Episode 2


After running away Hiyori and Kanami pick up some money Hiyori hide away to buy new clothes and guitars cases to hide their swords. Meanwhile the presidents of the school have been called in and Mai has been question. Kanami calls Mai and she is able to track her location and find her. However they get away before she can and even fight a Aratama. It's at this moment that Mai finds them and tells her about the president doing all she can to lower her sentence but she can't as Hiyori reveled that the head is actually a Aratama in disguise. Mai lets them go but not before giving Kanami some cookies.

This episode we find out the reason why Hiyori attacked the head and thats because she an Aratama herself. We see that Hiyori was prepared in case she got away and because of that bought new clothes and a place to stay the night. Now that Mai knows the truth will they come after her?

Still got mixed thoughts on this show...mostly in regards with the pacing.

It still feels like the story is all over the place so I hope it improves. Starting to like the two main girls' character chemistry more now compared to the first episode.

I will say this though, I still got some hopes for this show but it really needs to control its pacing better.

Ep 2

This episode felt all over the place to me. It's a shame since some of the developments would have been interesting if they were handled a bit better. Kanami on the run with Hiyori, the revelation about Origami and all the other stuff seems like what you would see in the late-game as opposed to the second episode. And with 2 cours it makes the revelation feel even more out of place. Maybe there is something even bigger planned, then?

Still liked it better than the first episode, even with the problems. My biggest gripe so far has to be the terminology though. I get that half of the big words are sword techniques but there is a bunch of other stuff I'm clueless about. Like the stuff in the compass that comes from the monsters. What the heck is it?

Hair-eye intensifies.

Seeing that scene actually makes the way they insist on drawing her eye through her hair easier for me to take. Where the first episode was "oh god why" this one pushed my reaction to "it looks ridiculous but at least it's only one".

With the basics of the plot established this looks like a show I'll finish, though it's probably one of the shows I'll put on hold until the end of the season and then binge it, the next episode or two will tell. I just hope we'll concentrate on fights against the guard toji and keep the awful CGI monsters to a minimum.

After a fairly generic episode 1, I really enjoyed episode 2, so this show might shape up to be interesting.

It's continuing the renegade theme that High School Fleet had for its first few episodes. It's quite intriguing too.

I really enjoyed the first episode, and I liked the second episode. I've recently started the manga (which is around 3 chapters). And it's something I'll continue reading/watching. I like how the manga is paced, it explains things a bit more -- the anime seems to be a bit more fast paced.

I'm thoroughly on the fence with this one. The "shocking" reveal was so sudden and out of the blue that it had me laughing. It's just a generic set-up to pit the girls against the academy. Which isn't helped at all by how out of place and ugly the cg train monsters look and sound. I mean, yeah, there might be a decent enough plot going forward with the girls trying to fight the system and uncover the corruption at the top, but the clumsy pacing isn't promising.

It may be generic and badly written. Certainly it's not blowing me away. but I for one, am finding entertainment by turning my brain off and going on for the ride. the girls are engaging enough personality wise that I wish to root for them.

The only bright spot thus far is Mai. Despite starting off as the "weaker best friend of the MC" she's obviously got great sword skills AND she's smart as well. Honestly I'd rather have her as the MC.

Still not great but not terrible either. I'll stick around for a bit longer to see where it goes.

Ahhhh So, there actually is a story to this. Nothing original in the slightest, but I am still enjoying it so far. We'll see by next episode if I "pause" this one or keep it going.

I like the development of the story...

but the cg is starting to bother me on certain parts especially when they use it during the speaking parts
