Hey guys OtakuNick hear witch a new review for you. Yes I know Its been a long time but I was in a rely big slump but now Im back and tho I will not be posting as often I will be posting what I love the post the most reviews of anime. Because Iv alwaysed beleved its the duty of thows that have watched way to much to gide thows that have watched almost nothing. so with out any more delays lets get to it.
This anime was brout to us by three company's first being Sunrise beast known for being the animation company behind the mobile suit Gundam franchise witch hase be going for nerly 35 years now. But they where also the company that gave us Code Geass, Cowboy Bebop, and many more anime now cunsitered classics. the next two companys are mor like one as they are just to branches of the same parent company Aniplex, and Aniplex of America. If thow names ring more bells in your head then sunrise that is no saprise as they are the ones that brout you animes like Blood+, Darker then black, and most notably Fullmetal Alchemist and Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood. So needless to say this anime has alot of big names behind it.
Now then even if the show was made by big companys that dosint meen they will be good no thats up to the staff. And let me say the people that worked on this anime know thar stuff. First off we have the Director Matsuo, Kou thow I wouldint call him the most well know director he dos a okay job hear and sum of his more notable works includ being on the Storyboard staff for Gundom 00. next up is Okouchi, Ichiro the script writer unlike Matsuo Kou Okouchi, Ichiro is what Id call a big time player as he work on sum farly high profiled shows as a script writer such as Trun A gundam, code geass, and Eureka Seven He even wrote the Screenplay from one of my favret lesser know anime Shigofumi. So needless to say the scrip is in good hands. Now then whare would a Mecha anime be without kick ass robots well Washio, Naohiro has you covered thar this is the man behinf the Fafner in Soukyuu no Fafner: Dead Aggressor - Exodus and he makes sum rely cool looking mecha for this anime.
True Calendar (T.C.) 71 - A new age where 70% of the human population lives in space thanks to the development of "Dyson Sphere", a city in space.
The world is divided into two main powers: The Dorssia Military Pact Federation, a power which grew out of a military alliance, and the Atlantic Rim United States (ARUS), which grew in power as it expanded its trade agreements. The minor nation of JIOR has declared neutrality between these two forces and maintains its peace through economic prosperity.
Within the JIOR's Sphere, Haruto Tokishima lived an ordinary life as a high school student in the division known as "Module 77"—until the Dorssian military begins their sudden invasion!
But the whole world will be shaken when Haruto meets the mysterious humanoid weapon, Valvrave!
Now then the story may seem like your basic gundam rip off and cunsitering this animes back ground one couldint be blamed for doing so. But its the sub plots that are rely going to get you to watch this anime. And I must say the way the first season leaves off you will ether be dreading you have to wait so long for season two or just give up on the show. myself I cant wait for season two.
like I sed this anime was made by both sunrise and aniplex two companys known for having good animation in thare more high profile shows and let me just say they do no disapont sunrise is in top form with animating the mecha and aniplexes charters are as crisp and emoting as ever when it comes to animation this show has the beast of bolth worlds.
Okay so so fare we hve talked about the story, art and who made the show all that is left is how the show sounds. I have to say I love the OST and sound effects in this show plain and simple. Yes the OST is no ware near Yoko Kano level work but for this show is great I always have a hard time skipping the OP and I never skip the ending theme as for insert songs thow non stick out to me as must haves at the time they worked varry well. so over all I say this is a varry nicely put togreather sound track
Okay so for you that just like a yea or nay type revie and dont whant to read my long winded review hears the clifnotes. the show is good it come from good stock and its art is good looking. the story is okay the main plot will not be turing many heads but the subplots will keep you intaresed in the show and show is has a polerising ending for the first season thare will be a second season. and the music is nice. so basicly Im say this is worth a watch .
