[New April 2009] Tears to Tiara

Genres: Fantasy
I've watched: 1 episode

Summary: In a fantasy land, Riannon, who possesses the ancient blood that could wake up the evil lord, was caught by someone who wants to rule the world using the evil lord's power.

First impression score: 70 ~ Slow and uneventful

Recognized voice talent: Yoko Goto (後藤邑子) as Riannon. She's probably most famous as Asahina from The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya. In most other animes, including Tears to Tiara, she sounds much different than Asahina. Only other anime I can think of she sounds like Asahina is Lamune.

Personal comments: This was a game produced by AQUAPlus, which was also the creator of To Heart series and White Album. So far none of them had left a positive impression for me, and the opening episode of Tears to Tiara didn't do much better either. It was a very slow and uneventful start, the plot is just not moving anywhere fast. This might be a goner by the next episode.

I see this at Animax. my opinion:Not interest to see this Harem anime especially with Shoujo type drawing.
If it's become hentai, I think I'll watch it.
nb: basicly, I hate most of anime that the protagonist are girls with no brain, just body show.

Well, I don't think it's only a harem body show. It's based off a game from Aqua Plus, who generally writes ok stories for their games. And I wouldn't consider this a Shoujo type drawing. It just inherited its style from the game.
