i disagree...well, the scripting in and of itself is fine, but the shrillness that was present in the first few ep of birdy with Maaya is all but gone, which I thought was a nice touch. Her and Mizuhashi Kaori were the only 2 VA's that had that unique touch...or atleast were capable of adding that touch...

now it's just mizuhashi kaori atm

I really don't know why i'm watching raws. I mean i'm good enough with manga material, though i get more out of this watching subs. Saying that, finally got around to seeing the third episode.

I knew he was going to die, though i didn't think it would hit me as hard as it did. It must have been Tute's few last scenes that made his death so hard to take. Really emotional scene, especially with the beautiful flashback added at the end. That really got to me.

I've just started picking up this series and I'm at Ep 2 at the moment, with a question.

Watched upto episode five, and i still rate this as one of my favorite shows of the season. I must say it's pretty challenging trying to adapt to a different environment when you're so used to the Earth setting thanks to the first three episodes. I'm sure that doesn't help along with what people have been saying.

I can't wait to see episode 06, 'cause i've been missing Maaya.

I'm still a little disturbed to learn that Birdy's standard combat uniform [and thus Deity Najala's as well] is apparently also worn by Altarian hookers.

Also what is Najala on to complain about Birdy using excessive force?



Much props to AoShen for thier recent rate of translation.

She was wearing a different outfit. It wasn't her standard combat uniform --- you can tell if you take a better look (yes that means i did <3).

That's right. The hooker outfit was much less revealing than her regular uniform.

Oh. Seems your right. Birdy's clubbing costume shows her midriff. At first pass it looked like she'd just put on a white version of the shocktrooper jacket Skeletsu wears when he breaks in later. That does leave the question of how much the shift in the prologue to episode 1 was Tute rather than the costume morphing. Also the other female characters [That I can spot and get a good look at, like the dancer and Nimukay] in the Bar are wearing more conventional and frillier bras.

Still leaves both Birdy and Najula showing more thigh while wearing thier formal tabards than Weegie who appears to wear trousers and a top under hers. But then she seems more a case officer and less a field agent than say Skeletsu or Kashugeza [who from the rule of uniform complexity is the lowest ranker in the scene at the end having no collar stripes.]

The civilian Altarians in the bombing scene don't seem quite so casual about skin so I'm going to assume the character with the budgie and tabard in the OP is also a combat type. I'm assuming that last is an agent of either the Army or the Council from the tabard and wish to stay hidden.

That was the only good part about the episode. She needs to ditch her other uniform and wear that from now on

Seems that AOShen's version has some problem when I view it my media players. I'll wait for a better translation.

Skeletsu seems to be voiced by Norio Wakamoto I guess. Not sure.

He sure is. There shouldn't be a "not sure" about it, the man has a legendary voice like none other.

I double checked and it was. Wasn't sure initially. Wonder if Charley boy would face off against Skeletsu in terms of combat skills.

Michiko Neya's there too. She voiced one of Magius' subordinates, forgot her name already... Dammit!
