THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
FABULOUS. The main character is a legendary pretty boy.

Bones + action + fabulous pretty boy = hell yea :P

As for the actual episode, it was a really silly episode (but not like I didn't expect it). Lot's of fun to watch moments.

The animation was pretty damn good though, as expected of studio Bones.

FABULOUS screenshots :P










Next Episode Preview:

This is even more weirder than heroman! Of course, animation is superb, but the episode was kinda weird and funny I don't even know how to describe this. The battle scene is just awesome and the transfomation part was FABULOUS. Maybe I'll watch this just for lol's.

Keyword of the day: FABULOUS

This 1st episode meet my expectation :D BONES you are legend!!!
Many people would compare this with Gurren Lagann but personally it think Revolutionary Girl Utena is the closet comparison with this anime e.g shady organization & underground battle arena.
I love the OP & ED although at first i not sold with it when hear it's preview.

Takuto FABULOUS transformation is awesome! The mecha battle is kickass & flamboyant in the same time e.g. Tauburn spinning in the air :)

Oh, for your information guys the OP is storyboarded & directed by Shinichiro Watanabe, the Cowboy Bepop director :)

Mechanic Designs were nice to me. they're really similar to Baster Machines of Top 2!
loled at the word "Ginga Bishonen" (Galactic Adonis?) and "Kiraboshi" (twinkling stars?)
and, Battle scene was greater than expected.

by the way, I couldn't believe that Obata Takeshi, the author of Death Note is the designer of characters. maybe that's because these characters have colorful hairs unlike Death Note or Hikago or Bakuman.

Nope, not Takeshi Obata doing the original character design but the two siblings Misa Mizuya and Hiroka Mizuya (rumor floating that these two used to work with Obata but idk if it true) but yeah the art is similar ^_^;;

銀河美少年...oh man, hahahahaha, so funny. Animation and soundtrack were great though, so even though this episode was so random and weird at times I'm kind of looking forward to next week.

I never have seen Revolutionary Girl Utena but when you said so it must be, I do have to agreed with you Kagura89, don't think it's like Gurren Lagann.

I'm also very impressed of the first episode. :D

I heard the rumors that "Misa Mizuya and Hiroka Mizuya" is just an alias name of Obata. actually, some of them are really similar to Obata's characters...

^ Yeah had that on my mind when i first saw him talked. The characters are both similar too.
I loved the OP and ED. Besides the fact that they randomly transformed into a bishounen robot, with random mech fights... This was still awesome. I didn't think anything of this show when i saw it on the season roster, but this so far is the best of the season for me. Big surprise.

That. Was. Awesome. The characters were awesome the villains were cliched (which fits with the overall feel). The female lead is fucking adorable. The show is just plain awesome while maintaining a certain level of tongue in cheek.

This last point is where I think people are finding the similarity with gurren lagann. Not to mention that takuto's entrance in that intermediary space-time hole thing strongly appeared to be going beyond the impossible. Heck he clearly kicked reason to the curb before the show even started when he swam across the freaking ocean.

Truth be told the second I saw the episode title I was sold. I can see nowhere you could go with that and not have it be awesome. I suspect that for whom this is not the case might be a bit less receptive to what follows.

Once in a while there is a show which my entire week revolves around. Days of the week are only significant insomuch as they indicate how long I have to wait until the second episode. I suspect that this may such a show.

I was a little confused but I'm sure the next few episodes will explain what happened and why.

I love how some parts were just so "over-the-top". The Galactic Pretty Boy transformation scene made my day. The fight scene afterwards was nice too.

Great OP and ED and I like the character designs.

I don't know if I'm allowed to provide a direct link, but just Google "gg fansubs" and it should be the first link.

Relax, we have 25 episodes to understand :P

Want the song sang by the maiden!!
Amazing animation and the fight scenes were pretty good.
Loving the VA cast.
The bishounens are highly appreciated ;)

Amongst the new shows, only Iron Man was a let down. The new season is godlike.

Sorry, but I don't believe anybody has uploaded it for online viewing yet.

Besides, downloading and watching it from your hard drive means you get to see it at the best quality available.

Some people just don't dig the bishies. It'll be interesting seeing if this can maintain the interest of such people, seeing as they appear to be in some way integral to the premise.

As the episodes continue I want to try and find some way to gauge whether takuto is more or less flamboyant than lelouch.
