Watching the latest episode reveals almost everything about who is pulling the strings (the archbishop of the Ulga Sorority). Looks like DT's party and ED's followers are all Hyperions. As for Alma Flora, she is just called the mysterious woman. DT sure got desperate about getting his wish fulfilled to be a man. Had to laugh at the gigantic gumball machine housing Hyperion weapons in plastic balls with the gang trying to turn the knob, until Kon says that it needs money to get them.

I think Kon's been played, he's definitely not getting any... or at the very least it won't be 'her'. But really, if he can really become a hero in this world, girls would fall over his feet anyway.

Wow, we have a plot! I kind of forgot there was supposed to be one.

Poor ED, he's getting more and more pathetic. XD;; I kind of hope he'll find some sort of happiness by the end... XD;; (Maybe he'll finally manage to make his, ahem, Erec stand up...)

By the way, I wonder about Gustave. So he's the same in Incognito as Pet is in Kon's group? He seemed to have talked to Alma Flora in the preview for this episode, but then he didn't talk to her now... Or maybe he was talking to someone else? I hope the next episode will shed some light on that.

As for Alma Flora, she said Alma Flora was just her nick, so she must be another player, or a developer or something.

And the Sailor Moon reference was awesome. XD

For ED, that means going up against the archbishop and the sorority he worked for when his group Incognito was blindly following them. He really needs to cheer up and realize his group has been used like pawns.

Kon seems really desperate for getting some, but he seems to get trolled every time. He thinks he is finally getting what he wants from the mysterious woman. Of course, Kon still needs a way to get into Olvidia since the place is sealed.

I wonder if both groups will start to work together against the archbishop, Ulga Sorority, and those mass-produced Hyperions (weird name) to prevent another war. Yeah it's a cliche in a RPG to save the world from a madman bent on taking over the world for his own purposes.

????:' go to olvidia'
Kon: "by the way how do I get to olvidia`?'
Flora: 'Forget about it its sealed off at the moment!'

Actualyl we saw it being destroyed...
That is referring to the city. And considering how much she already toyed with kon, and is still doing it (nice safe btw, Sanglain lol), as well as the Anime's running gag I'm starting to think she wasn't realyl referring to the city but herself.

And yes the princess pretty much said it, Kon is pretty naive to trust 'Flora' even slightly.
The last sentence as well as the entire journey became one thing as soon as we have been shown that there is teleportation magic: Meaningless.

So why all the trouble? She could have just beamed him to her base the entire time.
As for my theory: She is trying to revive the Ixion and is using the people of incongnito as well as Kon's team for it. She didn't teleport him because he might have found out so she kept Kon's ability to sneak around her base at a bare minimum.
A hint for this is btw that Kon was the only one who was always observed by her while he was on the base, while the other's where just lead into the room.

He needs to "stand up" lol. That would help restoring his self-confidence... XDDD

Okay so now we know why ED was trying to stop the princess from marrying because he thought it would bring peace, but really it was the opposite.

Now he is conflicted over being a knight and staying loyal or fighting for peace. My head is starting to spin.

But why should he be loyal to a group that betrayed him?

I am thinking about this too seriously

In the name of the moon and the gashaphon of weapons was the best.

I have a theory that Alma Flora is the personification of Olvidia. Therefore, the question is irrelevant, as Kon has already been face to face with Olvidia.

Up to that moment I thought the place Mysterious Woman took them to was actually Olvidia...

Universe's largest Gachapon. That was pretty hilarious. Plus, tons of references with the power ups. Be curious to see someone that knows all of them.

Well, most can be easily found:
- Shaingain > Saint Seya, Cygnus Sain...actually Cat saint
- Aura alma power up > DBZ, especially when it's knight crew turn
- Ecarlate > Sailor Moon obviously
- Mariandel trans-power > sentai reference? There are too many possible anime/sentai using this stance

However, I am surprised they did the gashapon gag, because it's almost a nasty poke at "pay to win" mmo with all those mini transactions, and considering Ixion is one of them...

Remember, this is an advertisement for the MMO. And the production staff already apologized to Capcom for what ended up happening. The intentional insults to themselves is very much intended.

Ok, watching this episode now seems to point out old school anime. Variation as City Hunter and the preview shows the Big Dipper and the Death Omen Star from Fist of the North Star (of course this could mean an epic final battle).
