We live, laugh, enjoy and strictly believe on "more the merrier". When together, we usually come up with very chatty, conversation-based episodics and interesting posts.

    Where Cross Ange is getting interesting… but still a dead Tusk would have been better.

    Meanwhile, Slaine’s plans are coming apart slowly. Inaho seriously takes the phrase ‘disregard operating instructions for implant’ to ignorance. Asseylum is ridiculously naive despite the crap that is going on. Oh well, the end is nigh…

      but still a dead Tusk would have been better.

      Seeing that he’s the only main male character, assuming him dead proved foolish after all.

    • Foshizzel says:

      I completely agree a dead Tusk would be BETTER not because I hate the character, but I just think it would have given Ange more growth and motivation to kill Embryo even though I know people will say “well she has experienced enough tragedy in her life why add more?”

      • Di Gi Kazune says:

        And to think they were killing people like nobody’s business at the beginning of the series and now people can’t die and stay dead…

        • BlackBriar says:

          A change of formula?

        • Highway says:

          They still kill people off at the end. Mamika died just a couple episodes ago. But it is that you can’t really kill off the important people. They did off Julio in the middle of the series.

    Cross Ange: Producer Fukuda Mitsuo twittered they originally wanted to show Tusk wearing a suicide vest when he blew himself up, but had to censor it due to broadcasting concerns.
    He also twittered that Tusk was able to survive due to ‘ninja teleport skills’.

    PS. Momoka’s saucepan must be made of Adamantium. It’s the ONLY logical explanation.

      Now that is what I call plot armor!!

    • belatkuro says:

      She pulled it out from the wrong side of her chest though so technically she should have died. Sasuga Fukuda.

      I knew Tusk was a broken character but god damn!

    Cross Ange has a spinoff gag manga, Tenshi no Ryuu no Gakuen, where each chapter is a funnier retelling of events in its corresponding anime episode.

    The main setting is a school. Among others, Ange and the Normas are students, Embryo is the nutty stalkerish headmaster, the DRAGONs are from another school, etc.

    And everyone is a chibi.

    Aldnoah.Zero: At this point, Slaine has a 50/50 chance of falling into complete ruin if everything goes south. Since we all know Asseylum is the forgiving type, she might cut him some slack provided he makes himself reasonable. Whatever he’s planning, the price to pay may be too high.

    The robotic eye got a lot of my attention on the last episode, mainly due to capabilities I find unnerving. If you ask me, it’s something that needs to be kept in check at all times. It literally took control of Inaho’s body in order to speak when he became exhausted. Too much free reign. Any more like that and the idea of machinery gaining a mind of its own wouldn’t be farfetched. Already the speech to Asseylum is enough to indicate observations on Inaho were made as much as him using the eye for battle analysis. Technology that unpredictable is foreboding.

    • Foshizzel says:

      Slaine is headed down the Code Geass route! All his allies are going to turn on him leaving him just like Lelouche’s fate, but in the end his “story” is just a revenge thing for Inaho stealing Asseylum from him lol…

      True on Inaho’s magical robotic eye and I have the feeling he will lose it in the final battle or what if the eye takes over completely? I could see that as well!

      PS grats on 9000+ comments xD

        Thanks! My power is over 9000!!

      • Di Gi Kazune says:

        I just realised that in the first half of the series, the Martians were trying to assassinate Asseylum.

        In the 2nd half, the Earthians are trying to assassinate Asseylum.

        Such a tragic life being a Purinsesu. No LOEV for hime. 🙁

    • Di Gi Kazune says:

      All the wheels are coming off Slaine’s plans at the moment.

      Asseylum should just get a harem and make peace. 😛

    Cross Ange: I figured Tusk’s survival more than a possibility but to have Momoka alive as well. It leaves a feeling of being cheated after all the drama build-up in the confrontation against Embryo. Another thing, I can’t wrap my head around why Momoka would have a pan stashed in her clothing. Moreover, it was placed in front of her bust. I mean, we should have at least been able to see a bulge to indicate “something” was there because that’s far too convenient.

    Ange is taking charge of the Norma! About time it happened. I particularly liked how she reprimanded Jill for not acknowledging Salia and giving her due. My pet peeve with her character has always been her tendency to use people as tools without any kind of consideration.

    Yeah Ange swings both ways.

    I would have filed a complaint if that picture wasn’t there. 😀

    • Foshizzel says:

      General rule of most Sunrise shows = Nobody important dies EVER and I knew Tusk and Momo would survive somehow cause why not? It seems to be a trend in Cross Ange, but whatever ill accept it…

      Ange doesn’t even care anymore about humans! She straight up shot that dude in front of her sister but I know she was actually “saving” her life and giving her a reason to survive.

      LOL Yep!

    In other news: more Aquarion Gattai! – Aquarion SOGOL/LOGOS.

    But the most important question is: Where is Fudou the God?

    • Foshizzel says:

      Yeah I saw there is a third season and a crossover movie with the first and second seasons? HELL YA! I want them now, but sadly ill have to wait a while…

    For A/Z:

    Well, that was a really fast paced battle episode.

    We have the UFE launching an attack on the Moon base, we have them trying to assassinate Asseylum. Barouhcruz and Harklight are out there fighting against them, Harklight finally changing into his knight attire. Lemrina and Asseylum still really don’t care for each other, but Lemrina is going to stay at the base while Asseylum tries to escape with her life. Inaho tries to stop the assassination, however, his eye continues to pain him. His eye is now a separate artificial intelligence, and temporarily takes over Inaho’s mind and body when everything short circuits. Slaine and Inaho have their duel, to which of course, neither wins. However, they seemed to have switched places from the last time they fought on Earth.
    Asseylum talks to the “Eye” of Inaho, which tells her Inaho’s feelings and that help will come for him. She asks the eye to tell Inaho that she feels the same and to do a favor for her, which I think will be towards Slaine, who they cut to just as they are mentioning the favor.
    She’s about to leave, but is rescued and stopped by Klancain, who from his talk to Slaine earlier, seems to be more loyal to her grandfather even more so than her.

    So, what will happen next? Well, we have two more episodes, I’m guessing Klancain is going to do something since he’s just be sort of an add on this episode. Inaho’s eye is now it’s own being and can take over his body, I have no idea what that does to his brain. Since Inaho and Slaine had their (Char/Amuro-like) dual this episode, I’m doubting that they will fight against each other again. I’m actually thinking that it will be Slaine that finds Inaho first thanks to that necklace clue. Klancain will probably take Asseylum to his ship, since I can’t see him going to or letting her go to the Deucalion, and he might consider what he thinks the wishes of the Emperor would be, more important than that of the princess.

    Well, a really good battle episode, and a lot of developments going on here. Though honestly, the end can’t come sooner for me, this series is exhausting.

    • Di Gi Kazune says:

      Heh. The “Eye” of Inaho. Do not go to Mordor! For it is Inaho’s lair with all his orcs.

      • Irenesharda says:

        Oh man, which is scarier? The eye of Sauron or the eye of Inaho? Hmmm…that actually is a pretty good question…:P

    • Di Gi Kazune says:

      Also, Slaine’s plans are now just like the Kerbal Space Program…

      • Irenesharda says:

        I haven’t seen the next episode yet, but I really hope something comes of all of this. Slaine has and always will be my favorite character and I hope they know how to utilize him well. 🙁

  8. Di Gi Kazune says:

    Yay. This week is the final week to see how Aldnoah and Ange crash and burn… Which will go up in a blaze of glory?!

    • Irenesharda says:

      I gave up Ange awhile ago so I don’t know about that, but I have seen Aldnoah.

      • BlackBriar says:

        I gave up Ange awhile ago so I don’t know about that

        In your case, that’s probably the best idea. Because I can tell you, a great deal of the story was yuri injected.

        • Irenesharda says:

          Yeah, I pretty much gathered that after awhile. Yuri and even ecchi just aren’t my thing and I wouldn’t be able to enjoy the plot that was there, no matter how good it might have been.

        • Highway says:

          Maybe it’s just me. I distinguish between “yuri” and adult relationships. Especially ones of either convenience or love, which is what the relationships in Cross Ange are. Either convenience because people want to have someone to make you feel important and when you’re in women’s prison there’s not a lot of choice, or actual love, like Rosalie and Chris, whose relationship was broken apart, but desired so much that they fought in battle to bring it back. Even Ange and Hilda’s kiss makes sense to me in the context of the characters, not just for yuri playing around, because they’ve become very important to each other, and Hilda actually outright confessed to Ange right before it.

          To me, ‘yuri’ is more the schoolgirl ideal that we see in Sakura Trick, or Yurikuma Arashi, or even YuruYuri. It’s cute, and it’s fun to watch, but it’s very different.

      • Di Gi Kazune says:

        The ending was unsatisfactory.

    • BlackBriar says:

      No idea on how Aldnoah will close its story. For Cross Ange, if I had to guess, an ending similar to Valvrave, maybe.

    • Di Gi Kazune says:

      On an unrelated matter, this is probably what happened to Marylcian…
