^ It's already been posted in the Spoilers & Speculation thread for light novel readers, and the Speculation & Theories thread for anime-only viewers.

Anyway, very excited about this episode.

So followed original material pretty good, only notable changes were after duel, one added scene and one taken away.

Next week is finally boss fight since second episode.

If they're keeping that in, I have high hopes for the episodes to come.

Why would they take that out? It's a cliche anime thing. Frankly I wish they had taken it out because it doesn't really add anything.
