i just saw the firs fansub episode. I found it nice but i was expecting more.

The opening and ending themes are completly annoying for me, after the op and ending from last exile, which i love, these ones are the worst...

The action scenes are soo amazing!! im going to follow this one just because of that.

I don't like the char design either. When an anime has to show crotch close-ups and pointy nipples usually is because is lacking in others departments, like story or animation...

Besides until now the story is nothing impressive, i'll just wait for ep two anyway...




sorry for the bad english, every day i try to improve it

A few lesbian undertones is always good. So long as it's not Yaoi.

OT: I watched Yama no Matsui, I liked the art and story very much, but the Yaoi undertones almost made me PUKE! If not for the Yaoi undertones it would definitely ba a great Anime.

i kinda like it, even though it REEKS of Bubblegum Crisis
but even so...there's "something" there that makes it different (oh yeah, that's right, Bubblegum Crisis had the worst sound effects i've ever heard in my entire life)

Is it just me or did the OP kinda seem like Cowboy Beebop? Oh and Meg does seem like Asuka from NGE. I dont need another Asuka i thought she was annoying as hell in NGE. The quality of the animation and all is friggen great though. Im very impressed with the work put into this. The storyline doesnt seem all that great though, but i can look past that

Wasn't Cowboy Bebop's OP theme just the jazzy score? I'll have to admit Baku-Tenshi's OP--J-Rap is what I call it was annoying at first, then it just cracked me up It might just grow on me

This is Noir rip-off? how is that possible? lol although I LOVE Noir I didn't think it was this famous @_@ I mean back then there are loads of people saying Gunslinger Girl is Noir rip-off, and now even Baku Ten is Noir rip-off? These shows feel completely different from Noir.

Besides Noir is completely superior to Madlax... or, at least the first episode of Noir is completely superior to the first Madlax IMO

And yup it's the same people that did Noir doing Madlax, so how can they rip-off themselves? It's just their style... the only thing in Baku Ten that seems similar to Noir is the lesbian-ish "logo picture" as far as I can tell

Whether the series is "awesome" or not is quite subjective mb81. I'm downloading it now, but other peoples comments so far are only backing up my preconceptions that this is just another garbage fanservice ripoff from GONZO again. Explosions, T&A, and mass fanservice don't make a good series, but I'm sure it will "sell" well with the teenie-boppers who don't expect more -- something like a PLOT More comments when I watch the episode, but I turned down encoding it for a reason ;D

With rare exceptions like Last Exile and Full Metal Panic, GONZO hasn't produced anything else in the way of GOOD anime in a long time. Fanservice != Great Series, its just a sure-fire way to make some money pandering to teens with ecchi.

And thats exactly why it sells Sil Eighty -- fanservice sells. The economy is still rather bad in Japan these days, so especially GONZO produces "sure winners" that will draw a profit from these types of series with total fanservice and weak hollow plot. They know that the kids will "look past that" if they are mezmerized for 30mins by bouncing boobies :P

heh, I'd say Last Exile and Full Metal Panic are far from good...

But then GONZO does produce some very good animes even recently, like Saikano, Kaleidostar (yup I think Kaleidostar is far better than Last Exile), Yukikaze...

I really liked this anime, its one of the best new series this month so far IMHO. The only thing I disliked about it was the guy, I was seriously hoping that they would have killed him off in the end. And did anyone else catch that Kill Bill reference? Besides that, Meg/Kyouhei both act like Asuka/Shinji from NGE.

Well, I'd give Baku Ten the benefit of doubt. So far the actions look only so-so, but then it's just the first episode and it seems the second episode will have some more action. Also the plot has barely started yet, and GONZO can do some good plots at times even with series full of fan-service and CG effects, ie. Vandread series.

Well people touched a nerve in me with this thread, because I'm tired of seeing series like these raved by default ;\

I forgot about Saikano, but ppl have to remember that Saikano and FMP were mangas already. Last Exile is the only series that I think was an anime first. (Yukikaze was only an OVA) Beyond that GONZO is shooting 100% in the fanservice series category. I've just reached fanservice overload lately, as it seems over half of whats out there now is like that...

How was Gadguard fanservice? How is Kaleidostar fanservice? I don't rember PMK having much fanservice either (well, I didn't watched much of it, but I didn't read anything regarding that matter). All recent animes done by Gonzo.

CU,
