I was actually lukewarm on the series after the first two episodes (with episode one having a boring middle but was impressed by the train scene in the beginning and episode two beginning with what seem like 15+ minutes of recap) but when I finally finished the rest, I came to love it.

It's difficult to describe this show. In a way, it's very much structured like an opera--not only does it have great orchestral music specifically composed for this show, it also deals with BIG melodramatic themes in BIG tragic fashion. And the thing is, even though it does deliver some really nice GIANT ROBO action, it's really actually a superhero show like JL/JLU.
