During the early 20th century, along with technological advancements, scientists were able to develop sophisticated magic. The combination of science and sorcery was Makinot, circuits made from spells that were put into objects to bring them to life and even gain a personality. It was developed as a military weapon and has now spread throughout the world.

Akabane Raishin is now attending the Royal Academy to become the best in the world. Accompanied by the lovely teenage girl Yaya, who is actually Raishin's puppet weapon, he plans on rocketing to the top of the class. However, his test scores come nearly dead last although his combat skills and determination are second to none. Raishin has to compete with the deadliest of classmates if he wants to come out as the king.

So I just finished this show today, and I am going to give you guys (and girls) a rating for each aspect of the show, and then I will give an overall review at the bottom.

Story: 8
The story was quite enticing, and it always left me wondering what would happen next, and it always stayed true to the main character's goal, Raishin, fighting along side his partner, Yaya. There were really no filler episodes, as each episode had some sort of meaning or foreshadowing that led into future episodes. There was also a lot of action, and the fighting scenes were very well done and read more

I'm a benevolent and tolerant guy, but there are three things I simply can't stand...
People who order me around
People who oppose me, and...
A complicated plot that is in need of more explanation!

Story: 5
The main character, Raishin, is on a quest to revenge his family and kill the person who wiped out his clan. We join him as he enters a school of some sort and his adventures as he helps out fellow students in trouble.

The problem with the story is that they left out small details that either would have helped explained certain plot holes (Such as why Yaya had to read more

Unbreakable Machine-Doll

For starters, steampunk environments are underdone in the mainstream anime, and when they are done, they are usually not given appropriate screen time. This is the case here, with a few early establishing shots of the city, we see the world the anime takes place in; but that is the end of it before we are withdrawn into the school setting. Everything else about the environment isn’t that interesting, so nothing else to say on the landscapes. This could’ve been a touchdown worthy feature of the anime, which sadly was not taken advantage of; leaving us with monotone forest and school interiors.

First of all, let me warn you that this is my first review, so I am not very adept at it. I'll do my best to give an accurate review of this show, though! I will also try not to give any spoilers.

Story: 7
Assuming that you have not read the light novel or the manga (in which case, you would have watched this show a long time ago), the story if fantastic but slightly confusing. The plot revolves around a futuristic world that has created magic through science. However, humans cannot utilize this magic themselves--rather, they use dolls/machines, or automatons, that can use magic from read more

Anime: Seikoku no Dragonar
Both of them involve an MC with "sub par" abilities assisted by a cute companion who happens to be incredibly strong. It is a Dragon in Seikoku no Dragonar and a Golem/Familiar/Doll in Unbreakable Machine Doll. In addition, the setting creates a very similar feel between the two. Unbreakable Machine Doll has a stronger harem element, but that doesn't mean it's a harem, while Seikoku no Dragonar seems to have more service in my opinion. If you like one, I'm pretty sure you'll like the other.

Anime: Sword Art Online
These two titles both did quite well for their first episode release, as most of us know, one more than the other. What binds these two together in my opinion, is the fact we have a very strong male lead, who seems to be quite powerful to the point we can assume most fights in both shows will go in favor of the main character.
Now, both series try to mask this sense of Over Powered-ness, which offers some nice action scenes.

The plot has some similarities, like the mortality of every character, which can be exploited in both series. These series  read more
