This reminded me of Angelic Layer, one of my favorite anime of all time, so I was looking forward to it. I wouldn’t say Busou Shinki met my expectations, but hey, it’s the first episode where it introduced us to what Busou Shinki are and what they’re used for. So I can’t fault it for it.
But it was fun though. The only problem I have with the Shinkis are those joints:
Specifically the shoulders. Can overlook everything else because they are well made, but them shoulders… ~_~
