High school girls fighting aliensPosted
Genre: Action, Comedy, Mechs, Drama Length: 12 episodes. "Madoka Kyono is an energetic girl who is full of passion. As the proud, and only, member of the Kamogawa Girls' High School Jersey Club, she goes around helping people in need. But Madoka's life is turned upside down when she is suddenly asked by a mysterious girl named Lan to pilot a robot. Motivated by her desire to protect the people and city of Kamogawa, Madoka agrees to pilot the resurrected Vox robot to fight against extraterrestrials that have come to attack Earth." First things first, they need to get rid of the MA rating on this one. There's very brief backside nudity shown, and a random curse word thrown in, but there's almost zero blood and no deaths are shown. Mature rating just doesn't fit this one. Alrighty, I was a little mixed about this series. Straight from the first episode, I was drawn in by the amazing graphics. Lagrange obviously had a very large production budget to work with. Tons of CG rendering that blend in incredibly well with the animation. It felt very similar to Infinite Stratos. The great graphics keep you watching where the plot tends to leave holes. The story isn't half bad when it gets more involved and you find out more about the aliens. There is a lot that isn't answered in this volume, though. Season 2 finished airing in Japan about 10 months ago, so we probably won't see part 2 here in North America for another 6-9 months. Going to assume that the 2nd season helps solve some of the mysteries. The characters were pretty enjoyable. Only one that I didn't like, and you can tell that they're building him up to be a bad guy without revealing his motives while he helps Earth. Madoka is perpetually cheerful and always looking for the positive no matter what the situation. Lan is pretty introverted but will do everything she can for those she considers friends. And Muginami is a bit of an odd-ball. The typical *oppai* character that gets all of the stares from guys. You're never sure if she's friend or foe. Watched the series in about 3 days and enjoyed it for the most part. The abundant holes in the story made me a little annoyed, but I guess I'll have to wait for part 2 for that to be rectified. It's a worthwhile watch.
I would recommend this to a friend
