he's way better than Rin, and more decisive than Rin, Takayuki, and especially Shinji Ikari...

Let's not even mention Shinji who only made one decision -- to die rather than decide anything -- and he couldn't even stick to that. That's a world record of indecision.

I'm glad the Girlfriend of Steel 2nd Manga series rectified him...


Anyway, I really hope that they make a second season to finish off the novels in the anime, but this chaotic episode could be seen as the precursor to the storm before the clearing...

Meh, I don't know what's the fuss about Yuuji being a jerk and all...

Yuuji's definitely not as bad as Takayuki or a lot of others, but he's starting to look like a disciple of the Masaki Tenchi school, which kind of annoys me. A lot of male leads in anime seem to have a philosophy along the lines of "I don't want to hurt anyone, so if a girl likes me I'll just string her along forever instead." It's misleading to label that "nice guy" syndrome, because being a nice guy doesn't mean you never hurt anyone--sometimes it's better to hurt someone short term by making things clear, as opposed to just stringing them along when you know (or damn well should know) they like you but you don't feel the same way. And there's no way Yuuji shouldn't know Kazumi likes him (kokuhaku or no) after the bentou-a-day program, unless he has an IQ in single digits.

I'd call what Yuuji's doing more spinelessness (if he knows he doesn't want to go out with Kazumi) or indecisiveness (if he really can't choose between Kazumi and Shana), but what he's doing is causing both girls pain at the moment. I like Yuuji's character overall and given all he's gone through the guy deserves some slack, but I've got a bad feeling they're going stretch the love triangle thing out much longer than I'd like to see it.

Hmm...I don't know if I'm going to get bashed for this, but I don't think Yuuji really knows that Shana likes him a lot. He does know, however, that Kazumi feels that way, and what Ike said might have influenced his actions of chasing after Kazumi first a little.

Besides, we don't know exactly how he feels about either Shana or Kazumi...yet. For all we know, he might be chasing after her as a concerned friend instead, although that still doesn't seem to take the label of spinlessness off him, it seems...

Before I give my review for episode eighteen, I returned with seventeen to made remark about some general doubts.

Spoiler:


As for Khamsin and Behemoth, they behave calm toward Kazumi explaining straightforwardly about the torches and guze, unlike other flames hazes behavior.
The scars on Khamsin's face quite indicate that he has endured several trauma against particular Tomogara in the past.

Exactly what is the job of Tuner Flame Haze like him?
Spoiler:


The Professor's plan.
Spoiler:


Anyways the plot is heading toward what is the Reigi Maigo, and unexpected surprises will be revealed along the way.

The new opening did not make an outstanding first impression, fortunately, I'm becoming so much very used to it listening over and over. Have to wait for the CD single to be released.
It's definite KOTOKO, but the song has not traditional flair of KOTOKO within the music

Thanks zalas and Plant42 for that information. I guess that makes things a lot clearer now but it was still stupid to cut it out just to save it for that scene at the end of 18.

Not a bad episode at all.. it needed a least a scene with Wihelmina though~! ;_;

I'm starting to like this bad scientist.. he seems like the typical cool badguy, though when i started to like Friagne.. look what happened to him.

Well seriously, I would chase after kazumi if I was yuji. So I support his actions. Rather I see shana being too emotional. Hope she dont mess it.

Shana: Oops I lost my grip

*Sees a headless kazumi*

Shana: Well, you are the one who cause me to lose my concentration, so you deserves it.

*Spits on her corpse and moves to Yuji*

Anyway, ep 18 was a great ep where the drama is only beginning...

Spoiler:
I would say that Shana is equally to blame. She just needs to admit to herself that she loves him, and then act on it. If she had given him a kiss instead of melon bread he would probably turned down Kazumi's invitation. If she had confessed to him then he would have definitely turned down Kazumi's invitation.
