    Not as bad as the title
    There is no doubt its a giant robot mecha anime. But it is not so much about the robots themselves. The main focus is the main hero and his story. "I opened the door called truth. My childhood ended." Are the second things you read, after CAPTAIN EARTH. The title felt so cheesy that I didn't raise my expectations as high as I should have. The first thing i think of when hearing this title is ...

    Are you the Captain?
    "When I opened the door called Truth, my childhood ended, it was a summer I could never forget." This quote alone completely describes how Captain Earth will impact mech anime lovers for this spring/summer of 2014 and for the future, by doing exactly as this quote states, making it a summer "I could never forget." Captain Earth's poster and thumbnail alone is what drove me to watch this anime for ...

    I really enjoyed episode 1
    This anime shows promise. I did kinda chuckle to myself that this kid knew how to control that Gundam looking mech. He had some serious chops to just jump in there like that. Even with that out of the way I still enjoyed this episode and I am looking forward to seeing how the draw out the characters of this show. For some reason this just had a Ender's Game vibe to it. I'm excited about this one.

    its similer to mobile suit gundam seed
    loving it. it's gotten me to laugh a little bit. it is promising i just hope it isn't 25 episodes something long i hope there is a a few seasons or something. unlike Strike the Blood i was really liking it and as well as Magical Warfare i was really loving that show. but captain earth for the first 2 episodes they were really good.

    I'm Sort of Torn About Captain Earth
    I really don't know if this show is good or not. Character motivation seems lazy often attributing character actions by some sort of celestial force. The protagonist's knowledge or complete lack thereof of his situation confuses me about why he's doing what he's doing. He knows he must protect the planet. He knows how to pilot a huge mech he's never touched before. But in subsequent scenes he has ...

    i have to force myself to watch.
    I don't like that I have to force myself to watch this show, its sad really. I'm up to the 4th episode and I'm about ready to drop this. I'll admit I'm not the biggest mecha fan. Mostly older mechs like eureka7 and the original NGE, and as of late robotics notes. but i was kinda hyped for this being that bones was doing it. So every week i'd get pumped about my episodes coming out, and yet I'd ...

    Far to go but moving there
    I was randomly directed to this show and I have to say it was a happy event. I'm about half way through the released episodes so far, and I have to say that there is a lot of predictability. However, there is also a lot of unexpected surprised. The one liners though infrequent are gems when they occur, and the sense of humor is funny on a few different levels. There is the face value which ...

    It has Potential to be great
    From just watching the eps they have out so far I feel this anime can be really good. i feel they are building up the characters well and even thou the storyline feels slow it is a nice change. It is making me feel that the team is learning about them selfs and that something big will start in the near future.

    Classic Bones Anime.
    If you like Star driver, Gurren Lagann, or Eureka 7 you'll love this shit. The main character isnt useless and the visuals are pretty good. I loved how some of the shots that they made such as in the opening scene where the rocket is blasting off and the kid is in the foreground. There's tons of that stuff. The rainbow element looks nuts. I'm pretty sure I saw it in a dream I had once. Also ...

    Interesting but suffers from good plot pacing
    I cannot seem to get to the bottom of my displeasure with this anime. It has all the things I enjoy from this genre of anime (Giant robots, secret government agencies saving the world, parallels of an innocent youthful summer vacation, space battles; etc) but for some reason I cannot seem to be excited for this show. It harkens me back to the years of Evangelion or RahXephon; but for some reason ...
