Characters & Voice Actors
The first episode of the show is, by far, the most entertaining episode. It shows you a lot of promising things, but ultimately doesn't deliver. I continued watching the show because it's certainly not bad, but it's not engaging either, often failing to hold my attention. The show feels like it's lacking life. The art style is fairly unique, but could be a turn-off for some. I personally found the CG action to be one of the most well-done things about it, but it fails to excel in nearly every other aspect. The story is uninspired; the MC gains powers, then gets targeted by a group of bad guys because he has those powers. That's where all of the conflict centers. It's the kind of simple story that would work in a show like this if it had an interesting cast of characters to support it. Each character has something unique about them, but those unique traits are rarely explored and never grow. The character relationships and interactions are very shallow, never giving you enough to truly feel invested in them. Because a show like this needs well-developed characters, I think that's probably what holds it back the most.
Like I said, it's not a bad show by any means, but there are definitely better things you could be spending your time watching instead. Somebody already recommended Gatchaman Crowds in the list of similar shows, so if you want to watch an anime with a sentai kind of vibe, I definitely recommend that one before you touch this. Samurai Flamenco would also be way more worth your time. But, if you have a lot of spare time on your hands, you won't suffer for watching this one. It's harmless. read more

The same action and attire art, except one faces a group of enemies, while the other were only up against one enemy.
The character designs for both series are very similar. Even the mech suits have a similar feeling too. Majin Bone is basically Gaist Crusher turned High School instead of Middle School. Elemental powers such as Fire, Wind, Earth, and Ice etc are here. The main characters look exactly the same.
