The very setup for Saber does it no favors. It feels like the episodes are 90% action scenes with the rest devoted for story development and comedy beats. Rintarou and Touma finally have a real conversations, that lasts all of two sentences before Touma says the thing that would instantly make Rintarou turn on him again. Stupid

There's no real story to be had if the characters can't even have a meaningful conversation with each other. And swordman's man-out-of-time act isn't enough to keep the story entertaining or drive it forward

Everything about this series is the worst, which can be embodied in Ren. The four-way fight sucked. A fight between Ren and Touma would have been good, since Ren thinks he has legitimate reasons for fighting Touma. But there's no reason for Desast and one of the Megiddo guys to be there

tldr: No one cares because you have a dumb bullshit story

It's interesting that Mei uses uchi instead of watashi to say "I". Her helping Yuuri transform was probably the better scenes in this episode, since it was funny? You can't have them carry the show with just Yuuri and Mei antics

I'm just waiting for a few people to start trashing on Ren soon. 🍿

Ren should be renamed as the Sword of the Moron.

The entire time he was just finding excuse to be stupid!

Yeah, what's going on with Tassel. They're doing weird things with his introductions lately, and he didn't even do an outro this time

Saving time I believe. He's probably be introduced to the actual story sooner or later.

Also, there is an after credit scene. So that might also be the reason why Tassel does not have an outro.

Not a good episode.... Back to how Saber was in the beginning.... :( :( :evil: :evil:

Why walls of cars? Don't get it...
Why are the members of Sword of Logos acting as they've actually talked to Touma about this whole matter before?
Ren is still grieving Kento's death..... :lol: :roll: :?: :?: :x :|
Why do I suddenly feel that Ren is jealous of Touma because of his friendship and closeness with Kento?
What is that face Ren just made? Lol...
I don't get it. Mei is super irresponsible and can't keep an eye on anyone properly, yet Touma keeps putting her in charge of the guys.... Super stupid....
All the scenes with Mei in this episode were ridiculous on a whole new level.
No matter how much people insult Ren, it's never enough. Because he always deserves more. :| :| :| :shock: :roll: :roll:
I really hope Mei learned her lesson this episode now that she was caught up in an explosion!! Hopefully, she won't be wandering around the battlefield anymore. :? :|
Ridiculous fight scenes.... Toum being cornered by both his (former and supposed) ally and his actual enemies.... :shock: :shock: :shock:
Wait, why'd Desast come back all of a sudden? Where has he been all this time?
So... who's fighting who now? Sorry, lost track because of how bad this episode is.... :| :? :? :roll:
Ok, why does every time Rintarou comes and talks to Touma and they have some common ground, Touma brings up the "real enemy" Sword of Logos and irritates Rintaou, and loses that small bit of common ground Rintarou had just created?? Super stupid!!!! :evil: :evil: :evil: Why not try and focus on the things they actually agree on for one freaking second??!!
And now after being blown up, Mei is talking and acting like an old hag!!! :evil: :evil: :evil: :shock: :shock: :? :? :!: :!:
The last scene where Yuuri heals the two annoys me... I bet eventually they'll say that Yuuri is the source of the great power that Touma's supposed to attain..... :roll: :roll: :shock: :shock:
So now Buster and Daishinji-san have a conversation about the fight between him and Touma in the last episode??
Finally, back o the topic of Sophia's disappearance... :| :roll: :?
Spoiler
Next time, Yuuri finally gets an actual Rider form. More fighting between Touma and Daishinji-san. :| :|

He's technically already been introduced though? Granted it was blink-and-you-miss-it, and they didn't mention it nor did it come into play in the episode at all, but he was still in the real world with Yuuri.

Frankly, if it takes 20+ episodes to put him in maybe don't actually have a narrator character? Nothing of value would be lost if he were merely an annoying voice from the sky.

I'm aware of that. What I mean is him finally interacting with Touma and the others.

After this ep, I feel Yuri / KR Saikou is 2nd Rider, not Rintarou. Some of my friends feel the same.

Don’t know why, maybe because the role of Rintarou is reduced much (plus his dump act recently). Yuri has more personality and better than Ren at this time.

You mean 'Rin' short for Rintarou and not Ren, which is that moron green Rider.
