Welcome Darlings to the new Forum post for Ep 11!

As we all saw this Ep has seriously stepped up the dramatic nature of the show and the impact of the feelings.... so much more being revealed and a whole lot of development for the world and characters taking place.
For me it felt like a different show...

Because of the way things are quickening up and so much more emphasis on what the characters are going through and developing the lesser used characters.

(As much as i don't like using an already overused word such as "Epic" this is what could define this Ep and the progression we are seeing!


One thing i must add is i am trying to make a revised version of my post here... even future ones by not making them so much a novel to read if they don't need to be so i hope you all enjoy this new version of my work.

The beginning of this Ep we see Mitsaru having these Haunting dreams and he honestly looks like he is not feeling well and having a fever. The other guys notice this to but he passes it off as being nothing.
Even though he has never over slept like this before.

Ok from the start we see Hachi and Nana holding a meeting about the squads each individual performance thus far on killing the klaxxosaurs and their parasite pair scores.,

Any idea what S-planning is?
Hachi and Nana are discussing Squad 13 and their growth.... and with Nana saying it would be Unthinkable for any other team to accomplish this ,
Their growth has indeed been remarkable ,
We have all seen watching them grow together from the past eps

With 25 confirmed kills in the area that day making the total confirmed kills 90! :smile: Things are looking good for our team!

Nana tells Hachi that with their simultaneous puberty and competitive spirit the thing he had called "problems" are drawing out the full abilities in these children,

For me that is being said here is a huge clue...
And with what Hachi tells her next in reply... " Impossible! That would be a total refutation of out prior methods.
With Nana replying " What if that's exactly what Dr Franxx is after?

This is some big clues guys! Doc Frannxxx is a good dude.
He deserves support i feel.


----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Next scene we see the whole squad and them guarding what seems to be some drilling operation or digging for something.

With Zerotwo feeling even more confident already :smile: ( she loves to go full power and let nothing hold her back against the klax )
B)
This ep Futoshi has certainly been shining bright! along with Kokoro!
Glad to see them getting the screentime they deserve! Futoshi especially .

Here we see Futoshi giving Kokoro encouragement about them getting stronger over the time since they first started piloting the Franxx... and Kokoro agreeing as it is because of Fotoshi always trying hard to help carry her burden .
(He truly does people... he deserves much more respect than what he gets)
He takes responsibility that if anything happened to her it would be on him .... AWww :open_mouth: Futoshi! you go dude!

Futoshi then promises her that he would continue to improve himself to be the partner he could be for her, and asked if she would promise to be his partner for ever!
Which she agreed to

Lolz i love when Miku and Zorome cut in and say they heard every sickeningly sweet and disgusting detail....

During the battle looks as though Mitsuru is still not feeling well and passes out during the fight when they was needed the most as several klaxx had appeared.
He is then suddenly shown to be in an infirmary area with Hachi and Nana caring for him.
While speaking on what procedure would help , Nana says she will give him injection for the fever and it would have an effect by tomorrow.
Why is it named child fever?
Is it that common for the children to get these fevers?
All these are questions i would like to ask :open_mouth:

It was shown that he has already had this mysterious Elixirs injection 1 mg at age nine years.
Back in the dormitory of the Parasites everyone minus Hiro is speaking about Mitsuru,
With Ichigo saying he has always had a frail body and was the only child to return alive after having the injection.
Ikuno explains the Elixier injection as being a "highly concentrated drug that induces more yellow blood cell production , that increases ons parasite aptitude "

It is very interesting we are hearing more about these yellow bloodcells now. like when it was said Hiro's increased dramatically after riding with Zerotwo.
The next part we see is where the team is all sitting back at the dormitory without Hiro.
Speaking about Mitsuru.

( very interesting to note that it seems some parasites remember the past better than others... and for some like Mitusuru they can have haunting memories and dreams of certain hardships from then.
Could it be that some are suffering from amnesia from some traumas or was it an outside force?)

Mitsuru keeps having the dreams of Hiro and from when they was in the garden... this time he gets further into the dream,

He tells Nana he wants to pilot the Franxx still and won't let her say no. he seems to be running a test inside a machine and Hachi tells Nana the results were not very good and he may be a pruning target.
Is that what it means to fail as a parasite? you get to be pruned?

so many questions still.

All the parasites meet with Nana and are surprised by what she tell them, that they have the option to partner shuffle.
With Futoshi telling Kokoro they both won't need this shuffle as he had already promised he would protect her.
Then we see Zerotwo and Hiro together with her still acting very much like she has alot on her mind.
But Hiro reminds her of what he said about wanting her to speak her mind so he could learn more about her.
she acts like she never knew..

I feel this is because she did not want to speak about anything or it was far too painful right now.

I feel this is because she did not want to speak about anything or it was far too painful right now.
She shuts him up by placing her hand to his mouth and tells him It is a "Pain" honestly,

yeah she really is not wanting to talk right now dude... give her space and love though.

just observe what she is telling you through her actions and words...

"We can understand each other just fine by piloting Strelizia"
With a much worried Hiro looking on she walks away.
Scene changes again and we are now back with Nana asking the team who would like to switch partners... with Ikuno raising her hand first and explains she would like to try something never before done....
a Pistil to Pistil connection ,


"I want to try it out as a backup plan for emergencies for when have lost a stamen"
Yeah ok Ikuno... :stuck_out_tongue: but still smart idea! i mean it could help them....

So she asks for Ichigo to volunteer to help her in this ...
and she acts surprised and i think embarrassed to hell lol.
I so love it when Ichigo is shy or embarrassed almost so as i do with Ikuno.
Like when she got licked by Zerotwo when she knew about her "Secret."



Well Nana agrees to try it ,
She asks if anyone else would like to try switching and Kokoro raises her hand to the surprise to everyone.
Even Nana was abit surprised.
"Let me try riding with Mitsaru"

And Futoshi he crushed by this betrayal... it is so sad i could not post the pic of him.

Well in the test room the pairs of Kokoro and Mitsaru with Ichigo and Ikuno are testing out their new parings.
with Ichigo and Ikuno failing... and Kokoro and Mitsuru just barley making it happen but remaining stable
Back in the locker-room we see Ichigo saying she knew it would not work without a boy... and i do see this
hurting Ikuno a bit with her leaving while saying "i was serious you know"

Anyway she sees Mitsaru walking out at the same time she does and tells him "laugh at me if you must"
(this shows so much right here guys)

so right now im gonna amend this post it is already getting to be too long... you guys seen it i don't need to give you ever last feeling on everything.


Obviously we seeing Futoshi crushed and the guys trying to help him out by feeling better...



We then saw more tensions between Mitsuru and Hiro... with Hiro not knowing why.
and Futoshi is so enraged at Mitsuru at this point.

After that something else very important is we are seeing Mitsuru and Kokoro keep meeting in the greenhouse.
Why is that? there must be so much more between them.
and at this point Kokorko is filled with passion into wanting to a Mom.

With Mitsuru knowing this i feel too lol. (we all know she want's to know the joys of one day having children of her own)
Lol that moment when you get caught playing with your "baby" and wanting to be a mom...
Aww Kokoro! :heart:
During the battle after that ,

This battle was superb i mean it! and seems this time the Klaxx is stronger and can "self heal"

and create more Klax babies from it's damaged parts. During this fight Hiro stops Zerotwo from going all out
This makes her upset seriously. ( tbh i thought it was gonna cause more tension already there)

Futoshi is the hero during this too though and somewhat Mitsuru... though all had great teamwork on point



Mitsuru reveals he has been so hurt by his expectations and believing in people namely Hiro as he forgot all about his promise to pilot Franxx with him after he survived his injection.
And Kokoro knows he has hurt Futoshi terribly and betrayed him by breaking a promise to him.

(so much depth to this EP too )

She even starts to say she would have right to complain or blame them if she was betrayed,
And that it is up to Mitsuru if he feels he should forgive Hiro.

(Also what she said about her not being the "Nice and gentle girl you all think i am" really does say alot..
And she says she still wants to have relationships with people ,
to laugh and cry and have moments with them and that they all was not "perfect" like the adults.)
Well you all know what happens after that and btw don't the Franxx look like the mechs from Evangelion when they enter Stampede mode ? same mouth and head shape .

For me this ep shows so much more detail to the story and devlopment of Futoshi Kokoro Ikuno and Mitsuru .
Lol who else loved to see Futoshi being such a badass and taking on Mitsuru for his feelings of Kokoro and fighting in the battle ? He gave it his all! :smile: And him getting what he always wanting out of Mitsuru ,
his agreement to promise to protect Kokoro next time :smiley:

And the best part ever! :smile: Zerotwo hugs Hiro from behind and tells him they will be together
for all time even on the day of their death !
and she would never trade him out,
He is her Darling! <3

I have to say i love this Ep much more! the moments of worry bewteen Hiro caring for Zerotwo and Kokoro with Mitsaru and how Futoshi has done his best for Kokoro and loves her!
He announced it outloud! :open_mouth: :heart:

(I do have to say Mitsuru has shown something about himself...he may be gay like Ikuno is?

I mean it is not that far away fromr elaity to say he may could be?
Ikuno had wanted to be with Ichigo all along an i do see he kind of same thing happening with Mitsuru for Hiro... he loves Hiro.... and he felt so betrayed.. but he still loves him.... and i do feel Ikuno knows somewhat about how he feels with Hiro becaue she tells him some things like " you only want to be aknowledged but not by papa or the adults.."
She means Hiro! and yeah i think Jayassassin knew this too.. for me this Ep really hinted at it more and i kept thinking hmm whats going on but later after i even seen the part where he wanted to "ride " with Hiro... That for me later it clicked like oh man maybe he is gay like Iuno has no interest in the boys. I am speaking about the pic he showed in discord, as a joke?

But you proubly knew he was gay for Hiro so you go dude! :smile: like i was thinking what no way
until it hit me this Ep near the end where i was thinking it over.

I could see the writers including both Gay characters here and it would make sense as the hardships of them not ever being able to ride with the one they loved.

Mitsuru really did have so much more feeling for Hiro... this makes so much more sense now why he was acting this way too... He LOVES Him! but still resents him for what happened and he was only trying to show Hiro up and that he could do as good as him by trying to "steal" his pairing with Zerotwo.... he only wanted to be with Hiro and get attention plus he was still hurt bad. he wanted Hiro to see he could do better plus get his aknowledgement in his heart
this is all Mitusru wanted i also feel he truly was angry too that yet another person got to
ride with Hiro and not him.... his hearts all broken guys..)

Anyway thnks to Sneaki-chan for allowing me this time to introduce the newest Ep
and helping me to post this due to some crazy techincal diffuctly on my end with Cr :smile:

Tell me all what you think about this "Theory" of maybe Mitsuru being gay for Hiro,
and Thanks to Komodo for showing more about Ikuno being atracted to Ichigo :smiley: .

Lend me your thoughts my Darlings... -Sneaki

Thank you Sneaki! yeah you made it look excellent and added such nice pictures here too since i could not, and it makes it so much better... also the Famous Quot of yours

The slow motion shot of Futoshi's big fist caving in Mitsuru's face is awesome too!

I still stand by what i felt after this whole thing... Mitsuru wanted to be Hiro's partner... and if you think back to the one beach Ep he was the only one not even interested in the girls or would say anything that may be taken as his sexual preference,

Though at the time i thought maybe it was all just him being himself and not so into the group activities... but now it does
show much more proof.

Also they both are not at all interested in each other that is certain... not even if it was one sided from Mitsuru being
attracted to Ikuno.. but no nothing.

Mitsuru was simply paired with another who could feel his pain, ironically
as this story goes if by chance, and tbh Ikuno wanted to help him but at same time
is getting him to remove that fake persona he has taken up.
She is so over his attitude and know's that won't change anything.

Now i see much more from this, plus Mitsuru has not really shown any "interest"
like the other boy's have shown towards other girls. ( you knwo like when there is play fighting or strong feelings such as with
Miku and Zorome... they do that because it is all they know to do and it is their way of showing it.


But with Hiro he has this tension with and i now see what it was all about,


One thing i can say is atleast Ikuno did her best to make her heart's desires into reality....
and she told Mitsuru to "laugh at her if you must" when it failed



Also thank you Sneaki for all the love bro we love our family here of this group too! we all are awesome
Also Mr'Banks!
And congrats to Buyinggf for the mod position, you helping to make the group better too by fixing issues and posting !


hmm i am trying to post pics but not working well i will post some later tonight then :O

Phew.. that episode really played with our emotions. Both in good and bad ways.


Let me start with the one thing that has been on my mind the whole time since it happened..

We were completely right with our thoughts about Ikuno. She actually DOES "like" Ichigo. Eeven tho the evidence was there we all were pretty surprised when seing it happening. But we also all got to see how it turned out.. Not that good for Ikuno.

And dont get me started on the thing about Mitsuru.. HECK. I didnt expect anything like this. He dun goofed.. And Futoshi? Got cucked.. there i said it. and no i wont say it in german on discord lol.

No but i seriously feel bad for Futoshi. He didnt deserve this. Damn Kokoro you cant do this to poor teddybear :D

At least Mitsuru feels bad for him too. I'd guess that either Mitsuru friendzones Kokoro in the future or Kokoro will actually go back to "Le'Thick" (dont ask me .. thats the translation for his name)

That stuff about the yellow bloodcells.. i dont get it .. did they develop another type of bloodcell to speed up healing process? Im pretty sure that just another way of APE controlling team 13 and the rest.

Im gonna keep this short and sweet and say that this episode was all over the place. Good. But all over the place. lol

Can anyone clue me in as to what's the significance of the bouncing ball that kept bouncing time-and-time again throughout the episode?




It could be nothing, but it also could be something. Could it just be an item used to identify a parasite? Because it's in the OP as well along with Ichigo's bunny (Which I don't even remember the significance of the bunny either...)



Anyways, this is just a quick post. I don't expect anything from it lol

The Blue ball bouncing around is a symbol for the feelings Mitsuru has for Hiro. At least thats what i think it is.

OHH I GET IT NOW! So in the first scene of Mitsuru clutching the ball, that means that he's eager and wants to be close to Hiro. And then the second scene, he let's go of the ball, thus separating his bond between Hiro. THAT MAKES SENSE! GOOD CALL!

Many good explanations here @ Komodo and Aniwake... i still see this tying in with what they did to Hiro. could be he was going to be from some clone or be a backup to the 9s.

I have been thinking much more too on what happened, i get what you are saying Aniwake... all good and this one ep was kind of off too from the others but it was still good.

i am sure the next shall be better and show more of what we need to know. Kokoro has some explaining to do too

Anyway yeah as it stands you was telling the truth about some things should have been shown more in this ep or maybe was misrepresented .(though could be we were missing some key things due to it being abstract and hidden for us to use our own mind and heart to decipher)

Has to do with the climax maybe ? thats what Im feeling anyway.

(not saying the series is bad or this one ep was that terrible but some things could be held back so when it is revealed we are all surprised)

But also we have some work to do of our own to see what signs or abstract forms we are given to understand deeper the plot or what is going on in this world or the persons feelings. hope i said this right lol

I do still like this ep though. just going to watch for ep 12 for some clearing up of things.
