What's with the mid season school life drama?
spoiler[Suzuka] was using those two to the bone..
I was just surprised they let her do it for so long.
spoiler[Kon] was pretty funny to watch this time.
A very silly episode..
Well, it least I had a few laughs this time ^^

So we're all in agreement that Kon is best character? Good.

I demand that there be a comedic spinoff of Kon just constantly failing at everything she does. I will give all my money for that.

I was certain Harutora was going to have some major freakout over that bedmate reveal

Took long indeed. Bakatora~
On another note, I wonder when the most of the characters will find out Natsume is a girl.

Training camp...
They just can't seem to spoiler[get rid of Suzuka] *sigh*
Touji is an interesting guy.
He sure knows how to get what he wants.
I'm glad someone finally managed to spoiler[play Sakura.]
Seems like everyone's stronger than Harutora ^^"
He's such a clueless guy too.
Blind to the truth that's been staring him in the face for so long..

Episode 12

Things I liked about the episode, that Natsume and Harutora were so carefree, but then seeing it spoiler[dashed as they saw Suzuka], and it matched the flashes of what they thought they were leaving behind and the teacher's foreshadowing. Harutora also getting to his senpai in exactly how I wanted him to; by spoiler[using Kon], exactly the right type of smug too. Now I want to spoiler[touch a Kon tail].

Suzuka got caught out on crushing, she was so jelly, not happy that he had/has feelings for Hokuto who she sees through to be Natsume. She seemed happier when she saw that he doesn't see as similar people. Although chances that she has a chance may change now that he has finally realized everything. What I did like about the scenes was that Suzuka was open that she did not want to push as he has someone he likes, and then he was honest.

And hey, they did not go the cliché route that every anime with a hotspring likes to go, especially since she was essentially in the wrong one.

I'm not convinced he's really figured anything out. Unless someone flat out tells him the truth, I think he'll just assume it's a coincidence, since that can't be the only pink ribbon in existence.

I'm caught up in the show now but the entire time it feels like I missed season 1 or something. I know it's based off of a manga/light novel (I think) but i don't think funimation would license it without any of the other media out if it didn't start from the beginning of the story. I seen a summary on their page for the show that gives an explanation to some of my questions but why wasn't that part of the show? I didn't know what made the main character not fit for mage school (the summary said he can't see spiritual energy) I didn't know what the 20 high power mages were. The story just seems to assume I'm supposed to already know. Am I missing something?

The first 3 episodes were great even though some things didn't seem to make sense. since then it's been mediocre. My confusion is probably gonna make me dump the show.

spoiler[Bakatora...
His cluelessness is pretty unbelievable.
Him and Natsume are pretty hopeless.
This lack of realization has been stretched too thin.
Looks like a new plot development has started.
Thiat Doman seems to be able to cause serious trouble.
Things are about to get interesting once again.]

But he has spoiler[realized it]. The reason he is spoiler[not confirming it is that there is not a 100% chance that it is correct], and he would rather spoiler[not ruin what he has made with her if wrong. But he is starting to see her as Hokuto].

I'd say the relationship is already becoming strained considering how much the two were avoiding each other and couldn't even act normally when they were together.

I feel for Touji on this one. It's annoying watching them pussy foot around each other for so long from his perspective. It's like watching two people say "OK I'll TELL HIM TODAY!" and then they never end up doing it until someone intervenes and gets them to finally come out with it. I hope they can get over this whole situation soon.

Episode 14

The 3DCGI looks absolutely dreadful but the fight between Ohtomo and the old guy was actually very entertaining. He might have won if he had not simply stood there and let Ohtomo chant stuff but eh he was probably cocky. And that orchestra.... was just amazing. Really made the episode a thrill to watch. Looks like the slow pace of the series is finally starting to subside so hopefully things will get interesting now.

Episode 14

Wait, did the spoiler[big bad of the series just die]? Well the episode officially made Ohtomo a badass, I can respect that he used spoiler[tricks to keep Doman busy while he set the real threat up with the help of others]. Before I was not sure where his loyalty lay, like even the prosthetic gave me though he might be sinister, but revealing that he spoiler[lost it to Doman in escaping and he enlisted quite a bit of help] removes my doubt. Sadly the kids did not seem to get too involved.

There seems to be more to come, like revealing that there is a spoiler[man behind Doman] and spoiler[loli loving senpai is Doman's apprentice]. And what will be in the door? God damn it anime with your mysterious doors that we don't know if we get an answer to.

And Harutora's line to Suzuka about falling for her, I am somewhat happy with the pairing even if it won't happen, so I liked that. I do wonder if he did it on purpose or was being a bakatora.

spoiler[Finally, an action filled episode!
Sure has been a while since the last one.
Wonder how the kids will handle this attack.
I mean, the kids are impressive, but they're still just kids.
Where are all the adults when you need them?
It's a big school, yet so few experienced adults..
Well, at least they kept it real.
Damn, that Doman sure was a pain.]
