|Not the best, but highly rememorable|
At first, I though this would be some Evangelion clone; the simularities are there (angels are the main vilains, ten years after disaster strikes the world, the only thing that can save humanity is a special robot, mysterious head honcho). There are also lots of differences though, and it doesn't copy as much as RahXephon did. This show may be known for the orgasming combining sequences, but this is because when the planes merge, the pilots are merging too (the creator stated that this is because usually only the mechas converge and then the pilots not piloting the main mecha become spectators who occasionally fire a cannon. That is a good idea to put forth, but the constant orgasming is kind of unsubtle. I might have liked the mecha design more if it wasn't for the ugly CGI which made them (I get that 3D is cheaper than 2D, though). The music is great (percifically the first opening theme). A lot of love and passion was put into this series (as said in the DVD extras), which I find highly respectable.
