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.

Anime Ratings List

I had been asked about this on FaceBook, so I’m putting this list up here. It is NOT my ‘all time’ list; not yet. I’ll try to get to that later. This list is just the animé I’ve watched in the last year or so, on CruchyRoll and Netflix. (Maybe a YouTube series or two mixed in as well.)

I’ll come back and update this post from time to time as I add shows to the list. The order is simply by rating and when I’ve seen something. So shows I saw earlier are on top of a numbered category while shows I saw later are below it. So I watched ‘Konosuba’ before I watched ‘Toradora!’. It’s NOT a case of Konosuba is better than the series below it in the 8’s.

No Ranking(Skipping):

“The Heroic Legend of Arsland”: May come back to this, but I just decided to skip it for now.

“Denpa Kyoushi Otaku”: Teacher doesn’t want to teach. Teaches anyway. Skipping for now. Got to episode 4 on YouTube.

“Chivalry of a Failed Knight”: This is the EXACT SAME SHOW as Asterisk War which I got bored and stopped watching half way through. What’s the point?

“Brynhildr in the Darkness”: Witch Girls running from the lab that made them. Stopped at EP: 1.5. Seemed to be heading to some overly sad BS so I quit.

“Walkure Romanize”: Decided I wasn’t interested in girls that joust in fully armored tops but skirt and bikini bottoms.

“Flip Flappers”: Two very odd girls going on adventures. My revisit but I didn’t get the feeling this was for me.

One final caveat, because this list is basically in chronological order from top to bottom per rating category, some shows that I watched earlier, are probably a bit higher than they deserve. (I’d probably move several 6s down to 5s for example, and some of the later 4s would have been 5s if seen earlier in my process. Hope I described the situation well enough.
