Well, yes, her intent was entirely non-innocent, but her delivery was almost perfect. :)

Minami and Ryo are Asami's great-great-grandchildren. Here's a handy guide to the entire Sato dynasty to date.

In fairness, it mostly has been. Just... not always. :)

Anthy would, in fact, have reached over and turned the video feed on, so as to cause precisely the event Corwin warned her about.

Heh, sort of. Lt. Zhi has a bit less of that Sam-the-Eagle "indignant disapproval" thing going on compared to Zargh. He doesn't have much of a sense of humor himself, but he doesn't necessarily resent it in other people. He's annoyed at Yumi in that scene because she laughed at him, whereas Zargh gets annoyed when people laugh at anything. :)

Yeah, Anthy's not surprised that Utena saw what she was getting at; just that she was apparently expecting it already.

Heh, yeah, and Azana doesn't actually mind the cold - she's a firebender, she can always warm up. Xiang Wan, on the other hand, is from Gaoling, Toph Beifong's old hometown. It's near the equator and rarely even gets cool weather, let alone cold.

Kind of, but not on a commercial scale. And they're fishing for fish, not crab, so the equipment is all different. So not really. :)

Luckily, they're smart enough to stay out of the nets themselves. Sorting your catch would be a real hassle if there was an ottershark or two in there.

I'm not sure about that. The one ice dodging scene that's presented in canon does feature some bending stunts, but IIRC, they only happen after the person proctoring the test has already declared that they've done enough and can knock off for the day, so they wouldn't have affected the scores, as it were.

That's the face Corwin has when he's actually lost in Cleveland, as opposed to Lost In Cleveland. :)
