Why am I not suprised of the development between Wako and Takuto?

Its an average episode for me as well ( Wow for the record there was no real fight in this episode)

Well, that's one way to "break the MOTW formula" people keep harping about.

Yaoi moment was lulz.

I was wondering why there was a random totem pole in the OP song. Now it's starting to makes sense.

Not too much mech fight stuff this episode, which surprised me. Wako x Takuto development isn't much of a surprise, but the yaoi moment got some laughs out of me. I really like how well they developed the relationship between Wako and Takuto, as well as found interesting the background info about the characters' pasts.

The episode explains a bit more about the plot and stuff, which actually is starting to make a lot more sense. I wonder who the new girl in the episode preview is.

Screenshots galore :P

It was an OK episode, plot development, and not mecha fight (only trasnformation).

Oh gawd! the yaoi! It burns... ugh.. What has been seen, cannot be unseen.

Bout time we see a plot development, even just a little.

Okay, now there seems to be some drive in Takuto. He's not just going through the motions anymore evident from what he says at the end of this one.

This episode was not that interesting. I still don't get how their enemies can be in the same school as them, and they know who the mains are but the mains don't.

Also, the order so far doesn't seem to be that "evil".

What's with the complaints? Wako and Takuto finally got development-even more for their characters than their relationship. The quiet moments were surprisingly casual and mature for the style of this series, and it worked to make the two stand out. And Takuto has a motive now.
Even if Sakana-chan didn't sing, her dramatics added to the Squid Emperor story were very fun to watch.

Eager to see how the other major characters will fit into the drama.

Give it up Wako, you can't outsing character voiced by Tomatsu Haruka. Not with this voice. And what the fuck is with those sick fantasies?! Now I need some brain bleach. And melting tiger in kids picture book? Erm...yeah. Definitely too much Wako. She's the last likable character in this show.

The fox cleaning and scratching itself on the dining table was sort of gross.

Can't say I like, or am even too interested in Wako's character. This was a nice episode though. Peaceful.

It was good. Although I get the feeling this would've been a LOT better if it where 13~ ep's long. They seem to be stretching the plot a bit.

i'm thinking that once this is all over and done, this show will either be a total flop or it will turn out to be amazing. :P
the only thing i don't get is the stars leader and the northern maiden getting along so well..?

Hahahaha, Ivrogne, what kind of name is that ? It means "drunkard" and is very pejorative in French actually.

Pretty average episode, always functionning on the same model and still without a main plot at the moment. Igarashi doesn't know how to develop his characters and the relationships between them (we saw that in Soul Eater already) and the direction is all over the place but I guess it's pretty normal for such a kind of super robot anime. However, the production values are still top notch, so nothing new there.

In every age, in every place, the deeds of men remain the same.

oh god mamo can't do homolust for shit. homolust aside, this episode made me realize that KIRA☆BO☆SHI gang is the only thing that's keeping me entertained. takuto/wako = endless yawns.

I liked the episode, there was plot development and the characters got fleshed out.

I'm surpised most people didn't like it since many were complaining the insert song and battles were getting old.

Actually i am because there doesn't really seem like any other possible answer. The only possible challenge could be the guy who tells Takuto to ignore that they are engaged which isn't much of one.

I thought this episode was okay. I expected myself to be more excited about their development but something was just missing. (Fight scene maybe?)
The important part is that Takuto has resolved to kick ass, and kick it well. Hopefully it gets harder for Takuto:

Yeah it's weird.

Like they got rid of both of those things, dropped the "formula" and focused on development and plot answers and the response here is IT'S TOO BORING!

Though there definitely wasn't enough Tauburn this week. Seems to definitely be getting him back next week

What about Sakana? Pretty much any girl with enough screen time works better than Wako.

Thought it was a pretty decent episode. The development was expected, necessary and was executed well enough. While Wako might be a bit bland, I don't find her annoying. Looking forward to the new character next time.

Did like the episode, even though nothing really happened in it. There was some nice charcter development though.
Just needs more Sakana - because i'm curious about her, and Sarina too - because i just like her.

Development was here but yet no USUAL insert song. Glad to at least see something for a change.

Wako isn't annoying but she's beginning to go bland.

Good episode, not much to say except that stupid Yaoi moment.

Wako is boring.

Decent episode. I enjoyed them switching things up a bit this week and actually teaching us a little bit more of how this world works. Takuto seems to have a little more drive now. I still want the characters to start getting fleshed out a bit more, and I was disappointed a didn't get to hear that song that I loved so much this week.

I like the development, but I also miss the weekly hijinks that this episode lacked (beside the homolust *o*). And if Head didn't get involved, Ivrogne's plan would've remained a success, in a sense.

Maybe because Kiraboshi needs the main characters ALIVE? It's clearly implied in how they operate.

As for "evil", they're only operating for militaristic, political, and economical purposes, not any apparent megalomania. So they're just normal people with typical, ambiguous morality.

Maybe her chemistry set has something to do with it. lol

Good character development between Wako & Takuto in this episode & lol at Wako inner fantasy XD Takuto's now got a clear goal in mind that is destroying all the existing Cybodies so that Wako can be free to leave the island. No battle in this episode but we can see another Cybody that have special ability.

Okay. People want explanations and when they do get it they go "WHERE IS MY UTA WO SAKANA-CHAN" and "NO TAUBARN!!"

Anyways, the episode gets a 4/5 for me. nice development between wako and takuto. I for one will be rooting for a wakoxtakuto ending.

i do wonder why sugata is even a main character, the first 4 episodes make him look like just another secondary character, no?

I feel like all the pieces are there, the premise/setting is there, the characters are there. But the EXECUTION of the plot and characters, are not. This episode was supposed to be about the romance between wako and takuto, but they failed to properly develop wako, and the main protagonist.

What do we know about the main protagonist? He dual wields, he has a laser cannon, he has a scar, hes probably a virgin and he loves his grandpa,etc. And wako? She's in a bubble half the time.

So when they're stuck in a rainy alternate universe, what is the perfect rainy day topic? "Oh yeah, I cant leave the island, ever, so I have to give up my dreams of being a singer. I cried that night, but after i ate some late night snack, I cheered up a lot. Just like how Takuto kun cheers me up..." (did she just compare the male lead to rice?) Takuton kun's reply, "Stop it, you're praising me too much".

I think the staff should just stick to mecha pornz.

oh,you want some extensive cheesy lines at episode 4,i mean how long is this,its 25 episodes dude,.you have a two persons talking who haven't known each other yet for too long and you want some deep conversation,.it's a first step development,.getting to know each other first,..geez

anyway,i think it's the best episode for me the second is episode 3,.the whole episode is very well done and still the animation is superb and do not drop in quality,.definitely worth my perfect score of 10,.and also i'm a big fan of BONES,.that's a plus factor,.all their originals are awesome! ^^,

The yaoi pic... it burns!!! Get it out of my head!!

Pretty decent episode. Thought we were gonna break out of the formula a bit later but I was wrong. It's a nice development between the two, though I wonder about LelouchSugata's role in the story. Guess we won't find out yet next episode as we get a new character in. It's a slow buildup but I like it.

and I think its cute that both Mamoru Miyano and Maaya Sakamoto are in it :]
