All action, little story. The rod puppet extro at the end seemed lame. Hoping episode two has something of substance. Otherwise this is a disappointment.
Having only seen bits and pieces of the beginning of the game the show is based on, it seems to adhere well to the source material. No skimping on animation frames in this one. Robots are CG, and come off a bit stilted, with too smooth animation compred to the framerate overall. There's a high degree of action. Color palette for backgrounds is rather subdued, with a large use of dust and fog. The show is quite well done on a technical level. It plays the seriousness of the story straight, but I'm not really feeling the drama. The stakes are high, but the sense of danger and sadness feels forced imo. The post-fight talk is much better done though. End of the show has an omake theatre bit with stick puppets, and is quite funny.
The show focused mostly on the specific mission the character were on, which I found disappointing. We dont really get a chance to understand much of the world, we just see the characters fight - and they may as well be cardboard cutouts, since we dont understand much about them aside from how they perform in combat. A first episode is a good chance to hook viewers by giving them something to look forward to next episode, and aside from the hope that we might get some actual world building, I dont see much reason to watch any more.
