Re: C.T.1290 versus Asuka. Examining the good and bad.

Of course some of that is Shikinami only. black I can't remember if we established whether C.T.1290 watched dub or sub.

Re: Wait so how did Spoilers die in EoE?

Whatever syncing to berserk levels did, followed by the harpies feasting, the gigantic explosion as the Black Moon gets ripped out of the earth would make a definitive coup de grace.

Re: So I watched the series and EoE a few days ago, and I really shouldn't have.

It is unsparing ...
