Honestly, if you haven't read the manga, it'd feel like they skipped an episode or something. I understand they wanting to have the broadcast order being different from the chronological one, but honestly it's a bad choice considering that most people watching this haven't read the manga. It would have been better that they stick to the chronological order and give us an ending with cliffhangers. At least we'd still anticipate for a second season and I know I'd be happier with it being that way. Nonetheless, it was another good but confusing episode overall.

Idk what everyone is confused about.
Ogres want to kill Peachboy. Hawthorne is gathering money after the town got fucked which they showed. Introduction of New Ogres. And Now Sally has to make a choice. Which she'll probably just go with her friends and not Mikoto or Sumeragi because thats just how it is.
I thought it was an okay episode.

Now we'll go back to how the show really starts next week.

Clearly some a lot of content has been skipped or something because nothing makes sense. I started episode 3 wondering if I missed an episode or something.

Peach Boy is definitely failing the 3 episode ruling. I'll give it one more episode but honestly this shit isn't amusing. I have no attachment or like of anyone...except for Frau who is hard to dislike.


The anime is airing out of chronological order because the manga doesn't have a good stopping point and they wanted to avoid an anime original ending and fillers since the author was also not interested in writing an ending for the anime. This was a terrible decision in my opinion. As last episode animated ch5-6 and skipped forward to ch19 which is today's episode. We missed a lot of content of what happened in between like Sally's change of clothes, a not so depressed Hawthorn, Karrot being friends with the group despite killing people I'm the last episode, Mikoto and the blonde companion, Sally and Mikoto having a their 3rd reunion(yes third because the anime has not aired the 2nd) and Sally having this goal to keep everyone of all races in Harmony(which from a development standpoint came out of no where because it was not expressed enough yet).

This idea of airing out of order was a mistake and director thought he could get away with this by calling them flashbacks, and that it will all work out in the end, but what's the point when people will start to drop it before it gets there? In retrospective, I would wait until all the episodes are aired and then watch them in order or read the manga. The anime can miss me with this mismatch puzzle nonsense.

Really good episode! Really enjoyed it. The achronological airing order doesn't really bother me, I think it's interesting. Aside from missing gaps that they'll show in later episodes, it's pretty easy to understand. It's better to judge this airing order once the season is finished, plus once it's finished you can simply just piece the episodes together chronologically.

I am really liking the characters in the show, can't wait to see that ogre boy that likes Meki get clapped by Mikoto lmao. Juselino is adorable, though she seems very dangerous lmao, better be careful Hawthorn. The best choice for Sally would be to choose no one, Mikoto is too radical and Sumeragi is shady as fuck, so the best option for Sally would be herself. Looks like next episode will be how Mikoto and Sally met, really looking forward to that.

Wow, this adaptation is pretty terrible, not sure what the director was smoking when coming up with this "great" idea.

At least we can watch ep4 next week, thanks to the Chronological Order version...

Ah that makes sense then. I was just telling my friend all the points that make episode 3 confusing.

Like how is Hawthorn so bubbly when his home just got destroyed? We literally don’t see a second of him being depressed. What does he think? Does he want revenge? Is he just sad? It’s hard to believe he’s just indifferent and only cares about making money to survive.

Sally’s new outfit unexplained or shown.
Oni girl being so friendly with everyone and seeming to appreciate humans suddenly

The masked oni, Ao, having never been seen fighting with Mikoto

The girl with Mikoto! Where’s the dog? She’s an ex-oni too? How? When did this happen?

So much is missing. This is terrible storytelling.

.......WTF is even happening now, we went from the city destroyed to something totally unrelated in the timeline, even the characters' relationships don't make sense compared to the previous episode, they skipped so many events that it feels like I'm watching episode 8 or 9


hehe, fun thing to note. considering how they changed the upload sequence, you probably are. this was like, 15 chapters ahead of the previous episodes

I don't really care about jumbled timeline, since this show doesn't seem to have particularly complicated story but the whole episode I felt like animation quality took a noticeable dip. Addition of pointless loli character doesn't bode well either. Hope it won't end like Mashito no Oto, i. e. solid opening episode just to turn out to be below average crap.

I really don't understand the point of doing that, I just can't appreciate because of the broadcast order, even though it seems good

one thing I will commend this show on is it's ost, it's really good and really helps set the tones of the scenes where the direction is sometimes lacking

Is this anime like the Momotaro and his animal friends Dog, Monkey and Pheasant from the usual folklore, will we see the monkey and pheasant? And it seems like they are diverging quite a bit from the lesson you get out of Momotaro where working together can make the impossible happen but at this point MC 1 slash enemy, plop enemy ded. But its interesting to see how Frau will play a part in the story since in the Chinese astrology rabbit is the opposite of Pheasant(JP)/Rooster(CN) and the one that was tamed with food was Frau instead of the usual dog, monkey or pheasant. Interesting story, me like.
Hhhmmmmmm.......

in the beginning, i thought we miss something because the desstruction of the town in the last episode is not mentionned and we had directly a tournament. but we had something on it at the end of this episode by Sumeragi

Sally is really pretty in her outfit ❤️

Just from casual browsing, I am getting the impression that Western audiences are really disliking that the episodes are being released out of chronological order.
Personally, it wasn't a big problem with the first two episodes, but this latest episode is really jarring so I am putting it on hold until I can binge watch it in the proper order.

For those who adhere to the 3-episode rule, are you going to keep watching this or will you drop it? Why?

I like the art style but do we really need three lolis, a trap and a furry? Why couldn’t the hot purple haired one stay an adult 😭

Came to the forum the second I got confused, I knew it was already out of order from the start but now it truly feels out of order. Still interested to see how it goes despite being very lost...

Jucerino is adorable, but I am very surprised that he was behind the destruction of the hawthorn empire, although I believe it was instigated by the sumeragi

didn't even watch this 'cause of what people are saying about the time jumping. gonna wait until the whole show's done airing and watch the episodes in the order the story's actually supposed to be in instead of the mess this director's going with.

I felt like I missed an episode and had to check the episode number. This show is a real mess and leaves me more confused the more I watch it. Lack of backstory for anything is hurting it for me.

After last episode's ending, this one starting off on a completely unrelated note was definitely odd. As expected a lot of stuff was skipped. Not everything has to air in a scrambled order, the director should have just kept it the same as the manga 🤦‍♂️

I’m pretty disappointed in hearing they skipped so much manga content this episode, it did feel a bit odd they barely mentioned the city getting destroyed and how Sally happened to run into Mikoto this soon. I really felt the first two episodes were very solid but this one isn’t looking too good. That aside, I did enjoy the episode, we got insight on the side of the Ogres, and introduced to a lot of new characters. Sumeragi is definitely not to be trusted, hopefully Sally picks Mikoto over him, and Juselino was very cute, reminds me of Rika from Higurashi.

The chronological ordering is really started to get to me. I have no idea what's going on anymore and it's not the good kind of feeling.

I didn't really like this much but oh well, I'm interested in how the rest of the series will play out
I love One Piece and Gintama

This whole decision to air episodes in a seemingly random order actually pisses me off.

Was looking forward to watching this series, but if they don't know how to count to 10, I'ma head out.

All they've done is confuse the shit out of people. Completely idiotic decision, and whoever made it should get fired.

I'm utterly confused XD
Just when the episode started I was like “What the heck is going on....?” I felt like I skipped 2 episodes or something.

So, which episode is it supposed to be chronologically?

It would've been better if they at least did an introduction of that sister tagging along with Mikoto.

Good that Sally has a change of clothes. This one is better than the previous one.

More heart conversation...it's weird if you watch this after Edens Zero.


Imagine this thing actually walked instead of teleporting after saying that 🗿

I can understand most of you all not liking this, I too think this order is messing everything up but I think this is what makes it pretty interesting. It kinda falls under “so badly done that I'm curious how it'll continue” though it's not really badly done, everything is fine in terms of animation and story. They just messed up the sequence of episodes. I think if they went with the correct order it would've been really boring and generic that I might've dropped it.

Yes I too would be torn between someone I've seemingly known for a long time and a complete stranger wearing a priests robe, who happens to be a part of a race that wants the destruction of humans. Tbh I don't really enjoy forced dilemmas like that.

Between the shitty episode airing order, the overall quality of the show and the idiotic "dilemma" at the end of this episode.. It's time to call upon the 'three episode rule'

Yeah plus not seeing the character development happen of the ogre girl all of a sudden not hating humans is weird. I have no idea what to think of these characters that there's apparently been developments in that I have no idea what they are. It's not fun to watch like this.

Mutual understanding must be built on equal strength. As ​humans probably can't beat the guards of God of Masks, what they should do is either to beg the Virgin Mary bitch to kill all the ogres, or to beg her to catch the dog chains on the ogres tightly.

Peach Boy Riverside TV has SHUFFLED timeline order.
In D Anime Store site, the series is broadcasted in correct order.
My source: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8AakEwXMxG0

It's not like they TV won't broadcast the missing episodes, but... yeah, this is indeed very confusing.
Monogatari series, we can enjoy it even though there are so many inserted stories between previous releases.
Princess Principal, the "Case Number" wasn't in order, but the series is still pretty solid and enjoyable as a show.

My conclusion: Maybe they wanted to have people visit the site and pay for the correct order, and the target audience is mainly Japanese.

Thanks for the info, was trying to dive deep into the anime production side of things.

I can understand Haruhi, Monogatari or even Princess Principal doing this manner because the replayability is high for a shuffled order. But this show doing this MAKES ZERO SENSE at all.

Your answer guess is as good as mine.
