I have a feeling there is yet more girls to add to the harem.. But I'm wrong here well if you add the entire academy, then that is indeed a large harem but Houki winning with how far Charlotte has gotten, then a miracle event must occur then

Oh there will be more girls... US and Russia reps I believe are more or less confirmed, as well as the Phantom Task leader?

But I reckon the rest of the academy is just calafare.

Random thoughts on the episode.

The battle was a little disappointing. Not bad, the CG is actually pretty good, but it wasn't as awesome as I'd dared hope.

Shut up Ichika. Just shut up; please. I know harem leads are often undeserving, but it's been a while since I actually despised the main lead.

More Charlotte screentime! Every second with her on screen is gold, GOLD. Hanazawa Kana is always brilliant, but she's outdone herself here. Cutest character in eons. Looking forward to Charlotte "serving openly" from now on.

Bold Laura. That was pretty unexpected. "You're going to become my *wife*?" That's pretty funny.

It would be quite a disappointment if Ichika went for other girls other then Charlotte, especially with what feat they already went through together. It would also make the Charlotte fans sad if her screentime was now replaced for Cecilia, Houki, or Rin, I don't know about Laura since she apparently is now popular as well. But indeed, Laura surprised me with that sudden *wife* incident.

Charlotte fans shoud be aware she is just another haremette and now it is Laura's turn to hold the spotlight for a while, then the anime shall (hopefully) return to balanced screentime between all five girls.

Sadly, going by the unwritten law of Anime, Ichika X Charlotte is unlikely.

This law has been truthful in many animes so it would be quite tough for the anime to take another direction from this law. But if they don't follow this law, then they will merely just keep the harem around for comical situations.

But Houki might have some interesting development that will make people love her as well.

I kind of find it hilarious that Charlotte's swimsuit resembles a hazard sign. It's almost like she's genre-aware of what would happen if Ichika is exposed to her in a swimsuit for extended periods of time.

Well, Charlotte is hazardous material, so I find it quite appropriate for her to wear a swimsuit with this pattern. This way, nobody can complain in case she does something out of the blue (or rather something happens to her and Ichika out of the blue), because you're supposed to be on alert in direct proximity to hazardous substances XD

Charlotte really knows what she's doing. Laura's bumbling around, but the bluntness is refreshing.

Too bad for the rest. When Old War Enemies ally, this epic is born! :3

I would expect a harem ending of sorts anyway tbh... but who knows, the novels are still in single figures.. the author might have noted the extreme popularity of Charlotte... I would think the novels are at a stage where this influence could happen.. (and this is not an invitation for novel readers to pop in and agree/disagree)

Unfortunately, my thoughts exactly. As much as I love Charlotte and want her to win, it's obvious that Houki is the main girl here just like Index is the main of Toaru Index, Naru was the main of Love Hina, etc. And it's only rarely that the main girl doesn't win.

I'll be pleasantly surprised if I'm wrong, but I'm not counting on it; we're either going to get an open ending or a Houki ending. More likely the former if there isn't going to be a season 2, since this series is only going to be 12 episodes if I recall correctly. (not much time to solidify Houki as the winner of the harem)

Wait, did Ichika finally healed his wounds after the attack? I mean where's the blood during the bath scene? I think they probably healed him off screen to me.
