Just finished Episode 3 and I really liked the way Friender and Casshern interacted. Akoes was really good too.

Is this based on the live action movie? I watched it a couple of years ago when it first came out, and wasn't massively impressed... it seemed to try to achieve too much in a short space of time.

No. It is based off the older series that came out in the 80s(I think it was the 80s atleast). You should give this one a shot. Without saying to much about it I will say this, IT IS AWESOME. My favorite so far of the season.

I watched it for about 30 seconds. I couldn't overlook the stupid themesong, the ridiculous costume, and the somewhat dated looking animation.

Seventies. Close enough.

I wasn't impressed by the movie either (only part of the franchise I've seen) and the opening for this title was just... huh? A series of stills unimaginatively arranged. I can't remember the last time I saw such a dull opener. Can't speak for the series itself. I like the design aesthetic, however. Dark, yet retro.

Well it is supposed to be retro. That's why it looks like a 70's show, just with WAY better animation. That's why he is in that sleek costume with that huge collar and the reason the robots look the way they do.

Really, you stopped watching a show because of the op?

Also, I really like the op. A lot better than most of the shows out.

I actually dislike most ops so that doesn't usually deter me. But it just was a combination of all my mentioned above factors that made me drop it.
My loss, I guess.

It's a shame. It is a VERY good series. episode one was good, episode 2 was great, i am about to watch episode 3 right now. You should really try it again.

Loving this series so far, havenīt seen the 3rd episode but going to watch it today.
I love the battles (particularly brutal animation on it, Cassehern is extremely vicious, seems heīs disemboweling the robots) the visual animation and the post-apocalyptic world itīs setting (Madhouse has done it again!!!!) and love the themes and the characterization of the characters. Without a doubt one of the best animes of the year (although i havenīt saw that many of them either ehehehe).
