I was kinda surprised to see this anime got 24 episodes.
No wonder the plot is pretty slow-ish.
And it's starting to look like harem too.
Was expecting more of this anime..
No I'm just considering of dropping it.
I could've handled a normal 12-episode season, but 24 seems too much.
Also, it's interesting how the main character is doing the least fighting.
Guess he has enough girls around him to fight instead of him.

Yeah, it's starting to look like a harem now with Sayaka's actions in the latest episode. The latest arc also felt rushed. Oh and looks like spoiler[Asagi] made her moves.

spoiler["Now you know". Yup, that kiss sealed the deal there and Akatsuki knows now]. I wonder how Yukina will take it though if she ever finds out.

As with the arc, I guess the conflict is resolved for now but I sense more danger coming. Not sure how they will do the next arc since there's a new character based on the PV and I don't read the LN for this.

Thank you Asagi. thank you so much for being proactive and spoiler[letting the guy know know how you feel]. that was a pretty cool ending to the arc. I'd love to see the other familiars he has

Episode 8

Yeah, now we have a harem. I don't suppose a main character could make a proper decision for once. spoiler[That kiss] was kind of a little insensitive, although compared to a show I watched last season involving a talking squirrel, it is not much.

The preview has kitties, I am already excited.

Been an Asagi fan since the beginning. Why? Because she is clearly the prettiest! Also, I have a thing for gadget girls

I dropped Strike the Blood after the latest episode. Doing so between arcs felt like a good place to stop. If I started the next arc I might feel compelled to finish it. The thought of going another four episodes of this doesn't really jive with me. This was never a priority watch for me anyway and it is sinking - nay, it has already sunk - into the depths of mediocrity. Worse, it isn't very entertaining (not even ironically). The harem antics and breast-groping just make me groan. I don't hate the show, but I've got little enthusiasm for it. Best that I drop it now, and so I have.

I had some high expectations of this anime..
It totally didn't live up to it.
If I had know there would be so much ecchi and harem in it..
Guess not every anime can be judged by its name. Disappointed.
Time to drop this 'cause there's no way I'm gonna suffer through another 15 episodes.

You gotta love girls like Asagi who take the initiative. That flashback of that crying girl was weird since that was her first appearance.

I thought it was clear that was Asagi when she was younger. Guess she ditched the glasses and dyed her hair.

But yeah, I wasn't particularly impressed with Asagi before, but since the end of the last episode she gets props for making a very obvious move (as opposed to Sayaka whose constants calls go right over Kojou's head).

Kojou is a total sis-con Laughing

It's good when shows about demons remember that if demons exist, angels do too.

Ohhhhhhhh. I thought that was a flashback of his recent visit to the hospital, so I assumed it was a new girl.

It would be odd if he had a flashback to some random girl while he was spending time with Asagi Anime smallmouth + sweatdrop

But yeah, I figure that was when they first met. A pretty apt thing to flashback to considering how he's re-thinking their relationship.
