But Zessica is the one with the physical powers and her mannerisms tend to be more like Silvia. Mikono is either the heart or the soul, not the body. What Kagura is smelling may be the soul of the person rather than their physical smell.

Mannerisms like Sylvia? Neither of them are anything like Sylvia as neither of them are abusive tsunderes with obsessions over a brother.
And powers come from the soul/personality, not the body.

What I mean is that she is more of the warrior type when compared to Mikono.

Well that's rather vague, though. Mix is a pretty brutal warrior, I mean we've actually seen her physically fight Andy and kick his ass. Warrior could just as easily be Celianne, Sylvia, Touma, Apollo, Apollonius, or any number of other characters.

that whole talk about guys picking sweet girls like mikono being said so that it can be changed in the end? fighting for them and protecting them etc

something like how andy was saying he is triggering death flags by confessing.

there were 2 or 3 tropes in this episode that need to be broken, will kawamori's anime do it?

as for zessica being a warrior that is what she wants to believe she is. even in the preview she states it. she wants to believe it but in the end she is fragile just like silvia/reika/celiane etc

That wouldn't explain the heartache.

As for Kagura, his nose seems to work on a metaphysical level. Unless we admit Amata is indeed a creepy creature that doesn't smell at all.

My thoughts are almost the same that they are showing Reika and Silvia(their images are very similar to them) and they show the OVA's Island, lake, forest where Reikia and Silvia meet Apollo. The whole episode was about these two girls bond. I can only think one thing Zessica is Reika.

Zen this episode gave me vibes of Toma again.

The only reason i don't think zessica is reika is because of the ED picture. reika has nothing to do with book of genesis. also, the writers do tell us that some of pictures represent past selves while some represent future things to happen.

Considering this show is supposed to be a stand alnone and that the flashbacks haven't shown anything about Reika, she's a non factor in the reincarnation mess.

So far her ED image only shows her current development.

Good catch:

Things we know they met in battle outside Atlandia and somehow fell in love under the Tree of Life. Now we get the symbolic implication that it was Otoha's fault.

Probably so she can have Touma all to herself.

Which bring to question if Otoha reincarnated in this era. Wild speculation is that Otoha is reincarnated in Shrade given their musical attributes.

This episode :

So there is a part of the wings of Sun in the golden robot and another part somewhere else. Probably Amata (ditto Kagura who recognized him as such in episode 1), but Mikage hasn't noticed it yet.

The part of the wings of the sun is a reference to the segment of the original aquarion's arm as it used the mugen punch at the very end. The other part is obviously elsewhere because of how extensive the range of mugen punch is.

But the wording and scenes are ambiguous on purpose so that the other part being amata could also be a possibility.

Details are slipping out from the BDs, I have no idea how valid this is at the moment. My BD copy won't be in for a while... yay international shipping:

Spoiler for Stuff:

I'll add more as it comes out.

[SPOILER="Stuff"]Ace of Hearts ~ ShuShu
King of Hearts ~ Mikono
If you considere that Chouchou is the honest manifestation of Mikono's feelings, it kinda makes sense.

This episode highlighted the fact Mikono isn't a really honest person in regard of her being unable to openly express her feelings (something she envies Zessica over).
