It was a strong episode on the whole.
After such a well directed episode from the co-series director Aya Komaki, any episode following afterwards would feel like a little bit of a downgrade. Because of that there was some good amount of pressure on young episode director Satoshi Ito and he mostly pulled it off really well.
There were some scenes that imo felt a little bit flat and lacked gravitas, but not every shot needs to (and can) look like it's straight from a Makoto Shinkai movie.
And this episode was packed all throughout with more than enough cool shots such as creative & illustrative background art and colorful scenes etc., proving again why Nagamine's apprentice Satoshi Ito is one of the coolest episode directors on board.
Lady Toki's scene in the anime was definitely more emotional than it was in the manga and I really liked that.
There's gonna be definitely some averse reactions about these 2 particular scenes: Oden's and Ashura Douji's confrontation being a bit contradictory with one of the recent chapters and the anime making it seem like Oden died by the hands of fodder.
Well, what people tend to forget is that the pre-production of an episode happens weeks, even months, prior to an episode airing and at that time that certain chapter wasn't out. Which tells me it wasn't a deliberate call from the anime to alter the nature of the Oden/Douji confrontation but rather bad luck. Therefore I'd find it a bit unfair to knock off the anime for such a decision.
Secondly, the anime doesn't explicitly state that Oden was killed by fodder, it could just as well mean that he got captured and was about to get executed later down the road. This is what happens when the anime decides to surf on the wave of vagueness and uncertainty in a bit too dangerous manner I guess.
