That was better than the first ep, though this still seems so light and fluffy that a decent breeze would carry it away. The newcomers Hime and Edogawa seem promising, and there's certainly nothing not to like here - just not much depth. But I swear, all the students look like airline pilots in those uniforms.

"Fujita terris"? I assume Fujita is the tornado intensity scale, but if the subs are correct I don't quite get that reference.

Well, looking at Jwiki, the series is just beginning to warm up. There are tons of new characters waiting to be introduced.

Maybe it's because I'm not watching any other comedy animes this season but I found the first 2 episodes absolutely hilarious. I know there was nothing ground breaking comedy wise, but I just couldn't help laughing out loud at some scenes.

Mishoshi's "energetic character" doesn't really bother me and based on that pause we saw in episode 2 when her parents we're mentioned, I'm sure we'll see a more serious side to her at some point. The rest of the characters are likable as well and everyone's VA is doing a good job.

Also, I haven't a seen re-occurring "throwing up blood" gag in any other anime's except FMA. I still found it funny in ep. 2 (the bike riding scene had me in stitches) but I hope I don't get sick of it by the end of series.

I'm sold. I love these characters, and I'm a sucker for High School life, expecially when there's romance potential thrown in. I'm sure a lot of fellow geeks can relate to Saku's character, too.

One pet peeve: the Cast and Staff members have their astrological sign after their name in the ending credit sequence. Astrology isn't a science, and astronomy (the nominal subject matter of the show) is. However, it doesn't look like they're going to get beyond pointing out specific stars and constellations in this show, so there won't be much science content anyway.

Did this show air this week?

It did air, but there's no encode in sight. Should be one by tonight, though.

If you know where to look.... Anyway, I basically agree.
Spoiler for ep3:
And Chiang Li-mei is a half-Taiwanese stage and film actress, 27 years old. She's going by her Chinese name now, rather than her Japanese name (Toyohara Satomi). She was in 15 stage plays between 2003 and 2007. Her voice sounded pretty amateurish here, but I judge from the fact she is in the cast list on the official site that we will be hearing more of her. I didn't see her previous seiyuu roles, as I-pin in Katekyo Hitman Reborn and as Carly Nagisa in Yu-Gi-Oh 5Ds. There are links to her official site and blog on her ANN page. There are pics of her (worth seeing) there and on my characters and seiyuus page for this show.

Well the entertainment level from this series has been bouncing up and down quite a lot so it isn't surprising (or anything new) to see this episode being boring (I've already had parts felt like that in the previous 2 episodes anyway). Still I gotta see for myself...and maybe Hime will make more funny moments again

Thanks for the info.

This is a very light series, and it's already falling into some predictable patterns, but for me it's enjoyable enough to be worth watching.

I watched the ep again and I think I agree with you. It was an unusual voice -- not cookie-cutter professionalism -- but did convey some personality. Often, actors' voices seem bad because they are not the pro seiyuu norm, but do convey something about the character.

She definitely gave across more personality in her voice than others that I've heard (remembers back to Shikabane Hime...). She may not be pro but she did a good job at giving the character "colour and personality" despite the character herself having a pretty small role.

While I got nothing against Mii-chan and do like her, I much prefer Hime, she's just much more lovable

Well, looking at the cast list, they are getting the character count going. More, please.

I also have something against Mishoshi.

Though the chances of Mihoshi ending up with the guy is far higher... and since the manga hasn't ended yet, I doubt we will see a conclusion in the anime...
