Can someone explain the reason why Van was just sitting there, and playing an organ?

He's a kind old man who loves playing music, of course.

Rather disappointed with some of the aspects.

Spoiler:


But considering how much material they need to squeeze in/take out, I guess this has to do.

Given that Van at this point was still human, I wonder how Sunrise could have made the fight more exciting. After all, he was outnumbered, and we certainly can't have some game-like fight where everybody could exchange devastating blows and remain standing in one piece.

Because he's the evil villain, that's why. He has to look the part and all.

I was disappointed that Van didn't tank slashes and Indignations for 15 minutes before going down. Unknown mode difficulty, this anime is not.

Last episode?

don't read the spoiler if you don't want to be spoiled... Seriously!

Spoiler for plot:


I really didn't like the pacing in this episode. The least they could have done was represent a long three month time change with a fade in fade out scene change instead of a straight cut.

Wow that was very anticlimactic the fight with Van lasted as long as it took for me to take a sip of my tea. The world was saved YAY everybody rejoice but wait...its not over.

I did get a sense of satisfaction after the Natalia Luke conversation where she had him say the same promise original Luke said in their childhood. I guess they have come to an understanding though im not completely sure what this means for them.

Although it was a small part i was happy to see that Luke v2.0 mom didnt think anything less of him being a replica. Youre still my son is what she said i think this was a huge weight off Lukes shoulders.

Seeing Tear is always a treat and she looked rather happy to see Luke after a month. Not much time for catch up's as they hurry off on another adventure.
