Some familiar faces return this time including Kanon and Natsuki. I have to admit though, the girls looks cute in their yutaka.

Kiriha is also back as well. Looks like Natsuki is going to be a main focus in this arc thoug.

Oh wow what a twist!
Didn't expect Natsuki to turn against Kojou at all because you know.. <~< she's supposed to look after him. And i think there's more to Kojou's father than what's shown because the way he talked and acted was if he knew about Himeragi and her organizations observation on Kojou.. Maybe I'm just speculating too much but i hope Nagisa is alright. Or he's being mind controlled, but what do I know since i don't read the source.
Yea uh.. kinda missed Himeragi's kenka quote a bit, it's been a while since the series aired after all.

3 pairs this episode. ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

Surprised to see Kojous dad. A main characters with parents that actually exist and makes an appearance.

Nice too see they didn't just throw away the characters from the previous arc too.

This OVA is way better than the TV series... There's more uspense and excitement; it's handled a lot better.

Yeah, there's obviously a lot more to Kojou's father than what we've been told so far, and I imagine he's largely responsible for whatever is going down on the mainland.

Astarte is best alien XD

That said, I'm interested in how Kojou's dad fits into all this. I'm assuming he's a part of an organisation, but the fact that he had to take Nagisa out to complete his mission seems suspect. Top it off that they had to receive the news of whats going on from an entirely different organisation makes it even more suspect. I doubt it's all as simple as an internal struggle within Himeragi's Organisation.

Can't wait to hear the reveal next episode.

Kojou's dad eh? That was a pretty interesting development.

Glad to see Natsuki-chan again. :D

The girls looked pretty good in their new year outfits.

Nagisa rescue arc incoming I guess.

It was in the light novel adapting volume 11. The 4th Progenitor on the run is actually the volume title.

Really good episode.

Kojou's father is interesting. I'm curious, what he has to hide and why he took Nagisa with him.

The organization responsible for the blockage is a dummy of the Lion King Organization.

Nice fanservice from Kanon.

Natsuki-chan really wants to prevent Kojou from leaving. Or she's testing his resolve.

Damn they're really not trying to help him whatsoever. It's his sister right? They should at least keep him in the loop about her safety. Can't wait for that next episode.

Honesty is the best policy, but urban fantasy characters are genetically incapable of that. Being a mysterious guy who withholds critical information from one's friends must be a major part of magic-users' education everywhere.

Just wanted to post something like this, too.

If his sister is not in danger (despite being involved in a magical disaster of some sorts, and not by chance..so highly unlikely), there is no harm in telling him.

If she is, it at the very least borders on malicious in not telling him, especially now that he knows of it anyways.

I hate it when anime/manga that I enjoyed ends, especially when there could be much longer plot and when I love main heroine :P

I wish I had magic glasses that let me see real world in anime colors ;)

Of course we can't explain why he can't go "save" his sister...

So my suspicions were right, Nagisa and Kojou are siblings but why is that little girl calling her older brother by his name? Even her father? I forgot all these details cause it's been so long. Anyway, what's stopping Kojou from going all out and just fucking killing anyone who defies him? Dude is op as fuck right? All these secrecy is annoying me really. And it doesn't help that I'm confused as fuck and don't understand half the time what these people are talking about.

Lmao taking his daughter to a strip bar. Curious to see what the deal is with Kojou's dad and why exactly he took Nagisa to the mainland.
