Plot Summary


The story is set in the distant future. The land is ruined, and humanity establishes the mobile fort city Plantation. Pilots produced inside Plantation live in Mistilteinn, also know as the "birdcage." Children live there knowing nothing of the outside world or the freedom of the sky. Their lives consist of battling to carry out missions. Their enemies are mysterious giant lifeforms known as Kyōryū, and the children pilot robots called Franxx to face off against them. For the children, riding the Franxx proves their existence.

A boy named Hiro is called Code:016, and he was once known as a prodigy. However, he has fallen behind, and his existence seems unnecessary. Not piloting a Franxx is the same as ceasing to exist. One day, a mysterious girl known as "Zero Two" appears before him. Two horns grow out of her head.

And now the hype is in the home stretch. Can't wait until 9am as Darling in the FranXX should really be something. At the very least, it will be visually amazing with an all-star production team, but of course that only guarantees it looks great. Whether the show is great or not, that remains to be seen as it just doesn't always translate on the story side of things. Anyway, I have been looking forward to this quite a lot.

V That's 9am Pacific.

So I haven't been keeping up with anime all that much recently. Is this like a new Valvrape... I mean Valvrave type project? Although the description seems a bit more Cross Ange-ish.

And it's finally time for Darling in the FranXX, no 404's to worry about. The first episode is now up after quite a long time hyping up Trigger's latest project. http://www.crunchyroll.com/darling-in-the-franxx/episode-1-alone-and-lonesome-759575

Episode 1

And it all starts with a fateful encounter as Hiro and Zero-Two meet in perverse fashion. Hiro is a disgraced pilot after his former quit and subsequently got killed. Somewhere, Hiro lost his motivation after being hailed as a prodigy, but now he's trying to figure out how to get back into the thick of things seeing that those who can't pilot are disposable trash. But opportunity knocks when Zero-Two's partner dies and despite wanting to go solo, Hiro just won't let it happen seeing that those mechas can't be piloted alone. Seeing that he's dead anyway if he refuses to pilot, of course he has reason to fight alongside. The show is certainly delivering as the visuals are great as expected out of Trigger, while the story has been lots of intrigue to it.

Zero Twooooooo

I want her to be my darling too. On a serious note, this was a really interesting episode. The world building looks nice and I'm really interested in most of the characters, especially Zero 2.

The monsters in this series looks like the ones from God Eater except without CG crap. The visual looks over the top especially for the mecha but I really like the style of it. Great start, I'm looking forward to more for sure.

And that kiss!

*screaming* THIS WAS SO GOOD!
It looks stunning and oh my goodness, I absolutely LOVE the mecha designs. The main two characters seem pretty intriguing so far (especially Zero Two I love her <3) and I really can't wait to see where this will go.

Episode 1

The first episode introduces us to Hiro a prodigy who failed to synch with his partner and is now a disgrace as a pilot. A girl with horns decides to find a place to bathe and jumps into a lake and Hiro happens to show up and finds her their. Since Hiro can't pilot he and his partner are going to sent away. When it came time for that his partner pushes him as she feels that he still has a purpose and that's when they are attacked by creatures called Kyoryu. The girl he meet attacks it with her FRANXX but her pilot ends up dying so Hiro not wanting to let her fight alone decide to join her and actives the FRANXX true power and defeats them easily.

Trigger is back with another great story to tell. The first episode introduces to our lead Hiro who thinks his life is worthless but after meeting Zero Two that all changes. The story is interesting as we learn more about this world and we got some nice fan service from Zero Two. The action was the best part as we get a taste of what we can expect in future episodes. DARLING in the FRANXX starts off to a great start. Looking forward to more.
