Aki-“I NEED TO BUY EVERYTHING! NOW!” Kai-“Good luck with that.”
|Woooooo! Time for more Robotic;Notes on Metanorn and a hilarious one on one conversation with Jrow with our mini talk about this episode, but I have to ask did this episode keep you interested or did it push you to finally drop it? Hopefully you continue to find something fun to enjoy about the series though!|
Robotic super powers
Mr. Nagakukada-“I don’t need money…” Aki-“EHHHHHHHHHH!” Kai-“Worst teacher ever.”
Aki-“Rip off his arms! Break his legs! AHHHH!!” Kai-“Whoa…calm down!”
High school characters and over the top super powers are found in just about every other anime series and usually their unique abilities kick in at the right moments to save the day! During this episode we got to see something unusual happen to Kai during one of his robotic matches, but could we really say that his attack is some type of power? I mean time did slow for Kai during the match against Mister Pleiades which allowed his robot to dodge. I really think Kai’s attack is like the opposite of Aki’s illness because time speeds around her while Kai’s slows it down? All of that makes me believe Misa has special plans for both of them later on, why else would the company allow them to use the Kill Ballad source code provided by Frau? I still think they are obviously using the Robotics club as free beta testers for some future giant robot project. Just imagine if the development team behind Kill Ballad created the game as a way to recruit future mecha pilots based around the best players? That does sound a lot like Btoom minus the whole being kidnapped and sent off to a random remote for a crazy island killing game.
Robotic friendships or hardcore rivals
Kick some metal ass Tanegashi!
Kai-“U MAD?” Subaru-“HELL YA I AM MAD! LETS FIGHT!”
Subaru-“It’s not like I love cosplaying for you or anything! BAKA!”
Frau-“Fufufu I shall add you to my harem soon boy.”
This week finally pushed Subaru err I mean Mister Pleiades into the robotics club through *cough* blackmail *cough* who knew Kai had such a sneaky side to him? Damn Subaru seems really easy to trick like when Kai showed off that lame cardboard mask that caused him to grab it and turn back into Mister Pleiades instantly. So what about the newest character Frau Koujiro? I think it is obvious that she works for Misa because of the whole Kill Ballad game and maybe she was told to keep an eye on Aki, Kai and the progression of the robotics club? Either way all the main club members have finally made their appearances at last! We just have to wait for them to eventually join the robotics club.
Extra robots parts
Aki discovered what REALLY happens after roboONE fights
Aki-“Use the Tanegashi rocket punch of justice!!!” Kai-“Uh we don’t have a rocket punch.”
Kai-“I didn’t know we had to dress up for this.” Subaru-“TRICK OR TREAT! Err I mean PREPARE TO DIE!”
Aki-“NOW USE THE DRILL TO PIERCE THE HEAVENS!” Kai-“Maybe you should lay off the coffee.”
What a fantastic episode this week even though it felt like they jumped right into robo ONE and skipped like a huge chunk of story somewhere, but I don’t mind that because it keeps things from dragging on. I just could not stop laughing at the whole Mister Pleiades thing! Who knew Subaru was THAT into robotics that he actually created another persona or maybe this a case of chuunibyou? Besides that hilarious event we got to see a whole new side to Kai this week because he was trash talking and basically taunting the other robot fighters, but also what was up with the time slowing thing? I thought he was having some type of heart attack because the camera suddenly zoomed right to his chest. I wonder if he has a serious heart condition that could explain why he doesn’t push himself as much as Aki and how lazy he can appear to most of us? I just want to know what Misa meant her quote toward Kai as she watched him because that clearly means something sneaky is going on. So readers! What did you enjoy about this episode? Was it the characters? Robot fights or the mystery? I just want to know what the special connection is between Kai, Aki and that large ship from the opening and the flashback.
Aki-“We are now the robotics space club!” Kai-“OH HELL NO!” Subaru-“For once I agree with Kai.”
WE ARE GOING INTO SPACE! Wait what?
