Holy shit so fucking good. This is why I watch anime.
Giant robots launched into outer space by rockets! Mysterious enemies intent on destroying the Earth from the moon. (fuck the moon. no seriously.) Politicking between some who want to fight the invaders and some who want to feel Earth on an ark (presumably). A boy with a mysterious past. A girl awakened from her sleep in a floating cocoon. A father who died fighting the alien invasion.
Even more shocking, characters who aren’t deathly afraid of the opposite sex!
I watch a lot of anime now. But Bones mecha shows like Rahxephon and Eureka Seven are really what got me into anime in the first place. (Well, OK, and Code Geass. OK, mostly Code Geass.) But the point is, OMG THIS IS AWESOME CAN’T WAIT. Will be blogging this unless other shows are so good this is the best anime season in the history of the world.
