don't know why you'd say that, unless you're talking about when chidori credited her with providing the strategy to destroy behemoth. if so, that wasn't her, it was a voice in chidori's head, i assume that this voice is why she's referred to as a Wispered.

personally, i am very very tired of love triangles.

Don't know how far Tessa's going to pursue Sousuke though, since she's his commander after all. Wouldn't she try to keep a professional relationship between them and restrict her feelings for him?
Anyway this eps was meant to be quite intense, I imagine, but I found it rather boring (and Tessa was being rather useless). But Kurz finally got to do something at least.

for whatever reason, I always favored Tessa in the triangle. Probably because Kaname gets on my last nerve and is tsundere to the extreme. I enjoyed the episode though and was kind of surprised how intense it got. Was really wondering about Melissa's safety at first.

Starting to get bored of this anime. The humor was funny in the beginning, but now it is just growing old.

You know you guys, there is a much more pressing matter at hand rather than the love triangle. That being that a gigantic Godzilla sized robot was taken down by a shot to the groin.

And just when I thought I saw everything in anime...

The love triangle was completely expected and extremely unoriginal. Plus it looks like this arc is over and a new one is to begin... and hopefully the next arc will be better since they're going back to school... so hopefully some better humor.

Yet another love triangle. The problem with them is that in the end only two things can happen. Either one girl ends up with him and the other is crushed(which is sad) or he doesnt end up with either of them(which is lame). All I can do is continue to root for Chidori.

This arc was a huge step down from the first one, which was actually really good. I've never really been a fan of Tessa, so I could really care less for her part in this story. I thought the "villains" in this arc weren't that great as well.

yea this arc wasnt that good. i fastforwarded thru alot of the boring dialogue and even more boring mech fighting. as much as i like tessa, she was not as dynamic in this first season as in TSR or fumoffu.

I thought this episode was great, even if the characters of this plot, in the end, weren't really that good. Anyway, I just hit the mid-point of the series, I expect good things yet.

Hmm Yeah this episode was kinda boring too imo,
the fight was supposed to be really big, but it kinda ended in 1 shot?
I donno what everyone else hates about it, but i think
the Love Triangle between Tessa, Kaname & Sousuke will be interesting,
even though its pretty obvious that Kaname will end up with Sousuke since Tessa is Sousuke's commander.
Ahh well i'm still enjoying this series,
looking forward to episode 13 !

the way how the mecha fight ended is a bit silly, the mecha designers fault i guess

however, the ending for the "sister and brother" looks fine

Well, if they create a mecha that big, of course it has to have some kind of flaw/weakness. Or it's up against super-mechas.

Lol it's been a while since I've seen a love triangle, anyways that was bold of Tessa never expected that from her.

I dunno why everyone is getting tired of it I feel it's still awesome.

The whole arc was kind of dumb. The villains act like angry children, acting purely out of spite and being swayed by a few minutes talking to someone "nice". They may be disaffected and young, but they act more like toddlers than teenagers (not the mention that only the fake brother and sister seemed to be teenager; everyone else is a full-grown man). It makes the whole thing feel rather childish. I know this series is marked "shounen" but right now it feels like it's being aimed at really little kids.

Love triangles are usually an annoyance because they're usually dishonest storytelling; given that the first eight episodes try to develop a romance between Sousuke and Kaname I don't believe for a second that Tessa actually has a chance. So the triangle is just a distraction, something for the show to chew on endlessly rather than advance the actual story.

More like it's aimed at high school kids, hence why they're in high school, and all miraculously in high school age ranges.

I know if I watched this in high school I'd totally dig the anime for what it's worth. I mean, dat fanservice with a rather serious scene in the last arc was nice with Kurz eyeballing Kaname.

Right now this love triangle just seem like fodder for more repetitive gags with Sousuke's lack of common sense and Kaname's violent and insecure tsundere behaviour.

Not sure if I'll actually enjoy Fumoffu at this point. If they just do rinse and repeat with tsundere Kaname, ditzy Tessa, and nonsensical Sousuke, it will seem more like annoyance than fun. I do regret not watching this as a target demographic. I'd probably rate it as high as Code Geass. You can see the blatant demographic it's trying to target with the constant mix of immaturity and the high school setting. Alas, what can ya do.

Still walls of texts aside, we're going back to high school with the next episode, I guess.

Alright end to the arc. Felt the mecha battle wasn't as good as I thought it would be but what can you do.
And a love triangle now? I find them to be...tragic. As much as I prefer Tessa over the most annoying tsundere out Chidori, its pretty obvious whose gonna win this 'battle', there us really no point.

what the fudge did I watch... why did Tessa embrace the enemy that just tried to kill ALL of them and also destroyed so much?!?! Because she knows he's as good as dead or what? that was so stupid I don't even...

and now, love triangle with tessa that can't do shit by herself yet is actually the captain. if she doesn't improve and get some nice development...... I see myself getting more and more upset at this anime =.=
so much potential wasted.

So far the anime has shown Tessa doesn't want to hurt people, which is ironic because of her occupation. Remember when they were bombing the research lab? She wanted them to time it to be the least amount of deaths possible. She also appeared to not be to happy seeing it get blown to smithereens. Also she could have had Sousuke kill that issue dude right off the bat but she didn't. She could tell issue dude was a goner and had messed up family relationships. She was just trying to make his last moment enjoyable. .-.
