THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
All the teases for the festival but too bad we won't be getting the arc animated..

Meanwhile, I think Julis and Ayato shared some decent time this episode including parts of her past. She felt so alone as well. Ah, Julis' childhood friend Orphelia showed up. About time! The fighting gave me some weird vibes.

The lone venomous witch Orphelia, Lewolf rank 1 and one of strongest in Asterisk. Two times champion in Lindvolus festa, and even beat Sylvia(Sylvia become second place in festa). Miasma is one of Orphelia's specialties. Making the ground rotten? op op

Wew, the talk between Ayato/Yulis and her brother. It may seem funny but actually its not when they add in those political element.

The subs in this episode had some little mistake. For example, the title of this episode is actually "The lone venomous witch/strega", not "The lonely witch/strega". Regarding to the skill name, Orphelia is saying 'Kur nu Gia', not turn to dust lol.

Again as you see new OP characters you understand how weak was the festa. I assume that so much stuff is happening behind the scenes, which the main characters aren't even trying to question. It probably is for most of the series so, but it's so noticeable here.

I usually hate any CG, but that fight scene with Orphelia was just awesome.
And now I really hope for 3rd season.

Ayato get to know more about Julis's past. They're definitely getting closer than before.
I really don't think Julis even when paired with Ayato is ready for that battle. It seems like Ophelia's power more like a Darkness-type power miasma that make me think she's make a contract with the devil to attain that kind of power.

Next season it is. LOL

Hokuto Sakiyama worked on the key animation, really nice sequence :O

But you mean no magic, only blade action... No, that wouldn`t be fun or awesome to see... There should be both in one team, if you need to win...

Ayato didn't break all of his seal and controlled his power. He may get chance vs Ophelia when he completes his power.
A lot new characters appeared with new the mysteries, i hope this is a hide for next season.

That was suggested fairly early this season. We knew it wasn't the heavyweights fighting as soon as we were given the ranks the various participants held in their own schools.

That was a good response from Ayato to the request of Julis's brother, he showed that he is really concerned about Julis, but he also has a harem to maintain, so it should still bring other girls to his side, but he seemed a little more weak in this episode, well, Orphelia is also very strong, I am looking forward to the final episode, especially for a new season, but did not have high expectations about this ..

Most students will only choose to participate in the festa where they know they will do best, because there is a rule that you can only participate in 3 festas total. If Ophelia excelled as an individual she would just do Lindvolus thrice. In the previous episode Claudia also mentioned she aimed only for Gryps because she thinks she has a chance in a team of 5.

The miasma weakened Ayato, you are aware of what poison does to people right? He still managed to hold on long enough and protect Julis while taking downb one of the enemies.

Orphelia can be considered one of the strongest in Asterisk as a Strega.

After all the stuff they skipped out in the last episode, I'm glad to see that they've resumed regular adapting for this portion of the LN. In fact, bar a few extended expositions from Jolbert in the novels further explaining the reasons why he doesn't want Julis to join the Gryps, they pretty much translated the conversations word for word in the first half of the show.
Color me impressed. Though, since they only covered one and a half chapters of this volume, unless they have an extended broadcast next week, cramming the remaining 2 and a half chapters (not including the epilogue reveal), may prove difficult if they don't cut corners again...

The animation for Orphelia's miasma was pretty spot on. Those hands looked really good, though due to the animation they couldn't really show how Ayato was still suffering from the after effects of her "poisoning" even after she'd left, which coupled with Gustave's "upgraded" mana-beasts (apparently they'd previously massacred countless Asterisk Hunter Star Guards.... and were only bested by Helga Lindvall....), it's no small feat that he even survived at all. Gustave as an ex-student of Allekant and also a terrorist who escaped prosecution from the <Dusk of Jade> incident is by no means a pushover.
It irks me ever so much that they glossed over this in the first half talk with Jolbert. Four or five seconds of explanation was all that was really needed...

As for the flashbacks they strategically input this episode, if you're smart enough, it's not hard to piece together Orphelia's back story as well as the reasons for Julis' fight with her.

Once again I curse the director for taking out certain elements from the novels, because it's making it ever so apparent that they won't renew for a third season of this (unless all the missing parts are done in flashbacks in the first episode of a new season.... which is quite unlikely), and are pushing for a "if you want to know more, read the novels" end.

some quirky SFX used in this episode. It's a shame the series is ending as this arc seems really interesting. Also the series would benefit from not being a harem,.

Yes, I read it in LN, from the beginning he would not have chances to win in order to protect Julis, but in the anime the fighting seemed simple and quick, so this Ayato 'seemed' weak, not that he really is, moreover Orphelia is an opponent that even Sylvia had no chance against, so I wanted to see a more detailed fight ..

No surprise of how op is Ophelia, she is Lewolf rank 1 after all. And you guys might have notice the students in Pheonix festa are so weak, thats because most of them are not even within rank 10 lol.

Each school rank 1 to 10 are op, Queenvail a little bit weak because they are more beauty and idol. All student council president also very op, except Rewolf Dirk more in diplomat/control and Alekant president just a puppet.

It frustrated me so much if only Ayato had put Julis on the ground somewhere so he could actually fight. It would be so much better than getting a direct hit on yourself as well as Julis

After watching this episode i am wondering, how are they planning to end S2? :/
We need S3!! It must happen.
The idea of Phoenix Festa 5vs5 looks amazing.
I don't know who is Orphelia but she looks so strong, i couldn't understand what was that part that Ayato managed to understand how her skill works (she sucks their mana?).
Is Orphelia that childhood friend of Julis?
Claudia is so smart, she knows more stuff than we think.

We need a 3rd season! This anime deserves it.
Can't wait to see the ending, hope it will be good.

And then the 2 dogs would directly go to attack Julis instead.........one would keep him busy and another one would target Julis. Not really an option, he had to keep Julis close and protect her.

No there is enough content for at least 1 course (or 2 if they stretch out the contents) since the Gryps arc is currently finished in the LN.

Her ability is to create and control miasma which is odorless, colorless and tasteless so it quite impossible to detect until one gets affected. She can probably wield it freely in her surrounding area seeing as how the ground was rotting around her.

Orphelia is the Rank 1 of ReWolfe and 2 times winner of Lindovolus (The 3rd Festa featuring 1-1 fights). Most probably one of the most strongest Strega around.


AivanK said:

Flashbacks seemed to suggest that she was the friend who was taken away, Julis wouldn't go after a random person would she? This situation is kind of similar to Irene and Pricilla's situation from earlier.


AivanK said:

Having family members in upper levels of IEF and having Shadow Stars and Yabuki for her information network as SCP really helps. Besides the assassin IS targeting her team members rather than her.

Who is this Ophelia chick and why is she so powerful?! Claudia pulling out her twin swords was awesome. They really have to give us a third season now, it would be a sin if they didn't. If I don't see a screen card that says "season 3" at the end of the next episode I will eat my shoe.

As many have stated, we have enough content available for the entirety of the Gryps festa, which could be extended for a whole new season, perhaps even more if they wanted to do it in detail. The one thing that it hinges on, is that they failed to introduce an important character from the novels in the last episode who is integral to what I would call the Haruka line, which is the part of the story linking this arc to contents of the next arc, and which encompasses and links both Julis and Ayato's future motivations. Heck, because they didn't even include said character in expositions during these last two episodes will make it quite difficult to link events from here to events in the next LN volume. That's pretty much what pissed me off when they made the changes that they did last episode, because with one episode left and a whole lot of the current situation to animate, we really don't have enough time to touch upon those other moments.

I stand by what I said about them not making a third season. If they do, I'll be pleasantly surprised, but they'll have to change up a quite a few things to make it work.

turned out to be a pretty boring second season with stupid characters and dumb plot development. was it really necessary to add more secret organizations and scheming?

also in one episode ayato is incredible strong and a few episodes later he is beaten by a few blocked attacks and some poison dust.

i doubt that we will see a third season from this 23 episode light novel ad

Ophelia is freakingly powerful. No wonder she's a two-time Lindovolus Festa winner. Her power completely dwarfs that of Julis and the conditions for her and Ayato to fight on isn't good either.

Although the old man came back and resumed from the last episode, with Ayato handicapped from the poison dust and holding Julis, Claudia came to save them from certain defeat. Hopefully the two of them will be okay. =)

The whole animation during the Ophelia fight was unique and really good too.

I would like a 3rd season, considering how many times the next festa is being mentioned, as well as the appearance of Ophelia. Overall, this episode was great. =)
