This was painful to watch.
You are feeling the pain of being hit by the shots? LOL LOL LOL
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.

Even if the shots did not hurt at all, when you are hit you are out, which is the rule of airsoft I believe.

But you're also out if you give up, what she did.

Well, the short haired Yura was alright for the story and I think it's cute. It was already foreshadowed during the start of the OP.

Rin annoyed me with her onesided train track of thoughts; but I totally understand why she's like that. I also get why Sonora was irritated at Yura- for 'letting' the team down.

and omg Yura is so adorable with her haircut- she looks like a little boy- GET YOUR SERIOUS ON, YURA!

Fuck gravity

this scene reminded me so much of the cutscene near the end of mgs2 when solidus has the p90 doing all that matrix shit to the rays. i dont know why


also, is it just me, or does sono look like kamina from ttgl's daughter, even down to the glasses.

same sort of speech too

Honestly, though the "super serial business" is nothing new in sports anime (Saki and Girls und Panzer come to mind here), here in the States, there are those who DO take airsoft that seriously. There are higher organized national events, and some folks who really place a great deal of emphasis on this game. The reactions of Sempai and Hime-cut to Yura's lack of resolve was, in my opinion, very reflective of the more hardcore players (and since Sempai and Hime-cut played in the States...).

For those who know what I'm talking about, think GMR.

Anyway, minus two egregious violations of the game IRL (such as P-90 tan defying gravity or that random guy trying to RIFLE BUTT Sempai, which is 100% not okay in US airsoft at any rate), this ep was pretty good. The haircut at the end was a surprise, but kind of practical; I can't imagine playing any game that requires physical activity with long hair. It seems like a massive hindrance (which doesn't seem to stop half of this club, to be fair).

Don't really get all the fuss about her cutting her hair, I like it .______.

But I quite liked this episode, it was a good way to introduce the rival. Though the weak character thing will hopefully end with this episode, any longer and I debate whether I can finish the entire thing, since Yura is the focus of the show.

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
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".
Yeah, I'm aware of that. I was just responding to your suggestion to adopt the Japanese name into English. Personally I think that with the adoption of "airsoft gun" and the word "airsoft" for the name of the game the English language has already been compromised enough ;)

Think this episode could have been better but it did have it's nice parts.
What i liked most was the rebel look of Rento that red cap the green skirt and the Kalashnikov made her look like a perfect rebel.
Karila looked most like a American styled action hero the Rambo look so to speak.
I also have to say that i prefer girls looking like this instead of the boring maids we always see in anime, besides girls with guns are hot!!

What i disliked was Yura's behaviour towards the end i knew it wasn't going to be as bad as she thought it would but i didn't expect her to forfeit the match.
Wel hopefully she will do better next time.

At least hime-cut kept her hair. Speaking of which what is Shoko Sashinami's VA doing voicing a dangerously hime-cut character anyway? It's like she's suddenly been recast as Saki in another life time. It has me thinking it'd be kind of funny if Tomatoes showed up as yet another happy go lucky bubbly character on another team.

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.
Indeed, it's pretty much like that, even forgetting the gun and running desperately towards the flag would have been better than just giving up. Sonora admonishing Yura is perfectly justified.

On the other hand, Rin going "you don't deserve to play this holy sport" is not only arrogant but immature and selfish, it is still a game, it is not her business, and Yura is not there to make it fun for her.

I wonder if we are supposed to dislike Rin, since she's a rival and all...

FUCK YEAH, MIYUKI SAWA-- ERR, SONORA BEING A BADASS.

As soon as Sonora said what she said to Yura at the end of the last match, I was saying to myself that this show would get dropped if Yura spent more than the next episode moping before realizing she needed to change.

But the fucking show did even better than that. I'm pleasantly surprised and amazed that they took care of her moping AND changing within this one episode.

Indeed, the new ED was better. Even better than the OP, I would say.
Also, I really dislike Yura's new airstyle... I know it's kind of a custom in Japan to repent, but stil, just think about what she could have done with her hair! "It not even her final form!", this line just killed me.
As for this line: "will I be able to shoot properly?" notice for myself: don't take sentences out of the context.
Aaah. This anime really makes me want to try airsoft.

Gainax did fall... very, very hard.

If you think that the same studio did TTGL and now this... I want to cry.
This Anime sucks.

Look at the MP7 from the guy in the beginning of the match? This wasn't a PDW sized weapon anymore, this was a huge LMG!!

Also many other horrible fails (the pigy pack sniper). Well crap show.

And cutting your hair DOESN'T change your personality. Maybe that your hair don't get caught up in a chain saw or something.

Cutting hair in Japan means a new start. She did this so she can show that she was ready to change and to get a new start.

This is why I said she was READY to change. UuU Well I'm not here to argue with you in any way, especially if you don't like the show. I was just trying to clear that up.

Dammit Yura, why are you so goddamn useless? At least try something! It's a game, not war! Rin and Sono may have been harsh, but they were right.

Phew, now I've got that off my chest: at least in the end she got it. Also: dat boyish haircut. XD

I gotta say: I liked this episode. This is exactly what I want to see in a series about Airsoft. :)

I don't even know what to expect next... I just hope someone will at least get physically hurt or something to spice things up.

Err yeah, very high paced episode. I thought the previous episodes were better to be honest.

Aww' that was the worst think you ever did Yura. I thought that you would fight. But I'm glad that she realized it was a bad thing to do.

Lol. The ending is so epic cute ^^ She looks like a boy now :D
I didn't expected that she would cute her hair.

Look we're all aware of Gainax's troubles at this point. If you want the old Gainax it's Trigger and they have an anime coming out this fall called Kill La Kill which looks promising. This and the new Gainax....just is what it is.

I know and I quite looking foreward to the next season already. So far this season is not really my taste beside 2-3 Anime.

Still sad when you look what they done in the past and now.

Yura really needs to calm down in these matches, it's just airsoft. I gotta admit that the real war scenes are pretty funny though. When Yura was alone on the field, I actually hoped she would put her hidden shooting skills, which were hinted at in the last episode, to use for the first time, but I guess this has to wait for awhile.

Meh. . ., I'm kind of disliking this the more I watch it.

I know it's anime, but as an airsofter, this defies pretty much everything I know. There is so much I can say about all of this, it's just too much. . .Not just that, but it's also not exactly that enjoyable to watch, the firefights.

The only thing I still like about this series is the little bit of detail put into the guns.

*after reading everyone's whining about the hair*
omg GET OVER IT

Also, am I the only one who thinks Sonora getting mad at Yura was just stupid. She was going to lose either way based on how she acted in the field. Whether she lost by getting shot or by surrendering didn't matter. Its 1 newbie up against 6 veterans, I highly doubt she would have done any better if she fought.

Oh and is it me or does seem like Sonora and Karila belong in a different anime? Everyone else is fighting normally while they do they're matrix/gun-kata bullshit.

I think you're missing the point.
Everyone in her club is defeated by the enemy, except for Yura.
She was defeated by herself, by fear and frustration.

Yura's lack of spirit of sportsmanship not only hurts her team, but is also insulting to their opponents.

Nooooo Yurarin....your hair was so cute. :'( But lol, nice episode. Still loving those battles. I hope they won't ever get old throughout the show though.

I thought the transition from last episode to this one was a bit weird. Like, they could have mentioned a big tourney last ep. xP
