how romantic lol. It's fantasy, so it was easy to overlook the fact she struggles with even viewing Saito as a human let alone a love interest, but contemplating marriage to another guy is a little much.

still an awesome show/novel, but the romance died for me with that blush lol
To be fair..
- Louise hasn't met Saito until recently. She knows Waldo from a young age.
- Waldo seems to be the ideal gentleman to her: kind, courteous, a real hero type. She may be in love with the 'ideal' and not the man himself, and this 'love' has been around since their marriage was arranged.
- Saito is slowly breaking that mold as Louise learns about love and what it REALLY feels like.

The episode had the exact opposite effect on me. Being a big Saito/Louise fan, episode 8 and his closeness to Siesta made me squeamish.

I don't care much one way or another about the Saito/Louise romance (I don't like her, but if she's what floats Saito's boat...)

What really pissed me off in that episode was when Louise compared Saito and Ward's hardships and completely dismissed Saito's. Did she ever pause to contemplate all she took from him?

Sure, Saito isn't emo. But that's not a reason to behave as if his hurts counted for nothing.

I completely agree with Anh Minh.So Ward lost his parents,big deal.Saito lost his ENTIRE WORLD!

This episode was a bit boring.Hopefully next episode will be much better.

average ep imo when compared to the previous one...
that waldo fellow is such a loli pedo...sure louise is 16 but she looks like a 12 year old...and he must be something like 30+...would have looked better if louise was more developed but *shiver*
and yep he is definatly evil...in someway -.-

Not so much of a pedo as I thought while reading the comments.

Now that I've watched the ep, it looks as if he wants to marry Louise for her family's power. That's not attraction, but ambition.

DEAMNIT SAITO!!!!!!!!!!!!! GO BACK HOME!!! The episode was ok, now their personal relationship will be explored. Saito needs to train and stop relying on his 5 element so much!

It's the same guy, meaning she's going to have a hard time fighting against the man she's going to get married, and things end with them and pick up with Saito or something. Just random stuff coming out of my head again, don't mind it!!

whatever happens between them from here on out (I already know since I read up to vol.8 lol), she was going to marry another guy.

Welcome to love triangles.

I agree that this ep wasn't as good as a standard ZnT ep, and I'm a bit concerned that the tone has gotten quite a lot more serious, consider ZnT is such a... well, for lack of a better word... awesome series when it doesn't take itself seriously. With that said, it's too early to say for certain that this series can't have a serious side and that it can't pull it off admirably, but I guess only time will tell for certain.

Not that this ep was exactly bad, it did do a good job at highlighting every character's emotions towards this romantic complication. It mightn't have been subtle, but it was, without doubt, clear. Dialogue was a tad tacky, though, but that's never exactly been a strong point of ZnT, so I'm not going to complain too much. The foreshadowing makes the next plot twist too obvious, though... but again (certainly) not a strength of ZnT, so I won't complain. Hell, I'm not watching this anime for the plot. I'm watching for the characters and the tsundere romance. And, it's delivered, even in this ep.

I can't see Louise with Saito at all and I'm hoping (just a little) that she'll marry Waldo. What I'm really hoping for is that ZnT won't turn out like SnS, featuring a tsunderekko who turns too deredere to the point where it gets too cheesy.

I could totally picture Saito with almost every other girl in ZnTverse other than Louise. Maybe I'm mentally trying to stop SnS from happening again, espcially since I like Saito's character a lot more than Yuji. What I really want is some comedy so I could laugh like I did in the first few episodes. (my expectations are obviously too high)

I think for stories setup along the lines of true-love, theres gotta be a better way for creating wangst. Or a better way to handle a love triangle at least. Having some meaningless side character pop up and tempt a main one just cheapens things.

In this episode we walk on walls. I lol'ed.


You can take your pentagon and shove it. I wanna go home and play Nintendo... ;_;

Also wondering how that mage guy could think a plane was a dragon. I mean, duh he doesn't know about technology, but surely he would know something wasn't right. It's certainly a step up from teh "staff of destruction", and the dead pilot would have helped, too. Right, right, could be something else, but whatever.

FIrst let me say Louise having a fiancee did not surprise me in the slightest. Shes a noble and of marrying age. most likely its a marriage arranged by father for political or financial gain, even Louise seems to be smittne with the guy

Second i dont trust that waldo Wuldo whatever the hell his name is. Everthing he says and everything he does is too convient. Im not saying hes a bad guy but theres some stuff hes not saying he has another motive. Plus its obvious hes jealous or treatened by saito

Third Louis seems torn it obvious how she feels about both i think with he finacee shes in love with the knightly image not the man. all she talked about was the knight part of him nothing really personal

Forth Saito gets your ass some training. so you can use any weapon you get your hands with your 5th element. That means jack shit against someone whose well trained. I hope he thinks about this and sees a master swordsmen or at least someone to teach how to control and channel his power more effectivly.

I was hoping that wouldnt pay too much attention to the love aspect but i was wrong. Hey maybe polygamy allowed in this world and he can just have all of them

lol.. polygamy in ZnT that just the last thing I want to see in ZnT

okay sinestra pretty much said what i just wanted to said

It didn't suprise me, kirche got jealous dunno why, also it seems that waldo wants something more than louise, separating them of course to get the gundarf, but now i'm wondering, waldo said "you have something that nobody else have" i think, so they want to catch saito or louise? either way it looks like they want to set her up.

Yeah, th emarriage was arranged by her family. Yeah it does seem that she's kinda torwn between the 2, but it's obvious the intimate feelings are for Saito and the other dude she just admires.
