The new series has blown my mind.

I will admit it feels alittle odd whenever someone gets killed in the show. I think its because back then the show only had robots getting killed and with the series being more adult, it feel alittle off. Its not a bad thing, in fact, I think it advances the plot pretty well since jack references that he's mostly been killing robots and when faced with actual people, it has a huge psychological affect on him.

eh i felt some of the stuff in it was just kinda fan service-y is all and i felt the last episode was better (they were similar but different) and though i liked the ending i kinda wish that the mysterious samurai was just in jack's head. Though i saw stuff about it on twitter and i was just kinda over hyped about it maybe. It isn't bad mind you just not my cup of tea.

I enjoyed episode seven a lot. However i dont think jack should've gotten his old design. I dunno why though, but good episode overall especially in sound design with the tea section

I agree, they should have come up with something new.

Well, this episode pissed off a lot of people, lol.

So, apparently, Ashi and Jack are now an official couple. Fans felt that it was rushed, and the sexual tension in the episode was cringe worthy. Personally, I was one of the fans who wanted them to be in a father/daughter relationship, but I was fine with either happening, since they have been through a lot together, and they have good chemistry, so it's whatever to me

My thoughts on the episode

I wouldn't have issues with this episode if it wasnt for the fact that jack is 70-80 years old. He might not look like it but the age gap is way to big for my tastes.

I'm glad Ashi is of age, but I can see where you're coming from.

Someone made a Usagi Drop comparison as a joke, but that's just insulting.

Usagi Drop had a clear father-daughter relationship between Daikichi and Rin for 80% the series, practically starting with Chapter 2 and completely on the level of Sweetness and Lightning and the like. Then Rin grew up and went to high school, and suddenly there's your excuse to show her what love means with a hetero romance plot between a girl and a man almost three times her age.

Ashi, in her interactions with Jack, was never viewed or depicted as being a child. Immature by comparison, but not innocent. From fighting ability to the actual skin-tight suit, she was an adult in all but mind, made even more apparent with her change of outfit.
Yeah, the kiss was waaay too sudden and forced, and the narrative might have benefited more from a father-daughter relationship, but it was only timing. If there was a romance to be had, it had to have been teased and built up BEFORE the episode where the kiss actually happened.


The difference is worlds apart. If you had told the audience of SamJack that
Ashi was going to be romantic love interest when Season 5 was just starting
, some would have been happy, others would have been disappointed, and most would say they saw it coming. If you had told the readers of UD that Rin and Daikichi were gonna get together by the end when the series had just started serialization, they would vomit, or think you have a really dark and not-okay sense of humor, and nobody could have ever seen it coming.

Shit man, that was a pretty heavy ending but at least now there is proper closure to the series
