    Ive watched the first three and i like it. Its different. Its not just a magical girl anime nor a mech anime. And the main characters are pretty complex so its interesting.

    I like this one. The character development is really good. Funny thing is the high class gal looks an awful lot like aki-lucky from wixoss.

    Okay okay, I had to watch the first ep to see what this is all about. There seem to be a bunch of angry elitists here, at least to start with. I am left with one burning question, are pickled prunes really an item?

    No clue :D

    I do like that its not a typical magical girl series. Combining mech and magical girl is brilliant! What i like is they are actually giving a lot of background but not in a heavy handed way.

    Not heavy handed on the background stuff? It’s more like pulling teeth, all the secrets are let out one tiny bit at a time. On top of that it’s a super secret society where you need to forget who you are to avoid persecution. Okay, it will all be figured out in the end, right?

    Guess I’ll never know about the pickled prunes, maybe something got lost in translation. Reminds me of Log Horizon where everyone’s favorite treat was a red bean bun. In my mind all I could think of were kidney beans baked into a bun which sounds disgusting. Probably just another translation error.

    I was at a Japanese cultural event at a museum this year and had some version of a bean thing. It was basically a pancake with a paste of the mix on top of it. It was very sweet and quite good. It wasnt like boston baked beans or anything like ones youd have at a bbq.
