Very good story/character development driven mecha anime
on March 26, 2012
I have been waiting to get my hands on the blu-ray version of this anime. It's a very good story/character development driven anime, like The Vision of Escaflowne TV series. Yeah, you have the mecha battles and etc, but you also have just as much good character development and engrossing storyline as the mecha stuff. I think that's why I enjoyed this anime as much as I did. You get the same immersive experience when the mecha battles are going on as you do when the "other stuff outside of the mecha stuff"(the human drama) is going on. So, you get the best of both worlds.
Anyway, the blu-ray version gives you the full HD treatment. The video is presented in 16x9 aspect ratio and 1080p resolution, so if you have a nice HD TV, the visuals will be nice eye candy for you. Both the English language and Japanese language tracks are encoded in DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1, so you will definitely get "theater quality" surround sound, especially if you have a nice home theater set up. Highly recommended.
