Quick Anime Reviews: Unlimited Fafnir

Title:
Unlimited Fafnir

Rating: 5/10

Episodes: 12

Genre:
Harem, Fantasy, Magic, Battle School

Available On:
CrunchyRoll

Description:
Around half a dozen ‘Dragons’ have invaded the earth with unimaginable magical powers and are destroying whatever they come across. Why are they here? What do they want?
Apparently they are just wanting sexytime with some teenage human girls. Not kidding, that’s the setup. These special girls (called “D’s) inherited some of the dragons powers and use them to fight them off or destroy them, but when the ‘color’ of the dragon matches the symbol on the girl’s body, she can get transformed into a similar dragon and that’s when the sexytime can get started. Enter Yuu Mononobe, the only male with the dragon symbol. He transfer’s to the all girls school to help the elite of the school fight off the rampaging dragons.

Dislikes:
VERY mediocre. Very tropey. If you’ve seen this type show before, you’ll not find anything new here. The characters look their actual age for the most part in this show, but that just makes the ‘reality’ of it worse. The story was left ‘open’ for a second season, but I don’t think it’s deserving of one. Maybe the manga the show is based off of is better?

Likes:
Yuu must trade his memories for power to get stronger, and he’s already forgotten some of his very youngest years with his sister. This leads him to have a very REAL sense of loss to protect others. That’s about it.

Recommendation:
Skip. If you are in the mood for a typical harem/shonen show this can fill that hole but there are probably better shows to watch.

KonoSuba: God’s Blessing on This Wonderful World!

Rating: 8/10

Episodes: 10 Seasons: 2

Genre:
Comedy, Adventure, Fantasy, Magic, Another World

Available On:
CrunchyRoll

Description:
After dying in a pathetic and embarrassing manner, shut-in NEET, Kazuma Satou finds himself in front of a beautiful goddess named Aqua. She tells him he can be teleported to a fantasy world with all his memories intact and ONE magical item, and if he can somehow defeat the ‘Demon King’ that’s raging there, he can even come back and be reincarnated to a life of luxury in Japan. After tons of jokes at his expense, and general obnoxiousness towards him, Kazuma decides in a fit of pique to take Aqua with him instead of an item. The heavens agree; but boy howdy Aqua does not! It doesn’t take Kazuma long to realize what a mistake he’s made though, because Aqua is almost totally useless in this new fantasy setting. When she isn’t getting further into debt while not adventuring, she’s making things actively WORSE for the party WHILE adventuring. Realizing that he’s totally unprepared for hardships of adventuring life Kazuma tries recruiting some party members. Enter Arch-Mage Megumin and Crusader Darkness (aka Lalatina Ford Dustiness). These two ‘advanced class’ adventurers end up having weird quirks that quickly show why no other parties will take them. Megumin ONLY uses explosive magic, which she can only use once per day and is so wiped out afterwards she can’t even stand, and Darkness is a total masochist that can’t hit ANYTHING with her sword, but loves being a wall (ie: getting hit!) for her party. Hilarity ensues.

Dislikes:
NOT ENOUGH EPISODES TO SATISFY ME! MOAR!!!! Also the very last arc of the second season is a bit weaker than the rest in my opinion. Hopefully there are more seasons coming.

Likes:
To many to list, but mostly I laughed so hard, I was worried I’d burst a blood vessel and/or give myself a headache. No seriously. I haven’t laughed like this in a LONG time!

Recommendation:
Watch. Watch it RIGHT NOW!! If you aren’t LOL’ing by the end of the first episode you are dead inside.

Extras:
I will say the first season wasn’t quite as funny on the second viewing, but it’s hard not to just laugh till you can’t breath watching Aqua get ‘traumatized’ over and over, usually because of her own mistakes or bad decisions.

Recommendation:
No. Just NO.
I’m not putting anything else here because this one was just too bad to discuss.
If you want to watch light porn/hentai that covers up all the ‘good bits’ go ahead. I do NOT recommend watching this one at all and I’m not even going to put up the cover image for it.
