Now who would have thought that Zero Two could be so responsible?

I laughed a bit when Futoshi and Zorome were looking at the fire. Guys will be guys

Honestly even with all the death flags there are just as many counter elements. Every time the picture book gets brought up Hiro always mentions that it seems so sad, I believe there could be implications that unlike the picture book Zero Two and Hiro will get the happy end that eluded the story characters.

Also the shot in the OP where the characters are running as silhouettes, they flash scenes from the first half of the show and the last one before the characters reach out their hands to Zero Two is the scene of happy 02 from the very first ep and could be after the end of the conflict with them fufilling their wish to see the flowers bloom, also 02 turns into sakura petals at the end.
Spoiler for Opening shot with the image:


also at the end when 02 dissapears they don't focus too much on Hiro's face and after a bit he clenches his fists and turns to face whatever the mystery franxx in the background is. there seems to be a lot suggesting 02 might be taken or something and Hiro and the squad will have to fight for the truth and to get the happy ending.

Also the shot with the mysterious klaxxosaur entity looks like she is the blue oni to 02's red even having a single horn instead of 2.
Spoiler for Blue Oni:

I also agree that the director emphasized he wanted to give the characters satisfying endings and 02 dying wouldn't be very satisfying unless the writing sharply changes in 8 episodes.

That looks like Dark Gundam behind her.

the same shot is at the end of the opening too and the franxx in the background has less stuff covering its legs than in the shot with the Klaxxosaur girl. not sure if anyone else noticed that.

Sakura. If they do make it through this and Hiro gives her a normal name it will probably be Sakura after all there's the scene where she asks about the buds and the one in episode 1 where shes wearing the normal uniform and smiling, also the new OP uses sakura petals a lot.

A new monster girl?

New love rival for 02?

I bet she's 01

Looking at her I think we can safely rule out the possibility of her being a love rival. That appearance spells trouble. Although would be interesting if she steals Hiro.

Good point! I really like this idea, Sakura would be a great name for her. Although.. if fans chose to refer to her as Sakura (or any other name, really) instead of Zero Two it'd be an annoying spoiler to deal with for those new to the show.

I keep wondering about the blue oni. It looks too young to be Z2's mother. What if she's the witch from the fairy tale, or the princess who lost her prince like in the story?

Please no, no more of that type of drama—I’ve had enough.

If she "steals" Hiro, it wouldn't be drama, it would be crisis. Why on earth would she be a honest contender if the first thing she does is kidnap the love interest? I don't think his stockholm sydrome is THAT bad?

Besides, we already know that the only thing Hiro ever thinks about is 02.

He has to deal with his eating disorder which will kill him faster than aging due to piloting. Losing his partner is now the least of his problems imo.

I don't think "honesty" has anything to do with this. The only thing 01 needs to do is to utilize the brainwashing/memory wiping technology that Papa has. But I bet that 02 is the one that gets taken and not Hiro. If I thought that the other side is wrong, the thing I would do is "free" my relative. Kidnapping 02 would also stop their offensive movement.

02 hasn't stopped changing. She's just filing those horns and claws down.

you know it is fat shame, what the problem?? you know my grandfather lived up to 84 and only died because of "bad hospital and he ended getting a really big problem while on that, otherwise he was living fine and he was like futoshi in body.

Honestly being "fat" is not that bad as long he know how to proper control himself and eat health food and do some exercise them is not really a deal, the problem of "fat" is about peoples just being lazy and eating "junk food" and not taking care of themself and also becoming morbid fat like above 150kg like peoples with 200kg or more, what is matter is "how much fat they are and how they become fat.

Why are people talking like Kokoro changing pairs is a recent thing? That's more than a month ago now.

to be honest the problem i saw in many peoples and myself is not she "choosing" the other over the fat but what she did, the fact which she break her promise or betrayed him was the issue, because she did it(don't come saying which she not did it because she did it, she confirmed and made clear which she betrayed him), if she had not promised him and just traded it could be fine, but she break a promise and not even tried to "apologize for it, that is the big issue.
