Akatsuki, that lucky bastard. Hanging out in the hot springs while other hot girls like Kiriha Kisaki come tease him. I'm not even surprised that Yukina just walked on them in a misunderstanding...

Action seemed decent but the enemies from this episode felt like they were on another level. I guess this episode is building up for the big finale? Akatsuki finding himself at a tough spot at the end there.

Does anyone know what song plays around 17:23 of episode 8? It starts right after he bites Glenda/Yukina :P

I have watched about a third of the episode, but my Japanese is simply not good enough. So I will watch the episode when it is subbed, and leave the raw alone for now =P

At this point I don’t see how they would tie all of the lose end in the last OVA/episode 8 I don’t know the source material (I’m an anime viewer) but I think it is too much for one episode to cover... I hope I’m wrong… let's see in the next episode...

I like Ibliss, his little banter with Vatler was the best part of the episode.

The Kisaki, Kujou scene was so cliched I knew Yukina was gonna interrupt that scene. For a person who asks Kisaki what she was doing in the men's bath, I wonder what Yukina herself was doing there? XD

So Grenda is a dragon, there was some theorizing regarding what exactly Avalon is based on the appearance of these Knights of the Sinful God.
JSDF seems to be Knights under the Sinful God as well.

Don't know how all this is gonna end in the next episode but let's see.

After a month of waiting, the series is back on track. To be honest, I liked that the fanservice didn't detract from the plot or character development; especially given the gaps between episode releases. Grenda, Ibliss and the Sword Shaman girls seem like interesting additions to the series, but for once, Kojou doesn't get the limelight stolen from him, something I didn't take kindly to in the previous episode.

Oh damn, one more episode left. Wonder how they're gonna wrap it all up.

Decent episode.

So, usually the guy walks in onto the girls, or tries to listen in etc.

But now Koujo is guilty for being in the mens bath when both Kisaki and Yukina (who also brought a lot of other girls..for reasons) come in, unannounced on top?

For a moment i thought they'd break the trope, with Yukina first talking about Kisaki, but they immediately went back on track with full force..

It's of course funny *sometimes*, but over and over, and even i situations like this..

Whats next, her breaking down the locked bathroom door and moving aside the shower curtain barely a minute after he went in for the sole purpose of calling him a pervert or what?

God I love characters like Kiriha. Such a tease. Shame Kojou didn't get to add her to his harem of girls hes sucked off. She even offered too.

Kiriha tease... what a lucky guy Kojou is.

So the Knights of the Sinful God have infiltrated the JSDF and are trying to get Avalon and they also want Grenda who is some kind of a dragon.

What disappointment... a swimsuit under that towel!
Look who walked off just before the baddies attacked... and one of them was clearly female. Suspect?

Yukina seeing what she saw...

Kisaki is definitely best girl, not like that is a big achievement with the other girls being rather bad.

I feel like Kirihara Kisaki is acting just like Senjougahara Hitagi when she teased Koujo.

Cultists, great. As if they didn't have enough problems already. But at least the gang is (almost) back together. Ibliss is great too.

Dat boy.
Descendant of the 2nd Progenitor? Foregazer?
Ibliss Bal-Aziz.
Kiriha in dat towel.
Dat just kidding. Let me see the oppai!
She's in a bikini? I have been hoodwinked, bamboozled, led astray, run amok, and flat out deceived.
Kojou grabbing Kiriha.
Yukina and co. see.
Dat Wyvern.
Damn! Gajou took that spear.

I need to see Kiriha naked.

Holy crap. I didn't expect to finish this episode over a month later. I was stuck at the 9 min mark and tried to continue every night but couldn't until now. I think I ran out of gas.
If you see that my post is exactly 1 month old (or more) from when it was posted... Don't waste your time, especially when you want to reply with something petty & insignificant. Assume that I've moved on (because I have).

Poor Kojou, getting hit just because the girls decided to enter the men's bath and saw his weener.

Beneath an unsinkable black sun.
Through the boundless gloom.
