THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
The history of the Empire's kaisers looks like something out of a tabloid article. Revenge plots, tyrants, 'immortal' kaisers, kaisers running away with their gay lovers, etc. They sure had a storied history.

I got a good laugh out of the situation of the Yang married life, especially when the subject of who's in charge came up. Lennenkapt seemed far too overzealous in trying to figure out Yang's hidden agenda. He'd probably go crazy from frustration if Yang were to continue the facade for several years.

From what the narrator hinted, it looks like things will start moving once again from here on out. The next move goes to Earth.

Another fun filled history episode. The Kaisers are all pretty interesting and it really distilled that whole "perfect monarchy" image that they try to keep up with. I wonder what happened to that one Kaiser that ran away with his gay lover. Interesting stuff though.

Yang's married life really seems to be pretty happy. I wonder what his great plan is. I know it has something to do with Merkatz though from previous episodes. Wonder when Reinhard is going to get that long hair.

I could watch an anime just about Yang and his neighbours.

The kaiser history was great, such foolishness displayed by rulers, its both hilarious and horrifying, considering this anime is merely a reflection of actual history. When that party-loving horse-riding kaiser was featured, framed photo of his dumb George Bush style shit-eating grin on his face, with the narrator explaining how the dude just loved women and partying and couldnt care less about ruling, I wanted to slap his face off.

Its been repeated over and over throughout the OVA, but Goddamn I hate the whole idea of inheriting power through bloodlines.

Great episode.

The Kaiser history was funny, they were the opposite of the perfect monarchy image.

Lennenkapt doesn't give Yang a rest at all. Other than that, Yang seems to be having a pretty happy life, unfortunately it looks like he will have work to do pretty soon.

It's always interesting to have one of these history episodes. Learning more about the world of LOGH surprises me how realistic it sounds at every detail just because they could happen.

Seeing Slice-of-Life Yang and company has its own fun too, knowing how informal they acted with the guards outside their houses. Yang speaking with that one officer on his level and Mrs. Cazellnu inviting another for coffee each got a good laugh out of me.

This. ^^

Really enjoyable episode, overall very funny but I had the best laugh about Lennenkanpt raging because Yang doesn't obviously plot something *gg*.
In fact I would happily welcome 1 or 2 more episodes like that. Calm, peaceful, funny and witty. But it seems it's gonna get serious again next episode. Also good :P

The kaiser history was interesting, much better than the previous history episode. Maybe it's because the previous one didn't give me the feeling that it's related to actual history, whereas this one was very similar to the way English kings used to be like (maybe German rulers too?). I'm getting more of a feeling again that Yang Wenli is going to be replaced by Julian at some point, Yang is like a main character who doesn't want to be one.

This season is off to a good start. The first season suffered from balance problems and some things I considered stupid. The second season was good but at times I felt that every other episode was stretching the story a bit. So far I've been really liking the series when it's about the internal politics and the philosophy behind it, but I've found the space battles a bit boring. Surely this series has many elements I haven't seen anywhere else and if this season continues to be strong, I'll probably raise my rating. It's not quite a masterpiece though because of the flaws, but I can understand why people would rate it as such because of the awesomeness that can't be found anywhere else.

I actually didn't like this episode so much.The history lesson felt rushed and came right after a previous full episode history documentary. And the Yangs at home felt awkward and forced. I dunno.

Looking forward to having stuff happen again.

I guess this just proves that anyone can write off anything as "awkward and forced". Personally, I wish all SOL anime felt this natural and the history lesson part with Reinhard was pretty engaging I thought.

Wouldn't mind another episode like this, to be honest. But, I guess it isn't meant to be.

I absolutely live this show but sometimes the gender stereotypes found in it really bother me. It is sorta disappointing to see Frederica's role reduced to that of an obedient/supportive wife that has to clean up after Yang.....

Maybe I'm overreacting.

Frederica and Yang kind of make an odd married couple, like they don't know how to behave as a married couple . . . But still rather nice.

The kaiser who nonchalantly passed off the explosion killing lots of people was crazy, simply because he wanted to keep his inane schedule?

The history segment of that episode was bonkers.

A good calm episode. Nothing spectacular happened. Was hoping to see some more action between Frederica and Yang. Maybe another kiss? XD They are a great couple.

Another good episode. I liked the bits with Yang and the other guy's families. It was cool to learn about how the lineage of the Empire was over time.

Enjoyed the litte history lesson.

Seeing Yang and Frederica's married life was nice. I really could just watch something like this as a full length series and really enjoy it. Although their way of marriage is sort of a reminder of how old this show is.

That Homo Kaiser I was like wtf, most of the Kaisers were idiots tbh, I loved that smile of Reinhard made at the end.

Yang is living a peaceful life while scheming, how to use this new era for his own benefits, Fredrica looked way more beautiful in here army uniform, and that cat yawning was so frustrating for me because of my lack of sleep.

it seems Merkatz has started his plan long ago considering that rumors have been spread into the imperial.

I can't wait to see that grand bishop getting butchered by Muller fleet.

An episode of two halves. I enjoyed the first half more with the history of the Kaisers and how similar it was to the Anglo-Saxon and Medieval Kings and Queens of England. The later half with Frederica worrying about get cooking was far less entertaining.

History lesson time! Kinda cool, I would like to know what happened to the gay Kaiser.

Lennenkaptz is annoying. I hope someone kills him or something.

There was a lot of humour in this episode, but the funniest part was how enthusiastic Frederica sounded about making sandwiches.

I think I want more slice of life episodes in LOGH :-] This one was very comfy and relaxing and advanced the plot at the same time. Seems that Yang is planning to corrupt the rulers of the Empire! I'm excited about what's his precise plan though.
