Whoa, aren't you killing off Misa (Akiho's sister) a bit too fast?
Nobody said that she died and...

Sorry; dynamic content not loaded. Reload?

Don't you think that the misterious woman at the end of the episode really resembles her?
I guess it's a bit hard to tell since they have a different hairstyle but the eyes and the sad face are practically identical. Plus she received a call from Akiho (and she turned it down), who else could she be?

I suppose it's possible, I mean I was caught up in the implication that this was the Frau Kojiro Kaito had been talking about, but I suppose it'd make for an interesting twist if it was the case. Hard to know though, I mean this is an I.G production and their character designs often tend to have very similar looking and less outlandish appearances across characters than say most anime where you'll see characters with wacky hair colors and the like so it could just as easily be someone entirely different as it could be an aged Misa instead.

I wish he were a little bit more outgoing. As of now, he's a bore to watch for me.
Yeah, while it's great to see that he does care it's the other 90% of the time when he's doing nothing that really makes him tough to get behind. Most of the time he's just saying give up or "I won't move unless you beat me at a game in which I'm one of the best on the planet." Thus even when he does take some action for Akiho's sake it doesn't make him feel any less dull. I'm sure future episodes will help in getting into his head. Still, for now it's just a case of hoping they get more people in that club. Having Akiho racing around at top speed along with Kaito's hidden assistance can't really carry this thing for too long.

Over already? That sure was fun, with the crazy narrator and Aki yelling all the moves' names. His disease is quite like a cheat code, isn't it? When they lost, I just knew Kaito would blackmail the guy to get a win for their school. Looking foward to the next episode when they will hopefully introduce the last "main" character of the Robotic Club(the blonde chick), she seems like a fun character, and Kaito seems to know her surname(she's famous after all, surrounded by all the reporters).

In regards to their disease, on the flashback this episode both Aki and Kaito were passed out on a boat with a bunch of other people. Wonder what happened there and what her sister meant at the end.

Overall awesome episode.

FABOLOUS !!!
Why did a Star Driver character participating in Robo One tournament? Shouldnt he fight Tauburn instead??


So Kaito is having the opposite effect from Akiho? One is having time move too slow, another one is having time move so fast. Interesting...

Ep3.

Man, I had no idea Nanjou Yoshino was so good. She really gives life to Akiho. I did think Kimura Ryouhei was good, and he is.

I liked how Kaito's disinterestedness became an asset in the tournament, keeping him so calm. Not as laid-back as usual, but pretty laid-back.

But the whole thing went a bit fast and was a bit too contrived for me. On to ep4! Good developments lurking.

So, the scene from the beginning of episode one seems to be at some undetermined future from everything we've seen so far. This episode we got a glimpse at the blonde girl with pig tails we saw in that first scene in episode one. She's presumably joining the club soon I'd guess.

I wonder what the big issue is between Aki and her sister that makes them both not want to talk to each other. Older sister totally gives off the "I'm sleeping with my boss" vibe.

So, flashbacks!



Some cruise boat.



Presumably Aki, passed out. Bunch of other people passed out in the background. Who's hand is she holding on to? Kaito's? That hand looks awfully big.



Presumably that's Kaito. Also, presumably, this pass-out party has something to do with Kaito and Aika's time-related issues. What do these flashbacks have to do with the red aurora, assuming it's even an aurora (didn't think you can see an aurora from Japan). Remember, these flashbacks look to be similar to the ones from episode two. Just, they were all happy looking on that boat in that episode.

If he's still a dull and uninspiring character 10 episodes from now then I'll have a lot more to say about the matter, but somehow I doubt it and I think a simple matter of patience and sticking with the show will see the day through on this matter. I'll just say rare is the two cour anime series where I've completely fallen in love with the core cast after only 40 minutes. Usually it takes at least a month for me to really start getting into a cast and to get a feel for what makes them tick.
Thing is though, I liked Oreki because I can relate to wanting to take things at a leisurely pace and finding it difficult to related to more outwardly enthusiastic people - yet at the same time not being truly disinterested (though Oreki tries to deny the last bit). Hyouka's excellent portrayal of that sold me on the show from the first episode all the way to a frankly brilliant finale - quite impressive for a show I expected very little from going in.

Whereas our protagonist here honestly reminds me of this:

I may find a lot of social situations tiring but I have a distaste for these kinds of hyper-antisocial types too. There aren't that many shows where the male lead actually manages to annoy me, the first couple episodes of this have managed to be a notable exception.

ok, seems like robotics:notes is starting to gather speed now plot wise with the cast slowly gathering.

Kai seems to have the same illness as Aki , what with the slow motion during the robot fight. what's with that , and the Aurorae too. guess this is not your regular world/earth setting

me guess the new girl at the Airport is the Kill-Ballad programmer ... IDK maybe ^^, seems she just suddenly transferred in, interested much in Kai?

That was my guess right from the first episode. It would be quite awesome if she were, since she's supposed to be very skilled and join their club after all.

Have quite enjoyed this up to now - particularly love the chemistry between Kaito and Akiho. Nothing seems all that forced in terms of those two - I get the vibe of they've been friends for so long, that despite their faults, they'll always be together in some context (the trashtalk from the first opponent was particularly amusing, referring to them as a couple and Kai having good controls 'in bed' I actually watched that bit twice, purely because I found that bit pants-on-head hilarious).

Only thing I find rather odd about the whole thing is the character in the ED sequence. It's not quite on the level of non-sequitur as Symphogear (and a lesser note, Madoka Magica), but it doesn't seem to fit for me at the moment - perhaps more episodes are needed to find out what that character's relevance is?

Are you sure we're watching the same show then cause he seems plenty capable of socializing to me, just not the extreme outgoing type. Now if you want to talk about anti-social characters I think Subaru fits the bill better, but I'm just really not seeing what's supposed to be so unlikeable about Kaito at all. Are we talking about how he challenges everyone to a game of Kill Ballad all the time, because I think that's supposed to be something of a running gag more than anything.

So Ginga Bishounen joins the ranks of the Robotics Clubs. Will Frau Kojiro be next? She seems to have her eyes on Kai. Better watch out Aki-chan, because while I was SQUEEING like a fangirl at the boat flashback scene, next episode it seems you've got some competition on board!

Mister Pleiades, this is what Char would look like if the Star Driver team remakes the original Gundam in their vision. (and may it never happen)

I'm really loving this series and it should even better now that Mister Pleiades is part of the club.

I agree with Kaoishin Sama. I don't see Kaito as all that negative, really. His negativity is partly a front, as well as a comic schtick for the anime. He clearly supports and likes Akiho, and will do almost anything to help her -- after some obligatory resistance. I mean, if you are with such a ridiculously positive person all the time, you have to devise some kind of defense in order to avoid constantly being swept this way and that. In the end, the depressive shield he erects around himself served him well by keeping him calm during the fights.

I also agree with viper_dk: "...particularly love the chemistry between Kaito and Akiho. Nothing seems all that forced in terms of those two...." Credit the script and direction, but also Kimura Ryouhei and Nanjou Yoshino (<-- avatar at left).
