I just finished watching Gravion Zwei, a modern twelve-episode giant robot series.
It’s ridiculous. It’s over-the-top. It’s full of maids, giant robot combination sequences, fanservice, teenagers screaming their attack moves, and bickering teens who really love each other.
It is a perfect example of its genre. It is clearly pushing every genre convention to its limit. It’s entertaining. It’s trying so hard to be entertaining. It’s great, great fun.
And it’s gratifying to experience a creative work that knows what it’s trying to do, and does it completely and fully through to the final frame. Even if it’s “just” a cheesy giant robot show.
