Originally, was not really sure about this anime, and I delayed watching it even after buying the collection, but when I did, I was pleasantly surprised that the series had fun, enjoyable characters, and I watched the whole collection in one day. The story is about a girl named Madoka Kyouno, who is a member of her school's jersey club, which is a club that helps people in need. She shortly meets a girl named Fin E Ld Si Laffinty, but due to the difficulty of saying her entire name every time, she is simply called Lan. She is actually from another planet, and requires Madoka's assistance by piloting a giant robot to fight against invading hostile forces. They also meet another girl called Muginami, and the three of them become pilots. Its not much of a spoiler to state that they become pilots because the three of them are on the cover and are seen in the opening and ending theme songs.
In most mecha anime, the pilots are usually boys like in Gundam Wing, but this anime specifically uses girls as pilots, which is a nice switch.Read more ›
Overall it ws a good story. While not focusing on any particular girl you get to see how they mix and work together - from Modoka's drive to help people, to Lan's fears, to Negumi's past. The action sequences were amazing and the voice acting was spot on. the only thing is it realy was not an MA show, while it has some brief nudity and panty shots there was nothing that really put it in an MA level (Moshiro:the color of love had more of both and that is a TV-14). But a good story, if a second collection comes out I will look forwad to getting it.
The animation feels like a mix of Eureka Seven and Inu Yasha though obviously not the same but if you've seen the other series you might see some similarity. The voice cast for the Japanese sub was very talented and so was the English cast for the most part though there was one or two that felt a little miscast for their roles. While there are two seasons(26 episodes) this set only has the first half so we'll have to be patient for the second though no worries as this sets final episode is done so there isn't a big to be continue arc so most people won't feel annoyed at having to wait for the second half.
