It was good since it actually focused on one thing instead of ten minutes of school-life and then ten minutes of FABOULUS MECHA. But still, I feel that the plot isn't developed enough. I still have hope that we will be suprised later and think "wow, so that's how it is".

On another note, fishgirl is my favorite. I love her stories.
I have my own anime blog. It's called Anime Viking. Hope you'll you read it!

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! ^^,


If you are a fan of Bones, please rewatch JUST the first two episodes of darker than black. Same amount of characters, same complicated plot being dumped onto the viewers. Just observe Hei/Li's expressions ALONE, his facial expressions develops more characterization than almost all the animes this season.

This anime is just not done well. Is it unenjoyable? no, that's up to personal opinion. When a show is hyped up, and then for some reason it's not as popular as people thought...it's NOT because of too many haters, or not enough moe. I've never seen a show that gets popular for NO reason.

If the writers/directors cant make a good story based on plot, then they will have to rely on other things, like special effects, moe, etc.

Slower paced episode, but we are only at 4 out of 25. There are still a ton of questions that have yet to be answered, but I'm really in no rush since I'm having fun. Yaoi scene was pretty hilarious.

Was that an ad for a Kuroshitsuji musical at the end? Da eff?
Ha-cha!

OH GOD, THE YAOI! That was very unexpected...I thought she was going to pair herself up with Takuto, but instead...we got ourselves a yaoi fangirl.

Damn, I could feel the awkwardness between the two.

Well, it seemed like they put in the whole FABULOUS Tauburn scene just for the hell of it since he didn't do actually do anything.

I wish I knew why the North Maiden keeps talking about Squid-eaters, squid emperors, and fish.

A change in pace? Well, change is good... like pennies. Pennies are good. Loonies and Toonies would be better, though. With a bit more substance to flesh out WakoxTakuto/Wakuto, and a fabulous fight scene to top it off (Mecha anime needs moar Mecha), a good deal less butt would have been hurt, resulting in less butthurt bored viewers.

Or maybe, just possibly, with a fair sliver of doubt, the slow pacing could have been masking subtle symbolisms throughout the episode! All of which were plotted and planted by Igarashi and Enokido to be referenced in future episodes! Then we the viewers would be suddenly flooded with carefully calculated plot points converging to a giant "Huh?" like the final episode of DTB: Ryuusei no Gemini!! Forcing our watching of a second season and OVAs to fill in plot gaps!!! Yet to end on a cliffhanger to leave the option of a third season open!!!! Leading to the sale of DVD box sets with fixes to the TV edition... Simple Disk Types... Discount Editions... American Editions... American Discount Editions... Blu-Rays with unaired episodes... Tengen Toppa... Saishuu Heiki...
All according to keikaku.

Eh, I still can't post? >.> Oh now.
Anyway, fabulous episode was less fabulous than usual, and it needs more whatever her name. (The... president of the drama club, was it? Sarina, maybe? Anyway, gief moar.)

Also, Sakana-chan was being pretty loud today.

I hope I'm not just stupid, but I am still slightly confused as to what is going on? I have a general idea but I'm still a bit lost. Perhaps I should re-watch the first few episodes.

Its still good though!

I don't think anyone understands what the hell is going on in this series...
But if anyone does, feel free to explain

Well, maybe something will actually happen in the next episode now that Takuto has decided to take out all the cybodies. At least I hope it'll stop this "monster of the week" formula because it's getting really boring.

Meh, this episode just didn't do it for me. Wasn't very interesting, too much Wako. At least it wasn't the generic robot fight where Takuto owned
Hope next episode is better :S

so basically at the end when he says hes going to defeat all of the cyberbodies this because he wants WAko to be able to leave the island??

well he probably was gonna do that anyway, but now he has a legit reason to do it.
fish girl is really interesting, its like she settled down in her prison now. thats kinda sad in a way...

Aside from that Wako's rather dull though. :s

4/5

A little less cryptic episode would have been more digestible, as I was bored.
The narrative formula changes and the plot for more depth to the characters, starting with Wako and Tiger, not forgetting to show us also the peculiarities of the enemy.
Deserving the two aspects.
Drawings not bad, animations on the same level.
Opening and ending cute.

BORING.

The progression of this show is so slow, I feel like I should be on episode 20 already.
I still very much like what I'm watching, but all the characters are so BORING.
Wako's song wasn't anything special like the other maiden's and she's not a very interesting love interest for someone like Takuto.

The more I complain, the more I'll dislike this show so I'll just stop there.

I'm glad I got to hear Takuto say "with a pinch!" again. I love that.
