Rinne No Langrange S2 Pre-Release Images

Jun 5, 2012 @ 12:18 CDT

Pre-release imagery of the second, sure to be sub-par, season of half-decent mech action anime, Rinne no Langrange, are available – exhibiting a few unimpressive mechanical creatures and females.

There’s nothing particularly noteworthy of the images, aside from the lacking artwork, as these pictures aren’t beyond those of the upcoming OVA. Not to mention, the series itself is horrendous, driven by nothing but spontaneous kindergarten level vocabulary and a lack of coherent reasoning, motivation, or purpose for action. One can however at least take salvation in that there’s far superior series to arrive in the coming season.

    As a huge mecha fan, the past couple of years has been depressing. Gundam Unicorn aside, it’s mainly been bishoujo/shonen angst with mechs serving only as a plot device.

    I haven’t seen the new Aquarion and only part of the old series but judging by your reviews it’s pretty good.

    I’m glad Lagrange was only 12 episodes unlike the horrendous Star Driver. Break Blade was enjoyable last year though.

    Here’s hoping Muv-Luv next season will deliver, its visuals certainly do.

      Muv-Luv is immensely popular – thus while I’d not be so confident to say it will be fantastic, I wouldn’t be surprised if it turned out so indeed.

      And yes, Aquarion EVOL is absolutely amazing.

      You’ve probably already watched Full Metal Panic, although if you haven’t, that’d be an exquisite title to try.

        Certainly have and hoping that the next chapter you posted about will end up getting animated. I thought the sequel, TSR, was particularly interesting.

        • Seven says:

          I hope it becomes animated as well – so eager for it, yet with such an extensive time-frame gap since the last installment, I wouldn’t want to hold my breath for it.

          And indeed, TSR was very interesting – the original FMP was the standard. It was like the perfect balance of everything, then Fumoffu came along, a complete gag-time affair which I dearly loved – then TSR, an absolute revolution.

          It’s one of the most serious stories I can recall having ever experienced, the emotion was so strong – all very powerful, and I love how neither of our two competing girls were left out in the end. Kaname is great – though I’d take Tessa, that OVA is divine.

          • avatar subby says:

            Tessa is a fine choice. It seems the original and Fumoffu! was animated by KyoAni, but TSR was done by Gonzo.

            I remember how TSR’s pacing was completely different from the original, not only because of shorter length but different director.

            As for Aquarion, should I jump straight into EVOL or take the time to view the original? (Also, lol at how Lagrange lies forgotten)

            • Seven says:

              I noticed the studio differences – I feel however both Kyoto Animation and Gonzo did very well. I generally don’t like studio or staff switches, yet both were superb in Full Metal Panic thankfully.

              As for Aquarion, they’re pretty interchangeable – if you watch EVOL, it’ll end up introducing season one history for you. I’d just start with EVOL – then by the end of it, you’re bound to want to watch the original.

    AQUARION! SPARDA! Is the best of best. You cannot beat the Shrade, Zessica, Amata gattai. Well, I guess you can, if the lame-ass dies.

    I actually enjoy this show. I don’t treat is as a mecha show at all. If I do it is in the qualified camp of Bishoju Mecha….Strike Witches anyone?

    • avatar subby says:

      I enjoy mecha-musume like Strike Witches and Sky Girls with all their fan-service. This didn’t really have enough of anything to satisfy me.

      Have to admit Madoka’s VA and her ~maru kept me watching to the end.
