Well, sir, your have just advanced my excitement for the episode by a few orders of magnitude I'll get around to watching this in due course, but it looks like we gotta wait a year now to really see how they're going to go about wrapping up the story.

Thoroughly enjoyed it. As usual, it ends with a cliffhanger - but this one comes with a one year wait!

So why do people fight, anyway?
Perhaps the meaning of existence lies within their will to fight.
People feel a sense of accomplishment through battle.
And itís also a fact that the ones actually fighting are never perceived as being tainted.

Weakest episode so far. Not to mention animation is worse overall, and really lame in some places.

Could you be specific? Animation is top notch as usual, the only lame/lazy part was copy/pasting scenes from CCA, really wished they could've redone them. It was certainly lacking in MS fights, but then again this episode serves as the buildup to the final so that's acceptable. Plus, the many dialogues do contribute to the overall story and characters as well.

They could have done some more MS fighting considering how long we have to wait for the final battle.....

Good episode overall. Not sure why Mineva tells Full Frontal the location of the box and didn't have a confrontation with Banagher afterwards. He gets pissed that she tells Frontal the location and then all is fine?

Marida went and talked to him, did you see the episode dubbed or subbed?

I'm looking forward to the single. I've been dying to hear it for months.

Any idea if "Sternengesang" was included in the episode as well?

OK I have seen the episode now!

While there was not much action, I liked the episode alot, more character development and it gave us a nice breather before the final episode which will likely be full of action

Pros:
Character development, we really needed more of this
Appropriately set up, and forwarded the plot to the final stage

Cons:
Not much, there is one though.....using CCA scenes.....I know they did it for nostalgia purposes, but imo it backfired against the quality of the episode

In short this whole episode was in preparation for Episode 7

8.5-9/10, Excellent episode!

Notes:
-I love how Takuya's "Magic" is slapping on tons of weapons onto the Unicorn lol, thats like something an Elementary student would do
-The Unicorn modes are REALLY growing on me, especially at the end of the episode
-Zinnerman: "It doesnt have legs" - FullFrontal: "YOU DONT SAY"

Takuya's plan was really to slap on everything the Nahel Argama had onto the Unicorn, since it was going to act as a vanguard, his idea was pretty smart

Also.

All she said is still believe what he believes in. Doesn't explain why Mineva told Frontal and why Banagher didn't confront her after he got pissed......

I watched it subbed on my PS3.

The 'talkies', as I like to call them, are a great means of fleshing out motivations. Those who wished to see more action shouldn't be disappointed: it means that now that we're clear on who wants to do what for their own reasons, the explosions and lasers will be more meaningful come the finale Now, being disappointed about the fact that it's going to be 2014 when we see things close off, on the other hand...
