Kurz got his little moment in this eps, but that didn't really help him shine, unfortunately.
Oh and Tessa got herself a really ugly beard of blood

Kurz's fight scene was quite nicely done I thought, even if it was resolved by a Deus Ex Machina arrival of scantily clad Mao.

I was thinking, "lol what? Tessa is actually Duke Nukem?!"

Anyway, pretty cool episode. Cant wait to see how Sousuke finally kills Gauron for good this time.

Fantastic episode, Tessa was totally awesome in this one (especially with her face covered in blood XD).

Also lol @ Kurz being disappointed at not having a camera :P

This arc has been fantastic! When someone of the crew said "we've misjudged him" it became clear the true nature of Gauron. Basically he has a personality similar to The Joker, he doesn't reason, doesn't have motives and doesn't have a materialistic thought, he is just having fun!

Okay, final fight here we go!

You know what this episode includes? Mecha fights in a submarine, now that isn't really common.

Haha, I imagined Tessa hearing him saying that. Lol.

But the best was this:

To anyone who watched the dub, remember Pearl Harbor! xD

And Tessa was awesome in this episode!

A lot of good visuals in this episode; Guen's bloody death, Tessa sliding across the room, her head snapping up, revealing blood pouring out her nose (I just wish the nosebleed was drawn better; it looked more like a decal on her face), and her whole body being thrown into the air when the submarine surfaced. I just wish it has been this creative the whole series.

I also have to say that by putting the effort into building up to it, revealing Gauron as a crazy villain who doesn't care if he dies if it's an an amusing-enough way actually works. Getting cliches right is something not many things manage.

Tessa is such a badass!

I hope Souske kills Gourren so next season we can have a better antagonist.

Did anyone get why the crew was angry when the guy with the sunglasses was holding Tessa and getting ready to dump a bucket on his head?

lol gauron isint afraid cause the plot keeps bringing him back to life no matter what. dam that guen guy sure as resilient taking a needle to the neck and gut and keep on moving. I love kurz is a pervert even at this moment asking for a camrea. we also see the effects of using the power. Massive noise bleed.LMAO was it necessary for someone to get shot on the ass. I couldint stop laughing it was so random.

Okay first: Holy fuck Mao, that outfit! Weber you lucky bastard! Sliced thumb and leg's a small price to pay to see that, camera or not! XD Ahem...Teletha was pretty freaky during the control takeback, especially with the bloody face. Ditto Kaname using her whispered powers. Well we got Sousuke vs Gauron round 4, well 3 on screen, for the finale. Let's see if Sousuke can finally kill the bastard! XD

Even in that horrible position Kurz was thinking about taking pervy pics of Melissa :D
For a second I thought Tessa died when sliding into the wall with the back of her head.

Surely if Gauron wanted he could just rip open the top of the submarine and screw everyone over in the submarine.
- Gonna be a hell of a fight.
