Great Episode!!! So Lags probably not a human, but something more that's taken the human form. Also they said they wouldn't know until he matured. I think my assumption is right, that towards the end of the credits it shows a more adult looking Lag, when he has the gun pointed towards the screen. I also can't wait to see Niche mature one day.

Niche's sister's hair power is crazy, lol. Very intrigued to find out what 'The Light' is that Lag is possibly an embodiment of.
Ara ara.

can't wait to find out if Lag is human or not, but most likely he isn't.

Fantastic episode. This and the previous one were considerably better than any so far imho. I feel like maybe another timeskip might be coming soon? :D I hope so; I love timeskips. Not sure why lol. Niche's onee-san is a really good character imo. I hope she comes back in the series at some point.

Awesome episode. Seeing more of what happened to Niche and her sister at the hands of the townsfolk just pissed me off further. The descendants weren't much better. Stupid people. Like everyone else, can't wait to see what Lag will turn out to be. This show has really picked up the past few episodes and has become a must watch again.

Maka sister's cry in agony and despair really got me. :,( Superb acting by her voice actress.
Lag, Niche, and Steak are the cutest things ever..

Anyway, what's up with everyone wearing cloaks in the next episode? Hmm.

This episode was a real step up to the warm feelings you get when you watch this show.
It was more than that. Can't explain it. Oh well.
The sister's hair was transforming in weird and different things. Fun.
Wonder what they mean by Lag and taking up the form of a human and that stuff.
And also with those creatures in the ice, what does Reverse want with them.
And did Lag leave Niche in there? Coz I didn't see her in the preview.
Does this mean no more Niche? T_T
But there's Roda next time and... Lag with a red hood O.o
Bumping up my score for this show, it's been getting better.

lag is as a big of a cry baby as ever. i think he cried enough to make up for the past few episodes. good stuff though. more plot progression, but it looks like niche will be out of commission for a while.

This episode was great. Everything was epic - story, music, animation... I just love it <3
And I really like how they show the Maka story, I was a little worried that it wouldn't be so great ^^

I wonder, if Niche will grow one day just like her sister... it'll be nice to see it ^^

Ah! These last two episodes were THE two episodes I waited really long to be animated. I love Niche's sister! And their story is so sad, I went teary-eyed all over again watching the episode T.T
And not to mention Niche's sister's comment to lag in the previous episode, and then what Maka said this episode.

But then did they miss something?


And this made me remember what I was thinking about when I was reading this in the manga, and *just* go some more ideas on it! >.<

I mean, covering the last few episodes, we have Gauche "returning" to Reverse, Lag who might not be human (nagging me since the manga)... *looses trail of thought*
well, there was a looong chain I hat there, but to make long-story-short, I got the ideas that maybe Lag is one of the "experiments" from Akatsuki? Like Roda and the girl she and Gauche found in the river. And Gauche, too? but then I get confused at to who is Sylvette, she's Gauche's sister, after all, so it wouldn't make sense.

I really have to this this all over >.<

Can't wait for next week... looks like it's another episode I've been looking foreward too :D

Maka scene is awesome, but it's even better knowing that we know about Niche's past. Remember though Lag's mother was taken away to Akatsuki so I have a feeling that all the answers surrounding Lag's past are going to be answered when the situation around his mother's dissapearance is cleared up.

Niche's sister had really awesome hair, it was amazing :D
Lag being something other than human, hinting at the same thing to manga did ;)
I always feel better after watching Tegami Bachi, that warm fuzzy feeling it gives me is like no other <3

Same here, but there's a lot of questions to find answers for.... and did you notice that somehow lag's now looking for Gauche instead of his mother? not that he forgot about her, but it's just that the story move away from it? I think that it will come t bite back in the future.

Great episode! I wonder if Lag is the Light that Reverse is fighting against?
Also, what really is Lag? This is getting really interesting! :)

Awesome ep.

Hmmm ... So, if Niche experience loneliness she could grow up like her sister? Wow...

Well, it interesting who (or what) is Lag. Maybe he is a bit like Hohenheim from FMA? But now I wonder just how he will now fight since the split with Niche.

I got the impression that this was one of those "the town never really changes" kind of things and the mayor today is just a descendant of the mayor 200 years ago, not actually the same person, but I could be wrong.

*ahem* I was right. Yay!
Hair fight was absolutely incredible, and the whole Maka color scheme and artwork makes me think of Yu-gi-oh but in a really good way. The first half of this episode was really good, the second.... meh.... it dragged a bit, but I did enjoy the backstory on the elder Maka sister (though I thought the whole "I'ma kill you oh wait I just love you" wasn't pulled off very well).

Absolutely agree and I love timewarps/skips/jumps etc as well, I think they could definitely make good use of one in this series.

I still don't like Niche's sister's voice, it makes her sound like an old woman >_<

and I never understood Niche's sister, she was just lonely, but then why try so hard to kill Niche? >_> ... and I hope Niche doesn't grow up, she's so cute the way she is!

and yay major plot arc starting next ep!!!

Did Lag leave Niche? Anyways, Awesome episode. This episode is just so sad when they showed Niche and her sister was separated at the river. Gahh I want to see mature Lag so much. So Lag is, maybe, not a human? Interesting :3

Agreed, she made me tear up a little, which doesn't happen to me often when I'm watching anime. Great episode.

I don't think she was just lonely. Besides her loneliness, she hated humans (and she did have good reasons imo) and thus couldn't bear with the fact that her sister was protecting one. Lag made her see that not all humans are that bad. In other words, she was touched by his heart.

I absolutely loved this episode. Lag was awesome and I don't really mind him crying. He's so cute :D And as long as he keeps being that brave and cool he can cry as much as he wants.

Got even more curious with the hypothesis that Lag may not be human and I wonder why the Maka said "light" in the end... This show is really getting good.

Hopefully we'll get to see a more grown up Lag later on, apparently since his not 'human'.

I love Niche but she can't do nothing with her hair when compared to her sister, her sister's hair is just so amazing.

I have come across a dilemma:
I want Lag to grow up and be a man already (and cry less) but that means that Gauche would also be older.
I don't want an old Gauche. ;'(

Ok, that wins the prize for craziest anime hair ever.

D'Awww, Steak stays with Niche. They look like they're at a spa.
