Synopsis

When Azuma Kazuki returns to Japan after 10 years, he gets assaulted by a group of armed men and becomes their prisoner. Kogane Asabuki, a childhood friend, saves him with a weapon on her right hand known as Bubuki; a weapon with its own mind. Azuma Kazuki, who is a Bubuki user himself, learns about the existence of Bubuki and goes on a journey alongside the companions he has found, in an attempt to find and revive Oubu, a Buranki (titan) who sleeps underground.

Bubuki Buranki felt like it was an experimental show to me. It was sort of like the way it was presented animation, story, character designs etc it's like Sanzigen wanted to test out their new original show using new animation software or perhaps they wanted to use the viewers as a test audience to see if the current direction they are going in is okay.. overall it just felt like this show was released as an experiment for something bigger in the future.Moving on from that, the overall story was okay, it wasn't too bad, nor was it anything special. The plot always felt like read more

Bubuki Buranki is one of those Anime you can call "Hidden gem".
I think it's really underrated.
Bubuki Buranki focuses on a group of 5 children, while each of them wield a Bubuki, which is a part of a Buranki (A Huge Mech), and only when they come together, they can form the Buranki.
It was an enjoyable one, since there was a good plot, great fights, and not too much talking.
Bubuki Buranki looks in art something similar to 3D (Like 009:Cyborg or Love Live! at some parts) which was beautiful.
The colors were colorful and are pretty bright, and at some scenes it was gray-black and some neon read more

I'll start this review off by saying that I'm no intellectual. Far from it. When I watch my anime I often won't focus too hard on the plot, character development and so on, at least not when it comes to my everyday-casual consumtion of anime. As long as the art, character design, sound/music and the shows overall themes and are cool and executed with class, that alone may be enough for me to rate a show 7-8. (For example, LOTGH wasn't exactly my cup of tea, whereas this show, Bubuki/Buranki was. The storytelling in LOTGH was more intricate and intelligent, but the show as read more

Liked: The characters, while being overall simple are still drawn as fun, interesting and stylized enough that I still cared for them and wanted them to succeed in their journey. The story isn't anything really new but it throws enough interesting curve balls that it can still easily grab your attention. Easily the best part of this show is the cgi, since the show is all cg. Compared to most modern anime, the animation and level of detail is truly something impressive to me.
Disliked: The pacing could be a little too slow for an action show at moments.
The anime can read more
