    I'm sure there are plenty of mecha fans on TFW so this one's right up your alley.

    Mecha designs are by a fan favorite Shoji Kawamori (of Eureka Seven, Aquarion, Escaflowne, and Macross fame) so here's hoping it'll be great.

    I thought it was going to be about how dumb TF Kissplay is ;) 

    If Kawamori is doing the designs, I have no doubt that the robots are all going to look cool. If he's also in charge of the story, I have no doubt that I'll really like the entire show.

    I'm not typically into these types of mechs but these look pretty cool.

    This spring is looking to be the season of mecha. Between this, Heroic Age, Gigantic Formula, Dancougar Nova, Reideen, Xenoglossia, Sakura Taisen NY NY, and about a halrf dozen others i've forgotten the names of already, more mecha then you can shake a stick at.

    I have to remember to grab it when I get home.

    I've heard its pretty bad actually. Word is not even the mech designs can save it.

    Caterwaul, you forgot Gurren Lagaan, the best and most over-the-top show of the season, imo.

    I'm kinda put off by the shiesty character animation. You're right......even the mech designs can't save it.

    Bummer. From what I gather the character flies those fighter jets. I'm going to hazard a guess and say that he's such a badass fighter pilot that he can in a dog fight of 1 vs 5 he can shoot down all 5 jets without taking damage.

    Wingmen in air combat are uber important.

    Whoops. Knew I was forgetting an important one. It also has the bounciest girl of the lot, too. But then, it IS Gainax.

    Well. I guess I'll give it a few more episodes to gain some steam. I shouldn't judge after a 23 minute episode.

    ...Having watched the first ep...WTF?
    Does anyone have ANY idea WTH was going on? I spent half the episode scratching my head. The transforming mecha was cool, though.

    Does it make more sense with ep 2? Because ep 1 didnt exactly fill me with confidence about the series.
