I want to enjoy this show and probably will if it's any good... but I can't help asking the question:

Wouldn't it be easier to just make the plane automated instead of a whole separate humanoid robot to pilot it?

also why do they all have be girls? oh Japan.


Gonna have a feminist rant about anime culture or something?

Oh please, the whole premise is utterly ridiculous- and it is hardly a "feminist rant" to point out that once again for the thinnest reasons girls are doing something, or barely dressed etc. in an anime. You could have the same "rant" about children instead of adults in many animes.

As it was I have to admit after this episode was done I really didn't know exactly how I felt. Should I just think of it as yet another quirky anime that just is rather silly, or is it really too ridiculous after all? I suppose I'll know in an episode or two whether or not I still enjoy it despite the sillier aspects.

Because the PLAAF still flies the locally produced version of the MiG-21. (Granted not in any large numbers now, but still...)



J-7 is significantly modernized from Soviet Mig-21 in every respect. China still has like 300 of them. The chinese version has about 10% more thrust , 30% more range and can hit mach 2.

Same reason beer commercials in the 80s and 90s were like that. They have a demographic they want to attract. Now we'll see if the pilots power up by being fondled by Kei....

You know it really has nothing to do with my being female, rather with me wanting things to have bare minimum of sense. And yeah, if anime as a whole is only targeted at men, and young immature men at that, that is stupid and lacking imagination since the watching demographic is a lot broader than that. But then from the last part of your response that description might fit you perfectly- and be careful with that argument- I'm sure I have seen you complain over various animes for tropes of other kinds, and should you ever do so again, one could be tempted to quote you back to yourself every time you do.

go and watch other anime.. this one is targeted at men ... go watch something else. seriously if you don't like it don't complain. Bare minimum of sense...... your talking about anime.. when has anything in anime ever made sense? called anime logic for a reason. What tropes have i complained about? i don't like yaoi and yuri and generally don't watch it because i find it cringy..... pretty much the only one i have ever complained about.

There are no men pilots because this is a romance/action anime and the mc is male. Done.

True, but it still looks like a MiG-21.

No, this is targeted at boys.

Men don't jump down someone's throat on an anime forum for not liking their new waifu.

-.-

Dude I am a man and I thought this was meh at best. It's pretty much a rip off of Arpeggio of Blue Steel but with planes instead of ships. Sex has nothing to do with bad anime it's just bad anime

Personally I wish CR had gone with Kotobuki instead of this. The planes might still be CG, but at least they're not neon.

The entire plot synopsis is a bad mad lib from Japan's bargain bin of show ideas. I'm not convinced there isn't some sort of generic plot generator for shows like this. Along with Isekai and Cute Girls Doing Cute Things shows.

Fill in the blanks and send it to production. >.>

Wait, there's two shows like this in the same season?
