I dropped it after like nine episodes. I just couldn't stomach the ridiculous idea of a group of child soldiers not only being: lucid, not drug addicted, well adjusted, trained to operate heavy armor, and not just used as infantry cannon fodder; AND that they also were able to overthrow a large number of adult professional soldiers with virtually no blood shed. I can stand magic robots, anime cliches out the ass, and the power of friendship, but that broke my suspension of disbelief so hard I could hear it snapping.
And I know I dropped it fairly early, but the story didn't even make sense at the time. Just how exactly was this teenage girl supposed to negotiate a beneficial arrangement for Mars? She was abandoned by her government, her father, the head of that government, had disowned her and tried to have her killed, and her only direct support was a group of child soldiers that had committed treason and went AWOL.
And maybe they got better later on, but the characters were the same stupid recycle anime cliches with a couple of different designs slapped on. The most interesting character was the mechanic dad figure, and not only was he was barely in the goddamn show, but he was just the "tough and gruff man who loves kids with his heart of gold".
>>138042004 >Not infantry cannon fodder Literally exactly what they were
>Large number of professional soldiers Literally 10 soldiers that had their meal drugged. 2 of them were shot.
>Teenage girl She's the voice of the rebels from an influential mars family. She was in talks with one of the four major earth governments. This is the entire plot of the show. She was never disowned, what are you talking about.
>Committed treason and went AWOL Again, what the fuck are you talking about? Are you sure you watched 9 episodes of this anime? The tekkadan is a PMC. They are not part of any army.
Are you actually retarded enough to not have understood the plot to this anime? Now I'm questioning whether I'm just reply to some stupid copy-pasta.
>>138042640 >getting this mad that other people didn't like your below average anime >being this desperate to invent reasons that the show was good >even pretending the dad didn't allow the daughter's assassination because it was politically convenient
>>138042287 I highly doubt she was ever really supposed to negotiate any sort of deal. She's just a convenient figure head that was meant to be assassinated to incite a rebellion. The only reason anyone knows who she is is because the powers at be are spreading her name for their own gain.
>>138043485 It actually has a plot beyond just "Royal family is pitted against another royal family while local farm boy magically has the power to control the one machine able to turn the tide of an entire war".
>>138043685 >Royal family Gjallarhorn and the Seven Stars >against royal family Martian princess and subfaction in Seven Stars >Local farm boy Muh poor orphans >Magically has the power to control the one machine Only person to ever survive getting three Alaya-Vagina implants
