Man, with this and Psycho-Pass, next Thursday can't come quickly enough. Hakaze and Aika walking past each other in the previews gave me chills. Looks like we'll finally get some explanations, and it looks like Hakaze is going to be directly involved with Aika's death (if she doesn't kill her herself).

Idk. That theory of mine is pretty far fetched but who knows?


Anyone else think that the Voice actor of Mahiro does a good job of sounding like an angry punk most of the time? I don't know how the guy can do that.

Anyway, I still pretty much stand by what I said about a month ago.



I thought the bit about a higher level of science would be indistinguishable from "magic" was interesting. I semi-agree. However, if that holds true, the science brought along with the tree would have be to thousands of years ahead of Earth's science if that's true. If that's true science, it's kind of strange that there would be a chosen few that would also be able to use that science for their benefit, as well as the tree's. I think the story is better off sticking with the magic explanation. If they went the science route in this anime, I would expect one hell of an explanation for everything.

And it doesn't explain how the Kusarabe clan learned the "magic" nor why they would be needed for this alien plan. The theory is very fishy.

Which makes me wonder who Fräulein Yamamoto really is. She's very forthcoming with her theories.

I love how no one thinks the kid is the actual mage of exodus. Even the characters in the show treat it like some sort of joke. Kid comes out of nowhere and says "hey, I've got magic powers, I think I'm the mage of exodus," and everyone's like "but... he's not a badass bent on destroying the world -- let's assume it's someone else." Not that I think it's him, it's just kind of funny that both the audience and the characters just ignore him when thinking about who the mage of exodus is.

I think the problem is this: why would he only appear a year ago? If there has always been a Mage of Genesis, shouldn't there always be a Mage of Exodus?

I guess we'll see.

Yeah, there is. Aika seems to be intricately tied into everything. It's going to be interesting to see how she and Hakaze interact.

If the tree of Exodus was inactive, shouldn't the Mage of Exodus be inactive? It could be that someone always had the power, but only was able to use it or even knew about it when the tree awakened. It's not a perfect explanation, but it does explain things within the limits of the world. Plus, I think that's how the characters in the story are explaining his powers. I just think it's funny that he's out of the picture even though he's the only one to have shown powers. But to be fair, the main reason I don't think it's him is because it would be kind of lame story-wise. It doesn't tie into the Aika plot at all, and it feels like it should.

But I just can't help but laugh when I think about being in his position. He enters the picture, shows he has the abilities you'd expect from the Mage of Exodus, and everyone just ignores him because he's a wuss. From the time Hakaze comes up with the idea of a Mage of Exodus, to the time that he appears, the Mage of Exodus is treated as a sort of antagonist, and because he doesn't fit the stereotype of an antagonist, people reason that he's not the Mage. From the perspective of story structure, that makes sense, but if I'm thinking about how it works out as a story, then it seems like (at the moment) he's kind of useless to the story. If he were never introduced, I think they could pretty much maintain the same major plot elements, which makes me think that he might have some bigger part to play later on. I don't think it is, but if the "part" he plays is the Mage of Exodus, would that be all that surprising? It'd be surprising for sure, but it's not ruled out based on story structure, and it's certainly not ruled out by evidence. Plus, I've seen (many times) anime characters act like nice guys the entire show only to reveal that they are actually playing everyone. We haven't gotten any hints to that though, so I highly doubt it, but I don't think it's been ruled out by any means. I'm just chipping in to say that I'm getting a laugh from it. For the record though, I'm rooting for Aika as the Mage, because it would be the most interesting. How everything actually works out though should be even more interesting. Either way, the kid is pretty low on my expectations, and it's funny to me that that's the case. But like you said, we'll see.

I hadn't thought about that. Quite possibly so.

I kind of wish that this was a Sentai title because a home video release would be cheaper. I have yet to purchase any anime from Aniplex.

Nope. I'd say that is a very good thing. :)

Oh my goodness. Is it bad that I didn't even realize that The Tempest was an actual book?

That's horrible. I totally thought it was made up to fit the plot of the anime. Lol. I'm embarrassed now.
