So, MD Geist. Watched the first film.
Clearly it is a bunch of cool images put together into an anime. The animation is very strange and lacking, sometimes you feel that the animators didn't want to do that... the plot, well it is basic but sometimes it is hard to follow due to half of the info missing.
Some scenes are just hilarious, such as the guy getting both his arms cut, an absolute torrent of blood coming off and the guy screaming for a few seconds.
It was just easily the funniest part of the film. Then Geist allies itself with Colonel Krutz for whatever reason (I don't even see how he managed to say "yes" and "no" a few seconds after), the random three mooks leaving the girl (unimportant characters leaving for no reason), people barely having any personality except maybe for the girl and Krutz, the random skulls and spikes everywhere.
So yes, this anime's storytelling must have been made when drunk. And probably on other drugs as well. There. Don't try and apply Fridge Logic
to it. There's none.
But apart from that... The action scenes are pretty good (when the animation isn't Narm
incarnate), the music is awesome, the mecha/vehicle designs are both awesome and pretty interesting (the mecha boss's semi-organic second form was odd, but interesting, and reminded me of Evangelion, in a good way), the actual pictures are gorgeous, aaand the whole thing is overflowing with testosterone.
So yes. It was enjoyable to watch, and MANLY. However, the animation and odd models, as well as poor storytelling really harm it. This needs to be fixed, even if clearly this is meant to be just an action flick without much thought beyond it.
