Throw in some "supreme comedy" and a story that makes you cry when you least expect it, these cute and sexy girls will explode off your screen! With everyone's cheer of "Leave it to Rio!", Lady Luck'll be with you, too!

One of the things find I generally like about anime is that they almost always have their basis in manga or novels, at least giving it the chance of having a coherent story. Rio: Rainbow Gate! breaks the norm by being based on a pachinko game, and it shows. I didn’t have much in the way of expectations for this series but after a somewhat promising start things started to come apart fairly fast.

Rio's story is, as expected, dreadfully terrible. Our leading character is Rio, a popular dealer and kind of the mascot of the casino she works in, Howard Resort. read more

Why would I give a 9? Because I liked it!

This review will be largely based on the first episode and the synopsis given from the other sites.

Story: The first episode doesn't have a deep story. This is a story about Mint who is a granddaughter of a very wealthy, casino-addicted Mr. Clark who decided to abandon his work and spend his vacation or slack off in a famous casino/hotel/amusement park/beach. This famous casino, Howard Casino, employs a very gorgeous lady named Rio Rollins Tachibana who is rumored to bring luck to any players/gamblers. Yup, this might sound absurd but this is the charm of this read more

There are still 2 more episodes to go, how will it end, we have to wait and see. Then again it is expected that the protagonist Rio will be on top. So without further adieu, how do I rate this? Here's how.

Story- a dreadful number 2.

Well, the story is so simple that the genre described really did much live up, well the ecchi part is co'z every chica in the anime wore very kinky outfits and the ecchi is on the perverted owner of Howard Casino Resort, the comedy is too simple and comedy aspect here is on the fumbling Hellising Aya and the read more

Ignore all the haters, this Anime is VERY GOOD and may even become GREAT!

I have to be honest, episode 1 is pretty boring and it doesn't give a good impression of what the story is all about. Episode 2 and 3 will make the story more clear and from that point onward it's only getting better and better.

Still, if you don't like fan-service, this is not the Anime for you.

Give it some time.

The Animation is pretty neat if I may say so.

Good, nothing remarkably great about it.

With so many characters there should at leas be one character you'd read more

Anime: Sengoku Otome: Momoiro Paradox
Keeping with the theme of girls and various other stuff, this anime is also out of the ordinary. 
reportRecommended by lardeus
Anime: No Game No Life
Both are very colorful series, with games as the main theme.
Both main characters are unnaturally good at gaming.
The main plot in both of them involves the main character to collect an item given to other strong gamers (Gate Cards and Race Pieces)

Anime: Yu☆Gi☆Oh! Duel Monsters
I'm surprised no one has compared these two series yet! Both feature card games and have battle-of-the-week type plots. Also, both have a card game player that has extraordinary skill at the game.

And, if you liked one series you will probably enjoy the other since both are completely and utterly ridiculous.

Anime: Najica Dengeki Sakusen
Najica Blitz Tactics is like an older version of Rio Rainbow Gate.
The most simmilar thing of the serie is that they both have pantyshots the whole serie 
reportRecommended by ShiroiBakeNeko
Anime: C: The Money of Soul and Possibility Control
Both of them have special cards and have relation with money.
The two of them fight in money battles, money games or money univers. 
reportRecommended by MetalRaiders
Anime: Saki
In both the animes there are girls which have special abilities in different games. Rio has special powers in poker games and Saki has special powers in mahjong.
