New Anime Series: Buddy Complex

First Episode(s) Review for: Buddy Complex
Summary:

The Schools “nice guy that is nearly super naturally good at everything” is tootling though his life being cool and nice to his friends when a giant mecha suddenly appears driven by a guy with a major hate-on, our hero is saved by a blushing female class mate with her own Mecha (never mind where did she hide it, why is the damn thing pink), it turns out he is something major in the future and that the people with the mecha are time travellers, will he fulfil his destiny? lets us fly to the future to find out!

Animation:

Excellent quality semi realistic, a mix between full realistic such as Ghost in the Shell and semi flat cell such as A Certain Magical Index

Plot Potential:

This has the look of a “a good guy amazingly gifted with mecha who turns to evil, and then is saved from this path by people from the future”… errr…wasn’t this the plot for Megas XLR

Update: The plot does have more to offer which shows it self in the second episode when you see the “buddy complex” in action

Music:

It would appear the directors raided Michael Bays music cast offs

Reminds me of:

Well every Gundam series for a start, but more like Tenchi Muyo! War on Geminar with less harem and more shooting

Overall:

I don’t feel that this one is going to be more than a nice background anime, but its been a while since we have have a good mecha battle and the hero is a nice bloke so worth a watch.

Update: episode 2 adds more depth to the the series when the “buddy complex” comes into play.
