When Touma's class was lined up with that fire aura, I was yelling, "THIS IS SPARTA!!" xD

Overall it was a good episode, but I also feel it was missing something. This is probably a negative effect to the fact THEY CUT OUT THE ONLY JOKE ALEISTER EVER MADE!!!

That aside, I also noticed that the whole episode emphasized the size of Fukiyose breasts a lot.

Regarding the seiyuu's, Fujimura Ayumi for Fukiyose was a surprise. I am not sure if the voice match the character, but I am willing to hold up any judgements and wait to see. I am really pleased they went Yuzuki Ryouka for Oriana, if nothing else just because that playful and yet adult-like way of speaking really reminds me of Arcueid from Tsukihime.

On another note, it is just me or the girl that bumped behind Touma when he was talking to Fukiyose near the end seemed strangely familiar (both looks and voice)?

we all know it sucks that they make it feel rushed but its only because we have to consider the show has limited time and episodes.

Spoiler for Ep 8:


All in all, it's quite a good episode, but as usual, time constraints leads to some scenes being cut and very fast pace, which deters the enjoyment a bit. I'm kinda torn - in one hand, I want to see more volume animated, yet at another it's really a change compared to the first season. Oh, and btw, yet another female opponent for Touma with Oriana. Seriously, only guy he fought so far is that crossbow guy (if that counts as enemy) and that Amakusa leader guy, who isn't an enemy in the end. The rest, all girls.

I shouldn't be surprised anymore that the little trivia stuff were cut out of the episode, but it still hurts for some reason

Mah... I guess that's why we have the quote thread... Just try to avoid throwing in large chunks of passage at a time please guys ? It's a 'quote' thread after all.

Oh and needless to say, as (one of) the new girl Fukiyose stole the show for me She's just as awesome for being the only girl who could resist the Kamijou disease despite multiple 'advances'.

That said though, I though Index was particularly cute this episode, much of this credit was due to her VA

Yes in fact this entire season will feature mostly female enemies... And each of them getting their healthy servings of just desserts. And lets just say that if Touma's bad, Accelerator is utterly brutal.

Though I probably shouldn't expect much from this anime, I wish there was more combat. The encounter with the courier at the end was interesting, but everything else was actually pretty slow for me. The activities would have been more interesting if Touma participated with a more analytical mindset(i.e. included more of the pole assault battle). In conversation, I want Touma v Kuroko, Touma v Accelerator, Accelerator v Mikoto, Parents v Mikoto/Touma talks.

It's a pity that it wasn't shown. This would probably be one of the few times that many espers would duke it out in a fight.

Unless someone started a food fight or something... You know... Just saying... >.>

Poor mikoto being eclipsed this episode. I love the new character Fukiyose Seiri which Fujiwara Ayumi voices (which reminds me much of adorable kiachou) and the fact that she isn't affected to Touma's charms. I APPROVE. + she delivers the Falcon Punch of the week.

Index is now elevated from just biting Touma last volume to wearing a cheer outfit. She must have a VERY interesting life.

Uiharu keeps appearing but it looks like Saten's never gonna be there .

Hey, which one do you think is the better translation of リドヴィア=ロレンツェティ? Ridovia or Lidvia Lorenzetti?

Plus, new seiyuu!

LOL so that's why she sounded so familiar I couldn't put my finger on it until you said that

So they got a student president to play the class representative for this series Which could explain why she doesn't fall for 'Touma' heh.

Meh... Just a whole bunch of fanservice, this episode.
Though I liked the Mikoto x Touma, and Inplant-san x Touma moments.

There was some new black-haired girl, but not much focus or anything and pretty much just "Eh?" from me.

PS: Musashi no Milk again... That's why those bre-

Either way, she'll be playing that type of character again And I'm all for VA jokes, so lets bring Accelerator in on this ...Somehow.
