  • Probably one of the best anime series in 2013
    Thirteen episodes of really good personal devlopment of the main protagonist. This show starts off on a bang and then slows down and then picks right back up where it was.

    The story is great, probably one of the best twists I have seen in an Anime. Literally is one of the best twists since Full Metal Alchemist Brotherhood, but not quites as big since it is only a 13 episode series.

  • An excellent anime to watch while you're waiting for your favorite anime's next release.
    The cover art first had me thinking it was going to be some ONE PIECE type of anime with a mech running around, though, this was very much to my surprise a well written story. Without ruining any of the story giving away too much about it. I will say the main character reminds me of the movie [Soldier] with Kurt Russell. A soldier who basically knows only the life of a soldier & the mission ...

  • Sad it ended with 13 episodes. I want more!
    I wish it was more then just then just 13 episodes. They could of gone into more depth, but even for scratching the surface it was AMAZING. I loved the language barrier, love the characters. There was a little lollygagging around the early middle, but it was a great watch.

  • Surprise! This isn't a Mecha anime...
    Despite the prominent mecha on the title art, you can't really call this a mecha anime; the role of the robots is minimal at best. The Mecha's AI, on the other hand, is a major player, and is well used as a narrative device to explain the more subtle details of the world. The characters are realistic and develop in ways that make sense. Romance is lacking; much is hinted at a future between the ...

  • A cute action anime!
    Action. Check.
    A non-annoying, strong, likeable male protagonist who develops character. Check.
    Fantasy/Sci-fi. Check.
    A cute, independent, non-annoying female protagonist. Check.
    Good story. Check.
    Romance. Check. (At least I think it was romance...or a really, really, really strong friendship)

    The only thing I didn't like was the fanservice. Though it was mild.

  • Top Notch, Every Episode!!!
    Each episode left me satisfied and progressed into good character development and the series overall raised current (or future) questions for mankind to ponder upon. The music, scenery/drawing style were pleasing and ironically calming. I usually had a good feeling (or filled with great emotion) when I finished watching. It was beautifully done and, to me, well written. It becomes much more ...

  • A big pile of Sci-Fi/Mecha character driven awsome
    Mecha anime is not usually my cup of tea, however much fun it is watching big robots smash oversized swords on each others heads, it can get a bit repetitive. This anime is a lot more than that. Beautifully animated this new world is brought to life both the scenes in space and earth look gobsmacking, the idea of living on a flooded earth on boats is quite original i think, never encountered this ...

  • WaterWorld meets Giant Robot
    I have to say I was pleasantly surprised by this series. The characters are decently varied and the designs and artwork very impressive. Even the CG meshed pretty well into the general picture (I really don't like CG animation). The story...well, it was short and to the point. Almost too much so. I really think this deserved more than 13 episodes to flesh out more of how the Earth had changed ...

    This anime is short, sweet, and a great insight into humanity.
    I would definitely recommend this to anyone willing to break into anime. In the span of only 13 episodes, a great story of belonging unfolds in an extraordinarily beautiful environment. 5/5, would definitely watch again.
