YMMV / Super Dimension Century Orguss

  • Angst? What Angst?: Kei is told fairly early on that the Emaan get over death very quickly. And by "very quickly" we mean within two minutes.
  • Awesome Music: "Sky Hurricane" by Casey Rankin, 80's feel-good music with very catchy chorus that's Surprisingly Good English. "Where are you going, when are you coming home..."
  • Fridge Logic: How in the world do Emaan keep their population up when their females become barren by the age of 18? Leads into Fridge Horror when you form suspicions as to how...
    • Actually pointed out in-universe; the social stigma placed upon women who choose not to bear children is extreme, to the point that barren adult women aren't even considered women - showing any kind of desire to one is so unheard of that Shaya actually strips in front of Kei and is confused by his embarrassment. It's actually quite surprising that Poputei's twins are only infants, implying that she squeaked in right under the wire just like Mimsy does with Kei.
  • Narm: The Emaan recognize Kei as a "tokuiten" soon after his arrival. The word can be translated as "singularity"; Imagin Asian used "Idiosyncratic Point". US Renditions, the original English-language licensee for Orguss used... "Differentiated Idioblast" — a translation choice that would live in infamy.
    • One for Orguss 02. The one line used to finally convince someone to get on a train to safety? Rendered in the dub as "GO BEFORE I THROW YOU DOWN ON THE GROUND AND RAPE YA!" This line is something no one will likely forget about this entry, to the point where it's on Youtube, uploaded separately under the titles of "Worst line in an anime ever" and "The greatest line in anime history".
    • Another from Orguss 2: One of the characters "pretended to be mentally retarded for 20 years".
  • Signature Scene: Bordering on Signature Move, the Orguss' famous final Arm Cannon shot to the enemy's side. Shown during the climax of the opening song, it features as the Dynamic Kill of the Orguss' strongest attack in Super Robot Wars Z.
