I'm wondering if that new girl is some sort of assist droid grim reaper or something, come to take them away when their power is about to run out.

Other than that was interesting to see Eris acting like a cat along with human emotions, how the ears were low when she tried to facade everything was ok.

Now to wait for subs so I can see just wth this episode was about.

I wanted to see a catguy too <3

Didn't like this episode too much though. There was too much of Eris feeling sorry for herself, although the singing was nice.

not a bad episode, I actually like that spacemen song( loved Aoi singing), and I'm glad Rauri didn't get included in Kio's harem which I was dreading when she was introduced....sad that she only has half a year before she dies though....

I'm glad the entire cast has a good singing voice >_>

Also glad they're not trying to throw in a plot or something, it would've been so bad.

Edit: The Grandfather IV. That is all.



Oh, and Armagoodoon.

In other words we didn't even know much of are own planet back then, which just proves how random this Anime is.

The beginning of this episode looked like it was copied from Star trek Voyager, the makers must have been Star trek fans judging from previous episodes as well.

Also the part where one of the girls got angry at Nanami for not knowing about Captain Future, and that girl calling it a master piece.
Yet in the background there was a poster with the Grandfather 4 on it, in other words the get angry about not knowing Captain Future which no one ever heard of but mock The Godfather movies.
The ones that made this Anime should be ashamed.

I skimped through practically the entire episode. Really tempted to drop it but there's only a few episodes left, might as well see how it ends.

It was nice and everything, certainly gave you something to think about, and some memorable dialogue.

It was just out of character from what weve seen so far, and certainly not what id expect at episode 9 already, but still independently, a special episode.

Neither did I, I don't think it's good when you're in the 9th episode of an anime and a weird episode comes along that doesn't make much sense.

Well whatever, the song was nice.

Hmmm alot of ppl seem to have missed the purpose behind this episode. That being to give more depth to the cathians and assistdroids, ya know, to show that theres more to them than cute little helpers and that the cathians haven't always been this laid back n peaceful.

Personally I'm glad she chose to die because that shows a hella lot more depth, specially for a harem anime : / , to her character than latching onto Kio for random reasons. While its sad it shows her love for her original master has stayed with her all this time and shows that she herself is tired, as most ppl get once they reach that stage where your satisfied with your life.

Edit: the singing was a bit lame though haha ^_^;

The fuck is Captain Future anyway? ┐('~`;)┌
And Eris' speech about the past, didn't make an ounce of sense.
Oh gawd, that insert song was plain horrible. Oh well, can't really expect a robot to be able to sing, right? (ED-version of it was better, though not good, not in a thousand years.)

Definitely a change of pace for this show, which is fine. I think this could use a second season though....I don't know if a proper ending could be fit into the last few episodes.

It isn't mockery, they just avoid using the real name because they don't want to have and copyright problems.
Seriously did you wake up on the wrong side of the bed?

Anyway nothing really happened and the drama wasn't something i expected at this point but what the hell it actually was kind of nice for dreamers like me who love space. This episode gave me the impression that the creator of this scenario somewhere in his heart may want to create a space opera and not just fanservice harem girl shows.

The song was just tolerable enough. With this type of show there was no way i could sympathize with the robot, or Eris. Hence i sat there bored for the 'dramatic' parts. That and from a logical stand point Eris was way to worried.

Even though there wasn't much action in this episode (none at all really), I still really liked it a lot. I loved the way they told us a lot about the back story between them and the Assistaroids and why Eris was troubled by it. The song was nice too.

A slow paced episode like this once in a while isn't all that bad! =)

Well, that was some bittersweet feeling.
I wanted to know more about this assistadroid history with humans.
Also, that scenery of Earth in all is glory always leaves a nice and warm feeling inside of me.

I'm pretty disappointed by a lot of you guys, to be honest.
This episode wasn't boring at all, just not what you would have expected.
But well, adding depth to anime isn't really fitting these days...

Anyway, I wonder how long 'Periods' are; I doubt that 1 Period = 1 Year; it might work that way, but the amount of time would be completely different;
1 year is the amount of time our planet needs to circle around the sun - I don't think that the Catian planet is exactly the same in matters of distance and angle.

Anyway, the Insert Song was sweet, hoping for a quick release <3

*goes to listen to Captain Future OST*

I'm sorry but this was the most boring episode. nothing with the plot. no development with any of the girls. a long boring song and a pointless new character. what a waste of an episode.
