<i>Gasaraki </i>is probably the most underrated and under appreciated anime I have ever seen. As the show opens, we get a unique opening theme called "Message #9". It's a very pretty, electronic and experimental song; very similar to Bjork. Hell, the OP could've been written by Bjork. The anime itself blends with science fiction, politics, mysticism, Shinto, and Noh theater. Our two main protagonists are Yushiro Gowa and Miharu, and both happen to be pretty strange yet interesting. Yushiro is the fourth son of the wealthy family, the Gowas. He is a young Noh dancer who has been brought into the military at the age of 15 to pilot mechanical robot called a TA. He's very quiet but he does develop a bit as the series progresses. MIharu is a young girl who is a test subject to pilot TAs, just like Yushiro. Their chemistry together is intriguing, and their screen time together keeps me hooked. Although, I would love to see them develop a bit more. I don't know why, but maybe I feel that 25 episodes isn't enough. I hope one day they reboot the series so we can dive into them more, because I find Yushiro and Miharu to be extraordinary characters and they deserve more screen time than the rest. A lot of people complain that this anime is too boring because of the political aspect, and I don't blame them. I'm not a big fan of the political sub genre, but blend it with science fiction and Japanese culture, then it will be very interesting. A lot of people also compare <i>Gasaraki </i>to *Neon Genesis Evangelion*, just because they're both mecha. That's like comparing <i>Evangelion </i>to *Gundam*. The problem with <i>Gasaraki </i>is that it came out at the time <i>Evangelion </i>was popular. If they reboot it now, maybe it would deserve more praise. Overall, I enjoyed *Gasaraki*. If you are a die hard mecha fan, you will love this. I just hope they reboot it for a new audience.
