Saw episode two.

A drastic improvement in both animation and soundtrack qualities from episode one. There were more variety in the background tracks played, and this time I could perceive that the Simoun CGI effects blended suitably with the watercolor landscape. Even I could feel inside the cockpit observing the Simoun flying by.

I really did not feel anything out of the norm with Neville's flashback of Amuria greeting her as her pair with the kiss. On the contrary, I felt it something natural like a formality from Amuria to greet her pair and welcome her, though I won't deny that Neville could have felt a connection to Amuria.

Aeru is solid about staying 'Simoun Simula' until the war is won. She's an interesting character within the all-broke-out war theme, unlike other main protagonists, she's got a plain morality about enemies always been enemies. Henceforth, she's not distressed about fighting to death or having to take enemies' lives in the battlefield.
However, I'm not fond for her hasty and reckless attitude about her views on the war for the start. Though its necessary so as for her to grow up, learning sooner or later that the invader nation are driven by need or motivated to retrieve Simoun technology.

Then, I continue with Paraietta who brings to me memories of Mai-Otome because her voicing is done by Ami Koshimizu, sounding exactly alike to Nina Wong.

Lastly, for my last impression I think that Erif overreacted after coming out from the spring. As a girl, 'he' could just had remained a Simula until the war was won thus giving 'him' more time to properly reflect about 'his' choice. The elders commented that they cannot force the Simula's decision to go to the spring, furthering evidence that nobody partaked in 'his' decision.
'He' simply went to the spring as felt obligated to carry on the ritualistic tradition. 'He' did not take into thought seriously the pros and cons of whether becoming man or staying as a woman. It was the pressure that stressed 'him' and strained 'his' future vision just because 'he' had to visit the spring as a must-do duty.

A note to Doremi fansubs: You made a mistake with the age. After turning 17, the girls decide whether or not to visit the spring to choose their gender.

Juunana sai means seventeen-years-old from Japanese Romaji.

THE Reasoning of origin of Aaeru and remaining doubt



The possibility of defector in the Argentum nation:.either of the ancestor of Aael or her all or other-parent?
Why ? We imagine Aael has been pure native Simulacrans just now, but the possibility of her ancester or other parent is origin
from Argentum nation.

<The First reason>
Aael said at Episode 4, "Anyway, our speaking contents won't be understood to Enemy because the Language is different"
But When Aael was chopped off Tesa of the enemy aged soldier, Even in her pitiless character, anything doesn't seem to throw tears for the enemy who doesn't understand circumstances.
"Aael seem to throw tears for "an aged enemy soldier", but anyone who knows that true reason...."
Aael ,It might have been ..enemy's language.. ..understanding.. made in reality...

Deux ("Guragief") is said at Episode 4, "Reason that is here ..her existance at this place reason.."
Seeing of true reason is actually made to be expected.



<The Second reason : weak and weary reason>

Her eyes look like "Odds eye".
If so, it is sure to look red that both eyes reflect though the blood of the dying enemy might have reflected possibly.
Her village is in a frontier near the southern part ,in a word, to the front.
There can be a mixed blood possibility with other races.


...
<BBS argue to Episode4>
The related reason does in ..Aael.. combat there, and it grows up and the nature like the male of ..wanting sex decision.
That Argentum nation try is compulsorily lucky to a man, and it is village coming from in a near southern part, and if father or mother is a defector, and it is a so-called half where Imperial princess nation of her, Arel will be ..reason.. lucky to the front from the Argentum-nation the done country it including the crying meaning. the child of the coming defector
Isn't if which of parents the enemy alien, the soldier of the enemy nation....what.. ..whether say.. ..solving..?

If the future is not seen about there, fixation might be impossible.

I'm really starting to like this series. At first I thought this would be a generic fan service to the max (yuri style) anime, but it is actually very interesting in many ways.

I can't even begin to describe how interesting the whole setting is. I mean we have the religious fanatics who believe they are the chosen people of God and thus invincible and on the other hand we have the craftsmen's nation who relentlessly launch invasions against the religious people so they can obtain the techonology behind the Simoun. Then one day the craftsmen attack with such advanced war machines that the Simoun start suffering casualties and the imperial nation's image of being completely protected by their god, Tempus Spatium (?), shatters.

I too get freaked out every time the men speak with such feminine voices, though. AND WHY, OH WHY, DID THEY HAVE TO KILL OFF AMURIE IN THE FIRST EPISODE!? Se was the hottest of them all.

Episode 3 Synopsis, part 1

Simoun - シムーン
Episode 3: "Distant War" (遠い戦争)

There was a lot of expository dialogue in this episode, especially in the first half, and it's really stretched my Japanese vocabulary to try to decipher it all. I'm sure that I've gotten some of it wrong, and missed other important details; any comments and/or corrections from anyone with a better understanding would be welcome....

IM starting to get into the show more now after the second episode i can feel the emtional turmoil that some of the Chor Tempest are going through that emotinal attactment is making me like it. Having to choose between growing up or fighting in a war to save your country where in the war you may die and never be able to enter the pool or in turn enter and live the rest of your life thinking you could have done more. The mech designs and airships are very unique combat is more like a ritual than fighting.

The enemy that their fighting against do they have the same unique traits like choosing a sex at 19 or is it only this country??

People in the Simoun country of Simulacrum normally choose their sex at 17, but Simoun Sibylla get to delay their choice if they want to.
Spoiler for episode 4:
There's lots of info (not including that, yet) on the Wikipedia page.

Hmmm...I kind of doubt she's gone for good. I'm sure she'll come back.

Now that's a dilema. I really liked Amulia but I usually don't like characters miracuoulsy coming back to life. Well, let's just hope that if she returns the explanation won't be in a GSD/Mai Otome style (i.e. either ridiculously implausible/dumb or non-existent). But I think it would be silly to have so much angst from Neville only to see the reason for these strong emotions come back into the series, rendering Neville's (expected) change in personality a bit pointless.
On the other hand, it might kind of fun watching Amuria going mad with jealousy since Neville will be flying with Aeru judging by the opening.

Futaba-chan, great effort in summarising which is really appreciated by people who don't have the patience to wait for the sub like me.

Formality? I don't think so, just compare Amuria's kisses with those of the others which are a lot more subdued, so to speak.. She either loves her job or her new partner...or both.

Is the enemy nation called Argentum? I thought I heard something like, "Shou-koku."
