It is raining in Tokyo at night. A woman, named Kimura Yu, is caught in the rain. She has had lots of trauma in her life, because her parents were killed, and to make things worse she experiences another tragedy, her reliable councilor, Kanzaki, is killed. But Yu is "saved" by a mysterious detective named Takamizawa Kyosuke.
There are some people who like to search for the unknown, the not so popular stuff, just for the sake of find something new. I'm one of those, of course. Find something good and forgotten (or directly, unknown) is pretty neat... but for that, you have to dig a lot. And while digging up among the weirdest animes you could imagine (such as Twilight of the Cockroaches and Toshi Densetsu Monogatari Hikiko), I found Sin in the Rain. I usually give the verdict at the end of the review, but I'll make an exception today:
DON'T WATCH THIS. IT DOESN'T WORTH
But why I say such thing, and why I give a 1 to the final score (two traits almost exclusive for trolls)? Well...
The story of this OVA is interesting at least: a girl named Kimura is wandering around the town, very confused, and with a hazy memory. Later, she remembers: her mentor died in a suspicious way, and she fears that the police is after her. Luckily, the detective Takamizawa is willing to help her.
The animation is not bad. Not outstanding or anything, but it does the work. Same with the sound (the dective's seiyuu is Keiji Fujiwara, aka Leorio in Hunter x Hunter 2011 and Hughes in FMA).
Then, whats the problem with SitR? It's quite simple, actually: there's no conclusion. It was supposed to have more episodes, but apparently, Mook Animation (the studio responsible of this OVA) broke before the whole project could be finished. So, there's no ending. That's a shame, because Sin in the Rain look at least interesting, and it ended being just a waste of time.
So, this review is more a warning than anything else: don't waste your time with this. It just not worth it... at least now, that you know that the whole thing is an aborted project. There's no sense in watching something that has no end.
A algunas personas nos gusta adentrarnos en lo desconocido, en lo no tan popular, como para salirnos de la rutina. Nada más satisfactorio que encontrar, o redescubrir, algo olvidado! Escarbando entre los animes más raros, uno se encuentra de todo... y fue, obviamente, de esa forma que llegue a Sin in the Rain. Voy a dar mi veredicto ahora mismo:
NO VEAN ESTO, NO VALE LA PENA. Esa oración resume lo que pienso de SitR.
Por qué? Bueno...
La historia de esta OVA es interesante como mínimo: una chica llamada Kimura se encuentra confundida, vagando por la ciudad. Más tarde recuerda: su mentora murió de forma sospechosa, y teme que la policía está detrás de ella. Por suerte, el detective Takamizawa está dispuesto a ayudarla.
A nivel técnico no está mal, tanto animación como sonido, sin ser espectaculares, cumplen correctamente (la voz del detective la pone Keiji Fujiwara, o sea, Leorio en Hunter x Hunter 2011 y Hughes en FMA).
Entonces, cual es el problema de SitR? Es muy simple, no tiene conclusión. Se suponía que iba a haber más capítulos, pero, según parece, Mook Animation (los responsables de esta OVA) quebró antes de poder terminar el proyecto. Una lástima, porque lo que prometía como algo al menos interesante, termino siendo solo una pérdida de tiempo.
Así que esta review es más una advertencia que otra cosa: no pierdan su tiempo con Sin in the Rain. Simplemente, no vale la pena... o mejor dicho, no tiene sentido que vean algo que no tiene final.
También, vea bien, lector de MAL: muy probablemente, esta sea el único 1 no troll que usted verá en esta web. Ya esta, lo dije.
Story. Main character Kimura Yui lost a family. The psychiatrist helps to cope with the pulled hard stress. On one of sessions the girl felt badly and lay down on a couch. Having woken up, she finds the psychiatrist in a blood on the floor.
"- Whether do you know something about Yunko Kanzaka's murder?"
There is caption. At once there is a question: "Already end?"
Ideal epigraph to this roller is poem of Vladimir Vishnevsky "Oh, as the sofa came to an end suddenly". Probably, founders didn't have enough money for continuation shooting. It is a pity. The quite good series could
turn out. However the first and unique episode simply breaks. It is not open ending. It is not ending at all. I do not recommend to look: only frustration. (Itself looked casually: I thought that there will be an integral short thriller). Fiasco...
A monotonous anime based on exclusively human's feelings. Plus a little detective. The picture is subject, but incomplete and compressed. Characters are interesting. But aren't opened almost. The viewer sees any sincere throwings, but gradually starts to miss, for can't understand, from where they appeared in a plot … Posing is pleased. It is quite realistic. And it is qualitative. OST’s … Partly faceless, however, as well as an anime. But all create the same mood.
P.S. Whether did really money suffice? Maybe founders wanted to leave mysteriousness that we reflected and presented how to be developed events further. I think that. I will not be surprised, if the guy, who wrote the letter to the main character, appears the murderer. It is only guesses and as everything will occur further to solve only to you.
