Goro trying to comfort Ichigo after her witnessing Hiro ogling 02 in her sexy swimsuit? Yeah, I could see something like that happening.

02 looks a bit "nerfed" on swimsuit, I thought she was bigger than that judging by the way she looks on the red suit.

A beach episode, huh? Well if nothing else, it'll give Yabuki some good material to work with.

It gives the authors/animators time to do the rest and saves on budget, which they probably need to after that last episode. It was gorgeous.

Mostly just for anime with fanservice in its premise. The more serious shows or the non-otaku shows do not follow that "rule" for the most part.

I will treat it as a recap and will do the same to most of the recaps out there. Skip it
It will probably be teen melodrama shipping with over 9000 fanservice shots. Not for me but will help this to sell while saving budget and giving the animators a little break. They deserve it since the animation quality is indeed fantastic and coherent for most of the time. It's a pleasure for my eyes . I'm excited about the new arcs to come tho!

Just caught up with this series, and wow!

It's the second most Evangelion-influenced anime. I don't think I've ever felt this much déjà-vu while watching anime.

And that's just fine. It's been a while since anyone took a shot at repeating that success.

Not saying that's all there is to it, of course. The studio is pulling out ALL the stops to sell this thing - the brilliant first episode, lightning pacing, the top-tier waifu ensemble, the gratuitous fanservice...

There is also a strong sense of one-upmanship in this anime. Standard simply will not do, everything must have some contrivance attached to it. Be it butt control, bizarre overdesigned mechas, tetris monsters, retarded terminology, or the incomprehensible sci-fi fantasy setting.

For the time being, I'm entertained. It does seem like something that'll be crushed under its own weight, though.

I'm behind on the series right now, but I can't wait to get caught up and then watch Nearly On Red's analyses afterward. Seriously, thank you Twi for posting that initial vid of his, because while he is extremely elaborate and perhaps even over-analytical... I love that sort of stuff.

The more views the guy gets, the better. I didn't notice half the things he mentioned until it was pointed out.

A beautiful episode. Squad 13 united as a whole and enjoying the time of their lives.

The part about kissing and discovering what it truly means will probably be one of the main focus for some of the upcoming episodes between certain characters. The fan service was expected with the beach setting. Honestly, I think this episode is one of the more meaningful ones for this series so far. It's also obvious that Goro feels a sense of attraction towards Ichigo now. Speaking of Ichigo, I'm not sure what direction her relationship with Hiro will steer towards. She still regards Hiro as a very special person but there's also Zero Two who became close to him. Kinda curious to see how they develop Kokoro and Mitsuru's relationship in this series too.

Oh and Zero Two looked great as usual!

For a common and very cliche beach episode this was pretty enjoyable, how the guys discovered more about the old civilization and the scene with the whole kissing stuff opens a bit more to explore.

Each time some meaningful things happen 02 starts to show some of her real feelings, is almost like a bittersweet part of her because there is cleary some happiness mixed with sadness. Ichigo is stil trying to go for Hiro, that's not a good thing considering that at this point the most important person for him is 02. Oh and Goro... he's really doomed regarding Ichigo.

Not the best episode but not bad either.
