Ep. 106

A nice ep.

Ep. 107

Another example of tragedy due to war, despite all the empty glamour, patriotism, etc.

Ep. 108

Spoiler:
More of the mystery concerning Maeter is revealed.


Ep. 109

Spoiler:
Interesting episode to find two 999s, two Maeters, and two boys in identical circumstances, though different stories.

Ep. 110

Spoiler:
Nice resolution to the two-parter. Interesting to see a place where humans despised cyborgs and were the superior.


Ep. 111

Tetsuro is a most human character, and this episode refreshingly shows it.

Ep. 112

Spoiler:
Even though Maeter recruited people for her mother, she definitely was doing it against her will. Too bad her attempt to destroy the Machine Empire failed, though there's one episode left.

Episode 113
A truly beautiful ending.
Spoiler:
Meatel leaving Tetsuro in the end was poetic.One of the main themes of the show was beauty of fleeing things, so in my opinion it was only appropriate end to this story.


This was the longest TV series I watched in my life...last 113 days were a wild ride full of nihilism and existentialism.
I really love this show!!!
