Finished series: Genesis Climber Mospeada

We finished watching Genesis Climber Mospeada, a rather old series (20 years!), that served as the basis of the 'New Generation' cycle of the Robotech TV series (which, incidentally, introduced me to anime). I have a lot of fond memories of the series: it was completely different from anything I've had seen until then -- and after all these years, the series is still charming, but shows its age.

The directing isn't really good, there are some weird cuts. The animation is so-so (some of the transformation sequences aren't really detailed), and the opening song is horrible. And still, the emotions of the characters carry the series. My fond memories of this series in its Robotech incarnation might have colored my perception, but klik liked it too -- so it can't be all that bad.

My verdict: a 8.5 if you saw Robotech, a 6.5 otherwise.

Fill out the poll! On friday, I will choose the story I'll write and expand on the world and themes. If you have questions, just leave a comment.
