This is the first fight in the show to actually use combat-based logic! Every other fight is won by either "Talent" or "Swordsman's Will". Good shit! Keep this up and I'll give this series a cookie!

From the radio program Stella and Shizuku's VA said their favorite scene in this episode was Shizuku and Alice hugging scene at the end. They're like a yuri couple to them.

Talk about smashing into a wall of OP as heck. I mean damn, I have no idea in what theoretical way that Shizuku could have won that. She's extremely skilled, very strong, but there's just nothing she could do against that. Full credit to her though, she fought hard right until the end. Shizuku realizing that she couldn't win one way and took the only route that had any hope of victory.

It was a great fight and just sinking all that time into the action was excellent. It did wonders for Shizuku's character as a whole. I honestly wish they had toned down the incest nonsense with her and just played her like this. Someone who for good reason cares so much about her brother, wanting to share the love that the rest of his family never would give.

Top notch episode. Though oddly at a whole I feel very mixed on this show. It does so much right. Visually it is good, entertainment is there, and I honestly like actually having a main couple who is together from very early on and it doesn't slip into harem nonsense.

But oddly....I still don't like Ikki and Stella as individuals that much XD. For some reasons their personalities just rub me the wrong way.

Now that's how I want fights to be. A neck to neck fight or where at least one goes all out, making some genuine effort to win. Just Awesome!!

Tremendous fight, i love when they end that way. Considering this series is pretty average, having this kind of fights is reasuring.

Wow the fight scene was impressive (O.O). Great episode with a beautiful animation, this anime became more and more interesting. The romance, the characters and the fights are all better here than in Gakusen Asterisk

This episode alone truly proves that Rakudai is better than Asterisk on any aspect!
Damn Toudou Touka is super OP and lightning fast as hell!
Shizuka did her best but seems that Toudou didn't struggle in the fight.
There's a spear user that defeated Toudou? but still afraid doing one-on-one close quarter fight with toudou? OK...i'll guess, the one-on-one close quarter that would match to Toudou would simply be MC...Ikki of course.

Wow, somehow the action scenes always impress me. That was intense. Best part about the fight was that the victor could genuinely have gone either way.

I totally love the fight scenes in this series!

So it was Ikki's father who sent that rock monster. I thought it was sent for Stella as an attack for her Kinkdom.

Wow, I watched this episode coming off of episode 12 of Gakusen Toshi Asterisk... this fight blew all of the fights in Asterisk out of the water. It actually felt hard fought and there was palpable tension.

Shizuku, oh man. She's one hell of a fighter and she did amazing against the number one knight in the school.

The battle was beautifully animated, best fight of the series hands down.
Watching that made me realize that the character progression was really well done, they're all becoming closer to one another.

Wish there was more interaction between Ikki and Alice as friends though. ;)

11/10 Episode.

Wow thanks Silver Link u poured unlimited buckets of budget. One of the best fights with interesting tactics, large scale assaults, and attack of the water clones.
Nukiashi almost sounds real, like hypnotism, or like magic tricks to divert attention to a decoy.
Finally Shizuku gets backstory, and neatly ties in with her family/Ikki issues, and the schemer working for father.

She did lose but Shizuku did put up a strong fight and looked strong in defeat.

Wow, how cruel can they be. Upon hearing that Shizuku lost the guy tells the old guy to do as he wishes.

Oh God, that was so sweet. My favorite part about this show is Alice, and especially her and Shizuku's friendship. It's honestly adorable.

Dat fight was simply amazing, damn. Shizuku is definitely best girl, but Toka is one helluva opponent, I wonder how Ikki/Stella will deal with her at the festival.

It's so bad when you know since the beginning who will lose and win because it's more convenient to the plot/story....

New learn with Rakudai:

1st: Opposites + Past story = quickly turns love + date S2

2nd: A girl asking for her boyfriend's kiss = To be perverted >x<

3rd: She want to do it for the 1st time but then you, as her boyfriend, give a lame excuse to no do it. And now she really thinks she's a perverted =O

4th (the new one): A new kinda of trap has been created: you say inside you like are like a woman and acts like woman, but then.. at the most opportune time.... "gotcha you girl!" ;D And no, don't come saying to me that is pure friendship.... not this time.

Hahaha.. I'm loving this...

That probably was the longest and the most epic fight yet. See if they did this more often and less with that bullshit in the previous episode it would be so awesome.

Obviously Shizuku had to lose so Ikki can overcome Touka at one point. Though I assume the finale will be Ikki vs these bad guys who work for this father.

Touka. What a woman.

Shizuku did her best.

Of course the dad was involved.

That was such a good fight, loved it. Really intense and even that Shizuku lost she showed how strong she got over the past years.

I mean that was the student council president, I think it's normal that she's strong.^^

I wonder how that master of Nene and the student council president is, seems like Ikki know him.

Of course Ikki's father is involved in the assassination from the last episode....

Pretty darn good battle choreography... One of the best that swords fight that I have watched...

On a side note:
When Alice gave Shizuku those hugs it made me question if he is truly telling the truth (about identifying himself as a woman) because it seems to me that he sees Shizuku as more than a friend (as a woman) but maybe that is just me...

Wow that fight was really badass! I really thought taht Shizuku was gonna win at one point, but sadly she lost. Im really sad because she really wanted to show how much she loves her brother :/

And im already sad that there are only 2 Episodes left :(((

Shizuku lost a lot of blood. Realistically, she should've died in that fight, but they're not going to kill off the MC's little sister and completely fuck him up at the end when the story doesn't really call for it.

NOW THAT'S WHAT I CALL AN INTENSE FIGHT!!! The magical close quarter combat was definitely amazing! Shizuku did very well to attempt beating Todo, fear no more though. Ikki, your dearest brother does not need you to act tough, he'll be the one to be tough as a bigger brother and avenge Shizuku + winning the tournament + redeeming himself as the strongest blazer in Kurogane's family.

Now I need more backstory and explanation, especially to why the father does not acknowledge Ikki's power and instead, tried to kill him by cooperating with that fat old guy!

Oya oya this is the best fight in the series so far. The choreography and animation are absolutely stunning. It's a shame that it was obvious from the start she was gonna lose but at least Shizuku put up a fight and a damn good one at that.

Alice and Shizuku moment at the end was heartwarming. He wasn't someone she needed to beat so there was no need to put up a front and she let out all her feelings she couldn't show to Ikki and Stella. Good stuff. It would have been even better if it there wasn't any incest.

And of course, the father is involved in the past incident. What the actual fuck does he have against Ikki? Lmao

Damn, that battle between Shizuku and Touka was just awesome, it is just one of the best fights in this series. Shizuku was really strong, there's no doubt about that, but that Student Council President is just on another level, that Raikiri blow at the end was the perfect way to end the match. Honestly, for am moment there, I though that Shizuku was going to win.. but damn.
That end though, it looks like that sorry excuse of a father of Ikki is about to do something again.

100/100 For this episode.
