Synopsis

In a post-apocalyptic world overrun with mutated beasts called Limbeekoon or Filth Monsters, humanity is forced to live in large mobile cities called Regios and learn to use special weapons called Dite, by harnessing the power of Kei to defend themselves. In the Academy City of Zuellni, Layfon Alseif is hoping to start a new life and forget his past. However, his past has caught the attention of Karian Loss, the manipulative Student Council President and Nina Antalk, a Military Arts student and Captain of the 17th Military Arts Platoon, who instantly recognizes his abilities and decides he’s the perfect candidate to join her group. However, with a secret past that won’t leave him alone and unknown powers beyond normal, Layfon just might not take it.

Chrome Shelled Regios is one of those animes that I watched without real interest. The art is good, animation is fluid, this point is ok.

The main thing I disliked about it, was that it was too centered around the main character. Layfon is strong, Layfon appears when others are in danger, Layfon beats everyone. Close to every women character are blushing when seeing him, even if there is no romance. Even the cold one ends up being all over the hero. The other characters feel like they were added just to have some kind of background but there's no real work on them.

Post apocalyptic worlds in anime are a bit of a strange area to visit as you're never quite sure what you'll find. It could be a world of amnesiacs, a princess who loves to fly, a lone warrior searching for his lost love, an outcast hunting his own kind, a boy from another world trying to stop a warmongering dictator, or something else entirely.

Imagine my surprise then, to find a high school.

That's right. Here at the end of the world the best that some bright spark could come up with was another high school. That said, Koukaku no Regios (Chrome Shelled Regios), does use read more

Recommendations

Both in "Chrome Shelled Regios" and in "Densetsu no yuusha no densetsu", the hero is a boy, who, in the beginning, is trying to hide his past and exceptional abilities (tenken-user, alpha stigma) playing the dumb, pretending to be unintrested, slow and unskilled. Other similarities seem to be the fantastic setting, the presence of the fantastic itself (the mysterious regious and their spirits and monsters the student-soldiers are fighting against, magic), organizations of selected fighters (tenken-users, orphanage training soldier-magicians) and smaller groups of friends of the hero who are operating together, and finally (there might be more, but I will just leave it at that for now), a strong leader among the student of the academy themselves (Loss, Shion). The latter series has aired only 2 episodes yet, so I cannot really tell, but I suppose that if you like one, you might like (or at least check out) the other. ^^
Both starts with a similar futuristic-fantasy setting with a military academy training students with special combat abilities.
