THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
The Earth cult seems to have become a non-issue since their last outing. Rubinsky on the other hand really has been taking center stage in his behind the scenes machinations. Lang is really in over his head by trusting Rubinsky and thinking he could be the number one ruler of the galaxy.

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

The first part of the episode was so funny to watch, when the admirals were summed to attend artistic shows with the Kaiser agains their will.
I was quite surprised to see Reuenthal seriously taking into consideration the possibility to rebel against Reinhard in his thoughts ! Where are his respect and loyalty gone??
Lang is such an irritating character to plan the Empire fall for a personal grudge against one man, I really hope he will get what he deserves.

Yeah, Lang sure is a greedy old coot. He will go down hard later I suppose.

Bittenfeld. Smiling. Hillarious.

Not only that, but the scene where each of the admirals is trying to get the other to go with Reinhard on these outings cracked me up a good deal.

Still, it wasn't enough to get rid of those feelings of unease from Lang and Rubinsky's plan to isolate Reinhard. I hope the powers that be do something about this situation.

Well he probably thinks along the lines "If he is weak enough to get manipulated than it may as well be me manipulating him".

Anyway an interesting episode that really showed the complexity of doubt very well. As soon as it's there nobody can know if the other people fall for it or not, which inspires more doubt etc..
On to the next :)

This episode is win!

Also, what are you doing Reuenthal!!??

That fat actually thought he could control the universe? Does Rubinsky always drink?
Even when I was in crowd, I was always alone

"There was no fistfight at the opera house." Well, he has a point there, haha.

I can't tell if Bittenfield actually liked the opera or not...

One thing I am sad in.
Mecklinger is one of the most physically imposing Admirals, I have felt.
Yet he has gotten so little screentime.

That departure scene at the end was slightly ominous after everything that's happened, people saying farewells to their fiancées and such. Then again, the narrator didn't butt in to say that this was the last time X and Y spoke or anything. I'm guessing the scene was equivalent to the narrator saying "The trip wasn't going to be as smooth as everyone expected.". Showing farewells almost always means that it's not self-evident everyone will come back.

Best comic relief in the series. And for a second Bittenfeld had me convinced that he actually likes ballet.

I love how intricate and foolproof Rubinsky's plans are: rather than relying on mistakes and missteps from Reinhard and Reuenthal (i.e. two people who don't make many of them), he corrals them into courses of action that are, by Reinhard and Reuenthal's own design, very rational and well thought out. Rubinsky is Lang's puppeteer, but he can't hope to ever pull the strings of the likes of Reinhard and Reuenthal -- so he has to settle for simply writing the script of their own puppet shows.

Surprised that Hilda hasn't responded yet . . . I kind of thought that she knew she loved him . . . Plus she herself probably feels that he needs a wife, but oh well. Anyways I wonder what is going to happen, Though I get this horrible feeling that Hilda and Reinhard will never see each other again (guessing that Hilda, while visiting Reinhard's sister, will get killed by Terraists)

LOL. Comedy in this series was something I was least expecting, but there's been quite a lot across the series and it's pretty much always on point. The conversations between Dusty, Walter and Oliver are especially great.

If Hilda and Reinhard won't ever see each other again I'm pretty sure the narrator would've made sure to spoil it ;)

I like how this is progressing. I can't wait to see how all this is going to unfold when he arrives on Heinessin. I also like that he's building two more fortresses.

True, like he has for every other major event.

You've been saying a lot of true things on all your comments.

So many death flags. If the narrator wasn't so helpful, I'd think everyone would be dead soon.

Looks like Hildegarde has finally clear all her doubts about Reinhard's marriage proposal...I thought they was going to drag this out beyond belief, so that's good.

So are Rubinski and The Earth Cult's plans the exact same? Both want Reinhard to visit Reuental and for Oscar to turn. The Earth Cult want him dead whereas Rubinski doesn't care either way. That's the only difference I can find.

Reuental is thinking about it too. I can't see his own people turning against Reinhard anytime soon though unless something major happens.

Oberstein knows that Lang is meeting Rubinski...But as of yet he's doing nothing to stop it. Or is he? Dominique is so damn stunning. Rubinski's latest hideout was even crazier than the first two.

Bittenfeld's face was hilarious! The admirals trying to get out of all these activities was so amusing. Loved it.

I get the feeling that Lutz won't be coming back alive. Speaking of that why doesn't the fortress honour Steinmetz or Kempf?

Power rankings:
1) Empire. I was thinking of splitting them in two already as Reuental's betrayal will be soon.
2) Julian
3) The Earth Cult
4) Rubinski. I dropped him down a place because Oberstein is now onto him.
4) The Goldenbaums.

MVP: Bittenfeld. Hilarious throughout.

With all the unease and potential betrayal bubbling right beneath the surface, I'm really looking forward to seeing Reinhard's sister again. With her calm composure, she always knows the right thing to say. Hopefully she will tell Hilda what she needs to hear (again).
