pirates are flying on BF109 Messerschmitt?


They were like a cross between Bf 109s and P-51s . They mostly looked like Bf 109s, but those air scoops were like a Mustang.

The army guys seemed to be flying P-47 Thunderbolts

This show reminds me of how much I hate HIDIVE's subtitles on the Amazon app

Currently I think this show is okay for now. The dogfights and everything that goes into them are easily the highlight while everything else is eh.

If this anime was simply the flight scenes and plot it would be great fun. But the CGI is so bad that it even bothers me, and I'm not one to really fuss about animation normally or even notice unless it really is awful. So it is bad when I notice the difference. If they had kept it for just the flight scenes it would have been perfect. Then there is the characters. Were the girls supposed to be amusing? Cute? I don't know, but I just found them plain annoying. Just about every character so far has been an over-exaggerated stereotype.

So despite the amazing fight scenes, and possibly interesting plot, I give up.

They are encouraging more traffic there...by breaking the forum apparently. It's been broken for at least 5 days now

It would be funny if girly air force outlasted this show. I'm not ready to give up on it myself. but ... It doesn't have GUP's magic.

Hoo explains-

"It's been broken for at least 5 days now..."

That site is such a trainwreck. I really need to cancel my sub with them, but, for some reason, keep holding on. :-S

Again I don't dislike the CGI, it's flip flop between CGI and 2D. For me though seeing Chika 2D and then immediately CG after a minute, to me that is an example of it's so bad it's good, I got a good laugh from it.

All in all though, I'm totally ok with the CGI, the characters are fun, and the dogfights... well we are all here for those so there is no need to mention them. This show and Love is War are my two most anticipated shows of the season right now.

Episode 3

Here come Elite Industries with a deal where the town hands over their prized plane, and they refuse. But these guys aren't taking no for an answer as they attack the town to get the mayor to submit. As such, the Kotobuki squadron is called to action as they let the townspeople know to not accept the deal knowing that they probably would still attack even with the deal was accepted. So they go to war, but they lose as the mayor flies the plane and they ended up surrendering it anyway, but in the end they protected the town as those pirates did keep their word and hightailed out of town. This was a wake-up call for the girls as while they did lose the battle and Emma survived being shot down, at least they protected the town. Next time, the girls are going to infiltrate their base of operation to get the plane back.

I haven't seen much hint of a season long plot thread so far. I think the show is kind of bland at this point. There hasn't been any world building so far, and any hints of character backstory has not been explored since episode 1.

We got a Seven Samurai type story in this episode.

The episode started off with 2 of the main characters being hand drawn and animated, then they switched back to CGI. It's a stark contrast between decent hand animation and mediocre CGI. I don't understand why they are using CGI for the characters while they are in the planes either, they barely move in the planes, so you are defeating the purpose of CGI, which is making complex animation easier.

Still don't care about the use of CGI, and still loving this anime so far!

Next episode is gonna be real exciting, wonder if we will see hand to hand combat and gunfights, maybe also in addition with air support! The possibilities excite me to no end.

We are getting some back story for the characters, but another week and another good dog fight. First failure for right now, but I feel like they'll get the win going down the line.
