Ok I have to admit I am enjoying watching this little series.

I will say the English voice acting is HORRIBLE, the plot forced, but the mehca and military artwork is the thing about anime that is great.

Not a bad first episode. Thanks for the link.

I REALLY liked that the anti-mortar laser was invisible, instead of being a zappy-beam. Nice effect with it burning through the suit, as well.

The voice acting seemed intentionally bad. I mean, regardless of the script, the actors were obviously decent, but they were delivering their lines to sound as terrible as possible.

Warning some weird episodes follow.

The last one is a total Bleeped text ha ha moment of making fun of the genre.

I watched the whole series, the 2nd episode was really absurd, a bunch of UNARMOURED guys owerhelm an US mechanized force, only with some RPG? They really overstimate these machines' capacities, they aren't more protected than an ordinary grunt, and MORE visible.They could be useful, working with infantry support, on more hostiles environments, such as Urban or mountain, but reputing them a game changer is really a stretch.The story , otherwise, was interesting.

As I said very forced plot. =)

In the Episode 2 I believe the walkers were launching themselves onto the tanks and they had large land mines strapped to them. They bailed from the walkers and mines exploded.

I looked up the cost of limestone and at $30 USD bucks a ton and if life is cheap they can make stronger grunt. It would have been cool to have some carry 100mm recoiless rifles.
