Harutora just became a badass in this latest episode.

18 had a few plot twists that may turn full haremish . Good stuff. Once the series got over a bit of bad cgi its animation an illustration style improved vastly.

19 well I can see odds are where this is heading . Harutora Tsuchimikado is the one they are looking for not Natsume Tsuchimikado . So this will change things up some .

That girl thinks it's Natsume when in fact it is obviously Harutora, and it seems that they have all kind of made up, although it was expected of them to declare war on each other, although why wasn't Suzuka apart of that declaration.

seriously Suzuka is the best and the right choice in my opinion

On episode 4. Don't mind me everyone. I'll catch up or not.

I think I enjoy this series. It's not on my hot list, shows I need to watch every week and cannot stall.

I bet this scene occurs in any anime.

Edit:

Let me try putting a GIF.

@takashichea: I think its a anime you will like more an more as it progresses. Its got alot of deep subplots tho. Some were kind of hard for me to follow actualy so the surprises were touch flat . But its a good series over all an really does improve its use of cgi as the series goes forward.

Yo did Natsume really just die? holy sh*t this episode was crazy, but I didn't expect main heroine to die, hopefully she is revived or something.

@LHWKnight: Not sure. Episode 20 had a heart string puller for sure just not sure if its a cliffhanger or not. my guess would be its a almost death clifhanger. But this is anime an well they do things like this. Which is what makes anime enjoyable for me. The unexpected happens.

So Natsume is confirmed dead and Harutora has finally snapped. Poor Shizuka looked terrified when he begged her to show him the ritual she tried to use to bring her brother back.

Haru has now been taken into the Agency and the others are planing to try and get him out.it

Also Sensei will be launching his own assault on the agency with the help of that old dude.

@LHWKnight: Not wanting to pridict to far but she will be back among the living . Think back on the ritual an why it failed the other time. An if they dont bring her back this would be a big plot twist rarely seen in most entertainment. Im good with the show either way. Shes a nice character but the plot twist of killing of the main love intrest is so rarely done right.

21 had a good pace but felt like it was longer than it was to me. Alot of sceen changes. Also the hummers stuck out as cgi so its hit or miss who does the ink overs on those to make them look more in style.

The level of cool in 22 was pretty good. Kon played a key role. Im a sucker for a comedic styled character playing a key role seriously tho. Again another anime with referances to WW2 an magic. its a trope unto it self now.

Thank god Kon talked some sense into that idiot Harutora, I thought I was going to loose what little respect for him I have left.

Kon FTMFW

Episode 23

Epic! Simply awsome. Heck it almost felt like a movie with a strong music score to. Tons of stuff from before now makes sence. This episode shot the anime way up my list of cant wait to see whats next. From great dipiction of alternate worlds to a Mission Impossable feel with magic on layered perspectives . Depending how it finishes out this is heading to my buy list as well.

Even like how they all called him stupid .

I caught up some episodes. For some odd reason, I thought Natsume was a guy, and I thought it was a girl. During the hotel episode, I saw Natsume undress. Her body looks androgynous, so that's why I thought it was a guy.

So far the series has a comedical beginning. Haven't seen anything serious after the first episode. The old going to school after episode 1 is a overly used cliche in anime. I seen in Blue Exorcist, Guilty Crown, Magical Warfare, etc.

Such a nice ending to one of my favorite anime from the last season.

I can now look at Hishamaru as an adult whose tail I wish to stoke all day long... that sounded dirty lmao.

anyway I really hope that they give this a season two.

24 was great. They used every bit of the budget they had left an it showed. Some parts had a bit of quality drop in illustration style but others were movie quality.

@LHWKnight: Some sites are saying theirs one more episode. It should get a second season some time . An did you dig that whole Odin vibe at the end ?

@takashichea: This is a odd ploted anime. Its shonen like but has the school magic school dynamic but goes way beyond that. At times it has moments that are as good as any sceen from Holllywood big budget movie. An some tiems its bad as any sceen from a Hollywood big budget movie. Its one of those anime where as the characters grow they change physicaly as well.

It makes my list easy enuff now. An its one i would consider to get on blueray at some point.

@Marshal Victory: and Odin vibe, yeah

I still need to finish the series. I don't think I'm halfway there.
