THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Fight, fight, fight!

I do admit that was some intense action this finale. For a finale though, this sure had a lot of action. Ofc, I was cheering for Team Rabbits. Yay Izuru is alive! I'm also glad they played OP song 1 (one of my favorites) again at the ending. :3

Izuru managed to survive the death flags looming over him. Happy he made it nonetheless.

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.

Izuru vs Jiart Round 2 was as great visual mecha porn as it gets. When Izuru started attacking with his wings, I couldn't help but laugh

As for the show as a whole, it was consistently good(beginning episodes were a little shaky putting it nicely) but never resonated with me enough to make it truly memorable from similar kin and be "great".

If COSPA decides to fund a Season 2, maybe it will.... Maybe Asagi can get put to use all of the character development they kept setting up but didn't get to execute

So in the end it was only luckless team Doberman that had to die? Well colour me surprised, I was sure that the Commander and Teoria would sacrifice themselves for their "children", but the death flags were wrong. 7/10 for the sound-track and the animation, but I'll try to forget just how badly they missed making me feel anything for any of the main characters except Kei and Asagi (and in his case it's simply sympathy for having to be the "responsible" older brother). I can believe that the fail five were conceived in a test tube--there just seemed to be something mechanical and artificial about all the interactions between the allegedly human characters in this.

The battle scenes are great as usual, lots of explosions. But yeah the ending was kind of just like, oh okay they destroyed the gate without any of the main characters dying, yay. If there's a second season, I hope they will have a better plot as more character development with certain characters.

Bad ass last episode. Inzuru and Jiato fighting till the end. When those two go at it, they go at it. Happy to see that Theoria saved Simon. You just know Inzuru was like "you just lost this hunt... Bitch (grin)." Yes the humans WON!

Overall the series was pretty okay. Wish they had a little more back story to the characters. If they make a season two. Wish I hope they do. It will probably be about how everybody deals with the aftermath of the war. Mostly Inzuru and that's where we probably see more of the character development. Anyway great last episode.

Overall 7/10 imo.

when jiart started making those round pink beams i couldnt help but say is goku fighting freezea again? it was good series but i wanted their to be more development with the battles and the romance too i know if this does get a second season izuru is going to end up with the princess and his brother going to end up with Kei Kugimiya. because he has shown intrest in the princess but has no real affection for kei and i think oni san does like her.

Woo that was some great robot porn. This was a nice finally, i enjoyed it. If there were to be another season which i would look forward to, i would want some more character development as others have said. Other than that this was quite fun to watch, the action was always great and i was never not entertained. Not sure what to grade this yet, either going to be a 7 or 8.

The ending was pretty good, the show overall was also good except the beginning. Overall an 8/10 but since i enjoyed the majority of it, rewatching countless mecha battle 9/10.

I'm pretty sure the princess and captain simon are together. Princess Theoria was called Juria by the captain.

him calling her by her name means nothing they where in the heat of battle and if she was with him she wouldnt have invited izuru to a date which probably doesnt count as one cus he invited his brother because he was so nervous so yea they arent an item at least not untill i see some real concrete evidence. no woman would ask another man out on a date unless she plan on cheating on her bf or she doesnt have a bf those are the only 2 options.and the princess and izuru have history together which was never cleared up.

Izuru is her son. Isn't normal for mother and son to go to a restaurant together. She even allowed Asagi to stay since Asgai is Izuru's older brother.

I am assuming she is with Smon because:
Izuru father is Simon, and mother is Theoria.
Simon called her Juria... She been called the princess and Theoria for the entire 24 episodes but Simon calls her Juria... it kinda implied that the two are together.

Best Mecha I've seen in a long time. I loved how the characters developed and became heroes, the fights were really well done.

Please let there be a season 2!!

That was a wonderful series. I enjoyed it all the way through.

Its not too often anyway that anime can write a satisfying ending but MJP pulled it off. I would love a S2 in the future if the producers decide on one!

Jiart Q.Q

Aside from the protagonists, I loved that guy. Great main antagonist.

They should have an S2 right? No way would they leave that many things untied. I mean, even IS got a second season, and they could have ended it! And for some reason, I'm expecting Izuru to be in a hospital bed for at least the first 3 episodes of S2.

(I sorta wanted to see Izuru die and have him be forever remembered as a hero...)

Keeping in mind what Jiart said at the end, and the fact that Izuru survived the explosion, I doubt it.

8/10

I enjoyed it all the way through. Some parts were annoying *cough* Tamaki *cough* but the best parts of the anime were 9s. Lots of room for growth in another season, I hope it happens.

Last episode.... was damn satisfying. Izuru vs Jiart keeps me entertained and the battle rages on. they're mecha power up suits were so colorful btw. I was relieved when they found Izuru, who won against Jiart in the end.

Even though I'm not a fan of a mecha series, this is like the best action mecha I've seen for a long time. Hoping for a second season of this. Giving this a 9/10.

The characters grew into me, the action was the best, the animation improve throughout the season, and the soundtrack was good, though the animation is still kind of a bit dull and story is less satisfying.

If anyone wants to know/find the insert song at the start of the episode, it is sonogyaku by Chiaki Ishikawa. You can buy it on amazon. If you want to be a criminal it will take you forever to find it. Finally found it on the naver website.

I love this anime to death! I desperately want a 2nd season. I expected a lot of predictions to be right, but they all went overboard, which made me feel good. I'm a die-hard for mecha anime, and this is one of the best as of late, and I can't have enough!

I swear I saw SEED mode a couple of times. I loved how Izuru's Red 5 transformed!(F FRAME CHANGE!) I love the fight scenes as well. And even though there were times like fighting with wings felt stupid, I still love it! Though the all happy ending didn't feel great now, it still felt good at the moment. There so much still to build on, and if they can improve on this, a whole lot more, this could easily overpower every other mecha anime I've seen.

I guess I'm part of the minority. As much as I want to enjoy the show, I couldn't enjoy it more than just the fighting scenes. I didn't really like the animation with the exception of the action scenes. the story was meh... there's still a lot of questions unanswered, undeveloped characters, and gosh could I not bring myself to like Tamaki at all from start to finish. most annoying character on the show.

Asagi has this ulcer thing going on from episode 1 and we still didn't get any explanation why. If they're really going for a season 2, I thought "temporarily" killing Izuru and have him come back somewhere on season 2, working along with Jiart would have been a better direction but they decided to go with the cliche ending by abusing the convenient JURIA system.

a 4/10 for me. this show is overrated (current rate 7.34). I expect it to go down

If they make a season 2, I hope Jiart isn't really dead. I'd love to see the mechas get some cool upgrades and more character development!!!

I really thought they were going to kill Izuru off! His fight was really awesome, also really enjoyed the song they played in the beginning and then bringing back the first opening again, which I really loved, but also reminds me of team doberman getting killed (cries)

Dude Teoria and Simon are the Gene doners of Asagi and Izuru, Simon told Asagi this in the episode where Izuru was hospitalized. So them getting together would be gross :/

Not a great show by any means, but this was a really awesome episode. The pacing was good and the theme was used at just the right time, making it a pretty powerful moment. 6.5/10 for the series, but 8.5/10 for the episode.

The show's faults were easily overshadowed by its charm and fantastic mecha designs and action. I really fell in love with this one and I really hope they do a second season. They certainly left an opening for an interesting continuation of the story, now that the Wulgaru found a species worthy of their attention.

8/10

Pretty decent series. Weak start but it kept improving from there on.

Definitely well choreographed battles. Despite the cliche cast of characters, they were actually likeable in the long run.

Will definitely watch the second season if it comes out.

Simon not being dead was kind of wishy-washy IMO. Would have gone out much more dramatically if he died. Yeah I'm a tragedy fan.

Xenoi said:
I'm pretty sure the princess and captain simon are together. Princess Theoria was called Juria by the captain.

How do we know he wasn't just talking to himself, to a possibly dead Julia, and Theoria was just listening in and spoke because she was at the time still, carrying him back? The way he spoke made me think he wanted to die, perhaps to be with (dead) Julia, but her invention of the ASHM mechs, and possibly personality, strove for the (instinctual) survival of humanity...which includes himself. Simon had no issue attempting to sacrifice his own life, but the persuasion Theoria used was most likely what I just mentioned.

It also doesn't make any sense that Theoria would have the knowledge of rocket science and engineering to reverse engineer her mech for the ASHM units. You don't see too many military fighter pilots design/make their own planes do you?. She's a sheltered princess on top of that, with space combat experience being the minimum of requirements considering her race thrives off of intergalactic war...sort of how it isn't uncommon for British Royalty to join their army...but again, not in something like engineering/weapons manufacturing. I know I'm trying to make sense of real-world examples with fiction, but nonetheless, my bet is that Theoria only collaborated with Julia, giving blood samples and whatnot...because after all, she can't give birth to the ENTIRE ACADEMY of next-gen children that shares her genes for interstellar living. Think of it as test-tube baby clones from A Certain Scientific Railgun, where they were born in pods, and simply rapidly aged to an optimal age with drugs: not too young that they take too long to train, but not too old that they can't be brainwashed/memory-wiped...something repeatedly mentioned throughout the show.

The first part is a fact. As for hooking up with someone who shares the same genes as you...that depends on how much they share. Heck, your cab-driver you hail could be related to you by 5th cousins for all you know. The world is just one big melting pot I say (example stolen from Person of Interest). Marrying your siblings may be illegal, but direct or distant cousins is fair-game in many parts of the world, including parts of North America. And for you religious folk; if you believe Adam and Eve was real, oh boy...you must be perfectly fine with incest, seeing as your partner shares the same blood as you, or simply have conflicting views and refuse to see things for what they are. So in the end, I don't see the issue with it, after taking in every consideration of course.

First half of the naime was very slow 6.5 for me but the second half man so many great fights, bet animated mecha fights I have ever seen the second half is easily a 8.5-9. If they have a second season and keep the pacing of the second half of the first that would be amazing.

Beautiful finale with lots of action scenes, although I wished for some cheesy ending after the operation. :) 8/10

Anyways, I thought it was explained in the earlier episodes that the developer for JULIA-SYSTEM was dead after she finished the system? I just can't remember which episode was it.

7/10 and I think best mecha series this year (so far) - fact that only one that I remember were Valvrave and Garganita which were rather horrible, if good looking ones.

decent characters, nice looking battles was something to look forward to. Sure it was easy to see earlier all those plot-twists and solutions but can't complain here.

Would be nice to have second season.

Damn EPIC!!

No one dying may annoy some people but I didn't mind at all.

Jiart vs Izuru was DAMN AMAZING! And Izuru's transformations (Berserk and Hero) were both BA!

Loved the animation and the build up and everything.

I still remember when 3 mechas started last season (Suisei, Valvrave and this) everyone was saying this is the worse of them but personally I think I liked this the most :D

S2 plzzz ^^
