Characters & Voice Actors
Not the best anime, but Hidan No Aria was to me an enjoyable one, and since it is highly criticized, I decided to write a review.
The background of the story is attractive, I mean, studying in order to be able to fight criminals sounds nice, and it leads to some nice action scenes. Although the plot isnt that convincing, it is not a boring one. The beginning of the scenario is a commonplace, it starts with a highschool student, at the beginning of yet another year. The highschool not being seen as a true highschool, it can help to forget the number of anime possibily seen starting like this.
As for the art, it is a recent anime, so it is pretty good overall. For the soundtracks, the openingending, I found them pretty catchy (the singer for the opening is May'n, also known for the opening of Accel World), especially the opening.
And now, the part that contributes the most (as well as the storyline) to Hidan No Aria's bad reception, the characters. Basically, the story revolves around two main characters, one guy (Kinji) and one girl (Aria), a tsundere. Obviously people who dislike the basic concept of tsunderes will probably dislike this anime, since there is a non negligeable part of it around her. She has everything to fits the cliche, she is even voiced by Rie Kugimiya, so your point of view will also depends if you got bored of her tsundere voice or not. Kinji, on the other hand, is less of a stereotype, and is entertaining to watch. He displays ... quite a unique trait.
So, overall, this anime is more of a good distraction than a breathtaking anime, but still, isn't that the point of animes? From my point of view, if you are fine with tsundere/gun or sword fighting, give it a try, in the worst case you'd lose an hour or so. read more
Hidan no Aria ...
Aria the Scarlett ammo ...
In my opinion this has been a very enjoyable anime.
The story revolves around our male protagonist Tohyama Kinji.
The events that happen are in a good and logical sequence, very similar to the light novel. Also in my opninion the story of Hidan no Aria (I like the name better in Japanese) is not just an ordinary story. Yes of course, it is about a dude attending a high school, but that's not what this anime is about. Especially when you have read the light novel you know this is true. Also for the people that have read the light novel, I do recommend to watch this anime :) .
So, if you are interested in Action and Comedy you should definitely watch this anime! The balance between Action and Comedy is very well done (I think more animes should balance their genres better). . . . (8)
About sound and art ...
Let's just put these subjects together.
The art good. But I mean, come on, who cares that much about art if you just have a nice story with good development?
The sceneries are always well done, but are not really the parts you need to worry about. Sometimes the backgrounds are a little empty and need more people there, but that's all, really.
The sound fits the sceneries and the voices fit the characters, which of course is always hard to decide ... I think they thought this out pretty good. . . . (7)
On to the characters :)
The characters are very surprising, really.
They definitely are not the kind of characters you would expect in these kind of genres. But putting the expectations aside, the characters do fit the events very well and I very much enjoyed the personalities processed in the characters.
In the beginning there isn't much character development, but as the story progresses also do the characters and they start to mature a little bit more after each event. This is what I liked very much. . . . (8)
I don't think I have more to tell about the story, sound and art and characters
I really enjoyed the anime and the light novel so I recommend both of them, though I know there are people out there who don't like reading :P.
I you really don't like reading, try the manga, that's also awesome.
I definitely liked them myself and told a lot of my friends, who also watch anime, to watch Hidan no Aria.
But in the end this is all my opinion, haha. If you want to confirm my opinions you should watch the anime yourself and submit a review for other potential watchers!
But long story short:
Good anime, nice balance between genres, nice story, good art and sound, unexpected personalities and good development. Very enjoyable :D

They both have the "boy-meet-girl" trend. They both feature a tsudere, shorty, and powerful (in terms of battles) character voiced by Rie Kugimiya. Both produced by J.C. Staff.
I bet you love watching the same anime twice, right? Right. I bet you love watching the same anime twice, except the second anime is 11 episodes shorter and even more poorly written right? Right. I bet you :love: when a studio releases the same anime under the title of another, waters it down, and deconstructs the already poorly crafted characters they had to begin with to create more profit with minimum effort right? RIGHT.
If you hate one series, then be prepared because you'll hate the other too! The cliches and uncreative writing will be sure to impress you to a new level of rage. How does J.C. manage to keep churning out the same anime? Just... how?
The female leads in both of these shows are almost exactly the same. Both shows have a couple of girls around the main lead, although it's obvious who is going to win. Both anime revolve around the main female and male fighting together. The main male character is quite a bit better in Hidan no Aria than in Shakugan no Shana, in my opinion.
its so painfully obvious that these two are similar in every way possible.
Same type of 'Tsundere' female lead
A lot of action involved in the two. Both has really fiesty yet cute Tsundere girls in them. If you are looking for some action combined with romance,comedy or maybe even moe,this anime may be a good choice for you.
Shakugan no Shana, Zero no Tsukaima, Hidan no Aria, and Toradora are exactly the same. character wise.
Louise, Shana, Aria, and Taiga are all girls with a petite figure but are set on making the male protagonist, Saito, Yuji, Kinji, and Ryuji their 'slave'.
Hidan no Aria and Shakugan no Shana both involve fighting and missions.
Toradora and Zero no Tsukaima both are more focused on school life and shoujo. However, I am sure, you will find that ALL of them are the same because of the protagonist, and all four anime are INCREDIBLY AMAZING.
It's a similar story line, Aria has the same personality as Shana. So Hidan no Aria is pretty much Shakugan no Shana with guns, but is shorter.
-Both heroines are tsundere and have same seiyuu
-Both heroines are using katana ^-^
-And both heroines have a favourite food
Both are the same—a sword wielding tsundere girl comes outta nowhere and messes up the main guy's life. Romance blossoms~
in both main female lead her tsundere type :) ,
both tell a story of a high school boy who get in to a weird mysterious
journey after following a girl,
in both main male lead have some mysterious power source,
both series contain Harem/Action/Ecchi scenes,
both present a school life setting,
in both series main male character just try to be normal but
then he get dragged into a whole weird situations,
in both the 2 leading characters get hidden feelings for each other,
in both the main male lead surrounding by other girls love which make the female
Both are by JC staff and have a tsundere lead with the same voice actor. They also have quite a bit of action.
Whenever there is trouble around the city, someone needs to stop their ambitions. It follows two characters; one who is a stubborn/tsundere personality who takes on the fighting most of the time, while the other, a male character, is basically their partner. Their goal is stopping people from either world domination, or monsters that are attacking people. Has a good variety of action, comedy, and romance.
Shana is a supernatural show that Flame Hazes are present to fight monsters. Aria uses guns to battle off other people.
Both main heroines are similar in almost every way. Both are "boy meets girl suddenly and become close" types of animes. Great either way No Shana is longer but they are both really good animes.
The guy in both Anime is accused of being a pervert when he really isn't one or isn't intentionally trying to perv. As for the main female character, she easily becomes jealous, she has a temper and has issues of some kind.
in first place I think in a "shakugan no shana" based anime, the story for some reason remember me that.
but I knew there is another anime with a tsundere character, and a slave-boy-situation. fortunately, there is a difference, boy is not who appear suddenly in another world... just the girl, and both are from the same world (I think).
Both female leads have the same actitude, The male leads are also similar in some ways, Zero no Tsukaima is based on magic instead of guns
Zero no Tsukaima and Hidan no Aria are not similar in period but have others similarities like : Seiyuu Rie Kugimiya as a pink-haired tsundere, a devoted slave and to finish .. all other girls have huge breasts.
They both feature a pink haired Kugimiya voiced loli tsundere, who calls the main protagonist her slave. The settings are very different but the character relationships are essentially the same, the tsunderes being so similar you'll think they're the same person.
Same type of 'Tsundere' female lead
Both animes revolve around a girl and a guy protagonist.
The girl, Aria, has dubbed the guy, Kinji, her slave.
This also leads to them doing missions, it is extremely similar to The Familiar of Zero.
Except they have guns.
both are by JC staff and have a tsundere lead with the same voice actor., they also have quite a bit of action.
Both are harem anime , and the female lead are both Tsundere.
