... You really have to explain this to me, because so far I see no difference between this Cinque and the one from the previous season.

Now, once you guys get over the shock of The Beckshin, time to analyze it!

First things first, go rewatch Madoka and Symphogear. Now, compare that with the henshin. What do you get?

Yes! Both Madoka and Hibiki henshins are seen here together!

Firstly, the scanner & equipping, Becky appearing in 2 copies, and the bright orange lights, all of them resemble Hibiki's song. I could almost hear Cou-sama sing GUNGNIR GEKISHOU!

And then the 2nd part of Becky donning her Hero Gear and activating the Attack Broom resembles Madoka's one and only henshin.

The Ao Yuuki is strong in this one.

Its decided! Becky's Final Form Ride is Goddess Pastillage!

2 episodes and acting like he did in the first season means he's worse than the first season now?

Woah woah now... Now you're just seem like you're attacking the show for the sake of attacking the show. I was just merely talking about his name and yet you completely twisted it around and use it to continue to attack the show that you have been doing for the past few pages.

@ MeisterBabylon
The Beckshin eh? I guess that's what we will call it officialy from now on? How does that sound everyone? Sink and the Beckshin!!

Still think that the Cinque (wow this guy has had quite the variety of spellings) name issue still comes second to the WTF Becky transformation sequence. I thought the delay was embarassing for Becky, but let's just hope that whole thing wasn't aired for the crowd . That was pretty nuts for sure.

What's wrong with what I said? Honestly he was cool in the first season because he was unique, now we have 2 more characters that are like him (heroes) but are actually better. What this season has shown is how weak Cinque really is as a MC. Nanami has been there for 1 day and has already learned more than Cinque, who took the entire whole first season practicing to get better, however, it only took Nanami 1 episode (5 secs) to get on his level or better. I would not be surprised if by the next episode they show Becky beating him around showing him who the boss is.

Nanami and Becky may be able to fight (not sure on Becky's skills), but Cinque has something that they still lack. Knowledge of Flonyard customs and culture, and that's just as big a bargaining chip, if not bigger, on this stage.

you also remember that nanami is his senpai, and has beaten him in competitions back on earth.

cinque has to learn all the skills be himself, sure the residents were able to teach him a bit they work/learn differently from humans.

besides, this was most likely done for convenience's sake, i don't think ppl would wanna watch half a season dedicated to training again.

It's going to be interesting in the future, as I've been starting to have more direct channels to these production companies, to my surprise it went quite well a couple of weeks ago (which I can't specify exactly), if it all goes well I just might have some influence with anime in the near future

I believe you are unfair in your assessment. It didn't take Sink a whole season to get better, that poor, poor child had to endure 5 episodes that covered only 1 day in his life on Flonyard, in that one day he helped to defeat the strongest in the land, he got led around town by a tsundere, and by nightfall, he was about to take a bath when a disastrophe struck and he was called into battle again. He fought the sibling of Galette's strongest to a draw due to outside interference, and before he could have fun in the Galette castle, he had to frisk the Millimeter away to her concert, which he couldn't enjoy much.

I'm going to quote some guy in a movie that was supposed to be smart. "Nanami was better than him before he went to Flonyard, Nanami was better than him while he was in Flonyard, because even in Flonyard, Nanami is better than him", considering that in such a short amount of time, she was able to fight Biscotti's Hero to a standstill.

It wasn't that she learned more than Sink did, she was already better than him. If you give a grenadier a sniper rifle, he could fire it yeah, but he might be shitty with it. Give that same sniper rifle to a sharpshooter, and that rifle just might be happy. Now does this make Sink a weak MC? Naw, I don't think so. They're just having fun! This isn't some kind of gladiator game where the loser is banished to some sort of space prison several galaxies away. Since Leon-sama is the strongest, does that make Sink weak? Does that degrade his value as the leading character subjected to side character status? Nope, as long as that Millimeter is around he's still the MC, he's still going to be glomped by Yukikaze, Eclair is still going to be tsun to him, and all of this is because of him, and I don't think for one moment he's a weak MC just because his friends are now like him. It could only make him..... stronger.

It's just two short episodes, just wait till next ep before we start claiming Nanami as the strongest in Flonyard.

Guess who's going to get their clothes destroyed?
Spoiler for is it underwear or is it not?:


Now why the heck are we concerned about Sink anyways? Everyone knows this character is the best part of the series:
Spoiler for if you open this spoiler link, you are automatically her fan:

Two episodes can sometimes be enough to tell if the writing is going to be bad. Just saying.

Cinque wasn't explicitly shown getting better at being a Hero in 16 days though. He was already impressive enough the first day, which was covered in the first five episodes, and the only thing different in the latter half was that he had to go toe to toe with killer spirits. However, many of the amazing feats he was doing, he was already doing doing so the day he was summoned, like creating Tornader, owning mooks with just his hands and feet, or firing Seal Cannons right off the bat.

Also, Nanami being better than Cinque is a complaint? Even during the first season, she's already said to be better than him. She did best him in the Iron Athletics they both competed in, and she is his mentor afterall. As for Becky, we haven't seen enough of what she's capable of as a mage to determine how much better she's supposed to be.

Not really. There have been many anime which had excellent story for the first few episodes, then took a nosedive as time progressed. And the opposite is also true: there have been titles with mediocre or middling starts that suddenly shine in the latter parts. There are many things that can change between weeks that an anime starts and ends on the production end, and they can either be for the best or for the worst.

Is this the pv for the next episode? where can you watch this? the episode itself doesn't have a pv for next episode.

I'd say you've already affected production companies. Look at this season and the season for the last little while and tell me there you haven't been purposefully channeling your "feelings" with that direct channel!

It's actually from an earlier PV before the series aired, which has scenes for future episodes. This one:



(Vid cuts out at the end unfortunately)

If you click the image, it will open a link to the preview, click on the only preview that has Ricochet in it (titled "放送直前PV"), and it will stream. Need a connection speed of at least 2mbps to enjoy

I think I better not say anymore, or else you guys might be asking me "why are girls in anime getting bigger these days than the last decade?"
