Well that was quick. I thought the pants guy would be a new major character, but alas, he was cut short.

They're cramming - they didn't even feature some of the Selecao or atleast..

Even the logs had been deleted? is it really possible or only on his cellphone? while other can still see no.9 previous logs

Better be a rockin' finale, this was a bit lame... introducing a really good character just to knock him off two episodes later? oh, well, the hacker always dies in movies right after revealing/solving something huge (haven't you noticed how much this director loves using western film cliches?)

good stuff though! on to the next one!

I actually liked him. His reason for never leaving the house is pretty hilarious.

And wow, the pants Saki bought him look like they were made for children.

It's great to know that Takizawa's not the real culprit behind the missle attacks.. But why does he still want to erase his memories? I guess that must be related to what Pantsu wanted to warn him about but Pantsu got himself killed during the process :(

Yes, this is what I also thought- a relief.
It's also bizarre how Pantsu was able to predict his life schedule- how he was a hero, I'm not sure (he sent the information to who? I think I missed that.) But, I was waiting for him to die after Taki was so open with him about the 12 selaccao- Pantsu knew too much. It still made me very sad.

Poor Pantsu, I was really liking the character. :(

We have 2 new Seleçao, although I can't really tell whether they are allies or X just uses the other one, their relationship looks quite one-sided.

This. Even if they were allies, X would probably get rid of him, the grey-eyed guy, first so he would be the overall winner. I'm not sure why Yuki (i think) is following orders, or why he bombed people even if he felt guilty about Pantsu.

At least now Akira can be a super ultimate hero, though I wonder if he'll have to tell Saki and her friends the truth.

Holy c rap, best episode yest. Just when pantsu was willing to go outside to help someon he got killed just like that... seriously, those guys will have it coming for them! I hope.

So Akira didn't actually set up careless monday, but made arrangements so that the area was evacuated and saved everyone, pretty good stuff and loads of information there.

I know there's a lot to be answered yet, but this one question still bothers me a great deal, why did he erase his memories? I hope it is explained soon.

R.I.P. Fatty Pantsu...but it was obvious he was going to die.

And, I severely lol'd when he pulled out the tiny gym pants, probably the funniest moment of this show so far.

It was very surreal the way he died.
He looked to be in no pain, despite the fact he was just own'd by a station wagon.
The lack of expression he made when he was hit, made it feel very awkward.

Two more eps, lets see how they finish the series, and where it goes from there.

Urahara Out!!

Panties die a hero. I knew he was going to die from the episode title (A Man Too Ephemeral - ephemeral means short-lived), but I wished a brilliant mind like that could have lived on.

it's pretty amazing how he manage to hack the phone.

no pantsu!!! :(

fucking bastards.

and yeah only 2 episodes left, i wonder if they can cram all of this??

they should have made this a 26 episodes like Ghost in the Shell Stand Alone Complex.

i fear this will be like Canaan. so much information that could be revealed if it had more episodes.

oh well can't wait to finish this up, at least there's still two movies left so that's plenty to gives us more information :)

He got out of his home first time in 2 years...and he got whacked. So, that means the information probably died with him. Also, those guys found where the NEET's were kept. So what's next?

Man, sucks for Pantsu to die like that. First time he went outside in such a long time and he gets ran over.

What a sad life :( and the way he lands in the gutter thing was even more depressing. That damn glasses guy. He felt no guilt whatsoever...X should just stop cooperating with glasses guy because in the end, there will only be one survivor (or none =_=). And we all know if they were to be the ones to survive, glasses guy would just betray X.

I have the feeling Akira could be not only supporter but also a maker of those phones - and that he maybe wanted to change something without all of this knowledge. But on the other hand, he is too young for that, so let's see how this will turn out.

My bet is that this ends with revealing infromation about attacks and all the stuff concering Akira and his loss of memory, but that the main story and confrontation with Mr. Outside will take place in other two movies.

The episode was full of tension but no surprises there - he isn't guilty of anything and also the one who knows is being disposed of as soon as it is possible.

Aww shit you could have just charged your phone and seriously though that pants is virtually impossible to fit in him.

So many questions left unanswered I hope they're going to explain it in the movie!!

Oh well I'm gonna save the last 2 episodes and the movie for tomorrow time to sleep.

Fuck. He was such a nice guy :( A true hero in his own way...
Why not Oshugi instead? >_>

Only 2 more episodes? Can they actually end it or is the movie really is a must-watch to see the ending? Seems kinda weird :S

Mmm, this got really interresting. So that military man with the help of the other guy tried to start a third WW. They seem to own the game.

We also learned that Takizawa is the one that saved people from the missile attack. He probably guessed by the other Selecao buying.

It look like his goal was to destroy other Selecao goal. Maybe he saw a threat against the NEET and exported them to save them?

Now that the EOE group are aware of that ''concentration camp'', I guess their contract will be over... The only way he can convince them is to tell the whole truth.

I still don't understand why Saki is avoiding to question Takizawa. Is she so scared to learn something awful?

That guy who did Careless Monday looks way to similar to Takazawa >.>

So he evacuated the people before the missile strikes occurred.

NOOOOOOOOOO PANTIES!!!! At least he still transferred the data, but to where?

It sucks that Pantsu met his demise as soon as he went outside , I kinda saw that coming though

So Yuuki and that other guy are behind the missile attacks, Takizawa anticipated that and gathered lots of people into a safer place? And since Takizawa intervened with their attack they want to kill him too?

My heart was RACING during the scene when Panties was scanning the data, because I knew it was moments away before those two Selecao did something to kill him. If this is a generic thriller, it does a damn good job at it!

It does a great job at being confusing, too.

PANTS!! :(
As others mentioned, he really does look similar to Akira.
Data's being transferred (hopefully to Akira or someone close to) so he can figure out what's going on.
