    Episode 1

    Getting schooled before school.

    Azumi is off to school for the inaugural class, and right off the bat, Shuri has made quite an impression with her swordplay, all while Matoi knows how to use that doll. But before this school can get up and running, the place comes under attack by a rogue Zex in space, and while Rigel's blast is powerful, it didn't scratch it as it only revealed the enemy. And then Azumi collapses from the recoil of the attack. Having not watched through Z/X Ignition, this definitely feels different than its predecessor from what I remember watching, mostly because I remember Ignition for being all over the place where as at least this show feels a lot more focused. Anyway, my expectations coming in were pretty low, and at least it's going to keep my interest for awhile. If I'm going to continue to watch this show, I'll have to go back and watch Ignition.

    As usual, trial period procedures apply, and even though I have yet to see Ignition, I feel that it's not really necessary to do so.

      Re: Episode 1

      This looks like it has potential to be fun. That said considering how the episode ended, it won't be just "fun and games" for the cast. Still I like Rigel and Azumi's relationship already and it's nice they get to be the leads this time. Or well an alternate version of them anyway.

      In any case, the only real benefit to watching "Ignition" before hand would "trivia" for lack of a better term. Ie being able to "recognize" a character and being able to note how they're different in this Alternate Story.

        Episode 2

        Live and learn.

        And Azumi's desire to live got her to take action, but she and Rigel just aren't strong enough to take out that thing. Just when they were about to bite dust against that enemy from outer space, in comes a dragon and a bunch of veteran girls to overpower that monster. And just like that, school life really can begin. The show just lacks a plot all while whatever plot there is, that's the kind of stuff I have seen time and again. Anyway, I'll give it one more episode seeing that the mood is apparently supposed to shift.
