Driven by some discussion on IRC, I realized that Star Driver was quite the misunderstood show. In fact, before I was defeated in a TF2 duel and made to watch it, I had quite the ridiculous perceptions about what it was about; so having personally bridged that dichotomy of reality I thought maybe it was worth writing about.
Generally when a show has giant mecha in it, it gets relegated to that genre (if you could even call it one) however Star Driver as a mecha show fails spectacularly. Instead the show’s real focus is in the character interaction and development — and that’s where it really shines. The dialogue is where the heart seems to be and if you want a great cast of characters Star Driver is definitely worth trying out.
Oh, and it makes ~fabulous~ actually work, for once. Ha.
