( ,_ゝ`) Heh~, it's been a while since the episode thread got created so fast.
--

Normally interesting episode, I guess as usual. Story still gives me ? marks, so I can't put much of a paragraph together...

-Old people all look the same... *shiver* Are they all replicas?!

-Noel... moe...

-Asch... Better person than he seems to be?!... Hmm~, Natalia x Asch after all?

-Guy's sleeping posture...

-Keh... Damn (Natalia's) father. Has the nerves to chase his own daughter away and tries to make up in all of that mess. Well, I guess this is supposed to be a "Good story " scene, so I'll just take it as that...
Well, pff, they're talking to the father about how regardless if she is "fake" or not, the time spent does not change, but a certain female in that party didn't exactly do any better.

-Heh~, so Van's motive is to get revenge... Another "Humans are evil and must die" or such type of last boss?


...Un... No matter how many times I watch it, Asch's crab run in the OP is funny.

Animators... Stay steady! Kind of got scary during a few moments in the episode, I thought...

I'm glad that Abyss is once again a Friday show like when it first aired.

There had better be some action in this one. We wait like 2 weeks and there's no action? Boring!

The place-jumping is getting more and more pronounced.

Next episode should return to more fighting scenes. I'm hoping for a good one.

Spoiler for for next episode:

I was afraid in last ep that they would completely drop the "control the Sephiroth" plotline, but judging from this episode, they're still going to do it - just a little later than in the game.
Glad to know they still know what they're doing =)
Seriously, this is the best adaptation I've ever seen.

Easily one of the most memorable fights in the entire game.

WOW thing just keep coming like a flood. Tell you what Guy is a bigger person that me i would have slaughtered everyone in the room. The realization of what actually happened to Hood is just WOW. It seems when ToA decides to start revealing secrets it comes like a storm.

The episode was not bad in general the set up for the next phase was done quite well. We even had some Tear Luke hand holding moment and a Asch and Natalia moment even though it was just Asch being supportive but that was a big step for him considering how much of an ass he is. I still think in the end Luke and Asch are going to have a show down. Asch has his own motives much of it that we do not know. The only part we do know is he wants to stop Van. But taking out Van with the information we got in this episode seems like its going to be a bit a difficult. If he can preform hyperresoance too then that makes him truly dangerous.

9/10


WTF was up with the guy with nothing but eyebrows? I saw him and died laughing i mean how the hell can he see hasent he ever heard of plucking.

I really enjoyed this episode. More information was given out and some scenes in the game were added in. As for the quote above, not everyone in the TOA universe has the same restraint as Guy.

A random thought...

I agree that this episode was quite slow...although in general, I really like the pace of the series
But there's only 11 episodes left, and considering how much from the game is left...I suspect things will start to become really rushed.

Well, at least it won't be as rushed as it would be in OVA format.

Like Van . He has it all figured out. Forget about getting individual blame and just kill everyone.

In the end its not like Guy would have gotten too far. Sure he would have gotten the King. Maybe Natalia since he would have had to go through her. But Jade isn't going to sit around and it would have just turned into a mess with plenty dead including Guy. The winner being Van since there would be far fewer people to try and stop him.

Well it looks like the group is on their way to go give Van whats coming to him, that was a great scene in the roon with all the leaders and Guy pulled his stunt to get the info he wanted, awesome stuff! I am hoping for an awesome battle, and I am also hoping Asch ends up there and tears some peple up, but I most certainly hope for a kick butt battle in the next episode or two. I do have to admit, I almost teared up during the scene with Natalia and her father, it was nice to see him re-accept her as his own, but he didn't need to keep rubbing in the fact that she was not his own blood, that does not matter in the least.

Great episode, bring on episode 16!!!
