THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.

Hmm, not too shabby. I mean, Ayato getting an upgraded version of his weapon thanks to Julis..

Looks like the tournament arc concludes. A rather predictable outcome with Ayato and Julis winning but whatever. They definitely deserved the win after everything. Except for that shitty semi final match The Ayato and Julis bonding moments though.

The last few mint after the ed song: Ayato's prize is to find his sister, yet his sister was in the hands of that chairman, pretty much impossible wish lol. Whats more Dirk and that chairman is in a loop also. One of the reason why Dirk is scare of sera vesta.

At least the sword is ridiculously oversized anymore. Predictable end, but it was earned.

Tsun Lester was hilarious.

I'm not shocked the Chairman has his sister. I didn't expect him to work with rewolf tho. Ayato should have the girl who helped find flora search for his sister as well. If he could get her too that is.

Well, that was pretty generic but good action atleast. I hope we get a reasonable plot for the remaining eps atleast.

The fight in itself was good, nice to see Ayato's upgraded weapon and the robot's secret that it itself is a weapon (God these shows).

Many side plots in play and I hope we get a good resolution and fitting end perhaps. Saya as always great in accepting any challenge.

As for Ayato and Julis, they got a quiet moment but I think they should've just said their feelings as there are only 3 eps left? Nonetheless looking forward to the mystery.

I wonder if AR-D use that "compressed" attack once again, that might cost him his feet or maybe worse.
"That" face startled me, for a sec though. LOL

Nice soundtrack after he got an upgrade for his sword.
It was rather obvious that they will win, but I wonder what will happen in next episodes.

Isnt Ayato supposed to team up with Claudia for the net festa or am i not remembering things correctly from the last season? Also Damnit of course the chairman has his sister, I just hope shes alright and they dont pull the generic brainwashing so she fights Ayato and he has to spend the whole fight talking instead of fighting to get her back. Also kinda salty that shes naked in that test tube, they could treat her better than that lol.
Around and around the cycle goes.

Okay, glad they are not stopping here, that's the vibe I got from this episode.
Decent episode, the fight was way too short, I wanted to see more of it and not some lame chatty shit lol

Okay, I totally ship Sylvia and Ayato. Just make her the main Girl and this may be better..

The outcome of this fight was predictable, but Ayato's Ser Veresta upgrade looked really cool, not gonna lie. Yabuki seems to be pretty shady with his actions this episode, and the chairman, who's working with Dirk, has Ayato's sister. Good luck getting her back.....

Damn, didn't expect the chairman to be the one holding Ayato's sister. I'm really curious about the friend guy who semes really shady. We knew he was shady since early on season 1 but it's great to see more into this subplot now. Needs more Claudia if you ask me.

Ok great all that effort to win the Festa and there's no meaning because Ayato will never get anything out of his prize request... That's fked up.

I don't quite get how the reformed Ser=Versta fulfilled the requirements of Ayato being faster than AR-D to be able to get one up on him. Also, why is Julis not at the prize ceremony!????

Ayato blushed at Sylvie's wink when he has never had any reaction to the other girls acting cute... that was surprising.

Great victory for Ayato and Julis. Ayato finally got his sword that fits with his fighting style.
Next episode names ''Lieseltania'', that means Ayato and the gangs will visit Julis's hometown. I am really excited for next week.

dat wink tho. I find it cute when Sylvie winked and Ayato blushed back.

Already had a bad feeling about that Chairman when he gave a bad look at Ayato during the start of the festa. I didn't buy his lies about the no evidence about that fatso.

The fight was predictable as many says. But it was fun watching it when he got an upgrade. Better than him losing. I skipped a lot of lame chatter like Flora's whining.

Seems like next episode the two are going somewhere. Yeah I know where they're possibly heading but I'm not gonna say it. Happy to see Sylvia again.

This episode was quite refreshing and enjoyable. But I would never give this a 10 as the second season has been slowly degrading story wise since the the begging of season 2.

I also dislike the pace of this show these last episode that fight with the androids was unnecessarily long and bland.

But at the end of the day it's still a great show just to pass time between the other shows on my list.

The fight scene felt so underwhelming to me.

And if you paid attention you could see the twist on the end come a mile away.

Still an enjoyable episode.

pretty much a given when he showed up in the show, plus a ton of clues were given in the previous eps.

The chairman was the guy who fought Ayato's sister right? so it makes sense for him to be involved.

RM-C has ulm manadite as it's engine, the same material the ogre luxes are made of :O
A 3rd robot is also in the planning stages, so it'll get even more powerful.

Yabuki kills the shadow ninja cause with powerful higher ups letting him stay alive is pointless.

The fight was dope, let's have a toast to victory.

So the Festa is over. Julis and Ayato deserved it, and that final fight was great. Loved this episode as well. Even though the Festa is over, there's still a lot more going on it seems.... Didn't expect the chairman to work closely with Dirk, though. And Yabuki is one shady guy as well, holy shit. It feels like the story's far from over.

Glad the Festa is over, kinda weird animation in this episode all things considered but now it seems like we're gonna see some more conflict that takes place outside of the school setting at last. I wonder if they are going to try and cover the entirety of Volume 6 in the last 3 episodes of this series.
Don't believe the hype.

Yabuki sure is something there.
Overall, super meh until the end where they show Ayato's sister in that capsule.

THERE IS NO NEED FOR CHARACTER IN BACKGROUND TO BE DRAWN DETAILED. THERE IS EVEN NECESSITY FOR THEM TO BE DRAWN THIS WAY, otherwise we would get monstrocity like https://gfycat.com/RemotePastKiskadee

As i thought, the last episodes will be dedicated to Ayato's sister, finally, we will know what happened to her.
That detective/cop is somehow related to Ayato's sister and he probably knows where she is and they are planning to do something to her, that's why he said they didn't found any evidence to that guy, they are friends or at least the share the same objective.

Ayato got a new sword design!! Finally xD That old square design was so horrible.
Saya trying to sound badass and scary but what everyone sees is a cute girl :3 Kirin as always is the cutest girl and that moment when she began to hide under the sheets because she was embarrassed :3 so cuteeeee omg xD

We finally saw Sylvia again, Ayato even blushed when he saw her xD I really hope there will be more of her helping them and maybe in the future she will join to Ayato's harem ;)
Great fight, Ayato as always being so OP xD I'm actually enjoying so much this 2nd season that i wonder if there is enough plot for a 3rd season, because if there is i would certainly watch it.

By now this anime is a decent 9/10 for me.

This was a good final fight between Ayato and that giant robot, and Julis still has a long way to become a really strong girl, but I really like the interaction that exists between her and Ayato, on the other hand Lester is a great tsundere, I think he was another joining the harem of the protagonist, and now a change of scenery, I'm looking forward to the last arc of the anime ..
