Huh. That’s interesting.
So it’s been proven that the Rewrite beams don’t work against humans from Earth. I guess my idea about how the Magic World and their inhabitants are somehow altered-state manifestations borrowing the physical area of Mars was on the mark somewhat. Currently, my idea that they are all “programs” that can be “deleted” or “rewritten” with administrator access or they might just have been “shifted back” in to their original state. Otherwise, it could be a giant-scale illusion operated by a “core” somewhere, but there’s still not enough information to know that.
And there’s also Asuna’s “Magic Cancel” ability, which now seems to be explainable by that she has some sort of “administrator privileges”. I’m pretty much using a lot of computer architecture based thinking here, since Akamatsu’s a closet geek as well. It will be interesting to see what the final explanation is like.
By the way…. why are they targeting Nodoka if they can’t affect her with the beams?
