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.


the organization is not ended, remember they cooperating with many other evil organization for evil business with sana chan power. i believe who back up those evil plan using sana chan power will appear soon.

by the way...
this episode give tears to my eyes very heart warming ;w;

this episode deserve 10/10

Wow, I didn't think that conflict would be seemingly solved in one episode with the whole organization disbanded. A couple episodes of peace then something else will come ruin the good time.

this episode felt too much like a finale imo, i just kind of assumed that the point of making it feel like a finale was so that there would be more shock factor when shit hits the fan again.

i liked minnie c as a villain and i kind of wanted a little more back story, it fucking broke my heart when she said "how long have i been alone" when she realizes that her husband's arms aren't real.

i predict something bad happening between sana x sanae for the next arc. maybe sanae being kidnapped by someone who worked at the research facility and given the dreams of alice to use as a weapon against the red queen. idk, would be cool

DO MY EYES DECIEVE ME OR WAS THAT AN ACTUAL SNICKERS!? That was one decently long battle, and a pretty dang good one at that. The CG was noticeable but wasn't as bad as the cars in my opinion. And it was ultimately a pretty happy ending.
A Wild and Small Otaku has Appeared!

How Shizuku get her ability?Is the power of her card about recording things and then it picked up the power of the maid in the anime she is watching?

Snickers bar best cgi 10/10. Maid Shizuku is the best, took Minnie C down, finally.

Minni C's a United States Marine, not a Japanese civilian like the rest. Different rules apply.

Well I saw the special and giving what they say about part 2, I am a little upset. They are introducing these new characters with the Dream of Alice powers, but sounds like they just dropping the silver haired boy and the twins from the series, I want to know what happened to them, are they okay?

OMG! Ichijou is too overpowerd! She is basically a human weapon with 666 weapons and 13 grimoires inside that storage powers of hers.
Not even the likes of Minnie C was able to handle her, she wasn't really a match to Ichijou!
At least we go back to the relaxing life of Zouroku, Sana & Sanae!
WOW! the "SNICKERS" wasn't edited at all!
Looks like enemies/opposing forces lay-low for a bit!
Sana was adorable singing while watering the flowers.
and Sanae was so moe'd to Sana! it was cute!
5/5!

This show is seriously hurt by all the supernatural, action sequences or superpowers drama. Would it be lightheated kind of show with young girl trying to cope up with the unknown of the world and about her relation to aging man, it would be like 100x better.

First half of this episode was pure trash but the second part where feels kicked was nice. I really hope there would be no conflicts now, at least for a while.

Precisely. I can respect that they tried to do something a little different with this show, but it just doesn't work. It isn't nearly aesthetically pleasing enough (nor does it have good enough direction) to warrant extensive supernatural action scenes. It doesn't help that most of the "plot" so far has been nonsensical padding.

I'm still hanging on by a thread due to some likeable characters and the more pleasing SoL scenes, though. Let this be a lesson that most of the time, simple really is best.

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

Is Cleo a boy or a girl? The character looks like a boy, but in the first episode they talked about "Wonderland" being the playground of the these girls (kanojo-tachi), so I assumed all the Dreams of Alice were women. So far all the ability users were female, yet Cleo is confusing me.

In the special that aired in place of episode 6 last week, they confirmed it was a girl. Even Akio, who voices Zouroku, was surprised and thought it was a boy lol.

Really? That confirms my suspicions but now I'm confused, because the official website refers to him as a boy.

Hm that's odd. Maybe the VA's got it wrong in the special then. Since they only mentioned it after revealing the VA for Cleo and it's not unusual for a young boy to be voiced by a female in anime. Anyways we'll most likely fine out tomorrow when episode 6 airs or the episode after that depending on when Cleo is introduced.

That the heck were those hands..

Anyway, it was a pretty nice episode. Could've been the ending of the show. This anime hasn't really been what I hoped it would be so far, it has been more of an action thing rather than slice of life / fantasy which I thought it would be. Maybe things will change now when the bad guys are gone?.... I hope so.
It's only a passing thing, this shadow. Even darkness must pass. A new day will come. And when the sun shines it will shine out the clearer.

A solid episode, but it doesn't build a lot of confidence for me in moving forward. This episode resolved pretty much every tension the series had up to this point, and didn't set up anything going forward. The organization fell so easily that it wouldn't feel appropriate to see them again, especially considering Minnie C looked to be their main operative and she was thoroughly defeated this episode.

There's an opportunity for this anime to do something special, but there is a greater one for it to fail.

A great follow up on the previous episode, quite the intense battle as well for the first half and really a proper progression in the second! Totally looking forwards to see what's going to happen next!
