Click below for a sneak peek at Darth Alice...

I've waited 16 episodes for that :)

I seriously need to catch up to this show. The gif above tingles the fancy of the shounen fan in me.

True, but it's just beginning...

Nuts, how strong does the girl have to be to lift AND swing that thing anyway? That's like 7 and a half ft of violent sword death. :uhoh:

Pretty obvious that all the money for the show went to this and the last few episodes :heh:

--> Hmm, no comment at this moment :p

Agree with the fact that section 1 are a bunch of idiots. Too bad Hans didnt bbq them all. Preview for the next ep looks kickass ... And yes i believe that Orland is fireproof :D

You shouldn't call everyone a "bloke", my British friend. ^^
Confused me for a bit who you were actually refering to.
But I concur. Military in PS doesn't seem to be too smart. People shooting pistols don't even have a useful stance to shoot from and I just watched Venus vs Virus and saw one of the girls going into Weaver-stance to actually hit something.
The only thing that seems to have slipped you by is that about them engaging Alice with those bludgeons/axes or whatever they were.
They had to wait for permission to actually fire/kill her, although I would reckon that one swipe from those "farming tools" (actually looked rather dumb) would be enough to do her in. Didn't really expect them to have to get permission for that.
And they could have wallopped Hans with the cannons of their vehicles, those guys seem to be mechanized infantry after all!
Man, that fearsome SecI troop seems to have the same right for self defense as Blue Helmets. -_-

What were the documents that was given to the silver guy? Why were they important?

Trax 2007-01-24 19:28

That Section I stuff was simply ridicilous, seems I'm not the only one who thought so...

They let the most important character get away, he even walked at a leisurely pace!
Then they are too stupid to notice Hans is holding a weapon; they might not know about flamethrowers but it looks pretty suspicious.
And then they proceed to try out his armor with their pop guns, instead of calling in the tank. Did they use that thing for ramming purposes only, and forgot to bring the ammo?
To top it off, they forget they have guns and try to fight Alice with their whatevers. Even if they don't have permission to eliminate her, they could just shoot her in the leg rather than letting her slash around.

Bad, bad writing. Seriously lacking credibility here.

Cyz 2007-01-24 21:24

Seen ep. 16

--> That's a good episode. That guy in the mask's too skilled for rabbit face's bodyguards. What kind of weapon did he use anyway? All I see was a blade with wires. Anyway, Alice is in her Darth Maul weapon is pretty awesome to see. Makes you wonder, how on earth does a small body of hers able to wield that thing? Oh! and Kauplan woman is creepy when she said she needed samples. But hey, evil scientists all look creepy :heh:

--> Next ep. 901 ATT vs. 908 HTT. If Oland can tolerate bullets and shells from a tank during his Anti Tank Trooper mode, I wonder how will he fare up with a hot fire?

She taps into "Hammer Space" as Darth Alice :uhoh:

About the serious lapse in judgement for the Section 1 crew. I think there is a big difference between slaughtering a horde of nameless peons and doing bodily harm to a ranking officer in their own army. It's going to be difficult to explain a dead Lt. on a mission to the same place, better to attempt to incapacitate the girl.

Another thought would be how underestimated S3 has always been. Sure there's the joke unit stigma, but when you have a walking tank stopper, a Casanova hitting the S1 secretary every night :cool: , a genius loli magnet and a dog taking bits off officer's heads, you would have to give some measure of respect to them.

Otherwise, there's going to be that "Oh! SH..." moment when facing Darth Alice and her Reckoning.

ZeusIrae 2007-01-25 16:24

Section was useless but since darth alice is their opponent,I will forgive them.

I wouln"t be suprised if teh white guy is from a special unit too.

Guido 2007-01-25 16:59

The Slasher
Action pops up again this week.

Mione is a plain wuss rat who only can be taught for discipline through use of force, as Silver Mask chastised the rat man's underdogs for lack of proper manners.

Now I watched with my own eyes what you meant with Darth Alice.

If Section I- Claymore One is just a division of hardened guys covered in armor and helmet, whose only skills resort to the use of weapons and lightning offensives lacking technique and finesse, then I do agree with the rest of you that they are just a bunch of pimps and small shrimps that they would not be a match for Alice.

Good cliffhanger to conclude the episode.

What happened to the 900:2-7 subjects?

bkg9990 2007-01-25 18:57

those section 1 guys didn't even see the "emissary"


Sorrow-K 2007-01-30 04:52

You guys can say what you will, but this way far and away the best ep of the series to date, IMO. I mean, it actually had an incredible amount of tension and drama, which has been missing from all episodes up til now. Makes me glad I stuck with this show.

I do agree that there could have been a little more action, and it did progress quite slowly, but it was building towards the next ep and there was actually atmosphere in this ep that had been missing from a lot of the show up til now. And the plot got interesting too. I think this ep was a sign that there's about to be a massive improvement in everything in this show. Fingers crossed that that's true.
