THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
This whole episode and bit of previous one was screaming one thing - Last Exile
not a bad thing but way that girl looks, supremacy in technology and not knowing what they want to do it reminds me of Guild.

Chiaki is back and this always good - plus it was nice to see her embarrassed, that makes her so cute (not the level of Ai but similar to Schnitzer).
Pirate Council... we'll see how it will work. Idea is nice (still what the state would say about it).

One great thing - seeing once more that crew of Bentenmaru it's not only those in command but there is lots of other folks (I wonder where they went during cosplay pirates part).
Also I liked that identity of Parabellum captain was not revealed (still it seems that both Kane and Misa may know/recognized something about him).

and additional nice detail - why Empire is building ships like this? And they want do develop them quickly - war with another schizo-tech power? I would like to see it.

The episode left off on a cliffhanger. I want to know who that girl is in the Grand Cross.

And yeah! Another cliffhanger and we once again are left waiting for the new episode to arrive next week!! Almost nothing interesting happened this episode, though I expected it eagerly.
And although no one else reacted to the name Ironbeard, Misa suddenly got serious by hearing it. And what's with Kane's perching up lock of hair? XD
Of course, I too want to know who is that girl in that strange ship. Seems like Marika will meet her face to face, judging from the preview.

Hmm. I got the opposite out of it. For one thing, we got a huge dump of historical background information as well as hints the Empire is scared of something.

I'm thinking it wasn't so much the name, as maybe the voice, she reacted to.

I expected Marika to have already worked out a plan for if they ran into the Grand Cross again. The look on her face makes me think I was right - she was actually looking forward to it.

The endless debate between fans and haters. At one point, after spending a lot of time on MAL, you just realize it's totally pointless.

Such a great episode~
This show never disapoints!

I figured that couldn't have been the same guy, it had to have happened too long ago. Will Marika be the one to next lead a Pirate council for the first time in many years? I do wonder.

And what is the goal of Grand Cross exactly?

And, yes, More Chiaki is always very very good ~

She needs to stay in the spotlight for the rest of the season!

Pretty nice episode if you ask me lots of information again and it got me really interesting in the next episode.
That flashback we saw of all the pirate ships heading towards that asteroid the first captain we saw looked like one of Marika's ancestors maybe her grandfather.
Seems like Misa is pretty famous as well i wonder why she was called bloody.

I am pretty certain that the girl why attacked Marika at the end knows her but i guess we have to wait till next week before we get a explanation of that.
Ironbeard seems to like his sound effects even sending them over all data streams.

Ya know a lot were suspecting that that babe could be Ririka.


Ok, so the captain of the parabellum is call himself "Ironbeard" I guessing that he's a parody of "Black Beard" and the ship is a parody of the "Queen Ann's Revenge."

I know this episode is full of information dump, but somehow the only thing I care right now is Kane's hair. I need to know the mystery of Kane's hair and why it matters

Indeed, I couldn't stop thinking about that throughout the episode.
Great episode with a cliffhanger, this show is getting so good lately.
I want to see that battle so badly.
I almost never read discussions after I made my post, if you want to reply PM me or post on my profile page.

I get the feeling Kane is either related to Iron beard OR Ironbeard in some form. When Ironbeard showed up the navigator girl focused on Kane as if she noticed something and the second time when they face the Grand Cross again she remarks he "seemed happy" and they focus on that itty little fact of his hair getting messed up. Add that to a few remarks earlier in the show about how Kane is always formal and a little too straight with Marika and the few times where he did went a little crazy, and also the lots of times he's shown himself to have a LOT of pirate contacts outside the Bentenmaru crew (even more than Misa's, Kane was the one who found out someone was out to kill Marika in the last arc) and Kane right now has a huge "I'm suspicious !" neon sign on his head.

The way they zoomed in on that hair was so suspicious so that must have been important, or it was a fake planting.

Ririka looks freaking great.

Whats the mystery with Kane's hair!?! Hmm... both Misa and Kane reacted when they saw/ heard Ironbeard.

A rather good episode, it's nice having Chiaki back, I like her a lot. I'm more and more convinced that Mami is a descendant of Arashiyama. 4/5, looking forward to the battle.

IKR? That's almost the only thing I took away from the episode, despite all the other interesting info that we got. Why is his hair going "doink" and perking up?

I think the suspicious thing you felt he has is that he is the one of the crew that knows his captain is alive and help him organize his death. That explains the way he talks to Marika since he still doesn't really see her as his captain since he knows his old captain is still alive.
It's obvious now that Ironbeard is Marika's father. His voice is the voice of the guy describing the episodes and Misa also seemed to have recognized the voice.

P.S- Ririka was hot in that black swimsuit.

I really want to know the significance of Kane's hair flicking up! I'm pretty sure Ironbeard will be Marika's father but I'm just wondering why he faked his death. Should be interesting.

Oh crap, here we go, Marika better figure out how to run because I don't think they have a shot.

And Chiaki getting owned by Marika every time is always funny.

Misa and Kane definitely knows what's up with Ironbeard.
"May those who accept their fate be granted happiness."

While they mentioned early on in this series that the Galactic Empire was strong; I didn't expect them to be as strong as the Grand Cross is. Still don't like its design though.

Opens up so many possibilities.
