Tokimeki Tonight – 26

Hmm, after watching most of this anime I must say I like it even more.
Though it seriously lacks in the animation and plot complexity, it doesn’t fail to amuze and entertain me with innovative ideas, in those areas it wouldn’t lose to it’s far more famous rivals like Ranma 1/2. Hell, this is the first anime I’ve ever seen that parodied it’s own ending!

Dancouga Nova – 1

This anime belongs to the genre I thought extinct – the Giant Robo in it’s original form.
“Realistic” is an alien concept in said genre, and DN proves it from the earliest moments – hundreds of automated weapons wait for a grotesque invader mecha to destroy them all in a massive energetic attack whipped out of nowhere, without even making an attempt at shooting; two regular policemen barge in and attempt to arrest like ~20 mafia members, without surrounding the place before that; “pilot candidates” after getting kidnapped immediately know how to pilot their mecha and defeat the enemy with a perfect teamwork (and they’ve just met for the first time. If it’s THAT simple – why bother with those particular girls/guys?)
The only thing I actually liked is the OP song.
No way am I seeing more than one more episode of this.

Old anime that tells the love story of a vampire-werewolf half girl. Her parents insist she marry a guy from the Netherworld, but she is in love with a seemingly normal classmate, and of course there’s a rival girl fighting for his heart. Continue Reading Tokimeki Tonight – 4…

Venus Versus Virus episode 5 – dropped

February 9, 2007 at 8:09 am | Posted in anime, review, Venus Versus Virus | Leave a comment

At first this anime showed some pretty good points – interesting friends/love relationship, yuri possibilities and good action scenes – but it all quickly went down the drain.
I can’t help but compare it to the first arc of Bleach (before the trip to Soul Society), and
VVV loses by a landslide in all the important aspects – humour, character relationship, mysteries and fights. How the hell am I supposed to care for Sumire’s mind controlled friend if her previous screen time totals the whole five seconds? Attack on her “love interest” is the same kind – I don’t have the least bit of sympathy for him or her crisis, I just don’t know anything about him. Too much of previous episodes was wasted on 3rd rate fighting, and the main plot is simply boring. Not to mention serious plot inconsistencies that were in the third episode – like Lucia not seeing from the start that their customer was already dead and controlled by a virus.

Moonlight Mile 1

February 5, 2007 at 6:49 pm | Posted in anime, impressions, Moonlight Mile | 1 Comment

This anime hits the same vibes as Coyote Ragtime Show, although it lacks the 12 sisters fanservice. I’d bet it’s the same animation studio and at least half the stuff and cast is the same.
Plot summary: on the moon, some kind of moonbase is destroyed, and the lone survivor has to run 105 kilometers to be rescued. Her air supply is limited, and just as she runs out she stumbles upon a mecha unit. Unfortunately, it is not friendly. A huge ship lands and their commander walks out. Continue Reading Moonlight Mile 1…

Ugh, Mao,  why didn’t he die? Not good, creators-tachi, ordinary people tend to die after catching dozens of bullets with their body!
Lloyd was great: “why waste the time, let’s get to the marriage part!”. Continue Reading Code Geass 16…
