I Like the themes of the show, all parasites need the perfect pilot to master them, you can't be a gold digger for free.

On a serious note, I actually liked that a lot, very into the style and interested in how they explain their world. Trigger always knows up to up the lvl with their mechs so we are in for a wild ride since they are now partnering with A1 for this.

Zero looks like best woman material, like how can you not with a name like Zero 2.

hmmmm so i liked it so far. very interested in the lore and how the mechs work but..... it felt a little tame for a trigger anime. And i don't want to pigeon hole trigger into being the studio that only does CRAZY WACKY COO-COO SHENANIGANS! And I also know A-1 is co-producer and its probably more their anime than it is triggers BUT idk kinda felt not much happened? and I don't mean story wise, its just the first ep i dont expect full on explanation of every little thing from the get go, I more mean just, not a lot of movement until the end.

I believe it will get more engaging over time but just didn't feel it was a strong start.

I take it the female pilots will voice the mechs? Didn't Zero Two make Streliza talk at the very end? 8o

Zero Two is a very weird girl. I like her already!

It looks like this is going to be more serious than Trigger's other works. Even the fan service with Zero Two wasn't used in a comedic way other than Hiro holding her underwear. Everything from the setting to the overall tone of the episode felt serious and most of the adults in the crowd looked like something you'd see in a messed up society. That fight was great. I like how the mechs appear to be more organic than machine like in Evangelion. This show is off to a good start.

I liked the idea of the 1 winged bird they bring up. I feel like although the birds can easily find a partner it wont settle until it finds the perfect match. I'm sure birds aren't that picky, although there would probably be a problem if one bird had a shorter wing than the other. The idea that that each pilot of the Franxx needs to have a Darling but it can't be just anyone, they need to have the same size wing. I liked the comparison they did. (I might be overthinking it)

Also im a fan of Studio Trigger, so I've been hyped about this anime since it was announced. along with everything else Trigger is working on for this year.

This was very Trigger. I thought I didn't like that, but now I'm not so sure. The end of the episode especially was awesome with that sweet soundtrack and animation. I think I'm gonna have a lot of fun watching this week to week.

Mechs are designed by the same person who designed the mechs in Star Driver.

Ok this was beyond amazing. One of the strongest opening episode I saw in a huge while. This season will be intense. This+CCS+Evegarden. Save me from too many good anime.

Story wise, doesn't seem out of the ordinary, but I did enjoy the episode a lot, perhaps cos it reminds me a little of Evangelion.
Thought the 3D buildings looked a bit cheap, and the monsters not as cool as I'd like, but it's early days.

More importantly, 02 is da best, and quite horny. Surprisingly, they gave away her origins already as having Klaxosaur blood, which was strongly suggested in the first few minutes. I wonder who 01 is, and if there is a Rei 00.

Not sure if they really needed to use flower terminology like Pistils and Stamens, you could just say boy and girl. Oh, and does it have to be a male & female? What about the all-conquering female & female?

Looking forward to more world-building.



Yes ma'am!

That certainly ticked off pretty much every checkbox on the mecha show checklist. Not that it was bad but more that it was exactly as expected. Could have done without the super overdone naked swimming bit at the start but other than that it was pretty solid. I'll definitely be back next week to see more.

Oh, not really a fan of the mech designs at all though. That's easily the weakest element of the show for me. They're definitely not cool or even ugly, they're just kind of dumb looking.
