Liked the first half. Disappointed by the predictable second half. I was hoping for a darker turn to the story, but I don't think I'll be getting that now. It's a shame too, because I really like how Guilty Crown turned out and was hoping for more mature themes in this show as it kind of reminded me of Puella Magi Madoka Magica in a small way. Looks like I wrong.

all i liked about it was the animation and nothing more. too many loli crotch shots and the main character is so -_______-... the concepts are pretty...scientific but i dont think it really helps the plot itself.

Exactly.

I knew exactly what I was getting into when I saw these pictures from this anime:



^And I was immediately interested in watching this anime!

I could already tell the plot is going to be very thin and the driving force in this anime will be ecchi and cute girls doing cute things.

And I'm perfectly fine with that, because anime has a million different genres, and sometimes I want to see THIS type of anime.

And those that say that we are "wrong for drooling" at an anime that it's main objective is to sell sexualized girls, don't have any idea what they're talking about.

It really has a similarity with Strike Witches but i have to say this episode seem more fun than Strike Witches episodes. The artwork is also a lot better.
Generally i expected just some Strike Witches clone that was probably even worse than the original concept but i am quite pleasantly surprised that it turn out to be more entertaining that i thought.

Every time you try to put such realistic logic into anime(especially this kind), God kills a catgirl.

This show has some pretty nice art! The setting isn't bad either, even though I couldn't really take that talking weasel seriously. Way too many unnecessary butt shots too. xD

Bit cliche with the transformation and all, but Ill give it a go. :)

Absolutely loved it!!! So much fun to watch, this is how anime should be! All my favorite tropes rolled into one show:

Really long transformation sequences, that destroy clothes, except for the very tighty whities. Aliens that no one believed when crazy inventor grandpa, whose other invention placed his consciousness into a plush ferrett with his body in the fridge like Weekend at Burnie's, saw them six years ago in an accident which gave one main girl, his daughter a huge fear of heights she overcomes in the first episode to save her best friend the other main girl, so only he has prepared for them. Conventional weapons are useless, only 14 year old girls in hot pants AND tiny skirts using his inventions can save the earth... by docking!

I don't think they missed anything... except they don't seem to sing while they fight but we have AKB0048 for that...

Doesn't seem to be any romance triangle yet. They need to develop one between her, one of her childhood friends, and one of the enemy invaders.

Real military action and magic girls are an unusual mixture. In fact, I can't think of any examples of it I've seen before, off the top of my head.

First thing i noticed was the fanservice was reminiscent of Strike witches.

The fighting concept looks similar to SW as well. (Alones = Neuroi)

An impressive first ep. Definitely will keep watching this one. A-1 Pictures has been really impressing me lately.

Lol. It's like taking exams without even reviewing beforehand thinking they'll pass then they failed and complain that it's so damn hard.

Not knowing what kind of anime you are watching and then complaining about is kinda stupid, don'tcha think?

It's quite reasonable to watch things at random without finding out anything about them beforehand. What's unreasonable is to complain when this means you end up watching something that's not to your tastes, as if it's the fault of the show itself that it's aiming for an audience not including you.

rederoin said:

Only seen a few episodes of Strike Witches and never Sky Girls so I might be shaky on the details, but I was talking about more than just "girls with special powers which aren't made to look technological". The contrast which looks particularly interesting is the "being something unique which the conventional authorities know nothing of" part of the 'magic girl' tradition.

The first minute was just shots of loli booty, and I already tell that it's going to be the rest of the series.

I should put all logic aside while watching this show. Two bad not researching enough before watching this so I'm stuck with it till the end. Animation quality is great but like others have said, I'm a bit uncomfortable with all those sexual innuendo concerning little girls. Maybe I've already graduated from these types of anime.
However, this show is still heckofalot faster then Robotic; Notes in the first episode. >_<

So this is like Strike Witches meets Symphogear?

Did they really put their grandfather in the fridge? Oh well I guess technology's really advanced then, they can just thaw him out later lmao.

Very good anime so far. I totally love the character design. The tree scene reminded me of the tree scene of the first episode of Strike Witches (yea, I know same producers). The only difference: Yoshika (Strike Witches) wanted to save a cat from the tree and the other main girl wanted to save a baby bird.
