OH YURARIN, WHAT HAVE YOU DONE TO YOUR HAIR

That was an alright episode. The animation quality was a little better.



^I loved this still.

Meh. It was boring. The survival club turned out a shooting club. Since shooting is simple, it's boring for viewers and feels like watching someone's video game play. They should've focused on fieldcraft and outdoor life rather than shooting, and then the series would've been interesting like Lord of the Flies.

Wtf, is she going to grow her hair back or something?? At least the ED made it up.

I just love the style of this series still though.


The fight was okay I guess. Girls vs Boys :D
That new girl Rin is a badass. I kinda like style as well in this show so far.

RIP YURA's hair. RIP.

"Sabage" (サバゲ) is airsoft. There's nothing more to it than that.

I agree it's a bit misleading, but that's just how Japan is with engrishy terms.

Survival Game is the name for airsoft. Perhaps you should just do a bit of setting some reasonable expectation by checking PV etc before starting a series to avoid such misplaced expectation. I am sure a lot of people came into this series having done so and knew it is all about shooting NOT outdoor survival.

Well, but at least as far as I know Japan invented airsoft, so perhaps we should adopt their choice of name (like we did with karaoke) instead LOL

Anyway.... So many changes of hair style and at the end it is a short cut?! I am disappointed...
So MAL finally starts locking news threads that are only a few weeks old?

I wonder where was the announcement of this change? Or we are seeing yet another case of changes made that impacted users but not communicated to them?

I wonder how long people would put up with this.

As much as I have a bunch of information to share about anime announced recently I cannot share it in news board, and the anime series is too disorganized and chaotic to share information except with people already interested in the particular series.

Yura had a heel face turn with her hairstyle and personality, she's now a cheerful girlish tomboy.

As for the battles, they were pretty good with Yura actually hitting someone despite her shooting still leaving a lot to be desired. Rin is a nice character and a badass like Sonora but I still prefer Sonora over her.

I think Karila has some special hack mode that disables gravity when she needs it. So silly watching that part though.

I enjoyed the battles in this one, but I wish the girls other than Yura, Sonora and Karila got more development. So far all the other girls seem pretty much interchangeable to me, both on and off the battlefield.

My first exposure to the term "survival game" was through Mirai Nikki. Needless to say, my expectations were way more misplaced, hehe.

Wasn't the word "airsoft" also coined by the Japanese? They do call the guns themselves "airsoft guns", and they did invent them. The word did always strike me as kinda Engrishy, even before I found out that the sport comes from Japan. But then, here in Russia we call it "strikeball", so it's not like we're in any position to judge XD

What's with the new haircut ;_; it kind of disappointed me she looked so cute with the long hair, even if she had a ponytail it would have been a better solution.

Finally, Yurarin is motivated to do her best.

It kinda irritated me that she didn't a thing, but we'll get to see her (hopefully) in action next week.

Survival game competition. lol @ Yura's hairstyles. Yura's too nervous, but she got the flag with the help of others. Introducing the group for the finalist, who is Miyukichi's character's ex-partner. They are indeed strong. She gave up and got scolded by Miyukichi's character. Did she just cut her hair like Miyukichi's character??

More Survival game next time. 25:44 again.

I didn't really like the "character development," but at least she'll stop being a wimp now so we can see just how her onigiri making skills factor into her shooting.

The whole episode was ruined for me because of the end. I'm in a bad mood now. I really love the long hair and hate when characters I like cut it. "I need to make a change. (holding hair)."
"Oh god, no. Don't you fucking dare. Don't you fucki- I'm not kidding here. Don't you fucking do this to me. You've already ruined Senjougahara and Hanekawa. Not this too. Please."
*Girls gasping* "Yura-chan!"
"God dammit... God fucking dammit..."
Is a person's destiny like a cloud moving with an inescapable flow, or can a person choose the flow he wishes?... I still don't know the answer to this. Either way, the destination may be the same in the end. However, by choosing to live like the latter, a person can live and strive towards a goal. I have finally understood those who have that are truly strong. I have but one goal; I want to become stronger... Enough not to lose to anyone. - Neji Hyuuga

Yeah didn't expect that o_o She remembers that staying herself is good, and instead of tying her hair up she decides to get it cut. What? And I can't believe she surrendered...Does she not know what it means to fight until the end? Well at least she learned her lesson and everything's fine in the end.

I really liked this episode. Might have had less moe than the norm but the work into the animation and detail was something I could appreciate.



YURACCHI CLUTCH THE ROUND, IT DONT MATTER IF YOU LOSE



Well, really, there's nothing to lose if you get shot at, all you just do is call out and leave the arena. So just enjoy the game, really! I'm with Sonora on that. Was kinda a lame move on Yuracchi's part, what with her clutching her glock and being overly anxious.

But to be honest I can understand feelings like that. Letting people down because you're afraid of missing their expectations. Still, now with her NEW RESOLVE I'm hoping she soon becomes more action girl like the rest of the C3-bu.

On another note check dis out

Last note. Hope this anime makes airsoft more popular since I'm a fan of it. Then maybe it would be easier to find people to play with.

Even though her new haircut looks cute, I still wish Yura had kept her long hair. :/ Hopefully her character will develop more from here onwards.

The ED is still the same song but DAMN those new visuals are too awesome! *q* Oh, and plenty of nice shots too in new version of the ED, mmhmm! *nods with approval*

Nice episode with Yurarin development and all, but I wish they showed more what each girl is good at.

Also, Hinata (Sniper) did nothing this episode.

The word "Airsoft" was indeed coined in Japan but the usage there is always as "Airsoft Gun" and it always used to describe the gun not the sport. For the sport they call it "Survival Game".

Didn't expect the hair cut.

But if that's what it take for her to stop being a wussy then I'm all for it. Because damn Yura annoyed me this episode.

Glad that Sona lectured her and didn't just let it go.

I think I'm gonna cry. Her hair was so great, so beautiful, and she just...she just...CHOPPED IT ALL OFF. SHE MURDERED IT!

WHY WOULD YOU DO THIS TO ME!?

GROW IT BAAAAAAAAAACK.

(don't tell me I'm taking this too seriously)

I was even thinking throughout the episode how much I loved her hair. It's very simple, but looks so nice.

Oh wow, it’s like playing Soccer and then sit down on the field, because you’re thinking that you aren’t good enough. Not really believable imo. Why surrendering? It’s not like those shots hurt that much, that you must be scared of them.
Even if the shots did not hurt at all, when you are hit you are out, which is the rule of airsoft I believe.
