THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
So we learn more about Shizuku's past this episode...and more about Ikki.

The fight was good, they got a decent soundtrack for it with some important commentary in the background coming from Ikki. I think they invested quite a bit of time into the inner dialogues as well but whatever, I expected Shizuku to struggle in this fight against her opponent.

Shizuku D:

What an intense fight. I love that sudden cinema ratio at the last seconds.

Shizuku x Alice is sailing again.

On another note volume 9 of LN will be out at 15th December.
Kickstarter for Rokujouma is fully funded. Good work everyone. Lets wait for the result of our hard work together.

It was definitely much above my expectations. A pity that I couldn't say the same to Episode 8.

It was nice that the emphasized how Tohka can "see" Shizuku without actually seeing her.

Definitely one of the best fights in this series. Poor Shizuku her dream ended early for her.

I knew she was going to lose from the beginning, but it was still a very intense fight! I'm just curious on who that short fat guy is. Who, I'm assuming, works for Ikki's father, and what they're trying to accomplish. I'm pretty excited about next weeks episode though! HOPEFULLY WE GET TO SEE THE ALL POWERFUL ALICE FIGHT. HOPEFULLY.

Toka wasn't wearing glasses in that fight.
She was literally fighting with her eyes closed.

This was a nice Shizuku-focused episode. I'm glad she got character development and will only get stronger now. =D

Spectacular battle, but the outcome was obvious. I don't like Shizuku much, but she was great this week. Please don't give us Todo's backstory show, or have her help our characters again so they can get friendly, just have Ikki beat her(I'm assuming they'll fight, and this show takes the cliche/obvious route here) while keeping Stella in the spotlight as the female lead...sigh, like that will happen.

It's amazing how week after week this series manages to trump every single badass fight with an even better one....100/10 visuals too

Best fight of the series hands down and easily one of the best episodes too....I'm really proud of Shizuku and that ending was really cute yet sad at the same time

The scene with the loli teacher and Stella was funny but I'm really curious about she and Raikiri's master and I'm impressed to hear that last year's winner couldn't even beat her in close combat

And Ikki's cunt dad is about to try and start trouble -_-

But it's important to remember that a movie review is subjective;it only gives you one person's opinion.

It doesn't matter if you like LoGH,Monster etc.If you are a jobless or college/school dropout living in your mom basement, you are still an unintelligent loser. Taste in anime does not make you a better person.If elitist don't exist, casual pleb and shit taste also don't exist.

Seriously, if Todo is that strong and can cut through Shizuku's best attack without even breaking a sweat, how the hell did she not win? How powerful was the "spear guy" that actually won the tournament?

Great fight scene though, and I can't wait to see Ikki fight Todo (assuming that actually happens).

I actually really enjoy this series while the setting and character archetypes are very generic the series itself goes a separate path. I hope this gets another season.

Silver Link and Oonuma Shin definitely had a lot of fun animating this fight. It looked fucking badass. Also, Todo wasn't using her eyes for most of the fight (and apparently her vision is garbage without glasses). That's the exact polar opposite of Ikki's Perfect Vision, I hope she gives him a hard time. :D

I feel bad for Shizuku. At least Alice is still there to be best girl and serve as her pillar of support.

Whaddyaknow, an action-oriented episode that's actually good for once, that's certainly a first in this anime

Seriously though, the difference between a duel starring Ikki and one that does not is just huge. Everything in this fight felt so much more wide-open and interesting rather than predictable and asspully

Damn, the fight was so epic.
Shizuku was so strong, might be even stronger than Stella.
Touka...way too OP, so she is bad with long-range huh...
Ikki's family is still a pain in the ass...

If there was such a thing as "jobbing flag" it would be the beginning of this episode
Very predictable outcome, but I actually like these kind of fights where it's a hyped up character vs an established powerful character when it's backed up by a good story, I much prefer these to the David (MC) vs Goliath fights.
It was funny seeing all these "experts" pop up around MC.
Good fight.

Witch of the deep ocean VS Raikiri!!!
The most amazing fight ever from this anime. i know she will lose but still i feel bad for her.she put a good fight. amazing!!! Raikiri fast moves almost looked like a teleportation that suprised me. i think Gakusen need to learn a little bit from this anime.
Can't wait for next week.

This was the best episode I've seen. So glad that Shizuku got some character development and I learn more about her and her family. The fight scene was the best one yet so hopefully the next fight scene is just as good as this one. And really Ikki really? You could've at least give your sister a hug or said she did a good job and she gotten stronger like a big brother but no you just stood there without saying one word to her. Whatever man.

Wow! This episode was awesome! My 2nd favourite of this show right after Episode 4. I want to point out some things :-

* The fight scene was epic. Great animation and wonderful usage of elemental powers. My favourite of this series so far. Ikki vs Kirihara comes second to this.
* Glad to see development for Shizuku. Also, Alice is great. I like him/her a lot. He/She is very likeable.
* Toka was not wearing her glasses. Can she even see properly without those? She even used her 'Raikiri' with her eyes closed! Too OP. I wonder how Ikki is gonna defeat her (I'll be shocked if he loses). They both specialise in close combat. Can't wait to see that.
* I wonder if we are ever gonna meet the previous champion. He has to be awesome if he was able to beat Toka even if he stayed out of her range.
* Stella and Ikki took the backseat this episode but they were still great. Nice to see Stella so supportive of Shizuku. I think Ikki already knew that Toka was gonna win this. Especially because he said 'Neck and neck, huh' or something along the lines of that. He knew that it wasn't 'neck and neck' at all.
* Great...now what is the dad going to do. Also, it seems the guy in the last episode knows the father. So..did the father tell that guy to send those Golems against Ikki? If so...what a shitty dad.

Overall...wonderful episode. Loved it. I'm loving this show as well. I hope it gets a season 2.

That would only hurt Shizuku more. because she would feel like she has caused him suffering.

This is definitely my favorite battle. It was nice to see Shizuku getting some needed development. She held her own for the most part against a semi-finalist, but Toka's abilities are overwhelming, especially her Nukiashi and Raikiri.

Maybe or maybe but still Ikki could done the same thing that Alice to Shizuku. He could stay behind and hug her telling her he watch the whole and he's very proud of her and she's doesn't need to act tough. Like a big brother. But that's just me.
