Three cute girls sitting on a train is the best anime ever.
The mystery of RE:Creators continues, but thankfully one of the major mysteries is kinda solved this week? Sorta? Just kidding if anything it just gave us more questions to ask…
Hell ya! Giant robots!
Dat art and tight flight suits are tight…
Yes we finally meet the last creation Rui in this episode even though technically we met him last week? Either way we don’t know much about him besides my predictions coming true that Rui is the “comic” relief character who kinda felt like he was a combination of Asuka and Shinji? Rui did come off as being shy at first then randomly angry and pissed off really fast or is Rui in his rebellious phase? One thing is certain he might be the most “powerful” of the good team given the fact that he brought his mech over from his world or no? I suppose Gunpuku could beat him with one arm behind her back given that she is the main boss and we saw her make quick work of Celestia’s mech in the first episode. I did enjoy that silly scene with Celestia telling Rui that she would go on a date with him if he joined their team, but apparently he is only attracted to younger girls? Which is what thirteen to fifteen for him? Because Rui can’t be more than what fifteen or sixteen right? So does that make him a LOLicon or not really if the girl is two or three years younger than him? If so damn Masaaki Nakanogane has some explaining to do if he wrote that into Rui’s character bio.
Just military things
Season three of Gate looks awesome.
Nine times out of ten whenever the military in any anime gets involved in fights against supernatural beings, giant monsters or villains with crazy superpowers they usually come off as a joke, but the military in RE:Creators might actually be somewhat useful? Maybe? So how does the military play into this story? Apparently they are fully aware of the creations coming to our world from manga, anime and games but they didn’t fully understand everything until Meteora explained a few things to them like the most important fact that the whole world might be ending soon if Gunpuku isn’t stopped? Oh and the military totally knew that Meteora stole all those high tech rocket launchers that just so happen to be worth roughly one million dollars each and she took er “borrowed” six of them?! I loved how her response was simply “uh, sorry? About that” Yep I’m sure a simple sorry will create six million dollars out of thin air or maybe Meteora can just summon some money for them instead? Silly stuff aside I guess the military is making all the creations official citizens of Japan so yay for them?! I just hope the military in RE:Creators is more like the military from Gate where they actually do stuff instead of the normal trope filled anime military of hey guys let’s waste tons of ammo and resources on these high powered beings that we can’t hurt because we’re too stupid!
Careful googling Gunpuku!
So one question that has plagued fans has been who is Gunpuku’s creator? Is it suicide-chan from the first episode? Is she Setsuna and how does Souta fit into all of this? Thankfully we got half of those answers this week. Most of these answers I found on various anime sites and forums. We now know Setsuna is the one that wrote Gunpuku’s story and Souta did her original base design which if you couldn’t tell were based off Setsuna’s looks because Gunpuku has the same face and eyes. Gunpuku’s real name is Altair and a few fans think her name plays into the whole Altair and Vega story which deals with constellations? Meteora mentioned something during the military meeting that Gunpuku isn’t ready to execute her grand plan yet because she is waiting for something? A few fans think the alignment of the stars is needed before she can destroy the world? Personally I think it fits, but I don’t know how much we can speculate just based off the name Altair. So where is Gunpuku from? From what I gathered she is from Altair: World Etude? we can guess that Altair: World Etude is either a webcomic, lightnovel or game started up by both Setsuna and Souta? I did see someone mention Altair: World Etude is connected to an app called Project Gutenberg? Project Gutenberg is a volunteer effort to digitize and archive cultural works, to “encourage the creation and distribution of eBooks”. I all like the info we got so far, but none of it really explains why Souta forgot about creating Gunpuku unless maybe his original design for her was altered so much by another person that he could no longer recognize her? I think that works way better than Souta having a case of anime amnesia. As for why Setsuna killed herself maybe her quote of “This is my new story. As I said before this is probably the last one…goodbye” might be a possible clue maybe?
Come on Rui you’re missing out on that Celestia goodness!
Sooooo shipping Metora x military glasses lady <3
The next evolution in TV! Actually being in middle of the action.
Welp we figured it out at last!
Glasses are the best <3
Well now most of us got our answers we wanted or did we? I know there are still a lot of unanswered questions regarding Setsuna’s death and why hasn’t Souta said a damn word to anyone that he might have helped create Gunpuku? I’m sure if he told them they might be a bit angry that he kept it hidden from them, but at this point what good would it do them to know that fact anyway? It’s already been proven that the original creators can’t simply re-write things on the fly to give or take away powers from their creations. Besides that we finally know a bit more about Gunpuku’s origins! Which is a start, but to be honest I think they could have keep that hidden for a bit longer because I kinda liked the mystery surrounding her character! Ah well I’m sure some fans would complain if they didn’t reveal it by now. Other than that stuff Rui and his mech should come in handy for future battles and the military seems to be smart this time; however I get the feeling that they might be hiding something from them but what? I’m sure a few of those military guys at the meeting see the creations as living breathing weapons they could totally exploit or go so far as to steal some of the tech powering Rui’s machine? Hopefully not!
