Welp that escalated. And lol, Reina in a Chinese dress.

Looks like episode got right into the dealing with Phantom part. At this rate, I think each episode will begin like that. There's actually some bits of characterization on Mai this episode but eh, the action was still all over the place so I wasn't feeling it much. What a fail catch, Haruhiko The teamwork though...

Reina looks really nice on that Chinese Dress, love her even more~

I kinda liked it when Haruhiko explained about memories.



Hokuto no Ken; Raoh reference? Nice~

Hahaha beginning was awesome xD
And I love Reina's seiyiu.

Btw, this kind of story would never interest me, but strangely KyoAni could do something like this, and I'm not bored at all. Not mentioning about phenomenal visuals, which are beyond any other studio. This is a real power of classic animation with little addition of modern technologies, this is a way how animation and art should looks like.

I think this episode was good/okay, but seriously? Getting someone elses memories by spending a day like you would in your childhood, then bump your heads and... that's it? Or did I miss something? :D And what is up with that stalker girl? o.o

Haruhiko's lack of stamina was funny, and Reina is a sweetheart. Aside from that, I didn't find that much interesting in this episode. I'm going to put this on-hold, and try finishing Noragami, which seems like a better version of this, instead.

So much Mayonnaise-sama in this ep XD

All Dat jelly jelly Reina tho. Loved her looks in the China outfit.

Bully loli Mai was lol

Sucks that Haruhiko's not gonna keep the power up. Quite an asspull but it'd have been better if he can fight. Oh well...

Kurumi was a cute <3 Are we finally gonna have an ep about her?

Man I can't get enough of the OP

Ehh, they are seeing phantoms, using strange abilities in the world where some kind of virus damaged brains of all people. You really think that sharing memories is a most unrealistic thing? xD

Really enjoyed the episode of Phantom World.

Surprisingly the fanservice went minimum even more than before, still we had some bits of it but not to the point of groundbreaking. Also the fact that we get a nice action episode at least for half the time.

I really liked the backstory of Mai's about her friends in her memories, and a lot to say too. I would say nice episode.

Also, the lack of Stamina for Haruhiko Lmfao.

I also feel like Reina's Chinese dress was a direct Chun-Li reference too.

Wow that was actually really cute with the childhood memory and all. Hilarious how she unintenionally bullied the heck out of those poor little girls and made them cry XD

And what a big recovery from last episodes and its rather undynamic fight.
Really enjoyed the animation with its more than ever so stunning visuals. Phantom Girls were fighting spectuclar, so much eyecandy that i didn't even miss the usual obvious fanservice scenes.

Really enjoyed this one :)

Confirmed, Mai wore her first bra in 5th grade. lol

Hopefully we get to see more Kurumi, she made very brief appearances this episode, mainly stalking the group.

That petting scene at the end was cute, Reina just let herself get full petted.

That power that Haruhiko have. It has the potential to make him either the most powerful character or the most important if that copying power lasts. Not only he gets their power. he also get their memories too. An OP character is in the making.

After watching this episode I'm completely convinced that Phantom World is actually Chuunibyou Season 3. I mean, think about it! A bunch of teens riciting huge magical spells, summoning a chimera from the dephts of hell which turns out to be a small puppy with wings. Coincidence?

Also the whole memory shennanigans of the blonde gril viciously bullying her friends, seeking revenge in a competetive yet playful style, waiting as she headbuts with the male MC who then miraculously gains her memories!

Also the little girl, always following the Main Cast around, watching them fight phantoms and explaining their plot, being deeply impressed by how cool they are. Maybe she's just watching them from the side of the playground? Not having the nerve to ask normal teenagers if she could play with them? Eh? Eh?

And to top it all of: Both of them reenacting the same fighting technique they saw in the cinema together! Just as someone with the Chuunibyou syndrome would try to perform their favorite fighting moves from any given anime!


jkjk it was entertaining though. i liked the colours and the boob fondling. laughed for all the wrong reasons. solid.

This was a better episode compared to the previous one.

Blue screen of death is everywhere.

It was a pretty light-hearted fun episode, despite it feeling like a filler episode mostly.

Wonder if this show will just be random phantom incidents with a short story attached to it and nothing serious at all.

I hope they revisit this memory concept in a later episode so this one has more relevance then feeling episodic. But headbutting each other sounds a little far-fetched. Idk maybe I should try it for my next exam.

I was wondering the entire episode why they picked Ichijou and not Izumi for the memory think seeing as Izumi was better is martial arts then Ichijou.
Well it was an ok episode overall.

Best episode so far. Stupid as it may actually be, focusing on memories like that helped to make this episode lots of fun. Heck, even Haruhiro got to (kind of) make himself useful in the fight for once. I wouldn't mind at all if the rest of the show was as fun and chill as this has been so far, as something like that every so often isn't a bad thing.

Those forward-hanging pigtails are still really annoying me though. It just... doesn't make sense to style them like that. Why, just why would you do it like that? This probably annoys me much more than it really should.

That was actually a really good episode and this time it didn't even need immense fanservice to be entertaining. Story wise it couldn't be simplier and more predictable, but it served its purpose of giving Mai some characterization whilst providing some nice, lighthearted comedy which is rather enjoyable.

I'm quite surprised how much I'm liking the main trio, all of them don't seem to be put into exaggerated character tropes and feel rather lively and natural when they interact, as opposed to Amagi Brilliant Park for example, where all of the character interactions and the "comedy" that arises from them couldn't feel more artificial and cringeworthy. I suppose one major plus is that the show doesn't seem to be focused on romance ( yet ) which makes the interactions and comedy antics quite nice.

Not sure how things'll turn out when the loli with ridiculous haircut and the redhead with headphones joins the team, but eh, I'm really having a nice with this show at the moment.

Brb, gonna go slam my head into a stranger's to see if I can get their memories.

Anyway, we learned a little more about Mai and her childhood. Action was decent, and the visuals were stunning as usual. Sometimes I feel like I'm watching a science documentary when watching these episodes.

It was a quite enjoyable episode of Ghostbusters sorry Phantom World. Animation was top notch (take a hint studio Deen). Hope we see something of an actual storyline developing soon.

Which is even more dumb when you consider that she herself is a girl and so are her opponents.

Yes but we are talking about memories and she probably has memories which she doesn't want a boy to see.
Like the last scene showed some of her memories are harmless when they are known or seen by another girl but harmful when seen by a guy.

This, plus the fact that Reina seemed clearly more motivated to help and train herself than Haruhiko. And this is not even mentionning the fact that Mai never believed the memory transfer would work in the first place.

Yeah, I agree this is true. But still, despite Reina wanting to help more, Mai was more willing to put Haruhiko in danger rather than Reina because u know, dat sexy aggresive relationship.

This was a much better episode than the previous one, although its lost that feeling of Yo-kai Watch: Teen Edition that the first episode presented me with, and I thought was really cool.

I'm liking Haruhiko as a protagonist, but I feel like he's a protagonist in the wrong genre/show (maybe even the wrong sort of protagonist for an anime). His book smarts and drawing skills are pretty cool abilities for a male lead (and possibly his Rogue-esque ability copying skill, although that reminds me too much of Charlotte's protagonist), but I'm still not too fond of how he's being treated by his team. It's not funny, in my opinion, and just makes the girls out to be pretty nasty.

Also, Reina is so irritating. I have no idea what they want to do with her character. And the way they have Saori Hayami, who I really enjoyed in her roles as Haqua in The World God Only Knows, Shirayuki in Snow White with the Red Hair, and Urara in Yamada-kun and the Seven Witches, voicing her is just awkward and kind of adds to my distaste for her. Thankfully the narration from her at the end of the episode hints that there will be some distinct direction for her character coming in the next episode or so.

Mai on the other hand got some decent characterization. It fits well with what we've been shown of her already, and doesn't really make her all that likable, but I'm willing to see how her possible character progression will play out. They clearly hinted that there's more to her than just that, after all.

On the positive, the episode was fun to watch and was still animated wonderfully. Three episodes in and I'm sure that I'll follow this one through to the finale, good or bad by the end of it.

I'm disappointed, not enough fanservice. That's the main selling point of this series, why suddenly tone it down? Obviously it's not predictable story (she me these phantoms in her childhood, what a twist...) or annoying characters (there's something really wrong with Ms. Packman).

So, where's the beach/pool episode?
