The review of EDEN’s Bowy will be the one with the most screenshots to date. Screenshots that mostly consists of a particular neko-dictator!!!
Another of your common fantasy shounen anime with some mecha/puppet actions; a boy discovers that he is a legendary God Hunter, and with it he gets the prize of having a goddess accompanying him while being chased by 2 competing flying superpowers of the world who wants him dead or wants his powers, respectively. Then he found another God Hunter, whose job in the whole series is to chase the newly-annointed God Hunter boy while preaching about the story of a scorpion and the frog. That boy also wants a new fur coat, which can only be accomplished by killing the sister of the goddess that is accompanying him. And bla bla bla.
Wasn’t really an outstanding anime storywise. But it wasn’t bad either. But there is nothing really to comment about this underwhelming storyline.
Mixed bag. The character design for female characters (inclusive of the prominently-featured neko-dictator in the screenshots) are good. The male character design is not. Sakura’s character design is better than the main protagonist’s. Mecha/puppet design are not that good either, unless you want to count Hairra in.
The voice for the boy hero is underwhelming. Must be Kappei Yamaguchi’s not-so-stellar gigs. Overall, the voice acting is also mixed bag like the character design, where the female characters outdoing their male counterparts.
The only bright spot for the anime. Both OP and the second ED themes are in my iPod. The OST are not really good though, with the exception of the music tracks playing at scenes at Yulgaha.
Some neat mist special effect are used in this anime, presumably 2D. The animation is quite decent overall. Direction is not well polished, the director failed to manage some of the characters’ reaction after encountering an event or hearing a dialogue. Happens quite plenty of times, making the character’s visual acting plastic at times.
Unlike Kaikan Phrase, music here is quite a strong point but not so great in other areas. 6 out of 10 is what I rate this anime.
