THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.

The writers were clearly on crack.....
There is nothing positive I can say about this episode aside from Hideyoshi's and Nobunaga's interactions.

This episode was definitely different. I did find it funny, however.

Plot was weird, but it was pretty funny. Hope it won't start going down hill.

You think so? I noticed a few messages that had some pretty deep meaning to them. I think this is some of their best work yet!

i like this episode and all, but when are they gonna start to tie everyone together? I get that they are trying to familiarize us with the characters by giving them each their own episode, but by the time they start trying to put everything together I'm going to completely forget some of the first characters introduced

lots of nobunaga in this ep was good

Mindfuck as hell...

If someone could explain the part about life being a play, or the answer that could mean death...
There's something too deep there, I'm almost sure lol

Great episode.
Some parts were like watching that Utena filler episode.



But with some nonsense Mawaru Penguindrum level ^^'

This was the dumbest thing I have ever watched. Rice people? Wheat people? Eat the rice people to save the day? What in the great name of fuck did I just watch? Easily the worst episode of anime I've ever seen, and the only one I actually hated so far. I have low expectations for this anime, but this episode was ridiculous. I don't even want to think about it. This is the only show this season out of the 18 that I'm watching that I don't like, and I was hoping it would get better. Oh well, only 18 episodes left. I must be an idiot for not dropping this.

Hideyoshi and Oda were funny but the episode overall was weird. The next episode looks a bit promising though.

Agree with everything here. Not really anything to add to that.

Oh well next episode will be along soon to hopefully make up somewhat for this epic failure of an episode.

Love how different people's reactions to this episode are lol

It was the most surreal episode of anything I've seen in a while (perhaps since Beelzebub ended?)...
Just great! Would be nice if there was an ep or two more like that in the series :)

And then that happened.

Wasn't a bad episode per se, though I found it somewhat depressing...3/5. Can't recall the last time Nobunaga managed to collect a treasure...

Very interesting. It hid lots of meaning in it for no apparent reason. Like what the scarecrow said:

"There are two types of plays that you don't understand. Those written so you will not understand, and those with no content."

"Then which is this?"

"There's no such thing as a play with no content"

"Don't say things that don't make sense"

"The real world is made of plays, it is unthinkable for them to have content, and some people are sad and cry over this. If you can not heal their sorrow, you can not call yourself a savior"

I suspect some of the vague contradiction might be more due to a bad translation though I can't be sure. But still, that passage was very existentialist. It sort of drove home the theme of this episode, that without meaning to their lives, the rice become depressed, and that by eating them she is giving them a purpose, and therefore happiness.

I found this episode to be absolutely hilarious due to the combination of strangely deep philosophy and stupidly adorable moe shenanigans.
