THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
The character cast is so appealing for this show.

Hisone is a curious character but her personality stands out a lot. That Kaizaki has my interest so far too as her behavior is more or less anxious compared to others. The way dragons react in this show gave me some laughs.

A slow paced but entertaining episode. I think the OP song is well made too.

Nao's attitude was really annoying in this episode. I'm glad she came back around. It was nice of Hisone to go out and look for her. She's apparently the chosen miko for calling the OTF by its true name.

Great episode.

I love Hisone so much already. She looked fine in her suits.

Really, really fun show so far and one of the 'gems' of this season.

Damn, I disliked Kaizaki at first because of her nature. I don't like bullies. I still don't like her but my dislike for her has lessened.

Seems like there's more to Hisone as she the chosen "Miko" according to their superior Sosoda.

Yup, Hisone is definitely the second best character of this entire season, right behind Sugimoto from Golden Kamuy, lol. I just love how she says everything that's on her mind out loud with absolutely no filter whatsoever, LOL.

Also, Jesus Christ, that fking ED. I can't remember the last time an ED made me laugh like that... easily the best ED of the season. Christ almighty xD.

The misunderstood attempt at bullying was very amusing to watch. And I already took a liking to the characters. Their simple design and personalities,especially Hisones are just so charming.
Kokoro did nothing wrong.

The dancing in the ED is so good. xD
Also from the looks of it even though Kakiyasu says its standard to have multiple pilots the only secondary pilot we're going to see is Kaizaki, or at least the only one import enough to appear in the OP and ED.

Also if I had to guess the red dragon that turns into a blue plane is the short hair girl, the reconnaissance one is the girl with the akward expression and the cargo is the big gal.

Oh the blue plane is a mitsubishi F-2

And the other two are a E-2 hawkeye and a kawasaki C-1.

I thought this was a really good episode! This is quickly becoming one of my favorite shows this season. The characters are likable and they have great expressions with the animation. The ending with them dancing is also cute.

The summer season is gonna feel lackluster after this. Inb4 this becomes an (almost) undisputed classic.

I'm really liking this show so far: I find every character appealing on some level and the "roughness" or "simplicity" of the art style makes this show quite pleasant to watch.

That ED is super cute. I loved how all of Nao's bullying attempts failed and Hisone thought she was being nice. Nao is super hotblooded and ran away pretty irrationally. I'm glad it seems like she will try to get along with Hisone from now on, but I hope she keeps her feisty side.

We now have a better indication of how big of an aviation fanboy the author of the series is. The name of Ikushima's company is "Okamoto Innovation Barnes-Wallis".

Barnes Wallis was a British engineer who designed the Upkeep ("Dam Buster" bouncing bomb), Tallboy and Grand Slam ("earthquake") bombs during the Second World War. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Barnes_Wallis

The ED just adds to the overall weirdness of this show, but the song is catchy and anything with dancing is a plus for me.

That's because of the other pilot that's supposed to fly with Hisone, as obviousy seem very "enthusiastic" about women. There's also the Ikushima dude, the D-pilot bodies' aficionado.

Next episode will probably lean towards this.

Great episode.

When the suit making dude grabbed Hisone and said he was only interested in her body, I couldn't stop laughing. That was gold. XD

I love Hisone's completely straightforward, honest but at the same time kind rude demeanor towards others. XD

So the dragon is called Msaotan, suspected as much. xD

Flying scenes were great again.
Looking forward to next week.

I don't know why but I really liked the animation here. Its good to see a non CGI transformation once in a while



The ending was GLORIOUS LOL

I'm really digging this anime :3

Why was Maso-tan being tsundere in Nao-san's defense? He wouldn't even swallow the bitch until it was a situation which benefitted Hisone. At least the end suggested Nao-san is warming up to her a bit.

Wow this episode was actually better than the first, the comedy was just toally on point, the misunderstanding from hisone about the bullying was probably the most entertaining gag this season so far, I love her rudeness as a result of her rants.

Why wont people just give this show a chance, its got so much heart and soul yet its completely drowned out by every other show this season

I hope so, the show feels plucked out of the late 90's which kind of makes it feel even more like its some sort of classic show that got lost to time.

I think the show is gaining traction. Especially on twitter. It has a lot more members than it did last week.

that'd be great if it did gain traction, well in the event the quality keeps up that is, if the show can improve above these spectacular first 2 episodes were I could see this getting a 9/10 from me but i dont want to put too much hope on it


Still im already in full on shill mode for the series at the time being, I think being in a season where both his and megalo box air side by side is kind of mind blowing

This show has been pretty boring so far, maybe I would like it more if I didn't come into it expecting it not to be a slice-of-life. Welp, guess I fucked myself over but maybe it'll pick up more, or at least show some resemblance of a plot at some point

I will say that the two girls getting along now is pretty cute

Very nice episode. Hisone has got my attention as mc and really liking her character now but I really cannot like Nao :\ Anyway diverse characters which makes this show so fun. Also the drama handled brilliantly and I feel like I can expect alot from this show. The music/animation is more like addictive to me (especially that transformation scene).

"Nothing to worry about. I am only interested in your body." Ikushima is a man of culture!

"I can't sleep until I hear the rest of it." Kaizaki, YOU FAIL!

F-15 fighter planes? I see...Dat "Otofu" though...

Aww...Kaizaki's thunder was stolen by Amakusa. Gotta have that Okada drama...Hmm...sounds like a particular character from Cross Ange...wait...Cross Ange...Hisone to Maso-tan...Dragons that turn into jets...Nah...Fukuda wouldn't do something like that...

Wait...did Maso-tan just sniff Kaizaki? Yep, we're definitely Cross Ange now...

A miko...a shrine priestess? Is Amakusa special or something to be able to read Masotan's name? Huh...I wonder where this will lead up to. Anyway, still loving the dragon-to-jet transformation. Based Kawamori.

French? Why French? Well, it is unique, and it sounds catchy, so I'll roll with it.

Given the backstory of the dragons hiding and the classic connection between dragons and maidens, it falls into place quite nicely.

I am so glad I sensed something fun will happen with this anime once I saw the PV! Too bad this anime is going under the radar of so many fans. Fantastic second episode.

The characters already have a lot of life to them just two episodes in and OMG! The voice acting are so damn good! And then of course the originality of dragons transforming to real fighter jets!

I think I am being sold more and more the more I watch this anime!

Hisone to Maso-tan could easily become the real gem of the season!

Oh, before I forget, the OP and ED are simply amazing. Especially the ED. A freaken' 11.5/10!

Well, considering the entire premise, yes… but just a note that there are two authors working on the show, afaik (and Okada is a woman; Higuchi is a man). :)

A lot of the plane scenes are CGI, but in post-processing are made to look like they aren't – and they do a good job of it.

It's miko (as BlackstarFallen said), not miku.
