THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Not bad, I liked the buildup this episode. Not too much action but I'm happy to see Ushio's character getting more focus after his recent changes/developments.

I think he's got a huge responsibility ahead of him so he better be ready.
Hakumen no Mono's physical form looks pretty vicious ;o

The ship adventure was great, with Ushio thinking what to tell her mom.
The chamber definitely held the suspense. The mother and kid look the same.
Lol at Ushio showing all the battle marks. The conflict due to lack of memory is just frustrating. Miso soup
I really want to see the faces of the humans after releasing Hakumen.
It sure is a terrifying monster. That eye! Hakumen reminded of the kraken in some way.

I AM HAKUMEN! HAKUMEN UNLEASHED!

This episode made me sad....Ushio's mom is so nice and beautfiul and now it looks like she's gonna die

I really wanted her to survive and for them to make up for all the years that they lost TwT The submarine scene had me feeling emotional as well

But alas....The ultimate evil is free and man is he menacing af

I'd also be scared shitless like Ushio if something like Hakumen showed up in front of me. Sucks that his time with his mom was cut short, but it was to be expected. Now they have to find a way to somehow deal with Hakumen, and things aren't looking too good right now.

Side note, I'm glad when Ushio asked his mom for miso soup, the subs didn't say "burgers" (*stares at Ace Attorney*).

His time with his mom is sweet. Hakumen is finally free. Now shit just get real.
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.

That moment with him finally meeting his mother was quite special
"make me miso soup"
I hope he didn't mean that literally, but I wouldn't be surprised if he did.
Finally Hakumen no Mono is free, I'm hype for some godzilla action.
The next episode's title is jarring.

I gotta give credit to the background music during Hakumen's raising. Oh my god it was brilliant.

Really looking forward to the big fight!

...although next weeks title does give me some worries

I cried like twice this episode. That moment between Ushio and his mom was just beautiful. Ushio's VA nailed it. Hakumen no Mono is out of the barrier. Crazy cliffhanger!

I really believe Hakumen no Mono is scary. But to be that "scary" even make Ushio and Akabane, one of the Undine driver scared like that, I guess it's even surpassed imagination.
That's kinda funny but mostly heart-touching when Ushio finally met and talk to his mom.
But now or next week to be exact, is the time for the real deal.

Shit just got real this time. The scene when the Hakumen get free was very well done. Even those Youkai-mechas looks pathethic in comparation to it. Really an scary villain.

The scenes with Ushio and his mom were very sweet, sucks they were blocked by the missiles :(

I expect things become epic in the nest episodes.

This episode was a bit sad. After the mother son meeting, they only got to spend such a short time with each other.
And next is a battle? We're still not fully ready yet....need more time.

"I am the white void. I am the cold steel. I am the just sword. With blade in hand shall I reap the sins of this world and cleanse it in the fires of destruction. I am Hakumen. The end has come!"

Great episode. It was kind of slow but I was fine with that this time. I hope Ushio's mom will be alright in the end.

I love the scene between Ushio & his mom, touching stuff. I knew that head apt would be interrupted lol, you could see it from a mile away. :/

Best episode of the whole series so far.

And we got a sweet reminder that the Hakumen not only is fucking giga-strong but also freaking giga-normous.

The scene with the mom, was well...................awkward. It was sweet and it was emotional, but it was weird, I mean nobody knew what to say or how. And I for one loved Ushio going all "I think imma complain. I know what you've been doing but I still wanna rant" then he sees the mom and "I cannot say nothing" which is natural, I mean Ushio is a KID after all, about time he behaved like one that does not know what to do.

Hakumen ain't gonna hold back punches.

The mother son moment was nice. Really hoped she would have at least been able to pat him on the head before the torpedoes hit.
But no. As soon as that happened, shit got real. Hakumen is free. That whole sequence gave me chills. Hakumen really is menacing.

I used to feel bad about this show not getting more recognition, but not anymore. Rushed, badly written and starring one of the dumbest main characters in a shounen, obscurity is exactly what it deserves.

Finally we gotta see two things: Ushios mom and Hakumens awakening.
Ushio meeting his mom was really awkward which was ok since this way the first time after a very long time they met.
But seriously, JUST A PAT ON THE HEAD ? IS HE A FREAKING DOG ?
They should hug like there is no tomorrow like literally.
This youkais are really dumb they should not fight in dire situations but now the destruction shall begin.

Ushio's mom was the only one not afraid of Hakumen.

I have one big plot hole though, wasn't Hakumen sealed because he got himself in a pillar that supported Japan and if he got out of it or people attack it, Japan would collapse?

Hakumen entrance is awesome, raining subs and mecha monster. That is one hell of an entrance even Tora is speechless.
I like how so far everything happens the way Hakumen wants, I bet it's saying according to plan behind that creepy grin

I have read manga. This episode did not mention it yet. But Japan had begun sinking. It's just not in a sec. The consequences will be brought up later in story.

The scene with Ushio's mom was absolutely beautiful. The voice acting of both of them was superb. I hope she doesn't die but that is maybe asking for too much.

Hakumen no Mono is one of the biggest, meanest villains in anime history. Seriously scary mofo.

And the scene between Ushio and his Mom was so damn beautiful and very well done.
So looking forward to more to come..

His reunion was awkward as fuck, lmaooo. Really hoping she gets out alive. It'd be nice if Ushio got to spend some time with his mother after all them years.

I can't fucking wait till every one of those idiots in the Navy realize how fucking stupid they are. I also hope they get their asses destroyed by the Hakumen. Fucking idiots.

HOLY SHIT that was an intense episode and a half. I knew something bad was gonna happen but I was kinda expecting more casualties, although I'm sure those will come soon enough. Honestly surprised his mum didn't die in the middle of their reunion, but I guess the universe has shat on Ushio enough that they let him have that one.

Really looking forward to the rest of the season. I feel like these episodes have just been a buildup to the big fight, which is fair enough, but I can't wait until Hakumen starts wrecking ALL the shit.

So, is it too late to read the parts before this manga style? Did they skip important stuff?

Before season 2 they skipped an arc introducing the west youkai. It's a rather long and important arc. Ushio&Tora got a prelim fight with the Hakuman.

Other skipped arcs are mostly self-contained monster-of-the-week. You can say they are skippable. However, some recurring characters are totally skipped. e.g. there was a rogue monk who fought Ushio for a few times. And some character developments are skipped too. e.g. Hyou the exorcist originally had some arcs of his own, showing how much he hates youkai and how badly he wants revenge. All these skipped contents made the final battle less spectacular.
