Action Level: 3/5
Not as good as the movie, but reasonable.
Romance Level: 2/5
Batou's passionate cry at the final episode was more comical than it was romantic.
Comedy Level: 3/5
The Tachikomas, those mini spider tanks, talk and have female voices to boot. They're
so annoying, it almost makes me miss those three Zakos who performed in the Zako-Zako Hour at the end of most SD Gundam Force
Adult Level: 2/5
Very watered down. Instead of stripping down to the buff to do her action like she
did in the movie, they have the Major performing stuff in a tight pink halter top and jacket. If you ask me,
the halter top just doesn't suit her (no pun intended). Now I'm not saying she should kick butt naked (though I wouldn't
protest if she did), but at least put her in something more fitting like change the color of the halter top or put her in
that skin-tight gray jumpsuit she's seen wearing on front of the DVD cover. Oh yeah, and after episode 5, I started
to question the Major's sexual preference.
Drama Level: 3/5
The drama in SAC is a Law & Order meets RoboCop sort of deal. Each member performs
his or her duty with the efficiency you might expect from professionals.
Overall Level: 4/5
Despite being watered down, Stand Alone Complex is the perfect companion to the movie.
There were episodes that would appeal to all audiances and the ending was (in my own opinion) fitting. I really want
to watch SAC 2nd Gig now.
