Second season episode 8 was well crafted. Animation was good some cost cutting scenes but that episode was crafted so well I am impressed. " to the princess who knew about earth." The build up to that was great. Appreciate the little things setting that up. Now our double agent knows the truth for sure.

Episode 8 kinda confused me a bit. Not sure why the Blue Squares are doing what their doing. Can almost understand drafting him as leader but the rest the only motive I can think of is revenge. Also notice how their is a Loki vs Thori kind of thing going on with Izaya Orihara an Shizuo Heiwajima.

21 may have been more comedy among the tragedy . But it did show us a few things one thats important is Roe 2 does have connections to the Devil with Glasses,or may have at the least. The second thing it shows me is that if it gets a 3rd season it may not end with every one going home. The world build here seems to be more about the change in that world more than going back to their own.

The despair those knights feel is a reminder they cant go home. Tho overall that is building up we still have more an more world build story on this world. I hope it goes to a season 3.

Episode 7 was the boiled down version of the OVA. The Ova was a half hour an it did a better set up for the story better than this series did . Then again the OVA came out in 2013 an just used 5 minutes to get the story rolling. So 30 minutes with no commercials would be more material than one of the series episodes to.

@takashichea: Thing about anime it surprises me more so than regular network tv. Episode 20 had a part in it that kind of surprised me. You will see when you get to it. As it was set up in that episodes story. The surprise was they pulled the trigger on the set up with the fore shadowing flawlessly set in place. After you see that episode an think back on it you probably will see the markers for what happened.

8 left me more confused. Ok the world build back story was great. But the stuff at the end. I understand the doves are staking out the shop but why would the other ghouls attack that shop? Motive. Just need a clear motive an have heard of none atm.

@takashichea: Yeah all the flags were there for it. Extra camera time. Wishing for him . The happy ending option. Out of place villain with a out of place hero showing up. it all kind of adds up. Odds were she would perish before the hero reborn sub arc would finish. But this is anime an wild cards are dealt more often than we think.

Oh the head fake with the fathers love interest maybe dieing because of a horror I did give that as a option. A double tragedy would have fit the over all story of the knights. But it was the not this one but that one option the story went with.

Not sure if I ever had a hawks sight. Some friends would claim I hada crows, an a want for a ravens sight. My eye sight actually is getting bad an need new glasses hopefully soon. Dam snow preventing that atm. Then maybe can get back to drawing things other than story plot conclusions.

Episode 8 really made me compare this series to High School DxD. Kinda similar but with the characters scrambled up a bit. Um is not his powers to negate magic an become a harem master before graduating high school?

@taichokage: I thought the 1st 4 or 5 were almost perfect with the manga in pace. Around when Growther came into the show it deviated some . Not sure why they are trying to cram so much in that they lose so much as well. See this in anime a bit . hurry up then have to use filler. Just does not make sense to me at all.

@takashichea: The flow of time aspect needed a clock or timer in the corner. something to clue people in on the flashback an times flow. Been watching Arrow tv show an its big on flashbacks an some times the jump from main story to flash back happens to fast an the flow of time is lost as well. Just a simple 5 years ago in the corner or something would fix it.

8 had the required beach episode with a "bitch suit". Usual high jinx for a beach episode. But this feels now like its 4 or 5 other harem animes rolled into one. A lot of deja vu in this episode for me.

7 had an punch line of " Time to die". It has some scenes that will be screen caped for sure. One in the theater for sure.

@takashichea: Yeah it does not get its grove on till 5 on. 1-4 seemed jumbled. the spell casting writing is ok , it just looks slow animated. Cast time has always been a fantasy rpg thing. Other than animation drops an past life get out of death card flash backs gripe we share, its a ok series.

19 reminded me how much I love this series. From its style to over powered epic tale of betrayal . Oh an before any one goes on about Harlequin is supposed to be a female name , it is actually correct for male. Female court jester with the diamond pattern like that would be Hellequin. Some confusion on the gender naming may because of Harley Quinn . Also its use here with King makes me think the creator of the manga knew something about Warhammer 40k an Warhammer fantasy. To which some of the knights remind me much of the style of Warhammer fantasy.

It kind of feels like they shorted that flashback story. We do have a plot hole to of how Helbram lived threw the other death as well. Still enjoyed the episode alot.

7 was good. Very when plans go awry type of episode.

@Wraith: I agree don't think this is going to be black or white type of story. Its got shades of gray already in the character motives.

@takashichea: @EvilMegaCookie: Not sure how many myths an legends an faiths will creep in. To many an it becomes a distraction. Done right tho it adds a flare to the story. Last one I read like that was in The Sandman graphic novels. With a drunk Thor trying to get Bastet to rub his hammer to make it grow.

20 an all of its nudity censor kinda reminded me how odd this is as a Sunrise production. I mean it felt more like a Gonzo anime in many ways.

@takashichea: If you think about it their has been a whole lot of torture in this series.

@takashichea: @Supreme Marvel: After watching 18 I had a thought that maybe these long form rules teachings of how things work is not just for filler. Maybe its also to fish for a video game? The world it self would fit in a action rpg easy enuff.

2nd season episode 7 or full 18 as some sites are calling it. Not a ton of action but build up of a split on the martian side. It strikes me how this series drew me in much better than Gundam Reconguista in G. I understand who an whys here much better. It does the space opera bit with more connections to the characters emotions an motivations. Tho I feel this will become a 3 sided war as well , at least it world built in a way thats easy for me to grasp an still feel depth in the world.

After watching episode 7 we kinda get a better understanding of one of the new characters. Its a two step forward one step back kind of story telling. Also the end credits any one else think its a long scroll of characters relation to one another?
