Oh god, what the hell did I watch? This looks a lot like Senki Zesshou Symphogear, and so it’s crap. I’m sorry, I don’t know how to put it any other way. These types of anime are the worst. It’s not that I just don’t like them, oh no. They genuinely suck big time. Idols that sing, fight and pilot mechs on top of all that? No thank you.
The artwork isn’t anything worth mentioning. Sure, it looks pretty nice, I suppose, but what’s with all those ridiculous details? What’s with all those little hearts? I’m serious, they are everywhere. They are in the sky, in the eyes of characters, on clothing, you name…
As for the story goes, well… It sucks. I am truthfully sorry to put it like that. I was pretty interested when I first read about it, I won’t lie about that, but this one truly disappointed me. I generally hate anime where the characters constantly sing. However, this was different. It is supposed to be about war, but instead we have these cute characters with hearts all over the place. Oh, and they sing.
Sigh, don’t even think about it. I absolutely do not recommend it. I truly, truly hated the first episode. Know that I am not the type of person that uses the word “hate” loosely. I seriously think that this anime has very little to offer. Maybe it gets better, but not if I keep seeing those hearts and keep hearing them sing.
Plot Summary: In the beginning of the 21st century, a world war breaks out over interplanetary travel tech. The environment is pretty much destroyed so mankind leaves Earth and starts Star Calendar 00. Entertainment and songs become heavily regulated and eventually banned due to their power to move people, but a brave idol group puts on guerrilla performances in the name of a famous act from earlier times that sang to Earth’s bitter end, AKB48. The illegal revival group’s name is… AKB0048.
