Wow guys I’m so excited about Zetsuen no Tempest! It’s a story about the deep friendship between a weak, kind boy and a harsh, indifferent boy with amazing powers. I really hope they can set aside their differences and become best friends.
Unfortunately, the weak boy has a girlfriend who seeks to undermine his true love! What a bitch, I hope she turns into a giant rainbow butterfly and explodes.
Also, some mysterious disease is killing off the townspeople by transmorgifying their skin into something inhuman. But they probably deserve it, so whatever. Oh, and the government is suppressing the truth! No one really cares about the truth anyway though so hey, whatever.
But if you didn’t know how serious this show’s message was before, well, after all the breathtaking acting and the quotations from Hamlet, you will. This is some deep stuff here. This might come as a scandalous shock to my conservative readers, but… I think these guys might be gay. I suspected it before, but now that they’ve quoted from Hamlet… I’m sure of it. Definitely gay. It’s fabulous.
Oh yeah, and those butterflies! Some crazy stuff! I wonder what all this talk is about this creature that those evil mages are trying to awaken…?
In short, I have to congratulate Bones. Only they, the creators of Fullmetal Alchemist, Rahxephon and Eureka Seven, have the guts to come up with an anime as original and creative as Zetsuen no Tempest. This is the beginning of a new chapter in anime history!
