"I don't anything with Mecha usually... but this has very Evangelion feel to it with cute characters. It feels... GOOD!"
"Sexy Bushie! Watch it! Must see! Me Like! Yay!!"
"quite enjoyable. i liked the way combat was presented. i wouldn't mind seeing more."
"interesting series. Lots of explosions, giant transforming robots, and characters shrouded in mystery. I would like to see more of the series."
"A Gundam Transformers clone. First episode in the series telling about more back story without actually showing it. I hate that."
"Quite entertaining, the usage of both animation and CG was very good. I liked it very much."
"This looks like a very promising start to a series. I loved the animation, and the story appears like it has alot to offer."
"Best giant robot show I've seen in awhile."
"I really enjoyed this anime and would watch more of it if given a chance."
"Given the good vibes from everyone else, I would say this one bites. Nothing truly *new* in this series that elements from other shows haven trodden on. Giant aliens, transforming giant mecha, lone wolf outsider which ends up 'saving the day.' They cover less background of the 'world' which the characters appear. Usually in that case, most shows make up for drama then ease into background. If this was live action show in North America, it tank in a month from such poor plot and bad acting. Just in anime, such shows work. Good anime, great animation does not translate into a great show. Still I love side B of the opening single more than I like the show."
