THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Even counting a couple of mistakes, the crew at Iserlohn did pretty good holding up so far. I see this is why they were saving Merkatz instead of killing him off. He proved quite useful in keeping things together.

...even a saint needs a soldier to do the dirty work.

When I started this ep I thought "does not look good for the allies" now I am thinking that it's about tied between the two. But now that the Imperials know that Yang is not there they have an even bigger advantage.

Love the Episode. Iserlohn is holding the ground until yang come back, and is so nice to see Merkatz leading the fleet

Also, is amazing to see a battle between two things of that size.

Impressive battle scenes... I see why everyone says the second season improves the series. It already had good characters, now the battle scenes are great and smart. So, this is pretty cool.

Haha, even without Yang, Iserlohn has enough talent to defend it. Merkatz and the Rosenritter being two shining examples.

Seeing both fortresses firing their main guns was just too awesome for words.

I still don't understand why the are using battle axe's just doesn't make any sense to me.

Good battle, Merkatz is definitely a genius and i am glad that he is now on Yang's team(He needed a few more intelligent commanders).

That was pretty cool. I thought the Alliance was screwed but they managed to fix their mistakes.

I loved Yang talking about how the Empire's dependence on Reinhard means they'll be a mess if he dies. Kind of made think of how in the Twelve Kingdoms the kings are immortal just to solve that problem.

"Making use of Geiersberg Fortress's huge mass..."
"They sealing up our own main guns and strengthened their own armor !"

Ok that part was a bit confusing. What does the Geiersberg Fortress have to do with the "main guns" being sealed, didn't they just put them in the back of the fortress to shoot the Empire's fleet

And how did the Geirsberg armor get stronger suddenly ?

And what's up with the "gravity" explanation, it didn't make sense to me :/

I cannot remember most of these episodes, but I'm pretty sure that as far as gravity and Geiersberg's armor is involved, due to Iserlohn's huge mass and gravitational pull, it pulls Geiersberg's liquid armor towards Iserlohn, thus making it stronger.

wha..wait thats what I said! where's my post where I said that!
yea it was something like that, gravity makes the liquid defense thicker and stronger- I think they explained it in the episode
"...our faces marked by toil, by deceptions, by success, by love; our weary eyes looking still, looking always, looking anxiously for something out of life, that while it is expected is already gone – has passed unseen, in a sigh, in a flash – together with the youth, with the strength, with the romance of illusions.” - Joseph Conrad ('Youth')

I hope Reinhard goes to Geirsberg himself and just beats up that commander for incompetence.

Epic battle! All these supporting characters like Cazellnu, Muller and Kempf are finally get a chance to shine. Too bad for them, the unprecedented scale has thrown off their already meager performances.

Was that the first time they actually used the z-axis? I believe they only fought in two dimensions before.

That was great. The first season space battles had been a bit disappointing after the prequels but now they're starting to be of the same standard. Also with the use of music. Beethoven FTW.

So far, the two people who have done the most to save the Alliance at Iserlohn have been Schenkopp and Merkatz. Now what do those two have in common...?

....They are both originally from the Empire? To be fair to the Alliance, the Empire had a shit load of incompetent bastards when Merkatz was there.

Speaking of Merkatz, it's great to see what he can do when surrounded by people who KNOW how to let him do his job. He was fantastic here.

Man, this season has been fantastic.

Yang is reaching his limit of tolerance, I only wish that he could join with Reinhardt and abolish the mockery of "democracy" that the Free Alliance supposedly stands for. If Kircheis was alive that would likely have been a probable outcome, since Kircheis greatly respected and held of Yang, and would smooth the transition of alliance between the two mammoths Reinhardt and Yang. This is one of the primary reasons Kircheis had to die, to render the otherwise sensible alliance between the two nearly impossible.


This is what i said after watching episode 31. Interesting for Yang to say here in Ep 33-

"And when I received news of his Death, I felt as if an old friend had died. It might be called the hypocrisy of fighting opponents, but if he were here he might have become a bridge for the sake of coexistence of the Alliance and the Empire".

Very good episode, action packed with great usage of strategies and it was refreshing to see the alliance forces held on their own without the help of Wenli.

DAT fortress vs fortress stuff was GOAT.

That was a marked improvement over the samey and poorly thought-out battle sequences from the first 26 episodes. We're having some proper space action now. No shallow caricature commanders to be found!

And even a cool sci-fi idea. Using a constant like gravity to nix the super-tech defense barrier is a great idea and it's amusing how the mobile fortress' true purpose isn't as a giant flying gun but just to neutralize the enemy's defense and best offense while the regular warships follow up on the vulnerability.

Yang doesn't go far enough in identifying the weakness inherent in Reinhard's regime. True, there's reason to doubt whomever succeeds Reinhard, but there's also reason to doubt Reinhard, no matter his personal qualities. Didn't we have a discussion just last episode of how Rudolf became a dictator out of a desire to serve others but became a monster? Do I need to quote "power corrupts; absolute power corrupts absolutely"?

Very old comment, I'm aware. The reason is because (if you've seen the OVA) using a gun on those armored suits are ineffective. Remember that "guns" now are all lasers/blasters and since both the Alliance and Empire have been at war for over 150 years we can assume that combat has grown substantially, but counters for those have grown just as easily.

The good ol' steel axe probably is the only thing that hasn't changed.

Wasn't expecting to see a bit of discomfort between Kempt and Muller...I guess that's what happens when two egos clash.

I'm glad Merkatz's putting in work for the team.

It's about time there was an actually interesting space battle, and between two death stars no less. It's also nice to see other competent commanders on both sides instead of one being overly dumb as was the case in the first season.

Magneficient, epic fight between the 2 fortress. Got goosebump when they exchanged firepower, the music used in battles is brilliant, makes me feel like i'm watching an opera performance lol. Merkats saved the day for alliance side, the old geez knows the Empire side more than anyone else in Iserlohn fortress, combined with his experience versus the new and hasty Admiral on the offensive side, the outcome was clear. However Kempf made an ambiguous report to Reinhard, and he seems frustrated. This man is just as ambitous as many others, and he's striving to earn a place in Reinhard's mind, so defeat is not an option, he'll probably do something haste and crazy to win the next battle.
