Synopsis

Battle Programmer Shirase, also known as BPS, is a free programmer with super hacking abilities who doesn't work for money. What he does work for is certainly something that only people like him would appreciate. But, his demeanor certainly doesn't suit the jobs he is hired for. With the evil King of America causing trouble via the internet, Shirase is nothing but busy as each new adventure brings even more interesting people into the picture.

Story: Unfortunately, the story was cut off after 15 episodes, and although the 15 episodes do tend to stick out on their own, the story quickly falls into a routine of Shirase being in his house, through some accident ends up in an uncomfortable position, and his next employer(always an Akizuki) walks in and sees him like this. The story quickly progresses through the various cybercrime cases Shirase takes, this routine repeating itself across each one.

Art: Standard anime artwork, nothing new or innovative

Sound: The voice actors for this anime are spot-on. No men with girly voices, rather, they all have the voices corresponding to their read more

This series are entertaining, the most interesting part is making a story about a programmer and his works in a fun way.
The story is a little of suspense, a little of romance, a few of fanservice and a lot of comedy, the fun part is how he manipulates the computers be by PC or cell phone by its programming to help the people hiring him in turn but instead of asking for money for his services he asks for very rare gadgets or nerd items.

Not the best anime I've seen but more entertaining than most anime that had come out in last years mostly because read more

This Anime is way too short for a good character development. The characters exept for Shirase itself have too little screentime. And it is not explainend why Shirase like Amano so much, a bit more backstory is importand too understand some thinks in this Anime. To be fair this Anime is not completly crap, maybe its a problem of buget why they made it so short. If they ever made a sequeal than please with more character development. 15 episodes, each 10 minutes long is way too short!

The story follows Shirase a super hacker known as BPS and its this name that is (in)famous for being able to use a phone or a computer to create defense barriers and the like and gets him hired by all sorts of government people.

The show tends to run on a certain formula, through out 15 episode arcs are split into three episodes each, and each arc we find Shirase being hired to solve a case using his computer skills, he also tends to end up in a compromising situation every time his employer comes to visit him in which said employer will ramble to himself read more
