April 2008 New Anime: Blassreiter

Genres: Action / Scifi / Modern Fantasy / Racing??
I've watched: 1 episode
Art style: Semi-realistic / 3DCG
Special note: Produced by Gonzo (one of my favorite animation studio)

Summary: There are some demon thingy running around killing people. The have the ability to morph and meld with other objects (e.g. cars, motorcycle, etc). Joseph Jobson, who become paralyzed from waist down because of one of the demon attack, got a chance to become the only one that could effectively fight off those demons.

Rating (of 5) - first impression: 3.75 - It's only first episode, I can already pick out some Gonzo's bad habits on making dramas

Personal comments: For one, this is one of the mixed 2D and 3D graphic anime. Most character are in 2D, and most sophisticated objects are in 3D. People have problem with 3DCG in anime or have problem with mixed 2D/3D environment, you probably don't want to bother with this. The graphics, art style, even the story reminded much of Bakuretsu Tenshi, which is also a Gonzo anime. Looks like they're recycling old animes......
