A little dull at first, this week's character was not the most enjoyable. =/

Started getting more interesting when she got the letter back from Angel, a bit unexpected.

They start exchanging gifts and gaining good happy fortunes throughout the episode. Felt pretty nice seeing that. ^^

The end was really sad though. Turns out that letter actually saved her from making a regrettable decision, it's sad that she ended up dying in the end anyways. :'(

Amazing episode, this show has so many ups and downs. Sometimes it has bright episodes to dark episodes to funny but i am happy the moeblob stopped. Really was not working out since every episode of the blob was pointless.

Heartwarming episode indeed, first time ive watched this show and wanted more.

After last week, I didn't expect such a dark mood this time. I felt so bad for her that I really wanted a good ending when she visited Angel. What happened was sad but at least it's a refreshing change in the series.

This has to be my favorite episode of the series. I thought I was having a bad day and could possibly get in big trouble tomorrow but watching this made me cheer up. Of course, maybe letting a few tears out and having things put into perspective is the reason for cheering up.

Also, the change in the background was really interesting and helped set the mood for the episode.

Why did they make this episode? q_q I'm in Sengoku Collection for the happy, fun times. This episode started off depressing, then got sad, then started looking up only so it could crush me at the end with saddness!

Not one of my favourites by any means... but the story /was/ good. Just not what I was expecting.

Easily the worst episode yet. Tried to be way too artsy and so much forced drama. This show is far better with the cute girl of the week setup.

I'm deciding if this was the best episode from this show ^^

The suspense was so good, even if it was predictable, the end was so sad.

Really loved it.

I think it was a bit inspired from Daddy-Long-Legs.

This show need more episodes like this, and less episodes like ep 2, 13, or 15.

But the funny or the random ones are ok.
(seriously, this second season was crappy until this episode)

I kind of dug the "everything goes from bad to worse" vibe. This show's a seriously mixed bag, it's not afraid to try anything out. That might be giving it too much credit actually.

Omg. All dem feels. I'm depressed. /hasgoneemo. Pretty good episode.

On the bright side, next episode is FINALLY Mitsuhide. Which means plot advancement!

I felt like this episode was parodying something in particular but I have no idea what it was.

Does anyone have any ideas?

Each episode has a different director, and you could really tell here. It was so incredibly out of place in this show and I really hope they don't do any more artsy depressing shit like this.

Well, that was...different. And probably my favorite episode. I can't remember the last time this show got me invested in any of its characters, and the end made me really sad. Was definitely not expecting that from this series.

Depressing episode for sure. She reminds me of Mero from Sankarea.

I really like this episode, it's started off with one bad luck after a another but then it
went to good at the end. Very different from the rest of the episode.

Omg, i had an extremely bad day as well! When i watched the beginning, i thought wow my day couldnt get any worser if even my anime has bad luck but it really cheered me up.

Anyways awesome episode, sad end. Best episode so far

Ok wow. This is not my favorite episode. It's not heartwarming or refreshing and definitely not phenomenal. Honestly it's not even remarkable. This episode is a blemish and a mistake on this series.

So far I have seen a series that's full of 'moeblob' with a little bit of serious/gritty action to remind me that everyone just happens to be a samurai. This episode, however, broke that trend which in itself isn't a bad thing, but it makes me wonder how it has it's place other than a random sock in the gut to push out all those good moe vibes to get you ready for the plot progression starting in the next episode.

I always saw this series as a -collection- of short stories that all take place in the same universe where some of the people in it cross paths. Nobunaga has so far been the common link between most of these stories and I was seriously hoping she (or even Hideyoshi since Yoshisugu is supposed to be her retainer) would show up and pull this poor girl and her new friend out of the gutter and drag them back to japan. But no, that didn't happen. No super strong samurai hero showed up to help this sad retainer and her friend overcome the 9-5 demon.

Honestly, I watch moeblob anime for a reason. I don't mind a little progression or drama as long as it doesn't mess with the sanctity of the big picture. Even if that big picture is a little plot-less. There are too many drama, combat, mecha and 'bad-end' anime out there for people that like to get their "feel" from anime.

I wind down with anime. If I want to feel something I usually watch a movie or play a game. If it weren't for that, sure, I could see myself watching a little drama anime, but I don't want 'bad-end' drama in my blob. I'm tired of these curve balls, and I sure don't have any praise for them.

Okay...this hit pretty hard. From the opening moments I was afraid that it would be a sad story, but I still hoped for a happy ending in the end...maybe she will be revisited in an upcoming episode?

5/5 but I'm depressed and I watch this show at the end of a long day to relax. And I really liked Yoshitsugu.

This is definitely better than the last episode. It seems each character story is made by different writer.
