In the first couple of episodes, we are quickly introduced to the plot concept--Minimic beasts ransacking the world--and the characters (as above).
Whether or not this is for you will depend on your personal tastes. This is a show in a new genre of its own. Hopefully more shows like this will be made in the future.
Story: So far there seems to be a decent story behind all of the action, but mostly this is a show about fighting and action. In fact, all 5 episodes on this first DVD contain nothing but fighting!! Everyone runs around shouting and fighting continuously for the whole length of every episode. At most 3 minutes per episode is left over to spend on the story and character development. There's no time to talk when monsters keep destroying your city 24 hours a day, 7 days a week!! Giant robots to the rescue!!
Art: I think Godannar has an excellent art style. If you saw the trailer (or the DVD box) you might think this is one of those big-boobie-girly type animes. But so far this show has mainly been about fighting. The big-boobie shiny girls are there just to look nice but they don't seem to detract from the action.
Animation: By far the best animation quality of any anime I've ever seen. Imagine the most action-packed high-quality cool anime intro you've ever seen, then imagine an anime just like that except with the high-quality animation lasting throughout each episode, and you get Godannar!!
Directing: Godannar is actually done in a fairly serious manner, with extremely fast-paced excellent directing. There is a continuous stream of comedy being injected into the show at all times (due to all the big-boobie girls and craziness) but it's totally kept in control by the overall serious (though unrealistic and stylized) nature of the constant fighting and shouting that goes on.Read more ›
