"Acting cool" is very high school. Iceman is a hothead who "acts" cool.
He reminds me of those "cool" pretty rich boys in comedy love stories that try to be cool and all but looks lame after they lose their temper when he's ignored by the female protaganist or after the protaganist own's him by having a harem. You know which type of talking about. Because Iceman reminds me of those lame characters.

@ BetoJR & Keichi_chan

I kinda disagree, Maturity is when you show restraint at the right time, not go around acting like a regular hothead all the time. Atleast, Iceman doesn't go screaming his dislike of streetbasket ball all the freakin time like Dan. I mean, come on guys, he even has this really lame ' DESTROY' persona created to release his stress/hatred. It's definitely weird but I find it less annoyin than Dan's almost constant whining. In any case, they both probably have a lot of growing up to do by the end of the series.

That said, 'DESTROYYY' being lame is lame, but for some reason I cant help but like his chara. I'm liking this series so far, the amazing sights, likable charaters, ridiculous but descent plotline ( kinda oxymoronish, but hard not to be with bigfoot basketball & Moon singers & whatnot).

I'm also loving the strange dynamic between sela & Iceman. It's my favourite parts of the show, aside from the mindblowing sights. I know it's way too early but I'm waving my sela X Iceman flag already. ( I think my affinity towards them is also due to their resemblance to Sheryl X Alto * wink*)

Besides Iceman has to have some fault or he would overshadow Dan. This is his one fault that we know of. Whereas, we know Dan is loaded with faults and being led by the nose by Miyuki.

Dan is still a kid though so of course he's still immature. Anyways hope that he'll start practicing soon, since now he'll be getting a sponsor this will be he's chance to make money to get he's sister to the moon to fix her legs.

Ah, but in this situation he is suppose to be more mature since he is the caretaker of Coco, his crippled sister. So we can now add irresponsible to his list of faults. Iceman had to have a big fault to overshadow Dan (our hero), hence we get "DESSSSTROOOY!!!!!!" as a counterbalance.

The three are composed of brat, slut, and nut. It's futile to argue over who's mature among those.

And yes, I picked those words for rhyming, dun wanna hear no dissin' about it, yo.

So then who's the one with the butterfly? The Princess (Flora)? Her hair bow does look like it's alive.

Dan is acting like your prototypical shonen protag. It's not really called "mature".
It would've taken a shonen protag at least 5-10 episodes before they learned to start "fighting for others" the way Dan is for Coco from the first episode on.

Dan has been a bit more calm and level headed when he needs to be.
He's also shown maturity by not hating the BigFoots themselves for crushing Coco's legs.
He's intrepid and impulsive, but he does have some sense of responsibility.

But yeah, all three of the leads so far have shown nearly equal immaturity.

the only one that have shown a lot of maturity are Miyuki and the two other friends.
Even Coco beat those three in the maturity department

Please do not start disparaging comparisons so early on. Specially towards our Galactic Fairy, 'mkay?

Sry, when I said resemblance, I meant their appearance, not their personality of course. I just miss altoX sheryl so much. Alto voices Iceman, Sela sort of looks like Sheryl. Can you really blame me? I'm just shipping them for superficial reasons for now, not serious abt it or anythin.

I didn't mean to desecrate the Galactic Fairy's memory or anything. XD I love Sheryl Nome!!! She's way up there for me; the highest level of awesome ever. Haven't come across a single character that's as fantastically awesome as her yet.

Then you should ship Iceman and that annoying pet Dan has got, Spanky. It's voiced by the same VA as Sheryl.

Now, that's more like it.
I kid, but I completely agree with you. Still looking for another one as cool as her.

SELA FTW!!!

I loved those Sela-gasms, and I lol'd at her sperm request. Definitely my favorite character so far.

I seriously raised an eyebrow or two at that scene there. My ongoing thoughts at the moment of impression: "wait... what...? did she just say... what i think she just said? o.O"

Also forgot to mention this in my previous post, but iceman has gotta be homo for turning down such an offer

No that's called being mature and smart. One doesn't have sex or give up his sperm just because someone asks him. How do you know that Sela won't turn into an Alex Forrest (Fatal Attraction)?

Point taken. But if it means that she becomes mai waifu, then sure why not? lol

I'm also gonna wager a guess that this new manager of Dan's is actually a Nike corporate in disguise lol =P

May I highly recommend the Twilight Zone episode "The Glove" as a counterpoint for why accepting such a suggestion might be a bad idea?
