I hate CG, face it, it looks shit, but when done like this, is bearable. The first half of the first episode was so typically clichéd that my brain turned off altogether, and just continued watching for the sake of it.
No, this anime isent bad, its just the theme is so done to death. Even the settings nice, characters interesting, mecha groovy, effort ....... questionable.

Like I said, first half was annoyingly clichéd, however, everything seemed to pick up nicely in the second half when the director decided to get off his ass and mix events and music. I hope it just had a rough start.....although I seriously doubt that to be true.

Yikes, I was hoping Chrono Crusade was decent, but I have heard nothing but crappy opinions the past week. Shame, it had some nice character designs going for it.

That and I dig the whole "Nuns with Guns" thing, just liked I digged the "girls with guns" in Baketsu Tenshi, and Gunslinger Girls, and Noir...and on and on and on, they are all weak. They always fuck it up.

Glad to know I'm not the only one that isn't impressed by flashy CG. I'll give this a try, but I never expect much from Gonzo.

Default eh well, ya

I just got done watching eps. one a second ago, Yeah.. i'm not to big into CG myself.. specially stuff like Platonic Chain and Urda, but this wasnt all bad, kinda reminded me of Knight Saber's... <bubblegum Crisis> with the with the future setting and the fact there woman rideing around in a truck with armor suits, and Aika naked mission wraped into one, fan service and all the guns, i dont know, i'll see where this heads..

Has anyone else noticed that this show IS Daphne in the Brilliant Blue, but with a male main character, mecha instead of ocean craft and much better animation? Even the characters are the same, there's a 'grown up logical boss' one, a 'bitchy' one, a 'silent and violent' one, and a 'cute mecha expert' one.

I don't think the CG is THAT bad either. Not great, but certainly lots better than other previous attempts at having CG mecha in a show, like Divergence EVE. Stellvia was the only one so far that did it really well though IMO.

Eh I thought vandread did cg mecha pretty good too but thats just my opinion..

Anyways for some reason the main character reminded me of the main character in nadesco(gah cant remember his name..). Hes even a cook too =P

Akito. Yeah, that's a good comparison actually. Kinda hapless main character totally out of his element surrounded by military women.

Vandread is a pretty good example too, at least 2nd stage. CG there did work well.
