Darling in the FranXX Episode 2: Sure, why not? Seems like a reasonable way to pilot

I found this episode more interesting because of how things were introduced, but I'm not sure I'm sold on the premise yet. I guess the whole sexual innuendo thing could work out if the show doesn't take itself too seriously. I'm just not convinced that I've seen enough goofiness to support that. I think this also goes back to what I was saying last week about being subtle.

I am glad that they addressed the situation with Naomi, though. I was wondering what happened to her. It looks like they took care of her off screen.

I'm a little annoyed about the memory loss aspect. I'm sure I'm just overly curious about what happened in the fight last week. Based on what we saw this week, I can't imagine what they would need to hide from us. Right?

These names on the screen kinda help. I think they mentioned last week that Hiro gave everyone names, which is pretty evident in this scene. All of the names look like they're based on each character's code number.

Yeah, I got nothing.

I liked how proactive Hiro seemed in this episode about getting back into the fight. Still, I'm wondering why Ichigo's dialogue shows up to him as coming from the face of the Franxx. Is the robot itself talking when this happens?

    From what I understand the girls job in the mech is to fuse with it and control it like it was their own body. Once they fuse the face appears on the mech and the girls for all intents and purposes become the mech and its their will and control that makes the mech do everything it does. That is why when the girls talk after they have fused the robot face comes out, at this point they basically are the robot. However controlling the mech takes pretty much all of their effort so they need the help from the male to provide directions and agency to fight effectively. That is why Hiro and Ichigo's mech stopped working once their link broke down. However as we saw in this episode and was hinted at in episode 1 a girl can take control of the mech an fight by themselves but it is very dangerous and can only be done for a short time.

    It looks like the robots follow the commands of the girl. But to successfully pilot the mech both have to linked and in charge.
