Darling in the FranXX — First Impressions

Darling gets in the FranXX.

Great first episode. I love mecha shows. This looks set to be a great one.

I’ve seen a lot of comparisons to Star Driver, and it seems fairly obvious the mecha and the villains’ costumes took some inspiration from Star Driver. It reminds me a bit of Eureka Seven thematically. And the setting seems similar to Chrome Shelled Regios (fortunately nothing else does). All mecha shows take inspiration from each other though, I don’t think that’s any reason to dismiss the show though. I mean, look at Rahxephon. Pretty much copied Evangelion, and made it a hundred times better.

Also, such ridiculous levels of sexual innuendo. I don’t even have to use my imagination here.

Looking forward to the rest!

  1. I don’t think it even qualifies as innuendo any more. I bet the final boss will be literally powered by the power of gattai. Not of the robots, of the pilots. They will actually have to fuck in the cockpit to power up the robot.
