Am I the only one who thinks this episode was a bit too preachy? Well I guess it was pretty much required exposition, but still…

Ah well, at least we still have Hitei-hime.

And to summarise the important stuff this episode:

  • Togame’s past revealed
  • Hitei-hime is possibly Shikizaki Kiki’s descendent.
  • Kyotoryuu is Shikizaki’s final, perfected Deviant Blade… which means Shichika is one as well!

With that out of the way, only two more episodes! They better not be boring!

I must’ve missed the memo stating WHITE FOX is part of Sunrise. ALIPRO OP following Minami Kuribayashi… pretty much quite a Sunrise trademark now. Not to mention the slightly spoiler-tastic OP featuring some cool juxtaposition shots of the protagonists vs the antagonists that is highly likely not going to be used in the main show… yeah, pretty much Sunrise.

Probably the most heart-wrenching battle of the show so far. The cinematography and BGM of this scene really hits hard.

Yes…. apparently Togame is fan of being stepped upon. I guess she really is a ドM.

In many ways, the best and the most trolling episode of the series so far….

But first, prerequisite Togame fanservice….

A rather solid episode this time, balancing character development and action.

I quite liked the owner of the Deviant Blade this episode, Tsuruga Meisai, since she’s pretty much the first sane owner of the swords that we’ve met so far. She had a genuinely good purpose in life and a tragic backstory, plus she was rather awesome as a character (like how she tried to use some “tactics” on Shichika on the eve of their battle), so I was rather sad that she had to die at the end of the episode.

But, as Shichika said, she was, alas, also “poisoned” by the sword and probably wouldn’t have gone on too well without it, so in a way it was a mercy killing by him. Well, I sure hope Togame makes sure their guarantees to her will be kept.

So far, those Maniwani guys are turning in to the generic small fry of the month and I really gotta say it’s a bit LOL after all the fuss about them in episode one. At least this month’s Maniwani wasn’t as annoying as last month’s backwards talker. Sabi Hakuhei’s catchphrase is really LOL no matter how many times I listen to it and next month is going to be about him. The preview sure looks promising on the action aspects, with rocks and islands getting sliced and diced.

Not much else to say about this episode, apart from Togame being rather cute when Shichika carried her, himesama-dakko-style up that 1000-step staircase.

Wow, they sure started off on way different tack compared to the last episode. In just a month, they’re already in to licking each other!

Of course, I am jesting, but this was a really good episode after the first one.
