THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Episode felt kinda slow.

It felt more like a buildup for the other Clans to regroup and deal with the Green Clan and the Slates. I feel like Anna carries a lot of burden on her shoulders but she is still confident to keep everyone together. Quite a mature girl and responsible Red King imo.

Glad to see the Blue Clan finally making their move again.
Eh, the pacing felt pretty weird again. Neko being useless as usual

Mamo's character getting to know green team better.

Blue king, who went missing, got fired. Red team also knows about it. White king decides to destroy the stone... red queen agrees.

Blue king was called by red queen and heard about their decision. Though understanding the decision, he is still into orders. First part of ep.1 (?) again (with that fanservice) to show what red queen said. Actually mainly centered around red and blue conversation.

A way to break it that even green king never realized? Coin as a symbol of white clan, and name based on the food Shiro likes, "Hakumaitou"?

The stone released and kings are in pain, except blue king somehow.

26:00 (2 mins late) next ep.

The climax of this season is only 3 weeks away. I'm getting more and more worried about Munakata. And scared too.

Reisi hearing Mikoto's voice TT____TT other than that, boring. Poor Kuroh, no head petting for you, silver clan has lost it's spark idk their relationship is very stale? Cant believe it's almost over, in the end I hope everything turns out ok for Fushimi.

Really wanted to see Sukuna and Fushimi fight.
I wonder if Fushimi will have a change of heart or if he'll remain with the Green clan.


That sounds like a death flag.

I can't believe that Kurou actually named their clan "WHITE RICE" LMFAOOOOOOO

Other than that, this episode was really slow but we get more development for Munakata as well as seeing how alliances are now changing and this new plan to destroy the slates

That scene with Munakata hearing Mikoto's voice though TwT And we got more Neko foreshadowing as well - Going by this it seems like she's going to probably play a big role and get her memories back so I'm looking forward to that

Extremely boring episode. I'm getting more and more worried about this season.

Nothing special has happened. All of this could have been summed up in 2 episodes. I'm not even overreacting, the pacing is so slow that it felt like I've only seen 2 episodes of canon.

Very disappointed. This anime had such potential :(

This episode was all right. There were bits that annoyed me but I am happy that the White Clan has a name (and a good reason or two for the name).

Munakata's gradually becoming more of a suspicious character as he talks to Anna. I'm getting more concerned with the constant buildup every week. Okay episode.

What just happened, Munakata? What. Having Munakata as your favorite char is so hard right now. Mikoto fans must have felt this way like the whole 1st season ;_;
Wow this season is ending soon, waited three years for the sequel and it feels like it's finishing in the swoosh of a wind.

I actually like this season, although it does seem slow-paced. At the end with the Slates doing its thing and Munakata rushing off, it hit me that it's already setting up for the season climax!

I have a feeling (and hope!) that Fushimi joined the Greens as a double agent. Or he'll at least change his mind again and end up helping the others.

I'm also a bit confused as to why Shiro and Anna were the only Kings to be negatively affected when the Slates fully awoke.

Must have been the White Hair.

----------------------------------------------

I can't understand what they were thinking when they made this season. I was hyped for it because I enjoyed the first eason and the movie, but so far, this one has been getting worse with every single episode. The pacing it's horribly slow, most of the time it's just the same characters in a room talking, without or anything happening. The Silver Clan felt more like episodic characters than Main Characters, the redhead dude from Red got more action, more dialogue and more screentime than all of them combined. At this point, it's Chaos Dragon level of bad from my POV.

Another boring episode. There is no content whatsoever this season, and what about showing us twice a useless flashback? I don't get what's the point of it??
Dead characters get more screen time than the Hakugin clan which gets a stupid clan name -_-#
There are also so many continuity issues I can't laugh anymore.
It's like they streched a 1h30 movie scenario into a one cour anime.

so basically it's: destroy(no one gets power, fair for everyone), release (yay everyone gets power, fair enough) or control it(bk insist on this one).
i'll go with the release. what could possibly go wrong lol?
but in reality, that'll be a horrifying idea, but it's anime so...

ps.
the fanservice is getting tasteless. wth is with that angle on seri's thigh gap?

All I want next week is for Fushimi and Yata to go at it, those 2, the Green clan, the Grey king and Anna have been the only interesting characters this season, to hell with the Silver clan being boring, they aren't even main characters at this point

Loved the episode but I can understand why some might not. It was a bit slow. Thankfully I love this show and the characters so it didn't bother me that much. Worried about Munakata though. Is Fushimi really a traitor or is he trying to get inside Green to help Blue?

I wish they would do a bit more with Shiro and the silver clan. I miss that family dynamic they had going on in the first season. White rice name is perfect. They love rice and they stick together. :D

Concerning Munkata I also can't help wondering if


I'm also wondering what Fushimi is up to.


I have NOT read the manga so all of this is just pure speculation on my part.

After watching this episode I'm a little less worried about Munakata. I still count on him, I still got the feeling that he's not showing all his cards. Because right now it doesn't matter what state his sword is in, what matters is what it could be, depending on what he'll do next.

I also wondered about it for some time. But he was too weak as a Blue King, to handle Dresden Slate, he started crushing just then. I would love to see him again in full glory but I'm just not sure it's possible anymore.

That's not gonna happen in my opinion.
Moreover, they have got just three more episodes.

And resurrecting him will definitely make me think, 'OK! so who is the Red King now?'

That sounds like a death flag.



Hopefully it's a deeper reason for him doing that. I hope so, otherwise it would be lame right?

Ikr!;-;

I quite liked this episode. I've got a lot more respect for Munakata now, while I didn't really like him at first.
It was a bit slow though, so let's just hope the next episodes will make up for it:)
next week can't come soon enough!

I have theories regarding characters of the series. I want to see more development of the Kings, specifically the Gray and Green. I'm interested in what Munakata will do in the coming episodes. I want to see what happens with the vacant king openings. I'm hoping the series picks up on action as the Slates are "blooming". I hope for less fan service. I hope Mikuto gets resurrected.
Oh and fuck Fushimi. A double-crosser twice already. I hope he dies soon but he'll probably make it to the end unfortunately..

I don't think Munakata has any hope of becoming the Gold King, seems the Slate pick someone who fits the crown, the Gold King was the symbol of preservation and stability and Munakata is more of the order and control type, I see him dying

As for Fushimi he could become the Colorless king but unlikely, while it's the anomaly among the Kings I can't see him leading a clan

Yeah I was thinking he might become the colorless king. He doesn't need a clan as the colorless king. But then how would his showdown with Yata go? Would he just wreck Yata or will Yata pull some ace out of his sleeve? Maybe Yata becomes a new Red king? I doubt it but this is anime.. anything can happen lol

Don't see Anna dying, while she's been a King for a short time she's much to strong hearted to die

If anyone will die it's the Green King being killed by Silver or Blue, then Fushimi will kill Munakata to prevent a Damocles down or perhaps by Gouki Zenjou who killed the previous Blue King. Gray King I can't actually tell how he will die if he does

Don't see Fushimi completely wrecking Yata, as much as he hates to admit it he does care for Yata in a small regard (In my opinion) and won't kill him, however if Yata pulls an ace out of his sleeve and goes berserk I see Fushimi dying and not surviving

Anna doesn't necessarily have to die. Could there be a way for two kings of the same color? Perhaps the Slates will have a way for that.

I really don't see Munakata dying. The only reason that I might see him dying is since the red king died, the writers will have Munakata die as well. There's also his deteriorating Sword as well but I think it will get restored. If he does however, it'll be Zenjou to kill him as he has had no involvement in the anime except for a brief talk with Seri. Don't really know what else he'd do in the series other than that. The Gray king has the ultimate defense so I don't see him dying too soon.

True enough Fushimi does seem to care for him in a small way. You can see that when he sent him the map. But here's what I can see happening: Fushimi becomes the Colorless king, he likes it but soon doesnt like it, starts to wreck Yata and then Yata helps him overcome the Colorless entity. Out of all possibilities I think Yata pulling an ace from his ass is the least likely. I really don't see Yata going berserk unless Fushimi pulls some really dirty shit

Really surprised by how little I dislike Anna. She's a pretty bearable mix between your straight mary sue and your ineffectual child. I mean, her mindset is sorta interesting but other than that she really hasn't got anything going for her.

It probably has something to do with Yata and Kusanagi carring a lot of the load. Though that's true for all the other clanns as well; with most kings being pretty mediocre, characterisation wise, with the clan dynamics keeping things entertaining.

I know for a fact that I couldn't bear a show about Shiro without having Kuro and Neko faffing around.

And watching Reishi without Mikoto to bounce off on really hurts his presence. The little flashback in this episode reminded me of the wonderfull dynamic they shared which has been almost enitirely been replaced with Reishi brooding over a giant stone tablet.

Whoa, REVELATION: Scepter 4 is a gov't organization??????? No wonder these guys act like cops.

I'm guessing that those Slates thingy were the ones that gave them Kings and their cohorts their powers.
