Robotics: Notes: Part One (Blu-ray/DVD Combo) (Limited Edition)
Frequently bought together
Kai and Aki dream of building a giant fighting robot based on a super-popular anime, but that’s going to be impossible if they don’t get more members into their school’s Robot Research Club. They’ll take anyone they can talk—or force—into joining them, including an eccentric robotics champion with a secret identity and a l33t video-game designer who’s spent one too many late nights online. Finally, their goal looks like it’s within reach.

Also, VERY cool to see a girl excited about STEM and actively involved in it. She's the main driving force behind getting this robot built, running, and entered into a competition. Could be a great gift for the budding female scientist or engineer in your family or friends.
The series held the attention of everyone in the family. Good quality. Well written. Lots of fun to watch. We will get part 2.

Much is made of the fact that this is the third anime set in the universe shared by Chaos;Head and Steins;Gate (the semicolon is important) Frankly I'm disappointed. Without chucking spoilers about, there is a fair bit of "urgent thing needs doing - main protagonist stops doing anything at all in order to shout/show angst". So much could be achieved by just getting the a**e in gear. Likewise I think there's way too many "with one bound he was free" moments, deus ex machine if you like -
Frankly I thought we didn't get to the meat & potatoes of the plot until the last disc, the last three episodes... and even then we have what I would call a Titfield Thunderbolt moment which you may shudder at when it turns up.
Well, I paid for it, and I don't actually regret watching it, but..... its a passable if not great anime made in 2012 and set in 2018/20. Its a society much more wired and capable in the robotics field than we are, but the folks are just as prone to self blame and introspection.
Fight scenes not bad, not sensational. Characters not bad, not exceptional. Character specialities not bad, interesting....and I'm not going to spoil them for you when they are important to the plot.
I'm going to post this on both part 1 and part 2, you need to see part 1 to get part 2, and see part 2 for the significant parts of the plot. Sometimes a plot is convoluted and confusing because the authors are super cunning. I don't get that impression here, but I'll give it 4 stars.
