Origin: Spirits of the Past, Akahori Gedou Hour Rabuge

Origin: Spirits of the Past (Gin-iro no Kami no Agito). Movie by studio GONZO, 1:34:15 long (according to the ureshii sub anyways...)

I dunno. It's graphically very, VERY impressive. I guess it's mostly the attention to detail, and some nicely done CG (exploding moon).

But the plot was only so-so. I don't know. I would have liked it more if they killed off the main male character in the end. That would have been more tragic and stuff. And the flashbacks at the beginning were also kinda confusing as they were somewhat out of order...

:: shrugs:: it's good, if you want to watch something graphically pretty, and short.

3. 25. 15. 21. 23. 1.

Some things still don't make too much sense though. Like the explosions on the earth before the "dragon"-plants hit? Or were the experiments going on on the earth too?

And superhuman-ness? Kinda weird. It took away from the story, I think. Would definitely have benefitted from a bit of extra time, maybe for character development.

And why wasn't she wearing any pants while in status?

Genre/Catagories: Nature vs. Humanity, Science fiction, hero with added powers rescues a girl.
Grade: C

Akahori Gedou Hour Rabuge:
13 episodes. I previously mentioned it here: If you're interested, read the summary there.

Genre/Catagories: Humor, magical girls, mecha, more humor.
It's... probably a B. It's amusing and it's unique.
