Anime Blog 64: Final Fantasy: Legend of the Crystals

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Final_Fantasy:_Legend_of_the_Crystals

Alright, Final Fantasy: Legend of the Crystals (LoC) is a 4 episode OVA that I watched subbed.

Let me first start out by saying that before I watched this, I beat Final Fantasy V (which this show is the "sequel" to)...And when I say beat, I mean MAXED EVERY JOB CLASS! on top of defeating the game...

So, when I watched this. About a minute or so in all I could think was "EVERYTHING I WORKED FOR IS RUINED! WHYYYYYYYYYYYY!!!!!" and so on and so forth...

The plot here is years after the end of FFV, the world (or I should say, the crystals) are in peril again. It's up to the descendants of Bartz to save the world (AGAIN). All-in-all, I don't see the point of this show. It was 4 episodes of "well you beat the game but then there was this bad guy who totally destroyed your peeps and is back to destroy the world...blah blah blah..."

If you can't tell I wasn't really a fan here...

So, to move on to the SERIOUSLY 90's art:
Prettz and Linaly (She's Bartz's descendant)

Seriously...what kind of chocobo is this!?
 

My real peeps! L:R:B: Faris, Bartz, Galuf. F: Krile, Mid, Cid, and Reina)

So, Pros and cons

Pros:
  • Final Fantasy related
  • ...Linaly's cute
Cons:
  • It's existence
  • The whole "glowing butt" thing
  • ALL MY HARD WORK FOR NAUGHT!
  • ...art??? (idk about this one)
So all-in-all, just leave it alone...

Thanks for reading! Until next time,

Anime Blog 63: Hybrid Child

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hybrid_Child

Hyrbid Child is a 4 episode Shonen-ai OVA series (subbed) by the same creator as Junjou Romantica.

I watched this fairly recently on Aarinfantasy. I really enjoyed it.

Each OVA follows a different couple (excepting the last 2) but they all connect in the end. The "Hybrid Child" is a machine that grows like a human the more love it receives. Each couple deals with this in different ways. The first being between a young boy (Izumi) and his hybrid child (Hazuki) who's life is running out. The second being about a swordsman (Seya) who is trying to cope with his actions and his hybrid child Yuzu. And finally the last 2 focus on the creator of the Hybrid Child (Kuroda) and his inspiration/best friend Tsukishima.

It was really cute and VERY sad. I would seriously recommend it to shonen-ai fans :D

So, what really matters. ART!
(T-B, L-R: Tsukishima, Kuroda, Yuzu, Seya, Hazuki, and Izumi)

You can totally tell it's by the same woman as Junjou Romantica...look at the chins... (lol)
I chose a picture with all the characters so sorry it's not the usual type of picture :D

Pros and Cons:

Pros:
  • Shonen-ai
  • Beautiful story
  • Good art
Cons:
  • Sad
  • NEVER WANTED IT TO END!
Which aren't real cons anyway :D

Well, thanks for reading!
Until next time,

Anime Blog 62: Holy Knight

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Holy_Knight

Alright, Holy Knight is a 2 episode OVA that I watched subbed.

Because it's so short I don't really have too much to say about this show.

The story (from what I recall) goes something along the lines of this guy (Shinta) goes to a missionary school and a half-Romanian girl (Lilith) transfers in. He falls in love with her and then finds out she's a vampire and he's a descendant of vampire hunters...or something like that.

I actually really liked the show, it was cool. I just wish it was longer. From what I remember there were lots of cool characters and lots of confusion :D (it's one of those "read the manga if you wanna find out!" ones)

Oh, and I almost forgot the nudity...yeah...how'd I forget that one...?

So as we all know what really draws me to shows, ART!

Lilith

Shinta

 So yeah. Pros and cons!

Pros:
  • Nice art
  • Interesting story
Cons:
  • Confusing
  • Short
(where does nudity fall on these things???)

Also, Holy Knight has a really good opening (IMO) that doesn't really explain anything and yet says so much about the show itself:

So yeah, it was really good. Needs more :D

Thanks for reading! Until next time!
