I found out about Steel Angel Kurumi Zero after having seen the entire US DVD release of the anime, and after having read a significant portion of the manga. Needless to say, I was excited to find out that Zero contained my favorite character from the manga, Excelia. I eagerly downloaded the fansubs, hoping I'd get to see her in action.

What did I get? Well, definitely not what I expected. First and foremost, the point of view never leaves the apartment that they live in. That rather disappointed me.

Second, no action whatsoever. It's just a straight up drama. read more

Steel Angel Kurumi Zero is the final installment of the Kurumi story. Kurumi season 1 is in the Past, Kurumi 2 is in the Present, and Kurumi Zero is in the (distant) future.

Wha?? That was pretty much how I felt throughout the entirety of Steel Angel Kurumi Zero. Having watched all of the Steel Angel Kurumi series up until this point, I was expecting yet another nonsensical romantic comedy that may or may not be about girl on girl action, but instead I was treated to something much different. Steel Angel Kurumi Zero is a flat out romantic drama. Yes, that�s right, Steel Angel Kurumi Zero isn�t a comedy at all. Shocked? I know I was. Once it set in that Zero was a dramatic anime I was able to somewhat enjoy it, but when it was read more

I love Steel Angel Kurumi, so of course I wanted to watch all the rest of the anime series that went with it. This was definitely one that could be skipped. SAK Zero is a prequel, but it feels more like an AU series. I'm glad this was only 3 episodes because I don't think I could have handled any more.
