Show was okay, I'm kind of unfulfilled though that Van stays exactly the same after this whole ordeal. and Fasarina turned me on when she faught Van I'm a sad person.

I have a question what did Joshua go on to do? He mentioned something about getting his brother back, and van said it would take 100 years or something to that extent, I was really confused.

From what I can remember, Claw Man's base got destroyed too and a lot of it sunk into the sea, so that might make finding the pieces\bodies take a long while. Also, I also doubt CM's workers would just leave dead bodies in front of him during all that birthday stuff, they probably disposed it somewhere.

Yeah, so thats my take on why the Claw Man did what he did. I feel pretty embarassed after that, so I hope none of my friends read these boards.

^ Interesting theory, but I feel Gadved had more to do with it than the Claw man. He was the one who pointed CM to Van and his bride after all.

i watched the whole series last month and i saw it like this:

Spoiler:


that's the way I see it... this show is about 80% great, but a couple of the early fillerish eps are misplaced and the actual resolving of the conspiracy and cult of the Claw Man is rushed because of it... but several of the character are really great (Van and Ray especially)... I almost feel like the show would have been better off to be structured more along the lines of Shinichiro Watanabe's shows... sure, there's a through line for the plot of the whole series, but he only uses the last three or four episodes to resolve it, not the last 12 eps, the way this show does...

also, what's with the show being on "Planet Endless Illlusion"???? It could have been much better to be on Earth in the distant future, post apocolyptic war or something...

And lommm, now that I think about it, you're probably dead on with that. Seeing how

and how
Spoiler:
Add in the fact that Gadved is pretty much a disciplined man with strict principles, I think you hit the nail on the head.

About EI, from what I can remember, It was supposed to be a prison planet and the Original Seven was the enforcers. I have no idea how Claw Man's past ties into this (I might have to rewatch it again... later).

from what i remember CW was quite young in the flashbacks.... i assume they mean for him to be very old... and from what i understood... once an Original Seven pilot was linked up to a suit, then the pilot would live indefinitely, as long as the Armor remained intact... so Gadved should be really old, but he doesn't age.... like how Van doesn't age for the end of the series but Wendy and Kameo did...

CW was a refugee on the moon and apparently, EI was already populated....

I loved the series, although the second half felt a bit cliche. Of the early episodes, there were a few really lame villains, but also some interesting ones. What kept the series strong despite a cliched main story (at times), and the occasional bad filler was that it always focused on the human element and characters. In particular, I adored the El Dora Five for representing the heart of this series. Cliche? Yes. But they were so cool, I couldn't care less. I'd have happily watched a 26 episode series where they were the main protagonists, especially if it was set in the past when Chizuru and her Pink amigo were still alive. Those old men are far more interesting than Van (at least for me).

Just making sure you also watched the little 'extra' at the end.

Damn that turtle is HUGE!

Yea, this series really should be more popular, I'd even say this is THE No.1 best series of the recent three years for me. It's just perfect in every single aspect, for me at least
