    "This is one of the best anime on Netflix that is available right now. If you think mecha anime shows, this is definitely one of the best ever made. Catch it now on the streaming service while it's still available."

    "If you're a fan of the manga and deciding on whether you should watch the recent live-action show, I'd say stay away and focus your attention on this anime instead. It's awesome and it's one of the best anime on Netflix that you can still catch now."

    "The show lives up to its name as one of the most bizarre anime that you can currently watch but in a good way. This definitely has its audience with male viewers but there's plenty of insanity that anyone would find amusing."

    "This show belongs to a lost genre of "big robot" anime that has seen fewer entries nowadays but it's one of the best examples of that genre. If you feel like reminiscing, give this one a try."
