Interesting ideas but some unanswered questions
23 June 2009 | by etg1701See all my reviews

As something of a fan of mecha anime, I have long planned to watch this series but only recently found the opportunity. Though quite brief, only a dozen or so episodes, Soukou manages to present some nifty implications of time dilation as well as some strange concepts (like Emily and her people). Unfortunately, its short length leaves little time to explain the setting in detail and by the end many questions remain unanswered. We never learn much of anything about the Union and the Deague, for example, and many of the technologies and ideas introduced get little explanation. Some of the comedic antics also hinder the show at times, as they seem rather out of place in such a grave situation.
