Black★Rock Shooter episode 7 discussion

Episode 6 discussion can be viewed here

Saya can't interact with Black Gold Saw like Mato who is trapped or Yuu who upgrades Strength the same way as Mato did. The most she could do was call out to Mato. It showed progress even if it didn't free Mato. If she can't do anything, there is no point in trying again just to fail.  This leaves Yuu who is actually Strength to help Mato.


So with Yuu actually being Strength, it explains why she doesn't have a shadow and why she hasn't aged. Well kind of... I expect Strength to have taken over Yuu's body, but that should mean she would age like Saya still. It just means Mato befriended Strength, not Yuu.

Strength did a better job than Saya since Mato actually responded. Mato managed to hold a little control, but Black Rock Shooter shoots her own legs. To escape Mato has to reject Black rock Shooter even though she is her other self.

It then goes onto a video interview type situation where they explain Mato is happy, but hides her true feelings. I wonder who's behind the camera. Most likely it's Yomi. Mato realises she is running away from painful things.

Strength gets an upgrade which leads her to getting the upperhand on Black Rock Shooter. Strength is trapped in Yuu just like Mato is trapped. I'm unsure if Yuu is evil, but she chose the world with less pain leaving strength to live in the real world. She knowingly trapped strength to upgrade and defeat Black Rock Shooter. Yuu's painful life was enough to give Strength emotions and gave her a will to live. Yuu is just betraying Strength for all the time she burdened Yuu's pain.


Mato has gone missing which causes Yomi pain when she can't properly remember Mato. Yomi's pain is due to Mato not paying enough attention to her. Remembering her pain, but acknowledging her as a friend revives Dead Master. With both Strength and Mato trapped, only Dead Master is able to help them come to their senses.

Love power triumphs once again as Yomi's love for Mato was far too strong for her to forget.

It'll be interesting to see how Kagari's reawakening will affect both her and Chariot.

As awesome as this episode was, I still don't trust those writers.

I can at least see it finishing in 1 episode. There shouldn't be any kind of cliffhanger like in the OVA.

I need Chariot to be alive too for the grand finale. This is going to get epic!

I expect her to be alive, she's one of the main 5 and Kagari is feeling pain too.
