We start with our hero, Hiro, watching his mother get assaulted by numerous phallic objects and his father get stabbed in the back. He grows up to be a brooding man shroud in darkness with an enormous shining sword. He has suffered so much that others fear to even look on his face. Then loli Mary Poppins and her pet robot summon an army of evil soldiers. You get the general idea.
In a way, this show was actually pretty amazing. It’s the most chuuni anime I’ve ever seen. It’s somewhat tongue in cheek about it as well, showing at the end that most of Hiro is just childish bluster.
It’s probably going to be a disaster but it definitely didn’t bore me… I’ll at least watch the next episode.
