Thank you. This show is quite unusual as there is a LOT of stuff going on, the show evolves several times from "fall of a princess" and mecha fighting action to love and betrayal to heroic fighting action. There's a bit of everything from action to emotion to ecchi to beautiful songs. YURI ruined the experience of love.
This is a show with a lot of tone changes. Watching a few episodes doesn't reveal the plot or premise. Watching half the series only partially sets up the conclusion. Some people might call it a train wreck. Others may complain about the 'unrealistic' setting or the shallowness of the cast. While others would appreciate that the story evolves and takes the time to tell the story, including numerous characters with quite a bit of growth.
As far as production goes, this show is excellent. I liked it specifically because of its growth and evolution of story. Where it falls short, however, is after they spend a lot of effort building up the story, they really start slipping toward the end. If you ask me, this show is unfairly under-rated, but not without reason. Wow, naked girls, mechas and dragons! Seriously, this anime has a great story with interesting character development.
The soundtrack is also really good. If you seek action, good story and a lot of naked girls, this anime is for you! A must watch in my opinion. Veri good and underrated. After the firts chapters it becomes really good. Don't pay attention to negative reviews, it's a very good show. Yes, lots of ecchi stuff but this is anime.
This shit is so bad it's fucking brilliant. Watch it with friends drunk. The anime industry quite often does the scifi action story which is actually too ridiculous to be taken seriously, so you can only laugh at the plot twists. Cross Ange is this, but deliberately comedic, and done good, with added snark, great ideas behind it, character development, death, love, lesbian kiss between Nanoha and Fate, "I fucked you're waifu" speeches, and so on.
As I was saying, it's perfect. Cross Ange was a roller coaster of a watch with its highs and lows. The beginning was intriguing focusing on a utopia, the unknown and lots of betrayal. The plot did jump around a bit towards the middle creating plot holes. This series reminded me of Macross Frontier with mechas being powered up through emotions and songs.
Reviews add review. Rating: 3. However, while the latter has pretty decent story and characters, but is hindered by its very average production value, the former is like watching a catastrophic train crash in slow-motion, but with very good graphics, and also tons of sexual content. In this society, nearly everyone can use Mana, either for telekinesis or for making vehicles move. The story focuses on Angelize Ikaruga Misurugi, the first princess of the Misurugi empire.
At her sixteenth birthday she is betrayed by her brother Julio, and revealed to be a Norma. Her parents who were hiding the truth are killed, and Julio takes over the Empire.
Did I say dragons? In the first three episodes she is irritating as hell, as she is always crying and complaining with her annoying voice, acts dumb, and causes the death of three other Normas.
She tries to kill herself by piloting the Villkiss, an old ParaMail that no one can pilot properly, but of course she is the only who can use it to its full strength. Not a very believable personality shift, but at least that made her a less annoying character. The scenes on the island are very cheesy. One thing that I learned with this episode is that, if a generic harem lead falls and ends up his face between your legs, your selfishness and arrogance disappear afterwards!
Incredible, huh? Fan-service overload The first critical flaw of this anime is that it is plagued with excessive fan-service.
It is not just an anime with a lot of fan-service, but rather a 25 episodes long shower scene with a plot. Seriously, there are dozens, if not hundreds, of bath, shower and locker scenes. Even scenes where important information is revealed are sometimes bath scenes. Why do people treated as subhumans get the luxury of having a hot springs in their military base, nobody knows.
And the beach episode… ugh. And then you have Ange disguising as a mascot to avoid an important woman. And then they talk while she is wearing a goddamn swimsuit. And then she and her friends escape from Arzenal, while still wearing swimsuits! What is a harem lead doing in an anime about girls piloting mechas? Tusk is annoying. He has absolutely no charisma. He has an ugly and generic character design, and I swear I have seen his face dozens of times in other garbage series.
He has an irritating voice. He is a white knight who sees females as weak beings who need his protection. His relationship with Ange is boring and predictable. Seriously, there were several other girls with a better personality and better looks in this series, so why did the plot-writers have to make Ange fall in love with this garbage character?
It could have been with Hilda, after all their experience and personality are somewhat similar. It could have been with Salamandinay, since they seemed to get along so well after playing golf in a parallel world! Heck, it could even have been with Salia, or just anyone in Arzenal, really.
Without him, the show could have been much, much better. He is the man who created this nearly Utopian society, but he thinks that it has become corrupted and wants to destroy it, killing the whole of humanity in the process, to create a new and supposedly better society. It seems to me that his goal of creating an ideal society is just an excuse for him to have his own harem of Normas. His only objective after he meets Ange is to have sexual intercourse with her, and for that reason he will abduct her several times, attempt to rape her, and torture her, but of course Tusk is always here to save the damsel in distress.
He is also stupid. And yes, despite the fact that he should be unbeatable, the good guys still find a way to beat him in the end! I am pretty sure this scene is stolen from Soukou no Strain. How could she hide such a huge thing under a military base? And why the hell is it named the same as the Russian cruiser Aurora, a symbol of the October revolution? There are many other annoying elements and events but I will not talk about them because the review would be too long.
What the about the others characters, then? Well, they are pretty bad. Unsurprisingly, this is also the case here. In ep. Despite that Momoka harasses her until she accepts, and she continues acting as her maid and wearing her maid outfit… in a military base.
There are many annoying characters such as Vivian, the archetype of the energetic girl, who is made annoying by her high-pitched voice and her catchphrase. Once Ange is revealed to be a Norma, she starts hating her and turns into a little bitch who enjoys torturing people. He is just your average evil character who is easy to hate because he is a coward with a punch-able face, like Joffrey in Game of Thrones.
And Rosalie? Her only personality is being dumb. And she betrays her friends because of this. Since she is supposed to be a serious and bad-ass character, she smokes cigarettes, because you know, having lung cancer makes you cool. We have Hilda, who leads the lesbian gang whose only purpose for an important number of episodes is having lesbian sex and bullying Ange. She gets some character development around ep.
The mechas are in CGI, and the CGI is pretty good, but good CGI will always look uglier than good 2D animation. Tusk has a generic character design, with the face of an idiot you can find in dozens of harem anime, but apart from that the character designs are well done and easy to recognize.
For example, Salamandinay has a pretty cool character design. They are very similar to the character designs in Code Geass , which is nothing surprising since both series are made by the same animation studio. The backgrounds look good. Sound-wise, the background music can be bad at times, but not horrible. The main problem is the bad music placement. The two openings are pretty meh and forgettable, both in terms of music and graphics.
Verdict Cross Ange is a very bad show overall. The plot is dumb and plagued with invasive fan-service and dumb elements. The characters are absolutely terrible. Without the good animation, watching it would feel like a chore. Approval: Review Cross Ange: Tenshi to Ryuu no Rondo Cross Ange is yet another filler by Sunrise targeting Gundam fans, or so you might think.
In this case, however, there are so many twists to the basic shounen template that sustains the famous mecha franchise that you may end up watching something completely different and weird.
Basically, I could classify Cross Ange as a girls only Gundam with high doses of cheap erotism, high amounts of cheesy ecchiness, and an also great degree of nonsense. Because of that, I prefer to classify this as a girls only Linebarrels of Iron , which is far easier if you know that crappy show. Cross Ange tell us about Angelise, princess to a fantastic kingdom whose peace was achieved by eradicating any human that could not control the power of Mana, some sort of magic that greatly aids in many daily shores and also act as an energy source.
Angelise, whoever, is a hoax. She is one of the aberrations that cannot control Mana, but her parents sheltered her until her cerimony of adulthood, when the lie is finally revealed and the nation is thrown into turmoil.
An impactful start Cross Ange starts nicely. Amidst the colorful and sharp artwork that remind us a lot of Code Geass and Gundam 00 , there is an intricate scheme full of backstabbing and royal influences.
A quick turn of events brings us a nice starting tragedy to Ange's life, and the background of a kingdom brought down by unmasking a terrible lie makes us expect great things from it. Let's forget that stuff Why not focus on girls in skimpy clothing battling dragons while piloting mechas that turn into air bicycles? Let's give the audience some boobs, clever camera angles to show the girls on their tight swimsui I mean, pilot suits, and add some anal rape in the process!
Political backstabbing? That is for children! This all happens when the show throws Ange into a women-only prison that enslaves those who cannot use Mana to fight dragons from another world randomly popping in the sky. That's some hell of a premise, huh? It turns into mindless fun, at best Instead of exploring whatever depth the tale could have, Cross Ange instead turns into one big ecchi fest. Tons of girls, lots of ecchiness, and infinite dumb fanservice make Linebarrel of Irons feel kinda lazy in that department at many points.
The show does try to tackle Ange's adaptation to her new environment and at many points does a decent job at that But then she is caught by the harem lead When Ange's development starts to become something to entice you The show throws into the scene a random militia guy that instantly turns into a harem lead, tripping over Ange, licking her crotch by accident every episode, blushing and feeling dumb every scene.
There's even an accidental blow job by Ange with this guy. Strike Freedom and Infinite Justi Well, this change to mindless ecchi is not everything Cross Ange has to annoy you or surprise you, if you are still surprised by this standard.
At mid-season the uber mecha Ange pilots, which is insanely similar to Strike Freedom, meets its red anathema, which is insanely similar to Infinite Justice. Damn, even the launch sequence of the mechas is ripped of Gundam. Anyway, like Valvrave , this is a poor tribute and even a lack of respect to Sunrise 's own great franchise. Things become even worse when they turn the dragons into girls from another world, which turns out to be our real world, devasted by warfare, where mankind turned into Oh, and everything in Ange's world was created by some guy, whose power is manifested by his chosen mechas.
Some deaths to inspire you? No thanks. When the show is already a mess of nude nipless girls, a few unexpected deaths happen to give you one final tease that it may yet manage to salvage at least a tiny bit from all the trash. But no, no. The very next episode the dead return, miraculously saved by the script and there goes all the new chance to give Ange a bit of development. This is ridiculous It seems Sunrise cares for that no longer, as the cast in Cross Ange manage to be even dumber than in Valvrave.
Although there is no high school in the setting, the military academy turns out to be just that and from there you have a bunch of forgetabble girls with skimpy clothing and always ready for yuri scenes. The villain? Plain useless and uninspiring. Oh, of course, be ready for some girls with really annoying voices and an overall sound direction of mediocre quality. Comments Okay. What the hell I just watched? I do enjoy dumb shounens from time to time and I tend to watch everything that reminds me of good old Gundams, but this one tries very hard to take the podium of silliness with Valvrave and Linebarrel of Irons.
It also reminded me of Simoun , an yuri adventure with a very similar template, but that lacked the skyhigh degree of shame Cross Ange has It surprises how even the production value of the show is lacking to Sunrise 's standard.
The artwork is sharp and colorful and it reminded me a lot of Code Geass , but the background is plain and simple, there is an inconsistency over the episodes and the mechas are so absurdly detailed they feel completely misplaced with everything else. There is also a weird coloring in the later episodes changing the work with shadows and making everything feel as if some web-flash artwork from the 90's. Rating: 5. Cross Ange , another amazing production by Sunrise , keeps the studio's traditions predictably close to heart, yet those very traditions are clusterfuck and inconsistencies.
What's the result? Designs of both characters and scenery are bland and average, yet functional and distinctive enough - you do not mistake one character for another save for second plan characters, but who cares about those , same goes for scenery. Audio is, likewise, ok, it employs songs as some plot devices, and they're ok, but nothing extra ordinary. Budget holes here are not as obvious. But, oh boy, does the plot suck big time.
But anything in the name of fanservice! Really, I could forgive the show many things. I could forgive the tropey characters who adhere to stereotypes by the letter and have little discernible traits that we haven't seen a thousand times before. Characters are really bad in this show. Motivations are Big Words and Feelings, yet these big words have no substance to back them up, and so everyone sounds like someone from a drama written by a middleschooler.
Some characters even have backstories, yet these backstories are vague and convenient for the right moment to advance the plot for some stupid goal. The writing often displays little interest in leading up to events beyond the scope of a single episode, and so convenience rules the day. The few overarching plot elements that the show does possess do not make up for the resulting mess, when multiple parties, who all want vaguely the same thing, engage in battles of stupidity and Drama.
I could forgive these things thanks to two properties this show has. One, the show is very unpredictable. Don't be mistaken, it's a setting that allows writers to pull out "magic! When stakes are as high as this, and the world is this weird global Sunrise political sci-fi bullshit drama, I can't help but feel excitement and swallow the next plot hook raw. Two, it's sex. Yet, fanservice and exaggerations aside, sex feels like part of the setting, part of the lives of characters.
And, so in the face of countless pseudo-hentai pieces, who never quite do or even call in the real names the things they constantly imply, Cross Ange elevates itself above the crowd by making sex a normal thing, a part of life. It's not the first to do this, but for its kind, the noble genre of "epic scale clusterfuck", it's a head above the rest. But what doesn't let me forgive anyhing are also two things.
First, the villain. Starting with crazy Code Geass, it moved to super crazy Valvrave, and eventually to super duper crazy Cross Ange. The only way to enjoy these types of anime, is to shut off your brain to logic and accept everything they throw at you.
This way the complete randomness will translate to fun, because you have no idea what the hell is going to happen next.
The story is nonsensical and the characters are straight out of an eroge, but hey, it keeps you watching, and, supposed, entertains you.
Who cares about the story? Oh, and they included Gundam SEED mechas and characters as Easter eggs, because why not. For a non-hentai show, it is very heavy on fan service. Aside from the occasional sex jokes, you get constant nudity, lesbians, sadistic torture, and male rapists. Very cringe-worthy stuff if you are not into that sort of deviance. It becomes twice as unbearable if you listen to how people who like that shit try to defend them as meaningful and deep.
No sir, it is not deviant fan service, it is means to show the character development of the main heroine, it is about female empowerment as she fends off her assailants and grows stronger, and it is about finding the will to stand on your own feet instead of letting yourself being controlled by men.
Now stand still as I chain you naked on a table and shove a stick up your ass to make sure you are not hiding anything in there. I have lost count of how many tasteless casuals kept telling me how the sexuality is not too much, and is even very realistic, since such stuff happens all the time in real life.
I mean come on, look around you, you will find naked lesbians being tortured into submission in every street. Nothing lasts long enough to matter and the little bits which do, are ridiculed by done to death ecchi slapstick. This is why the show is pretentious, and those who defend its deviance, are pretentious overthinkers. Then we have the other side of the spectrum, where other people defend it by dubbing it self-aware. Like, if something happens all the time and in such volumes, it ceases to be ridiculous or sexy and becomes its own thing.
But does that make them deep or serious? No, it makes them a circlejerk of people having fun with something so bad, that it becomes good. Not even the production values are that good, since the CGI robots and dragons are meh, and the character designs are bland. The only thing that stands out, are the Gundam SEED Easter eggs and the very revealing Norma uniforms.
Because half the time they are completely naked. I guess the themes of racism and female empowerment do not look real enough if women are dressed. Despite all this bullshit though, there is something that Cross Ange did right, and that is starting off very low, and gradually building upwards.
Just like Steins;Gate and Shinsekai Yori, it aims to get popularity and prestige as it goes on. When you marathon a show with the reassurance that it gets better, your opinion of it improves considerably.
Of course the heroine going through lots of changes does not equal amazing character development as many believe it is if the script is trash.
And it is trash; you can never take it seriously, you are just laughing at it harder and harder, as it gets dumber and dumber.
This is why it is nowhere as smart or as deep as many of you make it seem to be. But it is going to be deep. Clubs indirectly related clubs. Sci-fi Hub.
