Buddy Complex Episode 2: Fun times in the future

[HorribleSubs] Buddy Complex - 02 [720p].mkv_snapshot_10.02_[2014.01.15_06.31.17]

Oh hey, Sunrise decided to actually have a reason for Aoba to know how to pilot a mecha this time. Usually, the main character just gets in and suddenly knows how to pilot at a decent level, but this time, Aoba had to share knowledge with Dio to figure it out. Anyway, Aoba’s first moments in the future are pretty standard. He has the initial disorientation as well as suspicion from the people around him. I also found it funny that Aoba interpreted Hina’s “Dio is waiting for you” as “Dio actually knows who you are and will be happy to see you” as opposed to “you will have a strong relationship with Dio when you reach the future” like I did.

It looks like things are getting worse for Aoba. Next week, he’ll meet the Hina from this timeline, who presumably will have no memory of Aoba (probably because she hasn’t met him yet). This will cause even more tension with the people who saved Aoba as he has already told them her name and that she sent him to them. So far, everything is staying relatively predictable. More than likely, Aoba will go into battle again and finally get Dio on his side. Or he’ll get himself thrown in the brig again…
