It has it's funny moments, but it is mostly just shonen style manliness as a group of people adopt one man's dream to make a mecha anime that was years ahead of its time. It's more of a drama than a comedy, but in all the right ways that makes you feel confident about following your dreams. Well...as long as your dreams aren't, ya know, weird. Like the guy who followed his dream to breed an army of human gorilla hybrids in soviet Russia during world war 2...some dreams just ain't right.
Making mecha anime; now that I can get behind.
