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

Rio rainbow gate is a very odd show. Revolving around the antics of Rio and the side characters, they are bombarded by rival dealers who want to challenge her and obtain the gates. MAL has the tags ecchi, and comedy. However, the comedy in this show is non-existant; I found myself laughing at the show instead of with it. The ecchi is rather moderate and usually dedicated to one part of an episode or outfit oriented.

I found that the plot was actually the strongest point of the show, although not by much. It follows the average showdown per episode, and when the dealers battle they read more

Hmmmmm, where do I begin with an anime like this. There's a lot to say... so how bout, I start with the reception it seems to have received for once. Rio: Rainbow Gate is probably one of the most hated anime of 2011. I've been trying to look at the reason for this from an objective stand point (at least... trying to put in as little of my own bias as possible), and I think I may have figured out why this anime doesn't work. Its a jumble of parts from different anime. Let me explain.

What are probably the 2 main complaints of this anime? 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

Recommendations

Keeping with the theme of girls and various other stuff, this anime is also out of the ordinary.
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.
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
Both of them have special cards and have relation with money.
The two of them fight in money battles, money games or money univers.
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.
