One night, right before summer vacation, Manatsu Daichi, a second-year in high school, sees a weird round rainbow floating in the sky above Tanegashima and ventures there alone. He has seen this rainbow before. With the memories of his father's mysterious death and an encounter of a strange boy and girl, Daiji arrives on the island while the alarm of a building labeled Earth Engine is going off. Someone asks him if he is a captain, just as robotic intruders from Uranus called Kill-T-Gang arrive. The battle around the shining stars is about to begin.

People attempt to take this show too seriously. It's just another mecha show with some goofy characters mixed in and some twists and turns along the way. I enjoyed the series, the characters were well written, unlike many shows they weren't afraid to throw in a little fan service, and it kept a good pace. A lot of people will be quick to condem it because of the fan service, but I say if you don't like it than there's literally a million similar shows out there you can watch devoid of the ecchiness. Shows like this one and Infinite Stratos are becoming ...

Mixed Feelings
I don't care what my average episode rating was (not that I was rating episodes waaaaaaaay back when I started watching this show…three years ago). Captain Earth is just meh.

The pacing is screwy. Almost every episode has at least one head-scratcher. There's wasted potential all over the place. But instead of using its potential, the show screwed around with teen angst and spent a ton of time showing mechs "expanding" in an overly complicated space-based linear assembly line…because what we need in mecha anime is definitely mechs that don't make sense.

Feels like I can't write a review without tripping over plot holes every five words. ...

Let me start this review by saying that it's been a while since I wrote a review for MyAnimeList. I haven't binge-watched anime so I decided to watch Captain Earth by simple curiosity. It was a Sunday night and I had nothing to do, so Captain Earth seemed like a good way to alleviate my boredom with. To be honest, I started watching it with no expectations at all, but perhaps I should have expected something positive considering the talent involved here. Also, despite the title, this show has nothing to do with Captain Planet. Anyway, let's see what this anime has in store for ...

Hit Anime Studios and Their Biggest Disappointments

We know Madhouse for Death Note and One Punch Man, Kyoto Animation for Haruhi Suzumiya and Clannad, and Studio Ghibli for basically everything they make. But what about their flops? Their biggest disappointments? Who remembers these clangers?
