Anyways, I feel like the changes they made to episodes 1-3 now completely backfired. If Izumi brought Mirai here to kill Akihito in the first place, the whole not being able to kill Youmu because of her past trauma no longer makes sense. They should have just stuck to the original LN characterization, as it fits way better for the storyline they've developed than the anime original Mirari they used for the first arc and sort of conveniently dropped for this current arc.
Spoiler for Izumi intentions speculations:

Web OVAs would be on it (just like Chuunibyou's release).

I doubt he's dead. I think his youmu side is gone while his humanity remains, but that preview though...

Oh.. Damn shame.... I thought it was going free route where it would skip a volume or so.

Based on my knowledge of story structure, drama, tropes, and other similar such things, I will predict with a fair amount of confidence that any death he may appear to suffer at Mirai's hands at this point will not be the last we see of him. As far as I'm concerned his survival isn't really in question at this point. Oh, it's possible that he'll die, but if so they'll find a way to bring him back. The "OMG, is the main character going to die?!!!!1!!1" cliffhanger doesn't really work when you can tell by how the story's built that they're not really going to do it, or at least not at that point.

Another reason to doubt his death is the preview showing Mirai with the black specs that was in the magazine she saw at his place.

wow that's true! I miss that. There's possibility it's a memento tho (will be damn sad if it does"

I doubt he is dying.. I think at least Akihito will be in a coma.

The titles make it sound like they will troll and show 3 different outcomes.

White world he dies but the world is better off
Black world he lives but the world burns
Grey world he lives but the can gets kicked down the road, our closest to happy ending.

Episode 10's summary is earlier in the thread (search by my username). I included it since the other two titles contrast it well. We'll get summaries around next weekend when the monthly news magazines leak out.

wow, things are getting really intense.
Anyway, in the LN, what perspective is it in? Aki, Murais or is it just 3rd person?

Anyway, I guess Murai is really the MC, thinking back, Aki never seemed to have much screentime or dialogue..

It's sad. If Kyoukai no Kanata had done a better job of engaging viewers earlier on, and had done a better job with its major characters, then Episode 9 would have been truly excellent. In a vacuum, it seems like a key episode in a legitimately very good Shakugan no Shana-esque show. But it's let-down by what came before, causing its emotional notes to not ring as true and clear as they otherwise would.

As is, my feelings are similar to Kanon's.

I also would consider it a nice twist if Akihito did die. If nothing else, that would show actual balls and creative courage, which aren't exactly the first thing "KyoAni" makes me think of these days.

But Akihito will likely pull through, of course, so I likewise hope that it has a good explanation, at least.

I can't tell who the biggest douche is anymore, Izumi or that other guy whose name I can't remember.
You mean the antagonist who stole Sakura's staff, I presume? Well, at least he seems to be aware of his douchebaggery, and is reveling in it like a good villain should.

By contrast, Izumi seems much more cold and matter-of-fact about this. She seems to think she's in the right here, whereas the antagonist is just acting selfishly, and he knows it. At some level, I respect a sincere straightforward villain over a manipulative trouble-maker who hurts others while acting high-and-mighty.

He gave it to her in the first place, so it's hard to call it stealing when he took it back.

He smirks too much. I. HATE. THAT. Damned arrogant villain-smile, acting like he knows everything and nothing can ever beat him. HATE. HATE HATE HATE.
