I got a kick out of how Natalia managed to one-shot Sync.

Ladies and gentlemen, I give you the animation drop.

Really, I'm not picky. I even watched all of The Violinist of Hameln without cringing at the uneven animation, I should be able to stand this episode. But, noooo. I'm just looking at the character designs (did Sunrise forget how to draw males?), ugly, ugly, ugly.

I couldn't have cared less if it was another episode, but why Peony's?! I've been looking forward to him and his crazy rappigs since episode one when they showed his shadowed self - and then they go and ruin it. *sigh*

Better luck next episode, then. Hopefully the character designs won't look so god-awful ugly next time around.

I didn't really see much of a quality drop in this episode and I'm really sensitive to this sorta thing. I didn't really think sunrise's animation was really good in the first place mostly due to unfair comparisons I've been making to I.G's cutscenes in the game. I don't think the show is all that poorly animated though it certainly isn't off putting in any way.

Agreed! Tear/Luke FTW!

For this episode: Peony+ Rappigs= 8/10 episode. I guess it doesn't take much to please this viewer.

Decent episode and we finally get to see the eccentric behavior of Peony I was quite shocked to see all those Rappigs running around his room. But as a result we got more Tear goodness with her "so cute" phrase and i died laughing when she was about to touch one and jumped back when she thought someone was going to see her lol. But we got a sense of how close war is between the two the countries even to the point where the council wont even send aid to help the villagers. But with some convincing words from Luke ( I couldnt believe it myself) our heros were allowed to go to the village to help.

Tear and Luke's conversation after the Guy incendent was nice. I think we got another chance to see how close they are getting and we also saw Tear living up to her promise to watch Luke. However, her advice was a little blunt and Luke told her so I think the fact these two can speak this way to one another shows how close they are getting. Whats even more surprising is Tear was amazed at her bluntness which made her even cuter. But what summed things up for me was the long stare and pause between Luke and Tear with Miwu looking back and forth.

Guy's past has been reveled holy crap hes a noble i didnt expect that one and i didnt expect the one who killed his family was Duke Fabre. So he went there initially to see revenge. But we still have not been informed on why hes so scared of women. I guess that will come in time along with other things.

Natalia had a nice one hit Sync too bad it only hit his shoulder i would have preferred his throat i find Sync incrediably annoying. We havent see Van in a while i wonder what the wilily old fox is up too and its been a min since we seen Asch too.

The animation drop was not even that bad it was barely noticeable not sure where the hate is coming from.

Episode 13 war finally breaks out.

Natalia's one-shot of Sync is quite avatar-worthy.

I'd equate his embarrassment to that of any boss on the receiving end of a

After she shot the arrow my mind started to go that place where replace all the characters line with what you want.

I started thinking Natalia should have said "Fon Slot this bitch" followed by two arrows pinning him to a tree leaving him dangling there while the others played a nice rousing game of Sync pinata. Im not sure why he bothers me so much but i cant stand him.

sorry guys i just had to get that one out.

Poor Sync, why this hate? ;_;

I'm so glad Natalia finally got to show she's not supposed to be a damsel in distress *glares at Sunrise for making her appear so in the beginning*

I love "cute little Jade" and his friends, they're so adorable <3

The episode was great, and I really liked the flashback part of Guy. But the animation drop on Guy was not good... A few shots made me cringe, hopefully they do better next week.

Forget about all, Peony is love. I saw some pictures with the "blond-cute-men" before with Jade, but I never, IN ALL MY DREAMS, realized that the man playing with pigs was Peony. i'm in love,I need a Peony figure ._.

But, It's just and nescessary to say that Tears scenes trying to play with cute things are the best XD
