For me this was a through back to classic anine like Macross of Samurai warriors (main stream). It has all the prerequisites for most dramedy anime a mix of good guys bad guys a protagonist hopelessly at odds with his character. Some how funding himself surrounded by this odd collection of supporting characters. All of whom are made up of classic archetypes the grizzled old noncombatants, the quiet stable medical officer the gungho soldier. Than you have the girls demigod badass, wise wizard, than the traumatized victim that once she wakes up yet another badass. Look in short you want to watch an anime that has some laughs and drama not to mention some kick but animation this is for you if you are looking for something way more serious highlighting the horrors and trauma of war I suggest Beserk or if you want to go way back Royal Space Force: The Wings of Honnêamise. Trust me there is enough of the terrible Hell that is war in those movies to sufficiently depress you.
