>Cute Emaan Girls Doing Cute Girl Things
Just got back into watching anime again after a 2 year break. Was halfway through Orguss then when my life went to hell and I quit doing anything fun for a long time after. I even quit posting here on /m/ so I'm sure you must have noticed the posting quality go up in my absence!
First off I actually liked this show despite the flaws and my long break away. Animation sucked for the fights but they did get better in the second half (like all /m/ shows). Tons of recycled footage everywhere but the animation and quality was fine outside of the fights. I did like how the fights get pretty large scale later on when the Emaan fleet joins the main ship on it's journey to the orbital elevator (Can Gundam 00 do anything original?) and the later subsequent teamup with the Chilam to fight the Mu. The show is actually ambitious for what it is and I feel if they had just had more budget or at least better allocated the budget away to something that wasn't cute girls, cute robots, cute robot girls, and cute dragons doing cute things we might have at least gotten some cute mechs doing cute things.
Speaking of the girls, robots, and dragons. I really liked how much attention they put into the characters outside of the mechs in terms of designs. Tai (QQ) and Jabby felt like and looked like Shining Force characters which I really enjoyed. Who was this show designed for? They spent a shit ton of time making the girls cute and put in quite a bit of fanservice and even some soft nudity on the cute emaan girls. There is not a single uncute girl in the entire cast. It's like a reverse SDF Macross where the QUALITY is in the mech fights and instead of Itano circuses we just get DYRL Minmay/Misa closeups but for every girl. I'm surprised /a/ doesn't waifufag this show since it is pretty much the peak of 80s animu grills.
