Allow me to preface this by saying that I find the concept of reviewing anime to be laughable. If you do not like the anime by the summary enough to pick it up, chances are a person will not be able to sell the idea to you. Furthermore, there is always the 1/4 rule, where you watch the first quarter of an anime before deciding to drop it.

The fact that I am making a review is a testament to how much this show caught my interest and became one of my favorite shows of the year.

This show has often been accused of being 'generic,' while read more

Argevollen isn't as bad as people made it out to be after the first episodes rolled out. It was a rare and appealing experience to a military history fan in that the plot structure is often focused around the political and military dynamics of the conflict. Unlike in a lot of other anime, we're simultaneously privy to the strategic momentum of the war from both sides' perspectives, their internal divisions and agendas, as well as progress on the field involving a whole array of tactics and plans. This means that there's more to it than a screaming protagonist smashing bad guys. Unfortunately he just has read more

It doesn’t take a genius to understand Argevollen. First thought that comes to mind is a generic mecha show with warfare and military concepts adapted into a struggle between nations in a world of dominance. The first episode doesn’t stride far from that as we learn the current state of affairs between the two nations – Arandas and Ingelmia. During on brief struggle, we find out that the main protagonist of the series, a young man from Arandas’ 8th unit named Tokimune Susumu is able to pilot a mysterious mecha suit. It’s known as the Argevollen and its potentials can change the course of this read more

Some notable complaints about this show in other reviews are: it's one dimensional characters, paper thin story, lack of character development, by numbers, mediocre, run of the mill. You get the ideal. All these issues do exist and I'm aware of them. So by now you're wondering about the nine. It's because I DON'T CARE! This is exactly what I want! Hot mech on mech action without whiny teenagers! Following the curved line to the hot mech on mech action! First of all, the enemy is other humans, not monsters, or robots, or aliens, or demons, or lucifer hawks etc. but other people piloting the read more

Argevollen. Honestly this show just made me sad. I absolutely loved it, the neat little combinations of military slice-of-life were well done and entertaining to watch. The numerous characters all had excellent proportions of screen time and were simply enjoyable to see how they interacted. The various emotions caused by war, fear and love were very well portrayed throughout the show in my opinion.

Of course the art was incredible, and the fight scenes were very fun to watch, especially the Arge/Strum duels.

And then the anime made a fatal mistake.

The clincher, the reason this show wasn't a very fun 8/10 mecha anime (or possibly read more
