SSSS.Gridman Review — A-

A giant robot fights monsters.

This was really good. I’d never heard of Gridman before, but my understanding is that it’s a fairly traditional tokusatsu show. My favorite part of this show is that all the characters are shockingly adaptable. A monster showed up and destroyed the school? Eh, whatever, no big deal. Even the heroes have very little motivation to fight the monsters. There’s not a sense of urgency, but a strong sense of “man, what a pain in the ass.”

I also love the villain, Akane. She is totally my type.
