THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Even someone as young as Sana knows the dangers of powers.

I really like the focus on Sana this episode as it shows a more mature side of her and how she is able to help Zouroku understand her more. Really like their character chemistry too and that scene of them in the sky was quite something. Shizuku is also such a badass, hope to see her in action again in the future!

It's Shizuku vs Mini C. on the boat this week: giant hands vs giant parasols. XD So Shizuku really was the woman who helped Sana back in episode 1. Thankfully she sent that bitch Mini C. packing! Badass Shizuku is badass. Meanwhile some adorable scenes of Zouroku feeding Sana Snickers and Sana giving forehead kisses in the sky. XD Oh yeah Sanae, she's VERY kawaiiiii! XD And so was that meal scene between the three of them to end the episode at home, where they belong. :)

Glad all is well now, the fight was pretty fun. While I feel bad for Minnie C's situation I can't condom her actions and I'm surprised she never thought if it's something her husband would've wanted.
Looks like things have calm down for now. :)

That episode went by pretty quickly. I kind of like that battle between Shizuku and Minnie C but the interactions between the family was the best thing.

That was a really good episode.

Shizuku is awesome, I love the way she wrecked Minnie C. Action was pretty cool overall.

Lovely flying scene with Sana and Zoroku.

Guess everything wrapped up quite well with a decent conclusion. If the organization after Sana was dismantled then what's gonna happen to all the other Dreams of Alice?

Totally agree with Sanae there, Sana is kawaiiii.

That felt like an ending. I'm not sure what they will do now.

The ''enemy'' faction got disbanded? I wanna know more about the kids there and the main ''enemy'' guy.

This episode felt a lot like a finale. I wonder what's going to happen now. The enemy got disbanded. Shizuku was awesome. She wrecked Minnie C. The action was good. I loved the flying scene with Sana and Zoroku. She's part of the family now.

Aahh, the "Unwelcome Little Sister". I'll remember that for sure.
Lots of ship cargo and creepy hands drowned in the sea. Well at least Sana is safe for now. And she's also having fun with Zouroku. >_<

Well getting rid of Minnie C. happened faster than I thought. Now we can go back to awesome Zoroku and Sana in their SoL evironment.
I just hope they won't pull anything cheap, like the good guys are actually the bad guys and Sana is going to help her former enemies against them.

So is that is, the series is over? I know it is a ongoing manga, so that can't be it. A 5 episode season? Is that possible? Also the boys and the twins you are just going to ditch them, what happened to them?

So, does that mean this show is going to focus on the slice of life stuff from now on? I'd really like that to be the case seeing as this evil organisation stuff was a bit generic, but I doubt we've seen the last of them, not least considering Naito's wish for another incident to occur (that's a flag if I've ever seen one). As an aside, assuming the main guy in the evil organisation got arrested, what happens to the Dreams of Alice he had with him? Same question also applies if that isn't actually the case.

I freaking told y'all that Shizuku was the maid from the first episode, I freaking called it!

Anyway, this was a pretty good conclusion to this abduction part. Shizuku was so badass. 666 weapons and 13 Grimoirs overnight? Best weapon ever.
And then there's her crazy stalker kouhai, Noriko. Best combination there.

That flight scene between Sana and Zoroku was quite magical if you ask me, and the conclusion with Minnie C and those moments afterwards felt quite dreamlike (almost like the entire show ended or something) and I swear I love the soundtrack for this show. It's so good.

Cannot wait to see just what happens afterwards. I don't think things are quite over yet...

And what's with that Snickers ad placement???

Well. One can very well treat this as the final episode since things have been tied up pretty well now.
I'm pretty amazed at how quickly the situation got turned around, with that amount of man and firepower there shouldn't have been even a struggle between the two sides.

Not too interested in a full on slice of life so we'll see how things go.

Yesssss this is all I thought about when I saw this.
Yamata trying to use her Red Queen powers turns into Zoroku because she's hungry.

Snickers! my favorite.

Super anime maid, that was pretty cool to watch. Shizuku kicked ass.

Nice to see those 3 living peacefully as a family.

What happen now though? The organization has been stopped for now but there is still 7 episodes left.

This episode was brought to you by Snickers. Snickers get some nut ~


Overall pretty good episode, i doubt this will be the end of the whole cooperation. They probably were able to delete everything regarding the Alice research in time. Though i do wounder where the series will go from here.

I dont think it's the last episode.
I checked their website and it seems like the next episode will be a recap of ep 1-5 hence there is no title card next episode.

And if there is a recap, doesn't that mean the rating is good?? I dont think this series is bad at all. It's actually one of the series this season that i really enjoy.(Besides Eromanga Sensei,AOT, and Re-Creators i guess.. I enjoy this series even more than Re-Creators TBH. Just my opinion. xD )

We're not sure where are they now but i'm pretty sure the other kids are being taken care of well. I hope. Sana-chan is just different because she's being monitored in a more better environment thank Zouroku for that. But Sana's situation is ofcourse, still on the red. The people opposition to her on the top is most likely still target her. It's true that Sana-chan is very lucky.

Wonderful episode. LOL that product placement of Snickers. Well it sure helped.

DAMN Ichijo is a badass using her weapons. Minnie C is so dangerous with those arms.

Glad Sana is a part of Zouroko's family.

4/5

Probably the best episode of the series thus far. Ichijou vs Mini C was better than I had anticipated. Though seeing ALL THOSE ARMS flying at Ichijou was a bit much.

Ichijou is a freaking bad ass though. I would LOVE to see her get more screen time and get more information about her character though. She's a clear #1 favorite character in this series for me.

This episode felt like a finale which its a bit odd but I can't complain much. This was a very good episode and I enjoy this series a lot. Ichijou is super awesome. Mini C is a great antagonist (everyone RAGED over her last week). Sana is pretty adorable, however I think Sanae is more lovable. Just her facial reactions to things were great.

Whats next is beyond me but I feel like things might get a little rough with the way this episode ended. I get the feeling that Sana won't get to experience all those things when the season ends.

Well, they definitely made up for the slow episodes the last 2 weeks.

Bitch got what she deserved.

...well maybe not enough... It would've been better if she got wrecked to the point she lost her power permanently and then held in custody and had inhumane experiments performed on her...

The conclusion is perfect to not only end an arc, but also an anime.

I don't mind the product placement but it's certainly odd to see real brand use in an anime rather than the classical WacDonalds type.

Interesting episode, really enjoy Ichijou's power. The ending felt final for some reason, almost rushed. Will be curious where they go from here.

First Carls Jr and now Snickers!!! But seriously it was a very good episode and a nice conclusion to that story arc. I hope they don't go back to the format of episode 2 where Sana and Sanae are just messing around pointlessly but I guess we'll have to wait and see!
I shall rule over the realms of anime and manga! Mwahhahahahaha!!!
