Blast of Tempest Episode 21

Yes, Aika is the Mage of Exodus. With this information out in the open Hakaze tells all. Despite the brandished swords of the end of last episode, Aika takes it all a little too well, deciding the only way to make things work is to create her death herself. Unable to let such a tragedy occur, Hakaze attempts to kill Aika herself in a mix of rage and sorrow.

Blast of Tempest Episode 17

Megumu is back from his travels around the world in order to sew the seeds of discontent against the Tree. Back in the Yoshino and Hakaze camp, the poor girl still can’t get a good grasp of her emotions, and thus spends most of the episode being hilariously adorable.

Blast of Tempest Episode 16

Megumu starts the Kusaribe’s plan by destroying a branch of the Tree of Genesis. Meanwhile, Hakaze is troubled by the final words of Jun while visiting her home. Is it her growing feelings for Yoshino that unintentionally slew Aika?

Blast of Tempest Episode 15

Blast of Tempest Episode 12

Recap: The princess finally finds her key to travel through time. By the time she arrives, the two tree have already started clashing. No longer under the protection of the tree, will Mahiro and Yoshino be safe in this duel of gods? Oh, also, that up there? Called it.

Honestly if you think about it, the most menacing thing this guy can do is borrow your tank.

Blast of Tempest Episode 9

Recap: With the new revelation, Mahiro is quick to jump allegiances, his only trust in whoever can find Aika’s Killer. While Natsumura is taking out the army at large, Yoshino decides he will not allow the current state of affairs to remain, and fights Mahiro to prevent this story from becoming Hamlet and instead turning…

Blast of Tempest Episode 8

The confrontation at the Tree of Exodus has begun. With the entire might of the Japanese Self Defense Force in their support, Mahiro and Yoshino go to confront the mages directly, running into Samon. Instead of actually fighting, we proceed to spend more than half the episode talking. Then talking. Then showing a guy talking to nobody. Then a plot twist, so I guess at least there’s that.

Blast of Tempest Episode 6

Junichiro is certain Hakaze is dead, even handling her skeleton, which has somehow been picked clean in a matter of months (trust me, this does not happen.) After some fanservice laden backstory for Junichiro, another fruit appears. To make matters worse, Yoshino gets kidnapped, making Mahiro give chase.

Blast of Tempest Episode 5

Recap: We get a bit more backstory exposition, which I am none too particularly fond of. Then we see a kickass whale skeleton… I mean run into another one of Samon’s lackeys. Hope you like random plot twist, cause that’s all that waits for you at the end!

Blast of Tempest Episodes 2 and 3

Yoshino reveals the secret behind his magic to Mashiro just in time for him to get caught by Evangeline again. After she gets delt with, another mage enters the fray. Next episode, Yoshino fights the mage as Hakaze gives us a huge info dump. I suppose this stuff was good as world building but damn did it have to be so wordy?
