Oh NO!!!!

I just watched the actual episode, and it was every bit as awesome as I heard.

.....until the end of the next episode preview. Next episode's title: "The order to Forbid Love Relations."

It doesn't help that this week's episode title was very much literal to the episode.

So the Wall gets taken down only for romance to be banned anyway?! Geez Kawamori, you make such an awesome episode and then you give us a doom predictor like that.


EDIT: *faceslap* Okay, going back over the episode, I noticed that the order to forbid love was already given by eyepatch guy at the end, which I guess it was those ring-things everybody is wearing on their arms in the preview are for.........I am so disappointed in you, Kawamori. Do "killjoy" and "omg, how dumb is that!" mean much?

That part officially shot down the "most awesome episode of the series" title. I wouldn't really mind it so much. If it weren't so freaking dumb. The wall is gone. The segregation is gone. Exactly what does a ban on romance accomplish at this point???

Shoulda known......

I don't know - compared to the series' usual modus operandi, maybe. Aquarion was the only show where the end made me laugh uncontrollably while being very touched and going "AAAAAAAAWWW" at the same time. :D

Ep. 4 was great 8D

Two: I don't really get you. What exactly do you expect to get out of this series? Because it appears you only care about the romance aspect, in which case why do you even bother? If you saw the original it wasn't exactly an endless string of romantic hijinks either. Yeah, Kawamori said this series would focus more on the school romance aspect, but he didn't say he was making a plot-what-plot romcom. Romance is nice and all, but we still have 22 episodes to go and plot and characterization to develop!

I doubt it. Here's a hint; all the characters (except Amata for some reason) are wearing that ring on her arm, nobody was ever wearing it before the episode 5 preview, and that's what the electricity is coming from........

ZAP. Like those dog collars that spray stuff on the dog's mouth or make a dog-whistle sound when the dog barks. Thus making the ban even more dumb, almost as if the staff didn't realize it was dumb enough already......

I'm somewhat surprised at the strong response to the "romance banned" deal sticking around -- Berlin was just shattered, give both sides some time to get to know the others and before they know it, the rule will already be gone. I don't think it'll really kill any fun character interaction.
Well, it's EXTREMELY disappointing, and even more dumb with the wall gone. But hopefully, the ban will be gone soon; those rings the characters are wearing on their arms are clearly connected to the ban, and I don't see them stuck wearing those dumb things forever, or there would have been a point made on them somewhere on the main page if they were more permanent. Not to mention watching every character get zapped by those rings every time they get in the mood with someone will be more than a little annoying after an episode or two at most......

Or it'll be pretty annoying with all the bug-zapping going around from those damn rings every time somebody starts blushing.

Granted I could be wrong about what those rings do, but I seriously doubt I am.
1. The rings were never there before
2. Every character (except Amata for some reason) is wearing them
2. This comes right after the wall is busted but the ban is highlighted by Fudou
3. The ring started doing a zap-attack warmup when Sazanka started blushing red like a tomato in the preview.

Yeah. I predict the next episode will be a bunch of guys and girls getting zapped every time they blush at each other.....since even Mikono is stuck wearing the ring, even the promising moment she and Amata are sharing at the end of the preview is in danger.

about Mikono. after watching the first 2 episodes again i can't help but feel maybe her element is something like dispelling barriers. Think of it; they've said multiple time Amata's element alone wouldn't be enough to destroy the stones. Mikono was on as well though which is another foreign element to them that hasn't been considered by them. she also seemed to release a sort self imposed seal Amata put on his element. remember the light her hand gave off before his element powered up more than usual. Plus it's not necessarily an element that would really show in a normal life like she was living before.

also does anyone else get a Sirius feel concerning Izumo?

I think you're expecting the romance to appear too early. I personally think this is better, as the characters will be less occupied with romance and more with other types of communication.

Well, it's only the 5th episode. Letting the romance blossom too early would be uncharacteristic of a romance anime.

Edit: Ah, I guess this was already mentioned.

Err, I'm not expecting anything to come too early; what I am doing is being concerned with what the totally annoying BS of having a ban on love, reinforced by bug-zapping arm collars no less, is going to do. People say Ikuto gush-nosebleeding every time a girl was "compromised" in front of him in Nagasarete Airantou was annoying; well, this thing with the armbands is going to be way, way worse. And that's putting aside the fact that it's just dumb to begin with.

I said myself that it's probably not going to last long (please Kawamori, PLEASE do a "Berlin Wall" and make this go away fast too), but that doesn't change how mind-boggingly ridiculous it is.

Just a thing to mention. Evol's Fudou is Fudou ZEN, not the original's Fudou GEN...

*Is an SRW Player*

...does anyone think what I'm thinking?

Do keep in mind that in the original series, DEVA's operations are world-wide. Given that the official site also shows off a city similar to San Francisco, it's likely that Neo-DEVA is also an international operation, and thus not limited to just one city or country.
