I think if Gargantia was solely interested in de-escalating the situation and returning to the status quo ante, their best course of action would have been to ask/demand Ledo leave. The pirates come...

Actually Gargantia's actions don't make all that much sense. The fleet commander believes the pirates are out for revenge, so negotiations would be meaningless. In other words, the fleet commander...

Earlier in the conversation Nakamura calls Kasuga a coward and a weakling, so she's sized him up pretty well. She knows that Kasuga can't confess to Saeki (even though he wants to), but she needs...

I'm not necessarily disagreeing with you on what someone like Ledo "should" and shouldn't know, but Ledo as presented has shown both tactical and strategic thinking, so it's not as if he is some...

I agree that for the story, it was a good way to show Chamber's power to the Gargantians. However, Ledo made a rather poor choice by engaging and destroying the entire pirate force. The better...

I don't have much to add to the rotoscoping debate, but my God the sound design is fantastic. Perhaps with the added visual task of reading subtitles our brains miss out on some of the audio...

Well, I don't see how I can possibly assume that if the animation budget was higher the deaths would have played out in a totally different manner. If the climax of your story relies on an event...

I have a slightly different take on the pacing issues of this arc. On its, own, this episode is fairly well-paced as an introduction to the "important" matches in the tourney. We're introduced to...

Well, I'd dispute that there is some praetorian guard hiding somewhere, since they don't show up when Squealer comes out to the Messiah's body. They just let Saki stand around in the open for a few...

First, thanks for the compliment Eragon; it is nice to have an anime that raises some interesting issues and makes you think. That seems to be getting rarer these days.

No one ever explicitly claims this, but I think it's a reasonable hypothesis. The old scientists presumably had to kill off all the existing non-PK humans, otherwise they would continue to create...

You don't think the cause of equality between humans and queerats is just? That's a pretty bold statement to make.
