Episode 12

So let's see, someone is missing a heart, another has crystallized, someone has gained weight, and all sorts of other problems are popping up with these pilots. Meanwhile with the Exodus to Bangledesh, just when it appeared to be going smoothly there's another Festum attacks, and this one is an Azazel type that ate the one that escaped Srinagar. Akira sees firsthand that shielding people from the black hole isn't going to save them and totally loses it. The situation sure has gotten out of hand with the Festums not letting up while the pilots back on the island are in bad shape with the assimilation phenomenon making things tough on them. So now, Canon and Sakura are piloting Fafner once again. One more episode left to go before the show goes on break.

Episode 13


Weird ending for this season.

Not only do we get a rather violent ending (far from peaceful in my view) but there also seems to be a big of a cliffhanger with that strange child as well? The battles for this season is mostly good though imo with appealing soundtrack. I wish the story's pacing would of been better handled around the mid-half but overall was decent.

Hey stark, do you know if this is a split cour or will it continue on next week/after a short break? I ask because MAL has this at 13 eps and I don't see another cour listed?

Episode 13

A dark future awaits humanity seeing how the Altair is building up and the pilots are moping over the fact that they couldn't save anybody. But in comes Canon who figures out that time is being manipulated inside the Festum black hole, and uses that to her advantage to take out the Festums around the island. And now, a future where everybody around Canon is dead is shown to her, and thus the season ends there. That was a bizarre way to end the season, and while it was set up to be two cours, no announcement has been made at this time as to when it will happen. I would think that it continues in the summer in split cour fashion, but right now there's no news.

I'm honestly not sure. I remember the series getting announced for 26 episodes or something when ANN posted it awhile ago but now I can't be sure with the way the latest episode aired.

Fafner, in general, is such an underrated anime.

After a long wait, it's finally back.

Episode 14

And so, a perfectly planned-out attack that's un-Festum-like has left everybody in a bind. But with Miwa's help they are able to help others while avoiding unnecessary fighting against non-hostile Festums. So they make plans and find a camp where they can hide from the Festums in preparing for battle. And then the Festums come with everybody giving it their all, but all of the sudden somebody activated ROE Alpha. That sets the stage up for fighting from within seeing that the good guys were opposed to ROE Alpha, but somebody initiated it behind their backs. That's a solid way to get back into the thick of things seeing that the six month layoff was quite brutal.

Fafner is back !

And starts out with some fellow getting assasinated. And then we're off to the convoy which continues yet. Dealing with a festum threat which seems to be getting smarter, taking advantage of the weather to strike at them. Prompting a change in tactics which largely seems succesfull minimizing casualties.

And then as they make contact with human forces again.. RoE Alpha strikes and we see our hopeful "idol" blasted with a laser sniper. Take that hope for peace !

That's definately one way to start off the new season.

Season 2, episode 1


The ROE Alpha thing took me by surprise this episode.

Off to a good start this season though as it already sets up quite a bit of events that can potentially build up for the remainder of the episodes. I hope it can keep up with the momentum. The music and choreography of the action scenes still lives up to its style from the first season.
