    Casshern's ratings finally had a week where they went UP as opposed to down on the 21st. Could Casshern finally be turning a corner, or . . . well, do people want to devour Casshern as much as the robots do?

    Whatever the case, we won't know the answer this week. That's because . . . Casshern's kinda not in it. :sweat:

    Last week was one of my favorite episodes, but with Casshern supposedly not in this one, I'm curious to see how this one fares.

    Maybe it will feel like the plot is moving along in this episode. Don't fail me Dio.

    Last time: The doctor is out...permanently.

    "Casshern...your blood has changed me."
    So Luna didn't die immediately? It was a slow, gradual death?

    "Camelot."
    "Camelot!"
    "CAMELOT!"
    "It's only a model..."
    "Shh!"

    Casshern is the only robot who cannot ruin, so he will live forever while everyone he knows and loves turns to dust.
    Why does everyone want to kill and/or eat him? That life alone is sufficient punishment.

    So are we done with meeting these random people every week that may or may not die?

    Dio seems a lot more blue than the last time we saw him.

    Dude, she's giving you some pretty strong signals. Go for it.

    Last time I saw someone named Dio in an anime, he was an albino Vanship pilot who kept hitting on the male lead.

    Something about Luna's former guard and all that jazz.

    Current Theory: The woman is somehow related to/is Luna.

    His name is Dune, and apparenlty he was Luna's personal guard.
    Wow, he's really aged, and his title really fits him now.

    What, so he's a Shinigami?
    Kill him quick before he drags this show down with his mundane hobbies and interminable battles with his funny-looking sword.

    THANK YOU DUNE, BUT YOUR PRINCESS IS IN ANOTHER CASTLE.

    So Dio used to be a fanatical Texas Longhorns fan?

    Gotta hand it to Dio; at least it looks like he's going steady.

    "Second Coming of the Great Viking Boss"?

    And if I'm elected, I will put an end to Casshern and his ruinous policies! The robots of tomorrow will never look back!

    So. Death lives. If only for a moment longer.
