I know this sounds really stupid, but is he? Given the impression of the first episode, it was a definite yes. But after seeing the second, I don't know. The part when Violet asked Claudia to send the letter for her to the Major, he agreed but then again he could have just said that for her sake as to not let her know he's dead, but the thing the really makes me think he isn't dead is the ending of Episode 2. He and Cattleya are talking and she asks about the Major. Claudia tells her "he's not coming again." The wording here makes me think that he's not dead, just that die to some circumstances he can't return. Then again could just be a translation error.


Thoughts?



Edit: Spoilers. Obviously

My friend and I had this argument, she thought that Gilbert is really dead but I was sooo sure that he was alive and that the end of the episode is just word play. "He isn't coming again/back" doesn't always mean he is dead, maybe he was injured badly or switched sides and batrayed them. So I went and typed is he really dead and the answer did pop up so if you really want to know go to the wikia.

I'm really happy I read this thread. I couldn't see where the show would go if Gilbert was dead. I freaking adore this show so far. Maybe when he returns we can finally see her find out what love means deep in her heart. Also, maybe this will turn into a bit of a romance 😜

Same, when I asked my friend if Gilbert is really dead and she said yes, my enthusiasm dropped and decided to search for an answer. Can't wait to see more of this show

They've somewhat tried to show an ambiguous message, but I guess it all depends on the viewer.

You mean the eyes part? It was already shown in the anime (or the CM, can't remember which), although only for a few seconds for foreshadowing purposes.

I thought about this too
I know that it’s most likely that is he but I’d like to believe he isn’t and that hes being held captive by the enemy and that violet will reunite with Gilbert by finding him
Sure it’s mostly likely that he is dead but it’s a nice thought isn’t?

Basically if he was actually dead the series ends by episode 0. Since there is no value otherwise, Gilbert has to be alive to keep the game going. Gilbert is the value holder here, not Violet.

Hey can you change your title to make it not so spoiler-rific for those who have not seen this? Not that I care, but I know plenty of others will. Considering I saw this in the side, trending threads. you know?

It's a question, not "GILBERT IS NOT DEAD PERIOD", which is obvious to more or less experienced viewer either way.

I read almost all the comment and I became confuse, is he dead or not? if he isn't do you think we will see him in this series, or is there going to be a sequel season or so?

If he isn't the score for this anime will drop. Currently, as of episode 9, I have it as a 10. Depending on execution, if Gilbert is alive it will either drop to a 9, 8, or even 7. The problem is his character's death is one of the best I have ever seen, and Violet's dealing with grief is what makes this show so goddamn good. It would be a cheap move if he is alive, that seriously deteriorates the quality of the story.
I am worried, as there have been signs that he is alive. Most worrying is that episode 9 would have been a perfect ending, but there are 5 more.

When they said that his body hasn't been found that meant to me that obviously he was going to come back. Specially in anime,"no body" is as good as "he's alive." After the last episode though, I'm not sure. He suffered a lot of damage. But my friend and I were discussing it and he said maybe the major has been taken as a war prisoner and he could be used by an anti peace group to increase tension.

Who were the other two characters before her shot with the axe? It's already 9 episodes in and haven't seen them. I suppose the red haired guy is probably the playwright but we never saw Violet in those clothes so that stirs some confusion. The second girl I have no clue on though...or maybe I'm just blind.

Also, after rewatching the trailers, it seems like the show may branch into a full on action series towards the end. If that's the case, I'm certain the visuals will be amazing but I have mixed feelings on that since the show has mainly focused so heavily on being a slice of life.

I think it's pretty obvious he isn't dead. His body wasn't found and I've seen enough anime and series to know that's the opposite of a death flag

People are saying that Kyoani might change it by I really doubt they will. It's not their style to change something so massive. I guess we'll find out soon.
