It looks like its a romantic comedy with mecha and actions. Animations looks pretty slick too.

Sounds good to me.

I'll be checking this out. Always preferred mecha musume/THESE THINGS over straight up mecha. The designs look pretty damn awesome too.

Looks good. I'll inevitably compare it with Star Driver though, since the genres are similar.

Strange, I thought i made this thread a few weeks ago.... hmm, musta been on a different forum.

Anyways, I'm somewhat feeling the opposite to those above, the last Anime I watched that used that kind of / similar mecha design I didn't really enjoy. The CGI wasn't too good either, (for the other Anime). I'm hoping at the very least the CGI goes well in this one, if not, i'll probably end up dropping it because I do have quite a bit of trouble watching 2D Anime with a lot of CGI, especially if the main focus is CGI'd, such as Dragonaut.

If your curious, the other Anime I was talking about was Sky Girls. Fairly same mecha design and it's CGI'd.

Spoiler!

If by CosmicBreak you mean CosmicBreak English that is currently overflooded with large Artillery units that are practically giant, solid cannons, no, nothing like it.

But if you mean CosmicBreak Japan that's more than likely filled with Ivis and Ouka and Seraph Crimrose, sure!

For me, it reminds me of a mecha anime that I've watched briefly, which also has the plot of "the only guy who can pilot female-piloted mechas".

Can't really remember what's the name or whatever. Used to watch it on bus while on my way to school.

EDIT: Think it is Dual! Parallel Trouble Adventure.

The action scene is awesome as expected, but I can't see the school life side be anymore than your typical harem.

I'll watch it anyways.

CGI was a lot better than I expected. Will keep watching. Beginning fight scene kept reminded me of a danmaku.

The fight scene looks like CosmicBreak if CosmicBreak was turned into an anime, minus warring unions and no real mech units.

Houki is so lol. BORN THAT WAY.

Also, during the breakfast part, DOES ANYONE THINK THE GIRL IN THE YELLOW PAJAMAS SOUNDS REALLY FAMILIAR?
IT'S BOTHERING ME BECAUSE SHE'S NOT LISTED IN CAST LIST. ;_;

I expect a very predictable anime, but I'll probably watch it through to the end anyway. It's not often that you get a harem anime that is THIS MUCH HAREM. Literally only 1 guy. ONLY 1. All the girls want to jump his bones, so things can only get funnier, I think.

Quite an impressive first episode, in terms of the mech fights. I don't really dig how they are showing too much of the human body in the mech mode though. The face is like exposed, won't that be a weak point? And how the heck do they go into space? I do like the funnels though. IKE! FUNNERUS!

I am not too sure about the harem part (can it even be considered as one?), since it is quite obvious who he is gonna end up with, especially from the ED.

Houki is love though. Made me hnng hard.

It began as a space suit. In the scene cut-ins, it shows the giant astronaut-looking suits.
Of course, like real life, technology improves and all that jazz and it became something like the Olympics.
So it wouldn't matter if the face is exposed, because unless you want to get charged for murder, you aren't going to kill anyone anyways. Don't even know the nature of the sport yet anyways, sounds like kendo with all the mentionings Houki and MC's kendo club.

Who would want a sealed off pilot block if the pilots are bishoujo's wearing tight rubber suits?

They´re not event wearing a helmet during a real battle like in the first minutes. And even if these suits are mostly used for sports, one accidental misplaced blow and your head is gone.

Because plot armor prevents them from getting decapitated or the fact that this is anime, normal logic does not apply.

Because I'm sure how they were getting shot by that android(?) thing in the intro, they should have instantly died from the photons piercing through their armor or something.
Ever considered maybe the weapons were made sports-safe?
