  • Sousuke attempts to rescue Kaname, but can this series pull out of mediocrity and cliched mecha plots?

    7.5
    I started watching this series with this episode. You have the hero guy Sousuke Sagara working for the military and revealing his skills in rescuing the blue-haired girl, Kaname Chidori, who’s a somewhat sharp wit, despite being relegated to an anime babe wearing just a super short nightgown in this episode. It’s cool to see that her role will be important in the series, but somehow that reminds me of Lynn Minmei from Robotech, especially when she gets on board the mecha’s hand.



    Vic Mignogna (Edward Elric from the other full metal series), lends in his charm as the military buddy Kurz Weber, who also happens to be a blond with hair in his face. Good to hear his voice! Outside of Kurz and Melissa, the other side characters get very little development, but the bad guy Gauron seems a worthy adversary at least for the short term as he gives Kurz and Sousuke some trouble.



    Graphics and music are decent too. Not much anime mannerisms like anger marks and teardrops. It also had one nice quote which defines Sousuke's character for the series.



    Guess I'll tune in for more. :)moreless
