THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Hmm the guys in suits...interesting.

There's some action this episode and in general, I find that they should do more of that. Wonder which of them is the strongest at this point. Those battle poses looks dope.

Aah Jiji Munechika and Ookuri arrived!
Love when Uguisumaru and other forced Kuri-chan. Yamanbagiri and Uguisumaru wears a glasses so cute, laugh that when the touken swords finding Mikazuki.
Always loved the laugh of jiji Mikazuki.
The pose of his awakening, like him more when he protected Gokotai in monsters.
Didn't expect that the ending song will be so beautiful this week.

Hoping for Ichii-nii, Any Kotetsus, Kogitsune, Kosetsu Samonji and Hotarumaru in the next episode. <3

THIS EPISODE WAS FLAWLESS ENOUGH SAID
Killed me for sure! Prolly gonna be my favorite episode for the rest of the series. Mikazuki's theme tho- its so fitting! Even better since Tsurumaru started singing with him. Ahh I'm content.

Good episode. First half was alright (it was nice seeing Nakigitsune though), but the second half stood out with Mikazuki Munechika's arrival. Putting a rare sword as captain and Kashuu as backup is something I've always been guilty of doing when I used to play; glad that Kashuu's got some development at the end. ED's pretty decent.

Ahhhh I love the little bits they reveal about the saniwa each ep.

Saniwa confirmed relatable shut-in who reads trashy magazines. Amazing ; u ;

edit: n00b saniwa just gave another omamori to the captain. Absolutely not relatable.

edit 2: hahahaha 'see how Kashuu fights' my ass, saniwa is shamelessly collecting battle sprite in safe locations. I love it.

I have to thank the poet Gods for answering my prayer. I can't believe Kasen appeared again, and in fact, he had a bigger role in this episode compared to the previous ones. He sang the ED too >.<

When Uguisumaru dropped the "Ookanehira" bomb on Jiji, I lost it. There was something that bothered me about Jiji's awakening, maybe it's not as polished as I expected? Nonetheless, he still looks dazzling even when he's wearing casual clothes.

Best boy of the episode: Kashuu (I promise I'll use my starter son every single damn day after seeing this ep)

The first part is a bit like the previous episode feels. When Shishiou announced that someone will arrive in 4 hours and getting excited I already had the thought whether 'he' will finally appear and he did in the 2nd part. A bit worried and sad when Kiyomitsu said that with the appearance of Munechika the others might not be loved as much anymore although I'm glad it was proven wrong by the end of the episode.

Munechika is definitely a class of his own and got shock when he started to battle seriously and he battles half-naked(?) Did his battle armor got torn off or that is how his appearance when battle?

That ed song though XD It was elegant when Munechika sang his solo part (I had assumed the ed song is going to be a solo version throughout) until the rest join him and it became upbeat but it slow and elegant tempo again. Would love to hear the full version :DD

no biases on this episode sadly, but toudan host club was interesting. I like how Yamanbagiri and Uguisumaru wore shades compared to everyone else.

also, Mikazuki has just appeared and already stripped on first sortie, really now.

can't wait for grandpa pandering on future episodes /sarcasm

First part was funny, but I think the Ouran boys would be horrified at what they did xD

Jiji appears! Aww Kashuu. And damn Mikazuki is really beautiful.

The ED was beautiful, love it!

I have watch it like 4 times already, I just love how tender and light the anime is. I really liked the ending (in terms of visual) and i'm really hoping to see Hotarumaru and iwatooshi soon!

Like i expected before, new characters again.......*sigh

But it'a a funny and good episode and we get little fighting scene here. The last scene in part 2 is pretty warming though

And i want to ask something.
What's meaning "hanamaru" on english, i already find it on google translate but i didnt get the translate from there.

Still waiting for master appearance

Hanamaru means flower circle. It refers to this drawing of a flower with a spirally circle in the center. It's a symbol used by school teachers for grading a test which means that a kid has done a good job.

Wish there was more action scenes? I mean, they talk about being strong and stuff but they don't exactly portray any scenes of them fighting that actually show just how strong they are... I'm really liking this show because of the characters but there's something about this show I don't really get. Makes me wonder just what kind of game this was based on. lol Anyway, on to the next episode~

I feel like the creator of tea ceremony would be rolling in his grave if he saw this host club-esque tea ceremony, haha.
