THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
OMG Lelouch! What have you become!? and C.C. as well! Not to mentioned Mikuriya Jin was in it Dx
Watching this gave me the feeling of Macross, Freedom, Mai Hime, Planetes, Code Geass, Zetsubou Sensei, GA, Chobits etc all mixed up together. In another sense, this was really good. Gotta love Sunrise.
That was awesome!
A lot of holes to still be filled, but I guess that'll come soon. Much better than what I expected in animation and character design-wise.
I love the "Ai habu kontorooru!" parodies was hilarious to listen to.(Iirc, it's from Gundam 00, and probably from some other places?)
Cool parodies seen throughout, such as "Good Smile Company", "COSPA", and other companies' logos being seen.
ED is very soothing, can't wait for the full ED!
Honestly, I tried my best to like it, but this was terrible. I was expecting something way more mature/serious though..

Why do I have the feeling that we'll be hearing that a lot more

2 young girls with mechs in space. One of them is a member of an elite devision within the interstellar police force and has big boobs + an outfit that reveals just a bit too much.
Aside from that they're nothing alike.
what a terribly put together episode. I have no clue what this show is supposed to be about. But at least it wasn't as fanservice-y as I had expected it to be. I am loosing all respect for Jun Fukuyama at this point--just another paycheck for him I guess. It has some interesting elements, but many, many more unoriginal ones. We'll see.
Ditto. Can't wait until someone replaces Lelouch's lines with Leopard's. Seeing Lelouch say "Fuck society" would probably made go into Unlimited Lulz Works.
As for the episode it self, it was a lot better than I thought it would be. And it's also nice to see that it didn't had as much fanservice as it seemed it would have.
Haha, it was pointless and stupid at the same time. I liked it as a purely entertaining episode, but I'm pretty sure I won't be watching the whole series though. Oh, and Jun Fukuyama with exactly the same voice and character as Lellouch really shone in this episode, great reference and really funny.
Holland_Kai said: It seems like you either hate it or love it. I for one thought it was awsome and I'm glad Jun did Leopards voice, its a great match up.
Yes, a few shows this season seem to be like that, this and Maria+Holic for instance.
Fukuyama Jun seemed to cross his Lelouch voice with his voice for Watanuki from xxxHolic. His xxxHolic voice kind of bugged me but this one doesn't, mainly because it has more authorita! The man is great but he seems to be in everything ^^
Nah, I didn't like it D8 I don't really like these sci-fi series and the animation style wasn't really nice and... characters weren't interesting :/ When the Leopard talked I was like "omg, it talked -___-" But I guess that I'm going to watch this serie it it would be better later :--------)
Though the beginning was a bit boring, and I was almost afraid the whole anime episode would turn out to be like that, the second part was great. I loved the voice of Leopard (in other words the voice of Jun), great quotes from Leopard, "Fuck Society" and "Shut up! I am going to die." or "What would you have done if that had broken me.. I'm delicate, you know". Animation is nice, and can't wait for the next episode :D
Been a while since the last time i graded a show from the first episode but i chould not help myself ... it was to darn funny :)) and enjoyed this episode a lot ... despite some stuff that annoyed me i got pass them and when Lelouch came with a Black star + Zetsubo sensei personality i was already cracked up laughing :)) . That AI is THE shit .
