Seems like Funimation or some production delay is keeping them from uploading the latest episode (it did air btw)

I wonder what is going on with this episode, and given that not many people are watching it that I don't see anybody complaining about it on Twitter. I finally got something to speed-watch this episode with as I plan to watch it again once the episode is finally uploaded.

UPDATE: The episode is now up, 6 hours and 30 minutes after its schedule time. Not sure what was going on, but nevertheless it's now available and I just finished watching it.

Episode 10

What a bastard that Johann is and as if it weren't enough that he caused hell in Rimgarde, as well as hiding in his Ruks ex Machina while his clones do all the dirty work, he's now manipulating others by taking control of their minds like what he is doing with Noa, as well as erasing everybody's memories of Yui and friends. Poor Yui had to go through all that crap with nobody remembering who she is. But thankfully, Noa had some strength left to allow Sara and Tia to escape and warn Yui. And then there's the ring that really helped pull Yui together at a time of need. It's one thing to want to destroy the world as Johann plans to do with the Ruks, but it's another thing entirely for him to toy with everybody's feelings like that, which is where he really crosses the line as if he didn't already.

The end of the world is near as the planet is surrounded by that WMD.

I really want to see one of the Regalias rip Johann and all his clones in half. The dude is a real pain.

Episode 11

Now that Yui has joined the battle, Ingrid and Kei are hard at work trying to bring Noa back with Sara and Tia back to offer them some help, while Yui tries to bring Rena back to her original self. It turns out that Rena used up her powers and is about to become a statue, while Johann sees everybody as nothing but his dolls just like what he did with Noa. Against all odds, Yui brings Rena back to human form through her ring, and they join the battle. Johann couldn't get any more disgusting, but nevertheless everybody is back and getting ready to hand out divine retribution that should have happened a long time ago when it was only one of his clones getting it.

Not that bad. Certainly not as bad as MAL might make you believe. There are some very strong action and character sequences.

Just like with what happened two weeks ago, the episode is not up. It appears that Funi forgot that they still have this show to finish up while they were too busy with their Crunchyroll partnership.

Episode 12

Sara and Tia get the heads up from Noa about what they need to do to free those souls from the from Johann's control and while they couldn't destroy that sphere, Ingrid and Kei finished the job for them. And now it's onto the final battle and just when it looked like the world is saved with the cage crumbling and two Renas appearing to power up the mecha, Johann comes back in the Ruks ex Machina's ultimate form. Johann sure has lost it big time here as that scumbag with nothing redeemable just won't die. One more episode left to go as the final battle begins.

Sigh, just when I thought I couldn't despise Johann any further, he proves me wrong. I guess he's bringing out his final trump card for the last episode? Guess we'll have to see...

His mech has such a weird design tbh

And once again, it's not on Funimation and there's no knowing when it will come.

While I usually have my final thoughts drafted ahead of time and ready to post, as usual in situations like this I won't post it until after the video is finally posted.

And now the episode is finally up two days late.

Episode 13 (Finale)

That was a predictable way to end this show, but nevertheless anything else just wouldn't do. It turns out that the other Rena is the power source for the Regalia, Ruks. The girls combine their mechas to form the ultimate machine to show Johann not to underestimate the human spirit. He was surprisingly at peace after being soundly defeated, but that's what meeting Yui does as she passes her pair of rings to Ruks and Johann to wear during his final moments. And so, this show ends with in meh fashioin as it was predictable and only involved the end of the battle and not really tying up loose ends.

Final Thoughts

This show has some nice things going for it with great characters, excellent action, a good story concept, and decent character development. But there are a number of problems this show has with most of them happening at the beginning of the show that set the stage for something lackluster. The biggest problem is that the story took much longer than it should have to establish itself with the calmer parts of this show just tiring me out and breaking the momentum of the show. There were just too many calm segments that really pushed my patience to the limit. Other problems include the animation, which I give Actas credit for doing something about to make the show more presentable, and a poorly written villain that has absolutely no depth at all. In short, this show is best during the intense and relevant segments, while it stumbles in the more calmer segments for which there are too many of that this show could handle.

Grade: C (high 6/10)
