Storyline

The story is set in the distant future. The land is ruined, and humanity establishes the mobile fort city Plantation. Pilots produced inside Plantation live in Mistilteinn, also know as the "birdcage." Children live there knowing nothing of the outside world or the freedom of the sky. Their lives consist of battling to carry out missions. Their enemies are mysterious giant lifeforms known as Kyouryuu, and the children pilot robots called Franxx to face off against them. For the children, riding the Franxx proves their existence. Written by ANN

One of my all time favorites
11 July 2018 | by tarletons15See all my reviews

Ok now that I have had a couple of days to digest I think it's time for my official review of Darling in the Franxx.

Darling is an anime that started a little slow and felt quite strange at first, but quickly turned into one of my all time favorite shows. Some of those episodes towards the middle of the show are some of the best episodes of TV I have ever watched.

Unfortunately the show took a dip in quality from episodes 18-22 when too much was done in a short time. (I heard this might be due to 2 episodes being cut from the show) Never the less, Darling recovered and ended strong with an ending that was beautifully written and brought back memories of one of my other favorite shows, "Chuck."

While it has it's flaws, Darling in the Franxx is one of my favorite shows ever, and probably my second favorite love story ever. The story was fantastic and the characters are friends I likely won't soon forget.

Darling isn't perfect but it got pretty close there for a while. I highly recommend it.

9/10 definitely worth a watch or two.
