Winter 2019 Grab Bag Week 9: Girly Air Force

Gripen is annoyed

Girly Air Force Episode 8

Time for a somewhat mid-season check-in on this series. I haven't talked about it in a while. Honestly, I don't think the show has been too bad so far, but it does get a bit monotonous. In recent episodes, it seems like they're regularly introducing new Daughters into the mix, when I was expecting more of a focus on the main three. Heck, we still haven't learned all too much about Eagle yet.

The mission succeeds

The pacing in this series strikes me as strange. The entire operation, which was supposed to be a big deal takes less than five minutes in this episode. This is a mission that they're retrying after having failed in the past, so it seems like it should be a fairly major event. Instead, it's somewhat relegated to a mild opening act.

As a side note, I know it's been a while since I last talked about this series, but was there ever any doubt that Kei would solve Gripen's flying problems by jumping in the cockpit with her?

The Daughters hit the beach

I mean, it's not like I'm trying to say I need more time devoted to the obligatory beach episode or anything...

Kei meets Viper

I think the concept behind Viper is quite interesting, with the idea that her appearance changes based on who's looking at her. I'm a little annoyed that Kei densely insists that she's Minghua even after having it explained to him by Yashirodoori, but what can I expect from that guy?

Kei tells Minghua that a skirt doesn't suit her

I think that Kei's relationship with Minghua is my least favorite part about this series. And it has nothing to do with Minghua, to be honest. She's fine as a character, but I think that Kei acts like a jerk to her for no real gain.
