In the future, warfare has been revolutionized by the invention of mechanical weapons called “Objects.” These Objects are overwhelmingly powerful, rendering traditional weapons like guns, tanks and fighter jets completely useless. Qwenthur is an un-athletic, but smart soldier who aims to work as an Object mechanic. Stationed at an Alaskan Object base, he meets Milinda, a stoic but beautiful Elite Soldier who pilots her own Object. As they learn to support each other in battle, Qwenthur begins to uncover the grim secret behind the Heavy Objects.
This anime has a lot of features and ideas! The concept of how war was changed has not necessarily been explored in depth by other shows. While one might state that this is a mecha, it's more of a breed on it's own where in an alternate reality large objects were created. The facinating part of the show would be the revolution behind mechatronixs and how they are used throughout the show. The technical details of how one person can change the tide of battle just by knowing mechanical wisdom is also one of the better aspects of the show.Characters are real and fleshed out. I liked the fact that they split up characters into their technical specialities even bringing in characters that are realistic to job roles, and how the structure would breakdown. It's not like James Bond where one character can do it all. Gwenther is the mechanical aspiring engineering genius that so many other people would want to become. However personally I like Havia more, probably because he's like an opposite. There are aspects of the show where there are definitely spots that are 'filler material" and they are definitely downers. I can see why people would rate certain portions poorly like using cheap material. Some of these complaints are actually valid but do not warrent a 4. The show is extremely fast paced, but the story is fleshed out. They seem to be running for a third season. Which I am unsure how they can keep the story running without either introducing more characters, or enemies? Space seems to be a large portion of the show, and there's a lot of competition between the fictional empires.
This show is underrated. This is a fun mecha-ish anime. If you're browsing for something to watch, I suggest looking into it. The idea behind the show is fantastic, the creation of a new weapon complete changes the view of wars. The setting is after fall of the United Nations the world is split into four relevent nations; the Legitimate Kingdom, the Intelligence Union, the Faith Organization, and the Capital Enterpize. Each nation has its quirks and is continuously at war with the other three nations for territory. A massive weapon know as an "object" was created and changed the view of these wars. If an "object" is destoryed, then the battle has been won. The story unfolds around three characters Milinda Blantini (Princess), Qwenthur Barpotage, and Havia Winchel and their roles in the 37th Consolidation Maneuver Battalion of the Legitimate Kingdom. The story is comprized into a small segment of missions and perfectly organized by the episode titles. The plot and interest unravel depending on which mission. I enjoyed the outstanding methods to destroy "objects" and their relationships to physical and political elements. There isn't much character development, however the characters are enjoyable nontheless. I sympathized with some of the "villains". The animation and sound are beautiful. Heavy Object has similar qualities to the Gundam series, but it takes a more realistic approach. There is violence and a bit of fan service, not recommended for children.
A well defined anime about mechs and war that doesn't take itself too seriously. Well executed, apart from few pacing hiccups. Despite the tendency for each fight to be more over the top than the last one, the show didn't lose its force and managed to produce tension with each episode. It's kinda like McGyver of anime. With some blatant fanservice, but I didn't mind. The main chatacters were pretty well fleshed outs -- you can genuinely feel the friendship between the two main broes of the show. Of course, the canonical density of the MC had to be in place for the fanservice and plot reasons, but the romance is not pivotal to the story. The mechs are. And those a different type of mechs. I think them splendid. Overall, a very enjoyable anime. Would recommend if you're looking for something fun, but not too serious.
