The fight scene is starting to get (or has been) tedious for me. Maybe it's because of the same transformation scenes and it's always been the same mecha fighting against the enemy, just like the mecha animes from 80s...

i agree....I like the show but the reusing the same transformation scene is kinda of annoying. I also hope their is some more struggle for are hero, like an enemy he cant defeat in one episode or rather the last portion of an episode. That's what I am waiting for is a op enemy

however i did enjoy the new insert song as much as i did the last one, does make it a bit more exciting even if the outcome is the same.

New song was cool, but I must agree with a lot of the people here in that the fighting is getting kind of repetitive.

On another thought, I like Mizuno more than Wako. She's just so sweet :)

I agree, I like Monochrome a lot more. I also like the Marino more than Mizuno. Maybe I'm not a Mizuno fan...

Anybody else getting tired of Sugata going into King's Pillar pose and Wako stopping him? We all know that he ain't gonna do it.

Don't worry, the enemy is getting 3rd phase soon so the fights will change, by how much i don't know

The fight scenes in Revolutionary Girl Utena had far longer reused animation than Star Driver. Considering that I was able to deal with it then, I don't mind it here so much.

Btw, as a Houston Astros fan, I just realized Takuto has the same pitching mechanic as Roy Oswalt. I'm not sure how many MLB fans are out there in this forum though.

ok now it's official, I now also like Mizuno better than Wako.. her new song is nice but I'm still under Sakana-chan's spell..

so Keito really is more involved in the story that I initially expected, now she's revealed to be childhood friends with Sugata and Wako too..

oh Takuto you FABULOUS ladies' man..

and Sugata stop acting cool with your 'King's Pillar' you'll get your chance so just chill man..

Damn, about Marino.. why did I just notice this now..

The baseball game was actually entertaining if you except the tries by Igarashi at being funny. He must be the only director in the world to systematycally screw up all the comedy situations in his shows (e.g Soul Shitter, Oura High School Club...). Apart from that, the robot part of the show is still ridiculously bad, as are most characters.

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

Mizuno's singing was nice, I like her. The fights have been kind of tedious and repetitive for pretty much the entire anime so far, except for episode eight with the fight between Takuto and Sugata. The "funnels" were cool though. Overall it was a fun episode.

new song is good, but not as much of a battle BGM as monochrome was. It was more relaxing than energy rising.

I liked certain parts, but not the majority. I saw Takuto using that spell the moment her sister said he won't use it. Jinx! The battle scenes are pretty bad actually even if this is bones, but the enjoyment comes from mostly outside zero time.

I still don't understand what third phase is. And when will we see Takuto's first phase?
(Good 7/10)
They put the episode title at the end, but we saw it in the preview -.-

New song is a bit not so good as previous but I like it. And new fightings would be in 3rd arc after evil guys reach second phase.

Huh. They really do look and work like funnels. I actually love the new song just as much as Monochrome. I thought it would be boring at first until the instrumentals kicked in.

He only did it in the last episode and this one. I think he'll stop after now since we know it won't work anyway (at least I hope it does)

Third phase is when you can pilot a Cybody without a Cybercasket like Takuto and Sugata can.

Actually, I thought that part was well done because they were talking about how they like the same things and then *bam* title shows up. We know Takuto conflict can appear at some point. I also forgot what the episode was called anyway :P

Definitely. I hope he gets to fight soon, because Takuto is seriously getting boring after doing basically the same thing after 10 episodes.

I don't know the name of the new song, and I don't think there's been a full version of Monochrome released yet. This is the cleanest version I've been able to find on YT (plus there's an MP3 link in description). http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EeVMmMezN-M

Edit: If you don't care if it's clean or not, here's a full version (I think): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BHuq-gPTMGQ

It was actually a pretty good episode. I enjoyed the baseball part quite a bit. Is that what a sports anime might be like? I've never seen one, so maybe I'll have to go look one up.

Marino and Mizuno are cute. Love triangle, or love square if you count that orange haired guy. Loved Mizuno's song, too. A nice replacement for Monochrome, if that's what it is to become. Really guys, Monochrome is a great song, but I think everyone's over-rated it a bit.

Next episode doesn't look like it'll be much to look forward to. :(

New song was nice and I still love this show, but they really need to spice up the formula up a bit. I'd really like to see a Glittering Crux focused episode, like what certain members do when they're not prancing around in silly outfits while planning to take over the world.

Did anyone else see a bit of Keito x Sugata?
Ha-cha!

That Baseball part was so amusing. I was grinning and all in that part and also when Takuto is having a conversation on Marino on the first base or something. Yay! for new insert song!

Is it me or is the new song annoying? It follows only two major different "set" of pitches and is repeated about 5 times... This is something that will eventually, if it doesn't change, drive me up the proverbial tree.

/rant

Good episode anyways... I agree that the fight scenes are getting repetitive... :|

This ep was an "eh" one.

The baseball game was slightly amusing, but it made me worry at the beginning I was about to watch a filler that meant nothing. Was a little predictable but I liked how the game ended.
Only thing that annoyed me bout this episode was the really short fight. I mean the enemy swung his weapon ONCE and retreated back to use the mystical red balls. Takuto conquers them, and then slash and done. eh...

Good first half, nice new song, turrible fight. 3/5

Nothing beats "Monochrome", but I'm glad we have a song to go along with the transformation ceremony. I don't really like baseball episodes, but this one gave me a good laugh. I'm anxious to see if this takes a dark turn with the sisters. I'm wondering if Manticore will betray the West Maiden, or if she'll just be ripped away by those new bishies.

10 episode in and we got the same formulaic approach. Will they try to change the formula at least?

And no, the Pillar pose is getting really lame.
bla bla bla
The endless debate between fans and haters. At one point, after spending a lot of time on MAL, you just realize it's totally pointless.

The formula is the point to this show.

If you watched Utena you'd understand it.

The baseball match was entertaining to watch.. new song was good, but the first one, Monochrome, is still better I think.. and the fight scenes are not good to watch anymore, it's always the same thing, and Sugata trying to use the King's Pillar then Wako trying to stop him again and again.. hope they improve next episode..

I like both the twins.. and I liked their dialogue in the last scene where Mizuno says "After all we always like the same things." even the same man xD.

Why does everybody keep saying "he uses the King's pillar over and over again" even though he's only done it in this and the last episode?

He was hiding a Dragoon flying bits system!

Well, it's kind of obvious Marino likes Takuto now since Mizuno said they both like the same things.

We need better fights. This is getting old and repetitive.

Cool new background music. Funny baseball game.

But the series needs a little more variety: OP->Something 1->Something 2->Fight->Something 3.

I agree with the "We always like the same things" lol. Marino noticed it, although it's hard to tell if Mizuno knew the Guys aspect or not. xD
