Takeshi was just an ordinary guy until a perfectly innocent study session with Michi - the most beautiful girl in the school - ended up with him being mysteriously transported into the strange dimension known as the Weiss Schwarz Battle Space. Once there, a crazy but enthusiastic old man informs him that he is the chosen warrior and must win a succession of card battles to get back home.

The only problem: he doesn't know how to play! However, with the expert Michi ready to teach him the ins and outs of this bizarre and improbably slapstick card game, Takeshi will learn the ropes and get ready for the card battle of a lifetime. Assuming he survives the training...

The Weiss Survive anime is a show that I highly recommend to all people of all age groups, regardless if you like anime or not.

Let's start with the story: Weiss Survive brilliantly portrays clashing forces between asian highschool students and the struggle to maintain their mental capacity in order to escape a dimension that they have created for themselves. The story was very creative and I give it a 10/10

Now, Art: There was boobs and a beautiful old man. 10/10

In the sound department: Hearing the main character getting abused as well as the sexual innuendos that symbolize the struggles of communism was very enriching. ...

Have you ever encountered a show that was difficult to rate because you didn't know what it was trying to be?

This is what I experienced with Weiss Survive.

As a commercial for the game Weiss Schwarz (which I love), it does a solid job of making you want to play the game. It isn't a Yu-Gi-Oh! quality story, but given that the entire "series" lasts 30 minutes that isn't surprising.

As an instructional video for the game, it fails miserably. They try to stick to the real rules somewhat, but they do such a horrible job of explaining what's happening that I'd be even ...

With only two minutes and thirty seconds worth each episode it starts out on a bad foot. Not that it gets any better from there. There is a plot however there really is no story, all it really is is just a general progression of events with scenes that have little substance to them. The premise is for a young boy to be pulled into an "Alice in Wonderland" realm, that is just as nonsensical, and to be some chosen worrier in battling via a card game that he has never played. He has his childhood friend Michi there to help him, who ironically is ...
