In terms of vocal work what has Ohara done that is anywhere near Beatrice? I doubt she'll get a better role for the rest of her career, roles like Beatos don't come around to often.

She did get Yuuko(sp?) from xxxHolic.

Please watch where you post and tag your spoilers properly if it's allowed.

Yeah, I loved Ohara as Yuuko (and she was brilliant as Layla Hamilton in Kaleido Star). I doubt those shows were as popular as this one, though.

Virgillia troll face win.

Although I find her VN counterpart to be creepier...she had her eyes open most of the time in the anime, so the impact is kinda lost. But it was still a nice troll face.

Also, Endless Nine ftw. It's one of the things I really looked forward to in EP3.

Overall though...this episode is...not really rushed, but it feels like a crazy roller coaster ride. Too many epic scenes happening at once, and the scenes at the end of the episode didn't leave much of an impression.

I gave this ep a 9/10.

It was good in some parts, at least considering the time frame.
The impact of Virgilia/Eva was dramatically lessened, not to mention the Jessi/Kanon scene.

Since I'm mostly an Ange fan, I had mixed feelings about this episode as a whole. Now the appearance of Ange alone was enough for me to love this episode, but well... although her first appearance itself had quite an impact, the last scene with Bernkastel felt too rushed for me. Of course, yes, there were limitations...but I couldn't help feeling that Ange's situation could be described more intricately.

But because Ange appeared, and overall the pace was good enough, 9/10.

At the end of this episode, there will be a cake and celebration for Battler!!!

Spoiler for Spoilarz:

It's a great episode, although it felt quite rush. 9/10 for me.

PS. I guess many VN players wait for this moment to see how the anime only viewer will react :P.
Fate/Zero: This was the tale of a man who, more than anyone else, believed in his ideals, and was driven to despair by them.

Madoka: This was the tale of magical girls whose wishes are pure and by them are driven to despair.

I expected this to be rushed. But it wasn't rushed; it was well-trimmed! This is a sign of excellent direction.

Drumroll................. 10/10

Great episode.

No man alive would be able to resist Beato in her dere-dere mode. I don't blame Battler for pretty much falling for her during her moe phase. But good god, her trollface was epic!

Normally I don't bother rating episodes or commenting on them(would much rather lurk and watch other people argue and nitpick instead ). This episode though deserves a bunch of priase.

As an anime only viewer I was expecting a few things to happen from the preview(the new characters intro) but other than that I had no real idea what to expect. As such every moment of this episode felt like a roller coaster ride.

The only part that I felt came off a bit worse than it could have was the end, because it felt more like the ride ended with just a simple slowdown->coast->stop instead of having one last kick in it(better BGM probably would have helped the most as others I think have said).

Also as an anime only viewer I can't really comment on how much was dropped, however I can say that
Spoiler for episode 18:

All in all, awesome episode and if they keep this up, they may just convince that the game is indeed worth the hassle.
