There's not. This "well they did say she can't from 02's own mouth but she could be lying/stupid/deluded/tricked for reasons" is fucking retarded and you should be embarrassed. Your parents are embarrassed on your behalf and you will never find love and acceptance even from a dog. They never proved conclusively that the kids weren't in the Matrix and that the whole show wasn't a dream Mikuru had. That's why she seemed to have no purpose! She was actually the main character.

Think about it this way:
Who would have told her that?
It would either be APE (who is known to lie to her, and everyone else), someone on behalf of APE, or Werner, who would probably tell her that specifically so they didn't have another mitsukoko wedding crashers situation on their hands, OR because being pregnant would probably negatively affect your ability to pilot, and she was the single best pilot they had.

There probably isn't ever going to be any official material set after the epilogue so you might as well consider Mato's final comic as canon because we're probably not going to get anything else.

They're both good and while the ending left a little bit of a sour taste in my mouth (just because even if we all know what is going to happen i'd like to SEE it, like ep 15), you have to admit the reincarnation and loving each other forever thing is the better deal outside of immortality.

At least she didn't get completely Nia'd.

Yep. The most emotion I had at this episode was a mix between rage and sadness at Hiro's last scribbled image in the story book. The one thing that really pulls on you emotionally, and Ichigo scoffs at it.

This discussion about 02 being fertile or not has made me realize, what if she was indeed fertile? Then that would mean:

>1.She never had sex with Hiro thus he died a Virgin like many believe.
>2.They did have sex but Hiro's seed was so weak he was unable to impregnate her
Anyway in my personal opinion i believe she was infertile because she said it herself and was never brought up again by any character on the show. So it was like Nishi saying it himself

Finally got to watch the second special and man what Nishigoro says at the end makes a lot of sense after watching the finale. Basically he just went with what he believed in. This project was done for him specially and the ending are his beliefs. People hating on the ending should at the very least, try to understand that
>>
>>175485629
I think it was probably Franxx who told her, but im not sure if he ever accounted for hiros klauxx sperm.
No point discussing it. Given the ending, it was clear niggergori planned her to be sterile and reincarnate her anyway.

it was such a wasted potential, given that she was plastered with fertility symbols only in that episode, her talk that people lied to her about her biology and her statement that she thought she couldnt have children because of her Klaxo nature (given that 01 said that they are fertile, until they fully merged). looking back it was just another point of "filthy bakemono cant have a happy life unlike ningens"

it didn't actually give Hiro or 02 any sort of power up though. It was just them sending their prayers up to 02 through an already established link.

Why would anyone bother with that? Reproduction was a banned topic, they didn't even test for it when they mindwiped Kokoro. Who in the hell would bother checking if it's possible to have children for her and why in the world would they talk to her about it? She can't have children because she's not human. For all we know she might not even have a vagina. Did you think that cloaca was a meme?
>>

She connects to the robot the exact same way humans do, with the exact same rules applied.
The only difference is 02 being sturdy enough to not instantly die in Stampede.
Her connection to Apus is different, though.

Who told you that they had any organs at all. Klaxxo may work completely differently and our sexual organs may be just an imitation of what klaxxo had to pilot Franxx.

>What safety are you talking about if nobody even knows about reproduction being a thing?
Kids don't know.
Everyone else does.
She's not your ordinary kid, she's a Nine.
And she's the Key.
The only single one they ever made.
Why not produce more if you can?

Humans and dinos are similar species.
Hence why FranXX works like an LFO with a woman instead of a Compac Drive.
>>
>>175486594
Nines are imperfect clones.
>>
>>175486718
And are still clones. Plus, we never saw what happened in the cockpit in episode 1, so it's safe to assume that 02 can pilot in both positions. This means that she's ermaphrodite like the Nines.
>>
>>175486715
>Humans and dinos are similar species
Source? Just because human male+female connection can imitate that of dinos does not make them similar.
>>
>>175486693
They literally have standard protocols regarding fucking pregnancy of all things.
Kids are not allowed to reproduce because who the fuck wants a soldier caste with clear goals besides dying on the battlefield?
>>
>>175486733
>And are still clones
Irrelevant. We know that they are imperfect which means something is wrong you can't claim that you know which part is wrong. For all we know their reproduction system could be what separates perfect clone from Nines.
>>
>>175486741
Stop speedwatching episode 21.
FranXX are excavated klaxxo wrecks modified to be piloted by humans, which are genetically similar to dinos.
Basically an LFO but you use a female instead of a Compac Drive.
>>
>>175486745
US has protocol on fighting zombies. What does it matter? Nobody of main cast including 02 were supposed to know anything about reproduction. Most likely she saw the book Kokoro was talking about. Or just talked to her and looked inside her own panties just to find that it's all fucked up down there.
>>
>>175476102
It's literally just deja vu anon. Everything that reminds them of their past life will just be that.
>>
>>175486759
>we never saw what happened in the cockpit in episode 1, so it's safe to assume that 02 can pilot in both positions. This means that she's ermaphrodite like the Nines
There's a reason they hid it, and that's because 02 is an ermaphrodite.
>>

Speculation.
>>
>>175486800
>Nobody of main cast including 02 were supposed to know anything about reproduction.
02 is part of the 9s.
She knows everything she'd ever want to know.
No rules apply to her, she can be APE Gestapo, too.
>>
>>175486843
Explain why they never had sex then? They had ample amount of time.
>>
>>175486825
Based on facts.
>>
>>175486745
They literally experimented with Franxxes for decades. Have you seen all the name on the wall in the episode 19? Of course, there would be someone pregnant. And of course, there're ways to stop being pregnant. It's not necessary for that to be an everyday occurrence, for the information being available in the archives.
>>

Aliens living on the dark side of the moon is a speculation based on facts. It's just a speculation. She could not have children and that's the fact you have to live with. Everything else is wishful thinking "based on facts".

Just kill yourself already.
It's like episode 17 shitposting.
While both dinos are dead until the retcon movie.
>>
>>175486681
You're a retard. The 9s were specifically made as hermaphrodites, that's all.
Ignoring the fact that we clearly saw that 02 doesn't have a dick in episode 1, why is she always piloting in the pistil seat, and why did she kill only 100 stamen, in other words, 100 men? Because she's a woman, she has a vagina. If she truly was an hermaphrodite then she would've piloted with women too, taking the position of a stamen just like Delta, you gigantic retard.

Tell me this, brainlet. Why would they not want more of what is essentially their best pilot? 02 as a battle unite is essentially a failure, because you can't control her properly, why not try to make more of her by any means possible? You don't need to tell her that sex is "when one person loves the other person so much..." to make a broodmare for perfect soldiers out of her. Let alone the fact, that when she was a mere child and hakase was making holes in her hands, it wasn't clear that she would be an amazing franxx pilot yet, right? She was just a mere test subject - a valuable one, mind you - but a test subject. Her sole reasons for existence were to provide more information about Klaxxos and to make Hakases pop one. He would want more test subjects, he's not a person to follow Papa's orders to the letter and he's really fucking fascinated with Klaxxos.

Mono no aware (物の哀れ), literally "the pathos of things", and also translated as "an empathy toward things", or "a sensitivity to ephemera", is a Japanese term for the awareness of impermanence (無常 mujō), or transience of things, and both a transient gentle sadness (or wistfulness) at their passing as well as a longer, deeper gentle sadness about this state being the reality of life.

So yes, he did mean it to happen how it happened. The story was meant to be a bittersweet tale about the sorrow and inevitability of time moving on, right from the start.

I was guessing that, especially as we got to the last episodes. Still doesn't make it stop hurting.

They lost their magic. The reason they fell in love with each other was that they were dazzling and unique jewels in a grey world, but now that the world is back on track there is no reason for that to occur, since Hiro is no longer the only kid with a sense of self among drones, and 02 is not an abused war abomination who wanted nothing other than a proper emotional connection. The only thing these two new "instances" have are a vague sense of attraction that they can't quite place.
Everything unique about them is absolutely gone and I hate it so much. This last episode murdered not only what they had, but also Hiro's character, which up to 22 was a gem: he needed his friends thoughts and prayers to get back up when he already did it in three occasions before, and the third one was arguably worse:
>beat a tumor and absorbed it into himself because fuck me, my wife is suffering
>challenge an army of monsters on a cardboard mech and get enough balls to tell his wife to stop being a wreck and let him love her
>single-handedly prevented a huge bomb from going off because fuck me, my wife promised she would get me back
And now he can't even stay awake when his wife is in visible pain and calling out to him. They had 22 episodes to establish how much of a waifufag he is and how little his friends mean to him and they castrate him. Fuck you Nishigori.
The whole "it doesn't matter what you look like, humanity is on the inside"? Gone, they are both human now.
Hiro's "I will become a monster if it means staying with you"? Meaningless since they are both human now.
The speech about defying fate? Scrapped, they died like good little soldiers - and for nothing given that VIRM got away with only a minor setback - and only "met" again thanks to a coincidence - fate.
I was willing to overlook many flaws and bad decisions, all they had to do was let them survive properly, and they couldn't do it.
Good thing I wrote a fanfiction as my new headcanon.

I understand the point. I went in expecting to feel sorrow and loss, honestly. The ending was not as bad as everyone seems to think it was. Nishigori intentionally left it open ended, and that proverb explains why.

I understand he meant for us to hurt. I know this show was tragic. Every character was tragic, especially our favorite dino couple. There are obviously many problems with the ending, both on the technical and pacing side, but I don't think the reincarnation finale was necessarily bad. Most people's problems seem to relate to just not liking reincarnation in general.

They set them up from the start to overcome their problems through partnership and cooperation, nothing about them was ever tragic, but a coming of age/maturity. Hiro and 02 are the best example: they suffered through a lot but made it work. Only for it to fail spectacularly.
>not liking reincarnation in general
It was never even foreshadowed aside from magma energy being the souls of the klaxo people and Hime having telepathic powers. Which reminds me, it would have been perfectly fine if Hiro and 02's souls, once gone back to the earth, emerged from the magma energy the klaxo pumped back into the planet in their oni form. But no, that would be too good.

They too were child soldiers forced to fight an unknown enemy (which turned into unknown enemies). Their robots literally ran off their life force, as Ikuno and Futoshi demonstrate very clearly. Maybe they weren't as likable or developed as the other cast, but they definitely were still tragic. The entire story is set in a post-apocalyptic dystopian world where humans have ceased to reproduce and have to scuttle around the world in search of their magma energy fix.

I understand people's issues with the ending, but you're just being a contrarian.

They were "tragic" in the sense that a lot of shit was thrown at them, but the whole tone and theme was overcoming them together with the power of love.

But it never was. Every instance of danger was solved, completely, by Hiro's love.

There never was any tragedy. No one got maimed, no one got killed aside from the Nines - they didn't even the guts to let Naomi stay dead - and every illness they had is solved by Ikuno. Really, she is the only one who gets a bad-but-not-really ending since she counts as a heroic sacrifice instead of a tragedy.
Your - maybe, I don't know if it was you - mention of the first episode is completely off the mark: it was a signal that things could be better. How does it start?

>>
>Nobody from the main cast will die.
>>
>>175487614
Except the show is also about defying fate.
It also shits all over the theme of transience by making 02 and Hiro's love eternal and greater than death. After turning into a yellow sperm and impregnating the uterus bomb, 02's statue also gives birth to an everblossoming sakura tree, which flies straight in the face of the sakura's symbolic representation of the ephemeral nature of life.

One of the major problems of this show is that it cares more about its themes than it does its characters, so if they really want to make a point about something, they're willing to fuck over characters even if it affects the enjoyment of the show. Many of the themes also tend to be self-contradictory.

and it will continue to flop

True.1-15 was fantastic.
It's true that the show did foreshadow their deaths pretty hard in many parts of the show, but the problem is that it also pushes themes that defies it. While the show does have an overhanging sense of wistfulness and impending tragedy, it comes off as a red herring as the show progresses, because they start pushing themes of independence, defying fate, fighting to survive and choosing to selfishly focus on yourself and the one you love, rather than sacrificing yourself for the collective.
But in the end they just flush all of that down the toilet.

You could really see the love that was poured into those 15 episodes with all the pottery and careful balance of the themes. The ending is even more unsatisfying when you realize that if Hime had her way, it wouldn't have changed at all: she activates Star Entity, BTFOs the VIRM fleet and goes on a suicide bombing run. The theme of defiance against the world and Hir02 being the successors - golden bough, among other things - would have demanded that they actually find a solution and manage to come back. But it didn't happen.
Hir02 deserved better writers.

A proper, thematically correct ending would be Hiro growing antlers in the final scene to release his full power (like 02 did for him), causing Apus to grow wings, which would solidify this theme with a physical representation. He could use these wings to shield 02 from harm during the final battle, thus fulfilling his promise to be her wings, to be there for her and protecting her from harm.

That was never what their deal was though, Hiro never expresses a desire to protect her - the only time he comes close is in 8, but it's about "taking better care of her" - and even in 22, he's not "I'm gonna save her", but "I'm not letting her fight alone". He doesn't fear danger, what he fears is seeing the love of his life suffering without him supporting her.
It's true that him unleashing his full power to get away would have been fitting though.

He does say it in episode 13, when the guards knock him out. It also literally shows him trying to protect 02 multiple times in that episode.

They better give him an opportunity to produce and direct an anime.

But he doesn't see her as an object to be defended; he wants to be by her side. 15 is clear, he wants to FIGHT together.

>>
>>175488662
Drop that feminist shit. Wanting to protect someone doesn't mean they're an object.
A major point of the show is obviously finding someone to lean on, both for emotional support, love and the ability to fight at their full power. 02 and Hiro are particularly special, because they're made for each other and can't have any other partners, both in an emotional sense and when it comes to piloting. However, like I said earlier, there's nothing wrong with wanting to protect the one you love.
Hell, that's exactly what 02 tried to do when she took off in the Apus. You could say that the choice was wrong, because they would be separated, but the choice wouldn't be wrong if it would allow them to be together.
>>
>>175488562
He would make the lives of 02 and Hiro even more miserable, but give them true friends that will risk their lives in desperate attempt to save them, succeeding in the end and giving them a happy end they deserve where they are free to roam the planet and spend as much time together as they want.
Fuck, imagine if P13 were actual friends instead of useless passive dead weight.
>>
>>175488741
>Drop that feminist shit.
I didn't mean it like that. I used object in a more abstract sense. I think we have different connotations of "protect": when I see it, I think about keeping something safe from harm.
Hiro doesn't want that, at all: he has little regards for the external circumstances they are if they get to be together. Hiro's reproach in 23 is "if you have to suffer, why won't you let me keep you company?" And again, in 22 he doesn't say he's going to pull her back from the battle, just that he wants to help her.
I also have to add that 02 is not at all a feminist icon, and that's her charm: she's strong, powerful, and would drop all her independence for her darling, while at the same time never being a damsel in distress. I never thought "she's feminist wanking", but "this is a wild force of nature that wants a mate".
And it was profoundly beautiful.

The part about Hiro randomly falling asleep and thus having a weak connection so that Zero Two requires friendship space prayer for him was just nonsensical garbage and a disservice to the supposed strength of their relationship which was developed over the entire series.

In regards to the ending itself this seems too obvious to even mention, but if this ending wasn't supposed to be bad and was supposed to be happy, then it should have had some actual happiness in it. The show throws the audience into reincarnation literally in its last minute, then shows an ambiguous scene of Hir02 presumably meeting again. They don't show those kids being happy together in whatever scene, they don't show a montage of them growing up together or some such, they show nothing. That's one of the main reasons people call it bad, beyond the very contradicting approach to some themes this episode had.

It's as simple as that, if this was supposed to be happy, it should have shown happiness and people would've been much more accepting and also forgiving. If some equivalent of the last 4koma were canon the audience would've been way less harsh on it.
>>
>>175488941
The ones who provided the actual help for Hiro and 02 are Werner, 001, klaxosaurs who were kind enough to provide P13 space upgrades and Nines.

You have P13 freed from the shadow of Hiro and forced to get by on their own, possibly having Goro/Mitsuru step up as new leaders, you introduce a point of conflict in Hiro's changed nature and possible new allegiance to the klaxosaurs, FUCKING FRANXX BATTLES and final showdown against APE/the Nines with the squad reaching independence on their own and Hir02 tangentially helping by pursuing their own selfish goals of monogamous love.
Instead of space jews and irrelevance.

That's because he doesn't have any other choice. He's basically given a choice between staying on earth alone and going on a suicide mission to be with 02. Obviously he would choose to be with her.
That doesn't mean he doesn't want to protect her

>I also have to add that 02 is not at all a feminist icon
Agreed. I generally can't stand power girls and female characters who are strong for the sake of showing up men or making a political point. Those have become a staple in western entertainment, but are relatively rare in anime. 02 has nothing of this, despite being physically stronger and a better pilot than any man in the show. Sure, she relies on Hiro, but Hiro also relies on her. It's a mutual relationship. I also like the show's message of men and women being stronger when they rely on each other, rather than fighting over trivial bullshit, or whining about the quirks of the other gender.
The irony is that the west used to make a lot of well-written "strong" female characters back in the 70s, 80s and early 90s. Sarah Connor and Ellen Ripley would be the most iconic examples.

Hiro saurifying before episode 15 wouldn't make those episodes work, because 02's entire conflict in that arc revolves around her being a self-loathing dino while Hiro is still human.
The SoL episodes were also necessary to develop 02's relationship with the P13. Granted, I think they could have done this in a better manner, by showing how 02 dealt with P13 in the direct aftermath of episode 15, rather than doing a month long timeskip where everything has been mended.

How it actually works is that you have him saurify slowly: horn stubs, eyeliner, then horns after he restrains her in 11 and the episode after everything goes to shit.
>>
>>175489184
No, they need to regain their memories.
I'd love a scene where teenage 02 notices the picture book in Hiro's room, and remembers it from their meeting under the tree we saw at the end of episode 24. He offers to read it for her, and when he gets to the "darling" part, that triggers something in 02.

I actually wonder if original 02 and Hiro are the reincarnation of the actual characters from the book. That would explain why oni 02 suddenly starts crying when hearing the word "darling" in episode 13, despite having no idea what it means. It could be what she used to call Hiro in their previous lives.
Hiro constantly saying that the story is sad would also make sense if he's the prince from that book. That could also be why he hates the Jian symbolism at the start of the show, because he felt betrayed in his last life, not knowing why the princess he loved suddenly left him.
>>
>>175489318
>horn stubs, eyeliner, then horns after he restrains her in 11
Again, it wouldn't work, because the entire theme is that 02 hates herself for what she is, and Hiro is still human. If he's also a dino, that upsets the entire message and balance of their relationship. It also ruins the idea that a human would be willing to live with a dino. The fact that they get together before he starts to transform is a very important part of the story, and helps 02 accept what she is.
>>
>>175488979
Jesus, you Klaxxofag is so bitter that you choose to deliberately delude yourself. When Hiro was with Hime p13 were the ones who helped him, when Hiro needed a path through VIRM army Zorome and MIku were the ones who created it. What did Hime did except constantly fucking up? Gave her her life energy because she was already done by that point? What did Franxx did outside of literally helping Papa wage war against Klaxxos? What did nines do outside of 9a literally just working as a taxi driver and then getting pulling of a muslim on VIRM because he was nothing but a plot device at that point?
>>
>>175489330
sounds like a nice plotpoint but to solve that you would need a director who isnt a hack
>>
>>175489364
Not really though, because the self-loathing remained even after they showed Hiro was changing. You can easily work around your objection by shifting things lightly: 02 hates herself but darling is more important, and if to get him she has to sacrifice Hiro so be it; it fits with easing her loneliness by having someone like her and spares her conscience - initially - since he's essentially a rando.
>It also ruins the idea that a human would be willing to live with a dino
Which was never a problem, shota Hiro was perfectly fine with Eo To and grown up Hiro was instantly attracted to her horns.
>The fact that they get together before he starts to transform is a very important part of the story, and helps 02 accept what she is.
It's not, since her self-loathing persists and Hiro resolves to love her before he changes anyway, namely in 6, after seeing full well what she's capable of and what she is. You merely speed things up.
>>
>>175489400
>When Hiro was with Hime p13 were the ones who helped him
Except the snake would've done all the work instead of p13 easily. In fact they needed to shove p13 into that scenario for no fucking reason at all as klaxxo snake was closer and wanted to help.
>What did Hime did except constantly fucking up?
She did way more than worthless p13, that's for sure.
>What did Franxx did outside of literally helping Papa wage war against Klaxxos
He saved literally every single rejected parasite on top of creating Apus and opening the path to 02.
>What did nines do outside of 9a literally just working as a taxi driver
Taxi driving is more than p13 did to help Hiro reach the Apus.

Hey, anon, you don't really want to make P13 work for their happy ending, are you? This would betray the whole point of the show: the ones who did nothing to achieve the victory got a happy end while the ones who actually made victory possible got awful endings.
Ikuno is the only one out of all P13 who mattered in the end, jesus fuck.

>because the self-loathing remained even after they showed Hiro was changing
Not really. She felt guilt about what she'd done to Hiro, and possibly what she'd done to her former stamen. A lot of her issues were also related to the picture book, and she was convinced that she would end up killing Hiro. It wasn't so much that she hated herself at that point, but that she hated what she felt was her destiny.

>since he's essentially a rando.
That was never the case. She was absolutely destroyed by guilt over what she was doing to him in episode 12. In the final episode 02 also explicitly states that she was drawn to him from episode 1, being "dazzled" by his display of humanity. It dispels the entire notion of her using him that people have been speculating about.

>Which was never a problem,
It was one of the major themes of the show. Hiro accepting her dino form while he's still human is an extremely important part of their story, even if it was always obvious to the viewers. Nothing between ep 12-15 would work if he had saurified.

But if they are reincarnations already, then them not having their actual memories of their past lives is an indicator that they won't in their new ones. If the things you've talked about, the "darling" quote and Hiro's opinion on the book, were figments of their original lives, then all they really remember of them now is, as many have put it here, a sense of deja vu.

Nishigori kind of put us in a corner with this one. My own interpretation is that this was their first life and that we watched their souls entwine for the first time. But maybe that's just me being biased, since I'd much rather watch two people fall in love for the first time rather than the thousandth.

>It wasn't so much that she hated herself at that point, but that she hated what she felt was her destiny.
That's exactly what it was though. "It's ok if I die, I'm a monster anyway and it's always been like this", which could have been resolved way earlier than that.
>That was never the case.
It is. By "rando" I mean "not darling".
>It dispels the entire notion of her using him that people have been speculating about.
But she WAS using him, she admits it to herself. This doesn't mean that she didn't love him too though, just that darling was more important.
>It was one of the major themes of the show. Hiro accepting her dino form while he's still human is an extremely important part of their story, even if it was always obvious to the viewers.
He already did, and you can easily rearrange the storyboard anyway.
>Nothing between ep 12-15 would work if he had saurified.
His imminent saurifcation is something he doesn't even consider, and by that point he's past the point of no return anyway. It was never an issue for him, hell he would have embraced it for three different reasons over the course of those 15 episodes.
If you make him saurify early you obtain multiple goals at the same time:
>show 02's guilt manifest much more clearly over what she's doing to him
>make Hiro even more distant from everyone for the sake of his love
>speed things up instead of pointlessly dragging them on
>make 02 actually pay the price of her selfishness and force her to confront it
The difference with what went down is that 02 would pass from indifference - he must become a dino to pilot better and net more kills - to guilt - what she's doing to him is wrong - to total despair - she hurt him and robbed him of his "humanity" - to finally accepting what she did and what she is, with Hiro's help. Reaching the conclusion that humanity is not in one's appearance but conduct, like what she said in 16.

They were not physical beings so they couldn't be physically defeated. But their entire work that they did through hundreds of millions of years was deleted, they are practically harmless at the end, except on a very long run. VIRM was more like a force of nature than a real enemy.

They did essentially restart VIRM from square one. People act like they just pinched them, or something. Hiro and 02 blew up their entire homeworld and set all the captured souls in it free.

]spoiler]Is that necessary a good thing? Were those souls happier there, devoid of suffering? Were 02 and Hiro doing a disservice to them by setting them free? This may have been something Nishigori thought to expand on, but probably not.

>"It's ok if I die, I'm a monster anyway and it's always been like this"
Not really. She was just trying to push Hiro away, because she thought the picture book was her destiny, particularly after being absorbed into Apus. She was trying to protect him, because she didn't want him to lose his human form. It wasn't about the essence of what it means to be human, but about literally being absorbed into the Apus, and never being able to live like a human being, similar to what happened to the klaxos.

>It is.
It's not. She explicitly says so in the final episode.

>she admits it to herself.
The "using" part only started to show up after episode 9, when she started to realize that falling in love with Hiro conflicted with her goal of becoming human to be with Darling. On top of that, her entire self-image was warped beyond recognition, and she believed the lies she had told herself, that she was simply pretending to be human, when in reality, those were the moments when she was being herself.

>He already did
The message didn't get through until they reunited in episode 15. Her flinching and being self-conscious wouldn't make much sense if he was also a dino at that point.

>It was never an issue for him
That's irrelevant, because it's an issue for 02. Her being accepted by Hiro, while he's still human is an extremely important part of their story and 02's development.

>The difference with what went down is that 02 would pass from indifference
She was never indifferent to begin with. She was having a mental breakdown over what she was doing to Hiro.

>Reaching the conclusion that humanity is not in one's appearance but conduct, like what she said in 16.
Which is a considerably stronger message if Hiro is still human when he accepts her. It's one of the central premises of the show, which is exactly why they saved Hiro's saurification until the SoL episodes, after Hiro had accepted her.

Come to think of it, I'm kind of mad they killed Franxx so quickly. I understand he had closure in the form of saving everyone, getting 02 to Hiro, coming up with the plan to save Apus from VIRM, and in general protecting the human race at every turn, but he still could've stuck around a bit longer. This was one of those times I was kind of mad we didn't see the standard old-genius-guy-dies-but-returns-as-a-perfectly-copied-supercomputer sorta things.

Franxx is an enormous waste of potential. The one who could've been the "previous" Hiro and had an actual love story with 001, who could've created the picture book in first place, the one who could've gone out with a bang while delivering a decisive blow to APE turned out to be a simple old retarded pervert with incomprehensibly idiotic backstory and everything he did with main characters was merely his whim with no deeper meaning behind it.
Alongside with Hiro "shallow connection" 02, "my work here is done" Hime and "wasted potential" Nines he's one of the characters who was utterly assassinated by its own show.
>>
So, what would 02's name be in the future?
Hiro could still be Hiro, given that it's a standard name and also the name of the saviour of the planet.
Technically speaking, 02 could also be a common name given that she's a legend as well, but I don't think they'd go with that.
My guess is that they would go with Ai.

Given the existence of souls, he might reappear if they make a sequel about the future. He could be a teacher at the highschool 02 and Hiro attend.
I just wonder what his relationship to 001 would be. It would be kinda creepy if she was still a loli.

Still mixed feelings about the reincarnation, I really wanted dinobabies and Hir02 to reunite with the gang and get old together but I found the reincarnation beautiful, the concept of two souls bound together so strongly with business to settle is just poetic.

I think there was a lot of deeper meaning behind his actions; it's just that the show didn't lay them out explicitly, if at all even. He says there was no reason he put 02 and Hiro back in the same plantation, but knowing his backstory and the whole protecting the chidlren who failed thing, one can assume he was hoping for it. He was not a good guy, but he did have depth and did most of the behind the scenes gruntwork for saving the human race. Everything to do with the mechs, the squad's special treatment, 02, it was all started by him.

One thing I'd also like to point out is the little robot horn on his helmet/face thing. He really did want to become a klaxosaur. If he does have a soul, I wonder what its face looked like as it looked down on Hiro living essentially every single one of Dr. Franxx's dreams. Talking about not doing justice to a character and have others experience their desires? Franxx was literally the first and biggest to have this happen to him.

He's not interested in forgiveness, and he does wallow a little in his own wretchedness.

I think the things he claimed to have done on a whim, he did to redeem his asshole actions... to leave humanity in a better position and obtain some personal absolution in his own mind. It's as if he developed some kind of a conscience in the end. He still didn't require anyone else to understand or approve.

>>175491378
They could've literally went the "he was in love with 001 at some point of his life and started to saurify but Papa forced him under a surgery to replace his saurified parts of the body with augmentations to keep him in check" and the show would be way better for it.
No need to bring retarded reincarnations. They had an ability to create a tragic "previous" human-klaxosaur couple right under their noses to reinforce the themes of the show.

The problem with Franxx was that he was completely obsessed with 001. Thought he had some minor similarities with Hiro, he didn't have his compassion and lust for life, so he could never make a connection with 001. He just went after her like Futoshi went after Kokoro.
>>
>>175491526
>but Papa forced him under a surgery to replace his saurified parts of the body with augmentations to keep him in check
Nah, that would fuck up the entire relationship between Franxx and APE. Franxx was only able to do what he did because he had free reigns, and were able to manipulate APE into getting what he wanted, because of how important he was.
If they had tried to stop him from saurifying, you can bet your ass he would never work for them.

Maybe it's understandable for them to think it works that way. Killing Klaxosaurs has mostly been a matter of diving inside and stabbing the core. But maybe there were ways to do that remotely that they just never figured out?

I think Hime kamikaze'd in the other fic just due to being stuck in Apus with Werner. Unacceptable. Taking VIRM down was a bonus.

The bomb was basically a big uterus, while Strelizia became a sperm in the final scene. The penetration was meant to imply impregnation, which was reinforced by all the souls being set free, and 02's petrified form giving birth to a sakura tree.

One of my earlier theories, before episode 19, was that the picture book was about Franxx and another klaxosaur. I figured their relationship ended in disaster, with Franxx being partially saurified in a scene similar to what Hiro went through at the end of episode 12, while the klaxosaur ended up being transformed into a monster, which would have been the giant hand.

Being snatched down into the Grand Cravasse is a far more interesting idea period, because it gives the show the tension it lacked and doesn't make GC seem like a speedbump rather than the fight of their lives. There's also the alternative of pulling the whole team down there but separate them into groups, forcing them to work together, be self motivated and progress their characters. It would also allow them introduce the the Klax information naturally rather than in an exposition dump.
