It is completely over-the-top crazy and wildly entertaining, and fails to fit in a neatly defined genre. The writing is pure genius and has carried over well into the anime which despite its complexity doesn't stop for long-winded explanations, but rather sweeps the audience away with the constant hands-on revelations about the structure of its world. This anime will confuse in the beginning you need to have strong mind that all i can say,its intriguing series that has me hooked up. There is a bit of something for everyone from Tons of action, an underlying love story, to raunchy comedy, Oh yeah Fanservice, most characters have Large Boobs.
There are many whiners that dun understand it at all, gave up on series early there lost, there is a good chance the series will continue for a long time. There Season 2 out now, may come more 3 to 4, I hope.
I bought this anime when it came out. There were no reviews or information on it yet. I was quite surprised. The first episode had me laughing out loud. At that time I could also see signs of a dramatic story in the works as well. There is an excellent mixture of comedy, drama, action, and suspense, not to mention boat loads of fan service. Most of the chicks are totally stacked, and the main character likes to run around fondling them and pulling their pants down. Along with those things this series also flaunts an amazing English vocal cast, high quality animation, and great character designs. It's got some unique themes as well as some typical anime hijinks. If I had to give you a frame of reference I would say this series very much reminds me of Infinite Stratos. I think I can see a little bit of Shattered Angels type stuff in here too. I have seen some pretty good animes come out in 2012. This series is no exception. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
P.S. I'll give you a tidbit. Horizon is the name of the girl on the Blu-ray case cover.
This show had the most unique battle technique I have seen in any story. What was that technique? A debate. No, that's not a joke. That just gives you an idea of how different (and good) this show is. The characters decide to battle with a debate and what a debate! The main male character starts off with a unique tactic in this unique battle strategy that I have never before seen in a debate. Watch to find out what it was.
This anime will have to be watched twice to understand fully what is going on as it doesn't explain the background and when the characters do exposition the history or their circumstances, it is still full with gaps. A special glossary should have been included in the Extras section of the discs but wasn't. I did watch this show twice and, to once again prove how good this show is, I had just as much fun watching this a second time as I did the first.
I won't recap the story description that is posted with the details so I will cut to the chase.
Characters - They are well developed (not talking upper body assets) and for the most part have a unique personality. (hate the class pres character, he is a weird and it makes no sense why anyone talks to him ... but they do so w/e)
Story - Its actually good.
Animation - Very clean, action scenes are well animated and I haven't seen a botched/error yet)
Issues: For me a really confusing part was figuring out what the hell people were talking about when it came to locations ... It wasn't until later that I learned that the ship and the province they are from was named the exact same thing .... at first I thought it was a translation issue.
I didn't really like the way the story arc ended in this 1st season, it seemed odd, from a motivation stand point. But the fallout from season 1 carries over into season 2 so strange events aside it gets picked up in season 2.
