    Sounds like a recap.

    I asked somewhere else and people replied that I was mistaken about where the distances were from.

    San Magnolia's capital is about 600-700 straight-line kilometers away from Giad's capital, if the anime map is to scale.

    That's still not very far for Americans...but okay. That's a full day of driving which seems like nothing to me.

    I just went to check out whether the source material has been completed yet, and I learned that

    1) they're still ongoing.

    2) we're still way early (like... book 2).

    I've heard we just started volume 3. Most LN readers state they were quite pleased that the previous season added so much meat to volume 1.

    But yeah, there's like 8.

    Hopefully we get a few more cours out of this.

    ep 17.5

    --------------




    The most exciting part was the model kit reveals. I like the Juggernaut better. The thin legs brings bring out the glass cannon feed.

    Eps 18
    ------------



    It's a really good thing that Frederica is a fairly good-natured 10 year old and not a vicious, manipulative monarch. Her esper ability gives her exactly the history she needs to cut deeply into anyone she's talking to and voice their most harbored insecurities right to their face. She tore right through Shinei about his brother and he was starting to crack. I can only imagine what her ancestors did with that power.

    I guess we also got confirmation that the General doesn't racistly hate the 86ers, though his subordinates sure as shit do. Wenzel also got a little more backstory so we learned why she wants to protect them so badly, but also why she isn't going to fight them, cry, or scream in an attempt to stop them once they've made their decisions to go to the front lines.

    I do not know if ekranoplans were ever used on land IRL because of the danger when something goes wrong. And immediately after the launch would kind of explain why.


    edit: The series has been seeing some increasing production issues. There's another recap immediately. Sounds like we're unlikely to see the end of this arc this season.

    Question: How much cargo space does Fido have?

    Answer: enough for one Frederica.

    Yeah, the ammo cases are very large.

    The moment that Anzu and Kurena mentioned Frederica had barricaded herself in her room in protest, someone, maybe even Wenzel should have said, "she's probably already on the plane but we can't change our schedule to search for her."

    700km is roughly the route you have to *drive* from Berlin to Vienna
    Or Berlin <> Amsterdam
    Or Berlin <> Warsaw

    etc. etc.
    Seems like Europe to me and completely normal.
