He's a manipulative bastard all right.

From his dialogue with Ange, it really seems that his main motivation is that he's immortal and bored.

See, he's the only happy La Flaga "creepy brother-uncle".

One thing that stumps me is that if Alektra/Jill hates Embryo so much now, she whispers "Sorry, Embryo-sama" in her dreams. Do like Elsa and let it go! :mrgreen:

Looks like this episode puts to rest any impressions that Ange's gone soft.

Asides from taking down Ange with the tranquilizer, Mahou Shojou Pretty Salian just can't catch a break.

So, I'm not sure if I was a bit slow, but I finally figured out who the other 2 pilots that weren't Ersha and Chris were.

They're two of these spare pilots from a few episodes back: http://i.imgur.com/9y3bNNL.png

Interesting tidbit from the Fukuda Q&A:

Q: What was your reaction when you were first approached for this project?
A: Cross Ange was one of my suggestions when SEED Destiny finished and when they wouldn't let me do a movie, it took a while but they accepted it back in December 2012

(So I guess that means the SEED movie is officially canned?)

I certainly hope so. :D

That series needs a complete reboot (hopefully without Fukuda and Morosawa behind it) before a movie can even be considered. And even if there was a movie, I bet it would just be a rip-off of Char's Counterattack (possibly starring Talia's orphaned son :P).

Then it will be another Astray, and I'm at least a little tired with seeing Gai, Lowe and Prayer.

I never thought i'd be saying this but Sylvia needs to die. She's beyond redeemable at this stage with so few episodes left to change her attitude. Kinda sucks since I expected a happy reunion with her and Ange by the end of the series.

Nice to see Jill admit she was wrong in her thinking and relinquish authority to Hilda who is in a better mind frame. Also, Rosalie's tearful longing for Chris was a very touching scene.

So just caught up to the latest episode after watching them in successions from episode three. Really enjoying this series, probably one of my favorites recently and it certainly surpassed my expectations of it. Enjoying and getting attached to most of the cast and some of the plot developments. Hopeful that they don't ruin the final arc ending somehow but I'm feeling optimistic so far. Like the battles, mecha designs and the character developments.

I can see Salia getting the hostage treatment given what happened to her in the latest episode. Erse and Chris will probably be redeemed/rescued somehow in the next few episodes while the other two more misc. Diamond Knights probably won't make it.

Uh, She's been confirmed straight since forever ago. She's been wanting Tusk's Tusk since the start. I'm probably the biggest Nanoha fan here and even I think the hole "NanoFate" thing being carried into this unrelated franchise by fans was ultimately dumb for them to get their hopes up. (Though as a fan, I honestly think the worst part of said Nanoha franchise are the fans themselves, especially the dilusional ones who take the series too seriously.)

They share some VAs, not that rare of an occurance. But the difference between their roles in Nanoha and in Cross Ange is that Nanoha and Fate were the main characters. Hilda, is nothing but a side character. And a lesser one at that. As it is, Saleko, the maid, and others are all more important then Hilda.

It's been nice knowing you, Momoka and Tusk.

While there is a chance that they'll be back (via reset Button/new happy-ending universe/whatever) it's nice to see how they exit the stage for now and open up Ange for some late-game angst.

Some notes:
-that arcade game Hilda and Rosalie are playing (VVV's Haruto vs Bernie with vampire-bite finisher from the former) made me do a double-take.
-it was kinda stupid for them not to do a Yoda and take the Vilkiss out of the river, though it's just me.
-we have another "who-made-the-loli-killing-shot" scenario here straight out of Destiny; but seeing it is the Ragnamail-using side that uses the fatal green beams...
Well, I guess I'm a nobody...

>Implying Tusk and Momoka are dead

You mean in a show where 90% of the people who die come back to life 10 minutes later? If anything this show WILL end with a Reset ending.

And yeah, the game was El Elf vs Haruto.

Also, What.The.**** happened to the animation. It was horrible this episode. Not only that but all the characters were drawn entirely off key.
