    Weapons dealers are operating under shady terms. Some are just more willing to call in the bigger guns when they want to.

    I just remembered something else - she was also the voice of Kiva from Megas XLR.

    Episode 6 was pretty sweet,

    Gene/Jim and Melfina's great moments.

    "Twilight" Suzuka, my favorite awesome hot villainess, best awesome female character ever next to Melfina/Aisha/Hilda, Faye Valentine/Radical Ed, Fujiko/Rebecca, Michiko/Hatchin, Mikasa/Sasha/Ymir/Historia, and Hideyoshi/Oda/Akechi/leyasu(Battle Girls: Time Paradox):D.

    Wendee Lee(Kiva/Faye/Haruhi Suzumiya/Tatsuki/Yoruichi) as "Twilight" Suzuka, awesome/surprising to me, she does look like Faye Valentine, sweet, my favorite epic voice actress:D.

    Gene vs. "Twilight" Suzuka was pretty sweet/intense, if Suzuka bees an anti-heroine ally, that will be sweet.

    I thought that this episode was pretty good for the most part. I don't know what I was expecting with Fred, but I don't think that I was expecting him to be overtly gay. It wasn't the worst depiction of a gay person I've seen in an anime, although his comment about seeing Jim grown up in a few years did come off as a bit too creepy. He didn't know what personal space meant either, but he still seemed at least friendly enough.

    The action was pretty solid and I liked seeing Gene battle against Suzuka. Whether it was sword against gun or Gene using another sword against her, there was some good tension and back and forth motion during their fights. I wasn't a fan of how they resolved the conflict though. Gene basically stopping Suzuka by nearly taking off her clothes and then smelling her rob was really creepy. I realized that they wouldn't want to have her defeated in her first episode and she will be returning at some point, but it seemed like this only worked because she's a woman and that they wanted to have a bit of fanservice with her again. Plus, it felt like it kind of underminded her skills in a way if one accidental pull from her clothes left her unable to fight back. It also doesn't help that this setup makes me think that they're going to force a romance, one-sided or otherwise, between her and Gene because he was the only person who stopped her from killing her target. Maybe I'm just kind of used to those kinds of setups, but that was my first thought after the episode ended.

    Overall, the episode was still pretty good and had some solid action, but I just have mixed feelings on how the conflict was resolved. It left it open for Suzuka to show up again and so that they didn't have to spend time protecting Fred, but the execution seemed a bit strange to say the least to me.

    Having returned to Sentinel III after events involving his most recent client, Gene Starwind now hopes to resume normal operations of Starwind and Hawking Enterprises.

    However, three things are now in play:

    1.) he now has his very own spaceship, and a nice one at that (granted, its original owners are experiencing a bit of seller's remorse—considering it wasn't exactly for sale when he found it—but finders keepers nonetheless);

    2.) his popularity with women has surged dramatically—one of them gave him the spaceship, one of them came with the spaceship, and two others have since taken issues with him;

    3.) the belief that his life will return to normal in spite of the first two facts is about to be proven CATASTROPHICALLY wrong.

    Episode 7: "Creeping Evil"

    Don't forget about the MacDougal Brothers. They're somehow connected to Gene's past, not to mention that they're actively unscrupulous mercenaries. The one who is thus far unnamed--and believe me, it's going to be shocking what his name is--is a pretty boy who is rather childlike, and not in a good way.

    They will return in a future episode. For now, let us focus on this week.

    Last time: Somebody asked what a lady samurai is called. I believe the term is "onna-bugeisha."

    The word of the week is "Hazanko."

    Never saw that blood back then, didja?

    Poor Gene can't get it up.

    ...I mean, get the ship off the ground.

    Hey, Gene, you should leave before Gilliam can do just th-....wait. Does Gilliam even have a mouth capable of biting you?

    Eww. Raw tomatoes.

    Jim's in love with his car. He's got a feel for his automobile.

    It's rude to eavesdrop on other people's conversations.
