Heaven’s Lost Property Æ’ #05 — Panties Rider Kabuto

October 29th, 2010


He really needed a superhero mask to complete the ensemble, not that fruity helmet.


A very lame episode. The first half was Sugata exploring Synapse and learning a little bit about it, but it was little more than him going "Huh? What? Huh? What?" and then explaining everything just before deus ex time’s-conveniently-up whisks him away to safety. Unfortunately, that meant that it was about 5 minutes of walking around and watching nothing happen before two minutes of expositional dumping. Let’s try to make a narrative here, eh? More discovery, less abruptly spewing out information before a cry of "Sugata away!" "I shall return."

The second half was sort of a try at comedy, but I think the show had all its energy sucked out of it by that point. Tomoki used a random gizmo that Sohara knocked off of Synapse in part one to reconstruct his Panties Robo and go ride it around briefly before Sohara reduced it back to scrap. I expect more from this show than a montage of Tomoki going about his daily routine with a robot surreptitiously pasted onto the background and Astraea blowing herself up because she’s too stupid to remember to throw dynamite.

    What’s the story behind all these mini-top-hats? Not that I mind them…

    I’m hoping for some fireworks next episode.

    What the hell is this shit? Another shitty anime-only filler? What the hell are you doing, AIC ASTA!?

  • Ransom says:

    The first half is an advance in the actual plot of the manga, I think it was reasonable good and very faithful to the manga. The second half wasn’t that good, but I think it’s better than what they did this week in Kami nomi zo Shiru Sekai… It was that or unreasonably extending Sugata’s visit to synapse.


    Can’t wait to see her again :)

    pantsu robot was voiced by Akira Ishida, the same person who voiced Asuran in Seed. Since tomoki is voiced by the same person who voiced kira, it made things hella funny. Also, zomg!! its Hiyori~

    first half was very interesting. Second half was more of the same fan service/comedy stuff.

    This is Sora Oto,what do you guys expect?It’s fanservice mostly with the main story inserted here and there until probably the last 3 eps.I think it’s pretty much inline with the first season although it’s not outdoing it by far.I found the second half amusing since it’s original and reminds me of the Kamen Rider series(Masked Rider Black)and his sentient motorcycle in the 80’s-90’s.
