Before I begin this review, it needs to be noted that I got into this show because of the opening which is in my opinion the best opening in an anime ever.

Story: While the plot of the show is a good one, the biggest flaw in this show is jumping around in the plot, it leaves you to guess what is going on most of the time, for example missing a key part of a fight, or a new power introduced.

Art: Being the background is just white with snow most of the time the foreground and characters look very good, while a little lazy it read more

Overman King Gainer can be called a "Happy Tomino" show, meaning that it falls in the same line as L-Gaim, ZZ Gundam and Xabungle rather than his more depressing works like Victory Gundam, The Ideon and Zeta Gundam.

It's also really good fun. The plot doesn't make a great deal of sense but you are OK with this really because it may as well be a series of exciting mecha fights interspersed with comedy moments. There's an overarching arc about a world-destroying monster robot but really it's quite slight and the focus is instead on the awkward main character growing up and becoming a man by read more

Overman King Gainer is the lesser-known TV anime Yoshiyuki Tomino created and directed between the acclaimed Turn A Gundam and the infamous Reconguista in G.

You could view this as it being less ambitious, which is true to a certain extent, but the average viewer is likely to find greater enjoyment in King Gainer. If you are a fan of either of the two works I mentioned, Tomino in general, or just a lover of read more

Non-stop nonsense

It looked pretty cool from a few clips i had seen from it, so i decided to sit down and watch it. But I couldn't even get past the third episode before i almost had a headache from confusion. First of all, the pacing is just ABSURD, it's a full 26 episode season, but things go so fast it's half a season worth of story in the first two episodes, and it just throws new names and concepts at you without explanation. What is a "bachclone" or "exodus" or "five wise men".

Characters don't act like characters. It feels like an alien wrote how the read more
