THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Aww, so much concerns.

So I guess the girls goes on a direct attack against the base? Nice. Tbh, I think that Rei has one of the best friends in the world now. I'm surprised that bird has so much power. It freaking ate her even.

Ending was pretty sick imo.

Many people already predicted the last boss (or nearly last boss) will be the crow but how do you make a small bird a last boss? Blow it up and make it bigger of course LOL

So MAL finally starts locking news threads that are only a few weeks old?

I wonder where was the announcement of this change? Or we are seeing yet another case of changes made that impacted users but not communicated to them?

I wonder how long people would put up with this.

As much as I have a bunch of information to share about anime announced recently I cannot share it in news board, and the anime series is too disorganized and chaotic to share information except with people already interested in the particular series.

WTH, that crow ate Rei and turned into a giant alone, makes sense since it's pretty much certain she'd be the last boss from the beginning.

Came out of nowhere too. I know it's wrong, but I couldn't stop laughing for a while after watching that.

Time to give the crow the beat down next and final episode and get Rei back.

That was so hilarious since I wasn't expecting that too. Here Rei was covering her neck and that bird just ate her. LMAO

Hella sick! I'm still wondering why they don't just send more Alone to destroy that engine, but the next battle is sure gonna be great to watch.

I can only imagine, after the crow is destroyed, we'll see some naked Rei mysteriously surviving "lunch" and just laying there. LOL

Time for Akane to go full Shinji "Give Rei (lol) back!"

I do hope that Kuroki will get extracted from that crow and we get our AkanexKuroki dokkingu scene, I've been waiting for that one scene the whole time. Nice ep 4/5.

That bird gives me a Kyubey feel. I always felt this show was a little like Madoka but thankfully not as melancholy.

I can't wait until he gets what he deserves, preferably through the power of friendship and light yuri undertones : )

Naw, i'm predicting some slow-motion floating/falling, mid-air, sparkily clothing disintegration after the crow gets epically blown to pieces.

Of course followed by grabbing, blushing, and happy tears. Yay!!!

LOL. Seconded.

This was the most stupid episode from beginning to end. I suppose if your anime has the smartest and most listened to character be a stuffed animal, it doesn't bode well, but I hoped for more.
If you aren't watching Zetsuen no Tempest (Civilization Blaster), you should be. Brilliant writing with legit plot twists.

''Just imagine:

Rei's world and the current world were all just universes that branched off Evangelion's universe. In these sets of parallel worlds, the human instrumentality project was never invented and thus Nerv was never created. However, even though Nerv didn't exist, the grandpa managed to discover one of the angels, Lilith, and somehow found a way to use it as energy for the incarnate system.

That raven is actually the vessel that holds the soul for Adam, and it's goal is too reach the incarnate engine so it can find a way to end life as we know it. It's only using the "superiors" as a way to scare the humans.

In Rei's world, the raven actually succeeded. However, for whatever reason or simply an act of pity, it decided to give Rei a chance in the current world. All though she isn't truly needed, all the raven wants out of Rei is to strengthen the alones to finish the job faster. The raven had no intentions to revive her world but simply kill the current one as well.

The end of the series is the beginning of the third impact and each character getting mind fucked by tomatoes.''

I know anime has it's own style- but seriously, when something says

"I am the villain, the harbinger of doom, the thumb on the scale to decide your fate and I will insure your destruction."
(or some such- I'm paraphrasing)

Why doesn't everyone just look at each other, shrug their shoulders, and blast it away? I mean- even the execution happy general should say 'I can shoot a bird- Hell yeah- I got this...'

And Rei, who just had revealed both the killer of her parents/world and the string puller of her puppetlike manipulation-- all she does is drop to her knees? No rage or vengeance- just 'I'll sit here stupid-like'. Yeah, she's a bit shocked. Ok, but seriously? Just sit there and be used again?
Anyway- this...

'Oh, it's your turn? You want to monologue and upgrade? Ok, you do that- I think I can handle it.
How much time do you need? Never mind- I'll wait. I'll just, uh- I'll pretend to be stunned or something...'

kind of crap is why anime is laughed at... I mean- you're a writer-- take a second, have your villain put up a barrier. Freeze everyone. Phase shift. Something. Just don't prove _all_ your heroes can be in one room and completely impotent- er incompetent? ineffective? whatever...

but that 'Big Gulp' sh!t was kinda funny... I don't know if they wanted to be laughed at there or really have no clue. It's kind of sad actually.
Ah well. Finale coming. I do seriously wonder how they're going to wrap this up. I mean- how do you outdo yourself after that?

I mean- that was the most epic we're gonna see right there, right?

"i want to get even closer to you. because when i met you for the first time, i got a tingling feeling!"
so apparently that's akane's coming-out.

another great scene was when the military wanted to execute rei and the professor just said "do none of you know the meaning of friendship?" and the next scene started with him saying "human require water, air, light and friendship in order to survive."
i guess someone has seen too many anime. goddamnit, old man! you can't solve every problem with the power of friendship, for god's sake. (okay, we all know that this is how the show will probably end, but shh.)

I finally understand why Akane has Kamina glasses.

TTGL spoilers below.

Has to be connected. Total nod to Gurren Lagann.


A couple of things:

1. I think that "Manifestor Engine" is a misleading translation. If I am correct (symbv? You out there), they say 次元エンジン (Jigen Enjin), which is more like "Dimensional Engine." Makes the point about Rei being from a "different world" (or maybe a different dimension) make more sense, I think. At least a little.

2. A question for Japanese speakers - so Akane - Aka (red). Aoi - Aoi (blue), Kuroki Rei - Kuro (black), and Momo - Momoiro (Pink). What about Wakaba and Himawari? I know green is Midori and Yellow is Kiiroi, but is there some kind of pun or something that I just don't know about?

Imagine the news papers saying fourteen your old girl biggest treat to Humanity it would be the biggest joke since they mentioned that the EU would get a Nobel price.
In Anime everything is possible.

Off topic, but I (still) couldn't believe that actually happened - it's like they're tempting fate to repeat history from 1920s onward.

So I guess Himawari is "Sunflower" and Wakaba (若葉) is like fresh leaves, so that also plays into the whole colors/names thing. Nice.

yep, this was painful to watch. The girls breaking in a highly security facility run by their allies, attacking personnel who ware just doing their job, destroying highly expensive equipment. In real life this stupid girls should be getting court martial for acts for acts of treason....and all that just so convince the biggest and dumbest hypocrite I've seen in a while (rei) that they didn't lied to her when she was clearly responsible of helping the alones destroy the world and kill everyone....this series was fine with me because it was fun and stuff....but this last two episodes and their forced drama just ruined it for me....till girl-eating crow came ^_^.

That ending song... so unfitting it's funny.
I have to say, I really was not a fan of this show at the beginning, but it's really grown on me. Hopefully we will get a satisfying ending.
