I have these words to say: This episode was so damn good, that I'm afraid it may be a season finale. Literally everything we all wanted as a group came true this episode (BuyingGF you were pretty close on your last predictions so kudos to you).

The fight during today's episode was easily the best one we have seen so far. The Plantation 26 parasites performed a lot better than I expected. They even managed to take out 90% of the smaller Klaxosaurs all by themselves. But obviously, as the final foe was presented they crumbled and were saved by the glorious squad 13 (So they kind of got ganked). As the battle begun we saw how unorganized our group of friends were. I mean, they were literally all over the place. But as any happy ending anime goes, they surpassed the odds and worked a killer plan out in the end. Okay... so to hell with Ichigo by the way. Maybe this opinion is a little controversial, but this girl and her eMotIonS are starting to really just let loose. The second Hiro gets into any trouble she just loses all composure, and I'm afraid of what outcomes could come of this during the next fights. Her connection with Goro may become weaker and conflict between her and Zerotwo is obviously going to continue. If not worsen.

So the crown jewel of this episode. Hiro! We saw last episode that he was being infected by some terrible blue goo, and honestly, it seemed like he was just begging for the final nail in his coffin. But as you saw, Trigger & A-1 Pictures pulled a total AOT move. "Oh no look at that... our protagonist has fallen and is seeing the afterlife... Sike he lives because of some special ability he was inherently born with!." All jokes aside I could not wipe the grin off my face once seeing him wrap Zerotwo up in his arms. He seemed to absorb the blue goo as if some gaining some sort of superpower. Maybe Hiro has some Klaxosaur blood within himself? Ooo. Zerotwo letting her inner monster out, they really play out the whole flightless bird thing. And Hiro, finding himself a new reason to fly Strelizia. To be her wings of course. I was so happy with the ending of this and can say for real this time, I will be making no predictions. I can't wait to see what the show has up its sleeves in the coming episodes. Hope you parasites enjoyed my rant! Now it's your turn...



(I'm loving the anime world rn)

I got another prediction. Even though I'm still not mod yet imma double or nothing on this one.

Naomi? Hiro's first partner that was swallowed up in the first episode isn't actually dead. She's going to be part of the plot in the future when the team unravels some kind of conspiracy about papa and the pantation's inner workings.

My take is that instead of letting the "blue goo" as you call it control him, Hiro decided to take control and basically "man up". See the infection reside means, to me at least, that he is now in control of the powers it brings. This should make Zero 2 really happy as I suspect that is what she has wanted. A man to partner with, who is strong enough to support her so she can literally "spread her wings".

Although a great prediction, maybe even for the whole show. I cannot mod you based off a prediction. Hard work and dedication to the group will get ya there.

Most powerful episode to date, Hiro's "rebirth" was simply amazing.

The woman who is supposed to watch over Squad 13 (forgot her name) in HQ mentioned that his genes are the complete opposite of Zero-Two, so i dont think he has klaxosaur blood in him, but can instead absorb/destroy klaxsaur cells? I just hope they don't do a guilty crown ending with this bc it would be too depressing.

Oh my lord I didn't catch that! Yeah, Nana said that but I guess I never really caught on. I'm putting my money on that.

Hey really liked reading what everyone had to say here. I shall try to be more active here .

For me personally this episode done it for me, have not seen really anything in while that got me this hyped. well not in the same ways but Ancient Magus had me at times too... but different way.

What @Sneakichan said about is what i wanted to say though to add , these characters are really unfolding and im excited to see whats going but as was said Ichigo is seriously heading to a crash and burn situation soon if she don't get it together...

But whats so great is this anime had me hyped for a mech series like nothing else..

I see Dr'Franxx will be shown more and partly i see soon maybe a secret or two unveiled to shake things up in the coming episode, i don't think in the next 2 but maybe 3 or 4... we shall see. though i personally see the leader of squad 26 reveling some himself. idk something i thought about. just theories .

Ya'll notice in the first episode he gets out of the Franxx and is leaning on Zero2

In this episode he gets out and Zero2 is leaning on him.
