If I'm interpreting the timeline correctly, that year is the time during the series, not after.

Thanks for the information. I kinda avoid that website because of the possible trojans ... At any rate, I normally only download Chinese subs from Sumisora and HKG, sometimes also CASO. Their translations are normally very accurate. And yes, talking about speed... sometimes I found their subs earlier than the raw...
(maybe some English fansub group should try just to translate their sub instead...)

I just re-watched the episode 12 with the sub you mentioned. They are actually pretty good to my standard. At least I have not found any obvious mistake with their translation (of course, my Japanese is very limited)...

Interesting enough, I have thought the subtitle of this episode is "beautiful words of love" but it turns out to be "beautiful harmony..." not that I know what that means though...

I think I remember finding decent DMZG subs for some shows, and some not so good. I haven't seen any for this show. The speed and abundance of Chinese subbing always impresses me, even if the quality is very variable. I use ZoomPlayer/MediaPlayer Classic plus the RealMedia Splitter so I don't have to use RealPlayer for all those .rmvb files.

My virus/spyware program hasn't told me about anything on Greedland, but in fact that is the least of my worries, compared to a certain unnamed network. The BD sub is also on bt.popgo.net.

As for English groups just translating Chinese subs, that definitely happens from time to time, as it does with manga scanlations. I think at least one group is bilingual -- but better in Chinese than in English.

I did mean to say that, on second thought, the Sakura no Moe sub didn't seem so bad to me.

I totally agree with your assessment of the situation...

And the next episode. Let's see whether the love between Hagino and Mari can pull a Lynn Minmay out of their desperate situation...

Oh my, now that was quite a blast from the past In truth, I've been wracking my brain for the past couple of days trying to figure out how this ending will play out.....thus far, I've not found anything that doesn't sound horrifically trite or is just an evil cliffhanger from hell.

Kieli--I forgot to mention that. I'm worried about a cliffhanger from hell or an ending that leaves so many questions that it'll drive my brain looney.

Well, Floser messed up one of the most important lines of the episode:

Timecode 12:10, Fake Shibariel:

Floser: "And for the well thought acts you've done."

Correct translation: "To develop this Thought Arresting (materializing, condensing) Weapon."

Everything else (before that line, as I didn't watch the rest yet) seems ok.

Somehow after watching this episode i dont feel so excited about the anime anymore ... maybe because everything got explaned or mari and hagino thing. Nothing else can really happen anymore exept Shivariel dieing maybe?. BLUE was an special suicidal experiment (without crew knowing) for Shivariel...i guess she had no luck that Hagino and Tsubael survived that. Would be awesome if Mari was the cause for that...,but theres 1ep left and they won't go any deeper probably. So we never know if Mari has any SPECIAL connection with BLUES Emiru Force drive or not... oh well atleast we know that aliens will rule fiew centurys so it's like a final episode.
as for that mistranslated part in floser release, ... i didn't even notice actually, everything kinda made sense hehe. Thanks for pointing it out Kazu-kun

We still have the suspense of whether those two can survive. I think a lot of us are praying for them now......

I suppose I'm the same a little, but I think it has to do with gearing myself up for a possible bad ending, probably would have been more excited if I knew it was going to be a happy ending for sure, but still looking forward to it a lot.

Really hoping that they manage to fit in the unanswered stuff about Mari, I will be really disappointed if they dont.

Maybe whatever is special about Mari will be the key for those two to make it out alive. Wouldn't that be really cool?

Not me. I'm more excited, if anything. There is so much more to happen and so much more that I'm sure they will explain. Will they escape? To where? How? What about the negotiator in episode one? Who is she? Who is she going to negotiate with? What caused Hagino's attack on Mari in ep1, and her being knocked cold by touching Mari in a later ep? What will the invasion look like? How will our horime friends make out during the invasion?

I actually hate it when the climax of a show comes in the final scene. I much prefer to have some time after the climax to see how everyone adjusts to it, and for my feelings to settle down. I think revisiting the negotiator will provide that cool-down period.

And anyway, we now have a whole episode during which Mari and Hagino will know they are in love and act accordingly.

By the way, I'm betting on a fairly good end, but a sad end would also be pretty strong. A dream is totally unlikely, in my opinion. Even if we know the invasion will succeed, we don't know exactly how, and life will go on in any case. In a way, it seems to me more like a beginning than an end. Bring on a second series! Featuring Mari and Hagino's descendants, perhaps.

About that ... in ep12 there's some serious telepathy between Mari and Hagino, around 2:26 and in the end when they confess. Or was it just done like that to save some time? Seemed like intentinally shown connection...maybe has something to do with that what you mentioned

They have never talked telepathicaly before.

Well we already knew from previous eps that Mari and Hagino have a telepathic connection when

One can only hope. Given the past track record of animes of this type, I'd say our chances were REALLY slim. I do want to stay positive about it, though. I'd love to be proven wrong.

I'm already insane for this show. As soon as it ends, I am so going to purchase it for my collection *G*

There's a critical information that I missed.

Why are they invading Earth?Surely they explained it somewhere but I can't recall anything.

Because

1. They have the power to;
2. They have chosen to.

And of course, all aliens fall for Earth female......

even alien females
