Synopsis


In the latter half of 21st century, humans leave the Earth and begin to live in space. In order to adapt to the environment in space and deal with the hostile aliens in Jupiter, genetically engineered children called "Princes" are artificially raised and trained to be pilots of armed robots "AHSMB (Advanced High Standard Multipurpose Battle Device). This is a story about one of the teenage "Princes", Hitachi O Izuru, who studies in an academic city Grandzehle.


First Impressions

It was an okay first episode I guess, wasn't earth shattering or anything. The mood seems to balance between lighthearted and serious later on with the characters. The mechas' designs are kinda nice and seems like


I'm not 100% sure on who they are fighting against in space but the music in the background is nice. It was an alright episode imo.

Episode 1

Power Rangers color coordination!! Go!!
...sorry I had to get that out of the way

Anyway, first episode was ok, a few funny moments (that lollipop yo) and the action scenes were good.
I'll keep watching to see where this goes...

Wait a minute, Miyuki Sawashiro voices the instructor...show redeemed

I thought it was average at best. I just couldn't get through the episode because the cutesy factor was just too cloying. I'll pass on this show.

It was okay, I suppose. First ep could have been better, but I laughed at the lollipop thing.

The fighting scenes were good and looked pretty amazing.

The thing that annoys me though is the story. They're called the worst team of all the teams who do what they do, and are suddenly given amazing robots to do a super hard task and succeed easily.

If they don't give a reason and just presume I should just accept this I don't think I can watch it anymore.

I'm willing to withold my judgement on the difference from their ability to fight in practice versus the real thing. The "Geordi La Forge" guy said piloting them would be easier than the practice ones plus when your using paint ammo in practice versus live ammunition in live battle more often than not people will hesitate and not try to charge out of formation
Lots of action in this and looks good for a preliminary episode. Cannot expect to be satisified with every little detail after just the opening IMO.

well, technically I understand why they threw their worst at them in the best machines possible..militarily at least. You do have to consider that the origional plan was for the 5 to hold the line for a retreat for 30 minutes while the rest of the ships and personell were evacuated.
The machines themselves are pretty powerfull, the personell expendable. Holding the line in battle for 30 minutes would be insanely hard, but by using the not best and brightest they can then field a reserve team for any other follow up missions or better qualified personel.

Admittedly that is a kinda dick thing to do considering that your sacrifcing 5 lives knowing that they most likely will be killed, the fact that they were able to pull it off actually says that they were underpreforming..or that personality clashes in training were holding them back, especially on Mr I'm going to charge ahead doof in the blue mech.

Looks interesting so far. They really started the action off in high gear. If thats how combat is in the first episode I'm wondering how much crazier it can get.

Mech designs were awesome, not sure how I missed this anime in the spring lineup. Characters are a bit plain, but It doesn't bother me too much.

I wouldn't be surprised if we find out that as individuals those pilots have very high aptitude but they're all troublemakers/have issues and don't work well as a group which was hinted at.

the character design is a little off-putting at first, but so far, this anime looks to be everything I'd hoped it would be. I'm very much looking forward to more episodes.

Mildly interesting. Mecha designs were decent and I kind of like the goofy cast. I'll give the next two episodes a spin.

This one did not really impress me. Although the battle scenes were spectacular, I found most of the main characters to be pretty annoying.
I also didn't like that the main character committed his entire team to what appeared to be an impossible situation without even getting their consent, that seems like bad leadership to me.
I'm willing to wait and see if this improves, but so far it doesn't seem like something I will enjoy.
