Away from home for 10 years, Azuma Kazuki had no idea what was awaiting him upon his return. He certainly did not expect to be attacked by dozens of heavily armed people and taken as their prisoner. Fortunately, Azuma's stay in captivity is short. Wielding a strange sentient weapon—known as "Bubuki"—upon her right arm, his childhood friend, Kogane Asabuki, rescues him.

After escaping, Azuma learns that he too has the power to control Bubuki. Together with his new companions, he must revive the Buranki titan named Oubu, that sleeps somewhere deep underground. With this knowledge and purpose, a new path to unearth the truths behind the Buranki opens before Azuma.

Bubuki Buranki felt like it was an experimental show to me. It was sort of like the way it was presented animation, story, character designs etc it's like Sanzigen wanted to test out their new original show using new animation software or perhaps they wanted to use the viewers as a test audience to see if the current direction they are going in is okay.. overall it just felt like this show was released as an experiment for something bigger in the future.Moving on from that, the overall story was okay, it wasn't too bad, nor was it anything special. The plot always felt like read more

Bububu is in my opinion the worst show, I've seen completely in the last season. I forgot the miserabely narrated story immediately after the show ended, sometimes, as the episode ended. The style, and CG was awesome, remembered me often times at Knights of Sidonia (beautiful Anime, go watch it!), but the unbelievably bad choreographed action scenes took so much time, that they pushed and squeezed every piece of dialogue between every fight as fast as they could. For example, after the 12th duel with this Bulletshooting guy, everyone I know recognized, that these fights go nowhere. They are meaningless in every aspect, end without read more

Bubuki Buranki is one of those Anime you can call "Hidden gem".
I think it's really underrated.
Bubuki Buranki focuses on a group of 5 children, while each of them wield a Bubuki, which is a part of a Buranki (A Huge Mech), and only when they come together, they can form the Buranki.
It was an enjoyable one, since there was a good plot, great fights, and not too much talking.
Bubuki Buranki looks in art something similar to 3D (Like 009:Cyborg or Love Live! at some parts) which was beautiful.
The colors were colorful and are pretty bright, and at some scenes it was gray-black and some neon read more

I'll start this review off by saying that I'm no intellectual. Far from it. When I watch my anime I often won't focus too hard on the plot, character development and so on, at least not when it comes to my everyday-casual consumtion of anime. As long as the art, character design, sound/music and the shows overall themes and are cool and executed with class, that alone may be enough for me to rate a show 7-8. (For example, LOTGH wasn't exactly my cup of tea, whereas this show, Bubuki/Buranki was. The storytelling in LOTGH was more intricate and intelligent, but the show as read more
