I really liked it overall, but I was a bit disappointed that the fight against 100s of Conrad klaxos largely went for the "there are 100s but they attack 5 at a time" cliche. I wanted to see the P26 and P13 deal with them at least outnumbered 5:1 in the immediate engagement or something.

Hunter Sanders

Nolan Rivera

Absolutely garbage episode. Zero payoff for previous episodes, zero hype in a moment that's supposed to be hype, zero stakes in anything because no one's in any danger. Strelicia mary sues everything just because, Team fuck up becomes Team competent just because, Ichigo is suddenly good pilot and overcomes mental issues just because, Hiro is a magical chosen one just because. Shitty animation and generic music everywhere.

Can we remove Trigger and have A1 make show about teenagers angsting in robots? At least it has character drama.

Consider that the fight went for longer than showed.

Xavier Young

Basically.

Though the fact of the matter is they basically aggroed and picked them apart like mobs in a game.
Not exactly the high point of giant robot badassery, but it's probably as such to set up the ridiculous power level of Strelitzia as it sweeps in and starts ravaging the small ones by the dozens.

It might not have done, what if that was her blue monster blood tainting him and his body was rejecting it so it was hurting him.
But once he accepted her, he accepted the monster side of her too, so now he's going to turn into a monster as well and they'll have monster babies

John Rodriguez

I know you are trying your hardest to make this particular shitposting line stick but its pretty retarded. Nothing about Hiro's condition or what casused it or apparently cured it is known. This may be explained in the next episode for all you know.

If it is never explained only then will shitposting about it be valid

I think it was kind of important for them to be lame, they showed real annoyance towards working with 02 when they knew she was there as she was a loose cannon. So it would make sense that there team works solely on being as precise as possible.

Reflecting on its actually personally quite good character building as a group and while they didn't take down the big one, they still came out strong by pretty much cleaning house.

Ian Sullivan

Jose Butler

They're common grunts who have nothing but standard gear and own skill and coordination to win, and they were dealing with enemies just fine. Certainly looks better than jobber squad who job despite their low numbers and blingy custom mechas.

Jace Mitchell

I don't even think they were lame. The mass produced franxx were cute and it was interesting to see how effective standard military procedure could be. Their spear/lasso thing was really neat and effortlessly took down almost every threat. The experimental team has totally unique franxx like Strelizia and the other legendary soldiers but they were barely able to handle the few guys who broke through the first defensive line.

Benjamin Cox

Jaxon Anderson
Jaxon Anderson

it's not retarded at all. Why not make the cancer recede slowly while he is hugging 002 for example? It would have made the effect more believable than the instant recovery.

1. Hiro comes to his senses.
2. He realises 002 needs help and a reaction starts in his body.
3. He gets up and hugs 002.
4. As she calms down, his cancer also recedes.

There, I just fixed the scene.

Jack Jackson
Jack Jackson

What a dumb post. First of all, making the grunts lame just so your hero looks cool is shit storytelling. Secondly, in universe these guys are supposed to be good at what they do, not lame. Even 002 remarks how they are much better than the P13 squad, yet this is something we're only told is the case, as what we actually see says something else entirely about them.

The fight scenes were extremely convenient and poorly choreographed. That they were doing "just fine" was by the staff's edict only.

Yeah, so effective the staff had the klax attack them in waves. This is contrived as shit.

Kayden Ward
Kayden Ward

You dont have a single fact to back that up though.

The part where you look retarded is that what you are both saying would be valid if this series does not go on to explain what happened. You are just so keen and overly entheusiastic to blow your amature shitposting load that you have jumped the gun on this particular shitposting line.

Please just wait a few weeks and keep your autism in check. If it turns out to be as you say then by all means crack on.

Cooper Torres

Robert Green
Robert Green

Eh, we clearly don't see them killing 100s so we didn't see the entire fight, so I'm fine with them not showing 150+ identical klaxos killed on-screen, I just wanted to see how they handle large numbers of shit enemies, instead we got shit enemies which apparently run in like 5 at a time. It's really a tired old cliche and I was hoping they'd avoid it. Strelizia was pretty cool though, went straight in the thick of it at least and gave an impression of actually fighting a horde.

Dominic Peterson

James Martin

I have several ideas but at this point I have no idea which could be the most plausible. Probably 1st or 3rd
it went inside and changed Hiro as he accepted 02 as his long-term partner, he's something different now
it just healed as suddenly as it appeared, no idea how or why
it's related to the excess of yellow blood cells, so perhaps Hiro's count actually went down; maybe YBCs are related to magma energy and Hiro pumped the power into Strelizia and it was then used it to kill Beta

What do you even mean? P26 cleaned house fighting Conrads, they worked well together and used safe, effective tactics while being much more efficient than P13 who are so green they couldn't even avoid literally running into each other. P26 did fine. They couldn't handle a Gutenberg class, but they're just regular soldiers, their equipment just wasn't appropriate for that fight. Even Strelizia couldn't take it out in the first blow.

Landon Bennett
Landon Bennett

Kill yourself.

P26 cleaned house fighting Conrads
Yeah, off-screen. What we're shown of their battle is very slow paced and overly convenient, with Conrad class Klaxosaurs never ganging up on them.

they worked well together and used safe, effective tactics while being much more efficient than P13 who are so green
This is what we're _told_ about them, but it does not mesh well with what we're shown at all. Just watch your webm ffs. They take forever to kill single units, in that one specifically having to group up to take down one tiny dino. Because for some dumb reason, the dinos never swarm them like they did in episode 3 for example. They sit on the side and let P26 have at the guys they're engaging.

They couldn't handle a Gutenberg class, but they're just regular soldiers, their equipment just wasn't appropriate for that fight.
No one said anything about them being lame because they couldn't take down Target Beta, user.

Hunter Smith
Hunter Smith

Also, in the first "wave" the P26 guys kill 3 Klaxosaurs and let 4 go through for P13 to deal with. And then they call the P13 guys dead weight. Another instance of the script being at odds with the storyboarding. That line would not have been so out of place were the P26 guys shown killing more than 3 dinos, and taking forever to do it too.

Ian Diaz
Ian Diaz

They take forever to kill single units
It takes them like 10s to kill one, then we later see them bunching up several and killing them all at once. Even if they kill at a rate of 10s/Conrad klaxo that's 1500s to kill 150 of them, not even half an hour to wipe out a horde of the estimated size. They're probably significantly faster since they started bunching them up, so you can hardly bitch about them being slow.

Because for some dumb reason, the dinos never swarm them like they did in episode 3 for example
Yes, I do have a problem with this too, though to be fair a FranXX seems to be vastly faster and more maneuverable, not to mention being able to fly (or at least jump very high). So if they're smart about it they would not end up fighting 50 at once at close range or some shit because they are the ones with engagement control and not the klaxos.

Episode 3 takes place in cramped as fuck mines with the 100% green, 0% experience P13 squad. Maneuverability can't be employed there even if they had the skill for it, which they absolutely to not.

No basic rules of media directing demands that every new plot point that appears in a episode must be thoroughly explained during the same episode no exceptions.

It's the last episode of the first arc. It was supposed to be a climatic episode, they even did the titledrop. The audience was supposed to be blown away with emotions after 5 fucking episodes of set up, not learn some facts about MC 's development. Execution was fucking horrible.

Jordan Barnes

Julian Martin

The origins of "darling" can be found in the very heart of the English language; its earliest known uses can be traced back to Old English writings from the 9th century. Old English "deorling" was formed by attaching the Old English suffix -ling ("one associated with or marked by a specified quality") with the adjective "dēore," the ancestor of our adjective "dear" ("regarded very affectionately or fondly," "highly valued or esteemed," "beloved")

The
associated with or marked by a specified quality
part interests me. Is it possible that she learned the word to mean something like this?
Look at the way she uses it, stuff like
Yeah, this guy really isn't cut out to be my Darling

I think it also makes sense because Hiro only matters to her if he doesn't die after the third time riding with her. Is that the special quality she's marked?

thoughts on this?

Brody Sanders
Brody Sanders

The "blue shit" was the symptom of some bodily change that 02 has precipitated on Hiro.

It hasn't "vanished", all that's gone away is the Hiro's bodily response to whatever 02 was doing to him. The scene looks more like instead of Hiro's body fighting the infection, it has instead accepted and internalized it, which in turn kind of follows Hiro's frame of thought in the scene.

We'll probably get Dr. Franxx discussing Hiro's changes next episode, I think he was avoiding interacting with Hiro up until this point because he considered Hiro dead meat up until now.

Her highest term for infatuation would be sibling, although she probably knows she thinks more than that about him, but she can't articulate it. She probably also knew that when he said "yeah, same" that he doesn't think of her the same way she thinks of him, hence her getting all sad.

Because it does a backpedal for the sake of plot and that backpedal comes out as generic shamefully
I was ready to drop out the show when hiro just ''teehee I was useful :) my friends will be aight'' when all the past episodes have proven the opposite. True Hiro did indeed wanted to be useful but I am talking about that confession to Zero Two or him just being satisfied to do enough. If it wasn't (again) for 02 I would have dropped this show. Seeing her out of her usual ''darling and weaklings die bie deal'' character and show her true nature was nice and gave an actual insight of her real character. That being said that is also a problem by itself. When a show rides on the shoulder of just one character it just shows how little the writer/director thought the show and quality goes downward because of it. I will say it once because some people don't get it and even those that go about ''generic'' also do it.

Any premise despite being generic CAN be good if the characters are great. Darling shamefully isn't doing that and isn't compensating enough on other fronts to make up for it.

Here let me put it in a simple way because it seems even the barebones of this show works your brain
First we have hiro
I want to pilot a franxx for the sake of protecting my friends and be useful
okay cool that is a standard set up for a character but give me more.
We later have a situation where Hiro has his ''partner'' taken away but we also learn that he is level headed enough and doesn't let things get to his head like dumb bla bla from mitsure so later
I want to pilot the franxx from all the previous reasons but more importantly I want to ride it with you
Cool more progression with his character bu-
I gave my best lol 02 doesn't need me and was useful :))
See? it was a backpedal in his character for the sake of plot and shamefully that comes out as generic. From what we have learned Hiro wouldn't have taken the fact that he died as ''just enough'' which is the reason why i liked 02 pushing him and Naomi calling him a liar. Now here is another fit I had with this ep and hope it opens your eyes
Flashback to an already dead character and somehow said character happens to know the MC even better than himself and his ''brother / sister''
Not sure about you but I have seen scenes like that in every show with a similar scenario. Listen dude no one thought Hiro was going to die. Anyone who did is retarded after all he and 02 are the main characters of the show. That being said if you wanted this to be their show then don't bother to offer me other characters that have the personality of cardboard. Anyone that isn't 02 and Hiro might as well don't exist really.
I hope I am proven wrong later but so far everything is just meh.

claxcore is yellow inside blue sphere
Hiro got a blue tumour in the place of his heart and there's yellow blood cells in his blood
he actually died for a moment but blood started flowing again while his eyes has turned red
It's almost like him having a "hidden potential" was hinted at since the first episode and him progressively transforming into the same thing as 02 is one of the most popular fan theories.
I fully expect that his heart has fused with claxcore.

Gavin Watson

Hiro was 100% sure he was going to die on the third ride. He didnt know his situation was at all different from anyone elses. So as much as he wanted to ride with 02 while he could, he knew he would be gone after this battle and 02 would just get another partner like always, he doesnt have as much information as we do.
So after he figures hes won the battle, he just sorta gives in since he knows hes doing to die and just wanted to tough it through till the end.

Up until now, Hiro has been wanting to ride a FranXX because he is told its his only purpose in life. His goal was to pilot one until he died, and while 02 is a fasttrack to the death part, she's also his only way to ride a FranXX, he figured that he was only relying on 02 because he's been told she can ride a FranXX by herself. As far as he was concerned, his joyride was over so that was that.

It wasnt until after realizing that 02 might actually need him as much as he needs her that he had the resolve to not just accept the assumption that he was going to die.

I think I could have gotten what I was trying to say out in less words but whatever.

Cooper Gomez
Cooper Gomez

Here's why:
That blue cancer is not some kind of curse that only goes away if you accept 02, neither she gives it to her partners to the point of spawning a fucking massive blue mass on their chests (I do know that it might still be possible though, since that big dude from ep1 was covered), it is just that inside Strelitzia, both the pistil and the stamen share and mix blood.
The catch here is that 02, being (a big) part dino, has a lot of dino cells (YBC?) on her, when absord by the stamen, it causes a big rejection by the stamen's body, which is harmful and potentially lethal.
Looking at Mitsuru after piloting, and assume part of his bleeding comes from this, we can see that only on his first ride he was a lot more strained than Hiro ever was after his first ride (Hiro was fine and had no tumor on his chest during the bath scene).
So the catch here is: Hiro is a special specimen that was modified to "absorb" and "process" YBC.
If we check his blood tests again (and ignore a bit of its discrepancies, pretending it to be legit), we can see that his body is not actually trying to fight this mutation, he also has no external or internal injuries like the other two pilots and is usually just lacking oxigen (heavy breath, body temperature).
This is also why APE didn't want 02 to "mix" with Hiro:
he can absorb and process her YBC
thus, he eases and controls her Dino side to normal levels
which causes her performance as superpilot to drop
Hiro's body accepting her dino cells while the other pilots don't is also part of
opposite reaction
Other stamens get their blood "stolen" or taken by 02 (being devoured) causing their YBC count to drop, while Hiro process and absorb/transforms her blood himself causing his YBC count to rise.

See? it was a backpedal in his character for the sake of plot and shamefully that comes out as generic.
Hiro himself said it was ok if he died in previous episodes, since not piloting is the same as being dead to him, he piloted with 02 3 times which which is what people expect from her partners, so I don't see any regression there
Flashback to an already dead character and somehow said character happens to know the MC even better than himself and his ''brother / sister''
she was his partner, she must have known him very well and he failed her, she appearing in an hallucination isn't far fetched, come on, it isn't that deep

About this: I don't think Hiro was on some death zone.
Remember that we have loliOni and someone holding hands? Those trees might actually be from Hiro's memories.
That is, that whole scene is played inside Hiro's mind (since its played both on when Naomi is offing herself on that pod, and on those weird as fuck trees), he wasn't dead (well, he actually wasn't at that point), that also means that Naomi calling his shit is his sub-counscious calling him out.

They took four in a couple of seconds, which would mean that they wouldn't take a lot more than half an hour to wipe out all those Conrads

Levi Wilson

I could see this happening, she gets a name at the next climax. In ep6 we got the Jian, the next high point will almost surely have something important happening between them once again.

Don't even bother replying to clearly false bait. Such posts can only be intentional or actual retards and it's not worth engaging either way.

Why did they have to put the controls on the girls themselves?
Would it not make more sense for the handles to be part of the franxx?

Tyler Taylor

One sided loves exist all over the place in fiction and in real life. Just because every girl in high school wants to fuck chad, doesnt mean chad is living in a harem anime.

To turn on weebs. Trigger knew that the writing was so weak for this show that they need something to keep the brainlets watching.

Samuel Murphy

reference other successful mecha shows
why do people act as if darling is the only one that does this? also try to pass it as a negative. Referencing other mecha shows is a thing almost every mecha anime does.

John Gray

A love triangle does not a harem make.
If Hiro and maybe Goro were the sole males in the cast and all the other female pilots wanted to fug him then you would have a harem.
See; Vandread

Thomas King

You sure you know what "harem" means?

Brody Ramirez
Brody Ramirez

Mostly because its quirky / memorable / fun. Though if you want an in-universe explanation, the handles basically connect directly to the girls spine and brain, could handwave it as something as silly as avoiding latency by not having the data go through the FranXX first and just go directly from Stamen to Pistil.

"But that's the theme of the show"
"So it makes sense an emotion can mend metal and cure AIDS!"
Every damn time. Explain how then the leader of the second team ran out of fuel. Did he stop loving his partner in the middle of battle?

Kevin Bell

if 02 died
Kek, some faggot said he would drop the show if anyone died. Imagine the meltdown on Cred Forums if 02 died. There would be 50 threads.

drains the people she pilots with, becoming more human in the process
with Hiro she actually shares her dino aids gradually transforming him into an oni hybrid too and they both reach some sort of equilibrium where they can pilot together without hurting or draining each other

The point is to tell the message that you should get over someone who you feel unrequited love for and find someone who actually cares for and thinks of you in a romantic sense.

Charles Sanders
Charles Sanders

fiction
So nothing is out of bounds in this story? The power of love is some panacea? If an emotion can mend metal, why can't it solve world hunger as well? Just magically send every dino to the center of sun? Is there no upper bounds to problems that the writers can't use the power of love to solve?

Ayden Wood

Explain how then the leader of the second team ran out of fuel. Did he stop loving his partner in the middle of battle?
What the fuck? The fuel they were referring to was magma fuel speedwatcher. Not only did the blue aids come as suddenly as it disappeared, they could very well explain why it disappeared later, if it even did. In episode 4 no one knew Hiro had the blue thing, and there it was in episode 5. The same could be done with episodes 6 and 7.

This is not at all his character. He is not misunderstood he just want have a single purpose in life and if he can't upfill that purpose he may as well die.

Joseph Rivera

Nigger, they're literally powering giant robots with the power of love. Maybe this show is too much for your autistic brain.

Henry Price

If you say so, but take out the mecha in FranXX and it'll play out like your generic harem/love triangle show, complete with the forced drama of protag acting dense as fuck around the two girls.

Jack Bailey
Jack Bailey

Ichigo isnt Hiro's wife though. There isnt even an in-universe waifu war, Hiro does not see Ichigo romantically at all. Its just an unrequited love, which you're obviously going to have in a series with love-powered mecha alongside plenty of other romantic drama cliches.

Justin Russell

And we didn't need 6+ episodes of tons of screentime to do that

Does your autism prevent you from understanding that it takes a while to get over someone you’ve desired since childhood?

Cooper Collins

So 02's kiss to Hiro was to imprint him that she owns her from thereon, so when Hiro got kissed by Ichigo it triggered the cancer which tested Hiro's faithfulness so when he resolved to give his life for her is when the blue cancer subsided. post your crazy theory Cred Forums

Andrew Bailey
Andrew Bailey

So you think she needs the third most screentime in the show, almost as much as Hiro or 002, just to get that across?

Yeah sure, whatever.
We’re only a quarter of the way through the fucking show, I’m pretty sure everyone else is gonna get development.
Miku and Motome are up next.
