THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
After 2 weeks, we get a saucy Sugata on a date. <3
Takuto pwning his father with his puuuuuuuuuuuuuuunch was awesome though.

The 3 on 1 fight did not disappoint one bit. I was wonder what kind of ass pulling Takuto would do, but saucy Sugata did it all for him.

As expected, Sugata joined Glittering Crux; his outfit is pretty fabulous if I may say so.

I think Sugata joined Kiraboshi because he wants to leave Wako to Takuto and protect another Miko, Keito, who told him about her identities.

Finally! Been waiting for Sugata to join the crux since episode 8. Hopefully we'll get a proper rematch between him and Takuto

LOL @ Fukuyama Jun voicing another character with an affinity for peacocks XD

About the preview, looks like Keito is going to make her move on Sugata, who asked Takuto "what does it mean to fall in love?" after his encounter with Keito (and even flashed back to it), so he's already probably starting to fall for her. And Keito is a miko, so they can be betrothed.

So Keito gets Sugata, and Wako gets Takuto, and everybody is happy...'cept for Benio and Tiger, but mostly little Benio XD

No matter how I think, it seems to me that either this show will need a second season or the ending will be extremely rushed and disappointing. I mean there are only 2 eps left and now it's really got interesting :D
I hope the Head will get a cybody in the next ep and Takuto will find out the Sugata joined them.
Oh, and the fact that Takuto understood the he is his father just by looking at him kinda seemed stupid :D

It's one thing when someone like Sasuke leaves Konoha, and you know he will become evil and a prick and all that.

It's different with Sugata though. You know that he has no intentions other than protecting the two remaining maidens and letting Takuto have Wako. He isn't doing it to be evil. Also, Head doesn't seem to like that very much.

The 3 vs 1 fight was OK, Sugata joining Crux at the ending was bad-ass, it would have been way better if Sugata would have joined in episode 13 or so, not when there's 2 episodes left, and also a better music with his entrance would had been better. But at least it was something different, and refreshing, despite the remaining episodes left. Overall, one of the best episodes I've seen from SD.

Takuto finally met his father and gave him a punch I like that part.
And at the end wow! Very surprised Sugata joined the Glittering Crux I wonder why.
About Wako how will she react if she knows what Sugata's doing...

"If you win, you can take Wako."
Takuto, please lose! D:<
Actually, Takuto lose, and Sugata annul the engagement.
Wako isn't good enough for any of them.

Other than that, that's a nice punch.
Also, them odds. Funny to see Takuto breaking a sweat for once.
And finally Sugata joins them. It was just a matter of time~
The question now is whether he'll stay there and become the final boss or not.
I guess it's more or less likely that Sugata and Keito are planning something together.
Well whatever, time will tell.

Oh, so the volcano was in the direction of Head's head. That was. So. Unpredictable. I mean, that's not really something Takuto would do. Sugata definitely stole this episode, he was really awesome. The fight was pretty much meh though, I was seriously hoping for some Samekh action. Really, Sugata as a Tau Missile? That was plain strange. Anyhow, seems like Sugata fell in love with Keito and Takuto can has Wako now, so everything's good you'd think...

did anyone NOT see the ending coming? I don't really buy it though, he's been training and making sure Takuto can protect Wako this whole time. I guess he kinda has his own harem but we still don't figure out what exactly happened with him and Keito other than she told him some of what is going on. it COULD be an inside job or maybe he just wants to help her?

how did Takuto know that was his fathe?r and if he did why didn't he see him earlier? the punch was deserved though. so ... it took them this long to decide to fight 3 to 1?

oh and whatever Sugata was wearing so fucking fruity what the hell man. still I've always preferred him to Takuto.

I think the volcano question gave it away, since only a painter would ask that usually.

Asking for the same thing.

I would say that Takuto and Sugata will fight soon, and from there, Takuto's dad should be the final boss.

I know him joining the Crux almost right after hearing what's her face is part of it pissed me off so much, but is it really just to protect her, to protect himself, or to bring down the Crux from the inside?

But honestly, you have to know that this is going to end with Takuto winning anyways.

Yes, this episode was so great. There's got to be some reason why Sugata joined the crux but I still would like to see a showdown between him and Takuto. Then, they can bring the Head back for an epic final showdown.

OMG! Takuto sure showed his dad! But i'm sure everyone knew that Sugata joining them was inevitable. I don't think he joined because he's evil or something (though I do like my bishies better when they're evil) but to protect Wako. . .

As usual, the last three minutes were interesting. The rest was absolutely pointless.

I have to ask, why is his dad evil? Why does he dad pretty much want him dead? Is he just some cliche evil person who will kill anyone in his way? Does he have no attachment for his kid?

So Sugata is a good guy. They would not try to make him look like he's bad for two episodes if he actually were, because that would be nothing more than a suspense-killer; if he was truly bad, they would've chosen a more subtle way to show it until the big plottwist comes. Now they want him to think that he is the leader of kiraboshi just to make him save Takuto's ass in the end to surprise everyone. But the execution of almost everything is so aweful in this anime. Terrible and unbelievably predictable.

Nothing about this anime is great or at least average except for the play in episode 22 and the Sam the Squid Piercer parts. But somehow, I find myself hoping that it will become something great every week. Seems like I'm trusting BONES a bit too much.


agree !

How thinly veiled were Sugata's attempts? It was too obvious that Wako had long made her decision. I guess he just wanted to see if there was anything to keep him where he was at. And the answer was no.

I don't think Vanishing Age's strategy was wrong, or even flawed. They could've used their overwhelming numbers at any time, but didn't. It wasn't too late or too early. It's just that Wako, Takuto and Sugata are an unbeatable team. Correction. There WERE.

Short of the last few seconds of the episode, the highlights for me were Takuto finally realizing who his dad was and Sugata's failed attempt at a kiss. This show has taken a very gradual and even path to its finale, but it's been a fun ride.

A lot of you are overlooking some things. In my opinion it seems that Sugata is a Manipulative Bastard who will exploit "flaws" within the weird cult and would most probably have a Batman Gambit in place.

Thus, fully solidifying his place as Takuto's opposite as the Anti-Hero, with Takuto being The Chosen One that is Chaotic Good. He "goes against" Takuto while not being a villain outright.
