Captain Earth – 1

This show has gotten me way more excited than it probably should have, honestly. But coming from those that made Star Driver, my hype guage is at total maximum. Like, that shit is broken, son. That meter ain’t tellin’ you the air pressure no more.

By the way, in case you weren’t able to tell from my previous entry, I’m intending to try a different blogging style; summarizing the episode was a lesson in tedium and I honestly didn’t enjoy this (This isn’t goddamn school, ok.) In addition, if you’re reading this it’s likely because you’re interested in the show to begin with or have already seen the episode or show in question, so you really don’t need the bloody thing summarized anyway. That said, expect this format from now on (including shows that haven’t finished like Nobunaga).

So what’s Captain Earth’s deal? Well, for one, who even is Captain Earth? I have no idea. Let’s talk about the episode, shall we? As far as intro episodes to mech shows goes, this one is pretty typical but still awesome. Much like Star Driver, the show takes place on an island. Uh, ok. It also involves MC-kun sneaking into a secret facility. Uh, ok, just like Star Driver. It also features sequences where the MC gets armed into mechs that is similar to the approvoise sequence in Star Driver. This lead Missi and I to speculate as to whether or not they take place in the same universe. As interesting as that would be, I don’t think that is the case here. Cybody’s in Star Driver were unable to approvoise outside of closed space without their supposed phase 4. Interesting similarities, nonetheless.

MC-kun’s backstory with the young boy was interesting and does spark curiosity as to who the boy is, even if it was nothing particularly special. The obvious bets would be that he’s an “alien” or “lab experiment”; my money’s on the former. Where do we go from here? Looks as though MC had inadvertently become the protector of the earth. I’m ok with this.

Please show me more.
