Pilot was good. Real good illustration style an animation was crisp an clean. World build was pretty fast but not to simple. Tho this seems familiar with some other student mech shows it has its own flavor at least. Who knew Martians were A-holes?
I felt the same as you. Good solid pilot.
Kinda ballsy how they killed off a main character in the first episode, but considering how the space-nobles were talking I saw it coming a mile away.
"Wow hey you know what would be great? If the Princess died on Earth and I could use her death to finally invade the Earth! Not that I've secretly sent some men down ahead of time to make sure that happens or anything...just thinking out loud."
Gundam Seed and Gargantia? "Oh you're on the fence about this whole Mars vs. Earth thing? BAM cute girl dead, do you care now? Of course you do! Keep watching to find out what happens next."
Thanks.. And of course civilians suffer thanks to the screw ups and decisions of people in power. Iduno, it seems pretty cookie cutter so far. I slightly high hopes for this since it's from Gen Urobochi (Psycho-Pass, Madoka), but I'm starting to think his only good story was Psycho-Pass, but even with Psycho-Pass near the end, like with Madoka, it's like he was feeling himself too hard with the story, going on long pseudo-philosophic rants.
@Supreme Marvel: Till ya see episode 2 don't read the spoiler bit here.
@AURON570: To be fair civilians always suffer when because of poor thinking from people in power tho. Positions of power does not make one wise, honest or smart. But so far the earth side really is not at fault. An the "Martians" gained a huge amount of power an a royal attitude to to match it seems.
An Psycho-Pass is my favorite of his works. There is a similar spark here about power like from Psycho-Pass. Power all in one place is not a good thing. Or at least thats what it apeers to me at 1st glance. Also Gen Urobochi is credited as creator of this but not as a writer or that their are other writers even.
If can give it 2 more episodes to try an win ya over. The 2nd episode I thought was pretty solid.
Episode 5 was pretty good.
@takashichea: Eh think its more A-hole-ism than any thing else. Note how different some of the racial backgrounds are of the knights. Also its nice to see something royal in anime not be slanted as good a good thing. As a general thing royal = noble more often than not.
I forgot Saturdays are Aldnoah.Zero, One Piece, Irregular Magic, and SAO II days. I usually watch at night after all that work.
On the royal A-hole-ism, you got Earthlings vs Martians. That's the racism I was referring. Maybe, planetism (if there's a word).
