Animenewsnetwork - As it turns out, the recurring theme of Cross Ange (if there has truly been one at all) is that having your own will and acting upon it are important and valuable. The whole of Ange's development throughout the series essentially boils down to that, but it isn't just her; Hilda has also discovered it over the course of the series. So, in this final episode, do Salia and (most surprisingly!) Sylvia. In two of episode 25's most satisfying moments, the former finally realizes that she does not have to attach herself to anyone, while the latter takes action in the ruins left from Embryo's attempted convergence in a way that in some senses is surprising but in some senses is not.
