Will this have action, or will they be going back to talking about writing philosophies and making changes?

Titles and actual previews have been misleading since the show started, so it's impossible to tell at this point.

From my guess, I think it's going back to talking again. It's probably more on the identity of our MUP and Souta still holding valuable information. The other parts are probably how they're going to upgrade our hero and heroines with new powers as they seem to be getting their ass handed to them every fight.

Considering where the last episode ended, there'll probably be some amount of fighting.

*shrugs* Yeah, but probably only for a few minutes. If the previous episodes are of any indication it'll be brief, but good. I'm either betting that Yuya shows up again to save the day or the JDSF might actually pull another surprise appearance.

Here's what we know for sure. These scenes must at the very least take place after episode 5. They do not however not need to have taken place after the evening episode 6 ended on. It's much too early (though entirely within the realm possibility) to kill off any of the creations not even half way into the series.

So the most likely response to the debacle of their little peace keeping mission is a team meeting. Perhaps another attempt at character revision for Celestia. They've certainly been building up to it. She's not won a single fight with another creation on her own and Meteora is only slightly better than an outright liability. Keep in mind all Blitz has to do is use just one of his gravity bomb bullets and she's as good as done. Unless she comes up with a way of dealing with that, and he's there, she's worthless. It has been made crystal clear at this point that Celestia and Meteora are woefully unqualified to actually stop the other creations from doing pretty much whatever they want so unless they address that in a hurry things are going to go south real quick.

Let's assume the scene with Meteora and Aki does indeed take place some time after the fight of the evening of episode 6. This would mean Mamika “defeated” Blitz in the sense that she was able to “stop him” as she puts it and succeeded in protecting Meteora from him. Everything in that whole fight from the point of her “betrayal” of sorts hinges on Mamika's success insofar as all of the creations especially those on team government coming out of it alive.

It is made clear in episode 6 that Blitz shows no mercy to those that stand against them in his attempt to kill Meteora when she could no longer defend herself and Mamika is now openly standing in their way as well. Do you think if she were put in the same position Meteora was in Blitz would not also attempt to finish her off too?

Episode 7 will for sure cover the following. The allegiances of all the characters as a result of the most recent fight. Will it be water under the bridge as Mamika decides to keep hanging with Team Altair or perhaps she'll pull a Yuuya by flying solo for a while as she tries to find herself. What will Makagami do? Will Alice just let her go? Remember she was trying to kill her before Celestia intervened. The good guys were trying to find/apprehend her too.

They also need to actually discuss Makagami in depth. There are characters in both main factions that either want her dead or captured and so far none of them have any idea what her powers are and how they work. Funny thing being because creations are the only ones that have encountered her in either faction (and lived to tell about it), none of them know where she's from. Hopefully Sota or one the creators can figure it out with a description from them. The bad guys are either too stupid to realize they can just look up pretty much everything about her from or just plain don't care.

That's the funniest part of the I wonder what the new creation is like conversation. Altair must have wanted it to be a surprise because she very easily could have just told them it's X from Y. Here's her Wiki page. Here's a copy of her LN, etc. Alice is so stupid the fact that she can look up that kind of information for every creation she meets in this world will likely never cross her mind. Wait. Does she even know that's a thing? Knowing her she'd probably still fall for her lie paradox power even if she knew exactly how it worked and all of it's flaws. That said there had better be a lot more to Makagmi than that one abiltiy or you'd need to write everyone after her as juggling the idiot ball.

Digital-drawn art, nice!

I've noticed how detailed the clothing designs are for the manga characters as opposed to anime. Like the gold trim patterns on Celestia's skirt and stockings and Meteora's cloak, or that Princess/Altair's skirt has metal plates sewn on them (also the metal plate trims).

Nothing particularly worthwile this week, they get sidetracked a few times when talking about Mamika and there are a couple comments about the design in general, but overall nothing important.

We get a nice meta conversation between Rui and Yuya who really hit it off. Free of the constraints of their respective plots, the creations are developing new characteristics. Mamika confronts Souta about MUP's real plans with an eavesdropping Magane. Souta confesses that he is related to her while the rest of the gang meet up and discover MUP's origins.

I'm glad that Souta not telling anyone about the MUP would be the main issue in extending the series. That trope annoys me to bits.

Heh, ufotable cafe

I'm liking our fluffy magical girl a lot more. To a large degree, this sort of thing is rather in-character for her. Meanwhile, Souta-kun sure isn't genre smart, but oh well. Some things are easier said than done...

Altair....interesting name for the Military Uniform Princess.

I still wonder what side Mamika plans to fight on after her talk with Sota. Either way, I think the buildup this week was somewhat interesting although I'm really curious to see what that Magane girl will do next. She is so unpredictable and in fact, one of the most dangerous characters so far (perhaps only behind Altair herself).

I also wonder how Sota came up with the conclusion that Altair hates the world they are in right now.

Souta's conclusion is likely based on whatever occurred in the Souta- Setsuna relationship back then - one significant enough for Altair to lump him as part of the world that betrayed Setsuna.

I'm surprised the plot made Nakanogane find out about Altair's existence through his own research - other series would've used the cliche of Souta exclusively telling the others he knows Altair, after keeping quiet about her for like half the series's run.
