    This episode is what happens when you get a true gainax veteran to storyboard and animate part of the episode.

    Not to knock on the others,they've all got a solid track record but I think you agree that there's a difference lol.

  2. The first thing I did after watching the ep was check out who the A.D. was, wondering if it was one of the old-timers, especially if they'd worked on TTGL. But while they're industry vets, I didn't see a lot of GAINAX in the background of Itagaki Shin or Oda Mayumi.

    Interestingly, the great Imaishi Hiroyuki will be storyboarding episode 6, so I'm really looking foreword to that one.

    So wait,the episode count is weird in this show anf I can never tell if gainax counted the 2 parter as one episode or as 2 episodes (à la panty and stocking) because I could swear an eyecatch at one point in the episode seemed to imply it was episode 6 we were watching.

  4. I'm assuming that's a sort of "chapter count" until I see differently. The ED has run 5 times, so I'm saying this was episode 5! The subbers seem to agree as well…
