Haiyore! Nyaruko-san W - Episode 3Show
At this point, I can kinda guess which scenes/images are references, even if I don't even know what they explicitly refer to.
Kinda disappointed that I initially missed the Death Note one as it turns out that was the only one that I actually knew.

You know, at this point in time I can honestly prove that everyone on this show is hard gay for Yui, especially during this episode.

Kakumeiki Valvrave ep. 4Show
The ARUS representative turns out to be no different from any other sleazy politician, planning to take the Valvrave and Haruto, as well as abandoning the colony's civilians. L-Elf forces Haruto to make a deal with him, saying there's no other choice.

But Shoko manages to throw a wrench in L-Elf's, ARUS' and Dorssia's machinations by declaring their home colony independent from both ARUS and Dorssia. Well, what do you know...Shoko is the daughter of JIOR's president! It helps to have the Valvrave as leverage to keep the two superpowers at bay.
Ginga Kikoutai Majestic Prince ep. 5Show
Randy Maxwell (Team Doberman's leader) acts as a big brother mentor to Izuru, teaching him that a good leader always trusts the people under his command. While Randy does a good job being a mentor figure, he is not above being mischevious to his kouhai. (Impromptu AV viewing, anyone? XD) And the Rabbits find out that Team Doberman is not so different from them--they bicker at times, but they're still a team.

Our heroes' training is put to the test when they are ordered to infiltrate and destroy a "lightly-defended" Wulgaru base. And by "lightly defended", it actually means heavily defended. Team Doberman draws away the base defenders while the Rabbits infiltrate and plant a bomb to destroy the base. After previous defeats, it's a relief to see the Rabbits score a victory.
To Aru Kagaku no Railgun S ep. 4Show
Mikoto finally comes face to face with one of her clones...though there seems to be a bit of mood whiplash in the next episode preview once they meet.
Hentai Ouji to Warawanai Neko ep. 4Show
For a second there, I got Touka vibes from Tsukushi. But it turns out Tsukushi does care for her little sis Tsukiko. (Maybe a little too much...) After challenging Tsukushi to a showdown, Youto wishes to the Stony Cat that he won't run away (and has his underwear taken in the process). Unfortunately, he also declares that he loves Tsukiko as a little sister...

But Tsukiko decides to give her expressions (contained in the meat bun offering) to her older sister instead of taking it back for herself. Tsukiko also seems irritated with Youto treating her like a little sister, and so she acts coldly to Youto for the rest of the summer. (It doesn't help that Youto's home suddenly disappears.)
Haiyore! Nyaruko-san W ep. 5Show
Kana Asumi (as Nyaruko) and Norio Wakamoto (as a talking vacuum cleaner) engaging in ham-to-ham combat right off the bat?! ("Joker! Cyclone!") :lol:

And we're also introduced to Cuuko's cousin Cuune, who is ree-hee-heeally lesbian for Cuuko and wants to take her home. Since Cuuko can't say she loves Nyaruko (especially with Nyarlathotepians and Cthughans being sworn enemies), she then declares that she loves Mahiro.

Corruption/SAN status: -13 "Stained by Nyaruko's touch"
"Rip and Tear. Rip and tear until it's done."

Crime Edge Ep. 6Show
The slavery whip has someone behind - one we know a while ago.
Neither Kiri nor Iwai can say that right.
RDG Ep. 6Show
The school itself is an arena, where Mayura is the challenger side. And she's trying to get Izumiko to help.
Given that rival has more human-sized minions...

Even in the seemingly most serious of situations, there ends up being some well-placed comedy too.
Another really amusing episode. (:

As much of an idiot as Kazuya is, I can understand why he'd believe what those three random girls were saying about him and Haruka.
Inevitable drama incoming...

Ginga Kikoutai Majestic Prince ep. 6Show
After the successful mission in the previous episode, the Rabbits/Fail Five are given an advanced graduation from the military academy and will be joining the GDF. Our young heroes bid farewell to school life.

Meanwhile, at the Wulgaru mothership...it turns out that the the alien invaders are human in appearance. What hidden motive drives them toward Earth?
Kakumeiki Valvrave ep. 5Show
Being a newly formed independent nation composed mostly of teenagers seems to be all fun and games...until Module 77's environmental systems fail. It's up to Yusuke the otaku and Raizo the delinquent to solve the problem...by pushing a big, red button deep within the bowels of the module. (Wait, what? o.o)

Later, the students make and upload a viral video that is meant as a "We are okay!" message for occupied JIOR. It also gets views in ARUS and is even watched by L-Elf's former comrades. Meanwhile, Takumi--one of two visible adults left in Module 77 and a science teacher--wants to know more about the Valvrave. But the big reveal is that there are more Valvrave units hidden within Module 77 (and hints that the Valvraves may be some kind of ancient technology).

It was funny seeing Valvrave's feminine AI(?) reacting to Haruto and Saki kissing, though. (Jealousy?)
Anyway, my younger bro had these impressions of this season's mecha anime so far:

- Majestic Prince: Supposed to be comedic, but lately has started to grow a little more serious.
- Valvrave: Supposed to be more serious, but recently has been heading into narm/narm charm. (EDIT: Actually, after seeing the newest episode, it's definitely in campy, "so bad it's good" territory.)
- Gargantia: Allegedly "kill 'em all", but it seems lighthearted...for now. (To be fair, Gurobutcher's only involved with episode 1...but who knows, right?)
"Rip and Tear. Rip and tear until it's done."
