Tytania: War and Politics

Currently finished: Episode 12

Animes about politics have always been a neutral ground for me. I usually don't have any big expectation for it nor do I hold any prejudice against it. In most cases, it's either a hit or a miss. In the case of Tytania, it's definitely a hit.

The plot, in my opinion has never gotten intense enough in order to get excited about. However, each and every event always manages to set a forward motion on the soon out of control chain reaction that you would get excited about. I like this kind of subtle approach very much.

Some Gundam series are focused greatly on politics as well, however, they always manage to put a greater focus on the Mecha technology, that's why I never liked any of them. Tytania on the other hand, puts no focus on technology, and the scifi environment is merely a convenient setting. The real focus is on the politics. I like that.
