THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
I don't think anyone in this show is trustworthy. Sadly, Hibiki doesn't really have any allies at this point so he has to do a lot for himself.

I can't take Shiori seriously at all in this show. Her role has been very underwhelming.

The cliffhanger was awkward as hell. So abrupt.

Hibiki managed to defeat Wudo and gained the trust of the head instructor. His roommates won't help him anymore. There are some very odd subplots going on. Instructor Ryo is looking for a cell phone, Shin wants Hibiki to target class six and class eighteen wants Shiori's help.

The animation quality drops even lower, but I'm not gonna drop this anime because all male instructors are hot and muscular. Even though head instructor Shian seems to be 'submissive', but I'll take that as a good thing too. Mobile phone dealer 'Yoh' in class six is interesting too.

Talking about the chance that Evil or Live might be the candidate for 'the best worst anime ever', though this title is highly competitive when Chinese animation industry takes part too.

Wait what? That was where they chose to end this episode!?

It felt like the show was going in circles this episode with little getting done.
At least we learn why Shin is so powerful and the hierarchy of the guards.

Kinda glad that Wudo is out of the show because maybe there will be less of the excessive violence.

I hope it regains it's footing next week because this one was pretty underwhelming compared to the first four.

Doood, this anime is a Masterpiece, let me sum it up to you: In fact, the parents that sent their sons in that facility found an outstanding offer of "get your son back from Internet addiction in our 5 stars facility" on a cereal box, but instead, they were sent into a Sadist Facility, it is way too easy to notice, even the "instructors" instructs themselves, just look at how much pleasure Shian had when that woman was whipping his ass lmao.

Btw, Shin was drinking a EMPTY vase lmao, also, when Shian was "kicking" Wudo on the floor, he looked like he was dancing, does that facility also includes dancing classes?
Just give them a pair of over sized breasts and a happy ending and they'll oink for more every time

The last two episodes have had such abrupt endings that it makes me wonder if the Chinese version of the show has different runtimes, and the Japanese verison is just pasting episodes together and cutting off at whatever point fits the timeslot.

The show is slowly decaying. I wonder what the final episode will look like.

Almost nothing significant happened this episode, but we were introduced with a few new characters.

Shin's room, though. Who the hell is this man anyway? And what makes him a superior and special? Lmfao.

I s2g the animation of this show is getting worse each episode, it started bothering me. Pffft.

So, one of the instructors is in bed with this girl (Jin or whatever). Most likely literally. It's not surprising though, since all the smartphones have to come somewhere.

The headmistress is a dominatrix and likes to whip the prime musclehead. That was actually hilarious. She believes everything/everyone can be fixed by inflicting pain.

I'm curious, how Hibiki will deal with the next target.

Meanwhile, Shiori was approached in an "anime typical" way. Loli and buff Imouto want to take over the girl's classes and ultimately the school.

I'm also curious about Shin's apparent sickness. And that one dude really wants to kill him.

I'm kinda asking myself if that Wudo guy is even alive after that beating he got O_o xD but at the same time the head instructor seems to enjoy his whooping.

Hibiki is targeting class six now,wonder how he's going to approach them.

Slow motion, speech scenes without mouth movement, dubbing out of rhythm. Cool, now we have a loli '-'.

Hibiki's next target is Class Six. An okay episode overall. Not as good as the previous episode.

Animation quality and plot holes aside, i think it's a pretty good show about psychology of humans both working and locked down in a 'correctional facility'. The general outlook reminds me very much of soviet 'gulag' forced labor camp. We have guys running illegal business, we have guys trying to lay low and just get through their one year 'sentence'. We have maniacal instructors, as well as corrupt ones. The only thing that is missing so far is a group with an escape plan.

Why was I not surprised that the Headmistress was a sadist?

I have many concerns with this show, but I'm not sure about the part where parents are paying this school to beat the crap out of their kids. Unless they don't know about the crap beating part, but even then, I assume there's some sort of sadistic joy in watching this show?

That aside, this show works strangely, where there's a good sense of unpleasantness about just simply watching, as everyone is a terrible person one way or another. The show itself is also disjointed, where it can have public stripping and shaming in one scene, then comedic puking and a strange romantic-but-not-really moment right after. Now it's about asserting dominance in this prison? This may be a school made for spawning professional gangsters or violent businessmen, rather than any sort of productive member of society.
