Our Review : Just a quick review because there isn't one here yet,

I had high hopes for this series yet it fails on the same issues as the second movie...
The Cell shaded stuff/ci/visuals work well with all the technology but not with the human side of the story,
Their weapons and suits all look great, the action is well paced BUT
(be aware that I have only seen the first 2 episodes)
the characters and plot are kiddy grade
The cgi falls apart in the 'normal scenes' (even childish at times) and the plot is forcefully inserted (for example in the first episode we see how Briareos and Deunan had their terrible accident and search for their eden but no emotional connection whatsoever
So I will continue to watch but to me only the first movie had a good mix of story and visuals , this series (up until now) and the second movie are just a showcase of Shirow Masamune's talent

This is just for quick reading others will update and have better reviews
