Really? I can't get over the excessive amount of adolescent male wish-fulfillment it jams in. The show's a borderline harem show, I only gave it the time of day because it was Sci Fi and animated by Trigger. Haha

I think it's funny that people would find that sort of thing funny?

I'm only 2-3 episodes in, can't say much to the story other than it being Pacific Rim + Harem. Isn't 02 just another abrasive waifu in a plugsuit? Idk, I think I just don't get contemporary Anime.  :shrug:

Well it's kinda hilarious. One might say it's a fanservice taken to the extreme for no other reason than being edgy. Some would say it's more of a parody. But I think this is a little bit more. I might be thinking too deep into it, but this might be really just a presentation how the most natural and strongest connection between man and woman is sex. And making the sexual relationship works move the robot, which is a functioning marriage that can beat any obstacle. It's still hilarious tho. Glad that Trigger never takes itself too seriously.

You're reaching and probably what a lot of Anime enthusiasts would go to say to justify what's clearly just gratification for the genre's biggest demographic. Lonely adolescent males.

It would be somewhat amusing if the show didn't take itself so seriously. This isn't Kill La Kill where comedic overtures make the concept work, the tone of the show just doesn't lend to it. The premise is so grave already, added with the protagonists self deprecating voice overs... even the interactions with supporting cast brought a bunch of srs-business drama. Yea no.

I'm sure underneath it all Trigger has some clever allegory to tell about young love and coming-of-age FLCL style but from what I've seen (which isn't much, 3 episodes) it's pretty tasteless.

What's hilarious is the people who laugh this sort of crap off as comedy. :lol:
