This falls into the category of a mech anime. Those are basically mobile suits like in Gundam, just smaller.

I don't think that people hate mech anime based on the fact that mechs are in them, but more based on the space opera-ish story that goes along with them.


I don't want you to get the wrong idea. I like this show. Alongside ERASED and KONOSUBA it is one of my favorite of this season. There is Utawarerumono as well but that is a continuation from the previous season. I like it for perhaps different reasons than yourself.

After watching the first episode my immediate thought was 'this is shit'. But after three more episodes I can further confirm that this is indeed very shit and entertaining shit none the less.

The animation and sound effects are good. The music track perfectly fits the style of show, with a brisk thoughtless energy. The plot is completely ridiculous and the characters exercise a restrained absurdity. But they do it all with a strait ernest tone that makes it brilliant comedy. It works very well.

What fallows next is a run through of the first three episodes and spoilers.

Episode 5

Straight flush~

Eh, this episode felt unusually weird. I mean, it's another case but deals with gambling and taking risks. Madoka-chan is no pushover though especially as a pro. Yeah, this was definitely a weird episode.

An intersting eps. Now sure what version of poker they were playing thought..

The tension was there and we learned a bit more about Madoka.

Episode 5: Poker Face of Erasure

I actually quite enjoyed this episode. Madoka is pretty cute and she has a very seductive voice when she enters her gambling mode. She needs more screen time.

Look at all those combinations. And no one won with an Ace high? Impossible. But they went with the flow. I enjoyed the poker game though. Poker face can either make or break you.

I like how Asami takes her job too seriously. It's a great contrast with the odd group. Lol she actually tailed her. But she makes the interactions all the more enjoyable.

Looking forward to the next one.

A lot of Gundam vibes with this one.

Why do I suddenly feel a little older? I'm in my low 20s!!

Nice episode with giant robots. I liked when Doctor who was becoming senile was being asked for help and the words kept echoing was nice scene very emotional how he changed into being useful for couple of hours and truly died with a smile

who likes gaint robots? We do!

a Fun eps. nice to see some giant robot action. We don't see that sort of show much anymore. Nice of them to use traditional animation to do it too. I wonder who did it..

A very bittersweet ending.

Episode 6: Dreams Beyond The Twilight

This was a nice episode. It highlighted the difference between old and new technology and why older technology gets overshadowed i.e the Willwears vs. the Giant Robots.

Yup no CG on the giant robots surprisingly since the Willwears are usually done in CG. But they went with the traditional 2D. CG is still trying to make a break through and is still improving.

Ready for the next one.

It was CG till they started fighting. The difference was actually kind of jarring. For a moment I thought we were seeing what the two of them were *imagining* the fight was like and it was going to switch back to the both of them in CG just awkwardly prodding each other. >.>

Episode 7

This show definitely has some weird laws flying around.

Political affairs aside, I think action was actually kinda neat. The operation got complicated as well with Haruka getting involved. She definitely took the responsibility but I think she also realized the consequences.



I think the episode also goes to show that not every case has a happy ending. In this case, Kobari didn't end well.

Not all things have a happy ending; pretty much this episode in general.
