Mecha as a plot device. (Whole Series Review) by fdguarino January 5, 2004 - 8:41 PM PST

While this series would definitely be classified as a mecha (giant robots) series, it does not have much in common with most of the mecha series that I have seen before. In this series, the mecha seems to be more of a plot device rather than the focus of the story. The story revolves around James Links attempt to reunite his family and rescue his wife. The main mecha, Dolores, is just another member of his family. Overall, it is well balanced with a good mix of comedy, drama and action. I'm not a big mecha fan myself, but I did find this series enjoyable. BTW, Zone of the Enders Idolo is the prequel to this, you may want to rent that first.

A Refreshing Mech Adventure... by MScullari September 12, 2003 - 8:55 PM PDT

I rented this anime thinking I was getting something along the lines of Gundam or Blue my surprise I was wrong. This is not a Gundam type or Eva type Mech anime. Sure there are giant robots and space travel and the like, but ZOE is a different bird all together. ZOE is a MECH/SCFI/COMEDY/ACTION/ADVENTURE anime. Now I don't want to scare you when I say comedy..its not silly or stupid ( you know like bug eyed characters and all that kid crap) its more like just straight up one liners between characters and some funny ones at that. ZOE can be serious at times but never takes itself too seriously. It's just trying to give the viewer a good time with a little mix of everything. The characters are likeable, the story is enjoyable, and the art is pretty good ( a little more CGI would be nice). If you want epic Mech battles and intense mind bending story lines then go elsewhere, but if you want a good time with some fun along the way give it a try!
