OMFG THAT FUCKING ENDING!! CANNOT FUCKING WAIT FOR NEXT WEEK!!!



A little bonus for people...

Finally some action! I hope this continues for the rest of the series.

Hopefully this will shut-up all those that have been complaining that this is the worst season.

Also, I knew that it was just a matter of time before we got to see some fanservice from Rebecca, after all she is always getting wet.

from what i see Yuuji is still good guy. seems he just wanted more power and he just uses bal masque guys. So prolly when full power for god of time will be acquired then he will switch sides back to flame hazes OR! Make hes own path

So let me get this straight. Snake of the Festival gives the single command to protect Seireiden while he's gone. The very next fucking scene is 99% of the tomogara attacking random places on Earth leaving Seireiden relatively defenseless.

lolwut? Can the writing for this get any worse? Well, I'm sure it can.

It is very tricky.
They are in a position where they knows that the flame haze side is aware that they intend to revive the snake of the festival's real body.
If left alone the flame haze will find a way in Seireiden to start war which will in return be dangerous for Yuuji's group since the gate of the place where he went is left all open. The flame haze could close it and hence trap everyone that was inside it or they could enter it to chase them.

Basically if they have to wadge war, which they obviously will have to since the flame haze won't permit it, then they shouldn't do it in Seireiden but rather in the real world, they took the initiative to also lead the flame haze force into disorder.

Then again I feel that the anime is at fault for badly adapting the novel. Jc staff never adapted anything right afterall.

Was it just me, or did the insert song at the end of this episode sound a lot like the OP for Toaru Kagaku no Railgun?

Omg, We are in Chapter 8 and are still on the first page.
With respect to the chapter, I liked a lot and even more memories was Wilhelmina when she met Shana

Not the ED, but the insert song during the fighting (or was that ALTIMA also?)

So the war begins, awesome episode.Although i truly wonder which side I'd want to win, because with just Yuji vs Shana alone it appears to me that Shana was just being stubborn and not even listening to what he had to say while Yuji is looking for change and is possibly even willing to explain his plan in detail if she would give him a chance, its like she said this episode she would fight him if he could despite the fact she wants to see him... so she will only listen to him when he is beaten and on the ground? it seems like she has a power issue going if so, it would explain why she got scared when her powers were sealed. In any case the break in at the end was great; i wonder if Shana will get her powers back next episode.

Yes! Shana's finally wearing that white dress! Man this season is finally getting somewhere now, I can say this, when it's done, it's just going on my number 1 anime. The part where Rebecca was like, Yo! was funny as hell, Shana's cute as baby. and I got myself a new wallpaper now! can't wait for next week.

All that setup was well worth it. There is a lot more at stake here and I think that without all the developments from the first six episodes the conflict itself wouldn't have the same impact as it does now.

Pretty damn happy with how this season is going.

I said "relatively defenseless". Meaning that, compared to the massive amount of forces that are attacking the Flame Haze around the world, there is a much tinier proportion of soldiers left to guard Seireiden.

but we didn't see fecol true power so there is a chance he can defend the palace against kashamin gient and rebbeca with his powers for a while dont you think?

Go Khamsin, wreck the place to ruins, along with the defenseless Shana!!!

Seriously... He do have no care in the world when he attacks... Friendly fire is the least of his concern since season 1 (As stated).

Interesting how Seirei-den choose to attack the flame haze and giving off the impression that the "Big-3" is at home waiting... look like it backfired

Wilhelmina and Shana can't match up to the big 3 (As shown in season 2, they were bleeding all over from the fight against the old pedo and Hecate... Hecate and the pedo's not even puffing, let alone touched/damaged... and that is when they have to hold back from going all out (to not damage the big soldier thing).... I think Khamsin could take one.

Nietono no Shana always seemed liked a mere sword that was won from a mystes, but I always thought "wouldn't it be cool if it was an intelligent being that chose to be with Shana instead of being taken?" Sort of like a Saito-Derflinger partnership in Zero no Tsukaima. Crazy idea but when I saw Nietono no Shana slice up two tomogara in the preview I metaphorically shit my pants.

I don't know how it was said in the novel but basically Nietono no Shana is the greatest sword forged by Tenmoku Ikko. He was possessed by a Crimson lord and dedictated his life into forging it until he turned into a mystes himself.

We do not know the power real power of Nietono no Shana since like we have seen in the first season it does not create flame unlike the twin combo thought, instead Shana channel the flame through her sword.

The blade in itself is not supposed to have a soul but Shana obviously have a very high affinity with it.

What a blast the episode sure was! Hopefully the action in this episode will shut the action-loving peeps up... For now.

What makes Niotono no Shana one of the most precious treasure tools is not only because its a powerful blade but its also known to be able to dispell and be unaffected by any kind of unrestricted spell if im not mistaken. Basically, if the blade strikes any kind of seal, or magical tool...it will be destroyed, and the blade will never be damaged by other spells.

AFAIR during season 2 (the end of Pheles Arc), Fecor's powers are defensive. The only power he has that I remember was that he summoned cubes.

Also, there is not much action in this episode. The episode is a mix of talk, some action showing how widespread Bal Masque's attack on the Flame Hazes, Yuji's a-la-Wizard-of-Oz trip to some LCD-induced dimension, talk, Khamsin's awesomeness. Too bad Shana didn't get a decent screentime this episode.
