>>137545059 I was spoiled on this so this scene did make me feel a weight in my gut but I didn't cry. UNTIL, the beginning of the next episode when Julian found him and started callling himself useless and a failure, and I kept expecting for Yang to tell Julian it's ok its not his fault, that he wasn't a failure and made him proud, but Yang never did. He did say anything he just kept sitting there so peacfully oh man i cried bitch tears, then it happened again when Mrs.Yang went on about how he didn't deserve to go out like that, he should've died an old man, reading a book relaxing in the sun, his grandchild would go to wake him up and there would be no response that's how he should've gone out fuckkk
>>137545582 It's been awhile but I think he wanted to ensure that both the empire and alliance were embroiled in unending war to mire them in financial trouble. He planned to use the terraists to destabilize the alliance in which case he hoped to sweep in and take control. That and he wanted to piss off his bastard son.
>>137545749 Because ramming the other fleet was literally the only tactic he had. >Oh, Yang's forces are trying to lure me into Iserlohn and negate our numerical advantage? >Better pull a Varro and charge STRAIGHT INTO THE FUCKING TRAP resulting in half your fleet getting annihilated
>>137545749 Bittenfield wasn't always a jobber. He had previous reputation of being a badass and only lost when Yang Wenli was Admiral. The entire last season he was kicking ass. The point of the Black Lancers was that they would attack even when everyone else was retreating. When he wasn't put up against the Magician, he did alright.
>>137545577 Yeah the last season was an uphill battle to get through. If only Kircheis had lived, it probably would have been amazing.
>>137546114 The armor deflects lasers from guns, which makes it very useful against conventional forces that are guarding ships, bases and that sort of thing. It also provides solid defense when they deploy Zephyr particles and engage conventional forces in close quarters combat.
>>137546308 but yeah the terraist all had almost weak frail bodies because of all the drugs they took in and were more busy trying to snackbar the Panzergrenadiere than doing shit to them. Also compare the body size differences
>>137546588 Well don't think the Terraist would let non hardcore members have any weapons of any kind so probably was a kitchen knife. Also, panzergrenadier lifted him no effort with one hand and put him to the ground and ended his snackbaring right there. Even the axe is bigger
>>137546808 Reuenthal's finale was amazing. Yang Wenli was this unbeatable super hero, a magician, a saint. When I cried for him it was because I empathized with the people closest to him, like Julian. But Reuenthal was majorly flawed. He was basically a compilation of flaws that was a able to get much farther than his own ambition and skill was able to take him. I could connect with him. His final battle wasn't like the previous battles, which were more akin to the clashing of titans (The Magician, Reinhard). It was a battle between mortal men driven by principle and not destiny. It felt the most real.
>>137547117 He could have lived by saying sorry to the Kiaser. Thus died like a bitch, Didn't help that the raped the woman that tried to kill him INMEDIATLY after the fact and that he let her roam his house free
>>137547159 Reuental didn't apologize because he wanted to fight the Kaiser and die in battle. He'd let his previous chances slip by, but he made good on his last one. He ended up facing Mittermeyer instead though, and then being cheated out of a fair fight by traitors in his ranks. It's unfortunate, but he died satisfied and that's what mattered in the end.
>>137547554 No. Mittermeyer and his wife couldn't have kids, so Reuental gave them his child. That let his best friend have the family life he always wanted, and guaranteed that his child wouldn't have the shitty home life that was typical of the von Reuental family.
>>137547159 Apologizing to the Kaiser in that situtation was never something Reuenthal could have done. His pride wouldn't allow it. He had been forced into a role and he felt that the only way to retain his pride was to fulfill that role to the best of his ability.
>>137547554 No. There's no indication that Reuenthal ever fucked Mrs Mittermeyer. Thus Mittermeyer was not cucked.
He was a loyal soldier fighting a war that the Alliance tried very hard to lose. It was his dedication and his service which led to war attrition throughout the known galaxy and eventually caused all peoples to tire of war. He personally defeated whole armadas, but his legend helped defeat the romantic dream of galactic war - at least for a time.
>>137548303 Yang was an alcoholic lazy bum that weaponized his autism from reading a shitload of history, entirely bound to ideology. Reinhard was removing a totalitarian asshole government (he himself had experienced it - his sister, the nobles raping a girl, people getting nuked, etc.)
Well he never wanted to be a soldier to begin with; so it makes sense that he didn't treat war like a typical soldier. In this way he mirrored Siegfried, since the latter also only served to protect the things closest to him and not to prosecute wars. Generally, leniency also allowed both generals to avoid fruitless battles on some occasions.
>>137548303 Reinhard has his virtues as well. While arrogant, he grasped what no man should or could, and held it tight for even an instant. He's an ideal for me, of what it is to be a conqueror. Not only does he conquer the universe, but he does it while burning his own body as fuel. That for me is admirable about him. His chief virtue is his spiritual and physical strength.
Reinhard is a career reformer. He was a conqueror because he recognized the establishment to be completely broken and it was the only way to fix law and order. If there was a more feasible or optimal route to achieving those same goals, he would have taken it. But in that universe, the military regime affected all aspects of governance and society.
In a functional galactic society, both Reinhard and Siegfried would have been great politicians, judges, or anything that has to do with investigation and management.
>>137548159 >Become the largest asshole in space, beating out that guy who is gutting the democratic planet using every loophole in the book >Develop super brain tumor and have your smokin' hot babe gradually realize you're a fuck >kill your only son because he was annoying as shit >hire space cult terrorists filled with lunatics to make everyone's lives more difficult and potshot the smartest man in space >get buttmad when you die so your death sets off bombs throughout a capital killing nobody important Rubinsky...had a hard life...
To be fair, it was his own damn fault for mismanaging his son and even bringing him into his business. He could have easily had his son sent away to a resort space station, where he would have undoubtedly become an excellent corporate executive. But Rubinsky was a twisted individual who only began contemplating his legacy long after squandering his son's growth.
>>137548950 Rubinsky did literally everything wrong, and he would be a tragic character like Yang or Reinhard (to a degree), but he was 100% evil in his actions and his only goal was to make cash. I don't even think he wanted the Phezzan to succeed, just him specifically.
Phezzan was successful long before his promotion. He just ended up pocketing most of Phezzan's profits for his own ambitions instead of continuing the old business as a money laundering front for the Earth Cult. And why not? In the old galactic order, Phezzan's money decided galactic trends.
But just as there were no real checks and balances on either of the galactic governments, there were also no real checks and balances on the governing entity of Phezzan.
