Yeah, I blogged this...But given my lack of posting and the fact others here may be intrested I've had extra enhanced thoughts on the show....

No Mok-Kos = -100000 points, and probably pisses off Net fans everywhere...OTOH I wonder if this means that Namco has forgotten about the second game, much like Macross 2 is swept under the rug. I mean it is a few months after the second game and they clearly used the first series art style and plot...

But beyond that the first episode was so-so, suffering from a bit of too much plot and a lot of off-screen stuff that would only be gotten if you played the game. The animation seemed very cheap as well in places, not having the oomph I expected in an opening episode. And Kos-Mos herself was only seen near the end...

Still, it's better animated than To heart: Remember my Memories. And I can see potential for a good series if the tighten things up and focus heavily on Shion and Kos-Mos. Or at least have lots of Mok-Kos cameo's...

Some people don't know yet that Mok Kos is an official character. That doll of it was a preview.

Actually, the very first shot of the opening show a horrible, horrible Yűki-Kos-mos that is not unlike our god, but yet not exactly her. Kos-Mok ?

Its interesting to note that it seems to follow the game as closely as other anime follows the source comic book.

Has any other (non dating) game based anime followed its source material so closely?

I DLed the fansub but haven't watched it yet. Does it make no sense like the game does?
