THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Wow, M's reactions this episode gave me a totally different impression of who he like before.

That silliness aside, we still got a bunch of action. It felt like the episode's fighting still feels generally teh same though even at this point. Really wish they changed something up. LLLEN's training did pay off though.

I also noticed the episode made moments that really tried to bring out the characters' movesets. And damn, LLEEN can be a little scary when she gets intensely serious.

So he's extremely afraid of Hikasa-san's character that does timid action.

She lets him go and she acts alone. One on one gun fight, no there are more. She hurts badly, though.

Gun talking to her when she realized she shouldn't run away.

The guy joins for support. Her gun also sacrificed to protect her. They won.

The high school girl group that she always pass through admires her. One of the girls is the huge girl that she fought against at the end.

Lot of mixed feelings about this episode, parts of it were really good and some of it was just insanely contrived.

I'm not sure what M's deal, looks like his complete change in demeanor was not related any plan or anything and he just gets scared of Pitou? It's kinda weird that they just destroyed his cool guy character just like that.

Some of the fight scenes were great but some parts of the battle with Boss vs LLENN just felt contrived especially the part where she just shoots into the scanner which is an immortal object and the end where she uses the P-90 to block all of the Boss's shots. I mean when the entire shooting mechanic is based of that aim assist system that has a huge crosshair and assuming the bullet goes randomly into that circle, it's just contrived that she somehow always shot the scanner and that somehow all her shots were blocked by the P90. Well no point in talking about it now.

I noticed M-san said 'Boku' at the end there, is he possibly a kid?

Nooo! Why'd you cut your hair Karen? T.T
It's kinda cool that the kids were actually the final opponents.

I really liked the episode apart from the one on one fight. Both Eva and LLENN get a bit to unlucky with how many times they completely miss their shots while within arms reach, and I think it started to feel a bit unreal, but that could just be me. All in all though, I really enjoyed it.

Talking P-chan xD


Episode was pretty cool to watch again,unfortunately the writing doesn't match that.


Pitou becoming the antagonist like the opening implied.
One Piece episode 914 & 915 were a mistake.

Hmm the letter from Pito sure is full of threats thats for sure. Llenn and M's battle against Eva's team though was intense but at least she had the opportunity to use the knife skills that she was taught. That was well deserved victory for Llenn and M though. Looks like Llenn realises the tactics that she should stick to to be most effective. An interesting episode that showed an interesting side to M's character as well as showing the development that Llenn has undergone as a result of her time in SJ. The personification of her gun was funny though. The scene in the end with the schoolgirls was interesting though. So both realise who they really were in GGO huh.

Finally confirmation of P-chan being best girl. RIP

There is no way an experienced team could forget about LLENN has a teammate. They were literally just shooting at them at the lake. The leader of the team had some real trashy aim.

Again we saw LLENN spamming her abnormal speed with tiny body. At least she is pretty smart and can think on the spot.

uhm, so many questions...

-she's fast enough to dodge a bullet and not fast enough to dodge a kick?
-immortal object? a piece of player's body? clothing?
-ok, immortal object, why shoot the same spot over and over?
-she missed point blank from p90? that needs a lot of effort to do that
-even though she shots a straight line of bullets from range..
-knifing legs affects persons body and she falls down on knees, llenn gets shot multiple times, doesn't give a fuck, nice

well, what am i even complaining about, such a shitty writing couldn't apply under normal game logic

upd: also, that bullet to bullet scene was just like evangelion's one, but it didn't affect the bullet trajectory, sadly

Not bad entertainment wise, but the action got a bit repetitive this episode for me. Still, I didn't hate this episode so creds to them.

The action scenes were pretty cool in this episode, even if some of it was pretty farfetched. Besides, once you hear that insert song, the MC powers up by a factor of 11 and becomes unbeatable, so it makes sense that LLENN got pretty lucky at times. Also, I liked the final scene where she met the Boss player in real life.

She found more friends, and they were her enemies from the final.

This was a really good episode, the action was quite cool. Karen managed to defeat most of that team by herself, but M helped out as well. P-chan got destoryed :( The group of kids at the end is the team she fought against in GGO lol.

"Chekov's Gun"



Still one contrived Chekov's Gun. Though I do question characters wearing body armor not counted as "Immortal object". Maybe if it's part of character's avatar then it doesn't count?

1: she can see the line so that she can think ahead of time to dodge it, the kick has no line to show its about to come at her
2: Its the scanner, were you not paying attention?
3: She didn't realise it was an immortal object at first, which would of been obvious if you pay'd any attention
4: Again, she dodged cause she saw the line beforehand
5: what? That sentence makes no sense
6: LLEENN gave quite a few "fucks" whenever she got shot, but apparently you were off in LALA land when that happend.

Next time actually "watch" the episode please before you make up shit.

But now that the squad jam is over what will the rest of the show be about? Real life stuff or more GGO action?

Still don't know if LLENN should be categorized as OP or not, i mean, the way she dodges bullets with such an uncanny ease could be.

Same. I couldn't handle how corny and unrealistic it was. I understand that shows like these take things out of proportion but this was truly too unbelievable even in such a setting. Honestly, I had felt like the script writers were doing a decent job until this episode. This episode was just terrible.

There's nothing wrong with her speed, t's perfectly in line with what other agility based characters have done before:



If there's one thing to complain about then it's the fact that agility builds seem to be rare AF even tho there is (for the majority of players) pretty much no reason not to put every spare point in agility.

Yeah, that's the thing, it seems that it's the only build with no clear downside or weakness to other builds.

Not gonna lie, while it was entertaining, Karen’s plot armour was strong this episode e.g. Boss shooting an immortal object, P Chan having a mind of its own and being used as a shield to block Boss’s shots.

I knew M san would come to the rescue! I wonder what his real identity is

oh, come on, dude. let me put a gun to ur face and tell u to dodge it? wait, why didn't u dodge it? u saw the line...
yeah, let me shoot one spot over and over, cuz i love to do that a lot. also, let me shoot for the heart, cuz not that a HEADSHOT makes lethal damage. oh wait, but she dodges headshot point blank, cuz she sees the line... there's like a whole body in front of her and she shoots 1 spot

if u point out that line thing so much, why haven't others dodged it and got killed? why was m so scared of getting shot? couldn't he dodge it? no matter how big or small the target is (amazon has big complexity - still dodged), or how much agility it has, it's still pretty fucking hard to dodge the fucking point blank bullet

yeah, right. amazon gets her vastus medials cut and falls down on ground from damage, llenn gets shot in the ankle and runs perfectly fine afterwards. ok, i'll give it for temporary shock damage

but other than that, don't try to make up for pathetic writing, mate. the author knows a lot about guns, but not about the in-game logic and mechanics, it's just made up to entertain 12 yo viewers with a kawaii pink-suited girl

Well there is at least one other viable build:

Playing a sniper build and camping with the invisibility cloak thingy.

I guess the rest heavily depends on what the other "rare" items do. I could see some build centered around a specific weapon if the weapon itself is OP enough but yeah, as far as standard builds go nothing seems to beat pure agility.
