Ep. 45

Spoiler:
Tragic ending. Humans at their worst, and the Valkyrie becomes like them. Good thing she finally snapped out of it, although she has to atone for the rest of her life.

Episode 46
I had this strange feeling that I know voice of Nanmi.I did some research and found out that he was voiced by one and only Shuuichi Ikeda aka voice of Char Aznable!
Spoiler:
War claims victims even after its conclusion.To quote Plato:"only dead saw end of war".
I really liked color palette used in this episode,lots of grays and dark blues.Those colors perfectly showed tone of this story.

Episode 47
Great, thought provoking episode.
Spoiler:
A poignant metaphor for modern warfare coverage.War is dehumanized to ridiculous extent,audiences in US and Europe look at exploding military hardware with no reflection on the fact that there were living people inside,because war for them is a show,an adventure,a good story not an unspeakable horror.
Also showing soldiers as willingness sacrifices made to uphold economical stability instead of white knights fighting for "good cause"(pro-tip:murdering people is never a good cause)was just on point.

Ep. 46

Another tragedy.

Spoiler:
Poor Nanmi. Thinking the war over but not remembering or knowing the computers still operational! What a mess El Alamein became!

Episode 48
Spoiler:
Oppressive regimes are always happy to drown people fighting for freedom in their own blood...and then make it into a show to entertain the public(and give a lesson to anyone who may have the same idea).

Episode 49
I want to live on this planet,such a lovely place.
Spoiler:
After all he's been through I can understand Tetsuro having trust issues.That doesn't change the fact that this was first genuinely great place this show visited.

Ep. 47-48

A great two-parter. Another story that gave me the tears.

Spoiler:
Too sad about Zeda and all the rebels; if only Brudas wasn't sucked in by the President's lies.


Ep. 49

A very uplifting one after the rather depressing two parter. Another ep that hit the tears, in a good way.

Spoiler:
After all those horrible planets, it was very good to see a planet where the people were still full of hope and didn't envy any one, or wanted power over everyone else. They just wanted to have peaceful lives.
