10/10 OMG what to say this ep had action and after the action i lold so much. OMG the girls reaction at the end was hilarious(especially houkis). The story wise i still don't get how she just likes him out of nowhere but it was overshadowed by my other reasons to like.

Judging by your sig I'm guessing theres a reason you bolded those words?

1. Ichika's an 'Unfortunate' man.

2. He defeated her in mortal combat, hence the Laws of the Amazon-German women states that she must marry him!

3. She's a Vampire Ninja, and that kissing one of them equals a marriage contract- Signed, sealed and delivered.

4. All of the above... And then some.

oh, you're definitely not alone. That's basically the same line of thought of 2ch and 2chan.

anyways, 10/10 for great action, Laura, badass Laura, nekkid Laura, Laura's backstory, nekkid Laura, cute Laura, nekkid Laura, kiss-stealer Laura, nekk-... oh well, guess I rendered the idea.

It's just that after all this kiddy-ing around, it's incredibly gratifying to see ONE girl having the guts to just "go for it". In doing so, Laura has been doing the show some tremendous favor.

She's attractive with, and a stunner without.

I never thought that Laura would be the one to play the 'girlish' games that Cecilia, Houki, and Rin are so of course, she's already planning on using 'whatever means nessacary' to 'aquire' her 'target'. Doujins are churning out as we speak lol

And Chifuyu hasn't changed at all from when she was younger - she just got...'bigger' lol Not that I mind at all. XD Schoolgirl uniform - long skirt version!!

*eagerly awaiting next week* Chifu-nee in a bikini - I BETTAH GET MAH SERVICE!!

You forgot to mention the most important part, when she doesn't have clothes on

Man It's so rare that i give an anime episode a 10 these days but this episode was balanced and of course the clichés were still in the episode but they were well executed, Charlotte stole the show again and she got more development between her and ichika,
Spoiler:

The fight were well made nothing wrong with that, the animation was superb as always.

Okay, maybe it's the translation, but can someone help explain to me Laura's behavior? The way I see it, it goes like this:
Laura: My savior dares shows a dere face!? RAGE RAGE RAGE. Then she lost, so she freaks out and unleashes that...Valkyrie Trace thing, which Ichika again defeats. After reminiscing, she woke up to see Chifuyu, which tells her to what I guess to forget the past and live for the future, and to be herself and not trying to be her. I'm not 100% sure why she's laughing after that, but I can still follow. But how that being herself --> promptly kissing someone and declares him to be her waifu, the person who just hours before she hates with all her might?

I mean, I'm not complaining, and out of all them she's the most likely to do something impulsive like that, it's just considering their history it'd make more sense for the others to do it first...well, at least the competition is heating up now, what's with Charlotte gender revealed as well.

Another complaint from me is that Houki went down WAY too easily. Yes, I know she's the least talented IS user out of the other three, especially Laura, and they need to focus on her more. But yeah...a few slashes here and there, but apart from that she's just fodder.

Oh, and while Houki did something useful this episode, and Laura scored major points, I'm still in Charlotte camp. Seriously, they're perfect together, both in battle and outside. The part where she's in bath and saying Ichika no Ecchi again doesn't hurt either. Speaking of which, her seiyuu Hanazawa Kana celebrates her birthday today, congrats and continue the good work (where is Kanon ?)

This episode was made of pure win ! Loved the Charlotte and Ichika in the bath. I wonder how she reacted when Laura kissed Ichika though...

I thought the most interesting part was the blade materializing, which reminded me so much of Shaman King. I totally went OVERSOUL in my head.

A little more screen time for Houki's better than nothing I suppose. Gotta LOVE Charlotte destroying Laura for that couple of seconds though.

Great episode of IS. xDD

The battle was great, Charlotte being all kick ass. Houki went down fast, she didn't even stand a chance. :I

Anyway, absolutely loved the Ichika x Charlotte bath scene, more points to France! O:< -waves flag- Only thing that makes me sad is that now Charlotte will have to move out of the room she shares with Ichika. If I were her, I'd keep my real gender a secret for a lil while longer...you know, to keep on scoring more point on Ichika. Because let's face it, being in the same room as the guy you like is a very nice advantage. xD And then when I´d finally get the guy, ONLY THEN would I reveal my true gender. :P

Can't wait for next week.

Yeah, I'm in Europe too, and it's 1 AM right now...I really should go to sleep. Guess I'll see him fanboying over Charlotte tomorrow . But seriously, even her IS ability is awesome, second only to Germany perhaps. I wonder how many wonderful pics we'll get of her for the the next beach episode?

I liked the ep, Laura was my favorite from reading spoilers before the show aired so I'm happy that I finally got to see her steal her kiss.

Btw, if you guys weren't awared, the difference between a personal IS and a mass production one is HUGE (that's what she said). Houki was using a shitty IS, which didn't really allow her to be at max potential.
