That was excellent again ... the show has found its stride (even though the preview for 18 looks fillerish again)

IMHO the best episode so far, with a good mix of action, drama and pernicious scheming in the shadows. I rarely pull nines or better, but this ep deserves it. Delivered with a chilling and sickening feeling to the stomach in several parts.

Lots of fighting in this episode

Darth Alice Vs Neo [His Kung fu evidently wasn't strong enough ]

Hunks Vs Connaly

Can Opener Vs Flame thrower.

Finally capped off with a large dose of Manly tears. Good episode this one.

Nice episode. You had some great fighting with Alice really kicking some ass. Pretty good move kicking the blade out of the ground with the metal boots and taking that guy down. Hopefully we can get more episodes like this.

You can feel bad for Hans. Watching his comrades die like that and being unable to do anything but watch it. His comrades suddenly feeling the burns that they had picked up using their weapons. Living in that suit knowing if he ever took it off he'd be dead. Wonder what kind of bullets those other soldiers were using since they punched right through his armour when it seemed so invulnerable. Unless punching through it with those big (scissors?).

Those guys at Kauplan are seriously getting on my nerves. Doing horrible things like this to people and now using the dead body of Hans for their twisted purposes. There is just so much that we don't know what's going on. Even the military planning on dealing drugs to refugees under the city in order to make some cash. Even this 'Silver Wheel' group having soldiers in the military, so Mione wouldn't be able to talk.

I guess since they are from silver wheel, so their bullets are specially made ones. Like armor piercing ones.

quite the sad ep...i feel sorry for hans now soo close yet soo far >.<

Good ep this, Darth Alice held her own despite Mahne taking its toll, loved the kick tactic. I look forward to the next time she unleashes it, but I hope we learn how she developed the skill and built the stamina to weild it. Orland was awesome against Hans, but it was tragic to see him so devastated by his inevitable death. Again Muse's cruelty was brought home in that little exchange with her assistant ~ dismissing the medical benefits of the research in favour of the military ones. And I'm glad Mione's death was unceremonious - the kind deserving of such a wretch.

If we're talking about next time Alice uses Mähne, I hope she aquires a horse and armor in the meantime. Seriously, if she was going to fight on foot, why didn't she use a normal sword?

The Darkness that Cannot Still Be Saved

The impressive quality portrayed in this episode for development and twist in the storyline has made to yearn why GONZO did not pull it full during the first arc.

Hans became to my eyes such a sympathetic and pitiful character once he recalled the sad memory of his past.

Another contribution could be that when

but for all we know, it could just be a plot device, after seeing the silliness of the previous episode that could just the thing.

The only saving grace was Darth Alice.



p.s:

Oland has some impressive face hugging tears, they stick to his face even when he leans his head over at a 45 degree slant.

I was very surprised with Oland's on his Berseker mode.
Spoiler:


Just to make an observation the way how the conspiracy is handling the Empire's politics unseen is a comparison to the political turmoil the Galactic Republic experienced before the rise of the Empire in the Star Wars prequel trilogy.

The armour-cutter was foreshadowed in Ep16. Oland keeps it inside a huge pouch.

Cheers.

Maybe she thinks it's a lot cooler than normal swords. Besides, you just go start swinging that thing (as long as you have plenty of stamina to go along with it) and you have good chances of hitting someone attacking you I guess "size does matter" in Alice's case

Wow. That was a really great episode, by far the best yet. The show is finally starting to live up to some of the angst it promised at the beginning.

Now, please please please don't mess it up by making the next episode a light-hearted filler ep... the preview for 18 is making me worry.

Bravo, this episode restored all my faith to this series. Hans' past and what happened in the end was intense.
Spoiler:


Yeah, episode 18 looks like filler, but at least they give some screentime to Stekkin, who until now has been just minor character.
