Screw logic! It's all about having fun and this show delivers that just well

Illogical as it is, I still look forward to the rest of this adventure. At least the girls are cute so I won't be bored.

Seriously anime doesn't need logic as long as it delivers. For me it delivered plenty and probably in my eye the most enjoyable one this season. It handles humour, action and character interaction in equal measure, I cannot fault for its goofiness that runs in the anime. Not one character feels obnoxious and that helps the enjoyment even further. I didn't expect Kazuki to take center stage so soon in the episode. I thought it would be gradual change.

So the Ganymede likes to penetrate from behind huh?

Also, I feel like the 3 sisters are definitely superhuman. There's no way any normal human could have made the jump that Hazuki and Hozuki made, and a normal human would have splattered from a fall like what Hozuki went through.

To a large degree, Galilei Donna is about a bunch of colorful characters going on a silly but larger-than-life adventure together. The quirkiness and goofiness is actually part of its charm, because it contributes to that "zany adventure!" feel. It's very Disney-esque.

It's not for everybody, of course, but it does mean that it's not best to evaluate the show the way one would a more grounded sci-fi tale. The goldfish mecha in Episode 1 is a tip-off that this show would have a child-like imagination to in.

As long as Galilei Donna's core characters are generally likable and fun to watch, this show will also be fun to watch. Thankfully, that is the case so far, at least for me.

It's not like Umetsu has done ridiculously implausible scenes before!

Hey did you know that Galileo fused adamantium plates to his skull, neck, and spinal cord through self-surgery to make himself virtually indestructible?

As expected of Galileo's descendants.

Being that it's so silly, I could have done without a little girl falling from a building. Even if she got better.

I don't mind the fact that the little girl fell. It's more the fact that it seemed to result in nothing more than fever that caught me off.

They made the fall look rather severe (especially since she landed head-first, and then bounced about a lot). That might have been a mistake, yeah.

That, and what Haak said - Making it look more like a fever than a concussion.

One doesn't get fever just from fall, but it can be result of fractures or inner bleeding. And considering that mini doctor can do operations, such injuries are not unplasuble. Only thing we could confirm is she doesn't have open fractures.

And that it was apparently alright to move her (without even a cast) shortly after. Of course, it could be due to the sci-fi doctor...

Sort of, but it doesn't seem silly in a very audacious way. I rarely that surprised by the series, with the exception of the initial reveal of the goldfish mecha (also the names in this series. Herman Hans....really?).

Plus, the bit where she fell was something of a radical tone shift. Also, I don't really think I could ever define whiney annoying one as "Silly". She's silly in the same way that overly angsty teenagers always seem to be silly, but thse's not over the top or anything.

Also I think it would be hard to call any series with as radical a tone shift as the scene where she falls to her (if this weren't completely dumb) demise.

Neither of girls showed even sign of knowing basic first aid. It doesn't mnetter whether it was correct thing to do or not, only that they did that.

I am beginning to think this is a spin-off of the Hetrodyne universe, where Europe is destined to be ruled by Mad Science.

We are getting deus ex machina plot devices fairly frequently, and the whole quest they are on doesn't make any sense to me.

What message could have value after several hundred years?

A pirate treasure map? The meaning of life? The hideout of the Illuminati?

This seems to have little to do with Galileo's known life and achievements in physics and astronomy. It's more like the author has this fantasy of what science and genius are like, and is using Galileo as a canvas to draw on.

Galileo wasn't just a lone genius, he was speaking in his published works to a community of scholars, some of whom entertained similar ideas.

This was an era when astrology was still mixed up with astronomy, and chemistry with alchemy.

Galileo's strength was in observing the world as it was, without being all bound up by previous ideas.

In a larger sense, this story line represents the fallacy of individual effort which seems common in anime/manga: the idea that one individual can do anything with sufficient effort.

The depictions of science or engineering in anime are rarely realistic. The actual space programs which have put men and women into orbit have been tremendous team efforts, and they have not culminated in a single flight but in a whole range of activity.

The Manhattan project, which created the first nuclear weapons, involved the action of not one mad genius, but thousands of people, dozens of distinguished scientists (past and future Nobel prize winners), and considerable industrial resources. Einstein, while he was involved in drawing attention the the possibility of nuclear weapons, was never involved in their development.

Peter Higgs, who predicted the Higgs Boson was a visionary theorist, but it took almost 50 years and international efforts to confirm that theory. "Big Science" is the reality of our time, rather than lone genius.

Galileo, Kepler, Newton were outstanding figures in their times, but they were also part of a community of what would become the natural sciences.

Calling it now: Hozuki is a robot. No way does anyone fall headfirst from a tall building onto a pile of metal and live to tell the tale, let alone not break any bones or even bleed. Apparently, a bad case of tetanus is all she got from it. Must've been all the rust on those old cars...

Suspension of disbelief on this and other conveniences aside, I still find this show entertaining. Anna is looking mighty suspicious there, with her searching those bed bunks. What does she want with those relics anyway, and why isn't anyone questioning why she seems to know so much?

My theory is that the so called descendants of galileo are not actually his descendants but modified humans who are designed to be superhumans.

I suspected Anna to be a spy from her first interaction with Hozuki so no surprise there really.
