THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Well, I quite enjoyed the latest episode.

Yuugiri is soooo cute @ that amusement park. I thought Hinomiya was a good caretaker for her this episode. I felt sorry for her though when she was left alone like that at the park. Poor girl :(

Also, probably not a good idea to piss her off lol. Happy Birthday to Kyousuke as well :)

Lol at when Yujirou and the others thought of Andy when they found Yugiri crying on top of him

So Andy is an investigator working for the US huh? There's still that item he needs to steal from PANDRA so we don't know completely what he's after. This episode I think did a good job examining the series two main characters Andy and Hyoubu. Hyoubu it seems is running on borrowed time according to tests he did in the hospital and I can only assume going Unlimited isn't helping that process slow down. Espers see Hyoubu as a lighthouse in forever foggy world while everyone else sees him as a murderer. As for Andy, at the very minimum he doesn't expect to be investigating PANDRA for more than a year. The episode didn't really make clear if he's cooperating with Minamoto, I think he is because they threatened to leak info about him if he didn't but if someone could clear it up I'd appreciate it. Of course knowing Hyoubu he already knows about Andy....

We also got more context of how people perceive Espers in normal society. They're looked down upon similar to the world of X-Men where there's a negative stigma toward anyone that's an esper even if it's a small child. Still those parents who got their child back because of her were huge dicks.

Very nice episode.

So Hyoubu doesn't have much time left? Sounds bad.
I hope Andy will stay with P.A.N.D.R.A. and give up his job for the US.

Yugiri was cute in this episode. Wow I would have never guessed Hyoubu might die T__T. BABEL knows about Andy?? They are trying to make him a double agent. Wow Momiji's sad past. WTH they were gonna kill her. Aww cute young Yoh. Happy Birthday Kyousuke !!!!

Yuugiri is bad for my blood pressure, that girl is dangerous.

Another great episode, now Andy is put in the tough spot to pick a side. Even though both sides end in the same outcome which is betraying PANDRA.

Man when Yuugiri went crazy things really spiraled out of control...can't wait for next week, it looks like he is clashing with the children again.

This show might just be starting to become my fav of the season.

Awesome episode as usual. Man this show is good :)

Yugiri too cute for my heart, Easily in my top5 anime loli's ever!! <3
But man how those people treated her was so sad...I really felt bad for her T_T
I lol'd at the lolicon moment XDXD


I wonder what Andy will do...now that he knows the 2 sides of Kyousuke. It must be a pretty tough choice since I'm seeing that he can already be considered part of the PANDRA family. ANd I think deep down he likes spending time with them.

Happy Birthday Kyousuke...Hope he lives til his nxt one :(
I wonder how old he is anyway...since he looked the same as he does now even when all his crew were kids.

Also that woman from BABEL, seems to know him really well and that question about her age had sth to do with it.

I begin to like Yuugiri more in this episode, the relationships between Andy and Yuugiri have improve.
I actually like this episode, but somehow I know that Andy will not betray Hyoubu.

Hyoubu have a extremely nice power unlimited but in pay for it he lose lifespan.
He is a old guy but I actually didn't expect him to die so soon.

Yeah I also believe that Hyoubu know Andy but ignore it.

Great episode.

I like that Yuugiri and Andy are spending more time together and bonding. I can see Yuugiri viewing Andy more like a onii-chan in the future. Andy is beginning to sympathize more with PANDRA, which only makes his eventual betrayal that much more sad in the end.

Didn't expect that Hyoubu wouldn't have that much longer to live.

Loled at Andy being a spy from the US, called it xD
Episode was great but it irked me how they portray BABEL as some incompetence nobs who keep letting Hyoubu and then Andy fool around with.
Hyoubu's life is drained away by the day, but he will live in the end cause' there will be another season of Zettai Karen. I just know it ;)
I love Andy's internal conflict. He is the real main character in this series. The story was told from his perception. Let's see how he will resolve this conflict in the end.

Yugiri was so adorable...stop tugging at my heart, Yugiri. Stop it...

On another note, Andy being confirmed as a USEI agent was not all too surprising....
Still, we're starting to get a semblance of an overlying plot for the season, so I'm happy.

All in all, good episode.

Looks like next episode we'll have Kaoru vs Unlimited Hyoubu...along with more Andy snooping around. Can't wait!

All hail the adorable chess master!

Unless he turns double agent. I would not be surpised if he does.

At this point I'm totally on PANDRA's side. I suspect that Hyoubu has a slightly different take on why he eliminated many of the original BABEL members--if he in fact did so.
Please don't feed the trolls!

Probably not. He's on record as having no trust for normals and it would be completely within his character to suspect that BABEL, as originally founded, was, or would end up as, just a front for the suppression of espers, something he's vehemently against to the point that, yes, he would kill them. The contradiction this episode introduces is one of the key aspects of his character - he's very much like X-Men's Magneto in that he completely loathes normal people, has deep respect for his own kind, is preparing for a war between the two that he sees as inevitable,

He'd also kill Minamoto in a heartbeat if not for the fact that the three girls, and especially Kaoru, are too attached to him.
The only real question is whether or not the intentions of the people he killed did in fact fit with Kyousuke's view, which they may have.

This ep further reaffirms Andy's stance as a lolicon, although now he finds himself at a crossroad of betrayal or having his mission sabotaged, i really hope the series can at some point give us insight as to where Andy stands in terms of his real feelings toward the members of PANDRA.

I wasn't watching this anime and just heard about Nostalgia Critic and Angry Video Game Nerd cameos in this series.

I think I better pick up this series now. Gotta love a series that gives some love to NC and AVGN.

She is indeed . But

This is a decent and unexpectedly entertaining loli-centric episode . Yea , Yuugiri is just so so so freakin cute .HNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNG . stop . I love her .
And she finally lost control of her powers . So she is that of a high-level esper .She's prolly around a lvl 6 or 7 ? Those illusions were realistic as hell .
And those normal people are indeed fcked up . The moment they knew that she probably was an esper they immediately treated her like a criminal . wth , how can you treat a cute loli like that ?

The plot is moving steadily . Seems like they're gonna use Andy to lure out PANDRA . I doubt he will gonna do it because it seemed like he is already treating others like a family .
And they finally told us that Hyoubu's health/body is declining because
And also because of age .

oh , and that Momiji flashback , wow , who knew that blue haired flat girl would turn into this current Momiji ? lol . And Magi was awesome as ever .

PANDRA's gifts to Hyoubu was funny as heck . They really sympathize with the old man err Hyoubu . Especially that back scratcher .And in the shot where Momiji and Patty was stopping Yoh because he was trying to put those candles on Hyoubu's cake .lol

Next episode , Hyoubu continues on using his limiter release . They should find a way to keep his from dying . This is a fantastic series so far . 5/5
And some The Children goodness

Exactly what I was thinking. I usually don't like the whole betraying your own country/group but It would be pretty sad if he left PANDRA. Great episode, though its sad that Hyoubu is dying.
If strength is justice, then is powerlessness a crime?

First I was like: "Wtf?". Then I checked, double checked and went to MAL. Great stuff. I'm also surprised so many people that watch anime know about NC and AVGN.

I felt so sad for Yuugiri, but I kinda was curious when she released previously. I'm also sad for Hyoubu -sigh-

I might be going on a feels trip soon!
