Then again, I suppose betting against their survival rate can be fun for a little bit, but this series has more or less settled to be more of a somewhat relaxing series for me (after glancing at that interview), so I really hope the script doesn't do a 180. I have nothing against series like Attack on Titan or Muv Luv, but one of those is enough for any given season. With that said, Yoshida is actually doing quite alright so far. Most of the times her script just completely turn me off or just hit all the right spots. Glad the latter is true this time around.
After seeing her work on Girls und Panzer, I certainly hope she keeps that streak running!

I just realized Izuru's call sign Red 5 is the same as Luke Skywalker in Star Wars.

LOL I picked up on that the very first time.

Red 5 is something of an inside joke in Star Wars. Not just Luke but Anikan and Chewbacca have been assigned it at various times.

Wow, I never thought that Red 5 hold such deeper (joke) meaning . Not really Star Wars savvy but at least I like the original trilogy and Vader (anything about the prequels should be drown into the deepest trench).

The overall production values of this show are good and the plot so far of a last defense of Earth seems to be decent, but man the main cast (especially Tamaki) and their interactions are just dragging it down at this point for me. I don't understand why every single interaction between them (save for the one Kei and Toshi had last week that felt like the first real and not awkwardly comedic interaction between any of the core cast to date) seems to need to be the most predictable and typically goofy comedic sketch or some form of abstract moralizing. I'd almost call the cast and their interactions and dialogues too cliche and predictable at this point and kind of hard to get behind. Mundane might be a better way of putting it though.

What sucks too is the cast's IMO mundane interactions so far seem to be taking up a majority of the focus of the show and it's just not interesting enough for me now, especially since I find them kind of continually annoying save maybe for Kei. I'm sort of not surprised given that the series composer Reiko Yoshida is kind of becoming infamous to me for scripts that focus on a lot of IMO very mundane typical (for anime) day to day interactions between a core cast of 4-5 characters that I just rarely find funny or fascinating.

Probably giving this a couple more episodes to pick up character development wise because to borrow a cliche I really want to like it as a fan of mecha, but not if it's just going to revolve mostly around the cast being vaguely retarded for the rest of the series.

I liked the prequels just as much as the original trilogy.

Anyone else think that the porn viewing scene will amount to something later?

They have upgraded boosters/vernier thrusters (see Blue One's shoulder pauldrons/thruster blocks) and increased weaponry (glaringly obvious on Gold Four). The rest is merely cosmetic and pretty much unnoticeable.

Agreed, it just looks as if they simply added a few bits and pieces to the original designs.

That's the thing, they don't look cooler, they look the same. This is supposed to be their armored form but where is the armor? Did they just make their outer shells harder and add a few pieces?

Seems exactly like that. Functionality over style, I approve.

That was one boring episode, at least next episode we'll finally meet the Wulgaru which only took the first quarter of the series to do.

And no, Gundamx, we don't know for sure. Plus when are people going to figure out her real name is Theoria? Can we stop calling her Lacus? Please?
