LOL...the Selvaria vs Alicia fight.
Seriously like a spartan version of Bleach(to be more precise the Zaraki vs. Ichigo fight)
And then we have a Mayin-Vegita style finish...and a ragnite nuke. Man this was somehow wrong to me.
I hoped Selvaria would survive or at least they reveal a much better backstory.
At the very least we know why Maximillian wasn't as interested in her. Afterall she was probably the product of some kind of experiment or at least the subject of some kind of Valkyur enchantment.
Anyways...Welkin is sure still weak as a character. He's somehow really different from his game version(actually it's same to every character).

Well, there goes the nuke. Thank you Selvie, you provided us with much fanservice *salute*
In the end, the chibi flashback plotpoint really didn't add much to the story, it was just...there. And that's probably a good thing.
Yes, that was some DBZ-type fighting there. I think Alicia hit SSJ3.
Cordelia gets her awesome points in this episode because of her reveal, finally.

So next ep, I wonder how much fighting there will be, or if it'll all be talking on how to blow up that giant tank-fortress.

Not only this is a mistake made by General Damon but also of the Military security department. Just think about when you have a big fat tank just standing somewhere a few kilometers away from your capital city. There definetely went something wrong. And a big tank like that makes noises like an earthquake.

How sad it was. However, it's a great serie and Maximilian is nice overall.

I giggle every time I hear Maxi's voice. It's just not a good idea to use Lelouch's voice actor for his role. It's like seeing Agent Smith from the Matrix as the elf guy in Lord of the Rings. MR ANDERSONNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN

YESSSSSSSSSS! You have no idea how happy I am that that fat commander has finally bit the dust. It was just ridiculous with someone like him and all those that accompanied him. Best part of this entire series so far...

wow some had a massive fail at the spot check. seriously the thing is like 10 stories high and 4 football fields big. and welkin and co can't see such a massive tank from the mountains.

oh well seems like they can end it in 2 episodes now. but they cut out the two major things from the game that makes me sad.

Well, what can I say, the events in the game were more logical as usual, then again, what else is new.

Darcsen Cordelia is easily my favorite, though i just have a thing for the Darcsen hair.

The wig is still a bit silly, though it's better then having here wearing the silly head piece for most of the series.

This episode did not give me the emotional impact i was hoping for. Alicia and Selveria remembering each other was pointless nothing actually came of it. Their fight was also very underwhelming. Alicia just went with the motions and whined A LOT and Selveria came out swinging like mad women. Even the animation looked weird during their fight.

Selveria's emotions towards Maximillion was pitiful and he proved to be even more of jack ass then i previously thought "a shame she still had her uses" i cant wait to see this guy fall however lackie #1 took a bullet for blocking his path (he could have just walked around him lol). I guess i could say love leaves us blind and makes us do stupid things blowing ourselves up. Selveria's character could have been done sooooooo much better. I don't like how she just ends up being cannon fodder and then self nukes the entire area. The only good thing about the explosion were those pompous douche bag generals got caught in it.

Squad 7 continues to do a lot of talking

Looks like Welkin finally got a pair go get her tiger. That's if you can get pass the invasion force destroying the city, get pass Maxie-sama and manage to find Alicia amidst the rumble in the creator that use to be a battlefield watch out for body parts

Faldio go on vaca? I'd need a vacation too if i failed at everything i do.

The best part of this episode was the queen spilling the beans about her heritage shes a Darcsen that actually got me i had no idea. But what i enjoyed the most was Maxie's face he looked he needed to take a dump but couldn't quite decide if he had to go at that moment or if he could hold it.

Im hoping to get some backround on how this came to be especially with the Darcsens being hated by majority of the country. Please dont let it be a lame explanation either. Seeing her made me think of how i still think they killed the best character in the series

7/10

so many logics fail in this series so i will not mention anymore

my second favourite character after Isara died too, left with Welkin but he seems to be progressing in turtle speed

those scientists from the experiment years ago choosed Selvaria over Alicia, how wrong were they...

I feel the anime did a bit better in some ways than the game at Selvaria's death. Sure, the DBZ bit was a tad corny (not that I'm complaining, I loved that show as a kid), but the rest of the fight was simply a feast for the eyes. Heck, I plan to incorporate a similar fight into one of my Lone Wulf chapters.
The fight was excellent, also liked that they offered more of a glimpse into her shockingly underdone past as well, but I felt the game death was better. The animie one wasn't bad or anything, still felt sad but
Spoiler for game spoiler:


The whole tank hiding in woods thing was just silly and would love to hear the explanation for that. The meeting, while I prefer the game's longer explanation, execution of Borg and Maximilian's calm reaction (then again, the animie writers may be showing more sense with a more explosive commander over the long term), was still decent and liked the distrust on both sides.

Overall, a good but not great episode.

Watching the episode now, finally...

They kinda rushed the scene with Cordellia showing her true bloodline, but at least they kept it. That was one of the best moments of the game.

And.... the Marmota is totally at the gates in record time. Wow. Squad 7 went from base to standing beside the Marmota like they were going to borrow sugar from the neighbors.
