Hm... That was resolved so fast it looked very easy. And from what I've read here, they'll have to keep up that pace 'til the end.

Well, good riddance to Joseph (at least for now, because his death really isn't convincing) - being basically a sociopath on a quest for something that affects him he wasn't terribly interesting to me. But I'm getting concerned that all the remaining arcs might also be so rushed that I won't be able to truly care about them. Wouldn't be the first time J.C. Staff shook me off in the last season due to having slacked with the plot beforehand.

Apart from those plot concerns, it was a nice episode. And hurray for Tifa - she was actually being useful, and pretty much so :-)

That was nice. Saito using a handgun.
I hope Saito using a bazooka again like he did in the first season.

Well I'm liking this season (this one doesn't have at the moment those overloads of ecchi that the others had), I think that the main plot now is to find the fourth void mage.
Also the main antagonist at the moment are the brothers that appeared on the first two episodes (and who knows maybe Joseph is alive!)
I think that Vittorio is kinda suspicious!

I don't know what all the complaining is about, I'm enjoying this season thoroughly.

This episodes win win was without a doubt Tabitha <3 and Saito with a gun.

About Joseph being dead...

I remember last year, having stumbled upon the list of Gallia characters (Joseph & Sheffield) on the Japanese wikipedia and spoilering myself (><). It clearly stated "double suicide" and "Firestone".

I think they are pretty much gone gone.

Joseph is gone already... lol what the hell. Wonder who the last villain is going to be then, maybe the new void mage? And I still think/ sorta hope that Saito is also Tifa's familiar.

Wait... next episode preview is about some reward from the queen?! Lol that means its gunna be about Henrietta and Saito, hmm gunna be fun to watch.

Oh that's good to know. I hope they don't change that. So I guess this means time for the person that was controlling stuff around Joseph to emerge. I guess Tabitha will have loads of beef against that person considering he screwed and got rid most of her family.

The fighting scenes were pretty lame tame, but, well, ZnT is not an action series much. Other than that, pretty nice. And yay, hot yuri Louise/Saito in the preview!

That reminds me- did Julio and that other dude kiss too? (Contract thing)

LOL, I was wondering that too.
He probably kissed his hand or something like that. Or maybe the pope is actually a she! PLOT TWIST!

Awesome episode.

This is what Zero no Tsukaima should be about! Completing task one by one, and always involve some "real world" relic.

That was a nice episode, action part could've been a whole lot better though.

I did not expect to see a gun in Zero no tsukaima :O
and underestimating seen as Joseph was defeated as easily.
Now the question is, what will happen with the series to be defeated Joseph?

Nothing more to say except - I enjoyed the episode.

Oh, Joesph went down pretty early in the season, I thought he would have lasted longer, till at least episode 6, but looks like I'm wrong.

FUCK! So many deus ex machina! The king could kill Saito instantly by slicing his throat yet he decided to chit chat and even conveniently explaining his ability. That mind's eye thing was complete and utter bullshit! The king not blowing Saito's head even though he was faster with the gun was god damn inexplicable, it's like he's purposely trying to let Saito live as long as possible until help arrive. This season somehow Saito (and Louise's) annoying meter notch up 10 levels, I found myself cheering for the king when he fought Saito but too bad he was never gonna win -____-

What's even more baffling is that Sheffield was kind enough to warn the group before detonating the bomb! I mean come on, if you're planning to die anyway might as well take your enemies with you instead of waiting for them fly safely outside of the explosion range! Just kiss the king and detonate! Let Louise and Saito die a horrible death that should've happened 3 seasons ago!!! Make Tiffa or Henrietta (transfer Louise's void to her!) the protagonist and this series will become much more enjoyable!

Enjoying this season more than the previous ones. Saito's not being a dickhead playboy as of yet. Louise hasn't pulled out her whip yet either. Story seems to be moving pretty quickly, but I guess if they stretched it out, it'd be a lot more boring.

I didn't expected that what looked like the main antagonist to die so early in the season o.O

Well, I wonder what will happen next. There is the mystery behind Tiffania familiar. If she kiss Saito, will he become her familiar or will he even be shared by the two?

The op and ed song are so meh.
"Saito , Saito , Saito!" and then he appears , stupid shounen logic .
This anime would be 10 times better if Louise dies and Saito gets an archenemy .

That was a pretty intense episode. So I'm guessing at the end there, Joseph felt some emotion with his familiar and what, had the resolve to die by atomic explosion?

Interested to see where things to from here, with that finale-material already out the way.

What the HELL!?
Saito just shooting the woman in the leg with a pistol, honestly didnt see that coming at all.
It's usually just a bit of fighting with someone getting beaten at the end.

Well that was rather quick to be done with Joseph and his familiar.

I've really liked this series so far, despite some logical inconsistencies (like how at the end of the second series they basically got married, yet this was not brought up whatsoever in the third series). But this episode... was just too dumb. They're pushing the "spare your enemy" envelope way too far. One element of good literature is some degree of realism in the characters. They already did a great job with demonstrating how someone can atone for doing evil things with Colbert and how Agnes broke the chain of vengeance by sparing him. There was no need to force every character down the same route (it just isn't believable). Tabitha killing Joseph would have provided a good contrast. Also, any person in their right mind would have killed Sheffield when Saito had the chance to. It's not a matter of vengeance. It's a matter of logic. She's too much of a threat. She has already caused thousands of deaths and would likely continue to cause thousands of deaths. The same goes for King Joseph. These characters just don't think at all about the greater good.
