We finally got a koit focused episode and kurumi showed up too. That was my favourite episode so far.

@Tekken02 Well that's just ridiculous, and unfair for fans of the LN who wanted to see certain things animated. That probably also explains why this has been so episodic so far and why, 5 episodes in, there still doesn't seem to be any semblance of a plot.

Albrecht (or is it Tibbers? All you people keep referring to the League of Legends champion) is my new favorite. I mean favorite Phantom. Ruu needs to develop more character(which I hope she does, especially with her being secretive about what she does at night.)

I think everyone is missing the point of the mc. He truly is the glue that brings the team together. Without him none of the others would get along, or would have even met.

I bet almost every male besides Haru's friend is jealous of him having cute girls as teammates.

An enjoyable episode.

We finally get the long awaited Koito episode, It was pretty interesting learning about her past and why she acts all antisocial and i was kind of pissed to find out it wasn't just her friends which i get since they are kids they would be scared but come on her parents being like that too...geez. But yea we also got to see Kurumi which was pretty crazy to see her bear kick ass lol but overall an average episode that at least introduced Koito more to the group and also come on THAT BLUSH WAS SO CUTE!!! lol but now we can move on to maybe more exciting things now that the group is together like something with that bear which i have a feeling will be bad or something like that unless they plan to make an episode for Kurumi and Haruhiko as well.

Here is my full review on the episode:

This is the damn episode I've been waiting for! Koito is awesome! It's the best when they play hard to get haha. It's crazy too because whenever I watch a Harem or Rom Com the Red Haired/Pink Haired girl is the main and I HATE them, but I love Koito...maybe people should learn from this lol.

Anyway I liked the episode a lot, had some good comedy with the Lunch table incident and Mai and Koito fighting, and it was serious with Koito's backstory and the fighting...and let's not forget that ending <33

This episode is about Koito and how she gain her power.
Well, screw those people just because her power is too OP.
I wonder when will Haruhiko be able to fully summon those Phantoms that were in his drawing book.
He will become OP haha.
Anyway, Koito is so cute at the end tho...that blushing face is too kawaii!

You are right -. full original -.


Gonna drop this then, I was expecting KyoAni to adapt the apocalypse arc, guess serious stuffs gonna make way to moe tropes


You know what you need to do to find that wasted potential? - even when the amount of bad writting and nonsensical plot is incredible - read the LN or try to find the summaries. You're watching something completely original from the anime, while I think in the same way as you do, I'm sure kyoani is right now getting the backlash of what they did here.

But for now if you want some cliffhanger that brings something interesting to the story I can only tell you this: that's probably not going to happen - umm cant remember the magazine but there is already the title and staff of the next episodes leaked -.

*Episode 4 -.
Honestly i think if you had Koito and Haruhiko only this entire episode you could've done something but Mai's actions IMO ruined the episode -. Her character to me is a bigger problem, Mai butting in to get the phantom was unnecessary -. The fussyness was idiotic -. I really hated how Mai had to step in to kill the beast too and lets not get into the water point. Regardless the LN wont help things it will just emphasize how bad it was -.

Pretty nice episode. Finally got to see Kurumi do something besides just be adorable. Although she does that too of course! Koito's attacks keep making me think of RahXephon, which is an interesting comparison to make for a myriad of reasons.

That said, this was another nice episode for this show!

They could have put at the very least a minimal effort there.


This has totally been driving me nuts too! They could have made it a bit more of a singing voice.

Why do I still keep coming back to this show ? Kyoani and moe factor, I guess.

This is one of the exams why I don't quite into the show. There's no real tension or vulnerability. You already knew everything will be solved easily. And don't get me start on the viral infection outbreak caused the Phantom appearance, which seems interesting at first by the way they said in the first episode's intro, but then it quickly become absolute nonsense.

CHIBI USAGI-CHAN!!!!!!!!!!!! Hell yeah.

Also, this was a pretty good episode.

By the by, was I the only one that saw that bear thing (although I freaked out at her cuteness when she called on it the first time) and was instantly reminded of the dog thing from Akame Ga Kill?

The episode felt so banal and predictable, Very very Mediocre.

That bear was really cool though, Pretty much the only highlight of this episode.

No Mai Fan service again :(

Never realized the anime was full original, No wonder it's been so episodic.

Quite a lot of mixed reception for this episode, going by the posts above mine. I thought it was good, although it was easy to predict how this episode went.

Kururmi's bear is properly OP, landing a powerful uppercut on the phantom beast so easily. For a short time, I thought this battle was a cross between Digimon and Megaman. XD

At least we now know that the series is fully original compared to it's LN counterpart, which explains the series being episodic so far.

That there has been a comprehensive narration on the character of Koito, it is a useful thing, pity though that in the end she gave in so easily in front of Haruiko, so a sudden change in character is not easy, especially if the person is young, this is the only flaw that I can attribute to this episode. The rest is all of excellent quality.

Fun EP, if a bit unoriginal. Koito's skill is rather annoying to hear to say the least, but seems I have to live with it... Bear sooo OP

Her screaming/singing is both adorable and annoying at the same time. Truly a double-edge sword.


The flying dog and fighting bear were awesome!!!!


I'm guessing that the next episode will be about the bear chick. And then we get to the story starting on episode 7

I still don't like Koito so this episode was 'meh' for me. Kurumi certainly is a cutie pie though.

This is the damn episode I've been waiting for! Koito is awesome! It's the best when they play hard to get haha. It's crazy too because whenever I watch a Harem or Rom Com the Red Haired/Pink Haired girl is the main and I HATE them, but I love Koito...maybe people should learn from this lol.


I'm opposite of you. The main red/pink girl is usually best girl but I don't think Koito is remotely likable....well, she isn't the main girl either so I don't have to worry. lol

half expected her to kiss Koito to heal her: Kyoani missed a great opportunity to shove yuribait down our throats, there.
This show seriously lacks fan service. Everything else shown thus far has been mildly entertaining at best.

Koito's "aaaaaaaaaaaaa" might be a bit like a Buddhist/Bonn Monk or Nuns chant? or even more primal and pagan like a magical war cry? I think it works fine that way, unpretentious and believable - as someone above pointed out - it would perhaps weaken the scene if it had melodic/harmonic elements.

Best episode so far. Action was awesome and we got some light shed on two new characters. Koito is damn delicious, and don't even get me started on the lolicious Kurumi-chan.

Ruru using a pay phone was adorable!

Well now that we have all of them together, I wonder if a plot will actually begin to take form? Not that I mind the episodic thing right now though, I think it's fun.

Again, best episode so far.
