The story follows a young genius university professor who is able to learn any language. He is asked to decipher a code used in wireless communication: the Luger Code, developed by werewolves, enemies to mankind. Startled to find that he cannot decipher the code and desperate to study it, the professor embarks on a journey to capture a living werewolf to aid him.
Luger Code 1951 began as a story idea that Haruto Haneki submitted for the Shounen Jump+ × Animax Anime Scenario Award contest (少年ジャンプ＋×アニマックス アニメシナリオ大賞). The theme of the contest was "your original scenario in the image of Shounen Jump." The contest accepted unpublished entries that could be made into a short anime, 30 to 40 minutes in estimated length. Haneki's scenario won the Grand Prize, winning him 2 million yen, a manga adaptation on Shounen Jump+, and an anime adaptation. Akira Akatsuki, who was one of the judges in the competition, drew the manga.
The anime premiered on the Shonen Jump+ website on October 14 at 12:00 a.m. (effectively October 15 at midnight). The anime also ran on the Hikari TV service on October 15 at 8:00 p.m. and on the Animax channel on October 22 at 8:00 p.m. A making-of video aired alongside the anime as a special.
I wounder if some of you were fooled too. I thought this was going to a full length show when I put it on my to watch list, but that was my fault for not recognizing it was just an ona. I'm still glad I watched though. The story is simple (I can't add more than the summary without spoiling it) and many things aren't explained, but it was really enjoyable. Like every other time when you have military people, you have that one group of idiots, but the main two characters were actually pretty fun guys. The only other
major thing I can say is that this has a really cool concept and it would be nice to see it in a full length show, but sadly, I doubt that'll happen. For me it was cool enough to get an 8/10. You're opinion will probably differ depending on what you expect to see.
Well I've actually been waiting for the adaptation of Luger Code 1951 for a bit now and can say I'm not disspointed. Extremely happy how it came out.
Story - I previously read and left the only review for Luger Code 1951's with the assumption it was getting a fully series adaptation. I was extremely disspointed to learn it was getting a one episode ona release, which is why I'm giving an 8. Otherwise, the story sticks pretty straight forward to the , with little things here and there that aren't that big of a deal. More of a bit of a rant/pleading at
Art - I think the art was pretty good and straight forward with it's animation. Studio Deen apparently has some trouble with its quality of animation and I saw a little bit why, mainly because a few scenes looked a little out of whack, but nothing terrible. Great on the eyes and enjoyable.
Soubd - This sounded amazing honestly. No intro or outro, but there was a credit's scene that had some amazing music playing. The ona was just beautiful on my ears and everything sounded great with the show.
Character - God I can't empasize how well the characters are, espexially Yonaga, the wolf girl that the entire "plot" is centered around. I loved her character in the and I think she's even better in the ona. She was pretty serious toned in the , and that translated over well. They also gave her a few scenes of slight cominc relief that eased tension. She aslo had a couple scenes when she blushed, and god damn it was so cute. Love her so much, defintely a new top tier character. Every other character was played extremely well compared to the .
Enjoyment - Now this is obviously the most biased category because I just happen to enjoy this genre. I also love cutesy type moments, which Luger Code had a few of. This is something that just appealed to me extremely well.
Honestly, I feel this series would get so much feedback and praise if it got a whole season. There's so much you can do with the storyline and I think it would make an amazing action/romance/adventure genre. For the love of god please someone make this a full length series. Yonaga is one of my favorite characters from Fall 2016 so far, and I don't know if that'll change anytime soon. I'm so happy I was able to watch this, and I hope other people can see the enjoyment I saw in it.
If you like cute and amazing wolf girls, Yonaga is the one for you my friend.
WRITING A REVIEW FOR A ONE EPISODE ONA! WHY?1 BECAUSE I KNOW A LOT OF YOU WILL JUDGE THIS IN A SHALLOW WAY
THIS ANIME WAS ADAPTED FROM A SHORT STORY SO THERE ISNT ANYTHING MORE THAN THIS .
THIS STORY IS PURE MILITARY AND VERY ENJOYABLE ,I WAS ONE OF THOSE PEOPLE WHO THOUGHT IT WAS GOING TO BE A FULL 12 EP ANIME BUT THEN FOUND OUT THE HARSH TRUTH .
This anime is worth it
I am writing this review to support that someday someone would write a full story in a manga or a novel more than just a short story
,if someone is reading this please support the writer , I HOPE SOMEDAY I FIND THIS A FULL STORY BECAUSE ITS JUST AMAZING.
I honestly expected this to be a full length series, but evidently, it's just an ONA. Which makes me wonder why the overall quality of the animation and art is so sub par. And then I remembered it's Studio Deen.
The story is based on a 3 chapter manga and shouldn't be expected to provide too many answers. The world building was sub par, leaving me with a rather vague idea of what's going on in the world. There's an opinion that the story is supposed to be about military, but I really didn't feel that that was the main focus of the story. The main
character had almost no connection with the military other than being hired. The female lead is a wolf girl. I'm not really sure what the author was really gunning for with this.
In the end, all I got out of it was a interesting idea for "humanity's next enemy" and some rather poorly animated action scenes.
The studio that made this, Studio Deen, is renown for rather poor animation quality. Most notably, Studio Deen picking up Log Horizon and taking it through the gutter. There were a lot of art problems and animation problems that really shouldn't be there for a one off ONA like this.
All in all, it's rather disappointing that there isn't anymore to the story, but at the same time, fortunate that Studio Deen doesn't get to mess up the experience some more.
