Well, there are some series that involves time traveling like Steins;Gate & Haruhi Suzumiya. This one has its elements too but it’s not very detailed since most parts of this series consists of mecha action scenes & the crisis that involved between two big factions. So after what we’ve seen in this episode, it’s clear that the timeline distortion is involved. That answers the questions about what caused the event that happened in the 1st episode.
I was about to say that this series bores me with all the repetitive fighting mechas in each episode but this episode just made me really interested about what’ll happen soon, especially the last scene where Bizon is still alive. So split cour is confirmed.
Most mecha battle scenes were done using the 2D animation methods. That’s one thing that I like because for me, it really goes well for a mecha anime. Musics, as usual were good but no comment. Character design were looking good, although some of them might have a bit of resemblances to the characters from Valvrave. The plot was OK but until episode 12, it progressed slowly like I had no idea what was really going on there. But at least this series is still a good one to watch. So then, looking forward to the 2nd season!
