Interesting bunch of people on that were on that bus.
But, does this mean no more Sakana-chan singing? D:
And why the fuck did they have to stand there breathing out for like half an hour after the battle? >.>

Anyway, lulzy episode. Somehow, it doesn't feel serious at all.
And I really don't like the fact that they're practically fighting over Wako. She can just go and drown or something. She's a nuisance. She takes screen time from important characters like Sarina.

Is it time for my long-awaited return to the forums? щ(゚Д゚щ) Nope™, probably not.

I still love this show as much as I did when I started watching. The only thing getting old is Takuto's transformation scene.

I rather liked that Sugata didn't become some big baddy like I thought he would. His issue lasted for like 3 episodes and now the show seems to be moving forward to something new.

The breathing scene was long to make it dramatic...but it lasted a little TOO long. About half that time would have worked.

I personally liked this episode, but I didn't want the fish girl to leave. I am glad Sugata didn't turn into the bad guy, and looking forward to the next episode.
I am a sucker for romance!!!!

I like how people say that it's actually easy to understand if you use your brain, but they don't actually explain what actually happened nevertheless.

I guess this marks the end of the first arc with


Remember that we're only 8 episodes in out of 25...though the director/creator said we'd know "everything we need" after these 8 eps, but meh. They still have time to explain things.

About what happens in the next ep? I just knew where to look so to speak.

About their relationship, it would be quite obvious in the preview alone. Again, the hair is the giveaway.


Indeed, the series is still good, but it tapered off a bit. Regardless, I would still continue watching it while also developing an alternative plot to it through my own story involving another outsider as a protest of sorts; quite inexperienced making a "fanfic" however since most of my prior experience are fully "fiction", based on something I thought of and not out of something I'm a fan of.

So in the end Sugata wasn't being controlled by the pink haired girl, or was he? And if he wasn't, then why did het act that cold all of a sudden? And if he was, then why didn't he wake up when he took the cybody over? I don't get it anymore. XD

Poor Sakana-chan, she didn't even want to leave. Well, that was pretty much known information already, but still. Buwha, seems like love always wins, again. The trio is back... Well, at least Takuto and Sugata are. Is this just me or is this actually a shoujo/josei mecha series above everything else? I totally lol'ed at the breathing scene. I know it can take a long time to get your necessary breath, so it could have been necessary, but this was just awkward. It just showed that they really fought all-out.

One episode they were friend and suddenly the next episode they became enemy(wtf) and the next thing I saw it they became friend again. WTF was happening?

Oh yeah, I understand it now. Sugata was jealous of Wako over Takuto which was what explained me in this episode where the 2 of them going:

Takuto: Sugata... Sugata ...
Takuto: Let's do this, Sugata!
Sugata: Come on, Takuto!
*after some action*
They took a very long long breath while staring at each other. Finally now they understand their own feeling.

OMG, I didn't know I was watching this kind of anime.

The King's Pillar cannot be controlled by a weak first phase. Essentially his power was to much to control hence he took over the body. I would guess that the cold attitude is a side effect of gaining enough power to essentially rule the world... something to that extreme.

I have to say the fist fight was not bad. I am still in shock from Sakana leaving all of a sudden... So little explaination, but i would presume she will return in some way? Otherwise they seem like a plot-less scenes, be it very enjoyable ones.
(Good 7/10)

I just realized that, the man that has always been listening to the "Fish girl's" story is the current leader of Glittering Crux(before 6:00 mins when he left the fish girl). I'm so dumbfounded :D

I like the animation in this episode.
Also, I liked the breathing scene. It reminded me of the Evangelion
. I think it's the same kind of effect that they were trying to get, but Star Driver is a little too silly for that.

So...only that? Did Sugata return to normal or he's just going to stay like that? And the breathing scene was really long. Aww and no more Sakana-chan D: Why did she leave?

I don't have a slowpoke slow enough to reply.


Also, lol at people not understanding the story xD. Although it is indeed confusing. What I'm intrigued about is who's the man that talks to the "leader" of kiraboshi, and how is that leader special (since it seems like he has some interesting backstory).

Increasing disagreement between Takuto and Sugata in each other's behaviours -> Takuto confronts Sugata about him being a dick -> Sugata answers that he is no open book -> fist fight -> Scarlet kiss starts her plan from the previous episode -> Sugata overrides her control and takes over her cybody -> Takuto and Sugata duke it out like real men -> GALACTIC BROFIST IN ZERO TIME and arriving to some understanding.

Not that fucking hard.

Also Fish girl leaves since Head told her to GTFO after getting annoyed by her story, and Ivrogne is most likely the other maiden together with pink haired girl (If you don't understand the bus scene, you're pretty damn thick).

Lame scenario and bad direction. Thank God the music and animation are fine or it would really be one of the worst mecha shows in the past few years.

I'm really sorry, but this anime confuses me by a home run. (I think a recap episode is PROBABLY necessary to fully understand this series.)

Yea, that Scarlet Kiss girl was UNABLE to control Sugata by a mile, which is HIGHLY unexpected on my part. I was expecting that Sugata would beat Takuto in that Zero Time Battle, but no.

I think the Northern Maiden is hopefully making her insert song again someday.

Show so far: 7/10

The scene was just bizarre.

Just becuase 'Takuto' is mentioned within the main title of the show( Takuto of the radiance) he is undefeatable? Its ridiculous how he can never lose a battle. Was looking forward to a in this episode but sheesh....disappointed.

Still the same animation for Takuto's transformation? Its weird to see him smile every time he transforms. If Tauburn would be a girl it would be a complete fanservice (referring to the way its show after Takuto screms *Tauburn*) XD

Anyways, Sugata looked exceptionally hot this episode. His Lelouch voice ~HNNNGHHHHH~

The show just seems like a troll
A lot of commercials---> Security Police, Gintama, Space Battleship (looks highly interesting)

Is Ivrogne a shrine maiden?That *brilliant* bus scene made me think that it's true.

I'm really starting to like the way this show is handled.I don't really like the dynamic between Takuto and Sugata though.

According to the official website, his name is Ryousuke Katashiro and is friend with Head. He's also the chairman of Kiraboshi.
Well this episode showed quite a lot. The bus scene couldn't have been more obvious showing them together as the four maidens of the island. I'm also shocked that Sakana left but now I know her motive. When Head talked with Ryousuke and said ''they we're free... from the beginning'' i'm guessing that she didn't want to leave the island because she was afraid that she couldn't manage in the world so that's why she cried when Head told her to leave.

Well, that was the best episode animation and battle wise.

I knew bitch can't control Sugata completely. I guess that's it for Sakana(Fish)-chan and there's a new Kiraboshi member.

zero time always comes just when it's getting interesting and doesn't add much but graphics. also wtf was up with the standing there and panting for like 2 minutes at the end? more time spent on their love triangle than making sense of the actual plot.

the new girl joins their club and the enemies brigade at the same time. cool more people they get along with at school that are really enemies that they'll never explain.

Oh yeah, I understand it now. Sugata was jealous of Wako over Takuto which was what explained me in this episode where the 2 of them going:

OMG, I didn't know I was watching this kind of anime.
Yeah, pretty much. Based on the way this show has gone, I should have realized this whole thing with Sugata would be resolved in one episode rather than develop into something more interesting. It was the anime classic of boys fighting each other and coming to an understanding. Although, I kinda did enjoy the cinematics of the wind blowing while they were on the hill. Albeit a cliche, I still liked it.

This really isn't the last we'll see of Sakana, is it? She's probably going to come back, so I won't bother with farewells. I think my intepretations of her story were all wrong. It just never really made sense to me. Then again, this whole show seems like it gives you bits and pieces then leaves the viewer to fill in the blanks. And this is completely random, but I absolutely love that hat and dress Sakana was wearing. I love those outfits. ^_^

Edit: New GIRL joining the Brigade!? Really? Don't they have enough female members? Come on, people, we're seriously lacking cools guys in this show. :(
