That kinda made the entire thing extra rapey and Karin extra vulnerable IMO. And I am not sure how I feel about it. Especially since so far Karin hasn't really been pulling her weight.

The ultimate irony being, CHAMO of all people would be the last person to ever support censorship of naked female bodies. He should sue for that use of his image, which goes against his convictions.

Okay as fight go, this one was done pretty well. The major problem of course was that seemingly due to budgetary concerns they pretty much limited it to one, easy to paste on location, which is boring.
Also arts assets wise, WTF the moth of Mr Furball is NOT animated when he is speaking?!? That is WIRED and is not helping at ALL with the whole thing seeming to have been made on shoe string budget.
The bigger problem is that the cutting removed most of Karin's role here, and kinda 2-3 major fights from the end, one of which was QUITE important to set up the next arc, but I won't go into it, more than that.
The result is that Mr Swordsman and Karin are kinda superfluous here.
Also due to the cuts, the quiet bits where most of the jokes happen, and that are kinda the soul of Negima-like things were mostly cut, so the entire thing is kinda dry compared to the manga.

Spoiler for Differenced between Episode 5 and manga:

Unfortunately, it was expected for such cuts and changes to happen, given how far the series seems to be expected to cover of the Manga

This wasn't quite as bad as Xebec's Negima chopping the Kyoto arc down to two episodes, but it still ended up rather skewered. I think giving it a single more episode would have done a lot for the arc.

Also the changes made kinda remove the reason the next arc happens where is happens you know?

And the next episode title kinda makes me wonder, what will they do next? It feels like some sort of filler episode?

But we should no say more for fear of possible spoilers.

Episode 5
Spoiler for Manga chapters covered:


They are blasting through the chapters as usual but for the most part they are sticking to the story. I did catch a translation error in the subs. The current year is 2086. The blind swordsman's flashback was to 2065. That's only 20 years ago not 25. I'm pretty sure he he 20 years ago as well in Japanese.

Oh and yeah, translation flubs wise, Karin did not meet Eva in 1943, but in 1493

Ep 5 endcard by Kaneda Yousuke, creator of romance comedy manga Kishoku Gakkou no Juliet.
https://www.mangaupdates.com/series.html?id=122123

It's a very loose version of Romeo and Juliet; who here are heads of warring school dorms in love with each other but must keep up appearances as enemies.

well, if given the choice, I'd rather the anime follow the manga more closely (thus more episodes ), but I have to admit all the cuts and changes haven't been too jarring so far.

also, how old is Karin again? If she was really from the 15th century (1493) then she would not be that much younger than Yukihime/Eva despite the impression I had

Well that was an alright episode. Though it did have some issues. Karin took way too long to clean things up with her first opponent. I'm sure using that power is something she's hesitant about, but who knows how many people died while she was considering her options. Plus what was the point? She shows up to the fight and then still does nothing . "I'll take the stronger one" she says before proceeding to just stand around and watch Tota fight.

Still some worthwhile moments. Tota at least had some good moments there. Of course the reality of his powers and the source is pretty easy to guess at. But suppose the show wants to at least give it some time before he finds out about it.

Kind of wish they'd been able to take down those guys. That werewolf is downright nuts. Letting him escape today will mean more bodies dropping in the near future.
