Loved it. My prediction was right that Matthew became the neko murderer >.<
So sad. I'm glad they were set free. But this means that evil sorcerer would likely appear later on :3

My fave part was when Elias licked Chise's neck wound *heart eyes* Super sexy ;D ;D

I wish someone would lick my neck like that.

Wow, drinking another being’s blood can fuck your shit up. No surprise there. Crazy goddamn alchemist.

I love cats very much so this episode was a bit painful to watch but it ended positively!
I'm Bruneian and I like anime. And Manchester United. And fat cats.

Interesting and very engaging episode, poignant even at the end. The twists even this time are missing, great!

Mathew and Mina's story was beautiful, not for the cats though.

Good thing that Chise did not get swayed by the talk of people who hold a dagger to her throat, that happens too often in anime. Wonder if we'll see that sorcerer from the past again, what a scumbag.

It was pretty obvious from the last episode that Matthew went Jason Voorhees on those cats. Still, seeing him slaughter cats was unsettling. I feel sick to my stomach whenever I see animals and children being abused whether it's fictional or not.

I understand that he did for his wife but I still can't sympathize with him. I don't feel sorry for Mina much since we don't know much about her either except that she's frail, likes her pet Tim who is the king and turned into caca after drinking kitty blood.

I want to see that demon again though. He cute. At least Molly didn't die, the little girl can have a kitty mama.
There is no such thing as an Anime elitist. You watch Anime, therefore, you are trash by society's standards.

Being deceived sucks especially if your doing it out of blind love. To only do more harm than good. Well I can't say I feel bad for those cats getting slaughtered though. We do it all the time with other animals. Life is only for those who seek death. Death is life. How we live in between is up to us.

Behold of my awesomeness~

Wow, this show is mesmerizing. The high fantasy/slice of life paring is magnificent, the atmosphere is beautiful and almost hypnotic, and the poignant and macabre moments as Chise is forced to confront death and tragedy... I think I might love this show.

My heart almost broke when I thought Chise was going to have to obliterate them and also sacrifice Molly... she’s so deeply scarred, yet still cares for others so much. I don’t think she believes in her own happiness, but I do think she believes in protecting others’ happiness. Now that she knows her time is limited, I wonder if it’ll even change anything in her. She’s the type to self sacrifice everything, valuing every life except her own and bringing about her own self-destruction in the process. Hopefully Elias can protect her, not only from others but from herself.

tl;dr Chise is my baby girl, please protect her at all costs. Let her learn to love herself.

Phenomenal episode again, this show is off to an even better start than I remembered and I really loved the start too when I was watching it weekly. Chise's scene when declining the option to be free by Renfred, stating that Elias was the first person to recognize her as family and see the value of who she really is rather than abuse her physically and psychologically and wanting to throw her out, or betray her by taking their own life like her very own mother. She may be dying early but given everything that happened, she would rather die with someone who called her genuinely like family than leave that.

The story with Matthew and Mina was pretty tragic but sadly, stories like these are far too common even in the real world. Matthew doing anything in his power to help his wife cure her illness, but sadly just meeting the wrong person to give advice to him, which led to both his and his wife's downfall at the very end when the potion Matthew made from killing cats and using their extra lives per say, failed and just made her wife explode and die in the process. The cat king even had to take him out since he was too much of a demon to be alive, despite him knowing how Matthew was a great person who just fell into the wrong hands and bought into the demon's methods per say.

Atleast Chise with the assistance of the fairies, managed to help cleanse Matthew and Mina and carry them to the afterlife where the corruption that held them in darkness for eternity would no longer be the barrier between them and finding peace in the afterlife. The scene where they met each other again, and embraced in the afterlife with the help of the wind was really touching, the way the show's able to craft stories like these with new characters is astounding and Chise's the perfect kind of character to help them and grow herself while still showing a genuine personality already too already. Violet Evergarden's character has nothing at all in comparison to Chise Hatori for me. Glad to see everything go well as Chise's potential as a mage really is blossoming, and so is her loyalty to Elias, who has exposed Chise to a world where she can grow out of her shell and develop her own character through learning many people's different experiences and knowledge and using her powers to assist them out.

Also, the music and animation was stellar as usual again, especially during the final scene with Matthew and Mina happily and tearfully reunite in the afterlife in a powerful scene. The audiovisual presentation has been outstanding so far like the content.

by far my least favorite episode. had to skip through the end of the backstory and most of the "purification" at the end. once we saw the black goo form and the cats kill the dude, it became a total snooze fest
