Anyone else get the feeling this series is trying to convey a message about life? That life shouldn't be forever nor should anyone be immortal. Like the whole cycle of life thing and you should live to your fullest with the life you have. Their decaying is just like human aging. So like pretty much try to humanize robots or something. Anyone else think or feel this way or is it just me?

Yeah we do ---we talked about it during the first half of the series.

Oh, that was a long time ago. Didn't really start paying attention to the Casshern thread til of late. So, only a few more episodes to go, wonder what kind of ending we're going to get. I'm thinking of a passive ending, not good or bad just blah.....

Spoiler for past:

the whole show is basically a metaphor about life. this was especially evident when Dune was covering the flowers.

anywho, the fight scene was beautifully animated, but the rest of the ep was fugly. i'm hoping the series can conclude strongly.

Or they could leave us hanging and finish it in an OVA.

Hard to believe that Oji is going to find a cure or that all problems are going to be solved in 6 episodes.

Just seen the 20th episode. Eunyoung Choi did really good work in this episode and the last sequence with Luna/Casshern is so beautiful. I don't like make many speculations so I prefer to say nothing and enjoy this show

I actually thought the episode looked great in terms of visuals. It really captured the desolation of the scenes. That one shot of all the dead robots was especially something.

And the whole twist about Luna's true nature makes thing even more interesting than they were before.

Anyways I cannot wait for the OST

I think when he used "fugly" he was referring to the overall fluidity or consistency of the animation (which wasn't very good in episode 20). Meanwhile, the art was beautiful in the episode, and this includes the ethereal and almost cosmic backgrounds in the episode.

Regardless, it was still a good episode, and I'm looking forward to what happens next.

Ah okay I can see that, I guess besides that fight scene there really wasn't a lot of movement in this episode. Although I don't really think the episode needed much to convey what it wanted to, so I guess they saved a little bit on the animation budget with this episode.

It's not hard to believe. He's been gone for quite a bit already --- just count up the episodes.

I don't actually think a lot of movement is needed in this series, as shown in this episode and like you pointed out. Plus it helps having such stunning visuals to take our mind of it.

Is Yu Ominae ever going to stop posting credit shots and talk about the show?

Try browsing the thread first because we've been talking about it. You could even do a search.

After watching the first couple episodes I thought it was a show about how people view death actually. I really saw a metaphor between the robots having to learn to accept that they will die and how humans always know that they will. This show feels rather philosophical to me in some parts.

Well either way felt pretty bad for Dune. Manged to survive so much and fell here. Though guess if you fight Casshern a few times and Dio your bound to not make it. Still not lost on the irony that he only died after finding 'Luna'. Nothing else could kill him until then. What a depressing state to struggle to keep on going for all that time and to get that Luna as your reward.

This Luna really is depressing to watch. Could only imagine the feeling of the old Luna seeing the fate of Dune. Really its' been a while in the series since we had a death that I really felt bad about.

Think everyone has handled all the speculating so I'll just leave it on my impression there .

LOL!

Been too busy to catch up on the minor casts for CS.

I'm currently finishing up homework for my Japanese class. As such, I had little time to catch up on it for the meantime.

Only thing I liked is the possible Casshern/Lyuze link.

You know I don't think it is 100% certain Luna was not always like this. People's memories of her might be selective. Like they want to remember the best about her and don't remember what she was really like.

Dune did not seem surprised to find Luna like this.

I'm pretty sure if Luna was always like this someone would have put her into the ground before Casshern did . Would Lyuze's sister have seriously used her time to protect someone like that? Memories would have to be pretty darn selective if not completely delusional to confuse what we saw in episode 20 for Luna before Casshern's attack. After all wouldn't remembering the best of her mean she had to actually act like that at least once ?

Dune not being surprised....well the guy has had his ass kicked quite a few times in the show. This is probably the best Luna he was going to get so probably just accepted it.

May not be 100% certain, but think it's pretty close to it.

Well another possibility is not everyone actually came into contact with Luna directly like Dune did. I mean they could work for her and never have actually met her.
