This whole fight between Accelerator and the robots has felt so drawn out, particularly when it's combined with endless annoying dialogue:

Mad Scientist: Now my robots are more powerful than you! Hmm.

Accelerator: HAHAHA! Come at me!

Mad Scientist: Behold the new powers of my robots! [ability explanation]. Not even you can stand against them now! Hmm.

Accelerator: You dreaming?! You can't stand against my evilness!! HAHAHA!

Rinse and repeat for the entire episode. I've typically been kinda indifferent towards Accelerator's cringy laughing and dialogue. But this show is making me hate it.

Was the spell on that dagger only a single-use item? If not, why not try to stab Hirumi again right away? I can understand her being flummoxed by stabbing Hishigata when he jumped in her path, but that guy had it coming.

What, is a non-psychopath/sociopath who is also not a battle-hardened soldier not allowed to be extremely shocked over the fact that they just killed a living human being?

...Why would you use that character design for a character named Esther Rosenthal?

Japan, you do realize Europe contains more than one phenotype, right?

I guess they are the inverse of when Westerners think East Asians look the same. I like that, like when they make a show with Italians and they are all tall and blond. Laughing

I am really sad to have to post negative things about this the first two esp of the entire set of series were brilliant. But now it seems they have lost their way with this, maybe feeling overpowered by what came before but for whatever reason, the directors and the senior staff need to take a weekend away to brainstorm together and see if they can get it back on track. if not..i fear the entire feel of the best parts of this story will be gone....buried under mediocre re tellings over and over like using of plushies of the characters instead of their real is becoming a shadow of what came before.

I hope they can save it..but this episode and most of the ones since the first two are just lost and wandering in the dark.

It is sad.

The whole scenario, and the action leading up to it, also raises a couple of questions about practical issues. The length of time that Accelerator's actively using his powers is an issue. I thought it was established previously that the device allowing him to using his powers only works for a few minutes at a time, but between the last episode and this one, he seems to have been using his powers for much longer than that. Also, Hirumi's torso still wearing a bra even after transiting through her body was an eyebrow-raiser. Why bother with it if Taowu/Isaac has discarded any remaining aspect of Hirumi? It just reinforces my impression that someone in the creative team has a lingerie fetish.

Yeah, he hasn't been released from the hospital yet so we know this is before he upgraded it. The battery should only last for maybe like 10 minutes. I guess those are planet Namek minutes.

Honestly, underwear thing does continually feel more weird. If they weren't going to leave them naked, maybe they should have just given them some clothes.
