Mahou Shoujo Macross Frontier. That’s what I first though upon watching this anime. I actually had to wait for two episodes just to be sure, and I’m now pretty sure.
This anime is mainly all about the songs (and a bit of drama). The premier episode which featured the Macross Frontier-like concert was pretty awesome because I like how it was animated and its the first time I heard Nana Mizuki and Minami Takayama singing together, and lots of Nana Mizuki singing is pretty much enough to keep me glued although I’d like to hear more of Aoi Yuuki singing.
The plot which is “the world is in danger because of an alien threat” is pretty much generic, though fairly interesting. Its like watching Macross Frontier, except that you replace the Valkyries with futuristic looking magical girls who can harness the power of
Anima Spritia relics fighting the alien menace known as Protodevlin Noise, with lots of flashy stuff and singing in between battles (minus the love triangle because this isn’t Macross).
This anime is pretty cool and flashy and that plot hook at the beginning of the series is really intriguing, so I’ll be watching this and more Nana Mizuki singing is always a good thing in my opinion.
