THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Yang looks to be enjoying a happy married life but duty will have to call again. With all the heavy monitoring he'll need to be careful how he goes about it.

I wonder where Julian knows Katerose from? I don't recall them ever intorducing her and the name doesn't look familiar. I guess all will be revealed in due time.

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

Merkatz is the man. Every episode that he is in my opinion of the guy goes up. No matter what happens the guy just keeps truck'n.

I wonder what could possibly be so important on earth. Some sort of ultimate technology? The earth-cult seems to have quite a bit of influence, but it's hard to imagine why, at this point. Mind-control powers, maybe?

Hmm, another new season. The animation seems improved again, enjoyed the new OP's and EP. Wonder when Reinhard will actually have that long hair, lol.

Man this series is crazy, it almost feels like it's just begun. Can't wait to see this develop and I'm still wondering what the Earth force can really do ... they must have some kind of secret technology or something.

Seems like every time everything is about to cool off and be happy something begins to crop up for our heroes. Merkatz is pretty cool and I enjoyed some of the comedy in this episode. Good start for the new season looks like it will be great. Hooray being halfway done!

Merkatz went from Empire to the Free Planets, and now to an independent military force. But will he ever let go of his tight rubber Imperial clothes?

I have this odd feeling that Katerose is from the Goldenbaum Dynasty. Don't know why though.

Nice wedding. Poplan was funny as usual, nice enough to play matchmaker with Julian. Alliance surveillance would probably drive their car into Yang's bedroom. And I still dont understand Merkatz's mindset and motives, what exactly does he want and what/who is he fighting for?

Given that he was ready to end his life before Yang trusted him, isn't he now fiercely loyal to Yang? His admiral has given him an order, albeit rather vague, which he is still carrying out.

Maybe that's oversimplistic and I suppose he could still harbour loyalty to the Goldenbaum Dynasty. Perhaps, the fact that he still wears that imperial uniform is significant, in that it could either indicate aforementioned loyalty or perhaps simply symbolise that an old warhorse is just carrying on with what he's been doing all his life.

Aside from seeing how Reinhard is handling the Empire and wanting to move the capital to Phezzan, this feels like the most hillarious episode yet. It doesn't end with Cazellnu cracking on Yang at his wedding, the whole thing gets taken to the bar where everyone has him set up as a punching bag. XD

In any case, it's good to know that Yang hasn't totally immersed himself into the retired life; he's got Merkatz on standby, preparing a fleet for what will obviously be intended for the upcomming battles with the Empire.

What a great start for the third season. :D

Great start to the new season. Seems like there will not be that much military action in the near future, seeing Yang is retired for now and only has 60 ships.
Looking forward to Julians journey to earth :)

Yep. I say Yang dies somewhere along the way and Julian emerges as the all-along main main character (as opposed to Reinhard and Yang, who are just main characters. Yeah.)

How ironic is the fact that an ex-imperial soldier is FPA's only hope for saving the remains of their army?

uhm where should i start from...lol :P

it was almost a perfect start for the 3rd season ^^,Yang's finally happy and living his life,i'm happy for him :),but i have the feeling he'll be back sometimes soon

Julian's off to a trip on mother earth with his womanizer buddy :p
that girl he fell for is cute,i wonder how'll things turn out between them

the opening song is as awesome as the 1st and the 2nd...the ED song is also good,but not as good as the 2nd ED...i think that it'll become very nostalgic at some point in the series(Julian is looking at some pictures from Yang's wedding,and the lyrics are about the happy times) *God i hope that Yang will not die*

the ED might become my favorite if it will make me nostalgic,but for now i find it only decent

epic...

Is Julian gay? I wish that Merkats or whatever his name is and Yang just give up, just let Reinhard's blonde hair take care of everything

I love Poplan.
He's just such a contrast to the rest of the serious, yet the show doesn't play it off over the top.

As for Merkatz.
I see it like this.
He came to Yang, and gave him his life.
Now Yang has done the same thing to him.
Yang could have asked any one of his subordinates, Attenburogh specifically comes to mind, to take the job of being "KIA" and leading the small force.

Though I can definitly see where everyone others are confused about what and who exactly he is doing.

I have a feeling the name Kreutzer has popped up before for a minor character, maybe one of the nobility? I can't be sure but I would notice that name because of the Beethoven sonata. There are so many characters that aren't really listed anywhere, for example that man in the high council building who looked like Clark Gable will probably never appear again.

The first time I saw Lennenkampf I thought he looks like Stalin. Now they've trimmed his moustache a bit but there's still some resemblance. And Merkatz is just like Burt Reynolds. Also, Louis Mashengo must be the only black person in the universe.

The first 15 seconds really caught me off guard:


"Alright, new season! New OP!"

"Oh shit."

I loved everything about this episode. The new OP, the new ED, the parallels between Reinhard's and Yang's respective ceremonies, Schenkopp in a purple tux, Schenkopp in a red tux, hearing that Reinhard's ambition to rule the universe involves moving the capital to Phezzan, hearing Merkatz expand upon his lot in life...everything was perfect.

Actually, scratch that. I hate that Julian fell for another girl when his destiny is to be with Charlotte.

Never really saw it as a real possibility for Julian to end up with Charlotte...I mean there are two many variables that could get in the way during how ever many years it takes for her to get of age. That Variable being Katerose, who is freaking gorgeous by the way.

Excellent OP, man Reinhard with long hair is incredible. And, at the end when him and Yang walk past one another...well, I'll just say I took a pic and decided to put that as my profile picture.

Blonde loli > redhead tsundere

Julian needs to just have the patience to wait until she's 18. True love knows no bounds. Although I'll also say (spoiler for later this season):

I don't blame you! That shot of them looking over their shoulders at one another as the song swells sends shivers up my spine.

(I also like how Reinhard's cape makes way for Yang, like it has a mind of its own ^_^)

That opening song is the best one so far. For some reason, Yang looks hilarious in a wedding suit and Katerose is hot.

Anyway another good episode.

The idea here is kind of stupid, wait until things settle down, and THEN cause trouble? So waiting until the people are happy, then kick up a fuss so that you can bring back their happiness . . . Too be honest, I would much rather be a citizen under Reinhard's rule than that democracy which was more incompetent than the US. And that is saying something.

Oh God, that OP. Reinhard just had to emphasize his blondeness more by growing his hair out. And foreboding ED is foreboding. Yang enjoying the civilian life looks happy enough (of course, with such a pretty and brilliant wife). For a guy who often complains about being a soldier, he just can't resist not washing his hands clean of the military, can he?

Undutiness = lmao. I thought that was just a joke. Kreuzer's lovely. I had the same reaction as Julian when she gorgeously took off her helmet. Charlotte tho :|

Hah, I'd been thinking about this ever since his exile. He and Schneider were wearing their uniform even in the picnic in the ED.

Yeah man, I'm super worried about that. Julian has always kind of struck me as the eventual protagonist of this story while yang sadly felt kind of like a decoy and reinhart feels kind of like he will eventually become an antagonist without his restraint in the form of his sister and kircheis that no longer are there to support him and keep him in line.

Yes, as everyone here has said the new ED is very very foreboding. They've been emphasizing it every ED by casting it on Julian but this one is by far the most malicious one.

Hopefully the Frederica x Yang never ends XD

As for the secret fleet, I'm not really liking the idea of it. They finally have peace yet if they do something stupid with that fleet they'll screw everything up.
