Sanae is such a nice person, always being the voice of reason for the younger girls. Sana is also getting better with the twins and I find that kinda cute.

Seems that Sana isn't so forgiving of Hatori from what she did last time. Hatori's role in this episode gave me some chills as she is trying to isolate others from her. Episode also really gave me some Alice in Wonderland vibe with Sana's big entrance.

Well the first half sleepover with the twins was fucking adorable. Especially Sana tearfully glomping all over Zouroku whenever he was around. Hattori avoiding the cops while Ayu-chan falls victim to the Cheshire Cat head of doom was...odd. The Alice in the show's title definitely feels more apt however. XD

The girls had a fun sleepover. Sana is clinging more to Zouroku after what happened. She is so worried about him. Hatori wants to be isolated forever, but Ayu-chan would not accept that. He fell into a big hole while trying to find Sana, but instead she found him. She is going to teach him a lesson.

Nice episode.

Sana was still a little worried after the events of last episode, but after hearing that the twins were staying over she sure brightened up. The sleepover was pretty fun to watch.

Meanwhile Hattori decides to shut herself in at home and Ayu is trapped by an Alice in Wonderland version of Sana?

Let's hope Ayu can get Sana to help her save Hattori from shutting herself in forever.

I'm getting worried about how they will close the story in three episodes. There's good amount of stuff being unexplained, yet it is definitely being brought up here and there (talking about Sana randomly forgetting stuff).

Also the twins apparently ''switched places''? The white haired kid was also never brought up again.

Eh, not an especially exciting episode really, mainly cos I don't care about Hatori in the slightest. I'm hoping the rest of the series isn't just focused on her so much, but it seems likely that it will be unfortunately.

This show would be amazing if you could just delete Sana out of it. Most of the other characters are kind of cool. But then Sana ruins every scene she's in, and it's like watching and listening to chalk scrape against a chalk board.

The cute witch did nothing wrong, sana is a cold blooded murderer in the making.
Zouroku didn't teach her any morals.

its near the finale yet we still didnt see the other kids' powers.
those sana cute moments just have to be once is enough. repeatedly is unnecessary.
can anyone explain the "switched" for the twins?

Well the more I see them, the more I am loving the twins. Since they have become Sana's friends again, I am just loving the relationship they have. They are all so cute, and Sanae agrees.

Now than it feels like Sana is the antagonist of the arc, she kidnapped someone like she is Minnie C. And she kidnapped the wrong person, Sana needs to control her anger or else she will become someone she doesn't want to become.

Sana refusing to let Zouroku out of her sight was adorable. Loved that scene where she kept hugging him all over the house. And seeing the twins so surprised at her growth and so proud of her progress was a treat as well. The first half of the entire episode was one adorable moment after another. Absolutely loved it!

Looking forward to seeing how Sana will be able to solve the other girl's problem.

Nice to see Sana is really enjoying her life and being good friends with Yonagi & Asahi.

Good thing Yonaga has really long hair, I wouldn't be able to tell them apart otherwise.

Kinda feel sorry for that boy, his best friend turned him away and now he has to face Sana.

I hope those 2 can work together to help Hatori out.

I liked the half with Sana, Sanae, and the twins the most, though the second half was also good. It was nice seeing Sana adapting into the family. She's responsible and does her chores without complaint. The twins have become much nicer since being freed from the research facility. I agree that Sanae is the best influence on the younger kids. They even obey her without whining when she shushes them. Sanae wishes she could join in with the girl's sleepover.

Nice fluffy lighthearted episode for the most part with a bath scene and a slumber party so cute! Hatori is committing to a life of solitude because she veiws herself as the evil witch but I really feel bad for her and her friend. I hope Sana finds a way to turn Hatori back around. The alice and wonderland bit was a loose conection up until now but with that amazing ending they really committed to the theme for the first time in the anime. I look forward to seeing where the story progresses from here on out.

Wonderful episode.

Sana ecstatic to have Asahi & Yonaga stay over for the night. The twins are so amazed at how much she has changed.

Sana missing Zouroko so much is adorable.
Hattori keeping people away.

Sana capturing Ayu in her wonderland. Hope she doesn't go to far.

Oh my, this is getting so interesting and fun. I did not expect any of this, but this plot arc is bloody amazing.

Sana obviously read or watched Alice in Wonderland, and thus we have the "Alice" of the show's title, and the "Red Queen (of hearts)" in which she's labelled. The Cheshire Cat thing was pretty amusing, and then she shows off her mightyness with a grand display of fantasy stuff. Just imagine the look on that other girls' face had she been the one caught in it...

The twins share consciousness. They have to identify eachother as individuals in order to differentiate eachother. They switched because they weren't paying attention to who was who. They probably switch often, and do up their hair to fit.
I didn't get that information from external sources, reading between the lines, they gave more than enough information so far to suggest that.

Naw, Sana has smartened up and learned her boundaries & ethics. She's gonna do an amazing job and impress everyone with how she can use her abilities for good.

This episode made me wonder if Zerouko is going to die at the end of the season. Not that I want him to, I really like the old man, but it would be a logical final step in what he could teach Alice: how to say goodbye.

That encounter at the end. if things play well then they'll be fine. The problem is whether Sana willl cooperate.

Personally I wouldn't be scared of Sana after she appears in front of him(?) since it's pretty easy to deal with her.

still I'm both happy and sad. and upset and confused.

I know Sana is a kid but... seriously, come on, she's way too childish and without any empathetic for others than her friends/family.
Except them she don't care at all about the others and what they can feel, it's only about her own person, she didn't even try to speak or communicate with them... Still a stupid kid who need some lessons about life and people.

Ohhhh thats interesting, that part kind of confused me, need to pay more attention.

Anyway, his turned out really interesting, Ha-chan's whole situation was already pretty dark, but it keeps getting darker, meanwhile, Sana is putting a whole lot of effort into getting her revenge I guess. The whole thing at the end that Sana pulled off was weird but pretty funny as well, guess the Alice part of the title had to kick in at some point. I enjoyed this episode.

Rather uneventful episode, but the first half was cute, though.

Alice entrance and her laugh were great and I think this is my favorite arc so far.
Kokoro did nothing wrong.

Another great episode!
Sana was so adorable hugging Zouroku like this and like that!
Sana was awesome proactively locating one of the "evil majos" that she's referring to...
wow Naitou really specialises on humans with powers...being able to notice that they have been controlled like that is already amazing!

Nice continuation. Probably the best arc so far. Was actually surprised to see bits of Lewis Caroll's work here where they shared pretty much only the name of the girl in the first half.
