    Sym-Bionic Titan
    Episode 14 -
    Number 115

    I Am Octus

    Opening: http://youtu.be/be9o3_kD1ls



    This week on Sym-Bionic Titan...
    As the world seems to come to an absolute standstill, Octus remains immune and tries to find the cause for the problem.

    Last time on Sym-Bionic Titan...
    Spoiler:
    Lance, Ilana, and Octus went deep into a swamp to find a Mutraddi that landed in the water. They investigated the crashed ship and were attacked by an amphibian-like Mutraddi that, after a seemingly easy kill, was able to bite Ilana and escape. Very slowly, she transformed into the creature and later attacked an alligator that was also mutated. Realizing her transformation was rapidly progressing, llana escaped from Lance and Octus, going deeper into the swamp. The duo soon caught up and found her under the Mutraddi's control. Seeing Lance and Octus, the creature emitted a call from its vocal sac, causing llana to complete her transformation. It also summoned its ship from the bottom of the swamp, so it could take Ilana back to Modula and gain a greater reward for bringing her alive. However, before they could leave, Lance killed the Mutraddi by using the Manus armor to leap up to the escaping ship and stabbing a Triton through the creature's chest, piercing its heart. When the creature died, the ship crashed and the psychic link between Ilana and the Mutraddi was severed. Ilana went into cardiac arrest for a period of time, but then her mutated heart restarted. With the link now severed, she reverted back to normal.



    Sym-Bionic Titan. Only Toonami.

    Behold, Abstract Expressionism!

    Data has a better concept of Art than Octus.

    Why is that every cartoon Paris seems to be stuck in a pre-WWI idyllic timeframe?

    Never dug the whole Pollock style. I guess I'm just like Octus in that regard.

    A flock of birds falling out of the sky. Well that's creepy.

    Okay, this time freeze is weird. People stop like statues, but everything else flows or drops.
    Maybe it isn't time.

    Abstract Expressionism was a way for the artist to express their emotions not through traditional symbols or subject matter. Instead it's purpose was to use the elements of art to directly represent the emotions of the artist. Instead of concrete objects (a happy face, flowers, etc), it uses color and line to represent the abstract, to give form to what can not be seen.

    Man, this episode is getting surreal.

    I know what it is. I understand the idea behind it. I'm just not into it.

    A giant bat. Of course.

    Does Octus dream of electric sheep? Or sheep in a splatter painting?

    Yeah, great idea - rapid firing the giant arrows of destruction that ruins the countryside.

    What is the measure of a robo-man-thing?

    I think this is my favorite episode so far. It was more like a character study than an action episode, and thats what i really enjoyed about it. It also reminded me of the minds***w episode of casshern a while back, which i really enjoyed as well. It seems pretty ambitious for a cartoon to try an episode like this, considering that it can be ratings suicide for that week. i think that's the reason I enjoy ST so much. I didn't watch it first run, and I didn't understand the following behind it when it came to toonami. but i gave it a chance, and so far it doesn't turn out to be the typical action cartoon. it seems more adult, more willing to take risks with the content they show. I really hope this show gets another season.

    Hmm awesome episode, shows why Octus is awesome. An handful of episodes when is the awesome hero. Go Octus.

    Though I would think when everyone was fozen in time, he would check up on Kimmy and make sure she's okay.

    Octus is my favorite character in this series, so any episode focused on him automatically gets a plus in my book. I do like how it focuses on Octus questioning what he is through art pieces and then when he's the only one left unaffected by the monster. It's a nice and interesting way to give him development. It does seem weird that Kimmy wasn't mentioned or shown since one would think he'd be worried about her too and his feelings for Kimmy could help him to realize that he isn't just a robot.

    Or you just splatter a bunch of paint on a canvas and call it art.

    I'm still trying to understand why that was the world's most expensive painting up until last year. (Seriously.)

    Anyone can splatter paint on canvas. But the difference between Pollock and most people was that he knew what he was doing and why.

    In either case, his work opened new vistas of equally influential and baffling conceptual art movements.

    That was the biggest draw of this episode - we got into the mind of a machine man. Sure, the animation was great, and the battle was interesting, but the plot was a bit iffy (so everything is the fault of Space Bat?) But learning about Octus is well worth the viewing.

    I was kind of hoping they'd actually explain how the Bat-monster had the ability to do that to the Earth..
