Who do we think of as being the first to introduce the, “Anything above 0% is still a chance to win” cliche? I think of it being Gurren Lagann, but that might be naive of me.
Anyway, the super robot show from a place you probably didn’t expect. It’s not that weird. The Middle East still loves the hell out of some UFO Robo Grendizer, so a studio, Alter Ego it looks like, just decided that they can make their own. It looks a bit cliche and the animation doesn’t look top notch, but it’s probably going to be a throwback to 70 super style and 80s “save the city” drama which is not necessarily a bad thing. It’ll be interesting to see super robots handled by another culture that just happened to also grow up with a little Nagai in the morning. Also, the robot design is pretty nice and I love scarves on robots. Keep an eye out.
