Layfon's brand new sword became junk already in front of Layfon's kei and the moster strength... :heh:
I guess he needs his heaven blade.

God, l hate felis...well moving on.
Layfon is a goddam beast...it's scary to think how much more powerful the other heaven blade are. lt seems nina and layfon finally patched things up and here we might get the start of nina developing feelings for layfon.
I can feel it, she's close...to showing up my goddess leerin looked upset in the preview....l have a feeling she will finally be joining layfon and co...hopefully she can get him away from that annoying loli. seems there will be more ninaxlayfon development next ep as well, awesome!:heh:

Lilin needs to hurry up and reunite with Fonfon.

The elite Nina questioned if Fonfon was even human, that's kind of funny. Guess it can't be helped, the guy jumps like 20X higher than anyone, moves at super sonic speed, balances and trains on thread, you just let your imagination run wild for yourself.....

Hopefully the series picks up and gets good soon. It's been ok so far but nothing of impact. Ep. 08 looks good, and I think I'll get my wish!

Nina questioned if Fonfon was even human, that's kind of funny.

Layfon's advise to Nina added more to the funny when he said, "throw away your notion that you are human." :)

I liked the episode. It was mostly about Nina's coming to term with her own complex and everyone else also empathizing what Nina is going through. The blame was equally voiced and placed upon Layfon of course.

And I think this is where Nina starts to get away from the competition in the romance aspect of things. Perhaps, her next challenge would be the Layfon's girlfriend? :)

That was pretty amusing, even with no real flags raising. She did actually seem to take it as a mistake. Though Layfon seems to have the particular 'gift' for such fanservice.

From what I read from the episode reviews, he seems to accept the blame in a good way, which is something good to see.

Nina getting over her complex is something good to see as well, and hoo yea more development with Layfon. :heh: Also, oh yeah no more seeing "YOU JUST GROPED ME! DIE!" in most anime (although I won't hope so if it was Felli, but then I predict she'd be too shocked and embarrassed to even kick Fon-fon :heh: ) for this title it seems, ever since after Nina got it first XD. To be honest, this show probably fulfills my criteria of "what I want to see."

And for the first time, successful teamwork saved the day. Although I got to question Felli's fainting.

Did she use too much power? Even though I should remember that even as a powerful psychokinesist she has limits, I still didn't think that was possible? Or I guess she really outdid herself and fainted. :heh:


And further ammunition for talks for romance. Warning to the fans who haven't watched the episode yet: one image might be misleading.

Misleading, indeed! :heh:

Oh yeah, to those who was able to watch the episode, was there a duet for the ED again? Who was it this time?

Well I wonder why Leerin is so sad.... has she started to feel lack of Layfon and misses him so much.....(maybe she didnt recived any letter/word from Layfon and is worried that something happened XD) hmmm at anime site it was something mentioned about 1 or 2 heaven-blades standing in front of Leerin... (that silver guy from ep1 that was fighting with Layfon that monster).... so maybe Leerin will go to Zueli soon ^^ and those 2heaven-bledes are her body guards durring the trip to Zueli (well order from queen)

I dont like the idea of Nina falling for Layfon now.... she would be emotionaly disturbed then XD and her feelings change so fast and random that is strange.... first she is amazed with his power....than she starts to hate him becouse of taht power and that it makes her look weak..... then she feels jelous over it..... now its all ok...... so makeing her grow romantic feelings now after 7episodes and so many emotional changes looks kinda strange for me ^^

I hope Leerin will appear soon so a fight over Layfons heart would start between the girls XD

Episode was quite good but the new sword is still too weak...compared to the one layfon had in ep1 >__> (but I wonder why didnt he used that attack that he killed the larva mother and that slashed in half that bug from ep1)

Anyway it's clear that Layfon's power and his Kei strenght is reallllly huge ^^ even weapons (special made for him) couldnt hold much time with that kind of kei level's XD Layfon needs upgreades and again upgreades till the stage where he can use his full power without breaking his weapon ^^

but in the fight with the monster nina kinda done nothing XD she was only standing there and waited for Layfon to pull her up..... and again why didnt the strings cut her in half.... since layfon was hiting the larvas and they were cutting them like butter......Felli lost her disguise too.... now they now that feli can use he powers for very long distances...

Naruki's maturity continues to impress me. She's becoming one of my favorite characters in this series. If Fon-Fon was smart, he'd avoid the main charas chasing him, and run off with Naruki. Hey, she's even good with rope. :naughty:

Pretty good ep otherwise.

Poor Fon-Fon. His mere presence messes everyone around him up. It's not his fault he's a monster. It's their fault for obsessing about it. Of course Nina now realizes that she has a role she can fill next to Fon-Fon. Bait. That's got to just crush her ego. But hey, you can't catch fish without bait, so that makes her an integral part of the team, right?

If Fon-Fon keeps breaking weapons like that, wouldn't it make more sense for him to just carry a box of them around with him when he goes to fight stuff?

Yeah, poor Felli. No more slacking off for her-- the secret is out! Lol.

Well she did ask Layfon, that if he realized she was a woman when he slammed her on that sweet bear-claw improvisation all grapplers aspire to do. I raised my brows like this emoticon :naughty:...

Oh yeah! Layfon was a good sport.

He tried to help out Nina and that particular line was one of the pep talk he was giving to her when she admitted that at one point she didn't think Layfon was human with such superiority in combat. Layfon's particular reply was to tell Nina not to limit herself about what she is capable of by placing such notion as human being has their limitation. If being a human is restraining her growth, then she should stop being a human. Or at least, that's what I've got out of the conversation between them. :)

Btw, I skipped on the ending/opening as I usually do when watching the RAW. Sorry couldn't be much help on that subject matter.

Ep 7 notes. Watched the RAW, waiting for subs.

... I can't avoid from becoming a Regios fanboy now. Damn!

- Layfon gets a new dite but doesn't last for the whole episode. Look what's he's fighting with...
- FelliXFonfon is getting much better and better... good job, Felli.
- Oh yeah this show confirms that it has none of the irritating anime trait "YOU GROPED ME! DIE!" (and Naruki follows Nina and she gets a literally handful of Layfon's manly goodness - on her boobs :B)
- Layfon is just getting cooler and cooler. He's a good sport.
- Oh noes, Harley! Everything's spilled to Sharnid and Nina now.
- ZOMGWTF MONSTAAA--- I mean, FILTH BUGS! Layfon's struggling! But suddenly teamwork saves the day.
- BOOM, HEADSHOT! Err, wait, it's just a distraction?
- "Kore kara mo, yoroshiku onegaishimasu!" (From now on, please take care of me!) gets Nina all tsundere--- I mean, deredere goodness XD
- Sharnid teases Nina on Layfon. Confirmed! Nina is a tsundere.
- Felli faints from using her powers for that long... I mean, for one whole night. Just to make sure Fon-fon is safe...
- Platoon 17 saves the day. :3

And Margafred is correct, it's standard procedure upon falling to 1. Grab the softest target in range or 2. form an arch over said boobage. Bonus points if the female is unclothed. And Double points if another character walks in on the pair.

'cockblocked' hahaha. Seriously Fon-fon and his buddy were just checking Nina's injuries. :innocent: No impure motives what so ever.

Agreed. In this episode, I found everyone very likable. How Nina resolves her own problems. How Sharnid is shown to be actually caring. How Harley can actual be a good person to trust as well. How Felli is now trying her best for her teamates. Everything was just smooth and awesome. Of course, the action wasn't so bad either.

Awesome this episode is the shitz even though I only understand half of what they’re saying lol,



- Adaman sword looked cool when Fon-fon was swinging it, good attack power too bad it has a crappy durability. Then again, Fon-fon’s using it against a freaking mature badass looking dragon-bug so its no wonder.
- Fon-fon is a badass holy shit that dragon-bug looks like it’s ready to take on and eat everything but Fon-fon still went solo and held his ground. Damn I think he could’ve butcher it if not for the durability Adaman sword. Can’t really blame it when Harley thought he’d be only facing against a baby version of a bug but it turns out it’s a semi-mature dragon-bug. Nevertheless Fon-fon went Advent Children Cloud and still put up a good fight.
- Felli smiles, again, because of Fon-fon’s manly talk something about ‘I’m gonna fight till the last spill of my blood as long its about saving lives’. Her character also grow because of Fon-fon especially when he refuses to pull back to Zuellni but hold his ground so she also decided to help with all her power.
- Fon-fon and Narki spar was good and Fon-fon teaches her how to be both a good soldier in combat and a woman, that is with him in being the top tenderly holding your boob.
- Nina was well badass and likeable, her character grew significantly when she acted like a captain and leader she was meant to be leading her men and women and finally victorious. She realizes that she won’t be at Fon-fon’s level anytime soon (or ever) and would be crushed if she face dragon-bug head, so she’s acting what she thinks is best that is being err… decoy or bait. Must’ve been what Fon-fon said back in the hospital and good Nina x Fon-fon moments in the end.
- Fon-fon is being a dumbass again as I predicted being a chick magnet without him realizing it acting goody and sweet talks blabla and unconsciously making Felli, Nina and Narki attracted to him even more. He’s fueling a fiery competition later.
- Engrish is back, Oh Noes! At least they’re small in this one.

Nevertheless this episode definitely centers on Nina’s and her character growth. I like her when she’s not acting like all emo and inferior and thinking the big picture. The only problem is I think she’s gonna be a tsundere hereinafter on to Fon-fon.

So for the relationship development…..

- a bit of Felli x Fon-fon.
- a bit of Narki x Fon-fon.
- a huge chunk of Nina x Fon-fon.

Being a Felli x Fon-fon fan I am, I wish couple of next ep to be centered around their development but seems like the next will be Leerin’s and 17 th platoon against other platoons. The red haired chick finally showed up, I wonder her team wants to hijack Fon-fon from the 17th.



Waiting for subs for the details.

I think Nina's not a tsundere just can't admit that she has romantic feelings to herself...when she realises it then i think she would be straight and clear with it(exept the high possibility that the author is willing to drag the romance longer with a real tsundere attitude...because Nina confessing is a far to great development in terms of romance)
I think Nina found nothing humilating in being Filth Monster bait, because she knew she has no use in actual fighting. So at least be some use in the monster hunting. Why was Felli tired? 1: using psichokinesis over long distance for a long time, 2: actively using her abilities to blast the rocks(again over a long distance).

It's the LayfonxNina show.

Poor Felli, all she wanted to do was to talk. It took a massive 3 minutes for Felli to kick him. Felli doesn't say it but you can almost tell what she's thinking about when she turns her head.

Sharnid ain't useless after all. The dude is a sly ninja. A side of him we haven't seen yet. He's only been a slacker up until now.

Mei doesn't self-destruct near Layfon. I CANNOT BELIEVE IT.

A nice talk between a recovering Nina and Layfon. Best scene of the episode.

Layfon can't 1 shot everything. THANK YOUUUUUUU. Can't pin this on Harley's weapon because the specs are probably higher than what he would have used if not the Adaman Dite.

The rest of the platoon comes to his aid and really, if they applied what they did in this situation to inter-platoon battles they would be a force to be reckoned with if not unbeatable. Maybe next episode.

The little rift between Nina and Layfon is all but gone in the end. Some teasing as a bonus.

Felli faints but it's understandable, since it's probably the first time she has maintained her power for extended periods of time and tapping into her power like she has never done before.

Anyone else think the final scene with them waving to each other was a bit wtf? They had different colored visors and everything!

I'm interested to see what kind of improvement to teamwork this will have during their inter-platoon matches, as they clearly gave it their all during this operation. Though asking for this level of cooperation as default might be asking too much this early.

He had said before that it's not like he can handle anything. However, I still believe it's due to Harley's weapon specs in this episode because the weapon was totally busted by the end showing that's it's not capable of keeping up or even harming the beast. If the weapon was in excellent shape even after all that beating, then I would say it might be due to Layfon. However, it was was really beat up so I would say that it's due to the weapon more than Layfon. There's a phrase that a good writer does not depend on the pen their use but that phrase actually is true only to an extent. Similar to how if a weak sword breaks during a battle, no matter how strong a sword user is, he can't do nothing without a sword.

Well I looked at official anime page and there are few new pictures from ep8 and well

At the beggining there will be little screen time with Leerin ^^ it seems that the queen will give order to the silver-haired guy and the green-haired guy to watch over her.... maybe Leein finaly decides to go to Zueli that's why queen gived her protection.... time will show but more leerin is good for me ^^ (hope she will soon reach Zueli to reunite with Layfon)

Maybe queens objective is to awaken something in Leerin, memories of that shinrora reysu..... dont know but I hope that Leerin will run away from Grendan and go to Layfon ^^

Indeed,

Even the Adaman sword couldn't even keep up with Fon-fon's insane kei's outburst. So much for looking cool testing it at the start of the ep. But it's not all that bad when the sword manages to cut some of the parts and put some amount of damage on the dragon-bug before it finally breaks from a final blow as Fon-fon said.

I think reason the swords seemed sucks lies with the following:

1) The swords durability was set and meant to penetrate the armor or skin of normal bugs. The bug Fon-fon’s facing is somewhat a high level bug with thick and solid density of armored-skin or shell; much higher than anticipated. This causes the sword to wear away quickly.

2) It also depends how Fon-fon properly utilizing his kei. The sword probably just couldn't sustain and channel the amount of Fon-fon's kei efficiently and effectively against that particular high level bug. Which caused it to overload and eventually breaks when used continuously.

Personally I think the sword was well made and will serve as an excellent weapon against lower level bugs. Its just unfortunate that the sword’s debut was against a juggernaut, which made it met it’s fate sooner.

Hey just caught something strange. In ep 6 if you notice Fon-fon and Narki’s height are about the same. But in ep 7 Fon-fon’s like……. One half inches taller then her. Wtf glitch?

So for the relationship development…..

- a bit of Felli x Fon-fon.
- a bit of Narki x Fon-fon.
- a huge chunk of Nina x Fon-fon.



I wouldn't say that it is a huge chunk, she just blushed a little :rolleyes:
Still it is a step in the right direction for the two.

But damn was that scene between Layfon and Naruki smoking hot, and with her being so understanding to laugh it off as an accident (like what normal people do). But that probably wouldn't have happened if she fell for him just that bit more. Trust Layfon to be the strong type who sweeps women off their feet :rolleyes:

Personally I thought that weapon upgrade sucked for Layfon...it needs to be made more durable before being able to be used in actual combat.

This time it was a fricking armoured dragon bug he had to fight against, kowaiiii~

I'd say it was a good experience for the weaker parts of the group, namely for Nina who seems to have finally gotten over her complex and might start to appear with the group more often. She is strong but pushing herself to the point of collapse is bad. Though she should have learnt her lesson now.

And for a tomboy-like character to blush, she was very cute ^^'

Surely a small chunk, but she already blushed in episode 5 :heh: she's blushing again! :heh:

Well, we can't have it both ways, either the weapon sucks and he has a hard time, or the weapon owns and the action is 10 seconds long. Again, he would have used something worse if not the adaman dite. He used what was available to him, it wasn't a great upgrade, but it's still better than the specced up training dite he would have used otherwise. The Adaman dite did it's job, so it wasn't entirely useless. Although I gotta say, he didn't exactly prepare for the worst case scenario, either.

Since he probably used a heavens' blade level dite (assuming this is the top level weapon at this point in time, uberover9000levelentirecontinents type of weapon) for so long, anything worse than one would probably show wear/malfunction/pretty much shatter.

I thought this episode had a more "serious" feel to it, they got the fan service out of the way QUICK and then snuck it back in at the end.

At the beggining there will be little screen time with Leerin ^^ it seems that the queen will give order to the silver-haired guy and the green-haired guy to watch over her.... maybe Leein finaly decides to go to Zueli that's why queen gived her protection.... time will show but more leerin is good for me ^^ (hope she will soon reach Zueli to reunite with Layfon)

Nice links, by the way. One gives you info about the first half of the episode, the other gives you info about the second half. From what I could make of the animencenter link, someone's going to get a really nasty surprise when they investigate that dead city.

layfon: don't abandon us...
nina: l will never abandon you....
geeze felis listening in on a private conversation? why couldn't you just have died from exhaustion in this ep...?
ah but watching the massive ownage of felis was indeed great.

Dammit, Layfon needs to get a weapon that doesn't break from him using it with his full power. The Dites are useful for being about to change form, but they just can't hold up against the rough usage they get when Layfon is fighting Filth monsters.

I thought the fanservice was kinda funny and random. Lol, I knew from when that scene started that a boy-gropes-girl-while-they-spar moment was inevitable. Her reaction was unexpected though. :heh:

And how the hell did Felli get into the room without them noticing? I mean, did she come in through the window? Or can she teleport? Cause there's just no logical explanation as to how she could have walked in the door and around the bed to the other side without SOMEONE noticing her....

Thanks for the links, there are nice images! ;)
Anyway I'm not really interested in Leering very much, I'm interested in the relationship between her and Layfon. It has never been clearly stated in anime, so far, why Layfon was exiled, but we know two things:

1) The queen had high expectations from Layfon. This coming from someone even stronger than an heaven blade says all about how Layfon's strength, which nothing forbids to grow even more!
2) She refuses to give the twelth heaven blade seat to anyone... I understand you don't find an heaven blade level warrior evrey day, but it isn't possible that ALL OF THE WARRIOR of Grendan are crap. So there should be at least ONE more near than others to heaven blade level. It seems the queen doesn't want to give that seat to someone other than Layfon, like she expects him to come back one day.

I hope this is the case because this way we could hope Layfon will gain back his heaven blade in the future episodes! :)

What's this 'Himatsubushi' fansub? Havent heard about them and I find it odd that they start subbing from ep 7 instead from the start like most subbers. Nevertheless are theier quality/translation/sound whatever good?
I don't know them but the quality seems good...

Nina is really improving her status as a captain for me in this ep plus the sniper dude actually has some skills too bad his small gun cant really do dmg to the filth monster but heck at least he tried.

The sniper dude didn't want to injury the filth bug, but only attract his attention. If you give him guns of higher caliber he should be able to hurt the bugs I guess.

Dammit, Layfon needs to get a weapon that doesn't break from him using it with his full power. The Dites are useful for being about to change form, but they just can't hold up against the rough usage they get when Layfon is fighting Filth monsters.

I agree... but I think this is a plot device to nerf Layfon's godly power at the beginning, because otherwise there would be no story to tell... Layfon would just roam around owning the bugs like nothing! :heh:
In the future he will gain back his heaven blade dite perhaps: if Leerin goes to where Layfon is then the queen could give the dite back to Layfon in order to protect her. ;)

I missed this I guess.

IMO, yes given the proper equipments and some amazing endurance (if Sharnid is capable of) he might be able to pull off a Bullet Hell to that Filth Bug but then again as ipernorris said, giving it a dreaded Thousand Bullets of Hell isn't his main purpose. Else he'd come with an even scarier arsenal, if Zuellni has it.

Remember: The dites just weapons for delivering the kei energy directly... so i think even if he got a bigger gun(he got one at ep5...and if i remember correctly it not even mada a scratch on the larvae-bug...what are you exepting against a juvenile matured form monster?)
I hope the team will be training together again(with Layfon's instructions:P)

The main thing I liked about this EP:

Nina awakes to Layfon watching over her alone.

Felli awakes to.... Harley.

lololol GG Felli.

Hahaha, nice to see some Nina growth and it appears her feelings for Layfon will probably take off now though I highly doubt she'll be directly competing for Layfon's attention like Felli/Mei do. Plus when the sensei/pupil relationship reverses things always get frisky in anime.

I thought the action scene was a little boring TBH. It was broken up by dialogue way too much to keep a good pace. Still the character developement was good so I liked it overall.

And in ep 1 a regular or even better version of mature form Filth Monster(special name Limbeekoon).

The one in ep 7 is Mature Stage 1. I assume the one that the Heaven Blades took care off in ep 1 is at it's Semi Last Mature Stage considering it had the ability to regenerates.

Dammit, Layfon needs to get a weapon that doesn't break from him using it with his full power. The Dites are useful for being about to change form, but they just can't hold up against the rough usage they get when Layfon is fighting Filth monsters.

With viewers have already known his past as a Heaven Blade at this point and how strong Layfon is, when I rewatched episode 1 suddenly everything made sense. In episode 1 Layfon's using a yellow light saber with a sheer resemblance of Trans-Arm Sword Saber Gundam 00 had with long range.

I'm guessing Layfon will eventually get his heaven blade dite weapon which he was using in ep 1, a badass sword with capability to sustain an enormous amount of kei and channels them effectively. Lol Layfon is becoming even broken if it really happens.

Her arrival will probably make all the girls finally make fiercesome moves on Layfon, which I hope ofcourse will be spearheaded by Felli. :p

This episodes confirms to me one more thing:

... that is, the reason why Nina is somehow performing bad in terms of raw power.

Bad kei footing. In other words she's not really that weak as how she (and we) might have thought, but the way she forces output on her kei doesn't allow her to exert the best of her strengths into her kei.

And statistics!

- Nina flag officially triggered (Thanks Sharnid. Your words are now making it canon. :heh: XD)
- Felli flag rises further
- For the two flags above, let's make a situation where the Filth Bug gets defeated, but Layfon received somehow a very painful injury enough for her team mates to worry? I'd like to gauge Felli's and Nina's reactions (having Mei in would be cute too).

... I think if anyone bothers about the links to Regios's future episodes we might already have a fanservice episode coming and what's more, they're telling us episodes away :D

great now even the anime itself is tempting us to get spoiled. :p

No hardsubbed KFX. I don't care about KFX anyway. It's softsubbed lyrics instead.

Back to the episodes... I can now declare and conclude to myself that this series is just getting better and better, and it contains a lot of elements I want to see I want to see in a single series - minus the "battle theme" -_-.

Just watch himatsubusi sub.

There's some questions popped up in my mind after watching this Ep. First thing first, how do they train their Kei? There certainly have been parts about utilizing Kei and psychic ability most effectively, but how do you increase it (I know Felli power can't increase, but what about Kei?)

Second, what do Filth monsters eat? Doesn't seem like there's much food in Regios. The one in this Ep must have waited for days till a tiny human came to eat him. Is it a flaw? Or later on will it be explained (in the novel, perhaps? Like how Filth monsters can...absorbing sunlight for example. Or someone is feeding them :help:).

The preview for next Ep seems interesting, as the two characters in Ep 1 reappear. Though they still don't look like antagonists to me.

By the way, when will the Engrish Episodes end? What bugs me the most now isn't the Engrish anymore, but that its animation somehow seems more fluidly than CSR itself (except for the girl's face. Oh, she looks downright creepy :uhoh:)

If this comes even close to that, I'll guess I'll have to make Sharnid snipe everyone out of it XD

School Days reversed. Sharnid will have sex with Nina (can't imaging him going with Felli, Mei or....Leerin :twitch:) Layfon will snap out of it, "restoration" Nina's head off, then get on a roaming bus and escape back to Grendan :cool:

Hima is the unofficial release since one of their members (the final encoder I think) is in the hospital. They just put their script to a RAW. What's funny is this unofficial will probably have a higher video and audio quality than their official. :heh:

I'd say you can a strong kei by either properly train it, or given by birth. The thing that you could do is how to manage your kei properly and use it efficiently.

Fon-fon is around 15, quite young but already had a enormous amount of Kei and strong enough to earn him the title Heaven Blade at the age around 10-12 years old, a special and priviliged position which are currently held by young and old people if you look at ep 1.

Felli if I'm not mistaken is a nen-i user instead kei, meant as combat intelligence and reconnasaince.

Well, i know that. The thing is how do you train increase the total amount of Kei you have. Just physical training sounds dumb to me. If not fixed from birth, normally either it will increase naturally (Demon and Youkai), or suddenly receive massive power from holy/unholy relic, or there will be special breathing/self-purifying method, etc, etc...

Well if you put it that way, in Layfon’s case I guess he’s born and gifted with it. Seeing how he manage to be a Heaven Blade at such young age. All he had to do back then is to learn managing it and channels them properly. While on upgrading/increasing it, I guess for people like Layfon it’ll just increase naturally with regards on the kei flow inside his body.

I’m guessing all Heaven Blades are like Layfon, they were gifted by birth for such an enormous kei. Layfon mentioned to Nina to train about kei footing, but I assume that kind training could apply to almost anybody who’s a military artist regardless how much kei they had.

But could an average joe with a normal kei could increase his’ into a Heaven Blade level or at least higher with a normal training? I have no idea.

I’m actually curious how they grade students or warriors in Zuellni. It seems like people in the military arts are the highest caste given that they receive almost no tuition fee and considered to be an elite if you’re in a platoon. Is this ‘grading’ also depends on the amount of kei they had? If that’s the case, what if a person has an enormous amount of raw kei but don’t know how to properly utilize it? Is that considered to be an elite?

For Heaven Blades, I guess they have a large amount of Kei, and know how to use it effectively in battle.

Perhaps because she's much more of a friend than anything. Even how she reacts is just really friendly and nothing more than that.

Actually, in the CSR manga it is revealed that apart from being distributed in platoons and battling each other to determine their positions in inter-city matches they also have to take the normal curriculum like how the rest of the students do. They all study different streams of arts whilst being educated under one general curriculum, and that's from my assumption.

As for platoon match-ups, I think it's how you do battles and how you fare with it. If you have terrible kei control despite having a monstrous amount of it but still can manage battles greatly then you are already good, what's left is to hone your kei control to a better degree.

Heh. It makes sense if they also have to take the normal curriculum as well as the military curriculum.

Wow, that makes Layfon seem more of a monster. Not only does he have a ridiculous amount of kei, he even have a lot of control.

Of course he does! Else he won't go spouting that "kei footing" and the "disorder in Nina's kei footing" to her in this episode, and any Dites he wield will break as soon as he taps into his Kei power due to his enormous power XD :heh:

This is plausible and I agree. So Zuellni has a general curriculum that requires all students to follow and participate regardless their specialization (be it military, general arts, liberal arts or any other). Like college in general (Zuellni Academic/College City, DUH).

Well, each arts seems to have their own grouping as well. Example for military arts, seems like it’s divided into:

(i) military, which include soldiering and hence participate in inter-platoon city matches or defense of the city against Filth Bugs should the situation arises. So far they work as team in form of squad or platoon with number designation. This seems like the ‘elite’ class on the military arts specialization. Again this group is also divided into several role such as kei user (fon-fon, Nina) or nen-I user (Felli).

(ii) civil order, which is to maintain order within the city premises. I guess this is the city police where Narki fits in.

(iii) other, if there are any that we don’t know yet. Heck what if Heaven Blades are considered one man army and have a different role?

Now where does Harley fits in this. He’s with the Alchemic Research Lab, I’m guessing it’s also part of the military arts considering they seems responsible on research and developing dites, weapons for kei and nen-I users.

Anyway, I believe that other than military arts, each arts have their own grouping as well. We just don’t know it yet.

As for platoon match-ups, I think it's how you do battles and how you fare with it. If you have terrible kei control despite having a monstrous amount of it but still can manage battles greatly then you are already good, what's left is to hone your kei control to a better degree.

What immediately pops in my mind is this:

A guy with huge raw kei:

a. - He knows how to manage it, and wins matches = he’s good.
- He knows how to manage it, and lose matches = he’s bad.

b. – He doesn’t know how to manage it, and wins matches = he’s good.
- He doesn’t know how to manage it, and loses matches = he’s bad.

I guess this way it depends on the result, but somehow it would be unfair on point a if he loses lol. I’m still thinking about this anyway…..

Well you wouldn't be having this discussion if it wasn't for episode 7, probably.:heh:

The thing that most surprised me about this series is that it got its own sub-forum. I only just realized this occurred so you can imagine my slight excitement. :D

Actually I think Felli might have fainted from exhaustion. If you'll recall, Fon-Fon was fighting that Filth Monster for more than a day. My guess is that she didn't go to sleep at all until they were coming back, and not entirely by her choice. They don't exactly hide the fact that Felli has feelings for Fon-Fon, or at least she cares about his well-being a good deal. :p I noticed some, at least slight, confusion about this so I thought I'd leave my guess as to why it happened.

The best thing about Regios is the fact that it actually has a girl who is smart enough to not mind having her breasts grabbed accidentally. In fact, I think she almost encourages Fon-Fon to grab her. :naughty:

germanturkey
2009-02-25, 18:45
yeah, Nina is a tsundere. she's still rather annoying. I still like Felli and Naruki more than her. I'm going for Lillin and Layfon, but i can't really solidify my choice until she gets introduced. It seems she has some screen time next ep. so i'm all for that.

Contrary to the type of character that i dislike, Nina is somewhat useful, compared to the type that wants to be, but isn't. so that gets her some points. but her attitude and desire to do more than she knows she can gets her in trouble. like this ep. "this is the world you've always seen?" she's probably like, OMGWTF when the monster was about to eat her.

Felli won major points this ep. she obviously cares for him. i wouldn't mind it the series went this way.

next ep seems to be one of those "i'm a strong guy, gar. i don't like this new strong guy, so i'll piss on him. but then the new strong guy is like 100x more gar than me and will probably have to save me." speaking from the perspective of the 5th platoon leader.

I have to give it Layfon to fight that long and that hard was worthy of praise. He strategy was sound too. The whole point was to protect the city the filth monster can fly get rid of its wings and keep the S O B on the ground and take it out on the ground.

It was nice to see the squad work together even Felli got involved and exhausted herself. This episode proved that no matter how strong you are team work is always a great option. Once again the plan was sound the damn monster was so big trap in a small space where it cant move. It sucks that someone had to be the bait but it worked. It was one of the simplest and oldest strategies in the book. Take away an enemies advantage by forcing it to fight in a space where it cant utilize its abilities.

I liked this episode because of squad coming together and winning big as a team.

TrueKnight
2009-02-25, 19:48
Fon-fon mentioned that he even doesn't know how to work as a team because he always work alone most of the time. This episode teaches Fon-fon how to work as a team with Nina on the helm and rest of the squad. I guess when against mature Filth Bugs the team will have to go again with the formula: Nina - bait, Sharnid - distraction, Felli - surveillance, Harley – blacksmith, Fon-fon – went for the kill.

"i'm a strong guy, gar. i don't like this new strong guy, so i'll piss on him. but then the new strong guy is like 100x more gar than me and will probably have to save me."

I hope Fon-fon kicks his ass hard next ep but I'll reserve my judgment on his character. I'm more curious about this 'Lost City' they mention.

Although I had to say, this tactic is very risky. If they always stick to that tactic and let's say their tactics failed - Nina is of course the first to be affected, and if given the worst-case scenario possible - that'll mean despair for me as a follower of this series. :heh:

That kind of tactic seems somehow too linear to me...

After seeing the next ep. preview...

I remember the 5th Platoon's capt. watching Layfon from a school window with the redhead in ep.1, seems like he already knows quite a bit about him. Also, he shares the same surname with the White haired brawler from ep1. (saw this guy's name on wiki :D)

Of course, overall I was being sarcastic.

For now that’s the current role the rest of the squad could do against a mature filth bugs without actually getting in Fon-fon and Felli’s way. Fon-fon hasn’t got any dite that could sustain his kei and had to rely on crappy ones. This sadly somehow led Fon-fon’s reliance to the rest of the squad to cover that weakness.

But let’s say Fon-fon receives his Heaven Blade weapon back or a dite capable to sustain his kei output, I believe eventually he could went solo the dragon-bug.

That’s what I’m hoping for. Fon-fon’s like an insurance making sure nothing will go wrong, even if Zuellni have to face similar opponents like the dragon-bug again. While using this handicap, Zuellni should face/hunt/leveling up on middle-bugs as many as possible. This is a chance for its military to increase and train its combat experience with casualties as minimal as possible, or even none at all with Fon-fon’s around.

Renegade334
2009-02-27, 07:00
Probably it's due the monster's fast regeneration...
Regeneration, inappropriate Dite AND the fact that the last time (we've and/or it was mentioned) Layfon had to tackle a Filth Monster, he was part of a team of three Heavens Blades. And even with their numbers, they still had trouble felling their target until they cornered it and hit it at its weakest state (the mother bug in ep05 was confined inside a cavern and busy laying eggs, so I wouldn't use it as a trusty reference either). Although one could point out that it did happen a while ago already and Layfon had the time to grow and buff up in the meantime, the Filth Monster in ep1 did remain a tough kill. In ep07, Layfon was fighting alone with an experimental weapon that Harley was still working on when Kallian gave the green light for a preemptive strike and ordered Layfon out.

As such, I wouldn't start saying that Layfon can kill a full-fledged Filth Beast in just one fell swipe - or slash, if you prefer it that way. Those massive creepy-crawlies are proven to be stubbornly resilient and even Layfon implied that it was possible for his eel-like opponent to regenerate its lost wing in one day, minimum - after which it'd start stalking Zuellni and looking for a snack. Granted, it's still a young Filth Monster, but it was pissed AND hungry...meaning that Layfon wasn't having an easy time either. Not to mention that fighting nonstop for an entire day does depletes one's kei supplies, no matter how large they are. Back in ep01, when you last see the other Heavens Blades talking together in Grendan, it's already sunset, meaning that it'd take at least a half-day for three HB to take down a mature FM.

willyvereb
2009-02-27, 07:26
The last one was a fresh mature form FB...and the first one an old mature form FB that can regenerate like crazy.
I guess Layfon has no problemn with fighting a day long, because his sword can't handle his full kei output so he didn't fought with full power.
The FB in ep was anot even mature form so it was easy run.
I hope we'll find out something from the faceless fighters and Dixero(the red haired guy from ep 3)

TrueKnight
2009-02-27, 09:28
I don't think he was even using the Adamandite against this monster.

Actually, he was. He mentioned 'restoration A-D' in the middle of battle.

Anyway,

The Filth Monster or Limbekoon that we saw in ep 1 seems have the ability to regenerate, produced larvae, and go on the offensive at the same time. It took three Heaven Blades, equipped with their Heaven Blade dites to take it down. The Heaven Blades managed to cut through or pierce the Limbekoons armors or skins with ease with their Heaven Blade dites.

The Filth Monster that Layfon faced in ep 7 was in its 1st stage and we already saw that Layfon could hold it on a day. When Felli asked him to retreat he simply refuses and then said that he could play with it as long as he like be it 2 or 3 more days. Layfon uses his Adaman dite that we could assume not as strong as or far weaker than his former Heaven Blade dite, because it simply did not have the same penetrating power as a Heaven Blade dite had.

So there is a huge difference between the Filth Monster on ep 1 and ep 7 in sheer power and strength where I think the Limbekoon is a Filth Monster already in its semi-last stage and far stronger than the ep 7 dragon bug.

Based on the above assessment, I think Layfon simply could not hold against the ep 7 Filth Monster because his dite simply couldn’t keep up with him. Layfon will probably capable on holding or even defeating the ep 7 Filth Monster even though it’ll take days, provided that he’s using his Heaven Blade dite.

They take Ayako's translation and put it to a HD RAW. Sometimes they miss a line here and there plus the timing is off a little too.

I really don't understand why Ayako uses such a crappy RAW and crappy codecs to encode their release. They even make it an .avi too. If it were an mkv we could extract the script and use our own RAW to make up for their crappy one (and 'whatever's' release would be better too).

This was an awesome episode with some good laughs, some great action and I felt Nina's character came a long way in my eyes with this showing, she seemed more human and not so much a troll of the military. I laughed when Layfon was training in the gym and had his hand on that girls boob, lol her response was priceless and it brought some much needed humor to this series, but my favorite part was the battle with the filth monster, that thing looked vicious but they were able to defeat him with not much effort once the team showed up. Seeing Nina over do her training and end up in the hospital put some depth into her character and to see her admit it all was because Layfon was too powerfull and she wanted to be better was a great moment. I gave this episode a 9 in the poll, it deserved it in my opinion, I am looking foward to episode 9 and futher!
