The world of Lingalind is surrounded by a mystical wall with seemingly nothing beyond its confines. Worshipped as the mother of the land, the wall delivers celestial gift capsules called "Rakuho'' to locations across the continent. Arriving once a month, the capsules contain metallic armbands that allow the wearer to transform into a mechanical being known as a "Briheight." As a result, Lingalind is thrown into constant turmoil by its warring nations, all hoping to strengthen their military prowess by procuring the offerings for themselves.

One day, a Rakuho crash-lands in the countryside with an unexpected inhabitant—a mysterious black-haired man. All eyes are set on this strange newcomer, who calls himself "Back Arrow," when he claims to have hailed from a place beyond the wall—a revelation that can potentially unravel Lingalind's entire dogmatic foundation.

Alright kids, gather 'round. I'm about to force-feed you some hard truths.

1. Back Arrow is the best anime this season. (well actually that's probably wonder egg but let's ignore that)
2. Back Arrow will be Anime of the Year.
3. You're making a face right now because you're like 14.

Now that your mental markets have been adjusted, let's dig in.

Imagine for a moment, a 24-episode series with a plot that has a beginning, middle and ending. The show has fighting robots and all the characters don't share the same face. It's not based on a light novel, or even a manga or mobage. It's genuinely funny and read more

I decided to write a review to give an update at the midpoint of the series and because I feel the overall score may scare away people who are potentially interested in it. This series is silly, filled with 'did that just happen' moments, while being serious at the same time.

Story: The world of Lingalind is surrounded by a wall that the people worship. It's divided by two nations at odds with each other. The Supremacy of Lutoh who take pride in intelligence, and the Republic of Rekka who honor valor above everything else. What could go wrong when everything they thought was read more

So I checked it out based on the preview which gave it ten points. 5-6 IS PERFECT SCORE

I was not really intrigued by the story it sounded quite basic, a bit attack on titan, a bit mecha, a bit galactic heros, a bit clamp, toppen gurren lagan, kingdom, a bit arc the lad.

It plays in a world where there is a wall (seems fairly popular nowadays since trump xd) surrounding various countries. There seem to be two empires, one styled in renaissance -industrial Europe, the other styled after imperial china. In between is some american cowboy land. In these territories from time to time something read more

Back Arrow is a terribly bland, uninspired mess of a show. The show is extremely bland, with nothing new being brought when watching. The show is centered around this kingdom inside a big bunch of walls, where the people are stuck there trying to hide from the big monsters. The main character, that is a goofy, semi-reasonable protagonist that wants to see beyond the walls, and will fight the bad guys with his big mecha “Manifest Armor”, which everyone has, making it feel like it’s very unoriginal and pointless, because it is unoriginal and pointless. Maybe if the show took place long ago and they read more
