Supposedly, yes. There however is no evidence of such a thing happening, and what actually happened is in doubt at this point.

That's fairly standard procedure for villian races. They're bad news when they're first introduced, but get noticeably weaker and in greater numbers as they make more and more appearances. Considering how they couldn't stop a pair of Victors from breaching Island One (outran VF-25s w/ fastpacks), hundreds of them should pretty much have free rain of any battlefield, unless they're on the defensive.

She's got to have at least 1/16th Space Whale... that explains the glowing!!!

I'm sure we haven't seen the Vajra bring out their big guns yet. Although, the fate of Galaxy is still a big question mark...

The ep was decent, i can see what the show is trying to setup song/resolution related wise .. i'm sure everyone else sees it too.

GOOOOOOOO Diamond Force! :3 if only they were painted black it would have been even more awesome. The M7 fans know what i'm talking about.

Seriously Luca put on guns on those drones and set them to "defend me". If this whole experience of him getting constantly losing/shot at helps make his character grow up I'll be shocked and Awed.

The grace in the shell tag is awesome btw .

At the end of the episode the bad guys seemed the humantradis btw: I mean they annihilated so happiliy...
I hope the Vajra have some kind of Death Star, as I was saying before, otherwise they're done for.

One thing is for certain. Ranka is being molded into a goddess figure. She'd be singing the songs of peace sooner or later.

As for the Vajra, I would not be so hasty as to put judgment on them any time soon. After all, we still don't know much about them, and they are pretty free to show up whenever they see fit. Although I suspect Grace and other associated personnel would know more, but I doubt they would know everything.

And I doubt the mothership is the biggest Vajra ship present, but we will see what happens in the later episodes. After all, the spoiler for 18 did indicate that Frontier is suffering from hardships due to relentless Vajra attacks. So Vajra siege tactics seem to be working.

Yeh, you're probably right. Speaking of space whales, though... once the Vajra learn to sing, a RankaXVajra rendition of Angel Voice would be... godly...

Even better when it got remixed into this... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F3SJItECuwA

Whoever did the "reaction suppository", I love you.

As much as I enjoy Luca, he better buck up soon, or at least use his drones effectively in combat. We only saw them do a little bit in episode 7, hopefully he'll actually use them well in the future.

If you're basing that on his rescue attempt than the real triangle is Alto, Ranka and Luca.

I'll further note that he didn't wait - or ask - for permission to rescue Luca.

Time to draw up a relationship chart with Alto, Luca, Nanase, Ranka and Brera! Since Nanase might like Luca it now makes sense why she's so eager to get Ranka together with Alto so she can rid herself of her main competition for luca's affections!!

It sounds like we got a new background music piece this episode, in the opening scenes where everyone is fleeing the dimensional eater. It's a nice cello piece....at least I think it is a cello .

edit - actually I think there's 2 new pieces. The 2nd is when the Quarter undergoes its transformation.

They all have mother issues.

If there's one thing worse imo, than a loli complex, its a yaoi pedo complex.

^ People accuse Ranka of appealing to the lolita-complex, but Luca's definiently designed for shotacons, complete with a big-breasted, womanly love interest.

I actually expect a big backlash against Ranka. It's a Cinderalla story afterall. Midnight will come, and it'll probably have pitchforks, flaming torches, and alot of finger pointing accompanying it. Since, you know, the people of Frontier are obviously hate mongers and sheeple.

Sheryl being poisoned and forgotten won't compare at all to the shock of being adored by all to becoming public enemy number 1.

Oh, so you call that "shota"? Then what I wanted to say to Westlo was:


@Westlo: He's loli and shota I'm telling you.

Yeah, and that's why I dislike the NanaseXLuca pairing just as much as the AltoXRanka one. Though maybe my enormous dislike for both Nanase and Luca also plays a factor too. Hmmm....I'd hate AltoXLuca just as much too.
