    A Unique and Telling Twist on Our Own Modern Relationships
    There is a great deal of depth to this anime, far beyond the surface level cries of 'sexual exploitation' that some are spouting. The society depicted in this anime mirrors our own in a few unique ways. For one, I do not look at the process of piloting the FRANXX as 'male dominance'. The themes evident here are immediately sexual. As such, the male-female duo is not unlike the act of procreation ...

    After episode 13 This show Is in my all time favortis.
    This show has a very slow build up exploring relations ships and what it means to be human in a world where humans have stripped themselves of humanity. Kids raised more like machines than people struggle to understand how to relate to each other.

    World building Is slow and gradual but almost every episode, You get a new puzzle piece of the bigger picture, Prepare to take a while to start ...

    Written in Response to Episode 1 - It is worth a watch
    What a strong debut! The show is like Kill La Kill, Gundam 00, and Gurren Lagann all had a baby together, which for me is awesome because it combines concepts from series that I love. Studio Trigger is back in top form with this new mecha anime. It feels like the true successor to both Kill La Kill and Gurren Lagann. I thoroughly enjoyed the first episode. The animation is top notch and the fight ...

    Hidden Beneath The Innuendos
    So far only two episodes are out and this is what i understand of the show.

    The show is a giant metaphor about relationships, sex, and intimacy. The robot is something symbolic of the relationship between the people controlling it, two people who can manage a good relationship are able to control it well and trust in each other. This can be further observed with the societal and parental ...

    Don't be turned off. Be turned on.
    I will admit by the second episode all of the sexual innuendos had me feeling rather uncomfortable in terms of the focus for this series. At this point in the series Im starting to get the feel of whats going on and rather than cringe I feel myself accepting all the sexual references as part of the art style/aesthetic. I was worried that the show would rely on its sexual nature too much and start ...

    I like it a lot, enough to re-watch multiple times!
    I thoroughly enjoyed the first two episodes (all that is available ATM). So much so that I re-watched them multiply times which is pretty out of character for me as I normally can't be bothered to watch something more than once. Darling in the FranXX is a solid ace for me.

    Great start, Better Middle, Bad Ending
    Enjoyed this show from start till towards end. refreshing and enjoyable, brought something new to the robot / mecha genre.

    only gripe is that god awful ending that almost put me off recommending the show.

    10/10 for the first 19 episodes. 7/10 if you want to finish it
    The plot for most of the show was top tier. I mean TOP TIER. The mysterious nature of everyone outside of squad 13 and their inability to understand what to do with their feelings and growing interest in their own world and lives made for an interesting show. With that said, I absolutely loved this show, recommended it to every anime friend I have, and have Zero Two as one of the backgrounds on my ...

    Acceptance in the FranXX
    I don't usually write reviews, but when I do then it's because I truly cherish an anime. DARLING in the FRANXX can be categorized into several genres but it doesn't necessarily pop out in any of them. And that's what I like about it. It tackles so many things at once, truly making a unique anime viewing experience. Now I, along with many others, believe that this anime had so much potential but ...
