K Review — C

Pretty blue fujoshi-bait.

I won’t pretend to have understood what was going on most of the time, but I was entertained. It probably could have done been slightly less ridiculous, but I suppose that was part of its charm. Best villain at the end… tons of shipping potential… it was very blue… not much else to say.

  • Storytelling – D – More interested in style over substance.
  • Voice – B – Blue, stylish, makes excellent use of pauses.
  • Characters – C – They’re all interesting, but the chemistry between them is rather shallow (the kind of stuff you expect in yaoi).
  • Attention Grab – B – Despite some confusion and plenty of pauses, I never felt bored.
  • Production – A – Looks great, the music is excellent. Although I don’t think the rest lived up to the first episode.
  • Overall – C

Recommendations – Durarara, No. 6

  1. The production took a sharp turn half way, you know…
    The fights inside the school, between the red gang and blue gang, they are just still pictures.

    Oh yeah. What are red king and blue king’s relationship? Yaoi. What else. Wohoo.

    1. Yeah, the production went way downhill, but I still think it looked cool. It tried something different and got creative with the lighting, camera angles and music, which is more than you can say of most anime.

  2. The lighting just plain hurt my eyes. It was just so damn bright that I just stopped watching it every week and just let it pile up for about 2-3 episodes.

  3. A classic example of style over substance, I think there was some sort of story in the last couple of episodes, but that could be me misinterpreting the stylish fights and Yashiro glowing a little. Still, a entertaining and wonderfully animated series, and sometimes thats all you really need.

    1. Yep, no substance, but at least it has style. One out of two ain’t bad, and it’s more than you can say for most anime.
