[14:05] <@Sylocat> Ooh, flashback
[14:05] <@Sylocat> "Revocs?" Is that a Reebok joke?
[14:05] <FoME> No comment.
[14:05] <Froborr> Heheh, the way he's sitting in that hallway on the laptop, this is an Eva reference.
[14:05] <@Sylocat> Ah, now it's Sneakers
[14:06] <@Sylocat> Huh? It froze for me
[14:06] <Froborr> Let us know when it's moving again?
[14:06] <@Sylocat> Okay, just a second
[14:07] <Arrlaari> I've had that happen when the connection to the streaming service is interrupted
[14:07] <@Sylocat> Okay, starting again
[14:07] <Arrlaari> The buffer just runs out
[14:07] <@Sylocat> Because of course she came there herself
[14:07] <@Sylocat> "Scamp," she says
[14:08] <@Sylocat> The secret dream of every hacker
[14:08] <@Sylocat> Just reached the opening credits
[14:09] <FoME> The secret origin of Collar McDatapants, everyone.
[14:09] <Froborr> lol
[14:09] <@Sylocat> That is my new official nickname for him
[14:10] <FoME> Ad break.
[14:10] <@Sylocat> Ah, good, that means we're resynced
[14:10] <FoME> Oh no... I'm sorry, but it's giving me two minutes of ads here.
[14:10] <@Sylocat> Yeesh
[14:11] <@Sylocat> Well, it gives me time to buffer more of it
[14:12] <FoME> And we're good.
[14:12] <@Sylocat> The second? He was the final one in the opening credits
[14:12] <@Sylocat> AHAH... Gamagoori
[14:12] <@Sylocat> Aw, he got demoted?
[14:13] <@Sylocat> Oh, Mako
[14:13] <@Sylocat> Ah, Mako wants to start a brawl in the stands, like a hockey game
[14:13] <@Sylocat> Ahah... he mutes them on his phone
[14:14] <@Sylocat> "Wild monkey?"

[14:14] <Froborr> "Different relationship?"
[14:14] <@Sylocat> Ooh, is that yuri subtext?
[14:14] <FoME> The "Sana" in Sanagayama means monkey.
[14:14] <@Sylocat> Ah
[14:14] <FoME> Each of the Elite Four has a bit of an animal motif going.
[14:14] <@Sylocat> So, what's his combat form look like
[14:14] <@Sylocat> Ah, he's Tron Robocop, of course
[14:15] <FoME> With keyboards everywhere.
[14:15] <@Sylocat> That looks vaguely suggestive
[14:15] <Froborr> that a power button on the back of his head?
[14:15] <@Sylocat> Like Travis Touchdown recharging his lightsaber
[14:16] <@Sylocat> Ah, she skips right to the standard solution
[14:16] <Arrlaari> She's right about this, it's a really common shounen fight anime trop
[14:16] <FoME> Genre savviness is a mighty weapon.
[14:16] <@Sylocat> Wait, he's actually questioning the fantasy premise?
[14:17] <@Sylocat> "White butterflies on a snowman?"
[14:17] <Arrlaari> He's the nerd, of course he is
[14:17] <FoME> Ad.
[14:17] <@Sylocat> I thought it was a white cow eating marshmallows in a snowstorm
[14:17] <@Sylocat> Is it another 2-minute ad break?
[14:17] <FoME> 75 seconds. On the last one now.
[14:18] <@Sylocat> Whew
[14:18] <FoME> And we're good.
[14:19] <@Sylocat> Whoa
[14:19] <FoME> Operation: Sahaquiel
[14:19] <Froborr> There's WAY too much episode left for this to be it.
[14:19] <@Sylocat> Is she going to fight two at once in this episode?
[14:20] <@Sylocat> Well, at least Ryuko is genre savvy
[14:20] <@Sylocat> "Does not compute"
[14:20] <@Sylocat> WHAT?
[14:20] <@Sylocat> He forfeits?

[14:20] <@Sylocat> I did not see that coming
[14:20] <@Sylocat> Yep, she's gonna fight two in one episode
[14:21] <FoME> Ad.
[14:22] <@Sylocat> That was... unexpected
[14:22] <FoME> Roughly 100 seconds. Last one, thankfully.
[14:22] <@Sylocat> I like Houka
[14:22] <@Sylocat> er, Collar McDatapants
[14:22] <FoME> Collar "Houka" McDatapants. The Third.
[14:22] <@Sylocat> He knows that we're itching for the bigger fight
[14:23] <Arrlaari> Hey FoME, I remember when I saw this on Crunchyroll a while back, Gamagoori didn't have underwear when he came to the stands. Am I recalling incorrectly?
[14:23] <Arrlaari> Watching now on Netflix, he has underwear
[14:23] <FoME> And we're good.
[14:23] <@Sylocat> Whoa, that crowd's arm movements are creepy
[14:23] <@Sylocat> They're both joining Mako in the stands
[14:24] <@Sylocat> Are they going to make out, or what?
[14:24] <Froborr> More yuri subtext.
[14:24] <Froborr> Oh good, it's Drum Majorette.
[14:24] <FoME> Oh, Mako.
[14:24] <@Sylocat> Her themed attacks are gonna be awesome
[14:25] <Arrlaari> Oh yeah, during the brief fanservice scene last episode there was a shot of Mako doing the blood out of nostrils thing
[14:25] * FoME Quit (Quit: Page closed)
[14:25] <Froborr> Sweet,she gets a mech.
[14:25] <@Sylocat> Holy shit
[14:25] <Froborr> Oh crap, it's MADE OF SPEAKERS?
[14:25] * FoME has joined ##rabbitcube
[14:25] <Froborr> Win.
[14:26] <@Sylocat> She is my new favorte of the Elite Four
[14:26] <@Sylocat> She attacks with sonic waves, right?
[14:26] <FoME> I knew when I didn't see reactions to that, my connection had died.
[14:26] <@Sylocat> Eeyup

[14:26] <@Sylocat> Oh, music puns
[14:26] <@Sylocat> This is gonna be... oh, that is EPIC
[14:27] <@Sylocat> her theme music has the opening notes of Jingle Bells
[14:27] <@Sylocat> Ouch, that is some badass trash talk
[14:27] <Froborr> You cannot overcome the power of the William Tell Overture!
[14:28] <@Sylocat> Oh, they go back to Kindergarten?
[14:28] <@Sylocat> I thought Satsuki's career started in middle school
[14:28] <@Sylocat> They were friends even before then
[14:28] <Froborr> Lol, she's doing the sun thing from the jungle gym.
[14:28] <@Sylocat> Symbolism!
[14:29] <FoME> Even when she was in kindergarden, hers were mighty eyebrows.
[14:29] <FoME> Plus, you know, the whole shining light from above thing.
[14:29] <@Sylocat> Aww
[14:29] <@Sylocat> The yuri subtext is strong with this episode
[14:29] <Froborr> RECORDER MISSILE
[14:29] <Arrlaari> So yeah, that's a popular ship
[14:30] <@Sylocat> And now she's rules lawyering
[14:30] <FoME> Throwing your sword always works.
[14:30] <@Sylocat> Speaking of making up rules
[14:30] <@Sylocat> Ouch
[14:31] <@Sylocat> Cymbal sawblades, of course
[14:31] <@Sylocat> Music score laser beams
[14:31] <@Sylocat> I knew her themed attacks were gonna be awesome, but not THIS awesome
[14:31] <Froborr> Music score BENDY laser beams. The best kind.
[14:32] <@Sylocat> I forgot it was called the "Naturals Election"
[14:32] <@Sylocat> Ooh, don't become a one-trick pony, Ryuko
[14:32] <@Sylocat> Gamagoori and Collar McDatapants don't give no fucks
[14:32] <Arrlaari> It's cool, all those students in the audience have 1 star uniforms
[14:33] <Arrlaari> They'll be fine
[14:33] <@Sylocat> Ooh, Ryuko goes full Eva!
[14:33] <Froborr> Rocket boot Ryuko? That'll work.

[14:33] <FoME> What was that you were saying about one-trick ponies, Sylo?
[14:33] <@Sylocat> My mistake
[14:33] <Froborr> Cliffhanger?
[14:33] <@Sylocat> And now the guy who's even more perverted than the rest is coming back to the battlefield
[14:33] <Froborr> Cliffhanger.
[14:33] <@Sylocat> Ooh, she's PISSED
[14:34] <Arrlaari> Yeah, Jakuzure is too cool to get only part of one episode.
[14:34] <FoME> Air superiority complex
[14:35] <@Sylocat> I love the closing theme song
[14:35] <Froborr> So, that was a lot better than the last one.
[14:35] <@Sylocat> So yeah... I liked this episode
[14:35] <Froborr> Started meh, but the second half more than made up for it.
[14:36] <Froborr> Any final thoughts before I copypasta to the blog?
[14:36] <Arrlaari> I realized too late that I could have said "two popular ships"
[14:36] <Arrlaari> because Jakuzure's flying speaker arsenal is also popular and arguably a ship
