Cute,Very Cute
21 February 2007 | by Wingzero4uSee all my reviews

When I first watched the trailer on this anime on one of my Chobits volumes,I have to say out of all the cute anime I've seen, this one proves to be the best,and it was. When I started collecting this series on DVD,I was right. I really like this series,and it was amazing. My favorite characters in this show are:Mao,Misora,and Yuriko,and of course Mao's Grandfather,the Chief of Staff of the Ground Defence Force. But what this series really explains is teamwork is the most important thing in a show. It's very important to work together as one, and to be a part of it. Another thing that this series explains is that true courage is what we have to have,and to be brave and stand up for yourself,and defend. It was pretty cool that Michael McConnohie got to play the role of Mao's Grandfather. I also want to dedicate this in memory of Tony Pope,because he was a great man to do this show. So in closing,if you want something for you the kids,then this is the one series to get,and it's the best.
