Warning,this episode contains massive amounts of Madoka awesomeness.

I was going to list all the awesome madoka moments I would end up listing everything that happened in the episode.

What's weird is that even if she's a female protagonist I get GAR and BRO vibes from her.

Anyway glad to see Lan's vox system was activated thanks to the power of yuri love friendship.
Next up is Muginami.

Though with that legend we might be in for quite a lot of drama later on.

Madoka definitely carries the show. I have to say that this is the first time in years that I've been swept along by the sheer infectious vibe of a voice actress. Massive kudos to Kaori Ishihara.

Cliched, templated or not, the episode had me grinning from beginning to end. It's fast-paced where it needs to be, kooky when it's fun to be, and always self-deprecating whenever it veers close to being serious. Loved the Jersey anthem, especially. Rinne is turning out by far the best of the three mecha shows this season where I am concerned.

Hmm, it's probably just me, but I can't think of much to say about this episode.

It was good. I like the looks of all the Mech suits being used including the newest one which Lan is now able to use. I guess she couldn't use it before because she was afraid of it or something? Afraid of it's legend

At the end, the blonde pilot who was captured in the first episode (Array) says something about an old tail:

"It's an old tail, from Ancient Times. The Giant Green Demon will rip the heavens...The Giant Blue Demon will devour the stars...The Giant Orange Demon will spew out darkness...Through countless sacrifices, they will rule the land. Feeding off a tainted heart, they awaken from within the mind. And the demons shall rise. Do not let them loose. Do not let them, ever".

Giant Green Demon = Madoka's green Vox Midori
Giant Blue Demon = Lan's blue Vox Orca
Giant Orange Demon = ???

This may be the reason why Lan was scared of activating her Vox mech, because of this tail. If so, then what secrets are hiding within these mech suits that only certain people can pilot? Why did the other pilots Izo and Kirius want Madoka to go to their planet? Perhaps they know a way to stop this tail from coming true?

This episode raised a lot of questions. It had some good action however.

Counterintuitive, that's what makes good episodes (and manga chapters). When the experience is more important then some philosophical spoon feeding you got a good formula.

Greatly enjoying this series so far. Can't say I'm bothered by the 'no romance' subplots thing. Give me honest and natural character interactions and that's all the fodder I need to keep me interested.

Spoiler for ep. 3:


Anyway, looking forward to Muginami next episode. I suspect she's not as airheaded as she seems if the preview, and how she got away from Madoka last episode, are anything to go by.

Don't have much positive things to say about this episode (or the show in general). While not exactly on autopilot, the pacing and story is pretty cheesy. I know a lot of people like the cheerfulness, but I find it soulless. The song Madoka sang also disagreed with me.

the best-received series of the season,
I think it could deserve its own subforum (seriously: if not this one, what else?)

ep 03: maybe a not-really-flashy episode, but - here and there - plenty of nice details and story buildup.

Madoka is again the center the stage, and she did pretty well (it's "some lines and colour" and not an actress - but shows a strong individuality and consistency - this tells a lot about how well written, directed and voiced the characters are)

probably Madoka will yield a bit to the other young "comrade" ladies in the following episodes, and that's possible because Lan is a bit recessive but really nice to follow, and Muginami has been hinted to be quite a cunning, manipulative and - well, a bit troubled - character, and thus very versatile, as a tool to weave a story.

Oh great now everybody at school knows she's the pilot of that robot.

The other pilot can't put head or tails about Earthers as his thinking is too provincial.

LOL at Madoka trying a bare handed block twice. Only she can't do it but Lan can once she gets out out of hang ups.

Really where the heck did Lan pic up Woof as a response.

Madoka is bringing in the Gar while her interaction with Lan is so Moe. I guess that's cute girls doing cute things while piloting robots.

I loved episode 3; it just felt like it hit all of the correct notes.

Spoiler for Episode 3:

Looking forward to Muginami in the next episode. She came across as an airhead, but I have a feeling that was all an act.

Likely it is something that depends on the user/pilot.

If say persons like the boys controlled the Vox then yes it could be a bringer of destruction.

But with pure maidens like Madoka it would be a power for good.

Thing is Kirius and Array were expecting to get killed right there. They haven't recognized the Vox's pilots lack killing intent.

Array thinks his buddy was downed underwater when in fact he was German supplexed and lost consciousness ending up a prisoner of Earth.

Nice to see you've caught up to the Madoka and Lan goodness

Yes, fighting off the other guy and at the same time making sure that she's on empty ground, that was pretty good. Or batting away that vending machine like a baseball.

The Vox liked the Yuri love, that's why it activated

About the guy that was fighting Madoka, he must've thought that Madoka was pretty damn stupid.
"I'm stomping around all over your town while fighting you, not giving a damn about the buildings I destroy, people that might get in the way or vending machines etc. sent flying that might hit people, but I mean you no harm." Yeah right XD

That's as I see it, too. The Vox are neither good nor evil, they'll become what their pilot makes out of them. In the hands of the girls, they're used to protect the city and its citizens.
In the hands of the boys, it could turn out quite different.

You two did a fine job ruining my life even more heck, I see some of you calling Madoka-chan the "anti-shinji", I say to hell with that whiner baby. I'm just glad Madoka didn't pass out after her first mission, I find it so hilarious when that happens *cough*Aquarion*cough*.

AAAAAND...... anytime the female pilots wear zettai ryouiki suits to battle is a plus in my book. And that book of mine be a very ecchi book, I tells ya

But seriously..... the way Madoka gets onto that cockpit.... bends over..... grasps the handle and..... ah, why didn't they install a camera at the rear of this cockpit!?!? I need to see a butt shot now......
You know, the easiest way to show appreciation is post all your ava works here. Rather than giving these two gentlemen imaginary medals. >_<'

LOLZ to this episode. I wonder if the ship-base would do a Camp Big Falcon and just dock there, since their best pilot lives there.

Offtopic:
BTW, what do we call you now? BouncyBreastron?

God I love this show, it really is just wow!

I'm a massive fan of Bakemonogatari even more so than Madoka and I think Nisemonogatari is even better than Bakemonogatari but then I think this is just oh so more lovable than Nisemonogatari.

Usually a series will have that initial flare to it but end up losing some of that fire as it goes on or the fire will slowly build as the series goes on but this was ablaze from the get go and has only grown stronger.
I just love the feelings and vibes I get from this series, can't even remember last time a anime got me soooooo riled up!


I believe some have said before that Lan is their favorite character and going by character design I'd say she is my favorite in that regard but Madoka rules this series, theres no doubt about that.
And I'd say it's probably mostly down to Ishihara Kaori, she's amazing!
Loved her singing the song in ep 3 and she's just been outstanding through out so far.
I can see Ishihara Kaori going places after this.
But then the VA has been pretty damn good across the board.
I find that the bigger the cast the better the fits of the VA to their roles compared to series with relatively small casts, which end up with some roles not fitting so well.

Still stand by this being the anime of the season for me.
Can't express enough how much I'm loving it!

Nice to see that both Kaori Ishihara and Yui Ogura are moving up in the world. Though their debut wasn't that long ago. Still, I never would've pegged the singers of the kiss x sis ED to become leading ladies.
