In the past there is a boy that were forced by his father to pilot a robot. The boy didn’t want do it initially. But because of circumstances, he must pilot the robot or a whole city will blowing up. Starting as monster of the week, ended as drama psychological, Evangelion is still remembered until today. Even though the main character is a bit hopeless and unlikeable sometimes.
Fast forward today, we got a boy who happily will go inside the robot and piloting it. This boy name is Ernesti Echevalier, a noble born that actually a reincarnation of Japanese mecha otaku. His friend called him Eru. While Eru physical body looks like a midget, he got a big dream. Building his own Silhouette Knight.
Just like most of parallel world or also known isekai nowadays, Eru ability and knowledge is quite broken. He understand magic fundamental in this new world is pretty similar with programming language. The knowledge area of his previous incarnation from.
Anime version blast through most of explanation and world building. They doing it to show the action scene as soon as possible. It’s pretty understandable since the setting or reincarnation to a new world offer no advantage in the market. Since it’s already done numerous time in the last five years.
After looking at CG mecha in action battling with giant bug, I think this show have great potential. Especially if you like mecha. Studio Orange and 8 bit doing a good job create appealing CG. It’s like I’m watching Broken Blade again. I actually like the concept of mecha using melee weapon and magic. Their magic it self right now not showing area of effect nor one hit kill. I’m not sure what will Eru develop later after he grasp more knowledge.
Eru is pretty much Gary Stu here. Not only he is very capable because experience of his previous life, he also cute as f*ck. WAIT A MINUTE. He is a boy right? Why I say the he is a cute.
Even I don’t know what the hell author thinking when writing this LN. He making a shota with feminine face as the main character. Even his friend acknowledged that he is too f*cking cute. Did I just say f*cking again? It can’t be helped. Right know I’m still not sure if Eru got d¡ck down there. His character design might turn off some people who want watching mecha series.
One thing that I found Eru entertaining is that he have little interest to girl. He also not trying to avoid them. It is just Eru basically a MECHASEXUAL. He almost doesn’t care what other people thinking about him. In his head most the time only thinking about building a mecha.
