-Aries scaring Yunhua (and everyone else) was pretty funny.
-The music at around 3:20 (with the food in the background) reminded me of Animal Crossing on the Gamecube, so that was nice.
-If Quitterie is this terrified of space life, she should look into another field. Seems pretty dumb to make this one of her quirky character traits, given the context of the show.
>What's up with the boys?
Oh dang, Luca's a boy?
-That scream when Quitterie messes with that parachute plant was pretty funny.
>STOP ANALYZING CALMLY!
YOU HEARD THE LADY EVERYONE FREAK OUT!
-These people need to quit lying around, aren't their lives on the line here? Though I guess I can't blame them for wanting to take in the scenery of a different planet.
-I feel bad for Funicia, she must feel like a 3rd wheel (9th wheel?)
>The sphere returns.
Oh crap. I actually wasn't expecting this at all.
>Photographic memory.
Dumb trope to be honest, but I guess they had to give her something. I'm sure it will be used in the future.
-I like that they stuck with the name "Tur-gon".
>Zack and Quitterie were childhood friends all along!
-Honestly the drama with that entire "Quitterie going too far and yelling at Funicia and crying and storming off" felt so forced. Everthing about it.
>Nobody taught me how to love.
Oh shut up lol.
>He made that jump.
Yeah right. I would believe it if his anti-gravity shoes hadn't broken.
>Zack conveniently remembers that Kanata is some famous decathlete.
>Even though, he's a decathlete, that alone doesn't explain how he's making these jumps! It's the need he has to save his friends!
These 2 last statements alone are dumb, but combined with...
>I'm not a competitive decathlete.
Then how did Zack hear of him before? If he's just some decathlete, but isn't a competitive on, why would Zack remember hearing about that?
>Oh shoot, looks like Kanata is about to fall!
>Conveniently timed parachute plant
Oh screw you. Why create false intensity?
-I will admit that Quitterie hugging Funicia near the end was kind of nice. She seems like she meant what she said. Hopefully she doesn't go back to being a jerk to her sister.
-That laugh.
>One of us is the one who sabotaged the ship.
I will admit that this was interesting to hear.
Despite the dumb stuff in this episode, I'm still giving this show a 6 (Fine) so far. I'm just glad to have another non-Mecha space anime. The sphere returning was pretty cool even though it could have been done better. I mean, the first time it appeared, they were running for their lives and still all got caught by it, but the second time, it practically spawned right beside them. They were running, stopped and argued for a few seconds, and still outran it. Also, I wonder if the sphere can appear on the ship? That would be bad for sure.
The twist at the end of the episode was very interesting. My biggest 3 suspects are Zack, Ulgar, and Yunhua.
And with that, the first volume of the manga is adapted. 7/49 chapters. Perhaps they will be able to fit it all in one season? I have been reading the manga alongside watching the anime. There are a few bits from the manga that I wish hadn't been cut out, but for the most part it seems like a loyal adaptation so far.
Some examples of stuff that should have stayed in the show, but were cut out:
01. (Looking at pile of fruits) "This looks like a modern art exhibit."
02. Zack holding Funicia's hand when helping her find her room.
03. Zack: Kanata, I need to talk to you in private.
Kanata: Zack, I'm glad you feel that way about me but
Zack: Not that!
Honestly the adapters screwed up not leaving those in. It makes Kanata seem so much more funny and Zack seem like a sweet but stern person.
I heard the manga gets better after the first volume and REALLY good about halfway through, so I am excited.

THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Mm, an episode with survival elements. I'm almost getting a No Man's Sky kinda vibe. The monster they faced this episode shows how dangerous certain planets can be.

Gotta say though, the world they're building into this series is very colorful and unique. Hope to see more like that. The comedy still remains lighthearted as usual with the character chemistry. However, episode got more emotional this week.


>Gotta say though, the world they're building into this series is very colorful and unique.
This is definitely a big plus for the series so far.

JUUSEE said:
Good episode. Not a manga reader, but by the looks of it the adaptation's going well so far, but isn't 5 chapters quite a bit of ground to cover in one episode?

Having a traitor on board is to be expected although I was hoping this wouldn't be the case. It would be interesting if the scene where Funicia asked Zack what was wrong wasn't of him discovering that the communicator was missing, but was when he was actually removing it himself.

Characters are looking good so far, although we have yet to see much from Ulgar and Yunhua.

The mysterious sphere appears again out of nowhere. I'm thinking that this is engineered by somebody in some way or at the very least manipulated.


>Isn't 5 chapters quite a bit of ground to cover in one episode?
It really didn't cut out much.

Spaceship said:
Anyone else feel like Kanata suddenly eating the fruit and completely losing it vs. Quitterie was a little too over the top for him? Especially since he's shrugged off arguably worse barbs from her before...


Yeah, that whole bit was all very forced.

Kimurah said:
Blergh, what a load of crap and writer's convenience this episode turned out to be

They got lost in a forest in an uncharted world, yet the dumbest member of the team has photographic memory and she mentions it in the exact moment they need it the most. Same with Kanata that he's an alleged athlete, yet on all the dumb flashbacks that have been repeated over and over, it was never pointed out that he was an A class athlete. The author truly doesn't know jack shit how to foreshadow events in order to make the story advance in a natural way. Something more intuitive before entering the woods, would be if anyone in the exploring team would have marked the trees with any kind of sharp object and create a path to retreat to in case of an emergency like the one they had. The idiocy on the whole group would have gotten them killed in any other kind of media, but because it's anime and the author just loves to pave the way for them to move forward on planets with convenient atmosphere and edible fruits (and boy, the food tester just feels like another massive asspull) they will never be in real danger.

The human chain in the first episode was a pretty big mistake. They are now fighting each other and neglecting Kanata that at least tries to keep the group safe, hence this route feels like a step back. Kanata's idiotic move to go hunt a dragon makes him even less reliable despite his good intentions to keep the group together.

So sad that this contrived story is all in the name of friendship and alleged character growth.


I know write? This episode was full of conveniences. Adding on to your athlete point, note that he mentions that he is not a competitive athlete. Then how did Zack just suddenly recognize him as some famous athlete that he read about in an article? It doesn't make any sense. Not to mention Aries says that his need to help his friends helped him make that jump. So much BS. And when they make us think something crazy might happen, he just gets caught by one of those parachute plants. Very convenient. As for the photographic memory thing, it's probably the writer's attempt to make Aries useful in the future. It was still pretty dumb though.

Welll, that felt disappointing, I guess I set my expectations too high.. I really hate the cast, it's insanely generic, I'm so tired of characters like them. The first planet was pretty bizarre I guess, but it didn't make me go like "wow" or anything, it felt rather...boring. And the person that cut communicators, I can easily guess who it was: the glasses quiet girl. An obvious guess, I suppose.


I feel like it might be her too.

phantomfandom said:
I think this anime lack fanservice, next planets better have hot springs. Kanata must have nice muscle...


>I think this anime lack fanservice
Good.

aLotQuestion_ said:
Not sure if anyone noticed, but if you use Rokka no Yuusha mindset to think about it.
The culprit could be Aries, who cut off the communicator.

First point I found in this episode that doesn't make sense, she claimed that she doesn't has much friends despite being cheerful and good in communicating.

Second point is that, she has pink hair you should know what that mean in a survival genre.


That would definitely be really cool. If she does end up being the villain, I hope they execute it well, because so far this show has poor execution. It would be a shame if such an interesting twist was executed poorly.

Rowan_F said:
I got really confused five minutes in. They all walk onto the planet with their helmets on so I think "oh yeah, the atmosphere must not be breathable" but then a second later they all just have the helmets off. I thought it was a mistake like "wait, where did the helmets go, why aren't the choking?" Eventually I realised, it was just bad directing in that bit.

Rest of the episode was good though. I like the imagination put into the plant life.


Good eye. I didn't notice that.

trenchantbaka said:
For the people saying the characters are generic; yes they are. They are very strictly based on shounen tropes. But does that mean that this show won't be any fun whatsoever? No. The manga of this anime was another example of a case where I enjoyed a story with generic characters. So I think people should fix their expectations by now.


I'm glad you enjoy the character, but a lot of people (myself included) don't. No need to get upset about it. Some people have higher expectations.

shanimebib said:
It's definitely gonna be a complete adaptation. So, let's see what we have here for the source material:

- Ranked in Kono Manga ga Sugoi 2019 (3rd Place). √
- Winner of the Manga Taisho Award for 2019. √
- Majority of the readers opinion: That second half of the story.√
- Nothing but positive reviews (8/10 or more) in most of the popular sites.√

Ah! People will go like "Oh, this is so generic and boring." and then leave early and then come back again when the overall score jumps roughly around episode 6 or 7. Hmm. I can totally see that happening.

Also, weekly appreciation of the beauty that is Quitterie. ❤


So what? The manga is highly appraised. Does that mean people aren't allowed to criticize the show based on the 2 episodes we've been given so far? From what I've heard, the manga really starts to get good at the halfway mark, but for me and many other so far, it comes off as generic. This is a discussion board for the anime version and so far the anime is just average-ish, in my opinion. Don't get so upset that people aren't enjoying it so far.
Also Quitterie is WORST girl.

syncrogazer said:
I wouldn't even call this writing, it's just shit strung together at break-neck speed. I laughed when she said she didn't need friends and one flashback and a scary situation later she loves her friends. Should have stopped when Aries revealed her photographic memory. Oh and by the way the guy is an athlete, fuck these people. Awful.

The comedy in the beginning was kind of fun, but I don't think I can sit through another episode of this. Planet hopping space adventures have never looked so shitty.


You pretty much summed up how I feel.

Nim0174 said:

gotta hope all these fact claiming complainers drop it fast so we don't need to read their unconstructive comments anymore xD


They won't. They get off on the reactions they get from people who actually enjoy and defend the show. Best policy is just to ignore. I got into it with one of those jackasses earlier today and it was a mistake. Don't feed the trolls.


Brushing off any critique as haters or trolls is so incredibly immature. Discussion boards have different opinions. Get over it. Seriously.

Trentin said:
Not as good as the beginning but still really good, the new planets are hopefully going to be really interesting if they are all up to par with this one which makes me really excited. Not the best cast so far but they are slowly growing on me, depending on how long it is since the manga isn't that long I feel like there is too many characters, this can be chalked up to the fact that it hasn't had time to properly characterize them yet but I do worry that a few of them might end up to be a bit weak.

The Revelation at the end of the episode makes me even more excited to continue with this series, If it continues this strongly I'll be very happy.


Variety of planets is what I look forward to most in Space shows. I'm looking forward to the potential this anime has.

Don't you people have something better to do? I wouldn't think so but prove me wrong.

But hey, good on boosting the comments on the discussion thread.

The trailer for the series promised something entirely more edgy and dramatic, and I think I probably speak for a lot of us when I say I'm wrestling with what my expectations were going in.


Ikr... idk what they were thinking making the PV what's probably the most intense moment in the entire friggin series. Way to troll literally everyone who saw the PV and thought this would be really intense sci-fi thriller or something...

There's no problem with people debating, except you guys don't offer anything constructive and worthwhile to the discussion except trashing it and calling it "shit" and "not even writing". OF COURSE you're going to be called "trolling" and "rude" if you word things like that, what else would you expect? I actually do think your gripes with the series thus far have a point, but the way you word it just leaves a bad taste in everyone's mouths.

This might be my entryway into space sci-fi. Never really been a fan before this, but the planets act more like a fantasy setting than a sci-fi setting so it's very enjoyable. Very colorful and creative, the trampoline tree scene was like some real life 3D platformer game. The drama with the sister was kind of meh though.

I watched the first episode and I was disappointed by the generic characters and lack of common sense. I decided to keep watchimg hoping it would get better but I was wrong.

I believe the characters to be generic and have no real depth outside of their trope but that doesn't necessarily mean they are dislikable. Quitterie seems to have no real reason for being extrememly rude other than that her mother around which is no justification for her bitchiness. Im the first episode Kanata wastes so much thrust to get to her instead of letting his momentum go. Some people say that they're just highschoolers but it's just common sense. Thats the major gripes I have with it and why I see it as bad but if you like it good to you.

I like them as a team but most of the characters don't seem very unique.
The character development we got in this episode for the tsundere girl was mediocre and it just felt way too rushed imo, guess we'll have to wait to see if she'll indeed try to act more mature.
And the one who cut the communicator is most likely the loner guy, if it isn't him i'll be surprised.

Hmm.. everything aside, I wonder if this will be one planet per episode or we'll get some episodes with trouble in space or something like that.

Well, it's episode two and I'm still finding the comedy quite terrible and out of place during most of the scenes. I guess this will be my biggest complaint when I finish this series.

Also, Quitterie was even more annoying here than in the previous episode, especially with that outburst against Funicia but at least, it seems she will stop being a bother from now on, I hope.

Overall, not really impressed by this episode. It had lots of conveniences happening and some resolutions from the cast were rather absurd to say the least.

P.S.: The OST is being great so far tho.

I call bullshit! How can Funi look so much like Quitterie but then they drop on us that they aren’t actually related?! What’s the point of making them look so similar then! Lieesssss her mom had an affair or something. long lost sister she wants to claim is adopted! Either that or it’s her cousin or something.

Surprisingly really good. This show is really intense. Like, wow. There's so much potential with it!

Can manga reader spoil me on some things? Plz reply in spoiler tags if you can so anime-only people won't be spoiled.
1. The ball thing will be explained, right? Is it natural or not natural?
2. Is there romance later on? If so, is there gonna be a love triangle?
3. Does this show get much darker? Or is it gonna be around the same level as current?
4. Does the manga have a conclusive ending?

here is what i can agree with from what i have read of this thread and this anime.
1. Pacing does seem rushed
2. the laugh at the end oh my god.
3. power of friend and all that generic stuff

Here is my bit of speculation the Bad guy if you will is most likely the loner trajectory genies from EP 1 after all from a sort of realistic stretch the black orb is a mobile black hole transporter of sorts using that would require some skill and quick trajectory math for targeting and what not.

we may even have a second bad guy in the noting special girl with black hair trying not to stand out or be memorable... bad guy or observer trait i think.


the blonde co captain is overly analytical for some reason which leads me to believe this whole thing is a big test of some kind.


any manga readers who would like to spoil me on the whole thing feel free.

Holy shit, I'm enjoying this. At first I thought it would be some generic space show with high school students, but this was super engaging. The characters have really good chemistry with one another, and the setting in interesting. Each episode seems to have so much development and significance. Really hoping it continues like this.

are you incapable of comprehension, must be the 2nd time im asking this.

@zemrood good point actually pointing out that there is only 1 route, that is weird gotta agree with you there.


And compare it with pretty much any other sci-fi title either anime or western movies. Life in planets is scarse to almost unexistant between different systems, but in here it's incredibly "convenient" that they have a simple straight line of habitable planets that will have the right resources for them to refill and keep their "roadtrip" going. Yes, galaxies have billions of stars but their proximity to provide a sustainable enviroment is laughably hoodgepodge from the writer's perspective. But then again, you already stated that you believe whatever shit comes out of the writers work, so there's no point for you to keep barking at me because you're just a gullible guy that buys any scenario depicted.

You're already agreeing with me that this route wheter it's between a single system or different systems in a galaxy is awfully convenient in terms of sustainable life in these planets.

I don't like how most of them are so carefree on the new discovered planet where everything could be dangerous.

I'm really not sure if I like this anime or not, the characters are acting stupid and immature in first half of both episodes, then something dangerous happends and everyone are magicly united and acting different. I know that they are kids that are lost in space, but still it is ruining the immersion.

WOW, Episode 2, and I'm still NOT at all disappointed!

5 chapters from the manga feels like the pacing went out of draft, BUT somehow this episode really makes use of the fast pacing to its ultimate strengths. Impressive and a hell of a job well done, if this keeps up we may see a FULL, PROPER adaptation.

Kanata really is still that running joke of a leader, but his leadership tells throughout the episode. It's not like a choice that he had to follow, it's the "do or die" moments that made him that way.

EVEN BETTER, Quitterie's backstory and her relationship with the adopted Funicia. Hard to see someone's life ravaged of parentship, even as Zack's childhood friend (which Quitterie still isn't fond of).

A traitor on the ship??? What gives? And that "black hole" sphere, what is the purpose of that appearance?

Wishing that the next episode will come now. I want more!

The Critique is so lame for most people here, probably should've dropped the show immediately from first episode when they were just floating in space with those thin space suits(So people know, Spacesuits protect your from debris in space because there's a lot of small debris moving around up there). I saw a complaint that they had no helmets on inside the planet. Man, there's life on that planet and it had a lot of earth-like qualities. There is oxygen, Remember when every single avenger on Titan was breathing completely and totally fine on what is basically Mars, no one said anything. I have a habit of ignoring scientific elements in shows because they don't really have any substance.

I find this pretty enjoyable, the most unfortunate part of this show is the Shounen troupes. Tsundere was annoying the first episode and is annoying the second(I like most Tsunderes too like Senjougahara). Kanata needed his entire physique explained for some reason. 200 IQ dude will alway and I mean always have plot armor to fix every problem, and it's going to annoy me eventually.

But I enjoy the atmosphere and the simplicity of the adventure. I'm not even interested in the mystery of who did it .

I think this show waste a lot of it's potential by getting invested in all these troupes. But again, It's enjoyable.

With there initial search parameters, they weren't even able to find one route. After adjusting and compromising on those parameters they were able to find one route. There might've been more routes but those would require relaxing the parameters even further.

With there initial search parameters, they weren't even able to find one route. After adjusting and compromising on those parameters they were able to find one route. There might've been more routes but those would require relaxing the parameters even further.


that also makes sense, the parameters for it could be highly sensitive

For all the underage pseudo critics in this thread bickering about the lack of foreshadowing, this is was just the second episode. We are still in the exposition phase of the manga. The characters and their traits are still being introduced.

For the traitor, my money is on the Aries (pink hair girl). she is the least suspicious one and perfect for the plot twist, also lets not forget evil laugh at the end!

one big issue I have with this episode....maybe it was part of what they programed the computer to check for, but we don't even know if the palnet we go to would have compatible foods, it might not kill us, but the meat and such might not use any or all of the proteins we need, their evolution and type of chromosones could be completly foreign to us, and mght as well be ating packing peanuts, might fill you but give you no food.


Any possible alien lifeform would almost definitely be carbon based and similar to our own because only carbon has the ability to form long chains which are stable. This means they would most likely be able to digest the food found in those planets assuming they aren't poisonous.


Also the ending concides with my one theory that this could be part of the camp test, someone would need to know what was going on to help with any problems and try to keep them on track.

Which would put my guess of the captain being the one, as he was the one that yelled out put on your helmets like he knew what was going on, or the first kid to touch the sphere, as a way to set the events off just my guesses.

Nice theory but that's completely off.

Hmm. I really liked the first episode but this one took a sillier route, bland backstories. I'm going to keep on watching though, I like the premise. Just not what I was hoping for, I guess I was expecting something along the lines of Made in Abyss with the exploration...

It's just the 2nd episode but I don't understand anymore why I'm liking this one so much. This might be really the anime of the season for me.
Not sure which is more cancerous...The Facebook comment sections or MAL anime reviews.

there is the chance of silicon, but I was thinking more, we only use 4 base pairs out of what like 15 potential, a animal in theory could have 4 base pairs with none of the ones we use. It's actually one of the kill switch ideas for man made life to avoid problems, add a base pair to the animal thats no found in nature and would have to be provided by us, so if it escaped the lab it wouldn't survive long being unable to get the missing base pair.

The first half of this episode was so funny and then BAM... that twist at the end there!

I don't understand how Funi & Quitterie aren't blood related yet look identical!

Also, Aries has the best laugh ever haha

I actually don't think the backstories are bland lol. The basic premise is unoriginal, but the way they approach it and the emotions the characters are pretty cool. The adoption backstory and the absent parent backstory is really common, but they're combined in Quitterie's backstory to make it feel genuine - her mother never care for her daughter but still had another one and expected Quitterie to love her sister even though she never received love from her mother.

Similarly with Kanata, the dead mentor and the strict parent backstory are both very common, but they're combined in a way that it doesnt seem super cliched? I mean Kanata still picks up track again even though he quit due to his father's forced expectations, but he does it for a different reason.

Also, I'm pretty sure there's more to both of them. There's no way Quitterie and Funicia are actually adopted when they look exactly alike.

I call bullshit! How can Funi look so much like Quitterie but then they drop on us that they aren’t actually related?! What’s the point of making them look so similar then! Lieesssss her mom had an affair or something. long lost sister she wants to claim is adopted! Either that or it’s her cousin or something.

You are just begging to get spoilt when you make comments like these.


Lol true, but also it just goes to show the cover story was just weak. You can’t trick me!

What do does the show mean when it says they are not related?! They look almost exactly the same. They have all the same features.

Great epised and I'm calling this Quitterie and Funicia are F***** clones!
Funicia can't be adopted and looks so similar (eyes, skin, hair have the same color) and the fact that Quitterie didn't had a father and her mother was too busy working and lack of feelings towards her children. This looks too suspicious.

Also I see Aries is trying win competition for most forced and awkward laugh but Tidus and Yuna will always be on podium!

I am loving the hell out of this, Kanata's got balls of fcking steel. Tan blonde girl is a bitch in the making and guesses on who the a-hole fcking up their ships are? most obvious ones are the edgy looking dude and glasses girl, but maybe the author will go with someone not obvious like the blonde dude.
Best characters so far are Kanata,Aries and IQ 200 dude.
Can't even remember their names properly besides the 2 good ones.
Also.. was Aries' laugh supposed to be that awkward? or can Minase Inori just not laugh during the session? cause that was such an awkward laugh lol.

Man, writing in this show is so bad. Something along the lines of middle school play. Characters are either spouting tired cliches or acting like complete retards. Waltzing like nothing into an unknown territory, touching plants and animals that could easily be dangerous and going on flashback trips that have shit to do with their situation but are supposed to replace actual character development.

You can't call this show good. You can call it enjoyable if you get a kick from B class movies or corny fanfictions written for shits and giggles, but not good if you've ever read or watched something of value...

Funicia and Quiterrie are not real siblings?? That's hard to believe cuz they are so similar (like the eye colors and skin)... I couldn't even imagine the girls aren't related by blood :/ I'm shocked and also surprised by the revelation.

What the... Aries's laught is... very exquisite. Very forced in my opinion ^^;

Someone just sabotage the ship? Who would do something like this :( That's terrible!

Great episode! There was a lot of emotions. Just by watching these two first episodes, I feel like this will be one of the best anime of 2019! Very good and I can't wait to watch the rest ^^

What's bothering you about people debating. That's one of the things discussion boards are for.



There's no problem with people debating, except you guys don't offer anything constructive and worthwhile to the discussion except trashing it and calling it "shit" and "not even writing". OF COURSE you're going to be called "trolling" and "rude" if you word things like that, what else would you expect? I actually do think your gripes with the series thus far have a point, but the way you word it just leaves a bad taste in everyone's mouths.


First of all, I haven't said either of those.
Second of all, I agree that calling it "shit" would be annoying if people were only using one word arguments. But everyone is writing more than that.
As for me, as in what I have written, what would be some examples of some of the stuff I have said that leaves a bad taste in people's mouths or is "rude" or "trolling"?

The trailer for the series promised something entirely more edgy and dramatic, and I think I probably speak for a lot of us when I say I'm wrestling with what my expectations were going in.


Ikr... idk what they were thinking making the PV what's probably the most intense moment in the entire friggin series. Way to troll literally everyone who saw the PV and thought this would be really intense sci-fi thriller or something...


I heard the second half gets pretty crazzy. I'm looking forward to that.

This might be my entryway into space sci-fi. Never really been a fan before this, but the planets act more like a fantasy setting than a sci-fi setting so it's very enjoyable. Very colorful and creative, the trampoline tree scene was like some real life 3D platformer game. The drama with the sister was kind of meh though.


You might like some of Leiji Matsumoto's work or you might enjoy Cowboy Bebop. Judging from your profile, you're still really early in the anime game. There's a lot of good shows out there.

i love how no one is talking about how amazing Kanata was risking his life to save Funi. he deserves to be the captain not just because of that but because he can definitely make good decisions under pressure and keeping the team together wen hope seems lose. great episode


I mean that's definitely a thing a good person would do, but everything about that scene was stupid/ridiculous in my opinion. The way Zack coincidentally remembers that stuff about Kanata, the fact he made those jumps at all, and that "the need to help his friends is what caused him to make that jump", and the forced intensity at the end where it looked like he was going to fall.

I agree, that was kind of weird. It just seems like a poor choice of character design. It would make you assume that they were designed to be blood sisters at first, but the Mangaka changed his mind and just didn't redesign her. But I'm assuming too much here. There might be a reason for it.

Charce's reaction to Aries having a photographic memory seems suspicious. Like he's done something that she might notice.


You might be on to something. Interesting catch.

I hope it does. Made In Abyss put a lot of thought into it's creatures. The other thing I liked about Made In Abyss is how much the tone shifted in episode 10, so if this show had a tone shift, that would be pretty cool.

On the first half I agree with you, but as for the second paragraph, I would say that kind of thing is mostly subjective. It's a relative thing. Some people would consider it good so far.

That was really weird. It makes me wonder if they were originally supposed to be blood sisters but the writer changed his mind. Who knows. There might be a reason for it.
>What the... Aries's laught is... very exquisite. Very forced in my opinion ^^;
Yeah, I'm surprised more people are not saying this. It definitely felt like a forced quirky character trait.

[quote=Spaceship message=57940846]Anyone else feel like Kanata suddenly eating the fruit and completely losing it vs. Quitterie was a little too over the top for him? Especially since he's shrugged off arguably worse barbs from her before...



I AGREE!!! It was very exaggerated and very obvious that they were pushing for a 'nakama power' sort of scenario to resolve the conflict.

This episode was a mix of like and dislike for me. Liked the start and end but hated the middle part of the episode. Kanata still continues to annoy me. Anyway, I plan to keep watching because the story seems to be getting more interesting.
