This episode was pretty good. It still had a lot of Touma preaching, but I'm glad that they managed to pace volume 11 so well and not have any major drops in quality like in the Daihaseisai arc (although Touma's face looked a little off in some frames and I felt that Orsola's boobs were even bigger this week).

Also, Vento and the pope have made their appearance! I'm glad to see that they left in her piercings unlike what they did in the trailer.

Also, just seeing Accelerator and Last Order in the preview makes me hyped up for next week, and I'm really curious as to what the new opening will look like. Again, I hope that this last arc won't have any drops in quality like the Daihaseisai arc did because it certainly deserves the budget.

Agnese, Orsola, and Biagio:

Spoiler for volume 11 la regina del mare adriático :


Epilogue, because it's hilarious:

Spoiler for volume 11 l'inizio nuovo……:


Vento of the Front and the Pope:

Spoiler for volume 11 l'inizio nuovo……:

meh, meaning they're going to waste next episode on the entirely non-plot relevant, easy-to-compress parts of volume 12, uh....

...ah well, i guess mikoto fans wouldn't have been happy if they compressed all of volume 12 into a single episode...

Ironically, the Pope in Index is actually a pretty decent guy (You'll see), the rest of the organization might be 'less-than-pleasant', but this is the first time a fictional religious leader (That is not a girl) turns out to be a good person and not a two-face backstabber like... Well, every other Pope in anime fiction.

The pope from Trinity Blood wasn't a bad guy.

the pope from trinity blood used to be a useless guy up until he finally mustered some resolve after being taken hostage...and shortly after that, got himself killed taking a blow meant for esther...

this pope is a nice guy, too bad he's a leader in name only...

I think I've just been convinced to watch this for next episodes preview alone. Everything else that should occur within the 24 minute time span of this episode will just be icing on the cake for me.

..............................That was a disappointment... Especially how the arc ended.
But hey, let's think positive! It was a whole lot more interesting than the previous arc.
Wakamoto is great (I'm currently playing Xenoblade, so I can't help but enjoy this voice), but he was defeated too easily. Overall, all of the seriousness was a bit lackluster. Also, plenty of odd moments.
Like... Oh sure, the ship doesn't break before (and someone used the novel to explain why), but now it does? Um...? Yeah... And don't try to say "But it might just be that some parts of the ship are breakable!" to explain this, since that is plot device to the max.
Touma's physical ability is as incredible as ever. I wonder if his Imagine Breaker actually has some hidden stat boost...
As always, I don't know when Kanzaki went dere over Touma...
Wakamoto's weapon was kind of lame...
etc.

Anyways, more new characters, but considering all of the new characters so far, I'm not going to get my hopes up.
But I guess there will be a new OP next time? No more NO PANTSU!! and Mayonnaise anymore...

Heres the actual quotes from the novel to anyone wondering "serenade beta"

= u saw the raw right? I dont know what they said but i think if u watch it in sub it explains a bit when he knocks the door, you could see the surprised look.

Though here is a quote from the novels

“Seems like…no one’s around…”
Orsola holds onto the Angel Staff as she looks around.
“This ship feels like it’s imitating the Doge, which is when the governor steps on the ship. It’s a ship that’s used during the National festival of ‘Marriage to the Sea’.”
“Just like a magic ship. This ship controls all the ship functions of the ‘Queen’s Fleet’. It continues to make ice decorations and setups. It’s also a ship that controls and deploys the other ships.”
Hearing Index say this, Kamijou carefully looks around.
“So the nuns won’t be here and the cannons won’t aim here? This ship looks like it can’t be easily repaired by using seawater. If it’s not, there’s no need for so many escort ships around.”

In order to enter the ship, Index reaches her hand out to the nearest door, but even with this, the door won’t open. Looking closely, the keyholes of the doors and the walls are all stuffed with ice. This is basically just like part of the wall.
“Wait a moment; I’ll remove the magic lock…”
Her words are interrupted.
Kamijou steps forward.
“…No need to be so polite. I feel that it’s already too troublesome to worry about all these!!”
With this irritated cry, Kamijou clenches his fist and smashes it into the middle of the door.
BAM!!
The door and even the surrounding wall are blown away. With the place where Kamijou punched, there’s a 3m square hole in the wall.
“Really amazing.”
“That’s because this is different from the escort ships; there’s magic on even the walls and floors.”
The lock and even the other constructs were destroyed as well.
The crumbled entrance reveals an inside similar in appearance to the outside of the ‘Queen of the Adriatic Sea’, like an interior cruise pathway. But the space 3m inside is also cut, eradicated cleanly. Seems like the hit just now wasn’t just limited to a square, but also a cube. There’s even only half of an Angel-figure wall light.
“This is a block structure.”
Index explains clearly,
“This removes the bare minimum required to minimise the damage. So even if it’s Touma’s right hand, it can’t destroy everything in one go.”

^Heh~ Great.
Unfortunately, that's the novel. Just because the novel explained it doesn't mean the anime doesn't need to.

u understand japanese right?

I dont but i think they mention it but not they way the novels did it. I think it was when he punched the wall thinking he'll break it and he had the confused look. If they didn't mention it. thats too bad

Doesn't matter. If it bothers you enough to ask about it on the internet then there shouldn't be a problem getting the answer from us After all this is one way to carry on talks about the series.

If you don't feel the need to ask about it, then it wasn't really a serious issue now is it?

Mmm~ But it does matter. I was mentioning how the anime didn't bother explaining it, if there an explanation (which there seems to be). Therefore, the fact the novel explains it doesn't cover it up.
So the novel explains it. Does that change the fact the anime didn't? No. And now someone explains it to me, and I "understand" now. So the anime not explaining is okay now? No.

And of course it isn't a serious issue. Feeling the need to ask something doesn't necessarily make something a serious issue. Because by that logic, there are sure a lot of serious issues over the net everyday.

Mmmmm....preview....
Oh wait, there was an episode in there:
+Agnese and Orsola scenes were all pretty awesome
+Touma's right hand, stripping nuns since July 20th...
+Bishop was pretty badass and for once Touma doesn't just steamroll everyone
+Relating the plot of this to a plot to destroy Academy City, yay

And we get the return of Agnese's mop, too bad it didn't get much use. I figured she would use its linking ability to somehow reflect the cross weight thing...

As far as the explanation of why his hand can destroy things, "the control center ship is different" is enough for me. Anime doesn't need full explanations when the intended audience has easy access to the source material.
