Stares at the key image for a while.....



Waiiiiit.......HE?!!!!! That is a guy? Well, at least his harem only consists one guy, one obligatory childhood friend girl and one blonde (according to the trailer), so at least we aren't wasting too much time on rom-com stuff and go straight to mecha action

For more - it's a guy voiced by Rie Takahashi. Man, that is friggin' hilarious from the beginning.

I've read the source novels.
Can confirm the story has little to no romcom stuff; has heavy emphasis on mecha development, mecha technology discussions, and lots of mecha action.
Any romcom extras will be anime original.

Her Rampo Kitan character was a feminine trap who easily mistaken as a girl. But the main protagonist that being the chick magnet, even with the girly looks, voiced by her? That's simply hilarious.

Man, the title sounds way too generic but the pv actually looks kind of cool. The main guy does look seriously feminine though.

He is pretty young so that has a lot to do with it.

Yup. Just like the manga and novel, the MC is a cute boy who looks girly-like.
Can't wait to watch this.

Outside of gender-bender* or they can use a really androgynous/boyish voice, I don't think it is a good idea for a 13+ anime boy to be voiced by a woman (dub or subbed). That said, this seems totally appropriate to have a women voiced our main guy.

*including being reincarnated as the opposite, spending a decent cross-dressing, or having
an androgynous/effeminate/masculine look.

i thought the main character had a twin, at some points in the trailer he looks like a boy, others he looked like a girl. Razz
I was really confused. Shocked

It's a pity main character isn't actually a girl considering an absolute dearth of female-led, non-boring mech shows nowadays.

The Manga is already hinting at romcom stuff, so not necessarily anime original.
