THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Eh this feels pretty rushed. The badminton stuff also felt kinda silly.

And welp, Stella got bold this episode. It's just like the LN when Stella "laid" down for Ikki because of the rain stuff and after getting wet.



What a lucky bastard Ikki is. Oh yeah, they managed to squeeze in some action too out there in the rain.

Looks like Oonuma Shin puts a lot of effort from the fanservice, even Touka's appearance ( I didn't expect to be that awesome )

also, here's a scene of the week you should tell to the competitor over there... ( ・ิ‿・ิ)

No no no, you won't find it in the market, or even a store, no.

Try it first before others gotta get it publicly sooner or later!

Rushed, but Raikiri was okay.


They could've mentioned how Saigeki was the only way that Ikki could even hurt the golems(and it has a long startup time, being the most destructive technique Ikki has), but oh well. Touka right now is stronger than Ikki, but I don't think those who are convinced that Ikki is OP will take this episode very well.

P.P.S. My first reaction to that technique was actually Soukou Akki Muramasa

Rushed episode, but that fanservice made this episode awesome. I don't know how many people I would kill to be in Ikki's position, lol XD

The original scene with Itsuki is nice but they also remove some of the important thing.

Also is that Azaka who have stereotypical villain look?

Isn't it supposed to be
Are they going to remove future prospect of the series?

Decent episode and the fanservice didn't disappoint xD

- The badminton part was pretty funny
- Stella was quite forward with Ikki and lol at her pointing out at Ikki's erection
- I thought this was going to be a filler episode based on its title, but I'm glad it wasn't
- I wish the episode showed Saigeki a bit more. It happened for only like a second
- Awesome entrance by Touka

So, he's a wimp..

Btw, the way it ended was somewhat boring compared to how it is done in the manga.

Well, I'm not surprised that Ikki got a boner and probably jizzed in his pants. I'm sure any guy would have reacted the same way while removing a hot girl's clothes.

Touka seems pretty cool, not gonna lie, hopefully her fight with Shizuku is a good one.
I'm no special story or anything. I'm just a manga that wants to be read, like you could find anywhere. But, if, for argument's sake, you were to adapt me into an anime series, it would certainly be....a tragedy.

9/10. One of the best episodes of the series so far after the 7th, just fantastic! We got fan-service that made fucking sense (beautiful Stella no less), we got a bitchin' fight sequence with the He-Man introduction of Lightning Flash Toka at the end there, solid humour, family exposition, and zero filler! This is everything I hoped the show would be. GJ Silver Link!

I will say though, the Japanese really need to get over the slut-shaming thing, it is getting tiring to see it in every damn show with a meaningful relationship.

Who's shaming who? She offered, he wimped out.
She probably thought that because he apparently didn't want her the way she did him.

OK, so this Toka Todo person seems badass, but she only finished in the tournament's top 4? She didn't even win? If that's the case, just how powerful is the person who did win?

Also, just what was Ikki's logic for refusing Stella's request for sex? I mean, I'd totally get it if he said it wasn't fair given her condition, but instead he babbled on about pride or something. That kinda lost me for a bit.

Hahaha, what?



After being annoyed by the last two anime episodes I watched today, this episode was greatly appreciated. Rakudai Kishi no Cavalry has yet to disappoint.

I'm surprised by how maturely sex and relationships are handled. You don't see this often in anime.

5/5

Exactly what I was wondering as well. She seems to be really strong but only finished in the top 4. I wonder how strong the winner was.

I don't mean Ikki was slut-shaming her, I mean the show itself was doing so, which is a common Japanese cultural issue in a lot of these shows. They treat the girls with some weird sense of purity that I'm normally used to seeing from Southern-Baptist fundamentalist Christians that think Footloose is a valid documentary. Japan seems terrified of normal teenage relationships, it's bizarre, though that might explain their population problem ;P


BLKWarGreymon said:

No, Rakudai clearly just did it as well. Ikki was shown to be embarrassed of sex in a relationship because of "pride" or something. It's silly. I've been told the actual reason is that due her being a Princess and him being effectively nothing to people that he is worried about how such a relationship would publicly reflect on her, but they really don't explain that in the anime and it instead comes off as some weird Japanese obsession with Puritan values.

I mean, don't get me wrong, I loved this episode still, and I'm used to that kind of thing from anime, I was just hoping Rakudai would buck the trend like it has so many others.

Cultural difference is in effect. Deal with it. It may be common thing in west but not in east. The level of skinship is just that different.

Ikki wasn't up to his usual fine form this episode, he needed help with those golems far too early. Stella, however, still has an incredibly fine form, Ikki is a lucky dude. Those mountain lodge scenes were hot.

Touka is student council president. The white haired one is Utakata the vice president and the one with umbrella is treasurer Kanata.

Just when I was thinking " wow, ikki sure has some amazing self-control" .. Stella points out that detail.

I did not expect her to be this forward either, but ikki being ikki prevented it.
The action scenes were nice too. Looking forward to the next episode and the glasses girl.(who is really op)

I knew the ''evil'' father would be voiced by Hayami. Really, this guy is like the king of mature, cold-hearted bastarts. I'm willing to bet my MAL account that if a second season of Shokugeki no Souma is made, he'll voice Azami.

A large part of the episode wasn't anything interesting. I would've probably gotten more closure or point of the undressing scene if I watched a hentai. Skipped that part and most of the Ikki/Stella interactions (really, not even grade-schoolers are that innocent), but the introduction of Touka was pretty epic, along with Shizuku getting that message. I would actually be very surprised if Shizuku beats her.

3/5

For those wondering why Ikki refused Stella it was because of 2 reasons:

1) she is sick

2) he says (in the LN) he would feel guilty about meeting her parents having already progressed that far with her. He is the old fashioned type that wants to met her parents and declare their relationship first basically.
