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.

This is my opinion
Why should one watch this anime?
If ever you want to know what the worst anime will be like then i recommend you watch the show.
well when the show was made the animation was quite average.But when i saw the characters in the show they all lacked emotion in their eyes.The very first thought that came to my mind was "Are these people Zombies".As a result the animation seemed very dull.
The story was really poor.In the anime the characters were often showed watching some television show.This television show was not related to the story and yet it was shown for a duration 4-5 read more

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.

It was inevitable for me to get a little excited to start this series. The hostile post-apocalyptic scenario, the presentation of the premise, its aesthetics and the mystery surrounding it generated expectations just during the first 10 minutes of episode one, expectations that wouldn't be (by far) reached by Chrome Shelled Regios during the rest of the show, as the development of the real plot was quickly replaced for non-contributory, mostly-boring side stories with a coarse harem inbetween.
The turn-off caused by that was comparable to that of our simpleton Layfon who is more accompanied by an insipid crew of females than by revelations about the read more

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

Anime: Densetsu no Yuusha no Densetsu
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  read more

Both starts with a similar futuristic-fantasy setting with a military academy training students with special combat abilities.

Anime: Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei
A boy with exceptional combat skills enrolls in a combat oriented high school to meet his brand new harem, with no initial intention of actually participating in combat. His dreams are shortly crushed by the student council president within the first couple of episodes.

-Chrome Shelled Regios has a far more interesting setting and a more stylized art direction.

-The characters in Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei all look bland, but the dialogue between them tends to be a bit more clever.

-Both have pretty good action sequences.

Anime: Sword Art Online
Ok so this is kind of a stretch because the settings in SAO and CSR are totally different: one being inside a MMORPG and the other a post apocalyptic world with moving cities. However they are very similar in the sense that the main characters between the two are both total badasses. Kirito being a solo player on the front lines who doesnt need any help and Layfon being one of the 7 heavenly blades or whatever in disguise at an ordinary school/city. So basically if you enjoy watching the main male lead go ham and wreck the opponents then both of these shows are  read more
