Boobs.... excuse me boobies.... wait.... breasts.... LARGE BREASTS! Okay now that that is out of my system I'll get on with it. Although it was funny to have my bf walk in and say hey "hello" with eyes popping out every now and then to the bounciness. Hell I probably would have had the same reaction.
There was a lot of spacey/sci-fi jargon to this one. So if you aren't up to date on either of the "languages" you'll be lost cause most of the time you'd have to put the pieces together on your own. Luckily I am somewhat so I enjoyed the watch.
None of the characters really stood out for me. I liked Luxandra. Spoiler whenever I like a character they die though 😐 I had some kind of connection with her. I guess it was the fear of needles part and her sheer toughness. Everyone else was your typical anime character and not really worth mentioning.
The music/sound was amazing. I was expecting to be let down by this because I normally am but... wow.... The only complaint about music would be the ending songs to both seasons. They were pretty boring and annoying. Season 2's opening was a little annoying but catchy at the same time. While Season 1's was amazing and I listened/watched it each episode. (which is very rare for me to do) Sometimes while watching I would find myself getting lost in the music instead of listening to the characters talk. Which wasn't bad at times cause well... the talk was pretty boring to begin with if the background music was distracting.
Nothing much to say about the art. I found it to be very boring. The random CG parts especially because they looked like crap to me. The Ghouls were kinda cool but not really. If anything I liked the Mecha's because they actually looked like robots and not some kind of super random flying man like machine. I hope you know what I mean by that.
I enjoyed the 2nd season way more than the first. I like time travel so that had a lot to do with it. I could have easily watched the second only. As the first really only had character introductions in it which I could have done without cause it was just filler to me.
When I first started watching it it gave me a Babylon 5 feel to it. I don't know if it was the animation or what. But throughout the series I kept having that feeling. Which was nice because it's been a while since I've seen anything anime or regular TV that even remotely resembles B5 let alone make me think of it.
Maybe it's only me but in the 2nd season Misaki was frequently (and in the end credits) wearing a yellow dress. Which always screamed Asuka from EVA to me. It had a very high feel to EVA while watching, although it wasn't as hard to figure out as EVA was.
I'd recommend this show to anyone that likes Sci-Fi and doesn't mind getting distracted by boobies.
