I was legitimately frustrated when everyone was alive after that fight. Tanya's bullet hole in the shoulder was completely ignored after that scene.

I think you missed several points here. First, that the shoulder wound was mostly healed showed how much time had passed - at least several weeks - the other soldiers were also mostly recovered though they took far more extensive damage.

Second, and more important, Being-X is testing Tanya's empathy. He wanted to see how she would react to almost losing her men and then seeing them okay. Would she develop compassion? A respect for human life? Morals? That was what the scene outside of Church was about. Tanya failed - she might have some empathy for HER people, but none for humanity. So, Being-X is like, okay back into the war for you, seems like you are going to have to lose some people close to you to change.

So while this scene is animation only, it actually is a good insight into Tanya's growth and lack of, and it sets up the next season well.

As whether they meant this, absolutely. Salaryman's lack of caring about his own death and his complete lack of empathy was what attracted Being-X to him at the first.

That is what I think most of the critics miss about this show. Whether it is WWI or WWII is irrelevant, this world was SOLELY created in order to test Tanya. She has been given the potential to turn it into heaven or hell, and she is insisting on the latter (the town scene best captured this - she was fine with killing civilians because they COULD become future enemies - then think about this episode, when she refused to prevent the same thing from happening when she could have).

If history has taught me anything, it's that the French fleet will be back with even more support, and they will destroy the Empire. And so starts World War II, and the destruction of the Empire.

I was really hoping that Tanya would destroy those French guys who were fleeing and prevent WWII, since he/she knows what is going to happen. Well too bad.
Death to the oppressive Empire!!

Great fight although I already figured Tanya would win again.

I kinda don't like how Being X just basically cheats lol.

I have to see what's going to happen next!

I have small reviews for almost ALL anime I've seen. Unlike any regular MAL page you've seen.

Ever wondering what I've watched and what I think about it? Check my List out below!

Pretty great show, maybe the best of the season. Unlike most people I was hooked from episode 1 and it never let me down. Just wish a second season could someday be made for it.

nice aerial fight, very tensely paced. Eye patch had this looming pressure, but better if he put more of a fight at close range. Tanya's shield pretty op for blocking the self detonation.
Time for Tanya to fight the structure, always sucks when close minded leaders waste effort & stop halfway.

A boy the buildup is pretty much laid, really do wonder how the next and last episode will go now! Really impressive episode in general again, really loving this development and can't wait to see the conclusion next!

That battle up front was intense. Too bad that other dude didn't last for another episode...

The ending was... wow, nice job on the buildup/suspense. Tanya freaking out over being ordered to stand down...

One episode left!

They aren't listening to poor Tanya, even though she's done so much to help them ;;

Heh I THOUGHT things were going a little too smoothly. But being X has to build her up in order to break her down enough.

I can't wait to see how this happens.

This aerial warfare was amazing, the best one that I have seen in anime. Great episode. Tanya already knew the WWII, so she know what is happening

Well shiet. I wonder if Being X is hoeing Tanya lololol

I agree that the battle was disappointing though :/ but apparently it's not in the manga, so I guess it's alright. Her consecutive shots at Sioux was pretty badass though, not gon lie. I also liked the touch where they zoomed in on the initials to emphasize he was being shot with his own daughter's gun :'(

All those gorgeous explosions in this episode were on par with Gurren Lagann's quality of destruction ♡ Despite Tanya and the battalion having some massive close calls, I'm very glad everyone survived.

I admired Tanya being concerned for the lives of her comrades to the point of saving one of them from imminent death by getting hit. I could've been okay if the Colonel fought Tanya fairly but directly breaking the treaty by using a forbidden weapon was just low not to mention Being X making him an explosive bullet sponge. I was so glad Viktoriya saved her at the last second.

When everyone was celebrating their victory, she realized that the war wasn't over after all but no one listened... Are they really that stupid, not seeing through the unusually eager surrender and turning their back on the person who let them amass all those victories in the first place? Poor Tanya.

I really hope they show the stupid looks on the faces of those old bastards the moment they realize the grave mistake they've made

This episode went from being so fucking savage and awesome with the fight between Tanya and that fucking Colonel to being so happy because nobody died in Tanya's battalion to fucking frustrating anxiety-causing moment because disobeyed an order and she feels like she's gonna be killed by a firing squad. What the fuck.

That's not going to happen! Without Tanya, their so-called victory will never happen. Fuck them!

P.S. Viktoriya blushing after seeing Grantz is alive. Hihihi. Cutesy.

I love how Tanya has evolved from Salaryman to what she is now.

This episode is so amazing! How could a show keep being amazing on each episodes?!

I mean seriously, in this episode you can feel a lot of things from Tanya! Her concern for Weiss, her concern to just live in peace, her concern to end the war once and for all and her rage. Like damn!

What the hell is the general staff thinking? Ceasefire is temporary and with the enemy navy gone, the said ceasefire will only be broken once those navy unload their remaining bombs and whatever to the imperial capital lol and it won't have any repercussions whatsoever because the whole world is against the empire it's obvious with the entente alliance secretly backing the republic. Also that aerial battle was badass.

Pretty cool episode, had to lol at the beach scene.
One Piece episode 914 & 915 were a mistake.

God the frustration! I could FEEL it from this side of the screen!

And thus the war continues...

Everything Tanya is building up to is falling apart and there literally seems to be no true victory for her

Tanya might be bloodthirsty, but the show does a pretty good job in justifying her actions. Ignoring any sort of resistance will eventually cause the Republic to rebuild its power. I'm curious how the series will handle this issue with only one episode left.

Well that fight turned out to be short. I was expecting that guy to be stronger since he got a power up from Being X. Welp last episode here we go

Well good-riddance, I hope we won't see him ever again!

She wants to totally end the Republic's war fighting capability by eliminating all it's remaining military strength ensuring an absolute and complete military victory for the Empire over the Republic but politics overtook her initiative. War will continue, more despair so more prayers to God or maybe to Being-X.
Nothing is an absolute reality, all is permitted.

I kind of wish this guy stood alive longer though I guess he was there just to remind tanya that being X is the one truly control of everything. Though I would've figured that being x would let those other soldiers die instead of live.

Aerial warfare was pleasant to watch, as well as both sides' magic used in it.

Grantz in alive!

Tanya noticed a strange analogy that what happened on the frontline in her current reality was similar to what happened during World War II after France was defeated. Too bad the warchiefs refuse to take any actions and get drunk by their latest success.

Poor tanya they use her like a rag doll, but won't even listen to reason.
