In the first few minutes I thought ‘Maybe they’re spoofing Macross Frontier??’ And then as the episode progressed, I realized, wow, they’re serious…And when the bugs came out I just forwarded randomly until the ending.
It felt like a copycat right from the start (though I don’t know the motivation for making this series). I’ve seen more awesome singing, more awesome character designs, more awesome animation from that other show. I don’t want to watch anything that’s been done better before, unless there is a compelling reason to. And I don’t feel any compelling reason to watch this SymphoWTF.
So yeah, this is the first winter show to be cut from my to-watch list.
P.S. I totally forgot to post what I want to check out:
