Synopsis

The students who enroll at the special, all expenses paid institute known as Kouryou Academy High School possess soul powered weapons known as Blaze. Established by the Dorn Agency and run by a gothic lolita named Sakuya Tsukumo, this school trains students on how to use these weapons in real fights so that after they graduate they can join the Dorn Agency's special peacekeeping corps.

The story of Absolute Duo begins on the first day of Tooru's freshman year and starts with a special Screening Rite at the opening ceremony which pits potential students against each other in a ten minute battle where only the winners will be allowed entrance into the school. After passing that first hurdle, Tooru meets a mysterious girl named Julie Sigtuna and encounters the even bigger hurdle of being made into her partner, which requires them to share a room for the duration of their stay at the academy. With new enemies on the horizon, will these two be able to learn how to coexist long enough to graduate?

Background

Episode 1 was previewed at a screening at Kadokawa Cinema Shinjuku in Tokyo on December 28, 2014. Regular broadcasting began on January 4, 2015.

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
