Zoids anime exists purely to be an extended toy commercial, lol. I'm sure that is exactly what it is. The battles are awesome, though, and it has just as much production value as the shows themselves. Just shorter.
Not gonna lie, Episode 2 sucked pretty hard. Looks like tons of reused animation. Nobody wanted that Zoid to come back. Especially not as a shoe-in bad guy. The episode could've been amazing with just the Liger and Raptor. I'm not sure how they plan to bolster Burning as the savior of the Empire against the Republic if they can't even have it defeat their basic Zoids (Gilaptor) before Xeno comes around.
I'm hoping things pick back up in Episode 3, but was so excited to see where it'd go this time around. Felt like nothing happened, and it was more annoying "we're wasting time with this giant army when we know there won't be a scratch" scenes.
The fact that episode 1 can clearly communicate its idea whilst being in a language foreign to me is indicative of how bad episode 2 is.
That may be incredibly unfair but there are no shots contextualizing the conflict between the 2 (3?) armies, the reason for the appeaeance of the 3rd army, or the justification for the team up. Heck, the enemies themselves just "appear" and it then cuts to shots of Zoids dealing with them.

I'm gonna say I'm such a big fan of the Zero Grizis that I'm just happy to see it no matter what (I'm also thinking I may have to repaint one to actually match the anime color scheme), but yeah... I don't know what even happened here other than, pewpew, buy these toys, kids.
From what I've seen, HMMs often have complexity that could be left out and result in virtually identical model. Gundams have a great variance of kits from simple snap-tite models to the hypercomplex Real Grade kits. It would be nice to have something in the middle.

Makes me wonder how fast xenorex evolves, I'm guessing since it has few evolutions it could change back to basic stage, but thats aguess lol, I'm remembering how murasame liger had a restriction on it so it reverted back from prev form.
