When I first got this, I just wanted to see some Mech robots beat the living daylights out of each other. The first few episodes satisfied me with some heroic comebacks and punch lines, but as the story progressed the theme changes drastically, which really caught my attention. You start wondering who are the good guys and who are the bad guys? But even this is not the best part of the anime. I personally loved the way the story was depicted pictorial with as little narration as possible and this gave a whole new dimension of understanding. Yes this technique has been used countless times but I found this exceptionally good. I recommend watching this anime just for the directing alone. If you feel like watching a Mech fight Gun X Sword is satisfying. Eventually even you will be hooked on to this brilliant anime. You have been warned!!!
