otakunick anime reviews (soukou no strain)
hey guys its me again hear to bring you another review of a anime i just finished thanks to netflix called souko no strain a mecha anime from 2006 and i have to say i liked it its not the best anime ever but its defanetly a good watch
one thing it rely has going for it is the story In the distant future, mankind is divided into two factions: Union and Deague. They have waged a war against each other for so long that no one remembers when it first began. The backbone of the Union military is the manned weapons system Strain, while the Deague uses an unmanned version, the Tumoru.
Sara Werec, the daughter of a respectable family, is a 16-yearold girl who attends Grapera Space Armed Soldier Academy located in the Cranial Solar System, where she is training to become a full-fledged Reasoner (a Strain pilot).
Her brother, Ralph Werec, had been sent to the frontline 130 light-years away to accomplish a special mission when she was 11 years old, a distance that requires 400 years of objective time to traverse by even the fastest Union spacecraft. However, in accordance with the theory of relativity, this corresponds to only two subjective years (time as experienced by those within the spacecraft).
The two of them had lost their parents when they were young and the bond between the two is very close. It is Sara’s dearest wish to be reunited with her brother. To do that, she must travel to the battlefield where he is.
One day, Sara’s planet is suddenly assaulted by Deague forces. To her surprise, her brother, Ralph, turns out to be one of the raiders who successfully kidnap a mysterious girl sleeping in a capsule.
In order to find the truth, Sara gets in a Strain and chases after him yea this anime has alot it rely what to say sadly with only 13 eps we rely never get a good look at the world at larg it rely just focuses on the main cast but because of that we get a rely tight story that works well id just like to learn more about the world the story takes place in is all
the cast is a good one with realistic emotions and reactions to high stress sichuwations involving war and lose of life witch is nice to see as for the desing of the cast well its 2006 when anime was still tiring to figuer out how to make use of computer cell animation so things are a bit choppy but on the other hand the mecha in this look rely good i rely like the strain espasholy the gloire witch has a black selena feel to it and is fast becoming my Favorite non humanode mecha
the soundtrack is your standerd mid 2000 afar meaning you hardly hear it but when you do its a ok score nothing to get all up in arms about but i did like the op
so all in all i say give this show a chans its only 13 eps sum thing you blast thew in a day and you can find it on netflix so untill next time keep watching anime
