Wow all hell just broke loose. Didn't expect Yoshino and Mahiro to get taken out that soon, well they wil be saved. The tree of Genesis really favors Hakaze. Wonder what Junichi went to do.

Awesome episode!
This show is truly messing with my head on whenever it was just coincidence or was everything just as planned... For practically anything.

And Hakaze is finally back to the present bringing nothing back.

Totally wild guess (and I have no idea how it would work), but could Aika have been Hakaze pre-Princess of Genesis? I realize this sounds ridiculous and yeah, no idea how it would've worked, but...
Hakaze's had a childhood (Jun's a kind of childhood friend to her), so, no.

Ah, you're right. I totally forgot poor Junichiro! Thanks for reminding me!

I guess I just assumed the new guy would turn out to be the mage of Exodus based on that line in the preview (I can't remember it exactly), but the preview is so vague, it's hardly anything to go on.

Looks like Aika's still the strongest candidate, assuming she isn't going to stay dead.

Well holy crap! Guess this episode decided enough talking on these issues and time to make some stuff happen. Nothing like the world getting torn up and Mahiro and Yoshino getting nearly killed. Apparently the trees were tired of being outstaged by those two .

A lot to think about with this episode. Just a lot of chaos going on.

Also have to say this was the most epic tree vs. tree battle I have ever seen .

Great episode.

As I suspected, we're going to keep being thrown little twists, so we'll never really know what the heck the ultimate end-game plan is for Exodus and Genesis.

Actually, a part of me wonders if the entire point of this story is one big trolling of the characters, and it really was all just a bunch of coincidences, and no entities playing puppet master in the background, with the belief that they were, acting as a self-determinant of events.

I wonder, based on the preview, if Mahiro finally finds out about Yoshino. Though, I get the feeling what we saw would be considered a dream state of sorts, likely where his consciousness spends as he recovers from his wound.

Lastly, am I missing something between Evangeline and Spear-man? Or, am I overanalyzing her comment to him that they had a lot to talk about when it was all over.

Magnificent. Ando Masahiro and BONES were born to bring this story to TV.

Yes! those angst boys are out of way! Now, we know that Aika is not the only person branding Yoshino as a criminal. ^_^;;; It's yet another episode with Samon's feeling down. orz ORZ orz ORZ

The princess is back. She is now at the center of the stage. She should spend more time for action than quoting Shakespeare 's play.

Yeah the show sadly isn't very popular. This episode was very good though.

I can honestly say I’ve never seen anything in anime quite like that final sequence. With Beethoven’s ethereally beautiful “Tempest” sonata as a backdrop and Aika reading Miranda’s speech from the play, chaos and devastation rain down everywhere – including upon our two main characters. What a synergy – Beethoven, Shakespeare, and anime at it’s most imaginative and grandiose. If stuff like that doesn’t make you glad to be an anime fan I’m not sure what would – there’s certainly no other art form in the world that could have given us what we just witnessed. Maybe it’s rose-colored nostalgia but it feels as if this sort of soaring ambition was more common in anime once than it is now, where the focus has shifted so heavily towards a very narrow subset of interests and studios have become so much more risk-averse. I’ll give full credit to BONES – they may have had some swings and misses lately, but they’ve never shied away from taking chances.

When Yoshino split open I was like O____O Interesting stuff as things are escalating quickly. Beethoven's "Tempest" to back things up. How fitting.

Maybe it's time this got its own subforum? it IS 2-cour after all.

Anyway, I am eagerly awaiting the 2nd half of a series that has been really underrated since it started. Great storytelling and I have no idea how it's going to end. Can't wait

Views and post counts are pretty low, relatively, so I really doubt it'd ever get a sub-forum.

Anime with sub-forums with low activity (Hayate), are vestiges of previous seasons when activity was much higher.

Beautifully written! I wholeheartedly agree. The length this show goes to create the mood and atmosphere to fit the theme for each episode is simply amazing. What makes it even more impressive is the fact how little story they are working with. Episode 12 literally had about a minute worth of story that was stretched to 20 minutes, and yet I wasn't resentful. I just know intuitively that it must be a good thing.

Bah, TERRIBLE episode. No Aika flashback.

And no, as much as I love HanaKana, just her voice don't count

Actually, activity in Hayate started to drop like a rock BECAUSE it got a sub-forum. I remember it easily putting 4 pages per episode, but barely broke 1 after it got its sub-forum sometime in the middle of S1. Probably is the best example in which it shows that sub-forums actually stifle discussion, rather than promote it.

(Of course, certain shows needed to have its discussion cut down a bit... remembering Muv-Luv pre-subforum was pretty darn hectic )

I liked that little Yoshino x Hakaze interaction

"So you are a villain" scene was very nice even with that small fanservice

totally didn't expect the two of them getting killed like that. It was TOO much of a coincidence! wonder what they'd think when they're healed.... (and it's kind of funny how Yoshino is with a girl while Mahiro ends up with poor Samon. That really brings down the tension.).
