ReviewsEdit

CloakedboltzEdit

This is a clever parody of the mecha genre, getting over and over the top as you get closer to the end.

NeitoEdit

This show is proof that we can still have good things.

thephotomanEdit

The show grows the beard really hard and really fast around the climax of episode 8. It just keeps getting progressively more awesome from there.
