I still enjoy watching it, even if it's taking more than a few pages from Code Geass's book as well as throwing its characters into a roulette to see what new personality/role they should have for the show's 9th inning. I will officially label the show as "wasted potential" though.

At least it's not "Sacred Seven" wasted. Unlike that piece of failure, it's still enjoyable to watch till the end.

Ep 19:

Spoiler:

Spoiler:
19 was much more interesting than the last handful of episodes. Is it worth the garbage disposal they put the characters through in order to get to this point? Most definitely not. However, at least it feels like they know what they're doing for the final arc.

I'm sad that Segai dies though :( one of my favorite characters. I was hoping he would defect to the resistance :/ Daryl was a poor choice.

Also, maybe I forgot or missed it in the pile of fail in the last arc, what happened to that mass murdered guy with the gravity Void? They made it out to be a huge deal to get him released, then he just falls to the wayside.

19
Spoiler:
A I gotta say, as nonsensical as it is, having produced a Void arm is pretty f*cking badass. And with that power of his, he's going to be a one man army. But why is it that he was able to pull out his Void now? Did his powers evolve by exposing himself once again to the genome?
@Myskaros Apparently he joined Neo Gai. Though you're right, despite his supposed his importance earlier in the series, his character never developed through the series.

Spoiler:
From the dialog, he said something like "I was too afraid to reveal myself before," implying that he knew what his Void was all along but didn't want to use it/show it to anyone. From what I gleaned from during that sequence, I'm assuming his Void is the ability to copy other people's strengths and weaknesses, which explains why he was using everyone's Voids in an "unfinished" state. As far as psychoanalysis goes, it'd be something like he has no confidence in himself and can only imitate how other people behave. I'm just wondering what kind of ramifications there are for "stealing" people's Voids if he's able to "steal" Souta's infection.

Spoiler:
"Imitation of other's behaviors" huh...? I assumed it was like that because of how the people he interacts with, seeing both their strengths and weaknesses, that have an impact on his life, something that would stay in his heart, that he is able to use other's voids.

That sounds feasible too. Maybe I'm just too cynical ;)
Spoiler:
I don't really like Shu as a character, so I would prefer his Void be something less... positive :lol:

Freakin' Soda.

Spoiler:
He not only gets Hare killed, now he's survived long enough to get Shu killed too. Will his sins know no bounds?

Anyway, I guess Shu being infected confirms he'll die at the end. Unless Inori sacrifices herself and saves him in a DeM.

Spoiler:
In the end Neo Gai confirmed that Gai is like a mask to his true self

Like the episode
Finally he pulled his own void
Shu pulled a Shirou

If Shu can copy other's void
that means if the void he uses is destroyed, Is there no effect on others but to himself only?

I don't think that was an insult. XD

Spoiler:
I think it was a reference to the new arm.


Also, two episodes in a row that I thought were pretty good. o.O Wow. I'm glad I decided to stick with it 'till the end. Shu finally grew a pair.

I don't know how to put this since I only watched the anime and played F/UC but read some info on him
Spoiler:
It's Shirou's ability to copy any weapon he needed

Didn't he received an arm from Archer in HF route?

Pretty late reply but the 2nd OP Single has been leaked so it's been out the past couple of days. (official release date was th 7th).

Not sure if you can embed videos on this forum so here the YT link. (Here). It'll probably get taken down later like the others.
