I'm also a bit curious what role that woman in the beginning of episode 9 will play later on in this new arc. For one thing, spoiler[Kanon] sure is a mysterious girl.

Oh and that misunderstanding was face palm worthy lol. I mean, it was a spoiler[kitty]!

Episode 9

At least they did not have any alternative spoiler[words for cats used], although I am not sure that is an actual thing in Japanese. Is the series really ecchi though? A bit of word play and a little underwear seems to be as much as it gets.

You could say that he is an idiot for not realizing all the advances like spoiler[calls from an androphobic girl and a girl saying that she will stick with him]. But he does seem to be spoiler[considering that a kiss might be signs.] Well I laughed when she revealed that she was spying on him and her.

So how much foreshadowing did we need to know that the white haired girl spoiler[has some sort of holey connection like angels]?

Episode 10
Oh boy, let the drama begin between spoiler[Sayaka and Asagi]. Obviously, both girls has a thing for Akatsuki.

I'm curious about this spoiler[Kanon girl though..since the arc seems to focus on her quite a bit. One other thing we did learn this episode is Yukina's fear of flight. ;.;

I would have liked an explanation for what these Possession Mask things are. They talked about them like they're common knowledge, even Kojou who is usually the one unfamiliar with terms.

Episode 10

With them spoiler[trapped on an island] my favourite parts were when he tried to spoiler[use the familiar to catch food], and Himeragi was using her spoiler[spear to chop up various coconut dishes]. Him comforting her too was nice.

And never has an angel looked so majestic since spoiler[Bayonetta].

I didn't really pay much attention before, but Natsuki has some seriously gorgeous blue eyes

although his observation about spoiler[getting sick] is actually pretty apt.spoiler[ If all you eat and drink is coconut meat and milk... you would probaby get a tremendous case of the runs.]

While the subject of eyes is still fresh--did anyone else,notice how,luminous Asagi's eyes get when she is hacking/programming? After Sayaka's small comment, it has me wondering if those shining red eyes are the result of some power, or if it is just there to put emphasis on how hard she is concentrating

I had considered that, but it might just be the glow of the monitor reflecting in her eyes.

I hope that's the case. With pretty much all the girls having some kind of supernatural ability, it would be nice for there to be at least one normal human who trumps by using her mind instead of her gorgeous body

Episode 11:

Hmm, interesting episode I guess. A spoiler[new character, or rather princess makes her debut with some origins related to Kanase. Why do I have a weird feeling she might come to like Akatsuki soon too?? As for Akatsuki, poor him...]

I also feel sorry for spoiler[Kanase as well being treated like an experiment to be pushed towards her limits.] Next episode might be the finale of this arc so hoping they will solve this conflict.

Episode 11

Why are we supposed to be worried about him? In a previous episode he recovered from having his head removed, just remove his control art restrictions he should be fine. But her worried is worth something too.

La Folia seems alright, although her being so fond of him so quickly seems a little odd, there is probably a story there. Also, I don't feel like Foli-rin sounds very Japanese. Chances are she spoiler[is going to give a blood donation.]

Anyone else notice Kensei's necklace? I wonder if he has a pack of duelling cards.

It's possible attacks with a divine attribute could be fatal for him.

more likely it's reeeeally stuck in a formula.
ep.1 introductions
ep.2 show off the bad guys for a little bit, maybe get in a little fight, maybe get captured
ep.3 bad guys look unstoppable- spout off lines like "it's no use!", Akatsuki gets beat up.
ep.4 suck blood, gather harem member, surprise bad guys with "That's impossible!" comeback.

Rinse and repeat

hopefully they can break the cycle a little more than they have in these first three arcs...
