Either way, it's even worse than I thought but that just makes him more awesome at the same time.
Yes he can

I finally made time to watch the episode (finals suckkkkk). The amount of details in this episode is overwhelming.

First up, the 3 consecutive scenes that almost brought me to tears.
Spoiler for 11:
  • Toori is a great character, he's so simple yet not. He just wants to confess to a robot. Even here he's not totally serious (yet totally is), but I just love this guy. He has been practicing his whole life literally just for this. Since the story isn't told from his head, we probably will never know what he thinks, but man the burden. I don't think besides omnipotent characters, there is not a single person who cannot feel (as opposed to does not) sadness for their entire life starting 8 (only time he cried with Kimi).
  • Asama is the only osananajimi of the two. She's arguably the only one besides Kimi that knows the full contract detail (recall back to Episode 9 on the stairs). Think about it from her perspective, Toori is not immortal even after practicing all these years. Just less than a day ago this guy was emo-ing that Horizon got taken, and now she basically had to sign a death note for one of her best friend. Her responsibility as both one of closest friend and as the contractor must be guilt tripping her like crazy at this point. If you can't tell by Hanami's expression earlier, you can clearly tell she's barely holding on here.
  • Finally Kimi. Once again, best sister of all year every year. She only cried once with her stupid brother, and both are basically so similar in every single way. If there's anyone who knows Toori the best at this point that person has to be Kimi. That all knowing smile is just too beautiful, yet so hauntingly transient. Only person to be completely unfazed by one of the most ridiculous contract ever.
Thankfully the episode ended on good notes, the beginning parts are pretty badass but also depressing. Kawakami's just brilliant at drawing your emotion.
The rest are just smaller things, but two in particular are wonderful.

I died laughing when I saw that thing rocketing off in the distance with the BGM kicking in, you guys should know who that is by now hahaha.

Then there's this one:

Remember the very first practical lesson of the story? Isn't it nice your students actually learn from a [occasionally] extremely, competent teacher?

All in all, extremely pleased with the episode.

The details regarding Hanami also struck me, considering the extent of the contract is nothing to laugh at. If the mouse representing the God responsible for such contract is nearly in tears, you bet things are going ugly should the contract is breached.
Looking back with previous episodes make things even more sense with all the foreshadowing around.

Man, I was actually wondering why they bothered to animate some random plume of smoke, until Ukky showed up out of freakin' nowhere and smacked Galileo right on the horn. And right when he did that I was just all whoaaaaaaaa he was listening to Oriotorai!

Neito's entrance was awesome. Lol the Pope vs Masazumi. That's quite a contract Toori went into. Oh man thought Futayo would do better.

So Toori made the contract when he was 8years old or something like that but didn't activate it until this episode ?

That was a great episode to tie us over to the big finale. I had been looking forward to Toori's power since episode 1, but this was not what i expected, both the contract and the ability itself. And I thought all the fight scenes were awesomely done. I do agree with last week's being stronger in a way than this one though. I wonder how Futayo's gonna defeat him, hmmm.

Thumbs up

It is the very style of Kyoukai Senjou no Horizon that you do not feel cruel about the war(both in novel and anime), but rather hilarious~

I was surprised by the contract. I can not imagine one loses his life when he is not in good mood...If he is competent of this, he is Kami to some extent.

Futayo Honda seems can not make full use of his her weapon and can not catch up with his father.

Good Job. I always make this mistake because he/she shares the same pronunciation in my mother tongue.

IMO Futayo still lack combat experience and tends to rely on her weapon too much.

Naomasa had about 1/3 of an episode showing off already It's about time Neito did something flashy

she used same strategy and even attack pattern as her father did

I think the only reason, Muneshige can avoid that last attack is because he already fell to/experience the same trick when he fought against his father

agreed, the difference is futayo moves more IMO.
BTW futayo is really a girl right? because I saw 2 mistakes of his/her in this page and that idea suddenly appear in my mind... XD

TBH, I like this ep more than the previous and BD1 even reached rank 10.... and on 9 now

That lecture was way back in Episode 1. It was quite a surprise that they applied what they learned in Oriotorai's lesson in this battle, increasing the significance of the first episode. I loved how Oriotorai smiled after they defeated Galileo, felt like she did a job well done.

I wonder how many people have actually remembered that? Honestly, I have completely forgotten about her lesson until I read that. But that was like 2 months ago for me while it was just 2 days ago for them, so I guess that's understandable.

A certain director had way too much fun with this episode. Considering it's a strip mahjong at the end ... maybe instead of blinding your eyes you would appreciate it a little more .

Another action packed episode. And once again, certain characters received the spotlight

Now it's time to list the badasses of this episode
