Yabeee...... The art cracked up in a way that cracked me up... Especially obvious is Luke near the beginning (forgot exactly where) and when Asch ran up to the group.
Everyone, pause while he is running. You'll see one priceless cut...

Sub just came out, great episode. Poor Tear... I hope Luke doesn't end up disappearing at the end of this series. Hrmm, I don't really care for Dist much so I didn't mind that fight going lolfast.

Spoiler for ep22:
Well don't think its because the replicas are all just really nice. They really don't have much of a choice than to comply with Asch's plan. They are all replicas of dead people so they aren't going to be happily accepted by people. Plus their purpose was just cut away after being told they were abandoned. They have nowhere to go and no feeling of purpose. All they have left is to sacrifice themselves so that the others will be given somewhere to live. Really it's about necessity than just being good people.

Well anyways managed to catch up and put down my thoughts on this one.

After certain events we've seen in this show, and you're telling me you actually think he's gone for good?

So in other words, they decided to sacrifice themselves for the others, right? Not much difference than being "good people"... They could have done other horrible things even after losing everything (actually happens, no? Negative feelings-->crimes), but they all decided to die instead of it. Not any real necessity. No one is going to know they are replicas, they can make an excuse, etc. They can do plenty of things to at least try to get a lifestyle, but they didn't.
Though I guess you mean basically, that in other words, they were all suicidal and tried to use their meaningless life for others (=good people)

If Arietta comes back (NOT as a replica) then I would agree with you

Rather than the replicas sacrificing themselves for the people of the world, they actually did it for their own brethren since they are aware that they are replicas themselves who should have no place in this world.

That sucks for the replicas all ten thousand of them died. It's pretty sad Luke is also going to pass away for the greater good.
