THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Jesus Christ, this episode and show just loves getting the guys beat up. A good majority of this episode has that and I don't feel anything for those characters. Even as the MC is trying to stand up against the adults, he's pushed down.

Bad writing aside, they tried to make the dark raining scenes look serious but it felt silly.

Hibiki tried to stand up for himself and everyone else, but he just got beat up. Everyone was punished because of him. No one dared to side with him. Shiori was slapped multiple times when the phone she had fell out of her pocket. Now Hibiki wants to be Shin's dog and is willing to do anything.

That was kind of just torture porn for the first half of the episode... at least MC understands the kind of situation he's in now. He turned into Rambo so I guess that's pretty cool...

Some of the animation of the training was really funny, I was dying during the bunny hops.

I'm interested to see how the show will go now that MC is finally getting his shit together and putting bricks in his jacket.

Alright finally time for the redemption arc. MC is the same dude in the OP right so it seems like he becomes "op" and starts training to fight the system. It was a tough road to get here but i kinda liked how it showed the MC (if you were paying attention) just squashing all the physical tests and was in first place almost every time. Backstory that he is actually athletic and played ball and was a tourney contender is actually kinda cool.

Okay. From this point on, I'm feeling completely apathetic towards what's going on in this anime. I don't give a shit what happens, I'm gonna keep watching this until it's over while feeling absolutely nothing.

Even when Hibiki stood up for himself, it didn't make me root for him; I still hate this character.

Work on that grammar first lol, (Tsuki ga Kirei doesn't even relate to this anime tho)

Holy fucking Cow, MC's stupidity is beyond imagination, he finally realized that the "school" is fucking nuts, but he is even more stupid trying to fix things like that... and I'll like to know how the flipping fuck did he get that amount of food and determination to hold a ball of bricks out of nowhere just by playing basketball (I don't think physics work that way when you stop practicing sport) (didn't he got also severely punished with those punches he received?, how is he able to move like that? lol)

This anime also shows the lack of physics and details on "fighting" scenes, I felt like I was watching a rag doll fight with an extreme lack of impact xD

Wow, this was some hot garbage. Character arcs? Development? Consistency? What are those? Let's just make the MC trying to be badass in one moment, a pussy the next and then back to badass. Where the hell did he get all the food to bribe the students? It was made quite clear that good food is hard to come by there. Also, the chinese showing off that """"""""""ANIMATION QUALITY""""""""""" where hits with a jacket full of bricks carry the same impact as a slap to the face.

I think I'm going to do myself a favor and drop this.

The question is not how did the food appear, is how the fuck he manage to carry that without being catched

A hit with a jacked full of bricks would have probably broke the neck of those he hit

The MC thought that by provoking the instructors to try to kill him.
Turns out, these guys are so crazy they'll kill the students, AND punish other students for what someone else does.
That he couldn't predict.

the show is pretty okay, it's decent, nothing great but it seems like alot of people on MAL here really goes to great length to critizise a show,

yes the art isn't great, the humor is kinda weird, but its still enjoyable, so why all the negatives?

He would have guessed that by seeing how his roommates were almost starving and no one ever gave a fuck, tho that's their fault for not sacrificing taste for survival, but still

The show has a lot of problems, but i'm still interested in the way they go forward and how they explain more of the things in this show.
The worst part of this episode was:
1. the sound, good god these 'slaps' sound like wet noodles hitting the floor, probably the worst part of the entire show
2. the animation, it is not as bad as the sound, but it still lacks impact ... a lot of it
3. while some characters are interesting, Shiori and the purple haired bossy guy, the rest of the cast is so bland it is basically non existant, including the main character that is also as intelligent as bread

All in all i'm still intruiged to see where this is going, but i also have a soft spot for social experiments in story form, so that might not go for anyone else.

There were 2 hints of Hibiki being a track and field athelete. Ep 1 as flashback showed him running in the track with field outfit. Ep 3 as Shiori questioned him quitting running. He was not a basketball player despite that room having plenty of balls.

There are also 3 moments in this episode where people check time. 2 with Hibiki and 1 with "big bro". So the plan is kinda obvious.

So this episode basically consists of people get the shit beaten out of them and MC trying to become alpha.
One Piece episode 914 & 915 were a mistake and 957 brought the salvation

This episode just showed how very poor the quality of this anime's animation. Jeez. It's almost like a fan-made, but because of the story and the characters (which is much better than the shit Ousama Game), I'll still watch this since it's bearable.

Hibiki criticized the whole system by venting out on that big bald buff guy. Lmfao. Shiori was caught having that cellphone. Hibiki's classmates were punished because of his actions then Shiori was slapped by her classmates, and Shiori hates Hibiki now. Lmao.

Afterwards, Hibiki asked Shin to become his dog and told him that he'll become his dog under three conditions: 1) Become the leader of his class; 2) Oust Wudo from his position as discipline officer; and the third was heck we'll know next time. Haha.

It's almost like everyone wants to become an Alpha in that school and everyone wants to beat each other down. I wonder what Hibiki's skill Shin was pertaining to? Because he's an athlete? Idk, maaan.

Decent episode. I liked it.

still interesting developments
If spend less time on repetitive punishments & annoying playing hero (& dragging everyone else down), it could be better.
Well no hero but a motivated dog now.

I had some slight hope that it would improve after watching ep 2, but this episode was pretty much nothing but violence porn. I'm out.

Great episode, the first half was really needed, I started missing the brutality from the first ep.

Most importantly I still dont know what exact direction the story will take, really interesting

Well, finally the MC is doing something istead crying and "I'll help you Shidori". Its true that is because someone else orders, but is something.

Yea, that's great & all but holy shit was this sudden. Less than half an ep for him to already start his journey towards the leader of his class. And I dearly hope he'll show how to get his hands on all of those foodstuffs ~ I guess Shin gave em to him?

Best episode so far. The less the "humour" the better. At least MC is having the same goal as in the first EP. He just decided to fight instead of protect. Could be handled better but it is not as bad as everybody make it.

the show is pretty okay, it's decent, nothing great but it seems like alot of people on MAL here really goes to great length to critizise a show,


I would still rate it 5 or 6 out of ten, but it is quite enjoyable.

At least Hibiki has learned to stand up for himself. Even if was the worst thing he could do in that situation.

How he tricked the fat bastard was nice. He got, what he deserved. Well, if Hibiki hadn't done it, Shiori would have messed him up sooner or later. She isn't a person to take humiliation lightly.

I'm watching this for the anime watching challenge, and it's awful. This was the best episode by far and it was still shit. I will say it was hard to watch the others being beaten for his mistake. That's a real torture tactic that is used, and it kills me every time I see it.
