Individuals who can materialize weapons from their soul are called "Blazers," and they attend Kouryou Academy High School in order to harness their abilities. Each student is required to partner with another, in the hopes that one day, the pair can attain the power of Absolute Duo.

Tooru Kokonoe hopes to attend this academy in order to gain power after his sister and friends were slain by a mysterious man. However, at the opening ceremony, he is forced to duel against the person sitting next to him, with the loser being expelled. As Tooru prepares to give the match his all, it is not a weapon that manifests from his soul, but a shield, an irregularity which catches the attention of a foreign student named Julie Sigtuna.

Where is the endgame to getting stronger??? It has a good story. Don't get me wrong. The graphics are phenomenal. But, what is the bigger detail?? Lots of smaller details are referenced and we have a good competitive view, but, why develop into reaching "Absolute Duo" if there isn't a big threat to the world? I haven't seen a good enough reasoning behind it yet. I'm giving the anime an 8/10 because it has a good story and awesome animation. But, it definitely could be quite a bit better. The characters were good considering their circumstances. The situation with miyabe was a good tragedy. It ...

Mixed Feelings
An intriguing idea of a school where pupils have weapons that have sprouted from their souls is presented in Absolute Duo, an anime series based on the light novel by Takumi Hiiragiboshi. The execution, however, falls short in a number of ways, making for a lackluster viewing experience despite its intriguing notion.

Animations and Visuals:
Absolute Duo's animations and graphics are passable but fall short of making an impression. The character designs are uninspired and unoriginal, sharing many of the same characteristics as those in other anime shows. Even though the action scenes are well orchestrated, they lack the power and flow necessary to be genuinely ...

So we're diving into the whole Harem and Ecchi vibe here. Don't expect some epic story or deep character stuff, theres not really a huge development. Its more about chuckling a bit and a fan service party. Not the go-to if you're hunting for a mind-blowing plot or characters evolving into something super profound. There's a cool factor in how the characters throw around their unique talents. If you're all about "cool" visuals mixing it up with some spicy scenes and a bit of a harem twist, this could be something you can enjoy. It's like a slight visual treat with that extra side of ...
