Reki spotted again this episode. Why does she have no lines yet?

Hmm, I wasn't impressed by the fight tbh except a few parts when that ninja girl was fighting Raika.

First half, well the fight is abit slow but not that important. Second half is good, new antagonis and akari's secret skill.

Action episode where action is overshadowed by and lazier animated than other things in the episode. Disappointing.

wow really bad slow animation this episode with how the first two flags were grabbed and broken, I didn't know what was happening, and it was done so casually.

This episode lacked proper momentum for most of its scenes when it had a rather good buildup from the previous episode. What happened was cool to see, but how it happened? Not so much. The things that I particularly liked this episode:
- Focus on Riko's lips when she forms a sinister smile. It's rather arousing. lol
- Aria's eye expressions and her serious tone. This is simply a very likable side of her which gives off vibes of a real pro imo.
- Shino's facial expression when Akari broke free of her hug to go to Aria. I genuinely felt bad for Shino...
Basically, nothing related to the action that I expected. I can only assume this episode had some kind of hiccup. I was also surprised to see a rather lengthy recap at the beginning of the episode that I found to be obsolete. As a result it made me lose my patience and I skipped the OP sequence to get to the main part faster.

Now, as for the content at hand. We finally get to see a glimpse at Akari's true potential, whatever it might be. Magnetism? Electricity? At any rate, Aria at least half-witnessed it so she is getting closer to reveal the mystery around her. Like a true Holmes!

Props to Reki for being a silent badass and the true lone wolf. Meanwhile Urara seems to have... a fat ass? I wouldn't be surprised if she saw Akari in a new light now, heh. And Fuuma... is clumsier than I had imag- *remembers the scene where she got bribed by Aria and the scene where she jumped after Kinji into the river* nvm, Fuuma is just Fuuma.

Fuuma is a better fighter than I thought.

And Akari's really not good at this.

Well. Akari really does have that power after all. I'd been leaning towards "just a dream" before.

The action scenes were not great in this episode, and Akari's tactics were abysmal. Charging the bratty ojou the instant she fired her sixth shot would have accomplished a lot more than huddling at a distance.

Did Reki's last shot miss? It looks like she completely failed to knock the thing away, and from what I've heard of her she should have been able to shoot something in some way to somehow accomplish her goal no matter how heavy the object was.

What was this? The season had been relatively fine to watch so far, and here comes this climax(?) and you'd expect even higher quality, right?

Not only was the animation crappy, the story sucked to hell too.
Why? Maybe it should just stick to yandere-yuri stuff instead of... I don't know. I don't even know how everything could be so bad.

Seem like the bullet unable to give the plate sufficient momentum or something?

Maybe she'd shot all the bullets Aria'd paid for?

Not only that, she almost got killed on the spot by Takachiho by being shot in the head! Don't know if Urara's magnum bullets are either blanks or not.

Meanwhile, I'm interested on Akari's electric powers after watching this week's episode. Also, seems that Riko Mine has an ally...

either its just me that the fight between Akari & Urara feels mundane & anti-climatic, like a bunch of senior citizens on their motorized wheelchair attempting at drifting 0.6 k/mph level of intensity, i was expecting a lighting fast speed kung-fu gunfight between them, heck even how Urara reloads is at a slow relaxing pace as Akari never even bother to try take advantage of that

Ostensibly. However, given the force that the ojou's shots were hitting with, her supposedly "fake" bullets would still have killed someone not wearing bulletproof clothing.

Not just you. I was very disappointed in Akari. She could easily have charged in during the reload. Yeah, maybe that was a trap of some sort, but the ojou lacked speed-loaders, and if Akari moved fast enough she could have gotten into range of her own weapon before her enemy properly loaded hers. She'd just have to be alert. The tactics in this were (I guess) meant to hype up the drama, but they fell flat because of how poor they were.

She should have wear a helmet to survive a head-shot. But nope, Akari survived because of plot armor!

And speaking of Akari's fight against Urara, I agree that it was slow and anti-climatic. It would be better if she moved quickly when Urara is reloading and see if that ojou can defend herself while putting magnum bullets onto the chamber one-by-one!

Anyway on a plot related note Akari used a ninja like technique previously and now it seems she can play with lightning.. so is she a Narato styled ninja?

Ninja using magic is not exactly a Naruto thing. Remember the Shinobi games by SEGA?
