Dancouga Nova – 1

This anime belongs to the genre I thought extinct – the Giant Robo in it’s original form.
“Realistic” is an alien concept in said genre, and DN proves it from the earliest moments – hundreds of automated weapons wait for a grotesque invader mecha to destroy them all in a massive energetic attack whipped out of nowhere, without even making an attempt at shooting; two regular policemen barge in and attempt to arrest like ~20 mafia members, without surrounding the place before that; “pilot candidates” after getting kidnapped immediately know how to pilot their mecha and defeat the enemy with a perfect teamwork (and they’ve just met for the first time. If it’s THAT simple – why bother with those particular girls/guys?)
The only thing I actually liked is the OP song.
No way am I seeing more than one more episode of this.
