An ancient God called Ranga awakens on an isolated island in the South Pacific where it has been slumbering forgotten by mankind. Three sisters living in Tokyo—Minami, Ushio, and Yuuhi Shimabara—discover they have inherited this Island Kingdom, along with the huge God. When Ranga shows up in Tokyo, it soon becomes a source of wonder and conflict for the three sisters that control Ranga, the people who want to destroy it, and ones who want to use it.

I was curious going into the series as to how well they could tell both the story and have good characters with only about 15mis per episode. It was worth my curiousity, as both the story and characters were both well done regardless of time constaints.

After the first couple of episodes I no longer noticed the shortness of the episodes as I was too busy enjoying the shows. The OST was lacking for me, but the sound quality was good, and the artwork was average but I think that worked better for the series.

Its a seres thats worth checking out as ...

Mixed Feelings
First season (24 episodes) are great. Second season (24 episodes), well, it's hit and miss with more misses than hits. The attempts at humor go up a few notches during the 2nd half, and that is to the show's detriment. Which is why it managed to become a relief when the over-the-top final act of the show begins, even if it is rushed and confusing as hell.

Preliminary (22/48 eps)
I watched 22 episodes of this series. I gave it far more chances than it deserves.

To say the least, this is the worst anime series I have ever seen. The story was just undesirable from the beginning. I couldn't connect with the characters or even care about them... ANY. As for animation, it was decently made. Nothing to gawk at. The box and cover art is misleading because it portrays girls in colorful and interesting looking body paint and near nudity... but in the show there are only a few sparse scenes involving such. Its like making a movie about the moon with box art ...
