This show has great production value and it comes across they the creators are dedicated and proud of their work.

The art is clean and very realistic, especially for the characters. As for the designs of the mechs... eh, they are not the norm and you really need to look at them with an open mind ha ha. The animation is also very good but don't expect highly choreographed mech-on-mech fight scenes because it's not really that type of show. Most of the battles are handled by light beams and expanding energy auras, probably done partly for the story and partly to save cost.

Mixed Feelings
The story is kind of interesting, but a little too "Go to this place, now go to other place" for me. There are also elements of the plot that are part of one episode and then never really capitalized/built on, but perhaps that's in hopes for a second season? There were some good moments, but it was just kind of eh. 6/10

The art wasn't very good. I strongly dislike the overuse of cg, especially when it's bad. So when I see cg mech with the MCs lifeless unmoving cg models riding it, I want to die. There really isn't any excuse for such poor cg. ...

.::The premise::.
The set up is actually pretty neat. A world under the threat of some monsters called earless fought back by some famous dudes called players based on actual musicians fighting on their mechas which are actually their amps. Episode 1 starts with the Echo finding a mysterious girl (Myuu or µ) which is an unknown player and also she doesn't have any memory. Now Echo has to travel the world trying to know who she really else all while they meet up with other players.

Sadly, it just doesn't deliver what you might expect as the music undertone is severely missing almost in every aspect.

Echo ...
