It is very difficult to care about a world when we do not have much idea about what the world look like.

The pilots proved very much interesting. Each one has a complex and grown relationship with people.

There are plenty of personal issues beside the idea of piloting their mechs that they will have to work around.

In the best mecha series the moments of fight are just a channel for the characters to show their strongest emotion .

The fights in Gen Lock are very much nice to look at ,very much nicely planned are nicely choreographed by director Grey Haddock.
