Then why didn't they make episode 13...episode 3-4 instead? It would have made more sense TBH since it's not like it did anything canon-breaking past all of the drama stuff. They could have easily slotted 13, literally as it is, in to an earlier slot in the series and it wouldn't contradict anything (as long as it's after Yura's haircut I guess), and the series would have ended on the way better note that was episode 12.

I don't think I've ever heard of it happening before, outside of Nadia (which was a different situation), but could it be possible they didn't find out until production started they had another week to fill? Or it could be some odd requirement by another member of the Production Committee.

All I really know is that I don't have much desire to watch this extraneous episode (but I probably will).

I suppose that makes sense...sigh...I was just so in to this show when it first came around and I'm sad to see it...go "bleh" on me.

Yeah. I'd rather have spent an extra episode dealing with the drama or Yura's magic powers than what we got with...this. This is such a blatant filler episode that I can't help but choke back a laugh. I dun even know.

I know the feeling man. After the first 5 episodes it was one of my favorite series of the season, I was telling people left and right to not pass the series up as it could have been the hidden gem of the season(it certainly didn't have much hype to my memory and it was always near the ass end of CR's "Popular" section on the PS3 app), and then things went dramatic on us, and it just slid further and further down my ranks, but episodes 11 and 12 helped it a bit, it at least helped its score with me. Before episode 11 I was preparing to give it a 6/10, but 11 and 12 raised it up to a 7 or 7.5. Though this pure filler episode might make me drop it down to 7 as I gotta take the whole season into account.

And even with the good score I still have to put at the bottom of my Summer 2013 rankings. As much as I like the first 5 episodes and 11 and 12(so essentially half the series), there is the big ball of suck right in between there. And ok maybe I am being too harsh on the dramatic episodes. The real issue is the whip lashing tone and direction. This series tried to be too many things at once and ultimately failed to do any of them in a truly satisfactory way. If they wanted to do drama, they should have gone in that direction right after episode 3, not give two more episodes of not-drama. -_-

I said i would get back to this so...
I don't know...im just disappointed that soooooo man things were left unexplained and it just sorta...ended lol
Yura just stopped trying hard it seems...that's not really a good lesson to learn from lol
Also, no yuri so my previous attempt at a doujinshi went to waste...

Episode 13

I think it was supposed to be a bonus Bluray only episode but since no one is buying it they decided they might as well air it.

Still, I thought episode 13 was fun and wish the whole series had stayed fun. The forced drama ruined it for me which really is too bad. I loved the use of the ED as an insert song here. Silly but fun like it started... sigh... generous 6/10 for the season.

Ep 13: the non canon conclusion (the main story ended ep 12)

Gonna list my reactions in order:

Kind of boring, why are they still going on with ep 13? Didn't Sona leave? Oh wait, dafuq? She's still here. Oh, this must be non canon.

Still kind of boring.

Wait, they're having a contest?

Oh sh!t that Rin-san scene HNNNG

The rest is just blah, fanservice episode

HNNNG Rin




My reaction to seeing Rin-san blushing:


Was gonna be a 6 out of 10 show but Rin-san saved it with this episode and her scenes, I say damn, fine, 7 out of 10 overall but only because of Rin :3

Well that was a crap way to go out. Granted yeah this is totally a filler/OVA episode.

And now I actually know what an animated character poll looks like.....

And one last point what the holy hell bullcrap is this "rule" that glasses wearing characters look better without their glasses? Nuts to that glasses make everyone look better! For example with Hanako in this very episode, she looks far better with her glasses on than off. With them off it makes her big ass eyebrows stand out even more.....

Just ignore all that and bask in the greatness that is Rin.

Bit late to this one, really have been enjoying it up to now and it's a bit of fun, but the airsoft depicted in my opinion is terrible just spraying blindly full auto, even some blind firing in there which his against the rules, and even when their like "Oh Yura is so good and Sonora just can't be beaten" people who play like that are always the first ones to get shot, jumping around and stuff as if it actually works ><, I know it's just a laugh since it's an Anime but it still got on my nerves, but as an airsofter there were a lot of parts I could relate and made me think "No way lol that's happened to me" and I don't like how they Call non hit taking Zombieing, it's not even got a name it's just called not taking your hits. Also more on topic I didn't like how they really built up Yura's special talent and then it disappeared for half the show only to be brought up right until the very recent episodes I mean fair enough maybe I'm being a bit pedantic but when she did actually bring it out again it was used to an awesome effect, wish we could have seen more of that massive across campus skirmish though

Edit: also in agreement with most on the 13th ep, granted it was cute, but just screamed filler to me so didn't really know what to think of it, bit gutted I waited a week and when I came to watch it that happened, but that aside was pretty cool to see a different side to Rin, even if it was a bit of a put on :).

As a Milsim Airsoft player though some parts were super cringe for me, the jumping around max Payne style in every game and the fact a bunch of high school Girls managed to beat a team of Marines, who would probably be packing Night Vision in the night game section of the tournament so none of them would have stood a chance anyway, that aside all of their training etc, they would have minced them in the day section.

Sorry if this is in Bad taste or anything but here's my Teams you tube Channel if you'd like to see some Milsim Style as well as casual play.

In the Video's I'm usually referred to or marked as C02 as that's my Call sign.

Also since this Anime is based on Airsoft, did anyone have a favorite load out in the show? :),

Have to say most of them I would have never though functional, and I hate high cap mags, but the Stella kit is pretty cute, and I usually hate seeing berets in Airsoft :P, would have been cool to see some more military loadouts, but Meisei's Black/Urban loadout was pretty cool as well.

And since I'm a very Avid Airsofter/Milsim Airsofter I thought I'd share some pics of my loadout :).

It's a US Special Forces Impression, based on a 2013 CAG/SFOD-D/Delta Force Operators kit,
I won't go into detail with a kit list since a lot of guys here won't know what the balls I'm talking about! :P

First pic:

Just an end of day team pic, just cropped everyone else out so you can see who I am.

Second:

This one is from a Night operation from a recent weekender I attended, picture was taken with the camera on a Galaxy S3 through a Gen 3 OMNI VII(This is the Generation and grade of the NVG) PVS 14 NVG Monocular, and I myself am wearing Gen 3 OMNI VII ANVIS 9s NVG Binoculars, Aiming is done with an infra red laser.

Sorry if anyone is adverse to this as I don't intend to derail the thread just trying to give my insight on airsoft and perhaps get people into airsoft who were inspired by the show ^^.

I really enjoyed Stella Women's Academy. It was one of the few hidden gems for me in the Summer line-up.

I was really glad I ended up choosing to read the discussion about the last episode before I actually watched the episode. Going in knowing it was an OVA-style add-on meant I could just enjoy it for what it was, and still have enjoyed the true finale. I'm glad I stuck around through the whole season of this show.
