Mobile Suit Gundam-san

I am happy that this is only an anime short. Can you imagine watching this for twenty minutes in a row? My god… The human mind is way too fragile for that. I wonder how many die-hard Gundam fanatics were pissed off when they watched the first episode.

Mobile Suit Gundam-sanIt’s an anime short, which means that the artwork isn’t really even worth mentioning. There are exceptions from time to time, but this isn’t one of those times. I want to cry.

They say that it’s a funny Gundam parody. Is it? Is it really funny? Is it? Maybe I grew cold during these past few years, because I couldn’t even crack a single smile. This was really rough on my eyes.

Sorry, but I respect the Gundam series way too much than to recommend this to someone. This just isn’t worth my time, even if it’s only two minutes worth of visual poison. I would rather watch one of the many gay anime this season.

Plot Summary: There is no plot whatsoever.

Aldnoah.Zero

Another mech anime I see… Don’t you find it rather disappointing that all of these mechs are made so that they resemble the human body? Why? Why make not make something that’s war-efficient? Like a rectangle mech with loads of cannons, thick armour and dozens of lasers that will turn everything in a 2 mile radius into Swiss cheese.

Aldnoah.ZeroAnyway, I may be bashing the way the mechs look right now, but even I must admit that I enjoyed the first episode. It looks quite nice and it’s definitely detailed. I have very little complaints about the artwork.

I’ll watch the second episode. The artwork is good and the story intrigued so much that I really want to see what happens next. Who doesn’t like a story about all-out war between humans from space and humans from earth?

Action and mecha fans will undoubtedly love this stuff. Why wouldn’t they? I’m not a huge mecha fan and even I enjoyed watching the first episode. That’s why I suggest that you give the first episode a chance and see for yourself.

Plot Summary: In 1972, the Apollo 17 mission discovered a hypergate to Mars on the surface of the moon. Soon a war breaks out between Earth and Mars, and Martian soldiers begin to descend from the sky, riding steel giants, intent on exterminating humanity.

Shirogane no Ishi: Argevollen

I really liked what I saw here. It’s too bad that the end kind of ruined it for me, but it was amusing nonetheless. It’s by no means one of the best mecha-genre anime that I’ve seen, but it’s still worth watching.

Shirogane no Ishi ArgevollenThe artwork is pretty nice. I especially liked the mechs. They looked kind of old and weren’t made to look exactly like the human body. They looked as though they could actually be built for real. Of course, that shred of excitement disappeared when that mysterious mech surfaced.

The story is such a cliché. It’s been done to death. A boy fights the enemy in an old mech and loses, only to come across a super modern mech that will turn things around. They are going to have to be very original from this point forward for me to keep watching.

Do I recommend it? I honestly can’t. It’s all but original. The latest mech kind of ruined things for me and I honestly don’t like the way things are going right now. I’ll have to wait until the second episode before I actually decide to drop this or not, but I certainly don’t think it’s good enough right now to recommend.

Plot Summary: The Kingdom of Arandas Alliance and the Countries Unification of Ingelmia have been at war for many years. The situation has been at a stalemate across the fortress of the Great Wall, which has never been penetrated since the foundation of Arandas. The gate to the fortress has remained firmly closed, but when it creaks open, the complexity of war starts to change dramatically.

M3: Sono Kuroki Hagane

I really didn’t want to write about this one today, then again… I can’t keep putting it off forever. I need to complete my collection, duh. I saw that this piece got rated between a six and a seven on various websites… Pretty darn generous for such an uninteresting show…

M3 Sono Kuroki HaganeThe artwork is so-so. It’s not all that impressive and I the mechs, especially their most important weapon, looks rather stupid and plain. I say this because the way they use that spear or lance (or whatever the hell it is) is just too damn lame and certainly not very efficient.

The story is just a huge let-down. I just don’t find it interesting at all. I saw the first two episodes and I’m already thinking about giving up. It’s not at all exciting and it gradually becomes annoying to even watch to the end.

Do I recommend this? Not really. I did not really enjoy the first two episodes and I certainly can’t imagine why people would give this a seven.

Plot Summary: There is distorted, deep blackness everywhere. That place, in which blackness swallowed everything and took away everything, has become known as the Avidya Zone. Strange beings assume the very form of the despair and chaos of humanity. They are known by this name: Imashime.

An expedition surveys the Avidya Zone which consumes human spirits. So, in the intricate intersection between the present in impending crisis and the destiny of the past… can eight boys and girls, assembled to confront the Imashime, find the bright future that lies before the Avidya Zone?

Break Blade

I wonder why sub groups don’t seem all that interested in Break Blade the series… They’re pretty good, aren’t they? I’ve seen all the movies and thought they were rather good. It’s too bad that this seems to be some kind of a reboot? I’ve pretty much already seen this? I’m not very impressed so far…

Break BladeThe artwork is good. I expect nothing less from Break Blade. The characters look good, the mechs are awesome and the details get two thumbs up. It’s definitely a nice watch.

I always kind of disliked the name “Break Blade”. They should’ve just named it “Broken Blade”, which is what they call Rygart’s mech. It’s too bad that there’s no unique story here. It’s all basically from the movies from what I’ve seen so far.

Break Blade fans will enjoy this, probably. I might not be as big a fan as they are, because I found it rather disappointing that there’s no original story. Haven’t seen any of the Break Blade movies yet? Go and try this out.

Plot Summary: In the continent of Cruzon, an impending war between the Kingdom of Krisna and the nation of Athens is brimming. The people of this land are able to use quartz for whatever purpose they desire. Yet one person, Rygart Arrow, is not. He is an “un-sorcerer,” a person unable to use quartz. But this characteristic will enable him to pilot an ancient Golem, one strong enough to put up a fight against the invading army of Athens.
