I'm sure it has to do with the fact with Ryner going temporarily insane and blasting away with spells in the anime and episode 3 previews. Perhaps the eyes affect his sanity? Or maybe the the previous person with A.S. was extremely evil or something.

Also, people are stupid and shun "different" people for no reason at all. They're scared and jealous of what they don't have.

Well, that's the thing.

So far, Ryner hasn't really gone berserk with magic or anything, and possibly only a special scenario can cause that. Still, any king in his right mind would be giving one special treatment if it meant acquring the allegaince of such a person. In fact, Ryner's file practically describes him as the "greatest magician" in the kingdom due to his Alpha Stigma. Heck, in a kingdom of corrupt nobles, I find it hard to believe that Sion is like the first guy who thought of having him at his side.

On another note, the preview seems to hint at some revelation regarding the Alpha Stigma and Ryner... that is, if I'm inferring things right. Maybe the Alpha Stigma is the cause and origin of some great tragedy, that instead of admiring it, they just simply fear it.

...Did you see next episode's preview after the ED? Ryner's eyes activate, he flashes a psycho grin, and proceeds to choke Keifer and Sion. And in the second anime promotion vid, Ryner does a Lelouch laugh and starts blowing things up and he can't stop himself even though he wants to.

If that's not going beserk...

I think you've hit the nail on the head there, and there doesn't even have to be some nebulous "great tragedy" to cause it. They fear him. We've already seen that he can copy (and counterattack with) any magic used around him, but it also appears to give him non-offensive analysis abilities. Either one of those makes him dangerous to anyone allied against him, but both together make him incredibly powerful, and thus a threat to anyone who might find himself siding against him, either via their own ambition or Ryner's own whim. Frankly, I'm wondering how deep Sion had to go to find the evidence showing he is an Alpha Stigma user, as most anyone in a position of power with that knowledge would have had Ryner killed years ago.

And yes, should he go berserk...

Yeah, I mentioned that in my post above.

At best, he would've been contained by whatever governing body there is for the magicians (or something like that). He could've been easily used for anything relic-related or used as a weapon.

I have a feeling that Ryner's past might further deal with a backstory such as that.

Wait. What? Did I miss something in eps 1 & 2? I didn't pick up on any of that. When was that shown?

It happened in epi 2??? I think, though I cant remember the ins and outs of it ....but I remember thinking he was a bit like Kakashi in that respect.

Not a very good answer But I do know we've seen it.

The counter-attack I know we saw in epi 2 when Sion is watching him fight Kiefer.

I remember the counter-attack, but I didn't think of it as a copy of magic used against him situation. I thought it was something he knew how to do but hadn't demonstrated to his classmates yet.

Clearly I should watch the episode again. Not that that's an onerous chore, mind you.

Oh.
So that's what all his mumbo-jumbo was about.
Man, I really missed the boat on that point, didn't I?

Nothing much to say about this episode, apart from that its obviously a setup to a tragedy in the next episode. Which is what I'm looking forward to.

Thing is I knew she hadnt seen Naruto and didnt even think to explain where Kakashi was from Btw yes he is the best character in that universe.

Im definitely thinking there's a reason Feris chose her as her assistant. Im sure there's more to her then simply throwing water on a guy to get info out of him

They really, really should've started the anime off with episode 2, I would think they lost a lot of viewers due to episode 1.

There's quite a good chance the OP will change for the second cour.

26 episodes for 11 volumes? It'll only possible if the contents of those 11 LNs are shorter bt half of those anime I mentioned.
The Good Witch of the West doing 9 novels in 13 episodes says hi.

She sure seemed willing and even eager to move to the nails under the fingernails torture. I agree with Bonta Kun. She scares me.

OT @ Bonta Kun, I have no plans to watch Naruto. Tried it for some episodes and decided it wasn't for me. I'll remain blissfully ignorant of that particular universe.
