Review: Jinki Extended


Plot Summary: Aoba is a young girl who loves to build models of robots. She lived alone with her grandmother until her grandmother passes away. Shortly after she is kidnapped and brought to a secret base where she discovers a huge robot. The piloted robots fight against Ancient-Jinki in The Grand Savanna, but the true meaning behind the fights is hidden. Aoba works hard at the base so one day she can pilot one of the robots and discover these secrets.

Mecha anime sometimes follow a usual theme, and its very entertaining watching the use of powerful mechs. But this anime takes a completely different angle, and its all about the pilots and the lives that revolves around them. This anime does a little jumping between lives and you move from the main characters to other characters who become the main characters as its phasing through. Between Aoba and Akanao the story shifts and then it unites them in the end, at the end all the pieces come together like a good story should, and I really like that. Towards the end its about the team, and what each and everyone of them is fighting are fighting for, two sides to the same coin. I really enjoyed this short and sweet anime, it was only 12 episodes.
