Utterly average and despite all the gory violence and action, boring.

PLOT: Well to be honest I wasn’t really expecting much from this series when I read the synopsis, so I was actually surprised that I quickly became interested in the two main characters Lan and Sonnet – they are both quite well developed despite this only having 5 episodes (well despite this being called ‘Blue Sonnet’ Lan is the true main character).

“Blue Sonnet” is yet another case of an OVA trying to cram too much story into a short runtime. The scenes feel disjointed, the backstories messy, the plot devices hackneyed, and the characters unsympathetic.

Low-budget, boring, and very campy. There are a couple action scenes that would make for a cool looking trailer but, sadly, that's the only thing of value here. The seriousness of the show is undercut by the ridiculous plot and characters. The villain looks straight out of a comedy show and is completely unbelievable. The low-budget and lack of facial animations made all the characters feel lifeless. The show seems to transition between light teen drama and boring action drama which makes the whole thing feel predictable. If they had made this an actual rated R type of show then maybe it could have worked, ...
