THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Wow, this anime has plumbed new depths of depressing tales of abuse and political intrigue!

I didnt think it was possible to find someone worth hating more than the monkey dude in the sword and Sugimoto, but that poor girl's immortal harlot takes the biscuit. SHE MUST DIE A HORRIBLE DEATH, PLEASE.

Silly ex-princess needs a couple slaps too, even if she doesnt deserve what she's been going through too.

I really hate the entire concept of one person being in control of others, and Confucianism in general I suppose (I'm more of a Chuang Tsu kinda guy) so I just want Yoko to reform the hell ouf of Kei or something, lol.

Nice twist at the end with the assassination attempt.

EDIT: Fixed typo. :)

Well, I favorited Shoukei for a reason, so there you go. :D

Show's much more mytho-Confucian than philosophical-Confucian, at any rate.

Wow, I've never watched an anime with so many annoying/loathsome/hatred-instilling characters.

Uh, whoa. That ex-princess - Shoukei?... I don't know. I want to feel bad for her, but I can't. She's just not as easy to pity as Suzu, who is all "Woe is me" anyway. Suzu's fantasies about Youko are borderline creepy, in my opinion, ahah. I guess you can't blame her, with all the "abuse" she's suffered at the hands of that crazy bat that is her mistress or whatever.

Definitely a very interesting twist at the end. Uikyou seemed like she had something else she wanted to say, though, or as though she wanted to explain her reasons... and didn't get a chance. I wonder what she would have said? Or if it even matters in the long run. Guess we will find out eventually...

I definitely wanted to know what Uikyou was going to say. Youko could've done something about it.

Sennin don't age or get sick, but can still die via stabbing, shooting, etc. Its hard to know who to trust in this court.

I though Sennin can only die if they're beheaded or cut in half. At least that's what the king of En said O__o

Holy motherfucking ass

Politics and poverty

The play between the two is executed so WOW-ly despite being so colourful and shit. It all started out rather shallow, making us think that it's all going to be master-servant, ruling kingdoms, fighting big wars and whatever else it made us think.

NO

We truly see how fucking hard politics is for one who does not know anything about it. In S.A.C., it's assumed you would have basic knowledge and that you'd know every term and understand every explanation (which of course is on an entirely different level already). But here, goddamn fuck. It's like a mix of Ginei and S.A.C. thrown all the way into ancient China.

Juuni Kokuki ain't as petty as I thought it was.

Anyone can turn on you at any moment without you knowing. And it is shown here absolutely splendiddddddddddddddddddddddddly.

Yeah, fuckin pronounce that "ddddddd." You'll be busting your balls as hard as your brain will be to find out that there really is more to Juuni Kokuki with every ep.

Still disappointed to know that the OP and ED will never change. AT LEAST change the animation sequence for the OP. The ED is bad enough and I can't bear to listen to it.

That's correct. However, the General that showed up near the end stated explicitly that the swords he threw on the floor could kill Sennin, so it stands to reason that they could also craft arrows that could do the same.

I hate the old bag and the other villagers. They are self-righteous and arrogant pricks. Her father did horrible things, but she is not responsible for his crimes.

You're all fired!
^ is what Youko should be thinking instead of letting herself get pushed around and manipulated.

I don't follow the threads I post in. Message me if you want my attention.
