Episode 1

Not bad, it has potential with the robotics theme. It reminded me a little bit of Robotics;Notes and even Gundam Build Try.

It didn't take long for the episode to jump right into the robot action. I got a feel of a very competitive show between the characters. The OP song is okay, pretty energetic in ways.

Hmm, the characters seems okay but that Tei guy might be hard to make friends with. I'm not sure about the other cast yet, going to keep an eye on them.

Tbh, I think this show is fine but really lacks good characters or rather memorable ones.

The main character is the typical robotic fanatic that although I have no problem with isn't very interesting. Then, there's Kei, a character that is hard to make friends with. He just takes everything so seriously in particular when it comes to robotics competition. The comedyy is so-so, can't say it's impressive but it's there.

This anime reminds me a bit of Robotics;Notes a little.
I hope they make the characters more likable like from Gundam Build Fighters/Try.

Just watched the first two episodes just now.

I actually really enjoyed this tbh. I have a soft spot for robotics (it's one of the fields I'm thinking of going into when graduating) so I've generally enjoyed most of the shows about robots I've seen.
It's probably set sometime in the near future from the looks of it (voice-controlled drones as complex as the one the MC built would probably be a bit too complicated for a college student imo but I believe that some companies such as Amazon are developing them) which was one of the things I really enjoyed about it. It kinda reminds me of my own society at university (we actually have a drone society but it's not nearly as interesting as shooting down another drone and apparently they don't do much lmao)
As un:c is singing the opening!!! Ngl I was internally screaming when I heard his voice (I need to get back into listening to utaites lol).
The biggest problem I had with this show was the characters (which I kinda expected). They weren't as bad as I thought they would be, but none of them really stand out or are really that likeable. The presidents an asshole, but at least the people around him seem to realise that. Considering the fact that he betrayed the other team, I can't help but think that there's a reason for his attitude.
Also I can't get over the fact that the MC looks like Onoda from Yowapeda (and they even have the same VA!!!). He wasn't as spineless and wimpy as I expected him to be. The rest of the characters were either extremely cliche or just not memorable.
