Kind of surprised they mentioned Alternative 3 in the commentary, being that was the first mention it got all season (IIRC)...

Looking at what the Berkut is doing in the OP, suddenly I'm wondering...
And the ending got it right. Let the World Burn... Suffer not the Xenos to live.
Nippa~

Arggh, they even MENTIONED there were some hints that foreshadow "future development", but I can not decipher the new Ending for my life.

Why is Yui on the side and not on the front? Why is Yui even included if the ED is full of IniaxCryska moments. Are those Yuya's and Yui's hands? What does that flower mean, why is Yui so sad at the end? What's wrong with Inia?
Aaaand the lyrics are all about the Scarlet Twins.
Yep, cannot compute.

After I saw the new opening and ending, I am very afraid that there wont be any more budget for animation at all.

Not bad for a recap episode. I really liked the new op and ed though. Music really hasn't been a major problem in this series. Dat quality though, hopefully we can get better animation for the remaining 4 eps. Also, I feel like they left it with too much to do in the last 4 episodes. Maybe if they gave it 5 or 6 episodes to build up a climax it would have been better. It is what it is though. In addition, the VN story isn't finished ( that's what I heard) so it's definitely going to be an anime original ending.

Actually its the LN and Mags that isn't complete. The VN would be the complete story to put to rest all the questions.

Speaking of which, CD Japan has the limited ed coming with a Drama CD, and "Custom Ear Plugs"...

Didn't the announcer say that the hints are in the lyrics?
They make me think of someone falling from orbit to the earth, without the proper heat protections.


Anyway it really boggled me how the announcer kept talking about the climax.
I didn't really expect any climax giving all that we've seen so far. I mean, don't you need a build up before a climax? Where's the build up? Don't talk about climax when I still haven't seen the build up.

Anyway I find it really strange that they decided to create two new songs when there's just 5 episodes left.

Well, we get Cryskal's and Inia's hands separating, followed by Yui and Yuuya's hands gripping, which leads to a blooming flower wilting in fire... draw your own conclusions...

Anyone else thinks that a purple haired Inia should go Nippa~?

Will Yuuya choose Yui and send Cryska into a jelly rage? Cryska doesn't know how to deal with her emotions, I can see it happening.

Well, Yui is the main heroine, her chances of victory is all but assured considering we saw her even before we saw Yuuya.

Great news for the Yui shippers...

Uh Oh...

Personally though, I'm pretty sure a romantic decision won't be made whatsoever on Yuuya's part, just not in his nature and too close to the end now. Not like I'll have any problems with the Harem end though...

Not happening. My guess is that Yui and Yuuya will confess. Yui will temporarily regain her mind of steel long enough to confess, and then once that's outta the way, returns to Jelly and melts into Yuuya's arms.

And then bad shit will happen because goddamnit this is Alternative.

Hope you got the angels voice coz I'm with you!!!!

Seeing Yui in the armor suit is getting me death flags... Will she just watch Yuuya from afar wearing a cheer leading costume? No problem every time Yuuya returns they will share a hot kiss and... and.. *blushes...

Anyway, nothing special with this special...

To think that, we could have had that kind of quality on every episode! It makes me kind of mad to see how clean everyone looked there too. It's a shame they didn't get a huge budget for this series.

I honestly think they've been waiting 'til now to make everything look OVA quality.

Well, that's what I'm hoping for since the new OP and DAT ENDING were beautiful!

If there's anything that dawned on me from this episode special, with half of Alaska placed within the hands of another country, Sarah Palin might just finally be able to see them from her house.

In the novels we see Yuuya first. Yui's backstory that the anime shows isn't encompassed until like volume three of the novels.


But I do agree, Yuuya x Yui! With some Cui on the side.
