I could give you an honest well thought out answer, but I like the show far too much to say anything negative about it in a thread like this. So, Japan has shit taste. Just be happy it got a proper ending.
>>13821317 It was kinda generic and forgettable. The characters were all bland and there were too many of them for such a short time to properly flesh any of them out. Also the story really fell apart by the end. All in all though, despite forgetting about it fairly soon it was still enjoyable.
That said the designs for the main duo mecha were great and the animation for them was pretty good. I'm okay with them using CGI on less detailed/important mooks while properly animating the main guys.
Buddy Complex was fucking garbage that didn't have any idea what it wanted to do and ended up doing absolutely nothing.
The plot twist at the very end was the turning point where it could've become really good but it came too late to save the series.
Maybe they were planning on splitting the series into two seasons and wanted to end the first on that twist. That would have been great if it didn't leave the first season with otherwise absolutely nothing else to go on. They should've just tossed it in halfway through.
>>13821317 It was not advertised enough even by Bandai. It was just an anime made solely to promote a video game on phone, with no other intentions.
Character design was good. Directing and animation good Music was good, not only the coupling theme, i like the others too. The mecha design was bland for the most, atrocious for the rest and this was probably a huge flaw for a mecha show.
In any case it was one of my favorite show of 2014, but yes, it's generic, forgettable and without anything innovative.
I imagine with Buddy Complex it goes something like this:
>Studio 8 gets an anime original greenlit on the premise of tying it into a phone game because Love Live's phone game is hilariously successful >the phone game flops like most phone games do (seriously the number of anime style phone games you see cease service after only a few months is huge) >after Love Live S2 did stupidly fucking well the Love Live movie and a new Love Live get greenlit and Studio 8 transitions to full time Love Live duty >with no sponsor interest and no studio resources to put into it, S2 gets shitcanned into 2 episodes The poor sales of the show are practically anecdotal.
What pisses me off is getting absolutely zero Valiancer figures.
