Episode 3

And now, a WIllwearer is after an trap idol as Amu is actually a guy. The one causing havoc is a fat guy who is a die-hard Amu fan, but he's just wearing the armor as someone is remotely controlling it. Those two are having such a tough time seeing that they are always hitting each other. So they come up with a plan to have Asami posing as Amu in the WIllwear to deceived him, and it became a battle between who has control. And once again, Unit 8 has caused a lot of damage that requires apologizing as the stage is destroyed and Asami's performance was broadcast live. Well, that was funny, but at the same time the story writing has been very weak.

Wait...that's a dude? Amu is a guy? This guy...


Another weird episode. Idols really have a lot to deal with once they enter the entertainment industry. Kazari's cosplay was priceless lmao

Episode 3

Yo, what's up with the trap?!

This episode was like Idolmaster and Love Live meets CG power rangers and Zoids, lol! It looks like the force is getting blamed for misdeeds and other suspicious actions, so looking forward to where that'll take the series.

Ready for more.

Episode 3: Challenge at the Arena

Another fun episode. That trap was unexpected. I wonder if the otaku dude knew that idol was a trap. I sure hope so. Or else his dreams would have been crushed right then and there.

Asami as an idol. I think I can get behind that. She's pretty cute. The idol song was pretty catchy. Action was okay but their interactions are always fun.

Probably going to be more episodic while slowing figuring out who the turtleneck guy is and his intentions. That scene with his little sister? or probably someone posing as that was really random.

Anyways looking forward to more.

It's a trap! All singing all dancing eps!

As always the characters interactions are always fun which seem to be the strength of this show.

So whats the villains motation anyway? just doing it for shits and giggles?

Episode 4


Ah, heroes saving an impending aircraft disaster. Nice.

This was probably the most serious episode to date yet for this show. Good thing they managed to work well and save a lot of lives. Nice.

Episode 4

Airplane panic!!!

After research, I found out that the artist for Shokugeki no Soma actually drew the original character designs or helped in drawing them, so no wonder the characters looks familiar. Episode was fine, but I wonder what Orochi is! How shady..

Episode 4: Holding Airspace

Oh plane time! I'm gonna keep this one pretty short. Pretty cool episode today. Hinted at more things like Orochi, still trying to figure out Turtleneck's involvement in all this. Does he have a grudge with Unit 8?

Anyways echoing what curr0001 said the character interactions are great.

I am a fan of mech animes, and this totally reminds me of all the 80s, 90s, and early 2000s mech stuff. It's solid in that area so I love it. Though I do notice that on average western anime fans don't seem to particularly enjoy mech anime. It makes me sad.

A mech is just a piece of equipment like a tank or fighter plane. I would not like or dislike any anime just because it happens to have mechs in it.

The things the cops are wearing in Active Raid seem more like spray on suits of armor than mechs to me. They call them Will Wear. A wearable thing not a vehicle.

This falls into the category of a mech anime. Those are basically mobile suits like in Gundam, just smaller.

I don't think that people hate mech anime based on the fact that mechs are in them, but more based on the space opera-ish story that goes along with them.

Episode 4

I get the feeling that if Unit 8 saves a little girl's kitten, they'd be sued for breaking a branch on the Sakura tree it was stuck in.

So, the secret antagonist not only got information on where the "ro" section of "Orochi" (which the episode seems to suggest is some kind of surveillance system database?) is, but they also managed to figure out where "O" and "chi" are also physically located? Without the government realizing that any of those three locations where discovered? Ouch. It doesn't take a genius to realize that this is most likely going to come back to haunt people before the end of this season.
