Ok, the episode didn't disappoint, although I really expected Twelve to die with Lisa. The kiss that didn't happen is another thing I expected :(

The OST indeed ruled as well.

This episode was step in the right direction.Five's plan actually made sense this time around.

Good thing for 9 that the polices officers tokk aming leasons from the stromtroopers.

So Five was the only one to have survived that experiment, while Nine and Twelve managed to escape. And also, Aoki tells Shibazaki and Hamura that the mastermind behind "Athena Project" was Dr. Shunzo Mamiya, the politician who was the reason behind Shibazaki's demotion. Woah.

It's so hard for Twelve (I praise him for being calm towards Lisa while trying to remove the bomb) to choose between saving Lisa's life or not betraying Nine.

As expected, he chose to tell Five about the prototype's location.

I love this part:

Poor Nine was betrayed by Twelve.

The ferris wheel scene is probably my favorite scene in the show, it was so beautiful. I was sort of expecting Lisa and Twelve to die together, though.

Five is the worst.

That episode would have been so much better if I actually cared about the characters.

Boom! My feelings exactly.

That Ferris wheel scene was really beautiful and sad and I loved that inserted ost which is one of my favorites from the anime soundtrack. I almost cried watching it and seeing how twelve really cares for Lisa was sad, too.

I'd rather have Twelve not betray Nine, but seems like there's still a hope for all of them.

This episode was excellent. 5/5

The moment it was realized they stole an ATOMIC bomb completely changed my view of the MCs. Capture that punk, yo!!!

Is Five dead?

One of the better episodes.
Twelve and Lisa are still alive after he told Five where the atomic bomb was.

After a tedious and drawn-out second act things are finally heating up in act 3. I was hovering around a 6 but if this can keep it up in the last two episodes I might be wavered to a 7.

The mood in the ferris wheel cabin felt so palpable, so many unsaid things. The night-time scenes are as ever evocative and sumptuously drawn, can't take that away from this show.

Dammit, Twelve. You should've just let that useless, annoying person go boom.

I'm sure the anime would be better off without her, after all, what has she ever done other than put those guys in trouble.

That ferriswheel scene with 12 trying to save Lisa was romantic. Especially the part where he tells Lisa not to apologize anymore. I knew she would ask him to run away.

The plots still a bit confusing to me at this point. Why the fuck do they have an atomic bomb?

Whoa, the ferris wheel scene...with the OST playing at the back...was intense, yet incredibly beautiful.We get to see more of the characters thoughts and conflicts in this episode, definitely. Satisfying episode indeed.

Now that was a good episode, tense and great OST usage in the background. Nice visuals too. I like how even though 12 gave up the bomb location, 9 was still able to predict he would and get it back in time. I want 5 to lose. All three of them (5, 9, and 12) must be going to die soon though because of whatever the side effects of the drug were.

Shibazaki and Homura learning about Athena was also an interesting scene, though hopefully they don't both die like the old guy implied would happen if they learned about it.

i think lisa represents the lives of the 'dumb' people around them and how 9 and 12 have neglected nurturing them by not leaving their traumatic past behind and instead focusing on it

Lisa is a useless bimbo, 12 is a fucking traitor and 5 is a psycho bitch - I hope 9 completes his plan and the cops expose the truth.

I'm especially disappointed with 9; so they captured Lisa and used her to set up a trap, what are they gonna do if no one turns up, execute her? If they do that they'll be harming themselves in the process - pretty stupid move for someone who's supposed to be a genius.

Damn it Twelve....I can't blame you for this since it's Lisa that got caught but still.....

And finally the pieces of the backstory are in place and Shibazaki's story comes full circle. I should have saw that coming, but still that was a good twist.

This was a wonderful episode.
It really must suck to be Twelve right now,but what could he do? I really hope Nine escapes the police.

I liked 9 and Risa's scene on the Ferris wheel, and the old guy's confession. Well done. Viewed in vacuum, I'd even say this episode was good all around. I don't like that there were no consequences for 12's actions, though the following episodes may deliver on that yet.

I also don't see what the overall statement of this show could be. "Don't experiment on children"? Or "science is bad"?

Why did 12 not put Five on speaker and continue dismantling the bomb? Even if it would have been impossible to finish it before it went off, it felt a bit odd that he just dropped what he was doing as soon as the phone rang. It would have been cool if he had kept working with gritted teeth and if he had only stopped working when Five said something that really got under his skin. I guess he is the more hot blooded of the duo, so maybe this way was more natural for him to act, but still, it could have been cool.

This was the masterpiece episode of the show so far. It was brilliantly directed, the music, editing, camera angles, tension and emotion, just perfection.

I do have a question though... why wouldn't Twelve just lie about the location of the bomb? They believe him and stopped the detonation timer. Buy yourself some time and just make something up! By the time they realize you duped them, you might be able to disarm the bombs.

So, Twelve abandoned and sold out his friend whom he had been with for the past years for a girl he knows little about and they met like few weeks ago.

Five is wrong D: Nine won't be mad at Twelve. He knows it's her fault anyways for being so conniving >->

Man, this anime is awesome in a lot of ways but its biggest downfall is that its only 11 episodes. It really needed a few more to flesh out the relationships, especially the one between twelve and Lisa, and backstories, particularly those that surround the Athena program.
