Less mecha, more plot

by Phillip Thorne on 10/23/2006

Volume #5 is about story and character development, with no giant-robot combat. There are now four sides in the conflict: Riofald is on its way. The psych-war efforts by each side continue. Gun is settling into his role of media-hero; Grampa Hosuke is still a callous, pragmatic bastard; the harem is so confident of the outcome that they amuse themselves with cheerful frou-frou. Isaka the android displays new abilities. There's a touching interlude with Miss Kin'ba, the Riofaldian high school teacher surrounded by hostile Earth students. // The art (clarity of line and tone, placement of panels and balloons) is first-rate. // "CGE" continues to be a serious story with "adult themes and language" -- it's like a late-Heinlein novel, with pictures. Two of the characters consummate their relationship. (Manga purists have howled that the US version has been bowdlerized, but it's still obvious what's going on.) There's plenty of fan-servicey gravity-defying nudity. // The technical appendix in this volume gives dimensions for the Exaxxion (523.6 feet) and various Riofaldian mecha and vessels.

Product Overview

Life has started to look up for Hoichi Kano. Sure, he's earth's only hope of resisting an insidious alien colonization-slash-invasion. Sure, he's had to deal with the fact that every time he uses his super-powered gunsuit or the mighty robot Exaxxion to fight them, but every high school student has issues, right? Now, Hoichi is kicking butt and it looks like he has the Riofaldians on the run. He's got the girl, the guns, and his father on his side. What more could a hero need? But in the shadow of a tenuous cease-fire a battle still rages. With so much propagandized mud being slung, will anyone know who the true enemies are at the end of the day? And will anyone notice just how close the Riofaldians are to breaking through the Kano family's defenses?
