#Eureka7 ep19: the most powerful phrase in anime, "mamoru". #anime 

You really want to tell Holland to back the hell off right here.
Eureka and Holland were almost broken in this episode, not to mention
left for dead (though they don't know that). And here Holland is
threatening Renton with god-knows-what after his seeing something VERY
strange. It's beyond obvious that he has some growing to do, and
demons to vanquish. But he's just seems to be wallowing in his
inadequacies. Good thing he has a great girlfriend to help keep him
in line.

Aside from my bitching about Holland for probably the fifth episode in
a row, I really enjoyed this episode. You don't really know what
Eureka's trying to do, but when she does it it kicks the episode into
another gear. All of a sudden Renton's running off and the military
shows up in ridiculous numbers. And now Holland's faced with an
almost impossible choice.

And I hardly ever comment on acting in this medium, but it really
shined in this episode. Especially for Renton's voice actor (keep in
my I'm watching the dub, go ahead and boo me now). I always knew this
show was capable of excellent episodes, this is an excellent example.

Seeing as this is a rewatch, I'm prone to rediscover some things, but
there is something obvious that I didn't notice previously. Looks
like those trapars gave Renton a slight glimpse into his future. It's
like they were speaking to him. This episode really took some time to
speak to its characters. Poor Eureka got her Rei Ayanami moment when
she opened that wordless book. It was a beautiful scene that I guess
served as a primer for more trippy, and revealin scenes later in the
show. The show's not gonna let up though. If I remember right, if
Eureka got her Rei moment, then Renton's Shinji-esque moment is coming
up next.
