I can't think of a specific question but I want to hear/see you talk about GiroNatsu :3
Oh lord, where do I start with these two?
GiroNatsu was my first ship when I started watching/reading KG, and to this day, they are still my top ship.
What I like most about them is that, unlike a lot of the other human/Keronian pairs in KG, Giroro and Natsumi are truly partners. They have each other’s backs and can fight side by side with no trouble.
They genuinely care for each other, though Natsumi is oblivious to Giroro’s true feelings. She’s tended to his wounds after he was badly injured. He planted an entire field of sweet potatoes for her. And then they worked together to harvest the potatoes. IT WAS TOO CUTE FOR WORDS.
And lord help you if you put on of them in danger. Natsumi rode through a desert planet and did battle with an alien by herself to save Giroro’s life. Giroro broke out of his holding cell to take on his platoon mates after they assaulted Natsumi with soy beans.
And of course, I don’t think I need to remind you about Giroro defeating a Space Cerberus for its liver when Natsumi fell fatally ill.
Or when Natsumi was brainwashed by the robot suit and Giroro had to tell her loved her to get her out of it.
Or when Natsumi ran to the train station because she hadn’t gotten to say good-bye to Giroro.
Or when Natsumi struggled not to cry when Giroro disappeared from her yard.
THESE TWO GIVE ME A LOT OF FEELS AND DAMMIT WHY CAN’T THEY BE CANON
new experimental drive core from Jett Stellar Drives has wrecked their
test ship on its first unsimulated test run. The star drive manufacturer
has released only sparse details of their new product to the public,
but the company claims that it will revolutionize space travel once it
reaches technological maturity. Rumoured to be derived from salvaged
Reaper technology, the new drive allegedly does not suffer from the
electric charge build-up that necessitates contemporary starships to
discharge regularly at stellar bodies to avoid systems and crew loss.
shot from a distance shows that the test ship attempted to power up and
accelerate to super-luminal velocity, but a visible arc of static
discharge aft of the ship signaled drive failure and the end of the
test. A stream of excited element zero could be seen trailing behind the
ship, emanating from cracks in the hull.
Jett Stellar Drives’ CEO addressed the shot footage, which did not originate from the company’s own media corps:
is a natural part of the development cycle for new concepts. We
witnessed one just now. Fortunately this was only a drone ship, so the
damages are merely material. According to our simulations this should
not have happened, but we haven’t yet determined whether it was due to a
failure in construction or a failure in theory. The latter option is
much more exciting, as it would indicate new mechanics unknown to our
current understanding of physics.”
Market response to the test
has remained mild so far, with a 1% decline to Jett Stellar Drives’
value. No competitor saw their share prices rise in response.
