So, I don't have to pluck out my eyes and slide off my ears. Yey!

Onwards!

Season 2 episode 2 kinda had Knights of Sidonia feel to it. With the knights grouping mechs together for speed. So they are throwing the jealous half sister trope into this? As pretty as the cgi has become it feels more dry story wise as a space opera to me. But it is still just episode 2 an looks to improve.

Ep.14: is there anything Inaho's bionic eye can't do?

Ep. 14 was the reunion between Inaho and Slaine. Got to see more background on our silver haired princess who has taken a liking to Slaine. Lots of webbing in the romance department.

I fixed and updated the OP with three simulcast links. Sorry about that. For some reason when I changed posters, the code went haywire on me. I'll change the poster another time.

Ep.15: is Slaine a villian now? It seems like he has his own agenda and is planning something. Also the Earth forces actually managed to do something and Inko helped Inaho out

15 was epic!

@Wraith: 15 reminded me of the story of the injured snake an the girl who found it. http://www.gballard.net/lifes_lessons/girl_rattlesnake/ has the full story. But the part that rings out is ""You knew what I was when you picked me up,". The lord knew what Slaine was when he agreed to his terms last season.

Now with the Odin myth woven in I wonder If Slaine is named after http://www.2000adonline.com/books/slaine-the-horned-god.php it would be fitting.

Didn't expect that twist, but Slaine did not like anyone messing with his gal. He is the kind of the guy who sin to protect the one he loves

16 was pretty good but when it started I thought I missed a episode or it was a flash back.

17 was another good episode. So our Odin will look like a bad guy. An our "Loki" will look like a good guy but may not be. Good pace to the drama aspect of this show.

Caught up to 2 episodes. Not much happened besides character relationship development between Inaho and Y___, our Martian hating girl, Slain and Vers Princess. Looking forward to the duel next episode.

Ep.18: the duel between Slaine and the other count was pretty awesome. Now is Slaine planning some sort of revolution and looks like the princess plans on using Slaine. Also I'm pretty sure when the real princess wakes up, she may not be pleased with what Slaine has done

18 was good predictable but good. Ending I could see a mile away an I'm nearsighted! But it was still good.

2nd season episode 7 or full 18 as some sites are calling it. Not a ton of action but build up of a split on the martian side. It strikes me how this series drew me in much better than Gundam Reconguista in G. I understand who an whys here much better. It does the space opera bit with more connections to the characters emotions an motivations. Tho I feel this will become a 3 sided war as well , at least it world built in a way thats easy for me to grasp an still feel depth in the world.

Knew Slaine will win the duel. Didn't expect our sillver hair princess to announce marriage.

Second season episode 8 was well crafted. Animation was good some cost cutting scenes but that episode was crafted so well I am impressed. " to the princess who knew about earth." The build up to that was great. Appreciate the little things setting that up. Now our double agent knows the truth for sure.

Been presently surprised with how well this went. Much like with Leluoch you have to except a lot of things that are convenient and that refrigerator logic would show you the wholes in (memories don't really come back all in a rush like that and I expect the martian would be much more distrustful than he is here, as well I don't think the loli maid would have been this stupid ... she is young yes but she would have known not to give it to the real princess or at least thought about it. NOW she may be having conflicted loyalties in fact I would expect she is, but we haven't seen any evidence of that and we would need to for that to work.) BUT if you can get past that, it is a really really fun ride. No real "meat" under the wrapping but umm do those empty calories taste good. They no just how to one up themselves each episode (much like lelouch) and how to make the web ever more tangled but still believeable from a character perspective. I can't feel sorry for slain AT ALL, though they tried to make us do so here a bit with the I will never find solace comment. Not sure why he hates earth so much ... I can see why he would hate Inoho but seems somewhat childish to transfer that hate to all Earth when we know he doesn't really like mars after the way they treated him. But could have had to act like he did for so long maybe he began to believe it? I don't know.

The one question I really have is what is the rest of the Vers empire doing? I mean slaine is revolting here, starting a revolution. One would think even the dieing king wouldn't really go for this...

By coincidence, our sleeping princess awakens from her coma after our silver haired princess confess her feelings. Was it Inaho's younger friend or big sister who had a crush on Inaho? I can't distinguish the supporting characters after being in this series for a long time.

Finished Ep. 20. Lemrina's heart is breaking over Slaine. Mazuurek figures out the real princess is at another part of the castle due to Lemrina's racist remarks against Terrans.

It was a slow episode but enjoyable.
