Has anyone seen the dubbed episodes on Funimation? The first two episodes are free, but you need a paid account to watch the rest of the season. The dubs in episodes 1 and 2 seemed pretty bad imo. Obviously subs are better for solo watching, but I'd like to get some friends into the new series too. Do the dubs get any better?

I kind of interpreted it as saying that, even with all these incredibly unlikely events and circumstances leading up to it, the best possible absolute monarchy is still terrible for almost everyone else. And in the real world, we'd probably never get the same sequence of events leading up to it, so our monarchies are always even worse.

Likewise, as bad as the FPA's democracy was, we theoretically have the power to keep it together and improve upon it, as long as we don't grow complacent and cynical and assume that all is already lost.

I think it was mentioned that during the Empire's civil war, a lot of the rebels' strength came from nobles' private military forces. Between oppressing the peasants and keeping uppity nobles in line there seems like there was a significant drag on military resources just suppressing dissent at home. Like Kircheis being sent off to tell that guy who liked Rome too much to quit loving around seemed like it was portrayed as a fairly routine occurrence.So not only did their neo-feudalism sap their productive capacity through deindustrialization but it also made their society even more fractious despite all the violent repression that went into holding it up.

I assumed that the various nobles abusing their power for personal enrichment was a routine occurrence in the empire. The novel part here is that, rather than the other nobles trying to settle it with court intrigue or kanly, Reinhard used the organs of the state, under the command of a commoner. It was a way to test the waters for a larger campaign of subjecting the nobles in the interest of the state.

Reuenthal was born with heterochromia, so not artificial eyes. IIRC, the only character shown with artificial eyes in the OVA was Oberstein.

I don't know if this was ever officially stated, but I always assumed that Oberstein's eyes recorded video, possibly including sound. Was that the case, or were they just regular artificial eyeballs?

My original character do not steal includes fake eyeballs with the same weapon as Ansbach's ring.

I was really disappointed in the first two episodes of DNT, but otherwise it's all been really enjoyable. I hope they'll finish the whole series, Gaiden, and all of the movies (including Golden Wings).
