|If you are reading this post then it means you are either giving Robotic;Notes a trial run or you are completely sold like me? So far I think the two main characters have sold me, but I know anything can happen after a few episodes. As always you can listen to me and Jrow talk about all the random things found in the episode and we’re joined by Overcooled as well! So sit back and listen to the madness of episode two.|
Some assembly required
Aki-“Yo dawg don’t make me take you apart!” Robot-“One of these days I will defeat you!”
Kai-“why are there extra screws left over?” Aki-“Uh don’t worry! It should work afterwards I think.”
Aki-“I need a crazy old dude for my club! PLEASE JOIN!” Doc-“Stop asking! I don’t want to join you!”
Aki-“You can be the club maid!” Junna-“EHHHHH! What kind of club are you making?”
So what does it take to be an awesome mecha builder in the future? Does it take guts, imagination, heart or strength? While all of those sound like amazing qualities Ahiho finds out it takes MONEY lots and lots of MONEY to make a giant robot. Other than money, building a giant robot requires a team of skilled workers and in this episode we get a peek into the “assembly” of the robotics club, but how will she convince them to join her? I know our robotic adventure started off with a preview of the club members working together, but I think we all just want to see HOW she manages to gets them to join up and what kinds of special talents each member brings to the club. For their project I would think that they would need a mechanic, programmer, pilot and a commander type to lead everyone unless you are building a tiny robot? Then again we all saw how overworked Ahiko got when she tried to do everything on her own which triggered an event with her elephant mouse syndrome.
Robotic Mystery Science Theater
Aki-“Did you say mystery? We must investigate!” Kai-“Have fun with that I have to play more vidya games.”
Kai-“Whoa, your hair smells really nice…” Aki-“Don’t be a creeper…please…”
The building blocks for a robot are in place we just have to wait for Kaito and Akiho to figure out where they fit, but this episode left me with a lot of questions like what happened to Akiho’s sister? Did she die or is she working on some top secret government project? Also what caused Mizuka to require the aid of a prosthetic? I think there was probably some type of accident related situation of course and for my final question did Akiho develop her elephant mouse syndrome after a traumatic event? I have a feeling it is related to her sister somehow. Oh and just in case you wanted to know that strange disorder isn’t a real disease because it was totally made up for anime purposes, but for what reason? I really have no idea other than plot? I know some readers out there will probably hate the whole idea of giving such an adorable character a random medical problem, but I don’t mind that it’s a fake disease as long as it doesn’t define her as another typical sick moe character.
Extra robotic parts
Kai-“Are you alright over there?” Aki-“Nothing wrong here! Just sniffing all the plastic robot parts…”
Doc-“This is the worst looking piece of chocolate of all time!” Aki-“Uhhh that is not chocolate! Don’t eat it!”
Beware of tiny Aki! Her robotic moe levels are off the charts!
Kai-“Wow you need to get out more.” Aki-“Quiet fool! We must prepare the sacrifice for our new god.”
Interesting episode this week introducing us to some new characters like Doc and his hnnggg so cute granddaughter Junna Daitoku! I died laughing when she was trying her best to teach Akiho some special fighting moves, but I can see where that character might come in handy later on? I just picture her wearing some type of special motion capture suit allowing her to teach the robot different fighting moves, but of course we find out soon! I also forgot to mention that Subaru was seen outside of Doc’s robotics shop. I wonder what that was all about because it clearly tells me he is still interested in robots; however he just doesn’t feel like joining a team right now…wait a minute maybe he is really Kirito from another timeline!? I remember the good old days when he wanted to be a solo beater…anyway I can’t wait to see what happens in the next episode of Robotic;notes or as I call it Robotic;Adventures!
Programmer chick-“Borrow my source code? AHAHAHAHAHAH Nice one kid.”
FIGHT ON TINY ROBOT BUDDY!
