Damn, that's a heavy choice. Even if the PV did give away which way she'll go. It'll certainly be interesting to see how this plays out.



Technically its two not three.

1 Miyu
1/2 Illya
1/2 Chloe.

True. I did think about making that distinction but other than lower mana output in combat it's unclear how Illya and Chloe being separate affects their Grail status. Chloe was still able to trigger a Grail wish on her own after all.

So Illya, after fighting with Rin and Luvia and then getting torn apart, literally, gets her body back. And then she fights Angelica, Luvia and Rin. That's pretty unfair since she's just one loli against three bishoujos.

And they discover the reason behind the Ainsworths wanting the Holy Grail. They want to save this dying parallel world and the Holy Grail will do that for them. Their story has some truth since obviously this parallel world doesn't look normal and Gil is also telling the same story. In this world, the Ainsworths are becoming the heroes and Illya and friends opposing them are the villains. Illya and friends are given a difficult choice to make – they either save Miyu and let the world die, or they don't save Miyu and let the Ainsworths fix the world. These are the only choices because there's really nothing else that can be done. They don't have another Holy Grail to give them since Illya isn't the Grail (or she could give herself up) and the one in the mountains was used up with Gil reincarnating. The world really is dying but whether the Ainsworths are really planning on saving the world is questionable because obviously Darius doesn't look like he is planning on becoming a hero.

Based on this story, Tanaka could be the ones responsible for the state this world is in. But that's a bit unlikely so Tanaka could be part of some other strong magic family who knows that the Ainsworths are upto no good and they want to stop them. But then what will happen about this dying world then? They would then probably have some alternative method.

Another thing was that Illya was pissed at the Ainsworths for treating humans like tools – Miyu is no more than a tool and Illya was also being treated the same. But then Angelica brought up a pretty good point. They were using humans like tools to reach their goals, but isn't Illya doing the same thing by using those heroic spirits to achieve her goal? She was using Saber and the other spirits as tools without their consent even though they were once humans too. With this, and with their supposed mission to save the world being told, Illya is being forced to question her actions as to whether she's doing the right thing or not, whether she really is a good guy or if there's no difference between her and the bad guys. This is interesting.

Based on the next episode preview, Illya will cosplay as a cute assassin and she will have second thoughts about saving Miyu but Kuro will be determined to save Miyu no matter what probably because "f*** this world". Now all that will be left after the next episode would be for Illya to cosplay as berserker, although, based on the cosplaying so far in this series, I wonder how they would make berserker Illya cute. They can't beat the sexiness of caster Illya, that's for sure. Interesting. The other stuff is interesting too...

I think I'll watch UBW for the time being and read the visual novel sometime later. Thanks for the heads up.

Anytime, mate :)

Although, if you don't mind going through the VN in the first place or if i you were even a little bit interested in that world, i HIGHLY recommend doing that first.
Starting with the anime is only recommended if VNs are just not your thing and you just prefer getting the inferior easy experience than reading a visual novel, no matter how much deeper and better that VN could be.

Pacing was a little weird in this episode, first half was really slow... but I enjoyed second half a lot ! I'm so hyped for next week

Hope everything will be fine for Miyu, she doesn't have much screentime this season so I don't wan't her to die. But well I'm sure Illya will save her, she must protect her harem after all hehe

Pretty sure Illya can wear anything and look cute. Someone did do a drawing of how they suppose she could look though.

They will probably shorten some things here and there in the next episodes, but I didn't hoped from the start that they would fit 29 chapters into a 10-12 episodes anyway. I'll just hope that they will end this season up till that part, that's all.

maybe they'll turn 3rei into a 3 cour show at 12/10/10 or something (which would be kinda ironic, given the first season had one and the second season had 2 seasons).

And now we get to see Illya face a classic moral conundrum.

Illya fighting while being a plush toy was pretty funny. xD The ending of the episode really reminded me of the main series.

No we definitely won't get to that point in next episode. It will most likely end on
What you mentioned might be cliffhanger on episode 10 though.

There's absolutely no way to rush next episode up to that point.

Parallel world of Miyu is actually getting doomed!
Illya really had a hard time fighting in that stuffed toy!
3 on 1 doesn't look good for Illya.
4/5.

Episode that brings the action but mainly by way of explaining in what consists the reasons behind the enemy(?) To act on the whole is fascinating to follow. The OST, remains one of the most valuable elements of this anime series.

How Illya returned to her own body was badass. I'm sure she needs a therapy after all that parallel world shit.

No, Illya, you're right. You used that power, but only to clean up the mess, that the Ainsworths caused. Also while hurting others is bad, self-defense is not.

Their world is dying? That doesn't change the fact, that they attacked first and made Illya and the others their enemies, not the other way around. Also, I wouldn't be surprised, if they caused this themselves.

I love that this episode shows you that Sapphire also hates Rin and Luvia. Hilarious - it's funnier than when Ruby talks crap about them and insults them. Also, a "hero of justice" doesn't kill an innocent person against their will to do the saving, lol. That's a weak argument, very weak. You don't see Naruto or Luffy murdering someone in the name of saving someone else unless that person is already an aggressor.

Villains? Justice? Ridiculous! And it seems like Illya will be blended by those words.

Dat ending.

Well, Angelica should've use that spatial magic earlier when fighting Gilgamesh, she seems to be underestimating Gilgamesh.

How grandiose of Ainsworth to try to save the world. Unfortunately the fact that they could've sacrifice their own family but instead they sarifice other's family prove that selfish desires still lies within them. And Darius psychotic personality doesn't help to represent their goals. Unless of course, if there's something special about Miyu.

Speaking of psychotic, the only 1 that seems not psychotic is Angelica, and I guess she had dilemma in that family, not to mention she just stay quiet when Darius is 'torturing' Miyu.
He who smiles in a crisis has found someone to blame.
