Why all the names? The original Japanese, the translation and then the name the powers-that-be decided the show will use for the West. LBX isn’t spun out of nothing, the anime is a spin-off of Level 5’s “Little Battlers Experience” computer RPG, and I imagine LBX is a contraction of that.
LBX Girls trailer
The two-minute preview gives you a good idea of the anime and the 3D-style CG battle scenes with mecha-girls in armour and short skirts taking on aliens.
LBX Girls will follow Riko, a young woman who starts the day by going out on a field trip and finishes it is transported to an alternative reality in which Japan is being attacked by the metal-based Mimesis.
Riko isn’t the only girl thrown into this reality, and together the new team have the planet’s very survival on their armour-enhanced shoulders.
