Plot:

The story is set in the distant future. The land is ruined, and humanity establishes the mobile fort city Plantation. Pilots produced inside Plantation live in Mistilteinn, also know as the "birdcage." Children live there knowing nothing of the outside world or the freedom of the sky. Their lives consist of battling to carry out missions. Their enemies are mysterious giant lifeforms known as Kyōryū, and the children pilot robots called Franxx to face off against them. For the children, riding the Franxx proves their existence.

A boy named Hiro is called Code:016, and he was once known as a prodigy. However, he has fallen behind, and his existence seems unnecessary. Not piloting a Franxx is the same as ceasing to exist. One day, a mysterious girl known as "Zero Two" appears before him. Two horns grow out of her head.

Episode 1
I'm reserving my judgement, because so far it looks generic as all hell.

Episode 1

Looks like a fair bit of fun.
Spoiler:
Not a fan of the face on the robot for now.
Move like lightning, sound like thunder.

Episodes 1-2

Not a huge fan of the visuals in the show, but it's an interesting concept that has potential. Nothing too special, but I'm liking most of it so far. As long as those silly robot designs don't show up too much. ::sigh::

Spoiler:
Man, poor Ichigo. Andrew gonna have some things to say about that kiss rejection scene. lol.
