THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Decent episode. Chapter 24 (Light and Dark)

Teito and Hakuren have entered the Bridge of Tribulation... each dealing with their darkest situation.

Hakuren seems to had an issue with his father (mostly with his father giving orders to Hakuren rather than making him feel like a son). Howver there seemed to be a side to him that wanted his father to meet his demise. But in the end, it seems that Hakuren remembered Teito's words, which made him realize that if he abandoned his father, he would be the same as him. Seeing this, he was able to face the darkness within him, and rose above it.

Teito had some issues and demons of his own to deal with. His hate for Ayanami and his vengence clouded his head, causing him to lose focus of the goal (And of course the constant taunting didn't help out either). Though at the end... it seems the constant thing that drove us all crazy, was the thing that helped him the most... his memories (His promise to Mikage and talk with Hakuren). =P

It seems that the Imperial Army is making their move: Kuroyuri is still bent on revenge for Haruse, and Ayanami seems to have found what he's been looking for.

Looking foward to the next episode. =)

The opponents for the exam were "created" too real that the examinees believed them. Even for the fake Ayanami looks real.

It seems like Wyda took care of his darkness easily.

Hakuren saved "his father" because of what Teito said. Young Hakuren's so cute!

Teito finally took care of his darkness.

It seems like the real Ayanami came for him.

After the exam, this Kuroyuri/Army thingy should be the climax of the season. (two more eps.)

idk why this last part of the exam sort of reminded me of harry potter =_=
only that we have bishops and ghosts and a lot of hot blonde guys ;D
...with the pace they're going now, do you think they'll be able to end this by the time teito's supposed to go to seele? or will there be a different ending? this was a bit painful to watch though...for some reason :X

can't wait for HQ raws ^^ the streaming ones made my head hurt =_=

Not a bad episode, but Volde- I mean, Ayanami whisking off Harry...I mean Teito right at the end of the task...I mean test was a little random, and I'm quite surprised that Teito didn't realize it at all. I guess we've just never seen Ayanami use his power when so close to his victim, though.

I like this, things are shaping up to be really promising now... with only 2 episodes left. Ah well, lets see how it ends.

If only Cedri- I mean, Hakuren was with Teito then we would have been all set.

Rather predictable, but I still liked it a lot.

I don't want it to be 2 episodes until complete... is it too late for them to add 25 more? XP

I actually thought that Teito might have actually lost. I understand his guilt about Mikage's death but its still a little annoying when he gets absorbed in it. He has Hakuren. He should never forget the things he's lost but he also can't neglect the things he has too.

too much Harry Potter vibe in it....not that it was too bad...it was just... a bit predictable and "as expected"....

2 episodes left. Clearly, they are rooting for second season....

The episode was a bit slow for me but I suppose it was an okay episode. I'm sort of looking forward to the ending of the series to see how they choose to end it. I'll pick up the manga in the future but right now, I don't feel like adding on another ongoing series.

It seems I’m not the only one to think that it had a Harry Potter vibe to it. Ayanami may be evil but I really like him.
I kind of figured that after it was all done Frau would want to go and see him.
I’m so curious as to who Ayanami really is. I have been trying to think who he could actually be but can’t think of anyone. Guess I’ll have to wait. I can’t believe there is only two more episodes.
what is a person with SAD to do..

If you read the manga... you'll know (the pace of the manga is faster anyways).=)

I had the deja vu feeling when watching the first ep (kick me but all the uniforms... Code Geass XD) but I like it though the eps been slowing down quite a bit. Ah well, I'll just continue reading the manga. And for who are wondering: I'm guessing they won't make up a random ending for this. I think they're gonna continue with a next season the only question is when. >.<

So I'm guessing the Ayanami at the end was the real one. It was a bit surprising to see the army invade the church, but I suppose it was bound to happen one day. Only two more episodes left, I wonder what they'll be like. I might as well continue reading the manga, but it's so... so confusing. ;_;

Teito vs Ayanami, cant wait. Teito's almost gotta get the eye back somehow, otherwise I cant see him standing any chance against Ayanami.

This was a good episode, good development on their test as well, as they were all able to resolve their psychological enemies, which made all the more better for them. So the Imperial army has invaded, wondering how they will make the ending fit in as well, as there are only two episodes left, I wish they would do a season two, I feel as though not enough has happened for it to end so quick!

In a pleasant surprise I actually rather liked this episode. Even the reappearance of Mikage didn't bother me much (although Teito crying out for him did.) Teito and Hakuren's tests on the bridge were both quite interesting and didn't disappoint. I knew both would pass and that there wasn't the slightest chance Hakuren would let his dad get killed, but at least with Teito I wasn't quite sure how he was going to pull out a victory. Kind of odd but still cool to see Teito in Ayanami's uniform and the child Hakuren crying with only half his face visible was an awesome visual.

If I was disappointed by anything the initial clash between Teito and Ayanami started out quite good and got me excited. Of course, the end of the episode made up for it and I love that song Ayanami made his entrance to. I really want the OST but it doesn't get released until November for some reason. :(

Hopefully the last couple of episodes will be at least as good.

Again a case of the standard predictable twaddle I have grown used to over the course of this series.
However there was a treat in store for me, oh yes, Hayami Shou (Ayanami) gets more lines than I can count on my fingers in this episode. So gar for him it's scary, and obviously the only reason I still put myself in front of this eye cancer.
An looks like more from Ayanami next week, can't wait to HEAR it! ;)

What a bitchin' episode. I liked hearing Jun-san do Ayase's voice on chibi Hakuren <3

Seeing Teito stabbed like that brought back some bad memories from Code Geass =A= Uwah...

And lovely :/ The Imperial Army has invaded them now. And that's quite possibly the real Ayanami at the end. This anime is definitely ending with a bang one way or another. There better be a second season being planned. I NEED more 07-Ghost. It's too addicting.

Glad that hakuren remember what teito said to him about have a warm family.
I like that part when talk to little self. Kind of remind me of Ulrike from Kyou kara maou talk to kid self of her.
Wait how this episode have Harry Potter vibe to it? Sorry not fans of the book or movie.

Next Episode is must need to watch. I wonder Teito will show his new power that beging with in his self.

Have to agreed with you about the bridge part of test was interesting, even on the brother part ( wait what his name again? ) was new to me.
Yeah, If I was in Teito's place i'm not sure how to past that test.
lol more like Mikhail was in that uniform.

Same here wait how do know its going to be released in November? I was try to find out info when the OSt is out.

I watched this episode right after watching episodes 23 and 24 of "Shin Mazinger" back-to-back... gawd - talk about going from totally Gar to pathetically flaccid... The directing in this episode was horrid. Even though everything was totally predicatable, they could have tried to do something, anything, to bring a bit of energy to the procedings.

Now now, I kinda felt really weird about the first Ayanami. And indeed it turned out to be Mikhael? So that's the part of him that can't forgive himself for being the reason of his friend's death eh? Makes sense.

What doesn't make sense is, the door opens, Frau's shocked face, and Teito is NOWHERE to be found.

And now, that's absolutely the real Ayanami waiting there, I bet Teito had enough of that guy so far.

Also Hakuren scene was really cute, chibi Hakuren is like so cute too ;______;!
Ouida and Liam are adorable as well.

The rest of the examinees are pathetic. -.-
