Wonder if she'll die for real this time.
Didn't think so... wish she would at least change her ways.
Shido was pretty delusional up till now.
It was not very surprising he decided to save Kurumi from herself.
Although she wasn't not making it easy at all.
Kurumi is one strange, demented psycho girl.
spoiler[WTF?! Kotori is a spirit too!!] Now, that was a surprise.

Well, technically spoiler[she's a human with Spirit powers.]

But yes, the fact that spoiler[Origami is a rev-com]* for her definitely complicate sthings.

Episode 10

This episode was gloomy, it had some semi cool moment with Kotori spoiler[going out of control and kind of reminding me of Black Rock Shooter (the fire helped)]. And despite the dramatic irony being that he has to go on a spoiler[date with his sister], it was all a bit heavy. I do like those spoiler[jump in the middle things], it is always stupidly cool thing to do.

But at least Origami managed to save the episode with some comedy. Her obviously spoiler[fake fainting, holding onto him tightly, whatever she did to him in elevator, and making him feed her] were all very funny. But then they had to go and spoiler[show how much she is out for revenge in killing the fire Spirit (Kotori)], so sad, but still drama.

My favourite part of Kotori's spoiler[Spirit design]? She has a pair of hot spoiler[horns]. img

Shido's sister has some interesting powers.
spoiler[Kotori vs Kurumi] was really fun to watch.
Those girls were really hell bent to kill each other.
spoiler[Shido - Kotori] heart to heart was what I was waiting for.
Interesting. Didn't know spoiler[humans could become spirits].
Origami was totally taking advantage of having Shido for herself ^^

well, that's another unfortunate predicament. while Origami's aggressive tactics are funny, did she ever explain why she likes Shido?

You have to like Shido. He is a classic, weak male protagonist in a harem anime. There's nothing not to like.

My guess as to why Origami likes Shido is because he probably comforted her after Kotori cremated her parents. She claims to have known him from before, but he doesn't remember. Since he says his memory got erased for that small period of time, I'm guessing that's where Origami fell for him :p
On a side note, does anyone think Tohka is a poorly designed character? Not in terms of art, just her character as a whole. She's overly-dependent, she has no character development, she has no tragic back story (adding one is usually how writers try to save their bad characters), you would think she'd at least be funny...but she's not :/

By the way, what's happened with Clock Eye? Her powers weren't sealed, were they? Shouldn't she be a harmless member of the harem by now?

Ah. Something tells me this show isn't going to be wrapped up in 12 eppies. Maybe 13.

Yeah, how dare he put his life on the line for each girl/spirit. Really, the only reason he's alive is because is because he's so pathetic and not worth killing ... for long. Or something.

I mean besides that, you know, "caring, fighting and struggling for each of the girls against overwhelming forces and reason" thing, what has he done in order to earn their love?

Anyway, last episode "Ifrit" was fine. A little drama, a little comedy, a lot of good cgi fire, Kurumi's main attack centered on suicide combined with miming a clock with a shotgun and a pistol for some reason which is weird but ... different I guess. A little backstory was shown, some plot progressed, it was fun.

No sense nitpicking now, it's almost over.

it's some sort of time manipulation. I think she is spoiler[killing her current self to summon her past self and that somehow makes her stonger]
