This bold account follows the brave exploits of Sergeant "Packy" Perkins and his unit... of rabbits! Join Packy and Private "Bota" Botasky as they resolve an Iranian hostage crisis. Watch these commando-style bunnies through an anthropomorphic lens as events unfold and violence erupts.
Note: This anime has been provisionally set to "Finished Airing" due to lack of official information regarding future installments.
Cute, fluffy bunnies represent the american (a somewhat obscure japanese pun. Rabbit in japanese is "Usagi" U.S.A G.I) decked out in full tactiCOOL gear fighting camels, representing arabs.
It works suprisingly well and I would recommend it to all my friends.
The CG in this show is absolutely stunning. Honestly, it blew me away how detailed EVERYTHING is. From the rabbits down to the guns. The designs are impeccable as are the tactics portrayed. No complaints here at all. Worth noting is the "camera" effects it achieves, Very impressive.
The sounds as well are superb, with my only
gripe being a fairly minor one, that of the misrepresentation of how effective suppressors are at muffling gunshots. But, it's such a common mistake it doesn't really detract at all. The voices fit perfectly, the guns are accurate and all is well.
The characters are all fine and believable. You know...as far as tactical rabbits go anyway.
Rabbits at war, the idea is very original I've never seen anything so awesome lol. I thought this anime was going to be a joke because of the name, but man I was real surprised. The action is so intense and enjoyable, but its quite predictable.
The art surprised me by how beautiful the CG was, everything is so detailed and flawless. Another quality I liked was how they didn't rely on blood spilling out all over the place and they could have done that if they wanted to.
The sound was epic, the music adds to the drama and I love the sounds of the explosions
Best anime of the season no doubt, I recommend it to anyone, but mostly if you're into war.
Damn I can't wait for the next episode, it sucks they're taking their sweet time I hope it airs monthly at least.
Play first person shooter games? Yes? Then you'll enjoy bunnies shooting and killing other animals in Call of Duty: Bunny Ops. No? Then there's much better ways to waste time.
STORY: This is the computer animated version of a manga probably no one has ever heard of (Called Apocalypse Meow in the US).
To tell the truth there's really just not much to say or to even look forward to in CS1, but not because there's only (And probably there will be only) one episode, but it just doesn't do anything at all to stand out, I mean besides visually.
The experience of watching this anime is exactly
like watching someone play a first person shooter with gorgeous graphics with said person going through the level on the easiest difficulty, the player is pretty much not going to be touched at all and you'll just be sitting there, bored.
The only actual difference here to your standard shooter video games is:
Instead of humans killing each other, animals like bunnies and camels are pulling the triggers.
The story is very predictable to the point of becoming yawn inducing boring, but it has enough flash and bullet fire to at least keep some watchers interested (The word interested is being used loosely here).
However, this anime is, in plenty of ways, pretty offensive to several kinds of viewers.
Especially towards american audiences, middle eastern audiences, and people who like/love animals.
The main characters are american who are portrayed as bunnies, and the joke is that bunny/rabbit is called usagi in japan, so the creator designed bunnies to be the americans because the first three letters are u-s-a, then g-i, and they are fighting in a middle eastern desert against the people there, whom are portrayed as camels and goats.
To say it's bad in taste and questionably racist is an understatement.
But honestly despite that, I found it to be very creative and I support the idea to some extend, but the direction of it is just bland, questionable, and just plain boring, and maybe it should have in a different director's hands to be able to work out.
ANIMATION: Incredible and amazing computer animation that's almost pixar quality, even the animals running around shooting each other look believable yet the entire look of it is just silly and ridiculous, and it's easy to be turned away from it.
SOUND: Well, like everything else, it's what you can expect from a shooter video game would sound like: bang, bang, BOOM!
It doesn't stand out like the visuals do.
Voice acting is fine in either language, but since it's in english now, that's the version to listen to.
+ Great computer animation that even Pixar would take notice.
+ Visually creative.
- Generic plot and boring setting.
- Potentially offensive.
- Just one episode isn't enough to hold interest or even gain interest.
If you're in the frat boy crowd who plays shooter games, this is an excellent way to burn... well 25 minutes, while the rest of us just prefer to be behind the "controller" when shooting something.
Eye candy, superb sound, violence--That's about it. I would say the show is really about two military men who are "pros" doing Jack Bauer moves while being processed through Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 cinematics.
When it comes down to how well this "anime" was executed, it seemed very predictable and I couldn't help sensing the "been there, done that" feeling through the whole show. The characters seemed very generic and shallow. Without using examples from the show, the script seemed very campy most of the time. Especially the ending...
The CG is outstanding for an anime TV series. I felt as though I was watching
a Pixar short-film through the majority of the show.
The sound and effects were outstanding.
Although, not much was given to us in regards to the character's background and the story, the whole show felt more like it was only about guns, explosions and "cool" sounds.
Would I recommend this to other people? Sure, but not in a sense that it's the best thing on this planet. I will continue to watch it, but the impression I've gotten so far is that it's another hyped up "anime". I hope the producers prove me wrong.
