That alone broke /a/ more than episode 14 did -- pushing 50 threads of 150 total a couple of hours after airing, almost obscuring the fact that the episode revved up multiple dangling plot threads at once.

The way 9α pronounced the ι in 9ι added some more possible wordplay -- Eo To became "nine ee-o ta"

"Baby" stuff  SPOILER: Show
It would have been a lot more interesting if Ichigo had this "baby" development, especially if Zero Two (who became as interesting as financial news recently) really isn't able to get pregnant.


I think there are more characters than roles in this story. The pilot is still the most interesting episode in the series so far.

Can you explain this?

That alone broke /a/ more than episode 14 did -- pushing 50 threads of 150 total a couple of hours after airing, almost obscuring the fact that the episode revved up multiple dangling plot threads at once.

And how many of them are people complaining that Kokoro is no longer "pure" in their eyes?

Translating 882 in the same way as the kids' names were made from their numbers, it reads "to mother" (preposition "to" rather than verb-forming "to").

And how many of them are people complaining that Kokoro is no longer "pure" in their eyes?
Kokoro was being called a slut just as soon as she volunteered for the partner swap. All that has happened on that front is a reawakening of that old argument between those who identify with Futoshi and those who identify with Mitsuru. Where there is disappointment, it's that 02/Hiro haven't been shown in a similar post-coital tangle.

This episode really spelled many things out... Sadly most of the plot revelations were not surprising at all. Going forward there will be a lot less suspense through ambiguity, which was one of the points I really liked.

Also, the rampant sexism of DarliFra fans continues to baffle me.

Kokoro/Mitsuru aside, I counted some 8 or 9 other major plot twists... they are really going all out.

Hiro gets horns (probably the biggest one)
Klaxo princess probably is more of an antihero than a villain
Two APEs dead
Sex is forbidden and adults cant even do it
Zero Two cant get pregnant
Nines have vastly different biology in general if blodeguyforgothisname's statements are anything to go by
Nana and other instructor guy are ex-pilots
And one or two others that I forgot because I was tired af when watching.

Also death flags galore and a great EoE reference

I feel like the most obvious outcome here will be that she just isn't compatible with anyone else until Hiro goes full blue oni. He is the only one who has been able to partner with her and not die after all.
Someday I hope that we'll be reunited if that is what's destined to be. Perhaps we'll discover that elusive bible. And then we will finally be free!

]More thoughts on the latest ep, some elements just started coming together. If these have been brought up in the thread, please excuse me as I'm late to the party.

-Irony:

SPOILER: Show
ImageImage
ImageImage


-Hiro/02 relationship by comparison comes off as more mature and connected at an emotional level without the need (right now) for physical intimacy. It was hinted earlier (ep 12) that 02 knows what sex is.

Image

-Hiro and 02 create a bridge between humans and klaxosaurs.

-Command has surveillance on Mistilteinn. Makes sense given that the caretakers are invisible yet know when to carry out their chores.

-Eventual Franxx battle with the 9s appears imminent. I'd like to see the rest of Squad 13 hold their own without Strelizia, which would leave the 9s and Squad 13 evenly matched. + the 9s' emotionless nature and uniform, all white Franxx.

-02 is numbered as iota, which is not the next letter in the 9s' naming sequence (it would be eta and theta).

-Genista becomes more badass in the next battle thanks to the change in partner dynamics. Conversely, Chlorophytum gets worse.

-The 9 zetas (those 3 girls with the masks) didn't make an appearance. Maybe they were chilling in some tanks somewhere?

-Suspect that Hachi and Nana were a Franxx pair.

-APE being supremely arrogant in delivering the ultimatum to the klaxosaur princess in her lair without a Franxx as backup. Then again it could have been deliberate:
SPOILER: Show
ImageImage


-While APE is still undefined, as aspiring humans they tare trying to "ape" humanity.

There are at least two other things in there that are more remarkable than Kokoro having been busy with her sewing. Here's one

The overall structure of Franxx reminds me of Utena. Only with two acts instead of three. I'm curious as to when the ominous hammer will finally fully drop on the cast, lol.

My guess is in Ep 21. 22 and 23 will be the final battle, and 24 the aftermath.

EDIT: Also, without having seen the preview, next episode will be hell unleashed when the rest of the cast finds out about Hiros horns, Mitsuru and Kokoro, or, knowing the amount of plot bombs per episode recently, both

Not sure if there wil be a wedding involved. But as far as Kokoro goes... either death on childbirth, or childbirth during battle.

If that turns out to be a childbirth- or insamination-ceremony, instead of a generic wedding, I will buy all the blu-rays.

This fits terrifyingly well.

Also, calling it now, Futoshi, Zorome and Ichigo are going to lose their shit completely over one thing or another in the next episode
