Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (4)

    • The colony Akito comes from was the Utalpi colony at least it sound like that.

    • People who have nano injections to pilot the robots are called yellow pilots on earth.

    • The first robot that we see is called Estavalis.

    • Running Titles:
      This episode is the only one in the whole series that doesn't have the standard opening credits and instead chronicles the first half of the 1st battle of mars whilst "You get to burning" plays in the Background. This is simmilar to one of Xebec's other shows, "Negima!" (Magical Teacher Negima), which did something similar in Episode 23 following an important event in the previous episode.

  • QUOTES (30)

    • Migumi: Armed missiles approaching!
      Gai: He's gonna block them with his robot.
      Yurika: No!
      Akito: Jun, stop!

    • Akito: Wait a second! Wait a second! You're getting this all wrong, Jun. I'm not even interested in Yurika. Cross my heart. Space cook's honor.
      Jun: I don't believe you! And besides this has nothing to do with our personal lives.

    • Yurika: All right. I'm entrusting the fate of the Nadesico and all of her crew to you Akito, but promise me that... you'll come back alive!

    • Jun: Yurika, do you actually know this person?
      Yurika: Uh-huh. He's my knight and shinning armor. Whenever I was in trouble Akito was always there to help me through it.

    • Akito: Hey wait, just one second here. Just what are you doing on this ship anyway?
      Prospector: She's the captain of the Nadesico.
      Akito: Huh?

    • Yurika: The Nadesico will go through the underwater submarine duct, and into the open ocean. Flank the enemy from behind, and obliterate them? We'll need a decoy.
      Gai: That's where Gai Daigoji comes in!

    • Gai: Hey you, up on the catwalk?
      Akito: Me?
      Gai: Is there anyone else up there? My most precious possession is still in that cockpit. Could you get it for me? Pretty please.
      Akito: Gah! A gekigangar robot toy is his most precious possession. Just how old is that guy mentally?

    • Prospector: Well now that that's settled let's assemble our human resources.
      Mr. Hory: Our crew?
      Prospector: Yes our crew. I've chosen the very best, of course a few of them have some slight personality disorders.

    • Engineer guy: Come on, let's go. I'm ready to boogie.
      Prospector: But don't you want to negotiate your contract first?
      Engineer guy: It's fine, I don't care. If it means getting away from those two I'd work in the bowels of hell.

    • Akito: Wow!
      Yurika: I'm sorry we've kept you waiting, Akito.
      Akito: What'd you mean? It hasn't been 10 minutes yet, has it?
      Yurika: I've rushed the schedule for your sake.

    • Akito: Hey, I'm actually not too bad at this pilot stuff after all.
      (flashback and sees Ai)
      Akito: But what's the difference?

    • Ruri: The elevator is about to reach ground level.
      Akito: Wait.
      Gai: Give me back my Gekigangar.
      Akito: Just shut up!

    • Gai: Evil Jovians, fear my wrath. Uh!
      Engineer: Now what?
      Gai: Yes, well, actually, it's my leg. I think I hurt it quite badly.
      Engineer: Of course it hurts. It's broken, you idiot.

    • Gai: I'm Gai. Gai Daigoji! But you can call me Gai.
      Engineer: Well, this says your name is Jiro Yamada.
      Gai: That's just the boring name my mother happened to give me.

    • Prospector: From now on, you'll be a cook on the Nadesico.
      Akito: Nadesico?
      Prospector: Yes. The Nadesico.

    • Jun: Hey Yurika, I know it's late, but do you really need all this stuff?
      Yurika: Jun! A girl can't be too prepared, and I've spent 3 days picking those out. So just find a place to put them.
      Jun: Yes, ma'am.

    • Mr. Hory: There's nothing wrong with our crew, sir. Of course, they may be a little unusual, but they're all experts in their fields and our captain has never been defeated in the simulation.

    • Yurika: You know, this is gonna sound really strange, but haven't you and I met someplace before. And don't you feel that there's some connection here?
      Akito: No, honestly I really don't feel like that at all, actually.

    • Admiral Misumaru: Yurika, damn it. Yurika, you were supposed to leave an hour ago. (opens door)
      Yurika: Ah!!!!
      Admiral Misumaru: My little girl is a woman.

    • Akito: (pilots a vehicle) I'll try to hold that thing off. Get out of here.
      Ai: No. Stop!
      Akito: Ah!!!

    • Ai: You're a nice man. Are you married? I'm Ai. What's your name?
      (explosion)
      Akito: Get down!

    • Costamer:Dudes the fry cook is freaking out
      Akito: *Deep breathing*
      Customer #2: Hey your fry cook isn't sick is he?
      Boss: Na just scared
      Customer #3: of what?
      Boss: The jovians!
      Akito: *Flash back* than screams
      Akito: *stops* uh damn i burned it.

    • "Not only is she an officer, but she's well-endowed as well."
      Admiral Misumaru seems to feel more than fatherly love for his daughter.

    • Minato: Are you proposing to vaporise our own fighters?
      Munetake: Well, why not? They're gonna die anyway.
      Megumi: Would you call that cold-blooded, or just plain cowardly?

    • Gai: Every time I move my arm, the robot's arm moves as well! Am I a born pilot or what?
      Seiya: Actually, with the latest developments in image feedback technology, a newborn child would have done just as well as you did.

    • Gai: When I heard we were piloting real robots, I couldn't get here fast enough!

    • (Meeting the crew...)
      Yurika: Have no fear, your new captain is here! (pause) There's nothing like making a good first impression.

    • Yurika: But I can't let you act as a decoy against the enemy!
      Akito: Huh? Act as a what?
      Yurika: But I know how devoted you are towards conducting your mission, and mere words from a sentimental woman wouldn't sway you, will they?
      Akito: Well, they might!

    • (Cross-purposes...)
      Akito: Will you stop? I've got a question to ask you and it's important.
      Yurika: A question? You mean that question?

    • Prospector: Ah, but this assignment would involve a lot of young women.
      Goat: Oh?
      Prospector: And your bonus- ah, let's see, how's this?
      Goat: May I ask you one other question?
      Prospector: Of course.
      Goat: Is that after taxes?
