    Jet is going a little overboard he shouldn't be soooo mean to those little guys 007's speech about crossing dimensons was funny and unexpected until it was so quickly over and his turning into a sofa to catch 003 and then making a face at her was silly! light power light power!

    Those kids went from total pansies at the start of the ep to really freaking creepy by the end.

    Seriously, they're probably going to go hit up a convenience store before they head back home.

    This episode (my first) screamed mundane throughout it tonight. That and the acting seemed all too wooden now, and the aliens sounded lame. I think they also tamed the dialogue a bit because this felt like an episode where the speech was like such.

    I did like the nice twist in the end where they were given hope to fight, but yet it seems that they may become what they were trying to defend themselves from.

    Man this show is deep... it's just like Kikaider. Not a suprise... being they were both created by the same guy.

    Why must every end so bitter sweet? ... such is life I guess.

    I guess that's why this show isn't on durring the day... it's like an Adult Swim anime. All these depressing things happening all the time. I wonder if WS saw a bit of this and thought "maybe this will be a bit happier later on"... if that's the case... my best guess is they are wrong.

    Another thing that makes it like an Adult Swim is that it's all too easy to fall asleep when you watch it. (DUSK doesn't seem to have that problem, at least for me) I guess AS needs to pick up some less boring animes... yeah that could probably help the ratings but it's a shame that the mature ones are the ones that are boring and the more teen oriented ones are the ones that hold people's attention better.

    That being said... I'm glad this isn't on Adult Swim because adults aren't the only ones who should understand the issues brought up in Cyborg 009.

    And I've gotta say it was really ominous when the aliens turned their ship into one that looked like their enemies'. It made me think that maybe their enemies' were really rouges of their own kind and the robots were only the guards... I think I'm reading too deeply into this.

    Sheesh, this is one of those shows that you can long discussions about over tea or coffee...

    Deep Thoughts: 6/25 Fri, er, late night

    1. Cyborg "ballerina" 003 to Cyborg "shapeshifter" 007: "Is that a coin under the couch pillow, or are you just glad to catch me?" :anime:

    2. The aliens are probably talking in stilted English because they don't normally speak, much less speak Earthener.

    3. It's alive! They've created a monster!
    Didn't the alien kids just kill the crew of that enemy ship?

    4. When the alien kids transformed their ship to look like the enemy's, it reinforced the feeling that the kids have transformed into their own worst enemy. Wouldn't it be cliche if their enemy turns out to be their own kind too?

    I actually liked this episode, but I was surprised by the depressing ending to the episode. It was an interesting conflict between protecting peaceful ways, yet still defending yourself and the lines to be careful about crossing. While 002's message of care and understanding got through to the aliens, they didn't actually listen too well in the end. I began to suspect that something was up when they went after the alien ship, even though it was already fleeing. However, I don't know what was more unsettling, the way the aliens were acting at the end of the episode or that 003 was the only one who seemed to truly understand what was going on.

    I'm with Redboot, any gas stations along the way home better watch out for those guys.

    Stepping on the flower was some ominious for-shadowing...

    I don't think that's the last we'll see of them.

    And I really think it was rogues of their own kind that were their "enemies"
