Sora wo Kakeru Shoujo: best mecha anime this season
I really shouldn’t have committed to blogging Viper’s Creed so soon. I’ve just recently checked out Sora wo Kakeru Shoujo, and it is clearly the superior mecha anime this season. So much so that it’s not even a mecha anime. It has transcended the limiting boundary known as the mecha genre and transformed into some kind of mecha/magical girl/parody hybrid. What does that all mean? This anime makes you go, “wtf am I watching?” Yet, at the same time, you cant stop watching it.
I’m sure by now you’ve already seen the first three episodes. So I’m not going to bore you with any synopsis. Yeah yeah blame me for being slow. I’m just going to jump straight to why I think this show is so awesome.

The art. It’s amazing. If there’s one thing Sunrise does well each and everytime, it’s the animation quality. What’s more amazing it that this is in no way a serious show. It’s layed back and ridiculous, yet it sports some of the most amazing animation.
The references. This is full of them and they’re fricken hilarious. It makes everything seem familiar yet alien at the same time.

Actually, now that I think about it, that’s pretty much it. Two reasons and this show is awesome… hmm… I guess when you get the formula right, it doesn’t really matter what ingredients you use. Anyway to prove this is actually a mecha anime, here are the mechas.
I swear I’ve seen this design somewhere before

This show better not get all serious, because it’ll kill off all interest I have for it. Also, no I will not blog this, it has far too much going for it to ever require my crude attempts at humour I pass of as reviews.
Poof… so much air resistance in space
