Subaru Ichinose loves his cockpit as, to him, it's like being in his mother's womb. Whenever he struggles to converse with his fellow pilots, his cockpit is the one place he can be alone. As the ace pilot aboard the Tiramisu, Earth Union's most important battleship, it is his job to defend Mother Earth from the threats that emerge from humanity's extended dominion spreading throughout the vast reaches of the universe. Armed with his personal mecha Durandal, Subaru must fend off encroaching foreign colonies as he struggles to protect his personal sanctuary from rogue fried pork skewers, suffocating backwards shirts, and unsolicited redecorations. In the year Space Age 0156, the fate of humanity rests entirely in his hands. [Written by MAL Rewrite]
Tiramisù begins as a rather aimless compilation of comedic skits that range from pretty damn hilarious to mildly chuckle-inducing; it ends pretty much the same way. The disappointing part is that somewhere in the middle they toyed around with introducing something reminiscent of an actual plot.I was genuinely interested to see what the show had to offer following the mid-season story developments. Unfortunately, the crew never quite figured out what to do with it.
Uchuu Senkan Tiramisù isn’t bad as is, provided you like the crude, dumb type of humor. For better or worse, it never lets itself get too serious. I just can’t shake the feeling, though, that it could have been so much better.
