Tytania Episode 15 Does Not Exist

There is no Tytania episode 15 and I refuse to entertain the notion that there is such a thing as a Tytania episode 15.  Tytania in fact goes straight from episode 14 to 16 and there is no such occurence as Fan and Bal’ami going to their caves to find their power lolis so that they can overcome a loss that has already been overcome.  The whole idea is just too proposterous and clearly has no place in something like Tytania and I will hear none of it.  Hence we shall continue on to episode 16 shortly here at Anime History and there will be no further mention of any sort of  Tytania episode 15 from this point forward on my part since it does not exist.

That said Ghostlightning might be stopping by at some point to blog about an episode 15 of something or other.  You are free to acknowledge his ravings about a Tytania episode 15 if you want, but I don’t buy it.  I recall watching some show about a pink haired loli and “Hero” shacking up in an Uncle Tom’s cabin and some Aryan dude coming back from the dead to accomplish nothing of value, but I certainly don’t recall it being Tytania because that sort of stuff doesn’t happen in Tytania, it happens in Xenosaga.

    Just face it, Tytania is crap. This sort of thing might not belong in Legend of Galactic Heroes, but Tytania is certainly not Legend of Galactic Heroes.

    True, Tytania so far has been nothing but a huge disappointment. A pity but the only redeeming feature is the power struggle for the title of Clan Lord.

    You make it sound as if Ziggy did nothing and had no point in the Xenosaga series.

    Otherwise, I’m growing disappointed with Tytania. It started off interesting to watch, but it’s just not holding up to what I had hoped. That might be because of this episode leaving a bad taste in the mouth though. Episodes like these really kill the enjoyment I find in this type of show.

    @Sorrow-Kun: Yeah…..I know, but it had a great run for a while. At this point I don’t see it recovering and I’m just blogging it in order to finish things up, but I can safely say after 5 or so bad episodes in a row that the show is more or less over for me. I think it’s possible that we are beyond the point where Tanaka’s novels cut off and that they are making up the series as they go now since this does not seem like the work of Tanaka and it seems more like they are filling the gaps between this and the final episodes so that they can introduce some sort of ending.

    @ZI: Lira has killed the show more or less by not only being a poorly executed character, but a character that just refuses to stop showing up constantly even after she died. If the scene with her showing up in place of Karen singing that stupid song was supposed to be poignant I just found it laugh out loud funny and unsettling instead.

    Really I’ve given up hope that Fan will ever stop fretting about Lira in the most irritating of places and it’s pretty much dragged his side of the story down to the depths of such utter mediocrity that they seemingly felt the need to throw in a loli in order to generate interest in it. It didn’t work.

    @Zack: Again blame Fan and his dead girlfriend for dragging things down to this level. Seeing as there’s barely any Tytania power struggle going on this time it was kind of a done deal.

    If Tytania were 109 episodes like LoGH, this really ‘slow’ beginning could be justified, especially if viewed in light of a marathon screening after it all airs. If it is though actually 26 episodes as ANN seems to think (and considering there’s only 3 novels vs LOGH’s 10 volumes), I can’t believe we’re only 10 eps from the end and still ‘nothing’ has happened.

    Lira is one thing, but she was just a weak plot device. I think the way bigger problem in this show is that they have such a horribly weak character, Fan, in the lead role. Really, at this point, it’s so hard to care what happens to Fan. If Fan were just some side story and they focused most of their time on Tytania, it would have been much more interesting, but instead they’ve set Fan up as an integral part of Tytania’s downfall, and they’re telling the story largely from his point of view. Who cares if he’s supposed to be a tactical genius, he rarely shows it. He only defeated Alses (Arses, tee hee) because Idris let him.

    I think we got too hyped up about this because it’s based on one of Tanaka’s works, but not everything he writes turns into gold. He wrote Yakishiji Ryoko, and the anime was ok, but nothing great (certainly not an example of brilliant writing, in my eyes). The only thing that’s keeping this show from mediocrity is the scheming between Jouslain and Idris (I know I just said this show is crap, but that’s an exaggeration of what I really think); pretty much everything that happens not involving the top levels of Tytania is utterly bland and sometimes even silly.

    @Epi: Well it’s no excuse but this is an unfinished novel series. Anyway, I certainly don’t get the impression that Tytania is anywhere near the verge of collapse as a major space empire that has lasted eons. There was this one quote I heard about this sort of thing off of the Gundamn!@MAHQ podcast a little while back, and I hope I am getting this right, it goes something like “It took longer for the Roman Empire to fall then it took to create it”. Tytania is sort of like the Roman Empire in a way, majestic, powerful, proud and seemingly unopossable on just about every level, and when you consider the quote from the narrator that at this point it is hard to imagine a universe without Tytania you get the impression they have been around for a long long time. Thus I just cannot see one man, no matter how brilliant he is supposed to be, bringing it to it’s knees in less than 10 episodes at what is still the height of it’s power.

    @Sorrow-Kun: I have nothing to reply with really, I think you pretty much nailed it right there.

    Actually wait, I think Ajman makes for a complex character along with Jouslain and Idris, in showing how a Clan Leader handles things. With him it never seems like it’s anything personal when he makes a harsh decision or let’s somebody learn a harsh lesson through their own actions, it’s just business and putting what’s best for Tytania first.
