This show got delayed a bit since it was not commercialy subbed & streamed. But last week the fan-subbers stepped up, and started with this TV series. Good thing too, since it would be a shame to miss this story. No real shooting or combat is at the center of its tale. It is about a bookishly successful student who finds herself in the middle of a claim-jumping raid, and finds herself forced to survive by living with, and ultimately sympathizing with, the claim jumpers themselves, a "family" of asteroid miners. It is an interesting tale with regards to mecha suits, remote control thereof, the "plugged in" lifestyle, prospecting and mining in "gold rush" format in space, and how small companies can stay in business ahead of the corporations. The characters are an interesting lot, both traditional and modern.

Yes, it's an interesting science fiction/mecha adventure series that more people should try to check out. I think it's definitely hinting towards a larger plot rather than truly episodic adventures, but each of the episodes have been enjoyable in their own right too. The cast is likable enough and I think there's some potential for nice developments around their interactions.

Ido is Setsuna's dream. That is all I have to say at the moment.

I want to see where Taniguchi will go with regards to themes of Transhumanism, especially as it's such a central aspect of most of the main cast (and the fact that the authorities/mainstream society seems to frown at it).

With regards to the CG, I enjoyed Sanzigen's work on Bubuki Buranki, so I'm pretty confident they'll deliver here as well.

I'm enjoying this. and the CG is really good. better than Seikaisuru Kado at the moment. though that's mostly because this one has more girls. :twisted:

The Blue Guy, whose name i can't recall at the moment, looks like Layzner if you give it more human proportions.

also, i'm getting a bit of Neo Ranga vibes. at least from the "in the Mecha genre and yet does not have the usual amount of mecha action" approach.

Love the mecha designs, really like where they're going with it conceptually, but I don't like the protagonist at all, and that could sink it for me. I'll give it a few more episodes, but I'm not optimistic.

This is true, Ido is living the dream. :)

Scarf and everything, seriously. The design of his robot body looks too much like the Exia to be coincidence. And I daresay the actor is Setsuna's very own, or one who sounds near-identical.

it's the latter comrade. Ido's Seiyuu/CV/VA is Kazuyuki Okitsu.
Miyano's voice, if you're a Seiyuu Otaku is easy to identify. he's got three or 4 tops. kinda like Johnny Yong Bosch amusingly enough. hey, there 's an idea for a dub!

another easily identifiable voice here is Rikiya Koyama.(Kiritsugu Emiya, Ging Freecs)

Maya is arguably the point of view character and she'll get some nice development in due time (I liked her interactions in the second episode, for the record), but a decent argument could be made showing that the real protagonist appears to be Ido. His name is even in the title and he's definitely at the center of the revelations we'll undoubtedly receive in the coming episodes. He even gets some more conflict/rivalry with the female soldier this week.

Yeah, Maya may very well improve, which is what I'm hoping for. Like I said, I'm loving the concept and the design work so far, so I really want to be able to stick with it, but man, that is exactly the kind of character that can kill it for me.

ID-0 4 was really good.

It's a classic scenario, but Amanza and ID-0 work well as rivals. Glad the focus is on that rather than on Rick's antics. Pretty nice trick with the billiard-style solution too. Protip: don't bully little mysterious little girls in space that are somehow connected to Shinto gods, whether literally or figuratively speaking.

The science in this science fiction story is really working on the physical level. This being anime though, the nuts & bolts only serve as the framework for meditation on the human-or trans human-condition. Remember, the cute little girl is the most powerful character on screen! :lol:

Amanza is good as an adult version of Maya in acting as a foil to the main crew. And Aido (ID-0 ;)) has some interesting character development ahead of him. Plus, his memory is something else to indicate that private industry has been reduced to semi-legal wildcat prospecting & piracy in order to survive. This world is just as big and insitutional as some other mecha anime worlds, and just as unforgiving in dealing with people who just won't FIt In.
