Subs for Ep 23 are already out!

Kuromukuro's storyboarders tweeted Ep 24 onwards is the final battle. So there's time for one more SOL episode before the final push.

They're really building up for the final battle. According to what Muetta said, they got like a massive fleet coming? Oh boy...I'm getting the Independence Day feel.

I got some laugh from the latest episode mainly with that play they did. Seems like Muetta is adapting with her new life a bit.

Muetta the teacher said Butter not Batter.

When you think about it Muetta has it worse compared to Ken. The present are with the descendants of his culture. Muetta has no cultural reference. Civilians and civilian life is something foreign to her.

In any case Yukina and company are helping her integrate.

Episode 23 was a good breather episode.

Given the recent string of action-packed episodes, and given that the remaining episodes will also likely be action-packed, now was a great time to slip in a breather episode and flesh out the full cast a little bit more. This episode also goes a long way to developing Muetta's character, and showing exactly what all of the protagonists will soon be fighting for.

ReddyRedWolf is right that this is even harder for Muetta than it was for Ken, as Ken's memories offer a closer frame of reference to modern Japan than Muetta's memories do. Still, I think that Ken was right to point out the similarities that him and Muetta share when it comes to both being alien to this world, as it shows that she is not alone in making this tough adjustment.

It's honestly kind of touching how Yukina has taken Muetta under her wing, and is doing all she can to help Muetta. Likewise, this was a good episode for Mika, Akagi, and Marina in how they reached out to help Muetta. This episode and the last has done a lot for Akagi's character.

As for Ken, I like how he is accepting that Muetta is not his Yukihime, yet he still accepts her. Ken has actually been handling things very well lately. Perhaps some of Yukina's sensibilities and tendencies have rubbed off on him some, and so Ken is starting to mellow out some and become increasingly accepting of the modern world.

Well, play-time was fun but I'm also glad it's over. Here's looking forward to the action-packed concluding arc of Kuromukuro!

Episode 23:
Having fun before a battle might be a good thing instead of being gloomy all the time. Still, I'm worried that there's not enough time to stop Efidolg's objective of conquering Earth!

Sasuga PA Works, still managed to slip SoL moments of making movie in this near-finale episode. I didn't flip my table as promised coz they at least still have the decency of not doing it in episode 22 after that big siege. Oh well, at least it's agood medium for Muetta's chara-development and Ouma. Other than that, there's nothing noteworthy in eps 23. I just hope that, at the end of the series, PAW does not succumb to tropes and kill our red-Piccolo in a blaze of glory just because he already felt some fullfilment. That would be totally obvious. Would be a lot more interesting if Zeru can survive the series and continue living on Earth like Piccolo or Martian-Manhunter .

Invasion averted... For the next 224 years that is. Earth better reverse engineer the technology and build up militarily for the next encounter. The Efidolg fleet seems to be a Berserker fleet that destroys any alien lifeform or civilization that can be a threat to their creators. Even then it doesn't mean they would be technologically on par as we've seen in 450 years the Efidolg has advanced.

Sebastian is alive! Somehow gaining a beard in such a short time.

Tom discarded his humanity to pilot Lion and kick ass. Please don't tell me he'll be around the cycle? Instead of a Samurai out time it is a potty mouth American.

Ken proposed to Yukina. Mom is against it as she doesn't want to be an early grandma. Sophie is against it as it is a death flag.

I'm guessing Rita died because of the cold and the stress of the implant.

Okay, I admit, I laughed out loud at "Yukina, you mustn't accept his proposal. It's a death flag."

The highlights of this episode for me were the convo between Ken and Yukina, the convo between the major and Sophie, and Sebastian's return. Good stuff. Very interested in seeing what the conclusion's going to be like...

Seriously, "no body, no death." Geez.

Mom and friend, GTFO. Let them have their love. This has to be the mecha series with one of the lowest good guy mortality rates ever.

Me to its even funnier because second anime this season to poke fun at death flags. Taboo Tattoo just recently did it.

Whats with that final while it was great its not really a final more of a we won the battle but the war is not over episode. Is there going to be a season 2 or something did this series do really well.

The sword to the back by the Demon was a great scene.

You're not alone there. I just loved how they pointed that out.

Wasn't expecting Sebastian to return, they never did find a body. After Mu Lu Flaga, I find this pretty easy to swallow.

However the escape system used by GAUS-3 shows how reliable it is. We just didn't see him eject.

Nope. Not moving with eyes open usually means dead.
