No idea. I've been watching them all and saying, "Yea, that's good, I guess."

Episode 7, no doubt.

Episode 7
Now that we're a quarter through the anime, I thought it'd be interesting to see which episode people have preferred the most.

I thought the 7th was hilarious. The others have been great too, but this one really stood out to me as the best.

I think episode 5 has been my favorite so far, aside from episode 1 all of them have been simply amazing though.

5 just because of the fight between Chie and Ai.

My favorite was Yukiko's (Episode 4) because even though it seems the overt symbolism didn't appeal to some, I loved it. I also enjoyed how she accepted her Shadow the most. All of the episodes, except for maybe 1, were great, though.

4 was pretty awesome. The competition for best episode will really heat up now that Kanji is on the team, though.

I really liked episode 5 and 6. The bitch slap fight between Chie and Ai was terrific. Is it bad that I'll probably watch the show again once the English dub comes out?

I'll do the same, so you're not alone.

Man I'm already watching these episodes like 5 times, I think I need help, and I'll definitely watch them another 5 times dubbed.

They're all too amazing for me to pick a favorite.

#14 Posted by Devoid (429 posts) -

Huh.. I dunno. Each episode has a part where I go "that's awesome!", so I can't decide.

Maybe Episode 5 JUST for the "Zigeunerweisen Sarasate" scene.

It was a tough thing to decide, but my favorite was Episode 7 from being so very funny. XD

I probably will too (though only if the voice actors sound... familiar.)

Wait why did Chie bitch slap Ai? Chie could have easily punt her ass.

If they don't get the majority of the original cast back I probably won't re-watch it.

I thought episode 4 was the best summery of why I like that game's story so much

#20 Posted by Afroman269 (7388 posts) -

I'll wait for the dubbed version.

@slightconfuse: thanks
#24 Posted by FluxWaveZ (19153 posts) -

Glad I'm not alone in thinking episode 4 was awesome. The votes display pretty much the order in which I'd rate the episodes, with 4 and 7 switched around.

5.

I was still a little on the fence up that point because of the slavish devotion to the source material. I felt like that was the episode where it began to reach out and do a little of its own thing, also the comedy became much more pronounced.

Topic's a little old, but I just rewatched episode 4 and I think it's my favorite for a few reasons, the main one being pacing. Even with the most recent episode (Rise and Teddie's shadows) I think the show still suffers from being too fast-paced for its own good. I feel in this episode they nailed it though. Nothing felt rushed; they gave themselves ample time to delve into Yukiko's problems and her relationship with Chie. They didn't speed through the shadow fight, and they even had time to add something new to the fiction (the bird) that didn't feel contrived. Yeah, it's not a funny episode, and the end borders on slash fiction territory, but in terms of what this show should be, I think this episode exemplifies it pretty well.

Episode 4's still my favorite episode yet. Hopefully, it won't stay that way for the duration of the anime.

Episode 30 was pretty damn good.
