During the construction of the Kurobe Dam, an ancient artifact was discovered, and so the United Nations Kurobe Research Institute was established. Intellectuals from all over the world gathered to study the object, and the children of those researchers attend Mt. Tate International Senior High School, including the institute head’s daughter, Yukina Shirahane. In the summer of 2016, a lone samurai once again awakens. – My Anime List

Everyone seems to be ignoring this, but it was one of my favorite shows of the season.

A mecha series with visuals this good should be a good enough gamble in the English-speaking markets to be worth a dub. It also has the unfortunate side effect of ending this block of episodes on one hell of a cliffhanger. Still, as mecha series go, this one is off to a pretty entertaining start.
Where this series shines is in some of the character’s relationships and tensions with their family and with each other. Some of the main characters are one-dimensional, but a handful of them are compelling enough to draw you into their struggles, making you cheer for them when they overcome a particular issue, and feeling for them when they are put down.
If you are a casual Mecha fan you will probably love it. If you are a mecha veteran there s a high chance you will like it or at least find it refreshing in some ways. If you don’t like robots turn off your PC before it bites you and stop reading

Long story short i recommend watching this series. I do hope to get another season, the ending really suggested a sequel but in the end who has the money gets screen time. I sincerely hope Kuromukuro gets the popularity it deserves and continues to entertain us
This is a show you save for a rainy day when you have nothing else to watch; it won’t fail you, but it’s ultimately a bit forgettable. You could do a lot worse. So congrats(?) Kuromukuro, you managed to draw the line in the sand that indicates what I’d consider to be the bottom line for an acceptable, tolerable, watchable show.
