Celia must be one tough mofo to wear a suit of armor like that with next to NO clothing underneath while riding a horse and not be in extreme pain.

My Japanese isn't great, but the spoiler[sketch thing was a premature ejaculation pun], right?

I had a chuckle over Takahiro's response of the floating uniform and responded with "well... it's not Mio's uniform", clearly he expected more misfortune for the girl lol.

Episode 7

I now consider those two an official yuri pair, you can't tell me otherwise. I really do wonder about their common sense since as soon as I saw their spoiler[clothes on the wheels] I wondered why they would do something so foolish since spoiler[those things are designed to move].

Takahiro's deadpan personality really makes this show great. Best of all, he's seldom attacked by the girls he makes direct contact with. Alhough I guess spoiler[Akane's an exception this week after he groped her, but it's not like he gets chased away screaming or something like that. Hell, she calms down once she realizes it's him.].

The best part was his casual run-in with Fiona while holding spoiler[Akane's bra].

kinda funny how the most improved character is the comic relief. this show is weird with it's fanservice. spend an entire episode with Celia and Akane spoiler[naked, trapped in a windmill], but doesn't go for the easy, spoiler[get caught by the entire female cast in the bath.]

Episode 8

Well we had the topic of the very Japanese things focused on here. The reason for the place in this episode was.... because the very spoiler[rich owner apparently thinks Japan is the bees knees], of course making her a little ignorant of the customs works well with the Japanese audience for feeling superior. The preview was a little brief in saying that apparently the town has a lot of Japanese people (for whatever reason) and that the people show their appreciation by planting those trees that confuse us of the setting. While doing that the characters also told us off for trying to think too hard about it.

Now imagine the looks on the girls' faces would turn out to be when the day they find out who "Winiford-kun" actually was..

They apparently thought it was an empty suit. All he has to do is be a bit vague as to when he dropped it off.

Episode 9

Even compared to the rest of the series, this was a pretty awful episode. The excuse to get all of the girls into a beauty contest was pretty lame.

A triple attack? Seriously?

If each horse is travelling at 20KPH then their closing speed is 40KPH, which is 11.11m/s. Lances are only what, 4m long? So the lances take up 8m of the gap between the horses. Which means that the entire contact time between the two knights is less than one second, assuming that knights are able to thrust sideways but not behind themselves. And in that short time spoiler[Akane] managed to thrust a heavy lance three times at a moving target whilst simultaneously dodging? Give me a break, that's ridiculous.

To be fair the entire show is ridiculous. But prochronisms and fanservice aside, this takes the cake in my eyes.

SAMURAI SPIRIT!!! yeah, that was ridiculous, but I though it was cool. what's killing me is how far they will go to delay whom he's going to choose.
