THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Pretty typical episode, not as much as action as some of the others and apparently, the guys were trying top pull some wishes with the cherry blossom tree.

Definitely not the usual type of tree you see though. A very special type of tree!

That first part was quite cute with Hirano's exchange of gifts leading to an adorable mucchan Uguisumaru hahaha

I WAS NOT READY FOR THAT SECOND PART OF THE EPISODE AND THE FEELS TRAIN THOUGH, ICHI-NII COME SOON TO YOUR BROTHERS ;A;

Ending song with the Toushiros killed me too, Maeda and Hirano's face when cutting the Yokan omfreaking

at first I thought this episode would be kinda boring, but enjoyed it so much!

Hirano's exchanges were a lot of fun to watch and we got to see a bit more of all the sword boys and their personalities.
The second part made me really emotional too, it almost came out of nowhere. Just the idea of using pink paper and then all their wishes to see Ichi-nii and protect Okita ;;
damn you, this was not supposed to make me this sad

omg the "i want to meet ichi-nii" part where yams reads the different sakura prayers... I legit started crying

ED song is gorgeous, i am never disappointed

I wonder does the opening monologue with different character saying it have an important significance to it...

The first part kinda reminds me of a similar story about trading stuff that you don't need to those who actually need it and in return you receive something that's actually useful to you that others don't actually need. The second part got me a bit worried if after they make the wish and it didn't bloom how disappointed will they be but I'm glad it bloom!! And I wonder who this Ichi-niisan they're talking about hope he'll make an appearance.

Hirano goes on a quest to find a way to talk to Uguisumaru while simultaneously helping others. The sakura tree part was nice; hope Ichi-nii comes to the citadel soon. Also ED was cute.

This is yet the be the funniest and the best episode as of now, I had to pause every 2 mins to laugh. Let's see... Where do I start? Gosh, Aoe-san with his purple hoodie and gold armory (kintama!!), Mutsunokami fanboying about western things, Doudanuki getting bad lucks (but I bet Tsurumaru was behind all of it), Yamanbagiri getting drunk and that freaking tractor!! This episode had the same vibes as the official Tourabu anthologies, which pleases me. Also, the fact that some of my favourite characters were shown in this episode (Hirano, Atsushi, Uguisumaru, Honebami and Kasen).

Hope that Ichi-nii and Kousetsu will come home to the citadel... And hopefully Yasusada can protect Okita-kun. ( o w o)

THIS EPISODE WAS JUST BORING!! The only redeeming quality of this show is the action of the show. They didn't have of that there. But instead it's just random Slice of Life junk that's out of place. It also have some slapstick that isn't funny. Overall this anime is boring, and I'm dropping it this isn't worth my time anymore.

I enjoyed the comedy in the first half of the episode. But since I am not emotionally invested in these characters I felt the second half was kinda boring.

This anime is growing on me. I'll probably never give it a 7/10 or above but it isn't as bad as I thought it would be (the first episode gave a horrible first impression).

I knew right away it was Tsurumaru's pranks when Doudanuki stubbed his toe on that weight. XD
Yamanbagiri drinking alcohol... I can't really picture that ;w; I'm such a mum saniwa, I keep thinking my sons swords are precious underaged babies.

It was nice to see more swords, and I enjoyed seeing Aoe rubbing his "kintama", if you know what I mean. ;3

The second half was a bit slow/boring for me though, even though I love them, and it was adorable, but I guess because it is a bit cliche for anime. As usual I enjoyed the comedy, though I felt the previous episodes were more funny for me, or at least had jokes/silliness in more rapid succession.

By the way, is there a way to find out what will happen in the next episode after? I have noticed some people already know by the end of the last episodes what the next episode will be about, but I don't see any kind of preview...

This episode was pretty standard slice of life. But it was good. I was glad that the characters outside of Yamato and Kashuu got some attention and I hope they'll keep going down the route of individually dividing the focus.

My only gripes were the lack of Tsurumaru, as he only appeared briefly, the fact that Ishikirimaru was gone without even a mention of his whereabouts ( though I'll just assume he was on a mission or something ) AND the fact that imanotsurugi got pushed into being a background character without lines. Please give my boys more focus. They're the only ones who'll keep me truly interested until Mikazuki arrives.

Man, gotta love DonutTanuki XD he's the only one that's so serious about battles.
How did you know I love those tantous too? (Well, tbh, 80% of the touken danshi are my faves so lol).
I want more Kurodagumi swords to appear too (like Hakata and Nihongou).

Awww the Awataguchi tantous missing their Ichi-nii ;_; I teared up when I saw those wishes, as well as Sayo's wanting to see Kousetsu. Sayo is adorable as always, so glad to see him animated. And seeing Hone and Nama together as well.

Uguisumaruuuuu, such a calm soul. All he did was drink tea, but I love him. Really liked the peaceful feel in this episode.

Hirano, who has an adorable bob-like haircut, is playing the role of Link in Hyrule, granting the requests of the citizens. The sparkly blanket was amazing.

And asking the tree politely by wishing for it to bloom again...It's like being smacked with a bag of doilies, it's so cute! At this rate, I will die of adorability because of this show and won't see 2017. A very pleasant episode.

to be honest, I thought the actions are a bit too forced on the previous episodes, and this is what I'm actually looking forward for, a pure SoL episode. It's nice and refreshing, I hope next episodes are like this too.

I don't hate action, but I feel like this anime's better going full SoL instead.

No action in this episode, but it was still enjoyable. The first half where gifts were being exchanged was very nice. The second half blew me away. I was not expecting that much sadness.

I've personally never seen a series make such a quick rebound so early on before and this episode is by far my favorite! The whole trade a paper clip for a house scenario was just adorable but the feels in the 2nd half were totally outta nowhere (my heart almost gave out when the camera panned onto the paper strips QQ ICHI-NII COME SOON!!!~)

I didn't think I'd get through a SoL episode with kawaii bokus only. Normally I nope out on girls doing similar SoL stuff. Uguisumaru is so peaceful it was cute seeing him every time Hirano was carrying another gift from the other swords.

Yamatonokami is a genius!! I should consider tying many colorful letters onto a tree too!
Thank goodness none of the swords actually wished for only the tree to bloom as a cherry tree, out of the 1000 or so papers they've written on. I was relieved to find out that some of the wishes were from their heart~!

despite not having a fight scene, this episode managed to be on the same level and the previous ones

No history or action somehow felt like filler in a sol show. Too many characters already & they add more?
Straw millionaire reenacted story was a bit interesting. This Ichi who better be some important historical figure/sword.

No Action this time but that was such a peaceful episode!
The Sakura blossom tree was elegantly beautiful!
LOL at what happened to Hirano Toushiro, started with a four leaf clover and ended-up with getting a picture while eating that yummy dessert! LOL so many give and exchange! If I remember that is a folklore story ain't I correct? cuz I've heard that some some anime...
4/5.

I think i enjoyed this episode although i didn't laugh so much.Slice of life vibe is filled the entire episode

i fell dissapointed because I CANT REMEMBER NAME OF EVERY CHARACTERS IN THIS ANIME and they added new characters again?.....ahhhh

but i know the reason behind it and i can't accept that


Like many people here,i rather enjoyed second part than first part on the sakura part.
And The ED is worth to listen.
I Waiting for next episode
