EVA characters in Xenosaga clothes/vehicles/mecha = No complaints here!

I didn't mind the nipples so much, but her boobs seems to have about 2x gravity, sloshing around like over-filled water balloons.

I'm definitely looking forward to more.

Something else thats a little odd I noticed -- where exactly do they fit everything in that mobile carrier of theirs? That cybot Jango is fairly large, and from the OP we see that a considerable amount of the carrier is just for opening up to launch Jango.

But then you see the inside and theres the kitchen/eating area, the bathroom, a bedroom area obviously, probably some type of TV room, Amy's control center for Jango, and obviously there needs to be room for the engine to drive that thing and the cockpit could you say.

Jango must be stored in HammerSpace ^_^;;

Heh, maybe thier kitchen and stuff folds up on that flap

It's probably more likely just under the launch for Jango. Given that there is no real way to determine scale from the intro shot it's rather inconclusive. We should probably just go with HammerSpace for now.

GONZO is known for being one of the more expensive anime makers as far as DVDs go. They are almost all 2eps per disc @ 6000-6200yen usually. Most R2 DVDs will be 2-3eps per disc and run you 4200-5200yen each. Some shows like childrens anime are even like 4 eps for 3800-4200yen. (Jungle Guu and Full moon come to mind)

my thoughts and the first half of ep 1:

seems dumn but fun. The male lead reminds me of Akito Tenkawa from Nadesico, less likable. The whole feel of the show (espcailly the music and the opening) reminded me of Gad Gaurd (which makes sense, since both are directed by the same guy IIRC)

Dumb? Maybe...no, i would rather say easy-going.
On the other hand, it was somewhat of a sure thing that this show wouldn't be another GitS-SAC^^

Uh.. actually it is because I translated the synopsis & character data from the main official site.

If you can read Japanese, you can go to http://www.baku-ten.com or you can read my translation at Anime-Source ( http://www.anime-source.com/banzai/m...content&id=781 )

lol, never paid attention to Kyohei's character profile, guess that fact in itself speaks something about his significance... or insignificance in the show

Just saw episode 2 and i have to say: great Jango action, great Jo action, great...everything^^

Really, it's such a pleasure to see them girls working their cute asses off and it's an even bigger pleasure to see that whimpy Kyohei constantly running for his life there^^
If he wouldn't have cooked such a nice meal at the end, the girls reaction would've been something like: "Oh, you're going?..didn't even notice you were there in the first place..no wait, you actually caused us some major fuss out there..be gone insignificant worm!"
Nahh, that would be a bit too much i guess, they are all good girls..still..they can always use him as live bait or meat shield out there..or simply to carry more of them "food cans" around^^

well, actually Kyohei did a pretty good job of piling up those "food cans"

I like how he hides his head between his legs during the cybot attacks, lol

Yeah, that was priceless!^^

Do you think that he'll actually be anything more than a sidekick? Maybe he'll develop some badass superpowers that all deal with "martial cooking" or something....
Nahh, he'll always be carrying the food cans....the poor sod...hey wait a second..he ain't poor! he get's to live with all those cuties!!! Luck is always with the dumb...*sigh*

Unfortunately... it doesn't seem like he will live with the girls. Although usually implied in the "harem aspect" of animes in general, no one in this show said anything about a "live-in" chef. Which adds to the sheer patheticism of this guy...

yea, I guess he'll just get abducted when the girls want something nice to eat, then get involved in some unfortunate incidents, carrying around food cans, and at last finish preparing the meal and run the hell out of the mobile carrier only to get abducted again later...

I think he doesn't show up even once in the OP and ED and he's supposed to be the "male lead"... even those gangsters has some screen time in the OP...

However one thing he's better than Akito Tenkawa is the variety of food he can cook... at least he can cook more than just Ramen... one of the fun things could be guessing what food he cooks for the girls in each episode

Well, he wants to become a patissier and he does seem to be quite talented..which means that he already has the girl with a sweet tooth on his side..this seems to be Amy..she likes him because he "smells like cake" and he is pathic and whiny. She seems to be a rather sly character herself..so i think he'll have a hard time, even during times when he's not abducted by some random foe.
All the other girls seem to tolerate him at best or try not to notice at all.

Pity and hunger seem to be the only pros that work for him right now^^

The thing is..i don't even want him to get rid of his pathetic sidekick role....he's a poor chicken that needs to be saved by the girls, it's as simply as that^^

how anyone survived the huge explosions is a big mystery to everyone. I thought they overdid it a bit with the explosions

The ecchiness-theme seems to be conjoined with most of the series that have come out in this spring. One more wouldn't make any much difference I suppose. So he is a male bimbo that needs to be saved by the "Charlie's angel" often? Plus he is a cook? It appears to me a promise of a good story line and hints of a one lucky fellow who will be tasting lots of other things beside the salt, mostly in many undignified situation. My fingers are crossed for a chef that will develop into a iron-chef who eventually becomes the main character and lives happily ever after with the "Charlie's angel".

Off to download the first episode.
