This translation is quite possibly to be utterly wrong due that I used Babelfish translator, turning quite inaccurate and imprecise to come up with a literal translation of the kanji.

This is a rough and likely incorrect translation:

LOL that is completely off. That's why i never trust babelfish.. even the name sounds "unassuring".

The anime ending kinda ruins that plan, they'd need a massive rewrite. Or perhaps an episode_13_v2.

Hm don't recall that, I'd have to watch it again. I do remember they were surprised that one of the doors opened while there were no defects. Perhaps the director was behind it?

It was the son of old-man Kakuzawa that opened the hatches of the door and let Lucy escaped.

He killed the guards at the control room who were operating the hatches.

He's only addressed by his last name and title, Prof. Kakuzawa or calling him Kakuzawa Jr.

Who later gets his head popped up for giving thoughts and attempting to touch Nyu-Lucy.

Sorry for my double post.

Yes, I also wish for a second season, however, I have the feeling that the staff who made the series felt pleased with how it turned out for the anime. Therefore, viewing no need for a second season.

If that's going to turn out into their last words, bastards they are.

I don't feel very pleased with how the pace flowed from episode 12 til the end.

Just look. Although the anime ending was left opened within a sense of full closure, it was full of paradoxes and worst of all contradictory ones.

1. Does Kouta ever realized Lucys' feelings for him?
2. Did Lucy ever explained the reason why she killed Kouta's family to him?
3. What was the whole point regarding the promise that Lucy wanted Kouta swear to her about killing her if she ever began to murder people, during their childhood?
4. Aside from being friendly and becoming part of other family member, did Nyu has had any other role to accomplish?
5. Would we ever get to see Lucy apologizing to someone else that is not Kouta? Forgive people and grant them a second chance?
6. Will someday Yuka confess to Kouta the motives behind her jealousy and regretting before him due to Kouta's childhood trauma?
7. What about Nana? Would we ever know how Kurama came into her life and what were her first feelings toward him upon experiencing kindness for first time?
8. What was that bastard Kakuzawa master plan deal about, if he no longer needed Lucy alive for it? Why does he changes his mind about Lucy's utility, recalling that in a middle episode he said that when Lucy climaxes all humanity will meet its end, but in the last episode changes his plot and wants Lucy not captured but rather full dead?
9. Will Lucy achieve someday hope, believe in herself, admit that she along with people make mistakes, and realizing that others suffer or had suffered like her to understand that she's no longer alone and that the whole world had never fully turned the back on her, as she initially thought so?
10. MOST IMPORTANT Really do Diclonus are borned just to specifically kill human beings? Can't they attempt to rebel against that instinct and take full, individual control of their fates and decide by themselves just like ordinary humans do? If Diclonus are indeed a natural evolution of the human lineage, were they deliberately either provoked or genetically programmed to murder humans?
Or are they mutants borned or raised to become biological weapons?

Yes the ending was great in the fact that it was satisfying the relationship somewhat between kouta and lucy but as mentioned above its no where near a fma ending too many untied ends

I was satisfied with the ending (being the romantic sap that I am), but I'd welcome a second season nevertheless. Kouta can have Lucy and Yuka; Mayu and Nana need to get it on with each other.

Lets go over the obvious stuff
Quote:
1. Does Kouta ever realized Lucys' feelings for him?
Does anyone realize what Lucy's feelings are? Since Kouta accepts responsibility for what happened many years ago I guess he knows how much Lucy hates him. Anything else he can only hope for.
Quote:
2. Did Lucy ever explained the reason why she killed Kouta's family to him?
She calls him a liar for going out with another girl. Guess Lucy expected other "normal" humans would treat her better but all hope has vanished after Kouta's betrayal and she started her crusade against the humanity.
Quote:
3. What was the whole point regarding the promise that Lucy wanted Kouta swear to her about killing her if she ever began to murder people, during their childhood?
Lucy was a weird orphant girl one day and brutal murderer the next. Naturally the future of being the latter doesn't seem bright but at the same time very likely.
Quote:
4. Aside from being friendly and becoming part of other family member, did Nyu has had any other role to accomplish?
Guess it shows how hollow Lucy really is when her hatred towards the world is stripped away.
Quote:
6. Will someday Yuka confess to Kouta the motives behind her jealousy and regretting before him due to Kouta's childhood trauma?
IMHO that relationship needs to develop some more to decide if Yuka only seeks his attention or the feeling is much more substantial.
Quote:
7. What about Nana? Would we ever know how Kurama came into her life and what were her first feelings toward him upon experiencing kindness for first time?
We've seen how heartless Kurama can be and probably he tries to compensate that when dealing with confined diclonuses. Even him slapping Lucy goes unpunished.
Quote:
5. Would we ever get to see Lucy apologizing to someone else that is not Kouta? Forgive people and grant them a second chance?
9. Will Lucy achieve someday hope, believe in herself, admit that she along with people make mistakes, and realizing that others suffer or had suffered like her to understand that she's no longer alone and that the whole world had never fully turned the back on her, as she initially thought so?
Well we know that a young Lucy has suffered a serious mental trauma because of certain incidents which at that age can lead to a number of psychoses some of which often dont manifest themselves for years. Trying to fight them alone can often be disastrous so I think it largely depends on how her relations with the Kouta's "family" will go

Ever heard of the school shootings? It requires a greater deal of persistance to obtain a gun, bring it to school and shoot people for half an hour than to go apeshit with the vectors for a moment. I'm not sure if "people with super powers cant blend in" is the message of the series but some other mutant/superhero stories deal with similar problems. It might look that Nana can fight the urge to mutilate every person she meets but it's obvious that she lives in denial. She won't fight someone who put gun to her head and that's hardly adequate.
