The world is great. There is almost no war because these machines were made, Objects, that now fight every thing. There is really no need for a military of solders now. All there is a need for is Object pilots and mechanics for Objects. Every one knows that if you Object loses there is no turning back. You don’t have a chance against an Object, so yours has to win.
“In the golden age of Objects, this is just a waste of taxpayers money”, that quote sums up how I feel about this show. Now, that might just be because it is the first episode and every thing has to be set up. But, it seems to be just fallowing other military and mech animes and not have really any of it’s own ideas. Who know it may pick up in the next few episodes, but if it doesn’t it’s not going to be any thing good.
The main problem I have with this show is the characters ages. First off any military in a developed country, you have to be at least 18 to join. There are exceptions and I’m not going to get into that. The characters here look very young. The girl, Milinda Brantini, look like she is maybe 16, maybe. And I’m being generous by anime standards. The two guys, Qwenthur Barbotage and Havia Winchell, look maybe 18, maybe. And then Frolaytia Capistrano is their commanding officer, and they even state she’s 18. That means every one must be younger then her. You never know in anime and that bothers me. A lot of show do this because other popular military shows have very young leads. It is mainly to connect with the audience who is normally around that age, but it is written into the plot why they are so young. Examples are Fullmetal Alchemist, Ed is 15, but there is not age limit for alchemist in the military and every other military person in that anime is well over 25. The original Mobile Suit Gundam, every one on White Base is young because every one else is dead, they don’t have a choice they have to fight. It doesn’t matter there age, if they don’t they die. Finally Attack on Titan, the characters are young, again because every one else is dead. Just trowing young people into a military settling doesn’t make sense unless you have a plot reason for it. If you don’t have a reason for it, it’s just lazy story telling.
I also have to say it, Objects? There wasn’t any other name that could come out of this. No, ok so we’re going with Objects. Do no one stop and think that might be a bad name for an all powerful super weapon? I’m really just asking.
