  • As Renton still tries to get used to life aboard the Gekko, he is still being attacked.

    This was not one of my favorite episodes, but it does showcase some good character development, and interaction. The episode is pretty much just Renton getting made fun of by Eureka's kids. In the end though, he stoops to their level and plays a prank of his own (a really big one too!). This episode shows how much Renton wants Eureka to like him, but it also shows how even though he may think he is one, Renton is not a mature adult yet. Good episode for character development, but besides that not too much for this one.moreless

    There is nothing wrong with this episode Technically. The English cast does good job with exception of Kirk Thornton (Matthieu) infamously mispronouncing “Eureka” (Supposed to be pronounced, ey-ooh-reh-ka). A weird choose of words for some of the dialog as well but then again so does every other Anime. There are a couple of funny scenes as well (like a kid giving the finger to Renton). Will make you giggle at the very least. The overlying theme of the episode is Ok but it just becomes really corny. It becomes difficult to watch and a bit embarrassing. Again, this is not Bang Zoom! Entertainment or Bandai’s fault, just the story. This is just my opinion though, a regular 19 year old. To me, as I said, it felt just down right cheesy and corny. If you think you’ll enjoy watching Renton winning over Eureka Kids then you like this episode, otherwise you’ll be begging to turn off the tube.moreless
  • Renton is being annoyed by Eurekas children. Theyre pulling all kinds of jokes and stunts on him and making him mad.They want him out because they dont want him stealing eureka away from them.He uses the Nirvash to stall for time for the gekkostate and gemoreless

    I thought that this episode ws okay ALTHOUGH I feel that more action needs to happen. It is pretty funny and I like how at the end the children take responsibility for their actions and join renton in his punishment and also give him respect because he didnt snitch on them and other things that he did. Hopefully the next episode will be better than this one.
