It is a slow paced anime and on the outside, it seems like a typical slice-of-life show that keeps its head above water using Harem. Though that is true to a certain extent, ‘Ground Control Of Psychoelectric Girl’ also brings in some really subtle lessons throughout its 12-episode span that can be relatable for anyone who has gone through teenage years.
It truly shines bright with its main characters who have eccentric personalities and also a whole lot of depth to them. They are unique in their own ways and are constantly changing. If you pay close attention to the details of the dialogues and also to the structuring of various events in this show, you will surely be able to get a lot more out of it than you expect.
Overall, ‘Ground Control Of Psychoelectric Girl’ is definitely not for someone who is looking for something explosive and plot driven. But if you enjoy watching an anime that has a lighthearted feel, then this is one of your best options. It explores a set of relatable philosophies that one may experience while going through puberty and brings in some unforgettable life lessons that may seem simple on the surface but are actually quite profound.

Ground Control Of Psychoelectric Girl Season 2 Release Date: When will it premiere?
‘Ground Control Of Psychoelectric Girl’ Season 1 premiered on April 15, 2011 and ran until July 1, 2011 and within this span, it covers a total of 12 episodes. The anime has an average rating on most platforms and its sales after the first season have supposedly been good enough for a sequel. The only problem with it is that even after being quite popular back in the day, there is no demand for it anywhere. Usually, even the shows that are slightly popular, have a fixed set of fans who keep demanding for a season 2 on various forums and some even start petitions for these. But in this case, all the noise seems to have toned down and most anime viewers don’t have much hope that ‘Ground Control Of Psychoelectric Girl’ season 2 release date will ever be a reality.
Even then, it’s still not impossible, as every once in a while, new seasons of the most unexpected shows pop up and surprise their fans. So if you’re one of those Shaft Studio fanboys/girls, then you can expect an announcement in the next one or two years. But beyond that, it would be better to just leave this one behind and look for other similar science fictions anime shows.
