In the second episode of Kirameki Project, there comes a point where Kana orders Junerin to really fight Big Mighty. It requires Kana to get steamed, so she screams out the order -- which makes it a bit hard to understand.
The subtitle translates it as "That robot... take him out!" What I think she says is aitsu wa yate! But it's possible she says yata.
"aitsu" is that guy and "wa" is the topic particle. And I'm thinking that what we have here is the imperative form of yaru. Which means "to do" but also means a swarm of other things, one of which is "to kill".
I know that yatta is the simple past tense of yaru. Is yate the imperative? If not, what would the imperative of yaru be?
UPDATE: It's possible she said yatai.
UPDATE: No one? Hmmmph...

OK, here's a quickie audio/video rip of just that part. (that link should work.)
It plays fine for me using Windows Media Player and Cyberlink PowerDVD. The video is DivX and I think the audio is plain MP3.
It's 4.73 megabytes. I didn't make any serious attempt to get good compression out of it.

I dunno. That word doesn't make sense as something you'd give to an undeveloped AI as an instruction.
In the mean time, I've already found out that the imperative form of yaru is yare, so that's no help.

Aitsu o yatchae is what I hear too - and that is a contraction of yatte shimae.
The audio really helped; I missed your addition of it in the comments for a while.

So in other words, what she's saying is, "Destroy him, my robot!"
Nothing like the classics. "Stay a while. Stay....forever!"

"Aitsu" means "that guy". She's referring to Big Mighty; she isn't addressing Junerin with that.
