LQ is terrible. HQ onry prz.
In my desperate search to find a show I could write about this winter season, I’ve come across this show and decided to give it a “why not?” try.
What the hell is this show about?
Honestly, it was kind of hard to tell what was actually going on in the show based on the first two episodes. So far the story seems to involve giant bugs terrorizing encapsulated colonies in a giant barren wasteland. A guy named Layfon (I think that’s how you spell it?) appears with a couple other guys and starts attacking the giant bug with pretty lights and colors. Anyways, it appears this Layfon guy gets sent to some school in another colony for some reason and he’s apparently bitter about the whole situation and doesn’t want to use his powers anymore. But of course, various situations causes him to reluctantly unleash his hidden talents (didn’t see that coming) which awes the crowd. Layfon gets assigned to a military platoon and stuff goes on from there.
What do I think of the show so far?
Gotta love those random names they come up with for attacks.
Between all the crap that’s going on and the OP sequence, I’m really not sure if this is going to be strictly a school-life thing with a bunch of action going on the side or if there’s actually going to be some major bug squashing going on. I really don’t care either way since the story seems to be a bunch of blah anyways. Seeing as how I consider this show to be one of those mindless action shows you can just enjoy without having to think about much anything, I consider the more action this show has the better. Some people may not like all the flashy lights and overpowered crap going on but it has a fairly nostalgic feeling for me which I somewhat enjoy. Growing up watching shows like Yoroiden Samurai Trooper will do that to you I suppose.
Nina: He’s also mah bitch.
The characters are super generic and I’m pretty sure you can find and exact copy of each one in some other anime. The obvious example is Mr. Layfon a.k.a. Suzaku “Jesus” Yamato. As long as he doesn’t start spitting out morals or goes all emo and crap I can be cool with his character since it’s always fun to watch those scenes where he goes and WTFPWN’s everyone in sight.
Meishen: OMIGOSH! Thanks for saving me!
Layfon: All in a day’s work, babe. That’ll be $12.50 by the way.
There’s also a high harem alert for our lovable main character. This is apparent even in episode one where he gets a farewell kiss from some chick and then he goes to save another one in the next few minutes. Not only that, he has a loli-looking character (she’s actually older than him if I’m not mistaken) and a tough captain lady looking after him as well. Of course, this is far from the main point of the show (or is it?).
Haven’t I seen that pose before somewhere?
Weeeell… I’ll watch it for the mindless action/fighting but as for blogging it? That’s probably yet to be decided. So far, it’s looking like a no go unless I get a fair amount of positive feedback for the show (which I doubt will happen but who knows). So what do you guys think?
