New OP rocks. Sasuga Shikao-san!

I already know the story from manga, but I still feel that the guy who explain about the sun is scary.

ED...ok... CM was aired before ED, but... CHIBI LAG AND NICHE <3!!

This was another really interesting episode. This season just keeps on getting better...

New OP is also really nice and unique.

Not sure what I think of the new OP and ED. The visuals of the ED were interesting, but the OP had so much recycled animation it was annoying.

The episode itself was better than I was expecting, although I don't think the final scene adapted very well from the manga, which was just so heartwarming and wonderful.

Riveting episode. Though the dark recollection of that day took from the happy moment of Gauche regaining consciousness and his old self. Loved Niche's grading Sylvette and now Aria's strength vs. Lag. Too funny. Like but don't love the new OP and ED.

Whoa, information overload. I was worried the Aria subplot would be filler but the story is only getting better and better.

I have to admit it was FMA-style lol. Very emotional episode.

New OP & ED are both a big step down from the previous ones, however the episode was very good.

OH SH--!! This episode was so intense! "That light is alive!" That was some creepy light all right.. o.o That artificial Sun's mystery is getting interesting. Letter Bee just can't get boring, ever. There's always something to put you on the edge of your seat.

I hate the new OP, I was so ready to sing along to the old one and then they play that crap. D: The ED isn't the best but it kinda goes with the anime.

YAY! Gauche finally woke up for real~ But I still need some Zazie-ness.. Zazie, where'd you go? *sob*

Ugh I hate openings where they re-use scenes. The song isn't that great either, but it'll grow on me. Not sure about the ending.

Anyway excellent episode. Actually hearing the 'sun' talk makes it so much creepier. They also did a better job switching between the story and Gauche reunion than in the manga, which made me happy.

And I never noticed how much the commander Balor looks like Hazel. Interesting. It seems most likely that they're the same person, this incident would give him a good reason to join Reverse.

Me thinks the amount of fillers will increase starting now. I really don't like the new OP; it doesn't really suit the attitude and mood of this anime. The ED is awesome however. Is it just me, or is Niche going no pantsu in the very last picture at the end of the ED?

Great episode... I love the new OP song, but as far as the scenes to match it, it was a big let down. Recycled animations scenes, and I think even some recycled scenes from one of the openings from the first season, too... how lazy can you be? The new ending was a nice touch... Chibis FTW always!

I thought the final scene kind of ruined the atmosphere that they built up through the entire episode. I know lag jumped at Gauche in the manga as well, but it kind of broke the suspension of disbelief a bit.. other than that.. great episode!

Really different OP and ED. Like the new OP, meh on the ED. Nice to see that the true plot is actually starting.

*knocks on wood* Maybe we won't be getting fillers this season :O

I feel its too soon for Guache to be back.
The preview for the eps 15 hints at his confusion??

But I didn't read the manga...so this is purely a hypothesis

Loved this one! LOVED IT LOVED IT!
When Gauche got up, looked at his sister and said "Sylvette?", my immediate reaction was ºOº. But then, I realized something: could he be just acting up? He was shot with Lag's shindanjou, so regardless of whether he is back or not, he should have some memories that came as result of being shot.
Also, the sun being alive is really intriguing me. I really am having a hard time resisting the temptation of spoiling myself back to the stone age by reading the manga.

Also, I really like the OP, though it doesn't really fit the show itself. The ending though, does fit.
BTW, can someone give me the OP's name? Can't really read that many kanjis >.<

I never expect that this episode would be that AWESOME. Seriously I love the mystery about the artificial sun, it's just so mysterious. And glad to see Gauche woke up. New OP is okay but the ED song is nice.

I like the song of the new OP, but I think that it doesn't suit with Tegami Bachi :/
And now we finally have Gauche in the good side (?) again. I'm really happy about that.
So, the artificial sun has something like an embyo inside it...? Weird, but interesting.

Btw, I kinda like the animation during the ED, nice.

Didn't like both the new OP and ED song. Old ones were better.

And this was a really great episode. Finally some truth about that day.
I have to admit though that I was slow to pick up that Aria was talking about Gauche when she was saying about a person who lost a part of his heart back on the Day of Flicker. Fillers clouded that one episode in the first season :P
But yay! Gauche is awake now. The reunion was a bit marred by the revelation of the secret of the artificial sun but it's okay. I'm glad things are really moving a lot in this season.

Is that Atsushi Abe(Touma, Mashiro) who voiced the triplets? And what's their connection to Lloyd?

Also, lol, the artificial sun looked like the Truth from FMA.

The new OP and ED, not that it matters (to me) that much, seem very "girly". Whatever...
Great progress in story and now I'm curious of what they plan for their aim, fight the capital, uncover their secrets?

nice new op, though the op sequence with that song makes the characters look cocky/pompous. need the humble warm feel those old op gives.

A great episode indeed.This second season surpasses the first in every way.
Almost every episode thus far was important to the main plot.
Hope the second half won't disappoint us.

Gauche is back!!! Yeiii!! It was definitely worth waiting, the ending was so touching, not mentioning the preview with Roda and lots of Gauche!! =D

The sun story was very interesting, I must admit I never imagined it. I liked the new op song, a little odd for tegami bachi, yet, very nice.

Gaucheeeee!! Yeah, perhaps he looks a little suspicious, but in the last shot he has such a tender expression, I'm sure he's back.

mmmmm meaty plot episode!! lol young Dr. Thunderland.

That sun thing is creepy.. reminds me of something from FMA.

Lag is almost certain not human now, he glowed again. He said his eye was given to him by his mother to cure something. I bet that amber in the eye has something to do with the artificial sun.

aaahhh they almost caught up to the manga! does that mean fillers??

not really fond of the songs, but the ending animation is just adorable.

after watching this, i an convinced that the "light" took a body part from everyone and created Lag. the memories of his mother is probably Gouche's. the empty frames were probably memories that were destroyed or not relevant. the question is, why was he made?

somthing I forgot to mention before
not spoilering but Balor- the commander from the capital- is the same person who took Lag's mother ( only in manga in first chapter)

Is it only me or the eye that's been taken from all the people is the right eye which the sun doesn't have !
I'm pretty sure now after watching the sun calling Mother that Lag is related somehow to that artificial sun . and don't forget that he has the right eye and the sun has the left

Great episode, I loved it a lot~ Finally Gauche is back to normal though I don't think he'll remain with them for long. I'm getting overy exited now, I guess I should catch up with the manga~
I don't really like the new OP animation though the song by Suga Shikao is great. But I loved the new ending song~

New OP/ED doesn't fit at all.
Previous OP was the best OP so far (season 1 included), and the first ED in season 1 was the best one so far.
As for the episode, oho so you woke up at last Noir Gauche.
Protip: I don't really check the forums anymore, so if you want something, take it on my profile.
Is it time for my long-awaited return to the forums? щ(゚Д゚щ) Nope™, probably not.

Didn't like the OP/ED that much (previous ones were way better) but the ending animation sure was cute (chibi Lag and Niche <3).

As for the episode... It was great. Best one so far. Even though I was overloaded with information. I think the airship (Progre) was made in order to get those people to look at the sun. Just that. The sun is made of human heart according to... Roda? (I don't really remember if she was the one to say it but someone did, I'm sure of it.) That's why Reverse is trying to have the Gaichuu eat it. According to Houdai, the light had been getting weaker before Progre's construction was completed. All of the people who looked at the sun when it flickered lost a part of their heart (along with a part of their body, which I don't quite understand...). Then the sun returned to normal. I don't know what the sun is (really, that thing was scary) but I think the parts of the heart of those people that were taken away are the reason it still shines and the government constructed that airship in order to feed the sun with "heart".

Then we have Lag. How is it connected with the sun? He was born in the day of the flicker and is heart is now overflowing with memories that aren't his. Could it be that those are the memories that were taken away from those who saw the sun flicker?

Besides all that info... Aria was pretty cool right there^^ And that scene with Gauche getting back was... heartwarming. And Roda is in next episode's preview so she's fine. This season is so much better than the first one...

Don't worry. This was just something they threw together because of lack of time/budget or something. The opening gets completely new animation in episode 18 and it's really, really good. And the music grows on you, at least it did for me.
