Damn them, it looks like the preview for ep. 19 may contain some major spoilers.

Anyways, eps. 18
[spoiler]
Somewhat predictable this time. We finally get to hear Lord Genome's words explained. And bad news for Nia x Simon by the sound of it :(

[/spoiler]

And the 19 preview (speculation but maybe spoilers
[spoiler]
So Simon's being put on trial for the damage to the city by Rossiu (traitorous bastard)

However, the very last scene it looks like Rossiu is giving Simon back the Lagan "key" so he must have a change of heart. I'm guess Rossiu relieves Simon of his political position but puts him in charge of a military operation to resolve this mess. Maybe he even reforms the brigade as the flashback in the first episode seemed to hint.

Well, I guess I was wrong. Really surprised that this show has turned into Gundam style politics.

[spoiler]
Viral and Simon jailbreak incoming, I bet.

Simon's got a lot of supporters still by the looks of it. He'll turn the tide on that traitorous Rossiu by the end.

Many of Rossiu's actions were logical, even reasonable. If not for his incarceration of Simon, his words that his actions were for the best of humanity would have been genuine, but in his imprisonment of Simon, he also locked away one of the fundamental delusions of humanity, that of hope. Thus, all that was left for humanity was flawed reason, short sighted logic, and despair.

Now reality's going to break and everything's going to become all kinds of surreal and nothing will make sense...

Thanks for the reminder. Ugh.

Episode 22 Major spoiler


[spoiler]
The world's saved? But Nia had to die.

Seems a little too convenient with at least 2 more episodes left.

Okay, glad the sub disproved my spoiler above.

And episode 22 is bloody epic. I don't think they'll top it.

It's Gainax...they'll top it :O

Or they'll ruin it.

[spoiler]
Viral x Simoun = the mad win

Rossiu finally realizing that hope is what it takes to win the battle, no matter how wreckless or foolish it seems, that the all or nothing attitude is the only thing that can really do it.

Nia maybe kinda turning back to normal...

I was waiting that whole time for Simoun to point out the ring, which she was still wearing. "come on man, call her out about that ring" When he does, it was like a Phoenix Wright moment...TAKE THAT!

I'm wondering if they'll pull more Ganmen out of nowhere.

Can we get a Neo Getter vs. Shin Getter ending where they basically fought god?[/spoiler]
