    Great world building entirely wasted.
    From the very first action scene, after the brief intro, I could tell the quality of this anime. Protagonists arrogantly posing in front of a hail of gunfire, without any moves to actually protect themselves, nonchalantly swatting mooks like they don't have a care in the world. And why should they? They've been equipped with titanium-reinforced plot armor! When RyuZU appears shortly thereafter, ...

    First Impressions of Clockwork Planet
    Seeing as there are no reviews as of yet, I have decided to give a brief one.

    Clockwork Planet presents it self in some typical shonen ways, and some nontypical ways. It has some elements of ecchi. The taste of action that the viewer is given in the beginning of the anime seems to be about average for a shonen, and in some ways isn't very representative of the rest of the episode which ...

    This anime is just a waste.
    It's a brilliant idea for world building and has great potential for character development, but the writing is so lazy and poor that the whole show has absolutely nothing os substance to offer. There is very vulgar fan service that does nothing to progress the story and the characters are 1 dimensional and boring. The gears and backgrounds are lovely, but the character animation is actually rather ...

    Could be great, but will have to wait and see...
    A quick overview without any actual spoilers. First, I never read the manga. I'm not a big manga fan and this review is based purely on my perspective from the anime.

    Ep 1: A bit over the top on the ecchi fan service type elements, but with just enough plot elements to make me want continue watching.

    Ep 2: Rounds out the intro and fleshes out the overall initial elements of the plot and ...

    Mediocre garbage watch if your in the business of wasting ur time
    There's an interesting world here but its overshadowed by a mountain of cliches, such as accidentally fondling boobs, accidentally pinning the girl, poor combat choreographing (just shows lines or flashes during combat sequences) Naoto and RyuZu fall in love instantly and for no real reason other than sexual attraction which makes for a very weak and boring relationship (Ryuzu loves naoto cause he ...

    I'm bored every episode.
    Once I start an anime I almost always commit to finishing it.
    I hate having to finish this Clockwork Planet. In short this anime starts off strong but gradually becomes boring with excessive action scenes and little dialogue. When there is dialogue, characters talk about the future and how the world will end if they don't do this one simple thing. AND that same conversation topic pops up ...

    Review after episode 1 and 2
    Tastes like cheddar and sour-cream potato chips. Slightly cheesy, mild, but not bad, and somewhat different while being more of the same.

    This show gets points for:
    Interesting concept, the world itself is quite cool.
    Moderately interesting characters, with skills that relate to the somewhat odd world design.

    This show loses points for:
    Crappy overused cliches that have no business being ...

  • Tricky Time Travel Anime
    This anime title hints that it is a time travel plot,
    It is a 12 episode anime.

    Clockwork Planet leaves out a bit,
    it is not meant for nonspiritual observation.

    Episode 11 shows the two prodigies sharing their skill and talent with each other.
    This is known as a logic break.

  • Fun show if you don't take it too seriously
    First of all the physics are not stellar but the show is pretty great. The hero is not your usual must be the hero type and instead can be just as much a villain. The character designs are refreshingly attractive, adorable, and vicious. With a clockwork planet as a world concept there had to be some pretty interesting reasons for why it worked like it did and the end rather tied that together if ...

  • Wasted Potential, Creepy Writing
    Again and again the show shines with potential that makes me want to watch more.

    Again and again it fails to be anything but creepy fanservice. Every interaction between the main character and his robot waifu slaves is an exercise is cringe writing. The show borders on softcore loli porn at points. By the time AnchoR was introduced as a proper character I quit the show altogether. Here's an 8 ...
