THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
The tournament begins and everyone tries to bring out their best game. Nice. Competition looks tough at this stage and I'm not surprised that Carole and Tuesday feels the pressure.

Some of the singers/dancers made a decent impression while others I'm not too sure. EIther way, it's a tough world to compete in. Personally, I like Carole and Tuesday's performance.

Ex-child actress got a new manager.

The two are among the others (the other qualified are so ... unique), and Tuesday's fan... sounds rude, though.

lol @ one of the judges... robot dog talking instead of the old guy.

Old twins singing rock?! And that SNS star also qualified. His song is ... topic is like the song for Eurovision 2019 Switzerland, one of the least favorite songs. He won against the old twins.

The main two's competitor is ex-gambler (and more). Wow, opera in rap style?!

They showed the previous fes performance... oh it was also popular online like their first song. Like the lady judge said, they are plain.

lol @ their competitor got grandmother revealing he lied about ex-gambler, and he is actually a kind, simple guy. They got qualified.

Ex-child actress, saw their performance, said she hate them.

25:25 next.

Edit: Just saw that the AI dog is voiced by Hiroyuki Yoshino

I understand that all the character's songs are sung by people who are NOT their main voice actors, but you're telling me they have Aoi Shouta voicing a character and didn't let him sing his own character's song? That's a crime.

That was a great episode, the performances were lit. Pyotr's performance was super good that dance animation tho and lmao OG Bulldog's opera rap was extra lit. 

Carole and Tuesday came out with new song it was good but not good enough gotta agree with the judge it was indeed plain. og should have won poor him, anyways can't wait for others performances.

And Angela can fuck off with that attitude seriously

A drug dealer? Never, he just worked at a drugstore. Savage grandma hahahaha. OG Bulldog's facial expression was hilarious btw. Really reminded me of One Piece 😂👍🏻

And wow, Pyotr has the skills to pay the bills, his performance was nice, especially the animation was really good. The other performances were also entertaining. So yeah, the episode definitely delivered.

Also nice that Angela has Carole and Tuesday on her radar now. I'm just afraid that she might wouldn't hesitate from resorting to cheap tricks to harm these two.

In my opinion This is the best episode I've seen of carole and tuesday. But I'm really confused on the new short black haired character gender(the one that is crazy about tuesday). Can't tell if it's a flat tomboyish female or a feminine guy?

"drug dealer? He worked at a drugstore." Oh my god that was hilarious. Good episode today. Loved Carole and Tuesday's song as well. The difference in Pyotr's voice sort of threw me off though, it was completely different from his usual voice and temperament.

pretty fun episode, had a decent amount of moderate laughs, but I think it was unintentionally hilarious that the judge kind of ended up hitting the nail on the head with this show's biggest problem, carole and tuesday's performance and overall song catalog is bland. The melody was ok this time at least but jesus christ the lyrics are so bad especially since they are now relying on the lazy addition of just humming nonense like ba ba ba ba instead of writing actual lyrics

Maybe Cybelle is one of the people with "Martian Androgyny" which I can't tell yet if that's just a style choice that is popular on Mars or if it's an actual birth condition caused by the Martian environment that causes people to be intersex or something like that. Looking forward to a further explanation of what that all means and why it seemed like such a shocker for Angela's mama to be called out that way by Tao.

I agree with the above statements that their song was pretty bland. I didn't feel the emotion and joy in this one as much as others. The ending of the song was nice, but up to that point it was a little average. My favorite song of theirs so far is "Someday I'll Find My Way". That song was GORGEOUS. Hold Me Now is also pretty great in terms of what songs they've already written and sang in the show. I'm curious what is going to prompt them to write "Kiss Me".

Im on the opposite camp honestly, the comedy has been on point but almost every attempt at drama has kind of flopped save for the scene with angela's domestic abuse.

Carole and Tuesday's new song was not as impressive as their recent ones, also not liking the music from the other contestants shown so far. I'm guessing this song was weaker on purpose so the girls show that they have a lot of room to grow, but we'll see what happens. I would like to hope there's much better songs coming later on, but my favorite so far is "Unbreakable" from episode 6.

Next episode:

Carole & Tuesday have made it into the semifinals. The following week, the third and fourth rounds of Mars’ Brightest take place. Awaiting her turn, Cybelle pesters Tuesday with questions about her hairstyle and suggests that they team up. Carole is irritated that Tuesday can’t get rid of her. Cybelle’s opponent in the fourth round is Angela.

My biggest worry with this anime is that the songs will drop in quality overtime for the characters that matter. This has yet to happen.

Fantastic episode as usual. This is a contender for anime of the year at this point.

It's a really nice change of pace to get a story as lighthearted as this. I'm almost always watching the opposite.

Watanabe's shows always have the most eclectic music of any anime. I need Bulldog's song to be on the OST's,. That was hilarious stuff.

So Angela acknowledges our main heroines by being a total bitch to them? Seems like someone is threatened right now. OG Bulldog's performance was legit and the Fire Brothers (aka the ZZ Top reference of the show) was too funny as well. Gotta say, this show never manages to disappoint me.

Based on voice and name, and appearance, I'm pretty sure Cybelle is female.

I hope with everything in me that in the English dub of this anime they find voice actors whose voices match the singers closely enough that it isn't awkward. Pyotr's singing voice sounds like the lead guy of Bastille. It is SO far off from the voice actor voice that it's not actually believable. Same thing happened with Skip a couple episodes ago.

I have to say I feel a bit frustrated that the anime seems fairly directionless at this point. I get that the overall plot is that they want to become famous singer-songwriters, but it feels like they are really neglecting character development at this point. We're almost 1/3 of the way through the show and barely know anything about anyone. Maybe it's because it's Watanabe that I'm expecting so much more. I've been seeing lots of subtext and subtle hints at what directions the show might go, but so far it hasn't gone there. Waiting for things to heat up a bit.

The comedy is great at times, but sometimes it's more miss than hit for me. The comedy involved in the "weirder" acts on Mars Brightest is not really a stretch from what those kinds of shows are actually like. As a parody it worked great (auditions scene last episode). As pure comedy during the show itself, I'm not really feeling it. At first it felt like they were being somewhat incisive about the artificiality and ridiculousness of these kinds of shows but now I can't tell if they're parodying or just parroting.

LMAO, that judge totally nailed it about Carole and Tuesday's song.To be fair though, that was their worst song to date. Their next match will be against Pyotr so they will have to step up their game if they want to pass the next round.
The match between Cybelle and Angela should also be quite interesting.

This anime isn't really great but I still have a lot of fun watching it.

Loved this show, now it turned to "like".

Really don't like these type of unoriginal arc's and was hoping this show wouldn't go this route. Tournament arc's was a cop-out... We're just watching filler until the finale and it's wasted screen time.

Wasn't that big of a fan of Carole & Tuesday's song either. I'd say it was the worst of the show so far.

Hope this arc is over in the following 2 episodes. 3/5

Opera and rap... interesting combo but...eh?

Carole & Tuesday's song was bland?!! Damn ya'll killing with this shit. I guess I don't know music then because I thought that was a great performance. I was steadily bobbing my head throughout that whole song.
Pyotr's performance was great too. Not only the singing but the dancing too. I need to find the animator who did the dancing sequence that was perfect.

Am I the only one that thinks that the show is kind of underwhelming?
Don't get me wrong, the quality of the animation and music is very high, but the writing is average at best. It doesn't make the anime bad per say, but it feels a bit dragged down, especially with the rest of the show getting the shiny treatment.
The different styles of the contestants was interesting and captures the spirit of such a talent show pretty well.

That Tuesday's fan, Cybelle, was really intrusive, someone who didn't seem to care about consent or personal space, and who is clearly obsessed going by all of those texts. But well, the talent show itself started well. If everything goes as expected Carole and Tuesday will be facing Angela in the big final. Pyotr surprised me too, I'm annoyed by his "social media star" persona just like the judge Catherine, but his song and dance were pretty cool, his singing voice was way better than expected too. lol And now he is the next one Carole and Tuesday must defeat to proceed for the final.

I also liked how the AI judge mentioned their soul, and how Catherine said that being "plain" compared to the others, and competing "only" with their music became their strength. But I don't like the way Angela talked to them. But like Gus said, it only means she acknowledges them as rivals since she wasted her time going there to call them 'nobodies'. Can't wait for the next few rounds.

Truth to be told their song was pretty shit and average this time, they only won by default because their competition was utterly hopeless on purpose (and in the first round too, however great Pyotr was). Finalists certainly shouldn't be like this (Fire brothers or Bulldog, both were just caricatures), one would expect that when choosing final eight everyone would be great, while in the reality those two were more fit for laughable picks before.

Also, I'm not really fan on how they try so hard to mimic nowaday's talent shows, even moreso with boring commentaries of judges, that was borderline cringe, really. It's breaking the 4th wall everytime they do such references and it undermines the show as a whole.

The episode wasn't exactly bad but nothing really happened thanks to the fact that they basically copied the tempo of such competition. I just hope we wouldn't have to see the rest of the eight. And seeing Angela denouncing them was really needless, it's just another cheap shortcut enforcing the viewers' want to see her defeated.

But it's obvious that at this point they would go against Pyotr and then Angela wins her musical battle against them to give them final boss in the end. Zero to hero wouldn't work otherwise if they won without much experience and effort at half-point, they need to feel the defeat first to be able to rise up, coming out stronger. And it would be even unreal, they can't certainly top the votes Pyotr or Angela gets due to their fans (unless they do something ridiculous to alienate them).

Really good episode ! After the previous one with horrible songs (more like noises for some participants), we can now have some very surprising & decent songs.

Fire Brothers were... special, yeah that's the word. Pyotr's song was basic & repetitive but also surprising considering his voice & way of talking. He deserved his place in semi-finals.

OG Bulldog was hilarious, I guess everyone expected a hardcore rap song but... nope, an opera mixing modern instrumental : very surprising but funny to listen to.
Finally, about Carole & Tuesday, their song actually fitted nicely after OG Bulldog's one (genre were closer I think). Quite peaceful & appreciable, as they usually do. I laughed when Bulldog's grandma showed up and restored the truth about her grandson's past.

Also about the judges, they make an interesting trio : the man seems to appreciate everything he listened to, finding good points for everyone. On the opposite, there is Catherine who stars by "destroying" you then she gets back to a normal statement. The AI being the discreet judge but... just the fact this is a robot makes it funny.

I love when the writer/director/anime in general has a general feel for how their audience would respond/feel about particular events. I say this because I agree with Catherine, I did not like Carole & Tuesday's performance. I preferred it over OG Bulldog's (since I couldn't understand a word he said), but it WAS bland. A very tired, ever generic love song. One that says nothing about them, and doesn't compel any emotion because the singers themselves aren't attached to it. At least there was a lot of energy; it is obvious they were enjoying putting on a show.

They were simply lucky that they weren't up against Pyotr. Despite how I loathe his personality (and looks, honestly), he was a good singer and decent dancer, and the performance just screamed "I want your attention". C&T's poor choice-of-song would have doomed them if I had been the judge, and I feel Catherine would have determined her vote the same way.

Looking forward to the conclusion of the talent show, definitely. This episode was easily one of the weakest, with a promise to have at least next episode, and maybe even the episode after that, held prisoner to this farce of a tournament-arc. Hopefully Cybelle gets taken care of before Tuesday is permanently scarred by whatever that stalker decides to pull.

Those contestants were really surprising, the fire brothers were my favorite, they would've gotten my vote if it was real. Although Carole and Tuesday sang gracefully, I pick Bulldog over them even if he lied about his background, he was unique and brought freshness.

The "competition" looks to be rigged to let Angela win. Lotta money involved for her to succeed, so C&T is an unexpected threat to her success.

Great episode and also pretty funny too.

I wasn't expecting the AI dog to be the actual judge. xD

Fire Brothers were pretty cool. seems like Pyotr isn't half bad himself though I don't really like him all that much.

OG Bulldog really is OG. XD

Carole and Tuesday's performance was great, always nice to hear them perform. Happy that they advanced to the next round. :)
Looking forward to next week.
