THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
The little guy is also one of the guys who has the card's power?

It seems like there's a relation between the card and the fiances.

She also has another power that she used unconsciously and saved her mother when she was young. That power is the only thing she can use to save her father, who seems to be in heavy sickness?. Except that guy with glasses didn't tell there's price using that power.

During the sword fight practice between FukuJun's character and Yonaga-san's character, she saw that FukuJun's character might have high possibility of being her husband?

Really liked the episode for the plot and all the revelations. The best moment was, apart from the Liberta Nova moments, the Jolly finally taking off his sunglasses in one scene, wow.

Mondo (papa) has the best card and all his moments were so good, especially that backstory. Didn't know Jolly was with him even as a teen. that whole scene of contracting with the Torocco, and then choosing the world as all the other cards flew was so impressive. I didn't know he was bearing such a burden like that, but all for protecting others is nice.

Still think that Ojousama is close on the edge of being overpowered. How does she get not only Lovers but La Ruota Della Fortuna, with that impressive ability. Though I guess with such an ability comes great consequence, and I think shes about to do something not smart. Her memories will be lost all for the sake of papa, surely theres another way?.

Surely were still a month or so away from the Duello with all these outstanding issues, 3 or so episodes left, hopefully it gets 12 more episodes...

Probably the most intense ep ? I really liked that they finally got serious . I can't wait to see what's going to happen next time and if she will use the Wheel of Fortune . Also waiting forward for the Arcana Duelo xD

I didn't expect Felicita to be a Tarocco Hybrid (Lovers and Wheel Of Fortune).

Finally some revelations behind Jolly's secret homunculus project. Didn't think that the Arcana cards will have such consequences for their users. I was suprised to realize Felicitá was contracted to another card that can make her loose her memories??
Jolly without sunglasses!!! *~* Little Jolly was cute too.
And no punishment on the round table this time too. At the end this show is getting more and more serious and there's no sign of the Arcana Duello starting any time soon. So I'm going to be waiting for a second season some time in the future^^
Can't wait for next week because of this cliffhanger they left first time in the show o.o Judging from the preview something will happen!
Jolly in the preview was funny :D Of course I'll watch it. To the end at that.

Finally a non-filler episode. LOL 5/5 because I enjoyed it.

Mondo was hot when he was young. *_* And Jolly was adorable when he was younger.

Oh wow... Felicita just got more badass now that we find out she has 2 Arcana
Though considering both technically are 'support-type' powers.......guess it's less of a stress on her body than one might think? (Though I guess memory loss always sucks)

Jolly looks like he's Luca's father without the shades ._.

Arcana Famiglia seems to have strayed kinda off track from the whole Duello thingy but I'm starting to kinda like this anime~ But damn was Mondo so bishie before he grew a beard ;D haha!

The duello can fit into one ep, or two if they're gonna drag it out. The duello basically happens right after Felicita uses the Wheel of Fate anyway so 3 episodes will cover it. There's no need for a second season, it'd be stupid to try and stretch it out for another 12 episodes.

I join everyone who says they want to play the game and also those that like the story and revelations. This actually reminds me a lot of Tasogare Otome x Amnesia. Awful and stupid romance based fillers at first but when the plot started it was good. Anime like this make me want to stop watching airing stuff so that I could skip all of the fillers and start with story. Anyway, I'm really looking forward to next episode. And this is the first time this has happened with this anime and it wasn't Luca related. XD

You guys should get into the habit of reading other posts.
But seeing as you apparently can't be bothered doing that, let me reiterate;

the duello doesn't need more than 2 episodes.

In the game there are 2 battles.
One is between the suitor of your choice and their rival (aka Luca vs Jolly), and the second battle is Felicita against the suitor.

These battles are also generally just talking for like 80% of it, and seeing as the anime has hardly established anything, they can cut it out with no loss.
So you could fit the whole duello in one episode.

It doesn't need another season for the duello. It can wrap it all up in the last 3 episodes.

I almost had a fangirl moment at that part!

I loved this episode! It answered a lot of my questions!!
I can see Felicita loosing her memories and then regaining them at the very last moment...

Most people were looking forward to the Duello. I guess one episode for it is fair but for all that, maybe the series should have been an OVA instead? Some episodes were cute but others were predictable and boring.

And I don't like Felicita. She's s strong female character but....something about her is annoying.

Well, I'm looking forward to the next episode. This was a really good one.

The Duello's coming up soon, and it's obviously either Liberta or Nova that's going to win, despite the fact that I want Luca too. D': But it's okay! Since Liverta and Nova are awesome too. I really like Luca though, he's probably my favourite.

well.. when Mondo announced it, he did say it was in 2 months (which we were reminded again in this episode.)
People complain that the past 8 or so episodes have been fillers, but kindly remember that 2 months is quite a long time and a lot of events could happen.. I have a feeling that the final episode will be the duel/tournament, since technically every episode leading up to then has been character development and such. I'm not complaining about the anime plot-wise.

Amazing episode, lots of new information to think about.

Loved the backstory with Mondo, finally got tp see his past as well as little Jolly! I still wonder what his power with the Moon is though. Arcana powers are really interesting to hear about.

I bet when Fel becomes strong enough to control her powers, she won't fall victim to the Wheel of Fortune. Or else it would be pretty sad to start over.
