Lol that fish meal.

Eh I think the episode was nice, mostly because of how relaxing it felt at first.
More of another set up episode for bigger things to come, I like how they are making Teiwaz very relevant in the story. Emotional narratives this episode. I can't wait to see how this will carry on for rest of the season.

I loved how MIkazuki kept on eating his rations while everyone was havng fish around him. Seems pretty true to character.

It's nice to see that some of the other characters are having some much needed development.

Seems next episode will see Tekkadan kicking some more Gjallahorn azz.

I thought Biscuit would quit for real, that was fast.

Mika and the others, I was a bit surprised they never ate fish before, so they only eat vegetables so far?

I wanna know how Tekkadan could come back to Mars if Orga wanted to do so.....I mean, there are Gjallarhorn in the Earth's orbit.

LOL! The fist meal. "It's glaring at us".

Mikazuki, Atra work so hard you could at least take a bite at it.

Mikazuki: There's this to.
Atra: Hey!

Carta! <3

Oh wait, that's not good... but what the hell, I like her. lol Still not good for them. Ein will likely now get that system on him to continue his revenge. So that's even more danger for them. Wonderful.

Anyways, Poor Biscuit. I never expected his brother to die like that. Mika needs to be more open minded and stop eating those sour fruits or whatever they were (sour plums? forgot) while trying different kinds of foods. Dear Atra worked hard for you.

"Its glaring at us" lol that actually looked kinda creepy XD

So Ein really will get the AV system? And ChocoChar knows more about it than we know :O Power up incoming?

Atra's getting cuter and cuter every ep. I didn't expect this but she's probably best girl for me now. Her reaction to the flounder and her ranting at Mika eating his usual nuts leaving the fish was so cute as well as her reaction when Mika was telling Kudelia to not eat the fish lololol. She's really been adorable lately.

Didn't expect the Biscuit drama. Savarin killed himself huh. Loser until the end and he caused trouble causing drama for Tekkadan too<_< But I saw Biscuit piloting in the pv so that should be interesting :3

Didn't expect Carta to have that much politic power with how much of a joke she seemed XD

A good episode. Love the reactions at the fish hahaha

Poor Biscuit.. didn't expected that Savarin killed himsef. A tragic family drama.

Kudelia and Atra are growing on the episodes. I love it. The harem with Mikazuki seems very funny. I laughed loud at the scene where Atra prepared fish for Kudelia and Mika offered the fruit hahahaha

Carta have so much political power. I love her! She is very funny and reminds me Haman Karn and Cima Garahau.

Next episode we will have battles on Earth <3

Overall it was a good episode that serves to build up the upcoming fight. Surprised that Carta had that much influence in Gjallarhorn

Guys, why do I have the feeling that Kudelia will pull a stupid move like the princess of Aldnoah Zero? Maybe I am traumatized by the Second Season? Please Sunrise, don't mess it up.. There is still hope!!

Also, that drama between Olga and Biscuit, but it is the little fights that brings friends/"brothers" a little bit more closer..
Anyways, the Harem is standing strong with Kudelia x Mika x Astra!! Let's pray Kudelia doesn't immediately marry a character that gets introduced 1 episode before the final episode

Go Tekkadan, Beat the Eyebrows chick!! haha

I almost facepalmed when Kudelia said she can do things by herself from now on so Tekkadan can leave.

So I guess Ein will get the Alaya-Vijnana system and be more op. Chocolate Man is so busy doing two characters =w=;; Makes me wonder why he hasn't told Gali Gali about his other plans.

That Makanai guy is so hard to figure out. It felt as if most shifts in the episode were due to things he comes up with.

The fish scenes were hilarious! Atra is so adorable and her food looks amazing *Q* Mika forever sticking to his Martian uhh.. food?

I'm kind of glad Merribit was there for Orga. It's nice seeing him talk to someone, who's not Biscuit, about the things going on in his head. I also love the convo between Nadi oyaji and Biscuit quq

Ugh and Carta is back. Who knew she had that much influence?

5 more episodes left~

D'aww. That moment when Atra got scared of the flounder and embraced Mikazuki.

It was nice seeing that Tekkadan experiencing everything they don't have on the Mars.

Looks like Ein will get the Alaya-Vijnana system after all, I think Gaelio will not let him die.

And of course, Carta having that much authority.

With Ein's installing Alaya-shiki, Gaelio will be forced to reconsider his views on who he considers human, in regards to the "space rats" in particular. Looking forward to it.

Biscuit surprised me with his outburst, but his "settling down for the small thing instead of trying to grab the big one" is just not a viable option in their situation where they're between the rock and the hard place. Glad that Yukinojo-san made him realize it.

Did I mention that I'm loving the way things related to Kudelia make Mikazuki think with his own head and listen to his own emotions instead of just going with the flow/Orga's orders? She's a great influence on him that way. He doesn't have a rich repertoire of facial expressions, but in this episode it couldn't be anymore obvious that he didn't like what she was suggesting, her words basically making him realize just what it is that he himself, of his own free will, wanted to do, and it's definitely not to leave Kudelia fight on her own like she essentially suggested. Sorry, Atra, but in terms of sheer positive influence on him and the ability to bring out the best in him Kudelia is winning hands down so far.

The upcoming land warfare in the next ep is something to eagerly look forward to, for sure. It looks exciting, especially with tropical jungle in the background.

Do we have the official confirmation of a second season for this show yet? Because there are only 5 eps left, and I find it hard to imagine they can wrap up the plot with the twist Makanai just introduced in just 5 eps...

Also loved the moment between orga and the blond girl (always forget her name hahaha). I wanna see more progress in their 'relationship' \o/

Kudelia is okay "speech wise," but other than that, there's really nothing she can do especially when she's up against Gjallarhorn. She doesn't even have any allies that could face Gjallarhorn. Imagine what she can even do without Tekkadan.

I agree, however, that she has matured quite a bit, but I don't think it's still enough. She thinks she can just head on tackle the problem by herself. She should, at least, know her own limits. I think the writer is really pushing the "Joan of Arc" character on her recklessly tbh. It's okay. We have two seasons for this xD

Actually this episode fit in extremely well right now. First it looked at the relationship between Biscuit and Orga, where biscuit was always somewhat of a propaganda machine for Orga, which in turn made Orga's reaction to his "rejection" even more natural. This is the first time someone in the crew has directly been in opposition of Orga's plans so we can see how he handles it and it should serve to build orga and biscuit as characters. I don't see how that was pointless at all... in fact it made sense that someone would question Orga at this point especially after Kudelia had told them they could go.

It also properly closes off the story of Biscuit's brother, shows why the oceanic federation is helping them, shows them preparing for land battle, expands on the political environment on earth and the relationship between economic blocs and Gjallahron among other things. It was an excellent episode to come off that last one honestly.

I'll concede on that point. Admittedly my statement on the whole Orga-Biscuit drama wasn't very well-thought out. My problem with the episode (and the series in general) is just how the episodes are structured, which is where that statement came from.

Welp... another chill episode of calm before the storm. This is becoming a predictable pattern now.

Still, it was great to see the changes that the characters are going through. Interesting to see the kids reacting to flounder, both live and on a plate. Mika adamantly sticking to his space rations was so typical, and yet so in character. The meeting with the Jiji was a little harsh, because the old foggy was essentially pulling the "I'm an adult and you should do what I say, or else." card, which I found particularly jarring. Kudelia and her entourage get absolutely no respect here.

Biscuit had every right to go off on Orga to be honest. Feeling fear and wanting to take the safer path is pure human nature, you cannot fault him for it, specially with what happened with his brother. It's a great thing that they have Nadi as a fatherly voice of experience to show him the way. Mad respect to him for that.

The end with Carta was way too melodramatic. I simply cannot take this lady seriously at all.

So, will Lafter cheat on Naze with Akihiro while they are away? :P I can see that happening.

I'm liking Atra more and more. Too bad I still don't find Kudelia that interesting, so I'm all for Mikazuki/Atra at the moment. I think it will most probably be Mikazuki/Kudelia, though.

I'm curious about McGillis and I actually find him an interesting character. I still can't tell if he is a villain or not but an interesting character nevertheless. However, I find his engagement to a little girl a bit disturbing but we will see what will happen.

I think that she wanted to say that the ''political work'' against Gjallahorn is her responsability. Tekkadan just have to fight against Gjallahorn's tropes (Gaelio, Carta and etc)

That is not a reason to obviously force it so much. I just want them to be more natural, being sticky is being annoying, just because he is an important childhood does not mean she should stick so much lol. And saying the reason is to cook is quite degrading (girl's job : cook, men can't cook..) but that is another debate. When they were on mars, she was not cooking for them everyday, so some of them can probably cook too, for what reason would they bring her to such dangerous mission ? They did not stated and won't, cause they can't, its just for the drama later.

I agree with you about the forcing love triangle part, I think those moments where they talk would be much better with just a one on one between Kudelia and Mika because she's beginning to influence him and so on.. Also their moments are just too cute :p
