Lagrange: The Flower of Rin-ne Season 1 DVD Review
Much like Puella Magi Madoka Magica, Lagrange: The Flower of Rin-ne is the kind of series that starts off saccharine sweet before eventually expanding into and hinting at something darker and more angsty. While Lagrange doesn't quite reach the same depths of unbridled despair that PMMM does, it manages to still be deep enough to counteract its otherwise derivative veneer. This isn't just another mecha series.
Madoka Kyono is a good kid. She is the sole member of her schools 'Jersey Club' and makes it her mission to help people in any way that she can. She goes so far as to wear her bathing suit under her clothes at all times, just in case. So when she's approached by a mysterious girl named Lan to pilot a giant robot in order to protect her home town of Kamogawa, how can she say no?
Overall this first season is entertaining, well animated and promises a great deal. Also, Lagrange features some verrrry catchy OP and ED themes by Megumi Nakajima and an incredibly well animated OP sequence which I watched for each episode it was just that pretty.
Lagrange: The Flower of Rin-ne Season 1 is available on DVD now and Season 2 is available for pre-order.
