  • "Pervert, pervert, pervert!"

    This was easily one of the craziest and funniest episodes I've ever seen in an anime before.

    In the second battle of a best of three series, Jack must fight for Team MÄR against Pano of Team Chess.

    Jack dominates the beginning of the match, with his mother watching every move that he makes.

    The Werewolf Brothers, former enemies of Jack and Ginta, are now friends of Jack's Mother (so, they're watching, as well).

    In the end, Jack ends up losing, when he gets hit in the "family jewels" by Pano's ÄRM.

    So, the next episode will set up a winner takes all match between Ginta and the leader of Team Chess.

    A very silly episode that I found very predictable, which is why I gave it a mid-8 rating.moreless

    • Crowd Person: That kid, he doesn't seem to be very strong at all. He looks really weak!
      Dorothy: Hahaha! (has flashback of Jack's progress in the training gate) Don't worry.
      Crowd Person: (to another Crowd Person) Well, if she's so sure about it...
      Other Crowd Person: Let's hope for the best!
      Dorothy: Although... he is the weakest member of our group, y'know.
      Crowd Person: How can we not worry if he's weak?!!
      Other Crowd Person: Yeah, which is it?!?

    • Edward: He didn't touch that girl, did he?
      Snow: But I don't think Jack is that kind of person.
      Dorothy: Oh yeah, well he snuck up on a woman batheing at the Training Gate.
      Snow: (enraged) What? How dare Jack touch that poor girl!
      Nanashi: He's a kid after my own heart, isn't he?

      Jack: (nervously crawls back down the beanstalk) But I didn't, I didn't touch her i swear.
      Pano: Pervert Pervert PERVERT!
      (Jack is then surrounded by kanji that read "Hentai", which means "pervert" in Japanese)

      Nanashi: Yeah... A lot...

      Ginta: Jack!
      Babbo: Yes!
      Edward: You can do it, Jack!
