I don't think it's unusual for him to have a girlfriend, and I totally can see why Aoi, Eris and Manami have feelings for him. I do however find it a little odd he is considered to "a catch" by the other girls in the school. Granted, I don't think I've ever seen that done in a harem show, but Kio doesn't give off the aura of being successful with ladies.
Well, don't forget they are living on Okinawa. It IS a chain of islands with a lower population density than the mainland of Japan. Unless you want to make a big decision to move to the big cities, your choice of partners have to come locally. People aren't after movie-stars, billionaires or beefcakes.
If Kio can't get a girlfriend, then most people wouldn't be able to either. Finding a partner isn't some rare privilege, you know.

And of course by Western standards Kio isn't successful with the ladies. But that's because he is going for the old fashioned Asian courtship method. Making excuses to hang out with someone, to know each other better, and then spend a bloody long time deciding when to ask her out officially. That's how it was traditionally done. Kio isn't going to go clubbing all night and have 30 girl's phone numbers.

1, it is very interesting that the author is hanging a very big lampshade at the tradition of some random cute alien girl showing up and stealing the guy from girls who had knew him for a long time. Aoi's speech is really way overdue, for all the female characters who suffered because they aren't androids, aliens, or some magical goddess. At the very least, the point is made that Eris shouldn't automatically get priority just because she dropped out of the sky and is more exotic than the others. It was quite moving, with Aoi making it clear that she wanted so badly to have Kio but Eris is being a near insurmountable obstacle.
I agree it felt very good to hear this speech in such a series. That's a nice change from all those harem series where all the girls are friendly rivals. I'm sure Eris and Aoi will end up as friends later on, but at least she managed to get this out of her chest. The second half of the speech ("That's no fair! I've liked him way before you came here!) would have been more legitimate coming out of Manami though, amongst the three girls she's the one who has loved Kio the longest.

Megami poster is out:



Still no Aoi... orz

Yea I was actually hoping Aoi-chan would be in the Megami poster but sadly she's not and therefore I'm disappointed.

But then she has no chest as it seems so I can understand why she doesn't get any love

Still Eris is there, so ain't all bad

For all of those who are curious, this week's opening was Starsky & Hutch.

Where did Kempfer do a cameo?

The previews exist for one purpose.

Showing off Okinawa. And Ayahi Takagaki giving vague summaries of the next episode.

-"Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic"

-The paper runes are drawn with magnetic ink that act as circuitry to manipulate the 靈子(spirit particle) in the air to achieve its effect.
I guess this is a case of "Any sufficiently analysed magic is indistinguishable from technology" (if you know where this came from you read too much web comics)

-Eris calls such technology "magic" but I guess this is more like a 5th force of nature science isn't aware of.

-A point that shows how the Cats are more advanced than the Dogs is that Eris understands how it works but the Dogs don't have a clue.

Thumbs up Episode 08

A interesting episode but could have been better. I mean it only resolved a little Aoi's love for Kio, rivalry between Aoi and Manabi as well as a foiled plot by the dogs. Personal comments on different episode parts.......well the crowds for the cat religion are as crazy as ever based on this=>
http://i620.photobucket.com/albums/t...3/a9390dad.jpg
Was ever Kio lucky to have Aoi show him (touch him too) shooting a gun in the virtual reality environment=>
http://i620.photobucket.com/albums/t...3/271df990.jpg
Oh shit! They copied a little Star Trek here=>
http://i620.photobucket.com/albums/t...3/9f738402.jpg
I recently read that Japan is strict with car issues so I am assuming Okinawa is not so much based on this is the second time I see a muscle car here=>
http://i620.photobucket.com/albums/t...3/e7c1947d.jpg
which makes me wonder what kind is this one since the last one I know was a corvette stingray? Was I only one to laugh at the dog communicating by computer? Here=>
http://i620.photobucket.com/albums/t...3/75845710.jpg
Wow! Dojo style fighting of Kio/Aoi.....pretty nice here=>
http://i620.photobucket.com/albums/t...3/944b73e0.jpg
ROFL! I though the bird was going to crap Kio here=>
http://i620.photobucket.com/albums/t...3/9c998b18.jpg
Hot mature females are hot right here=>
http://i620.photobucket.com/albums/t...3/09f019fc.jpg
http://i620.photobucket.com/albums/t...3/198f8f81.jpg
That was a amazing Manami throw using the broom brought by the assistroid here=>
http://i620.photobucket.com/albums/t...3/24907ec4.jpg
Ah damn! Those assistroids are back to censor here=>
http://i620.photobucket.com/albums/t...3/37b6a52f.jpg
http://i620.photobucket.com/albums/t...3/fa72134b.jpg
Haha! Stomach hole! Might be a good fashion trend to exploit here=>
http://i620.photobucket.com/albums/t...3/7d8e8a95.jpg
well at least the bullets were anti-materia again so they would not harm no one. I think dog girl here got a breast upgrade since they look way bigger=>
http://i620.photobucket.com/albums/t...3/93d5e6ea.jpg
In the intermission.....got to like that Teru Bozu of Kio on Aoi's umbrella here=>
http://i620.photobucket.com/albums/t...3/8237e5da.jpg
Got to admit that I liked Manami's hair style here and with that jacket she looked pretty much here=>
http://i620.photobucket.com/albums/t...3/2112be39.jpg
Oh shit! Did Manami just confess here about her love to Kio?=>
http://i620.photobucket.com/albums/t...3/a00a2ad2.jpg
Crazy stand off is crazy indeed here=>
http://i620.photobucket.com/albums/t...3/60e8b73d.jpg
Weapons check #1...what is that weapon=>
http://i620.photobucket.com/albums/t...3/49c2eab4.jpg
Weapons check #2...what is that weapon=>
http://i620.photobucket.com/albums/t...3/fd23d651.jpg
The hot matures bodies were not so bad here=>
http://i620.photobucket.com/albums/t...3/5d0f7a8e.jpg
I did laugh so hard when they were sent in the box back to dog lady here=>
http://i620.photobucket.com/albums/t...3/8e22cfa4.jpg
GIF time! I made 2 nice avatars of Manami eating=>

Originals here=>
http://i620.photobucket.com/albums/t...3/2fdee685.gif
http://i620.photobucket.com/albums/t...3/6e542353.gif
Two amazing GIFs of the bullets flying and colliding....now that was amazing effects especially the details of the anti-matter bullet. Also the other GIF has amazing details of when the sniper bullet dissipates due to the field of the anti-matter bullet and some bare skin of Manami's breasts=>

Originals here since they are big=>
http://i620.photobucket.com/albums/t...3/b586c827.gif
http://i620.photobucket.com/albums/t...3/5cec72ea.gif
Episode is 10/10 for the bullets part....too amazing.

Yeah me too.... sadly the only thing about the dog woman is her failed plot once again and of course the dog droid communicating with her. There was also a check up on the dog droids to see if they got some data recorded off the enemy?

Yeah I know.......I demonstrate that in a pic but Aoi looked not so bad with military jacket too.

if solid snake were here.... i'm sure he'd be teaming up with the three of them, with manami being snake's apprentice.

also, i thought kio KNEW how to handle firearms? if theres a spoiler thang..... PM me...

and francis, the pistol was a Beretta 93R, a machine pistol based on the 92F that can fire bursts of three rounds.

second is what appears to be an SVD dragunov with a laser attachment

Episode 7 was, a fun beach episode, liked the "Bewitched" style intro. I'm waiting for "My Favorite Martian" I wonder if they'll use that? Was that show popular in Japan. The two shows seem quite similar actually, especially when compared the movie that came out a few years ago. Tail holes in the bottoms was funny, especially the girl that wore it backwards.

It's going to be hard to get a permit for a military grade weapon
