That was a rather generic first episode for a mecha series, and all I could think about during the swimming scene was how hot it will look in the manga (apparently it's out, I have to check it out).

Still, it wasn't bad by any means. Waiting to see more.

The beginning made me fear why Yabuki was chosen to draw the manga. There might be a lot of nudity.

This us weird, various design looks like they would fit into eighties, premise sound like borderline porn mecha parody. Yet it's played perfectly straight and it somehow works

So far heroine does it for me, she certainly have unique personality yet unlike similar situation she is neither pushy, bland nor annoying. For once I can see why would MC be fascinated by her, though it helps that in the end he jumped in is not because her or some heroism but because it was something he seek for himself.

Damn, this was so generic. Not that I was expecting anything original but this looks like they were just ticking boxes with the most overused tropes.

Animation was good but I can't keep watching just for that.

Not much to say, but that it was a generic first episode for a mecha. It wasn't bad though, and the setting seems like it will be interesting, so hopefully things pick up from here.

You should check one of these days Star Driver. The mecha transformation from Darling is quite similar with the MC even shouting "Ginga Bishonen!!" every time he uses it.

Also, I think Star Driver's director was also behind Captain Earth

Every little thing shown in this show I've seen before, honestly, you can connect all the scenes to a previous anime.

But who cares!? It was AWESOME!!! I want more!!!

Seriously, that was great from beginning to end, it looked great, 02 is awesome, and as many characters as him I've seen before, Hiro never bothered me at all throughout the episode. In fact, if there's one thing that bothered me is how FRANXX are apparently the evolution of Tauburn. Seriously, look up Star Driver.

Best premiere of the season to me, and definetly looking forward to more.

Oh, and I also appreciated we were told right away

The Trigger style threw me off, but now I've realized this is totally Pacific Rim. Two people pilot a mecha to fight blue-blooded Kaiju.

It's made by Trigger so it's a must watch for me, even tho mecha is not my favorite cup of tea (with a few exceptions, of course)! Their art and animation are pure joy to my eyes.
Sure, the boy meets girl is a familiar cliche, but i'm curious to know more about everything else related to those monsters, the main girl (loved her personality already) and how the world became that way. Kinda disappointed at the male MC tho. His design and personality were a bit weak for my taste. Maybe they wanted to make him a total opposite from 002 but still... who knows, maybe it will grow on me eventually.

One thing this series has is the benefit of the doubt, this is a trigger show, the same studio that delivered Kill la Kill, LWA, Inferno Cop and other shows that ended on being really good ones. A-1 delivered some good stuff and some mediocre series too, so there is a chance for something bad.

Yes the first episode is relying heavily on cliche stuff all over the place but we must wait a bit before judging it because it can be something incredibly good and fun. 24 episodes is enough to do that.

A little too moody for my tastes, but at least it isn't boring.

I was like "Oh, that's a female Tauburn". And was secretly hoping this would be somehow related to Star Driver.

I honestly really didn't care about how cliched this was. It's been such a long time since a proper mecha tv series, that it could have been the third rehash of the original Mobile Suit Gundam and I'll still love it. XD

What really impressed me was the 2d mecha action. I honestly thought only Sunrise does those nowadays, so I'll forgive the designer for basically just making a female Tauburn.

That said, those shorts with that long sleeved uniform just looks... EEEWWWW.

This was pretty good, there is a lot that is very similar to most mech anime starts, but the animation, the direction, and the soundtrack is pretty good. The male MC is your usual main character in a mech series, but I like him a little better than many other MCs, there is a hidden strength to him and I think he complements 002 very well. 002 is also rather refreshing as well. She's strong but simple, she's not your usual tsudere female heroine, she and the her male partner really seem to have a connection.

The amount of flower references in there series would make a botanist squee in delight. I'm interested in seeing if that's just a theme or will it have more meaning later on.

I like that both the male and female MCs did a very good job of both of them carrying the episode. She is the strength and he is the heart. He doesn't seem to be a weakling either. There is a reason that he was told he could stay while the other girl was being forced to leave. I'm liking what I'm seeing and I'll be interested in seeing what happens next.

It IS weird, though not unusual in terms of uniform style. I have about 5 Japanese male students in grades 5 and 6 who have this style of uniform. White shirt, long sleeve navy jacket top, and shorts. It's really weird to me, since it's winter now and the temperature here has gotten to freezing and lower, and the boys bundle up in coats, and yet still wear shorts? Having come from northern states in the US and having to deal with brutal winters all my life, I can only raise an eyebrow and the interesting look.

I liked how the first episode gave both MCs' perspective about the Jian.
