That was weird with the onsen stuff because of the phantoms seems to be relaxing in it..

I guess this show is trying to explore every weird idea it can possibly can. And oh yeah, since the series involves onsen, I guess it also involves swimsuits. Meh, I was expecting more. And oh yeah, I guess it shouldn't be surprising that they tried to do something weird with Mai again.

...what the hell did I just watch? :D onsen episode obviously, with lotsa great fanservice. Arisu's big beautiful tits seen in that swimsuit all too briefly near the end being the highlight. But I mean this was so goofy! It ended with Haruhiko off to consummate his marriage to a bigass monkey for cryin' out loud! :D Speakin' of ass we got plenty! Ass paintin' imaginary giant ass bouncing, you name it! This was so silly and all over the place. It reminded me of the pirate attack in Amagi Brilliant Park, though not as good. Still, a very fun, slapsticky outing, complete with a friggin' horse costume!...goodness. :D

No real substance this episode as usual,4 episodes left obviously won't amount to anything in that time.

Fanservice was nice I guess.

god.... this episode was bad.
I hope they don't pull pathetic shit like this again.

Kyoto Animation has really lost it's edge.

This would have been better as an DVD-special for the pathetic fans that value this crap enough to actually spend money on it.

The fan service episode and it seems the sempai had it hard this episode especially the female ones.
It seems Haruhiko tactics backfired in him which was funny tho he deserved it for using the girls like that.
He was also very lucky for the most part of this episode getting to touch Mai like that.

Hot chicks in school bathing suits....yes please. Basically was stiff the entire damn episode. Koito had me in stitches the entire episode.
2 things I hated. Why does Kurumi just slide in? Like they're in High School in the courtyard and she just rolls up and wants to get in on the action...makes no sense.
Then the ending was BRUTAL. You give Haruhiko an epic moment, Mai is smitten even more with him, then you send him on his way...why? That just seemed meaningless.

Fun fan service. I laugh at Minase part.
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.

I knew it. The cute pink octopus was going to be "invoke Cthulu". He was bad ass though. I give him credit.

The thing that should not be is now going to be a plushy toy in anime shops.

This episode was fucking horrendous. I mean, with how aimless this show is I expected a hot spring episode, but to get one this bad is very disappointing. Was the monkey licking the girls supposed to be funny? Cos all it ended up being was fucking creepy and downright unnecessary.

This is probably the worst episode I've seen this season, and that's saying something!

If they really had to do something like this, why not do it as an OVA rather than use up an episode of the main series (I would say waste, but every episode has been just as pointless, if not more so, so it wouldn't have seemed right).

I lol'ed at the Beach Girls. They looked all powerful and badass only to become comic relief.

Finally, the octopus from the opening has appeared. And Cthulhu is badass.

So much fanservice this episode lol. As expected of Musaigen... err KyoAni.

What a pointless episode. The only thing that's pointing is the male demographic that is pandering to. Just give this series an ecchi tag for its genre and call it a day.

I think than was a be a classic onsen chapter, but i like the plot.
See the power of the others members was cool, specially beach Angels. The perv monkey was so funny, you know lick sexy girls.
Koito smiling make me laugh hahaha.
When Ichijo say cthulhu I was WTF?, but the squid has sense. Cthulhu can have the shape than he wish.
Resolution was so funny and weird.

The-blonde-guy-whose-name-no-one-bothers-to-remember is blasting off again! Yay. That reference to Team Rocket suprised me.

Is Cthulhu a pokemon? (seriously, he isn't but it'd be funny). Also, I've been waiting sooo long for this guy!

That was a lot of fanservice. Not complaining!

When I saw the look on Mai's face when she was staring at Haruchiko I was sooo sad that it's not the romance series :(

About the ending. It was suprising and funny but I kinda feel sorry for Haruchiko.

Still not as bad as the talking bear episode but the fan service was pretty tame. Phantom World really doesn't know what it wants to be its stuck between being a kids show and standard shounen

It still amazes me that this far on there is no overall story and no character development. Defiantly the most disappointing anime this season.

well, i now why people dislike this episode but for me i think the comedy just escalated XD this is the funniest show so far for me XD
that monkey just dug a hotspring in the middle of the school and wrecked eveybody who disturb him. #ThugLife XD
i doubt this anime will have any actual plot if this is what happen in episode 8.
well, if there will be 24 episode...there will be a plot obviously, but....MAL still doesn't give any information about it. but i enjoy this anime so far. the comedy is so funny and the slice of life stuff was pretty good too imo.

Well, that's our kinda-cliché'd onsen / beach episode. Cthulhu doesn't really resemble my image of a Cthulhu, but whatever. Seems like our MC is finally receiving that well-deserved upgrade, huh? So far so... uh... good?

Haruhiko can't seem to make any of his summonings look menacing, all they do is come out cute looking.

How's he gonna get out of this monkey business anyway?

It's official, Mai's butt is top quality as stated by Haruhiko.
"I've never drawn on such top quality canvas before" or something around those lines.

Koito's expression when she had to lure the phantom out xD2

That phantom deserved to burn, how dare he reject Reina. It's a sin and blasphemy to reject Reina, she's life and love.

And we got a pouting Mai, so adorable.

What's even the damn point of the MAL synopsis including that part at the end about the "mysterious bombing of the Alayashiki Research Facility?" I think at this point it's definitely guaranteed that this series is going nowhere. I saw somewhere that this series is going to be 13 episodes, I highly doubt they can fit this research facility plot thing into 5 episodes.

Not surprised about this hot spring episode. I knew there would be either this or a beach episode at some point in the series. I'm honestly surprised this show doesn't have an ecchi tag, or at the very least a harem tag. The licking, that I'm assuming was for comedic purposes, came off as plain awkward and made me a little uncomfortable. Well, the end was kind of funny I guess.........

So is the monkey phantom supposed to be Son Goku (Sun Wukong)? I didn't think so at first, but their ascendance to the heavens reminds me of his title "Equal of the Heavens"

And then came the episode with swimsuits, the comedy was also better than in previous episodes, I enjoyed seeing other people with powers to fight the Phantoms, this time more focused on Mai and Haruhiko, I expect a development in the plot in the next episodes ..

They managed to fuck up something as simple as a beach episode. Especially the end was disgustingly bad. Is this series supposed to be a case study for new staff on how not to do an anime? It might be even as bad as Itsuwari no Kamen in that regard.
