Omake "thoughts" ^_^

I think those super-deformed style endings deserve own thread... they are called omakes, right?

They are hilarious! Especially omake after episode 4, all characters beating poor Haruka with mallets and when its Takayuki's turn, Haruka wakes up... I laughed so hard that almost fell off chair.

Great for balancing series' mood...

Yeah, they are great. Ep.5 omake is also hilarious. Ayu and Mayu seems to become the joker role in the anime. Too bad we don't get to see their stories.

They are officially called "Ayu-Mayu Theater"
I like Ep.5 too, but Lunar guys mistranslated most of Ayu's lines...

I did??
I certainly didn't mean too... but she gets cut off every time, and that made it difficult =P

Would you mind enlightening me of my mistakes??

Yeah, those little omake are the best. Although it's still a bit strange to be all sad and all the sudden something so cute comes up. ^^; Good way of lightening the mood though~

well... honestly I really NEEDED those omakes, cuz the episode itself really does an excellent job of depressing me.

I find them funny indeed. Its a nice diversion to kinda like make u smile after feeling so down after watching an episode. I hope it continues, Ayu and Mayu are hilarious.

It's strange ... the episodes are really really touching and tragic, but somehow it's going down much smoother than the REAL tough stuff like SaiKano or Grave of the Fireflies, even though I care MORE about the characters involved.

Wanting to cry never felt so sweet

Good stuff.

Unfortunately, I never got my spirits back up to the point of a smile.

But compared to ep.2, where I was completely depressed and sad, ep.3-5's omakes sure made me better.

(OMG... I almost felt like Takayuki at the end of ep.2... completely shocked. =D)

the Omake's are really really good and they do it soooo well

see sometimes in anime you know whats gonna happen in the next episode and kinda get spoilers sometimes... But in order to have the viewer to watch MORE AND MORE they just make the story interesting and end the episode with you wanting to see what will happen next

The Omake's are funny and random... How they have nothing to do with the episode just seen or have nothing to do into the proceding episode... its a great way to kinda get away from the sad atmosphere that the anime kinda carries at some points

Yeah, like others say, the omakes are definitely a good touch... Allows the emotions to settle down a bit. Another excellent idea to come from this anime, shows that sad animes don't have to bring your mood down completely to succeed.

I wonder if they had to pay the people from Star Trek to actually draw their ship that they made.

hmmm
I don't think they need to ...

The ship is very different than any other Federation Starships ...
The Bridge is very different as well....

As for the idea ... that's another story ...

Those are not really mistakes, but Ayu's lines are direct from Star Trek, so that should be like...

Ayu: Space, the final frontier...
Ayu: Hey! Here comes the best part!
Mayu: If you continue this, scary people from overseas will...(sue us)
Ayu: Okay. Well...
Ayu: These are the voyages of the starship Sky Temple...
Mayu: Sempai!
Ayu: Drat. Then how about this?
Ayu: To boldly go where no one has...
Mayu: Nooooo!
Ayu: Let me go, Mayu Mayu.
Ayu: Hey, don't shove me!

Ahh, I've never seen star trek, so I had no idea o_O
All I knew was the ship looked similar =)
sorry.... (tho now it does make more sense ^_^...)
I'll remember that for the DVD version ^_^ (assuming it doesn't get licenced of course)

Personally I don't like the omakes. I don't like ending an episode on a severly depressing point and then try to have my spirits "perked up" by these. The Omake for Blue Seed and Record of Lodoss War were pretty well placed though "Pah pah pah PARN!"
