Wow so Durandal is a descendant of Joan of Arc. Totally digged her true design though.

Nice job by Kinji to Kiss Shirayuki to turn his HM on to save her. That was great teamwork to defeat Durandal.

Like how Aria got to Shirayuki to be a cheerleader. Lol bribe her Kinji's master key to be a friend. Is he going to get sick again after that bail.

So Riko is back next ep/

I wish they would have animate the flame of Shirayuki a little bit more inspired. It looks just plain in this episode.. It seems she finally decides to be brave now.

Grrr... JC Staff, they just have to ruin every single climax fighting scene

Where is the awesome fight between 2 chouteis? And give me back Kinji's Edge Catching single-hand version

Spoiler for Next episode:


Kinda feel like getting punched by Touma

They really did skip a lot in this episode. Nevertheless, a decent episode for the anime only viewers. Plus animation quality does seem to have dropped a bit. I agree with larethian.

So...how far does this"butei must not kill people" thing go? I mean, if they have all these guns and swords and super powers but no matter what they aren't allowed to kill you...that can quickly become a disadvantage, especially if the opponent wasn't outnumbered and couldn't be suppressed.

Its apparently one of those absolute laws, even at the cost of yours or others lives it will never be justified... Yeah, I know how it sounds.

That said, it doesnt mean you cant shoot out both kneecaps...

For people trained in warfare since they were born and with superpowers they are sure dumb...
No, wait, the characters don't have any fault in this. Only the storywriter is an idiot...

Durandal had enough time to get away and tie Shirayuki up in chains? Amazing.

Wait a minute. They know his plan is usually to split them up and take them out one by one. So Kinji decides it's a good idea to split up?

Oh great, now Kinji's spending precious time arguing with Shirayuki. Perfect.

Hot damn, they kissed. Practical AND emotional at the same time. WHY DIDN'T YOU DO THAT BEFORE?!?!?!

WTF? Jeanne D'Arc?!?!?

Wait a minute that voice sounds familiar...HOLY CRAP IT'S SABER!!!

OMG, this is geting awesome now...too bad it's ruined by the fact that they show Kinji and Aira having a convo whilst I hear screams and clashes in the background. It's kind amusing in a way...

Damn Kinji, I'm wondering at what point you'll reveal those Mystic Eyes of Death Perception.

Lol, talking sure is a free action for Shirayuki. She has enough time to scream and incredible long name for an attack whilst D'Arc is in the middle of hers.

OMG, what an absurb waste of ammo. DX

AHAHAHA, It's nice to see a harem lead do practical things like jump out of the window at the first sign of harem trouble. It's a refreshing take.

So yeah overall decent episode.

I really liked this episode... Well mostly like because I haven't read the Light Novels and Manga yet ;D... But nevertheless, The Background music is REALLY ONE OF THE BEST IN THIS SEASON... I even ordered it from CDJapan, it's the first anime I am actually buying its Music CDs, and unlike some guys here, I didn't notice that animation drop though I do agree they should've shown more of The Jeanne vs Shirayuki fight, it would've had rocked even more .
