Gotta ask, but do they still care about the room? Maybe I missed something but they never said anything about another truce and they just stopped playing games altogether. Do they not care anymore? Yurika I get since the danger's passed for now/the others are willing to help her in fighting and Theia can just tell them to play along and pretend to be her subjects in the room, but what about mole-girl? She still needs the room's power and Koutarou ain't giving it to her.

Also, where are Yurika's parents? Sanae's are mentioned - possibly deceased or left her - and the other two are likely in space/underground. Yurika on the other hand has enough money to get into school but for whatever reason is forced to squat in Koutarou's closet and eat instant noodles. Does she not have parents or other relatives taking care of her? Don't they take issue with her presumably dropping out of school to be a magical girl?

Did't yurika said that she didn't contact them or trying to hide what she's doing to them. Maybe to her parents she's just having a normal high school girl life but the truth is she become a mahou shoujo. Which is also probably another why she doesn't have money. She probably run away from home or her parents didn't send her enough allowance to live on her own. Probably because they thought she lives in a dorm.

No wonder Yurika played the horse while Koutaro and Sakuraba played the hero and the heroine.

Lets pick the motivations of the factions one by one. The Earth faction wants Room 106 because it used to be a shrine of theirs. Their technology is a combination of magic and technology. So it is a possible power source. Magical Girls see Room 106 as a source of great ancient magic. But as seen they can't harness its full power. Yurika is there to protect it. Maki to control it. Theia was sent to gain the allegiance of the being residing in the location pointed out by the computer as a trial of leadership.

Given these facts Koutaro is the key to the power of Room 106. It isn't about taking the room by itself but gaining his loyalty.

Kiriha and her rival faction does not realize they need Koutaro for their plans. Yurika is there to protect the room but does not realize all she needs to protect is Koutaro. Maki has pieces of the puzzle but hasn't completed it yet. Theia does not have a clue about the power of Koutaro and Room 106, and that he could be the reincarnation of the Blue Knight.

I think all the factions were once one people that got split. Now their representatives are gathering around Koutaro in an unexpected reunion.
Come to think of it... Isn't Kou the reason why Sanae exists... Her form might have been tapping to whatever he is or was...

But Sanae has been around in room 106 much longer than Koutarou has. I'm sure she's connected to him in a similar way he is connected to all the other girls (including Harumi and the landlady), but I'm not sure if you can claim she actually owes her existence to him in the sense that without him, she wouldn't have existed at all, as I haven't really seen any evidence to support that claim.

Maybe she needs the room's magic to stay in her ghostly form, but Maki draining the room's magic in episode 8 didn't seem to have any effect on Sanae, so even that is doubtful right now.

The only way to know for sure is by learning more about Sanae, and I'm not sure if the anime will delve deeper into her past when there are only two episodes left to go by the time Kiriha's arc ends (assuming she too needs two episodes to get some development).

Did Maki actually drain any significant amount of magic? I thought she was just trying to decipher it at that point, and only ended up taking a small bit of it once she was done.

Just as you said she only got minuscule fraction of it. She identified it as ancient Forsarian magic.

I think the Forsarian kingdom may have its roots with the Fortorthe empire. The Blue Knight is a historical legend in Fortorthe. That includes the Earth people as they had a shrine at the same place.

I was wondering how that Beetle could possibly block Ruth's attack, so that's how. Funny how the episode suddenly turned into a sort of giant robot attack.

So this season/series probably ends next week? After this episode, none of the "invasions" are really urgent, especially for Kiriha the status quo suits her. Glad she got the final blow in instead of Koutarou, harems where the girls need to keep being saved are cliche by now. And Koutarou seems to be leveling up with how he's wielding that sword. Heh, I always love funny responses to "Who are you people?!", with Koutarou's answer being "My invaders and landlord!". And said landlord easily smashing robots left and right.

Its already obvious that Kiriha's first love is right in front of her. Now I want to know is when she'll able to realize that its him all along.

I really like Koutarou as an Character.
Dunno how to explain in...
But, He's dense in an certain way that doesn't make it look like he's ''Ignoring'' their feelings for him.

Dunno how to say it in English but, he was quite fast on the track when he knew what Kirihara was doing in Episode 10.

Yea... Sorry for this vague explanation.


Man I wish I could reald the LN, but its not Translated, or atleast I couldn't find it yet.

Ep 11

Hmm ... well, not so bad. I was glad to see that Kiriha was not double crossing - makes everything shown up to now a little more consistent. Nice to be clearer about her motive too. Though the confrontation speech about understanding things like roller coasters to effectively invade the surface were kinda ... silly.

Was also surprised to suddenly see the Earth invasion folks' mecha looking doll thingee pop up. Jack-o was it's name or something?

But yes - Yurika is a fantastic support chara in combat. Proves herself again and again. Even in the final self destruct sequence attempt.

did Kiriha finally admits that Koutaro and her first love the same? the scene where Koutarou said that they are friends and Kiriha paused and said Koutaro is her only friend and best friend is surface made me think that Kiriha thinks Koutarou and the guy in her past is the same.

Next episode anime original ending?

No, she doesn't remember his face or name. But he said the same thing the Blue Knight did coming from another time and place and Kiriha remembers Onichan saying that.

I think the Kabuto card is a hint at time travel ala Bamboo leaf rhapsody. Theia did detect temporal distortions around the same time Clan arrived.

I liked the ghost's role in this. I really like her possession stuff she does. First time I remember seeing her throw those spirit fire around.

Yurika once again saves the day.

For an Earth People guy, this dude sure defaults to a surface tool to try to achieve his goal with that pistol of his.
