THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Eh that was okay, guys chilling out already that fancy sakura tree.

The sunglasses though. They look dope. Looks like everyone had fun in the end partying together. One of them got pretty drunk and I can't help but laugh at that.

Was a decent episode, the ending scene of them under the tree was nice.

HORIKAWA AND KANESANNNNNNNNNN <3 Looks like Yasusada found a new goal, a solid one too, thanks to the Hijikata-gumi. I was mildly surprised they didn't do anything with Kane-san/Shinsengumi and Mucchan/Ryoma's sword but that may be something in the future or in the other anime next year

That second part was so cute, the Toushirous and omg Atsushi's easter egg with that Osaka castle flag. Atsushi and Midare looks/sounds like a couple LOL Everyone totally bought something befitting their personalities rofl overall decent episode. The ending song was another nice one too *O*

Still waiting for Ichi-nii :0

Fav swords Kane-san and Horikawa appear. It was nice seeing the Shinsengumi swords reunite and talk about their previous masters, and Kanesada also brings up the purpose of fighting again in a completely different time. The sakura viewing scenes (lol at Yamanbagiri's new friend) and ED were fun too.

All this time I underestimated my love for Shinsengumi swords until I saw this episode. Kashuu acting flustered is the reason why I live, to be honest. Manba and his sunflower toy and also Midare's attempt to look like Ichi-nii (like haha wtf??).

Aside from the comedic scenes, it was lovely to see the Toudanshi having hanami. I quite like that they implemented some serious sparring this episode (and that double attack too). I also quite like how Kane-san's characteristics are portrayed to mirror Hijikata and that Hori, Kashuu and Yasusada respected him, the same way Toshizou was respected as a vice-captain.

Let's hope the Captain's sword, Nagasone, will make an appearance in the upcoming episodes.

HORIKAWA KUNIHIRO IS A FUCKING BLESSING
It's been a loooong time since I actually cried while watching anime but there you go
The tears were already flowing as soon as I heard Enoki Junya
And Kane-san hnghhhhh
Definitely my favorite episode so far. My only complaint is that Imanotsurugi didn't even appear this episode D:< did Saniwa send him off for Kiwame training or something???!!!

Also, I never noticed Taroutachi's nails before.

Kasen and half the cast wasn't in it.

Only fail this episode: Come on Koge Danbo, let's have Izumi meet his nii-sama. That's not elegant!


You know, I think Izumi just became my favorite this episode. Boy, did I ever get Hakuoki vibes this episode...

Not plot heavy this episode. I feel the need to ship those two red-wearing cuties. And the other two are so precious. And the sunflower scene. I'm-

eh, pretty nice episode. No Samonji but the oodachis(especially Tarou) make it up for me.

also I like how the fight scene fits well into the story, unlike the first 2 episodes.

KANE-SAN YATTA YO.


Now they're only missing Nagasone for the complete Shinsengumi squad. Second half was hilarious and very cute.

Lately I feel like, Hijikata Toshizou is being mentioned a bit more just like in Drifters...lolz
That glasses were really designed as "C-O-O-L"!
intentional rewind was unique!
4/5.

I seriously don't understand what's going on anymore. Just seems like a bunch of bishies doing some random stupid things which is not even funny.

The first part is so sweet where they say that they hope Kanesada will arrive soon to their citadel because Kunihiro keeps wishing for it and that straight out question from Yasusada asking whether Yasusada also waits for him<3 Guess for these swords unless they're 'family' arrives to the citadel they're living in they'll keep wishing and waiting for their family member to arrive.

The second part is hilarious though. Each of them bought different things that kinda depicts their characteristics. This is the first episode that actually made me laugh :)

It's not funny, but it sure panders to the touken ranbu fans.

Ooh, I love the design for Izuminokami Kanesada! That dark red outfit and long flowing hair are beautiful ;)

The swords always talking about their masters reminds me of dogs though, haha.
