I'm not really surprised about Taubarn winning easily again.... Seriously, the mech fights are like a joke in this series. I'm hoping this aspect of the show changes up soon.

The rest of the episode, though, had some very interesting stuff going on.

Warning: Spoilers in the spoiler (common sense here =.=; )


Next week's episode looks like it'll be very interesting, with a focus on Marino, Mizuno, and Takuto.

NEWS FLASH!! we got some shocking developments in this episode!!

what the?! that's got to be the shortest fight, and I thought she would put up a better fight this time..

looks like next episode would be interesting, and might be the last part of Mizuno's arc..

the fight is too short on this episode but they bring up some nice details on Cybody Revival process and hinting some mystery of how other clans lost their marks

looking forward to next episode

This episode was interesting...and once again Takuto wins, I have no idea why I'm still surprised. I wish he would lose at least once, but w/e.

Also, the more I see this show the more I think Takuto makes a good couple with every girl so far except Wako. No offense to Wako x Takuto fans. We all know that more likely than not, that's the person he'll end up with, if he ends with somebody. Although I prefer Takuto x Mizuno myself.
I am a sucker for romance!!!!

I still love the show but I do hope they change it up at some point.

Seriously, almost every girl is in love with Takuto and/or Sugata, and it's a bit much. I'm actually afraid they'll just have no one choose and leave it open ended. My favorites are Takuto x Wako or Takuto x Mizuno.

It was a nice episode, and there are more possibilities of rematches now because the cybodies can be repaired. Though I suppose only those that have a really strong will can have it fixed.... Also, the ending sounded different, like it was only being sung by one person, when there should be a group of girls singing. o-o Maybe it's just me. >.>

Episode 13. No new OP or ED...? :(

This episode actually wasn't as bad as I thought it was going to be. So once Takuto sees a move once he'll never fall for it again. I wonder if that's his first phase.

First a toothbrush and now a corn on the cob. Wako, you need to remember to leave these things at home, girl! XD

"It's a challenge!" That's just about the only re-used thing in this show that doesn't bother me.

Next episode looks like it'll be all right. Seriously though, half way through the show and we've gotten nowhere.

I feel like they're trying to take things in a story way rather than the mech fights. I swear they keep getting shorter and shorter and non-epic. But on the other hand, they've been trying to develop more of a story behind every single character they introduce to fight Takuto... eh, idk. Just give me some more epic battles instead plz

By the way, thoroughly disappointed by the fact there was absolutely no singing in this episode.

For a character who has come across as the loser-villain in the series (along with her cronies), she certainly did provide her fair share of entertainment. I had no idea she was a sword fighting beast, was so close an acquaintance to Sugata or a disgraced member of a clan. It was all nice to learn.

The fight itself was a flash of light, but they did duel 3 times in all actually. I had to laugh a little when she commented that she would've won if she hadn't challenged him in the real world first. While clashing with Takuto may have been somewhat a surprise, she could've turned it down knowing that he could be her opponent later. I don't think it was an accident.

Then again, maybe she is just a scatterbrain who didn't think at all during that moment.

"It's a challenge" lol those hilarious Engrish from Takuto is what I've always been waiting for.

I'm not even expecting something from the mech fights since pretty much it's much of the same over again so rather it's much more interesting to tune in for the story and those smexy flirty villains.

methinks that we'll get a TakutoxSugata BL ending here since Takuto doesn't seem to show any interest in the girls

still the same rinse wash repeat formula since ep1 so starting to get bored at the mecha fights for this series....they might as well take it out and just focus more on the romcom harem side of things

Naked Takuto!! *nosebleed*
This was the shortest zero time fight ever!!!
And I now understand what Scarlet Kiss's issue is. She's upset because she was told that she was not good enough for Sugata because of the loss of the mark. Now that she's gotten the mark back, will she aggressively pursue Sugata, or totally focus on Takato?

Well at least they can repair and bring people back. I have to say the cast is rather large at the moment; they had been introducing a character every episode until recently.

I enjoyed it but yeah, I could see how repetitive it is and predictable. I guess that is why it is a shounen. Just glad that i am hyped up enough for this show that i don't care.
(Good 7/10)

So, suddenly something that might look like an underlying plot appears.
And it's probably forgotten by the next episode.

As for everything else in this episode, lolregeneration just to have it destroyed.
And there was an overbearing lack of Sarina and Sakana-chan in this episode.

As usual, the first part is good with backstory and some important things in this episode too. So there's more than one family with marks and for some reason only 1/4 remain. They can repair cybodies now although it seems like it's different for each pilot since Scarlet Kiss relies on...sex drive?

Also as usual, the mech fight sucked. Lasted 2 minutes...wow...

I don't think Scarlet Kiss has her mark back@whoever mentioned this.

I think Takuto might actually lose episode 14's fight, it looked pretty ominous, but they both have the "Everything will be alright spell" at their disposal, so who knows? And if Takuto loses, will he die/be severely injured? Because it seems like you get shot up into the air and a wicked explosion happens when you lose.

And I am almost positive that Sugata will team up with the purple haired leader dude and have his Cybody repaired.

I've actually been enjoying this series more and more recently despite the lopsided and minute-long mech battles. It's nice to see the "villains" get developed, which makes the interactions that much more intriguing and fun to follow. The background on the marks and clans were interesting. The lack of Mizuno in this episode was disappointing though.

Well, if we can't have a plot, at least tell us more about these clans. Open questions like "What about the other clans?" are pretty much the only thing that keeps me watching this. As for the rest... some ecchi, a new member of Takuto's harem and Takuto totally owning a freaking master of kendo in a matter of seconds, classic. I don't know why I still expect some nice twist or a serious plot.

By the way, I'm not a kendo expert, but is it really a good idea to try the SAME pattern of movement THREE times at the SAME person? Good kendo master, Star Driver.

Wait, what's this about waiting two weeks for the next episode? D:

Good episode! I'm liking these character episodes, the last few have been pretty good. Unfortunately the minute long Cybody fights are just lame and take away from what they've built up throughout the episode. Come on Benio, why would you use the same move THREE TIMES? That's just stupid >_<
Anyway they can fix the Cybodies now ... and it looks like they've reinstated Kanako? Cool ...
So what's this "mark" thing? Did she get it back or something?
Was also gonna say it's nice that Benio likes Sugata and not Takuto ... but now I'm not so sure anymore ... :P

The episode as such wasn't bad, although I'd really appropriate some sort of development of the fights :/ At the moment they seem to be silly fillers that need to be in every single episode, and really nothing changes, same old stuff every time. When I started the series I was hoping for something more than that really. Developing plot a bit farther is not that hard, and skipping one fight won't harm Takuto xD'

As for the harem issue, it's painfully similar to Clannad. Geez, I wonder when they'll run out of new girls that can fall in love with him :/ Hahaha, he can always run away with Sugata, just for shit and giggles :D Because knowing that kind of anime, nothing is going to happen and no couples will be created.

I read somewhere that phase four is deeper connection with the cyberbody so if Takuto is to lose the next fight, he might miraculously reach phase four.
Personally I'm all for Takuto x Marino and them being together taking care of Mizuno. Or at least Takuto x Mizuno. Sugata x Wako is enough for no Wako x Takuto...And no to Wako x Sugata x Takuto :X That's just wrong.

And the sad thing is that the mecha aspect isn't even good enough to be considered extra entertainment. Is like a disadvantage for the show because it's so boring and repetitive..

Also i noticed that basically the bad guys are what makes the show interesting. Their personalities is what we mostly explore in every episode.

This is so true. The villains are the only reason I am not dropping this yet. The animation is neat(except the mechs, which are not great but forgivable) and the VAs are doing a fine job but the story and its progression suck supremely. I feel like I am watching someone playing a lame rpg and grinding with weak enemies over and over again. Eureka and Xam'd were much better in pretty much every aspect.

You know for once I am totally buying it being a quick fight, apparently Scarlet Kiss knows only one move and Takuto learned it fighting her once. In fact if this holds true for all the fights it almost explains the quick nature of them, he is a quick learner and can think on his feet. It makes for repetitive fights, but at least now we know why.

Rest of the episode once again was good.
