I recently came across this review of Flag
http://youtube.com/watch?v=Buv8pl-Ni2w

To me, it looked really unique, original, and just plain different. I like the concept of it and seems to offer a different kind of 1st hand point of view of what's going on in the star.

Has anyone here that can also say this is worth a shot?

Its just sounds like it will be anouther Mech anime to me but then I just read about it on WIKI. here is the Quote from it

Quote:
Saeko Shirasu is a 25 year wartime front-line photo-journalist who became a celebrity after taking a picture of civilians raising a makeshift UN flag in war-torn Uddiyana. The image then became an instant symbol for peace. However, just before the peace agreement is achieved, the flag was stolen by an armed extremist group in order to obstruct the truce. The UN peacekeepers decide to send in secretly a SDC (pronounced as Seedac - Special Development Command) unit to retrieve the flag. Because of her connection with the "Flag" photo, Saeko Shirasu was offered the job of following the SDC unit as frontline journalist. The SDC unit is equipped with a HAVWC (pronounced as Harvick - High Agility Versatile Weapon Carrier) Mecha robot tank.
This is not very descriptive so I might be wrong.

It looks pretty cool to me! I am thinking about starting this one up myself. Sure its a mech show but I bet it has a good story behind it.

Hmm never heard of it, but after watching that clip, i will def check this out. They way they tell the story seems very original and im actually looking forward to seeing this. The visuals of it seems very intrestingtoo. Plus its got mech's, im a huge mech fan.

I like the more realistic(?) mech shows. That doesn't really describe it right. I guess I prefer the mechs to be more FMP less Godanner.

Does this look to fit the bill?

halfway through episode 2, and i can easily say this is one of the hardest things ever ive had to force myself to sit through.

SO. FREAKING. BORING.

(and i love slow slice of life shows such as kino, etc... so it's not that)

i am going to try to stomach 4 episodes total of this and will check in with a final note. in general it definitely is filmed very differently, which is cool, but that doesn't change the fact that it's insanely, insanely slow and boring (with uneven pacing)
