lol Cordelia is good at fighting eh o___O

Maybe she really did became stronger now than before and since she once was a dancer so she can do some acrobatic moves and use it on her fight.

Maybe she can before too, but she was chained so ...dunno

But yeah it would have been better if Brian was the one who fought with Albert since it looks so Corny to see Cordelia fight that way hehe.

Kujo's hair was so bad err...

We were rewatching the series this past weekend and a couple of people made an observation. Did Cordelia take fighting classes from Master Yoda? I had Star Wars Episode 2 flashbacks throughout the fight sequence.

This show....I swear it was fantastic at some point, then it just got chaotic and way too dramatic.

This is what I saw:
-They introduce Brian #2 who turns out to be a murdering psycho.
-Kujo shaves his head and gets beat to a pulp because of a ring. What a dork.
-Grevil seems to constantly hint at character growth yet never happens. He is still stuck as a tool.
-A bunch of old people with super-human speed wearing masks possibly kill off major characters.
-Sauville had an embarrassing pink bunny rabbit cult/army.
-Cordelia must have been taught by Jet Li's grandfather on lessons of kicking ass.

Sorry but this show went from a 10/10 anime to a silly, overly dramatic piece of non-sense the past couple of episodes. The ending better deliver.

This has gotten really strange. Mr. Propaganda de Blois vs. Obi Wan Cordelia showdown. There's Bioshock splicers and one of the Brians is going psycho. Then there's little ol Kujo as a soldier getting pounded on over a ring. WTF?!

I think I will wait till tomorrow to watch the ending.

I wouldn't say Cordelia is 100% dead.. is likely that she actually survives with a pretty nasty scar.
I mean... wishful thinking hurts no one >.>

I do believe both Roscoes will be dead by the end of the anime.

i'm pretty sure if that didnt kill her, the fire will, so if she survives, her hair would all be burnt

For me end of this ep was something like:
- Fu*k yeah! Victorique escaped.
- Fu*k no! why Roscoe want to kill Victorique?
- Fu*k yeah!, finally that rapist got what he deserved.
- Fu*k no! Why she had to sound like dying. (it could have been that guy's blood, not her)
- Fu*k yeah! It's not over even though normally thinking that would be last ep. There is hope that they will be together again in last scene. If yes that would be 10/10 from me.
- Fu*k no! It can end like: "They didn't met after that but their hearts were connected forever." if so that would be 9/10 from me.

I just love those sinusoidal plots. :P

Extermely enjoying this series and hope that will enjoy last ep as well.

i know there was a hell of a lot of action this episode

Cordelia sure knows how to fight. I hope she survived by the end of this series. And both Brian probably be dead when this series ended....hopefully there's no 3rd Brian suddenly appeared =)

I have no comment on Kujo's new hairstyle...

So Cordelia can fight? Heh..
I laughed everytime Kujo he now in Japan or China?

Please, Cordelia. I don't want you dead.

Sorry for being stupid but I really am lost here. How did this war break out again?

But I don't understand something. Why do they prepare for the war in 1925?

Oh god, this anime is defying logic. LOL Making fires appear randomly, fighting with 3293 pounds of long blonde hair keeping you down, fighting in FIRE LOL

Obviously Vic's gonna survive the Brian 2# :P

I loved this episode actually. Pretty epic.
I'm glad that the evil Blois dude died but I didn't want Corde to die too :(
Why are Cordelia and Brian so badass?! Victorique and Kujo are so boring compared to them. ;/

Kujo's haircut. Ew. ._.

brian 2 can go f himself, after all cordellia has done for her daughter he thinks the best thing to do is kil her? T_T. also it seems that all he wants to do is blame someone for being born, wtf like its victorique's fault that she was born.=, hate it when that happens in anime.

This episode has easily been the best so far because Cordelia got over 20 seconds of air time. Cordelia was absolutely awesome! I'm really really sad she's gone now and I still don't get the double Brain Rosco thing. The music and lighting and everything was just perfectly done.

Bald Kujo? Oh hell no....

Damn... so much happened...

I'm happy Marquis will finally die (though he deserved a much more painful death).
Brian attacks Victorique out of misery, great... Though I doubt she dies.
I had a feeling that it's going to be Cordelia in that dress (especially after the prevous scene when someone entered the Victorique's room and since her face was hidden).
Cordelia is badass, but damn I don't want her to die :( (I mean she still has a chance, but she is probably going to die).
Kujou got his hair cut, he looks so weird :S
Btw, it looks like a lot of people died in that explosion/fire, it's gonna make it look like a terrorist attack from Cordelia. They didn't really explain why Marquis was bad :/ (Though it's possible that Cordelia is going to be believed to be the Charming Monster and thus her action be treated as the right thing to do)

I really wonder how they are going to wrap this up. I'm hoping for a happy ending (I could understand a sad ending, but fuck you, they deserve a happy ending together after the so much shit that happened...)
I also kind of hope that Kujou will have a heroic moment (I really don't want him to just meet Victorique and that's it).
I'm still hoping for a helpful Grevil (unlress he already helped them switching places). I'm pretty sure he is going to turn good in the end.

Cordelia Kicking ass and taking REVENGE on a silver platter...but... dammit this episode. sadly i think its safe to say Cordelia is most likely dead alongside Roscoe twin #1. speaking of Roscoe Twins i get they both love Cordelia but WTF it doesn't entirely make sense as to why he wants to kill Victorique. I mean sure he doesn't want Cordelia to cry no more and want's to stop this BUT he must have known that this plan was ultimate suicide for Cordelia.ALSO why would think Cordelia would want this!ugh Roscoe twin #2 why! now onto Kujo i wont lie if i didn't hear his voice i wouldn't have thought that was him(this isn't entirely true) but damn i love Kujo takes a hard ass beating from his prick of a commanding officer for that ring. i'm really happy they didn't turn him into a wimpy male lead. 5/5 this episode and if it ends well i'm thinking i may have another 10 on my hands.(hell i love it so much i may favorite as well though this remains to be seen).

Wooah, things have suddenly changed into high gear. Kujo is in the Japanese military now and he's getting beat up :(

With Kujo gone, poor Victorique is all alone as well, but at least she managed to escape that deranged father of hers. Seriously, what kind of sicko licks his daughter's face and rapes her mother?

I'm so glad Cordelia got revenge on him but I didn't want her to die ;_; Don't parents have an obligation to live and look after their children? Why do they throw their lives away so easily >:(

And WTF Brian? Why are you trying to kill Victorique? I think he's finally snapped and he picked the worse time to do so.

Well, everything goes wrong!
All those characters dying : Cordellia, Brian Roscoe, probably Jupiter Roger. Those in despair : Victorique, Grevil, the King. Those who are send for a cold death at war, Kujo. I just can't see a happy ending. With that distance, that vision of a reunion seem so far away...

I wasn't expecting Cordelia to appear out of nowhere like that. She's a damn ninja, pulling out those crazy moves, like those two ugly grandmas. I'm glad that she was able to kill Albert from her own hands, she got her revenge against the man who tortured her. She destroyed her dream and his pride.

So Victorique ultimate utility was to use her as a mass gatherer. He kind of wanted to manipulate people like Hitler did, but not with speech and charisma, just with the promise of a victory from a non-existing monster.

Hmm? I believe these series are really good. I seldom felt that the series was boring or something.
However. This episode made me confused... How can daddy start a war with just a fairy tale? It felt like that part went wat too smooth.

Anyway I'm wondering what will happen in the last episode!

This episode makes no sense, it feels like first 22 episodes are from one anime and the 23rd episode is another anime.

The ending was certainly different in tone from the rest of the series.

Half of me liked the old-school anime knife fight and speed lines.

But the other half wanted Victorique to bring down her father using her brains...seeing as that's what she's been doing since the beginning.

But she really couldn't as her 'rabbit' wasn't with her to help.

Looking back, this was probably the turning point where Gosick transformed into something far more profound than I would have imagined. The atmosphere shifted dramatically and everything has felt heavy ever since. It was almost like the past 22 episodes were the calm before the storm, leading to a sudden gale that surpasses all expectation.

That's quite a beating Kujou took there, but his love for Victorique was stronger than those hits.

The end of this episode was intense, I won't believe that Cordelia and Roscoe(1 or 2?) are dead.
