Darling in the Franxx

In the distant future, the land is ruined, and humanity establishes the mobile fort city Plantation. Pilots produced inside Plantation live in Mistilteinn, also know as the "birdcage." Children live there knowing nothing of the outside world or the freedom of the sky. Their lives consist of battling to carry out missions. Their enemies are mysterious giant lifeforms known as Kyōryū, and the children pilot robots called Franxx to face off against them. For the children, riding the Franxx proves their existence.
A boy named Hiro is called Code:016, and he was once known as a prodigy. However, he has fallen behind, and his existence seems unnecessary. Not piloting a Franxx is the same as ceasing to exist. One day, a mysterious girl known as "Zero Two" appears before him. Two horns grow out of her head.

sure, you could say just another Trigger, but this was very well executed. Thoroughly enjoyable.


There's a bit too much pretentious moralising about male-female partnerships in this -- just enough to become a bit tedious. But the partnership concept has some interesting possibilities. Plus, when a cute monster girl goes skinny-dipping and comes up in right in front of a teenage boy with a fish in her mouth, that zooms right to the top of my "guilty pleasures" list. So now I'm hooked; I want to see where this is going.


After all these years, finally someone manages to make a fairly close copy of Evangelion, but with an interesting twist. There have been many shows since Evangelion that have tried to copy it, but I think this one shows the most promise.

The world is shown as some kind of post-apocalyptic earth, as opposed to modern day. Once again, we have a generic wuss male lead who finds he has to pilot a giant mecha to save everyone.

All that having been said, this is showing a lot of promise. I hope they manage to make this into it's own thing, instead of looking like an Evangelion clone.

Michael Eh?

Give to TRIGGER to deliver a solid performance.
