Gundam AGE: Kira?? Is that you? What the heck are YOU doing in this series?!?!
Seriously though, it's gotten much better then when it first started. At least they're not using some Mobile Trace System or anything... READY? GO!
Nope, I think it continues to stink. But I had to laugh about your Kira reference, I thought the same thing. It just wouldn't be a Gundam series though without the "War is bad, we should all hold hands and sing kumbaya!" mantra. Though this last episode made me chuckle when everyone was tripping on X-rounderitis, except for Asemu, who has no such ability, and he just looks on like "Wtf?" If they make (sure they will) an Age-2/pirate mode model, I'm buying it, because that's pretty badass looking. As stupid as its placement is.
Total Eclipse: I want to smack whoever came up with the promos for this series. Seriously, WTF were they thinking? They make it look like fanservice show thinly disguised as a mech series thereby turning off anyone looking for a serious show, but then it turns out to have almost no fanservice thereby pissing off anyone who actually wanted fanservice. Marketing fail. I'm still at episode 3, I like being ~2 weeks behind as I don't do cliffhangers (I cheat, I know).
LOL! Ok, you're completely right here. It STARTED pretty good, but just isn't GOING anywhere. Like a bad soap opera, except there is no sex, lies, etc going on. So it's even WORSE than a bad soap opera. They hint at enemies for the next episode (#8) so hopefully it will see more action and improve. I just don't see it happening properly.
I just came back from Vacation, so I'm playing catch up with series I missed 2 episodes of.
