Lmfao it's a mecha anime?

I was expecting a SoL.

The mecha doesn't look bad but the car is pretty ugly.

Nice mech. Pretty sleek. Unlike the car...

I guess this was pretty deceiving, wasn't it. How innocent a girl holding a flower can be.

But a car company designing the mechs? Must have some pretty bored design engineers over at Nissan.

WHAT? It was mecha? This definitely tells us we can't judge a book by its cover huh?
Well, the mecha doesn't look good at all to me, but I'll still check it, probably.

(Those pantsu though, they do look good)

Wait... mecha and ecchi (and comedy)? Hells yes. This might be my guilty pleasure of the Winter season.

The "transformed fighter" looks sorta like a butterfly...
This anime sounds kinda weird to me... a 17 year old girl wearing a jersey while riding a robot fighting aliens?

It's the nissan Juke and yes it is ugly. I was like use the Nissan R32, R33, R34, R35, or the Silvia S15, S14 or S13 hatch. Come on! =)

The Juke isn't that bad of a car despite its looks. Turbo + AWD in a practical package is very nice. I'd take my large displacement V8 over it any day but it's great to see some "fun" back in the Japanese car lineup. It's a shame, but Nissan seems to be the last one of them that actually cares about enthusiasts.
Ok™

Lol what a bizarre mix this sounds like...


How much of the comedy in this is actually funny and how much is just "lol t&a" will probably decide if I enjoy this or not. It certainly sounds like it has the potential for campy fun.

Neat mecha art, however, they are never similar to the Nirvash type ZERO spec 3 and a little bit of the END.

Didn't expect it to be a mecha, I don't really like that genre. I don't think the characters look like they fit in a mecha. Great though that Nakajima Megumi is singing the OP & ED themes, I really liked her songs in the Tamayura OVA.
That car looks like a Shinkansen E5 trainset in those colors.

Haha why did they use the Nissan Joke-- ehh... Juke of all things? =P

As for the anime:

"Kyono Madoka is a 17-year-old girl, who loves her home town Kamogawa and likes to help people in trouble. She rides a robot called Woks in her jersey wear and fights against aliens."
...what? o.O

Mecha, Comedy and Ecchi? May be worth a try! xD

Meh. It doesn't sound at all interesting. The robot-thing's design is good, but the car's ugly.

I'm not expecting much...

Madoka? I sense things will go VERY wrong in this anime.

Design's nice, but I've never been interested in mecha.

Finally! I don't see many mecha anime with a leading female protagonist as the pilot so it's about time they're making some! The mecha doesn't look bad, though. :)

Megumi Nakajima fuck yeah.

The art there reminded me of Eureka 7 for a second, as well as one of the mechs. Actually..maybe it's just me..but a lot of the mechs resemble insects of sorts...

Won't judge until I see it, but I'll be watching~

I like the Juke.....

It's got class and looks like a Japanese car.

Most japanese cars these days don't look like Japanese cars anymore.
