When this show is a romantic comedy it’s great. I hope that having Yoshino’s girlfriend revealed doesn’t cast us back into serious mode.
The best part was when Samon and friends were brainstorming around the white board about what bizarre fetish Yoshino has. Lolis, lunch ladies, teachers, old women… And the funniest part is, everyone was less concerned about any of those girlfriends than they were of him dating Mahiro’s sister. All the plotting is being put to much better use now than when they were arguing about trivial matters like saving the world.
I also liked how Hakaze blames Yoshino for her falling in love with him… It’s always the guy’s fault.
They all just casually agreed to kill off Yoshino this episode. We’ll see if they ever stop playing superheroes and having important brainstorming discussions to do anything.
Why do they think Yoshino has to have the mage of Exodus’ heart anyway? I don’t get it. Does this mean Hakaze has the Tree of Genesis’ heart? Her heart seems perfectly normal to me. How do they know what the Tree of Exodus’ heart is like, anyway? Why couldn’t it be like this frail boy’s? I still think Aika is the most likely candidate for the mage of Exodus.
Also they just casually slip in that they need the mage of Exodus’ heart. Should be fun…
Why are there only two sides to this argument, and why does everyone have such strong opinions? I would have thought that the vast majority of people wouldn’t be trusting of either tree. The Tree of Genesis did just partially bring about the apocalypse, after all, so I’m surprised it has any fans. Who’s to say that another Tree would be any different?
Apparently the Tree looks like a snake or dragon if you look at it the right way. I can’t see it, but whatever, if they say so. I guess we could interpret this in light of the story of Eden, the Tree of Life vs. the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil / the Serpent. There it was the snake that enabled the creation of civilization, while here it’s supposed to be the Tree of Genesis. It doesn’t match. But the Eden story fits more with the magic the trees give than the show’s explanation does. If the Tree of Genesis empowers civilization, why does it destroy the objects of civilization to use magic? The Tree of Exodus’ magic doesn’t destroy anything. I wonder if the mages have gotten the trees’ roles backwards.
