Did we ever find out what compac drives were made of?

Only the definition and explanation Norb gave.

Konpaku drives are devices that amplify the planet's thoughts meaning the Trapar waves.

Kon means soul, paku means body.

On another note Elena is wearing a mask to be in character or there are so much Trapar that is detrimental to her health. That one IFO guy started to see Trapar.

If so further hint that she is Eureka's daughter?

Representatives like Stanley and Rebecka only have say insofar as their position in Generation Bleu allows. Ivica is employed by Generation Bleu, which means he takes orders from them, not BBW.
Well said, bingo, was about to go through this myself.

I wonder if Nakamura will be smart enough not to try and swing this to his advantage?

Probably not.

Thanks as always ReddyRedWolf, seems like the material nature of compac drives is a possible use for quartz, something like quartz is or is related to what the green part of those drives were made of.

Elena wearing the mask might just be because she's from the original series universe and knows about the health risks of concentrated trappar exposure.

The compac drive most likely is related to the third engine rather than quartz.

I was quite disappointed by the lack of any reference to the Vodarac in this series. I personally thought it would be cool to have some kind of a religion-driven interest in the plot.

Yeah, you know now that I think about it a Vodarac-ish viewpoint could actually have been put in and fit in appropriately quite easily too given all the different interests portrayed about views on who the true enemy is, I guess it is actually a bit surprising we never got a view like theirs from a new faction that felt this way with a bit of a religious take on these aliens (I suppose the closest would have been Naru had we gotten a lot more screentime developing her progression to then giving out the message that the Scub Coral isn't humanity's enemy?).

Agreed, that would suck, I like Toshio, I hope that doesn't happen.

Oh, I was thinking about this when I was re-watching some of the older episodes...but Naru's "sickness"/powers....does anyone else think that it is very similar to having a compaq drive embedded in your body, like Norb? That would explain her powers and her ability to communicate with the scub. I have no idea if it's relevant or not, but, I find it interesting.

Now that you two mention it, wasn't there a scene somewhere in between ep 12 to 17 where we saw her with such things that resemble compac drives embedded on her body? Or am I just being confused with the flashback in the movie where kiddy Holland and Kiddy Talho were seperated just like Norb and Sakuya (even the same animation... damn you, miser Bones)?

Isn't Archetype the base for Type The End? Did Renton send all his garbage to the other world, or what?

Also, they will wrap everyhing up in like 4 eps? 2 eps?

It was in a dream sequencce Ao had in eposode 16 Operation Polaris. I have no idea if she was trying to communicate with him or it was all a dream, but she was basically telling him to protect the scubs. When she pulls down her collar, we see a green light comming from her stomach. We could assume it is a compac drive, but I'm not sure.

We've got 4 to go even if we don't know how the last two will air just yet.

I thought I remembered something like that. Either way, at this point the series can't do much to earn back its dignity, I'm afraid. :\

Sometimes it feels a little frustrating being behind by just one episode, because there's lots to discuss while the discussion with the current episode is still fresh.

Anyways, the nineteenth episode is what I call, "Children to stand up in order to correct their parents' mistakes".

Yeah, keep posting even if a week later

Loved this episode, I think you nailed a bunch of my thoughts coming out of it on a bunch of those characters.

Actually, Ao x Fleur doesn't sound too bad.

Ao x Elena however is straight from a imouto hentai.

How's Ao x Maggie for out-of-nowhere crack pairing?

And no, I'm NOT going to touch on Ao x Truth.
