Its another Gundam 00 shoutout, that butterfly thing.

Still, it goes to show how messed up an anime is when I don't even like the Hikasa Yohko character when usually the voice is enough to make me swoon.

Very smooth opening fight scene at the start.

Spoiler for finale:
And so this is the end for one of the most ill conceived stories of all time. I had a lot of fun bashing the hell out of it atleast.

well, the season ended with a great ep
I think it was a fantastic episode with a really great fight
Spoiler for :

I'm a big Houki fan, and i'm pleased with this(unless THE THING)
btw i'd love to see Tabane join the harem it'd be epic
need season 2 ^^
we really need it... probably the late summer or autumn season it will come...
season 1 covers only the first 3 LN am i right?

Butterfly??? *gulp* (plays System-Turn A99's theme)
Either Turn-A or 0 Gundam(G generation wars original type)
Akatsubaki-shoutout to Arche Gundam confirmed(GN Beam saber, GN fang)
I just love how most of the IS have Gundam 00 reference(in terms of design and attack)
Any reference to the self-healing skill?

Hehe, actually that's a relatively good point there. Noticed quite a few "butterfly" sequences / scenes in recent anime. Must be the new "cool" thing these days.

Is Ichika already study the tactics of sneak attack and use the best direction of the position of the sun to glare the enemy eyes? I dont think so he's isn't brainy to study his opponent and not enough training just to swing his sword. His victory is just a fluke.

I shall greatly miss Chifuyu-nee. Too bad we didn't get to see her in action in a proper IS battle. And Tabane is such a meddling sister, but I can't help but like her. It's always the goofy, silly ones that you have to watch out for - or they hax your missiles/new goverment combat program just so they can show off their little sister's new toy.

Tabane is just hyperactive and haven't got any rules in her life(except keeping speed at the MAX) I've always loved these kinds of characters. They.Are.Simply SUPER CUUUUUUTE
His victory is just a fluke.
He is a very good pilot and fights til the very end as it's seen...

Lol, yet another cockblock, but honestly it was more than I expected from a harem anime (expected harem ending tbh lol). Oh well, at least enough initiative on the main character's part that I can chalk it up as a win, ala Daimou. Osananajimi +1

That said, can't help but feel for Charlotte. Hey, who can blame me? Hanazawa currently is my #1 favourite seiyuu; she has a habit of making me root for character (ie. OreImo, TLR, Kannagi, Asobi ni Ikuyo) even if it's against the childhood friend lol. XD

Yes its YOU childhood friend - source of BERZERKER RAGE since forever
Childhood Friend couple STATISTICS(spoilers abound though)

Houki no ha Ookii is what I'd like to say. Dajare intended.

Like the previous episode, this episode was cheesy as hell. "Epic" 6v1 doesn't really feel epic when it is so forced. Gospel has been running amok for 2 episodes and it hasn't ran out of energy while all of them are struggling? And I thought Houki's IS was supposed to be the best IS out there? =/

Charlotte and Laura arc is probably the epitome of IS this last arc just blows <_<
Homura: Die monster! You don't belong in this world!
Kyubey: It was not by my hand that I am once again given flesh. I was called here by humans who wish to pay me tribute.
Homura: Tribute? You steal girls' souls, and make them your slaves!
Kyubey: Perhaps the same could be said of all religions.
Homura: Your words are as empty as your soul! Lolis ill-needs a savior such as you!
Kyubey: What is a loli? A miserable little pile of moe! But enough talk...have at you!

Wow... that was mediocre. Could have been worse I guess.

Best part was Houki in her bikini.

-the white knight incident was suspected to be her doing to show off the power of the IS.
-She sought to get Ichika into the academy for Houki's sake (she knew Houki loved him and likely wanted to make up with Houki for seperating them which was what Houki resented her most for) by making it seem like he could control an IS and in an ironic twist, he COULD control an IS.
-Suspected to have caused the SG to go berserk to show off Houki and the AT's power. It was also a good way to show the compatibility of the Byakushiki and AkaTsubaki which she had intended to compliment each other

majority of it comes down to her wanting to really do something for her sister.

I don't understand the wife comment in the very end. Ichika as wife? And was that Laura or Houki saying it?

edit: Something like "You're not treating me properly with my being your wife!" by Laura, maybe?

Pretty good. Wouldn't most countries have been after her for a while anyway, just from being a genius?

Then again, they don't seem to try very hard. Probably because they've seen what she can do when playing around, and have no desire to see what she'll do if she actively tries to hurt them. Not before they're good and ready for a winning strike, anyway.
