Iwaki Tomonori is an average 15-year-old boy who likes older women. He happens to have a crush on his teacher, but soon thereafter, learns she has become engaged. He heads home brokenhearted, only to find a 12-year-old girl named Rizel at his home, who he learns the Japanese government has married him to against his will. Furthermore, he learns Rizel is no ordinary girl; she is a biochemically engineered human, and her creators (her "papa"s, as they are often referred to) promise to waive multiple bills of Iwaki's parents in exchange to be allowed to stay at their house, and thus Iwaki's life with Rizel begins.

When my friend recommended this to me I thought to myself "well, she's usually pretty good when it comes to anime, maybe I'll give Rizelmine a little shot." I'm not going to trust my friend so easily again.

Story: What story? Each episode is only 14 minutes long which came as a shock, but the entire series is 26 episodes long. Now if you convert that to 24 minute episodes it's only about 18. The story is really....annoying, and they only really try to build on it during the second half of the anime. The story seems forced and contrived, and ...

I'm mainly writing this review to balance out against the other review. I watched this all the way through and rather enjoyed it.

Story: While stereotypical, it was an amusing romp. The individual episodes go fairly quickly and keep it at a decent pace. Some of the stuff comes from left field, which makes it a bit fun. There is comedy, romance, and good hearted fun.

Art/Sound: It's drawn in a "modern" style, not 90's or large eyes. The Ecchi is fairly tame, and its not all little girl.

Character: The interaction between the characters was pretty amusing. Standouts include the main girl herself, and her Pappa/Mamma guardians ...

So i'll keep my review short as I can cause if your like me you might have a short attention span. Rizelmine holds a special part of me mainly cause it introduce some of my favorite voice actors.

If you don't recognize these names Kappei is know for voicing Ussop from One Piece and Rie pretty much holds the title of tsundere queen for her roles as Louise from Zero No Tsukaima, Taiga From Toradora, Aria From Hidan No Aria you get my point. Now the story is pretty unique even for today's standards but even so its not ...
