This is an about an obsessive mecha otaku who dies and gets reincarnated into an Escaflowne style fantasy world with monsters and mecha knights.

The mecha otaku aspect feels a bit tacked on and gives the impression it's only there to keep this anime from being too generic. So far it doesn't seem like it has that much impact on the story and the main character could have just as easily have been someone who happens to really like those mecha knights and nothing would have changed. I also can't tell if the MC is actually aware of his past life or not. He mentioned the terms "robo" and "programming", but otherwise hasn't said anything about our world or his past life. All the same the first ep was kinda fun.

The mecha design is solid, and the battle damage looks good.

and then the trap is better at everything than anyone, and invents a gunblade. I'm not expecting much from the writing.
>> No. 29062 [Edit]
I wouldn't call him a trap, he's got a male voice and from the moment he appeared in that carriage they referred to them as a male.

look at this. look at this and tell me it's not.
>> No. 29068 [Edit]
Yeah sorry but I don't really see it, they just look like a young boy to me. There really isn't much there in terms of feminine features. The eyes aren't as stylized as they would be on a girl with long eyelashes and what not, they do have more color and detail to them than your average guy would get I admit. While the hair might be a bit long for your average boy it's not unreasonable for the setting, I saw guys with much longer styles in this anime. Their mouth also seems too large to be female, they tend to be smaller on girls in anime when not open.

It helps to compare it to the male faces. Though, as seen in the OP image, his eyes are larger than both the males and females in the series.

Just because the series hasn't yet used it as a gag doesn't mean his character design isn't a trap.
>> No. 29071 [Edit]
I don't think it's that unusual for a main character to stand out more and have more detail than no name side/background characters, combined with him being much younger than them, but I see your point and can understand why someone might think they're female. I suppose his friend did confuse him for a girl when they first met now that I think about it, heh.

Sounds like fun.

Okay, I guess he really is supposed to look like a girl after all.

It's hard to say whether the retarded and overused tropes combined with the 1979 style of narration is supposed to be tongue in cheek or just a really bad homage.
>> No. 29282 [Edit]
I gotta say, the OP is really catchy.

I don't know what you're talking about, the voice work sounds horrible.

I like her voice, but the composition of the OP song isn't very much to my tastes.

The ED, on the other hand, is quite enjoyable.

She's too cute. She also seems very familiar and I can't put my finger on why.

It might be her Seiyuu. Ouhashi is voicing about 5 characters in stuff airing this season alone.

I think I'm going to settle on them being mostly tongue in cheek, and used to handwave completely skipping large amounts of LN content to progress the story to the interesting stuff.

And now we shift from Mecha references to Danmaku references.

It's kind of amazing how quickly they developed that flying knight.
>> No. 29332 [Edit]
She's cute, but it's somewhat concerning how she gets strangely upset when Ernie is happy or excited about anything. Does she want to see him miserable or something? They're not married yet and she's already acting like his wife and trying to keep him down.

Do you think this mecha comes with a built in dreamcast?

Probably not, it has the Piano thing going on inside.

I'm getting whiplash from how quickly they're rushing trough the story here.

In only two episodes they introduce a power hungry nation, a country that gets invaded by said nation, the main characters save that country's princess, liberate that country, join it, and help them develop new technologies and weapons to defend themselves from further attacks. They also introduce a rival for the MC, a romance subplot for a side character, and they kill off one of the main antagonists. jesus...

True, the anime adaptation is going full speed in animating things.
