First thing I thought of when I saw the pic was Eureka 7.

Episode 1

Ah, KOTOKO, how I so love her music. Anyway, this show looks like a generic mecha show, but even so it definitely is not short on style with the use of CG for the mechas. The first half was rather meh, but once Jamie was introduced, my interest level spiked. Tokimune went from being just another soldier with a hero's mentality to one who could change the tide of this war thanks to Argevollen.

This thing was hilarious. When that giant robot pulled out a knife LOL. Also, "Oh wait, you are a pilot right? Have this OP robot, free of charge."

I like the Colonel though. Reminds me of Roy Mustang. He has conflict between ideals and harsh reality. He disobeyed direct orders saving the lives of many, but he will catch hell soon from superiors. Don't worry, the MC will save him with his new kickass robot.

Not a bad first episode. So far looks a bit on the generic side, and the first half had some slightly tame action i suppose. Though was nice to see something that resembled a combined arms effort :p

second half things got a bit more direct.

Mech design looks interesting.

We'll see where this goes though.

Ep 1

Generic as fuck set up. Like it is every other mech anime that has that one special mech that the pilot just happens to get.
Waiting for the part where the special mech is not so special anymore and they have to fight against other specialized mechs and then Argevollen gets an upgrade and it flies and shit lol.

Animation is kind of bad. Watch the characters when they are running or walking. Their legs are just flapping over the ground like they're not making contact with the earth.

Otherwise, I do think this anime has potential depending on where they go. Could this group and that one colonel guy use this mech to defend their country and overthrow the current ruling party?

Ouch~

Eh, I'm not sure how I feel about this. Action seems moderate while the music is above average. The MC annoys me a bit though and the dialogues feels cheesy.

As for the mecha designs, they look alright. I'm expecting a lot of story to be unraveled in the next few episodes. Imo, this first episode felt a bit fast...

I cannot stop laughing at that scene though. Dude forgot he had a machine gun attached and just pulled a knife out of thin air.

Very generic so far. I find myself wondering, do these people not have any combat aircraft? A single A-10 (late 1960s/early 1970s tech) would have cleared out the problem at the gate for the defenders.

Though, I'll keep watching it for now.

I like how warfare is portrayed in this show. However the characters do not interest me that much so far.

Talk about simple generic mecha stuff. I mean, it ins't even trying to be different!

This is pretty much how I feel, though I didn't notice the leg flapping.

This could get better, but it just seems typical mecha bullshit. I love mecha shows so I'll watch it all the way through probably, but I mean the MC is just another dense justice MC. And the he gets a special mech from a special girl!

I will say there's some good VAs in this though the MC is voiced by Ohsaka, Ryota who played as Haruto (Valvrave), Murakami (Brynhildr), Mau (Devil is a Part-timer), and he's also playing as Okikura from Glasslip!

And this girl:

Is played by Oohara, Sayaka and she voiced Irisviel (Fate/Zero)
