Get those handkerchiefs ready!
She ain't dead, though.
There clearly was an escape pod.
Tomino had said this series was for kids, and sure it was a bit simplistic, but mostly felt like Turn-A in a way.
But the last few episodes have really driven home it being aimed at kids with how stupid some of the actions have been and how simplistic and trusting the characters have been.
IE: Actually believing they were going to be given "tasty fish" after being attacked/held hostage by that group.
The G-IT Corps guy being a retard and firing on the G-Self when it was directly up against the underside of the ocean and not realizing it would blow open a hole. That huge "love scene" between Manny and Mask when they really hadn't had any interactions that hinted at him having any real interest in her at all, etc.
Yet people are jumping around switching sides and such so much that I can't even keep things straight anymore. So I don't know how he expects kids to follow the plot when the factions are this jumbled.
Anyone sorted this mess out and able to bullet point it?
The Megafauna is technically with Ameria, but acting alone atm. Klim is with Ameria of course and fighting the Capital Guard with their ship they got from Gondara or w/e ... and I think they're also allied with the Dorette fleet?
Then where does Towasanga fit in with this? Are they with Dorette or a different faction? Then you have G-IT Corps and the Full Moon ship that want to do the reconguista -- and the Megafauna fought them and took their mechs, but now seems to be traveling along with them as of last episode ... but then this episode back to fighting them?
And they let Manny train with them on the Megafauna and let her take a really powerful mech when she had infiltrated from the Capital Guard and let her go off with it back to Mask who is "against" the Megafauna.
Noredo being a pilot now makes no sense at all, since she wasn't even in the school for it, let alone letting her have a G-unit.
The one pilot from Towasanga I guess makes sense bc he's more an ally of Raraiya.
>IE: Actually believing they were going to be given "tasty fish" after being attacked/held hostage by that group.
They didn't. Donyell even makes fun of Noredo for believing such thing.
>they really hadn't had any interactions that hinted at him having any real interest in her at all, etc.
Even Barara points out how Mask is treating Manny way too nice.
Yep when dealing with 5-6 factions spread across 2-3 allegiances, and characters trading back and forth between them every episode, it's totally simple. Especially when they're sitting down for tea one episode, killing each other the next, then back to training together the episode after that.
He treats her professionally, and gives her more attention than others per se, but I took that to be as fellow Kuntala. He never once shows affection for her, and he doesn't go out of his way to see her ever. Their interactions tend to be randomly in passing while coming back from a sortie, and only because Manny takes it upon herself to be nearby during those times.
Please, anon. I can follow, as can Japanese schoolchildren and lots of others. Now, let's think logically, if you can manage it.
Maybe everyone else is wrong? Or maybe you're just retarded?
He touched her a lot this episode, I'd say that counts as affection.
The escape pod was caught in the explosion
It's pretty fucking obvious that Basara has eyes on Mask.
Does everything have to be spelled out in a tsundere rom-com scene for you people?
Jesus Christ, there's a scene where she starts crying after he saves her.
>tfw you fall in love with a girl and she turns out to be your sister
If I've seen all UC series and all AU series up to (and including) Turn A, I can start watching this one and not miss out on anything?
Or should I first watch the rest of them (SEED, 00, AGE) first? Is there some kind of continuity/references like how Turn A had to all previously unrelated ones?
Not just cheating your girlfriend.
People who can't follow this just watched too many shitty straightforward shows over the recent years. Anime served you alot of shit telling you its good, and you had nothing better to do than believe them and gobble it up.
Now you have to deal with your own regressed mind that can't even follow a story that goes beyond the simple black and white 2 factions scenario - I'm sure you guys couldn't even read a book and understand it.
