikki is a good person because he KNOWS how bad people can be. He grew up in an abusive household.

Its far easier to understand someone like him not wanting to continue the cycle of abuse against others than in usual shonen cases.


He should have exposed her, and had her flunk. These anime princesses needs to be taught that actions do have consequences. This is a concept above Japanese hack writers though.

You are right.
How dare the writers of this not ruin a female character and have a male ruin her life.
How dare the writers of this not be sexist.

The male wouldn't have "ruined" it, she would've, by her own actions.
What you're saying is the same as saying those that put a person in jail ruined their
life, not the armed robbery he/she did.

I don't think it is sexist to hold a female responsible for her own actions/choices.
The opposite would probably be, because then you're treating her like a child.

He probably couldn't expose a daughter of one of his idols.

Er, I hope they show that next episode, if only to make all the people calling for her head stfu. It also proves that Ikki's reason for not punishing her himself was valid, and that he's a good judge of character.

Er, I don't know how punishing her for betraying his trust and trying to kill him would be sexist..... that's a first. It's say that is a pretty legitimate reason for retribution should he have gone that route.

Literally the best episode thus far in the Fuckboy Four (Rakudai, Asterisk, HO, 35th Platoon).

Great characterization and the fight just blew me away! Keep this up and we'll be seeing an ecchi show that ACTUALLY HAS SUBSTANCE.

It's a good thing blood loss apparently means nothing to this guy.
I think they always go a little overboard with the amount of damage Ikki took and the blood he looses in almost every fight, he lost way too much blood in a few hits in his previous fight too. I guess they are trying to make the fight very 'cool'. This is the reason why I'm not really enjoying the fight scenes at all, it's ridiculous.

It wasn't meant to be funny, Yuuri has poor constitution since childhood and vomits at least 1 liter of blood per day. And if people know what Yuuri's ability is, you'll realize it's not a joke that you want to make fun or view lightly at all.

I'm sorry but are we watching the same show? From the way they present it and the way people react to it in those situations (some of them really cheerfully use it as a pun). It's clearly ment to come over as a (terrible, disgusting) joke/running gag... Regardless whether or not it's a foreshadow to another wierd blazer power etc. That's just a excuse.

Yes, it comes through like one, but it isn't one.

Most of the people around her seem to think its just something she does, and she doesn't die from it..
and well, people will joke about just about anything.

I don't know how much of a spoiler you want, but here's a small hint:

Explanation on Yuuri's ability as a Blazer.

So you still think her ability is a joke.

The anime didn't do a passing mention on Kurono & Nene too. And both of them should be more famed than even Stella.

Yes but that's all. They didn't even bother to give anymore explanation beyond that. And before the teachers, they even skipped out Shizuku's first match. Clearly the anime doesn't give all these side characters sufficient exposure beyond supporting or rejecting the main duo's relationship.

Honestly, this is one of those fights that I don't like (Manga, LN and Anime).. He got stabbed in the back by a person, he called "friend".. But, that doesn't end there, this particular "friend" booby-trapped the stage with the intention to kill them.. Like really?? I know it ended with a dialogue about friends and what not, I could compare it to a child getting their hand slapped for fighting or stealing, it could have been better if there would be a slap involved and tell her about her mistake. It is pretty reasonable. Anyways cue the F**king My Little Pony:Friendship is Magic Opening

Invalid point, like i said we are talking how it's presented to us . And it's clearly intended as somesort of running gag, the anime is making that very clear.

Just because it might be some foreshadow (in a much later part) doesn't erase the fact it was used as a running gag since the beginning.

If anyone wants to make fun about it, it's the anime.

She has her share of blood vomiting in the LN too but yes i agree not extreme to the point of the anime but its there. Well blame the author for setting up Yuuri as a person who vomits at least 1 liter of blood per day. Or blame the anime producer for having her vomit beyond 1 liter per day.

Here's my unhinged ramblings on how this series has been so far. I'm not sure how to feel about it. It seems a bit bland at the moment with the insurmountable odds being overcome every time he fights, and I don't really like the "I'll give up everything to help someone else" character stereotype because the character portraying it doesn't feel real to me. That said, the voice acting has been pretty excellent so far (particularly Ayase) and the battles have been varied (each one looks and feels different). I do hope next week changes the formula though, getting beaten up without offering much resistance and still somehow winning gets really old, and it has happened in the three major fight scenes (that I can think of). The OP and ED songs aren't grabbing me, the OP has some nice visuals but I don't really want to watch it muted so I'm just skipping it, and I don't think there has been any reason to stay after the credits start either. The world hasn't been grabbing me too much, and the plot, when you come down to it, is fairly generic. I'm not sure what to think about Stella's role in the last episode, I want her to get more involved in the story, but I think that might just my love of romance scenes creeping into my opinion. I hope we get to see more character/relationship development between the main 4 characters in the next few episodes, they're feeling a little one-dimensional right now.

Still, I would still say I'm enjoying my time with this one so far (and that's all that really matters, right?), and it's good to see that this and Asterisk have gone in different directions.

Great episode, the Itou shura at the beginning was impressive. Ayase had everything planned but she lost. Ikki is too kind, but that's why he is so cool.

Fuck does it matter if they explain that it's part of her power? You do realize this is fiction and not history right? They created this as a "hilarious" joke and put an explanation to it so it would make relative sense.

What do you mean he has no flaws? He has crap magic ability and has to resort to increasing his physical strength to even stand a chance.

Maybe what he meant was personality-wise, not ability-wise. If that's the case, then I agree with him. Ikki is a perfect white knight, a true paragon of virtue.

Shit, Rakudai is steadily moving up the ranks this season. Assuming it continues to improve as it has, it might even crack the top 10 by the end of the season. If the views and bluray sales follow, we might get a second season!

Wow, I was really surprised how far Ayase was willing to go to win. That fake suicide thing was crazy.

The fight was nice. The fights in this show in general are intense and nice looking.

Yay another Yuri-chan appearance!

It's a comon archetype in this type of series, so i don't really get why you are so angry about it.

Besides If mc did what you (and some others) suggested that would make mc just a hypocrite though... . And in the end the real "scumbags" of this show have a tendency to get away with almost everything, so where is their punishment?

Eh, I've tried to find Japanese viewership numbers before, but I've been unsuccessful for the most part. I know that after the first few episodes that Rakudai was in the top third for late-night TV though, above One Punch Man even, due to a 4chan post on it, but I don't know what the Japanese source was. So assuming that Japanese viewership has followed the same trend as the West since then, Rakudai is set up to do very well in sales, as it has been with the LNs/Manga. What that means for a second season I have no idea, but it makes me hopeful, especially considering the LN is ongoing. At the very least, Rakudai is doing better than the majority of non-sequels this season.

Edit: I did find this Fall 2015 popularity poll from Japan. Rakudai is currently in the top 10 for popularity. The poll numbers are quite small though, so it may not be very representative. Also according to this poll, Rakudai is the 2nd most watched in Japan atm (for late-night). It has much higher polling numbers so it is probably accurate to say Rakudai is quite popular in Japan.

I can't believe that Hidan no Aria AA is the 2nd most popular show in Japan. The overseas fans of Hidan no Aria series hate that spin-off anime after all. Not only the fans of the original series, even those who like the spin-off manga dislike the many bad changes in the anime adaption.

Apparently they don't hate it as much as you thought.

Good news ! But have any idea how it is in Japan ?


Eh, I've tried to find Japanese viewership numbers before, but I've been unsuccessful for the most part. I know that after the first few episodes that Rakudai was in the top third for late-night TV though, above One Punch Man even, due to a 4chan post on it, but I don't know what the Japanese source was. So assuming that Japanese viewership has followed the same trend as the West since then, Rakudai is set up to do very well in sales, as it has been with the LNs/Manga. What that means for a second season I have no idea, but it makes me hopeful, especially considering the LN is ongoing. At the very least, Rakudai is doing better than the majority of non-sequels this season.

There's also this poll which fans pick the Fall 2015 anime that they can't wait to watch next week. Rakudai is ranked 8th overall and 3rd for males only.
