Security does seem to suck. For having some future tech like space battleships you'd think they'd have something that can detect a rocket launcher!

It's cool to see how clearly the characters' thought processes are. Reinhard consults his various advisors (Annerose, Kircheis, Oberstein) on the position of Sieg relative to him. Kircheis draws on memories to redetermine how certain his loyalty should be. Reuenthal judges how much a No. 2 means to him, perhaps how much ambition he'll allow himself.

Yeah really. I think the launcher was hidden in Prince's gut though. Maybe the walls of flesh threw off sensor, or it was inside a lead box inside the body. Creepy way to assassinate.

God damn preview, wish I didn't see that. I will now try and avoid previews forever. Anyway, pretty boring episode. I'm not the biggest fan of flashbacks.

Even though I've already been spoiled. :/

5/5 for this episode. I really enjoyed and it wasn't that heavy on flashbacks (which I was really needing).

This was a great episode.
It showed us how beautiful Reinhard and Kircheis' friendship is and how it remains strong, even though we can clearly see how their friendship seems to be deteriorating, they still trust each other and they will trust each for ever.
Reinhard: Even if the whole universe were my enemy, Kircheis would still be my friend.
Kircheis: Sooner or later, Reinhard-sama will understand.
Those 2 phrases were so powerful and so so beautiful.

That cliffhanger made me want to hut someone badly though.

Well, I'm never watching previews for this series again.

I love the irony and hypocrisy of Oberstein warning against Reinhard having a second-in-command, and then walking and standing by Reinhard's side.

This series should have s disclaimer for all first-time watchers of the show: Never watch episode previews.

I am seriously SO GLAD I never watch next-episode previews.

I love how we see Reinhard's and Kircheis' relationship begin to develop a bit more here -- friends do have misunderstandings, and that brings them even closer once they've reconciled their differences. Though I am a bit upset that Reinhard didn't fully explain to Kirchies what had happened with Oberstein and the whole nuclear escapade.

The character development in this series blows me away, and we finally have our first cliff-hanger. Looks as if I'm not getting any sleep! Onto episode 26!
Know an AMAZINGGG anime with a strong male lead?!?!11one//?!

NoSrsly, bby. I'll love you forever. But no romance. I mean, romance is fine between you and I, but I don't want to watch that crap, okay? Okay.

I hope that the attack kills Oberstein instead instead of Reinhard because Oberstein is a gigantic dick.

This is a bit sad, Reinhard and Kircheis' personal friend relationship may have to change.

ahh...that's why that guy took Braunschweig to the infirmary, good cliffhanger.

No one in the room is packing heat so Reinhard won't be able to survive this situation. His life flashed before our eyes in this episode.

At least we got to hear him fall on a piano once more.

Even if I don't watch the preview, I get spoiled by the people in the episode discussion. >>

Reinhard shouldn't trust Oberstein. He's too cunning! Kircheis will restore his friendship with Reinhard, I'm sure. Otherwise I'd enjoy the Empire's side less than I should. Or I can watch Oberstein overthrow Reinhard. Who knows. I think Kircheis proves to be a good restraint for Reinhard to keep him on his path and to stay true to his values. He needs to stay.

And here I was, wondering why he was opening the Prince... I thought he was going to present Reinhard with his heart or something. I love how nobody reacted to him opening the coffin and his body. If only Kircheis had his gun?

I was so bothered by how much the animation changed, especially Kircheis' eyes. Is it just because it was a lazy flashback episode with hardly any new animation?

That meeting between Kircheis and Lohengramm was really really intense.
I sense that many things from this point forward will not bode well.

That ending though, it was so sudden. GAhhhh.

I never watch previews, spoilers are a big reason why.

However I also don't go to the current episode discussion thread, since even if its not filled with spoilers, you fools discuss the spoilers in an episode preview. Because of that I always have to watch ahead before reading previous discussion threads.

I knew something was up when Ansbach had Braunsweig taken to the infirmary. I was thinking though that he gave him a sedative instead of poison to keep him alive not a rocket launcher hidden in his body.
I don't particularly like Lohengramm so hopefully he's dead or incapacitated for awhile.

Oh, cliffhanger ending. Almost makes up for the large amount of unnecessary flashbacks in this episode. Seriously though, did we really need to see an uncut version of the nuke incident again?

Best episode preview ever by the way. Would've been pissed expect I've already been spoiled on it.

lol wut rocket launcher hidden in the stomach
hardcore lmao

this episode was meh. Just a bunch of recaps disguised as self reflection by Reinhard/Siegfried. I think Siegfried is making a terrible miscalculation that someday Reinhard will understand.

I don't like that the majority of this episode was flashbacks. Its not good when a series wastes your time like that, I could understand if it were more meaningful to the moment or something, but most of this happened only a few episodes and it didn't really add to the experience.
They seem to have adjusted the animation in this episode. Reindhard and Kircheis's faces looked better. Their eyes were more detailed which is good, because Kircheis's fake doll-looking eyes used to annoy me.
That was some crazy shit at the end with that attempt at assassination. I wonder how he's gonna dodge that?

The art is super clean this time and looks better than anything else in the show so far.
Oberstein doesn't like favoritism of any kind.
Kirchies and Reinhard argue about Reinhard's choice to not intercept the nuke on that planet. I'm guessing that they will have a falling out.
Oberstein keeps trying to convince Reinhard to stop favoring Kirchies, I think he should shut up since kirchies has proven himself.
Hmm there are so many flashbacks in this episode.
Oh shit! Ansbach walked into the room so casually with a hidden rocket launcher in Brawnscheig's dead body and he's aimed it at Reinhard. I thought Ansbach stopped caring about Brawnschieg.
Surprising cliffhanger.

Quote of the episode: "Even if the whole universe were my enemy Kircheis would still be my friend."


THAT is how you do a calm before the storm episode, im realizing more and more how this anime has done so many things that other shows have done and for the most part it is doing them better, hats off to LoGH

edit: just watched the preview for next episode.... i cant....

Despite the heavy use of flashbacks, this episode did well to emphasize how Kircheis has always been the voice of reason in Reinhard's life and has guided him with sound counsel. I hope the distance between them is a temporary set back as I have really enjoyed their dynamic thus far.

Although there was a lot of reused footage as usual episodes without battles are far more interesting. The surprising wear on the closet friendship in the series is real tension. Reinhard's rather cynical assessment of his sister's words creates more.

Decent episode, the first ten minutes was very interesting, but that flashback was a bore though, and that cliffhanger was executed in a lame way. 3/5

What an episode. You can't expect things to run smooth all the time. Relationship between people change pretty fast if is stimulated by unexpected event. Hope Reinhard and Kircheis won't go to any fight.

Nice metaphor on this one:

Obersteins's principle is very interesting. He dislike unfairness and his honesty knows no limit, always state what's on his mind, even if it's about insulting his superior lol. He seems to be a crafty fox as well, always knows what's going on, and have plan ahead, given the right situation he'll execute it with no delay. The assasination makes me laugh a bit, must be because of the rushed and weird execution. But still a nice episode.

I hope that Reinhard step on his pride and tell him the truth but knowing
Reinhard he won't do it.

I wonder what kept Reinhard from telling Kircheis that he was tricked by Oberstein about the Westerland nuke? Was it his pride? Maybe something simpler, maybe since he was parted from his dear friend for so long he couldn't open up to him about being manipulated by the person who replaced Kircheis by his side.
