Giant Robo

Jan 27, 2023

This OVA is definitely not as good as people are making it out to be. The plot is overly convoluted and the story only starts to make sense towards the very end. During the whole series, you barely understand what is going on and why the characters are doing what they are doing. Not only that, throughout the series it is palpable the self-insert opinions bias about climate from the team, I even checked if Miyazaki was part of the team, fortunately he is not. To make matters even worse, you have a specific scene that is repeated ad infinitum throughout the story, again and again, and then again but with a different perspective and then again just for the hell of it. I mean, why not?

 The animation is the biggest selling point about this OVA, unfortunately it was wasted on character designs that are too simple (that is forgivable because it is the original way they were drawn), but not only that, they decided to use only two colors for the characters, a base color and another for the shadows, which completely detracts from the quality of the animation, very bad decision. There are a lot of characters, but you just don't care about every single one of them at all, even though some are cooler than others (like Murasame), you just can't create a connection with them because the story is so bad. The main character is a generic crybaby that is wrong about everything (and that is not my opinion only, all the characters agree with me) but since he is the main character and he has a huge overpowered robo, then well, I guess he is right. All in all, if you read the original manga, you will see that this OVA is a huge bastardization of it, a huge mess with characters that are not even part of the original manga and characters that were completely changed for the worse, all put together in a half-assed story. All in all, I would barely feel like recommending this OVA, but the animation is good and you may like the story, but trust me, you won't have fun watching it, at all.
