24 episodes later, Trigger and A1’s joint robot saga has finally reached its conclusion. We talk about what we got out of this hotly anticipated collaboration (hint: mostly pain)
Zero Two and Hiro face VIRM in a final showdown, while back on Earth the remaining Parasites begin to rebuild human society.
Some time after the previous episode, the Parasites struggle to survive on a newly adult-less(?) Earth. That is until Hiro discovers where Zero Two has gone and the crew head off into SPACE.
With Hiro and the Klaxosaur Princess incapacitated, it’s up to Zero Two and Dr FRANXX to break through and rescue them and, by proxy, the entire planet.
The Parasites gear up for the final battle against the Klaxosaurs, as Hiro and Zero Two attempt to activate a mysterious superweapon.
We step back in time…not that far actually, to see the origins of the mysterious Doctor Franxx, while in the present the Parasites complain a lot but don’t actually do anything.
Hiro decides Mitsuru and Kokoro should get married…for some reason, prompting a shocking but welcome instance of police brutality.
The Nines return to pay Squad 13 a visit and bring their RADICAL MARXIST SJW agenda with them. Also this week, Zigg returns to the blog and immediately wishes he hadn’t.
In the aftermath of the battle for Gran Crevasse, Squad 13 is mysteriously placed under an isolated house arrest.
Squad 13 team up with a bunch of other FRANXX units, including the enigmatic Nines, for an assault on the ‘Gran Crevasse’
Hiro remembers his first encounter with Zero Two in their early childhood, while back in the present her violent assault on him causes the rest of the squad to reject her.
The Parasites return home to ‘The Garden’, the mysterious laboratory where they were all raised. Zero Two becomes increasingly angry and upset, prompting Hiro to try and find out what the matter is.
You can tell a show is good when we’re on our third different writer before it’s even halfway done! This time Zigg and Gee attempt to handle petrol monsters, meeting the parents, and the world’s clumsiest attempt at homosexual metaphor.
It’s beachtime for everyone!… even though the only environments we’ve ever seen are deserts. Afterwards, contrived substance Klaxosaur causes sexual tension between the sexes. Fun….
The day of the assault is here, and Hiro is determined to pilot, even if it kills him. The fight seems to go as planned, until a bizarre, gargantuan klaxosaur brings Hiro to the brink.
“Your Thorn, My Badge” Saturdays at 12:00 pm EST on Crunchyroll Well, after a week of letting y’all decide on what show I’d watch, we ended up with a tie. Now, apparently in Japan tying is like kissing your sister, so considering the bad implications anime has given to that, we’ve decided to break the tie…
