First Look @ Sora wo Kakeru Shoujo

Episode 01 (6/10 - Good)
Wow. This was weird - not FLCL weird, but weird. My first clue that this was a strange show was when that little yellow person popped out of the android. The character designs are so-so; I usually don't like weightless hair. The colors, coupled with the writing, makes it kind of fun. We have the director of Mai-Hime. No wonder, huh? I'm actually contemplating watching the rest of this - partly to know what on earth is going on. Something about it reminded me of Gurren Lagann, which I loved. It's not on that level yet, though. About 4/5th of the enormous cast wasn't introduced, they merely showed up onscreen. Is it just me or does that girl in the last screen cap look like a character from .hack//sign?
Suggestive Content:
I had heard this was a fanservice anime, but though the skirts were short, there were no panty shots. Itsuki's piloting outfit is rather bawdy. A few shots accentuate Akiha's bottom.
Animation: 6/10
Characters: 6/10
Writing: 5/10
Pacing: 8/10
Enjoyment: 7.5/10 (Surprisingly high.)
