Xebec, keepin’ it classy, as always. This skirt was pulled off multiple times from the bodies of multiple people in one day.
The episode starts off with a girl, Madoka, staring at the ocean, saying “I hope we can be happy like this forever.” As soon as she says that, she sees a drowning boy, pulls her skirt down, and goes to rescue him. We never see the boy again. He exists only as an excuse for the girl to come to school in her swimsuit.
The villains are the corniest people imaginable: bishies walking around on the surface of the moon. We learn that Madoka has made a promise with a robot to unite their hearts as one. The whole premise makes me want to barf.
And Madoka is the type of character I can’t stand. She’s good at everything she does, is cheerful, eager and popular. She can even pilot a giant robot on her first try. In short, she’s a character who’s supposed to be loved by everyone (including the viewers) but is completely empty inside.
This show also had an awful sense of humor. The creators seem to think that girls pulling their skirts down are funny. The jokes are horribly timed too. Take for example the female lead shouting “This feels icky!” when the robot transforms. Ha ha ha. It’s not like I was taking anything seriously before that, but still, way to ruin the mood… The jokes weren’t even funny enough to merit a groan.
I’ll keep watching this— it does have giant robots after all— but my expectations are low.
