Synopsis

Individuals who can materialize weapons from their soul are called "Blazers," and they attend Kouryou Academy High School in order to harness their abilities. Each student is required to partner with another, in the hopes that one day, the pair can attain the power of Absolute Duo.

Tooru Kokonoe hopes to attend this academy in order to gain power after his sister and friends were slain by a mysterious man. However, at the opening ceremony, he is forced to duel against the person sitting next to him, with the loser being expelled. As Tooru prepares to give the match his all, it is not a weapon that manifests from his soul, but a shield, an irregularity which catches the attention of a foreign student named Julie Sigtuna.

Have you ever had trouble spotting a "bottom of the barrel" title? Well here's some quick tips to help you out:

-Is there a typical school setting?

-Is your protagonist a bishonen with some kind of "unique"/hax super power?

-Does it go from tension less fights to school rom com?

-Unnecessary fanservice?

-Is there a beach or hot spring episode?

-Is there a lot of instances where your MC is viewed as a pervert due to stupid misunderstandings?

-Is he easily flustered from anything involving a girl?

-Is there a love interest story that goes nowhere?

If you answer yes to those then congrats! You've now entered the basement dwelling level of anime titles. read more

The writers might as well take out the "duo" and slap in "harem" instead cuz duo just isn't cutting it.

A bland anime with some generic harem characters. Absolute duo may seem like your average action/harem anime, because it is.

Story: 2/10
First off let me remind you that the plot is set in a world far, far away where girls possess all the cup sizes from A to Z cups. So don't be suprised if they turn out to be the only thing worth watching in the whole show.

Absolute Duo is about your average male protagonist who gains a special power and wants to seek read more

(This has been adapted from my reddit thread)

Wanting to be stronger is something that a lot of people strive for. And that isn't just in the sense of lifting weights to tone one's muscles. There is strength of mind in the form of intelligence or strength of spirit in having the courage to do what's right. But no matter its form, strength isn't something that is easily obtained. Hardship and difficulties are what give shape to such strength, and subsequently determine what strength is ultimately earned. This is what Absolute Duo tries to convey, but without much strength to support even itself.

Yeah! This is my first review of Winter 2015. Oh yeah. Before I get on with the review just let me put some more nails in the coffin which now lies the ecchi jokes. Excuse me for a second.

Ok. I'm done.

STORY (2):

Absolute Duo or Absolute Hatred follows these two bland characters by the name of Tor Kokonoe & Julie Sigtuna who attend Koryo Academy where they are trained in combat skills using Blaze. Blaze are supernatural weapons that suit different combat skills.

Let me tell you that I have 0 expectations when going into this anime. The concept is boring and it is an read more
