I feel like I've watched the same episode 3 times. I hope episode four changes things up a bit. Random stuff in the beginning, evil guys plotting, fish girl starts singing, then they send in another guy to fight Takuto, he loses, and he gets his wings badge thingy taken away.

Give me a rival for him or something. Show us more of a plot. Please! And another thing: Why is it all of the females in this seduce guys into fighting Takuto, or doing anything else. It's degrading for both genders.

This show is okay, but it hasn't shown me anything groundbreaking yet.

Fishgirl's singing is annoying.

Something that came out of the blue from someone like Takuto. A part of his gayness just died with that line. Anyways, great episode! I wonder why Takashi's mask didn't break.


Yeay xD

Well, you see the other guy who asked him ''how was it even when you have the mark?''

Are they ever going to ake a different approach? I mean, every episode has been the same. Slice of life/school drama, and then random mecha fighting. It's starting to bore me now.

I feel like if I had watched this when it was coming out, it would be a lot more tolerable. I'm still enjoying it, but I feel like I would enjoy it more if it was a weekly thing.

Also, I'm not annoyed by the song. I really like Monochrome. But what gets me is that, when they're powering up their Cybody, they use the same damn animation. EXACTLY THE SAME. I get it, it's pretty. But we don't need to see it every episode.

Other than that, I enjoyed it. I always end up cracking up laughing from how fabulous Takuto gets. I just cannot see him being straight.

Annoyed seeing the same exact snapshot of the giant robot fighter thing looking out into the light...honestly, I was really happy with what the Waka/Wako...?...did at the end. "Kind of." Yeah...that made me smile just a bit :)

Same shit happens in EVERY episode.
Same freaking animations happens when they go on their cybodies or whatever.
I don't know why I'm not dropping this anime....

Listening to Wako does make a person fall in love, only I didn't fall in love with Wako. I fell in love with Hayami Saori-san!! ^^


The Galactic Pretty Boy is so corny IMO. It is ridiculous... -__-

Mhmm.

Two swords, you're cheating bro.
Don't bother if you don't know how special effects were done without computers.

This whole formulaic

  1. Internal politics of shadowy organization
  2. Challenger enters Cybercasket
  3. Insert Song + Transformation Sequence
  4. Flashy shallow battle where the defender of justice prevails.

thing is getting old quickly. It's great the creators love Utena, it was pretty cool and all, but Utena was fucking REVOLUTIONARY; this desperate copycat is not.
In addition to those features, I rather enjoyed watching the particular dynamics of repetitive visual ticks during the student council meeting, the idea of swords being drawn from one's breast, the underlying motif of women as a type of property, the necessity of an "emblem" as a requisite for dueling (after engaging a complex mechanical process to gain access to the arena), and the fact that the head villain (or at least the person who has the best idea what is going on here) is in an almost constant state of recline. Also, the comic-relief intelligent pet sidekick (whose whole purpose at times seems to be to take abuse) was a refreshing touch. Much better than the first episode, where the hero defeated an arrogant, green-haired, mid-level thug in order to free the heroine from captivity, while upsetting the balance of their underground world in the process.


^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

I love Utena. I checked this out because I had heard about the similarities to Utena. However, I went in expecting an original show with similar themes - not a messy, chaotic pastiche. I might check out another episode or two to see if it eventually develops its own identity, but so far, I'm not hopeful.

Er... so far 3 episodes with the exact format. I hope something changes soon.

Although I love the art + animation when they're in that twilight zone.

5/5

Same old story, in a sense, when it comes to storytelling, but some small little step in the plot as there is in the characterization.
Pretty funny and enjoyable episode, with that last exchange of opinion between the loser and the leader of the bad guys, that intrigued me a lot.
Good designs, I like them, have a nice character design. The animations are pretty smooth and error-free.
The mecha with his sword was pretty cute, too bad too little harsh confrontation.

P.S. at times it was quite original narrative, such as the fact of exchanging effusions in each episode! LOL

Not bad, quite action filled episode however I do feel like this is getting quite repetitive, I do hope they bring various changes in the future of the story in how they actually dual!

Episode 3 was another lackluster one like the one prior. Since I know it's development however it's not a pain to sit through.

Am I the only one who doesnt feel anything for Wako? It's like she has no personality. I don't necessarily dislike or like her very much. She exists and I feel nothing of it. That's something that bothers me.
At least I don't hate her.

The Monochrome song played again, and I knew it would, but it didn't make me feel any less disappointed. They had something special using that song for the first transformation scene, but using it over and over again is really gonna get old fast especially since this series is 25 episodes...

I still love Takuto.

I get the story fine so far, I'd like a little more depth though.
