What's Hot Today

Captain Earth Episode 22: Lots of potential death flags…

Well, that was a weird end to the episode, suggesting that all of the events leading up to this point were a dream by Daichi. Presumably, next week will reveal what the true nature of Daichi’s dream is. I’m assuming it’s a hallucination that will end, returning the story back to the critical moment that was interrupted. Maybe Daichi will realize something important that will save the team. Read More... //

Captain Earth Episode 21: Well, that was convenient

There was definitely a moment in this episode where I really couldn’t tell whether Teppei would live or die. A lot of the hints leading up to this episode seemed to hint that they’d be willing to let him die, but I guess it’s still too early for that. I’m a bit curious about how he survived, though…was that his singularity? I wasn’t aware that he could still use that… Read More... //

Captain Earth Episode 20: Salty Dog keeps getting saltier

This week, Teppei and Akari finally have their own moment. The couples of the show have finally been established before the impending final battle. Something that had me curious during the episode was whether Teppei or Ai recognized the other…or at the very least suspected the true identity of the other. Based on their reactions, it didn’t really seem like it, I guess. Read More... //

Captain Earth Episode 19: Time to begin the plan?

So what was the point of giving Hana the Flare Engine if they were just going to trap her in the Blume for the final plan? Is that supposed to mean that Akari will inherit the Flare Engine? Also, I’m not entirely sure I buy this “trapped in the Blume” thing. From her flashbacks, it looked more like Hana was the one who decided to leave the Blume when she noticed the light from Daichi. Are we sure she can’t just leave by herself? Read More... //

Captain Earth Episode 18: Ambush

I guess it’s about time Daichi was proven useful. He hasn’t been doing all too much in the recent battles. When Teppei was saying that Daichi might lose something important someday if he keeps thinking the same way, I was expecting some cheesy retort like “I would have lost something important today if I had run” or something. But I guess things work out for now. Read More... //

Captain Earth Episode 17: The salt is real

I guess this week’s episode was devoted to allow Teppei and Daichi show off to Salty Dog. One could only hope they would be more amenable now that their Cerberus defense system failed so horribly. I’m also guessing that the backdoor Akari found this week to shut down the Kiltgangs is useless going forward? The fact that she seems so useful as a hacker really suggests that there won’t be another engine for her to pilot. Read More... //

Captain Earth Episode 16: That was lucky

It looks like the Planetary Gears that had their Machine Goodfellows intercepted before they could become Kiltgang are still relevant after all. Is it because Setsuna is able to give them another chance or have they always been able to try again like that? Either way, it looks like all of the Planetary Gears will start getting their chance to fight as Kiltgang. Also, Hana’s first fight doesn’t really showcase all too much of her ability. Sure, she’s able to dodge a few shots with some precognition, but her victory is ultimately a lucky break. Teppei seemed more effective in his first fight in the Nebula Engine… Read More... //

Captain Earth Episode 15: Finally another engine

It looks like Hana ends up getting a Livlaster after all. I guess that new machine from last week might go to Hana as predicted. But doesn’t that mean that Akari should logically get her own Livlaster eventually as well? She hasn’t been doing too much lately (other than standing by on the ground next too a mecha battle…who does that?). Meanwhile, on the other side, it looks like Setsuna has turned (easily as always). Also, the guy in the suit finally finds out that his plan has been hijacked by Puck…who subsequently hijacks him. Read More... //

Captain Earth Episode 14: Hana’s dark secrets

Well, that asteroid was dealt with pretty easily. I really dig this new opening song…it’s much better than the previous one. Although, it might be a bit too mellow for what’s happening in the background. I’m not really feeling the new ending song, though…it seems rather poor despite being a Supercell song. Anyway, there are a lot of questions brought up in this episode (unsurprisingly). Read More... //

Captain Earth Episode 13: Another one down

Well, at least Bugbear is a better character than the other designer’s children we’ve seen so far. The others just seemed like they were rushed through. Bugbear’s singularity isn’t explained too well, though. His illusions are somehow autonomous and tangible…the word “illusion” usually suggests that they would be immaterial. But that’s just me being nitpicky. Read More... //
