I think Hazake has been pretty honest and I can't see her as particularly manipulative. Anything circumspect concerning her powers or current position is something I think she's not fully aware of rather than something she's simply keeping from the main duo to manipulate them.

Aika is a bit harder to say. It is possible she's manipulative but it's also possible that she acts the way she does because she's possibly in the same boat as Shun from Shin Sekai Yori in that she simply knows more but can't say.

It's also possible that she knew nothing of magic.

She must have known that something was off about Mahiro's feelings for her. But it's not exactly a secret that he has a loose screw.

so Hakaze is the real threat to the world, her clan is the one trying to save it...? if the 2 heroes know this, i think they will have different reactions, Mahiro most likely side with her to continue his revenge but Yoshino may not

next one we can see more of the Aika Mahiro Yoshino triangle

well shes not the one going around turning whole cities full of plp to stone, calling her the bad guy just for one statement made by a character seems pretty far out to me

Considering the title is called xxx the civilization blaster and that the tree consumes products of civilization it may not be too far off. Or more likely neither side are good and both should be eliminated.

It’s hard to describe just what ZnT is, but it’s definitely quite unlike anything else that’s aired for a while. It reminds me a lot of the glory days of the early 2000s, when BONES was doing indecipherable but fascinating epics and Gonzo was adapting all kinds of interesting source material in even more interesting ways. In a sense this is a sort of hybrid of Rahxephon-era BONES and shows like Gankutsuou – not as good as either of those shows, but closer to that than anything airing now. Of course it fits many other molds better than anime at all – there’s the obvious Shakespeare connection and the dramatic style is, for lack of a more elegant phrasing, almost like a spoken-word opera. But more than anything I’m put in mind of a Greek tragedy with the intricate family complications and sense of impending betrayal – and of course Shakespeare based many of his plays on Greek tragedies.

I feel bad for that Mahiro guy. He' been tircked by his step sister and childhood friend.

The plot makes its as these two friends are destined to kill each other. Mahiro looks very angry. If the angry look can kill people... At least, the story doesn't suggest any yaoi element. Some viewers actually showed concern about it. Instead, the feeling of NTR atmosphere is heavy. So heavy, it's hard to breath.

Now, that ghost magician got to think something. She has to save herself as well as saving the world.

Very well put. Agreed! I've quickly caught up to episode 5 once I started watching this show. The pacing is so very good. I'm not sure if any other show from the Fall 2012 season comes even close to what ZT has done so far in term of the pacing. There haven't been many shows where it managed to capture my attention to the story when there was so little of it like ZT. I usually get impatient, but that hasn't been the case with this show so far. I'm actually quite content at waiting for the mystery to unravel all by itself. I hope it can keep at it!

And this week we get relatively uninteresting anime original episode, I still felt even that it feels much more uninteresting compared to what was before, it still managed to somewhat capture me to watch it.

Lots of flashbacks in this episode.
It was nice watching Yoshino and Aika's school days.
Mahiro is pretty much the same always.
Riding a bike through the fields of sunflowers was a nice cliche.
Kinda reminded me of a visual novel I once played.
Well, nothing much happened this time.

Episode 7 was an anime original!!!!? Wow! I enjoyed it tremendously. The 20 mins just flew by. This scriptwriter is ridiculous for the way every piece of dialogue is strewn together. Literally a poetry in motion. I'm pretty sure I'll be ordering the DVD's for this show.

Well yeah, my opinion might be kinda biased anyway as I have read the manga, it's still very good anime original episode I have to give bones that.

I just have to accept how much this show ties in various Shakespeare plays and themes, even though I am not a fan of the guy's work. It's just whenever they start quoting Hamlet or something, the music tends to get a little bit ridiculous. Everything else so far has been quite great in my opinion, especially Mahiro and Yoshino's relationship. Truly yin and yang Plus that KanaHana ED...hnnnngh.

That was another great episode. I really just love seeing the trio interact with one another. So many double meanings packed into one episode...

This show has an amazing ability at ramping up the tension. You really get the feeling that doomsday is coming and it's just poetically ironic that it's not because of the literal threat to the entire world.

Well, the start of the episode (the continuation of Aika and Mahiro flashback) and the scene where Aika and Mahiro talk about how Yoshino's gf should be did happen in the manga.

I've liked the anime-original scenes. Mahiro is such a cockblock.

Is it confirmed if it will have 1 cour? If so, 5 episodes left and 10 chapters to adapt the whole confrontation with Samon and add an anime original ending which means that my favorite character won't appear in the anime

the more i watch the more I'm convinced that Aika is pulling an Aizen here. There's just something not right about her. We don't even know why she's in Mahiro's family to begin with
