Very promising initial work from new studio TriF, I felt like I had traveled back to the days of the more experimental ovas and specials that appeared in the wake of Gainax rocking the industry, or one of the better young animator training project short films.

In a time where passion projects like FLCL and Gunbuster are being dragged out of their well earned rests as soulless husks who don’t have a creative bone in their bodies, Mecha-ude is a breath of fresh air. A new studio with mostly new staff, a new IP that while not incredibly innovative offers a new idea on some read more

Don't under estimate this series from it's cliche synopsis. Yes it follows a lot of the cliche of Shonen but it does so with effort and love.

Many bad shonen follow the cliche's of Shonen like marking off points on a checklist. These series fail not becase they followed the tropes of Shonen. But because they did so without understanding them. They were just made by companies who looked at what was popular and said "we can do that".

Mecha-ude is nothing like that. It uses the cliche's of Shonen unashamably because the makers clearly love classic shonen and wanted to make their own. The episode read more

A promising anime. Overall Rating: 7.8/10

Story - 9/10: The story takes place in a world where robots and humans co-exist. Since it has only one episode, dwelling deeply with the characters is impossible, which is not necessarily a bad thing given the time constrict. Overall it’s an anime with a lot of potential and hoping for an entire 12 to 24 episodes in the near future.

Art - 8/10: Great animation. Art style goes rough from time to time but I wouldn’t call it bad. In fact, it adds to the overall feel of the anime.

Sound - 7/10: Nothing to criticize about. The ending song read more

Anyone remember Generator Rex from Cartoon Network? Well, this is the anime version with less monsters and more Rex's.

1. Originality: 7
As I said, the show looks pretty much like a pre-existing American one, but that doesn't mean that it's bad.
The idea of ​​users using mechanical arms to fight each other doesn't sound new, it's even like a mini mecha. But that's why I consider that it's not a complete copy or something totally unoriginal, because the mecha genre is already saturated enough, so small changes like this are quite remarkable.

2. Story Development: 7.5
Obviously, you can't expect much from an OVA in this category.
That's why the read more
