I think there were a lot of interesting character developments this time around.

Reuental seems to have made a turnaround for himself. He's not 100% guilt free but at least now he looks to be gunning against Oberstein instead. Mittermeyer is also in the same camp. Even worse for Oberstein, it appears the even Reinhard is having to disagree with him on several occassions. So far it looks like Oberstein's supporters are getting to be few and far between. He's always prepared and scheming so he probably will see his enemies getting ready in advance. He'll definitely need to prepare for this time.

Yang's outward appearance still paints the picture of a laid back leader but he's constantly thinking. His crew figured he was sleeping but he was able to think through and analyze everything they said along with further planning. The question now is what will he do when word gets out that Reinhard wants to negotiate the return of Lennenkanpt.

Mittermeyer defended Yang during the meeting but that was with the belief that Lennenkanpt was still alive and would be available for questioning should he be brought in. With Lennenkanpt dead there will be a shadow over any explaination they try to give. In a way that's probably the outcome Reinhard eventually wants though. He's restless and seems to be searching for his next battle. The only one suitable enough for that challenge would be Yang. Yang still has a lot of prep work that needs to be done first though.

Julian is showing some good initiative of his own. He's already had plenty of experience on the alliance side, some liason work with Phezzan, and his latest dangerous trip to Earth. Going to Odin he can continue to expand his knowledge of the current state of affairs throughout the universe. With more experience, his knowledge can prove invaluable in dealing with all sides.

Seems like Reuental has decided against going for power. I wonder if Reinhard and Mariandorf are gonna get married possibly. I was kinda laughing when everybody was talking about how much of a slacker Yang is while at the same time Yang was doing some heavy thinking ^_^ Seems like Oberstein is still the manipulative, evil, powehungry man as always.

Fantastic, the scene where Attenborough and Walter were talking while Yang was "sleeping" was really well done. Also, Reinhard looks like even more of a badass now.

It's going to be interesting when Walter meets his daughter, I think. On a side note, Reuental is definitely one of my favorite characters from this series now. His character progression has been just outstanding.

Again, there's a lot going on this episode... one of them includes the final preperations to move the capital from Odin to Phezzan. Hilde will become regent at Odin, and Reinhard will take just about everyone to Phezzan with him.

Reuenthal and Wolfgang are looking ever more determined in stopping Oberstein from further manipulating Reinhard. Their assumptions couldn't be more right as we saw a bit of disagreement between Oberstein and Reinhard earlier. (who supposedly attained his Super Saiyan Lv.3 form between episodes)

Julian continues his journey, heading over to Odin to gain yet one more viewpoint, which may prove invaluable in the future. Poplan on the other hand... has his head in the right place.... sort of.

It's also interesting to note that Yang isn't always napping, but rather in deep thought, carefully considering what his next his next action should be... and with Frederica compiling all the information they and Merkatz have gathered, he should be as ready as he'll ever be for what comes next.

Okay, it took me 64 episodes, and I'm not sure which part of this one made me say it - Reuenthal, the exchange between Cazellnu,Walter&Dusty and Yang's thoughts inbetween, Julian's idea, or the fact that the planet that first rebelled is El Facil, so important to Yang in terms of his military career (just a detail, a very nice one however) -

Reinhard always comes up with a different excuse for the family thing. Seeing as he's already said he doesn't care about creating a dynasty, Emil will probably end up getting groomed into an ideal Kaiser. I only wonder if a warrior like Reinhard can last long enough to do that.

Reuenthal's ambition is getting more interesting. I find it difficult to place exactly where his loyalties lie. Perhaps it's divided between the Kaiser, the Kaiser's brilliance, and his personal dreams that have only grown larger with his accomplishments.

like everyone else I loved when everyone was making fun of Yang's laziness while he was actually thinking up elaborate plans. That scene reminded me of code geass and how lelouch always acted when he was at school XD

Reinhard's hair grew quickly didn't it? He has kind of become the original bishounen.

The thing about him needing an enemy is interesting. But I do like this new dynamic of Reinhard as supreme ruler and Yang as rebel leader. Reinhard has taken on the opposite role from how he started out, and he knows it.

Also, he seems really uninterested in family life or romance at all. I wonder if he will ever even hook up with anyone in the series. It seems the only people he ever truly cared for were his best friend and his sister.

This episode showed a little more of Reuenthal and Oberstein's conflict. The scene where they were meeting about Lennankampt showed how similar they were. Mittermeyer appeared to be flustered so Reuenthal stepped in and seemed to be more of a match for Oberstein. First they make us think Oberstein needs to protect the empire from Reuenthal, but now it looks likes a complete reversal. Very interesting.

See what happens when you have absolute one will tell you that you need a haircut! Where is Kaiser's fashion adviser?

Julian has the potential to become a favorite character soon. The Alliance, Phezzan, Earth, and now Odin. He's gonna have some interesting opinions in the future.

Once again this season is turning out to be better than the previous, it seems that this series only gets better towards the end. Again there were some very nice allusions that have made this season seem more subtle and interesting. The beginning of the episode was visually referring to the painting Wanderer above the Sea of Fog by Caspar David Friedrich, that symbol of simultaneous insignificance and mastery over nature and unknown future. The background music was great there as well (sounded like Wagner though I didn't recognize it). The Alliance situation reminds me of France under Nazi occupation.

The scene with Yang's men lamenting his lack of ambition while he's planning ahead was really well executed too. And it was funny seeing Reinhard has turned into Fabio. My favourite moment was Poplan saying that one needs at least a few affairs to be called virtuous because the word has no meaning without experience.

So the last time we saw Reinhard was when he was reading the biopic on the Goldenbaum Dynasty, sometime between July 14th and July 16th. It's now July 30th, and his Half a month.

I'm pretty sure his hair has been gradually getting longer throughout the series, so it didn't really surprise me that his hair had gotten that long in half a month. Even if I'm wrong, I don't care as I'm pretty confident Reinhard now has the best hair in anime. The nickname "Golden Lion" definitely fits him now. I'm finding Hildegard's analysis that he's looking for his next battle. I think that he has proceeded too fast in his rise, battle is pretty much all he knows at this point. At least he himself is aware of this.

Reuental bitching out Lang was awesome, it'll be interesting seeing Julian going to Odin, Yang thinking up a plan while the others say he "naps all the time" was brilliant, and El Facile is the first planet to succeed the Alliance. Gotta love it.

Reuenthal + Mittermeyer vs. Oberstein square off!

woooot Reinhard got long hair, looks neat.

And now Reinhard takes complete control over the Alliance while "Rebel" Yang plans his next move. Good development.

El Facil has revolted? Not sure that is wise . . . (by the way, they should totally make it so that the Iserlohn Fortress can move, and just use that to go planet hunting.) . . .

That made me laugh. He's actually thinking when he's "slacking". XD

Reinhard has luscious blonde hair now, huh? I wonder if Yang will take up the role of his opponent, or if Reinhard will incite conflict with him...

Oskar stole the episode for me. Yang's crew were entertaining as usual too. I look forward to their reunion with Merkatz and co (especially Walter/Karen).

Along with the many other thought-processes and development, there were two especially big announcements this episode...

- Reinhard is changing headquarters to Phezzan
- El Facil has claimed independance

It looks like it's that time again for the Reich. Alliance is definitely finished if it comes to that, but let's see how all the other major players react. Especially "Rebel" Yang.

Reuenthal's attack on Lang was epic! Wakamoto, Norio is so incredible, and it takes a special character like Reuenthal to allow him to shine. Loving the politics and maneuvering and logic, its glorious.

Was hit by a lightning bolt when El Facil was announced to have become autonomous from the FPA. The show knows how to bring back nostalgia from its own roots/backstory, it's like watching poetry in motion. Simply amazing, nay Legendary.

Still finding it unbelievable that Reinhard's hair grew so quickly. And I totally agree with Reuenthal and Mittermeyer how Oberstein needs to be put down. He is doing Reinhard no good.

Another good episode. I'm really liking Oberstein, for some reason I think he's cool. Maybe its the way that he calmly deals with things and that he has a lot of power over Reindhart. I wonder what they were talking about at the end with the planet that ceded from the Alliance. I guess we'll find out next episode.

I think an explanation is in order regarding Reinhard's hair. Did it grow that fast from him being ill, or is it a weave?

There are a lot of time skips in this anime. But yea, they don't really do a good job at the transitioning.

lol how the hell did Reinhard's hair grow that fast? It looked like it was getting longer gradually, but suddenly it got super long. I looked at the timeframe that passed since the first episode of the 3rd season and its only a few months at best xD Well I'll think of it more as his hair was growing gradually through the series and we naturally arrived at this point lol

Anyway, good episode. At the end of the episode it said El Falcile broke away from Empire so I'm guessing that's part of the plan Yang decided on.

I loved how everyone ganged up on Oberstein . He's pretty much in everyone's doghouse now and he regularly pisses off Reinhard as well.

Interesting looks like Ruental's ambitions have burned down a bit, maybe hes just focusing on getting Oberstein out of the way first lol I like how Reuental and Mittenmeyer have special colored capes of blue and red that's cool and funny at the same time. Just makes it so obvious they're both essentially the #2 under Reinhard.

Wow Reinhard let miss marindorf be the governor of Odin if I remember correctly? I don't know when excatly most of them are moving to Phezzan but hopefully Reinhard will at least still be on Odin when Julllian arrives to makes it more interesting :p

I'm still pissed off at the Rosenritter sub captain dude for leaving Lennenkampt in a cell alone nevermind the rope he could have found whatever ways he could to kill himself left to his own devices. Just idiotic the wouldn't even have a guard actually watching his ass the whole time. That complicates Yang's situation to high hell if he can't given Lennenkampt back to the empire at the very least gonna piss them off and make them hella suspicious

Oh and hell no , the earth church no ways is done. Remember we still have that previous leader of Phezzan missing and also its heavily hinted at that the leader of the earth church escaped as well. And who is to say all of their followers happened to be in that one single hideout in the himilayas?

Prev episode I would have liked to see more of earth 1000 years in the future but oh well!

The meeting scene was intense and Reuenthal was seeing red! Oberstein better tread carefully. He's going to try and find evidence that Reuenthal is plotting so Oscar had better be careful and not say anything out loud. For now he's not planning anything, but I don't think Reuenthal has truly given up his dreams yet.

Yang is kind of screwed. The moment the Empire learn Lennenkampf is dead they might not take it easy on him. Funny hoe even people in the Empire wrongly think Yang is innocent.

And so the capital moves to Phezzan and El Facil of all places declared independence. Crazy.

Also Reinhard's hair is stupid.

Uhm, so now it'll be a stalemate between El Facil and the Empire. I wonder who is running that planet...

All the Empire admirals are discussing about Lennenkampt even though he is dead haha; they won't be happy when they find out the truth.

Really interested to see how Julian's view of the Empire will change once he sees Odin and their nation in its natural state.
