STAR DRIVER: Kagayaki no Takuto – 10

「そしてマリノの初恋」 (Soshite Marino no Hatsukoi)
“And Marino’s First Love”

When it comes to a baseball episode, leave it up to the “springtime of youth idiot” Tsunashi Takuto to draw wary eyes from all the Kiraboshi Juuji Dan members with his dazzling play style.

Suffice to say, this episode pleased me on many levels, both in terms of story and my own personal gloating rights.

STAR DRIVER: Kagayaki no Takuto – 08

「いつだって流星のように」 (Itsudatte Nagareboshi no yō ni)
“Always Like a Shooting Star”

I certainly didn’t expect Takuto and Sugata’s confrontation to turn out like this, and truthfully, I have mixed feelings about it.

STAR DRIVER: Kagayaki no Takuto – 06

「王の柱」 (Ō no Hashira)
“The King’s Pillar”

Despite what the preview showed last week, I was half-expecting this episode to end up in Zero Time again, with Sugata in the pilot seat being the only difference. Going into the episode with those mixed feelings, I must say that I was pleasantly surprised that that was not the case. Instead, we were given some nice action scenes outside of Zero Time, something we haven’t seen since the little scuffle between Takuto and George in episode 1.

「綺羅星十字団の挑戦」 (Kiraboshi Jūjidan no Chōsen)
“The Challenge of the Holy Order of Glittering Stars”

Well, this certainly was a fairly risqué episode, with the formal introduction of Watanabe Kanako (Niina Ayano) bringing with it plenty of sex appeal to the series.

STAR DRIVER: Kagayaki no Takuto – 01

「銀河美少年」 (Ginga Bishōnen)
“Galactic Pretty Boy”

When I first heard that BONES, the studio responsible for producing masterpieces such as Eureka Seven, Xam’d: Lost Memories and Darker than BLACK, was making another original mecha series it went right to the top of my list of most anticipated anime of this fall, and so far this year’s dose of FABULOUS has not disappointed.
