I've watched the first twenty minutes of Vexille so far and I have to say that I am impressed. The animation is pretty kick-ass with a good mix of cell-shading and 3D CGI. The thing that truly gets me is the story. It seems so western-centric. Japan is the Evil Empire in Vexille. JAPAN! All because they make robots. I find this very interesting. Imagine if an American movie was released wherein the USA is portrayed as a suppressive, evil authority over its citizens lives. Imagine the outcry from certain factions of society! "How could you say such terrible things about America? Why do you hate freedom? Are you a Communist?" I wonder if Vexille got this kind of reaction when it was released in Japan. Something tells me 'no.' This kind of makes me sad.
