It’s been a short run, but Thunderbolt has cemented itself as one of the most spectacular and devastating entries in the Gundam franchise. No matter how beautiful the action may have appeared, it always demonstrated the brutality of war and the damage it does to those swept up in its madness.

I was prepared to get all teary eyed at the prospect of saying goodbye to this wonderful series, but thankfully there is no need. This episode was more a new beginning than a conclusive ending, and it all works out because a second season has been confirmed!

Even now, at the finale, are we sure, absolutely sure, that Musaigen no Phantom World is not just making it up as it goes?

Good luck deciding, you bastard.
I wasn’t planning on watching this series. I had planned to introduce it and be done, as much because I was sure we’d once again get half of the story and never see the rest. Yet I kept watching it, because there’s something comforting in the familiar story, and for whatever its failings, Undefeated Bahamut Chronicle is one step above. One step above average, granted, but that’s something.

Relaxing after Third Impact.

For a show that went completely under the radar (at first) for me, I’ll probably never get over just how much I loved this show.

Whatever that second season turns out to be, I certainly hope it focuses heavily on McGillis because a season of him screwing over people sounds like Tekketsu no Orphans‘ most compelling option by far.

「宣戦布告」 (Sensen Fukoku)
“Declaration of War”
What a season it has been – there’s been laughs, drama, plenty of development across the cast, and it all ends with the beginning of what is bound to be the best showdown to date.

The ending wasn’t delivered exactly the way I expected. How did the series live up to everyone else’s expectations?
