God, this was so stupid. XDDDD Oh, Aquarion. Only you, only you. XD

The high points of the episode as far as I'm concerned:
Spoiler for ep 7:


Btw it's nice seeing both Amata and Mikono coming out of their shell. Amata seems much more confident now than in the earlier episodes, and Mikono is more open than she used to be - instead of withdrawing and blaming herself like she would've done earlier, now she actually expressed her anger.

Yunoha made it to the ED, congrats to her! (I guess this means no pretty Mykage art in the ED... ). And there was a little extra in the OP as well.

Awesome episode was awesome... eagerly awaiting the subs so those of us who don't understand moon speak don't miss the nuances. Seven episodes in and we sink our first shipping boat?

Also, we lose the candles with the reveal of our cat-doll character in the ED,

Spoiler:


and she cements her position with Andy and Mix in the OP.

Spoiler:

Nice chunk of character growth though, it's nice to see more character added to Zessica and Amata and Mikono being further developed is a good thing.

Apparently there's another official picture of the same kind, though I have no clue which magazine it's featured in (I wish it were in Newtype as well, I couldn't not order this month's after that previous picture ww), nor I have sighted a higher res version around yet:
Spoiler for Picture:


Managed to catch a few more things after a rewatch - I'll join in what some of you have said, the character development is much appreciated.
Spoiler for Episode 7:

Spoiler for Cayenne and Shrade:

I don't see why not. Probably just a case of older than they look if it hasn't been stated that she actually is as young as she appears.

Maybe but she really looks like she's ten.

Though I think the tip of that boat might still be above sea-level.

i think sharde and cayenne are most definitely reika and sirius along with some silvia mixed in there for cayenne.

is there any reason amata has dropped any honorifics in regards to zessica? he certainly does't see her as just a guy, right?

Considering Andy's fascination with the Big Bang! we may end up with a one-sided ship... but I can't really see the Andy x Yunoha ship getting much traction considering how young she looks / acts. But hey, time will tell.

Shy, insecure girl with Andy's character type works just as well as with Mix's, so who knows... I'll agree that the tip of the ship's still there.

Wonder if Alicia sang that song in the Skies of Aquarion movie somewhere, or maybe it's a song she sung somewhere else? Jin does seem to be a fan of her. Honestly I wouldn't mind an updated version of either OP from the OS being in the show.

Macross F did it as well though, so who knows. Could just be the staff being clever and having fun.

Judging by how fast he went airborne when she teased him after the seat change... nope.

Finally got a chance to catch ep 7 (such a slowpoke). Man was this episode well done. Even the trope-heavy stuff was done in ways that felt novel and fresh (conforming to tropes but not limited by them)?

Spoiler for Episode details:


I could definitely see Andy becoming buddies with Yunoha
Spoiler:
. But seriously he's a friendly guy, I could see him taking her under his wing.

Zessica doesnt seem to be too found of andy. For some reason their dynamics reminds me of silvia and pierre. Pierre's lol line that went something like "she keeps saying no, but its probably a yes"
Its like all the characters are mixed of 2 or more souls from previous series.

Does anyone have screencaps of the ED with the various characters (God I love the art!)? I think some of the characters are featured in the Ed sequence if they play a significant role in the episode (sans MIX for some reason; I think she's appeared in every episode's ED sequence even though she hasn't been the focus of the episode.

Looks like a fun and awesome episode from what I've read here
With my shitty connection, can't afford to get both raw and sub so will have to wait longer for the sub :3


Btw, anyone have the full lyric of Kimi no Shinwa and/or Gekkou Symphonia? :3

I think if the important character get his or her focus episode, he/she will finally appear on the ED sequence. Amata, Mikono, Zessica, and Kagura are understandable they appear since the episode 3, but I wonder why Andy and Mix already have their art too, especially Mix...

I'm just going to call them Mirror Balls and Mirror Ball attack! Otherwise the translation is mind-numbing: Stationary (...is how I would translate 放置, a bit loosely I admit, but otherwise it really makes no sense trying to turn it directly into English because it'd read like Neglected ->) Laser Reflection Sky Balls. Mirror Balls suffices and conveys the point in two words, perhaps Mirror Sky Balls would be most descriptive.

Jin used Mirror Sky Ball attack!
It was super effective.

Yeah, all I have to add is that of all the times I've paused a show to get the dictionary out and look stuff up, this has to be amongst the most disappointing. I thought there might be more to what Suomi was saying b/c of how much planning Jin'd put with the simulations, etc., but nope! She's just narrating exactly what's happening on-screen (and flavorlessly, I might add). What a let-down.

Mirror balls is certainly a more stylish way to put it, but c'mon, in the end it wasn't really that effective, was it?

The ED animation first showed itself in ep3... and this was the order of the characters, and what was swapped in.

Amata > Mikono > Hill w/ Crosses (Swapped to Cayenne) > Piano (Swapped to Shrade) > Mix > Andy > Book (possibly NOT a placeholder as it's animated) > Zessica > Candles (Swapped to Yunoha) > Alicia > Kagura

Spoilered for image spam... x10 actually >_<;; I'm guessing we're done with new characters as there aren't really any placeholders left (other than the animated book). Pity, Sazanka could look snazzy in that art style.
