April 2007 New Anime Report Part 8

Lovely Complex
Genres: Light Comedy
I've watched: 1 episode
Art style: Stretched (Similar to "One Piece" if you've seen it)
Recommended to: Anybody is not bothered by that art style
Summary: This is a story about a tall girl and a short guy. More ironically, the tall girl's name contains konji means "small", and the short guy's name contains konji means "big". Poeple always made fun of them together by switching the konji of "small" and "big" between their names when calling them. One day, after they made a bet to see who will get a boyfriend or girlfriend first. Now the story begins.
Rating - first impression: 4.0 out of 5
Personal comment: I know this particular art style bothers some people, but I'm cool with it. Overall, it looks like it'll be an intereting comedy. Obviously, with a opening like this, you know that they'll end up together when the series is coming to an end.

Heroic Age
Genres: Mecha/Space Fantasy/Sci-fi
I've watched: 1 episode
Recommended to: I'm not recommending this to anybody!
Summary: Some higher being created the universe. They also taught 3 races in the universe to travel between stars. Mankind had now just learned to travel out of their planet, and is looking for the messiah to save them.
Rating - first impression: 2.6 out of 5
Personal comment: Something (I'm not sure what) about this anime just doesn't feel right. Maybe it feels somewhat like Gundum? I don't know. It barely passed my threshold. If my schedule gets busier, this will sure be the first one to drop.

AIKa R16: Virgin Mission
Genres: Comedy Drama + very little Sci-fi
I've watched: 1 episode
Recommended to: People is just looking for something to watch, it's an ok time filler
Summary: A girl got her license for operating a class C mini-submarine. She is then hired by the school's archeology club to hunt for treasure. Then things start to go wrong. (You know the drill)
Rating - first impression: 3.0 out of 5
Personal comment: I might have to drop this one because of the source problem: I can't seem to find a reliable fansub source for this. Although the anime is good enough to get a 3.0 rating, I'm really not interested in this one.
