Yay, a mecha show!
Off to a decent start, although nothing amazing. It’s a realistic mecha show, more along the lines of UC Gundam than Buddy Complex and Valvrave.
Like your typical mecha show, the protagonist is a fucking idiot. He charges into battle by himself to save a random passerby and quickly gets his ass-handed to him. Fortunately he went to save a cute girl so it was worth it.
Of course, the girl is even dumber. She punches him in the face when he tells her to run away, and says that military bastards like him can’t understand, her job is on the line. Which is of course infinitely more valuable than her life.
Then they have a long, leisurely conversation while the guy’s friend fights the two robots who just defeated him 1 on 2 in the background, without a care in the world. We hear gunfire and an occasional explosion and he rarely even looks up.
I love mecha but sometimes I wish the characters in them could be slightly less stupid. That’s part of the reason I liked Valvrave so much, because at least Valvrave realizes how idiotic it is.
