THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Hmm, even from what Phantom Thieves acomplished with their latest treasure hunt, they are concerned about what they did.

Seems like a rather moody episode though and honestly, the first half bored me. However, Hifumi makes her appearance and meets Ren school which sparked more of my interest.

Also, that feeling of despair...

Police lady is appointed to the mission.

Art university guy expected that everyone else would think it's the group's fault. Even there's a false notice to the principal.

Police came to investigate about the group.

Someone sending to confuse everything about the group.

That boy who created the site for the group giving a job and targetted a young male actor. He looks suspicious, though.

The main guy met that lady the group met at the island, becoming shogi partner and listen to her worry.

The twin tail girl's friend is well, but mother is getting her transferred because of what happened related to the group, so she went to that place again.

That boy who created the site for the group created another himself. This time they didn't do anything but just talking over. He regained himself by himself.

Shogi again. Main guy showing his determination.

Well, the obvious rushing aside it was a pretty good episode.

I liked how Haru smiled after when Ann, Shiho and Ren finished talking. Nice little touch.

I'm pretty sure the final scene with Mishima after dealing with his shadow happened at the park but I guess they decide to wrap it up at the school instead. I guess they kinda altered his storyline a bit and made it fit into the main story.
Anyway, glad to see the Phantom Thieves overcoming this shake up pretty fast.

I'm happy for all the Hifumi screen time and her quirky shogi playing. <3

Instead of joy looks like Okamura's fate only served to bring despair and doubt to the team. So the conspiracy was actually egging them on until they reached the height of their power. But the revelation that they were being manipulated sure was a cruel shock to them and to Haru in particular. Using this time to both expand on Hifumi's character and show the determination of their allies was a nice choice that served to motivate the team. Looks like the team's energy is back. So the next move is to locate clues about how the enemy is.

I loved Mishima's story in the game, so I'm really glad they're pulling it in in a slightly different way. So nice to see Shiho again as well, interesting that Ann's social link is being animated this late since it's one of the first you can do in-game.

Hifumi definitely comes across with more of a personality in animation than in the game.

Wait, did you say "school festival"??? Does this mean that Ryuji and Anne will end up cosplaying as Tusk and Angelise from Cross Ange at this point????
P.S. sometimes, I'm also starting to wonder if the P5 Hero will cosplay as Lelouch from Code Geass for some reason?????

Although the episode is more of a build-up to the next palace, it was pretty nice to see the likes of Hifumi getting more screentime than the last time we saw her. Her style of shogi is certainly amusing. =)

Not only that, but see also see the return of Shiho as well, as she and Ann have a nice heart-felt conversation on the rooftop of the school.

Mishima got a change of heart this time, but it was the use of Ren's words that did the trick this time. It proves that, sometimes, words can be more powerful than action.

The episode count on the endcard has shown to be 26 now. I'm still convinced there'll be more episodes than that. but we'll have to wait next week to find out if that'll be true or not.

This better be a 40-something episode anime. I'm not ready for it to end yet.

Don't think that at this point this will be done differently, but in the game i thought after Haru's father death that her natural reaction should be questioning the whole cognition world and blaming the group with how the method is unknown which might've led to this result. Always thought that this part was strange, but her whole arc was pretty much rushed which is probably why. Wasn't really a fan of Mishima's story, felt a bit abrupt.
Hifumi's shogi quirk was the best moment this time.

I wonder how they are going to fit the rest of the story into 3 episodes? I'm assuming this is only going to have 25 episodes like Persona 4.

It's not confirmed to be a two cour series. Considering it's blu-ray episode counts, it might very well be a three cour series. Though, it feels like it might get an odd episode count like 32-34.

Nice. They adapted Hifumi's confidant and a bit of the others.

Shiho is back.

The world has really became a terrible place to live in, there's nothing better than the anime world to forget about everything

At the pace this is going, I can see it being around 9 more episodes.

finally the best girl (hifumi) got more screen time!
why did they skip the 'confession' at the school roof top tho :(

seems like we'll have more than 24 episodes. perhaps 30-ish since we still have sae and shido's palace, mementos, and the last boss. I hope things will wrapped up nicely in the end :)

Wtf is this?

I can't stand the series anymore, the animation, the script, characters like it's getting worse after every episode.

How can they wrap the series without rushing it in 4 episodes? They took their damn time animating so much filler.

Just play the game if you can, it used to be enjoyable till Futaba's arc, after that it became a hotter mess.

i know that at the beginning it was circulating that it would be 2-cour but we dont know if its gonna end after 4 episodes at this point.
if in the next episode's ED there's a #27 its most likely going to continu this fall.

Even though I understand why the Phantom thieves are feeling down because of the public opinion turning against them, at the end of the day it probably shouldn't matter how they are seen by the world as long as they are able to carry justice for the helpless in this corrupt world.
