Well she is the head priestess (or so it appears) after all.
And by the way the one who talked to Flange in Ep11 was a different priestess and she acted more or less the same.

If that's a coincidence, it's an amazingly fortuitous one so I'd be more surprised if it wasn't deliberate.

Things you don't expect to see on AnimeSuki no. n of x...!

I had thought that Pinion had some kind of 50's greaser style look, but I get your reference too.
Certainly though I think his change of hairstyle reflects his change of heart, and he really shouldn't go back to the greaser look!

I watched the episodes just lately, without checking the total number of them, (my fault), and I was just preparing myself to a grim period for the cast subjugated to Kugel. Period that would have been solved thanks to Ledo allying with the Earth Hideuze ... instead this grim period is already finished, well it's not even started.

man, Episode 12 was very heavy.
Pinion kind of was a hothead at the beginning of this climax arc, but I think it made the point where he made his decision on what side to go on MUCH more powerful. Best face turn ever.

I'm suddenly imagining this episode everytime the camera focuses on his face and he yells a line, that its a Super Robot Wars cut of him talking before firing something.

Thought it was funny that after taking off the mask, and the paint rubbed off, Pinion turned into a hunky bishonen lol.

Enjoyed Rack's re-entry as a cast member into this whole thing.

Spoiler for twist:

The fight between Striker and Chamber was pretty cool; it's definitely my favorite fight scene from this show. lol

And I'm very curious about this Stairway to Heaven. It could turn out to be some kind of secret super weapon of mass wubwub or something totally unexpected. Some people here speculated that it's some method to get to space? That would be a pretty interesting twist.

I'd like to know what the Stairway to heaven is. COuld it be a dormant killer satellite? a mech kept in storage?

More likely I believe it is the activation key to the wormhole gate mention in episode 9. IF the $it really hit the fan they can shoved Stryker right through that gate along with Chamber and Ledo.

Problem solved?

Wouldn't Oldham be a real dick if he knew the way to send Ledo back home but always kept it for himself?

Stairway to Heaven sounds to me like a Space Elevator Which might take you up to the wormhole gate but wouldn't necessarily activate it. I guess they could just dump Striker up in orbit but how well that would work, I haven't a clue. Another possibility that comes to mind is it's some sort of communications module, seeing the archival footage seemed to be filmed in front of that mast (I can't find that picture from Ep 9 - does anyone remember what thread that was in?). It might be able to reach deep space and/or it might be able to over-ride the mechs in some way. No idea what is going on here yet, though.

Here's the mind f**k:

Spoiler for speculation:


I think the point Urobuchi is trying to make in this series, is that it's not appearances that matter, but the choices and decisions we make that make us human. There is no sense in surviving if we give up that core aspect of humanity.

Yeap! Every series I've seen that he has written pretty much carries the same thematic message.

It's the first series where I've seen him do it so blatantly though... I've always suspected Urobuchi was a little bit of a voluntaryist, but now I'm pretty darn sure.

Probably 'cause he's still a virgin.

We don't know yet that Kugel died of disease. He may have been fatally injured during his arrival on Earth. His life support system may have been damaged, and he died of dehydration, starvation, or asphyxiation. It's also possible that Striker murdered him. We simply don't know yet why Kugel died.

I'd love it if Striker gave a speech to Ledo like Chamber did in episode 10. It probably won't happen. Striker's fleet was too obviously designed to look bad with the grey color scheme and sea-turfing those people. If they wanted to give Striker a compelling speech they would have developed the fleet a little differently and given less focus on that.

It's a shame though. I would've loved a clash of views and arguments between Kugel, Ledo, Striker, and Chamber. But Kugel is dead and I can't expect much from Striker now.

Also: Pinion was pretty cool. And Rackage has nice eyes.
