THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
This episode of Horizon got my interest in 2 points. First one is her in the following,

Rather a nice new girl with big breasts and to top it all a dress that rivals designs. I like her swords and that she is a big leader.

The second thing is her,

She is a super high important role for Hanzou the ninja. Not saying more but all shall be WTF NO WAY! Like when they find out who she is. LN READERS YOU KNOW! You know the insane person she will become and for that ninja of all people? I am jealous of that. Might edit later.

Use of drama characters and control with command?

The enemy knows his past as one of the 13 (or 13th) students of fighting against school before. He got curse of needing to kill Tori before before disappearing.

Tori got caught by falling to the guy who runs in front of enemy maid robot.

Hooded guy? and England queen!?

lol @ the whole letter gathering moment.

lol @ Tori's announcement during the midnight and him going back at the end.

Another ED this ep.

I liked this episode but it didn't deliver as much an impact as ep 1. Understandable though, seeing how ep 2 is usually a good point to start setting up for the rest of the season in an anime series.

For those of you who're curious about the hooded person with a scar, you can see what she really looks like in the OP already. In the very beginning right after Tenzou is shown standing in front of a castle, her image is briefly reflected on the sword and later there are a couple of seconds where she's standing back to back leaning against Tenzou. I guess the #1 post isn't so much a spoiler for those of you who don't read the LN since that scene already kind of spells out a potential relationship. (And Tenzou already mentions he likes blonde busty girls in S1...how fitting)

Toussaint versus Shakespeare was kind of underwhelming, although the history between them is interesting. Another potential pairing perhaps?

Elizabeth is finally not just making a cameo appearance! Although she seems like the typical egotistical type, all the major characters so far have been likable and I'm sure with this alliance with Musashi, she's gonna play a huge role. Looking forward to a verbal showdown between Elizabeth and Toori...it'd be interesting how that'd turn out.

Lol at the letter grab scene and Gin's revelations about what she'd like out of Muneshige.

I find they did a rather great job on the SFX and speech itself. The recreation was fine indeed.

Yeah for the scar girl you getting closer to the truth but I think there will be more to it.

Oh no, I think it's great for what it tried to deliver. I just figured that with the imaginative powers of authorship more would be thrown out than a number of cloudy shadows. Shakespeare is surely saving something up her sleeve...

As for the "more to it," do you know for sure from LN? Of course, seeing they're both blonde-haired, sister could also be a possibility. Pure speculation here.

It would be nice if he does have a sister to join the team but all I hear is
basically the spoiler. Hence why there is a value on her from me. That's all I heard about so right away I knew about her.

So the are planning to make the battle against the Spanish Armada which was originally a coalition between the English and the Dutch a coalition between the English and Musashi sounds interesting.
The original tricker of why the Spanish Armada was send towards the UK was because of the evolvement with the Netherlands but here Musashi seems to be the tricker.
This could become interesting in a way.

Futayo way of catching that fish was so funny i wish we could see more of her i also like her forces who where cheering for her while catching that fish.

wow seriously you can remember all the characters names? lol sugoi!!!

all i know is that this anime is about underdogs (musashi faction) versus the super powers lol
and that Toori wants to collect all the sacred weapons to get Horizon's body to be human again since Horizon's soul is stuck in a robot

but i still keep watching it eventhough i hardly understand it fully

EDIT:

after reading some wikis im wrong they are collecting the sacred weapons since when Horizon uses those weapons they can win this war (Horizon robotic body is made to maximize the potential of those sacred weapons) and regain their home country japan
since japan now is the only habitable place on earth and that japan is divided to territories and ruled by different races like britain, spain, etc

dang this anime story is difficult to grasp because of the huge cast and side stories

Just someone that's going to play an important part for Tenzou, which is obvious from the OP sequence. :D

Thank people who actually warn about a spoiler when writing one.

Anyway, it's rather obvious the hooded person is that girl seen standing next to Tenzou at the beginning of OP, cannot not noice that scar. Eagerly waiting for some of their interactions. Same with some of fights previewed in the OP, mostly Neito with that redhair whoose name was too long to remember.
Toori is so... Toori everytime. And actually saw some Suzu this ep, still next to nothing. I also wonder how Chancellor of Tres Espana actually managed to attain his position, he doesn't seem like the kind to know anything about war in the first place.

Damn this show, y u so good?

Like really.
Though I guess it's in part thanks to Toori being one of the best lead characters ever.
And in part because the cast is brilliant.
But most of all, probably because there's not a single annoying character that comes to mind immediately in this show.

I prefer his clothes on him than off him.

I'm so looking forward for Tenzou x Scarred and Neshinbara x Shakespeare couples on future episodes. This is getting so exciting and so fun to watch.

Don't worry Tenzou, you soon won't be girlfriendless. A bright future awaits you. *wink*

Also Toori is so hilarious, he got yelled by an entire country. Only he can do that and that takes skill. Political intercourse? Yes, please! XD

Anyone notice the way Musashi is moving sideways?

Glad I'm not the only one who thinks Neshinbara and Shakespeare have the potential to end up together. But still only being cautiously optimistic.

Not as strong as the first episode, but hopefully this season won't go horrible dull in the middle like the previous one. Took Tori quite some time to find clothes, but at least he is dressed. Gin had some nice moments, and the funniest thing is that when she came back I was like "She is going to simply say "Tes." isn't she?". 4/5.

Idk why I haven't paid more attention to the OP because it is fucking awesome. That beginning intro showing the important character pairs this season looks so slick. Oooh so Tenzou is going to have a big part this time along with that scarred girl, oh yeah I am going to be really looking forward to seeing more of this. And that fight with Toussaint and Shakespeare was pretty cool, hmmm they seem to have a history with each other too. Looking forward to seeing their rematch as well.

That Queen of England looks great and I just love her design. And so is this season only dealing with England? Because that's what it seems like to me which also gives me hope for more seasons (lol already hoping for more).

Once again Toori was being a beast this episode, lol his timing is always so perfect especially when he's falling from the sky. Dno if I am sad or happy to see him with clothes back on but haha it took him 2 whole ep for him to do that. And lmfao that scene where he was on the speakers talking and waking up all the people was hilarious. National intercourse... Teehee.

The opening is definitely really cool. It took some time to get used to but it's looking like a good match for the S1 OP, which I loved. Also liking the EP with all the characters in cute cartoon style.

As for where S2 is going, I believe the Allied Musashi-England battle against Tres Espana will cover the entire season. However, seeing that the OP repeatedly features fighting against TRUMPS, I'm guessing that eventually it will turn into a free-for-all in the name of claiming Mortal Sin Armaments. By the end of S2 Horizon could have access to the three shown so far (the other two held by Shakespeare and Juana).

And not to forget about Toori, I think he's one of the few main characters where people actually feel unnatural seeing clothed...

I wasn't able to watch it right away, but at last - I found some time. To be honest, this anime is too fast-paced for me, I can't understand a lot of things and tend to forget some characters, since there are so many of them... This time too, I'm really confused and don't really know what to think about it...

This episode mostly focused on introducing the various characters and the overall situation, which may be boring for some since there was no "action" but I enjoyed it nevertheless. Those so called set-up episodes are needed to establish the needed background for the episodes to come. Remember the first season? It was basically the same during the first few episodes. 5/5 for a good set-up episode

So far I liked the first season better, but it's only episode 2 so I can't complain.

much better pacing. With mostly 2-3 characters per scene, their personalities are better presented: the fight of words with a bit of char history (student 13?), the talk between Malga & Neshinbara.

didn't get why blueman (Macbeth) was trying to merge with Neshinbara at first, but Stilts explained it & the prophecies well. However their strength difference isn't just Old English vs non-native speaker (japanese?), or using established fiction vs adlib words. Shakespeare explained the huge ether comes from her Armament of deadly sins. Neshinbara clearly doesn't have much ether, unless he borrows from Tori.

Ben Jonsen was awesome, main action of the episode, borrowing Naurto Gai sensei's "power of YOUTH", and sweating green flames!
