After a long hiatus, finally another post.
The human cast is pretty interesting too, and they're written to feel like real people caught in a confusing war where they have minimal control over what happens. The stand out, and my favorite character is Akane who is a very well liked and respected student in high school, but, is actually the co-creator of the kaiju who are terrorizing the city. She's very, very petty, but also really likable. She has a charm and really does a good job in following in the steps of Syd Forrestor, the character from the live-action SSSS from the 1990's.
So far I'm only three episodes in, and I'm really looking forward to the rest of this show. I'm rooting for Akane every step of the way, but I hope Gridman fights hard too.
