Score 5/10

Here is a tip for all you scriptwriter wannabes out there: IT’S NOT THAT EASY! Aquarion was basically trying to be a more light Neon Genesis, with a lot less seriousness and a lot more fan service. And it failed big time for not doing much with its own potencial other than making fun...
