You know what that means. Now while Strike Witches episode 4 downloads, I’m going to watch another episode of Gravion. Not twittering it, since that would take too long and I’m going to watch Strike Witches next.

And then I think I’ll pre-order Dai Mahou Touge. “Lyrical Tokharov, kill them all!”

Ok, 2 episodes of Gravion left, and I’m back in the corner of “Yes, they were serious when they made this show; they just didn’t realize how stupid they were being.” I submit Godannar as evidence — Gravion has far better villians (which isn’t saying much — Ethel the Aardvark Goes Quantity Surveying had better villains than Godannar), but I’m getting that same vibe. Mecha fans just don’t seem to care how idiotic their show is.

I’ll hold off watching until tomorrow night.

And a final note: (possibly NSFW)

Um, are we going to lose the fog from this sequence on the DVD? Yikes!

And next week’s the swimsuit episode?

  1. Reserve judgment please until you’ve seen the last two episodes of Gravion, OK?

  2. By the way, there’s a coda after the ED of the final episode. It took me a long time to notice it was there.

    Well if I can, I’m going to watch them tonight.

    I kind of expected Ena to come back, and the castle to turn out to be a space battleship. The latter is just required, it seems — Dannar Base did the same thing. .

    Fae just became much less sympathetic. I mean, damn, nobody likes to lose, but she was willing to completely destroy Toga as a person in revenge for her not being the one chosen. Nobody likes a vindictive bitch.

    Since they’ve already revealed what should have been the two biggest secrets of the series, I am at a complete loss to anticpate what’s coming. I mean, aside from my earlier speculation that Toga is actually a huminoid Zeravire. It’s interesting that no one else could ‘humanize” him; not Fae, not Ena, only Eiji. And they’re the only ones that can pilot the Gran Kaiser. Hmmmmmmmm.

    Bear in mind that Godannar also pulled something out of nowhere at the end, though it was, frankly, weak. I’m wondering if it’s a trope of sorts. Mecha shows will always contain at least one “WTF?” moment near the end, involving a deus ex machina that has been planned all along.

    Nah, two shows aren’t enough to base that on.
