THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
The action was surprisingly catchy this episode, at least with that funky beat music.

Yufeng fighting for her "papa" is admirable in a way.
So we also get some background storytelling this episode too. The pacing feels pretty weird for this show at times as it puts more emphasis into what the girls are fighting for.

This was probably my favorite episode for this season as it actually takes itself more seriously though.

That was good. I liked Alice and Yoriko's backstory the best. The ending minutes were pretty damn good.

I don't believe for a second that the chief is really dead, but it made for a decent cliffhanger. That aside this episode was pretty much made just to give each of the 4 girls backstory and a win, which woulda been fine except the reasoning behind all these fights is still way too asinine as I've said for three weeks now. Show really needed a better conflict than this. Oh well.

Gil-Ha suffered the most humiliating defeat. xD Nice job, Alice! o/ Silvie's fight ended in a, rather, silly manner.. :s

The Chief is dead? I highly doubt it. And then suddenly, Dongor is overflowing with bloodlust. He really looks up to the Chief. Yoriko was too strong, possibly one of the strongest characters in the series. Her fight against the Chief was the best I've seen in the series, although it's a shame all those delicious food got wasted..

meh... good resolutions of combats, but, alice win? one must lose for balance. I don't say die, but lose at least.
Nice background for alice, silvie and yoriko.
Battle between Yotaro and Dorgon was obvious.

The best episode in the show so far. But is that honestly saying that much? It's been so mediocre thus far. Maybe it'll end better than it started but I doubt it lol

Gil-Ha was pathetic. Headbutt from the girl? Really? After all that hype about his powers from the other characters?

Well, I liked the ending, though. Dorgon's VA (Ryohei Arai) did a good job there.

Probably the best episode of the series, mainly thanks to the fight between Yoriko and the chief, plus the cliffhanger with the raging Dorgon.

I highly doubt that the chief is dead though. I'm surprised no one tried to check her pulse at all. =/

The other 3 battles was good, but pretty cliché. Gil-Ha, with his science-like boasting, was pretty pathetic with the way that he got REKT by Alice's headbutt.

If the show can keep this momentum towards the end, then at least it can be regarded as decent. If not, then it'll drop towards some of the lowest rated T.V series on this website.

every battle have their own flashback -_-" i really hate that.
but the battle between Yuriko and Chief was really good tbh, i enjoy that one, but Alice battle.... i fucking hate that, with just a butt head, not making any sense, so lame. that is the worst battle i have ever seen. big lance vs small katana; the small katana wins.... WOW! and the other battle.... that is not lance a but a gun.....
rage in the end, i like that cliffhanger...

well, i still curious about the story so i will stay tune until the end.

it's fiction it doesn't have to make sense
all you have to know that they won because they had a strong will to win for yotaro.
with that guy's scrawny physique i'm not surprise he got one hit by a head butt to the solar plexus. it's funny too boasting science shit without explain shit, talk shit get hit.
gun lance makes sense coz a gun makes killing easier, she was an assassin before.

My thoughts time: the "fights" were ok but the only fight most of us really cared about was the one with chief and the demonic maid. I really wished the chief had killed her but nah we can't off the main heroes can we?

I also wished one of the supporting cast of characters lost (primarily Alice, I don't hate her but what has she done to be likable again?)but everyone won which is worse than Tom And Jerry.

I did like the cute scene with Maiko and cliffhanger at the end.

P.S: I bet the Chief is alive still.

That science guy getting beat was stupid, but atleast he didn't use his lance I guess.
The other win as well.

Yoriko needs her own spinoff.
The chief is dead? XD LMAO
Red guy is now evil hatred mode.

YORIKO!!!!!
Beat her ass Yoriko.
Why does Ko-Yotaro have a deeper voice than current Yotaro?
Dat Yuriko leg! So fine!

I knew Yotaru and Dorgon would fight each other.

Sorry, Dorgon. Chief may be your Dafei, but Yoriko is my waifu. You don't try and kill my waifu.

It was like about 4 minutes of recap of previous scenes and reusing of the same animation, lameeee.
Yoriko's resolve was strong, but damn why did she look absolutely the same in the flashback? If Lance-sama is 15 right now and 7 in flashback, did Yoriko really not change in the slightest?
Anyway at least my heart skipped a beat when Yoriko smiled when Yotaro said thank you, ah :)

Wtf is wrong with Yotaro at the end? why is he asking why Dong-san is mad and like this when just before that he acknowledged that chief is dead. Or is it not enough of a reason for this mega-whiteknight? Weird logic.
