GREATEST ANIME OF SUMMER SEASON? YOU BET!!
(potential 56k killer ahead. BEWARE)
Ok seriously though this is one of the best anime of the year so far in my opinion. While some might bemoan it as an anime that is full of nothing but fanservice (due to the fact that every girl in the anime wears their pantsu as pants) I disagree. Why the? Well there are a few reasons to that.
An accurate depiction of the relationship between the characters.
First of all the interaction between the characters was superb. Undoubtedly the anime would not have become what it is now without strong characters and this one delivers it in droves. From Yoshika and Lynne to Eila and Sanya each of the witches was unique and they blended well with each other to create truly hilarious moments such as the time when Erica “borrowed” Lucchini’s pantsu and caused chaos within the base.
Secondly, the quality of animation was consistently good throughout the entire series. Not once did I spot a moment of QUALITY in it. It seems that Gonzo is finally cleaning up its act and bringing back the glory days after several disappointing offerings of late.
And finally I would like to add that there was actually a plot throughout the anime. It is called making friends and kicking alien ass with yuri on the side.
Let’s recall some of the great moments of the anime shall we?
You cannot unsee the chest vagoo.
A floating battleship. Kinda reminds me of Macross Zero.
The most emotional line of the entire season.
Greatest new character introduction EVER.
However, it can’t just end like this. There needs to be a second season of this and if current DVD sales statistics are to be trusted there should be a second season coming sometime later because Gonzo would not be such a fool that it would not want to capitalize on one of it’s better anime to date.
I COMMAND THEE TO PRODUCE A SECOND SEASON
So what would the new season be like? Certainly the success of the first season would be a difficult one to emulate but IT MUST BE DONE FOR THE GREATER GOOD. The following images are some of the more outlandish ideas out there.
Gurren Witches SPIN ON!!!!!!
Frontier Witches. Now THAT would have been awesome.
But before I end this post,
It has been a great anime indeed. HA HA HA!!!!
