Type: Breaking Through to the Heavens anime

Synopsis: Simon (the digger) and Karima (the loud mouth) live in a cave city, find a little mecha, use it to fight a bigger mecha with the help of Yoko (the scantily clad). Together they escape the underground and form a rebel band to fight against the evil beastmen that have taken over the world. After that, they rebuild the world and have to defend it against the anti-spirals, civilization’s greatest enemy.

Pros: Aw shiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiit! This show is so great. Its got insane macha fighting. Its got an inspirational message, its got a girl that never wears a shirt. What more could you want? The show has a bravado fueled by its own moral that you can’t help but admire. Its style, its action, its plot, all of it has a bad-ass attitude to it. (P.S. “Spiral power” means evolution)

Cons: No much to be honest. There are a few instances here and their where it gets corny on you (partly due to its inspirational nature). And for a 27 episode anime, it goes kinda fast, so be sure to watch ’em in order. Other than that, I wish Simon’s ending was happier. Its more bitter sweet that I would have liked. But eh, can’t win ’em all.

Watch it?: Do it. You’ll thank me later. (5/5)

MVP: Kamina

Kick Logic to the Curb and Do the Impossible!

Best Episode?: Ep. 27 “The Lights in the Sky Are Stars” (fight the power!)
