/I need to babble about this anime okay ;A; If you haven't watched/want to, go find it ;A; Do not ask me to find it for you.
Alright sososo. The animation is pretty damn sexy. ;A; BUT THEN YOU KNOW, If you watch it, the hands sometimes turn into mits out of nowhere. But then again, ORDET is from / received help from KyoAni.
ANYWAY Battle Music was completely BADASS. Like, =ww= MY CUP OF BLOOD /because in war you don't drink tea. You drink BLOOD. And the animation for the fighting was GORGEOUS.
It opens up with Black Gold Shaw/Saw ;ww; And poopie happens. I'm not sure why BRS has to fight /her/ Since they're depicted as friends from the fanbase. and STR does absolutely nothing (I'm betting this is Yuu). I see glimpses of Human BGS in the train the first time Mato gets on it, btw. So. Foreshadow? something?
Though The story was pretty easy to understand without the subs. =w= Girls get jealous and poopie. I totally ship Mato/Yomi okay no do =u=<3 The "Uuuu~n Aishiteru, YOMIII" was so cute ;A;
And I actually felt /bad/ for Yomi. Poor girl like ;n;..
Yuu you friendstealer :c >:C
=w= I liked how the BRSWorld was shown with the RL world, but I mean.. There's still missing pieces. Why is BRS fighting BGS? Whyyyyyy Is STR being a stalker? :<
At the end there I almost cried because I thought DM actually pulled herself/Yomi off the cliff and I was like ;A;/// NOoooooooooooooOOOoo... Then I was like ;AA;" HAPPY FAN.
Then at the end when Mato merges with BRS and it ended. I raged.
But Yuu at the last 5 seconds obviously is going to mean
Overall, I'M SAD THAT THIS WAS IT.
BUT I STILL LOVED IT AND IT WAS GORGEOUS.
Can I buy this some how ;A;
Here's a full review I did on MAL of it;
Okay, First BRS Review because I Just watched it. /without subs. But having no Subs at all really doesn't matter, because the story is VERY Easy to follow.
//Spoilers Included, Of Course;
Mato and Yomi become friends when Mato pushes herself onto her (probably out of admiration of her), and they actually begin talking, going out and hanging out with one another; Sharing stories, and experiences, and having matching cell phone charms.
Though when Yuu gets into the picture when Mato hurts her knee in Gym, slowly the girls start speaking less and less with one another as Mato is progressively interested in Yuu. To put more stress on the situation, They no longer have homeroom together.
When Yomi ends up missing, Mato realizes what she has done, and desperately wishes for her friend to come back. One night she gets a message from Yomi's cell phone, and she travels to their sightseeing spot and finds Yomi's charm, and Black Rock Shooter appears, giving the chance to Mato to find her lost friend.
It's slightly over-used highschool drama/friendship testing that we're used to seeing, just mixed with a fantasy backdrop that's not even remotely elaborated upon due to time restrictions. You see Black Gold Shaw and STR, but they do close to nothing except /be/ there, and their appearances aren't even explained; Moreso with BGS than STR (Who must be Yuu, I'm sure). It's easy to follow even without subs, which is convenient but also saddening, because it lacks /depth/.
Ordet does some amazing fight scenes, other times it seems a bit lazy and lackluster, especially in some talking scenes when the hands are reduced to blobby mittens. Also the lines seem to just "poof" out of no where in what you would think were easily animated parts. But the eyes are always nice to look at and the liquid style are a plus and outweigh the negative.
Oh my god. This soundtrack.
The fight scenes are orchestrated to the heavy metal/rock music almost perfectly, and add a sense of "poopie's hitting the fan" more so then most music I'm used to hearing in fight scenes. The everyday scenes are in perfect contrast and are airy, with happy undertones and make you feel carefree as well. The music shifts are done very skillfully and expertly executed.
I'd seriously love to know who made the music for the battle scenes though. They made my year with it.
The characters are developed very nicely in the short time frame, though more so on Yomi than Mato, Yuu, or BGS/STR. We mainly only see how Yomi is affected for much of the show, and I felt more partial to her feelings than Mato, who completely ignores Yomi as soon as Yuu appears. We don't get to know much, if at all, Yuu's real personality. So for this the score slightly suffers, but I give it a lee way considering the time frame.
This anime. Made me almost cry; and it made me jump. Oh, and It also made me have to tweet something every five minutes about SOMETHING THAT WAS JUST Too "Adorable" or "Angering" or "WHAT!!?". Overall, this was a very enjoyable experience.
And there's going to be an obvious continuation by that hint, Yuu.
So I'm eager for the next installment and even though some points were saddening, I loved every moment of it.
