Storyline

The story is set in the distant future. The land is ruined, and humanity establishes the mobile fort city Plantation. Pilots produced inside Plantation live in Mistilteinn, also know as the "birdcage." Children live there knowing nothing of the outside world or the freedom of the sky. Their lives consist of battling to carry out missions. Their enemies are mysterious giant lifeforms known as Kyouryuu, and the children pilot robots called Franxx to face off against them. For the children, riding the Franxx proves their existence. Written by ANN

Trivia

The Franxx pilots' names are all designated after Japanese words for numbers:
  • Hiro is designated 16 ("hi"-"ro", 1-6)
  • Ichigo is designated 15 ("ichi"-"go", 1-5)
  • Goro is designated 56 ("go"-"ro", 5-6)
  • Miku is designated 39 ("mi"-"ku", 3-9)
  • Kokoro is designated 556 ("ko"-"ko"-"ro", 5-5-6)
  • Futoshi is designated 214 ("fu"-"to"-"shi", 2-10-4)
  • Mitsuru is designated 326 ("mi"-"tsu"-"ru", 3-2-6)
  • Naomi is designated 703 ("na"-"O"-"mi", 7-0-3)
  • Ikuno is designated 196 ("i"-"ku"-"no", 1-9-6 - it's actually a Japanese pun as "ku" is turned around to read "no", just as 9 is turned around to read 6).


Zorome, who is designated 666, stands out as his name is Japanese for "repdigit", a number that is the same (11, 22, 33 etc). See more »

Great start for Darling in the FranXX
21 January 2018 | by xavierhugueninSee all my reviews

The winter season is well underway, and Studio TRIGGER has arrived on the scene with Darling in the FRANXX. In a world where children's only value is determined by their ability to pilot robots known as FRANXX, young Hiro, also known as Code 016, has seemingly lost this essential ability. Resigned to being dismissed to a worthless life, his life is changed when he meets a girl pilot, or "parasite", by the name of Zero Two.
