That was a good episode. I never thought Kanako was that strong in boxing. I have to say, the kiss was pretty cute. Oh and the CM after the next episode preview was awesome. Ao no Exorcist!

Enjoyed this episode more than the recent.

Kinda sad they're just recycling Mizuno's song scenes.

Also, thought Takuto was gonna use Giga Drill Breaker for a second... artwork changed and everything but ended up using Pile Crusher :(

Also, nice kiss scene.

Funday.
I have to say, they have made Kanako into a interesting character. XD Must be noted for a ojou-sama i actually like.

The fight was short and, "omg wtf is happening this is shounen level for sure" as usual, but just the prospect of one of the leaders fighting was enjoyable.
(Excellent 9/10)

I think it's about time that Takuto started having trouble with these battles. That fight lasted what? 1 minute? 2 minutes? There's no tension at all to the fights because you just know he's going to crush whoever he's up against.

I'm not saying he needs to be defeated, he is the protagonist afterall, but make him work for it at least.

They explained Samekh and the sleeping thing in this episode

Kanako is my favorite Crux member and we hadn't really gotten a lot of focus about her lately so I'm glad this episode was about her.

I was not expecting the Pile (?) to turn into a rocket punch.

Takuto you used the pretty eyes pickup line on Marino and now Simone. The guy is creating a harem without realizing it. Anyway this episode was pretty good. I enjoyed the fight.

Cool episode, especially since it was a different type of fight this time with a new attack.

lol Funny episode. Not so happy that Kanako lost so quickly. As powerful as her punches are, they should've destroyed Tauburn. D:

But if anything, this episode is proof that the show's purpose is to raise the libido, as one person put it early on in the series. Resurrecting Cybodies with libido, lolwut. And at least we get a decent (for this show) explanation as to how Sugata might've regained consciousness.

meh the fighting is the worst part. The slice of life ridiculousness however continues to be top tier.

Also they're going to fix their robots by using their sex drive? I guess that means the RA, Kanako, and Dr. Green have unlimited power.

Agreed. The past couple of episodes have made me a fan of Kanako. She's got a bit more depth that first thought and she's fun. Still find the kissing through the glass with random guys off-putting. But I do find everyone's reaction (especially Takuto) when she openly flirts when Takuto in class to be highly entertaining.

Great episode! I really wish the transformation scene changed a little. But the quality of art during the fights really make up for it.

True. In the beginning the fights were longer, but now it feels like that they're just there for no reason at all. Mecha of the weak.
But there is one benifit of the shorter fights, and that is a better mix of school life and mecha. But yeah, it's still very bland.

Good episode. The battle was a little better than past weeks since he actually had a cool new move that wasn't super obvious or shown in the preview after the previous episode :P

The cyberbody regeneration concept sounds like it's coming along. I wonder what's going to happen since Manticore is suppose to kill the West Maiden and the West Maiden is her twin sister.

Kanako really is one of the characters that always makes this show fun to watch.. her seductive lines towards Takuto during class is always very funny to watch..

what the?! Libido to revive the broken cybodies.. umm, no comment..

wow, Simone talked a lot this episode looks like last episode really wasn't a waste.. and oh no, Takuto launched another pre-emptive strike on another unsuspecting bishoujo.. now I'm really starting to think that Takuto's 1st phase ability is to charm girls.. XD

lol at George getting pawned by Kanako in boxing.. and what's with Kanako's outfit it looks more like she going to do some gymnastics rather than boxing.. o_O

Wako's parents really forgot to teach her to "not speak while having a toothbrush in your mouth"..

Kanako's lion cybody is really awesome, first cybody design I really liked.. and I was expecting hers to be a croc lol..

so Takuto's "funnel" is called "pile".. nice to know that they have other functions besides being a complete rip-off.. and for a second there, I thought he was going to shout GIGA PILE BREAKER!!

KISS is WIN!

The fact that the North Maiden is alive, despite her being captured and her seal more than likely being broken, means that you don't need to kill a maiden. But the fact that they resort to kidnapping does mean that the maidens are not entirely safe, either.

Did Takuto really just say, "It's a cool~" and, "It's a Sundae~"?

WOW. Takuto is playing ALL the girls. What a player and he doesn't even know it.

As always, the fight sequence sucked. She's supposed to be one of the big 5 generals and she lost in 2 minutes...and it seems like the same thing is gonna happen next episode with the RA/pink haired girl general.

This episode was fun to watch. The libido concept left me speechless.
Wako should take her toothbrush off when she speaks. I was expecting a better fight since she's on another level, but it was ok. From what I saw it looks that Kanako and her duo are leaving since they are no longer in Kiraboshi.

Agree

I also agree. Preferably Mizuno.

For a second there, I actually thought Takuto might lose. But then I remembered, "Oh yeah, this is Star Driver, and Takuto never even comes close to losing. What am I thinking?"

Worst moment: Kanako kissing Takuto. She's more of a flirt than he is, so yeah.
Best moment: "It's a sundae!"

This show must hate me. They do two episode on the character I hate the most, Kanako, and then they're doing one on the pink haired girl next, who is my second most hated character. This show is more about Takuto flirting with every girl possible rather than the cybodies.

he just fought a boss....I was hoping she would of lasted longer than 1 minute....he beat her shit so fast I had to go back to check where it began cause I wasn't even paying attention.

the last part where she kissed him, pleased Takuto's ginga for sure

I really want a Tauburn figure.

Looking forward to the next episode. Looks like Benio knew Sugata when they were younger, so that means she's been on the island for some time, right?

Ao no Exorcist commercial at the end. Need to check out the manga at some point.
Ha-cha!

"It's a Sundae" LOL another new word Takuto-kun. Good stuff Good stuff

...and Yay! more Kanako just the way I like it. I never really care about the mecha fight anymore since the relationship build up between characters is more interesting and the one I look for when watching this.

As usual the fights themselves are the weakest part of the show, but still they're often the prettiest. I don't know what's more insane, Kanako beating
the dog sh*t out of someone in boxing (I looked just like Simone after that
fight); or Tauburn whipping out some new spinning drill bit power. It was a
very picturesque and entertaining episode, overall.

At this point in the story there are several nice stories being weaved in the background. The West Maidens' situation. The relationship between Sugata and Head. What's going on with the "True" Glittering Crux? Those douchebags have shown up, but haven't really done much as of yet. And let's not forget at all that Takuto's the biggest mystery of all.

same basic boring formula. they go to school, plot happens and when it gets interesting .... crappy villain of the week gets crushed in a dumb fight. the fights don't really add much. what's the point of showing that she's strong for her to still get crushed fast? can something different happen already?

Wow I'm slowpoke. I just realized that he doesn't just "learns" all these new techniques from thin air, but he actually learned of them when he apprivoised (as they explained in some of the last episodes).
Now things make more sense :P

Anyway, average Sunday Driver episode.

it would be so mch easier if they just admit no one can beat Takuto instead of keep screwing up faster and faster and they are showing way too mch of takuto and way to little of sugata and the next episode that pink haired girl is gonna flirt with takuto after she flirted with Sugata a few episodes ago? pfft

very funny episode. still the same exact structure as every other episode, but iv decided to just accept this anime for what it is. for some reason i noticed a few scenes where hands were really poorly drawn, which was annoying me, but i definitely couldnt do any better, so ill just ignore it

I was debating whether kill was the right word or not. Thanks though I forgot about what happened with the North Maiden in the end xP

Wako is pretty strong then. I mean if she just got her seal broken she could leave the island and live her life as a singer like she wanted to ever since she was little.

Enjoyed it but the fights are getting worse. These are just way too short, if they could just make the fights a minute or 2 longer, I could get more into this because the story is okay. Oh and:

1. Is it me or is takuto really smooth
2. Wako is adorable
3. Where is my mizuno?!
4. The kiss was done very well

since the RA is still a leader, I'm assuming kanako still is. I still want to know what kanako's 1st phase was since it was hinted at last episode.

so, to takuto, that was his first kiss, one of his milestones, right? i wonder how he'll take it when he realizes it.
