@Marshal Victory:

I was just joking. Did this series get legal simulcast? I have that strict rule that prohibits me from watching shows illegally.

Why is bromance such a big thing in mech shows? I bet this show would be like Valvrave but less angst and dark. The pilot was short and didn't wow me unlike Valvrave that had more action.

@takashichea: No bromance in this series. This is gona be slower paced at 1st the way it looks to me.

2nd episode was pretty good. Some action an a undoing of "the man" . An the evil computers name is Puck!

@Marshal Victory:

3rd episode was pretty good

Animation quality is still good. An illustration quality is still good. To many this season seem to drop by the 3rd episode.

Also a curious thing on some boards people or one person under many names , Keep saying this is just Star Driver. An not knowing why they would say that or as often,I just hope what they are smoking lasts them threw the season. Cause its not Star Driver. It has Mechs an the same team that made Star driver. But thats the only connection. Hell Mechs in this are big boy Ultra man big Mechs.

So other than that series is pretty good.Also Salty Dog some times is used as another name for pirates.... just saying.

I have decided to save captain earth for monday mornings just so I have something to look forward to.

The name Salty Dog fits that faction perfectly, as it seems they were pissed that Daichi had broken their control on the Teppi and Hana.

Daichi is a great main character for this show, keeping a happy and cheerful demeanor almost all the time.

Akari is very cheerful as well and her hacking skills are second to none lmao.

Hana is adorable but incredibly naive. Daichi was have a hard time restraining himself when she walked out of the bathroom completely naked, without a care in the world lmao.

That bastard drinking from the Salty Dog cup and his ark faction are pissing me off.

Sending Daichi out to fight with a damaged earth driver.

It was up to Hana and Teppi to save Daichi.

Hana can sing beautifully.

Shot out to the commander for being cool in his own way

I give this episode a 4/5.

Animation was on point and we got some decent progression.

4th was good enuff to keep me for a few more.

The mobile weapons would be more close to what we mostly see as mecha in anime . The ones out side in space are the omg huge variety .So if im following right the one that shots up is the mobile weapon of the earth engine?

Also magic belly button forte was something or other.

Post by LHWKnight (2,753 posts) See mini bio Level 12

@Marshal Victory: agreed and I think Akari is going to be my favorite character. Magic belly button Forte, also Hana has used naked body forte on Daichi already lmao.

Those twins are really something.

looking forward to the next episode.

I'm in episode 2. Not sure if I can catch up since the show is pretty sleepy to me. Also, it's not pulling me in much compared to Riddle Story which kept me interested in.

@LHWKnight: @Marshal Victory:

This reminds me of Valvrave and Aesthetica. Can you guess why? I'm still on episode 2. I'll catch up. I'm done with school finally. Until next 2 weeks, I'll be taking summer school.

Post by LHWKnight (2,753 posts) See mini bio Level 12

@takashichea: Yeah I am reminded of Aesthica as well. Daichi feel uncomfortable being called captain and it seems that everyone is getting a kick out of calling him that lmao.

Why did this episode feel the need to focus most of it's time on this new kid. I really did care that he was a new enemy, they should have focused more on the team.

Tepe is still melancholy that boy needs to chill.

The twin lovers recruited this kid, but maybe that wasn't a good idea since he seems to be way more insane than they are.

anyway this episode was a 3.5/5.

Puck really needs to learn how to turn that swag off, or else he's going to end up like Makoto from school days (^_^)

Teppei has a few secret admirers and Daichi and Pitz are both miserable without Hana

Akari was the one that shined in this episode, with that belly button forte and then taken control of the enemy.

This show is still going strong.
