THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Damn, I feel bad for Julis this episode. Knew it wouldn't be easy against those twins but they are also showing no mercy to her...

In the meantime, I guess Julis and Ayato's connection grew even stronger during the fight. Grats to their victory but I find the face of the twins' defeat to be ridiculous.

Hayato's still daydreaming try to break the seal while the twins torturing Julis. He should daydreaming longer. LOL
That's it Kirin, time to get a little bit serious. Just to make your opponent feel scare and you're one way ahead from your opponent.
And who the heck did abducting Flora?!

I'm glad that stupid 5 minute limit was extended, and finally Claudia is back. Shame the vile twins didn't get more punishment.

Need to watch it in high definition man. Btw the subs this time is a bit over translate, even Ayato skills naming translate badly, "banish evil spirits" <--- so wrong lol.

The battle is a little bit out of sync, who cares... because Ayato is on "don't give a damn" mode, just walk straight. His didn't boost up, but the duration has increase to 1 hour. He even use his sister skills, i guess there is a meaning to the flashback in previous episode.

After i rewatch the battle scene again, i notice Ayato 1st cut the ball of fire, it explode, then he cut the explosion again.

I'm like- lol, AR-D feel scare? and take out his hammer in reflex. Saya's equipment is too big for her =.= a bit op thou

Seems like lolicon Dirk is on the move. XD

From a couple of minutes to an hour, I guess we can say Ayato got one hell of an upgrade. That punch was great though. Animations felt top-notch in this episode.

4/5

So Ayato didn't fully unlock his power but just a layer of it.....I'm fine with that

Gotta hand it to Julis for holding it down like that but man Ayato went in hard on the twins...I'm still shocked that he super Touma punched the shit out of the flat chested bitch LMFAOOO

Seeing that the time limit is now over an hour and that he can incorporate new family techniques plus use more power and variations in his strikes is pretty cool and I like how Julis is immune to her flames as well (I didn't like how she blocked best girl Claudia tho lol)

But alas the match I've been waiting for his here and so far I am not disappointed in the slightest.....Based Kirin and Saya FTW!!!

Finally, the match I've been waiting for!

Kirin, the loli Kenshin Himura, can't wait for her to get more serious and unleash all her skills.

How Saya suddenly turned into Mecha Musume surprised me, made me look with awe.

Samurai loli + Mecha loli = Win

btw, I can't still get used with Flora's voice, still weird as heck

Holy shit Ayato went totally HAX there. He REKT them so easily it wasn't even funny and he can last an hour like this...

Gotta admit dem bouncing oppai after cutting the badge were nice. And Dat falcon punch was very satisfying. Greatly animated too

The Saya and Kirin part was pretty nice too. Those 2 girls are really cute

Ayato's was truly OP this ep.
Julis was so innocent to hold back for Ayato's while doing his concentration shit.
Let's see what goes in with the other match up although we may already know the outcome though :(

Loved the face punch the damn brat took from Ayato.

I love the contrast between Kirin's somewhat airheaded cuteness and her badassery when she gets serious. Really shows in her speech and tone.

Looking forward to Kirin and Saya's match.

Oh, and the chipmunk got kidnapped, I guess.

Ayato's skill "逆羅刹-sakarasetsu", is NOT banish evil spirits lol, those subs really. And that "Vijnana", i rather they don't translate it by putting "識-shiki" instead.

In comparison with the previous season this one is decent. The plot is still average-bad, as well as the characterization of most of the characters if not all, but the battles are quite entertaining which have being the main focus thus far.

It was expected Hayato is gonna win, but fun part was battle itself and the falcon punch on that brat is so satisfying. He could have pummeled him more. Glad to see Kirin again and she's as awesome as ever. Saya is going all serious now.

Damn, Ayato can last an hour now. That's quite an upgrade from the 5 minutes he was previously able to handle. And if he's that strong after only breaking part of the seal, just imagine how strong he'd be if he manages to break the entire seal. He would literally be God lol. That punch he landed on Shenyun was so satisfying to watch. Now it's time for Kirin and Saya to show what they can do. Looks like Dirk sent someone to retrieve the annoying maid loli, I wonder what exactly he wants from her.

That day, Ayato embraced his inner Touma...and punched the f--- out of a girl.

Am I the only one who thinks that Dirk is gonna regret his decision? Like it's gon' have some serious repercussions for him.

That was an awesome episode. The first fight was damn good. Ayato beating them twins and get an upgrade like that. I hope the second fight will be just as good. Finally more Kirin again <3. That ending though.

Finally Ayato beat the crap out of the twins. >.<

We are finally seeing Saya and Kirin. >.<
We finally see Saya with that gun armor from the opening. Looks so badass.
As much as I'd like them to win, I feel that they are going to lose... just judging from the opening (since Ayato battles AR-D), well at least it should be an entertaining fight.

The Saya-Kirin fight was the more interesting battle and that's just the beginning of it. Hope Asterisk isn't running out of time to show everything; they couldn't fit in the ED sequence this week.

Somehow the way Ayato just unlocked level 2 of his restrictions doesn't sit well with me :/ That was some weird imagery for the unlocking part as well. Episode could've done without the fanservice during the fight.

I'm very happy to see that face LOL XD
and i think Ayato's action in this episode is so badass. probably best action so far from him. and i'm liking how A-1Pic handle with second season. they aren't taking any time for the SoL scene and straight up to the next battle. it's not like i don't want to see the SoL scene, but that is the better way for this season.

So next battle will be between Kirin & Saya and those robots and i'm guessing Kirn and Saya will lose. i really doubt they will win tho...i just feel it that way.....well let's just see.... :D

Wasn't really feeling the battle, can describe it only as flashy and that's all.
I think like the 2nd battle more even if it was just the beginning.

It really was amusing how he went easy on the one twin, but basically hit the more sadistic twin in a way that makes Saitama and Touma happy.

I was mildly confused by subs...also given the history of reverse traps in series like this...you never know. But thank you for clarification.

Pretty satisfying episode for me personally. Holy shit that was a intense fight, pretty much between Ayato and Julis and the twins, and then the other part went for Kirin and Saya. What a nice combo personally.

AYATO REKT THE FUCKING TWIN Lmao I loved that, since I hated them for rekting Julis... if she was a hateable character then I would be happy but since I like her a lot in here I get mad :S

Other than that, pretty good episode. Although Ayato getting an level exceeding makes me question a lot whether he would be the over powered type MC or not. Because before this, he was pretty much Meh in power, but this time holy fucking shit man. :V

I was expecting a power up for Ayato, now I kind of figured why Haruka put a limit on him.
She don't want Ayato to used power for evil purpose or something like he could get brain washed.
I guess next time Ayato start to get in love with either of heroines, he get a big power up or likely it will power of friendships (bonds).
That president looking guy that know Haruka, something evil about him sooner plot coming.

Haha fight in Kirin and Saya were quite fast, kind of nice to see her technique and Saya transform. She can fly. :)
