"I rated the first volume of this series a "5." This volume is not quite as good as the first, but there is still a certain magic permeating the episodes. If what I have seen in these first two volumes is any indication, I think that the entire series will earn a collective five stars. I encourage you to watch this series. It is . . . well, "charming" comes to mind."
The character development continues

"In these two episodes, another character is introduced, another alien who has come to give assistance to DD in destryoing the rest of the Maguar. She's somewhat brash, a bit arrogant, sure of herself, seems to have a somewhat love-hate relationship with DD and doesn't seem to care to like Figures much at all. In fact, she wants to finish off the Maguar on her own without having to resort to becoming a Figure or having Figure 17 help in the fight.
Tsubasa and Hikaru are involved in a few minor battles in these two episodes, but the majority of the time is devoted to further character development. We spend a lot of time with the two girls and their friends as they have a camp out at the school, where they cook curry and investigate the school in the dark. The second episode is mostly about life on the farm as the two girls help out with chores when the farm owners wife gets sick.
These episdoes are slow paced and might not appeal to someone who only likes action, but I found them a nice change of pace from some of the more frenetic shows out there. It's nice to be able to sit back and watch the characters grow and blossom as Tsubasa is drawn more out of her shell by the more outgoing Hikaru.
Also, we're introduced to a reporter in these episodes who seems to notice that there are unusual things going on in the vicinity, what with all the battles that have been going on with the Maguar. I'm anxious to see what further developments will come up in further volumes. Check them out, they are definitely worth your time."
