Gin's face were priceless, and I never expected she had another pair of prosthetics arms underneath.

The battles were nice and full of action, I hope there'll be another season.

thoughts

- now Futayo can say she had sex with Gin as well
- Shirojiro proves with Railgun his cosplay...Money makes the World Go Round.
- For someone who can't shoot at people directly Azuma sure finds a lot of loop holes.
- Suzu sure knows how to fall
- Tres Espana has very likeable characters.

I don't know if this has been answered before or not, but why did Muneshige had to cut off Gin's arms?

Best damned ED this season


Seriously...who doesn't love Gin....Muneshige is one lucky bastard





Also does anyone else think that marking the Incubus and the Slime as biohazard was highly appropriate?

I agree with idea Slime + Incubus = Biohazard, they're make a Biohazard XXX (a.k.a Resident Evil) .

This episode alone took 4 months to complete . At this point I'm sure they can pull off miracles even if season 3 is 1 cour (hell, I'll be happy with just about anything, if there's to be anything).

Not yet, but just for fun do you have any guesses? (Strangely this wasn't answered in the Q+A either, though what happened at the very end was).

Given how they started out, I think he deserves her! Unlike a certain ninja and a certain chuuni in comparison.



Friendly reminder that Horizon was intended to be "2 seasons total" only in the beginning, don't be surprised if there are no mention of season 3 next episode. Keeping your expectation low is the way to go as always.

Though 2ch basically said they can't complain if there's no season 3 because the staff really did their best.

Don't forget Studio 8 is doing Nerawareta Gakuen too...so Horizon 3 being done is highly unlikely

Yeah...Tres Espania's couples undeniably have more moving pasts

Ah well, it was a good run- I guess I would finally have to sit down and read the Chinese volumes...

They worked independently before though, but this tweet's deleted now (though you can still find trace of it on google ... http://puu.sh/18bRG). Look forward to Love Live I guess?

That means never because there's always "other stuff"!

PS: Shiba is the production desk guy in charge of Horizon.

Like that huh...?

Well even having a strong team needs a strong story to back it up....What's Love Live about...


Nerawareta Gakuen at least seems interesting

I always thought it has anything to do with the history reenact process, doesn't it?

Damn. That episode was good. The transitions between different battle scenes were done well, and easy to follow. When I saw the biohazard mark on the canister, I was overwhelmed by disbelief that Musashi actually resorted in using biological weapons.. until Kenji and Nenji came out. I never laughed so hard this week until I saw that scene. Haha.

Man, Futayo looks gorgeous even with her hair down. The unique ending credits was a nice touch too especially since it showed the past between Gin and Muneshige.

Your guess is as good as mine.

Right train of thought and correct for the most part. Here's a super tl;dr version.
Spoiler for Flashback context:

A bit extreme when just taken without all the details I would imagine (or maybe not for people who read spoilers for certain future character), but it is quite touching in a simple way with the text (ok a little bit guro-ish too). I will translate the flashback passage later on this week if I see nobody else does it (it's really short anyway, but I won't be held responsible if I end up spending the time on GW2 or some random mystery novel I find).

As for what happened in the end (just for completion's sake), Gin forfeited because Futayo was defeating her similarly to how Muneshige did in the past. If Futayo cut off her arms too, then Gin would have to acknowledge that Futayo's on the rank/level of Muneshige, something she absolutely refused to admit (my husband strongest!) so she disconnected her own arms instead and forfeited. The anime seriously did a splendid job with that flashback in the ED (since it's actually a mix of 2 scenes), I believe Ono really wanted to add that in so he let someone else do the storyboard instead for the episode and helped out with the key animation. I think it's cool that anime viewers can still interpret it mostly correctly without a single spoken dialogue. Oh, the entire battle BGM at the last part is Gin's special BGM.

Random bits at the end:
  • Hironaka is stronger than Shiro (by a fair amount too) if you actually paid attention to the episode. There's really not enough credit given to this guy due to Shiro's massive stylish points.
  • If you also paid attention to the entire sequence of the last fight, I hope you can properly appreciate how mucher strong Muneshige is comapre to Futayo because in the flashback he just used some random crappy sword only.
  • If you know Spanish, you can imagine in your head, Triunfo, Victoria, and Gloria for that part because that's what the text was with the Japanese as furigana.

PS: I don't know if there's a preview for the last episode (there wasn't one last season). I won't keep an eye out for it (but i'm pretty sure someone would update me if it does come out and I'll link it here then).
PPS: Apparently there is one, http://tinyurl.com/cnps5lj.
PPPS: Flashback translation, did this in a hurry and not proofread (also modified lines to make them not sounding extremely awkward like direct translation; still ended up pretty awkward oh well).

I think it's more based on the kanji counterpart (三征) and it went through 3 conquests during the Harmonic war. I don't actually know if it was being conquered or was the one doing the conquering (or both); I think that's more your field of expertise with the actual war parallels during the period .
