Fun episode, with lots of good fight scenes

So I've been right about my "Medusa" thesis. That "Algol" ex-demon-lord really was a lot like Medusa. Snake-like hair, attacking with snakes, and of course turning everything into stone, Medusas main power.

It was still no match for Izayoi, who really trashed it
Not even its super power could save it.

There was one enemy though that Izayoi couldn't properly deal with, that guy with the invisibility helmet that couldn't be sensed. Without help from You's echolot, he wouldn't have been able to defeat him, so he *isn't* all-powerful after all.

Really like Izayoi's taste at the end - maid's skirts have to be short, otherwise it's just boring!

You need to touch up on your mythology. Algol is associated with the Gorgon in the Greek tradition. Medusa was just one of the three Gorgon sisters.

The anime is rather accurate about their information on Algol though

You guys are missing IzayoixJin

Btw, since we have seen a constellation motif in the story, how likely do you think that at some point there will be enemy generals/societies named after the astrology constellations (gemini, pisces, etc, etc)?

Realize that the tag here are all completely edit-table by members and are not any solid indication of what the series is.

Good anime adaptations seem to spawn pretty massive LN sales. The LN sales over previous years normally reflect huge spikes when they get an adaptation. Probably minus SAO, since it already sold so well.

Then again, One Piece was already the best selling Manga of all time when it went on a massive back catalog sales surge (to the tune of several million copies of Vol 1-5) when the Marineford arc went big. So, even super popular works can get huge sales bumps from popular adaptations.

You need to touch up your mythology as well
The other two Gorgon sisters were the immortal Stheno and Euryale. Only Medusa was mortal, and Medusa was also the one that was defeated by Perseus. Just like in the myths, it was the head of Medusa which the leader of Perseus was using. Therefore, "Medusa " would've been a much better name than "Algol". Besides that:

We didn't see any (attempted) "death by decapitation", so that didn't fit. She only attacked him with her snake hair, her petrification attack, with hand-to-hand combat, and with the super-beam fired from her mouth, which he shattered. At no point did she try to chop of rip his head off.

Wow, even on several places in the Top Ten (6., 7., 8., 10, 12, 13.). Seems to be really popular. I wonder why they shortened it from regular 12/13 episodes to only 10, if it's that popular?
Well, at least that means there's a good chance for a secon season.

Many of the other titles don't ring a bell with me though, only: Accel World (1.), Rou-Kyuu-Bu (3.), To aru Majutsu no Index - New Contract (9.) and Sao (16.).
The rest, however...

2. Strike the Blade
4. Sugar x Sugar x Honeymoon
5. The working Demon Lord
11. Turmeric of the moonless Dawn
14. Toutou Soul Withers
15. Celebrated Musician Girl
17. The fierce fighting Dragon, blooming of the Dr.
18. The Love Guidance of the Strawberry Princess and the stubborn Knight
19. Nights & Magic
20. Rapidfire King Fourth series

Dude, it's right there in front of you; Algol is referred to as "the Gorgon of Perseus".

As in you know, Perseus' Gorgon? Or the Gorgon that Perseus owns?

And since they're using the Constellation Perseus as the theme, of course they would use Algol, the star in that constellation.
