THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
I'm not a fan of this new guy tbh. He can do coupling too? What.

Dio is jealous.
Just another typical episode I guess. The action was okay I guess. Oh well, at least Hina is a better mood now.

That new coupler that sent by the reporter is voiced by KajiKaji?! From Vantarei (フロム・ヴァンタレイ)? Dio knows him, as the popular one in the school. Though Dio's body changed that he cannot do coupling with him. Kirito coupler x KajiKaji's character?!

Enemy again, they are blocking the coupling, so Dio fought back. KajiKaji's character staying... that means?

So he can couple with Aoba too : 0. Dio doesn't look pleased by this. Rivalry intensifies!!!!

2:23 Fromm? What kind of crazy parent names their child that?

15:41, 21:06 is it wrong to get erections when they start coupling?

--------------------------
1. This episode was boring, even with the fights & Fromm introduced. I hope the pace picks up.

2. I wish there isn't always fight scenes at the end of each episode. gets too predictable

3. I'm really dying to know why Hina is on the other side.

Interesting that Aoba was able to perform coupling with Fromm. Dio getting a little jealous with that.

Meh, watching them fly around like chickens with their heads cut off is getting old. Do the alliance mechs even have weapons?

Haven't seen Aoba do shit other than killing the 1 enemy mech pilot when he first came to the future. Learn to fire a gun or swing a sword already.

"Let's coupling!" lmao. I swear this just screams BL doujins.

It's so refreshing not to hear Aoba go "HINAAAA!"

yes. same here. and how obvious it was from the very beginning that fromm will join their group.

the battle in the end was painful to watch bc they fought vs some incompenent guys that cant do shit bu spam mines and grenades like there is no tomororrow.it served no purposed other than showing off coupling between fromm and aoba.

2/5

So we have a love triangle for coupling between the 3 guys now? XDXDXD

That pv was gay lol.

It's only 12 eps why the hell did they need to fill it with some stupid filler-y stuff. It would've been enough to introduce Fromm and the Imperial guards -.-

I'm wondering why Aoba can couple with anyone at high levels? Will Fromm be using one of the main machines sometimes now or was it a one time things?

Well...hope nxt ep is better.

Nice episode. The battle at the end was really good. Imperial guards, just as their names suggests, are really tough cookies to deal with. Each mech is a true tank with shield that can spam missiles and mines. The commanding unit uses a dang shotgun. Man, shotgun is rare in mecha show. I'm glad they include it in Buddy Complex.

People seem to think battle should have a lot of deaths. Remember that these guys are elite of elite in Zogilia. They fight with competent tactic devised by a capable commander. Mine spam and tank mech are a clever way to negate high maneuverability of the Coupling system. If not for Dio's courageous attack through the formation, Luxion would have been shot.

One important note here is Aoba seems to be able to couple with any pilot as implied by Dio's thought. That means it is Aoba's unique ability as a time traveler. Who can say Aoba won't couple with Hina in the future?

^ My thoughts exactly.

I was about to be really disappointed in the show when I thought it was going to just be a beach episode, but luckily they only did maybe a single frame of a "beach episode".

And yeah, I dunno why some people are saying this was a bad episode, there was nothing filler-esque about it. True this is only a one-cour, but I have a feeling it'll have a second season... at least I hope it will, otherwise all the build-up may be kind of a waste, but I'm pretty sure it will. The fact that a new protagonist just got introduced is really kind of a big deal in my opinion. I'm not sure what purpose having 3 couplers will serve just yet, but it could definitely be useful to say the least.

So, not a lot has happened except we know Aoba can most likely couple with anybody. Not a lot of episodes left now, how are they going to fix their story in 7 episodes?

This is more like a character development episode. We see that Dio and Aoba have had better rapport after Aoba's nice gesture toward his sister. Dio shows himself to be a tsundere, which I've suspected for a while now. His effort to save Aoba was cute.

On Zogilia's side, we see Hina begining to have more questions about this mysterious enemy pilot. It's funny to see her being back in suspicion due to Aoba not attacking her :D. It's also nice to see Hina smile again. Bizon looks like a really cool bro. It will be hard to see him devolve into madness due to Aoba taking everything away from him.

btw, that lazy Captain is definitely my favorite character so far.

Dio is clearly the tsundere of this series. Well, time for the dere to kick in as Fromm threatens his relationship with Aoba! Overall, this wasn't all that exciting of an episode and felt like kind of a waste, but I guess it was more setup than anything else. I just hope this won't end up being rushed...

Inb4 Dio dies because he's now expendable :3

Awesome, didn't know Kaji Yuuki would be in this. So many of my favorite VAs :) but that still doesn't make this episode/series more interesting...

So predictable that while they're filming, the would be attacked. And of course Fromm joining them too. Or that Aoba is able to couple with Fromm as well.

Stating the obvious, this anime has a BL undertone to it.
I find Aoba to be kinda clingy/needy.
More Hina please.

Darn. I wan to see the Vice Commander wear one. Too bad.

I can see this episode as a nice introduction for the new characters. And a nice bit of refreshment from the battles. Anessa falling in love with the handsome Fromm was amusing.

Dio starting to get soft on Aoba and showing his dere side was a nice character development.

A bolt action rifle? Whoa! You never see that in a mecha anime often.

I had the same thought when I heard Fromm spoke. I thought Aoba and him had the same VA but researching a bit tells me I'm wrong. Lets see...


Wait...
Aoba = Kirito
Hina = Sachi

Huh?

Good episode. very interesting how Aoba coupled up with Fromm (weird name)....Dio seemed jealous but I feel its more than that. for a moment there, I thought they were going to do a three-way coupling. would have been cool in a way.

Well that was amusing to watch. With Fromm staying, I'm pretty sure we will get to see more of jealous Dio.
Also, Zogilia pilots need more screen time. Especially Bizon.

Meh episode, introducing a sociable, flattering guy. Guys who always give tons of lip service aren't exactly my favorite type of guy. Just seems to thrown in to cause some strife between Aoba and Dio again, something they already have enough of. That or like others pointed out, to just be the likable guy that'll get killed, so Aoba can truly start to despise the enemy.

Dio is jealous for not being able to couple with Aoba? :p

Nice episode. It's a good thing that they actually included a battle instead of just focusing on the stupid filming and shit hahhaha

I can't help but feel suspicious about Fromm. He's a nice guy and all, but isn't it too sudden that he's joining the Cygnus?

Can't wait for the next ep!

Knew Fromm VA was Kaji Yuuk when I first heard him spoke. I am familiar with his voice. Really? They don't sound the same to me? I familiarized both Matsuoka, Yoshitsugu and Kaji Yuuki VA. Also many VA too. Yep Hina is Sachi.

I hope Kirito can finally save Sachi this time T__T
