Anime Blog 97: 11 Eyes

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/11eyes:_Tsumi_to_Batsu_to_Aganai_no_Sh%C5%8Djo

11 Eyes is a 12 episode shonen with 1 OVA.

The story follows Kakeru and Yuka, 2 childhood friends who are suddenly dragged into this "Red World" where strange monsters attack them. They find out that other students at their school are also dragged into the fight and that each one of them has a special power they can use in both the Red World and the real world. I'm not going to be able to go into much detail about the rest of the story because it gets quite complex and I don't want to spoil it for anyone who decides to watch this; that's why I always link to Wikipedia or a similar site :D Spoilers at your own risk there :D

This show has been on my list for years and I finally got around to watching it over the past couple of days. I couldn't remember what it was about or why I decided to watch it originally, I just had a picture saved on my computer. The picture made me think it was going to be a school-centered show with fantasy/paranormal aspects...WRONG!

I started watching this a couple days ago and all I could think was "And I wanted to watch this show why???" and by the last couple of episodes I kept yelling at the computer screen "WHAT THE F*** DID I DECIDE TO WATCH!!!!!?????"

It gets really crazy...wow.

And dear Jesus...the panty shots. It wasn't even just panty shots for ecchi purposes (at least to me they didn't feel that way) it was like the camera was just always at a panty shot angle. ALWAYS. Then people are randomly in their underwear for no apparent reason...just because. WOW. So many panty shots...just sayin'

But now that I finished it I can honestly say it wasn't that bad. It was weirder than I expected but it didn't end as badly as I was expecting it to by the later episodes. Also. Episode 13...

Episode 13 (the OVA) puts them in a "Pink World" instead of the "Red World" and everyone's powers suddenly become pervy...I have to say after such a serious show, I enjoyed a good laugh at the OVA :D

Also, Takahisa is played by Showtaro Morikubo, who is the guy who plays Shikamaru Nara in Naruto (I really like his voice!)--Takahisa is the guy who looks kinda like Inuyasha

So, art!

Kukuri, Kusakabe, Yuka, Yukiko, and Shiori
I also really like the opening song and I think it introduces the characters well:

Pros and Cons:

Pros:
  • Short
  • Good art
  • Decent ending
  • I like Yukiko :D
  • Interesting ideas thrown around about who the good guys are and are we really the bad guys?
Cons:
  • Gets weird...
  • There's a part that really makes you think, OMG it's that girl from School Days
That's about it!
**I totally liked Kakeru and Yuka together...excepting when she went School Days

Thanks for reading! Until next time,
