Looking forward to the Drifters anime that starts in ocotber?
Yeah, so am I, and especially more so after having watched this prolouge/OVA.
Preliminary I'm going to say that this is the anime to look out for in Q4 '16, at least that's what I want to say after having watched this OVA, becuase this is some excellent shit!
So what's this all about then?
A samurai dude is moratally wounded after a battle, he's then transported to a mysterious hallway, and from there he's transported to another world, in which he's found by two elven boys, and then handed over to an archer whom takes him to some
ruins and after a while he recovers, and then more stuff happens, but I'll have you watch the anime to find out what that is.
This anime is bloody and brutal, so stay away if you don't like violence or bloody scenes, otherwise go ahead, watch it, becuase it's pretty awesome.
It's actually not much more you can say without taking away the plot, but by all means, go and watch this anime, becuase it's brilliant, and quite easily worth your time, especially more so if you're looking for awesome battle scenes and a story with an interesting concept, and amazing looking characters, and an unique artstyle (actually it looks like Shaft mixed Hellsing Ultimate with Fate/Zero and Bakemonogatari (it's not actually Shaft that's making the anime)).
Anyway, back to the tangent, watch this anime, you'll probably enjoy it.
You are about to read some bad English. and I am really sorry about it. I am not a native English speaker.
This OVA is good, not that much but still good.
Action was good, Comedy wasn't it was just sub-par.
Now I am not really good at typing so I will keep it short.
Story = 7/10 (Story is good)
Characters = 6/10 (Characters weren't truly that good some could even say they were cliched.)
Animation/Art = 6/10 (Animation quality was good)
Combat = 7/10 (Well in this OVA we didn't see much of a action so I only gave mark on what I can see.)
Enjoyment = 6/10 (Loved
the balance between serious scene and some comedic content.)
Overall = 6/10 (Once again the comedy needs to serious work but overall expectations were met. This should hold me off for a while until the main series airs in fall.)
I recommend this anime to everyone who loves Violence, Historical, Magical, Elves, Demi-Human, Human from Another world, War, Darkness vs light genres anime's. I am 100% sure main series will be going to way above than this pesky OVA so don't worry they started it good we just have to wait for the main series now.
In all honesty, this was kind of pointless to make. This special is just an episode with the first episodes of the actual series combined into one. I didn't see anything really special setting the scenes apart from the ones in the series. I may just have a problem with it because I watched after the first 2 episodes aired, but still, someone could skip the first 2 episodes if they saw this first and remember what happens; either way, you get the same information. I'll give it a 6/10 because this good to get you a little pumped for the series,
but it won't hold up as well if you watch it after seeing the first 2 episodes of the series.
This was basically the same thing as watching the first couple of episodes of the first season.
If you plan to watch the first season you can skip on watching this special edition. It was released a few months before the main series began and it only showed the same story that would later be released as episode 1 and 2 of the first season. Then again who am I to say since I watched both of them.
The story is about people being picked up from our world and transported to another world where all sorts of fantastic beings live along side with humans. The interesting
thing is that these people who are being transported by a mysterious individual are not just random people but rather great historical figures from the earth. I would not mention their names here but let’s just say that prepare yourself for a surprise.
The first few minutes of the story might feel to be centered around one guy and rightly so, because this dude is a major badass amongst badasses. Though I can assure you that the whole storyline is far from about just one guy.
The sub titles felt a little below par but nonetheless the anime in itself is a fascinating watch.
