Condensed Review: Soukou no Strain

Blonde hair and a red mecha make Sara a bit of a Char.

Blonde hair and an unusually fast red war machine?

Pros and Cons

+ a hint of Gunbuster in the DNA
++ Frances Hodgson Burnett is spinning in her grave
+ CG mecha which manage to look good (they’re intended to seem ethereal)
– too much exposition in one place
– fanservice spike not closely tied to the plot
– music leaves something to be desired

Supplementary Remarks

-+ comedy lesbian: not sure if want
+ waiftastic Sara is waiftastic
+ hotbloodedness and screaming

Verdict

Interesting if somewhat disorganised. Mediocre.

Did I Like It?

Yes.
