Im not sure that's a good idea considering his massages apparently cause orgasms. she might want to go futher then the girls would kill him and then no more show.

ASDFEGFAFGAGAG Are you kidding me? Another tournament ruined by bad guys?!!! Why can't we have a legit tournament instead of previous filler episodes? Also the teachers in this school are so #@%#ing useless. Isn't this suppose to be the best IS school in the world? The homeroom assistant was a former representative, so I am sure there are other former representatives in this school. I can understand why Chifuyu and the assistant don't fight because they are giving out orders, but why are the other teachers only good for evacuating other students.

Season 2, Episode 9

Yeah, you would think they would have a better way to defend themselves than relying on 8 students.

And now Kanzashi is also running in the ED. I don't suppose she won't be reduce to those harem hijinks that just makes all of the girls come across as bland?

There was also those 2 other girls in the tournament. They must have been pretty strong since only that pair got a bye to the 2nd round. Of course they were not asked to defend despite being close.

Well they certainly finished this arc up sooner than I thought. Guess they're gonna go anime original for the last 3 episodes? Well, from the looks of the preview next ep might be a Cecilia focused episode. I hope that's the case.

So Cecilia got her episode, but what about Lin? With 2 episodes left, I doubt she is getting one. Everyone else got at least half an episode devoted to them this season. Lin didn't even get a chance to do her thing for Ichika's birthday. Poor childhood friend #2 got the short end of the stick for this season.

Anyway Ichika is sure wasting the perfect harem situation. I can't think of any other anime off the top of my head, where the main guy is allowed to measure girls by the teachers and the girls themselves. Of course he is a pansy during that scene. Imagine a scene like that with someone like Akatsuki Ousawa from Hagure Yuusha no Estetica. But he had no problems showing Charlotte how to make onigiri. Anyone else think of Patrick Swayze from Ghost during that scene lol?

It was nice to see spoiler[Tabane again. She completely wiped the floor with Phantom Task and now she wants to build an IS for Madoka.]

Worst episode imo so far from the season. I had to skim some parts but spoiler[Tabane was pretty badass the way she dealt with Phantom Task near the end there.]

It is nice Cecilia got an episode, but I'm sure they could have included her backstory in there somewhere! She's the only girl that didn't get one in the anime.

I'm continually baffled by this production. So this episode essentially covered the newest novel, but only the measurement scene and the one at the end are actually in the book. So the episodes to come will be completely anime original, but I suppose at this point they might as well.

I know the first season did this a few times, but was it really necessary to have the camera focus on the background THREE bloody times? The first time is fine as a way of censoring (to be replaced in the Blu Ray version) and the 2nd time was for the misleading innuendo bit (which fell flat regardless because we knew they were going to cook), but the 3rd time at the end had no reason for it. Makes me think perhaps they didn't have the money or time to actually animate it so they did a cop out.

*Sigh* I was quite enthusiastic about this when it was first announced but they really dropped the ball. It's no fault of the source material, it's just a lackluster adaptation. I don't mind loose adaptations so long as the new content is interesting, but here they needlessly take good stuff out of the novels and replace it with meaningless fluff.

I almost shut it off during the tape measuring scene. Really am I supposed to be entertained by Ichika acting like a stupid pussy all the time? How many times can he get pranked and react so helplessly?

The cooking sequence was actually not as bad but still mostly a waste of time. The suggestive dialog thing while panning suggestive room furniture is really really old.

Things like what Tabane did should really be what this anime is all about but it looks like we aren't going to get much of that if this season's track record is any indication. So disappointing.

Season 2, Episode 10

I was actually somewhat entertained by parts of the episode. Being given a spoiler[see-through blindfold seemed like him being told to suck it up and enjoy it]. The first panning of the place during suggestive scene felt a little funny in trying to say maybe it was worse than we thought. But the amount of times it panned just got damn annoying in that it was done during a scene we knew spoiler[was cooking], and during a cool action scene, I think saying that they maybe could not even animate the parts.

The spoiler[terrible cooking] actually was one of the first times I have felt genuinely humoured this season, which is terrible. I had a little laugh that the girls were all spoiler[wearing aprons] in the ED, except for spoiler[Laura who was wearing her pyjamas]. I was just wondering when Houki's sister would make a return, rather than so much spinning of wheels, feeling like time is being wasted.

She said Chifuyu is actually physically stronger than her. Makes you wonder why Chifuyu didn't just take a random IS and kick Phantom Task ass when they invaded the school twice.

Maybe they are worried that if she showed her power all of the students would feel discouraged by the huge difference in strength and will drop out? That or the need of drama.

I don't know it seems reckless to put students in dangerous situations. Heck the strongest student almost died in the battle against the unarmed IS.

I am pretty sure they know Chifuyu is in her own league. But yeah need for drama seems right.
