Synopsis

One night, right before summer vacation, Manatsu Daichi, a second-year in high school, sees a weird round rainbow floating in the sky above Tanegashima and ventures there alone. He has seen this rainbow before. With the memories of his father's mysterious death and an encounter of a strange boy and girl, Daiji arrives on the island while the alarm of a building labelled Earth Engine is going off. Someone asks him if he is a captain, just as robotic intruders from Uranus called Kill-T-Gang arrive. The battle around the shining stars is about to begin.

Captain Earth Mid-Season Review

This was undoubtedly THE show I was most hyped for. The PVs were some of the best I have seen in quite some time and I was ready for a fantastic mech series. To be straightforward, this show has not even remotely lived up to my hype. However, I have still enjoyed the show and believe it is a quality mech anime worth watching.

Story 6:
The beginning of Captain Earth is like just about every other mech. Kid wildly ends up in a mech and is tasked with saving the world. The world of Captain Earth is truly interesting, although the explanations for read more

(NOT A TRUE REVIEW; THIS IS MY IMPRESSION OF THE SERIES THROUGH 15 EPISODES. IT WILL BE EDITED OR DELETED WHEN APPROPRIATE)

You can have all the budget and production value that you want, but NOTHING makes up for incoherent and nonsensical story-telling. This well-understood fact has never been more evident in the anime industry then in this season's harrowing mecha series known as Captain Earth. Studio Bones sure as hell knows how to animate, but they are developing a reputation for writing convoluted and nonsensical plots that make no sense what so ever, and this anime is no exception.

Recommendations

both series are made by the same studio, it has orchestra music and it has mecha/robot action, while star driver setting is mainly on school, captain earth setting is mainly on military base
reportRecommended by j0x - Add to favorites
Both series feature a male high school student whom stumbles upon a mech, and with this newly discovered power, is expected to help save the world. With the help of an experienced mech-user, they conquer any task given to them, and eventually learn to pilot it for themselves, unlocking all their secrets along the way. In the mix, each series also has a romantic sub-plot and share a similar feel/ atmosphere.
