I really enjoyed the short animation. I really hope that after the shorts we get a full feature anime or someone pastes all the individual shorts together like they did with Halo: Legends =)

Quick recap for those who didn't see it :

- Battle between Strarf and Arnval, Arnval gets shot down and crash on a truck.
- Cut to the human main, which seems to be a friendless transfer student with an interest in Shinki.
- Ends with said human finding Arnval.

From what we saw, I'd say both Arnval and Strarf are some kind of weapon prototype based on the Shinki toys that does exists in-universe, since Arnval was escaping from a big building that looks like the usual 'bad scientist lair' you can usually see in anime.

Still waiting for more to really form an opinion on the series itself, but the animation part, at least, is really sweet.

Another group has subbed it now, and comparing, their translation definitely seems better (the kid's narration midway through makes a ton more sense, for a start).

Translating various bits on Konami's summary...

This was a free preview of the series. Looks like it'll officially start on Sept 22, and will essentialy be PPV. Not that it'll likely stop the fansubbers.

My thoughts on the show itself?
Some really nice animation. The CG was noticeable, but they did a pretty good job of hiding it.

The fact that Arnval's chest was cracked means those fanartists who like to portray them as 'bouncy' are likely going to need a new excuse. :D I suspect I'm going to start classifying certain shinki's 'assets' as thicker armor. :schmetterling:

Those kids were JERKS. I mean, yes, he's new, but he's making an effort to be friendly. Snubbing him like that for no reason?

I get the idea that they're keeping the idea of the Mk2s being prototypes. All well and good, but how is Arnval going to properly armor up in her trademark gear if that's true?

Something's up with the Poll options. Going to take it down for now until I can figure out what happened.
