"Alex is a smart, funny, witty, dangerous and cautious person simultaneously. It’s not easy to get him ruffled. He’s got a razor-sharp wit. He has a firm sense of self. If you don’t have that sense, you’re easily knocked around." -Josh Homme about Alex Turner
It’s that time again… to remind you that ECCC has an anti-harassment policy.
Emerald City Comicon’s mission is to create a safe, awesome environment where geeks of all kinds can come together. We have a zero tolerance policy for harassment of any kind.
Harassment includes offensive verbal comments (related to race, gender, sexual orientation, body size, disability, appearance and religion), overly sexual images in public spaces, deliberate intimidation, stalking, harassing photography or recording, sustained disruption of talks or other events, inappropriate physical contact and unwelcome sexual attention.
Exhibitors, sponsors and guests are subject to our anti-harassment policy as well and have also been informed. In particular, exhibitors should not use images or material that surpasses a PG-13 rating at their booths. Booth staff (including volunteers) should not use over-sexualized clothing/uniforms/costumes.
If a person engages in harassing behavior, ECCC Directors and Department Heads may take any action they deem appropriate, up to and including expulsion from Emerald City Comicon (with no refund). If you are being harassed, witness someone else being harassed or have any other concerns, please contact a member of the Emerald City Comicon staff immediately (identifiable by green t-shirts or black polos/Staff badges). We are happy to contact our security or local law enforcement, provide escort, a safe place or otherwise assist those experiencing harassment to feel safe for the duration of the convention.
All attendees, exhibitors and staff are subject to this anti-harassment policy and are expected to follow these rules at all Emerald City Comicon events.
The new addition to the policy this year is the addition of a “Report a Problem” function on our mobile app. It’s located in the same menu as the Anti-Harassment Policy, and it’s an easy way to contact our staff. You can also visit either of our two Info Booths (fourth floor and sixth floor of the main convention center building).
Not sure why i still bother, but here’s one more speculation before the last episode:
OP shots & Foreshadowing
Now, so far almost every shot of the 2nd OP can be paralleled to something that happened. Some you’d have to use a bit of thinking (Lemrina dreaming of being on earth, walking as that time she wished she was free, Inaho reaching out to asseylum as, duh, him going after her etcetc) while others are cçear (space fighting deucalion crew=space fighting deucalion crew) and then there’s the two scens above: one from last week’s episode slaine and the other from the preview, which are almost cpy pasted from the OP.
So what you ask?
Well…the only shots that dont have an equivalent yet are:
The first is Tharsis and Inahos mecha destroyed ont he moon, which may imply either a bad end (most likely) or that war is over, no need for mechas anymore.
The other part without equivalent is Slaine and Inaho reaching out for something at the same time. Even as the season began we all assumed it would be asseylum, and at this point im sure everyone is probably still assuming the same. Of course, reaching out to it at the same time does not necessarily mean reaching out together. But hey, aldnoah writers dont seem to care about pulling out asspulls (see: important character introduced 3 episodes before the end) so inaho and slaine only working out in the very last goddamn episode is still likely
It is interesting to note the preview of the last episode happens to be the first time Inaho and Slaine voice one…and in the end they voice the very last bit together.
Ladies and gentlemen: will aldnoah writers pull through with the subtle foreshadowing suggested in this post, or will they disappoint us and go a with a bad plot again? We shall soon find out.
