Episode 17: Oh Vatler. I think he's slowly becoming my favorite character in the series. Well, he did allow the Prison Barrier to be activated, but at least he's responsible enough to dispose of the mess he made. But man, that tragic diva was close to being familiar chow in the hands of Vatler—she's probably thankful that the Prison Barrier's system is still working or else she'd be in a whole lot of pain, at least.

And now, he's luring the flies to his nest for his own banquet. That's nice of him.

Episode 18: Yuuma escapes, Asagi officially becomes caught in the mess, and four of the inmates have been disposed of. Seeing Asagi left unfamiliar with everything about Kojou is a bit saddening, considering that she has the powers to control and watch over the Demon District, something that had helped Kojou in more than one occasion. Then suddenly, Yukina gets a front-seat pass to Aya Tokoyogi's plans as she becomes a valuable piece to her plans. Was it Sekkarou, Yukina or both that this witch wants?

Episode 19: Yukina gets a Mirai Kuriyama moment (lol seiyuu joke), and that bastard Kojou gets a threesome with Yuuma and Sayaka. Well, at least he got a new vampiric aspect unlocked after summoning his Fourth Familiar. Meanwhile, Aya reveals that she wants to rewrite the world out of scorn to those who mistreated them (I guess throughout history). I don't buy it, but that Five-Minute Hypothesis seems interesting. Anyway, the fight between Kojou and Aya felt anticlimactic, but I guess she just can't fight a vampire, a nullifier and a greater witch even with her powers.

And in all of this, one person remains, the failed Attack Mage, Meiya Itogami.
By the way, who the heck is the Paper Noise girl talking to Yase earlier?

Episode 20: Finally reached the latest episode. And I don't understand why people question Asagi's actions.

Quote:
It doesn't need an explanation. If it's danger, you don't risk your life over a less than $20 pair of earrings or any dollar amount of jewelry.
First of all, she's the only one who don't know about Kou Amatsuka and his business with the Adelard Monastery. Even the MIMC Archives don't have intel about the alchemist, so she doesn't know the level of danger involved. Take note that Itogami City has been bombarded with all kinds of threats, so it's hard to tell if it's a high-level threat or a simple case of pilferage.
Second, the earrings were given to her by Kojou on her birthday. We all know that birthday gifts given by someone, especially a special person, are considered special, and jewelry or anything worn is considered doubly special. She was simply unfortunate to have crossed paths with Kou as he was doing his thing.
Third, she is special. During the From the Warlord's Domain Arc, her eyes turned blood-red as she was analyzing the code derived from the Nalakuvera. There should also be a reason for her exceptional talent in hacking based on this.

My speculation is that she's also given the Hard Core that Kou had destroyed from that guy earlier. That was the pebble-like stone Asagi was reaching to before passing out, and it was dislodged from her body after the attack.

I wonder if next episode would make Kanon a bit more relevant than just a beyond-human being targeted by Kou as a possible sacrifice.

I can understand why Asagi didn't take his warnings seriously.

If Koujo for example revealed to Asagi earlier that he was the fourth progenitor and at a later date told her that an area was dangerous or not to follow him somewhere like to the church in the first place. Asagi would have backed off.

Keep in mind the Asagi believes him to be a normal human and she herself is the premiere hacker on the island.

If I'm not wrong Paper Noise is a high ranking member of the Lion King Organisation.

She's the third leader of Lion King Organization - in charge for ordering Yukina's mission, if I recall right ... my friend told me that her name's Koyomi Shizuka

Ah, so that's why Meiga (correcting myself) was talking to her about that weapon he stole from the museum.
Wait, she's the partially occluded girl wearing miko's clothes early into the series?

Given that there voices match, and its shown her with Vatler at the end of the warlords arc handing out the ambassador position to him, and talking with Yaze via shikigami at the end of the first arc about assigning Yukina as Kojou's observer, most likely.

It's only an earring. He obviously was willing to buy her another pair and more if she left the area. So, it should have been taken by her to be pretty serious. She just had an "idiot moment" imo to progress the plot.

If there's an idiot, that's Kojou for being dense for Asagi's feelings for him.
There's a reason why she refuses to leave that birthday gift behind and it's because Kojou gave it to her.

Yes, and he clearly told her he'd buy her another pair. She was being stupid. If the guy you care about is telling you to gtfo , you show a little trust and faith and get gtfo.

have to agree with this, espicially considering the trouble she got mixed up in the previous arc. Well, its understandable why she was attached to them, but it was still a dumb moment.

Stupid or not, let's leave it to Kojou if he still wants to leave Asagi out of his vampire business.

Um I would like to point out it was less then 2 minutes between Kojou telling her to get away from there and her getting caught up in the fight. Also he never told her the place was actually dangerous. It's not like she knew the place was dangerous before she went there. The only dumb thing was not running the second she saw the blood, but again it would have been too late anyway.

The dumb thing was running back to a wooded area to look for a lost item and expecting a guy to come and help you.

A. The item could have been taken by an animal in the area.
B. It's too small to find.
C. It's cheaper (in time spent wasted in the activity) to buy another pair of earrings.

What we have here is Asagi projecting too much significance on a pair of earrings that Kojou did not place. In fact, he spelled out his views on those earrings. She really needs to take the hint.

why the flying fck cant people just listen when someone says run the fck out of that place????

she was so near to the church yet she did not even hear the sound of an agonising old man, the laughing sound of a maniac. Then even the big kaboom cant make her just fcking run from that place. It is like telling a child stop fcking play with knife yet they keep fcking doing it. So frustrating

Again, I have to point that Asagi likes Kojou and our dense mofo is unable to take hints about this either.

My god, this sounds like nitpicking on Asagi's actions. Do you guys hate her?

Again she went back because no one ever told her the area was dangerous at that time the last time before this ep that she was there was looking for Kojou who was helping to feed some cats. She wasn't obsessively looking for the earing . She had just got there when she called. The call lasted for maybe 5 minutes durring which she still wasn't let in as to how dangerous it was and was heading back to the path to leave when the Wiseman s blood atacked by that point it was to late.

So we're in the final arc of Strike the Blood, at least for this season, and while I doubt that anything will really get conclusively resolved plotwise, I hope, at least, that the there are some advances for the shows overall plot and romance(s), though I have little doubt that the current arc will be as entertaining as what's come before .

Well, that was pretty forward of Kanon to ask Kojou to come into the lingerie store. I guess you shouldn't underestimate the innocent ones .

Though with how she and Kensei are factoring into the plot, I wonder if this will bring La Folia back into the fray?

It was quite interesting meeting Yukina's teacher, if only indirectly, and seeing how she "penalizes" people. I don't quite get how much of a penalty it is, considering it's not actually Sayaka herself but a shikigami. Though I guess Sayaka would rather not have people constantly seeing her in a maid outfit when they visit that area, and likely keep the image in their minds for when they next see her. Still, maid Sayaka .

I thought there were some really hilarious moments in this episode, from Natsuki's lines to Kojou and Asagi, to Kojou misreading where Yukina was taking him. Especially the former though .

I'm willing to cut Asagi a little slack for what happened at the end of the episode. She had no idea about the level of threat that was around her, and Kojou didn't really explain it either, and without a reason to fear for her life she freely prioritized something that, while replaceable, holds a lot of sentimental value to her. By the time Kojou told her to get out of there, it was just too late .

I'm less shocked in Asagi "dying" and more interested to see how exactly she's ultimately going to survive this. I can see her somehow gaining Wiseman's Blood and becoming immortal. And if that were to happen, I can definitely see her finally learning Kojou's secret and getting the chance to unlock a Familiar .

So it looks like Yukina is, despite the threat of Amakusa, still going on her class trip. I'm as surprised to see them in their winter uniforms as I am to see Yukina and Nagisa apparently sharing a Pocky .
