So Monarch got all high and mighty.
That war sure is getting serious.
The fight was pretty good.

I would assume with only 12 episodes they want to focus on just the main characters. They must have a target plot point they want to reach by ep12, so I guess they had to skim through this arc.

I thought it still went well being told this way -- the old guard are making way for new Wolves.

I think Monarch went down a bit too easily for a boss, even against 3 wolves. I was expecting Sen to lose.

@Tenchi: Lol, I bet most of us will be like, "Damn, Ume is back and it was getting good too!" xD

I was expecting Monarch to be winning, then a Big Damn Heroes moments from The Wizard

Wow, didn't expect this arc to be over fast. I swear, Oshiroi has the Perverse Sexual Lust trope going on big time

So that's what the God of Discounts meant when she said it was her fault. Cheap trick by Endo to beat her up before she got to the store. Nice triple team to take him out though. Shaga on the bike was great. Oh man Oshiroi's recap was hilarious. Wonder how she got the bento this week, probably in the same way though.

Actually, to upgrade it to the next level, I think it should be "Pervert of the Harem".

I like this kind of episode. I think this is a case where the more they take it seriously the funnier it becomes. And I think it's perfectly appropriate for the Monarch to lose soundly. Going by the show's logic (which is hilarious logic), he lost the moment he started fighting for glory instead of for dinner. Having him actually be strong would kill the joke.

I find the name "The Rookie" to match his style.

Sato started from scratch and built his way up, but he still has a lot to learn. It would be a good title for him in my opinion.

Episode 06

Ah, Monarch..... if you thought starving yourself for 3 days would give you an edge, you will never be able to beat 3 people at once who need a dinner for the night

Awesome footwork by Sen-chan, I honestly saw her ripped pantyhose coming but I didn't want to believe it but, I'm still a little perplexed, why is she the Ice Witch... perhaps that cold tone of her voice... the silver hair... or that icy stare that seems to freeze me solid in more ways than one

But yeah, like the King, I'm not buying it how Ayame could have lost to Satou. Eh, maybe it's because she wasn't wearing her super effective school uniform. Or maybe that thing I said earlier about these girls' kicks being more powerful than their punches comes into play

But looks like Satou grabbing Oshiroi's tail is going to be a recurring gag. But that's not fair! Grabbing a girl's hair like that surely hurts, RAWR violence where the UmeUme haters now *runs*

Looks like my prediction from last week was totally right about the Wizard beating Matsuba Kiku in the past

The fight was ok, not as awesome as the previous ones. Didn't really buy the Satou beating Ayame at the end either, Ayame most likely never got serious with him =_=

The serious tone didn't really felt good with a series such as this. Hopefully they'll go back to the comedy and fanservice part next week
Yeah, they laid it on pretty thick as to who Matsy really is. Wait... that's not the important part. Ayame get's some tantalizing bounce (twice in one sitting!) and you don't mention it?

You're not the Ero King! Who are you? What have you done to him?

I was so thinking the same thing. Make it finalized with UmeUme giving him the title and we have a winner

An interesting part about all this, the scene at the end of the ep indirectly showed that with Wizard having left the country, and the strIce Witch as his padawan, it makes Yarizui the strongest of the west, so I'm hoping now that the first half is covered, I'm prepping for the twins to show up

I was so hollering when the eyecatch came on Matsy-chan, crossing your legs like that is cheating Now I'm fueling the tiny hope that perhaps when they run out of girls to eyecatch, that maybe Brunette will get her place, and show her face

Well, I think in Ben-to war terms, being a rookie would equate to the title of "dog". Satou certainly has made a name for himself and having defeated a number of wolves should make him a wolf. So rookie would be a bit lower than he currently is.

Hey, if Oshiroi can ninja out a bento even without Satou and Sen, then anything can happen.

There are also other reaons why Ayame could have lost, like her having a soft spot for Satou.

Exactly, EVERYTHING that we've been told what Ben-to wars was all about, he was the polar opposite in EVERY way. So it did make perfect sense for him to go down that easy. And then he foolishly starved himself for the "hungar". How many times have we've been told that true wolves know they'll have a Ben-to to eat on by the end of the battle.

As far as Ayame, I think its just that Satou is probably better than her now, or at least close enough to her level where he can beat her. I also like that its established they can duke it out, but in the end she still loves him without any hard feelings. Satou, you seriously need to hit that.

I'm going to say that Brunette, Beardy and Monk did the fighting while Oshiroi snuck in for a steal

Oh, she's sure into him. It's just that they both had a punch incoming, so... I guess they didn't show it for a reason. *cough* probably the same reason why he hasn't hit UmeUme *cough*

But perhaps it's her winning strategy! Lose, grab instant noodles, and then mooch off Satou's grub.

Hana is very observant, as befits a novelist. She just waits until the coast is clear and then waltzes in and disappears before the fighters realize she's there. Maybe "ninja" is the right word, lol. The bit of her BL novel she read was pretty explicit, eh?

By the way, this month is voting time for the 2011 Seiyuu Awards, and I think Yuuki Aoi is showing us the best supporting performance of the year here. The link goes to the main Seiyuu Awards page.

I agree with Tenchi Ryu, in a way it's true that Monarch got beat too easily but I suppose he really is more of a mid-boss, and him being an underhanded wolf is what got him beat. He fought pretty good against two wolves and Sato too. Really, that 3vs1 fight was just great to look at, great action scenes, and it really seem busy and hectic as befitting for a battle royale. The episode ends on a heartwarming note too, though I wonder what exactly is it that gives you the right to call yourself a wolf anyway? Satou seem to be strong enough anyway, maybe he just need time to build up the recognition?

Oh, and I won't lie, not having Ume for 2 episodes feel great, although it seem she's returning next ep? I'll be generous and give her another chance to impress me, otherwise there's that handy skip button. Also, is the anime really all that different from the LN? I'm glad I haven't read it yet then, as I feel the anime did a damn good job on its own anyway, so if it pales in comparison, that can only mean that the LN is even a greater read if (when!) it's translated.
