So we finally have another slow moving episode after quite a bit of action last episode. Puck is turning out to be an intriguing character. He has been providing data to Amara and Moco. We’ve learned that the Machine Goodfellows aren’t perfect after all. They’ve been damaged and need repairs, typically in a teenage-mech series it’s only the good guys that suffer that fate. Here, we’ve got both sides can be impacted. We also got a little bit of fan service this episode, and here the creators here threw it in without much of a strong purpose.
If they had left out the first couple of scenes with Zin, I would not have expected him to be a Planetary Gear. BONES you’ve done it again! Throw in some suspense in your series! They should have let that scene completely out! Also the preview spoiled it from last episode as well. Come on BONES! Surprise us why don’t you?!
Naoka was pretty much useless. She was only there for Zin’s past background aside from that there was zero development for her. This was a shame. Considering how next episode will continue this arc with Zin, I do hope there is some kind of reason for Naoka to be in this than just detail.
One thing that was good about this episode were the Planetary Gears. I really do like how Moco awakens the Planetary Gears with a kiss. It’s so simple, nothing too complex. I was waiting for them to say Kiraboshi after the symbol scene. Haha! This show is very much like STAR DRIVER in so many ways.
OVERALL IMPRESSION: 5/10
