THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Poor Shark brother from Sasami-san's story.

Background story about the family: the power was inherited in family, brother been serving Sasami-san even before. Arm on the chest is another personality that "ordered by shrine looks weird. Wow, the 3 "sisters" having the power is because of the teacher was related to the shrine?

It's nice that Sasami-san can get out now.

New ED clip and 3 sister singing it instead... lol~

I'm still not too used to the artwork style of the series yet but this sure here is something you don't see everyday:



Another strange and absurd episode like usual. Wtf @ that arm's position. ;o

No boob weapon this time around :|

Samami-san: I'm going to work hard today.
Shih: (I find that hard to believe). Today, and today only?


Shih: And I tried hitting the floor; nothing came to my door!!!

I'm a little disappointed that our resident hikikomori is able to effortlessly go outside now. I thought that would last longer. :P

Have to admit even as a big SHAFT fan this is really trying my determination to stay interested. So far there's really nothing too special for this to stand out on its own.

I'm sure eventually we'll be getting more of a filled view of this story later on, but right now it's just a jumbled mess honestly.

Well everything makes sense now or at least I hope that explanation was pretty much the jist of it.

Lol at that whole fight scene. Random explosions, tanks, and copters everywhere. And that shark thing in the beginning was pretty funny too.

So Sasami isn't a shut-in anymore?

Back story, character development, and Yagami sister's origin explanation all topped off with magic and explosions?

Brilliant! 5/5

The moral of this story is: Go with the flow, and you'll enjoy the anime.

I gave up expecting consistency. Now it's stress-free and fun to watch.

As usual, I'm befuddled as to just what the duck I'm watching.
Oh well, it's kind of fun watching something completely devoid of sense every once in a while.

Also, I get the feel Saitou Chiwa slightly changed her tone of voice, so now she sounds just like Kotori. Awesome <3

Best episode yet 5/5
Nice backstory.
I really like the art style and having a new ending each episode is pretty cool.

Pretty decent story. The backstory and development finally being introduced is a huge plus in its own right. However, it did feel a bit rushed given how the problems and conclusions were all done so quickly in one episode. I feel like they should have taken out E02 altogether (which was utter crap and contributed nothing to the series), and elaborated on all the fine details of this episode.

The drama was decent but nothing inherently interesting coming from how forced the whole thing feels. The sister trio introduction was done decently as well, but it still felt far more contrived than it should have been. E.g., so Kagami just happens to be an experimented upon human and our big moe Tama is also just a part of Tsurugi? SHAFT, you could at least put some effort into the supporting cast.. On a plus, the animation continues to be amazing, and with the crazy (albeit kind of useless) shrine battle, the visuals were an absolute delight to watch.

But that aside, I'm giving this episode a (6/10) for its decent characterization and overall good but flawed drama.

I wonder if all those supernatural things are true or everything are Sasami delusions, and she's maybe a schizophrenic.

Eh, what was that? The story sounds fucked up now and honestly this episode made me lose interest in the show rather than develop it... I wonder what's gonna happen next week. Weird, weird...

I have no idea what to expect now from this show. It still remains really weird but I
ll stick on watching this. This ep wasn''t as good as the previous one but that was because a large part of the story got told in this ep. So it was a little boring. Hope that next ep is going to be better.

BTW the ED of this ep was horrible x.x

She does use a very similar voice for both, I noticed a lot of Kotori in it as I just read Rewrite (chara routes, please give translation patch for last two...), which was pretty sweet.

And I think the ED being terribly sung is more or less the point, haha.

I fucking love headtilts. I love Tsurugi. Tsurugi headtilts? Excellent.

For the episode itself, explanations explanations explanations. It wasn't a great episode, but we got to know a lot, and now that Sasami can leave her house... I'm looking forward to the next episode.

I'm not going to state that the show is objectively good at this point, but I'm enjoying it a lot and looking forward to it every week. That's enough for me.

For whatever reason this felt more like an episode to end the season than an episode to kick off the season...but anyway, I'm enjoying all the quirkiness of this series. It certainly isn't above-8 material, but it's not bad.

Absolutely not. I adore this show so far.

Although "weird" =/= "hard to follow" or "senseless."

I'm really digging this show. I didn't expect the weirdness to all have an actual explanation to it. It's interesting and odd and I am very curious to see where they go next.

Haterz gonna hate.

My feeling is that the show will take a slice of life direction after the third episode, perhaps like Sankarea.
