Quotes

[Japanese opening song]
Chorus: These days I don't know where I've come from / I've forgotten the ways of love, 'cause it's been a while / Everybody come on! / For us, life is a matter of five minutes' introspection / You're real pushy, but when your jewel is taken away, Your beauty is touched by sadness / Sometimes with a wild sha-lalu-la, we send tears flying / Looking at these shooting stars, it's simple: We're all human / Viva Tears! It's okay for them to flow, baby / They're not wasted / I can't ...

Wantanabe doesn't disappoint. Very funny.
7 January 2014 | by See all my reviews

Hilarious and highly original animation. It's basically a parody of all those old, campy western cartoons, but with literally no restrictions on the content. In the first episode alone you'll see giant space battles, utterly absurd and colossal alien wars, supernovas, planets getting blown up... and huge floating boobies with also happen to be space stations. I was amazed at how much things escalated on the first episode - seriously the most trippy episode i've seen in any animation.

Lots of references to great western sci-fi's (especially in the excellent English dub), lots of silly humor, and some golden dialogue to pair up with the great character designs. I can tell this will be a fan favorite for many anime watchers.

One minor downside I was slightly disappointed in was the quality of the animation. It's not bad, but in certain scenes it gets extremely choppy. I am unsure if this was intentional or not, but for 2014, i'd expect smoother animations.

Overall, 8/10 - must watch.
