The series is set in a near-future world where the boundary between human being and AI is vague. A rapid biological evolution, similar to "Cambrian Explosion," is caused by one incident. This incident turns into the genesis of a new jostle for supremacy, and the influence of the evolution goes beyond biological framework and spreads to various kinds of materials and technologies. The era of massive evolution involving diverse existences, such as human, machines, and biotechnologies, is coming. Characters fight an existential war in such a world.

I've always had a soft spot for shows where some nerdy guy suddenly becomes an action hero. So once again here I am, writing a review for a show that I really liked and almost nobody watched.

Story - This is a show about a genius scientist and his pals fighting monsters and bad guys with crazy science powers. However, there is also a plot that is actually pretty interesting, and it does sort of manage to work in the backstories and motivations of our 3 main heroes: Leon, Quinny, and Doug.

Art - I think the most memorable quality of the art is how colorful it read more

Shoji Kawamori, the creator of the much beloved Macross series of the 80s and 90s, has created another flick to his name, the latest project called Juushinki Pandora, an omage to his works of past of the sci-fi-mecha genre which as of late, has seen much flack due to the many issues with his directorial work.

Oh...how the mighty have fallen. To be fair, the honest takeaway is Shoji Kawamori's mech designs which still look good...at the expense of other areas of the show that quite honestly, isn't a good sales-pitch anymore going forward.

Juushinki Pandora is set in an alternate universe where human beings and AI, read more

All right, Satelight, no, Kawamori-san, let's review.

The production gods haven't been kind to your shows of late. Sure, I enjoyed Akagami no Shirayuki-hime, but you had nothing to do with that, did you?

First Aquarion Logos, which probably should never have been given the Aquarion title since you decided to abandon two series' worth of lore and screw around with kanji. I know, it's fun, but I'd rather have watched "Chihayafuru but in the calligraphy club" than that mess you called Aquarion.

Then Macross Delta, which was supposed to be about... what, exactly? There were countless opportunities to connect with the audience (or more specifically, me), and read more

In the year 2031, geeky main character screws up the world and created intelligent machine creatures of rapid evolution! How's that for a hook?

Kawamori's latest directorial sci-fi creates a mystery amidst a "war" against an enemy of the state, and the beasts created by our main character, Leon Lau. Already, there is a sense of surprise and sympathy for the main, who receives the end of a batting stick because his beloved technology put mankind in a big crisis - The Neo Xianlong Crisis.

It's "surprising" because it's amazing how much he screwed up, and the B.R.A.I are amazing. The series doesn't start off at read more
