Hello, I just want to tell you how much I appreciate this blog for all the meta posts and neutral analysis. Each week after watching the new episode I always come here to read you guys’ thoughts, it’s really interesting and also makes the story more enjoyable. I would like to share with you some thoughts inspired by the director’s tweets. There’s two pics of spoiler we can see featuring a giant robot, according to the file number marked at the top left corner we can know it’s gonna happen in
 the next episode(13). One of the picture shows that giant robot is fighting with dragon Nina. I assume the robot is controlled by Charioce, ‘cause the design is different from other robot soldiers we saw before: the helmet and all the armor design looks just similar to Charioce’s armor. In pv2 there’s a scene about a giant hand transformed from Charioce’s weapon firing at God’s ship, and a scene showing the collapse of God’s battleship, which may caused by Charioce or dragon Nina.
 So in my opinion the war is gonna end soon and humankind will win(at least not quite fail), or maybe Nina will destroy both God’s and Charioce’s weapon (judge from a scene of pv3)? But taken from last episode’s hint I have a bad feeling that the incomplete secret weapon will influence Charioce itself (mentally or physically), and the second half story might focus on this part (aka Charioce’s side story).
 What’s more, in one of the interview the character designer said episode 20 will be very dark and sad, I think it might have something to do with it. Maybe in the end the Demons and Gods will have to unite in order to fight against ballistic Charioce…? And Nina has to make a choice between this. (From the interview with the voice actress of Nina, she said according to the director, SNB is about how people will do while facing extreme decision making.)
 Just some crazy thoughts in my mind. (To me, it’s either Charioce or El will lose control in the end……) Oh! Also the spoiler with Chris is going to happen in episode 16( judging from the file name again, this one is quite blurry but still legible, which can be seen from the pic in the right screen), but I think it may be something about his past, because somehow that Chris looks a bit younger than now to me and his hair seems much shorter too.
(Sorry for the break off, have to wait for an hour to finish this. ಠ_ಠ)  However it may turns out that I’m mistaken since there’s color confetti in the background… so maybe it’s a scene from the victory parade over the war with God? Anyway according to the staff, next episode will be the key and definitely very epic!Sorry for the long comment, just want to share some thoughts running in my mind these days… hope it didn’t bother you. And keep up all the good work! Best wishes.
WOW. Hello! To get started, I want to thanks to you for sharing all your thoughts with me through this blog, it’s always really great to read this kind of things about the future development of the story coming from people like you, and in the case of everything have you shared, I’m seriously speechless.
Well, I will share some thoughts with you too and some images so the rest can see the point of which you are talking about.
When you started pointing out about the Charioce’s kind of mecha I feel that you were talking about this, and then, it becomes clearer if you look at the images that appear in the 2nd and 3rd PV.
It seems like indeed, Charioce is the one who start the attack again againsts the Gods using his secret weapon. And there’s one image of him:
At least that’s what I think since he’s using his armor. Plus, as you said Gods are gonna be defeated but we don’t know the reason until now, so, I think you have the correct point here, the winner of the “war” is gonna be Charioce.
Certainly, I totally agree with you, for Charioce to win the war against the Gods could have many consequences for his character, in every sense, starting with he once conquered the demons, but to defeat the Gods would bring an even greater new meaning to him and humankind, since they have always shown their power against humans. Without doubt, it’s the route that could follow the anime from now on.
I agree about the coming episode is gonna be very decisive in many ways and it’s gonna be longer too, because I have hear that there’s no opening/ending this week and the newest one are gonna be realized the next week (14th episode), so that’s means this episode is special and really important in every possible way. At the same time, it seems there’s a confrontation between Charioce and the red dragon, there are some hints about that in the pvs.
The possibilities of a change on Charioce’s attitude due to his victory against the Gods could bring many consequences and repercussions in all the characters, and the main one could be as you say, that the Gods and the demons have to join forces, once more, against someone they haven’t been able to overcome all alone. Although I must necessarily say that I do not like the idea that all seek Charioce’s sinking only to return to the glory they enjoyed a while ago, but that has always been the nature of the Gods and the demons, so is quite understandable, even more at this point.
From the beginning, that has been felt, about the extreme decisions that have had to take some characters, as it’s the case of Jeanne and her last decision to hide his son between the demons, before this one can be assassinated, so I won’t be surprised if more of such scenes await us in the future.
And finally, I certainly had not reached a resolution with that scene shown, I came to think of many times that it would be a flashback because I didn’t find another reason for being, but it’s as you say, possibly there will be some kind of celebration very similar to the one that there was for conquering the demons episodes before. I still have no a clear context or if is a younger version of him, or even if it’s him in the actual timeline, but I think it will be a matter of waiting until the 16th episodes arrives.
I do not think your thoughts are wrong, in fact they make a lot of sense, and even more so if you compare them with the PVs and you pay attention. I think everything depends on waiting a little longer for the next episode.
Once more, thank you for sharing your thoughts with me, and if you like to do it again, DO IT, I would seriously love to reading it, especially because you seem to know the language which I do not know, and I feel that sometimes it puts me at a disadvantage, but thanks to God there are still people like you.
Have a good day and thank you for dropping by. ♥ :’)
