Decent episode, I really like Misa/Yusa. Pyrokinesis is pretty violent power compared to the rest except maybe Megane-kun's teleportation.

Meh, this was so horrible on many levels. But mostly, I really don't like their happy-go-lucky approach to problems solution. And it reminded me of those children tv series where kids can do anything and adults are just powerless obstacles. Really? Not belieavable at all.

Most of the comedy wasn't even funny. And before, I didn't cared about Nao but now she is slowly getting on my nerves too. I realized her seiyuu is to blame. Sakura Ayane destroyed Haru character in Nisekoi: and now she doing what she can to destroy another show.

I expected that the new character would be different and fresh but she is the same. The only good part was Misa's parting scene but it felt so rushed that it felt too cheesy. And eight day Maeda said 'Here there be feelz!'. Nope. That's not how it works.

The hell was that post-apo ending?

inb4 sister is spying on him for some evil organization and they are in some reality-show broadcasted by multi-national television.

(heck, I don't even care anymore)

I saw some amazing shit this episode.
I mean a female nosebleed? damn. Nao still irritates the fuck out of me though.
The ED is quite nice btw, I didn't notice that yet.

That glasses guy's only purpose in this anime was for comedic purposes isn't it? I'm done with this anime. I'm not gonna even debate with people about this anime. Maybe once a week comment and that's it.

New girl called Misa, sweet yet possessed, pretty much that glasses guy's love interest.

Meh episode.

[size=300]Don't worry folks, I am confident that this show won't be as bad as Glasslip.

Seriously at least AB! doesn't annoy me this much like this show did with its unlikable characters and sloppy writing.

Quite a nice episode, liked the otaku obsession from 4-eyes. But that wet guy's ability must suck for him constantly getting wet.
The new character introduced looks interesting, though I don't have a proper opinion of her yet.

Still liking Nao, though Yuu has become more likeable and seems different from the way he was in ep 1.

With each passing episode Nao is becoming a better and batter character.

Still an enjoyable series.

Yusa/Misa was an interesting character, though I still prefer Nao. I liked the 2nd ending, and all in all it was a pretty good episode. My only issue is that Yuu is becoming less important and he's just not the badass he was in the first half off episode 1.

Why do I get the feeling that something bad will happen to the imouto?

As much as I dislike Clannad, it was way more funny than this show.
Now this show pretty much turned from "I'd want to see" into "I've seen it before."
terrible 2/5.

Nao, Nao, Nao, Nao and once again Nao. She becomes the star of the anime. I was expecting that. Yuu becomes the good guy, was expecting that. Yuu becoming a priest like gave me cancer. First episode showed him as a hot badass main dish which I loved, now he just became a cold side dish. It started well, but it just losses its interest every second I am watching this.

This episode brought us Misa and her gang. Only her appearance saved the episode IMHO. And that strategic combat gave me a bit of chills.

Also, humor that is so close to Angel Beats has its flavor. I want something more serious in this anime setting.

Still, I have faith Yuu will do something irrational and arrogant, and prove me that he will not become dull good guy.

The only two things that I liked about this episode was hearing Hosoya Yoshimasa's voice and Nao getting punched in the face. Kudos to that guy.

Not the best of episodes, but not as bad as some people seem to have made it out to be. Yusa and Misa seem like fun additions to the cast at least, and the subplot was decent as well. Also, looks like there's a lot of interesting stuff in that opening song, maybe lots of hints about what's to come? Certainly seems like promising stuff.

I'm guessing the next ep or the ep after that is when the feels things is gonna happen, and I bet it's going to involve the little sister. I hope they don't do a monster of the week format as well

Lmao why is MC talking directly to us now, on some Deadpool shit. Quite like it tbh.

Damn that boi hitting Nao with the backhand was so satisfying.

The new girl looks pretty nice, and got a cool power, I wonder will her sis be appearing more, or she passed on.

Also there's some futuristic looking town pic in the OP, maybe they will find someone who will lead them in the future.

In the end we can't forget the wet long haired guy who discovers all the ppl with superpowers, salute to him.

God I love this anime, can we just make this 24 episodes please?

If Misa is able to take her power with her when she possesses her sister, then that could mean that she harbored pyrokinesis before and after she died. By possessing her sister, this means that powers are not tied to the body that originally harbored it, but the soul or something.
The scientists researching this stuff might be experimenting on the wrong things.

It could just be that when Misa possessed her sister's body, which was that of a teenager's, the new conditions allowed her to develop a power, which is still separate from her sister's.

Either way, this can point to the powers being linked to someone's conscious being, instead of the body.

EDIT: A friend pointed out how this idea can connect with this overlay found in the OP.

What happened in Aldnoah.Zero was absurd, fanaticism and exaggerated fanwank seemed crazy thing.

You are the annoying guy who would never shut up in the A/Z forums, constantly repeating the same things over and over and over again. I knew you seemed familiar. Plus the only reason you dislike Nao is because you somehow believed Yuu to be lelouch..... which had very very little similarities in the first place.

I´m actually enjoying the comedy in this quite a lot, maybe I have low standards xD Joujirou got me laughing quite a lot during this episode, the fangasming was pretty great and I love his power! Ayumi´s nosebleed was fun aswell.

As for the episode I think it was good, the way they used their powers against the tv guy was awesome, cool to see all the powers in action! Also, Misa with the fire and all was pretty badass.

Confession scene was great too and OST was used very well :3

All in all, loved it.

I don't know why, but the pace seems a little fast and rushed, they should have given at least 2 episodes to the new girl.

Pretty much.

The comedy is really bad, the pacing is super rushed, and the show is just not interesting.

The worst part is probably his sisters voice, which is the most annoying thing I heard in a while.

The female characters pretty much ruin this show for me. I find the legitimately funny scenes to be the interactions between the guys of the show (even those are just so so) but then even they get drowned out by overpowering females coming in the following scenes to just leave a sour taste.

'75 Cycles', 'Geocentrism', and 'unknown particle' is part of pic related. It was right in front of us in the OP.

Geocentrism is a theme that frequently appears in sci-fi literature. The scientists probably discovered that in every cycle the meteor shower makes, the 'unknown particle' gives special abilities to people that are not adults. Comet 76 is probably meteor shower that gave Charlotte her special abilities. The one that they investigated first is Charlotte. Soon after, they started tracking the kids under the guise of 'vaccine treatment' for an 'illness' and they put them under the experimental facility to see if the special abilities can be weaponized and see if the comets are coming from another alien civilization sending them from their own planet, hence the scientists devise a constellation map to track where the comets are coming from leading to a 'geocentrism' theory.

This is where the 1st student council comes into play and rescues them albeit with the kids suffering trauma as others failed to escape. Yuu, the student council, and the people they are hunting are probably the only kids that survived the escape. This is where the 'time leap' comes into play - future version of Yuu met Nao and proved that he's trustworthy after telling her of the tragedy that happened in the future where they were all captured again and his imouto died and he probably reveals that his imouto wiped out/altered the memories of the children that escaped the facility and their family's, at the cost of her having an amnesia in the form of being unable to recall certain events.

Fascinating theory. I can see where you got geocentrism from:

But I cannot find where "75 cycles" or "unknown particle" are.

Also, regarding the numbers 75 and 76, Halley's Comet has an orbital period of 75 to 76 years.

Joujiro is so funny xD He's always bleeding but he acts like it's nothing xD
His reaction was so funny when Misa switched back to Yusa and he was banging his head on the wall. xD
I think Yusa/Misa's ability will be helpful, and probably provide a lot of touching moments, if she can be possessed by any spirit...

I guess the downside would probably be that she can't control when she is possessed, nor can she control who is possessing her. So I'd guess that even a mean spirit could possess her and cause her problems. Not to mention she wakes up in weird places. xP

also 2/5

I call foul, lie, deception!

There is no way a normal Japanese napkin could absorb that much blood. Indeed the blood would have been more matted had they used one.

Still watching, just had to make that comment due to prior experience.
