I was looking forward to this EP from a novel perspective: terrible. But then they tried to mesh pretty much all of Book 2 in this two EPs then throw in a very out of place powerful character who shouldn't be there. I guess Ward keeps his arm too. Poohey.

Not looking forward to the next EP actually. While I liked the novel, I know I'll barely recognize the story.

at last i finally got to see this -.-
well i havent read the novel so i cnt compare but it was pretty obvious that this ep was rushed...too many things happened too quickly...and the fight didnt last long enough
quite disappointed when compared with ep 10...
but i did like the ending where they kissed but even so its not like saito so i guess some parts before the kiss was skipped...7/10

I didn't feel like it was 'rushed,' though I've never read the novels so I'm indifferent to begin with... I thought the episode was great, actually. Wald was too obvious of a villain; if they had made him seem more pure in episode 10 I think there would have been more shock factor, but it isn't that important considering we got to see Saito own him. One thing that annoys me is how Saito is constantly called a commoner/peasant; I know the people in this world don't understand, but still...

One disadvantage - the fight between Saito and Ward. It was slow and poor. Single-hit kill? Meh, he only scratched his arm...

Yeah indeed, was hoping for a lil more in the fight =P but...
other than that, overall, i quite liked the episode, but what it really needs is... more (can't think of another word... just needs more)

Wow, this one was a great episode. It's just a shame that Saito's battle was too quick.

This serie needs a second season.

On this episode being rushed, I'm not sure they have much a choice, given they're trying to squeeze some 2 or so volumes of novel in the last few eps. I've always been of the opinion this series needs more episodes (mostly because it's just so damn fun), but there's clearly not enough to drag it out for a 20-something ep season. Anyway, for a series like this, I'd rather it be rushed than dragged out.

Saito is just impossible not to like in this series. He shows a strength of character I'd really appreciate seeing more often in a male lead in anime. He's, for lack of a better word, just heroic, and he steals the scene almost whenever he's on screen. He probably isn't quite as charasmatic as Hakuoro (who are the two stand-out male leads in action series so far this year), but I'd say they compare as far as respectability is concerned... which really reflects well on Saito, for those who know what Hakuoro is like.

Plot twists continue to be totally predictable. Not that I care, this series isn't supposed to be unpredictable. It is supposed to be fun, and it goes without saying that this episode was. I'm not sure if we've seen the best that this series has to offer. It's probably more likely than not that we have, though. But, I think, as long as it doesn't try to be totally serious and then blow it by failing to be loyal to what it does best (ie, unbridled fun), then I don't see why I should complain too much.

I definitely agree with these points. This episode gave me mixed feelings throughout, and without a doubt we knew how it would end up (well almost). Really kinda speedy, inner plot, conflict, resolution; Sooo Faaasst! The little details that are being introduced are quite interesting though; mainly the void mage lineage, which explains a few things.

I did in fact enjoy the episode, but it really pushes me towards finding the novels and reading them in a language I hardly understand. I know I know, so sad for Siesta, but I'm glad Saito came to a clearer view of his feelings. SaitoXLouise just needed a catalyst to shake things up a notch.
Spoiler:
Nice atmosphere to the show, its a good show, not magnificent, but fun and enjoyable. I can't complain much else since I haven't read the novels, and the characters are all cute.

i hated this episode. rather than trying to fit the novels into 14 episodes, they could have just done a deviation from the story after episode 3 or so.

I'm still behind, and the show has already ended.

Saito and Louise correlation with each other takes a dramatic turn from here, as they are conscious on what they feel for each other.

Given Ward's deception, I think that maybe the Ward Louise knew in her childhood never existed at all; he was a facade to earn her trust and admiration.
The Ward that's aligned with ReConquista is the true one.

Spoiler:


A complain for this episode is that the events leading from Louise's meeting with Wales up to Saito breaking in at the wedding were too sudden and thought the pace sacrificed momentum to enact each characters' actions.
