Just to be clear, are there people here that think Chitanda's googly eye effect was meant to literally depict some sort of supernatural power? I was under the impression that it was just a visual gag...

Hmm...

Less talented people all hot and bothered because the naturally gifted aren't motivated to exploit their superior abilities to the fullest.

Gee, where have I heard this concept before?...

I kinda agree with Fred on this. It cannot be disputed that Orecki has been and continues to be patronizing towards Chitanda. It betrays a lack of respect for her, which is a foundational requirement...

If that's true, it would raise the stakes for this mystery by an order of magnitude, wouldn't it?

Whoever catches Jumonji will be the toast of the entire school!

Another question: is it a coincidence that Irisu and the student council bigwigs were all present at this particular show?

You are being kind, but thank you.

I cannot freakin stop thinking about Irisu. I think the only way I’ll get her out of my head is to vent my thought traffic here.

It’s clear that the Empress tarot was intended to serve as the shorthand for Irisu’s character, just as Orecki, Eru, Mayaka and Satoshi are handily thumbnailed by their respective tarot symbols. So...

Ah, a subject near and dear to my heart - the perils of translation.

As usual, nobody is persuaded in the end, but a fun mental exercise all the same. I think I'll move on now to the more controversial issue of what to make of Irisu.

However, before anything else,...

Anyway, any...

I was kinda hoping somebody would pick up and comment on the fact that Irisu shook Houtaro's hand. I'm actually surprised that this didn't come up in that loooong Irisu-centric discussion.
