^Only good thing about the episode.
yeah it was just very I guess typical?
It could be the timing, you're right, but also jokes are also prolonged for just a little too long.
The redeeming factor are the fights though.

Damn, Mitsuki is sexy.

I don't care about the glasses, but the rest of the outfits, expressions, and poses were really nice. And she just gives off this aura of being the hottest thing around, somehow, even just during normal conversation.

So... um... we have this random Sakura girl with her gun/halbard/thing showing up during the shadow attack to try to kill Mirai. Who the hell is she supposed to be, and is she even really there?

I'm guessing she's a friend/relative of the girl Kuriyama killed, it sounded like she was out for revenge anyway.

Sooo... after Akihito and Mirai finished their word war Mirai trudged along and ninja'd a ride on a truck to meet the big bad youmu in some deep remote area where she got ambushed by some random character out for Mirai's blood then big bad youmu used it's funky powers to change the landscape into some yellow abondoned ruins all this time Akihito went home(?) to cook his dinner and was swearing at his microwave oven... then we have Mirai getting her ass handed to her by this angry chainsaw chick then suddenly Akihito tackled her and saved Mirai calling her an idiot!

What?

Probably what we saw was something that happened way before Mirai was fighting, like right away she parted ways with Akihito. Then he said "screw it" and went after her

Well, I liked Episode 3 better than Episode 2 anyway. The BGM has improved considerably. And yeah, I really liked Mitsuki in this episode. She was pretty smexy.

But yeah, MartianMage raised some good points.

Who the heck is this girl with the chainsaw-sword, and why should we care about her? And yeah, I also found it funny how quickly Akihito went from microwaving his dinner to showing up a truck-ride away to save the day.


Still, this was a largely enjoyable episode and a step in the right direction.

No idea. Not like I'm watching it

But anyways enough on that silly matter... yeah Mitsuki is hot. KyoAni is seriously good at that.

This. Times. 10.

I've been drooling ever since I saw her. She just has an aura of sexyness and elegance and at the same time an aura that irradiates respect and reverence.

I love it

Akihito must have embedded a GPS on Mirai, and must also have some type of phenomenal tele-portation device.

But that's not my biggest bug about him. What right does he have to meddle in her affairs, especially after she has asked him not to. And don't give me that "because she used him as a pincushion" reason. He's a stalker, as well as being a pervert. I liked his character enough in the first episode, but he's turned into a very annoyingly persistent "I'm Right and You're Wrong" character.

Yeah, those are definitely some good questions. Even if the girl is some family member of that girl Mirai was forced to kill in the flashback, just... showing up like this without any previous appearances or foreshadowing or whatever seems... Well, it makes viewers react the way we have: by asking "who the heck is this?"

I was shocked that Akihito went back to microwave his dinner at all. I was thinking "dude, your resolve is that weak?" He'd already gone there knowing that she intended to go on a suicidal attack against the shadow, and that she'd killed that girl when it was possessed by the shadow in the past. Being told a flashback about it and that she found his help unpleasant was enough to make him give up on trying to save her from herself? Maybe it wasn't his business anyway, but if he'd resolved to help her he should have bloody well been prepared to put up with a little verbal unpleasantness from her, and been ready to tell her why she was wrong.

Don't know how he could have gotten there that fast, though. I don't know why he bothered leaving in the middle. As far as I'm concerned, that scene with him at home making dinner was compeltely out-of-place.

It depends on your definition of moe. For me personally, Mirai is far more moe, but Mitsuki is far more attractive in terms of pure sexiness.

She stalked him, now he's stalked her, fair is fair. More seriously, she's in a depressive state of mind. "I don't deserve to have a happy life because I'm a bad person." You don't simplly walk away from someone who is thinking like that, or you are likely to find their name in the obituaries with "suicide" listed as cause of death. She needs help, whether she wants to admit it or not, and so he's sticking around to try to help her.
