Well to be fair form this point on everything in this show becomes anime original...

Luckily, this arc seems to only last for 19-21, then it's a "pirate hunt" arc.

Ai looks like she's going to be one dangerous pilot one day (soon). She rather likes their dinghy. Also flying the Silent Whisper. A rather small First Year is piloting the high tech FTL equipped fighter. But then she has also piloted a pirate warship in combat...so I suppose she can fly anything now with at least some credibility.

Wrong. Kicking off the ground should have sent her floating up. That didn't happen. Plus, no gravity means very little traction (IIRC, it's proportional to the area of contact and the force exerted on it).

Episode 19

A nice episode to end the previous arc, I guess. Poor Marika is so worn out from going to school and working as a pirate. She needs a vacation badly.

And if the background stories of most Enterprise crews are to go by, every single one of them is destined for flagship postings...

Or death/"red shirts" ship USS Valiant i.e. a gimped Defiant Class prototype use for so-called "best of the best" "red squad" cadets training ship.

Unlike the Yacht club's Yayoi (has engineering experience), "Red squad" didn't solve Valiant's warp drive/warp core issues which limits it's warp speed/warp power and stability with it's power grid.

It is night time so don't make your heart shut down.(My heart already shut down 10 hours ago due to moeness from another series.)

Speaking of which from my post just now:
Misa's VA is the same as Takei Hisa's(From Mainline Saki) VA, thus when they play mahjong and she wins a yakuman, i said something about her using bad waits again.

Indeed. Though for me, she was just that ridiculously cute pilot... until this showed up.



Ai's gonna show the noobs how to catch some wind, and look adorable doing so!

I knew Ai was a gem. The preview just proves it.

Interestingly, my fic makes more sense after the Jenny arc than before... Looks like I have A LOT of rewriting to do...

Your 2nd point alone places them in the flagship category.

PLUS, Marika may not be a great person, or a great student, but because she is not the kind that gets everyone killed. On that alone, she is a good captain.

Ah, good ol' Nog.

now i just realized that the Kato family's ring's design looks really similar to The Phantom's ring.....
Spoiler for trailer:

*imagines Marika punching the crap out of somebody which leaves a skull-shaped scar mark from her ring onto their bodies*

so does that mean the Kato's are actually the descendants of the The Phantom family!?

Spoiler for Some thoughts on Episode 19:


Chiaki, you need to come back and wear out Marika with ..er... "special attention" so that Marika sleeps for three days straight! You know what must be done!

And meanwhile, a young girl, the splitting image of Marika, infiltrates the Hakuoh Academy and steals plans of the original Bentenmaru from the encrypted data banks. The club pursues, but the Odette II is caught in the transwarp wake of the spy’s shuttlecraft. They find themselves in orbit around Morningstar, but everything’s different. They've also jumped several months into the future. And that’s when they realize…

...that they are in the Mirror Universe, and another Katou Marika is about to pull off the greatest act piracy ever: Use the Defiant-class Bentenmaru to steal an entire galaxy from the United Federation of Serenity!

(screw star wars, everything is cooler in the Mirror Universe!)

I have a question for you Meister Babylon, you invented this scenario is or what you have seen this scenario in the novel?

Judging from past conversations, I would say it is something invented for fan fiction purposes. Based on the series and images from various artists.

And welcome. There are other French speakers around, though I don't know how many watch this particular show.

I feel the exact same way. I was initially expecting pretty much the kind of show we've gotten this past couple of episodes but saw my expectations rise meteorically after the first two story arcs. I mean I was ok with episode 18, it was a simple breather episode that a 26 episode long show needs to have, but episode 19 was just dreadful. I spent half the episode wanting to slap the serenity princesses and the other half facepalming at how "high" Marika looked.

I did however get the realization that Ai is just too freaking cute after she asked to pilot the dinghy but that's about it.

As for the preview I won't comment much on it cause we've been mislead before (beach episode that turns into Marika going around dealing with paperwork anyone?)
