Knowing Gonzo i guess there will be more coming for the poor cook, unless they really want to invert the roles for once (the guy cooking and the girls shooting), it wouldn't be that bad after all.

anyway, about "speedsubbers" or the like, if you expect any minimum degree of quality pay for it, otherwise if you want things for free you get them as they come.
Personally i find quite amazing that people like Lunar and others spend a considerable slice of their free time (if not all of it) offering a SERVICE to other fans without asking anything back.
And their job, even if cannot be considered incredibly high quality, is for sure more than decent, in case of Lunar i find even the style (language registry used, choice of words and limitation of slang) to be pretty good. I personally know many professionals that do it for money and do a much worse job and slower too.
So respect people that offer you a service, and if you want a better/different one, learn japanese, download your raw and do it yourself.
That's all.

I agree with Harlock re: Kyouhei - there has to be something more coming from him. My guess is we'll seem him do something at some point that earns Jo's repsect. Whether he wants to or not.

That said, I actually quite enjoy how they are leaving him a bit of a side character at this point. He's not somebody who could naturally fit in with that gang of girls and it shows.

Hi has anyone noticed the similarities between BT and EVA??

Rei Ayanami = Joe
Asuka Langley-soryu = Meg
The Chef Guy = Shinji

What do y'all think?

My thoughts have pretty much all been expressed. It seems like Meg and the cook seem to have no practical use, other than to amuse us (so far anyway). I don't even understand why Jo made the cook come with her in the first ep.

I been DLing the AonE version, but I might check out the lunar one. Some of the sentences just didn't make sense in the AonE version. I really appreciate fan sub groups, i don't mind if mistakes are made, just as long as i get the general plot down. I do like to choose the highest quality sub if there are choices though.

Anger. She held him responsible for Jo's abduction and wants him to pay back some of the emotional baggage incurred. She's not really a calm person is she

You are answering all my ignorant questions today. :P

Was it just me, or did ep3 contain some of those "lesbian overtones" mentioned earlier? More importantly, which one will the cook fall in love with?!

ep4 is great! Biohazard!

Also noticed that the surname of the "male lead" is actually "standpoint-less", so his full name is "standpoint-less Kyouhei"

And is it just me or the preview to episode 5 looks like Maria-sama ga Miteru?

While there is some slight similarities in the character design (and I do mean slight), there isn't even the slightest similarity in their personality.

I don't understand why people compare the character designs of Jo and Ayanami. There are dozens of other anime characters that's leagues more similar to Ayanami design than Jo.

Besides they all have totally different persoanlities... you can say they are almost at two extremes... especially Jo and Meg vs. Rei and Asuka.

It is just a cheap joke that people are having fun with.

Anyway I know ep 4 hasn't been subbed yet so...

Episode 4 was pretty interesting. Lots of Meg fan service too. Bloody gore and bouncy chests. What can I say, its a fun diversion

Looks like a lot more of Meg coming up in episode 5 too. I really hope that with all this attention on her character that she starts to mature or show some signs of changing. The helpless bimbo, saved by Jo routine is going to get old fast. At least it looks like with Episode 5, Gonzo are going to keep things ummm...interesting to say the least.

I do want to see Kyouhei developed further as hopefully he gets to interact a bit more than just getting picked up by Sei to go cook then kicked out after he's done. I mean, I know thats his job but still...

And...as usual...I am left wanting a more involved role for Sei than they give us. Hopefully there is an episode or arc down the road with her playing a main role.

I'm definitely sure there'll be one for her and it might even be the main arc. Cause if you read the official site's public data, she's the daughter of the head honcho of White Orchid, the organisation giving these girls the assignments. She has developed split loyalties and is suffering. When they put up descriptions like that, you should know something on that will come up in the series.

So can sei fight? In the opening all she does is drive. They even show meg shooting a gun. Sei must have some combat skills. I'm getting annoyed by meg already. She'll soon be up there with my list of useless annoying characters with sakura from naruto being numero uno.

I guess if she's the daughter of the boss of the crime syndicate Bai-Lan, she should be able to fight... no?

Oh man, plz dun turn this series into another Love Hina-type anime
Btw, this show really resembles NGE with all the similiar looking characters between Baku Ten and NGE; also with all the mech battles except the mech in Baku Ten more looks like the mech from Front Mission game.

Is it just me or does it seem like so far each story arc is self-contained in 2 episodes... I wonder if they are gonna keep that going on for the entire run of the series...
