THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Some people got into the world she/he set. Very creepy and funny for some reason.

Flying met the swimmer. Another one w. the wing met the wolf, then later joined by Kotobuki-san's character. Kobayashi-san's character vs. tramp user. Robot met the kid/sylph fighter. Inoue-san's character met the doll fighter. Horizon sensing the danger, but Tori's not worried and continues with the date, which she's not into feelings.

OnoD's character with the big breast girl to a castle.

ED for this ep.: Side SunSet.

August 11, 2012 airing 2 eps. at once (even though one week break, we catch up with 2 eps. the following week) in ]MBS, but TOKYO MX (Sunday night) still airs.

Again, this series truly shines with its battle scenes. I don't know, it's just so different from what other animes offer and I'm loving every bit of it. Too bad two of the battles ended rather quickly. I really wanted to see more of Ulquiaga at work but Margot definitely earned her stripes with the swimmer. On the other hand, Naruze is 0-2 since this season began. I'd hoped that she'd rebound against Drake, but I'm all for Tachibana Gin getting more screentime. Maybe the old guy who came into the red mist with her will help Masazume or Neito out now that Gin has already jumped into the fray?

The bit with Suzu and Adele is pretty good. I'd say that was the only part of this ep that attempted at humor other than Ulquiaga going at Nicholas Bacon's privates...

But the main point of this episode, I think, is how hard everyone is trying for Toori and Horizon to have a good date. It's nice of Toori to completely trust them as well.

Margot was awesome as FUCK this episode. Using Aquaman's yet stream to create oxygen, using her own PLOT to also create oxygen...I have never seen someone take advantage of their chest like that.

Still don't get how Gin can get sucked into the stage.
Wasn't she still in Spain in the previous episode ? <== likely I missed parts of the stories somewhere

No, Gin was with the Vice counselor when the "Play" happened. They were just scouting around on a diplomatic ship in London

Anyone else thought of Blazblue while watching this episode?
Especially the bit with Mitotsudaira and Walshingham.

Another interesting episode, mainly the battles.
While Adelle and Suzu were hiding in that mecha, the perverts outside were lining up to hear what they were doing XD

Damn. Super awesome. Although I don't get some of the mechanics, still the battles was epic.

Asama's outfit looks good. Sad for Naruze. She lost and got called weak.

CR and its subs are down right now for this episode. This sucks, have to watch it somewhere else




Anyways, epic speeches, brief battles, and a double date. Horizon II once again delivers fine entertainment.

Also, the OST during the battle against that wolf is pretty epic.

Hmm, interesting. With Tachibana Gin fighting for Naruze, I have a hard time thinking that battle will be lost, especially now that the werewolf's already been injured. On Neito's front, Walshingham is proving to be a very difficult foe, but out of everyone other than Kimi, I'd say that Neito's been the most motivated when it comes to Toori so I don't see a loss there either. Masazume is the one battle where it seems a little unclear to me. Unless her new mous proves to be useful or Diego (that old man who uses one of the Testament Armaments for Tres Espana) jumps in for her, she really has zero fighting ability...

The fights were awesome and I am looking forward to seeing more next episode, especially Nate's fight. That looks to be a good fight, and I am still loving the way she says waga ō. Poor Naruze :( she's been getting the short end of the stick a lot lately. Thank god Tachibana came in just in time to interrupt the fight. I have no idea how Masazumi is going to come outta her situation triumphant but she's gunna do it somehow, maybe with some help. Malga was really smart in her fight and aww I wanted to see more of Kiyonari.

Lol at the way Adele tricked all of those perverts and niceee it looks like she made some fun addition to her armor. And gg Shirojiro has to read through all of those papers haha.

Ehh I am starting to feel that the scarred girl is going to be sacrificed in place of Queen Mary or something. And I am sorta bit disappointed that Tori didn't end up naked this episode lol. >.>

AMAZING battles.

The endless debate between fans and haters. At one point, after spending a lot of time on MAL, you just realize it's totally pointless.

Nicolas Bacon is my favorite of Oxford Academy, interesting fairy powers and abilities, and hilarious too. The fight even had
. The underwater battle was great too and as always epic Slicing Dragonfly action. Good episode in the end even if tons of battles were covered.

Oh and I wish they translated this. :/ I dont know that language.

It was mentioned in first season that Margot and Naruze originated in Germany so there spells are in German.
And the Japanese audience doesn't know what it says either unless they know German.

Neito's origins got a little more interesting as well seems she is part werewolf which sounds very interesting to be honest.
I wonder how her fight will turn out since it's pretty rough from the looks of it.

The first half of the episode felt wasted, but at least there was finally some fighting going on. I liked that some of the battles ended relatively fast and it wasn't an endless spam of bad guy mopping the floor with the good guy, until good guy realizes on the verge of death that he has a special move that can obliterate his enemy. 3/5.

Could someone tell me why Gin interfered? I don't see a reason why she should defend someone from Musashi.

Shakespeare spell targets governement officers. it dragged Gin into that dimension because she is an officer too (3rd Special Agent).

Testament rules dictates that duels are allowed. But, you are not suppose to do this unless you have declared war. Drake have broken testament rules by fighting in a secret war. The so called england's justice played unfair and then she interfered, wanted to put england's justice to the right path.

I don't think she's so much defending someone from Musashi as she's defending her own place to challenge Musashi. Tres Espana has a lot of reasons to fight Musashi, as you know by now, but Gin has a score that she wants to settle by herself. At the end of S1, Muneshige's defeat (and the loss of Hita no Taida) had forced Juana to strip him of his title and Gin asked to be put into battle in his place. When asked why, Gin answered: "If I can be of help in defeating Musashi, then it would prove that Muneshige's loss was just a fluke (since he is stronger than I)." Now, if England defeats Musashi then Gin would not have a chance to bring Muneshige's honor back, would she?

Found this on Animesuki. About Drake and his wife:

There are many kind of serial killers, his wife is the kind that has an insane blood thirst, so much that if she can't cut people she would start cutting herself. What she did was she went to a rehab place called On・The・Cutting Board where Living Dead volunteers would come and get chopped, and they (not clear from the wording if it's the rehab people or she) also opened a meat shop there and it's exactly there that Drake propose while he's eating meat. It's hard for her to find a mate who can withstand getting stabbed and he wants to eat meat all the time. This works out perfect cause she is also a super M with self-hurt tendencies (so she doesn't mind being eaten) and he can withstand her physically brutality!!!

Truly one of the best couple in Horizon!!!

Wow so i wasn't the only one, that's exactly what i saw in that fight in particular. Quite a few of the characters in this anime would quite seamlessly fit in the Blazblue universe. Arc System Works has developed a Persona 4 fighting game and with the popularity of this anime in japan who knows.

Well they are already making a PSP game, but it's more of a Strategy game. A fighting games seem plausible if they decide to make one.

Great episode, I wonder why I delayed this, these battles are just so unique and really something different compared to other action shows.
I'm looking forward to more.
