Absolutely lovely episode. I loved the ending though: mission over? back to clinging to Minamoto, and being pissed that Hyoubu got away AGAIN. I think it's like... the 20th time. I can understand the tears, this time they ALMOST had him.

I think it's just as well, as the main ZKC has an overwhelmingly female cast, at least among the teens -- Pandra has a single teenaged Esper, while Babel has two -- everyone else is a girl. So yeah, bring on the pretty boys!
Poor, poor Akira.

Well, they got Hirano to do a couple of throwaway lines for the episode, so I don't think VA availability was a component in making this a spinoff. The Children will continute to be relevant, it seems.

That said, the writing is pretty good. I expected a lot of thing, but so far, it turns out to be very interesting and a well-written thing that is an absolute treat for the series' fans (except for Manglobe character designs, these can be polarizing).

A bit of Yugiri, a bit of BABEL, and a birthday party. Nice episode. I got a small chuckle out of the "How to Be An Emperor for Beginners" book. Such a practical gift. And that animation for the hellish carnival Yugiri summoned was pretty freaky. Having Kaoru, Aoi and Shiho make another cameo does suggest they might have parts to play in later episodes. They wouldn't put Kaoru in the OP for nothing. The scene with Minamoto and Andy negotiating was also pretty nice - keep 'em going with the mind games, Fujiko. The spinoff's tone looks to be getting a little closer to the main series as it moves along.

I was always wondering how will Kyousuke die....this episode answered it for me~....in the manga even tho he chnged the future, Kaoru would still be the Queen....without kyousuke!!
So basically this is the biggest spoiler it seems!

It's quite strange, personally, to be seeing Unlimited tackle all these Hyoubu character hints/developments that were planted way wayyy back in the Elementary arc... and then practically vanished during the Middle School arc.

By the way... they are in Japan, have Kugirie as a VA and Mio didn't show up for the birthday party? The heck!?

Could be sooner, Kaoru was flying backwards through some kind of explosion in the preview for the next episode.

Wonder how much little time Kyousuke has left. Yugiri was so cute this ep, though her powers seem to pretty crazy. Good thing Andy was there to calm her down.

So, while everyone was so focused on Yugiri and Andy and the birthday party, something was overlooked. There was a very special cameo appearance in today's episode.

We haven't seen Mio in any art, have we? Same with any of the Black Phantom characters. Seems like they're trying to keep the roster a little constrained.

But it's nice to know they've follow what is, apparently, a popular trend from the first series: lolicon jokes at the expense of the male leads. Though it actually works from a story telling stand point to do it that way. While they may be cheap jokes, they also allow them to remove that aspect of tension from the series, so it never really gets squicky.

I just came to see if anyone had mentioned this yet. It's pretty cool. E-fame ftw!

Calling the rest of the series now:

1) Hyoubu is predicted to die because his powers are unhealthy for him in unlimited mode. However, Andy hasn't been accounted for in any predictions (at least BABEL seemed to think he came out of nowhere) because of his cancelling ability.
2) Hyoubu knows that Andy is a spy. Gradually PANDRA wins him over.
3) Andy's cancelling ability is able to save Hyoubu by keeping his fatal overload in check. This involves him and Hyoubu no longer using artificial limiters because ~THE UNLIMITED~
4) ???
5) Yugiri has two daddies.

So the Cinema Snob gets a line (it was actually voiced), while being right next to Lupin. It's pretty funny, for all of those that gets the references.

Odds are it was whoever was animating that scene that's a fan. Which, given how it's barely on screen for a second, it's not surprising the editors wouldn't pick up the references. For as popular as Doug and the AVG are, they're still pretty niche, especially for a Japanese editor.
