Is the same guy who did the UzaMaid subs behind this? The animation had a touch of QUALITY to it too and the exposition is pretty clumsy. The CG I thought was acceptable and the designs are pretty good in that silly anime sci-fi kind of way but so far they haven't hooked me. I give it 2 more episodes.

I would gladly die in a space war if my ruler was this moe and exposed her back and armpits so shamelessly though.

Its an anime original so I will give it more of a chance, but there was nothing in the first episode to keep my interest. I thought the CG mech fights were decent, but the overall animation quality was very low. Looked cheap to make, especially for a first episode. The writing was bad, the sound design was unimpressive.

I am curious to see if they keep a lighter tone or if it will shift gears into some edgy horrors of war stuff. Also curious to see the other girl from the ED, presumably from the Empire side of things. With it only being a 1 cour, there isn't much chance for a decent story, especially if it is split across 2 sides, but we will see what happens.

The CGI mechs were average looking. What they did have was wonderful direction and choreography.

Is my taste irrecoverably shit or was the CG in this first episode passable?

I like how they put all those tones and shaded textures on the 3D mecha, combined with a somehow decently implemented limited framerate it looked much better than the usual Ajin style approach of untextured 6-24 fps unity store asset trash in front of hand drawn BGs to make the CG look even worse than it already is.

Would it be possible to somewhat recreate classic 5-tone shading at a reasonable budget with CG?

First I wanted to write something in the OP about how the mechs are surprisingly nice. I couldn't find a single frame where they weren't at least passable.

I hope they didn't spend 80% of their budget on the CG, the hand drawn animation wasn't exactly stellar.

I was pretty misled by the description though,

They're both on the same planet, just in two different factions. It was probably meant to say "on a distant planet". This way I thought it was going to either be interplanetary combat or more likely, some wormhole shenanigans.

I thought that it was pretty well done. He got a whole metal shard into his stomache and was probably just high on adrenaline like video related on top of being a young kid.

I also enjoy the tactics and combat too, it's not just about jamming robots against each other. For an anime original this might be a good ride.

I started smelling a rat. Literally shouting 気合いと根性 was kind of goofy but I expected it to be the kind of thing this sort of show would do unironically, but considering how often he did it it started to get suspect.

Still, there's a bit too much space politics and that's a pill that takes way more presentation than this for me to swallow. I'm going to give it one more episode purely out of respect for the balls to pull that twist and loli princess' 10/10 screech at the end, but I still haven't found anything to latch onto on this ride.

So they couldn't afford to pay Kirito for a whole season, so they killed him off in the second episode. Sasuga Director-sama.

Why did they handle the death so weirdly? Like the girl saves him after he blows up the explosives and they exchange some banter and he even says he is going to surpass his father's legacy, not something you expect to hear from someone dying. All the tension in the scene is relieved. Hard cut to loli princess going to see him now. Whoops sorry he just died. It just felt really weird how they did that.

Some of my brain cells died reading that.

>Why did they handle the death so weirdly?

It was a bit of a bait and switch. But when given some thought wasn't so weird. After they lost the skirmish they had to survive a five day siege, as they point out in the episode. Joshua was also very young at 15/16 which really doesn't make help your chances of surviving grave injuries. From his condition you can deduce that shard jammed deep in his stomach caused a lot of internal damage and that he lost a lot of blood in the process due to how gray he looks.

The ship looking that beat up after the siege suggests it was not easy to return to the capital and they probably did not have enough medical supplies available.

If you ask me I would not say this development was out of the blue or some asspull.

I thought it was a pretty decent bait and switch. I was expecting him to die as soon as the episode opens with his backstory, but then when he talked about how he didn't quite manage to die I figured he was safe for now so it still managed to catch me off guard.

This show's got some good ideas, I like how the Order was keeping the war secret from the princess and are basically using her as a figurehead, and I respect the balls on the writers to kill off the male lead two episodes in, but so far the presentation's a bit bland. Everything looks overdesigned and the direction isn't anything special, even Joshua's death didn't have much punch outside of the initial shock because he was such a bland character. I'm still interested to see where it goes, and I hope it picks up now that they've introduced the second MC.
