Finally, we get to see what Jibrii is capable of.
Considering her background, I would have thought that she would know every possible thing for the fact that she can no longer murder people while owning the whole library of books. I enjoy her personality quite a lot mostly because she seems to be interested in the knowledge of Sora’s/Shiro’s world mostly as a result of her curiosity. Not only that, I admit that while she is gorgeous. However, her curiosity is what ultimately made her lose as the game of Material Shriotori wears on.
As for the game itself, it seem that Jibrii lost before the game started. Sure, she saved herself from an atomic bomb explosion in the beginning, but she doesn’t realize that Sora has dismantled her circuits in her wing and slowly got rid of the planet’s structure before she finally realizes. While it’s a nice strategy on Sora’s part as he managed to psychologically trick her by dragging the game out before deciding to end it, it shows the flaws of how Jibrii gained all the knowledge: she doesn’t understand everything. If she truly knows how space, planets or even the whole universe is structured, she could have won. As they say, curiosity can only get you so far. If you don’t understand it, you won’t know it.
As a whole, while this game has less to do with strategy and more about intelligence, it was still enjoyable. Like the last episode, I feel sympathetic for Steph for the fact that she was bullied to no end in this episode. Not only that, Sora and Shiro pretty much sacrifices her and she was not happy about it at all. Still, I agree that Shiro is getting less attention compared to her older brother. Hopefully that will change pretty soon since Jibrii is now willing to cooperate with them.
