Hakaze doing some time traveling again.
This time to try and find Aika's killer.
She's really determined to solve the mystery of Aika's death.
Hakaze probably wants it resolved so Yoshino could get over it.
Looks like Aika wasn't just an ordinary girl.
So she was the mage of Exodus. Now I get why she's dead.

This show is quickly back to it's awesome self. It was actually easily predictable but Aika's reveal was still packed full of sheer awesomesauce.

Damn.. I was not expecting her to be the Mage of Exodus. Of course when she shows up on the roof all calm and collected we knew she had to a mage.. Just not the Mage of Exodus.

Now that makes me wonder was she killed by Hakaze? After all she was found at home in her chair with numerous cuts. She isn't a nice person either she immediately attacks Hakaze not even caring why Hakaze spoke in past tense about her. That makes it seem she really has no interest in Yoshino or Mahiro at all as if someone spoke about your boyfriend in past tense you would want to know why but she doesn't even blink an eye and instead just attacks Hakaze.

my guess would be:
Aika committed suicide in order to propel the events in the future. Now that Hakaze is back to the past, once she find out about this truth, she will realize she can't do anything. Aika have to die, be it suicide or killed by Hakaze, so as to make the events in the future happen. With no means of communication with the future, im guessing Hakaze will lose the battle and her bones will be placed back in the island(somehow) and none of the guys in the future will know about Aika's true identity.

people need to remember that this is an adaptation from manga, so a lot of plot set up are from the mangaka himself/herself, not Okada

there's no way that'll happen. IF Hakaze was going to die, it certainly wouldn't be without being able to tell Yoshino goodbye. For everyone in the present to be left in the dark as to what happened to Hakaze just isn't the style of this show.

It'll be more interesting on the motive of Aika's suicide, assuming she killed herself.

I disagree with you all.

I hope she didn't kill Hakaze and used her corpse as a body double...

But no, Hakaze should be alright - she has to bring her skeleton back to the island for Samon to collect.

I thought Tree of Genesis magic was supposed to be for protection and killing people was not allowed, so why does Hakaze leaves the possibility of her murdering Aika?

Because she is the mage of Exodus? Also, we know, that Aika was killed by someone from Kasukabe clan.

There is also a possibility of Aika forcing Hakaze into killing her, sort of comitting a suicide. In a way

I absolutely loved the adaptation this time around, they made sure Aika really shined! I absolutely adore her, squeeee! Her brief Sherlock Holmes scene was baffling.

It broke my heart during the last several minutes, especially when Hakaze found Aika, it made me like Hakaze alot more considering I find her annoying to a point. The manga didn't even make me sad or like Hakaze at all, and for the anime to do so is really something for me. I think they actually would be somewhat friends if Aika had lived, you know...not including the fact they love the same guy.

Aika > Hakaze; in terms of romance and strength...and alot of other things.

This episode answered MOST of the questions. Aika's main motivation is her love towards Yoshino and Mahiro which I find endearing.

As for the anime-added scenes I found it a little strange that they had Hakaze walk to Aika right before Aika punched her, since in the manga Aika 'flew' from the top to punch Hakaze when she lost her momentarily cool because of Hakaze making Yoshino cry. They also didn't include the scene where Aika buttons up Hakaze's shirt. WHY?

OH, next episode will make Hanemura more....great. If he hones up his skills, he could be Aika-Strong or even surpass her.

Interesting how Aika and Hakaze were getting along.
So Hanemura is just a replacement Mage of Exodus.
So they're stuck in a loop.
Maybe the only way to break it is to stop Aika from killing herself.
Aika vs Hakaze + all the explanations was interesting.
Looks like Hakaze failed miserably. They'll need another way out of this mess.

Is the ending preview hinting at what I think it is going to happen!?

Goddamned trees. No matter how many Miyazaki films I've watched, I always knew we couldn't trust them.

Good grief! Aika completely stole the show. She outclassed Hakaze in every single category imaginable this episode. If Hakaze is top tier, than Aika is a broken, god-tier character. Remember the scene where she ripped that barrier open with her bare hands? So sexy. Not as awesome as the giant sword she materialized on the roof, but more impressive than the dual-wielding swords. I also love the fact she punched Hakaze instead of slapping her.

My my... Aika turned out to be quite the catch. It's no wonder why Yoshino and Mahiro could never let her go.

It was indeed Aika who kills herself as i have been thinking since the beginning. Like how Aika punched Hakaze for making Yoshino cry. Very interesting of how Aika thought of her relationship with the guys. In the end she takes her own life to save the future of the Mahiro and Yoshino.

wonderful episode,...that insight shows how great people they are all 4 of them, and explains the strength of mahiro & yoshino even without powers. Aika shows what Mahiro & yoshino meant to her, now she's no longer just scary (well she still is with all that power & insight) but now you see the heart behind her actions. yeah I feel Aika & Hakaze would have been great friends (they do share the same taste in men don't they ), but all that's left now is for the remaining three to defeat the ToG, with Aika giving them the much needed push from the past.

anyway it's kinda unfair though to compare Hakaze & Aika's power level since as Aika said it's a limitation put in by the trees themselves.

Aika ended up being Alia Atreides, which does explain why that possibility (suicide) can actually work, plus she's quite the cool customer.

Hakaze dead end up trying to kill Aika, though, but for a completely different set of reasons. Great wrap up to that part of the story, especially the ending bits under the credits. On to the final story arc.

Wow. Aika Fuwa. BAMF of the year.

I remember in the first half of the series as we speculated she was manipulating everything, and even directed her own death, but it was always under the idea that she was the actual Big Bad. The fact that she did all that without being the Big Bad just makes her that much more ridiculously awesome of a character. Though, to be honest, I'm still sort of hoping she's playing everyone, and even this whole interaction with Hakaze is just a play and she's actually even more layers ahead of everyone than it seems. I don't think she is, but the letter to be given after everything is done, gives me a small bit of hope.
