  • Loved it! Wish there was more!
    I found this through an anime recommendation video on TikTok. I knew it was short but I still find myself wishing it was longer. I loved the story and would've liked to see more of the world. The last two episodes were interesting as the main story was over. It was nice to see what happened from the commander's perspective. Although it was sad to see it turn out the way it did. I enjoyed the ...

  • One of the best MECHA anime.
    I have watch this since like, well, 11 or 10 perhaps and I still remember most of it. Leo, the guy who just got transported to earth and adapts a new life here in the planet, saving people from aliens and monsters. The ending was pretty decent but the anime has a very strong start. I rate this a 5, because I really love MECHA anime shows a lot. Still, a pretty good show with idealistic action ...

  • Water World x Gundam x Battlestar Galactica
    Ever wondered what the movie Water World would be like if they had access to Gundams? Well, look no further! For this anime answers that question with a bit of Battlestar Galactica thrown in!

    Now if that sounds like a weird Hodge Podge mix that can't be a good show... you'd be wrong.

    The show was rather enjoyable and I was pleasantly surprised.

  • It's 5 stars but I didn't enjoy it?
    Drawing: 5
    Animation:5
    Story 5
    Pacing 5
    Etc 5
    Everything about this is so well done that it deserves to be praised. In a time when you don't get amines without excessive cliches and generic plots this was in many ways salve.
    In many I truly got into the storyline but midway I kind of....just didn't care anymore. I can;t state enough how great so much of this was, Even the fights were ...

  • Short and sweet, keeps you intrigued throughout.
    I'm going to come right out and say that this anime wouldn't be so great if it ran much longer. It accomplished what it wanted to in a quick and concise manner, almost perfect in a way. It provides a lot of insight to some interesting philosophical questions, such as the true nature of humanity, what makes someone or something useful, and also raises questions about what actions could be ...

  • Great short series!!
    Excellent!
    A good show doesn't have to be 100 episodes long and this one proves it!
    It has a good plot and a great delivery with something for everyone: action, intrigue, and a cute message.
    This is one of my favourite animes of all times and I strongly recommend it.

  • an amazing story and so cute!
    this is just such a pretty and beautiful story. not only is it funny, cute, but it honestly makes you think about humanity. i love mecha/action/romance so this was just a perfect fit for me. im so sad i didn't find out about this early as it's such a pretty story. i'm very happy that there are OVAs. SPOILER? there is no season 2 so don't get too disheartened to not watch this. This is just so ...

    One of the best shows i have seen
    I watched this on Netflix like 20 times sooo good wanted more. also it was dubbed. this show had a great story and its one of the shows that i thought could have gone on for like 4 years or more. You will not be disappointed watching this and the first episode has a one part that if your drinking /eating you will LOL so hard you will do a spit take.

  • Why has no one heard of this anime?
    The artwork is stunning, the animation is a dream to watch and the story is well written and engrossing.

    I don't write spoilers, so there won't be any details here about this show. I would highly recommend this show to anyone who loves anime of all sorts and especially to those who are interested in art.

  • Awesome show. Highly recommend.
    I enjoyed it tremendously, recommend it as a quick mecha. Great plot that doesn't spend to much time boring you with details and filler. I doubt there will be, but a second season someday would be awesome to expand and explore the world more. Again, give it a watch!
