Ep 10

It was good to see Nene taking some responsibility. She realizes how much Clarion means to her and is going to take action to save her from that cyborg. Not sure how much help she will be without the Pandora Device, but I'm sure we'll find out soon enough.



Nene's fantasies killed me. Definitely laughed at that. Glad to see the police getting off their butts and doing things too. Clarion's fight didn't go well but I'm sure that she can be rebuilt if she's broken, right? Takumi is getting shadier with each passing episode. At least she's (mostly) on the good side for now.

Still hope Clarion's ok...

Pandora in the Crimson Shell Ghost Urn EP 11 / Ghost Urn

Episode title names the show.

Every body has an agenda Nene to find Clarion and World Peace.by peaceful means

Kurtz who wanrs World Peace but wants to do so with Buer's Weapon / laser which is actually a boring machine'

Takumi wants to stop Buer(Base of Unearthed Resources) / more Uzal but doent know about Kurtz . It's more about pride than hate there.

Bunny who has second thoughts about giving Buer's Key to Kurtz who is holding her friends (rebels )hostage

So a great joke ( about a trope ) that is used in TV movies anime is that of somebodfy trying to get through a hatch which Nene does all the Time.

Nene is thrown out into a trash hold ( like Star Wars ) where Bunny is . There are in danger so Bunny hacks inti Nene ( like The Ghost in The Shell / same author ) and in a nice animated segment saves them just in time. Nene and Bunny part ways but gives Nene Clarion's sword which Clatrion saved her.

A big cyber battle goes back and forth between Buer / Kurtz and Takumi . Buer makes a strong stand and is ready to launch the wepon but Takumi has stron g hack

Nene wanders to where Buer''s Machine is and Kurtz has had enough of her and tries to elimanate her but Clarion appears.saving her. Both decide to work together and stop all the violence but Kurtz brings Fear A huge Android?

That enemy at the end looks a awful lot like a Terraformer to me

Ep 11

I knew Clarion would be fine. There was no way she wouldn't be. I always enjoy seeing Nene's optimistic outlook on things. No matter what situation she is in she approaches it with such a joyful innocence. Even if a giant cyborg threatens to kill her she still has a smile on her face. I'm not at all invested in the story at this point. In fact I barely know what is even going on anymore, and the lightheartedness doesn't mesh as well with the darker tones as I had hoped.

That said, I'm not here for the story. I'm just enjoying Nene and Clarion's shenanigans. The two make a great pair.



Curious as to how the finale will play out.

Felt like this entire show was more about Clarion and Nene's relationship more than anything else lol



I wonder if they left out anything from the movie?

Pandora in the Crimson Shell Ghost Urn EP 12 / Elpis

That was good ending ! I really liked this anime I think it got overlooked !

But it was Clarion and Nene that was "Elpis " ( Hope) together that saved the world . It was nice to see Clarion missing Nene. Bunny and the girls survive Uzal is hidden but still in charge but have to work for Takumi . And Clarion and Nene finally go shopping.

Since it's late and I am way behind a better episode recap

BUER's thigh image fetish folder got hacked lmao after all that hacking that's what they got into that was pretty funny. Seeing clarion upset over nene was a little sad, although I'm sure we all knew they both would be fine as its not that kind of show. Poor aunt is always getting outdone by Uzal, but of course she was alive she's a baddass. I'm gonna miss this series.

It's a shame that a lot of people overlooked this series and never followed it. It's labeled as ecchi but besides accessing Pandora what exactly else was there that would give it that label? Anyone notice just how good that opening song really is? That piano playing is awesome, the ending song is cute plus the scenes are adorable.

I'm giving it a 9/10

I hope for a second season. They have interesting characters, including the aunt, a setting that has a lot of possibilities

Yeah I loved the aunt haha. When they first introduced her I remember being surprised as I pictured someone older and completely different looking. On another site she was getting some hate over her ending sentences saying dai-yah, which I found adorable. Let's hope for a season 2 although not many people watched this

This series was a fun mix of Cyberpunk and Magical Girls. Little absurd at times and gripping at others.

Nene and Clarion are a good pairing and really enjoyable to see together and Nene in particular still seems to have a lot of unrealized potential. This knack she has for going back to the begining to learn new things offers her a world of possibilities

Ep 12: Finale

Good to see that Uzal is still alive. Pretty much everybody got a happy ending which was nice to see. Funny that after all the effort that Kurtz and crew put into hacking BUER they only managed to get into a folder filled with thigh images. As much as I hate BUER I've gotta give him respect for that. Dude knows whats good. Funny to see Nene so accepting of it too. She is seriously just too sweet. The ending itself was left a bit open it seems, with Kurtz and Uzal meeting each other and BUER waking up at the bottom of the ocean. The manga is a bit different, but I don't think its further than this (translations are slow though) so it'll be interesting to see if the story goes forward now that it's all over.



Where can I buy a Clarion?



Final Thoughts:

I enjoyed nearly any scene with Clarion and Nene in it. They two are probably my favorite duo from this winter season, and the show more or less revolves around their relationship. Can't get enough of them. However, when the focus was elsewhere I found it considerably less enjoyable. The comedy was a mixed bag, and I felt like most of it didn't work. The story itself was a bit goofy but it did maintain a comfortable pacing. Definitely an easy watch and I can certainly appreciate that. The characters were great, namely Clarion, Nene, Uzal, Takumi and Amy. Not a fan of Buer though. Kinda sad that it got overlooked so much because it was pretty fun, but I think that it also could have been a lot better. It gave off Saturday morning cartoon vibes for me, in both the good and bad ways.

Overall: 5/10

I didn't know about this until it was done, but that meant I could binge-watch it over the past 3 days.

(Credit to FLjerry2011 for comparing it to Kōshi Rikudō's Excel Saga in another thread. Check that out on Hulu or Funimation if you liked this.)

Amazing overall, but any recommendations have to come with a disclaimer due to the Pandora access. Still a 9/10 in my book.
