I'm more interested in the technical side of it. I recall the bomber only mentioned that if he slowed down, he'd buy the farm, but how the heck would he know how much effort to use with pedaling? Surely the bomb must have a Kph limit, but Kinji's no Lance Armstrong, there's no way anyone would have known how fast he pedals.

But maybe I'll answer my own question. Mr Segway could act as the chase plane, ensuring he kept a certain speed above the Segway's speed. Oh how fun

My guess is that's what the remote control robot was for, it probably has a built in radar gun to mark out his speed.

and judging from the road, theres a blind curve going down so theres a factor it affected his speed during the flat areas.

Here's a funny thought. What if he accidentally went on an uphill road?

Heck, I'm wondering if Segways can even go that fast, let alone maintain that special balance without spinning out

Series has great potential, but most of that is lost because of generic Rie loli.

That's got to be lamest opening to a story I've ever seen.
Are you kidding? You must not have seen many lame openings then. The series KNOWS it's a generic opening and it actually makes fun of itself for doing it. That negates anything "lame" about it.

I disagree because I think she's the cutest (character design-wise) Rie loli so far....but I am biased towards twin tails and pink hair....

Maybe she doesn't bother me because the Rie loli I'm most familiar with is Shana and I've only seen a handful of episodes of Hayate and Zero No Tsukaima. I haven't even watched Toradora yet so seriously, this is no big deal for me.

Kinji himself saves this series from being "too generic", imho. I've watched the episode three times and every time Aria pulls out those twin katana from nowhere, I burst out laughing.

The show obviously isn't supposed to be taken seriously so haters, stop hating and have fun with it!
Or just drop it and don't come back to this thread telling us "it's for idiots" or "how much it sucks", because please, that's just annoying and rude to people who actually like it.

I know, right?
I believe I already went to such lengths as to explain why Aria's skirt shouldn't behave like that... but, other than that, both in the episode and in the PV, there clearly were a couple of scenes where a panty-shot is almost and ultimately inevitable.
You can't have scenes which just scream "upskirt incoming" or "pantyshot = imminent", and then not going all the way with it.
It just feels ridiculous and laughable at best. Irritating and annoying at worst.

Hmm, you might be right.
But, when there's so much focus on her defying physics skirt and legs, coupled that with camera angles and such clearly trying to make you get a view of what's underneath, or even just for titillating purposes, to the point where all you can think of at that moment is: oh, it's coming... a panty-shot is incoming....

yep, I think that's where a pantsu "should" be.
Of course, there also are (more often than not) places where a pantsu "shouldn't" be, and yet it's still there. But this is another story altogether.

I'm not asking this to be original you know, i just pointed out the major flaws here >_< but yes i do like if there are originality but that isn't exactly the principal focus to me, take Hoshizora for example, i enjoyed that one one much more than this one, and Hoshizora is at first glance another vn/eroge adapatation but they did right what was supposed to be done and thank god lacks some of the major flaws here ( the mc over there is much more likeable as well the girls at first glance and there aren't any generic irritanting Kagumiya loli) but yeah the good points compensated here, the action and the mc in pimp mode, almost like IS >_>

Did anyone ever complain about Hayate busting ass on a Mamachari?

Well anyways, the parts between harem-comedy and action seemed a bit disjointed to me. They followed the events in the book, but for some reason it felt as if I was watching 2 shows melded into one Oo

So our consolation prize is a high-octane scene where the subjects are in a 69 position...

Good enough I guess?

How about yellow, hmm? Or blue, Aria's glowing in pink how can anyone be surprised when her pantsu is pink?

I get the pattern though. Shirayuki and her black bra, Riko's would be yellow, etc...

disagree.... lol
I can't suggest any other seiyuu for Aria......

anyway, enjoy it first... guys!
we do know that there are a lot of potentials in this anime
so watch it until the end.... ^^

And there is nothing wrong with choosing the best known voice for the character type. Its funny that you find something wrong with KugiRie voicing the character type she is most known for but ponder why people would give this generic show negative reviews.
All I'm saying is that I'm tired of having KugiRie everywhere .. same goes for Hirano for that matter. We need some fresh blood for a change, like they fortunately did with Merry ..

And for that pantsu thing, when Aria jumped off that building among other things, the pantsu was never visible which I was saying that was a good thing. It would have been '' realistic '' for it to show, but I'm glad it didn't because with useless fanservice like that this show would have been much worse. For me it's not a bonus, it's something that ruins the show. Well okay, it was seen in couple shots as 2ch has discovered in the image above but in highspeed motion like that you hardly pay attention to small details like that.

Hmm. Interesting thought. In my opinion, there was something from that scene that was missing, and it was, surprisingly, some pantsu. But don't get me wrong, it would have made sense to show it, but not cause a rift of blatant fanservice by zooming in on it, as if Kinji had super-vision. Showing it from that faraway camera view they used would have been the sensible fanservice, and zooming in on it would be the series-ruining fanservice.

But staying zoomed out isn't my preferred type of fanservice for this series. Take for example Aria's zoomed in Bra in the storage room. I was woefully surprised because.... of the black shadow, but it made sense because that's really what Kinji was seeing, and then he went all psycho-analysis about it. It's what I call situational fanservice; which I feel fit that part of the story rather well, but was missing from Aria's free-fall because really, my original opinion of why we didn't see some pantsu?

I thought it must have saved a lot for the animating process to simply have the skirt flap in 2 frames the way it (usually) did (instead of the several it would have took to not only flap, but move upwards for that pantsu revealing intention)

Boom.

Anyways, I think that this is one of my favorite shows this season and so far it hasn't deceive me. There aren't too much things in the LN that they took out, and it's better than IS. At least the protagonist is cool, not like some others.
