THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Felt rushed imo....

I kinda like the way they are giving time for some of the supporting characters and Akari some storytelling but I think they are just aiming for the climax to wrap everything together in one piece now. Oh poor Raika but lol the mecha. Also Akari fighting with everything she's got...

Nice a cliffhanger, well it was a bit obvious something would happen with only one episode left.
Tho i do think the final episode will mostly be a calm episode with the girls having fun but we will have to see next week.

And poor Fuuma-san loosing her mask that must be hard for her.

So Akari is Railgun-Lite confirmed. Pretty underwhelming fight but I've come to expect that from this show.

All will be over next week. Can't say I'll miss this but it was amusing while it lasted.

Ayyy brb, let me pull out my minigun real quick and we can get started... lol

With everything we've seen so far, I'd be surprised if Suimitsutou doesn't have some sort of little sister complex. Here's hoping for a semi-decent wrap up next week.

Well, the fight between Akari and Kyouchikutou was okay(wasn't too cringy), apart from the latter being made bare. That last bit felt unnecessary.

Would've probably been nice if they split the episode because it felt rushed as is. Too much of the air time was used on side characters IMO. Even with that, there was almost no impact on Shino being shot. Though for that, it could just be the fault of the 'recoilless' and weak gatling gun.

Why all serie can be like these chapters?
kyouchikutou was to many OP, for the girls.
Finally can see Akiri's technicles.
If she know things so amazing, why want be like Aria, than just know how to shot?

It's not about strength. She idolized Aria's ideals and capabilities in realizing those ideals. Fighting for justice, not harming people in the process, etc. They were a stark contrast to what Akari had learned which were initially intended as shady killing techniques, even if their mother had passed them down more for protecting the things important to her. Now that she has embraced those techniques for their intended purpose as per her mother's wishes, she is definitely a force to be reckoned with.

Akari is still rough around the edges, too. She has a lot of raw strength, and some skill, but she's still naive and isn't combat hardened like Aria is. While she may win over Aria in strength (I dunno, but probably), Aria still has a lot over her in tactics and experience. There's still a lot she could learn.

Honestly, my biggest gripe with the plot developments so far of her being too lethal for her own good -- why not just use rubber bullets? Surely she could have come up with non-lethal means to use her lethal abilities, even if her aim instinctively goes for critical locations.

This was a very underwhelming episode overall with plot-twists galore. I didn't feel the tension at all and it was a bit rushed. I don't really have much expectations for the last episode especially since, "surprise! final boss who's making her first appearance shows up literally out of nowhere" and it's gonna be just as underwhelming too.

And here I thought Fuma would stand a chance against Kyochikutou... disappointing. She is the most I am looking forward to see her fight at least a close match but nope.

Now, a new boss came out of nowhere. Err...

Yep, underwhelming episode. Best part was ninja girl losing her mask. The cute face was real.

It's impossible for a gatling gun to have no recoil unless the propulsion is sufficiently weak.

Sort of predictable fight and progression, It was obvious all the girls except akari would get beaten and now we have a new boss.

The fight was atleast better than the other fights in the series but it was still bad.

The fight scene was better in the manga. I still like the anime and I still like the characters but whoever is in charge of this anime has done a terrible job with the fight scenes and the direction of this series. But that last scene did surprise me. One more episode left so can't wait to see what happens next!

When did KyouChikutou have a sister? I dont remember Suiminsutou in I-U.

I mean when she first show up, i thought she is Akari's step sister from other branch which indicate second arc. Well i guess its impossible to have season 2.

Like everyone how everyone else is pretty much thinking I felt that this episode was pretty underwhelming and after getting my hopes up in the last episode this one was really disappointing. The episode overall felt rushed yet still slow since not much happened. The action was pretty boring and everyone just went in one at a time for some reason and just got outsmarted and outplayed easily tho I did enjoy seeing Fuma's cute face lol. But yea then i didn't feel anything when Akari finally used her technique like there was no real significant build up besides Shino getting kind of hurt because the ammunition was weak? lol Well lets see how this next episode ends up being but so far I really am disappointed with this whole spinoff.

Here is my full review on the episode:

I didn’t understand why most of them (except Akari & Shino) attacked Kyochikutou alone without regrouping to form a new strategy (They are Butei) that was reckless and they are lucky to be alive…

Now since I touch this subject of being alive. Since the beginning of this anime you build the villain (Kyochikutou) as a ruthless psychopath & killer and you are telling me that all of the girls survives her attacks… I didn’t mind all of them except Akari getting rekt but to make all of them survive… I now the past Hidan No Aria and this show doesn’t kill characters in that way but at least make them comatose (girls that were poisoned) that way you make the situation direr to Akari knowing all of his friends might die if she doesn’t step up her game (That is why I liked Shino sacrifice, it was needed to make Akari realized that {but confirming that she was ok was undermining her sacrifice and the impact of that scene}) I know Fuuma is a poison specialist but to come with and antidote and confirm in the same episode that all of them are safe & sound just felt anticlimactic to me…

I would have liked to see more mind games scenes between Kyochikutou & Akari that bluff with the Gatling was a good strategy, that fight needed more scenes… That is why I agree with the majority of people that are saying that this couple of episode (since Kyochikutou took action) felt rushed…

The good about this episode:
1. Hina face was so Yuumy!!
2. Villian + Gatling guns are always a nice treat!
3. Akari team almost swept by a tough opponent.
4. Shino sacrificing herself for her best friend.

Bad episode. Felt way too rushed compared to everything else and it wasn't even interesting. I was hoping so much that after that many terrible episodes we finally get some good stuff that is like the old HnA, episode 10 was way better and then a letdown like this. "The fights" if you can call them that were really bad and predictable and I don't even understand what they were trying to accomplish. Giving each character some screentime while showing them get beaten? Not to mention that even Akari's fight was uninteresting and she just finished it in one hit after all that build up during the episode. What is this OPM?
Whatever the last episode might be, it is too late to save this Anime :(
I'm feeling thank you

What?! This call also battle? Disappointing, the atmosphere that is felt all the time had already telegraphed of events, the final between Akari and loli poisonous then, it was a joke, what a disappointment! Choreography fighting inconspicuous , drawings just enough, the finale with the mecha adds no involvement.
