Better Than I Expected
Before diving into the spoiler space, here’s a general impression.
- Themes: Sacrifice, Bonds (See spoiler space.)
- Visuals: 8/10 (More than adequate, but not top)
- Characters: 9/10 (Better than expected, -1 for annoying reporter)
- Sounds/ Music: 7/10 (Good hard rock, but nothing truly special)
- OP/ED: 5/10 (Uninspired, meant for easy use in US market i.e. no voice, so no additional $ involved)
- Plot: 9/10 (Not perfect but greatly exceeding expectations)
I really was surprised by how much I ended up liking this show, and the ending was particularly strong.
Greater than the sum of its parts and a surprisingly enjoyable experience. Strongly recommended for anyone even remotely interested in mecha, sci fi, comics and/ or Iron Man.
