Setting aside all of the teenage drama in this show, I have enjoyed this anime for what it is– a mecha series. On one side we’ve got the Vers Empire according to Saazbaum have been wanting to wage this war for quite some time, and ultimately question why should they have the blue earth. Then there is the Terrans who live on Earth, and are just defending their own people. It wasn’t until this episode that we are finally getting a larger view of the power struggle between the two factions, resulting in quite a big counterattack on the Terrans side, that killed many Vers troops.
For one thing I admire Eddelrittuo’s courage to remove herself from her duty as the princess’ maid and lead her to escape onto the Deucalion and still in the end she gets captured by the Vers Empire. Hopefully Rayet will rescue her.
Speaking of courage, Inaho has always been unusually calm about everything and it’s finally here that he is a bit unsure of what to do after seeing the Deucalion fall and Darazana’s decision to ram into the Landing Castle.
An awesome action-packed episode here! I was surprised Calm didn’t get killed getting Asseylum on board the ship and it is refreshing to see the Vers struggle just as the Terrans have since Episode 1.
OVERALL IMPRESSION: 8/10
