Stella seems like more of a flirt than actually a "Oh my gawd I LUVS him, I want his babies" mode like the main 3 girls. I do however think she finds Yuuya attractive and would mess around with him if he ever brought up the notion.

To elaborate further on grevierr's answer, Yui is serving as the Project Manager for the XFJ project. Her job is to manage the project. She isn't supposed to be flying herself: that's what Argos Flight - specifically Yuuya and Tarisa - are for. Her job is to ensure that the project is on track: she is not supposed to be flying or getting into combat. Flight time detracts from the time that she's supposed to be running around getting data, managing the herd of cats that are scientists and engineers, and keeping everyone on-track.

Regards silver hair, I'd just like to note that while it's rare for Japanese people, it's not uncommon for Chinese people to have silver hair - in fact, I have silver hair, as does my mother and a significant portion of her family, and a helluva lotta members of my class at school. That said, what we would call silver hair is actually an optical illusion from the mixing of white and gray hairs.

And yes, we do have people who somehow start turning white when puberty hits, which is what happened to me, my mom and my younger brother. If not for hair dye, my mom's hair would be completely white. My hair is mostly white.

I think they are saying that Japanese is an inferior race when it comes to appeal. They only have blue and brownish hair.

Americans can have Purple, Blonde, Pink, Green, Gray, Velvet, etc etc etc.

No seriously............................

Wait, wtf? I know a bunch of Chinese people and not one of them has silver hair if they aren't at least 45. If anything Chinese people have red hair, you can see it in the sun.

*shrugs* I'm part Chinese and my hair has been turning white ever since I was 12. Must be something in the South East Asian water.

Tama is one of those 1 to 10000 genetic mutations. In same manner that you have golden and purple eyes.


More importantly, the Type-77 longsword isn't exclusive to UFC; it has been copied by both Soviet Union and Warsaw Pact at large. Also, Cifei's TSF is technically J-10X, a development version of regular J-10, which is based on F-16. Yes, that's China with American tech. Her Reinforced suit is American as well, for that matter.

Just you know, steering this away from whole hair thing.

I wonder why a Chinese "United Front" still exists as opposed to just the ROC. You'd think Taiwan would've been content to let the PRC go down with the BETA.

I'm sure someone (this being Warsaw Pact, or maybe Soviets themselves) gave the UFC the necessary pull to still be around. It would match up time-wise, because Soviets didn't stop being a major power until late 70s - before then they'd still could very well tell the U.N to keep it around and separate from ROC.

And China's a big country...I don't believe they were entirely exterminated (at least *some* refugees had to flee). I also bet that some of those "disputed" islands were taken into U.N administration and made into temporary UFC camps.

...Besides, this way the UFC would be a convenient cannon fodder whenever you need something cleared out in Asia, which is probably why both Soviets and USA are supplying them. It's not evil if its for survival of the species.

Well you could ask the same with Russia I suppose, and why the USSR still exists.

Until somebody else machine guns the heads off of a room full of Beta while finding time to do an action roll and drive a jeep around Yui will still remain my favorite of this series many action girls. There's a reason I usually refer to her as Action Yui in discussions about the series elsewhere.

Number one huh? I agree, but for me, it's also gotta be like this:

1. Yui
2. Cryska
3. Cui
4. Inia
5. Stella

My intention in that was to simply define the girls in one small phrase.
Yui is cute, is my number one, but i know she's also an action girl. She can trust dat katana at me anytime.

@Stella: i don't know what to say about her?
Blond with boobs? but she's smart (she can se Yuuya and Yui's behaviour near eachother clearly... but who cant?) Hot onee-sama?

@Kaioshin Sama, greensoulreaper

1> Yui
2> Cryska
3> Stella
4> Cui
5> Inia (murderous cutie)
6> Tarisa (she grew on me)

The last three are VERY close.
This show provides alot of excelent Waifu material..

Also i agree at that Yui pic fitting the text.

Well this was my train of logic: Any Chinese fleeing the PRC would probably have been so disorganized and disillusioned that they would just join the still-intact ROC.

Well here's a theory I came up with: The PRC was the first country to have to deal with the BETA on earth, and it seems they spent a couple decades fighting them until most of the mainland finally fell (how the PLA managed to pull this off with a mostly infantry force, I'm not sure lol). And this this time, they could've easily blackmailed or outright invaded nearby countries to make space for their own refugees, especially as they saw the situation worsen. China has nukes after all and if they can't use them against the BETA, well they still work on fellow humans. Perhaps they were able to "convince" the ROC to form a united front...

By the same principle, Russia might've been able to "convince" America to give them Alaska.

That's one thing anime hasn't failed me in and that is making American women gorified sex symbols.

I'm gonna with:
1. Cryska (she was all dere in this episode)
2. Yui (still neck and neck, but Cryska wins this week)
3. Stella (got a feeling she can be a tease)
4. Sharon (so I like them homegrown)
5. Cui (her last line won me over)
I think covered every major continent.
