Episode 1

I'm impressed by the world fiction so far for the series and technology.

Sogo is a character that I find somewhat difficult to adapt with. He is energetic but also seems somewhat childish?
And at any rate, the show sets up a decent amount of potential imo with this first episode in particular that ending. I also wonder what the true purpose of the crystals are...

Also, I predict romance to develop soon.

I'm already rooting for Kaon. She doesn't get mad at (or beat up) Sogo. So far, I like the series. It has potential.

ep 1

this feels like something bones would've made (mech setup, mysterious girl, sci-fi setting, military group somehow involved, there is always some kind of flying/floating device lol)

asterisk war ain't got shit on this show, this seems like the better of the two just based on the first episode (the animation just seems better as well)

got high hopes for it so far

also kaon better be main romance girl rather than crystal girl

Well, for starters, the title reminds me of a certain novel by Niven & Pournelle. But is this a mecha series, or is the mecha stuff just trivial details? I have no real interest in mecha stuff, unless it's something unique (Gurren was unique by invoking ludicrous mode every-single-episode). Well, it was an interesting start, but one does not simply hoverboard into Mordor,

Episode 1

Came in expecting nothing and found something quite interesting. I'm not entirely sure what genre this'll fall under but it has a mix of mecha and sci fi/fantasy. One thing though, I hope Kaon stays best girl since she seems cool and I'm not a fan of "guy falls in love at first sight with the mysterious small girl with white/silver/blueish hair for no logical reason" trend that's been going on lately.







This series is amazing so far, and reminds me of the Mega Man Legends video game series if it were turned into anime.


(Now available on PS3, Vita, and PSP for $10. Which is a STEAL compared to the cost of physical copies).


And I agree with everyone else: Kanon is a great female MC that anime really doesn't seem to produce too many of. She's got a spirit and daring equal to that of Songo, and plenty of common sense. Songo also doesn't appear to be a bitchboy himself, so I hope he doesn't get forced into the "lackluster MC falls for Mysterious Girl because she offers him adventure."

Like bitchboy, you don't already get adventure with Kanon? How did you end up meeting the new loli except by having a rather darling escapade with her?

Episode 1: The Boy And The Vast Land

Pretty interesting so far. While this episode didn't really reveal much, the scenery and the whole setting looks beautiful. Hoping they will touch up on that soon.

The mecha designs are unique especially the main one that kind of looks like a Mirelurk from Fallout. The animation is pretty nice and also the character designs as well.

Sogo seems like a cool MC and I'm rooting for his relationship with Kaon. I don't think he will fall in love with that loli but it would rather be more of a brother sister type of relationship...hopefully.

Anyways looking forward to the next one.

Pretty good first episode. Liked the sense of adventure going on, and the lovely visuals at times. Mecha is fine with me.

Echoing others' comments about hoping Kaon to be the love interest, as she's pretty cool, but childhood friends don't have good track records...

This episode was over in a blink of an eye for me - hope it keeps up.

the animation is so good and crisp, and quite colorful, and character designs are pretty cool too.

This girl has terrifying upper leg strength to hold on like that.

I assume they managed to survive the fall into the pit because she landed on her feet and caught him.

Hmm.. Not sure what to make of it. I mean i like it but.... Visually it looks interesting, nice design. Character wise the mc and such seem interesting enough.

Though does seem like this Kaon girl gets the short end of the stick as MC wonder boy falls for gem girl.

Will see where this goes i suppose.

From what I had read I didn't expect it to involve mecha. Kind of wished they had skipped the OP like other animes for the first episode to give a bigger impact.

It was pretty entertaining for still not knowing too much of the general plot. I'm assuming Sogo's mother was researching whatever the crystal girl is? That and his mother is probably dead due to said research? The delivery made it sound that way at least.

Can't wait for more!

I really like this. It's different enough that it stands from the Moe herd this season and still be easy enough of a story to fallow

A visual treat! I love the animation and character designs. Very vibrant and lively. As of now I'm interested enough to keep up weekly. Got a bit of a Gurren Lagann, Eureka Seven vibe. Still puzzled as to how they survived that fall though... Without scratches, no less!

Good first eps to set up the char and the plot. and mecha too. Giving me a escaflone or last exile kind of vibe.

Going to keep watching for now.

Gotta admit went into this with low expectations and came out with Eureka Seven feels (which is a very good thing since I love ES), then 'good' mecha makes me think of Beast 9's "Beast" unites. Really hope Sogo doesn't follow the usual "new girl = romantic interest" and instead sees the new girl as a little sister (she looked kinda young). Also loving Kaon's speech on arranged marriages and that she's taking an active role in getting away/rejecting it as an outdated concept that doesn't care about the feelings of the people pulled into it. And props to the studio for not doing the 'girl emerges from x-thing naked' cliche, instead having her actually clothed.

Definitely will be keeping up with this series and hoping it continues pulling me.

Eureka Seven but with a second love interest? I wonder where this is heading.

Of course they survived a 500+ ft fall into a deep dark pit without any scratches. Plot armor is strong with this one.

Anime logic 101:


Any magical crystal will act as a gravity defying device whenever character wielding it is falling from the heavens.

I was actually kinda thinking/hoping that it would end up like a father/daughter relationship between Sogo and pseudo-Isla, with Kaon taking on a mother role. That was kinda the vibe I got immediately after Sogo caught the little girl in his arms. I too am rooting for Kaon, which is surprising considering I'm a loli fan and I LOVED Isla in Plastic Memories. But Kaon has a sexy design that is that unique blend of tomboyish and girly at the same time, and those legs, hips, and waist don't hurt her score either For how often MC's in anime are kinda dependent whiny teens nowadays, I think it'd be refreshing to see two older teen MCs that have a steady, exclusive relationship where they're a surrogate mother-father couple to the little girl who is new to the world. From the ED, it looks like this girl will act like a real little girl and not magically be super mature, so it may be able to work. I hope I end up right on this one thing

I'm guessing that there's some like, air cushion seating or something on those boards, seeing as how it looks like the MC always has that wallsit-like position when riding it. That couldn't naturally be comfortable, and since it's a hoverboard, my bet is on an "invisible chair" that is basically suspending the characters in that squatting position. It'll be interesting to see if they answer that though.
