A great introduction episode. Even though Gen Urobuchi is only writing the first three episodes (for now) it does have his ideas in it. Granted a lot of exposition in the first episode but it is very interesting. Having two sides (the Earth citizens and 'Martians') and both have their shades of light and dark in their society. Guaranteed the Princess is not dead, she's one of the main character and we've only seen so little of her (granted they can use flashback but still way too early). Inaho (voiced by the ever so lovely Natsuki Hanae) is a very unique character given his very calmly a bit too calmly (will be interesting here why later on). Also Sora Amamiya as Princess was excellent reminding me of Kaori in One Week Friends. Music was spot on brilliant and yes may be the same Sawano Hiroyuki but you know what that man knows how to do epic music. I'm hoping for a two cour (whether it's split or not) to have a much more fleshed out story exploring both sides of this war with the good and bad. I'm just hopeful Takayama Katsuhiko will able handle the writing duties as well after the third episodes but given the fact that both him and Gen discussed early in development where this story goes I'm more hopeful. So hopefully this will be just as good as I hope it will be or better.

The premise is a total rip-off from Turn A Gundam, Urobutcher or not.

Slaine= a combination of Loren and Harry Ord
Asseylum=Dianna Soreil
Saazbaum=Phil Ackman
Martians=Moon Race(bit ironic though since Moon got destroyed in this show)

the set up is typical sci fi mecha, let's just see how the story and the execution will differentiate it from other has beens.

That shooting star scene is just brilliant. Highly ironic and not overly melodramatic like many has suggested here.

Except the premise so far is completely identical to the one from Turn A Gundam.Just saying.

Really interesting first ep, even if the setting is a copy/similar of Turn A. The next eps will decide how it unfold.

Well so is the Princess dead or not?... damn no preview!

Kalafina is only an opening... Everyone knows the better composer is Hiroyuki.

Finally a series that compliments the Guilty Crown OST.

A series already compliments the Guilty Crown OST, it's called Shingeki no Kyojin.

And Kill la Kill. The guy seemingly has an exclusive on "writing OSTs for bombastic, epic premises" .

"On that day, mankind received a grim reminder. We lived in fear of the VERS empire and were disgraced to live in this cage we called Earth."

We don't know how violently the moon broke up; it is possible for that to not cause an extinction event if it was just very large pieces with little energy denting the earth.

Dinosaurs got hit by a bullet, this could very have been a very slow moving truck for all we know.

That said, the "earthlings survived it" is more or less just fiction convenience since unless somehow those pieces only landed on the earth masses and the crust just caved in and absorbed all the impact, any one of them landing in the ocean would literally "wash humanity off the face of the earth."

Very nice first episode, really liked it. It avoids most of the consistently used clinches that come with mecha anime, and there's no obvious logic plot holes. While some things are more or less predictable, its still well done regardless, and this episode sets things up nicely for what can come next.

Doesn't look that interesting to me. At least the princess died, it will save us from some peace cheap talk.

Pretty good first episode. One of the better premieres I've seen so far this Summer, actually.

The show might not be very original, but it has a good sense of style, dramatic timing, and gravitas. It looks promising so far.

Spoiler for Timeline:
So...a random mad scientist declares himself the head of a new cult and then proceeds to declare war on earth...sweet.

One thing that always amazes me is how exactly can a small group of settlers(in this case around 350k) rebel against the world and how they are able to arm themselves to such a level that they can defeat the garrison stationed to prevent such a situation from occurring in the first place, as well as successfully holding back a massive counterattack from Earth.

So...the Martian society is an absolute monarchy or an oligarchy at best that's run by a group of parvenu,zealot aristocrats who thinks they are better than anyone who isn't amongst them, even though they became aristocrats in little more than a single generation and that they are appointed by a group of self-proclaimed royals.Sweet.

7 pages already? I'm not reading all that . I figured it would be the most popular show of the season, but this is exceeding my expectations.

The first episode was pretty engaging. It did a good job setting up the premise. There is not much I can say about the plot so far. The setting is pretty typical, I'm currently watching Gundam Age and it uses pretty much the exact same premise (Former Earthlings that settled on Mars coming back to conquer Earth). What intrigued me the most was the ruins of that ancient civilization. I'm sure it will be highly relevant and I wonder what they're going to do with that.

Although I'm not completely sold on the story yet, everything else was stellar. I was blown away by the art, the animation, and the music. You can tell this is an ambitious project. Another thing I liked is who I assume is the main character is very calm and collected, as opposed to most MCs in mecha anime that are usually too emotional. Of course, an emotionally dead character is no fun (hello, Mahouka), so I hope he does have some semblance of emotions. Just not too much. I just want him to be the rational type.

Most promising anime of the season so far. I'm fairly confident this will be great. With a staff like that, it's hard to imagine this will fail.
