I really wanted this show to work. At the time of me watching this, I had yet to see someone try to make a mech show that has a female lead. That was the primary reason for me to watch this show. Within the first four minutes, I was interested. Tokyo Tower getting destroyed (as usual) and some psycho chick in a robot is about to kill some other chick in a robot. I got a bit confused as I was watching the show the first time. I ended up watching the show again just to see if I missed something and to do read more

This is one of the most truly insane shows I have seen in my short anime watching career. I enjoyed the hell out of it in much the same way that one enjoys a low budget action movie from the 80s. Turn your brain off and strap in for the ride. Needless to say, this is not going to be a show for everyone, and it's flawed enough that I can't honestly recommend it, but if you go in with the expectation that you're watching something ridiculous rather than something aspiring to be high art, it'll be an entertaining experience.

I finally pulled this off "the Stack" about a week ago. I won't say how long I've had it but I've moved twice since 2015 and it made at least one of those trips. Yeah, it had some dust on the wrapper.

But I finally watched it, so how was it? Well as mecha shows go it's no After Colony era Gundam, but I rank it slightly above Burst Angel. It did have a lot to cram into thirteen episodes, including characters, and if it were longer they had some other directions they could've run with. This could have helped to read more

Mecha shows with female leads aren't really that common (the other one I've watched is Rinne no Lagrange. Not sure if Kannazuki no Miko counts considering the one who piloted most of the time was the guy character) so I decided to give Jinik: Extend a shot. That and it's OP is a reference to the OP of Mobile Suit Gundam. Really. View Jinki Extend's OP, then MSG's. You'll see.

Jinki Extend would have worked better as a longer anime, or one with two seasons. there are two storylines- one starring Aoba, and the other one starring Akao. Chronologically, Aoba's arc occurs before Akao's, but the read more
