THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
This episode had some strange ritualistic themes.

This kinda felt like a finale episode with the push of the main story. I wonder how they plan to cover the finale with all this coming together though. Those angels still pique my interest considering how otherworldly they are.

The boss also received phone call to send the main guy to the rescue.

Sakurai-san's character is strong, and got out of it. He doesn't give up on exorcising it.

The boss called Sakurai-san's character that they have in control.

She seems to recognize main guy as that Seimei guy. She explained what those eggs do. She is mad for what humans do and said it's too late.

He promised to bring those eggs on time in exchange to let the humans go.

Wow, main guy called two different flying species from ep.1 to help out.

He learned to contact another in his own way while they can approve.

They were able to bring everything on time and she forgive the humans. Then Kohaku and the cat somehow got along well.

Sakurai-san's character says it's just coincidence that solved the case, but just probably his ways to say thanks for the help.

One more ep. (besides OVA).

Next ep. will be anime original

Really liked the scene with the angels spinning the rainbowy silk in the sky along with the beautiful BGM, it was absolutely stunning <3

Everyone in Tengu and angel clans are like super hot, but good thing I like men otherwise angels' size is too big for me to handle (still wondering how that son of Tengu's head will handle his love interest). I actually realized that Tengu are about the same human size, I thought they were a little bit smaller in the first episode.

Dialogue is the best weapon for peace and I hope Kanoichi realizes that.

Arata bringing other anothers to help out was nice, what about the monkeys though? I wish he asked them too.

This episode was fun seeing anothers helping out but i wash they would introduce an another who is a threat to humans and Arata coulndt reason with it i mean friendship power is going to save everyone and it would give Arata a challenge since half of Aratas achievement have been coincidence but i guess this is that kind of story where everything just works out ok in the end because of friendship power

I was wondering what kind of punishment would be the best for the scarred guy. Well, I am quite satisfied with what the anime did. The scarred guy had made Miyako feel unheard, and now, no one listened to him.

And there we have it, folks. That bastard got off easy if you ask me. There may be risks to Arata’s approach but Kanoichi’s is beyond risk. It is the near-certainty of disaster with no real positives. Not only were his actions going to lead to many deaths, but Tokyo would indefinitely be cursed and Manari-sama would have most likely turned into Tatarigami - if you know your Japanese mythology, this is something you'd want no part of.

Honestly, Kanoichi can get fcked! And everything was on Arata's shoulders to clean up his mess and find a solution. The alternative that Arata came up with was to trust on the relationship he’s built up with Another's such as the Angels and Tengu to help out, along with employees from the all the Occult Services offices. Manari-sama forgives their sin against her children because of Arata (Senmei) who kept his promise to her, but she will not forget the act from Kanoichi and his team. She showed him who the bigger person was.

The people who share Kanoichi's views are damn extremists in their thinking and its pretty dangerous if you ask me.

Arata fullfiled his role : being the balance between the Anothers & the Humans. The idea of cooperation revealed itself to be the most accurated to the situation and it leaded to a peaceful resolve (instead of a curse & many more consequences !).

Anothers sometimes reminds me of our Mother Nature : even if we can't communicate with her, that does not mean we should destroy it. And if we do, that may lead to negative consequences. If we compare this show to real event : in episode 9, an Another kidnapped kids because he felt alone after his human neighbours had to leave the building. In reality, we could translate it as to an animal forced to move out of his forest (let's say it has been destroyed for economical purpose) and who's now attacking domestic beasts he had never met, to ensure his survival.

This 11th episode's events could be related to any natural catastrophe that has been created by the human actions.

I personally doesn't hate Kanoichi like many people does, but he sure not learning from this incident and remained a dick to Arata.

Really good episode. I always love this kind of resolution, with many previous parties working together to solve the problems.

The Silkworm goddess is gorgeous (the Angels too of course) and those babies are adorable.

And I love that Kohaku just sneaked in to make himself a cloth from the silks. And just simply tag along with him to Izumo festival XD

Really wonder how they will end the series next episode. This episode actually can be a good finale tho

This episode was good. I wonder whether Kanoichi didn't get the basic education about gods and the possibility of them cursing the land. He was stubborn until the end which was pretty reckless.

Kohaku is supposed to be the deuteragonist of this show, yet nothing would have changed if we didn't have him. I don't get his role at all. He's just floating and changing outfits -_-

So even at the end, Arata's team was given the go-ahead to finish the job.

Even the angels and Tengu from Episode 1 came back along with the fairies to help in the favour.

Resolution solved!

Yeah same!!!
Usually I don't approve on grading an anime by a couple of episodes..but it doesn't seem to be the problem here because imo this show was good from the beginning...
Also there are 100 people that scored either 1 or 2.. I swear I can't stand them. In general, an anime worth a 1 or 2 score? Maybe if it's drawn by a kid and the animation is some kind of confusing way of moving the scenes and characters aaarggh sorry rant over. ^^

My favorite episode so far!

Exactly what I was expecting when I first started this anime.

Truly a shame so few people are watching this gem.

YESS!!! u cant decide if the anime is good or bad just by watching 1 episode, and like no anime deserves a 1 or 2 rating :p specially not this one

One of the best episodes, in my opinion. The animation is not the best but the voice acting is great and the plot is usually what keeps me watching.

That god's babies were adorable. I'm glad they didn't die. She kept her word because Arata kept his. Arata is awesome, he's friends with the Anothers and employed their help. It was nice seeing the tengu and angels because they're one of my faves.

Even his pet cat was there to help out :) Just one more episode to go.

Luckily Arata managed to talk that Another out of murdering everyone, it was rather dangerous and close though. It was nice to see Anothers working with Humans.

kohaku really comes and go as he pleases, even though he's listed as one of the main characters.

Decent conclusion for this arc. Arata is the balance between the Anothers & the Humans. Is Kohaku going to do something? He is just floating there and nothing more lmao.

My only issue is that it felt like a finale episode.
Life has no meaning.

I don't know about everyone else, but I really wanted to destroy that annoying and hateful Konoichi guy.
