Has anyone seen this? How is it in your personal opinion?
Ditto, it looks cool.
But is it cool?
i've seen up to 5th dvd, it reminds me of evangelion. the only thing i disliked about what ive seen so far was each dvd only has 3 eps i got spoiled with rurouni kenshin
I saw six episodes and thought it was cheesy as hell.
I'm pretty sure that's Kabuki.
Two yays, two nays.
I have the first two DVDs. I think the story starts to pick up right at the end of the 2nd disc, but I haven't watched past there.
It looks like a conglomeration of a bunch of different anime themes, and very little originality. There's military themes, supernatural themes, giant robot themes, overbearing family themes, global conspiracy themes, etc.
I can't judge the series as a whole since I haven't finished it yet, but it could end up a lot better than it starts out.
The deal with the kabuki dance, as I understand it, is some kind of psychic battle. The two main characters (who seem to be almost direct ripoffs of Shinji and Rei) are the two performers/combatants.
That's my problem with it. It's like they tried to copy NGE by being a serious mech drama, but it just ended up looking cheesy. And can they make the foreshadowing any more blunt and obvious.
