Saki was definitely BS'ing in that she was framing her reactions in such a way as to try to to spare Haruto's feelings. But in a way she was also telling the truth, in regard to her jaded, disillusioned views about adults and the idol industry.

What she actually said was
Quote:
"I'm an idol, you know. I can never be tied down to a single person. You're such a child, Haruto. I'm a celebrity. I have to deal with this kind of stuff every day. The world we adults live in would make you kids tremble."
She's talking there about the way that idols aren't allowed to be known to have significant others because that would harm their marketability (as fanboys would throw a fit at the idol they like to imagine is their waifu being tainted by actually having a boyfriend who is not them). She's probably also talking about the seedy, exploitative side of the idol business. Is she implying that this isn't the first time she's had to deal with sexual assault or threats of that kind or others, and saying it's not a big deal or that adults (ie: her) can handle those situations? Quite likely. And undoubtedly she actually has dealt with at least the threat of such situations or of exploitation.

I don't see anything in that quote which has Saki saying or implying that she's either promiscuous or a slut. In any case, my point is that it is really wrong for people to assume that non-virginity would equal "she must be a slut!" in the first place.

I kinda think she unintentionally tries to islolate themselves from everyone not so they can bond more but just because she wants to be "assaulted" by Haruto again. She obviously doesnt mind it since she is with him all the time. I .e Shown duing the preview where haruto was caged

Saki reaction after the assault indicate that maybe she might want Haruto's D after all

Valvrave tomorrow. As long they show more Saki, Shouko and Akira in action(less Haruto and L-Elf), I'm satisfied. Cain may have more role, since he's seems to be the default sentai show antagonist.

I expect a lot of interaction between Saki and Shoko and hopefully with L-Elf too, have much in common.

i'm sorry, but i think some of you don't know/misuse the word "slut" means...she is not a slut. just because we saw that scene doesn't make her a slut. as far as we know she only had sex with one guy and that's haruto. just cuz saki or any other anime character in general had sex doesn't mean they are a slut...saki would be known as a slut if she enjoys fucking another guy or the whole character list in the anime other than haruto. get it right people!!

Well, it's kinda impossible for Saki and Shoko to interact for now.
Unless those smartphones have really good range

These phones can reach deep underground and the vastness of space all the way to what appeared to be the Asteroid Belt. I think they have enough range to get from the moon to Earth.

But yeah, if the moon, the modules, and the Earth couldn't all communicate, it would be bad business for all three countries. Everyone would be isolated. So, yeah, I'm sure that Saki and Shoko could communicate.

I think this episode did show a bit of Saki's development. When she told Akira that she wasn't alone I was actually a bit touched. Is this really the same Saki?? It seems like she's really softening up.. or maybe she's showing the warm side of herself that she was afraid to show before? I really hope that this continues because she and Akira were adorable (even if they were in different bodies).

They have similar backgrounds

They don't have a happy childhood
They had family issues

Akira retreated into her shell cut off real life contact
Saki built a wall around her and other people
I think Saki has a gut feeling/radar to detect a fellow lonely soul.

It's still the same Saki to me. What she did for Akira isn't anything new. You can relate it to pulling Aina towards that duct in episode two, or helping Shoko in the kitchen. She can be a little awkward, but genuinely kind to others, after experiencing kindness herself. Did you see the way she looked when Akira handed her that handkerchief? She looked quite surprised someone that she is really together with for the first time would do that for her. She was even telling Akira to stay inside the crevice where it was safe before then. I also agree with Keyboard that Saki can tell when another person is just lonely like her, but that's not the reason for her kindness.

Now that Saki has found herself alone behind enemy lines, what would you guess is in store for her in the coming episodes?

I was thinking that she may be joining in with Cain and his team undercover, however I have a feeling that Cain will be able to recognize her for what she is.

So basically, she's gonna act as JIOR's spy or something. Interesting. I just hope they don't pull a R2 Kallen Kouzuki on her, and basically have her remain alone in the enemies hands for a long stretch of time.

Course, I wonder if Haruto is gonna want to go back and try to save her immediately, leading to more conflict between him and L-Elf.

Don't see why it would be difficult to rescue her. Saki and A-drei are by themselves and A-Drei is injured. He has called for help but the people he is counting on for rescue were in the vicinity of a huge explosion which could have damaged their vehicles.

All it takes is Saki calling L-Elf again then Akira can use her hacking skills to find out her location and then sending L-Elf to take out A-Drei
