THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Fabulousness straight from the start. <3
Takeshi always has to be the servant though, lol.

Dat huge Madoka sure was scary; it was very interesting just thinking what asspull move Takuto would pull out to save her, but totally did not see Wako doing the asspulling

Pretty horrible episode. What the hell did Wako even do? Purify the overphase?

Well, at least Samekh finally fucking shows up next episode.

P.S.: Remember when MAL wasn't a horrible website hosted off of horrible servers? Redirect redirect redirect.

Wow, losing 3 (or 2) members all of the sudden!

Pretty scary, IS-like, machine!

Well, that battle mad Wako decided to do the role with kissing Takuto.

That girl who already married saying lol things (jealousy, for example)!

What did Wako actually do? lol.

Anyway, bit of a meh episode compared to most of the recent ones, I guess it's fine as long as the ending doesn't suck.

Her comments were so funny and so true at the same time throughout the ep. for some reason.

That Madoka machine was freakin' creepy. I'm kind of glad that Wako voided that thing so let's hope we don't see it again. It would be good if some the characters left vanishing age because there aren't many episodes left and I want a good conclusion, thus, they need less people to fight.

Nooo, don't leave Madoka!!! щ(゚Д゚щ) Let me see moar of your screws. (屮゚Д゚)屮

Seriously, this weeks screws of Madoka sure were nice good episode i mean. Good to see Keito being interested in Takuto, maybe she'll rape him next time. (゜∀゜)Wako being useful sure is unexpected, at least she did something good for the first time in the series, but i thought she'd Apprivoise. Little of Sarina too, i very much approve.
B-but where is mah Sakana-chan? She was supposed to actually appear not just be shown in Shithead's memories. How could they... (#゚Д゚)

This series has way too many plot threads running right now to wrap up in 4 episodes.

I was kinda hoping Wako's assist was going to end up being the 4th phase rather than just an altered version of the king's pillar.

Sarina made an appearance, great episode ヽ(´Д`ヽ)
No but really, she gets way too little screen-time. ಠ_ಠ
Really disappointed that Sakana-chan was only in a flashback though. >_>

And why, oh why must Wako do something useful?
Can't she just die and like never again have another second of screen-time?

Wako seems jealous that Takuto's spending too much time with Keito. So she finally "WomenUp" and decides to Chu~ him. Interesting.

Keito looks like she has some hidden feelings for G-Bishonen.

Mrs.Watanabe sure speaks wise words.

I think I forgot to mention this, but isn't the thing you're NOT supposed to do with a snake bite is suck the poison out?
Anyways, pretty blah episode. Overdrive didn't really work (lol huge robot Madoka), and WTF did Wako do? She like ... "un" Overdrived it? O_O She didn't want someone to hit on the man she loved? Seriously, WTF?
I guess Wako decided that she wants both of them now. Joy oh joy ...
Well, at least Sugata will get some action next episode. For a main character he doesn't show up very much
I like Watanabe, she's awesome :P Nice that Takashi's going back to her

Quite nice episode, liked the fight. I somehow doesn't it look like Sugata will go all emo in the next ep because of the kiss scene ? I mean in the preview Samekh is shown in the Zero Time and Sugata in his shadow looking kinda depressed or smth like that and after that the scene in the theater is shown where he sees something(probably the kiss scene). But still with those bad thoughts of mine I still hope that won't be the case why Samekh will show up.

It's been confirmed in interview prior to series airing that nobody dies in Star Driver (at least 'till climatic showdown, I gather)

It would kinda go against series's very nature and themes, you know

anyway, this episode was fabulous concentration aka pretty nice

Good episode, I mostly enjoyed the second half, first was kind of slow. The fight was really interesting, and I liked that final scene with Simone, hopefully it will pick up to a better pace now that we're at the final episodes.

I seriously question since the begining of the series how every character in the show is stupid enough to not notice a crux member just because of those masks, which only covers their upper face. All of their hairstyles are UNIQUE, except for that shotacon teacher.

The only thing we learned from this pointless episode is that becoming a giant robot makes you VERY, VERY horny. I predict a rushed and messy ending for this series.

Well everyone pretty much knows who's who in the Crux without their mask on. They just don't really have a reason to approach one another outside their meetings.

But this is the sort of thing that happens when you try and run an organization with 15-17 year olds and maybe three actual adults.

And Sakana is not Takto's mother, who ever mentioned that >_> I think Head is just trying to replace Sora or fill the void she left, but just ended up pushing Sakana away. Like what Head did with Sora.

I like Head a bit more now after this episode. It showed that he does regret the things that he has lost up until this point. And believes that he'll be able to get it all back when he achieves his goals.

I am mad that Takeshi pretty much left Adult Bank for nothing. He was pretty much filler space for The Vanish Age's Coup de taut.

The seal is maintained by the maiden's cybodies, it isn't weird for one of them to possess a power related to sealing.
This artificial form was supposed to be more instable than a normal phase change, I don't think it is weird for Wako to be able to return it to normal. Rather than that I always wondered why the maidens weren't doing anything before now.

Libido is like the powerlevel in this serie, but it seem that they are also associating love with libido which is kind of weird imo.
Madoka lost to Wako in term of libido and that's it why she was strong enough at this moment to seal herself in her cybody.

Actually it is the opposite. You need to stop circulation in the bitten area then take as much blood/poison as you can in this area. This only serve as first aid tough, if Takuto hadn't gone to the hospital then he would probably had died or at the very least his condition would have worsened.

Sakana and Takuto's mom are two different person.
Basically the flashback were about head saying that he lost everything to his greed of power and not only once.
The maiden are not allowed to leave the island and Takuto's mom did. Sakana's seal was broke in ep 1 and then after clinging to head she left the island.

Agreed. At first I thought Takuto might actually have to do something, but then I thought, nah, he'll get a power-up. But instead Wako comes into play. It would have been so awesome if Wako had been the one to murder that bitch. My opinion of her would greatly improve.

Aside from more information on Head, nothing stood out much for me this episode. More Wako and Takuto interactions.. I hate her so much for entering into the play for the kiss scene. And naturally, she will be accepted for the part. Sarina's the club president, right? She should play the role.

I'm really getting tired of this. My ratings for this show are getting lower and lower.
It's always the same thing every episode, Tauburn always wins and when he's about to get beaten, some miracle happens and saves his ass.
Plus it's always Takuto fighting for the good guys, what if someone doesn't like Takuto? Kinda sucks for them a lot.

This only reason I'm torturing myself to watch it every week even though we know Tauburn will win anyway, is because Glittering Crux always comes up with something new to try and beat Tauburn with. Like this week for example.

I really really hope that we see Samekh in the next episode, like the preview suggested. It will be very interesting to see. If not, I'll be disappointed yet again.

why didn't Kanako apply for the kiss scene?! It would be awesome to see how wako reacts if she finds out Takuto and Kanako kissed "without the glass".

Why hasn't Keito's song played during zero time these past couple episodes?

-I guess that's the last will see of the crazy bitches. Also, regarding this episode's battle and its awfully convenient outcome,


-This episode made me realize that we really didn't have any idea of the how and when Sakana's seal got broken, and now we see that Head got to know her to a fairly personal level. It was also interesting to see that he has some regret over what he's done in his quest for power and how he hopes the end result will allow him to fix that. I had thought the ambition had swallowed him completely.

-Takashi's importance levels seem to sliding all over the place. When he was first introduced it was revealed that someone other than Takuto could have a mark, which made me think that he'd be some sort of worthy rival, but that never came to any real fruition. Then they had him defect to Vanishing Age, seemingly setting up for a Third Phase rematch or some more characterization, but that got quashed now that he's back with Adult Bank (but they did give some info about his family). Also, what's up with him and Simone? Yeesh.

-Sugata seems to be showing signs of jealousy, which if I had to guess will probably be the focus up until the end of the show. While on the one hand I'd like to see that (love triangle problems reach their boiling point, friend against friend, and then epic team-up at the end), I still hope more of the nature of the Crux and Cybodies will be revealed too.

It always strikes me how my posts on FOR TEH LULZ shows like this and Infinite Stratos are more substantial than those on "more complex" shows.
Ha-cha!

Nature: its predictibility (Ginga bishounen never losing)?
Theme: that Pretty Boys cannot kill people?

Bella Wako has powers?...and the fight made her want to kiss Takuto suddenly?
In the next episode, Wako should just die on stage and let Takuto and Sugata kiss each other. Because of her they are totally doubting their orientation..like totally! XD

Want to know heads story too.What is he so depressed and angry about?

I don't really get it lol.

There's nothing wrong on disliking her/not caring for her but wishing she would die in a fire? Whaaa-? So far, she's been pretty level-headed throughout the show (and did everyone just suddenly forget how badass she was in episode 19???)
I guess this is a simple case of haters gonna hate.

I'm quite aware of that but it would have been a GREAT twist (imo)
Plus Enokido is sort of a troll on what he says. I mean, look at the writer for Madoka Magica and how that turned out lol. People shouldn't always follow what writers/directors say word for word but you're probably right.

Then again, there are other outcomes worse than death, right ;)

Madoka is indeed a monster! She's leaving the island because everyone knows her identity? I thought all the members of Glittering Crux knew who each other was. That makes no sense. In any event, yes Madoka, please go and take that butch Kou with you!

I actually like Mrs. Watanabe. She has an uncanny ability to assess a person's feelings and their motivations behind their actions. She nailed it with Wako! And she gave really wise advice to her assistant. I think Takashi has realized that Vanishing Age is full of evil doers and that's why he wants to return to Adult Bank.

As for Wako...she's not in love with Sugata and Sugata is not in love with her. They're just really good friends that happen to be betrothed to one another. I wonder if kissing Takuto will break her seal. I thought the maidens were not allowed to kiss or engage in any sexual activity.
