----------------------------------------
Ha, I loved seeing Zorzal and his priceless face this episode. When war comes knowing on their doors, I guess seeing him like that isn't too surprising.

Glad to see the JSDF military making their move, about time. Good action this episode, there's quite a power and strength difference between the two worlds' sides. Not that the Empire should be underestimated though, they do have fighting spirit.

Bozes Co Palesti was also awesome even though she almost got killed :o

So Zorzal's forces didn't stand a chance again which wasn't very surprising seeing the differences.
It was nice seeing those paratroopers in action tho.
Those aircraft if i am not mistaken where C-17 Globe masters?
Shame they could not safe Pinya tho but it seems that will have too wait for next week which will shamefully be the last episode.

What i dislike is that they never showed Teule's or better said the Bunny Warriors history part in the anime now it seems like Teule is the bad guy.
While it's the asshole prince that needs suffering.

The complete massacre of the imperial army was expected but still satisfying. At least they got one arrow in.

Poor Pina though. Excited for the next episode to see what Itami will do.

Yey!!

Now, just Pinã is to be saved, and the teh Civil War starts...but for that we have to wait Season 3 unfortuantely...unless Animators decide end everything in next episode...there is at least 2 and half Novels left.

Shit. Went. DOWN. Finally.

Zorzal's forces got what they deserved right there and we got to see so many classic Zorzal fail faces. Glorious (with Tyuule just prodding him along even further). Loved the action throughout this one and, of course, those Beefeater x Captain moments ;)

I can't wait for next week's final episode with the Itami squad about to serve some fools at the capital. Pina baby, don't worry. You're hero is coming.

Great episode, it was nice to actually see one of the members from the SDF actually get hurt for once. OMG that massacre at the Jade Palace...brutal. It was nice to see some of the side characters again.

Itami is pissed off though! I can;t wait for him to rescue Pina and hopefully,,,If I may take a quote from Elmer Fudd..."KILL THE RABBIT"

I know that Zolzal's stupid, but after his troops were devastated so easily by the JSDF, how can he possibly still think that they can beat Japan? How has he not noticed Tyuule's laughably obvious manipulation yet either?

Oh well. Other than these minor points, this was a very strong episode which seems likely to lead to a very strong conclusion, especially with Itami and co seeming likely to finally return to the forefront.

I don't know what you mean. The mission continued from 0630(06:30 am) to 1800(06:00 pm), didn't it?
Japanese common people usually use 24-hour clock, by be way, which is one of the most commonly used international standard.

From https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/24-hour_clock
"The 24-hour clock is the convention of time keeping in which the day runs from midnight to midnight and is divided into 24 hours, indicated by the hours passed since midnight, from 0 to 23.

Agreed, yet another humiliation for Zorzal that seems so satisfying. Among the "justified slaughter," this anime has shown, this episode ranks the top. After seeing anime like Code Geass, valvrave the liberator, and Cross Ange where


Of course, I would have wanted to see Bozes decapitate Luflus, Zorzal's long haired minion. When seeing Elfen Lied, we know animators are fully capable of showing that scene; sadly we only heard his scream.

I am curious who is Cicero's nephew. If his nephew had joined Zorzal then Cicero would have likely been spared from the Oprichnina. Since it sounds like Cicero was imprisoned then I guess his nephew didn’t join Zorzal.

On the side note, it should be noted that Furuta is still Zorzal's cook. I wonder if the JSDF, especially Itami, was given info on where Pina is.

As for Pina, I don’t know why she is hysterically crying for help; she has even been raped yet by Zorzal. But, if I had to guess, that room has no bathroom so a princess, like Pina, obviously is suffering from mental torture if she couldn't hold it.

Well, I am sure Kengun has a son, or grandson, that he is willing to introduce to Beefeater.

Anyway, like a lot of female characters from To aru majutsu no index, if there is an evil character that I prefer to change her ways and reform them I would prefer Tyuule. From the looks of it Pina’s dad, Molt the ill Emperor, would reform later; of course, I wouldn’t care if he died to begin with. Zorzal is someone who MUST die. Should be noted it was thanks to Tyuule that we get to see a nice slaughter; after all, she is only pretending to help Zorzal because the idiot can bring the Empire down with him.

Why would they depict Zorzal as a clueless idiot, he was the one who led the war again'st the battle bunnies. Like seriously that bunny arsehole forced her people into slavery due to his battle prowess, but now he ask's HER for guidance, like wtf.

The action scenes though was well made in this episode, but again as always I ask myself wether or not the creators know of basic tactics and weapon usage ...

haha :D true true

But america would be smarter about it. They would stage some financed third party to iniate an assault towards their base and thus would justify an attack and invasion on this foreign world.
Only to end up killing 3 million people be it soldiers or any one else (collateral excuses ...)
It's faster that way since they didn't want to bother with ressource squads nor have any rights over that territory (yet). So instead why not just take the whole world in one go :P

Oh and obviously the "official" report about that so called terror attack comes out several years later XD (after every slightly famous witness ended up in a car accident ~~ tragic)

Only one more episode to wind everything up. It was fun while it lasted.

Tyuule wants to wipe out the Empire, remember. She's aiming Zorzal into a losing battle. Note his big tactical mistake that's going to kill him. He's just sent the palace guards to the Jade Palace, which is now empty.

I think Tyuule is our ally in this since she just wants to prolong Zolzal's suffering. Hell as long as no bad stuff happen to itami and JSDF Im all for what she's doing.

That was really well animated.

Not much happened though, at least nothing truly new. Just an action episode (which doesn't hurt once in a while).

Now we only got one episode left, during which I expect to see Itami Rambo-kun princess-carry princess Pina. Still, there's just no way they can wrap this up properly in one episode, with all the open ended character stories and relations.


Above: another example of princess-carrying.

Have to hand it for Tyuule...for being a Woman that is HELLBENT for Empire's destruction and Revenge, she is quite Good Manipulator....It will be until Season 3 we see her dead for sure...unless Animators change things for ending this in next episode.

I think she survives until end of the Civil war...Haven't read the novels tough...and manga is not that far yet.

Well, it was obvious that Zorzal's forces will not have a single change against the JSDF. The rape the poor plebs have getting this episode was brutal.

Zorzal is also a fucking moron, he didn't even notice that Tyule is manipulating him to provoke his destruction xD His stupidity makes him funny, though.
