Yeah, reading this thread it seems people have noticed the similarity of Tabitha to Nagato, so no need to comment on that. The Staff's "identity" was a lot like how Buffy dispatched a certain minor supervillain in the second season of BtVS, so it would've been cooler if I hadn't been spoiled to that concept.

However, still very excellent. Overall, I'm not sure how I feel about this series, other than that I wish the tone was a bit more serious/professional, as that's how I like plots involving life and death situations in my anime. In any case, I will continue watching!

Sorry about that. I failed you. I take full responsibility.

To make up for my indiscretion, I'll go through this thread, page, by page, by page and pull some images that might work as wallpapers. Click the thumbnail images below for the larger version.





There are a few that might work. A cursory search of the 'Net didn't yield much. The show is fairly new, so a full quiver of wallpapers might be a few weeks away as more wallpaper artists are exposed to Zero no Tsukaima and take time out of their short, measly lives to give us something to stare at.

Other than that, nice episode. I hope the series don't get melodramatic, though. I'd hate it if the series get all lovey dovey, making the comedy level drop a notch.

ep6 is a really good episode. 4 out of a possible 5 stars for me.

someone commented it "felt short"; and I agree. when watching this series it seems like the episode goes by so fast. maybe it's because of that transition effect (the wipe away) they use in between scenes, or the story's just a little fast-paced... not that I'm complaining though.

so, we finally get to learn that Saito is INDEED looking for a way back. he's just not going all angsty/whiny about it. I was a bit surprised when the *slap* occured. it's like he never hesitated (that's a small revenge there!)

Louise was adorable during the dance scene. Tabitha also looked cute while cutting that piece of meat (at least that shows her difference from Yuki. Tabitha seems to have a bigger appetite than out Data Integrity something-something).

too bad no Siesta-Saito scenes though

I can finally see a trace of dere in the previously tsuntsun-overkill L0. Nice to know that she can react with something other than jealousy and denial. Seriously too bad that there's so few eps. Definitely gotta find a novel translation soon
As for the Staff of Destruction,

In anycase, getting a F-4E Phantom II off the ground would be nearly impossible, but megahax nonetheless. Working toilets would be ultrahax, IMO.

I wouldn't be surprised if they have vanished civilizations ZOMG! Atlantis!</sarcasm>
How about the possibility of things being summoned here? Is there some sort of gate where one would have to perform something taboo in order to gain knowledge of it?

Well, I think we will be witnessing some nice "flying" by Saito soon enough, judging by a certain Aircraft popping up in the opening animation.

Question

[Whimsical]
His runes enables him to operate vehicles as well???? Anything that is mechanical? How about an electrical egg-beater? Will it transform into an Egg-Beater of Arse-Whipping +4?

How about butterknives... butterknives can be weapons too, right? Will he become an elite butterknife-throwing ninja? Or maybe forks! Everybody loves fork-throwing!

I'm trying to picture Saito running around with a mechanical butterknife in a society that may not have flush toilets.

Very possibly, this world was held back technologically by its reliance on magic. Only a small group of elites (the nobility) and an even smaller group of rogues have access to magic. Presumably, the commoners make up the vast majority of the population, and their lives must be fairly primitive and unpleasant. I smell a metaphor.

Spoiler for pondering:

It was pretty obvious who was the thief, but i was a bit buffed to see how good saito can handle a bazoka. But finally theres some development. It was a bit cheezy, but louise looked pretty good in that dress in the end of the episode.

His rune doesn't necessarily allow him to operate things mechanical; it allows him to use any type of weapon (at least in the novel; the anime is being inconsistent with this). A butterknife is too dull to be considered a weapon, probably, so it wouldn't activate his rune, I'd imagine.

That's simple; Fouquet saw the rune as it was being discussed by Corbet and Osman before she left the room. The rune meant Gundolf, as it's not a random set of lines but is an actual word/name.
