Asobi ni Ikuyo! 05

Asobi ni Ikuyo!

Sora wo Kakeru Kio?

Is Kio manly enough for you haters now? I think that saving a girl alone from a sinking ship’s engine room should feature pretty decent in the ranking of manly actions to take.

Asobi ni Ikuyo!

Gotta love Manami’s Assistdroid, Yun Fat. Even comes with dual-pistols and requisite doves.

Asobi ni Ikuyo!

Yeah… I gotta admit the Assistdroids are pretty irresistable.

The action sure never stops in this show and this week was pretty crazy with the girls solo’ing a floating fortress. Literally. Bloody ship has armored panels, CIWS and cannons. Oh, and an amusement park too.

Sadly, it’s a bit marred by the bleh animation quality that is very obvious, with shots like this…

Asobi ni Ikuyo!

…. happening. Man I knew Aoi was flat, but not THAT flat durr hurr hurr. Don’t even want to mention the CABBAGE quality turkey/chicken thing.

Dog Leader Hocchan makes her battle appearance this episode and interestingly enough, Aoi’s armored suit is revealed to be Dog technology, implying the Dogs have had quite a hold in the “underworld” for a while now. I thought it was cats that were supposed to be the devious ones.

    Before he did that though, he pulled off another PROTECTIN MA FRIENDS-speech so cheesy that it almost made me puke all over my keyboard.

    Meh, aside from that silly FRIENDSHIP speech I don’t really hate him anymore, I pity him instead. The producers managed to ruin his supposedly heroic moment with that ridiculous power suit (admittedly, designed for females) and a WTF soundtrack. Seriously, the music during that particular moment just doesn’t have any trace of awesomeness the scene implies!

    As a side note: I don’t know which one is actually differing from the light novel, but the manga has some different characterization than the anime…

    Wasn’t Yun-Fun called Yun-Fat just now…?

    Yeah, but he was wearing girl’s clothes when he did it.

    Yeah.Kio is just Plain ‘Ol Joe and its kinda refreshing considering all the people around him are not normal.And although I have to admit with the comment before me that it was kinda off rescuing a girl with the female powersuit on (would have preferred Aoi’s powersuit than that) at least he’s not whiny, sulking about his powerlessness or make a fuss about stuff like wearing it.Finally, a male character that’s normal and not a loser in every aspect.

    Say, can we call this anime as “Let’s play Big Damn Heroes”?

    So this makes two completely flat female leads this season. Aoi and Ryoko both have absolutely nothing there.

    Well, you see… the is this thing…

    THE CATIAN SUIT OFFSETS THE MANLINESS BY A LARGE MARGIN!!!!

    Besides that, I’m still enjoying this series….

    Sounds like someone had the foresight to restrict the power suit’s strength during heat in order to prevent rape…either that, or its happened before. Poor guy~

    Pfweh, by my counts Kio was already manly enough when he charged into a military base with virtually no backup. It takes balls to try and pull that on armed soldiers.

    It’s not that he’s not manly enough or anything, but it’s just that the rest of the cast are just too full of awesomeness and WIN that they completely overshadow him in almost every possible way.

    Meh let the pedos have their token DFC character, while us breast lovers can have every other female in the show o.x

    If Kio didn’t using that cattia suit, will he still want to help Aoi.
