Ultra Cool,and Romantic
10 April 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When I saw the first volume of this anime on DVD on sale at a Music Store,I had to decide if I should see this series,or not. But after reading about it,I decided to buy it,and it was truly awesome. It was pretty cool with the 2 girls,and the boy with his giant robot. My favorite characters in this show are Himeko,and Souma.I do believe they are meant for each other. The robots in this series do almost look like the Gundams. Souma's robot is very cool,and powerful. But what this is really about,it's about Love,Reliability,and bravery. It's important to be with that person,and be kind to them. Reliability is to protect those who are in danger,and need help. Bravery is to never give up in what you believe in and to fight back. But however,this series is one of a kind. So if you see something cool,then this is the series to see. It's very cool.
