Robotics;Notes Episode 12

Hmm...the story went to Jun for this episode after the break. I expected Misa's warning from the last one to be swept away like always, I guess. But was Jun's stuff handled in a single episode? That was sure fast...she's still scared of robots, but she's back with her grandfather. There was a brief aside with the Kimijima Report, but that was forgotten once he got to the Robot Clinic.

We got a new opening (which I think is better) and a new ending (which is questionably about the same?). To be honest, I wasn't a huge fan of the first themes, so I guess I'd call these an improvement. So where exactly is this going? Are we going into the characters problems for now and solving them? Seems kinda boring, but I guess it has to be done eventually.

    This was coming for awhile. Unlike Psycho-pass where the other enforcers backgrounds aren't necessarily germane to the plot, Jun is a main character of the series and her character had absolutely no development. Every other character if you notice has had development already, so this is tying up the loose end.

    As for the kimijima report, this is a classic method writers use to keep the reader engaged. They feed you a tiny bit of information relative to the main plot throughout the episode, so you keep watching hoping that at the end you get a bit more, in this case the contents of the kimijima report #3. By not giving it to us this week, it sets up a big reveal next week.

    As for the new ed and op. I dont find either one to be impactful or an improvement. I guess you could say I dont like the new op as much, but I wasnt that partial to the old one. Maybe its just my experience with these winter seasons. The OP change almost never to me is better than the original OP when it comes in the middle of the season. Guilty Crown being a recent exception. I guess its usually because the music a series uses does affect my view on how good of a show it is ( a great show always has a great soundtrack. The reverse isnt always true, but this is.). So when they change the OP midseason I guess its a detriment to me because the music factors in to part of my appreciation of the show.

    However, I generally only find this in shows where the op changes mid season. Shows with two seasons usually do okay OP and ED wise (Jormungand, and Jormungand Perfect Order were phenomenal and a recent example in this regard)

    That's true...Subaru hasn't gotten much though

    Well, it's just time, right? The midseason changes theoretically have less of a resting period. I guess they don't plan that far ahead.

    I was just sad that Frau-bou didn't get a single line or role in this ep ;_;

    haha...if you say so. I have no complaints

    Subaru has had enough. I mean you know he was on the SS Amneone or whatever that stupid ship is called.

    You know he hung out with the girl and her sister as a kid. I mean he lived a fairly average and ordinary life. Theres nothing really important to develop there. Its not like Jun or Mister Pleaides who just up out of nowhere with no background or relation to the main characters at all.

    I suppose the convenience store owner needs some development tho, but I suspect that will come in the big reveal episode along with the girl's sister and Kimijima Kou.

    Also how can not complain about lack of Frau? Frau-kun makes this show hilarious with her turrets filled rants.
