    I found this episode wonderful, but when I went to the reddit discussion to alleviate my need to discuss through reading others' discussions, it was practically empty! This episode was just great! Just as we're losing ourselves in Oriku's OPness (face it, the guy is using his intelligence to cross levels, but even the burnt corpses survived his desperate fight) this episode hits us in the face with how the characters are fallible. The prince is extremely righteous, and his morals are as unbending as Oriku's but he finds himself on the chopping block, and his last minute recanting is too late to save him. Meanwhile, Oriku's treacherous servant yet again sacrifices his morals to preserve his own life by licking the guy's foot, but he's pushed one stop further when told to decapitate his friend as he begs for his life. It's too much for the servant, but he's gone too far to turn around, as to not follow through is death. Meanwhile though, Oriku's fellow shinden deshi, who has neither the prince's morals nor the servant's self-preservation instincts, bursts in and slaughters all the evildoers because they didn't give her the pretty dress they lured her with (they probably wanted to make her a sex slave tbh). She has none of what the other two have, but she has power and talent and that settles everything. It was just awesome, and it's a shame the discussion was so dead. I'm really glad I remembered I had this series on hold.

    Hoping for a s3 or that the novel translation overtake the anime.

    we're still mid-season 2, but I wouldn't be surprised if we get a season 3. For season 1 the world setting was rather clear, but it's much clearer in season 2, and above all exciting!

    Some do, some don't

    that's quite wrong on so many levels....
    Most of us started from watching anime...

    A suggestion, you want someone to take notice then you use the common title for it. In this case, Spirit Blade Mountain.

    Had to google that to find out it's from a novel...

    Except the common anime name is Reikenzan, not Spirit Blade Mountain.

    And that's probably why the anime thread is dead.

    Well all the names are actually accurate but to find the anime better use Reikenzan , to find the novel better use Spirit Blade Mountain.

    At the very least, use the <Spirit Blade Mountain> tag. Not everyone is like me who'd google to find out what it is... >_>

    Thanks, I added that tag. But the reddit anime thread is likely dead because most of them aren't watching Reikenzan, unfortunately. Something similar happened when some guy said drop the Chaos;Child anime on twitter. The reddit threads completely emptied, and on another note I'm not recommending the novel cuz I never read it. I'm simply a fan of the anime now that I've watched episode 8.

    More likely to bait the manhua or novel readers by the Novel name. I do read both, but never bothered with the anime 'coz I keep forgetting the name (or that it even has an anime considering the different name it has). I'll see how much data I have left and maybe go watch it later...ep8 first :p

    To be fair for chaos; child people more prefer the original source after some deliberate cut in anime, oh well what I can say they just repeat same mistake with it's predecessor

    Reikenzai is actually sounded like it's novel name, ling jian shan, though I am curious why you tend to use the pronunciation instead of translated name for anime..

    Because the anime sites have it under Reikenzan, and usually a translated title (for lack of an official English release) is controversial. Meanwhile, the Japanese title as is is never controversial.

    PS: Reikenzan is a Japanese anime despite the CN WN source, so you have to stick with the Japanese pronunciation
