Wtf. No, seriously. WTF??? Ok, this series was just…really bad ~_~;;; And I had very high hopes for this series since everyone praises it so much D: But WTF!? Ok, this review is just gonna turn out to be some kind of angry rant so please stop here if you love this anime XD
My opening remarks? Now and Then, Here and There is a child abuse show. These poor kids get beaten senseless for the stupidest reasons D: It’s dummer than the holocaust D: anyways…
Ok. So the anime starts off with a boy named Shuu who plays kendo. Apparently, he finds a girl sitting on the top of a tall pipe thingy [?] and talks to her for a bit. After a rather crappy and boring conversation, he is all of a sudden chased by machines and teleported to a new world where he is beaten senseless and gets caught up in a mess that was so freakin unrealistic, rushed, and stupid. To think that he wouldn’t have ended up in if he just DIDN’T talk to the girl on the top of the tall pipe thingy.
There are MANY instances in this anime where i found myself saying "one would normally DIE in that kind of situation >___>;;;". I found this anime to be VERY unrealistic and portrays human emotions in a very unrealistic way. Where do I begin ~____~?? Oh wait, I know. Let’s start off with Shuu. Okay. He was so freakin annoying. I hated him ~_~ I couldn’t stand his overly optomistic personality. It got to a point where he was TOO optomistic that it was overused and extremley annoying. "Don’t worry, we’ll pull through 8D", "All good things happen when you stay alive 8D~!" Bullshit. I can’t believe he was beaten senseless, hung by his wrists over like a 200 feet tower, and still talks all happy and optomistic. Oh please -_- I just wanted someone to shut up that boy and make him face reality.
The other character who annoyed me was Sara. Oh my freakin god -_- She over reacted to everything like some paranoid psycho bitch. I mean, sure, what she went through was like hell. Getting raped, pregnant, mistaken for Lalaru, etc… but they could have made her, i dunno. less annoying. I couldn’t relate to her situation at all because she was so freakin annoying.
And don’t get me started on that Hando jackass. How’d he become king anyways??? Everyone hates him, so why don’t they just kill him? It’s not like he’s hitler and has 5 thousand nazi’s who’ll shoot your head off if you oppose him. Hando was just some annoying crazy bastard who was just…really stupid -_-;;
The ONLY character I was able to tolerate was Nabuka, but his voice actor sucked -_-;
The thing I hated most about this anime… the ending. WTF. it just ended. Everyone like… died. And then they lived happily ever after. Wow >_>;; I at least wanted to see Sara and Shuu sent back to there homes because I mean afterall… they were beaten senseless >_>;
Ok, so clearly, I didn’t like this series. There are some series where I can understand why people like them… but this anime was just plain annoying and stupid. I really needed to just let it out.
Overall Score: 65/100
