__________________________________________

This is a pretty boy anime, mainly geared towards female viewers. Think man love and rose scenes. I swear if you look at it without sound, you'd think that some characters on screen were girls, beautiful girls at that, with the personality to match. On another note this anime features some nice if not beautiful aircrafts, which have some nice bird like maneuvers. It has a WWII theme going for it when it comes to ships and armored vehicles, which I like. But than again it also has knights with guns that shoot lasers type beams, which seems a bit out of place. High-tech and Low-tech I guess.

Unfortunately I won't be following this anime anymore, well I might give ep 2 and 3 a try, but I always stay away form pretty boy anime, its just not my thing. It is a perfectly fine A-class anime though, fluent and nice animation, good voice actors, but it's just not the anime for me.

hmm I have mixed feelings about this. On one hand the setting, and the artwork are really cool, on the other hand you have borderline yaoi bishonen show, with virtually no women present ( as main chars ).

any thoughts on this?

Can't be as gay/yaoi as Destiny was. That's for damn sure. But there's a big difference between a show that has implied boy love (Cluster, apparently) and one that actually is yaoi (Loveless). It's a Sunrise show, so it'll probably at least have a good story. I don't plan on watching it until I can get commentary on it besides "it looks like a yaoi show"

I'm surprised how much Cluster Edge resembles Meine Liebe. So far, each episode has been about a different male lead (just like the first handful of Meine Liebe episodes). Plus, there are practically no girls present in both. And there are fencing matches. Cluster Edge seems more modern, though, and I have faith in Sunrise to make the story great, and not throw in some plot as the series nears the end (like Bee Train did with Meine Liebe). I like the ED. It reminds me of Mai-HiME's first ED.

Hmm, doesn't seem too bad. The shounen-ai aspects are not excessively ostensible and the animation and steam punk setting are good. VERY feminine males though... And it is somewhat amusing how women in shounen-ai are always just background fittings, like scene props :D

Worth testing a few more eps to see if the story grows interesting enough and no puke factor manifests.

i think we need to find some women who love the shonen-ai series and their bishis to watch this so we can get better comments on it ^^_.
