Re: Episode 6
That was a tense battle. We knew the heroines would win in the end but they certainly dragged the suspense out to the max.
Arisa going from full of confidence to total meltdown and blabbing about her love life was a hoot to watch. Hirano Aya must have had real fun doing the recording for this. Kay reminds me of Strike Witches' Shirley.
I loved the part where the Volleyball team and their Type 89 stumbled upon Arisa and her flag tank. They just stared at each other like two samurai warriors in between bamboo trees.
The animators are getting more creative in the shots where they show the tank from the outside and the characters inside their small polygons talking to each other. First there was Momo sticking her head outside her polygon after Yuzu teased her about missing (again!). And then you have the Volleyball team's polygons blowing apart after their tank got hit.
Edit : Oh yeah. I know that translators sometimes have the leeway to 'localize' the things said, but the "This is a slam dunk" comment that Arisa makes was a bit of a cheap shot at Colin Powell's UN presentation before the invasion of Iraq.
