No spoilers here, just thoughts for y'all to skim through if you are curious about watching this: This anime not something that'll blow you out of the water good; but it is fairly enjoyable casually. The plot was fairly predictable for the most part, but I liked the dark twist and direction the anime went in the final few episodes. If I had to describe the vibes I got from this show: I personal would say it's a mix of Darling in the Franxx and Azur Lane. Darling in the Franxx is definitely the most popular comparison to this anime. The main female chracter is like a shy and quieter version of Zero Two - from their shared pink hair and "created by man to save humanity" speal, and the plot being centered around the protagonist riding in a war machine with his female partner to fight alien creatures with advanced technology. Azur Lane is the less popular yet arguably closer comparison you could make to this show though. Between the "anima" that are connected with their fighter planes, the alien threat factor and a noticably very similar storyline (in regards to the Azur Lane anime), I feel like this one rings the most similar bells, even in comparison to Darling in the Franxx. I don't get how this anime isn't classifed as a harem tho. The MC is literally surrounded by a cast of almost all girls - with 3 of which having a romantic interest in him. It genuniely felt like they were trying to turn it into a harem after the halfway point, and looking at the other reviews I'm pretty sure everyone else got that feeling too. It's wasn't necessarily bad, but I think that this anime is definitely on the cusp of deserving a harem tag. Overall I did enjoy it, and would reccomend it if all you want is a casual, science fiction action anime with a romantic harem touch and albeit predictable but decent plot. If it at some point does get another season I wouldn't mind and will certainly give it a watch.
That was a good anime. Nothing to say about animation and sounds. The story was quite complete for a 12 episodes anime, but for me, viper 0 hasn't been very accentuated. I mean we only saw her 2 times, and for minor things. Guess she deserves more importance. The others animas have all their own personality and I liked it, because it shows the quality of the anime. Create a harem would be easier, but they did a really good job on the hard way. But I don't understand something, which is the real role of Kei. I know he protect gripen for mental breakdown, but that's all. And the problem of the "thinking capacity" between animas ans humans, that humans can't be as good as Animas because they're too slow compared to them, did nothing. During all the anime, Kei can shoot all the airplanes as simply as if he was an anima, but he's not. So his he an Anima ? I don't think so ? A genetically reprogrammed human ? Maybe. but in general, it was a good anime.
