Well I just watched the episode, I was kind of hoping Pinkie would be gone, but oh well. Not much else worth mentioning aside from telling Violet and Blue apart from each other is still difficult, although not as hard as the past two episodes. I am glad this did not end up being some typical fan service episode.

I like Tamaki. Ever since the first episode, she's come across to me as "What would happen if Hibari became a robot pilot?"

Well if this is the low point in this I would be surprised it can only get better

Finally they give us some revelation about why these children are picked to implement the JURIA system. But still, this episode is rather gloomy what with the main characters being depressed and in overall bad mood (which is understandable considering their situation). But the darker part creeped up when it’s revealed that their childhood memories are erased completely and that they’re treated as just some tools. That’s way worse than how we treat common soldiers imo (plus, they’re still kids). Adding insult to injury is that the show seem to imply that they’re ripped off their rights to decide their own future (if what Kei’s saying is to be believed). At least the child-pilots in Evangelion still have their rights to quit even when humanity is in the brink of extinction .

Now I’d like to know how they ended up in the academy. Is it forced-recruitment, or something else?

Oh, and if they do kill one member (Tamaki) next episode, it'll be a nice surprise and add more intensity to the story.

Whelp. That ending. Did Majestic Prince just when all Madoka Magica on the audience, in the third episode?

This show. After the rather epic first episode, I feel like I'm getting nothing when I'm watching it. I don't feel like it's bad or good, or even 'meh'. I'm just not sure what to make of it.

That said episode 3 was rather dull.

If it's not worth watching in 3 episodes I'am not going to waste another 4 hours of my life hoping it's going to get better.

*Shrugs* Like I said I'm not sure how I feel about this show.
Different people have different tastes.
And I admitted on the Valvrave threads myself, I have no idea why I like that show, despite it's inherent flaws.

You could always put in on hold for a while, do other stuff, and then watch a batch of episodes all at once many weeks later. I've seen plenty of anime that had rough first halves but managed to become entertaining otherwise.

Three episodes in and I'm still on the fence with GKMJ. I really want to like this show but it hasn't truly grabbed me yet. Kugimiya's talk with Hitachi was poignant but the characters still feel paper thin (so much so that it's hard for me to even care if Tamaki dies or not). I don't expect GKMJ to explore the "Born-Solider" concept in the same depth that Suisei no Gargantia plans to, nor do I expect it to explore the Orwellian nature of it in the same way as the likes of Psycho-Pass or Shin Sekai Yori, but I'd still like it to have some sort of plot. Exploring the "harsh nature of war" as a theme only goes so far without genuine relatable context ("We still don't know why the enemy is attacking us") and I was hoping the chemistry between the main five would make up for that but the comedy is honestly just not that funny any more.

Well at least the actions scenes are still nice to look at. Gotta like the epic operatic music too.

well at least people from valvrave thread will answer, try to argue/explain if something unjustified critiques comes there

not chasing them out or even banned them from posting in the thread because it will sully the "holy ground/fanbase club/no critique thread"

you just make the show looks bad by doing that. ignoring them is definitely far better solution

Thanks for the laugh. People over there seems to answer every critique over there with "the show is not taking itself seriously"

you know something about people can only see what they want to see
but, for the sake of argument, assuming it is true, you know what is more laughable than that?

A: I don't like...
B: get lost you kiddo and don't come back!

:rofl:

They problem with "I don't like" is
episode one:
It's baaad really bad why, where, what...etc

episode two:
same as eps1

episode three:
same as episode one

.....
.........
.............
Final episode:
same runt as episode one...

(Or find new think to be angry about...)

If you don't like this genre/anime than why are you watching it from first to last episode?
There is a lot of people like that...
