Hallelujah! Episode 10 is out. My wishes have been answered. XD


Great, can't wait to see what's on this one. Thanks for doing it, by the way! (Will edit this post as soon as I watch it! Which should be in another 30 minutes.)

EDIT: Okay, I got carried away doing other things. Pretty neat episode. I liked the swimming pool bit; and also I'm very interested by the fact that

Thank you, thank you Anime-Fansubs!

Just watched episode 10 and thing are progressing as they tested their spacesuits and continued their training. Asumi's determination was showed clearly and also little details about Marikas past were revealed.
Spoiler:

Space debris mentioned in this episode can be dangerous, NASA has to change shuttle windows rather often as they are being hit by debris.

Oh, and Asumi looks cute in waitress uniform.

I posted the explanation as a spoiler earlier in this thread... BUT in hindsight, I think it would have been better for me to have waited and to have tried to figure it out on my own. The puzzle is interesting, but the clues are clearly present in the show itself, and the answer is just about the only logical explanation there is. The makers of the show chose to drag out the mystery for several episodes. So it would have been better to watch the progression as the creators had intended, I think. Sorry if this post sounds a little too coy. I can't help myself. It's a really intriguing mystery, and Marika's a truly great character in the end, I think.

I LOVE this show!

From Natsume Maya:

"More release details for the Futatsu no Spica (Twin Spica) DVD Box to be released on 22 July 2004: catalogue number KIBA-91066, price 31,290 yen (including tax). As previously stated, it'll contain all 20 episodes."

Considering how expensive R2s typically go for, that's a pretty good price for a 20 episode series.

"We love you Anime-Fansubs, oh yes we do-oo"

Woohoo, Episode 11! Slowly but surely - which is immensely better than never, or quick and nasty. Hoorah for Anime-Fansubs!

I agree with you Keitaro, on both points. But I loved the second half of this episode - so sad. Poor Lion-san
At least it sounds like Asumi will have some more encouragement in Tokyo from now on.

BTW, Zarxrax...what is that girl doing to the tree in your avatar?

You may be waiting a bit longer
This is another "Young Asumi" episode.

LOL yeah I realized that when I started watching it, I had forgotten what the previews from the previous episode were, BUT the next episode isn't, HA HA!

Anyway, as always this one was great, I did get a bit more of a filler feel from it as opposed to the other flashbacks even when they didn't actually effect the storyline. Still all in all it was really good

There is clearly two storylines, one about six year old Asumi and other about teenage Asumi.

But anyway, ep. 12 was good, and very sad... While SaiKano was sad and depressing, Twin Spica has some optimism, but maybe because of it its very emotional and characters are much likeable. I was in tears during this episode.

I really Hate these "young asumi" episodes because I find them distracting. That being said - episode 12 was quite good, possibly my favorite episode so far.

For me it is exactly the other way around. I generally like young Asumi episodes but episode 12 was the first one with a bit of a filler feeling.

Perhaps it is because Kasane has no connection to the other characters yet.

But this episode was still good *snif* . So far this show has no really bad episode.

Also I had to laugh about Lionsan. A spirit/ghost that is out of breath.

Boy you're not the only one. Twin Spica is the only anime which consistantly drove me to tears. It's quickly becoming one of my favorite anime series.

I read some online review of the manga by some Japanese fans; appearantly the manga is much more of a tear-jerker and tells more background stories. I think I'll have to buy them and check it out. Anyone saw any scanlations of Futari No Spica out there?

Unhappy Sigh...

Just found out that there's only 20 episodes of Twin Spica. So we'd only have 8 more left. It's strange to have only 20 shows when the norm is either 13 or 26.... maybe it was canceled? It is in the 9AM Saturday timeslot... which is a prime children's anime spot. Maybe the ratings weren't so good? Zannen datta ne...
