One question about the Viz's streaming: How do you feel about them subbing Madoka's signature "Maru" as "Perfect?" I'm assuming they are going for an equivalent to the meaning she is using, which is "correct."

^Actually I kinda assumed her "Maru" as something like "Victory!" or "Alright!" or "Success!" anything that exclaimes a success.

I found the second to be really enjoyable, and I look forward to seeing Lan pilot her robot. I think Lan might be my favorite out of the trio shown in the OP; her hairstyle reminds me of Kaine from Nier, and I loved Kaine’s character design so yeah. xD
Uh oh, I hope the alien boys wont join to Madoka's team and become a love interest for the girls

While i'm happy there isn't going to be any guy x girl its not all welcomed news. Things seemed like they might be heading in a Madoka x Lan direction what a pairing they would have made.

A friend clarified that issue to me with this:

No, no, no... after the 2ch calmed down, the Yuri fans are actually hopeful - now that Tatsuo Satoh made clear that romance is excluded in the two anime he directed this season (Chief Director for Rinne no Lagrange, Director for Moretsu Space Pirate), it actually means yuri is more likely rather than the other way round, because in anime yuri is rarely shown explicitly as such (what happens in Nanoha, Madoka or even "Maria-sama miteiru" is depicted as deep friendship and bonding, but is interpreted by many from yuri angle anyway). Getting rid of the possibility of the three guy "villains" of taking the three female protagonists as love interests in Rinne means the bonding between the three girls will get more focus and make it easier for yuri fans to fantasize about yuri (because no guy is involved now). In fact, some suspected the discussion of why there are 3 guys on the other side that seems to conveniently match the 3 girls on Earth's side may have prompted Satoh to quench any speculation about love and romance will become the main theme in the coming episodes. Needless to say, I am quite hopeful too (being a yuri fan myself) :-)

Well fingers crossed. I was thinking "old fashioned" in the translated tweet could have been synonymous with unconventional in this case.

Seriously the signals having been flashing all through out the first two eps especially from Lan. When you factor in that there is literally one guy for each of the girls, bishounen no less, it would just make any possible relationship between Madoka and Lan the more sweeter. Personally what would have been the icing on the cake was if Madoka wasn't at an all girls school.

Normally i'm not one to care so much about the romantic elements of an anime but Lan x Madoka rubbed me the right way and the set up seems perfect for it. If nothing happens in S1 then hopefully S2.

Excellent argument there. Yeah, as a big yuri fan myself, I'm more hopeful given what Tatsuo Satoh made clear there.

True, while this might mean Madoka X Lan won't be on screen cannon, at least we won't have to worry about random guy X girl.

That that line of reasoning really makes me hopeful.

First I'm extremely happy that one thing I worried most about this series, it that they would jam the APB's with Madoka, Lan, and Muginami, will not happen. While I am disappointed that the show may not explicitly go to cannon Madoka X Lan, I'm hopeful that at the very least we will get something on the levels of the relationship between Nanoha/Fate. I also hope that like ImagineThat, that maybe we will get unconventional love in this story.

i think we are giving too much importance to a tweet, he answered to someone, it's like hearing two guys talking in the middle of the conversation. most importantly he is the dirctor, he isn't the writer of the series...

A show that tries to simultaneously appeal to yuri fans and yaoi fans would be kind of mind-blowing, actually. I can just imagine the fanart wars.

I am completely fine with that couse of events because: Yaoi doesn't bother me. It will help eliminate the threat of them pairing up the guys with Madoka, Lan, and Muginami and there by protecting the Yuri.

That would actualy be a great thing if Yuri and Yaoi fandoms could join forces to get better series for both.

Also why would there be fan art wars? Wouldn't it be in the best interest of the Yuri and Yaoi fandoms to support each other against the hetero pairings.

The director generaly can guide the writer in a direction he wants the writer to go.
For exemple in Ano Hana director Nagai had Okada do rewrites because he wasn't satisfied with early versions of the script.

So if he doesn't really want romance I guess he told the writing staff to not put any.

edit:

I'm surprised nobody has brought up the preview at the end of episode 1

"What do you want to go eat Lan?"
"I want a bento prepared by a loving wife"
"I'm not a loving wife"
"you're not?"
"I don't think....actualy,absolutely not"

So I think there'll be Yuri but like djmaca said Madoka will be clueless about it.

Well, by fan art wars, I just meant that you'd see massive amounts of yuri and yaoi fan-art resulting from it, and it would be interesting to see which type of the two would end up dominating. I'm not saying that the two sides would necessarily try to "outdo" one another. It would just seem like a competition based on how much artwork both sides would put out.

It was pretty stupid to put that much pressure on her right at the beginning. It caused trouble for her, beginning to soubt herself, and without her cousin's pep talk, she would've been in serious trouble.

Aww Lan, you big softy However, I guess something happened to Lan since she was stopped by that guy and he mentioned that she may not be able to accept the Vox in her current state.
You could clearly see how Lan was surprised at how easily Madoka could pilot her Vox mech. It seems she still has problems there, but Madoka can probably help her there.

Good overall, we learned a bit more about Madoka.
Lan will probably overcome her reservations to get out there with her Vox and help Madoka.

No, that's not it at all. He didn't care about her call and continued to approach her all the time. He just didn't attack her because there was no point, seeing that her mech was powered down. He talked with that other guy beforehand that they want to seize the Vox mechs for themselves, so for that it's best if they only attack (and possibly damage) the Vox mech as little as possible.

Yes, the tightsuits are very well designed indeed

No problem with any Yaoi either, as it makes the road clear for the Yuri!
