Obligatory mecha show of the season.

Trying to make my scribble posts less cluttered and more to the point.

Biggest thing that stood out for me between these two episodes is the 8 min rule; if you can survive the first 8 minutes of battle, you are in the safe zone.

Of course that was a load of crap, it seems anyone that survived past that marker except for Yui, had a horrible death.

For example: 2nd and 3rd place winners were ripped from their mechas and eaten. The black stuff is all censorship (i.e. more gory in the blu-ray release)

Well at the end there’s a 3 year time skip, looks like Yui has recovered and gained quite a few ranks.
