    surprisingly good anime ;) you'll be glad you stuck with it
    i thought this was going to be really cheesy
    kid stuff
    when lo' and behold
    a plot a damn good one at that (yes there are a lot of repeated scenes)
    but the whole ride kinda grabs you and doesn't let go
    the end is a bit rushed and there should've been more closure to but it does end as it supposed too
    i loved every minute of it
    Now mind you the first couple of eps you might have to ...

    Is it worth watching?
    Going into this show, I was completely blown away by first couple episodes, the characters all seemed to have their own unique personality and their own will for wanting to protect something. Now as it got further into the show new characters would arise and add something to overall plot but the show still came down to "I will fight you, I will get hit acouple times but in the end I will win ...

    Genre tags...why bother?
    The leads aren't whiny little sissy babies? The bad guys aren't disproportionately strong!? The protagonist's mech is a 17th century British fop!?!?

    'Not another school mecha'
    So much parody.
    More brilliant work from Studio BONES.

    A rather bland anime
    Star Driver is a pretty bland anime. It's good, but very little actually happens.There is very little character development, the plot is non-dynamic and too focused on what characters are thinking about the future, and the mecha battles are short and the outcome is always the same. The biggest gripe I had with the show is that it resembles Aura Cryin' too much for having come out just a year ...

    I would still watch it
    This anime had a good character and like other character he was overpowered and there was always a new way for him to defeat his opponents.It was like daja vu because the senes was the same every time when his robot came to kick some butt.The opening and ending songs where awesome.If you like fan service unlike me this is your anime to watch.

    Official Lakewatch Review
    I went looking for a new episode of sket dance to watch and noticed this. Now this is an anime I saw and finished some time ago so this will be more of a retrospective review than my normal fair.

    That said I discovered this last year when JesuOtaku included it in her top 20 anime opening of the year.

    Needless to say I actually stayed for the great animation and fun characters. This is ...

  • This was one glorious surprise!
    Everyone talked about the colors, the animation, and the music, so I gave it go.

    Well, what about the intellectual and life lesson side of the show?

    That was what really struck me. See, while the characters were doing their amusing, fun, or crazy antics, we were being fed some amazing themes. It took friendship, goals, love, and beliefs so much deeper than most shows. It did so while still ...

  • Beautiful and entertaing, but the movie is better!
    After seening all 25 episodes (600 minutes or 10 hours), I agree with most of the other reviews given here. Then I read that a movie version was made, not as an OVA but as a retelling of the series. I found it on the Web and watched it. It was only 2.5 hours long (150 minutes), and all of the repetitive battle scenes were removed, and a few extra was added or changed, but the movie beginning ...

  • Acceptably entertaining, but no better
    Great art, good soundtrack, interesting characters, and hints of an interesting plot.

    But only hints. The series drops all kinds of little hints and references to what may well be a rich and fascinating backstory, yet makes good on not one ounce of it. The series ends having never answered fundamental questions of the true nature of what happened, what set it in motion, nor the purpose. Add in ...

    A bit over the top, but still entertaining.
    While the design of the secret organization is over the top and the fact that libido is the power behind these mechs, it is a very entertaining anime.

    The characters all have interesting internal conflicts that develop. The mech battles are great and you never get tired of the protagonist's over-the-top entrance sequence. The underlying love triangle is also fun and is never resolved leaving ...
