I like how that anime is simultaneously less and more sophisticated than some of its counterparts. The artstyle seems to lend itself a little more to a child's story (we have people being cut by swords though, so it's not really a kid show). On the other hand, the story is engaging and the characters have a funny collection of personal quirks. Overall, it feels a little more fairy tale-ish than usual, but it's a good kind of fairy tale.

That's why its title translated means tales of swords. :D

I KNOW that, Nick.  :p

I think it's the kinda anime I might show my kids someday.
Gendou Ikari is basically Gregory House in Kaminashades. This is FACT.

The tier system in a nutshell:
[spoiler]Tier 6: A cartographer.
Tier 5: An expert cartographer or a decent marksman.
Tier 4: An expert marksman.
Tier 3: An expert marksman, cartographer and chef who can tie strong knots and is trained in hostage negotiation or a marksman so good he can shoot down every bullet fired by a minigun while armed with a rusted single-shot pistol that veers to the left.
Tier 2: Someone with teleportation, mind control, time manipulation, intangibility, the ability to turn into an exact duplicate of anything, or the ability to see into the future with perfect accuracy.
Tier 1: Someone with teleportation, mind control, time manipulation, intangibility, the ability to turn into an exact duplicate of anything and the ability to see into the future with perfect accuracy.[/spoiler]

"Just what do you think the moon up in the sky is? Everyone sees that big, round shiny thing and thinks there must be something round up there, right? That's just silly. The truth is much more awesome than that. You can almost never see the real Moon, and its appearance is death to humans. You can only see the Moon when it's reflected in things. And the things it reflects in, like water or glass, can all be broken, right? Since the moon you see in the sky is just being reflected in the heavens, if you tear open the heavens it's easy to break it~"

[spoiler]Wait, what?! Nagi?! What the hell are you doing there? And it looks like Rakan, Eva, and Al all knew too.



Felt a little rushed, but it's nice to see this arc being brought to a conclusion.[/spoiler]

[spoiler]Rakan does, yes - which makes sense, since they were in his party. Eva most certainly doesn't. That's the look of someone who just shat as many bricks as the reader, not of someone who saw it coming. Tertium... I dunno, it looks like he might've known too. Well, MotB sort of was his boss.

WMG
[spoiler]When the MotB was revealed as Eva's "father", the face that we saw was very different, and Al described him as "imperishable" rather than "immortal". Possible that whoever defeats the current MotB gets to be the next one, possibly with some memory-uploading deal, or something like that.[/spoiler][/spoiler]
