Fairly good
24 July 2003 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

Watched Stage 1 and Stage 2 over a year ago and first of all I gotta say the spacebattles are simply breathtaking, some of the best I've ever seen in any anime. The series relies heavily on fan service too, in the form of the scantily clad women we see so often in anime. The plot is OK, it kept me watching, didn't it? :) As for the best anime ever, it is not. But it is entertaining, despite some annyoing characters that got to me. I give it 7 out of 10.
