For an original anime , Star Driver has impressed me in several ways. One such way would be the art. For an original show, churning out new mecha designs week after week may seem like an arduous task, but BONES seems to have done it – BONES no less.

–Pretty ironic that for an organization called ‘Glittering Crux’, their costumes don’t really reflect this.
-This whole mask thing keeps reminding me of Lady Gaga for some reason. And I like it.
-Of all the section leaders, the only costumed leader who seems to fit his/her name is President, of Adult Bank.
-Although the leaders have nice costumes, you have to hand it to whoever designed their follower’s costumes:

-Looks peaceful, serene – but we know better. It immediately brings to mind the idea of a peaceful, secluded isle – albeit with cities.
-Some physics must have went awry in the design department . . .
–The mechanism used to operate the cybodies by the Glittering Crux looks the part. It almost looks like a direct rip-off of all the other mecha shows out there…
