THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Nice start to a first episode and I love the mecha designs in this, Madoka can kick some ass in that thing despite not being able to control it at all when she first got in it. That piledriver on Izo was awesome. Madoka herself is really sporty and likable and can't wait for the second episode.

Nothing much of a spoiler there Hoppy hehe thanks by that.
I haven't watch it yet but still it weird to start a season when it's almost a new year.

I think Symphogear's first ep aired too, but I haven't found a raw yet. Ok the MAL entry for that says currently airing.

symphogear is ment to be start airing 6januari according to the official site.
MAL is wrong with the date ;-) so is the date wrong for the anime "Another" which start airing 9januari (official site) instead of 26december like MAL says.

only watched the first 5minutes of the raw, It looks okay. will watch the other 20minutes when i'm back home.
official site says rinne no lagrange is supposed to start between 8-10januari depending on the TV station.


my mind = blown,

I have taken a glimpse at this series due to the terrible quality of the web preview whom I say the quality is very bad as in 360p or even 280p whom is terrible. However I have a few things to mention for those who wonder of this series.

About a first look, first of all the special effects such as the following,

Whom is amazing as a base at sea attacks an enemy mecha. That is awesome and this series caught my interest mostly in that part.

To further on things Ran in the following,

Reminds of Lumiere from:
http://myanimelist.net/character/2662/Lumi%C3%A8re
That is astonishing and good. I will tend to like her more due to that reminder. She is also funny as she is doing a cat paw thing at that part.

Finally when combat ends up as in the spoiler
one can marvel at how nice fights may be. It’s quite an EPIC lock on. The fight was quite good but I have to see EPIC. Considering this series it should be around the mids 6th episode that it should occur.

About the ecchi, but of course a mecha series does have an appeal with ecchi such as this series:
http://myanimelist.net/anime/3653/Kurogane_no_Linebarrels
Was fine with it IMO. Although many from the comments did not like it. This series should be more interesting due to mostly girls piloting mechas and the bad guy being male. Madoka’s ecchi in the list:
  • Madoka’s panties part in the spoiler
    was interesting to see. For one she reminded me of both of them:
    http://myanimelist.net/character/41303/Kotone_Sawanatsu
    http://myanimelist.net/character/8309/Hinata_Hino
    A nice mixture between them. So it proves there shall be panties shots in this series as fan service.

  • What gets better is Madoka’s shower scene in the spoiler
    now I can see that is censored and it really sucks considering this is web diffusion, they could have showed some more. One can say with a stitch I made in the spoiler
    that Madoka has a decent body. Well kept in shape and the breasts are not big or that big. So it’s fine of a character adaptation.

  • There shall be jokes like the breast poking with a kendo sword in the spoiler
    these might prove comedic if well done like that. Groping might be around too.
So in conclusion of fan service if it can balance out cock teasing with comedy along with other elements pertaining to SFX, action, drama, tragedy, EPIC war stuff and finally nice resolves with not much force or proper force display then all the best to it. This post may be edited later.

Heh, this anime feels like Star Driver and IS mixed in together. Too bad there's only a crappy web video feed at the moment. It was really hard to see some of the darker scenes. I'm liking the mixed in comedy and of course the ecchi looking pretty good. I look forward to the 2nd episode and hopefully a decent group picks this up to sub.

Must see Robots in HD

But... the name 'Robot' sounds kinda lame = =|

By the way, Madoka's Robot is the legendary Vox :O

Not sure if that has any significant meaning~

Euh no, I was just referring specifically to Ran's character design and appearance. It reminds me of Eclair very much.

As for the series itself, not sure on a whole how it will be. Do know Kiddy Grade featured ecchi scenes but nothing of serious. So this series balances it out then it might work out as replacement of the newer kind this season as a Kiddy Grade genre.

Wow, this was horrible. Especially character design. And especially main character girl. As for the rest, it reminds me second half of Star Driver. Only even worse. Seriously, giant robots and shoujo crap don't mix.

I'll see how this turn out. I'm not fond of Fanservice but they weren't that much present in an annoying way so it's fine. I really liked the animation. The main Character is fun to follow and really likable. I'm not expecting an extraordinary plot but we'll see ! ;)
All depends if everything is mixed well together in other episode !

THIS ! Yes. Exactly what I tought when I heard it lol

That we will see when the series end ! =) I'm not a big fan of Kiddy Grabe but it was decent.
This show gives me more a feeling of 'To Aru Kagaku no Railgun' Similar mix of Fanservice, Comedy, Shoujo, Action and Sci-Fi.
I guess this could also apply to Kiddy Grade lol...

You hate male-beta-otaku-shut-in-character right? Now we have a cheerful-outgoing-energetic-female protagonist. Still have a problem?

But honestly, the name XEBEC just turned me off.

Mecha robots + guys is cool, but.. Mecha robots+girls+ecchi is NICE! I did like the scene when Madoka was stripped.

One thing I didnt like was how early on the bad guys were introduced. Usually they would be introduced on the 2nd ep but, in this case, the 1st ep. Not much detail revealed about the main character in this episode. I'm interested in seeing what happens later on.

BTW OST is nice. I can't wait to get the full song.

Not really my piece of cake, still have my doubts and the expectations are low, but we'll see how it does. Though it felt pretty refreshing to see an active main character - and so far not completely annoying - and an "emotionless" girl not so quite emotionless, causing some pretty amusing scenes.

I don't have very high expectations for the series, after watching the first episode, but I'm hoping that'll turn out to be a nice surprise. ^^ The whole mecha thing never really appealed to me in the first place.

Don't forget alot of shows have early pre-air showings of the first episodes including Lagrange's first episode that's way some of the dates don't match the official sites.

That's funny, because MOST of the Mecha shows I've liked were shoujo!!
(Sky Girls, Soukou no Strain.... even Jinki:Extend was good until the last 2 eps.)

Now I really want to know what's so fascinating about Madoka's butt. Just why would her Onii-chan stare so intensely at it? ಠ_ಠ  

And oh boy, she was able to win her very first battle in the first episode. Makes me think this show will go Star-Driver on us: She'll win all her battles without any hope of losing. That's not very appealing to me right now.

well, its funny and the main character is a girl.... better then the same old crap of having the protagonist a dude. visuals are also awesome... can't really comment on the character/robot designs as the web preview is horrid, but from what i see.. its ok. definitely gonna be worth watching if you like mecha.

The start looked a bit like something you expect from Evangelion tho that changed soon after the drowning kid appeared.
The main character seems like some sort of super girl with a weird personality which was funny to watch.
It also seems she is very loved in her school which must be because of her personality.

The there is the way she lived which seems to be with her uncle and that makes me wonder what happened to her parent's.
Since her cousin called the woman in the picture oba-san it's safe to assume that was her mother.
Also the way the cousin spoke seems to suggest that the robots are the reason why the mother isn't around.

I wonder what the expect of this anime it seemed nice so far.

Its nothing special but I enjoyed watching it because of the main character. When I watched halfway through it and there were a few other older series that automatically came to mind (Eureka 7, Evangelion, and rahxephon)

However, its nice to see a main character that is not a whiny little runt. Its a refresher.

It's quite good if u interested in this kind of anime.
But I'm not looking forward to see e 2nd episode that much.
Its quite boring.
Some of e character remind me of Gurren Laggan and e finishing move that e main character use remind me of Megas XLR.
I wish there would be more action next episode like in Vandread that will give me e chill on my neck.

Let's just hope it will be as good as IS. Although I see that IS has some mechas designs a little better than this. Then again not 720p makes it hard now to see exactly of the details.

Could be anything from a mark to looking for a person with something on their to being infatuated with a body part from a person. In this case incest? It can be also just for comedy and gags. I am banging on the assumption that something on her ass or some other person that has that on their ass has a huge advantage. Now where did happen before? Stardriver? No?

I didn't expect anything from this series but it's already proving to be a very cool SF show with awesome music, great direction and a very entertaining main character. Of course it's a bit cliché/fan service but this first episode was still a really convincing introduction.

In every age, in every place, the deeds of men remain the same.

1st episode was OK. But I sort of dislike "Mary Sue" characters such as Madoka and the fact that she beat the enemy mecha in 5 minutes because she's some sort of "Chosen One". Oh well, as said in previous posts, at least the protagonist doesn't start off as a whiny loser.

yeah i checked it out despite the bad video quality
it was an enjoyable watch.

so a boy doesnt out of nowhere get to pilot a mech, disappointed lol just kidding.

Rinne's Madoka is likeable but lets see what the reason for what appear to be aliens to attack. Cant wait to see how this anime goes. I have a good feeling it might be good.
