THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
So ends another show of most amazing light Yuri romance of friendship proportions and most EPIC mecha style and action. I am totally MINDFUCKED of this episode. Mainly by the following spoiler
WTF flower Wormhole? Some form of dimensional transponder warp hole? I am totally O_O at it’s SFX and setup though. The 2 things that really caught me up are:

1. Astelia’s chest in the following,

WTF do you see that symbol! It’s the same that appeared last episode on the onscreen of the Muginami and Lan’s Voxes. Surely can it mean that she is Master Pilot that can control at will all of them or is she the Yukine or part of Yukine’s powers receiver? Very want to know what is up.

2. Oh wow Earth in the following,

It’ now looks like Saturn with a green ring.

I find the scenery in the spoiler
to be totally breathtaking. It’s amazing that scenery and in general many more of them in this episode. Nice swimsuit stuff at the end.

In thee end it really gave out a EVA like feeling of things not being fulfilled, hence S2 will get better.

In overall from 8/10 to a 9/10 along with the BDs have no nipples on top of that so it's a good sign that fights and imperfections may be better in the BDs. The manga does have them but the anime obviously gave out the animation of the Mechas which more than enough should be better in the BDs. That being said Rinne distinguished itself from other animes by being Yuri light toned in a friendship manner with dramas aplenty and Mechas SFX with CGs brain orgasmic for me. As such it exceeded with a storyline that is some mysterious of colonial war and the use of new weapons whether developed by them or found by them suddenly left out and suddenly decided for the finder to use them with not knowing their full effects such as the tablet suggests. IMO that might be it with LeGranite's deal.

Lan will etched into the minds of many not only for her body but also her character and WAN! I can't get enough of that expression. Lan for me was a Pale White Skin girl that I have a fetish of for IRL girls hence it appealed to me.

However FEAR NOT ALL! An OVA is on its way:

Use Google translate if you want for it.
as news to console the many who T_T I RESPECT for in mourning the end of this S1 and awaiting S2. In general the comments were great and I had fun seeing this with my friends here. I tried for GIFs and all but never enough time to do all the ones I want. At least we have club on MAL of this.

Astelia having that mark, things just got hotter, hopefully she has good intentions with all that power especially if she can control all voxes, I like her one piece swimsuit it makes her quite sexy.

5/5

9.5/10

I would rather have the two seasons combined as one. I'm going to miss this show. A lot of potential for the next seasons with Asteria having that mark and the spirit of Midori meeting Madoka.

This episode has a load of surprises that I laughed hard for real. Not too much, not too little, but just right.

And oh, Astelia... you know, you... Wow. :))

LOOKING FORWARD FOR THE NEXT SEASON!

Everyone is going to have different taste.

For me this was pretty entertaining to watch this season. I have't watched a mecha-type anime in............forever. I'll be waiting for the 2nd season.

i thougth it was one of the better series for the season. the end opened up some story for season 2. thought for a moment that they left the battle out completely. was great. reminded me of eva when madoka was talking to that one woman.
Dont bother replying to my posts in forums, dont check them afterwards.

Disapointing mid series finale. Anyway for now 7/10.

Also - for a second I really thought that they kill off Googlevideo.

LOL @ confession even if it's fake (movie shoot). Lan probably was pissed.

Also, reverse opening hmm

Anyways, back to the real battle.

Tearful goodbye to Lan.

Also, great to hear the song: "Try Unite!" by Megumi Nakajima again.

Didn't see the cliffhanger as I thought I would predict but still interesting episode and first half of this epic mecha series.

8/10

I have to say this was a beautiful ending really loved how they still managed to contact each other somehow.
And seeing Madoka cry was a bit unexpected.
I wonder if there will be a second season as this ending doesn't seem to be suggesting such tho there where a few things that did need a better explanation.
For instance who was the girl Madoka saw at that green ocean i was thinking that it could be Yurikano it was mentioned that she looked a lot like Madoka.
And that girl at the green ocean did seem like the older version of Madoka with the exemption of her breasts.
Then there was the meeting of Lan and Muginami aren't the ones they are working for enemy's?
And what will happen ones they return to Earth?

I watched episodes 1-11 in one sitting and I pretty much enjoyed it all the time, but this felt off. I didn't like how they started this episode, I was so confused that I went back to episode 11 to see if I missed something but I didn't. If I didn't know that there was a season 2 to look forward to this would be a-piece-of-shit-ending.
I think it's just me but I wasn't impressed at all by the giant flower and the beach, the visual quality seemed not that high, more average and seriously, Muginami wrote a fucking letter and sent it to Madoka, what the hel.
Oh, and Lan's brother killed how many people just like that, asshole.

Yeah big FUCK YOU TO HIM! Little arrogant snot shit! I hate his little snobby ass Tom Cruise shit face. No offence to Tom but his face irks me sometimes as being fake well the same shit applies to the Brother. Totally agree with you that Lan's brother = SOB.

Hahah, i liked seeing Madoka playing karuta in this episode. Where was Lan, she should have played too! (Lan and Chihaya from Chihayafuru have the same seiyuu, so that should have been pretty cool to see or this was done on purpose)

Really like the storytelling this episode, I was like "where's Muginami?" then it all made sense afterwards. Was that Yurikano that Madoka was talking to?

Good ending, probably the best so far. I had the least expectations for this show, so that's probably why I enjoyed it so much. 7/10

The beginning was confusing a bit, for a while there i started to wonder if i missed an episode. Actual explaination about what happened after previous ep was around halfway through episode so, a bit late.
This was probably the best ending for S1 i could imagine though, of course i liked it.
Looking forward to next season and OAV episode very much.

Good episode,just the beginning.

The first scene made me laugh...and horny to bad that it was fake :(

So in the end earth had some changes with that ring on it i most say it looks kinda cool.

Madoka meeting probably(future her,his mom or Midori spirit) that make her senses back,i still wonder what that big flower was for?? to absorb the storm??

Lan brother seems kinda dick he just kill hundreds of person like nothing,i can see him the final boss for next season.

The goodbye between Lan and Madoka was cute beyond the yuri vibes was funny specially the 4 "bye bye".

Asteria seems that it has an interesting past having the mark,what is she also she looked cute in swimsuit.

At the end Madoka back to the helping people and waiting for them to return.

Good anime it was entertained it had action comedy and yuri vibes so it was fun,8/10 cant wait for second season to see how this ends!!

Amazing episode, brilliantly directed with great narration and a very, very good ending for this first season. Overall, the first part of the season was kind of average but it really took off with the Villagiulio/Muginami part and the last 3 or 4 eps were really good. Great fights, characters and animation overall. 8/10 and I'll definitely watch the second season since it was way better than I anticipated.

It was an ok ending, but somehow I'm just not connecting emotionally with any of the characters. I moved this down from an 8 to a 7 because of that (as I have Mouretsu Pirates for much the same reason--and of course the two shows have the same director). There are a lot of strong elements here, but it just isn't coming together for me. I will probably watch the second season, but at this point I much prefer Aquarion Evol (which covers pretty much the same territory).

Ok ending. More like intermission between the two seasons.

First 10 episodes or so are quite plain and boring though....

Will check out season 2 because things are left unresolved.

Amazing series for me. I loved every episode.

Gotta say I was like "WTF" throughout the first 5 minutes, it being told in flashback (though with the yuri moment, I was like "Wait wait wait the director took out the yuri! HE TOOK OUT THE YURI! DON'T FALL FOR IT!" I almost did then "cut!"

The giant flower thing was weird. What was that all about...

Also, I'm willing to bet that that girl Madoka saw was Yurikano...

And woah! Moid's random freak-out scared the shit out of me! He was so crazy.

I almost cried a couple times in this episode. One was when Madoka broke down after saying goodbye to Ran, and the other was when the show ended where the show began. So fitting.

Poor Madoka. All alone now.

Funny how the three aliens became butlers (with one maid) at that place.

I can't wait for the next season! To go for the cliche, I hope it's Maru! :D

I have to say I enjoyed the second half of the anime a lot. There are a lot of things unanswered, but hey, we have a second season for that! Hopefully.

7/10 from me and if the second season keeps it the way it has been, for the second part of this season, along with answering some of the questions many have, I won't mind coming back and bumping my rating to an 8/10 for this season.

Primarily because the girls in the anime is absolutely kawaii. Not only the three, but all of them in Kamogawa Girl's High. <3

Wasn't a huge fan of the flow for this episode, but everything was resolved and set up for S2 in a pretty squishy way. Nothing mindblowing or ridiculous, but definitely a cute show.

Kept hoping that Lan would throw in a "Woof!" farewell at the end, but was disappointed, alas.

Yume you might be on to something. Im thinking Asteria is one that shutdown Midori(Vox Aura). When I watched this, I felt like there was a gigantic hole from last to the beginning of this ep. Im happy they showed the last bit of the fight.

Cant wait for Season 2!!

Nice ending.

Seeing Yurikano talking to madoka and their conversations, could it be that Yurikano is just pretending to be dead and is here on earth? And why is she talking to Madoka? Hmm...there has to be a connection between the two.
