Nope. From how Sora originally said it (tsuika) it should mean 'in addition' to the previous chip. Probably there's some cut contents in there somewhere. The warbeasts probably made an exactly same counter-offer with no panties of Izuna included, which Sora agreed to. Shame on him!

The warbeast's golden age is supposed to have started since 50 years ago, and like Anh_Minh said, we don't have that kind of tech either then. And the warbeast ruler certainly doesn't look like she's a 50 years old granny.

Im almost certain she will be the trump card this time. This will show her how much she actually means to them too.

Nah. We've seen the OP and enough of the series to know she's the golden fox girl. Horo was a wolf deity. Bot have their respective animal's ears and tails, yes, but completely different connotations in Japanese. If you want a reference, the whole Eastern Federation is a reference to the same thing Horo was, kemonomimi (lit. "animal ear").

Don't you just love it when the anime stays absolutely faithful to its source? I know I do.

I don't think I need to go into an in-depth discussion about the episode. It gets a perfect 10. Nuff said.

And this episode solidifies why I like Kurami.

Also, Jibril is totally an M. Though did anyone else notice that her halo became a question mark when she was wondering why Fi doesn't like her so much?

It's fun to see people speculating about something that wasn't supposed to be speculated upon.

fun fact: the chapter was supposed to end after kurumi caught sora of guard, anything onward is just the beginning of the next chapter.

It's not completely illogical. They're not afraid of "outside," they're afraid of "the real world." It's the world they felt betrayed by, and it's a world that is not bound by rules they can understand or accept (and exploit). Disboard is really just one big game world that is governed by corresponding rules, so they don't feel out of place there, even outside and in front of crowds.

By the way, do you see anything redeeming about the show? Popular opinion is never a good indicator of quality, but it's almost always an indicator of something. I think a reviewer should always be objective, and I'm worried confirmation bias based on your initial impressions is creeping up on you.

He's stuck with this show for this long just to vote 1 on all the polls and criticize it with one-line remarks at various opportunities. I don't think he should be taken seriously.

okay so the elves culture is similar to that of the ancient Greeks, while the warebeast are more like ancient feudal Japanese?

I do wonder what the other races are like?

Rome was what first came to my mind instead of Greeks.

Well, Rome and Athene were similar in a lot of ways.

We really don't have much to say, no. The statuary could be one or the other, unless I'm missing something. They mention a Diet, which could be a Roman Senate, but it could just be a play on the Japanese Diet and have nothing to do with Rome. So who knows.

I'll go for Greeks, I always felt that even the classic Elves (the Tolkien ones) were inspired by them. Greeks were since the ancient times a people able of giving birth to both very proud warriors and refined philosophers, poets and artists. Romans were only brutal conquerors until they conquered Greece - at which point a Roman historian said that "the feral winner was conquered by the defeated". In other words, by conquering Greece, Rome absorbed a lot of its culture and since they were becoming wealthy and powerful enough that they didn't feel like their old customs suited them any more, they bought fully into that culture. Everything that is refined, artistic or strictly non military or commercial related in Roman culture draws its origins from Greece anyways.
Plus Elven language and poetry traditionally sounds more like Greek than Latin.

refer to my post in page 3.

well the thing is...
Spoiler for minor content for next ep:


sigh well, I cant really blame reckoner for this one, its more of a combination of misunderstandings between him, the original source, and the anime presentation.

meanwhile for me though, I consider this a good idea in order to increase the content they could fit in, but doing this sort of also disrupts the flow and causes those misunderstandings like for reckoner here.

There will be people who tell you it's wrong, that such a ship cannot possibly exist. People will look down on you, and ridicule you for it. To many, you will become a NGNL pariah. When times like that come, remember this song. This song will get you through the rough times, and though your ship may never sail, this song will still give you hope.
