  • Differently Brilliant
    While aliens or extraterrestrials are unoriginal, the design of this anime based on the concept of aliens is original. Who would've thought that aliens could transform into giant, overpowered warships with stunning albeit strange female avatars? I sure didn't. The plot could've been extended to include even more detail, but the action was more than enough to compensate for the lack of a rich, ...

  • Superb science fiction with intriguing philosophical topics!
    I admit I haven't read the manga, but MAN was this enjoyable! Great action, great ships, distinct personalities amongst the main human AND mental model characters! Though provoking philosophical discussions about the nature of humans and their emotions, as well as the meaning of life! In a way, it's like the ultimate Japanese interpretation of many themes on Star Trek. This is a must for any ...

    How Things Should Be

These animes tend to either skip out on a lot of important plot details, cut short a few key scenes, or simply leave the ending hanging at the very end.

    To be fair, this is not entirely of the animators ...

    CGI is terrible with respect to humanoids stick to regular animation
    the CGI makes the characters appear creepy and inhuman. I get sick just trying to view this show; the CGI is an instant failure for me.

    A.B.S is one of the Best
    Man I have to say that Arpeggio of Blue Steel has got to be one of the best anime out there with my other favorites. It has a great plot, it's an original idea, lovable characters, great action, my favorite Japanese-American singer's song as an opening theme... Nothing left to say about this awesomeness. Lol XD

  • Pretty good anime!!!
    Honestly, I had my doubts when watching the first episode of the anime, but it's getting really good. The characters are amazing and so is the plot and the animation. Can't wait for the next few episodes
