WHY THE HELL IS NOTO MAMIKO IN THIS ANIME? VOICING A GUY?? I'm so sick of her. Trying to get away from her after watching Clannad (Kotomi), Shakugan no Shana (Konoe/Hecate), Zero no Tsukaima (Tiffania), School Rumble (Tenma), Elfen Lied (Yuka), sola (Matsuri), and something else that I can't remember, I'M GETTING REALLY SICK OF HER DOING THE SAME VOICE OVER AND OVER AGAIN.

WHAT WERE THEY THINKING????? AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA

Anyway yeah, aside from that, I like this show so far.

Now Sousuke has to save Chidori and towards the end he is using his feelings more than logic. I wonder if that will work all right.

Sousuke's kicking ass and chewing bubble gum, and he's all outta gum. Next ep he's gonna kick ass in a robot, save Chidori, AND complete the mission.

Sousuke is a BAMF. I like the alternating action and comedy, it suits the series and characters, as well as provides a nice change of pace. This series is getting pretty good and its only the 4th episode!

You mean he's like a teenage-version of Arnold Schwarzenegger? I can cope with that.

A decent rising tension episode, but it's much too early for cool-headed professional Sousuke to be sweating over his feelings for Chidori. Was that one brief conversation at the train station supposed to have made him fall in love with her? Just because there's a romance story going on doesn't mean it has to jump to that stage immediately.

This series is developing a distressingly strong habit of sloppy overstatement which is a real shame as it's mostly made of strong stuff.

Chidori's reaction to being stuck in a pod for a while by terrorists isn't very believable, though. "I don't want to do sleep-learning"? Is she supposed to be stupid or something?

Meh, was okay. I prefer my protagonists to have unfaltering logic, not personal feelings which cloud it irrationally.`

Sounds like you just want your protagonists to be robots.
Robots would never let something like love cloud their judgment! -_-

Yeah, definitely amped up the action with a fairly graphic murder, bomb, and some hand to hand combat. Damn cliffhanger at the end!

Starting to gear up the main story, it begins to take shape the figure of the mysterious Gauron. Unfortunately the quality of the video I'm wading, is not the best, but it is not so despicable as to ruin the usability. Too bad there is little action and little pathos, and yet, I remembered it differently; or it is that my standard, since then, have risen by much. :P

That was pretty intense. The sensei of the class almost died. Without Sousuke making this distraction Gauron would have shoot.

That's such a crazy situation especially with the bomb at the plane. They really want to kill everyone.
Also the first time we saw Sousuke fight. Not bad that guy had no chance at all.

I wonder how Gauron survived. Normally he should been dead.

And now even with Sousuke beeing a pro he's affected by his feelings for Kaname. I hope nothing will go wrong.

Sousuke is letting his feelings get in the way of the mission, not sure if those were flashbacks of Kaname (or a similar looking girl) or just thoughts of what could happen to her.

Not bad although one thing about this series that's pretty distracting is the military "Captain" is like a 14 year old girl. I hate it when anime series do this; it's so unrealistic.

Best episode yet. They're finally moving the plot forward a bit and letting us see what the heck is going on.
