Loved it! Wow, this episode... So many questions answered!
Nao and Yuu for sure make a cute couple. The flashback scenes were AWESOME(yup, it was a flashback) and the theory of the true ability of Yuu is true(and what a awesome ability). Also, Yuu's brother! Yeah, his ability is Time Leap. Maybe he got blind because of that? Poor Ayumi, her power is so dangerous... But if Yuu steals it he can save her. So, I think she isn't dead. Or, maybe Yuu's going to steal Shunsuke's time leap and reset everything, but if he do that... He'll "forget about something precious"... O.O
Best episode so far. It ended up so quickly that it seems like it lasted 10 minutes. I'm really liking this series, it's getting even more interesting.

Oh man, one more looong week to go.

Wait. That still doesn't explain why Maeda said ''his true ability will be revealed'' when talking about Kumagami.

Yuu and Ayumi looked to be about the same age in the flashback.

Something tells me that the flashback was a repeat before a repeat to get to the current timeline.

If the blue haired guy erased Yuu's memories, he wouldn't be able to do it in the flashback because Shun already reversed time, meaning that there would have to be another timeline in which he does get his memory erased.

But it can also mean that Yuu and Ayumi had their memories erased in the current timeline.

Yuu's bother in the flashback and "this guy" honestly didn't felt the same. Yuu doesn't seem convinced either.

Also… NOT TIME TRAVEL CRAP AGAIN.

what if they both sacrificed their sight for having their powers for a little longer? (or maybe forever)

yuu's brother doesn't seem like a teenager for me anymore lol (same with sala) but who knows... it could be a price for using his ability too.

A great episode. Firstly with the "date" where Nao was enjoying herself and Yuu enjoying it in his own way.

I liked how everything was unveiled, but that felt really fast and quite sudden. Suddenly meeting the big shot that made all this happen, and learning the importance of Yuu's ability too. That facility was quite intriguing, though I guess it mostly lies of just how much of the world has been changed, and also the after effects of the incident.

Extra high hopes for the following eps, though I might be hyping myself too much now.

So I guessed right about Yuu having the power to absorb or downright steal other user abilities, now it makes sense the scene at the end of the baseball episode and why Nao needed him in the first place.

Good episode, excluding 3 parts:

1. Pathetic exposition to Ayumi and the viewers about who her brother is and what his ability does, I guess the same day that it all went down Yuu randomly decided to tell her at lunch (something that was apparently supposed to be a secret OR that she should have already known all along). There must've been a better way.

2. It's ok that you somehow have all the money in the world little teenagers working to save other teenagers, but building an underground facility like that is impossible without gaining attention (whether a bunch of teenagers served as construction workers or they hired others), even if the memory erasing guy helps it's still really risky and unlikely that no one will find out. Only possibility is if he bought it off someone, somehow.

3. Overused time leap plot device. Now every missing piece can conveniently be explained with some illogical time leaping dependant explanation.

I guess his older brother can no longer time leap because he aged. He's blind too, maybe abusing those powers leads to losing vision?

unless you provide a source, i think you recalled incorrectly. hasnt been a single word about an ova

He did try to save Ayumi though he sent the Orange haired girl after her and if Ayumi didn't decide to go to school she probably would have gotten to her before Ayumi used her power, the time leap probably has a draw back that it cant be used multiple times which is why his brother is blind.

I am sure we will get the reason why their memory was erased next episode.

I think Yuu is going to jack his brother's power, after all he did need to see in order to use his power and seeing as he's blind Yuu will have to plunder it.

This is basically becoming more and more like Heroes.

This episode was so great, leaving us with more questions than answers even though it basically spilled so many revelations.

Starting with the MC's date, which was completely adorable. Nao looked so cute in that outfit and with her fangirling.

Going into the MC's past, where we find out that he was indeed in a research facility with Ayumi and his older brother. It was interesting to see how intelligent and courageous MC was because he knew of his true ability "plunder". He's got the strongest ability of them all, one that he can hide easily. It makes sense that he was most powerful near multiple teens with various abilities. Though, the question is, can he return those abilities and how long can he use the abilities?

I never imagined this kind of plot twist, but it makes sense, to prevent anyone with an imperfect ability from getting hurt again, all MC has to do is take their ability away. From what is seen, he can carry multiple abilities at a time which makes him unstoppable. It makes me wonder how that the truth of his ability will affect his relationship with the rest of the student council. I forsee them giving up their abilities to Yuu in order to save Ayumi.

Also, another interesting part of the episode was the older brother and how he was blind. In other words, he sacrificed his sight like the female vocalist of Zhiend did in order to change something. However, when comparing him changing the world to her changing her musical status, it feels like he did indeed sacrifice something far greater than his sight alone, possibly greater than meeting his family as well. This makes me suspicious that there's definitely a horrible catch to saving Ayumi using time leap.

Also, the fact that Nao knew and trusted the brother was also very suspicious. I mean, with all his power, wealth, and support, he could do much more than individually help a girl. I feel like he predicted Nao would be a game changer, someone who could influence Yuu, so he personally made her something similar to his pawn.

Anyways, this episode was just phenomenal, but I believe next couple ones will top it with how we're closing in on the main plot of the story. The animation and music was solid. The only thing I'd have to complain about is the lack of attention to the other two members of the student council, since Yusa and Takajou will definitely play an important role as well, judging from the opening, but there's limited foreshadowing and development to show what role it will be.

Hopefully the corresponding part is another season. Considering After Story and Refrain were both real continuations.

i was under the impression that Nao had already known about Yuu's second power though. i guess it was just a hunch on her side.

I can imagine the wet guy going like "the ability is... Plunder" when they searched for Yuu in episode 1.

So I guess she and everyone in the council knew.

I like Heroes but it dragged on for too many seasons and I dropped it before S3. I think that they're doing a good job keeping this at 1 cour.

Anyway this is different given that he steals powers, not just copy

Okay now for theories. First of all for those of you who were going around saying the Power of the week episodes were useless should apologize now. It was simply a way for him to plunder all of their Powers. He took control of every single one of them they went after except for yusairn. Think about that for a while.

The older brother, and everything with Nao comes to light. The next thing is that the brother and the lead singer are blind. I'm going to go ahead and say they've overused their powers and that he used her to get the timeline the way he wanted. She'll be a focus in the next episode that much I'm certain.

This show is amazing... There is so much I want to say but I can't find the words to do... this is heading towards being my favourite for the season though.

It's kinda off topic, but yes there was. It required him to study their brains, which usually involves killing the person, and is kinda different from Yuu's, which is simply stealing.

How can anyone like this garbage? The characters feel like robots (Yuu barely cared when that weird guy talked about saving his sister), it's rushed and anticlimactic. It's so lame.

Wow. Just wow. Congratulations Jun Maeda, once again you have demonstrated your amazing ability to flip everything on its head so quickly and so thoroughly. The fact that Yu can steal other people's abilities is interesting enough in itself, but now we've learnt that his brother can leap through time as well.

Also, it just had to end there, didn't it? It's gonna be a long week waiting for the next episode.

I think that He is blind due to the "compensation" to maintain his power for longer time and He is actually working for the scientists, also that does not explain why He treated you like a stranger. I predict that He is planning to betray Yuu and kidnap him along with Nao, Joujirou and Yusa.

That was quite an episode. A lot was revealed but there's still quite a few unanswered questions. Gonna have to wait for the next episode to clear some things up.
By the way, a lot of the theories turned out to be true. I would have enjoyed the episode more if I didn't know about these theories from beforehand because seriously, there's no way I'd have ever guessed that Yuu's true ability was 'plunder'.
Nao was pretty cute this episode and apparently, Yuu likes her now.

Honestly, Yuu. Just where do you think you're looking, pal?
Nao barely acted like her usual self this episode. Instead, we get to see Yuu doing all the work. Not bad for a change.
Really looking forward to the next episode.

What an amazing episode. I suspected Ayumi was somehow still alive but the story just gained 2x the complexity with the reveal of a changed future. Yu's regaining of his memories of an alternate past where people with abilities were enslaved and experimented on was so disorienting.

Whoa, so much information in this episode :o

I'm not so sure about his brother, he seems to have the power and "influence" to become one of those self centred revenge searching characters. I also find it suspicious that he's living in a building resembling the laboratory which they were held within in the other world. The thing about Nao putting her trust in him, because he showed her the path.. that will probably also lead to problems later..

A great episode with so many new juicy details!
oh and it sounds like we'll see Ayumi again o/
