Lets get one thing clear there's a need for revenge in this anime!

BTW it was brutal enough with the rights of people being trampled / a hostile takeover/ but then a brutal jailer and that scene was it necessary? You know what they say payback is a ^%&*(


I actually like the way they started Crossange. When I first saw previews, I was expecting another generic fanservice anime. Instead, I get a high society subjugating normal people because they fear them due to them being the "downfall" of their utopia, a princess who was something different from what she though she was, a rude awakening and rape and losing your mind. Its very very interesting, and sad.

Enjoyed the first episode but people shouldn't really be putting all the blame on the pervy lolicon brother. He is no different then the princess she even thought genocide on the norma should be her life goal. They are both douche bags in my book!

I do look forward to seeing how she grows as a person while she has to live with the norma that she thought were abominations.

Edit. I really hope this isn't just a 1 episode deal like kotoura-san and the rest of the series is just fanservice

And why do they try to restrain people resistant to mana with...mana?


Apparently Norma aren't just incapable of using Mana but can destroy mana which would make them a tremendous threat in a society completely dependent on Mana. So by putting a Mana barrier around them it provides incontrovertible and very visual proof they are Norma.

So far I'm liking the series and do like the fact the MC is getting her comeuppance for being such an ardent supporter of the country's Norma laws. It's a little trope but given it's so rarely used in Mecha series I can forgive it.

HOwever I'm not a fan of the "rape" scene just because that's what every series does when it wants to show a woman in dire straits. They almost never do that to a male MC.

I thought my headphones were fucked up lol good to see I wasnt the only one. xD

I was like this :3 the whole show waiting for Ange to get what's coming to her for being so "holier than thou" lol.

It seems like they are teasing a bit with the yuri, but theres a guy in there... so it will either go away, be in the background or just subtext. >_<

Am I the only one getting some Code Geass vibes from this? The art style, the setting, and the discrimination aspect of this show remind me of it... Then again, it could be that these elements are common in the Gundam series as well (or any Sunrise mecha series, for that matter). I'm not familiar with any of the Gundam series, so I wouldn't really know for sure...

This anime is so offensive on so many levels, I love it. I know Ange doesn't love it though, being broke and all.


and now, after watching the preview to the next episode, it looks like she might get raped again.

Well, it's definitely better than Mega Shark vs Mecha Shark! haha! ^_^

"Holy" Emperor Julio seems like a perfect fit for the kingdom -- a corrupt and decadent society built on fear with a corrupt and decadent Emperor who uses fear. Like... a... glove! =P The speed with which Ange went from a beloved Princess and friend to a horrid hated monster was pretty telling. And it was an interesting contrast how dirty the world was outside the kingdom (as Ange was flown to her island) compared to how clean and tidy it was inside... guess they literally dump all of their problems outside, all out of sight, out of mind. >.>

They've got a great setup for some character development with Ange -- next couple of episodes should make it clear if this is gonna be a standard "monster vs mech of the week" or something with more meat. So far, I'm liking it -- although a lot of stuff was a bit too derivative of earlier works... have to see where they're going with it more.

This is gonna be the goofy mecha show of the season.

There's a goofy mecha anime every season...

But what if it surpasses my expectations and is actually great? That's always my excuse for watching them anyway lol


That's why I always bother to watch at least one episode anyway.

I don't particularly like dragons, or mecha, or magic, or several other things evident from initial description and images--but I watched anyway.

Of this season's shows that I've watched so far, this one has the greatest chance of getting dropped, but I'm almost certain to at least watch episode 2.
