Another great episode, even greater if you think that they stayed at the same place for the whole episode By the way, how many cours ZnT has? No, ok, joking. But given all the tension of the end of the first cour I don't know how they will go on. Or go back, because given how they are handling time, narrative-wise and even plot-wise, I wouldn't be surprised if the second cour would go back to the past instead of going forward. But this is a mere pointless guess of mine. We need to know first if the world will be destroyed (rebuild) or not. But given all the efforts of Aika and the role of Hakaze supposedly it will not. So the next question would be, will Yoshino reveal to Mashiro his true identity before the end of the first cour? That seems more like a rhetorical question

Anyways, Aika keeps giving her mastermind vibes, like she prepared, "subliminally", Yoshino for this very moment; like she had worked all that time to put him as Mashiro's backup or consience. But for which purpose? to save the world or to save Mashiro?

Oh, forgot to say how good they are in trolling with the previews.

Yeah, no doubt. I put it on repeat after the episode.

Every time I see that skull I'm expecting someone to do that particular Hamlet quote. But at least now we've had The Tempest referred to explicitly.

Samon's expressions of sheer disbelief at how rapidly the situation which he had thought he was on top of had suddenly got totally away from him were priceless. Note that as how the situation changes he moves from the high ground right to the back.

What's past is prologue, indeed!

Well that was more about what Yoshino wanted, he seemed to want to take the high ground for this conversation and to move Samon away from Hakaze's bones. It is amusing though that Yoshino who had been in the background almost all this scene to Mahiro and Samon now forcibly switched Samon to that area.

Maybe this is more adequate for the manga thread (it's merchandise so no spoilers), I've seen announced this butterfly necklace for some time but is Gangan going to give it in one of their issues or is it going on sale on shops?

My reading skills are crap, but I believe the necklace is only obtainable by submitting the application form included in November's Gangan.

Man those two (Mahiro and Yoshino) sure know how to completely change up the situation. It was pure hilarity watching Samon freak out when Mahiro was still more than ready to take the shot. A guy who will destroy the world or sacrifice what he has to in order to get what he wants. Then Yoshino steals the high ground and the attention by figuring some things out. With how Samon is freaking out I assume he's on the right page.

What exactly took two years to set up? Was it awakening the tree or making sure they could recover Hakaze via a very unbelievable method? Even if Samon is willing to gamble, even he wouldn't do something like this without making sure he had a foolproof way to bring Hakaze back to them.

Gutsy move by Yoshino though. Now he can't escape from telling Mahiro about Aika's boyfriend. But in the end it's a risk he had to take and frankly something he was going to tell him about when this was over anyways. So might as well bring it to the forefront of things.

I have a feeling Yoshino's plan is to use time travel and bring the Hakaze to whom they've been talking to the present, rather than reviving the one who died. No idea how, since the only magic we've seen outside of the coconut is barrier and healing, but still.

I didn't know if I was supposed to laugh my ass off at Samon or be stunned at the way Yoshino reversed the situation in such a magnificant and fateful way. Let's just say I was like "holy shit it doesn't make sense but it all makes sense and Yoshino is so bada- *sees Samon's expressions and laughs out loud*"

Next episode looks like a jackpot. Yamamoto x Natsumura ftw! Also I will be undescribably happy if Hakaze will make it back alive and in one piece. She's too bold and sexy to die! I mean, Miyuki Sawashiro is voicing her... come on!

Samon was bluffing. We already knew from the past episodes that he had planned to bring Hakaze back, in case things got out of control.

There might be some magic or something hidden on that island that Samon had prepared to bring Hakaze back.

To Yoshino and Mahiro, Hakaze may be an illusion. To Hakaze, whatever's happening in the future is also an illusion - a possible timeline.

Things can be changed depending on how Hakaze acts from now on. Say, what if she didn't die in the past.

I'm glad they managed to keep the dialogue interesting throughout the episodes. The direction and handling of the flow of the exposition is really well written. I never feel bored while watching this series.

The enigmatic Aika seemed to have predicted her own death too.

This was a fantastically delicious episode.

I'll refrain from ruining myself for what hopefully will be the big reveal next week, and so will only comment on Evangeline:

Am I correct in the insinuation this episode that she's actually a Kusaribe? Possible an unknown (to the family at least), member? Because, if so, it adds yet another dimension to the possible killers of Aika list.

Also, if you're a manga reader, please consider that a rhetorical question. My asking that doesn't mean I want some manga reader or whatever to send me a private message answering me.

What are you basing that from? If it's the fact she could use magic then remember that Yoshino handed a bunch of talismans to her a few eps back.

Someone (Arya was it?) called it last week saying Aika might be from the future and that certainly looks like a good possibility after watching this week's episode.

Those lines at the end - "All of this world's events, all of the living creatures, as well as the ocean, sky, clouds, wind, and sun...
All of that has been put on a scale, and has all been outweighed, by this girl named Aika." was truly epic

oh gee..... supposedly a serious situation but the fact that Mahiro got swayed by the mere fact of who Aika's boyfriend is is just hilarious. It's so ridiculous that it's hilarious....... a bit of a twisted humour since Aika is already dead and the world is about to be destroyed... so weird.
