2 Drops and An Approval

Seikai no Senki III
Jinto and Lafiel were riding on a light-armed transport ship "Bokbrusue" and navigating at the planar space of the Hyde System. This was for Jinto to govern the Hyde System, which returned to Empirial rule after the Union retreated, officially as an Earl. However, the government of Martin, Jinto`s motherland, resisted obstinately against the Empirial rule. On the other side, "Daiichi Jyuurin Sentai" (the First Devastation Fleet), formed with the new ship type "Attack Vessel", travelled to the Hyde System for drilling practices, but...

I will honestly tell you that reading the synopsis above was much more interesting than watching the anime. So if the synopsis didn't even make you blink, don't bother. Lol!

I've never seen ships this horny.

Yea, in the distant future, there will be no diversity. Everyone will have shades of blue for hair color, expressionless face, and males and females will share the same tone. Only way to tell them apart is from the figure. Which even then will be tricky.

Screenshots from the original series, Seikai no Monshou a.k.a Crest of the Stars were plentiful. Which got me really curious and looked around for more info. Found out there were a whole lot of additional sequels, movies and tv series. Although, it doesn't really help this 3rd OAV much. In fact, I don't even know why I wrote about it. Just trying to pass the minimum level of words for this review.

Hmm... Since there really isn't much to write about, I want to ask if anyone has seen the previous TV series of this title? Any series.

If you did, how did you find Seikai no Senki III. DId it bring you any form of nostalgia or good memories of how you enjoyed the previous series? Just curious as to how low the level an OAV can drop before fans start to hate a title. It's not BAD bad. It's just below-average bad. But still, even the serious mood it manage to brought about from the ending couldn't save it from killing off one's enthusiasm.

Requiem from the Darkness
- Technically I don't know if I should say I dropped it. Lol! I watched episode 1 and 2 and skipped till the final plot, about episode 9 and onwards. The story was good, no complaints there. Only problem was that the animation was really showing its age and that kind of turn me off. But if I had to rate it, I guess it gets an approval after all.

  1. Ehhhhhhhh?! You skipped through Requiem from the Darkness?! But it was a good series. T.T Oh well... at least it got an approval from ya! =)

  2. I wanted to watch xxxHolic, but I'm not sure if it's good.

  3. @Cag
    Different preferences I guess. :p
    I did like the story. Lord Ranjou... Lol!

    But just wasn't up to sitting through the color style of the anime.

    The reason why I gave it a go was also because of the numerous times I heard people mention xxxHolic.

  4. @Yi, you should give xxxHolic a try. I personally enjoy both season of the anime.
