    Episode 10
    Japanese Title: Baptism
    Dub Title: Baptism

    WARNING: Spoilers will not be tolerated! Yes, I realize this series has been around since 2002, and I realize it did air on the FUNi Colours TV anime block (It aired back in 2006, so this isn't a dub premiere), but this is its first exposure on [adult swim].

    Synopsis: Seina Yamda is your average ordinary everyday teenager, if you take away one thing. Seina is the most unlucky boy known of in the entire universe. However Seina has decided to join the prestigious GP Academy. He hoped that the training at the GP would allow him to win the love of his life, assuming that the two women fighting over him didn't kill each other first. Now, as a Captain, Seina finds he can gain new found respect or ultimately lead the GP down the path of a horrendous defeat, but which way will his luck lead him to?

    FYI- Thanks go to Daikun for correcting my mistake. It forgot to change the date on my outline, so originally the airdate showed 1/5 instead of 1/12.

    TONIGHT:



    Your cast of characters:
    [​IMG] Seina Yamada: The main character who seems to have horrible luck. Seina has enlisted in the GP and hopes to use it to his advantage to gain the love of Kiriko, but now he has been made a captain and finds that Kiriko is one of the individuals he is to command.

    [​IMG] Kiriko Masaki: A young lady that has always been friends with Seina, despite his horrible luck. Kiriko has always favored Seina and done things like make him cake. After being demoted from immigration to the GP Academy as an instructor, Kiriko was told to turn Seina into a man during the next 6 months. Now that Seina is a captain, she has been made a member of his crew, but her mission hasn't changed.

    [​IMG] Amane Kaunaq: A mysterious lady that Seina runs into through a horrible series of events. She asked Seina to join the GP, but consequences followed. Amane was demoted from second class detective to a GP Instructor, and now she has been made a member of Seina's crew with the responsibility of rounding up pirates any way possible.

    [​IMG] NB: NB is a specially made AI Assistant Robot. However Amane decides to tamper with NB, completely altering his original programming. Now NB is willing to serve any of the ladies or his master, but he also has a few ulterior motives.

    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG] Alan, Barry, and Cohen: These three musketeers are former members of a cargo ship. They took a gig as pirate decoys, not knowing Seina would be their captain, solely to get back into space regularly. Now the 3 find themselves in danger regularly, but they are also gaining some respect for Seina's unique ability.


    [​IMG] Tarant Shank: Shank is recognized as the most dangerous and deadly pirate. The GP has constantly looked for ways to beat him, but they've never been successful. Shank continues to attack and and all ships that come his way, but little does he know him and his bloodthirsty brigands are about to run face to face with Seina Yamada. Will Seina's bad luck lead to Shank's ultimate victory, or will Shank find bad luck thrown his way instead?​

    Curse my need to finish a series I've already started...

    LAst time: Pirates invade and Captain Useless is Captain Useless who is useless.

    Yep. You like him.

    So he's the carrot and they're the rabbit.

    Green Haired Lady: Is that all she said?

    That joke is getting really old. :p

    ----
    Wait, you're going to assign a cadet to command a starship? I would have thought the GP had better standards than Starfleet.

    I love how all Japanese Space Opera have these massive, teired Command Bridges. Sure it doesn't make sense, but it is stylish.

    "I'll be the best bait there ever was!"
    He said that line with more pride than anyone who's ever had to say that should ever have.

    Hey! Galaxy Express 999! Get your own series!

    "Sensors indicate...we're screwed."
    And everyone's dropping photon torpedoes in their pants.

    Uhh...pudding? What?

    Crewman: Sensors indicate.. we're [doomed].

    Nice to know they have Lt. Pessimist on watch.

    I'm starting to like this episode. Sure, it started off slowly, and I haven't followed the series. But I love Boarding Actions :D



    Glad I wasn't the only person thinking that.

    Hey, the Captain is watching this episode on the viewscreen!

    The Predator!

    The only thing more pathetic than the ship's defenses is this guy's haircut.

    All the technology in the galaxy, and the GP doesn't even have Power Armor.

    Or for that matter, decent Thermo-optic Camouflage. GitS has better tech than these guys.

    Kiriko, that outfit is so not you.

    And of course Seina and what's-her-name remain totally oblivious to the pirates. Up until that point.

    Bang.

    Of course, the more sinister hunter taunts his prey by shooting around him and not at him.

    If you have time to stare at him, you have time to RUN!

    I don't think you've met face-to-face before.

    Whoa, you could fit that WHOLE GUN in his mouth.

    "Kiriko?"
    No, more like a T-1000 in a bloodstained bodysuit.

    I was right. Now she's all "come with me if you want to live."

    You would think when the ship is falling apart around them, they'd be running then. But no, they keep on staring.

    Agumon!?

    Real world militaries would use experienced officers to command a ship. In anime, they send Midshipmen who haven't even left the Officer School command these things.

    "It's just...I've never had anyone hate me before!"
    Clearly you have never been on the Internet.

    Two girls, the main character and three horny guys. This won't end well.

    Hey, nothing bad happened to Seina in this episode!

    Save for the pirate attack (which is par for the course for the GP), he wasn't a slapstick victim this week.

    Other than being chased down and taunted by a psycho?

    Poor kid, the victim of changing times. Remember when Harem Anime protagonists weren't the target of abuse?
