Seikon no Qwaser II: Awe

Currently finished: Episode 6

Take away the unorthodox presentation, you'd find out the core concept lies beneath the surface is actually not much different than most other action/drama animes: love and friendship in its purest form versus evil who tries to take over the world. In the case of Seikon no Qwaser, this "love" is presented in a very, um..., "pure" yet bizarre form (in fact, I'd say even the word bizarre is an understatement for it). I am completely blown away by the talent of the story's author.

While my opinion was somewhat mixed for season one, I have to say so far this second season has been somewhat impressive. The biggest difference, I think is that without having to ease audience into this bizarre concept, it jumped right into the actions. There was almost no dull moments and plot movement is extremely efficient. A little boobs sucking actions in the uncensored version actually help to reduce bad action scenes: think this way, wherever there would be a somewhat lame action sequence, they simply substitute it with the squeezing, sucking, moaning, and stuff. I'm not saying this is a particular good substitution, it is a very...interesting substitution, so long they don't abuse it.

Oh, on a side note, I just realized that as the voice goes,


That, actually came somewhat a surprise. Now the image of Mio is forever tainted. (No, just kidding)
