Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei episode 07
This episode certainly was a lot better in terms of Tatsuya being a powerhouse. He finally displayed some of his skills and also showed us that he has what it takes to lead people. It’s really a disgrace that he’s still a course two student, but no worries… He will rise to power with or without that school.
Tatsuya ordered everyone around and went in through the front door with his little sister. When you are as skilled as he is and when you have a powerful magician like his little sister behind you… Yeah, I can imagine that everyone would feel quite invincible. The guy didn’t even have to go in. He could’ve sent his little sister in alone to freeze everyone.
I thought that it was pretty neat how Tatsuya resolved that situation with a clear head. He realize that his opponent was trying to divert his attention elsewhere so he could launch a spell, but Tatsuya didn’t take the bait and countered before the spell was even cast. Finally some signs of him being an overpowered character…
Now, there’s no doubt in my mind that this whole incident just opened up the floodgates. I’m sure more and more opponents will show up after what happened. This will give up a lot more interesting opportunities to see Tatsuya in action. It might also give Tatsuya the golden opportunity to prove to the world that course two students shouldn’t be looked down upon just because they aren’t good in something. People always have things that they are good in and things that they are bad in. That’s just how it goes. I’m sure Tatsuya will get another opportunity to beat a powerful opponent in front of everybody.
