I think I seriously will be depressed and cry for a while after the last episode airs. There won't be something so fulfilling,fun,exciting,and erotic like Cross Ange is for a long time. Hopefully sunrise can do it once again but even better than before. I sincerely love this anime with all of my heart. I can't explain it.
It was something that came out of nowhere and I didn't expect to love. I know I'm not the only one in the threads who feels the same. Reply please.
I enjoy /v/ for shitposting
I like to come to /a/ and chat because I like it here.
All those young boys will gain such great fetishes.

Why is Ange so hot in white shirt?
I'm going to spoil the ending.
>Ersha and Vivian make up and Vivian says Ersha can join her family
>Chris and Hilda and Rosalie fight until Rosalie takes a bullet for Chris in a contrived scenario that makes Chris both realize Rosalie truly cares for her and remember that Hilda took a bullet for her as well
>Rosalie gets over Marika's death because they've been killing Dragons this whole time anyway
>Ange and Jill fight Salia and beat her up a bit, telling her she needs to make her own choices. Jill gets killed by Embryo but Salia wakes up and has a dramatic moment where she cuts her hair, then starts acting like her "true self" (pretty salian)
>Embryo turns the Manafags into an army against the invaders but Salako and Ange's songs wake them up and Embryo loses control, he begins the world destruction thing
>Embryo and Tusk have a duel while Salako and Ange free Aura, Embryo's mooks die
>Turns out Aura's going to die anyway, but Aura channels his power into Tusk who turns into a giant dragon and stops the process
>Embryo intervenes with his mecha and he and Ange have a fancy fight, but then they start singing
>Ange is joined by every other character in the show singing along and the powered-up song kills Embryo and saves the world
>Epilogue shows the manafags being completely useless and the Norma take over, telling them what to do. Holda goes back to her home and takes charge of the mana-less apple farm, but her younger sister still hates her for now. Ersha and Vivian go to the Dragon world to make a new family with Vivian's mother, and Tusk-Dragon is separated from Ange as he has to help Salako's world revive itself.
>Salia and the Mail Riders defend peace and justice in the now lawless Mana world, and Ange and Momoka open up Cafe Tusk with Ange's daughter, whom she got preggers with due to this week's sex scene
There, saved you finishing the series.
So did Fukuda forget about this plot point along with the rest of us?
only to sub maybe, but since the last couple of episodes were great they will think about doing a dub and push it on Toonami this or next year.
did they think twice on acquiring licenses when like a madman or trying to pull another shitty ADV situation again
I don't understand why everyone calls that silly flashback thing a plot point.
It was just Fukuda setting up Sala and Ange as great rivals and allies while making love to himself.
>blood pouring out of her anus
This is my fetish
I want to get the cast of Archer to do a gagdub of Cross Ange.
who knows, they might be hinting at something being wrong or just handwaving away their laziness
Cross Ange is the deagle nation of anime
Controversy breeds success and money
FCC and the advertiser ain't got shit on Cross Ange
Well the internal conflict Ange has with dealing and coming to terms with being a Norma is pretty interesting to me. Not sure why but I keep empathizing like a motherfucker with her and keep putting myself in her shoes
Horny hand on pussy, mindbreak, spanking, and then sex.
It has been a ride the last couple of weeks.
>Complete silence after the few episodes, as if the world forgot CA existed.
>Suddenly Some tumblr feminist made a mad rant about Embryo's mindraping Ange during episodes 19-20.
>Five months following "misogynist garbage"
I don't get that people.
Yeah, what's up with that? I thought we'd established that there's been three iterations of humanity - humans, dragons, mana-wielding faglords, and now, Norma. How the fuck have they seen each other through time and space? Is this going to turn into some sort of Samurai Jack ripoff with Salalalalako being lost in time and space along with Embryo, alterAnges fighting Salalako as they are unaware of their relation in the core world? Perhaps, instead of combining the worlds, Ange divides them by accident?
Fuck do I know how that would work.
It was explained in the preview, idiot.
>They would just cut that entire sequence
This is [as] they are called American Cowboys for a reason son. They have no problems with KLK nudity or being too shocking to viewers.
Most animals have sex purely for the purpose of reproduction. The claim that dolphins have sex for pleasure is true for a very specific definition of "sex for pleasure," which is copulation between the male and female of a species not for the purpose of reproduction. Most animals cannot afford to waste the energy that is put into the sexual act unless it leads to the production of offspring. For most animals, it seems that there is no biological advantage in engaging in sex when there is no possibility that their genes will be passed through the production of offspring. Therefore, Females of most animal species give off detectable signals when they are fertile: a change in appearance, a distinctive smell, specific sounds or behaviors to signal to their partner that they are fertile. If fact, most females will push their mate away or ignore him when they are not fertile.
Humans, bonobos (also known as Pygmy chimpanzees) and dolphins are a bit different in this aspect. They are all intelligent social animals, whose cooperative behavior proves to be more successful than that of the individual alone. It is probable that in these animals, the use of sex evolved beyond reproduction to serve additional social functions. IT can keep the male around the female and offspring, thus helping tend for the offspring. Sex reinforces intimate social bonds that can form larger social structures, something that may help in overall survival, group hunting defending against intruders and so on.
But there is a difference between humans and animal in this aspect though. Animals other than humans have no awareness that their sexual activities are connected with reproduction: They engage in sex because they're biologically driven to do so, and if the fulfillment of their urges produces a physical sensation we might "pleasure," it isn't the least bit affected by the possibility (or impossibility) of producing offspring.
No. The staff couldn't find a good way to explain how he survived so they didn't put anything in which is why Tusk just ignores the question. Fukuda also said that it doesn't matter how Tusk survives since there is no drama in it.
I can hear the Peter Cullen voiceover already.

Haven't you guys heard?
How did Tusk and Momoka survive?…Of course during the scenario meeting we came up with multiple ideas, but ultimately, if we write it it wouldn't be interesting at all, so we just put it all in the episode preview. Tusk used the Body Replacement Technique (Kawarimi no Jutsu) and an anti-explosive cloak using a fire jutsu (Katon no Jutsu). Momoka used a frying pan and mana to slow her fall.
Tusk knew where Ange's destination was, so he rendezvoused with Momoka who was stuck in a tree. And they came back to the island on a fishing boat…the end. The director said "Eh? Is this really ok?", and did oppose this idea, but Higuchi-san, the producers, and I agreed on this development.
The highlight of this episode is Ange's change of awareness and determination. We've been watching her change since episode one. So Tusk being alive is very important and how he managed to survive is not. There is no drama in that.
They'll use that one for the shorter commercials once they have the voice acting done.

Cross Ange has huge potential
with HiME making it's fathomable return this year. Ange future in life looks better than ever.
As if this fanbase isn't already a laughing stock
Let's be real here, Zola was a canon pedophile rapist, she absolutely molested every single girl in first squad, the reason Hilda, Chris and Rosalie joined her harem is because they're all weak people looking for protection, Ersha was a bit older and more mature, Salia had her fixation on Alektra (plus she's mega straight) and Vivian is a too carefree to give a damn.
All the DRAGON girls understand that repopulating their species is extremely important so Salamanko and her cronies almost certainly took the huge DRAGON cock at some point considering they're fertile young women of breeding age.
Embryo is an established pervert womanizer who just wants to create a world of waifus, all the girls under his control would listen to anything he told them to do, he gave them all the D
Ange got deflowered by Tusk, Jill got raped by Embryo and Riza had her way with Julio.
The only girls in this show with intact hymens are Momoka, Sylvia and Emma (eternal christmas cake.) And maybe Maggie but who gives a shit about her.
Ange is just too sexual.
How can we contain such magnificence?
Josh Grelle as Tusk would be suitable or Eric Scott Kimerer to voice the role
Seraphim Digital will dub or gives it Bang Zoom or NYAV post to do Cross Ange
He still voices commercials on [as] regularly and it's possible
Really? It's was the hottest thing about the show.
TO PURIFY THE WORLD OF /u/
CROSS ANGE IS A HET CRUSADE
Chris, Hilda and Rosalie were living with Zola since they were little, now why would she let them do that?
inb4 spinoff manga about the female pervert and her three lolis getting into completely innocent hijinks
Zola, Coco and Miranda died so the director could set up an atmosphere that made viewers think anybody in the cast could die!
However that was false because it's clear nobody else in the main cast will die.
It's fine to like Zola, but the few episodes she existed in the show pretty much everything she did involved molesting, raping and having sex with girls.
How the fuck can you possibly think she didn't touch every single girl there at some point?
Given how Zola was perfectly fine with sexually assaulting someone and she even touched Coco, a 12 years old girl, you can't say she was a good person, regardless of what Jill said (and how do we know that wasn't bullshit Jill came up with to make Ange feel guilty?).
>IMPLYING ITS OVER
CHRIS HAS DONE SOME BAD SHIT
ANOTHER /u/ ABOUT TO GET BLOWN OUT (EVEN THOUGH EMBRYO DICKS HER ON THE REG IN HIS VIDYA DEN)
>How the fuck can you possibly think she didn't touch every single girl there at some point?
Because she might not have. Plus I'm pretty sure the debate is "is she a pedo?", not rapist. Can you guys pay attention?
Everyone from the original first squad will survive. Why do you think they introduced those cannon fodder girls in both sides out of nowhere?
That said, I don't understand why so many of you are obsessed with main characters dying left and right. What's the point on that?
THEY DIDNT KNOW IT AT THE TIME
CHRIS HAD FULL KNOWLEDGE WHAT SHES SHOOTING AT, AND SHE DID IT ANYWAY
It's pretty obvious it was bullshit. Zola surviving that long wouldn't make any sense story-wise. Many of the conflicts during the first half came from the first squad's inability to work together only to fall apart thanks to Ange and Hilda's escape along with Salia's own insecurities as captain and leader.
>Zola is not a pedo
Here's proof she molested young girls
>That doesn't count, not a pedo
She also had Rosalie, Chris and Hilda around when they were lolis, here's an image of them in her room
>That doesn't mean anything, not a pedo
Come on anon, this is embarrassing.
Judging by the pictures on the bulletin board, she was very kind to them as children and wasn't sexual until they hit puberty and their affection to her combined with their new hormones.
Don't forget how Chris, Hilda and Rosalie are 16 and Zola was 29. Even if she wasn't a pedo, she still was an adult using a position of power to have sex with minors.
It's kinda creepy.
Oh no, she knows every single sexual fetish Tusk has.
But you're the one grasping for straws, do you really need a signed picture of Zola admitting she is a pedo for you to understand? There's such a thing as subtlety in story telling, and this isn't even subtle, the show BLATANTLY tells you she felt up 12 year old girls.
Maybe you're confused and think that by being a pedo she only liked young girls, obviously she liked all girls.
>Instead of the Ange we got, we could get one of those useless heroes who can't get things done even with power-ups, chosen one bullshit and legions of friends saving their ass.
Yeah, it's true that she's saved all the time by Villkiss and Tusk and her plot armor is ridiculous, but at least she started and accomplished many things by herself.
SUNRISE MAY NEED TO GIVE /u/ AT LEAST THEIR ROSACHRI/CHRIROSA
OR THEY'LL REALLY GET RAZORS IN THE MAIL, CARTONS OF LADYBICS
BUT ITS STILL OPEN SEASON ON CHRIS, SHE'S EARNED THAT FLAG
They forgave Ange for killing Coco, Miranda, Zola and god knows how many DRAGON girls. I'm sure they can forgive Chris for what she did.
>inb4 it was an accident.
>inb4 she didn't know those DRAGONs were humans
Unwillingly or not she still killed them.
How is it ntr if you're fucking her the same time as him?
Gay sure, a little, but it's worth it if the cockpit in her mouth means you don't have to hear that squealing every jap chick does in porn.
INTENT MEANS EVERYTHING
WHAT ANGE DID WOULD BE MANSLAUGHTER IN COURT, WHAT CHRIS DID WAS MURDER
AT LEAST ERSHA HAD A GOOD REASON TO SWITCH SIDES, CHRIS IS JUST A BETA WEAK SHIT WHO WANTS THE VIDYA E, SIMILAR TO SALIA BUT SALIA STILL HAS MORALS ABOUT KILLING
>ERSHA HAD A GOOD REASON TO SWITCH SIDES
What? She had the dumbest reason. Salia and Chris at least had animosity towards other members in the squad so it makes some sense that they would betray them.
Ersha liked everyone and they were her buds, she completely gave that up and had absolutely no problem killing them for some fucking kids that weren't even hers. And it's not like she had any other motives, she literally whored herself out and betrayed all her friends for some kids, the moment they were killed (again) she fucked off back to Aurora. Fuck her.
CUCKPOST OF THE YEAR
/u/ IS LITERALLY THIS BAD
>YFW THE JAPS WATCHED JESUS WIN THE ANGEB OWL
KISSU HEARD AROUND THE WORLD
I don't know.
I don't want the straight Cross Anges to get men from the mana world.
Those men don't deserve them; maybe Aura can work his magic and allow some DRAGON men to return to their human forms. That would be acceptable.
She's my favorite character in the show. If they kill her off without giving her some kind of redemption/happy end I will be livid.
Now I'm torn between wanting to see a lesbian ending where Ersha and Vivan's mom hooking up to raise Vivian as their daughter, and wanting to see an ending where Ersha get pregnant and has kids of her own.
You don't think in a rational way when you watch a bunch of little girls dying as horribly as they did.
Also, she didn't deserted Embryo because he refused to revive the lolis; she deserted when she realized Embryo never genuinely cared about those girls and only used them as a tool to control her.
Jill specifically chose to throw Ange out there without her even knowing that a war was taking place. Literally every character is a pawn in Jill's game of using Ange to break her dependency on Embryo.
Rosalie will die saving Chris's life
Chris will lose her shit
she will kamakaze into the tower, destroying it
mfw Chris was the savior of the worlds
I expect Salia to be the big bad with Chris as her muscle
Hilda becoming a couple with Rosalie, only to be killed by Chris. Rosalie would later go berserk and kill Chris 4 episodes into the show.
Ersha finally having children of her own, only to be killed off, which makes Ersha turn evil.
I started watching this purely and only for how much of shit storm it would be. I wanted to see Ange suffer and get her ass handed even more... but somehow, just somehow, i learned the meaning of fun watching this show.
i know its a dumb show, but i legitimately enjoy it. i look forward to it I'm not the only anon who thinks like that.if that don't mean anything, well i don't know what does.
Cross Ange was a good anime in my book and ill be sad when its gone.
all Ange x whoever ships are acceptable save for
embryo and Salia
ERSHA IS A SIMPLE GIRL BLINDED BY HER ARA ARA
SHE WAS SQUAD MOM THE WHOLE TIME ON ARZENAL AND ITS BECOME HER IDENTITY, IT ALSO TAPS INTO THE SUBLOGICAL PROTECTIVE MOTHERLY INSTINCT WHICH IS ANOTHER NATURALISTIC THEME, SUCH AS GIRLS CRAVING THE D (AS JESUS INTENDED)
ERSHA'S REASON IS MUCH BETTER THAN CHRIS GOING HARDCORE MURDER RAMPAGE JUST TO SHOW LOYALTY FOR HER PLAYSTATION BF
WHOS ANGRY, CROSS ANGE IS TOTAL HET VICTORY
THESE POSTS ARE THE BUTTHURT >>122316237
The adventures of Ange and co. exploring both the old and new earth while dealing with all kind of problems born from the disappearance of the light of mana, from road bandits to renegade DRAGON clans.
Halfway through the show they introduce a group of mana humans who blame the norma and the DRAGONs for the destruction of the light of mana and start a war to exterminate them using old weapons savaged from a pre-WWVII bunker who serve as the main antagonist for the remainder of the series. They're secretly controlled by a cabal of old men who worshipped Embryo as a god and want to avenge him.
Even when Salia found redemption and lives peacefully with a good man who loves her as much as Tusk loves Ange, she's still bullied.
I liked flawed characters who are kinda deep.
Salia isn't just a "jealous traitorous whore" like so many people in these threads say she is. She has completely understandable motives and an actual character arc. She's the antithesis of Ange, while Ange has had some bad shit happen to her, it all works out in the end, she gets what she wants and she's fairly confident, loved and has people helping her. Contrast with with Salia, who's been used and abused her whole life, has incredible self esteem/dependency issues and is pretty much alone.
I think her finally figuring out that she needs to be independent and not rely on other people would be a great conclusion to her character. If they just kill her off unceremoniously, then the entire point of her character would have just been to make Ange look better and that's fucking stupid considering she's probably gotten the second or third most screen time and development in the entire show.
>Tusk put his seeds into Ange
>She willingly did it
>They held hands
>she's probably gotten the second or third most screen time and development in the entire show.
That's why I'm sure she's going to be redeemed and will survive the whole ordeal.
She's the second protagonist.
Chris was beloved at first because she had a cute character design and seemed to be a shy beta girl.
Then we started getting glimpses of her angry side but it was still kinda cute and understandable. Then she betrayed everyone and her fans started to dissipate, then she went full edgelord, killed Marika and is now just an angry little bitch.
How puffy is Ange's pussy?
Looked trashy to me.
>shy beta girl
Forgettable bully sidekick #2 until her mental issues started kicking in and she became unlikeable individual #1.
I thought she was kind of cute during festa, though.
I didn't find Chris being malicious enough to kill someone in cool blood surprising. I always though something was really wrong with her, especially given her shy personality.
I still feel bad for that Chrisfag that spammed her in these threads for months saying that "she won't die" then later "won't be rekilled or unresurrected."
Of all the girls in the show to waifu, he picked the worst one. Even Saliafags are better off.
The guy straight up promised right here.
Tusk is a man of his word.
I don't think it was surprising at all, it was actually foreshadowed well enough when Hilda ran away and her whole personality shifted. At that point we all knew she wasn't the cute little beta we pegged her as. Most of us just didn't assume it would lead to her going full on Coldsteel.
>If they just kill her off unceremoniously, the entire point of her character would have just been to make Ange look better and that's fucking stupid
Congratulations anon, you just realized that every secondary character in anime exists to make the protagonist look better.
There's "make the protagonist look better" and then there's the shit they're pulling with Salia. The amount of time and effort they're devoting to make Salia look worse than Ange in every possible way is mind boggling, no doubt some kind of record.
I feel really bad for Rosalie. She genuinely loved Chris only to find how Chris always hated her.
And that's why RosaChris is unsalvageable: without requited love there is nothing to save.
If they truly loved each other, they would be able to work out Chris' little knife trick.
Why does Salia have pants on under her jacket in this scene, but when Embryo is spanking her it's thigh highs? Did they really change the design of the uniform just to make her look sluttier?
What the fuck will you guys even watch after Cross Ange finishes airing?
>tfw will be watching stuff this upcoming season but it just won't be the same love as I have for Cross Ange
Not even Gintama can do it for me. Sunrise broke me.
After a bit of consideration, I'm going to have to go with Chris. Sylvia is just an indoctrinated cunt that clings to whoever has the most power, whereas Chris is older and aware of that.
Both would be satisfying to see killed after their illusion of strength/control is shattered, though.
There's plenty of good shows next season but it's still gonna leave a hole that won't be filled easily.
The only other anime I've watched that gave me a similar feeling was Code Geass.
It's not like Ange is taking away from Salia the love of his life or her position as the noble hero saving the world.
Jill just wanted pawns to use for her little personal revenge without caring about them. Meanwhile Embryo is an evil man who's just using Salia and basically the worst thing it could happen to her. You can even argue that Ange has been indirectly helping Salia unmask those two cretins. Salia just lacks (for now) the strength to send them to eat shit.
That's the thing about Ange and Salia that I find so interesting, Ange has never once actively tried to fuck Salia over. She didn't want to be the pilot of the Villkiss or be the object of Embryos affection, but she ended up being both and indirectly screwing Salia. Even her being a rebel in the squad and her destroying Salias mech weren't done maliciously, they were just side effects of Ange doing what she wanted to do and they ending up making Salias life a living hell.
And despite all that I can still relate to why Salia is so hateful and jealous of Ange. It makes perfect sense and if I was in her shoes I'd probably feel the same way.
Nah, they showed us that scene of Jill worrying about Salia for a reason. She'll get some kind of redemption via Jill, there's still unresolved issues between the two that need to be worked out.
Same with Chris and Rosalie, but that one will almost certainly result in one or both of their deaths.
This except I keep pumping. During pregnancy I take her to Dragonworld for more pumping with Salamanko. Don't worry. Angelise-sama will understand.
Even the current state of mind of Ange and Salia can't be any more opposite: the one who fights with confidence because she loves someone and is loved back by that someone against the unloved one desperately trying to win said unrequited love.
I wish it was saturday already.
I don't know. Jill intervening can make everything worse.
>"Are you trying to protect Ange, Alektra?"
>"Are you trying to protect Ange even when she never obeyed you, Alektra?"
>"You never cared about me! you used me!"
I will be relieved. I want off Fukuda's wild ride.
>Hell yeah, motherfucker.
>Hell yeah, motherfucker.
Even that was different, Salia jumped on this D as quickly as she could and sticks with him despite knowing full well she's being used, Jill went there to kill him and got mind broken and the first chance she could she escaped.
Just because she's a victim of circumstance doesn't absolve her of responsibility for her actions. In the end we are all victims of fates dictates, what defines us is how we deal with the cards we're dealt and Salia has consistently dealt with every situation that's come her way poorly.
