    Great Hook! A must watch!
    If you are into any kind of sci-fi (even if you are not), this show is a must watch. The character designs and story are top notch. The premise had my brother, a friend, and myself hooked within the first half of the episode and was doubly reinforced in the second half.

    The first episode touches on a number of points ranging from self-preservation to self-sacrifice and I really enjoyed how they ...

    Well, this was really unexpected!
    After watching a few of the other newly 'released' animes on here...I've been sorely disappointed by most of them. They failed to catch my attention or stand out in anyway. This anime? Good lord! It's THE best First Quarter anime of 2013 to be released so far as it stands above the other April releases (As of the date this was originally posted) by a tremendous amount.

    It's beautifully ...

    This could be something special
    I don't normally watch much mecha anime but this first episode was incredible. Interesting, coherent plot (so far)... solid voice acting and script... and the animation is GORGEOUS. Bring on episode two!

    Amazing First Episode
    This truely has the making of the best new anime of the season! The plot seems simple, but still bold in ways other mech animes failed to do so. Even people who don't like mech animes could still watch this anime.

    Amazing. As simple as that
    Been Looking forward to this and a few others. From the looks of it, it already seems like an epic series. Interesting storyline, great art work, all aspects of a good anime are here. But of course with an epic series comes the unbearable anticipation

  • Expected standard mecha, got something original
    This surprised me! Started off as standard mecha series but quickly turned everything on it's head with an original setting and for me, original story. The characters could have used more fleshing out but all in all they pulled me in to the story and it's beautifully drawn to boot.

    Very pleasantly surprised, a recommended watch!

  • Excellent series with some thought provoking themes
    Amazing pacing, intriguing backstory which was explained adequately eventually (but could still be expanded upon for future seasons), clear and thought provoking themes, likable characters, and very well written scores. Not the same as Fate/Zero or the likes, but definitely a higher-up in the extremely solid series club.

    Recommended. tin-can/10.

  • Great original story
    Excellent show. The story line is actually original, and I never could tell what was going to happen next. I really enjoyed this series, and highly recommend it to anyone who is a fan of the sci fi steampunk type animes. I was very disappointed when I realized I reached the end of the series.

  • A superb anime, with great action, beautiful characters and a thoughtful theme!
    The very first episode takes you quickly into the main subjects, which is the conflict between humans and aliens, whose identity you will discover later. The main character, Ledo, is cold but he grows from a soldier to a well liked boy with emotions. The key to his change is Amy, a very beautiful girl, who charms you in every episode.

    Ledo's partner and backup is the fantastic Chamber, an A.I. ...

  • Brilliant & Beautiful
    A beautifully animated, brilliant, true science-fiction story about what it means to be human - both for the individual and the species.

    The animation is achingly beautiful, yet never over powers the story. And that's the same with the characters. They are normal people who find themselves in an extraordinary situation.
