This entire episode has been waving death flags as if it's the exterior of the UN HQ in New York.

I don't think there was any intentional Death flags this time around. It's just heartwarming calm before the storm. Even with dobermans wiped out this isn't show that would be kill cast in gundam manner. Only people I can see be in danger right now is Simon or Daneel. Team Bunnies will be fine.

Especialy as possibility for second season is seriously considered.

What about Teoria? She asked Daneel to protect Rabbits instead of her. Agreed about the death flags. I can't see this series actually doing something awful to the Rabbits.

Looks like lots of fighting next week. Can't wait!

Kindve out there but the secrecy concerning Simon has felt odd to me.
You took that straight out of Gundam SEED, didn't you?

*looks at MJP art*

...oh snap.

Ok I guess Teoria might count too.

Excluding the time travel theories, that pretty much described the relationship and set-up between Mwu la Flaga and Ra.

I'm still watching MJP, but it continues to underwhelm me the majority of the time. For a 2-cour show, it has a glacial pacing, and awkward character interactions.

Tamaki has a bust size that goes beyond fanservice IMHO and into the cancerous wtfiswrongwithyou area. It doesn't help that they also made her a total airhead that is also useless in battle. They still also haven't had Asagi do much of a proper wingman strategy with Izuru. Izuru just goes off on his own to be "Mr Awesome MC" while Asagi does something close to nothing against fodder all the time. With Kei at least its understandable, since it's hard to write intricate planning/strategy for your intel/signals person ... but there has been a few scenes at least.

And the whole Wulgaru wanting needing genes or their species will die out thing is kinda dumb IMHO. For a society that values strength and combat, they sure have a lot of useless people on their council too...

Just cause it doesn't fit your tastes, doesn't mean there is anything wrong with it. Personaly I find it's leisure pacing very nice. And it was clear from very first episode it will go this way.

Same goes with characterisation that avoid unecessary melodrame and makes good background for story. I never found that akward.

Vulgaru HAD lot of (arguably) Useless people in council. And as you could see incompetence is equal of death, which perfectly fit Vulgaru culture.

And for Tamaki, yes her bust is bad joke, still she doesn't have bad results in battle, same goes for other teamates. I recommend rewatch show.

i also don't see anything bad with the characters .. Izuru want to be a hero he act all hero like , going ahead to fight and protect his friends from harm, Asagi for a long time thought he was better then anyone and now start to see he isn't he learned from his weakness, Suruga is just a gun freak when it come to shooting he does his part , you cant expect him to just run into melee and fight like Asagi and Izuru do, Kei is the pillar of the team she issues order from afar and watch enemy and give out battle order and Tamaki is Tamaki , she is the goofy , yet heart warming koneko-chan , the way she fight , in a crazy way just fit her personality .. i dont see anything bad about it , compared to Heroic Age where Age basically did it all , those guys are capable of pulling some stuff up ... oh and yeah about Ange , ange is just a crazy battle maniac with two personality lol

I’m kinda curious. Can you mention the “a lot of” people from the council that you think are useless and what kind of deeds that earn them the “useless” moniker you bestowed upon?

It reminds me of 90s era mech anime, actually. Plot first three episodes, filler in-between, stuff happen in the last leg. And I'm fine with that. But yeah compared to the way most mechs are handled nowadays, MJP pales in comparison. And I do like the characters very much. They might seem a bit "shallow" because they don't really have traits that stand out, but I find them sort of rounded. And consistent, I suppose.

I have to say though, seriously, its mech fights are leagues away from most mech shows though. I feel like it really upped the ante on mech fights with its choreography and... I guess there's more contact between mechs here than any of the shows I've seen before which rely heavily on sniping/beamspamming/and just plain maneuvering around each other.

I'm not a huge fan, but I don't hate it either.

anyway, I didn't know that huge steel jellyfish had that kind of function, I should've suspected it before, and even when it was being evacuated, but I thought that thing was just a space station. How come simon knows almost every advanced tech on this show? and he isn't even a wulgaru, is it just because he's the one who found teoria? It would even seem that GDF command doesn't know how to operate that thing, and they're content to let simon operate it all by himself.

looks like we're having fight scenes till the end

Oh yeah, there was that plot with Nadesico. Come to think of it, the way MJP flows really reminds me of Nadesico too. A lot of the in-between were fillers with nuggest of character development and then things began rolling later on...

I'm not surprised, people have been stealing ideas from one another for centuries.
