THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Interesting to see Sana develop her powers more and she seems to even enjoy using it.

Pretty lighthearted episode especially after the previous short arc.
I just love how curous Sana is about all the things going around her. She's behaving exactly how people would expect her to now and she seems like a normal kid.

Indeed, but definitely a relaxingly refreshing episode to open up the next part of the story. Nice haircut Sana. ;) Sweet walk home carried by Zouroku too. Along with Sanae the three make such a nice family. Honestly wouldn't mind if it continued like this. :)

That was really sweet, really wish that all the troubles ended with the last ep, and that following episodes are that the rest of the Dream of Alices join their happy little family.

On a diffrent note, I have to know, Yakuza boss + Highschool Girl, how in the world did that happen? I need to know so bad.

Really sweet and adorable episode. :)

I'm with Sanae, sad to see Sana's beautiful hair get cut like that but she looks cute anyway so fine I guess. xD

It was nice to see Sana learning what it means to be family, the bath scene with Sana was just so adorable. The walk home with Zoroku was also very nice.

The final scene with her officially being adopted was great and I'm glad the three of them are family now.

Personally I'd love for the show to continue with more sweet and heartwarming episodes like this one.

Such a sweet episode. Sana learned many things like family and marriage. She got her hair cut because she keeps stepping on it. It looks nice. I'm glad she's officially part of the family.

Amaama to Inazuma vibes instantly when i saw the second half. This is what i wanted from this series and also expected from the beginning. Continue to the end with this and it might end up in my top 5 non-sequels after all.

Now that is more like what I expected from this Anime. But what a shift of tone compared to the previous episodes.

I definitely wouldn't mind if the rest of the show is like this episode! Sanae and Sana are just the cutest cinnamon rolls and grumpy grandpa is best grandpa. And now they are all a family, I just can't take the adorableness ~ !!

10/10 pure gold, beautiful episode.
JC Staff should stay only with slice of life series.
I'm raising my score for this show.

Brilliant episode, and a really nice return to the slice-of-life side of things for this show. Hopefully it continues like this for a long time to come yet, as the show is definitely at its best like this.

Anyone who has read the manga can fill us in about what happens from here?

Honestly, I would love the story to go on like this.

This was a beautiful SoL episode. I loved the interactions that Sana had with everyone here. Heartwarming to the fullest.

Man Sana is by far one of the most annoying Anime characters I've ever encountered. Like, good job, you made her just as irritating as a real child and made her character intolerable as a result, and now they've cut her hair into a hideous style so she isn't even that cute anymore.

I'm really disappointed with this show. It could have been cool, but it's gotten really hard to watch now.

Wonderful! This is what this series should have been from the start - excellent slice-of-life! I really enjoyed this episode, it was the best one so far!

In retrospective, it would be a lot better if they rushed all the action in previous episode and ended the second episode when the last one did.. two episode would be more than enough for the intro. And the rest of the series could have been such heartwarming stories only.
It would be a lot better series if the did that.

btw - do we really get to see her coming to a school maybe? In the ending she certainly looks older. Timeskip the next time maybe?

Absolutely delightful episode. Being so proud of her new name, her curiosity, and her constant striving to understand and achieve the goals set by Zorouku were charming.

This show definitely does better when it sticks to slice of life like it did here. TBH I think the more serious/action-y half is pretty weak, but there were some nice moments in this one.

Though, why would Sana use her powers to start floating because she was too tired to even want to walk? Wouldn't flying just take more energy? (That's even assuming her comment in Ep. 2 about the powers taking "immense energy" only applies to summoning things.) I guess it's possible her feet were just sore, but they could have just said that instead.

All right episode I guess, we needed a cool down episode. No Ichijo what a let down.

While I don't mind some slice of life, I have questions that need to be addressed, mainly what happened to the other kids, where is the silver haired boy and the twins, we need to know. Heck even 4 eyes I want to know what he is up to, personally I could see 4 eyes getting a redeemed, at least more likely than Minnie.

Lovely episode.

Wonderful to see Sana interact with Zouroku & Sanae as well as get use to her surroundings.
Her new haircut is nice.

Zouroku adopting Sana into the family was great.

Zouroku is so wonderful. He's the reason I'm still watching. When he brought up the adoption topic, I couldn't handle it.

Such a heart warming episode. Alice living a care free life and her getting adopted. Although I have a bad feeling it won't stay like this for long and the research people will be back.

Nice episode SOL episode, nice Bob cut :D.

So many comments around the web asking for it to stay SOL only. I definitely enjoyed a break from the leg shooting gun toting action we just had though.

I guess I have a dissenting opinion but I like consistency and think the show would be best as a continued mixed bag. Can't imagine not getting to see Ichijou kick ass again or Sana becoming a badass in a fight one day.


I do think that it'll most likely not stick with the SoL till the end since this episode in itself is a big tone shift after the previous arc. It'll continue being a mix of both .

Guess it'll have to stick with that format, even to the dismay of some/many. Personally I enjoyed the SoL a lot more but that's just my opinion since J.C. Staff isn't the best in action scenes from what I've seen.

My god, Sana is just as annoying and lovable as a real child. It's great. This was a really sweet episode, but I must say, she shouldn't have had her hair cut so low.

NOW THIS IS MORE LIKE IT! I was almost giving up on this show for being weird action instead of slice of life which I expected it to be... but it's making an awesome comeback! Good stuff. Best episode for sure.

Agreed.

Really wonder what they are gonna do with the last 6 episodes, personally I'd even like if this was the last episode since I was not that invested in the dreams of Alice.

A balance of happy feel good feelings with Sana slowly developing into a real human girl, and learning new things! I find that adorable!

(I am pretty sure crazy magic stuff will happen eventually, but hopefully nothing brutal in the future....)
