Takaki makes it out alive but Aston sacrificed himself for him. really emotional moment seeing the flashbacks of his growth from Human Debris to his friendship with Takaki.
Hush finally gets some Mobile Suit action but isn't prepared for the life and death action showing how different of mindsets Mika has to everyone else. seeing Barbatos jump in for McGillis was great as always for a Barbatos entrance.
pretty anti-climatic with Gallan self-destructing his Mobile Suit in front of Akihiro mostly because Akihiro took that explosion with little to no damage. I guess it was more fodder for the Lafter x Akihiro shippers?
I wish I’d never met you. Human Debris can’t survive if they have feelings. If you mourned a friend’s death, you’d be crushed. We survived by killing our own souls. But… But… I really wish… I’d never met you. Because I don’t want to lose such a life now that I have to die.
Since last episode was the climax, this one is mellow and somber and a bit of preparation once Orga was given a decision to take McGillis offer to have Tekkadan as king as Mars. Kudelia and the other woman were cautious.
There were ship tease of Lafter who is worried about Akihiro and then Naze.
Takaki quit Tekkadan to take care of his sister, didn't want to risk his life and leave Fuka alone.
Robot man talks about an officer fighting for his superior to repay them. He sounds like Eins.
The infighting within Gjallarhorn and Teiwaz continues with Jasley leaking information and Iok confronting McGillis. So the dramatic game-changing ending was all due to a misunderstanding? What other motivation would McGillis have to check out the Mobile Armor?
Sounds like Shino and Zack had a fun time at the club. I how wasted Shino was to do something so crazy that he wants no one to know. I guess we'll never know lol.
More politics and lots of dialogue. Merribit and the mechanic guy are revealed to be dating much to Chad's dismay. Hush is pretty attached to Minazuki.
Got to see more new Gundam frames for Tekkadan. Speaking of new mechs, got to see the masked man's Vida mech in action. He's definitely Galileo since Eins was more direct and not so floaty in his fighting. This guy fights with grace.
kind of anti-climatic stuff going on with the Mobile Armor's destruction. at least Julietta is there to bring Iok down some. there was some interesting stuff with the Mobile Armor being an angel-like figure and the Gundam Frames being named after demons. Gaelio/Ein (maybe) gets in McGillis' way.
This is an interesting turn since I never seen this in Gundam (well I haven;'t seen all the Gundam shows only Wing and G) Oh it brings back memories of G. We are not fighting humans. We are fighting something machine, automated like from Gundam G.
I kind of like this element. Mobile Armor brought some terrifying presence with its story and its looks.
Taka: My favorite episode in Samurai Champloo was probably Ep 22.

Dream: The one with zombies excavating for treasure? Think that one's the most out there of episodes in the series. Mine's probably the one involving Mugen busting a counterfeit coin ring while trying to get nookie from a ninja girl disguised as a prostitute.

Master Menos: Updates complete. As for a life update, I'm quitting my fast food job soon. Was good for my very first job, but things are getting FAR too chaotic for my tastes.
Feb 6, 2020 22:06:13 GMT
Dream: Far as job front goes on my end, still waiting on projects to start up with my freelance job. Beyond that, nothing new for other work in my search.
Feb 6, 2020 22:42:02 GMT
Dream: Just completed Spice and Wolf. Plan to work on a review for it sometime tomorrow. Too late to have any inhibition to get one done from my end.
Feb 7, 2020 3:17:29 GMT
Dream: Last anime I will be covering is Gankutsuou: Count of Monte Cristo. Will start watching it tomorrow. Not sure how much longer I can keep myself up at this point.
Feb 7, 2020 5:19:21 GMT
Taka: Depending on my energy, I can watched up to 2 AM. Usually with work, I fall asleep on anime series that don't have a lot of action.
Feb 9, 2020 3:24:18 GMT
Master Menos: Finally got out of the fast food job. It was a graceful exit, but to be honest, I'll miss some of those guys. Got a sprained ankle from it since September, so I'll finally focus on healing that back at the family home.

HungryWorld: Well if anyone remembers what happened to Pingu in the City, with it being joke 10/10 scored on MAL just to get it into the top 10 anime... well now is Ishuzoku Reviewers' turn. Seems that in response to Funimation's cancel people boosted the score hard.
Feb 11, 2020 2:11:38 GMT
Taka: What? That sounds so weird.
Feb 11, 2020 5:36:23 GMT
Master Menos: It's damn awesome to be honest. It shot to 1st Place!
Feb 11, 2020 6:31:08 GMT
Dream: On the subject of MAL, it looks like the admin are planning to tweak their scoring system for titles to reduce the likelihood of voters artificially inflating the ranking of certain titles.

Master Menos: My V-Day present will be belated this year because I "Had some trouble with ol' Johnny." (That's your hint.)
Feb 15, 2020 4:17:13 GMT
Dream: The joys of adulthood. Joking aside, plan to at least attempt to wrap up Gankutsuou sometime early to mid next week so I can get done with my Funi voted titles. Afterward, not doing any more voting for a while considering how long this had been taking.
Feb 15, 2020 16:50:30 GMT
Dream: Done with Gankutsuou. Will be working to get a review up for it by sometime tonight.
