    There Should be Onomatopoeia for an Indifferent Shrug
    Captain Earth torments me like nothing I can adequately compare to.

    To start off, it's by Bones and it shows. The animation and designs are, as usual for the studio, top shelf. It's got neat looking mechs and lots of color and action. The show looks pretty and knows it.

    I'm Sort of Torn About Captain Earth
    I really don't know if this show is good or not. Character motivation seems lazy often attributing character actions by some sort of celestial force. The protagonist's knowledge or complete lack thereof of his situation confuses me about why he's doing what he's doing. He knows he must protect the planet. He knows how to pilot a huge mech he's never touched before. But in subsequent scenes he has ...

    Certainly surprising
    This is written before the end of the anime, so take it with a grain of salt.

    This anime started off as something which I wasn't completely sure about, but I went with it, not having anything better to do. I thought it was a childish anime, kind of like Power Rangers, with mecha.
    However, the childish elements of this anime is only a facade. It's fairly mature, with interesting twists ...

    A Beautifully Animated Kids' Cartoon
    Overall, it's hard to characterize Captain Earth as a "bad" anime, but I don't think it's what most of us here on Crunchyroll are looking for. Let me explain:

    First, the good part. The animation is quality. If you can get by based on that and that alone, you will definitely enjoy Captain Earth.

    Now, the not-so-good part: even by typical licensed anime standards, Captain Earth feels like it ...

    Strength Comes From Our Feelings
    The very beginning throws you into a story that which you have no idea what the hell is going on. However, the main character is right there with you on that. This anime never explains a lot of why things happened or where the enemies truly came from, however, I think that is part of the greatness of this anime.

    Story 7/10:
    Many people will agree on this (under the assumption they watched to ...

    Amazing Mecha Anime!
    Captain Earth is an amazing anime. I've really been enjoying this show in my opinion it was one the of the anime of the spring season along with The Irregular at Magic School high. I really like the characters and the story, the animation is really good and the ost is great.

    Are you the Captain?
    "When I opened the door called Truth, my childhood ended, it was a summer I could never forget." This quote alone completely describes how Captain Earth will impact mech anime lovers for this spring/summer of 2014 and for the future, by doing exactly as this quote states, making it a summer "I could never forget." Captain Earth's poster and thumbnail alone is what drove me to watch this anime for ...

    Surprisingly enjoyable
    So far this anime ticks all the boxes for me.
    -Good animation.
    -Complex plot with multiple forces at play.
    -Likeable MC.
    -Likable and amusing supporting cast.
    -Villains that you love to hate.
    -Minor villains that you want to shoot out of a cannon but get what they deserve in the end.
    -The main villains have a definite goal and their reasons for wanting it are made clear early on.
    -Not ...

    Amazing animation; poor writing.
    Some of the best animation I've seen in any anime by far. Mechs are beautiful and move very fluidly. However, every time the Earth Engine goes through the expand sequence, the animators have decided to use the same minute-long transformation sequence. It was pretty cool at first, but it got boring the second time I saw it.

    I'm about 7 episodes in, and there is not a whole lot I understand about ...
