Let's get a few things out of the way first. This is a Gonzo anime, which means I would probably go through the WOW(great first half) HMM(things start slowing down) WTF(Gonzo messes things up) MEH(Disappointment) cycle all over again. Secondly for some reason or another, everyone in the SOS Brigade is here; that's right, that means Aya Hirano, Tomokazu Sugita, Yuko Goto, Daisuke Ono and Minori Chihara are voicing the main characters, although this time, the latter two take centre stage and are doing the core male and female protagonists' roles.
Anyway, seeing as how I'm still currently at the WOW stage, I was quite impressed with the first episode, as it showed plenty of potential, although not much was explained. It begins with Jin, who bids farewell to his best friend Kazuki, and is about to leave for space on board a shuttle, piloted by the former's father. As the shuttle takes off, 3 asteroid-like fragments being shot off a larger asteroid and are on a collision course with the shuttle. Without warning, one of the fragments crash into the shuttle, destroying it. We then see Jin falling from the sky.
Fast forward into the future, Jin is now a bitter shell of his former self and sporting that trademark emo Sasuke haircut for good measure. By now, the asteroid incident has prompted action from the government and thus Lindblom Unit of the International Solarsystem Development Agency (ISDA), an organization in charge of dealing with this issue, was formed.
Just as Jin is heading to school, he is stopped by a reporter, Yonamine Kou, who recognizes Jin as the sole survivor of the incident. Jin ignores him and walks off. Just as he does that, Kou notices a girl by the street and attempts to take a picture, but only manages to capture a very fuzzy image.
We turn our attention to Kazuki, who is taken to some kind of research facility where he physically interacts with an embryo of a dragon-like creature....
Elsewhere, Jin, wandering in the city, encounters a large brutish creature attacking a woman. Shocked and scarred for his life, he flees, prompting the creature to chase him. Just as Jin reaches a dead end at the top of a building, he is attacked by the creature and is sent falling off. He then recalls the exact same thing occurring, when he is rescued by a mysterious pink haired girl who also fends off the creature. Jin regains consciousness and finds himself alone with Toa, his savior, who is actually a Communicator(whatever that means)
So, a lot of things take place in this episode alone, which has left me confuzzled. Judging from the preview, it would seem that Jin will reunite with his best friend Kazuki and they will join the ISDA to fend off an unknown threat, which isn't limited to the asteroids. Also judging from the title, I'm also guessing they will harness some kind of powers from the dragons which will give them h4x ski11z along the way. Very interesting. I'm not going to learn my lesson and will give Gonzo a benefit of a doubt, hoping they will do wonders with this. Shin out.
