<@> Oops, scratch that... click
<@> Mad Max?
<> I was about to ask, why is there a Fist of the North Star character here?
<> I did not remember that guy has a name
<> Don't worry. We're beyond the Thunderdrome.
<@> I both like and dislike this guy already
<@> What is THAT?
<@> Oh yikes... you do NOT mess with these guys' flower arrangements
<@> Piranha plants!
<@> Or the Pottsylvania Creeper
<> Yes, those are sewing machine guns.
<@> Wow! This boss got nerfed
<> Interesting, so there's someone else collecting XP thread.
<@> I didn't know it was multiplayer
<> As an aside, I've always wanted a superhero whose power is JRPG-style XP acquisition and leveling.
<@> So, Scott Pilgrim would join The Avengers?
<> Ad pause, please.
<> And that's a rather frightening proposition.
<@> Yes, yes it is
<> And we're good.
<@> (though he becomes considerably less horrible by the end, which is the whole point)
<@> Whoa! We jump right into a hostage situation!
<> Well, end of the comic. The movie botches his character development horribly.
<@> Oh my goodness, the Biology Club boss is a half-and-half!
<> I wish my school had a Mad Science Club.
<@> Oh yikes, her own outfit is fashion-policing her
<> I'm reminded of that one QI episode with the running gag about "avoid fatty and spicy foods."
<> Is Mako dead?
<> That's probably too much to hope for, isn't it.
<> Combat acupuncture
<@> They wouldn't kill her off this early, it's not GoT
<@> Ah, combat acupuncture!
<> Brace yourselves. Mohawks are coming.
<@> Is there an actual Pervert Club?
<> I wouldn't be surprised.
<> At this point, I suspect it'll turn out to be the game's Developer's Room.
<> Ad pause, please.
<@> Well... this has been an interesting level so far
<> Okay, wait, we've seen teh guy in the bar before. He's one of the three guys I can't tell apart.
<@> Is he the teacher guy?
<> He's the homeroom teacher/compulsive stripper/exposition guy.
<> Wait, those ARE the same guy?
<@> Ah yes, the Tutorial guy
<> But they're different from the one guy in Satsuki's inner circle that looks just like them, yes?
<@> The path that we of WHAT?!
<> Okay, so the rebellion against the fashion-powered tyrants are called "Nudist Beach"? That's kind of awesome.
<@> This just keeps on going
<> Darn cutscenes.
<@> This anime says "people and clothing aren't enemies" and makes it sound deep
<@> Also it's an anime where the term "naked Nudist" isn't redundant
<> I dunno about people, but clothing is definitely one of MY enemies.
<> So she got fashion-policed and now she's not eating. Is this a Very Special Episode?
<@> Is he naked?
<> And now they're looking at Mad Max's Pokedex entry.
<> That guy in the foreground!
<> Is he the same person as the Exposition Guy?
<@> At some point, we've got to establish how to tell them apart
<> The Elite Four exposition guy is not the Nudist Beach exposition guy
<> Ad break, please.
<> Elite Four exposition is younger and always wears a jacket that covers the lower half of his face
<> No, not him, the other guy.
<> With the spikier blue hair.
<@> Ah, so THAT's how you tell them apart
<> The butler?
<> Sword Monkey?
<> Sword Monkey doesn't have blue hair
<@> Which of the Elite Four does?
<> The info guy
<@> The train moves, not the station
<@> And he's back
<@> I hope she's been level grinding...
<@> Uh oh, she's out of the groove
<> Judging by her nerves, she hasn't.
<> So why DID he let her transform?
<> Too far away to stop it?
<@> What the heck?
<@> Oh, they're all temporarily joining her party because they're mad at this guy
<@> Ahah, unrest amongst the Elite Four
<> And spool grenades.
<@> The heck...
<> Okay, I'll admit, this sequence with the band and all the quick shots of the battle is pretty funny.
<@> In-universe background music!
<@> "Betrayed by clothing."
<@> This show is just too awesome
<> Killed in the pursuit of experimental fashion.
<@> Nooooo! Senketsu!
<@> Wha... she's got Pinkie Powers!
<> She's one of two Pinkies in this show.
<> We haven't seen the other yet.
<@> Her only friends were in her head. Gee, I wonder why...
<@> Why does Mako have a nosebleed? I missed it
<> Also note that Mako has a small nose bleed
<> She did fall face-first.
<@> He's fazed by talking clothing? Does he think he's in a different anime?
<> Normally only Ryuko can hear Senketsu.
<@> I love how the bad guys are helping her out for purely selfish reasons
<> Okay, I like the drum majorette Elite Four.
<@> "Anti-Uniform Guerilla"
<@> Is Jakuzure the Elite Four drummer girl?
<@> Thought so
<> My Little Kamui: Life Fibers are Magic
<> "Coming apart at the seams"
<> Get it?
<> Because CLOTHING
<@> Was that a deliberate pun?
<@> Or just a subtitle thing?
<> Well, the subtitlers did it on purpose
<@> I love the closingsong
<> The little nubs along Ryuko's iris always fascinate me.
<> I think we still haven't cleared up who Froborr was talking about, the guy with the "spikier blue hair"
<> It's like her eyes are little gears.
<> That guy!
<> The one prominent in the next episode preview!
<> Yeah, that's... well, I think you got his name.
<> His hair isn't blue though
<> What color is it? It looks blue to me.
<> It's more an ocean green.
<> ...but... oceans ARE blue... :/
<> But yeah, it's definitely the bluer end of green.
<> Okay, I'm back at that scene, and the lighting did turn his hair blue
<> And I don't think we've ever seen him outside that room, so.
<@> Well, I should get going... I'm rehearsing one play, and teching a performance of another
<> He was outside in the first couple episodes
<> Bye, Sylo.
<> He's the athletic club chairman, so he was boxing club guy's boss
<> Bye, Sylo.
<@> Looking forward to the EqG post, even though I loved the movie and you didn't
<> And Tennis Girl's.
<@> See ya round... this was fun
<> Yeah, my ability to remember past events in this show is limited. Everything is so frenetic that little stands out enough to register.
<> And yep!

<> See you all next week!
<> What did you think of this one?
<> tbh, I remember the first two episodes I did a lot of stop-and-rewind
<> I liked it better than 1, 2, or 4. Not as much as 3.
<> I could follow what was going on, there was little of the annoying "ostensibly funny thing happens, followed immediately by character screaming that said ostensibly funny thing happened," and I like the design and attitude of the drum majoriette.
<> Anyone have any thoughts before I copypasta?<> Not really. Glad you liked this one.
<> Okay, copypastaing.
<> I look forward to seeing you respond to Sanageyama's focus episode
<> What's a Sanageyama?
<> He's the dude you were asking about earlier
<> I call him Sword Monkey.
<> Uzu Sanageyama, athletic club chairman and kendo club guy
