  • Hell of a good ride!
    Got me captivated from the start of the series and kept it that way through to the end. Good plot twists and fun loving. Enough of a romantic angle to keep all audiences involved. One of my favorite anime that I have watched in the past year. The art and music are great and the story line is just far reaching enough to make it interesting before becoming strange.

  • I don't even know why I like this show
    I don't even know why I like this show it could be the flashy battle scenes (I'm a sucker for shiny things), it could be the setting, the characters, just about anything.

    However there are two things that did it in for me.
    THE MUSIC: HOLY MOTHER OF CHRIST!
    the fact that they use the animation medium properly. Specifically they use motion to describe things, sure there are info dumps (mainly ...

  • Great Show to watch and be on edge
    The show is great, though there probably could of been more to be added on episodes and at the end, there should come to be a sequel as to what happens from there since Takuto is still in his cy-boby and has to still get back to the surface some how all the while revealing the cy-body.

  • At first I thought about stopping, but then I got hooked
    Personally I am not into anything that looks even remotely like someone enjoys Yaoi. However, the flashy characters and solid story makes this a show worth watching. It takes a few episodes to get invested but once you do it is all smooth sailing from there. An island with a secret, a strange mech, and someone found washed up on the shore. Gotta watch this 5 star show!

    Hey, For What It Is, You Could Do Much Worse!
    Well, this will be my first review for this site! Okay, Star Driver....*sigh* First, let me start by saying that I, while enjoying it immensely, have really been slacking on my anime viewing as of the past few years. Star Driver is the first anime I've finished since Kill la Kill ended back in early 2014, and one of only about 10 anime that I've finished in like 6 years. This, most likely, ...

    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 ...

    Could care less if they make another season.
    This show was very bland and plain to say the least. If you seen one episode, you've seen them all.... literally. Outside of a few side events, every episode was exactly the same. I only watched it through because I wanted to see what happened at the end, and even the end of the show wasn't nearly what I was hoping for. No character development, no suspense, and never a desire to look forward to ...

    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 ...
