Lol, Ginga beam.
More exposition this time, and we get a lot of explanations. Action scenes were pretty good again, and the insert song was just as awesome as in ep 1. ^^

Also fuck yeah, Sakamoto Maaya! How could I miss that she's voicing one of the characters in this show? I'm dissapointed in myself. >_<

Best thing about everything was still the Kara no Kyoukai commercial after the ED though, lol.

Ginga beam FTW lol.

This episode did explain things a bit more, which makes the story more understandable.

They had the same insert song from the 1st episode in this episode, which kind of surprised me. The song is pretty epic though, so no complaints there.

Pretty good action sequence, but I'm wondering if the action will start getting repetitive (and predictable) if it always ends up with one mech battle per episode, with Takuto always winning. It's probably too early on in the series to say that though; we are only on the second episode ^.^;

Kuro I don't think he always winning, come on it's 25 episodes, those people he was against was just low classes.
He will probably goes against stronger opponent, and yeah those cyborg mecha could only be on that time, but people there want to make those cyborg goes for real and not only in that time space.

Yeah I like that song that girl that was singing at that cage, lol why putting a girl in there. :S

My favorite insert song were on the ending. I like that very much.

Ah well, it is too early on in the series to make general predictions like I did, so it's my bad.

I have trust in Bones when it comes to anime series; they have a pretty solid track record, and have produced some of my favorite animes, so I'll be following this show no matter what lol.

It's not the first time some scene are similar or reused in super robot anime though. Aside from bad guy entering cybergasket & entering Zero Time, the whole battle scene is new & fresh so that's not really a bad thing anyway, it's for flashy purpose.

Nice exposition & Sarina is quite an interesting character, looking forward to see her assisting Takuto in confronting Glittering Crux Brigade.

Tau Ginga Beam is epic and lol XD Next episode will have fabulous sword fight hell yeah!!!

I guess they should have made ”Taw Ginga Beam” more fabulous and glaring, like Buster Beam of Top2! Last moment of "Tetri-Auto" was plain.
in this episode, the Enemy was a mecha of high-mobility and had and inclination of out-fighting, so there was not much infightings. It's a pity. well, I can hope they will have an intense battle on next episode.

manager and vice-manager were cute. and enemy girls really looked like perverts...
Their flamboyance match Galactic Pretty Boy's fabulousness!

That's because I've realized MAL rating is shit.

(Why does gg keep translating it as Fish Girl? I mean, I know that's what Sakana-chan means, but I think that Sakana-chan is actually her name)

TAU GINGA BEEEEEAM! :D This show is such a great combination of fabulous and awesome that I'm surprised to see that it manages to work so well.

"Virgin?" made me lol hard.

Damn, these have to be some of the hottest female villains I've seen in a long time. Especially the black-haired one with DEM LEGS!

Until next time, KIRABOSHI!~

So we get bishounen and slutty evil women. Hmm... Add in Giant Mechs, and shiny animation; I might as well mix the genres to get a Mahou Shounen. Although that 'Virgin?' got me confused.

So that insert song is so awesome that i get pumped up even if the fight wasn't more than just visually appealing.
I for one have a personal guilty pleasure in shows where there are actually unknowns that require me to think. I hate straightforwardness; so i like how we are still in the dark.

Couldn't find Sakana-chan's insert but found OP full....

The battle song is so beautiful.

Plot still a little hazy.
Still wondering about Shindou's main role.
3/5 for the episode.

It was a good episode. They explained a bit more of story so we can understand a little.
We see the Glittering Crux Brigade and I have to say those villains looks very sexy. Like in the last episode we see the fish girl singing and Ginga Bishounen kicking the virgin with Tau Ginga Beam. I think he will lose when he fights Scarlet Kiss.

Good shit. Still building up the setting. Takuto is surprisingly innocent. Dat soundtrack. Ginga beam was a new addition. Wondering whether the cybodies will get weapons (it's uncommon for the mech not to have a gun, sword, something to put in that hand.)

Is it just me or was the leader of the science team super hot?

They made a gay joke about takuto within the show. That is hilarious.

The bad guys having the ability to interrupt any moment for a one on one battle without any particular effort or consequence could be bad depending on how the show plays that.

Edit: also good to hear that the commercial at the end was for kara no kyoukai. Ima check that out.

I had my doubts last week, but this episode has proved that Star Driver is, without a doubt, absolutely fabulous.

A little better than the first one. I find Takuto a little annoying... He can't be THAT innocent!
And it's so obvious whose are the villains behind those masks.

If preview indicates anything, we will have sword duel :D

Tauburn has 2 star swords, Sapphire & Emerald in addition of "Tau Ginga Beam" attack. Not sure about the other Cybody weapon but the next ep enemy Cybody, Tzadikt use star sword Amethyst.

The music background and sound effects are really good but it looks like a kiddie show.
Like when we were small, we imitate all those silly posture and silly lines that the main character does.

Yeah, all that fanservice and nudity is sure for kids alright.

Seriously, have you not seen a Super Robot anime? They used to do that posing and silly lines all the time.

Good episode.. Tauburn is kinda like Gundam G.. where the mecha moves as how the pilot moves and not with buttons or control panels.. and also, they say the name of the technique their using xD..

Opening is really great.. and that girl in the cage's song was amazing.. hope they could translate it..

And the fanservice is way off the charts.. hope villains will always be that hot.. and virgin?! lol.. kisses involved again :D

well I don't really care about Mal's rating, since trolls can either make or break a show.. I just watch the show that I like and don't look at the rankings..
