Annotated Anime: Log Horizon 2 episode 11

This is the episode in which things go according to plan. Well, mostly anyway. And where things don't follow the plan, we and our heroes still come out ahead, ready for the next stage.  So, all in all, a raid well-executed.

Annotated Manga: Bleach chapters 607-609

Annotated Anime: Gundam Build Fighters Try episode 10
