Pilot Candidate


Recommended Posts

[size=1][color=darkred]Hi, I thought I would dedicate a thread to Pilot Candidate, or Candidate for Goddess. I saw the anime on Adult Swim way back in the day when they had Tenchi, and Outlaw Star. Anyways I really liked the series, though I never got to watch it all until recently when I picked up the complete collection. The thing is the show isn't so complete, it only has 12 episodes. I don't know what happened but I've liked what I've seen so far and it bugs me it is so incomplete.[/color][/size]

[size=1][color=darkred]For those of you that don't know, the story mainly revolves around a pilot trainee Zero. Zero is part of G.O.A. which trains pilots which are pretty much all male (there is a reason for this), giving them them small chance to become on of the 5 Goddess pilots, basically the elite and frontline of the battle. Each pilot is assigned a Repairer Candidate, who are pretty much all female to my knowledge. The repaires keep the mech's in good condition, while also providing support for the pilot. All in all the show switches back and forth between Zero's training and social life, and the 5 goddesses war against victim.[/color][/size]

[size=1][color=darkred]The CG in the show reminds me alot of Geneshaft, lol the story does a bit as well in some aspects. But I think it is well done, I wish Bandai would finish the series. I wanted to see what some of your opinions were on the series, as well as being able to discuss the show.[/color][/size]

I never saw much of Candidate for Goddess on it's Adult Swim run, but I liked what I saw. It's a pity that they didn't keep it--I didn't know that until now, actually. :animeswea I just thought that I missed it because I was in Middle School and needed my sleep!

I have, however, read a few volumes of the manga and I liked what I read. It's definently a series I want to finish. Of course, it DOES have mecha in it. Therefore I have to finish it!
