Lagrange: The Flower of Rin-ne is a mecha anime series produced by Xebec and directed by Tatsuo Sato. The show was first aired on Japanese television in 2012 and later licensed by VIZ media for an English dubbed release in North America. The story follows a high school girl named Madoka Kyouno, who lives in the coastal city of Kamogawa. One day, she receives a strange call from a mysterious voice, which leads her to a secret underground lab where she discovers a giant robot known as Vox Aura. Madoka piloting the Vox Aura becomes the chosen one, designated to protect the earth from alien invasions by flying through space through Rin-ne, another dimension. Along with her friends and Vox Aura's AI, AI, Madoka battles against the alien forces to save the world.

The plot of the series is a classic sci-fi story, where giant robots are used as tools to protect the world from alien invasions. Still, Lagrange: The Flower of Rin-ne has a unique twist in that its focus is not so much on the war that Madoka and her friends have become involved in but with the individuals that are part of it. The show does an excellent job of blending action and comedy, giving it a light-hearted tone, making it enjoyable to both anime fans and newcomers to the medium.

The characters in Lagrange are entertaining and well-developed, with Madoka being a strong heroine who doesn't need anyone to hold her back. The other major characters, Lan and Muginami, add to the show's humor and depth. Lan is a mysterious girl from Kamogawa whose objective is unknown, as she is living in the same shrine as Madoka, while Muginami is a bubbly, ditzy girl who becomes more crucial to the show's story later on.

The voice acting in the series is one of the strongest points, with Kira Buckland providing Madoka's voice, Karen Strassman playing Lan, and Michelle Ruff taking on Muginami. They bring life to their characters, and their performances help to add to the show's comedic and emotional moments.

The series's animation is bright and colorful, making it perfect for younger audiences, but the intricate detail and smoothness of the action scenes have something for anime fans of all ages. The animation truly shines during the mecha battles, with Vox Aura looking incredible during its various forms.

In terms of music, Lagrange features an epic and inspiring soundtrack that fits the show's tone well. The opening theme song, "Try Unite!" by Megumi Nakajima, is up-tempo and catchy, invoking a sense of excitement for the show. The ending theme, "Hello!" by Maaya Uchida, is a more gentle and emotional song that provides a perfect close to each episode.

Overall, Lagrange: The Flower of Rin-ne is a fun and entertaining anime series that deserves a watch. It has a well-written story, likeable characters, and incredible animation and music. Fans of the mecha genre and sci-fi in general will enjoy the unique twist that the show brings to the genre, which focuses on character development and relationships rather than just action.

Lagrange: The Flower of Rin-ne is a series that is currently running and has 2 seasons (24 episodes). The series first aired on January 8, 2012.
