Action Level: 4/5
I really loved seeing Sasuke engage in hand-to-hand combat against a guy twice his height
and age. However, the robot battles got vaguely Dragonball-ish at times.
Romance Level: 3/5
The love triangle between Sousuke, Kaname, and Tessa could've been refined a little,
especially between Tessa and Sousuke. I mean I kind of knew something like this was going to happen the moment they
introduced Tessa, but I still couldn't see the smooth development of the relationship between Tessa and Sousuke like I saw
the one between Sousuke and Kaname. And really, whoever made up the rule that romances aren't allowed in military organizations
should be dragged out into the street and beat with a tire iron... and be forced to watch this.
Comedy Level: 2/5
Though I thought Chris Patton did a good job with Sousuke's dead pannery, the slapstick
scenes with Sousuke and Kaname at school were irritating and only served to further convolute what this show was trying to
Adult Level: 2/5
There are of course a few brief scenes of nudity but no sex, and there is blood but no
gore. There is violence but you don't see anyone's mangled corpse.
Drama Level: 3/5
They did it a little better with the drama than the comedy. But the drama was misplaced
in a lot of areas, like the "argument" between Tessa and Mao, or Sousuke angsting because he couldn't activate his Lambda
Driver. However, with the feelings of the female cast, I thought they did a good job with.
Overall Level: 3/5
I was disappointed they diddn't do a better job on it. If they picked
one or even two genres and stuck with them, I think it would've been better. But instead, they went off everywhere.
It's definitely worth a one-time watch, maybe even a second time if you enjoyed it, but I really can't see the fans who would
get into this.
