Animation was really good when it was good, and otherwise not so much. See pic.>>11730232>>Very little happens if you're not entirely motivated by little girls kissing eachother and complaining about who gets to sex up which one.
What anime were you watching? The driving plot is about the war, not who gets to sleep with whom. Except for Aaeru/Neviril and Kaimu/Para, there's no implication of anything deeper than platonic affection for almost every other pair.>>11730296>>No, they openly make out on a regular basis.
No they don't. They just kiss each other.>>11730515
Yeah, I was kinda disappointed by the lack of focus on gender roles, and what we do see is so typical.
In other words, OP, Simoun isn't one of my favorite anime, but I enjoyed it and would reccommend it if you're into character-heavy series and not so much action.
