I don't even roll my eyes anymore when I see a blond haired blue eyed boisterous titan used as the depiction of American men.

I'm guessing the reason Gai is at the school is because Shu is in danger or something from the GHQ? Maybe he's been used as bait to draw them out?

I saw the members of GHQ and Gai and Shu all smartly dressed, must be a prom night or something XD

I wanna know how they explain that Shu is able to go back to attending school heh....

I guess the "delete all of his data" is their explanation on why that can happen?

A topic that we did not touch on so far, I think, is the Leukocyte firing on the airplanes full of "reinforcements" at the beginning of episode. Those reinforcements are troops from the OAU and the Leave Nations, which I am guessing is our equivalent of the United Nations.

If foreign aid is coming to help with the Undertakers, what does that mean for the Antibodies and GHQ? It seems like international forces are against what the current internal forces are doing. Then again, I am wondering if they are using this like how the UN assisted the rebel forces in Libya.

Yeah I forgot to mention that -- I was surprised that the incoming planes were meant as reinforcements for Funeral Parlor, not the GHQ. I had assumed they were spying on troop reinforcements they would attack.

And how many days was Shu gone? does his mother even notice her only son was gone for day/s? unless he was not really her son to begin with but man another drunken, hot looking young mom well at least she looks nice

Most anime parents are pretty negligent. I've pretty much accepted it as a staple of anime and probably why their children have such emotional issues.

The other tendency is that they will die. Not sure if that's any better.

It was stated in episode 3, around the 7:50 mark, that Shu's mom only comes home about once a week. That is also, I believe, a reason why he is so socially awkward.

Didn't Gai already show his face in public as the leader of Funeral Parlor? How can he show up in public?

In anime it's enough to put glasses or change hair style.

Or a slit-skirted waitress as the depiction of Chinese women. No, wait. I actually do roll my eyes then. Or gnash my teeth or something.

Shu's mom, Ouma Haruka, is one of Sephirah Genomics' top researcher and is quite a workaholic. Because she is such a workaholic, she does not pay enough attention to her son. She only comes home about once a week. Also, there is a high chance that GHQ did not notify her that her son is part of a resistance, since it would distract her from her work.

Back to the topic of the outside forces, if GHQ blew up a plane full of OAU forces, wouldn't that create an even bigger response from OAU to make an all out full scale attack?

And he did Dance in the Vampire Bund, which I loved, but mainly for the things that were not Yoshino's department.

The two shows he did which I have no problem with were Macross F and Denpateki na Kanojo, which was good, especially the first episode, and especially for the work of the VAs.
I liked Mai HiME and Mai Otome. Actually joined the forum because of them. Liked Code Geass (both seasons), Sora no Woto was nice and refreshing light hearted show too (people are too spoiled with over the top shows like flying-pantsu witches). Didn't like Dance in the Vampire Bund, dropped it early on. Macross uhm no, droped it too. Denpateki na Kanojo sounds familiar but doesn't come to mind; definetly didn't watch it though.

He must be trying something new I guess, since all the other series had pretty standard likeable characters. That said nobody is infalible; whichever way you want to take it. You can think of it as him "failing to disapoint you" since you liked it, that way you don't tarnish his perfect record you have for him just kidding

Nah, he's talking to that blonde girl from Shu's school, Arisa. You can tell from the dress.

& oh god, that American dude

So apparently Shu's mother is Misato from eva. >_>

Goddamn is there anything in this anime that would not remind you to something else? And I'm not even trying to.

I personally liked that Episode 7 preview.

I love the overall style displayed in it, what with the fancy clothes and the cruise ship. Should be another really fun episode!

As for the well-decorated American soldier... While I can certainly see why some are worried here, I'm cautiously optimistic that he'll be a character type that we've badly needed on the GHQ side for awhile now.

Given the "sparkling teeth" display, my sense is that this guy will sincerely think he's being a hero, stomping out "violent terrorists". Such perception of things will be very skewed, of course, but if this is the case for him, at least he's not a guy that's either totally insane or intentionally/knowingly doing evil. If his character is executed decently well, then he might add a welcomed touch of grey to the GHQ side.
