I'm surprised no one's mentioned their surprise at the "woman" who Head visits actually being a man. It's typical of anime, but I for one still fell for it.


First thing I noticed x)
I've forgotten it in my post.

Wow, there's ACTUAL plot movement now after 19 episodes. I knew this would result in a rushed ending. If Bones made this segment of the show become developed/known a lot more earlier, it would have been much better. Not saying that Star Driver was entirely bad, but almost the entire half of the show was just the same thing happening over and over. One thing I still don't get though, was Head able to stay young because of him getting the marks transferring over to him or was it because "his heart is trapped in zero time" according to that one other guy who looked like Ayato's dad from Rahxephon?

I thought the whole "heart trapped in Zero Time" thing was an analogy for the lengths to which Head's obsessions had grown as opposed to part of him literally being stuck there.

Anyways, this was an interesting episode that revealed quite a bit (finally). Pretty obvious parallels between Head/Ryousuke/Sora and Takuto/Sugata/Wako, with hints at Takuto's jealousy potentially making him make the same choices as Head (though I'm like 100% sure he won't, complete with a "I'm nothing like you" sort of speech). Also, if I'm not mistaken Sora's bed/couch thing was the same as the one Sakana had in cage. Brother's got a bit of complex going on, amirite?

Psycho Lesbians continue to be psycho, and it looks as though that will only increase with the next episode. I still think they'll end up as the "real" villains. From the preview, I guess they're trying to force the fourth-phase integration of driver and Cybody, which will have the result of making Madoka some sort of giant mecha-musume type thing. Ah well, this show was pretty WTF to begin with.
Ha-cha!

Yeah, the trapped heart was an analogy, although if the effect is still the same it doesn't matter. Other people had been saying he was the dad, but to see it for myself is great. I loved this episode because they did two new ideas ontop of the back story:

3 people in zero time
Hitting Takuto before going into zero time
Betraying the head i guess counts too?

Arguably the best episode. Note: Arguably =P

Looks like Ryousuke will probably start thinking Wako is the child of Sora now after seeing the pocket watch. Maybe he'll protect her?

Nigatsu said:
But after this episode I don't understand one thing. Before I though that maybe 3 cybodies can't be in Zero Time at the same time, but in this episode there were 3 of them. Why the hell the Glittering Crux just didin't go like 2vs1 or 3vs1 against Takuto, it's to stupid if it's just because of "who wins will be the leader" especially now when Vanishing Age took over...

Well early on they were using caskets as the people fighting didn't have real marks. There was only one casket from my knowledge so only one allowed to fight. Now I'm not sure why either >_>. Because the head says so? We all know he's obsessed.

I'm with Camel Star or whatever his name is. he is surrounded by idiots. if they could have more than 1 attack Tauburn at a time why didn't they? instead the idiot lesbo got her cybody regenerated and attacks her ally? he actually seemed competent weakening Takuto then starting zero time. why does Keito help Takuto while they are still trying to beat him? I mean sucking poison out of his league .... uh shouldn't that piss off the other Glittering Crux?
If I was a Star Driver girl, I'd take any chance to rip open the Ginga Bishounen's pants and press my lips upon his agile legs.

LOL.

Oh man, Ryousuke looks like he's a fucking badass villain. His past was pretty sad though...

Uh...Head got his mark from having a gay lover? The EFF?!??!? Yaoi?!?

That fight was very anticlimatic. Seriously? What the hell did she do that for?

So from this episode we find out: Takuto is Sora's and Tokio/Head's son, Takuto inherited the mark from his grandpa who is Tokio's father, who didn't give it to Tokio, Tokio/Head apparently doesn't age, and Tokio/Head might have gotten his mark from Ryousuke.

This week's episode was definitely better than the past few weeks. Learned a helluva lot.

What, no Ginga Bishounen pose from Camel Star?

And finally some answers along with a great fight.
Still, we're near the end of the show and it's hard to guess what will happen next.
It's still fabulous though so who cares.

Curse you Tokio. I really hate NTR. And I supposed the reason Takuto is jealous of seeing Wako get kissed by her rightful fiance, Sugata, is because he inherited that NTR-ing habit from his father.

There's fish girl in the preview. I wonder if we'll get to hear her sing monochrome again.

Well it's still isn't really known did he really kissed her or did he say something to wake her up. Because she suddenly woke up after that, somehow I don't see how would she wake up just after a kiss on a cheek.
Well probably since I don't like Wako, I hope he didn't kiss her :D

Oooh NTR eh? I have a huge dislike for it but I guess it's not that bad considering if it didn't happen there would be no Tsunashi Takuto.

Wako is nice but common now Takuto, there are lots of better fishes in that island who is after your nuts. Why Wako is beyond me.

Agreed. "Love thy enemy" Takuto, don't forget that. All of them (the girls obviously, except Simone I guess) orgasm just looking at you! LOL

So we have black-hair guy, sora and tokio. Black-hair and sora are engaged, sora likes black-hair but is too afraid to take the leap, and doesn't think black-hair actually likes her. They meet tokio, Tokio takes sora and has sex with her, and sora forgets about black-hair. Tokio then proceeds to have sex with a dude so he can get this mark. Dude falls into a deep sleep therefore no mark for him. Black-hair gives tokio his mark to forget the sex scene between sora and black-hair. Therefore tokio gets a mark. sora figures out that black-hair liked her but its too late shes pregnant, and leaves the island with black-hairs pocket watch. Her kid is takuto and he receives the mark instead of tokio, even though he has one now. Pocket watch is given to takuto from her mother which he gives to wako. Even though takuto likes wako even if wako choosese sugata takuto won't rip his eyes out because hes has like 50 chicks on hand. So right now tokio is too scared to undergo regeneratioon so hes waiting for the dude he had sex with to wake up to transfer his mark. But in the end takuto will triumph over all since he has the heart of his dead friend who says when what you want to do is what you should do you can hear the voice of the world, making him invincible. I fully understand this story. Magnificent. 100 stars out of 100.

Now I hate Tokio / Reiji even more. = A =;; He can't be Takuto's father, that's just...ewww ;__; My face stayed like this > O_O for 20 minutes after watching it ._.
Frosti said:
I wouldn't be surprised if Takuto is in fact Ryousuke's son especially since Ryousuke had the watch and Takuto looks more like Ryousuke when he was young and he even got some of the things Ryousuke did, like how he keeps his hand on his waist.

I hope ^ this will happen. AMEN. >_>; Sugata should be with Wako ; A ;
By the way, is it just me or don't you find it gay when Takuto transforms? XD

It's a chance!!!

OK! This was an awesome episode and even the battle was great! My take on this whole mess:
It appears that not only is Reijii's heart stuck in zero time, but his body/soul as well. This is why he has not even aged. Reijii's mind is so messed up, that I'm doubtful that he even knew Sora was pregnant. I strongly suspect that Sora left the island while she was in the early stages of her pregnancy.

As for Takuto's watch:
That watch originally belonged to the guy with the eye-patch. I believe he gave that watch to Sora as proof that he did indeed care about her. Sora kept that watch and then gave it to Takuto.

This is an interesting turn of events! I can't wait for the next episode. Also, I'm still waiting to find out what "maiden rituals" are being performed on Sugata every night.

Although it was hinted before that Head is Takuto's father, I was really doubting since

that Ryousuke was part of Sora's past. BTW, she's beautiful. :)

And the blue haired girl is back!!

Also, the Ao no Exorcist seems awesome.

And LOL at the zebra ballerina. XD

Pretty much spot on, except Ryousuke (Black-hair) had a geass and in 1st phase could see Head and Sora have sex, so he ripped out his eye. Takuto doesn't have a geass, so his eyes are safe.

I understand Head doesn't age because his heart/soul/we is caught in zero time.
But why doesn't Shingo - the kid in a coma - age?

I don't see why people are confused and need clarification. Head is Takuto's father, and he doesn't age for a symbolic reason. That simple.

hmmmm, I think I get it. I wanted to think that Head was Takuto's dad, but that didn't initially make sense when they look the same age. There are still a lot of questions, but this answer did a damn good job of moving things forward.

One of only a few things was how the whole eye incident was handled. Ryosuke was just so cavalier about ripping out his eye. We didn't even get a good painful scene of him right after or anything. I thought that would have been addition, since the trio from the past seemed so damned unnaturally reserved.

Oh yeah, had to watch this twice because I just had a little trouble digesting that Takuto's dad was an ageless, bisexual male version of Utena. It's just kinda wild.

lol a lot of this question i see around this thread, my guess goes like this...

something went wrong on the mark transfer between Head and Shingo (the gay or coma guy) and that trapped part of their soul in Zero Time and we know that Zero Time means time is stopped at the real world so aging stop for them in the real world too

I bet Head and Shingo not aging has something to do with Shingo's first phase. Also, I'm really missing the maiden insert songs at the beginning of each battle. Those songs really set the mood.

It was a VERY frustrating love triangle; I wasn't exactly upset, but it was definitely twistedddd... sounds like Takuto loves his grandpa & had a good childhood though, so not all sadness came out of it, but still...

Head is Takuto's father WAT O_O
Anyways, his past is ... interesting? A bit confusing though. Feel bad for his friend who clawed out his own eye X_X Sora was kind of useless, I mean mistakenly thinking he didn't care but whatever lol. So who's that guy who's asleep? Doesn't Head already have his friend's mark? Why does he need another one? O_O
I liked him better without knowing this lol >_<
Anyway, so another useless battle. Tau Missle is horribly embarrassing to watch. Which reminds me, if that girl can jump out of the balls so easily, why do people never come out of them? Can you not control them? You can't break them or push people out of them? I swear I've seen them jostle around and not be affected a bit ...

Damn, Ryousuke was pretty hot when he was younger.

Also, is it weird that I found the Ryousuke/Sora/Head triangle more interesting than the current trio? I seriously wouldn't mind if SD would have been about them instead.

Great episode though.


Not the only one. I actually don't think the current triangle is necessary at all. Wako should of just ended up with Sugata or alone, and Takuto with someone other than her, preferably mizuno(my preferance), but really anybody but Wako. I really can't bring myself to like Wako. Anyways, the episode was good, and the info was a lot, so I'm looking forward to more. Yay! I get to see Sakana again, now if they can show Mizuno again, it would be complete.
I am a sucker for romance!!!!

Shocked and surprised again at scene when Sugata kissed Wako while Takuto is watching! And so touching episode first of all I hate triangle love. I'm f*cking shiit hate that Tokio he steals a woman from Ryousuke I'm sure he didn't love her.
I don't like Sora at all she cheated on her husband and she was naked front of Tokio just only for painting. Pfff!!! This show turned to romance now? Too sad for ryou
