Well, well, what to make of this anime. It sure is pretty, the animated is good and the CG is nice. Story/Plot seems interesting for now. The mechas look good, I especially like the jet designs, the aerial fights are also good. The characters design is good, ranging from "ok" to "great". I have 2 little problems though, I don't like the main character type. I don't like some of the transformation things.

I'm not able to comment on the music, not yet anyway. The OP should be good.

Besides certain things that annoy me this is visually a very good show.

Sounds interesting. Since it's by Kawamori I'll check it out.

Kawamori for the win Mechas and CG is great in this show. What I really loved was the first scene with the magician, something original funny hehe.

Anyway, I liked the show. It gives off a feel of a cross between Eva and sentai. I agree that the visuals are top notch and the 3d was great. Definately one of the beter shows this season.

Interesting concepts, but a terrible execution.

Agreed @ Aydan.

On a side notice: what's with the Transformers trend recently? Gundam SEED Destiny, Kannazuki no Miko, Sousei no Aquarion... they all have combining/splittable mechas.

Does anyone else think that this show's being 'bad' on purpose? At first, when Silvia's reaction to the unification happened, I laughed because it was so over-the-top gratuitous. But after watching a second episode and laughing even more (especially Silvia's obsession with her brother, the Ubiquitous Bishounen That Must Act As The Hero's Rival...good god, he not only has long hair but also admires roses, complains about 'unsightly' unification and fights by blowing kisses) I can't believe that this degree of absurdity was not actually intended by the creators for humor. (Silvia: "Next week, I will unify with Brother again!")

I'm not really into mecha, but I think this show is a hilarious parody. Long live the cheesiness!

(Alright, I do have to admit that even if this show were being totally serious I'd still watch it because the animation is just too good. I tend to care about visuals much more than story quality.)

I think the show IS attempting to be serious. The pacing is good and I like most of the character designs. Especially the girl in the wheelchair.
