Episode 1: I'm Flying! I'm Actually Flying!

Yes I like this. I like this a lot. The characters are fun and Kurashina is such a klutz I love it. She's just so energetic and happy and it just warms my heart. <- So corny

I like the game and the premise of it. It's unique and it looks like its going to make some great visuals. Also having played a little bit of the VN it's going to be a fun ride. Wonder if they are going to go a little NSFW

I like how what seemed to be an info dump only turned out to be a couple of seconds. The Grav-shoes and the Flying Circus games was explained pretty well for a first episode.

I'm looking forward to more. This was one of my most anticipated for this winter. And I like what I see.



I've noticed from different show threads that we seem to have the same tastes, lol. Personally, even in real life, my preference in a girl is very energetic and happy, but somewhat klutzy, as it helps balance out my somewhat lazy, melancholic, and precision-oriented personality. I feel like if Kurashina wasn't the way she was, but they still had the same kind of comedy in here, I wouldn't be a big fan, but the obnoxiousness comes from the energetic, happy, klutzy girl, so it turns it from "annoying" to "endearing" for me.

So, based on your comment on if it might go to NSFW territory, was the original VN an R18+ one? Because I might look it up if it is so that I can get the, ahem, "full" experience the anime probably won't go to. And right now, I don't know which way they may go with fanservice in the show, as the entire episode, we never got one upskirt pantyshot when any of the girls were flying (trust me, I was keeping an eye out for them. I don't who I want to have the blue shimapan more though, Kurashina or the twintail kouhai), but then there was the scene where the MC looked out his window and saw a girl with only an unhooked bra and panties on. It's like, if we can see THAT, what's wrong with some flying pantyshots? Also, I made sure to not put a space between panty and shots, otherwise we'd be talking about Sora no Otoshimono and the beautiful migration from that show.

I feel like this is gonna be up top in my "relaxing and funny" series this season, especially seeing as it looks like GATE is going from "relaxing and funny with some action and darkness" to "darkness and action with some relaxing and funny".

Air Gear is one of my all time favorites.

I come to the all mighty Forums to ask

Thanks

Engaging start. I'm in love with Asuka's voice. It's so sweet.

Episode 2

That maneuver Asuka use is quite difficult to pull off, and as such Reiko sees a lot of potential in her. But at the moment, she's still struggling to fly, while Misaki is struggling to stay awake. Not to mention, the school's FC is struggling to stay afloat with not enough members to compete. But right off the bat, Asuka, Mashiro, and Misaki join, and the first day of practice didn't go well seeing that the girls don't have the equipment. So they go shopping and the mechanics are explained in regards to the shoes. Asuka and Misaki have a match, but Asuka is having a hard time doing the air kick turn, while Misaki puts her experience to use. But in the end, Masaya is staying on board to be Asuka's coach. I'm enjoying this show so far, and while the girls are a handful, they are a fun bunch.

Episode 2

Looks like Asuka needs training.

The progression was fine with members joining and characters participating. I'm still curious on why Masaya is reluctant in all of this; a good backstory would help later on.

Ready for the next one.

I swear, Misaki would do anything for...udon.

Meh that match was underwhelming. Misaki destroyed her Asuka. My guess is that Asuka is only able to use that move when she is truly motivated with a reason rather than to win. Previously, she was fighting for something but this time, she was only competing to score points/win.

Anyways yeah.
The OP song is kinda pretty but the story feels pretty flat so far.

Misaki best girl

Episode 2: Udon...?

This was a nice episode. Got some more info on the flying circus and a little slice of life from the ladies. Also the implication of Hinata and his relationship to the flying circus.

Can't wait to see one of the real matches. With the speeder, fighter and all-rounder, it's going to make for some intense matches. I like how they implemented that while looking for the right shoes.

The episode title is Udon but I saw no udon this episode. Lol but Kirishina is so bubbly she gives me diabetes. She's just extra adorable. Can't wait to see Misaki get more adorable. Cause she's the other main heroine.

This was a nice episode. Good information, nice little slice of life bit, and another mini match. Good pacing so far in my opinion. Looking forward to more.

I'm loving the voice acting so far. Asuka in particular has a very fun voice.

I hope we don't have too much seal clubbing though. I get that it was to give Asuka more conviction to get better and to get Hinata to join up to help her but I don't want it to become a recurring theme.



Quite a fun show so far though.

Agreed This is probably my surprise of the season mainly because I had no clue what I was getting into and well.... I like it quite a bit. Things are setting up nicely

This'll be the first time I've said this I think but they've actually made a character's boobs SMALLER for the anime adaptation Usually it is the other way around lol.

Misaki is rocking some big aul puppies in the VN if the ero scene screen captures I've seen are anything to go by; like a good 50% increase over the anime...

Episode 3

Now that the FC team has had some practice with the proper equipment that it's time that they further their development by training with a school with an elite FC team in Takafuji. That was pretty nice seeing everybody getting together and practicing. Of course, Kunahama is no match given the huge experience gap as those girls are having a tough time keeping up with the school's training routines, but at the very least Asuka and Misaki scored a point against the best in the business. Things are developing quite nicely here, and it remains to be seen just what happened with that player Shindou idolized so much but suddenly quit.

Episode 3

As expected, Misaki looks great in her outfit


Hmm, the episode had a better pacing than previous. Is it also just me or did Asuka get a lot better? Wouldn't be too surprised if she learns the move that pulled during her very first match.

Also, Rina somehow became relevant...
Shindou's a damn powerhouse.
