If you dropped Argevollen because of something that happens early on, keep watching. That's addressed in a later episode. It's one of the few shows that does not pigeonhole plot points.
I dropped argevollen because it was too slow and the whole thing with everyman mc who's chosen and best-of-the-best getting both the most beautiful girl and the most powerful mech was pretty generic.
>gets the girl
>gets the most powerful mech
The most powerful mech in-universe is piloted by a dude who ends up pissing people off so hard that they refuse him the sweet release of death he craves.
Well, I wouldn't know that. Dropped it, remember?
Though, someday I'll probably give it another chance, first episode was really interesting.
Until the chosen one on a chosen mecha showed up.
I dropped this right before the end. It was a season of some majorly shit shows and I burned out. It was like, nothing interesting was happening and I was staying tuned hoping things would get better. They didn't. Theres one mech for the MC, it gets no upgrades or does anything special other than having plot armor. The cgi animation is done like shit. For some reason, planes dont exist as military weapons, they never explained that. The love interest is some shitty girl who cries every other episode. The only thing this show had going for it is that it was in the mecha genre which up until that point hadn't pushed out a turd of shit as bad as this trainwreck yet.

Who shot the shady bald boss?
Why did Samonji enjoy the other side?
Why did he just go and shut down every mech?
And that's just from the last episode

His wasn't the most powerful mech. It was the MP version of the one the MC and crazy Belkan guy piloted. The only thing that made it scary was the fact that he could control the whole squadron of MP machines with his mind.
The show had most of the failings of mecha shows and while some of the designs were fun the larger events as far as I got in the show were horrible.
The grunts before the Argevollen showed up were good.
