I love Yuuki Aoi and sounds cute when she voiced as Suishou Hakamada! I'm so excited!

That's one hell of good magical mecha anime so far. The mecha design is pretty spiffy for starters.

Oh, this looks pretty darn good! Production values, as a whole, are in fact quite good and the Mech Designs a treat so definitely a plus for me. Great to see Aoi Yuuki too!

Looking forward to seeing this in the Summer!

looks like it'll be good, but the mechs feel overdesigned, which will likely lead to the use of CG later on after the first few episodes. I never got that. they make the mechs look complicated and animate them in 2D for the first couple episodes, but since animating them is hard, they later switch to CGI. I don't like this business practice, not that they're doing this here. It seems like they're using limited animation techniques to avoid having to animate the entire mech, such as only animating a single part of the mech or turning the mechs into streams. These techniques can keep the mechs in 2D, but my guard is up. I don't have a problem with CG mechs, but when the sudden switch is made it can be jarring. My other problem with the mech overdesign is just that each mech feels EXTREMELY cluttered.
