    I've seen the first episode, and it's great, if kinda confusing during the big fight (mainly because the hero doesn't know *how* to fight).

    The odd mecha designs (they all look like giant heads with arms and legs, kinda like giant potato heads of mass destruction) may not be liked by everyone, but they're certainly original and well done.

    the robot activation music reminds me of the Big O, which is a pretty good thing.

    Apparently it's gonna be pretty epic, as the initial small group with a goofy-looking robot evolves to become the most feared force in the universe, possessing the ultimate mecha.

    Also, gotta love a giant robot whose entire body can sprout drills.

    I still haven't seen the second or third episode.

    Anyone else caught up? What do you guys and gals think of GAINAX's latest?

    Can't say that I can get into this one, from what I've tried. Character designs don't do it for me (except the gun toting chick in the bikini)

    The show is pretty over-the-top with its hot blooded characters that dare to do whatever they set their minds too. I look forward to each episode for laughs and giant mechs fighting. Plus the main current villain is voiced by the same VA who does Joe Higashi in the KoF series.

    Got and watched them. This show might have the potential to surpass the TV portion of GaoGaiGar.

    I want to watch this so bad, but it's only in that god-awful mkv format that refuses to load on half the world's computers regardless of plugins and players.

    they need to abandon that shit and just go with avi.

    god, I've tried everything under the sun. VLC, Media Player Classic, some player made just for mkvs and more. and I've installed every codec that the files require, too.

    my computer just refuses to play the damn things, or it will only play the audio.
