I know what you mean especially when he blinks.

Seki Tomokazu as Captain was a nice treat for fans of his past works (especially Domon), so i hope we see him again soon. The few scenes with Nino were pretty awesome as well, i mean we've seen how well SHAFT can do giant people attacking cities, and this was one of them.

& oh my lord that ED is incredible . Easily my favorite of the season. Need single release now.

Kobayashi Yuu was just awesome as the amazoness, it would have been a crime for her not to be in this show. Hope we'll see the amazons again soon, I'm very curious to find out who the Boss is. The fantasy/dream sequences with Nino were hilarious, especially the fishes turning into a cloth

The Arakawa gag contest was one of the best since the beginning of the series. I did not see that one coming

Holy hell, this episode reminded me how awfully funny this series can be, and how amazingly crazy Kobayashi Yū can be.

That was even funnier, if you knew where the reference came from.

I about died when I noticed the Bt'X and Saint Seiya references.

Even funnier still is the fact that Nino believes she's from Venus and the fish turn into a cloth.

See, Pisces is referenced by a fish. Aphrodite is basically a mature Venus (Aphrodite was the Pisces Saint in StS), so having Nino of all people turn fish into a cloth (pegasus!) was like a double-whammy of a reference.

Oh my god I'm looking too deep into this. I... I'm nerding out! D:

The same could be said of all references. In case you're wondering if I got it, then I sure did (incidentally, that's where my username come from).

Whoa, cool. The baseball that Recruit picked up for the residents said "John * Lennon" on it.

Holy hell was that funny. The first half was a bit funny, but the insanity that was the second half made the episode. Season 2 bolted out the gate in terms of comedy. I mean, wow. I didn't get the references, but it was still damn funny seeing Nino's sleep transformation, and her attacks during the city destroying scene. The whole talking snot bubble scene was also hilarious. The captain is funny, and a perfect fit for this series. His reactions were priceless. Poor Hoshi, being called a flower . Anyway, just a laugh filled episode. I am very impressed with season 2 so far.

It's funny how all the characters of this series are CRAZY.

This is a show about... crazy people going insane.

MM!, Ika Musume, Arakawa...

There's a lot of shows this season that can be described as "a cast full of weirdoes". Though this one does have the Shaft advantage.

I love when shows like this just let go of all restraints and let the show trip out for a while.

I do think they're just being eccentric...not crazy crazy.Behind those eccentricities, lies a sad and tragic stories for each of them....Its just a mask for them to hide their true feelings...hence they wearing masks and cosplay.As usual Kou the protagonist is in the middle of it all...

If frued is with them, he will be in heaven ^

I love the fact that The Last Samurai character is getting some more airtime this series, and Billy and err, forgot her name.

There's something about this show that is just so amazingly good. Every week it just keeps getting better :P

As has been said by others countless times now, I, too, have missed this show so much. Just watched the first episode (I know I'm terribly late, don't ask >_>), and it cracked me up on so many levels. The characters are just so... trippy.

The best and funniest scene was when Mayor entered Nino's room I just love Ric's snide remarks about the kappa costume. And to any believers, yes it is a costume ! His zipper was open for crying out loud ! Of course it's possible we're under an illusion...

Aaahh, this is such a quality show. Off to watch episode two.
