Quick Anime Review: Kaze No Stigma, Asobi ni Ikuyo:Bombshells from the Sky

Kaze No Stigma

5/10 (EP: 24)

  • Gary Stu Main Character? Check!
  • Forced Team up with MFC? Check.
  • Opponents with no logical reason for doing what they are doing? Check!
  • Main couple don’t understand their own feelings for each other? CHECK!

I could go on. This is about as “FIVE out of TEN” as you can get with regards to a ‘magical humans’ world anime. After watching the whole thing I STILL can’t tell you WTF is wrong with the main character’s Dad. Their relationship makes ZERO sense. Recommendation: Easy pass.

Asobi ni Ikuyo:Bombshells from the Sky

4/10 (EP: 12)

Very dumb.

Very silly.

Very good palate cleanser. Just turn your brain off and enjoy the silly…and fan-service, of course. I mean you knew that from the cover image and the title, right?

6/10 (EP: 12)

It feels a bit odd giving this one a 6. I’m not sure it deserves this high of a ranking, but even though not much happens, I somehow enjoyed the show anyway. Social misfits find out they can make friends, and some of those friends can be as strange as you are. I’d say watch the first two episodes and if you aren’t impressed just pass. Don’t expect too much ‘story’ but enjoy the character’s growth and interaction. Also WTH is up with the ‘fiancee’?

5/10 (EP:12)

“Shonen magical fighting school” show (You know what I’m talking about!) where the girls do most of the fighting and the boys are there for support. The main character, as you’d expect, ends up the guy in the middle of several ‘alpha’ girls. This one didn’t make a lot of sense when you think about it (like AT ALL), but it has a lot of animated tits, so I guess they thought that was enough? If you want something forgettable as a time waster try the first couple of episodes and you’ll know what to expect. My advice, just try not to think about it.
