THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
This is a cool episode. I like the progression. Nice art and action! Looking
forward to more!

I wanted to add some pics.

My favorite scene:

I read about it and it looks good, can't wait for the subs to come out! By the way, I've seen some of the pics of the fanservice in the episode, can't wait for the DVD.


About you inquiry I am not sure who they are going to do with these in the DVD but adding nipples and more revealing is about as far it will go in this series. I better not show this stuff to some of my religious friends they think of me bad.

Some fan service!


That last pic I just hid my eyes and said Index! O_O No! Do not want to see. Other than that it was ok and ecchi was ok but strange I did not see as much of it as before.

Then again if any of of you notice there seems to be more of it in Kemeko DX and Kannagi. Guess things are wrapping up in this season.

Oh no! Index got captured! Where is the clone story?

Some terms to explain of the episode:

Gregorio Choir: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gregorio_Aglipay
Based on a catholic figure.

Seraph: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seraph
Celestial being.

Izzard Aureolus: They might have taken the name after this guy but why I am not sure: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aureolus

Watched it. Loved it. Want more of it. Same old same old.

But really, good episode. The fanservice kind of surprised me, but I'm not complaining.

And like all the others have said, the next episode looks quite promising.

Felli disapproves of this thread.

Sniff, sniff like I said earlier does anyone know if index will be ok? I got kind of worried seeing her being dragged unconscious with that guy.

That was a nice episode. I'd really like to know what Aureolus is trying to do and what happens to Touma in the preview. Hopefully this doesn't disappointed me like the last 2 fights >_>

And Index plays the "dumb girl who gets herself into trouble again" perfectly.

And Aureolous in this series might resemble this guy more than the one posted previously: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paracelsus

Yup, it's true. At least it makes his crush on Index less creepy, right? :-P

This is info is 100% to be taken with logic. So as far as notations come from catholic religion, the info I provided is logical but more is logic. It is up to you to take that info and think how logical it goes with this episode.

I found about many things in a logical manner like this.

Pretty good had its funny and serious parts.
LOL at Styil pushing him down the stairs and saying "Bad luck, scarecrow" IN ENGLISH..
Also his hand did exactly what he said it did in episode 6 when he's trying to cheer up index about his amnesia.

A ok episode didnt really explain a whole lot that we didnt already know and they could have done a far better job on the action hopefully and it looks like it but hopefully the action picks up next episode, still very beautifully drawn though lol

the ep + explanations/conversations went by pretty fast, had to pause a few times. but besides that it is quite good. and lol at knights of the round!

i really like the science vs magic aspect of this show, especially when they insert real/famous references.

Yeah me too I found it annoying. I had to pause also but as well to understand the comprehension of it. That is why I decided to dig deeper and found some other revealing things on wiki.

The pic of Kamijou being full of blood, freaks me and he looks highly maniacal from his expression.

Also I find Aureolus is a dirty character. I think being responsible for using students as means to his objectives is low thrash scum. I know it's been done before in anime but using christian terms within such a purpose should not be tolerated.

I wonder why the holy bombardment did not work other than Aureolus' Ars Magna power, which to my knowledge is a re constructive magic that rebuilds that which is destroyed.

Also I find Aureolus too powerful to be given such as the power he is. To control body action with words and will projection.

Wait till you meet the guy accelerator. HA! I hope he can beat the crap out of Aureolus.

Nice episode, but you can't judge it alone since it rolls into the next one. The funneh bits were good, but Deep Blood seems a bit stupd atm, like she doesn't know Izzard's intention are obviously not good.

But judging how that alchemist controls people perhaps she is controlled as well.

Meh, I'm tired of this guy whining about how he isn't the same person as before he lost his memories. How would he know if he is different?! Besides that, he is the exact same annoying guy, and to hear him lament that he thinks he is different is just ridiculous. None of this plot is cohesive, or making any sense. Hopefully they can focus in on something pretty soon.

Huh, yeah, I'm confused by this episode. By this show actually. It feels like there's something to grasp, but all the eps are so messy and slow that I can't seem to understand what's happening on the screen and the logic behind the characters' motivations. It was a decent episode though, with nice action scenes and some kind of development I guess.

Exactly my thoughts, Touma is exactly the same as before, absolutely nothing changed appart that he doesn't know that he is always the same as before (huh, a bit complex, doesn't makes sense anyway). Very disturbing plot and characters. On top of that, some dialogues are really strange, I wonder if the translation is messed up or if they are like that in Japanese...

In every age, in every place, the deeds of men remain the same.

So...how is he supposed to know he's acting the same as before again? We only know he is acting the same because we saw him before he got his brain fried. What about it doesn't makes sense? I think it's a pretty simple concept. He's going through the same problem Index faced back when she found herself in Japan. The only difference is that Touma has people that knew him from before, so he can guess a little bit about how he's supposed to act.

Don't bother Leon, most people here on MAL doesn't have a brain to think before asking dumb question or saying dumb affirmation.

i think i prefer the faster pace to the slow pace of the first arc.

this one at least had a good balance between explanation and action. Instead of 90% explanation and 10 % action.

Is the next episode the climax?

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.

No, the school place had a barrier or seal placed in to protect "Deep Blood". Basically, anyone who was "inside the barrier" could not interact with anyone "outside the barrier", hence why no one noticed Styil and Touma (or the dead knight). There's no deeper meaning to it. Just a magical barrier. I can understand being confused about it though, since the explanation was a bit awkward and they didn't bother saying he was explaining how the "seal" worked until the very end of the explanation.

I loved the fact that he just put his right hand on his head and just remembered and how he got Stiyl to remember was great. Next episode is going to be fun.

To me this is getting retardedly confusing but Index, Imagine Breaker, cute miko, Kaori, and how serious they make stuff sound is keeping me into this lol. Gotta go read some summaries or something. Also lol at Styl's wiki.

Until the science part starts showing they can fight equally against the sorcerers, it still seems like comparing those named characters vs generic troops in most anime, a one sided battle between overpowered against cannon fodders.

So far... the science is controlling real world, but the alchemist's seems like doing it through controlling perception of that reality. I'd like to see how the author could counter that without using the same thing, or Touma's hand.
