Ginga Kikoutai Majestic Prince

In the latter half of 21st century, humans leave the Earth and begin to live in space. In order to adapt to the environment in space and deal with the hostile aliens in Jupiter, genetically engineered children called "Princes" are artificially raised and trained to be pilots of armed robots "AHSMB (Advanced High Standard Multipurpose Battle Device). This is a story about one of the teenage "Princes", Hitachi O Izuru, who studies in an academic city Grandzehle.

Mm, the first episode was alright I guess. In a nutshell:

Otherwise, the atmosphere is rather lighthearted for this mecha series. Some of the mecha designs are neat. I'm not 100% sure on who they are fighting against in space but the music in the background is nice.

I don't think it will be lighthearted all the way. They have updated the mood and characters to the current popular style but I believe at its core they have a serious story to tell. Well, they have 2 cour to do it - plenty of time... 

Mecha action is good but I still find the character design difficult to like. 

Not much of explanation about what they are fighting - we don't even know what the enemy is talking about.... 

Still unsure why it is picked by fans in Japan as the mecha anime most likely to sell the most this season (beating Valvrave and Gargantia).
