drama sci-fi shoujo ai yuri


Five years ago, something horrifying happened on Kamioki Island. Something so nightmarish that it stripped all memory from Mari Wakatake's mind even as it left every other human on the island dead in its wake! Now enrolled against her will at an isolated girl's academy, Mari is unaware that hidden eyes are watching her, waiting for her memory to return.

Buried in her psyche is the most terrifying secret of all: while Mari was the only human who lived, she may not have been the only survivor! As something in a female skin invades Kaihou Academy, Mari's only hope may lie in a strange girl to whom she is inexplicably drawn yet cannot trust.

This animé actually has few true "plot twists" that would surprise anyone who has seen more than a few animés. But mysteries aren't everything in storytelling, what distinguishes a good story is when you know what is coming but you're still biting your nails and hoping that it does, or doesn't, happen. And this is what this animé managed to do, at least to me.

There are two parts to this animé as has been said, the high school/romance part and the sci-fi part. For those hoping for quick-ass action, avoid this title, battles are few and generally quickly over with, they often serve to increase read more

Blue Drop ~Tenshi-tachi no Gikoyku~ (The Angels Play) is the adaption to the manga Blue Drop (which I haven't read). One of my friends sent me a link to it, and I decided to check it out which I'm grateful for.

The greatest assets in this anime is the art. The art is superbly smooth and well done, details couldn't have been more and everything just looks so realistic. Already from the beginning you can see it, the beauty in the art. It is sparkling and dazzling and leaves a taste of wanting more.

The storyline can be a bit hard to understand first, it's more read more

The following review would never be written if it weren't for the was very brought the show to a whole different level...anyway...

Blue Drop (BD) is a combination of slice of life school drama and sci-fi water action anime. In a nutshell, BD is not meant for those who only seeks action (slice of life HINT HINT). I would say about 70% of the show is slice of life-ish and 30% action.

The story itself is pretty easy to follow. Nothing too complicated, though I didn't expect the ending to be like that... It was a bit lacking at the end though due to read more

Blue Drop is one of those anime series that are good but could have used a bit more work to make them great. When it first aired, I was looking forward to this series since I'm a bit of a shoujo-ai-fan (as 80% of male anime fans) so I gave it a shot. Here are my thoughts after finishing it:

The story is interesting and original, thus I gave it an 8. I would have graded it higher but there are some parts that for a shoujo-ai/sci-fi anime, it just don't add up. There were times when I would have wished a more sci-fi story than read more

Anime: Simoun
Simoun and Blue Drop offer a mix of shoujo-ai and giant flying ships, a combination that does not occur all that often. In both cases there is a mostly female cast and a war backdrop that fuels the plot is balanced by the interaction between the several characters. Simoun is set in a somewhat fantastical world and follows the clash between religion and military accomplishments while Blue Drop takes place in a world that is more or less realistic

Anime: Figure 17: Tsubasa & Hikaru
Figure 17 and Blue Drop have the same basic setting in which a young and lonely female protagonist forms a strong bond with a non human girl. Both have a strong sci-fi element without discounting slice of life moments that introduce character developments as the story progresses. Blue Drop has yuri undertones that are absent in Figure 17 but they both offer a balanced take on daily life drama spiced with aliens and adventure.

Anime: Noir
The main character of Noir is an amnesiac, somewhat similar to Mari-san from Blue Drop. Both the leading heroines have a slight yuri interest in one another.
Blue Drop has scifi as a second genre, Noir is a girls-with-guns,adventure type of genre but they both share a mystery/suspenseful subgenre/ending.
The central alien race in BD are all female, while Noir has extraordinary female leads, enemies and characters.

Anime: Iriya no Sora, UFO no Natsu
Main heroines of both titles have to fight alone opposite alien invadors to save Earth and person they love. Both have quite tragic but not totally bad end 
reportRecommended by Nachtwandler_21
Anime: Hoshi no Koe
Both series contains science fiction theme that explores a romance relationship that is doomed to fail.

Both anime features tragedy that offers romance, drama, action, and emotions.

Anime: Element Hunters
The OPs are very similar and give similar touchy feeling. Both are about kids on some important mission. Though E.H. has more action, and Blue Drop has more romance and psychology.
