Well this looks neat with the theme song and artwork so far. I hope it will be a 2 cour as there's quite a bit to adapt. Make it happen please, JC.

Can't say I was impressed by PV, but it's too soon to judge (for people who haven't read LN anyway).
Quote:
The story revolves around Objects — powerful, massive weapons that change the course of warfare — and Elite Object pilots. An odd Elite girl named Milinda meets Quenser, a student who aims to become a Object mechanic, with the soldier-in-training Heivia on a snowy battlefield.

I wish Games Workshop decided to make Warhammer 40K anime.

I hope the CG doesn't clash too much with the art style, since this is undoubtedly going to be CG-heavy. Liking what I'm seeing so far.

The synopsis is very misleading.It sounds like a "boy meets girl" story when they dont really interact with each other.

At least Princess isnt like Index, having her name in the title and barely doing anything.

People keep saying this, but they talk to each other quite a bit.

War just happens to be the primary focus of the series.

Doesn't look too bad so far. If anything, it's deviation from the regular LN adaptations will spur me to at least give it a try.

It's one of those light novels where, as you read it, you think, "this is so ridiculous, how are these two jerks still alive, I can't believe I'm enjoying this", and then you keep on reading it because now they're fighting underwater.

Which is to say, it's absolutely amazing and awful all at the same time. Highly recommended, even with the sleazy cover art.

It sounds like those 2 main guys act like they're a buddy cop duo, right?

The song is quite nice to listen to, and if you squint really hard, it will look like Toaru Majutsu no Index. *sigh*
