Yeah, i've been saying that all along, and because of that i enjoyed episode 22 a lot. I'd probably say it's one of the most enjoyable episodes from this series to date, packed with some nice Yui development --- my favorite character.

Also i lol'd quite a bit at Saruyama's reaction to the girls in animal costumes. & speaking of Saruyama, next episode looks to be rather interesting. I can't wait to see how far they'll take it in terms of art direction.

Only expectations I had coming into the show was to see some fun animated adventures of characters I enjoy watching doing silly things thats just about it...If the manga had some plot then I could see the complaints, but its just as random as most of these episodes.

The thing that annoys me is when they try and base an episode around Saruyama when the series has so many more interesting characters to explore...Hell i'd even take a Zastin episode over one about Saru.

The only other episode that really got me was the Kyoko one because along with Yami/Eve she's a holdover from another series I enjoyed alot and they basically butchered her episode...

Bleh, figures it's the one I haven't downloaded yet.

But in the meantime, are we sure that it wasn't just a mistranslation from the subbers? Because seeing as how she's in ToLoveRu for the sake of her fans from Black Cat in the first place, I think if she really was 24 years old here, they would make a bigger deal about it. That or maybe she was fibbing in order to land a job? I just think at least the blogs I read that cover this show would point this out, which they haven't.

She had no reason to lie, and it's not like it's that big a deal.

Just because it wasn't mentioned in blogs doesn't mean it's not true you know.

Well...technically, she didn't say "in Earth years". The sub I watched had it as something similar to "by [insert some name that I don't remember]'s calculations, I'm 24..."

(I deleted the episode after I watched it, so I can't go back and take a look to refresh my memory. ^^

who has the original script for her interview at the employment office? It could clear some confusions.

Well actually, I think it would be worth mentioning and would be a bit of a deal if a character who looks 13/14 years old is 24, lol. If she really is, that is. I'll check it myself to be safe when the episode is done downloading. (I've still got a downloading backlog >.> )

From what I could remember It was never in the manga so the 24 thing is just something the shows creators made up.

I'm not saying it's not possible, but I'm saying that it sounds wierd for various reasons, so I want to check it for myself before I ship it, lol. I'm cautious about this kind of thing, as I have tons of experience seeing lots of translation errors in anime subs since long ago, and I'm even more cautious now after the whole BillyxGraham translation fiasco in Gundam 00.

Anyways I just downloaded and watched the Chihiro subbed episode, and the subtitles were indeed correct, but what Yami said was "I don't know in Earth years, but in the Kronos Galaxy (or something to the effect of that name) I'm 24." (on a side note, the guy taking the info was a bit not-too-noticing about this and just wrote down "24" for her age.... ) So, what Cat_Megex and outcast_within said.

I knew that sounded too wierd....

I don't get what the big deal is. Age and looks are often way way off in anime. There are tons of girls that look 11 but are really like 800, or girls that are 30 but look 11, etc. Either way the episode still sucked ass.

Age gaps that big would usually be in regards to time warps, cold-sleep preservation, immortality, etc. Besides which, I make a "big" deal because I'm still interested in this show (as well as being a big Yami/Eve fan ), and I don't find it to be half as bad as some people here are trying to ship it.

people people we are talking about ALIENS here.
Would it be strange for an alien to be 24 even if she looked like a 14 year old?
So far we have seen giants, rocket people, free sex cats. Would you be very surprised if there was a planet called loli?

WTH!!! Yami is 24....
Even manga do not said about her age...

Anyway I like episode 22 because I like Yui very much..
Nice Yui development but they make Yami suck in this episode...

Anyway another stupid episode in 23...

But the one the most I like is Yui and Yami costume... NSFW!!!!

i have seen 27 looks like 11 in anime, Doki Doki school hour, 30 looks like 11-12, paradise kiss. yami is 24 looks like 14-15, doesn't really stand out that much in comparison.
