I've got mixed feelings about this episode. The magical fight was entertaining (and they did use あかいくつ偽) but the rest of the episode was lukewarm. No tension, no atmosphere. At least they started cutting material instead of cramming everything in (which would've made it worse).

Aside from the music choice, I thought the meta battle was well done.

Exactly, suspicion ruins the athmosphere and destroy all the hype i really hate that bgm now thanks to deen, core is 100 times better than suspicion, i missed dread of the grave more fear in that scene is a shame because it was very well done all the discuccion.

I really like the magic fight.

I thought the episode was quite good, after I looked up what they had to cram into it. Yes of course some things were missing and I hope they will be fit into the next episode, but there's no way of telling they won't until we see the preview.

In the end everything that HAD to be in to make it good was in...and I felt quite a lot of atmosphere I must say...only the meta-battle could have used a little bit more tension, but well, maybe we haven't reached that part yet.

When this series is finished, someone should really replace the tracks with the right ones then release it. Get everyone to download that version instead.

I dont like what I saw on the screens, mecha warriors looks awful. But urge to grab pitchfork and torch and burn Deen down is not strong enough yet. I will wait for sub.

About the gold: they do say an ingot is about 10kg, but I'm not sure if it was mentioned in the anime (since I've only watched raws).

Spoiler for Thoughts:


I give this one a six. Here's to hoping next week's episode will be better.

Going by the preview, I knew how much material they would cover in this episode and I knew that something would have to be cut.

Speaking of the animation and Hideyoshi being short. Am I the only one who thinks they make Rosa a bit too short sometimes?

In one scene she was nearly dwarfed by Kyrie... keep in mind that Rosa wears heels and Kyrie doesn't.
Earlier they made Rosa a bit shorter than Shannon.

Not that Rosa can't be short or anything, I just find the heights of the characters to be a little (or VERY) off sometimes. ^^;

Eeehhh, the episode was okay.

I'm neither ecstatic nor disgusted about the episode, but I guess you can say that I'm a little disappointing considering DEEN was doing pretty good up until now. Don't know if I can exactly say it's their fault or anything, but the episode as a whole felt pretty hollow when it was supposed to be one of the most exciting episodes yet. The magic fight was well done, but it flew by in the blink of an eye like Rosa Musou did. That's not a negative hit towards the episode, but it felt like it was over before I even had a chance to soak it in.

More specifically, I'm quite surprised that they decided to omit the Epitaph discussion all together. They replaced it with a lengthy meta-battle, which in turn felt lackluster thanks to DEEN's whoring of the Suspicioni track yet again. So do they hate DoTG or just love Suspicion? I can't tell. Ah well, since Ryukishi's is apparently overlooking the anime, does that mean the discussion itself was unimportant or what? Seems a little strange to me.

And really, what the hell came out of Beato's mouth when she got pierced by the spears? I want someone to look at me with a straight face and tell me that was blood, because it looked like an alien.

Yeah I know what you mean. (Especially about the magic fight. It wasn't badly done, but it was hella fast.)

And that was not blood... I don't know what the heck it was, but when I first saw that scene (and a screenshot on 2ch), I thought "wtf is that? O_o; ". Alien indeed. ._.;

Really disappointed with this episode.

It wasn't horrible like some of Episode 2's episodes, but it was close enough to it.

Don't feel like going on a rant right now, so I'll just say 5/10 for what really should have been much higher if they did it right.

it looked like a sponge to me. XD

how can anime-only watchers solve the epitaph when the scenes look like that. in vn we at least got some clues, but now "omg sweetfish! shore! shore!" and yay she solved it.
and the music used would make the most epic moment boring, why do they cram it everywhere it's possible.

Is it me or did Highschool!Eva's voice actress change When she was first introduced, it seemed more high pitch and cuter...

-No Dread of the Grave-More Fear. My guess is they won't bust out Dread of the Grave-More Rhythm either.
-DEEN is bad at consistent proportions.

I'm crying at this episode's pacing, but in all honesty, it was to be expected. As I may have mentioned, I wanted it to be even faster .

But to all those who think that the anime is an actual "guide" for SN players-Remember Yakusamashi-hen? Who's to say what's happened ism't just the equivalent of "Yeah, your oversight is cool and all, but we'll save that for a filler arc"?

After all, it -is- trying to sell on its own merits and not as an adaptation. My guess is they'll put in more explanations and hints like the Epitaph in an anime-only arc.
