THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Herp Derp, I already found out I'm not the reason the world will get destroyed but maybe I should die anyways, derp.

But seriously, she isn't going to cause the end of the world just for staying alive, they know this now. They are just getting punished by powerful people if they let her stay alive. They are fully capable of fighting back. That coupled with the fact that they already stated that it doesn't matter if she dies, they will still reset the population. Still, she thinks she should be killed. Are we all complete morons who lack the ability to listen 5000 years in the future?

"It appears we may have picked the wrong people to negotiate with."

Was anyone else waiting for everyone in the room to go "NO SH*T" in unison?

LOL yeah I was thinking the same thing. Like did they really think they would be able to negotiate with Peacemakers? xD

Wait why would Pacifica not remember what happened during the time she had amnesia? That doesn't even make sense. It makes it feel like those 2 or 3 episodes with that Furret guy were basically filler.

R.I.P hot blond peacemaker, your cleavage shall be missed :<.

But yeah, the peacemakers seem kinda screwed now, there's no way just the two of them will be much of a threat to Shannon and his crew. I wonder what their next plan of action will be, to get reinforcements perhaps?

Yes.

They finally killed the bitch Steryn that started it. Also why can't Pacifica remember her amnesia days? Makes the whole memory loss a true waste.

Also I've finally decided I hate Pacifica...after all that has happened, she still pulls out the maybe I should die card after now seeing that her dying would change NOTHING!!! The Peacemakers would still have attacked even if she had died when she was a baby!!!

My god lady you were a spoiled brat when the show started and you have literally learned NOTHING since then!!

I applauded the themes of this anime but the more it goes on the more shallow they feel. Luke for example was a character who was defined by his by the book attitude, he did what a soldier did because he was just that. But then without any character development he lets Chris escape with Pacifica. We can extract it's because the other lady was kicked off and he was put on as the Royal Forces commander, allowing him to see the injustice, but it was entirely off screen and hardly significant(if i'm even recalling this right). I don't even understand why he was in the story to begin with. Leopold is a character I've written a lot about in these threads, from the beginning the theme of finding your own justice was written all over him, that was his mission. But since then we get glimpses of it, but hardly anything. Great in execution, poor in depth. Teased but never given what Scrapped Princess constantly hints at.

The writing is lazy as hell, Senes and her dragons teleported on top of Steyr, killed her in one attack, and Socom and Cin didn't even see it or help at all or... And she just happened to have these never before mentioned dragon mechs that have only come up because if they didn't Shannon couldn't have won...
Chris helped because he had a guardian gene in him, that's it. He says it's because he wants to be a nice guy out of free will, but that's such a stupid reason. Genes control everyone in this show.
And Pacifica conveniently survived, because of Raquels guardian genes, but then lost her memories for no reason, and then conveniently got them back for no reason, forgetting her memories of Pamela, no explanation whatsoever. Just ridiculous.

I'll never go back on the fact that the cast is well written in their interactions, aside from Shannon and baby Cin, but man this is some lazy plot writing and shallow theme exploration.

Steyrs death was underwhelming and unsatisfying.


Then the reuinion with her siblings after all that trouble and the first thing Pacifica greets is the damn horse?

Was that supposed to be funny?

And then that "If I weren't there" crap again, although it doesn't change shit anymore.
Zero characterdevelopment until the very last episode, huh? Then go ahead and just kill her already, ffs.
