Reception

Mania.com's Eduardo M. Chavez commends the manga on character design and the translation of sound effects.[14]

Theron Martin at Anime News Network commends the novel for "good extrapolation of future military tech" but criticises it for the author's "unsophisticated writing style".[15] Mania.com's Mike Dungan criticises the poor translation done by DrMaster. However, he commends the author for putting "mecha-fanservice" into the novel.[16]
