"Well that was unexpected. I went in expecting 23 minutes of mechs duking it out with dragons. What I got however was one of the hardest hitting anime series in years, throwing me completely for a loop with its no holds barred tale that isn’t afraid to challenge its audience.
Cross Ange: Rondo of Angels and Dragons comes from the minds behind Valvrave the Liberator and Gundam SEED, both great anime series in their own very different ways. Cross Ange definitely has the right pedigree behind it and this first episode wears it like a medal of honor."
