There was a 14 year Emperor of China in the Ching Dynasty. He was know as one of the best emperor China ever had. he rule for 60 years. But he did have to start off his reign with a blood bath killing most of his advisors who was in actual control the empire.

Another 9 for me, like last ep, especially due to the immensely poweful Aoi/Mashiro scene (without it, a 8).

And now excuse me while I get myself a hanky. For real.

It (she?) was with her the entire time, it seems.

Who says she crossed the desert to find Arika? Mikoto was probably separated with her.

Yes, there was always a Lord Protector of one type or another in the west. In China and the Ptolemies Egypt there were some extremely powerful court eunuchs, and in one Sino case it was the emperors mother who was actually ruling behind the scenes.

No offence to the younger members of this forum, but most nations usually felt it would be political suicide to be run by a 15 year old. They would indulge them where possible, but generally ignored their orders until the monarch reached a certain age.

The music enhanced a lot to dramatize the momentum of Aoi's last goodbye for Mashiro.

I applaud SUNRISE for manipulating the chain of events from slow angst to climatic demise throughout this episode. In no moment whatsoever I felt that the scene was rushed; Aoi's death??? was powerful indeed.

I don't think Mashiro has absolute rule either.

In the beginning of ep. 11, if I remember correctly, Sergay and his assistant were talking about a potential tax-hike proposed by Mashiro.
The key thing there is that Mashiro's proposal still has to be approved by the "parliament" or something like that.

But as you said above, the "parliament" would most likely indulge her anyway, and Sergay's assistant also said so.

Whooo, some strong stuff here. I'll get my tissue ready for Sunday when I see Doremi's sub.

Nagi...*sighs and applauds* couldn't have been more brilliant - not like he had to try very hard anyway. ^^;
Sergay's going to have a LOT of time to think - being injured and all. Nagi probably has Nina with him so that he doesn't try to escape - what better incentive to stay behind than your own daughter tending to your wounds? *nods* Very slick plans here.

As sad as it is to say, I don't think Mai was anywhere NEAR the refugees that forced Aoi over. She was lost in a FOREST...unless she came out and still didn't tell anyone...c'mon Arika...WHERE ARE YOU - ARE YOU WITH MAI OR NOT!?

But I must say...Nina looks hawt in her Meister Robe.

Cats seem to be special in the Sunrise universe.

But yeah Mikoto was already with her.

Strange though, so that big explosion sent everyone flying in all directions? And only a few come out with little or no scratches?

I'm looking forward to that sad scene in a few hours. So, is there like no conclusion on Arika and Nina's fight at all? I shouldn't have jinxed it. Midori looks like MH Midori in the preview. That feels really nostalgic.

Well Aoi's "demise" was much more touching than Erstin's. It's official, the killing will keep happening.

So... who's next!?

Other than that

+More Mashiro
+More drama
+MIYU, Natsuki, Nao, Sergay's spy
+Aoi's scene (not that I wanted her to die but it was well done)
++Very little Arika (I had been hoping for this since... episode 1)


-Not enough Nina
-Not enough Sergay
--Mai is still non-existant.

Or Nina has yet to break down completely and turning wholesome psychotic like Kaede in Shuffle!?
